I believe the 'sanctions' were those the Obama Presidency imposed.  IF they're are no longer there was the law broken?

Russian-born businessman Felix Sater has confirmed a bombshell detail in the Russia investigation

 

  • Felix Sater, a Russian-born businessman and associate of President Donald Trump, confirmed Friday that the Trump Organization was pursuing a deal with a sanctioned Russian bank at the height of the 2016 election.
  • The company was trying to secure financing for a Trump Tower in Moscow from Russia's VTB Bank through a local developer.
  • The US imposed sanctions on VTB in 2014 and 2015, which froze its assets in the country and blocked US entities from doing business with the bank.
  • The revelation will be of interest to special counsel Robert Mueller, who recently subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents related to the Trump Tower Moscow deal.

Felix Sater, a Russian-born businessman with financial ties to the Trump Organization, confirmed Friday that President Donald Trump's business was privately negotiating a deal with a sanctioned Russian bank during the 2016 US election.
