Potential new links between Donald Trump’s inner circle and the Kremlin continue to come to the light. And the newest name to surface is none other than the president’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, who is also a senior White House adviser.
The first daughter allegedly connected Michael Cohen, the president’s embattled lawyer, to a Russian weightlifter in 2015 who said he could introduce Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin
The latest leaked emails to Buzzfeed show that Michael Cohen had a short discussion with a former Russian weightlifter who was hoping to build a Trump Tower in Russia.
And Ivanka Trump was urging Cohen to speak with the Russian. This is all they got. Nothingburger after Nothingburger.The deal fell through after a few text messages were exchanged.The liberal conspiracy media is running with this nonsense today.
The Hill reported:
White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump connected President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, with a Russian who offered help with a Moscow Trump Tower, BuzzFeed News reported.
According to sources and emails reviewed by the news outlet, Ivanka Trump communicated with an athlete during the presidential campaign who had offered to introduce President Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin to facilitate the building of a Trump Tower in Moscow.
Ivanka Trump told Cohen he should speak with the former Olympic weightlifter, Dmitry Klokov, in November 2015 and Cohen then had at least one conversation with him, according to sources who spoke with BuzzFeed.
The bodybuilder reportedly told Cohen in an email that he could set up a meeting between President Trump and Putin to facilitate building the Moscow Trump Tower, but Cohen later refused and said the Trump Organization already had an agreement and that he would stop communicating with Klokov.
The emails showed that Klokov lashed out at Cohen and questioned his authority to make decisions for the Trump Organization. Ivanka Trump was also frustrated at Cohen’s refusal to communicate with Klokov, according to BuzzFeed.
