A Russian-American businessman who donated a substantial sum to Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential election effort boasted to a senior figure in Moscow that he was “actively involved” in the Republican candidate’s campaign. 🚨…
Simon Kukes told Vyacheslav Pavlovsky, a career Kremlin official, he was helping Trump with “strategy development” and shared photos of his 29-year-old Russian girlfriend posing with the future president.
Kukes’s donations began two weeks after the meeting at Trump Tower in June 2016, when Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner discussed “dirt” on Hillary Clinton with a Russian lawyer. In total Kukes gave $273,000 to the Trump Victory Committee.

Bob Woodward’s new book reveals a ‘nervous breakdown’ of Trump’s presidency…
John Dowd was convinced that Trump would commit perjury if he talked to Mueller. He staged a practice session to try to make his point. Dowd peppered Trump with questions about the Russia probe, provoking stumbles, contradictions and lies until Trump eventually lost his cool.
A central theme of the book is the stealthy machinations used by those in Trump’s inner sanctum to try to control his impulses and prevent disasters, both for the president personally and for the nation he was elected to lead.

Prosecutors granted immunity to David Pecker, chairman of American Media Inc., and A.M.I.’s chief content officer, Dylan Howard, so they would describe Trump’s involvement in Cohen’s payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal during the 2016 campaign
One source says Cohen wants to tell Mueller that Trump discussed the release of Podesta’s e-mails during the weekend when the Access Hollywood tape dominated the news cycle. (WikiLeaks started posting Podesta’s stolen emails half an hour after the Post published the tape)

Federal authorities investigating whether Trump’s former personal lawyer and fixer, Michael D. Cohen, committed bank and tax fraud have zeroed in on well over $20 million in loans obtained by taxi businesses that he and his family own. 🚨
Investigators are also examining whether Cohen violated laws by helping to arrange financial deals to secure the silence of women who said they had affairs with Mr. Trump. The inquiry has entered the final stage and prosecutors are considering filing charges by the end of August.
The tax fraud aspect of the investigation has been focused in part on whether Cohen properly reported the income from his taxi medallions, which was sometimes in cash.
