Unraveling the Origins of the Trump-Russia Investigation
President Trump and his allies nearly succeeded in consigning the Mueller report to oblivion. And Robert Mueller himself invited a certain measure of confusion by telling his story in dense, legalistic prose. Barely six months after he delivered the report, it had already faded into the mists of Trumpiana: post-Sean Spicer, pre-whistle-blower. The request was so plainly an abuse of Presidential power—Zelensky was awaiting delivery of military aid already approved by Congress—that Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, launched an investigation focussed on impeachment , to be led by Adam Schiff, the chair of the Intelligence Committee.

Putin is, of course, the Russian president for whom President Donald Trump has a bizarre fixation. Sater is the developer whose Bayrock Group was part of several attempts by Trump to develop property in Moscow. Mogilevich is the money launderer known as the "Brainy Don" of the Russian Mafia, for whom Sater ran errands. All three Russians seem to float comfortably in a pool covered with the toxic algae of corruption, violence and murder. The list of Russians and Ukrainians jailed, murdered or dead through mysterious circumstances at the alleged direction of Putin is long indeed. Many of them, Unger writes, have funneled money into Trump's properties, especially New York's Trump Tower, through veiled transactions with laundered money. Often, that tour leads to the doors of the White House and Trump Tower, and the implication is clear to even the most obtuse reader: Trump is in Putin's pocket and those of the financiers who have grown immensely rich through their associations with the country's putative dictator.
