60. *Cough* Hello. *Cough*

Is this thing on?

Thanks, @LincolnsBible. Where to begin! 🤔🧐

Well, I guess we should start with this 🚩thread🚩 which discusses the Russian Direct Investment Fund. Here’s Scaramucci's meeting:
60. The thing with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) is that it's been under US sanctions since 2015 over Russia’s invasion and annexation of the Ukrainian territory of Crimea. (Like so many other Russian financial institutions.)

61. Funny how you were talking about busting sanctions earlier in this thread, @LincolnsBible. Gosh, could Scaramucci have been discussing money laundering & sanction busting with Kirill Dmitriev!

That wouldn't be good, but it wouldn't be a shock either.
62. Here's the thing. RDIF’s “former” parent company, VEB, isn’t really a bank. It’s Putin’s personal slush fund. Putin, while he was Prime Minister (not President) used to be the chairman of VEB.

Money from VEB even helped finance Trump Tower Toronto.
63. Now, VEB used to be, officially, the parent company of the RDIF, but due to sanctions, Putin wrote something up & said the companies are no longer linked.

The problem is:
1. RDIF money is Kremlin money
2. In Putin’s Mafia State, it’s all related.

64. Here’s a copy of the text from the US Treasury sanctions put on the RDIF in 2015.

See what it says at the bottom there? “Linked to: Vnesheconombank”

Otherwise known as VEB. Putin's personal slush fund. Piggy bank. Laundromat.

65. Now who was it that held a secret meeting with the chairman of VEB in December of 2016, during the Trump transition again? Gosh. Who could it have been!

Oh, right …
66. So, let me get this straight.

During the transition, Jared met with VEB. Secretly.
Then Erik Prince met with the head of the RDIF. Secretly.
Then Scaramucci met with the RDIF and said … NBD guys!

Hmm … maybe a reminder is in order.
67. Who’s looking to buy Mooch’s laun--company now? HNA, the largest shareholder in Deutsche Bank.

“I don’t see any national security reason why it wouldn’t close,” Scaramucci said.

Cuz national security is definitely a thing Mooch has ever cared about.

68. … but Deutsche bank. Hmm. They keep popping up in the Trump orbit, don't they?

I wonder why. Could it be because they’ve laundered tens of billions of dollars of dirty Russian money just this decade?
69. But here we are again, back to Jared Kushner. He's been under increased scrutiny by Bob Mueller's team recently. I wonder if it's related to ....

70. You mean Jared's $285 million loan from Deutsche Bank came right around the same time all this was happening?
71. Yep, and now Bob Mueller is looking into all of it. He has the bank records. Trump's and Kushner's.

Mueller is going for it all.

72. Because it's ALL. ABOUT. THE. MONEY.
73. And Mooch is having a serious sad because Bannon told the truth, for once, about Mueller's investigation being ALL. ABOUT. THE. MONEY.

"I was right. WAAAAAHHHH. Buy my company. PLEASE. HELP ME. PLEASE GOD HELP ME."

74. Poor Mooch just wanted his payday and a TV show, but *SUNLIGHT* remains the best disinfectant for criminals and wannabe gangsters.
thedailybeast.com/anthony-scaram…
75. So, bravo, @davidfrum. Keep shining a light. Someone has to.

I’ll point you back to where this whole thread began.

Why? Because as LB said, Mooch needs to go, along with all the other Mob. Mob. Mob. tied to Donald Trump’s administration.
