Trump and russian mafia book
House of Trump, House of Putin by Craig Unger – review | Books | The GuardianPutin 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.

Much of the book alternates between the backstories of Trump and Vladimir Putin , like narrative strands in a novel destined to meet in the denouement. As far as can be made out from the book, Unger did not travel to Russia himself, nor did he carry out more than a handful of his own interviews. As a former Moscow correspondent, most of the information, sources and colourful nuggets made familiar reading. There were also a few minor but grating errors when it came to Moscow geography and chronology. The meeting of the two narrative strands, when it came after many drumrolls, was largely unsatisfying. To be fair to Unger, when the evidence trail goes cold he tends to admit it rather than make giant speculative leaps. Expecting any author to come up with the definitive story on Trump and Russia at this stage is therefore unrealistic.
