Oh sweet goddess. More cement for his grave.

Investigators on the House intelligence committees have obtained access to valuable data from the Treasury Department, a development that will open their doors to investigate possible connections between President Donald Trump's business empire and Russians, CNN has learned.

Investigators received access to the financial data this week, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the development.

Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee told reporters Thursday that his committee also had gotten the Treasury Department data.

The Treasury Department's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network -- or FinCEN -- monitors global financing and frequently investigates money laundering. The agency collects data from banks around the world and is a critical source in identifying how shell companies move money.https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/05/18/politics/financial-data-intelligence-committees-senate-house/index.html

2. Money laundering

I'll be shocked if that isn't where this ends up. Casinos and real estate? Can't get loans inside the US? Does he really have that great of a "brand" to market to people who afford just about anything?

19. That is where it has been for years now, actually.

After his bankruptcies in the '80's, banks would not lend to him.
It was Wilbur Ross who saved his ass, working to get favorable terms in the bankruptcies. But after that, it was Russian business partners who "loaned" him money for hotels and etc.
They gave him a cut of the sales, plus a fee for using his name, and maybe or maybe not some management fees. All that money was washed thru the construction and etc.

Some of the hotels went bankrupt after they were built, some before. Check out the Trump Hotel in Toronto for the most recent. and his business partners in each deal are very shady.
The most recent one is that hotel in Baku, where Trump's business partner is

Notoriously Corrupt' Oligarch Family With Ties to Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps
https://tinyurl.com/m6hn8lu

I found that one to be interesting after reading a story that Ivanka went there once a month "to supervise"
a hotel which was miles from where anyone would use one, roadless, and no progress on it trip after trip. So what was she really doing there?

Edited to add:

1. My excerpt keys are not working for some reason.
2. Wayne Barrett wrote a very detailed book on Trump, and his dad, plus one on Guiliani. Worth the time to read it.

I will be amazed if they find nothing.

4. I have no faith in the House committee. The Senate Intel Committee...they may actually look ...

The Senate Intel Committee may actually review the information (or more accurately, their staffers may).

The House committee, IMO, may well tip Trump off as to what's in the data that may be harmful.

29. Trump isn't going to say, "Of course I paid the DNC hackers, stupid idiots, who else would."

We know damn well the hack is related to Trump, but iIwant the goods, the proof, and I want anyone and everyone who violated the law to steal the presidency to rot in jail.

I hope the Trump money cancer spreads to other GOP entities through Trump.

10. The FinCEN raids may have found hard evidence nailing Trump

But I'm not getting my hopes up even a little. When the s.o.b. is forced to quit or, better still, impeached, tried, and imprisoned -- that's when I'll salute Madame Justice.

But there's a reasonable chance that Trump has kept just a fat enough cushion of "plausible deniability" about any criminal stuff that he'll get away. Nixon, I seem to recall, wasn't actively connected to Watergate and might have stayed in power if he hadn't decided to save his cronies via a criminal cover-up.

Trump, unlike the Trickster, would throw his own mother and children under the bus to save his hide. I can hear him whining about how "it wasn't me, it was Flynn and Bannon, and Priebus, and Miller, and Spicer, and Tiffany . . . ." If there's no obvious smoking gun, no fingerprints, no videos -- or audio tapes! -- he'll walk away free or, worse (much worse) stay in office and rip us all off until 2020.

11. "i don't need your money"

he said. "I'm rich."

But he got donations anyhow. Wonder if they were all from
various deplorables willing to show him how much they care.

22. There wasn't much of anything he said

on the campaign trail that wasn't a blatant lie. People who know Trump well, knew he didn't have the money he claimed. He honestly thought he could go to rallies and say whatever he wanted and no one would call him on it. He is not in Trump World anymore, totally out of his league.

23. That is what they are investigating.

Some of what he is paid comes from the sales of condos and room rents of his hotels an other buildings,
But the actual building of them seem to relay on various partners who are all described as wealthy foreign businesses men.
and Eric Trump has been quoted as saying they relied on endless streams of money from Russian.

Because his finances just boil down to that. He has no real income, it's all dirty money.
