There WAS wiretapping at Trump Tower: FBI eavesdropped on Russian money-laundering ring that operated out of iconic skyscraper for two years

  • FBI had a court-approved warrant to monitor a Russian money-laundering ring operating out of unit 63A in Trump Tower between 2011-2013
  • Suspected mastermind of the $50million crime syndicate was notorious Russian mob boss Alimzhan Tokhtakhunov
  • Tokhtakhunov, 68, is best known for allegedly trying to fix 2002 Winter Olympics in favor of Russian figure skating teams 
  • FBI's operation resulted in multiple arrests and convictions, but Tokhtakhunov managed to slip away
  • He resurfaced months later in VIP section at Miss Universe in Moscow, not far from Donald Trump
