This post has been updated that Felix Sater’s testimony is now scheduled for March 27 and not March 14 as originally written.
Felix Sater will be testifying before the House Intelligence Committee on March 27, 2019.
This comes as Michael Cohen testified publicly before the House Oversight Committee and in closed-door sessions as well.
Sater is tied into Michael Cohen and President Trump with the Moscow Trump Tower project. In addition, Sater has been tied into numerous real estate deals with Trump, but a video deposition of Trump resurfaced this week in the news where Trump said “if he were sitting in the room right now, I really wouldn’t know what he looked like.”
Sater not only carried business cards calling himself “senior adviser” to Trump, he also has an office on the same floor as Trump. Their relationship goes back years and Sater apparently has his office rent-free in Trump Tower. Does that sound like someone Trump wouldn’t know what he looks like?
Because it was a deposition, Trump was under oath and thus, could face perjury charges as the lawsuit was only two years ago.
President Trump Demanded Top Security Clearance for Jared Kushner
Latest reporting is that President Trump ordered that Jared Kushner receive top-secret security clearance. This, after then-Chief of Staff John Kelly and then-White House counsel Don McGahn objected.
Kelly and McGahn even wrote internal memos on the issue which is obviously not the norm, but as a way to protect themselves in the future. Of course, President Trump has said from the beginning that he was not involved in Kushner getting clearance.
As I wrote previously, Chairman of the Oversight Committee Elijah Cummings, had already started his investigation into the White House and security clearances.
“To date, the White House has not produced a single document or scheduled a single interview,” Cummings said in a statement. “The Committee expects full compliance with its requests as soon as possible, or it may become necessary to consider alternative means to compel compliance.”
