Some burning questions about the Trump Tower meeting transcripts

The fact that Manafort's notes contain a reference to Cyprus is especially interesting in light of a document filed just this week in one of the Federal cases against him. Mueller got a judge to order a suspension of the statute of limitations on a possible FBAR violation because he was having to get documents from a foreign nation -- Cyprus.

It is also interesting that Manafort's notes referenced "offshore" and "133m shares" of "companies." And, of course, there's the cryptic reference to the RNC.

2.) What is the meaning of former campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s cryptic notes? Even though Trump Jr. insisted that nothing nefarious occurred during the Trump Tower meeting, contemporaneous notes taken at the time by Manafort suggest something was, in fact, in play.

While the notes are very cryptic, they do contain some intriguing phrases that need to be explained to understand the true nature of the meeting.

Among other things, Manafort’s notes reference “Offshore – Cyprus” followed by “133 million shares” of undisclosed “companies.”

Cyprus has become notorious in recent years as a haven for turning a blind eye to money laundering operations conducted on its soil by Russian oligarchs — why was Manafort writing about it in a meeting that was supposedly about Russian adoption policies?

Elsewhere in the notes, Manafort writes the phrase, “Value in Cypress as inter,” followed by the word “illici,” followed by the phrase “Active sponsors of RNC.”
