🔥Cohen not only is voluntarily cooperating w/Mueller, he’s also cooperating with *NY state* authorities into the inner workings of the Trump family charity and Trump Org.😎

👋🏼Buh-bye, @realDonaldTrump and spawn, Don Jr, Kremlin🇷🇺Barbie, and Eric👋🏼

Mueller’s grilling of Cohen has focused on ALL aspects of Trump's dealings w/#Russia🇷🇺—including financial & business deals, and #collusion by Team🇷🇺Trump to throw the election to Trump.

Plus, Manafort is squealing.😎

As I’ve been saying: Team🇷🇺Traitor is TOAST‼️
🔥@ABC says Cohen has been cooperating with *both* federal & state prosecutors WITHOUT any guarantee of leniency (no plea deal).

This means that Cohen knows that MORE charges are coming, and he is *desperate* to cut a deal. But Mueller isn’t.😎

🔥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/

reuters.com/article/us-dan…
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/

⁉️WHAT⁉️

Public pension funds in #NJ and #OH used **HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS of taxpayer money** to bankroll a failing business: #AMI, the company that owns The National Enquirer.

Gee, this sounds kinda bad, doesn't it.🙄

AMI/The National Enquirer is not owned by @realdonaldtrump’s pal, David Pecker. It’s owned by Chatham Asset Management (hedge fund).🤨
Chatham & another Chatham co. manage **$500 million of #NJ state pension funds & $125 million of #OH state pension funds** and are raising new money/trying to refinance **$450 million in AMI debt**. Only w/Chatham’s support did Pecker keep control of AMI.

Aus aktuellem Anlass: #Nazis in unseren #Behörden
Ein Thread.
#Haftbefehl 1/
Es geht um all die #Hutbürger in den #Behörden. Denn dort keimt schon seit langem das Gefühl, ungerecht behandelt zu werden. Die #Arbeit ist eintönig, die Bezahlung unterdurchschnittlich, das Ansehen schlecht und die Zukunftsperspektiven eher mau.
#Haftbefehl 2/
Wenn dann noch täglich die hetzerischen #Bild-Schlagzeilen in den Teeküchen ausliegen und der Frust auf #HartzIVEmpfänger, #Griechen oder eben #Migranten projiziert wird, entwickelt sich schnell ein immer tiefer sitzender #Rassismus bei den #Beamten/Angestellten.

The allegations of Alexander Torshin’s links with organized crime and money laundering in Spain first sounded in 2014 after authorities of Spain detained ten people in Mallorca on suspicion of swindling, among whom there were Romanov along with his wife.

On August 21, 2013 Torshin narrowly escaped arrest when he was tipped off to a raid that nabbed his fellow thug Alexandre Romanov. #MOB

Some interesting tweets from Torshin on Nov 2016

FTR if you see people posting these tweets of his saying they are from the 2016 election they are wrong. He was an election observer for the 2012 election which was Kline Preston's idea.

"The single biggest danger in business and life, other than outright failure, is to be successful without being resolutely clear about why you are successful in the first place."

Dear Artiste,

Now that the HITS have finally come and the flood gates of paid performance gigs have been flung open, do not forget what got you here in the first place, or you'll soon be back where you were.
You must be intentional about your journey and make time for introspection, discovery, improvement, replenishment and conscious brand building, in the midst of the frenzy. Of course, this is easier said than done, but failure to do this may prove fatal.
