Trump has said, “I have nothing to do with Russia. Haven’t made a phone call to Russia in years. Don’t speak to people in Russia.” Trevor quipped, “I don’t even know what a Russia is. I don’t even know. On my map there’s China, then there’s white China. I don’t even know about Russia.”
But some recent findings suggest otherwise. It came to light that Trump secretly signed a letter of intent to build a Trump Tower skyscraper in Moscow. The revelations come from emails turned over to Congress Monday by Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, spelling out Trump’s involvement in trying to get a major real estate deal in Russia involving what was going to be the tallest building in the world. This was at the same time he was running for president. “How can one person lie so big?” Noah exclaimed.
It turns out the middleman for this deal was Russian-born and Brooklyn-raised Felix Sater. The one-time FBI informant was also a convicted felon before he worked with Trump. And in emails between Sater and Trump’s lawyer, Sater’s message seemed pretty clear. Sater wrote, “Buddy, our boy can become president of the USA, and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this.”
Noah said, “These people are so heavy-handed, it’s almost like the emails were composed by a porn writer. That’s how blatant it is: ‘Hello, I just moved in next door, and I’m so horny for collusion.’”
Only time will tell how this “Buddy boy” email will affect the current investigation on Russian collusion by Congress and a separate probe by special counsel Robert Mueller.
