All of it’s about to come to a head. (MEGA THREAD)
You should watch this from our girl Rachel. She ties many important points very neatly together, and also gives a great explanation of money laundering.
I’d like to point out that Deutsche Bank is a trigger subject for trolls, as evidenced by my little party last night. Keep reading, and you’ll understand why.
Let’s dive in.

We should probably start with VTB and Andrey Kostin. VTB = Kremlin money. VTB is a Russian state bank.
Andrey Kostin was head of another Russian state bank, Vnesheconombank (VEB) before Putin made him head of Vneshtorgbank, or VTB.
His son, also named Andrey, was a big wig at the Moscow outpost of Deutsche Bank, until he died in a crash in 2011.
Facebook and Twitter are running off of VTB (Russian/mafia) money.
VTB was the bank that allegedly agreed to finance Trump Tower Moscow.
Here, it's asserted that the banker Kushner met with after the elections, did so on orders from Andrey Kostin.
VTB appears to have partnered with Deutsche Bank in money laundering.
Oh - here’s who was leading the investigation into Deutsche Bank and money laundering (among other things): Preet Bharara.
Let’s go back to December of 2017.
First, here’s the article from Handelsblatt (in English) that first broke the story of Deutsche Bank receiving a subpoena from Mueller. That was on December 5, 2017 (article states that the subpoena had been issued several weeks prior).

As an aside, IMO the issue of the subpoena likely preceded Brett Kavanaugh being added to the short list of SCOTUS nominees:
Trump’s lawyers immediately issued statements that the Deutsche Bank story was false:
Handelsblatt: NICE TRY. YOU’RE WRONG.
December 2017 - April 2018: fires, deaths and armed stand-offs at Trump properties
June 27, 2018: Justice Kennedy, whose son was Trump’s personal banker at Deutsche Bank, suddenly retires.
July 4, 2018: delegation of lawmakers go to Moscow to beg Putin for help.
July 9, 2018: traitors return from Moscow, ostensibly with an action plan, and Trump nominates Boofer Beer-Bong Rape Face to SCOTUS.
July 14 - 16, 2018: Mueller: “Oh, really?” IRA indictment unsealed and Butina arrested.
July 16, 2018: Trump goes to Putin and tells him he’ll do anything - ANYTHING. JUST PLEASE! HAAAALP! Putin leads him around on a leash. World watches in disbelief.
After that, more dead people:
August 6, 2018: Traitor McJheri Curl goes to Moscow to hand deliver a letter from Trump to Putin. Contents likely: “HAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLP!”
After that, more dead people, and Trump revokes Brennan’s security clearance.
Not long after that, the mystery case is filed, with many unusual things happening around it. This is what happened mid-August through about October:
And this is what happened through about now.
In late November, there was another massive raid at Deutsche Bank.
It was the same day that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty:
And then yesterday:
There’s been much speculation as to who the mystery company/country is. My money is on VEB, VTB, or possibly both.
And here is another facet of the overall story:
A little re-cap on Bob Mueller:
-oversaw Pan Am investigation/prosecution
-oversaw Gambino crime family investigation/prosecution
-director of FBI
-approved by Senate 100-0 to stay an additional 2 years as DIR FBI
-was director of FBI when Obama issued executive order with strategy to combat transnational organized crime, stating it was a national emergency
I would also recommend that you read up on Zainab Ahmad, the prosecutor handling the mystery case. Her background/specialties: terrorism, national security, cyber crime.
Her sub-specialty: extra-territorial cases, meaning she is comfortable pounding the pavement overseas, looking for evidence of crimes committed against Americans.
And so here we are.
There are some people who need to be recognized.
First, our public servants. I don’t think I could love them any more than I do right now. Look at the timeline, read the indictments. They love this country. They believe in this dream of ours. They've been working 24/7 to bring an end to this and to protect us.
Second, I’m thinking today of the journalists who put their lives on the line so that we could follow the money. Without them, we wouldn’t have been able to piece together this story. At least one of them paid for it dearly.
Honor our public servants and these journalists by reading, understanding, and teaching others. We still have freedom of speech. Use it.
Finally, I’m thinking of all the citizen journalists who took a stand, and who have taught all of us (including me) so, so much. They took massive abuse. And even though they must have been terrified at moments, they kept going. Thank you, all of you. ❤️❤️❤️
