Donny Deutsche on MSNBC said Trump's been owned by the Russians since the '90s.

Donny Deutsche is a friend of Cohens and has been speaking w/him throughout Cohen's legal troubles. About Cohen's statements in court today, he said that Cohen feels proud and relieved. He feels better being on the "right" side and talking straight.

But the most interesting thing he said is that in the 1990s, Trump was in serious financial trouble. Then all of a sudden Trump's luxury suites at his properties were filled with rich Russians, and Trump's finances improved. Deutsche said that Trump has been owned by the Russians ever since then.

He also said that all of this that's been going on, all of it, is about the money. It's "just business." That's what all of this is about.

Remember the statement by Deep Throat in the movie All the President's Men? He told Woodward (Robert Redford) to "follow the money." Seems that history is holding true.

And look who Rosenstein appointed as Special Counsel. Mueller, who soon hired an expert on following money around the world: Andrew Weissmann.

Weissman: Headed up the Enron Task Force 2002-2005, leading to prosecutions of 34 people, incl. Chairman Kenneth Lay & CEO Jeff Skilling. He spent 15 years as a federal prosecutor in the eastern district of New York, where he specialized in prosecuting mafia members and bosses from the Colombo, Gambino, and Genovese families. He's an expert at following the money. "Who knows what they will find, but if there is something to be found, he will find it," Emily Pierce, a former DOJ spokeswoman under the Obama administration, told Politico." He's an expert in fraud and foreign bribery.

Mueller added another experit in foreign bribery in August 2018: Greg Andres. Oversaw prosecution of Texas financier who ran an $8 Billion Dollar Ponzi scheme. He has prosecuted organized crime, incl. several members of the Bonanno. He's also worked on white collar crime defense.

Wow. Mueller has others with experience on money laundering, white collar crimes, and even terrorism. Whatever has gone on with the Trump team, these guys are well equipped to find it. And now, with the help coming in January from the House, as backup, it seems like we may get to the bottom of things.

2. Did he? They're SO rich, that I can't imagine that happening.

But I suppose it could, if the "brand" becomes worthless, no new deals come his way, and his businesses start to fail one by one. It could happen. We can hope.

4. Exactly.

Trump has lived rich, whether he is really rich in terms of net assets can be debated.

was involved in covering up any criminal activities by Trump?

6. Mueller's big guy on fraud & foreign bribery & following money expert was in the ED for 15 yrs.

He was a prosecutor. I would assume that if that had happened, he (Weismann) would have heard.

Why the ED? Is that where Trump Organization is headquartered? It's interesting that Weismann had 15 yrs there. He probably knows a thing or two about Trump from his time in the ED.
