Pence sent Gov. email, over AOL. and Russia hacked him.

This info has been out there for a bit, but not sure how widely known it is.

Mike Pence regularly used an America Online email address during his time as Governor of Indiana, and he continued this practice after he became Donald Trump’s running mate. The Indy Star tried to access Pence’s emails under the Freedom of Information Act, and was given copies of some of them. According to the newspaper, Pence received one email from an adviser which included “an update from the FBI regarding the arrests of several men on federal terror-related charges.” But it gets much worse.

The Indy Star says it was told by new Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb’s office that some of Mike Pence’s private AOL emails couldn’t be publicly released because they contained information that was “confidential and too sensitive to release to the public.” These withheld emails must have included information that was even more sensitive than the details of an FBI briefing about terrorists, which was released. And then right around the time that Donald Trump was selecting Mike Pence as his running mate last summer, his AOL got hacked.

The Indy Star report simply says that Pence’s emails were hacked in the “summer” of 2016 and doesn’t offer a more firm date; we’ve asked them for a clarification. This is crucial because Pence became Trump’s running mate during the summer. Considering the larger circumstances of political emails having been hacked by Russia in this election, the most plausible explanation would be that Russia hacked Pence’s emails when he was coming into focus as the running mate, to see if they could find anything to compromise him on.

It’s also crucial to point out that Pence’s hacked emails were never released. This fits with the prevailing theory that Russia hacked the Democrats and released their emails to harm Hillary Clinton, but hacked the Republicans and held onto their emails as blackmail material in case they won. Startlingly, the Indy Star says that after Pence’s AOL emails got hacked, he simply began conducting government business on a second AOL email account.

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

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

at Trump’s first ever foreign policy speech back in April of 2016 – because they invited him there.

Russian Ambassador Kislyak was an invited special guest at Donald Trump’s 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 it’s 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 Trump’s 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 it’s 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 “warmly” 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. We’ve 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 Trump’s associate Dmitry Rybolovlev.
The other is Donald Trump’s new Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross
That’s 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 bank’s 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 he’s away from the White House.

First the letter, and below it the source from Dworkin on Twitter, who has been doing a lot of digging.
