To keep the hush money paid to Stormy Daniels on the down-low, Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen created an LLC called Essential Consultants. However, the accounts tied to the company have seen a little more action than just a one time payment to the porn star.
One of the more curious transactions is a $500,000 payment for unknown services by Columbus Nova. The investment company has ties to Russia (which they are busy attempting to scrub from their mentions) and also has ties to white nationalism. That is like the perfect trifecta: Trump, Russia, White Supremacists.
Apparently, in 2016 and 2017, Columbus Nove bought a bunch of domains like Alt-Right.co, Alt-Right.com, and Altrights.co. All of the sites remained unused at this time, and it isn’t clear why the investment company purchased the domains.
It does make for some interesting speculation, doesn’t it? What could be going on here...an investment company with ties to Russia buys a bunch of Nazi related domains and drops a ton of money into an account linked to Trump...
