Russian-born Felix Sater “served a year in prison for stabbing a man in the face with a margarita glass during a bar fight,” reports Richard Behar, “pleaded guilty to racketeering as part of a mafia-driven “pump-and-dump” stock fraud and then escaped jail time by becoming a highly valued government informant.”
Behar has also claimed to be a senior Trump advisor and said under oath that he represented Donald Trump in Russia office. Trump meanwhile has said, under oath, that he barely knew Sater.
“Forbes has connected three billionaire oligarchs from Kazakhstan to potential deals involving Trump and Sater.”
But an investigation by Forbes has uncovered e-mails and sworn statements confirming that Sater was “closer to Trump, his organization and his children than previously revealed,” says Behar.
