    Cohen’s attorney confirms payment:


    Avenatti’s report:


    Remember when Mueller stopped some oligarchs at the airport and questioned them? Guess who was one of them?



    But...But it’s a witchunt! Mueller is knocking at trump’s door but hey, you Trumpies can continue to worry about Obama’s legacy...you know the one that is free of being under investigation and having members of his administration indicted. Let’s see you spin the payments from a Russian oligarch to his very own attorney....try not to mention “But Hillary” when you do.

    Avenatti and Mueller BOSSIN! So Great!

    And Mueller is on it!

    So great!

    No ties to Russia, just money to Tinks' personal lawyer!

    Vekselberg detained last week, but the investigation is over!

    Tinks more exonerated by the day LOL

    According to a dossier published by Avenatti on Tuesday evening, “Vekselberg and his cousin Mr. Andrew Intrater routed eight payments to Mr. Cohen through a company named Columbus Nova LLC beginning in January 2017 and continuing until at least August 2017.”

    Relevance to Russian investigation into meddling into 2016 election?

    Thought so

    If true, a politically exposed person funneled cash to Cohen to suppress a news story potentially damaging to Trump.

    If true, of course. But that's the relevance.

    Yeah it’s pretty obvious.

    My question is why is he so deep in this? Also is he threatening the actually investigation into Cohen?

    That would be self evident to anyone for whom the elevator made it to the top floor, but not someone who claimed FISA had to do with Mueller or that Rosenstein is a Dem operative, but, alas, here we are.

    No, it was also released today that Mueller is investigating this as well. It's at the bottom of the OP.

    Remember, there are two investigations with Cohen, basically the Russian money he took (Mueller) and the American money he took (SDNY).

    Care to respond to the allegations, or are only 6 time bankrupt, 19 time sexual assaulters allowed to have books?

    Cohen has 3 clients. Care to explain why either the SCROTUS, RNC Financier, or Hannity needed Russian money funneled?

    Trump's "fixer" getting $500,000 from a sanctioned, Putin-linked Russian oligarch and Trump supporters are like "So? What's wrong with that? Seems perfectly legit to me", lol.

    Repeat after me Trumpsters:

    "There's no collusion. Nothing to see here. Absolutely no reason to suspect anything illegal or even inappropriate. So just move along."

    Just remember, Trump has nothing to do with Russia. No one associated with Trump has anything to do with Russia (except Manafort, Cohen, Flynn, Roger Stone, Carter Page, etc., etc.)

    Yep. They never learn. Once again the conspiracy theorists jump right over the impossibility that Mueller, a guy who has bullied anyone with the slightest connection to Trump and Russia, would turn the collusion smoking gun over to SDNY to prosecute.

    Okay ... seriously ... does anyone not believe this money was being funneled to Trump via Cohen?

    Which raises the question: For what purpose?

    No wonder Trump is crapping in his pants over the Mueller investigation and wants it over with. And had a complete meltdown when the FBI raided Cohen's office.

    Can't wait to hear Giuliani explain this all away, lol. That should be priceless.

    So you think Mueller detained the guy at the airport who made the payments because he studies flight patterns? Come on. Did you review this story at all?

    Glad you feel that way about the Hillary funded dossier relying on current and former Kremlin officials for intelligence

    Mueller is on this as well and Avenatti has been working with him.

    HAHAHHAHA

    Avenatti is leaking what exactly?

    Show us the laws he is breaking

    But Nunes isn't a leaker, even though his own office won't deny he is.

    That’s another very good question. They haven’t had any discovery in the Stormy case yet and much of this is non-public information.

    Interesting to see you call people “lems” when you actually hold Trump to a different standard than other government officials when all should be held to the same. Didn’t know it was possible to be this hypocritical.

    Utter nonsense. But I suppose Jerry Springers viewers had to find other programs to occupy themselves.
