The Curious Case of Wilbur Ross.
Since Commander Babyfingers tends to surround himself with fellow grifters and scam artists, folks naturally expected to find dirty laundry aplenty in the Ross closet.
Ross had been Vice Chairman of the largest bank in Cyprus.
Cyprus' largest import though isn't a foodstuff. It's money. Cyprus is a banking haven - or was, at least.
The Ross story ain't quite that though.
Ross saved Babyfingers' a** perhaps more so than any other figure in Trump's failure-riddled past.
Arguably, without Wilbur Ross, there would be no modern-day Trump.
As is his M.O., Trump was borrowing and spending like a narcissistic loon... (see: 2017 Tax Plan)
Enter Wilbur Ross.
Ross represented some of Trump's investors... and to the dismay of other investors, he helped engineer a plan that left Trump in control of the assets he had bankrupted.
For Trump, it gave him a career-saving lifeline: it kept him in his businesses with an income source.
So, Trump likely has Ross way atop a short list of people who "helped" (i.e. enabled) him to continue profiteering off failure for decades.
Ross is not a classic grifter in the traditional mold of someone like say Carl Icahn (who Trump also turned to and who is now under investigation).
Ross has always been quite blue despite the presumption that he's on Team Red.
Ross saved them and still sits on their Board, I believe.
In 2012-2014, the Cypriot banking sector collapsed.
In 2014, Ross rode into town and plucked a senior role at the country's largest bank ostensibly to lead a turnaround.
That's kinda what he does.
As was discovered in the Panama Papers, he as investments which tie to Russian-held companies. He isn't without taint.
I'm not sure the case won't prove to be the opposite.
Ross is no friend of Repubs... and he sat atop a bank whose vaults were filled with the kinda money a Robert Mueller would want to know about.22/
Cyprus and Ross are smoke that might actually help Trump catch fire.
The real money trail runs through Germany and Deutsche Bank.
When people do things that benefit the narcissist - even out of self-interest - the narcissist mistakes it for a personal fondness for them.
That's the irony of narcissism. Narcs are perpetual manipulators, yet are highly susceptible to being manipulated.
Trump has no idea who his friends are... and has no idea who isn't one.
