Trump's casinos fined for money laundering in 2015


Good news re: ACA

Trump ain't gonna kill it off soon, if ever.

His son-in-law has a brother, and the brother has a business based on an app that relies on the ACA just the way it is.


Trump, asking for money before his speech:

via Twitter

Another huge shoe dropped in the money laundering angle.

I have been tracking this from several sources, mostly on Twitter, but this short synopsis is pretty clear.

Sources for the statements are at the link.

Donald Trump cabinet member and business associate co-owned Russian money laundering bank

Deutsche Bank has mysteriously loaned more than a billion dollars to Donald Trump and his business partners over the past few years, at a time when most other banks viewed him as too big a risk. We’ve also reported that Deutsche Bank was busted for laundering Russian money for clients in places like New York, where Trump lives, raising the question of whether its willingness to float loans to Trump was really just a cover for Russia to funnel money to him.

But as it turns out, Deutsche Bank was laundering the money through Bank of Cyprus.
The two most prominent owners of Bank of Cyprus?
One is Donald Trump’s associate Dmitry Rybolovlev.
The other is Donald Trump’s new Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross
That’s the missing link established by Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show tonight. And suddenly, you realize this is all one larger scandal.

Russia was laundering money into Deutsche Bank, through another bank owned by two Donald Trump associates, at the same time it just happened to be inexplicably loaning large sums of money to Trump even though he was a poor investment risk.
Trump then rewarded one of the go-between bank’s owners by making him the U.S. Secretary of Commerce.
And the other owner of the bank just happens to be the guy who does real estate business with Trump and keeps flying into whatever town Trump visits whenever he’s away from the White House.

Letter from Don Trump Jr to Felix Satter, confirming Twitler's ties to Satter

First the letter, and below it the source from Dworkin on Twitter, who has been doing a lot of digging.


Turns out, Conway is not even housebroken

Trump Hotel in Toronto failed, fraud alleged.

4 days before our election last fall, the Trump hotel in Toronto went bankrupt, like other Trump hotels in the past.

It was backed by Russian money and Trump was in partnership with the developer, Joo Kim Tiah, who is the son of a convicted Malaysian stock fraud billionaire, Tony Tiah.

but wait! That was not the only Trump Hotel to go bankrupt.
4 years previously there was one in Ft. Lauderdale.
And the managing partner on that one was....Felix Sater, the man Trump says he does not know.

There seems to be a pattern of pump and dump in Trump's investments, along with shady characters from Russia to the Near East.
Trump also was involved in the ill fated Trump SoHo hotel-condominium, ( full details here: http://ny.curbed.com/2014/9/17/10046140/trump-soho-heads-to-foreclosure-due-to-unsellable-condos)

Misconduct Complaint Filed Against Reince Priebus For Interfering With FBI Russia Investigation

This was complaint sent to the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation, he could be disbarred.
Sadly, no charges yet apparent in DC for his attempted obstruction of justice.

A misconduct complaint has been filed against Trump Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation relating to Priebus interfering with the FBI’s investigations into the Trump/Russia scandal.

The complaint filed by attorney J. Whitfield Larrabee states:

There is probable cause to charge attorney Reince Priebus (“Priebus”) with violations of Wisconsin’s Rules of Professional Conduct for Attorneys, Supreme Court Rules, Chapter 20. The violations of these rules relate to Priebus’ corrupt attempt to influence investigations by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) into criminal activity involving associates of Donald J. Trump (“Trump”) and Russian government officials.….

It is a violation of SCR 20:8.4 (b) for a lawyer to “commit a criminal act that reflects adversely on the lawyer’s honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects.” It is a violation of SCR 20:8.4 (c) “to engage in conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation.” There is probable cause to charge Priebus with such serious violations of these particular ethical requirements that it will be necessary and appropriate to revoke his license to practice of law if the charges are established.

Mr. Larrabee told PoliticusUSA, “I filed the complaint as a concerned citizen and attorney because I was alarmed that Reince Priebus would communicate with the FBI about a pending investigation of the collusion between Trump campaign officials and senior Russian intelligence officials. Communications by Priebus with the FBI about a pending investigation of this sort severely violates the integrity of the investigation and is a blatant form of corruption.”

International scholar visiting Texas A&M "mistakenly detained" by customs officials

A visiting scholar to Texas A&M was detained by customs officials in Houston this week while on his way to speak at a symposium in Aggieland, officials said Friday at the conference.
Henry Rousso was flying in from Paris to participate in the Hagler Institute Symposium when he was “mistakenly detained” Wednesday evening upon his arrival, according to Richard Golsan, director of the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research at Texas A&M.
“When he called me with this news two nights ago, he was waiting for customs officials to send him back to Paris as an illegal alien on the first flight out,” said Golsan during his introduction to the session which Rousso was set to participate in.

His work centers on the history and memory of traumatic pasts, France in WWII and the post-war period, his profile on the CNRS website says.
Rousso's current study involves the relationship between history, memory and justice.

His "crime" ???
He was born an Egyptian.
