Palmer Report: Get your popcorn: Donald Trump’s favorite Russian mafia money launderer Felix Sater is testifying in public

Of all the strange aspects of Donald Trump’s life of crime, one of the most curious is his relationship with convicted Russian mafia money launderer Felix Sater. The Trump Organization and Sater partnered on the notoriously shady Trump Soho real estate project, with widespread media reports that Trump’s kids took the lead on the deal. Somewhere in there, Sater became a government informant.



Felix Sater’s name has come up quite a bit in the Trump-Russia scandal, but we still don’t know precisely what his role was in facilitating criminal activity between Donald Trump and the Russians. It looks like that’s about to change. House Intel Committee Chairman Adam Schiff just announced that Felix Sater will publicly testify before the committee on March 14th. This is notable for a few reasons.



First, this is going to be out in the open. This will offer a fascinating look into the Trump family’s relationship with money launderers like Felix Sater in particular, and with Russian organized crime in general. Second, based on his history as a federal informant, you have to figure Sater will be at least partly cooperative during his testimony, with no real desire to protect Trump at the risk of harming himself. Trump has long been pretending he doesn’t know who Sater is, which means Sater isn’t under any delusions about being magically pardoned; his one way out will be to sell Trump out.


But the real upshot is that this is happening a mere two weeks from now. Everything is now happening in increasingly rapid succession. Felix Sater will be far from the only Donald Trump associate to be swiftly hauled in to testify. And as House Democrats choose to put more witnesses on public display, it becomes clear that secrecy is becoming less important, which means prosecutors are closer than ever to busting the Trump-Russia scandal wide open.

The Criminal Pattern of the Trump Presidency becomes clearer and comes into the relief  more and more every day. The question is: where is the line when it becomes intolerable and obviously harmful to the country? We are very close to this line. Every insanity should meet its limits imposed  by the collective mind of the Society. And so does the insanity of the Trump Presidency. Mr. President, Methinks humbly that you ought to resign. It will be better for you and for the country in these circumstances. Give it a thought. – M.N. – 2.28.19

Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s exploding scandals are spiraling out of control

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Suffice it to say that it hasn’t been a good week for Donald Trump, if it doesn’t go down in history as the one that unraveled his presidency and much of the GOP along with it. He was out of the country while his former fixer Michael Cohen was called in to testify before Congress – further confirming many of the details about the Moscow Trump Tower project, Roger Stone, and Stormy Daniels, potentially giving House Democrats the answers they need to subpoena Trump’s taxes, and pushing Trump’s fiercest congressional loyalists over the edge.




It’s easy to forget that Alex Acosta’s Jeffrey Epstein scandal was the news focus only a few days ago – or that the Mueller investigation was supposed to have wrapped up this week. The scandals that once dominated the news cycle for a week are coming daily now, fast and furious with no signs of slowing down. This could have been a relatively good week for Donald: no more probe, and a successful summit with the brutal dictator he allegedly fell in love with, where he could at least claim to have made some progress meeting with North Korea, and the media would have given him the benefit of the doubt. Neither of those things happened.




There were some warning signs earlier this week, when former CIA official Jeremy Bash spoke on MSNBC about his suspicion that Donald Trump would cave even further to Kim Jong-Un than he did in Singapore last summer. After all, Trump badly needed a win, so he’d be eager to please, with fewer fans willing to buy commemorative coins from this summit. Kim Jong-Un, by comparison, has managed to get a seat at the table with the United States and hasn’t destroyed a single missile since the last summit – so why start now? Sure enough, he expressed some vague interest in denuclearization yet again, and Trump left the summit saying it doesn’t have to happen in a hurry.



The summit turned out even worse than we anticipated – ending two hours early with no written agreement. Naturally, Donald Trump blames it on North Korea asking for a total lift of sanctions. Perhaps even he knows that any deal made after the unproductive Singapore talks would be scrutinized heavily. Perhaps he was overwhelmed by the news back home. Either way, time is clearly no longer on Donald Trump’s side.

Palmer Report: John Kelly sold out Jared Kushner

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Today we all learned what we’ve all long suspected: Donald Trump personally ordered that Jared Kushner be given top security clearance, even after White House officials determined that Kushner was a security risk. The fascinating part is that former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is the one who sold out Trump and Kushner on this. Here’s why that matters.




When Donald Trump gave the order about Jared Kushner’s security clearance, then-White House Counsel Don McGahn wrote a memo aimed at legally distancing himself from the decision, according to today’s New York Times bombshell. This comes as no surprise, as it’s long been widely reported that McGahn has been selling Trump out to Robert Mueller for some time. But the Times says John Kelly also wrote a memo about the incident, at the same time, and for the same reason.




So how did John Kelly’s memo end up in the hands of the New York Times today? We don’t know that part yet. But Kelly clearly gave his memo to someone. It’s impossible to imagine a situation in which Kelly is giving his memo to the media, but hasn’t already given it to prosecutors. So it’s a given that Robert Mueller and the SDNY already have this memo. What’s fascinating here is the timing of its release.



Jared Kushner just met forty-eight hours ago with Saudi Arabian Crown Prince and brutal murderer Mohammad bin Salman. The two appear to have a corrupt financial relationship that strikes at the heart of why Kushner is a security risk. Now suddenly John Kelly’s memo is being fed to the media, in a way that puts the focus on Kushner’s questionable loyalty to the United States. That’s likely not a coincidence.
