Your Daily Santos

“And so I said to Schrödenger, ‘what cat?!‘”

I guess Santos is the new Gohmert, you know, a daily embarrassment for the Republicans, except as far as I know, Gohmert was never a likely Russian asset while Santos might be:

New details link George Santos to cousin of sanctioned Russian oligarch

George Santos, the freshman Republican congressman from New York who lied about his biography, has deeper ties than previously known to a businessman who cultivated close links with a onetime Trump confidant and who is the cousin of a sanctioned Russian oligarch, according to video footage and court documents.

Andrew Intrater and his wife each gave the maximum $5,800 to Santos’ main campaign committee and tens of thousands more since 2020 to committees linked to him, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission. Intrater’s cousin is Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg, who has been sanctioned by the U.S. government for his role in the Russian energy industry.

The relationship between Santos and Intrater goes beyond campaign contributions, according to a statement made privately by Santos in 2020 and a court filing the following year in a lawsuit brought by the Securities and Exchange Commission against a Florida-based investment firm, Harbor City Capital, where Santos worked for more than a year.

If the name Viktor Vekselberg strikes a bell for you, it might be because he’s one of the many Russians who played a role in the many assorted Russian scandals and (probable) money-laundering operations that may have involved former Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchnin,(Worst. Bond. Villain. Ever.), Paul ‘Petting Zoo’ Manafort, and the big tuna hisself, Lord Damp Nut.

  1. I remember reading about the links to Intrader last year when the whole “Santos” mishegas started to get aired out in public…I wonder about the links between the Russkies and the mysterious GOP power broker Nancy Marks https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2023/01/another-george-santos-money-mystery-he-struck-a-curious-business-deal-with-a-veteran-gop-operative-nancy-marks/
