Donald Trump Caught On Tape With Sexy Russian Spy Maria Butina
Michael Cohen made a surprise appearance in court. He was there to make a confession about his negotiations with Russia to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. This surprise confession opens a window on a little reported episode from VERY early in Donald Trump’s race for the Presidency.
Trump announced his intention to run for President on June 16, 2015
Less than one month later, Trump addressed the media at an event called FreedomFest.
During this press conference, Trump is asked by a Russian journalist to discuss the US sanctions against Russia.
Before I show you that clip, you need to know that over the last 6 years, the US has sanctioned Russia more than 60 times. These sanctions are intended to prevent Russia – the government, businesses and individuals — from doing certain things.
Oligarchs are prevented from moving money internationally, businesses are prevented from doing deals with American companies, the government is limited to whom it can sell oil.
The sanctions are a form of punishment for things like not complying with US sanctions against North Korea, supplying arms to Syria, civil rights violations, or hacking US companies and meddling in our elections.
OK. Back to FreedomFest. Trump is asked about these US sanctions…

This was the first time Trump had spoken about Russia. And people were shocked by his response.
Politicians and the media said they were the ramblings of a loon who would never actually win the Presidency. It didn’t make any sense. Why would a candidate for America’s president go soft on our #1 international enemy?
For 3 years we didn’t know the answer. Then, on November 29th, we got the answer.
Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s lawyer, plead guilty in a New York City courtroom to lying to the FBI. Back in 2017, the FBI asked Michael Cohen when he STOPPED negotiating with Russia to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Cohen said January of 2016.
Cohen said the project was dead and not a big deal.
That was a lie.
In fact, it was not dead. And it was a big deal. Michael Cohen was negotiating with Russia on a Trump Tower Moscow until at least June 14th, 2016 – 6 months LONGER than he previously said.
Now, here’s why that’s important. Remember, back on July 12th 2015, Trump stunned political watchers with his plan to remove US sanctions against Russia if elected. Well, one of the Russian businesses under US sanction was VTB Bank – a Russian state controlled bank.
Except, there was one particular US company that wanted very much to do business with VTB Bank…….Donald Trump.
You see, VTB Bank had agreed to finance the cost of construction of Trump Tower Moscow. So, if the sanctions were lifted, Trump could get his tower built.
So, while Trump was telling voters that his foreign policy objective as US president would be to be more friendly to Russia… to play nice with Putin… and get rid of US Sanctions… He would have personally benefitted enormously from the removal of those sanctions.
Trump would have been paid 4 million to license his name and millions more every year to manage the property.
Oh, and there’s one more delightful turn in this story: That Russian journalist who asked Trump the question about sanctions? Her name is Maria Butina. She is currently in a US jail accused of espionage – of being a SPY for Russia.
Butina worked as a spy for some of the same people Michael Cohen was negotiating with.
There’s still so much we don’t know about the conspiracy between Trump and Russia to get him elected… But the picture is becoming more and more clear every day.
