Nimmt man an, dass es sich bei der #AserbaidschanConnection tatsächlich um handfeste #CDUKorruption handelt, so stellt sich natürlich auch die Frage, wie eigentlich Geld eines kaukasischen Diktators zu deutschen Parlamentariern fließen soll.

Einiges weiß man dazu seit Jahren:
Man weiß zum Beispiel, dass #Aliyev insgesamt etwa 2,9 Milliarden US-Dollar über vier britische Briefkastenfirmen und deren Bankkonten bei der #DanskeBank in Estland in Europa verteilt hat. Damit wurden zahlreiche #Porsche gekauft - und Politiker wie #Strenz geschmiert.
Dieser "Aserbaidschanische Waschsalon" war zwischen 2010 und 2015 aktiv. Seit 2013 hatten jedoch alle großen internationalen Banken ihre Beziehungen zur #DanskeBank beendet, wegen Geldwäscheverdacht.

Alle, außer einer - die #DeutscheBank:…

Hmmm, well that's interesting. The EBA (European Banking Authority) closed it's own investigation into #DanskeBank money laundering, after they drafted an internal report on how EU laws about how Danske was supervised were breached.

I wonder if and/or how many people at the EBA may have been involved in Danske bank (or other bank) corruption.
The EBA is an "independent EU authority" that is supposed to make sure that the European banking sector is properly supervised and managed. LOLOL

W Liberal Democracy vs Transnational Organized Crime

Why the Far R populists hate Soros:

Soros spent billions funding orgs & initiatives devoted to promoting liberal Dem’y, indep’t media, good gov’t, transparency, & pluralism across RU & E EU post Berlin Wall.

GOP & the RW media machine parrot Putin & his populist dictator (TOC) cronies’ anti - Soros propaganda, & are in lock step pushing anti Immigrant, racist, xenophobic, misogynist, rich v poor narratives to outrage, incite conflict & exacerbate divisions.

Remember Putin & his TOC Dictator pals & Drug Cartels caused the mass migrations via wars & violence.

RU/TOC funds terrorist orgs such as ISIS

Mass migration was intentional- meant to destabilize WLD while TOC pushed anti immigrant false narratives = conflict.

📌On June 8th, Steve Engel head of the OLC at the DOJ, invited Barr to lunch after he rec’d Barr’s unsolicited memo criticizing the Mueller probe.

📌Did the WH decision to hire Barr influenced by private chats he had about his legal views on Mueller’s investigation?

📌Steve Engel served on the Trump campaign transition team and is a Kav pal.

📌McCain was the sole GOP senator to vote against confirming Engel to lead the DOJ’s OLC citing his role in the controversial torture memos under the GWB adm.

“I cannot ... vote for any nominee who in any way has supported the use of enhanced interrogation."

“Mr. Engel reviewed & commented on this memo, which attempted to justify interrogation techniques that violate the Geneva Conventions and stain our nat’l honor,”

Mueller’s Team is seething as their findings are far more damaging for Trump than Barr revealed.

SCO had prepared their own summaries of their findings that Barr willfully suppressed & instead substituted his own far more flattering summation in the 4 page letter.

The normally silent OSC clearly felt Barr mischaracterized their findings to the extent they felt the need to send a warning shot across the bow.

Why did Barr mischaracterized OSC’s findings?

Manipulate the narrative?

Suppress the truth to the American public?

📌The SCO’s investigators had already written multiple summaries of the report, and some believe Barr should have included more of their material in the 4-page letter

📌Kush identified as senior WH official whose security clearance was denied by career officials.

Love it "The money laundering scandal that’s swamped banks..." Swamped is certainly the correct verb! Up to $23B a year from 2010-2016! They even knew it was connected to the #Magnitsky case in 2013, must have concealed that knowledge rather than reporting it! #DanskeBank
The allegations lead to raids, stockholder revolt, firing of the CEO & efforts are underway to fire the Board of Directors.

🔥In what @billbrowder calls the "largest #MoneyLaundering scandal in European history," Danske Bank CEO Thomas Borgen RESIGNS after a probe uncovered $234 BILLION of suspicious transactions at its tiny #Estonian branch👉🏼“BILLIONS of rubles monthly." 1/…
Way back in 2007, Danske Bank was criticized by the Estonian regulator and received info from Danish regulators pointing out: “criminal activity in its pure form, including #MoneyLaundering."🤨

#DanskeBank FAILED to do anything to stop it. Why not? Likely, b/c they PROFITED.🤬2/
In 2014 (7 years later!), a whistleblower at the Estonian branch said that #DanskeBank did NOT properly investigate the #MoneyLaundering allegations, which were not shared with its board.

Danske said that measures to get its business under control had been "insufficient."🙄 3/

1/ Danske Bank: ehk kõige olulisem siin on see, et mitte TÕDE ei ole siin peamine eesmärk, vaid kõik tegelevad oma huvide juhtimisega - Danske, Finantsinspektsioonid siin ja seal, Eesti riik, Taani riik jne. #danskebank
2/ Heaks näiteks on Danske samm anda 200M eur heategevuseks. Väga vähetõenäoline, et kuigi palju sellest Eestisse jõuab, kuigi Danske võttis Eestist välja sel ajal kenasti kasumit. PR samm Taani avalikkuse ees pildi parandamiseks
3/ Ühtlasi on Danskel grupi tasemel oluline näidata, et see süülisus asus Eestis, millest juhtkond midagi ei teadnud. Ma arvan, et ka Eestis suures osas ei olnud see pahatahtlik tegevus, nähti lihtsalt ärivõimalust ja alahinnati riske.
