Mr. President, is there any Kazakh money in Trump Soho?

TRUMP: No idea. Really no idea.

No idea? Thatís odd. Because anyone who has ever looked at the Trump Soho has a very, very good idea.

Ever since a series of bankruptcies left banks unwilling to lend to him, Donald Trump has been on the lookout for partners willing to fund the buildings that bear his name. Ö

A Financial Times investigation has found evidence that one Trump venture has multiple ties to an alleged international money laundering network. Title deeds, bank records and correspondence show that a Kazakh family accused of laundering hundreds of millions of stolen dollars bought luxury apartments in a Manhattan tower part-owned by Mr Trump and embarked on major business ventures with one of the tycoonís partners.

The question is not whether there was Kazakh money in Trump Soho. Itís whether there was any Trump money. But while itís not certain that Donald Trump put any money in, he certainly got plenty out.

Because the Trump Soho was built as a money-laundering engine.

1. The proof of all this...

as Rachel Maddow covered last night, is in the safe of the son-in-law of Kazakhstan's dictator, Nursultan Nazarbayev, who lunched at the White House today.

2. Ever notice how Trump always meet with certain old business partners right before an investigation

Almost as if they are trying to get their stories straight?
