George Santos Had Shady Business Relationship With Russian Money Man

...Rep. George Santos (R-NY) long claimed a former Donald Trump associate"and cash handler for a notorious Russian oligarch"was just a businessman who donated to his campaign. But, as with most things involving Santos, things were not what they seemed.

Santos' relationship with Andrew Intrater, a businessman who donated thousands of dollars to Santos' campaign committee and those linked to him, now appears to have extended to his work with Harbor City Capital, an investment firm federal investigators labeled a Ponzi scheme. Far from jut a guy who donated to Santos' campaign, Intrater also had a substantial business relationship with Santos, according to a court filing obtained by The Washington Post, putting hundreds of thousands of dollars into Harbor City Capital.

Santos even boasted about their relationship in a 2020 meeting to discuss funding for a residential building in New York. At the time, Intrater ran the investment firm Columbus Nova, whose main client was Intrater's cousin: sanctioned Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg, as The Daily Beast first reported.

"You might know who they are," Santos said in a company meeting, according to audio obtained by The Washington Post. "They've made the news on several occasions. They were heavily involved with the Russia probe. Unjustified."

There is not yet a direct financial or personal link between Santos and Vekselberg, who was sanctioned in 2018 for his ties to Vladimir Putin. Last year, the U.S. ordered the seizure of Vekselberg's $90 million yacht in the wake of the war in Ukraine. But the closeness between Vekselberg and his cousin indicates Santos seemed to deem dealing with scrutinized figures as permissible....

George Santos: I've Lived an "Honest Life," and Also Don't Ask Me Where My Money Came From (January 2023)

...Among George Santos's many lies and embellishments and cover-ups is how, exactly, he came into so much money so quickly.

Just a few years ago, Santos claimed no major assets and a $55,000 salary. Two years later, his net worth skyrocketed and he apparently boasted a nearly seven-figure salary and millions in dividends. He even loaned some $700,000 to his campaign. Santos has thus far refused to answer where this inordinate amount of money actually came from, especially so quickly. And on Thursday, while speaking on friendly territory, he still avoided the question.

On Steve Bannon's War Room program, guest host and Santos's colleague Representative Matt Gaetz asked Santos about the $700,000.

"I'll tell you where it didn't come from. It didn't come from China, Ukraine, or Burisma," Santos quipped with a grin. "How about that?"...

Gee, yeah, how about that.

What country did Rep Santos leave out?

Celebrity worshipers. Look how fast he went from being a complete nobody to being one of the most talked about people in Congress.
