Something is rustling in the Deutsche Bank/Russian oligarch/money laundering/2008 Trump loans story. The media keeps forgetting that Steve Feinberg is inside Deutsche...and our intel apparatus as Chairman of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. wsj.com/articles/when-…
And Feinberg has a nice little secret squirrel training camp and makes the guns that mass shooters choose. Some weirdness here: newyorker.com/business/curre…
A great chart by @WendySiegelman on the loans from Deutsche Bank and an unusual company, Ladder Capital Finance with 31% growth. Don't overlook that little foot note about the Israeli "King of Diamonds" Lev Leviev. medium.com/@wsiegelman/tr…
Lev Leviev has his own world of troubles in money laundering via diamonds and . As do many of the Russian Israeli oligarchs and associates who hovered around Trump and the election. timesofisrael.com/diamond-smuggl…
As Steve Bannon said; it is all about money laundering but the nexus seems to hover around Russia, Israel and the Gulf, the standard spin cycle for money laundering that needs a US or European cleaner. reuters.com/article/us-eur…
The UAE has made trillions from Russians, Cyprus used to be their favorite "holiday" destination but Russians now like to visit their money in Dubai while staying in overpriced hotels or inside the labyrinths of million dollar condos. theamericanconservative.com/articles/ameri…
Israel along with Malta and Cyprus are favored second passport stops for the wealthy. This creates confusion in the narrative since many of Trump associates can be described as "Israeli" or "Russian" or by dual nationality leading to a confused narrative. haaretz.com/us-news/know-y…
Trump continues to make positive comments about dictators and or support world leaders accused or charged with corruption. Or attack their opponents. Donald knows money and safety is in politics and corruption. But is this a last resort or escape strategy? wbur.org/onpoint/2019/0…
There is no proof of illegal corruption, just the normal corruption that comes with donors and payoffs. But Donald is not really paying off for Russia, Israel or the UAE, he tries, but is blocked. So are we just making the tit for tat corruption story up? globalwitness.org/en/campaigns/c…
Or did "dirty" foreign money transform Trump from a dilettante serial bankrupt into a closely held cash rich family? The tax returns and the rationale for lending him money by these two institutions may be an important answer in telling that story. marketwatch.com/story/donald-t…
