From my closed thread on this topic:

I'm not going to pretend to be an authority on Jewish groups but Chabad here refers to Chabad-Lubavitch, which is an orthodox Jewish movement started in a village in Russia. There are known connections between some of Trump's Jewish associates (and later family) and Berel Lazar (Rabbi Shlomo Dovber Pinchas Lazar) aka "Putin's Rabbi," Chabad and specifically Chabad of Port Washington.

For more information, there's a Politico piece from last April:

The Happy-Go-Lucky Jewish Group That Connects Trump and Putin


Chabad of Port Washington, a Jewish community center on Long Island’s Manhasset Bay, sits in a squat brick edifice across from a Shell gas station and a strip mall. The center is an unexceptional building on an unexceptional street, save for one thing: Some of the shortest routes between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin run straight through it.

Starting in 1999, Putin enlisted two of his closest confidants, the oligarchs Lev Leviev and Roman Abramovich, who would go on to become Chabad’s biggest patrons worldwide, to create the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia under the leadership of Chabad rabbi Berel Lazar, who would come to be known as “Putin’s rabbi.”

A few years later, Trump would seek out Russian projects and capital by joining forces with a partnership called Bayrock-Sapir, led by Soviet emigres Tevfik Arif, Felix Sater and Tamir Sapir—who maintain close ties to Chabad. The company’s ventures would lead to multiple lawsuits alleging fraud and a criminal investigation of a condo project in Manhattan.

Meanwhile, the links between Trump and Chabad kept piling up. In 2007, Trump hosted the wedding of Sapir’s daughter and Leviev’s right-hand man at Mar-a-Lago, his Palm Beach resort. A few months after the ceremony, Leviev met Trump to discuss potential deals in Moscow and then hosted a bris for the new couple’s first son at the holiest site in Chabad Judaism. Trump attended the bris along with Kushner, who would go on to buy a $300 million building from Leviev and marry Ivanka Trump, who would form a close relationship with Abramovich’s wife, Dasha Zhukova. Zhukova would host the power couple in Russia in 2014 and reportedly attend Trump’s inauguration as their guest.

Funny how in the last couple of days we're being deluged with these articles, right as it's being made public how the CIA, FBI, and DOJ were actively conspiring to fabricate grounds to investigate the Trump campaign.


Funny how after weeks of one development after another — with concrete proof — of corruption involving Cohen, Elliott Broidy, Erik Prince and pedophile George Nader, who were all enriching themselves by peddling influence in the Trump admin, there's a massive effort to unleash a narrative about "spying" on the Trump campaign.

I don't know who will be more disappointed: The unduly hopeful people on the Left who think Trump is going to be shown to have conspired with Putin or the irrationally optimistic people on the Right who believe that a conspiracy to spy on Trump's campaign for political advantage is about to be revealed.

Willful ignorance and wishful thinking are no substitutes for facts and objective, critical analysis.

It's Hillary. She will never get over the rejection from America,

It gets worse!
from your link :


Despite its small size, Chabad has grown to become the most sprawling Jewish institution in the world, with a presence in over 1,000 far-flung cities, including locales like Kathmandu and Hanoi with few full-time Jewish residents.

The movement is known for these outposts, called Chabad houses, which function as community centers and are open to all Jews. “Take any forsaken city in the world, you have a McDonald’s and a Chabad house,” explained Ronn Torossian, a Jewish public relations executive in New York.

... snip ...

According to Schmuley Boteach, a prominent rabbi in New Jersey and a longtime friend of Democratic Sen. Cory Booker, Chabad offers Jews a third way of relating to their religious identity.

“You have three choices as a Jew,” he explained. “You can assimilate and not be very affiliated. You can be religious and Orthodox, or there’s sort of a third possibility that Chabad offers for people who don’t want to go the full Orthodox route but do want to stay on the traditional spectrum.”

... snip ...

As the closest thing the Jewish world has to evangelism


No waaay,
Trump is - secretly - Jewish !?!
but in a kinda secty kinda way

That's pretty mind blowing
seriously

I suspect the fact that Mueller passed off the Cohen case to other people is telling. Probably there isn't any way to tie Trump into Cohen's amateur influence peddling, so Mueller lost interest.

For that matter, what are the laws surrounding what Cohen has done? He does not have any kind of government position, and he did not work on the campaign, so I would think bribery and campaign finance laws wouldn't apply. Probably failure to register as a foreign agent, but aside from that?

You might have missed this part :


Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, as Trump looked for business and investors in the former Soviet Union during the first years of this century, he struck up an enduring relationship with a firm called Bayrock-Sapir.

Bayrock was co-led by Felix Sater, a convicted mob associate.

Sater and another Bayrock employee, Daniel Ridloff, who like Sater later went on to work directly for the Trump Organization, belong to the Port Washington Chabad house.

Sater told POLITICO Magazine that in addition to serving on the board of the Port Washington Chabad house, he sits on the boards of numerous Chabad entities in the U.S. and abroad, though none in Russia.


A nice allignment of interests there ^^

Cohen is probably cooked, IF this real and not some dreamt up lieberal wet dream. Coming from the UK, I tend to think wet dream lol. Until there is evidence via independent audit and forensic analysis, I would view this as simple speculation at best, slander or possibly libel at worst. One can't just blow off their pie hole without consequence.

Putin has cultivated Chabad in Russia, building a special library to collect Jewish books and documents from all over the Russian Empire... so, why not?

Yeah funny. Seems like a day after everyone wants to start providing evidence and intel for criminal charges against Obama, Clinton and their criminal cartel, you go into batsh.... hyper drive on trump. What's the deal here? Settle down, go fishing and relax, or something. What's going to happen next, none of us have any control over and if you can't control it, don't worry about it. None of it's real anyway. Abide......

Uh oh!


President Obama has declared Friday "Education and Sharing Day" in tribute to the late Lubavitcher rebbe, Menachem Mendel Schneerson, whose birthday is March 22.

“This day recalls the memory of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who taught generations of young men and women the importance of education and good character,” Obama wrote in a Presidential Proclamation posted on the White House website on Thursday...

“I call upon all Americans to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities,” read the proclamation, which stressed the importance of education.

Bill Clinton Lauds Chabad School


More than 1,000 people turned out Thursday night to hear former President Bill Clinton at a fundraiser for the Philip Berley Preschool of the Arts, a school run by the Chabad Center for Jewish Discovery, 


The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!

And let's not forget the dirty Jews...

The BBC have no reason to lie about Trump or attack him, to call the BBC "Lieberal" shows quite how far off you are.

Lastly the money payment $400,000 and its trail comes from the disclosure of payments last week (the one with AT&T etc).

He received that money, from Ukraine, that's beyond doubt at this point, the rest of the payments were confirmed too, heads rolled.

Cohen is without a doubt up Sh*t creek.

I remember Trump saying it was an abuse of the investigation to go after Cohen, not looking that way now.
