In Jan 2017, Russia funnels money to Trump through inaugural committee. Another guilty plea for Mueller in the Trump-Russian espionage case. On Aug 31, 2018, Republican lobbyist Samuel Patten pleaded guilty to being an unregistered foreign lobbyist, lying to the Senate, and funneling $50,000 in Russian money to Trump through the Presidential Inaugural Committee. Patten used an American straw purchaser to hide the Ukrainian’s money to the inaugural committee through a Cypriot bank account. Patten is now cooperating with Mueller and has agreed to testify. He signed a very robust cooperation agreement.
