Trump SoHo has drawn particular attention, however, for its ties to alleged money laundering from Russian and Kazakh oligarchs. Hopes for the project’s profits took a hit in 2007 after the past of one of Trump’s partner in the deal, Felix Sater of development group Bayrock, emerged. Sater, a Brooklynite financier born in Russia, had previously served time for stabbing a man with a margarita glass in the 1990s, and avoided prison for a stock scam by becoming a government witness.
Records show that Bayrock received millions for Trump Soho from an Icelandic bank popular with the Russian elite getting money out of their country, and that companies linked to Kazakh oligarchs Viktor Khrapunov and Mukhtar Ablyazov bought apartments worth more than $3 million there.
… first reported by The New York Times from late 2015 show that Sater spoke with Trump lawyer Michael Cohen about pursuing a deal for a Trump Tower in Moscow during the presidential primary campaign.
