‘All We Need Is Putin’: Leaked Emails Prove Trump Sought Out Help From Russia To Win Election
BuzzFeed News released a bombshell on Tuesday that could very well be the key piece to proving Donald Trump sought out help from Russian President Vladimir Putin to win the 2016 presidential election.
The report revealed that Trump’s constant praise for Putin was part of a behind-the-scenes effort by his family and associates to build a high rise in Moscow.
According to BuzzFeed News, Trump constantly praised Putin during his campaign but also denied having any business ties to Russia — all while his attorney Michael Cohen and others on the Trump Organization payroll negotiated the Moscow development.
The news site shared an extensive timeline detailing the events that took place behind the scenes as Trump was preparing for the presidential election.
Negotiations were hot and heavy in October 2015, when Cohen and Trump associate Felix Sater were working to secure a deal to build the 100-story tower — and to forge a closer relationship with Russia and its president.
“All we need is Putin on board and we are golden, meeting with Putin and top deputy is tentatively set for the 14th,” Sater emailed Cohen on Oct. 12, 2015. “See buddy I can not only get Ivanka to spin in Putins Kremlin office chair on 30 minutes notice, I can also get a full meeting.”
Just days after the email was sent out and he received a signed letter of intent from a Moscow developer, Trump shared a story from the Washington Examiner on his Twitter page with the headline “Putin Loves Donald Trump.”
11 days after Trump’s tweet, a final version of the letter was signed Oct. 28, 2015, by Trump and Russian developer Andrey Rozov, according to the documents.
“Michael my next steps are very sensitive with Putin’s very very close people, we can pull this off,” Sater emailed Cohen on Nov. 3, 2015. “Michael let’s go. 2 boys from Brooklyn getting a USA president elected.”
“Putin gets on stage with Donald for a ribbon cutting for Trump Moscow,” he said in another email that same day, “and Donald owns the republican (sic) nomination. And possibly beats Hillary and out boy is in. I’ll take the Ambassadorship to the Bahamas so I can fish and dive, and be a hero to my kids. That my friend is the home run that I want out of this.”
