Sergei Millian, the alleged source of the dramatic allegations that the Russian government has blackmail material over President Donald Trump and that the Trump campaign conspired with Kremlin to defeat Hillary Clinton, has actually faked his business links with several big U.S. companies, according to The Daily Caller.
The Belarusian businessman, known as “Source E” in the 35-page dossier on Trump, has earlier claimed that his small trade group has partnered with the likes of Coca-Cola, Delta Airlines, International Hotel Group and the Trump Organization.
Representatives of these companies, however, said these connections were fabricated by Millian, who at best overstated his working relationships with them.
The Daily Caller reports:
“He’s basically a ‘party-crasher’ always looking for attention,” Callahan said of Millian.
Millian, whose real name is Siarhei Kukuts, did not respond to numerous email and phone requests for comment. He has issued vague denials on social media about the dossier.
The characterizations of Millian, if accurate, would appear to cast significant doubt on the dossier’s central claims.
It is not clear how Millian’s unsubstantiated information made it to the dossier on Trump. Last week, former national intelligence director James Clapper refuted claims on the dossier by saying there was no evidence of collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.
