In one of those strange coincidences, the cofounder of the Blackstone Group, the late Peter George Peterson (1926 – March 20, 2018) also lived in River House on Park Avenue. Peterson was chairman of the CFR from 1985 to 2007.

Have you ever heard of Russian billionaire Yuri Milner?
In 2015, Milner “invested” $850,000 in the Cadre start-up in New York, owned by Jared and his brother Joshua Kushner (with a third associate). The complete group of investors (including George Soros and Peter Thiel) “invested” $50 million in the Trump in-laws.
Milner said he knew Joshua Kushner but had met Jared Kushner only once, at a conference in Aspen, Colorado, in autumn 2016.
Yuri Milner is well-connected to at least 2 Russian state-controlled companies that used him as an intermediary to invest in Facebook and Twitter that played an important role in the 2016 US presidential elections.
Facebook’s CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, became friends with Milner and invited him to invest in Facebook. In 2011, Zuckerberg attended Milner’s wedding in California. Milner and Zuckerberg are advisers to each other’s “philanthropic” ventures.
In 2014, Zuckerberg, Milner and Harvey Weinstein hosted an event for The imitation game
See Yuri Milner on the far left, Mark Zuckerberg second from right and the star of the movie, Keira Knightley, in the white dress.
Milner through his DST Global funds invested heavily in Twitter and Facebook for the VTB Bank and the financial arm of the state oil and gas firm Gazprom.
Gazprom's investment subsidiary is managed by Uzbek-Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov (also co-owner of Arsenal FC).
In 2009, Gazprom took control of Kanton for $920 million. In 2011, Kanton took a majority stake in DST USA II that by 2012 had bought more than 50 million shares Facebook, more than 3% of the company.
Usmanov sold the last of his Facebook holdings in September 2013 and Milner said DST Global had sold all stakes in Facebook and Twitter by 2014. Usmanov is estimated to have made more than $1 billion on his original $200 million investment.
VTB funded DST Investments 3 with $191 million, which bought 11 million Twitter shares in 2011. In 2013, the VTB-funded vehicle held a 2% stake in Twitter. According to Milner, VTB sold all of it in May 2014. The profit has been estimated at more than $240 million.
VTB has a close relationship with the Kremlin and reportedly received more state subsidies than any other Russian bank. The bank’s chairman, Andrey Kostin, is a former KGB foreign intelligence operative. VTB funded 45% of the Twitter stake.
Both VTB and Gazprom are now under US sanctions: https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/n ... r-investor

President Donald Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been granted a security clearance that ensures that, in his role as White House adviser with a broad international portfolio, he has access to top secret information.
Kushner’s attorney Abbe Lowell said that Kushner's clearance was decided by career officials in the intelligence community and the FBI:
It happened the way it happens for thousands of people. There was nobody in the political process that had anything to do with it.
In April, Kushner was interviewed for a second time by the office of “special” cover-up artist Robert Mueller (the first time was last fall): https://www.fox25boston.com/news/ap-lea ... /755278071
