The Trump Organization in the Caucasus

Updated: May 24


Audio / I talk to Adam Davidson of The New Yorker about the Trump Organization's business deals in the post-Soviet region.





This is the third episode in a three-part series that examines real estate and offshore financial activities connected with the post-Soviet region. In part one of the series, I speak with Harriman Institute Director Alexander Cooley about why luxury real estate deals are so susceptible to money laundering operations. In part two, I speak with Columbia University Journalism School Fellows Manuela Andreoni and Inti Pacheco about their investigation into the Trump Organization’s deal in Batumi, Georgia, which contributed to Davidson’s article, “Trump’s Business of Corruption,” published in The New Yorker in August 2017. (Davidson's article about Azerbaijan, "Trump's Worst Deal," was published in March 2017).
