Quotes from a Salon interview with Craig Unger, author of “House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia.”

“…Donald Trump has for decades laundered billions of dollars for Russian organized crime figures and other oligarchs.  This fits a larger pattern in which Trump and his inner circle have shown a great comfort with financial crimes and other forms of unethical or illegal behavior to personally enrich themselves at the expense of the American people.”

Unger:

“Donald Trump has had contacts with the Russian mafia for 35 years.  His properties have laundered money for them.  The Russian mafia are connected to Russian intelligence.  They’re living and have been working in Trump’s building.  Trump has even partnered with them.  There are so many ways in which he’s compromised…The Republicans are also implicated….the Russians didn’t just go after Donald Trump: They went after the entire Republican Party.  There is Russian money going into the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, the N.R.A., and then to Republicans officials and candidates directly.”
