Felix Sater

“Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putin’s team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”

— A boast from convicted felon Felix Sater, a childhood friend of Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and a Russian immigrant who claims to be close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. This quote comes from a November 3rd, 2015 email and was published in The New York Times last August.
