Friday, July 13, 2018

In particular, the report zeroes in on actions taken by Alex Shnaider, the Russian-Canadian billionaire who served as Trump's business partner in the construction of Trump International Hotel and Tower Toronto.

"Tom Keatinge, a former JPMorgan banker who now specializes in financial crime at London's Royal United Services Institute, tells the Financial Times that, if the initial $100 million payment is found to be a bribe, then "you could argue that the Trump Organization is receiving the proceeds of crime and therefore is being used as a money-laundering opportunity."

Yes, do pay close attention to that last paragraph posted above and realize too, "Financial Times" is definitely not a left wing publication by any stretch of the imagination. It is actually a publication that reports to the wealthy investor class.

What about it?

That Trump has been laundering money for the Russians has been open speculation for about 8 months now.

It hardly takes a "lefty" site to acknowledge that.

"Trump Organization is receiving the proceeds of crime and therefore is being used as a money-laundering opportunity."

Putin has the proof and is holding it over Donny Dealmaker.

Using that ridiculously overbroad definition for money-laundering: 'receiving the proceeds of crime and therefore is being used as a money-laundering opportunity' means that every business and individual who received money from this Russian-Canadian is as guilty. Starbucks better be prepared to face the repercussions for their money-laundering for selling this guy a cuppa joe. Hell..I hope this guy didn't pay taxes on the purchase or Canada itself is going to have to face some hard questions about why they are money-laundering with Russia.

If it's a $100 million cuppa joe then yeah, they should brace for repercussions...

You guys are truly getting pathetic in the extent to which you'll cover your ears and scream "lalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala".

It was a $4million licensing fee to use the name Trump on the facility.
People are truly getting pathetic in the extent to which they'll accept any ridiculous statements as long as they are derogatory of Trump.

So what's wrong with that? Isn't that exactly what Trump does? He repeats any nonsense he hears on Fox News as long as it is derogatory to Democrats and Liberals.

Trump is making the rules of this game. We just have to play along with this idiot and hope we can survive until the adults can be in charge again.
