Cruz helpfully explains why Sessions..."mis-spoke...

Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions met Russian Ambassador in Washington DC in April 2016

at Trumpís first ever foreign policy speech back in April of 2016 Ė because they invited him there.

Russian Ambassador Kislyak was an invited special guest at Donald Trumpís initial foreign policy speech nearly eleven months ago. During that speech, Trump made a point of spelling out his foreign policy of going soft on Russia for no particular reason.
Before the speech, Donald Trump and Jeff Sessions are known to have met with Kislyak backstage for a reception, though itís not known what might have been discussed between them.

This establishes two key new aspects of the Trump-Russia scandal.

The first new revelation is that Sergey Kislyak went well beyond merely meeting and colluding with Donald Trumpís campaign advisers during the course of the election; he appears to have attended the speech where Trump first carved out his give-Russia-everything position in order to make sure Trump went through with it.
The second new revelation is that this alters the known timeline, as it means Trump and his campaign began meeting with Kislyak well before the Republican National Convention. But it gets stranger.

While itís not known what conversations took place when Trump and Sessions met Sergey Kislyak in April,
Politico is now confirming for certain that Kislyak was in attendance. In addition, an earlier Wall Street Journal report says that Trump greeted Kislyak ďwarmlyĒ at the event, meaning that they met during the reception for certain. And yet Trump has consistently claimed he never had any contact with Russia; he lied. https://www.palmerreport.com/opinion/donald-trump-and-jeff-sessions-met-russian-ambassador-in-washington-dc-in-april-2016/1745/

Well, of COURSE he lied...it is what he does.

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. Weíve 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 Trumpís associate Dmitry Rybolovlev.
The other is Donald Trumpís new Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross
Thatís 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 bankís 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 heís 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)
