Sergei Millian, a Belarus-born translator who serves as chairman for a small trade group called the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce is believed to be the source for the most salacious entries in the Hillary dossier.
He is allegedly living in New York City but the congressional investigators are having a tough time locating him. No doubt he doesn’t want to answer questions about the information he provided to Steele. Millian is known as a BS-itter. Even his business associates say you have to take anything he says with a grain of salt. In the dossier, it is alleged that Millian is “Source D” and “Source E” — and described as a “close associate of Trump”.
He is not as the Hillary dossier refers to him as a close associate of Trump. He claimed that he was a broker for Trump. He wasn’t.
Millian was identified by The Wall Street Journal, ABC News and The Washington Post in 2017 as the unwitting source for some of the dossier’s most jarring and unverified allegations.
Chances are he was trying to make himself out to be someone more important than he really is.
It remains unclear whether the FBI or Special Counsel Robert Mueller have interviewed Millian, who is believed to reside in New York City. Mueller’s team would likely be highly interested in talking to him as he would seemingly have information that could shed light on how the dossier was put together.
Millian has denied being a source for Steele, but he has avoided speaking directly to the media about whether he may have provided information that ended up in the dossier without his knowledge.
Millian, whose real name is Siarhei Kukuts, has had some contact with at least one Trump campaign adviser and has claimed to have worked as a broker for Trump’s real estate company.
Millian claimed he was in line for a job in the Trump White House but there is no record of him even being considered for a job.
