Donald Trump keeps saying that he has nothing to do with the Russians. Most recently, he made this claim in his White House press conference last week: “I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia. I have no loans in Russia. I don’t have any deals in Russia.” He said it at a press conference in early January, too.
Hopefully, you’ve already seen the New York Times piece from this weekend detailing how Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen took a dossier to Michael Flynn that had been provided to him by a pro-Russian Ukrainian politician named Andrii V. Artemenko and a Russian mob-connected former employee of the Trump Organization named Felix Sater.
The dossier reportedly contained damaging information about the anti-Russian Ukrainian president, Petro O. Poroshenko, that the Trump administration could conceivably use to oust him. It also contained some kind of Russian-Ukrainian “peace plan” that would facilitate the lifting of sanctions on Russia.
At this point --- we need to stress the "real" importance behind the lifting of sanctions on Russia. The U.S.'s new Secretary of State --- Rex Tillerson, was the FORMER CEO Of EXXON-MOBIL. In 2012 He entered negotiations with the Kremlin to join forces with the Russians to extrapolate nearly one-trillion dollars worth of oil that lay in the Arctic Ocean North Of Russia --- just waiting to be brought up to the ground and sold for enormous revenues! With the invasion of the Ukraine by The Russians & Putin in 2014 President Obama placed severe sanctions on the Russians which also froze in place Rex Tillerson's trillion-dollar Arctic Ocean oil venture agreement with the Russians.
