A sprawling mansion on the Upper East Side has been frozen as part of a hard-core battle between the US government and Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, The Post has learned.
US officials say Deripaska, an aluminum billionaire, is close both with Russian mob leaders and Russian President Vladimir Putin and that he is on the sanctions list because he is allegedly involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering.
Deripaska also had President Trumps ex-campaign manager Paul Manafort who has been convicted of crimes including money-laundering and who is cooperating with US special counsel Robert Muellers Russia probe on his payroll for years.
FBI agents tried unsuccessfully to flip Deripaska in exchange for information on Russian organized crime and Russias aid to President Trumps 2016 campaign, the New York Times reported last month.
Deripaska previously had worked on a thwarted effort to rescue an FBI agent who had been captured in Iran, the Times reported.

How is he different from the Clintons?
He doesn't have anything on Jeff?
Summer vacation in a foriegn country.
A cheap holiday in other peoples misery.
Or maybe escorting John F Kerry, sekrit ajunt!
Forget Deripaska. What about Soros?
In 2009, when Mueller ran the FBI, the bureau asked Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska to spend millions of his own dollars funding an FBI-supervised operation to rescue a retired FBI agent, Robert Levinson, captured in Iran while working for the CIA in 2007
IMO freezing Soros’s assets would make more sense.
“Feds freeze Russian oligarchs assets, Upper East Side mansion”
Oh boy, that Sessions is sure a go-getter hard ass.
Russian oligarchy and Soros empire are not mutually exclusive.
This guy worked with the FBI with Mueller.
Taking his stuff because hes involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering. A wonderful precedent. We can apply it to a lot of American politicians
“FBI agents tried unsuccessfully to flip Deripaska in exchange for information on Russian organized crime and Russias aid to President Trumps 2016 campaign”
No...just wanted him to flip on Trump. They couldn’t care less about the other stuff.
The two are not mutually exclusive.
One agent who helped court Deripaska was Andrew McCabe, the recently fired FBI deputy director who played a seminal role starting the Trump-Russia case, multiple sources confirmed.
ussians the FBI asked for help when it began investigating the now-infamous Fusion GPS Steele Dossier. Waldman, his American lawyer until the sanctions hit, gave me a detailed account, some of which U.S. officials confirm separately.
Two months before Trump was elected president, Deripaska was in New York as part of Russias United Nations delegation when three FBI agents awakened him in his home; at least one agent had worked with Deripaska on the aborted effort to rescue Levinson. During an hour-long visit, the agents posited a theory that Trumps campaign was secretly colluding with Russia to hijack the U.S. election.
Deripaska laughed but realized, despite the joviality, that they were serious, the lawyer said. So he told them in his informed opinion the idea they were proposing was false. You are trying to create something out of nothing, he told them. The agents left though the FBI sought more information in 2017 from the Russian, sources tell me. Waldman declined to say if Deripaska has been in contact with the FBI since Sept, 2016.
So why care about some banished Russian oligarchs account now?
I hope they repossess his mini giraffe.
“Very closely linked to Manafort”
Collusion media strikes again
Deripaska hated Manafort due to a long time business dispute
Deripaska’s lawyer was employing CHRIS STEELE at the same time the DNC was
It was Obama that let Deripaska back into the country
The Daily Beast
The U.S. assets of Oleg Deripaska, the Russian oligarch very closely linked to Manafort, have been frozen (link: https://thebea.st/2OJQ4fs) thebea.st/2OJQ4fs
allegedly involved in murder, money-laundering, bribery and racketeering. Just like the clinton mob.
