Ukrainian members with friendship dating site
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, facing calls from Democrats to resign, has agreed to recuse himself from investigations into the Trump campaign’s relationship with Russia after news emerged that he, too, had spoken privately with the ambassador.Not on this list is Ivanka Trump, the president’s favorite child and his proxy on working women’s issues.Trump’s original campaign manager Cory Lewandowski was fired after he allegedly tried to shop negative stories about Jared to media outlets.Ivanka reportedly threatened her father she would leave the campaign if Lewandowski stayed, and she and Jared pushed for Manafort to be brought in to supposedly bring more professionalism to the campaign. Four days after the August 14 Times report ran, Manafort resigned.Manafort, by the way, had at one point worked as a senior adviser for pro-Russia Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.He also owed his powerful position in the Trump campaign to Ivanka and Jared, according to Vanity Fair.It looks like the controversy over President Donald Trump’s associates having questionable contacts with Russian officials isn’t going away anytime soon.And this past week, someone else very close to Trump was caught up in it.
That .7 million came from a pro-Russian political party in Ukraine.
The oligarch’s wife Ivanka is good friends with Dasha Zhukova, the art-collector wife of oligarch Roman Abramovich, one of the richest men in Russia.
Abramovich isn’t just the owner of the Chelsea soccer club; he’s reportedly a member of Putin’s inner circle.

It should be noted that Zhukova may not share her friend’s political leanings — having reportedly donated ,700 to the campaign of former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in 2015.
Ivanka and Jared wanted controversial Paul Manafort to be in charge During one August week, Trump and his close associates found themselves in the hot seat for their apparent friendliness to Russia and to Russian interests.
