Trump has ties, at least indirectly, to Mogilevich via Trump Tower Toronto (Shnaider employer and father-in-law, Birshtein) and the alleged mafia protector (Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov) of the gambling ring run, at least in part, out of Trump Tower 5th Ave., and via the Genovese Crime Family (Trump lawyer and friend Roy Cohn represented for them). All of whom are alleged by the FBI as working with Mogilevich, as shown in the document pages (about 1/2 main text) below. Further details of the ties are found below the screen shots. Interesting the mention of vodka, since Trump has or had a vodka brand. Also, trafficking in nuclear materials; the mention of KGB; the mention of fraudulent Israeli passports. Recall that his first wife, mother to Ivanka, is supposed to be from the Czech Republic. Chernobyl mentioned on p. 13. It does not say if it was carried out.
“Cohn had a 30-year career as an attorney in New York City. His clients included Donald Trump, Mafia figures Tony Salerno, Carmine Galante, and John Gotti, Studio 54 owners Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager“. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roy_Cohn
“Anthony “Fat Tony” Salerno (August 15, 1911 – July 27, 1992) was a New York mobster who served as underboss and front boss of the Genovese crime familyfrom 1981 until his conviction in 1986… He controlled S&A, a concrete contracting company—one of the two major concrete suppliers in Manhattan. Salerno served as consigliere, underboss, and acting boss of the Genovese family“. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Salerno
Washington Post reports re Trump advisor Roger Stone: “Mr. Stone, I want you to meet Tony Salerno,” Cohn said. There Stone was, standing before the future boss of the Genovese crime family.” “The man who showed Donald Trump how to exploit power and instill fear Lawyer and adviser Roy M. Cohn was a master of the attack and counterattack.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/investigations/former-mccarthy-aide-showed-trump-how-to-exploit-power-and-draw-attention/2016/06/16/e9f44f20-2bf3-11e6-9b37-42985f6a265c_story.html
HALF ITALIAN AND HALF HUNGARIAN ROGER STONE COULD THEORETICALLY BE A LINK BETWEEN ITALIAN ORGANIZED CRIME AND MOGILEVICH. Stone is Catholic and denies being Jewish, though Stone clearly isn’t a Hungarian name and it is most likely ethnic German or ethnic Jewish Stein from the Buda side of Budapest. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buda The Jewish newspaper Forward .com wrote an article that he was Jewish and retracted it, apparently because he is baptized Catholic.
Trump Tower Inhabitant(s) Gambling Ring
“The Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization operated under the protection of Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, who is known as a “Vor,” a term translated as “Thief-in-Law,” that refers to a member of a select group of high-level criminals from the former Soviet Union. Tokhtakhounov used his status as a Vor to resolve disputes with clients of the high-stakes illegal gambling operation with implicit and sometimes explicit threats of violence and economic harm…” (US DOJ, April 30, 2014). Tokhtakhounov is still at large in Moscow. https://miningawareness.wordpress.com/2017/03/11/trump-tower-tenant-living-below-trump-sent-to-jail-for-racketeering-conspiracy-with-russian-american-organized-crime/
Trump Tower Toronto
According to the Office of Congressman Swalwell: “Alex Shnaider: Born in Russia, Shnaider co-financed a real estate project with Trump. Shnaider’s father-in-law, Boris J. Birshtein, was a close business associate of Sergei Mikhaylov, the head of one of the largest branches of the Russian mob.” https://swalwell.house.gov/issues/russia-trump-his-administration-s-ties.
The reference given is James S. Henry, “The Curious World of Donald Trump’s Private Russian Connections”, which has a section called “The Case of the Trump Toronto Tower and Hotel—Alex Shnaider”
According to “The Globe and Mail”, May 27th 2005, Shnaider took the majority stake in Trump Tower hotel and condo Toronto. Shnaider started working for the man who became his father-in-law, Boris Birshtein, in 1991. They had “met through family connections“. “Birshtein introduced him to the world of steel trading, which would become the foundation of his fortune.” They say that there have been no allegations of wrong-doing by Schnaider. See “The Invisible Man” by Michale Posner, December 5, 2016 in the Globe and Mail. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Shnaider
According to the above FBI document, Birshtein attended a Russian organized crime meeting in Israel in October 1995.
Possible Hungarian PM Orban link
In a manner similar to Jeff Sessions, Orban flipped from harsh critic of Putin’s Russia to being his foremost ally in Europe: “… in 2007, Orbán harshly lambasted the Government for being “blind” to the “growing influence” Russia wields via its vast energy giants,… In 2008, he continued to criticize the Kremlin,…Suddenly in 2009, everything changed. Orban unexpectedly showed up at the “United Russia” convention in Saint Petersburg, where he met Putin. He immediately ceased criticizing Russia, and a year later, when Orbán became the Hungarian Prime Minister, he became one of the key Putin apologists in Europe. Whatever happened to Orbán in such a short period of time? Could it be the arrest of criminal kingpin Semion Mogilevich in Moscow, that influenced the Hungarian leader? …. one of the reasons for his loyalty might be a video with compromising info on Orbán, filmed back in the mid 1990s by crime kingpin Semion Mogilevich…” Read the article here: http://www.4freerussia.org/a-suitcase-full-of-cash-from-the-solntsevo-mafia-does-putin-have-a-compromat-on-the-hungarian-leader/
“The Russian mafia in Israel began with the mass immigration of Russian Jews to Israel in 1989. The Russian mafia saw Israel as an ideal place to launder money, as Israel’s banking system was designed to encourage aliyah, the immigration of Jews, and the accompanying capital. Following the trend of global financial deregulation, Israel had also implemented legislation aimed at easing the movement of capital. Combined with the lack of anti-money laundering legislation, “Russian” organised crime found it an easy place to transfer ill-gotten gains. In 2005, police estimated that Russian organised crime had laundered between $5 and 10 billion in the fifteen years since the end of the Soviet Union. Non-Jewish criminals such as Sergei Mikhailov sought to get Israeli passports, using fake Jewish documentation.
Russian and Ukrainian Jewish criminals have also been able to set up networks in the United States, following the large migration of Russian Jews to New York City and Miami, but also in European cities such as Berlin and Antwerp. Many of these Russian gangsters have Israeli passports as well. Infamous Russian-Jewish mobsters include Marat Balagula, Evsei Agronand their respective criminal gangs in the United States. Soviet-Jewish criminal groups in the United States are involved in racketeering, prostitution, drug trafficking, extortion, and gasoline fraud as well as murder.“. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_mafia#Russian_Mafia
Up until 1999, extradition of Jewish nationals from Israel wasn’t allowed. Because of abuses, if a non-resident Israeli commits a crime abroad they can be extradicted, but they can be sentenced and punished in Israel.

“Putin was a KGB foreign intelligence officer for 16 years, rising to the rank of lieutenant colonel before retiring in 1991 to enter politics in Saint Petersburg. He moved to Moscow in 1996 and joined President Boris Yeltsin’s administration, rising quickly through the ranks and becoming Acting President on 31 December 1999, when Yeltsin resigned.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Putin
