Trump’s Face-Stabbing Mob Partner

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 5:08 am



Telegraph (a bunch of lefties who can be safely ignored):

A rRussian-born fraudster who Donald Trump has claimed he would not recognise was a key player in several of the billionaire’s business ventures, the Telegraph can disclose.

Mr Trump signed off on paperwork which made clear that Felix Sater was one of the figures in “control” of Bayrock Group, the property firm building three developments using his name, an investigation has found.

The findings appear to contradict statements by the would-be president and his lawyer, distancing him from Sater, who was convicted for helping to lead a $40 million mafia-linked stock fraud scheme.

Mr Sater also spent time in jail for stabbing someone in the face with the stem of a margarita glass.

I call BS. Those glasses have round bottoms so they can sit on the table. How are you supposed to stab someone with something round? You ever try that? It doesn’t work!!

[end Trumpkin-style spin]

Ah, hell. Y’all spin this on your own. I’m out, remember?

  3. A few more deals like that and he’ll catch up with Hillary’s $140 million charity foundation scheme or Algores billion dollar man-made global warming scheme, or Jim Corzine’s……you get the point. If Trump was still a democrat the media wouldn’t give a rat’s butt.

    The media would be celebrating how diverse Trump is in his business dealings. How is a Globalist who works with people in all cultures and creeds. Like the Clinton Global Initiative ….

  5. The real scandal is how Clinton and Family use the Global Initiate to live like Billionaires without paying taxes while selling Influence.

    The bigger the fraud by the Left, the less the media covers it.

    Like Stalin and the NYTimes or their silence on Mao.

    Isn’t Trump claiming that he’s worth between $4 billion and $10 billion, depending on how he feels, and sued one reporter for saying he wasn’t all that rich?

  9. “Chudi Ejekam was, at all relevant times a contractor of Bayrock and never served as an employee at the firm. Bayrock had no role or participation in any of the reported residential real estate deals facilitated by Mr. Ejekam,” a spokesperson for Bayrock wrote in a statement.
    George, a former basketball star at the University of Connecticut and the New Jersey Nets who became a developer, was convicted of defrauding several investors between 2005 and 2011. In January, a federal jury sentenced him to nine years in prison.
    Two of his victims testified that they invested in a small-scale Chicago residential project George was working on with Ejekam in 2006. One of the victims, an engineer named Ralph Ramsey, said Ejekam’s connection to Trump gave them confidence in the investment. “From what I recollect, Tate said that Chudi worked for a company named Bay Rock and that was connected with Donald Trump, and he essentially facilitated a lot of the investment opportunities connected with Trump,” Ramsey said in a court testimony, recalling his first meeting with George and Ejekam.

    Sounds like independent third party confirmation that Trump never met your mob guy.

  13. To slightly simplify matters: Donald Trump has been bought by Russia or at least right now he’s loyal to Putin, whom, he once said in a debate, he got to know very well in the non-existent green room of the CBS show 60 Minutes. (or at least Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio understood him to be saying that because it hardly makes any sense otherwise.)

    While Hillary Clinton has been bought by China, various Gulf states, sundry ‘stans and a whole assortment of crooks and dictators.

    However, in some respects, Russia and China are allies.

    True.

    And you would say they were hacks for overlooking his sleaze, criminality, and corruption.

    The most annoying thing democrat hacks do is refuse to answer any sleaze demonstrated on their side. They just stubbornly respond with ‘but some republican did this once’. Even if it’s not really related, that’s how they spin the unspinnable stuff. Because they are hacks.

    I hope you get what I’m saying about you.

  21. For papertiger:

    Memory Lapse? Trump Seeks Distance From ‘Advisor’ With Past Ties to Mafia

    Though he touts his outstanding memory, when Donald Trump was asked under oath about his dealings with a twice-convicted Russian émigré who served prison time and had documented mafia connections, the real estate mogul was at a loss.

    Even though the man, Felix Sater, had played a role in a number of high-profile Trump-branded projects across the country.

    “If he were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn’t know what he looked like,” Trump testified in a video deposition for a civil lawsuit two years ago.

    ***

    Trump and Sater can be seen together in photographs attending a Denver business conference in 2005, and the two men posed on stage together at the 2007 launch party for the Trump SoHo Hotel and Condominium project. And in 2010, according to Trump’s lawyer, Sater was provided business cards by the Trump Organization identifying him as a “senior advisor” to Trump.

    The photos of them together and of Sater’s Trump business card are at the link. New York Democrats Trump and Hillary have remarkably poor memories, don’t they?

    DRJ (15874d)

  22. Here is the link if you are interested in looking. You may not be but others might.

    DRJ (15874d)

  23. DRJ, I just don’t take Mr. Feet seriously. Trust me, he doesn’t take anything anyone says or thinks or writers seriously. He is a lazy, angry, and vulgar man. Even Patterico calls him a troll, and even that doesn’t give him pause. People who supported him for years are angry. No big deal. He just wants to stink things up.

    I mean, we get serious cognitive dissonance from him with every post.

    First, HRC is so awful that DJT is a fine alternative.

    Except he didn’t feel that way about any other number of Republican contenders, all of whom he smeared, insulted, and lied about 24/7.

    So I, um, doubt the seriousness and veracity of his claims. Also, his attention to facts.

    Now we hear that we need a more accomplished criminal in office.

    I suspect that this is what drives many Trump voters.

    And it is the death of this nation, far more than supposedly cute but vulgar quips about STDs, urinary incontinence, or ugly wives.

    I appreciate Trump supporters who are throwing up their hands and saying they have no choice but to vote for this huckster. What I cannot respect are hypocrites.

    They are the problem, and they beat their drums every day trying to create memes.

    Our coarse culture created Trump.

    And we let it happen.

    Simon Jester (4f347d)

  24. I seem to remember a prominent Chinese bundler of illegal political contributions for the Clintons. I heard he stabbed a rival in the face with a chopstick. Or something like that.

    I agree that the “stem” of a margarita glass sounds improbable. But if you broke that round base off–just like breaking the neck of a beer bottle, you might have something you could use in a bar fight. But the kind of twerk that drinks a margarita in a bar where brawls are likely to occur ain’t much of a fighter. For that you need a shot and a beer.

    Skeptical Voter (1d5c8b)

  25. Also, papertiger, your link says Chudi Ejekam was affiliated with Bayrock which was a co-developer with Trump. However, they weren’t involved in the particular deal that Ejekam was sentenced for fraud. I think it’s clear Trump wasn’t involved in the Ejekam case.

    Howecer, that tells us nothing about whether Trump and Sater (of Bayrock, which has been linked to Trump since the early 2000’s) have a relationship and/or have ever met. They have. Even Trump’s attorney Alan Garten acknowledges Sater knew and worked with Trump:

    Trump’s attorney says the real estate mogul had minimal interaction with Sater on the various joint ventures with Bayrock, and so had no reason to probe deeply into his background.

    “To be clear,” Garten told ABC News, “Mr. Sater’s involvement in the projects, the projects that went forward, SoHo and Fort Lauderdale, may have existed in the beginning, but long term there was very little involvement.”

    Sater’s alleged ties to organized crime were more widely publicized in December 2007 when The New York Times published an article featuring Sater’s ties to Trump and describing his “tangled past.” The article reported that Sater “had been an ‘unindicted co-conspirator’ and a key figure in a $40 million scheme involving 19 stockbrokers and organized crime figures from four Mafia families.”

    This is not a new story. It’s more of the New York garbage Trump brings with him, just like the garbage Hillary brings.

    DRJ (15874d)

  26. Simon,

    It’s much better now that we have trumpyfeet’S comments to balance his out.

    DRJ (15874d)

  27. Simon has happyfeet figured out. I’m frustrated with the GOP much as happy has been, albeit I believe he’s motivated more by social issues and I’m motivated by the apathy our leadership (management is a more appropriate word) has shown as the country’s future dims and dims.

    I think so much of this, from many of Trump’s fans, is a middle finger at the process. You can’t beat that with evidence. If Trump is a fraud so much the better for flipping us off with.

    Dustin (2a8be7)

  28. Trump has no organizational and management skills, and doesn’t even pretend to:

    Donald Trump said Thursday that he plans to outsource key aspects of his presidential campaign to the Republican National Committee.

    Trump’s shoestring operation was good enough to win a primary, succeeding on his ability overwhelm opponents by dominating the new cycle. But Trump Tower is woefully unprepared to take on Hillary Clinton, lacking any semblance of a sophisticated field or digital program.

    Yes, I do get what you’re saying about me Dustin, you’re calling me a hack. So what did I do to earn that slur? Simply pointing out that if Trump remained a democrat he would get the proverbial pass from the press in some way targets me as a hack. You realize since we’re mostly on the same side here calling an ally names is rather stupid. Why not save it for Hillary?

    I understand your not wanting to vote for Trump because of sleaze Dustin. But you’re planning to vote for Hillary so there’s some serious logical disconnect there.

    Gerald A (945582)

  35. Maybe he is Jewish:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simeon_ben_Zoma#Notable_Quotes

    “Ben Zoma would say:

    Who is wise? He who learns from everyone. As is stated (Psalms 119:99): “From all my teachers I have grown wise”;

    Who is strong? He who controls his impulses. As is stated (Proverbs 16:32), “Better one who is slow to anger than one with might, one who rules his spirit than the captor of a city.”;

    Who is rich? He who is happy with what he has. As is stated (Psalms 128:2): “If you eat of toil of your hands, fortunate are you, and good is to you”; “fortunate are you” in this world, “and good is to you” in the World to Come;

    Who is honored? He who honors everyone! As is stated (I Samuel 2:30): “For to those who honor me, I accord honor; those who scorn me shall be demeaned;”.

    — Pirkei Avot, Chapter 4a

    Although Ben Zoma himself was a tragic case: He became so lost in mystical thinking that seeing the Divine Chariot in vision made him insane.

    Simon Jester (4f347d)

  39. BTW, speaking of rabbinic literature, this came to my mind this morning

    Amongst Pharaoh’s advisers or counselors were Balaam, Job, and Jethro. Balaam advocated the persecution of the Israelites; as a retribution, he fell by the sword. Job was silent, and would not advise either way, and he had his punishment for this act of unfriendliness. Jethro would not countenance any suggestion of persecution, and was rewarded by having his family raised to greatness (1 Chron. ii.).

    http://www.sacred-texts.com/jud/mhl/mhl06.htm

    In other words, staying silent can itself be sinful. In our context, accepting either Trump or Hillary as fit for the office of POTUS is staying silent.

    DRJ (15874d)

  41. It means that he only cares about appearances and thus is all show with no substance. Like Trump.

    DRJ (15874d)

  42. Thank you, Simon. Yes, that is one of my favorite all-time movie scenes and I thought of it when I typed my comment.

    You click it, too, Hoagie. The Youtube link at Simon’s comment 39.

    nk (dbc370)

  43. If you like hat instead of cattle, then you only care about appearances and don’t care about substance.

    That isn’t my impression of you. It is my impression of Trump and his supporters, who love the fancy gold-plating but hate details and accuracy.

    DRJ (15874d)

  44. Trump likes rallies and adulation but doesn’t want to organize a campaign or get-out-the-vote effort. Typical New Yorker. All talk. He makes Obama look competent. At least Obama knew to organize his campaign.

    DRJ (15874d)

  45. DRJ (15874d) — 5/27/2016 @ 9:07 am

    More likely, he knows the RNC will do it for him, so why should he pay for it.

    There is one advantage to having a hat, in preference to cattle: You are protected from avian excremental products. On the other hand, you can’t eat a hat.

    kishnevi (870883)

  46. I don’t think Trump plans to campaign much in Texas. It doesn’t appear to be one of the 15 states he’s targeting.

    Silly Trump. His entire Texas outreach is one Web page telling Texans to contact their local county GOP chairman, and that page is just a copy of similar pages for other states. What a lazy New Yorker he is.

    DRJ (15874d)

  47. The RNC is supset to support all GOP candidates at the local, state and national level, kishnevi. Trump’s Presidential campaign is going to drain the RNC’S resources for other Republican candidates. It is a disaster for other Republicans and the Party unless Trump is another Reagan, and there is no evidence he is. It appears his win was largely because he motivated Republicans who don’t usually vote in primaries to turn out.

    DRJ (15874d)

  48. DRJ, I continue to think DJT is a sham candidate to get HRC elected.

    Your posts support that contention, I fear.

    But yes, he is very lazy and arrogant. A bad combination.

    Simon Jester (4f347d)

  49. Well, if my past experience of GOP GOTV is any indication, no one should expect much. You would think that before robocalling people to vote in a closed primary, they would check to make sure those people were registered as Republicans….but I’m not, and I got robocalled. (To be fair, this could have been an artifact of Romney’s GOTV for the 2012 primary, when I first such a call.)

    sadfeet (ddead1)

  51. Just to clear it up, as apparently I am the extreme example:

    I plan to vote for Hillary. It’s a sober and serious decision. I do not wish for her to be president, but I love my country and I really do think the worst of Trump.

    He will commit egregious violations of our constitution. He will get people killed. I can’t help him have nuclear weapons.

    As terrible as Hillary is, I prefer four years of her corruption to four years of Trump’s. I think it’s a pretty tough call and I don’t think less of those who think Trump is the lesser of two evils, and soberly vote for Trump well aware that he’s a terrible person. On the other hand, there are some partisans who simply assume it is not possible to be worse than the boogeyman of the day, be that John Kerry, Hillary, LBJ, whatever the democrats run today. That’s absurd. It’s certifiable. It’s the kind of thinking that we call our on the left, and it’s the real problem that got us here.

    The first is plausible but is clearly more likely of Clinton.

    In what way will Trump get people killed? You mean by using nukes? I know of nothing that he’s said that would suggest that. Clinton has arguably already gotten people killed.

    DRJ (15874d)

  70. By the way, that’s your word, not mine. Castro looks like añ Hispanic guy to me.

    DRJ (15874d)

  71. Some of it is cultural difference: a lot of Latinos are more into fashion and maintaining sexual appeal than is the norm among Anglos. Which means that sometimes an Anglo will perceive effeminate behavior, but in reality it is behavior that is well within the norm of hetero male behavior among Latinos. Bleach blonde mayors are an example. In fact Castro is married with two children, and his twin brother the Congressman is not actually married with two children of his own.

    kishnevi (e93d54)

  72. 70… My comment holds after seeing that blonde pic, DRJ. My wife, and half my family are Americans of Mexican descent and my kids are also all-American with some spice from their mama. My outreach goes deep.

    By the time [Ed] Schultz resurfaced this January, he had been reincarnated in a very different journalistic form: as a prime-time host, reporter and political analyst for RT America, the U.S. branch of the global cable network formerly known as Russia Today, funded by the Russian government.

    Gone is the praise for Obama and Clinton. Gone, too, are the mocking references to “Putie.” And gone are the judgments about others’ patriotism. Schultz’s 8 p.m. RT show, The News with Ed Schultz, now features Putin-friendly discussions about the failings of U.S. policy in the Middle East, America’s “bloated” defense budget and the futility of NATO strategy.
