THE RUSSIAN INVESTIGATION

The first domino to fall is always the hardest.

 

It’s almost like we’ve been talking about money laundering for about two years.  Because we have.  What gets interesting in this story is that it directly implicates Deutsche Bank management in the cover up, the story mentions that others that are publicly exposed are involved, and that Kushner was paying individuals in Russia.  Not even companies, but people directly.

See why Trump is suing to keep this private?

RUMOR MILL

 

That’s it for the last few days.  Like I’ve said for the last few posts, I’m trying to get back in the rhythm and find a nice balance.  This feels like a good start.  Writing is like working out.  If not done every day, it’s hard to get back in the routine, but if done on a schedule, a day doesn’t feel complete without it.

Keep an eye out on the Deutsche Bank stories and upcoming hearings and rulings from Team Trump fighting subpoenas.  They’re resorting to the same argument in all of them, and it’s a lousy one at that claiming that Congress has no authority to investigate unless there is a legislative purpose.  They’ve used this same argument multiple times and are flailing around wildly hoping that one of the judges takes their side.  If even one of them strikes it down, they don’t have a leg to stand on.  We should hear something on those in the upcoming days.

 

Thank you, and have a good one.
