140 Paths to Putin

 

I started making this list out of sheer curiosity of how many different paths there were. At 18, I thought to myself that there couldn’t be many more. A few of these are just rumors or probably mean nothing (1, 22, 25, 31) but the sheer number of Russian mobsters who have lived at Trump tower and the fact that 5 people have had to resign , I thought I was done. For me to get to 99 (and counting)  is astonishing.

Honestly the discovery that surprised me the most is the Abramoff connection. I’m beginning to think that the Russians partnered with the Republican party in the 1990s to build an alliance for reasons not yet known.

  1. Trump’s son in Law is Jared Kushner, the former owner of the Observer. The Observer received the DNC hacks from Guccifer 2.0 who is rumored to be a Russian agent.
  2. Guccifer 2.0 and Roger Stone were apparently in contact up to 16 times during the 2016 campaign.
  3. Jared Kushner’s parents were friends with Netanyahu. He has forged an alliance with Putin.SCL-Russia
  4. His Chief Strategist is Steve Bannon. Bannon is the CEO of Breitbart, with the Mercer family having majority ownership.  The Mercers, along with Bannon are heavily involved in Cambridge Analytica a data gathering firm.
  5. Cambridge Analytica’s parent company is SCL Group, which lists Dmitry Firtash as a board member. Breitbart and Bannon have extensive ties to the far right movement in Europe which is also funded by Putin.
  6. His second campaign manager was Paul Manafort. He had to resign in August due to having questionable Russian ties like Dmitry Firtash and the former Ukrainian President. Manafort lives in Trump tower, along with Kellyanne Conway and her husband.
  7. Hacked Texts reveal that it looks like Serhiy Leshchenko reached out to Manaforts daughter in an effort to blackmail him. She was not happy about the “blood money’
  8. Mike McSherry, former Delegate strategist for the Trump campaign also lobbied for the same Ukrainian presidential candidate as Paul Manafort.
  9. Rick Gates,  Manaforts top aide also lobbied for Pro-Putin Ukrainian candidate.
  10. Per Politico,  Manafort met with Konstantin Kilimnik multiple times during the campaign. The first time appears to be in April, maybe when Trump gave that speech? Kilimnik is thought to be part of Russian intelligence.
  11. They worked Oleg Deripaska on investment funds in Ukraine. Oleg paid Manafort 10 million dollars a year to lobby for Putin.
  12.  Oleg Deripaska obtained a VISA to enter this country, after previously being barred from entry due to the lobbying activities of Bob Dole.
  13. Firtash worked with Russian Mob Semion Moglivech boss to help Gazprom oversee Natural Gas distribution to Ukraine.
  14. Trump advisor J.D. Gordon is claiming that he was the advisor who had the Ukraine language softened at the Republican National Convention, at the request of Donald Trump
  15. Kellyanne Conway’s husband has business dealings with the  Russian government and deleted tweets about it once Conway was chosen. (Conway, Bannon, and the Mercers are part of the “Council on National Policy” a secretive far right think tank group.

  17. George Conway represented a firm that bribed the Russian government.
  18. Trump sold his condo to Dmitry Rybolovev, whose private plane keeps showing up where Trump is. Rybolovev is a Russian billionaire with ties to Putin.

  21. Kissinger suggested both Tillerson and KT McFarland to Trump.
  22. Secretary of State TillersonAlf has many Russian business dealings through Exxon with Igor Sechin, head of Rosneft.
  23. CNI Board Member Drew Guff runs a Russian Private Equity firm, attended the April Speech by Trump, and also sits on the International Council at the Belfour Center with Oleg Deripaska
  24. The Dossier Christopher Steele created said that Igor Sechin along with Oleg Orovinkin were working on a deal to sell 19.5% of Rosneft to Trump in exchange for dropping sanctions. This deal relied on Carter Page, who resigned as a Trump advisor in September. After the election, a 19.5% deal went through, Oleg Orovkin was found dead in his car and the guy behind the Russian Hacking was arrested for treason in Russia.

QHG shares was the holding company of the 19.5% sale. QHG’s disclosure form stated that it used to be called CATALPO PTE, but no such company existed. Perhaps they did that to confuse people. Anyways, a company with the same information called CATALPA PTE did exist though. Catalpa shared an address with the Intertrust Group. Intertrust’s filing shows an affiliation with Walkers Global which is the affiliation used to incorporate QHG. Intertrust is owned by the Blackstone Group.  If that name seems familiar, it is because Blackstone CEO is Stephen Schwarzman, one of Trump’s senior economic advisors.  Uncovered thanks to twitter user Adam Khan.
  29. The Blackstone Group was cofounded by Stephen Schwarzman and CNI Board Member Peter Peterson.
  30. Schwarzman was on the Advisory board of the Russian Investment fund.

  53. Preet Bhahara was fired by the President, along with the other U.S. Attorneys in what is a common move when a new party take power. The odd thing is that Trump had previously asked him stay on.  Bhahara is the Attorney responsible for putting Victor Bout and the Russian gambling ring in jail. He also prosecuted one Russian for drug trafficking, a dozen Russian spies, and a Russian Banker. 3 days before being fired, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington requested that he investigate Trump Tower.

  57. Trump Tower housed an office of Alfa Bank which had a private server communicating with companies like Spectrum Health,  which lists members of the Devos Family as Board Members.  This might be innocent, but why then is Alfa Bank suing the people who broke this storystory?
  58. Richard Burt, a Republican Lobbyist and CNI Board Member sat on the board of Alfa Bank. He worked for the Trump Campaign while lobbying for Russian State owned Gazprom
  59. Burt was an advisor to Textron Inc, a financial company help finance some of Trump’s international golf course deals.
  60. Squire Patton Boggs is a Law firm created in 2014 after Squire Sanders Dempsey and Patton Boggs combined. Squire Sanders was focused on Eastern Europe and Russian Affairs, which explains why one of its partners, Sarah Carey, consistently showed up at the Lozansky forums.  Jim Jatras, a former Reaganite who writes articles with Ed Lozansky all over the place also worked at Squire Sanders.  More on Jatras in the Lozansky portion.
  61. In recent years, Gazprom has hired  Squire Patton Boggs to lobby for it.  Lobbyist and Trump supporter Jack Kingston visited Russia the same week as former Gazprom lobbyist Carter page. Totally a coincidence.

  76. Mogilevich key lieutenant Vyacheslav Ivankov also lived at Trump tower.
  77. Jack Abramoff may be where it all starts. Russian Oil and Gas company NAFTAsib formed a shell company called Chelsea Commercial, which only listed Abramoff and Patrick Pizzella as lobbyists when it was created.  The purpose of Chelsea was to promote Russian oil and trade interests in the United States.  It also underwrote the trip Tom Delay and Ed Buckham made to Russia with Abramoff.  Pizzella also happens to work for Trump. Buckham formed the Alexander Strategy Group to help the US Family Network funnel its money received from Naftasib. The US Family network was primarily a vehicle consisting of Buckham, Delay, Ralph Reed, CNI Board Member Grover Norquist and Abramoff.

  83. Jones Day opened a Moscow office in 2013 after it successfully worked with AlfaBank (MIkhail Fridman) and Renova Group (Viktor Vekselberg) to create an oil producer with BP, called TNK-BP. It has since been bought out by Rosneft. From there, Mcgahn signed on to work for the Trump Presidential Campaign.

  90. Sebastian Gorka worked for Viktor Orban, a Hungarian authoritarian leader close to Putin, before moving to the United States to work for the Republicans. Now he works for the Trump White House.
  91. Connie Mack also sees better relations overall due to his lobbying for Hungary
  92. Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, widely regarded as Russia’s top spy, was revealed to have met with Attorney General Sessions twice last year in his capacity as a Senator. He also met with Jared Kushner and Michael Flynn in December.  Also, when the Republicans removed anti-Russia language from the Platform at the convention? It was because Trump advisors Carter Page and JD Gordon met with Kislyak.
  93. Trump advisor Rudy Giuliani lobbied for Rosneft
  94. Jim Baker lobbied Trump to nominate Tillerson as Secretary of State, possibly because of the fact that his firm represents both Exxon and Gazprom/Rosneft
  95. The Former head of Yukos is a Trump backer and campaign donor.
  96. CNI Board Member David McCormick is an executive at Bridgewater Associates where James Comey served as General Counsel prior to joining the FBI.  They also both worked Din the Bush administration, albeit in different cabinet departments

  98. CNI Board Members Dmitri K. Simes and Paul Saunders have hosted events Trump has spoken at, and Simes has been referred to by Putin as his American Friend
  99. It makes sense that Putin and Simes are close, given that Simes and Edward Lozansky share the same goal of a US-Russian alliance.  Simes and Lozansky (and Dana Rohrabacker, Rand Paul) met to discuss this at a conference in 2012.
  100. Rand Paul, Trump’s apparent new ally hired Dmitry Simes and Richard Burt as foreign policy advisors before running for president .
  101. Donald Trump met with Ambassador Kislyak during the Presidential Campaign, which looks like nothing until you remember he had previously denied any such meetings.
  102. Trump ally David Clarke visited Moscow the same week as Michael Flynn.  His trip was paid for by a Russian gun rights group headed by Maria Butina and included several NRA heads. Butina is close with long time Republican strategist Paul Erickson.
  103. Trump is also tied to Butina through her ties at the Center for The National Interest.
  104. Maria Butina is in this gun rights group with Alexander Torshin, an alleged Russian mafia boss.  Torshin is a member of the N.R.A. and was recently scheduled to meet with Donald Trump in public, before somebody decided to be smart and cancel the meeting or at least move it to MarOlago.
  105. Torshin had dinner with Donald Trump Jr. at an NRA event.
  106. Why the hell did Steve Bannon meet with Torshin and Butina over dinner?
  107. Sergei Millian, a Russian born real estate developer has close ties to Trump and to Michael Cohen.  It is also said that he may have been behind some of the dirty claims in the dossier.
  108. Trump advisor Boris Epshteyn is a Russian born Pro-Putin immigrant, who has spent a lot of time talking about Crimea on television. He resigned on 3/25/17.
  109. Secretary of the Air Force nominee Heather Wilson founded Keystone International in order to foster business relations Between the United States and Russia
  110. Mark Burnett helped remake Trumps image into a successful reality star, ran his inauguration festivities and has worked with Putin on reality television. Grant Stern does a fantastic job laying out the case that Burnett could have been the guy in the middle of all of this.
  111. Edward Lozansky is a controversial figure at the heart of US-Russia relations over the past 30 years. He openly advocates for a closer alliance in order to bring down Isis. Lozanky is the creator of the annual US-Russia Forum, and founder of American University in Moscow.
  112. Lozansky fled here in 1986, and Bob Dole and Jack Kemp helped him undermine the Soviet Union in order to get his wife over to the United States.
  113. Once the Soviet Union fell, Lozanky created the American University in Moscow, with offices right next door to Paul Weyrich’s heritage foundation new Moscow office.
  114. Lozansky started the Sakharov Institute in Russia in order to fight for the activists freedom, while Richard Burt actively worked on the U.S side for Sakharov’s freedom.  Both are now actively working to create a Trump-Putin alliance.
  115. Paul Weyrich, founder of the Council for National Policy and the Free Congress Foundation helped organize the World Russia forum after the downfall of the Soviet Union. In 2003, a who’s who of Republican Congressman favorable to Russia including Weldon, Delay, and Rohrabacker were in attendence.
  116. Arkady Musharev, president of the Krieble Institute (Offshoot of the Free Congress Foundation) gave an interview in which he talked about the Council for National Policy and the ties between the modern Republican Party and the Russian Putin allies in the world.
  117. Current Health and Human Service Secretary Tom Price went to a Lozansky forum in 2011, at which Ambassador Kislyak also attended.  Other attendees that year included Musharev, Rohrabacker,  and Ed Verona.
  118. Ed Verona is the former VP of Exxon in Russia (Tillersons right hand man).  He even wrote an article in the Center for the National Interests publication about how Tillerson was a good choice for secretary of State. He’s also Richard Burt’s boss at Mcclarty associates which also employs a former Soviet Spy, and formally sat on the US-Russia business council with CNI members Richard Burt and Drew Guff
  119. Jim Jatras is a friend of Ed Lozansky. He is on the Board of Directors of the American University of Moscow, which was started by Lozansky.  Also on the board of directors is Arkady Musharev,  Darren Spinck, and Anthony Salvia.  While I have already talked about Musharev, it should be noted that Spinck, Salvia, and Jatras appear everywhere together. They are the American Council of Kosovo togethether, as well as being the principles  of Global Strategic Communications Group, and they all have been seen across the Pro-Putin world with Lozansky.
  120. Trump’s former lawyer Marc E. Kasowitz has signed on to defend a Russian Bank with ties to Putin.
  121. Trump Transition member and head of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes has his entire net worth sunk into part ownership of a winery in California, which happens to have Russian ties.

  123. Rudy Giuliani knows Sergey Lavrov and could be the most Direct path to Putin.
  124. Nigel Farage is close with Russia and possibly looked the other way while they helped fund Brexit. He is also an unofficial advisor to Donald Trump.
  125. Judi Shelton, known Russia expert,1989 Author of The Coming Soviet Crash , and attendee at one of Lozansky’s Russia Forums is an advisor to 45.
  126.  Why did Kushner meet with the head of a Russian bank who used to be a KGB agent?
  127. It appears that the Council for National Policy is not United in the Russia scandal. Cliff Kincaid joined the Council for National Policy in 1998. He’s a far-right Christian and founded a far right think tank, but he also wrote a book called Back from The Dead: The Return of the Evil Empire. In it, he makes a lot of radical guesses like suggesting Obama might be a Soviet Agent,  but his overall point about the Russians still fighting the Cold War remains true.
  128. He co-wrote this book with former KGB Agent Konstantin Preobrazhensky, who wrote a similar book about Americans of Russian Descent that I would love to read but costs $60 for for a 200 page paperback for some reason.  He goes on to point out that Margarita Simonyan (Russia TV Editor in Chief) grew up in an FSB apartment and is likely just a figurehead to appease Western Media. Simonyan was seated next to Michael Flynn at the event in Moscow in 2015.
  129. He also points out that Igor Panarin was a Colonel in the KGB, despite being called an Academic in Western Circles.  Panarin was a regular at the Russia House events.
  130. Arthur Finklestein is #130 on the paths to Putin. It’s amazing it took this long for Finklestein to be known to me. This is a guy who helped former Council for National Policy president and Eugenics fan Tom Ellis (and Jesse Helms) win elections. He then went to help Ed Lozansky allies Dole/Kemp win elections and then focused on other lesser known CNP members. He is a Trump associate who knew Roy Cohn, Roger Stone, and Paul Manafort and now he’s advising dictators from former soviet states. His connection with Netanyahu brought him closer to the Kuchners, his work for Victor Orban brought him Gorka, and his Ukrainian/Kosovo work probably brought him closer to Page, Manafort and the three amigos (Jatras, Spinck, Salvia)
  131. Louise Mensch is Reporting that Carter Page, Manafort and others are probably on tape discussing trump Russia with kislyak.
  132. In 2010, Ed Lozansky and Jim Jatras wrote a letter to senator Jon Kyl. In it they discussed how 20 years ago, they (along with Paul Weyrich) organized trips for Kyl and then VP Dan Quayle to build better relationships with Russia.
  133. In the 1990s, Dennis Hastert organized a Republican study committee on bettering our relationship with Russia. He then went on to go to Lozansky forums (as did Weldon and Gilman from this list)
  134. Ben Gilman worked for Jeanne Kirkpatrick at the UN When she was forming what would later become freedomworks. They’re both CNP members.
  135. Chris Cox left congress to practice law, and opened an office in Singapore just prior to the Rosneft deal which involved Singapore.
  136. Strategic-culture.org lists Jim Jatras as an author. In 2011, it listed interaffairs.ru, a Russian government journal as a partner in its website. The journal interaffairs publishes is published by a company called East View information services. Interaffairs and eastview share the same Minnesota address. East view also owns Trektools.com which shares an IP address with Michael Caputos business in Florida. east view is primarily staffed by Russian immigrants with ties to the government.
  137. Richard Burr indirectly has a small financial investment in Russia, but he also received 8 million dollars from a Mitch McConnell SuperPAC that received over a million dollars from Leonard Blavatnik and his company access industries
  138. Blavatnik has also donated 1 million dollars to Scott Walker. 
  139. Blavatnik is important because he is a Russian oligarch. In #83, I talked about how Alfa Bank and Renova Group united to buy TNK-BP. The part of the piece I was missing is that Alfa, Renova, and Access industries formed the AAR group which they used to create TNK-BP before selling to Rosneft.
  140. Paul Weyrich, together with Morton Blackwell and Peter Gemma formed the International Policy Forum, which was meant to serve as an International Council for National Policy (CNP). In 1991, The IPF cohosted a forum with the CNP in St. Petersburg Russia, which matters because of the ties between the CNP – Trump – and the far right in Russia.
