President Donald Trump may be “going to prison,” one of his former business partners, Felix Sater, allegedly told sources.
According to The Spectator, people familiar with the matter told the publication that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump and his inner circle may be producing important leads involving a possible money laundering scheme. And if the report is correct, then Trump himself may have confirmed it when he allegedly said that “it’s possible there’s a condo or something, so, you know, I sell a lot of condo units, and somebody from Russia buys a condo, who knows?”
Sater, who's been called one of the president's “shadiest” former business partners by Raw Story, allegedly told family and friends he and Trump are going to prison.
Sater is reportedly cooperating with the investigation.
Being one of the main individuals involved in the alleged sales of condos to foreigners, this could mean he might have enough dirt on the president to help get him in trouble.
As he allegedly became involved in the probe, Sater told New York magazine, “[i]n about the next 30 to 35 days, I will be the most colorful character you have ever talked about.”
“Unfortunately,” he continued, “I can’t talk about it now, before it happens. And believe me, it ain’t anything as small as whether or not they’re gonna call me to the Senate committee.”
Still, Sater told the magazine, “[t]he next three years of hearings about Trump and Russia will yield absolutely nothing.”
Despite that statement, The Spectator's sources seem to claim Sater believes otherwise.
As Raw Story reports, former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort is also reportedly talking to Mueller, making the story involving Sater and the possible money laundering scheme only fuel more rumors about how much the special counsel already has on the president.
Whatever it is, Trump may be in for a long ride.
