A Spanish prosecutor who has spearheaded investigations into Russian organised crime said wiretapped conversations involving a pro-Putin oligarch who met with Donald Trump Jr. had been sent to the FBI.

In remarks reported by Yahoo News, José Grinda told the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington, that Spanish police had wiretapped conversations between Alexander Torshin, a deputy governor of Russia's Central Bank, and convicted money launderer and mafia boss Alexander Romanov.

"Just a few months ago, the wiretaps of these telephone conversations were given to the FBI," Grinda said in response to a question from the outlet.

Torshin, who has forged close links with the National Rifle Association (NRA), spoke with Trump Jr., president Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., during a meeting of gun rights lobby groups in May 2016.

best (and virtually only) info on Grinda (June 2018):

Grinda, like a Spanish Zelig, has questioned sanctioned oligarch Oleg Deripaska, jailed the mafia kingpin Zakhar Kalashov, played a walk-on role in the fall of the Russian defence minister Anatoly Serdyukov, and convinced Alexander Litvinenko to testify against the Russian mafia and its ties to the Kremlin only months before the former FSB agent was murdered in London.

“More should be encouraged to follow Grinda’s example,” said Ana Gomes, a Portuguese member of the European Parliament and Vice-Chair of the assembly’s Special Committee on Financial Crimes, Tax Evasion, and Tax Avoidance, who campaigns for sanctions on Russian kleptocrats. Grinda is as highly regarded in the J. Edgar Hoover Building, home of the FBI.

Maxwell Marker, Section Chief of the Transnational Organized Crime Section – Eastern Hemisphere, lauded Grinda’s “relentless” pursuit of mafia groups which “threaten national security not only in Spain, but in the United States,” in a statement to The American Interest. They are more than just friends. “The FBI has a longstanding partnership with José Grinda,” said Marker, who described the relationship with Grinda as “important” and “valuable.”

He has been so successful that in February 2016, France intercepted a mafia kingpin ordering Grinda’s assassination. “I don’t think they’re going to get it done,” Grinda says, adding that a second hit on him was ordered in March 2018.
