Judge confirms Trump associate gave feds Osama bin Laden’s number
#1




A federal judge has confirmed for the first time that Felix Sater, a former Donald Trump business associate who drove Trump Tower Moscow negotiations during the 2016 election, helped the U.S. government track down Osama bin Laden.
During a hearing on Thursday in the Eastern District of New York — held as part of a lawsuit brought by First Look Media to unseal records related to Sater’s longtime cooperation with the government on various national security issues — Judge I. Leo Glasser said the media group already knew all of the “very interesting and dangerous things” Sater had done through his decade as an FBI informant.
“He cooperated,” Glasser said. “And you know what he did over the 10, 11 years, because you told me that you know. He provided the telephone number of Osama bin Laden. He has done an awful lot of very interesting and dangerous things.”
The detail is just another bizarre side plot that has emerged over the two-plus years that federal investigators, lawmakers and journalists have tried to uncover every detail about possible interactions between the Trump campaign and Russian intermediaries during the 2016 election. The probes have put spotlights on a cast of figures in Trump’s extended orbit, many of whom possess unusual backgrounds.
Sater was pulled into the public eye because of his role in trying to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. The deliberations have been of interest to investigators for two reasons. One, they occurred as the Kremlin was orchestrating an extensive campaign to interfere in the U.S. presidential election. And two, Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen later lied to Congress about how deep into campaign season the negotiations lasted.

As their turned Focus on Sater, he promoted the job that he did asserting it exhibited his patriotism.
He explained in written Opinions to lawmakers that he”provided critical intelligence information” about Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida”before and following the 9/11 strikes” He gave information — that the book confirmed — stating that he got five of their satellite phone numbers for bin Laden prior to the strikes to BuzzFeed.
On Thursday, the bin Laden anecdote was affirmed by the judge.
However, Glasser seemed hesitant about showing more about the work of Sater.

The Judge suggested that unsealing Sater’s 5k1 correspondence — that will be a memo outlining the degree of a defendant’s cooperation, and also to what extent that needs to be taken into consideration for Legislation — lacked disincentivizing other private informants from coming forward and cooperating with the authorities later on.
The judge asked what the people had to understand”that could impact these House of Representatives hearings and Mr. Trump?”
Sater Was likely to testify before the House Intelligence Committee but his hearing was postponed after Attorney General Bill Barr published an overview of the first findings of counsel Robert Mueller .

The informant work of sater stems from a 1998 case in which he pleaded guilty to engaging in a $40 million stock fraud strategy orchestrated from the mafia. Sater consented to secretly gather data for the authorities, which explained his collaboration as”extraordinary” in national security cases which haven’t been appointed or supported in court before Thursday.

However, Even though the disclosure of Thursday, the majority of the particulars of the alliance with the authorities of Sater still stay secret.
Glasser Noted the fascination in Sater’s situation has”nothing to do with the prosecution heading back to 1998. Not something.”
Sater When mails that he wrote to Cohen, landed in the center of the Russia evaluation were printed by the New York Times at 2017.
“I’ll get Putin on this app and we’ll get Donald chosen,” Sater composed in a November 2015 email to Cohen, pitching him onto a huge real-estate bargain in Moscow and suggesting it may assist Trump win the election. “Our boy could become president of the USA and also we could engineer it…I shall find all of Putin’s staff to purchase on this, I’ll handle this procedure.”

Sater And Cohen have known each other for decades, moving back into the partnership of Sater on the building of Trump SoHo in Manhattan with the Trump Organization. Bayrock, the real-estate development firm that Sater co-founded, was accused in a lawsuit of being”greatly and covertly mob-owned and functioned,” and participating in”related offenses,” including money laundering and racketeering. This past year sater has denied the allegations and settled the suit in principle.
Sater Helped Trump extent bargains in the early 2000s. He revealed Ivanka Trump and her brother Donald Trump Jr. about Moscow in 2006 if their dad was scouting property .
Mueller’s team Interviewed Sater to Cohen about his mails. Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann — exactly the prosecutor who supervised the 1998 inventory fraud case was a part of this interview.

Sater, for his part, Viewpoints that the judge awareness of proof he’s not working to advance his arrival country’s interests and his aid from the bin Laden situation as evidence of his devotion to the United States, ” the former Soviet Union.
“I’m honored and proud to have had the opportunity to help my nation fight this terrorist and killer of Americans,” he informed POLITICO.

Because that article reads as if providing a sat number someone traced and tracked to help catch a pos terrorist is a crime now.

I'm really getting tired of leftist media spinning everything into hateful garbage.
