this episode is no longer available

A new Dutch documentary, released earlier this month, called “The Dubious Friends of Donald Trump,” attempts to provide context for the allegations surrounding Trump’s Russian ties by investigating the president’s financial history and previous connections.

In examining Trump’s business partners, the filmmakers encounter the Russian mafia, including business and personal connections to oligarchs in Russia. The documentary takes a close look at Trump’s connections to the country, starting with his first trip to Russia in the 1980s.

The Zembla filmmakers interview some of Trump’s controversial friends, a former CIA agent, fraud investigators and attorneys, as well as U.S. Sen. Sheldon White house, a Democrat representing Rhode Island.
