On Sunday, Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti published some troubling images that reveal Michael Cohen and Michael Flynn met with Qatari businessman Ahmed Al-Rumaihi at Trump Tower in December of 2016.
If you don’t follow why this is so bad for Trump and his people, it’s because after the meeting, Al-Rumaihi reportedly informed an associate that he bribed the Trump administration. As bad as that sounds, it gets taken to a whole new level when you revisit one of the ugliest aspects of the Trump-Russia dossier and realize Al-Rumaihi had a major hand in it.
There were a lot of ugly aspects to the dossier, so which ugly aspect are we referring to here? The deal to sell 19% of Russian oil giant Rosneft with an alleged 0.5% allotted for Trump, of course.
At the time of the deal, Ahmed Al-Rumaihi was a key player at a company called QIA, which negotiated the Rosneft sale. Then, just days after the Rosneft sale went through, we now know that Al-Rumaihi met with Trump’s top people at Trump Tower.
Seems a little suspicious, don’t you think? Spin it any way you want to, but considering the guy behind the Rosneft deal managed to pull it off, then met with Trump’s top people, and then told an associate he had successfully bribed them, you’re going to have a hard time selling it all as sheer coincidence.
Also, can we talk a little more about that 0.5% allotted for Trump? When you do the math, this means a a $250,000,000 payoff from the Kremlin, which was arranged during the election no less, and ultimately finalized once Russia successfully rigged the election in his favor. Did Trump take it? We can’t know for sure, but that’s the dollar amount based on the allegations.
