Listen To The Series Finale Of Our FinCEN Files Podcast

"I completely understand why I would get flagged in a suspicious activity report," Felix Sater told BuzzFeed News. "I don't like it. But I understand it."

Throughout their reporting on the FinCEN Files, Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier wanted to talk to someone who was the subject of a suspicious activity report to ask, “Why did the bank flag you?”

Only one person was willing to talk: a real estate developer and former associate of President Donald Trump's, Felix Sater.

"I completely understand why I would get flagged in a suspicious activity report," Felix Sater told them in the final episode of Suspicious Activity: Inside the FinCEN Files. "I don't like it. But I understand it."
