It appeared that it was also a real estate deal Donald Trump Jr. gave Congress a wrong year for, but there’s since been some pushback on NPR’s reporting.
It notes that Trump Jr. told a Senate committee that a deal in Moscow died of "deal fatigue" by 2014.
Trump Jr. was then pressed as to whether the counter-party was “somebody connected to [former mobster and Trump family business associate] Felix Sater.”
He may also be closely examining Trump Jr.’s statements about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Russian lawyer.
The Trump Tower meeting was facilitated by Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov and his pop star son Emin.
Trump Jr. was asked “if they [the Agalarovs] were also exploring building a Trump Tower in Moscow.”.
