This morning the FBI raided the office of a lawyer in Chicago who dealt with Trump's property taxes there. Around the same time German authorities raided Duetche Bank offices as part of a money laundering probe. Duetche Bank is rumoured to be involved with channeling money between the Trump property empire and the Russian crime syndicates looking to move their wealth out of Russia.

 

This comes just days after Trump provided written answers to Mueller regarding interactions between his campaign and Russia. And Mueller moving to throw out Manafort's deal on grounds he was lying to the investigators.

Its harder to "said it wrong" "not what I meant"  etc when its written. Days after? Coincidence? Lining a few ducks in a row? Looks like it

The Washington Post - ‘Individual 1’: Trump emerges as a central subject of Mueller probe

 


In two major developments this week, President Trump has been labeled in the parlance of criminal investigations as a major subject of interest, complete with an opaque legal code name: “Individual 1.”

 

New evidence from two separate fronts of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation casts fresh doubts on Trump’s version of key events involving Russia, signaling potential political and legal peril for the president.

 

Investigators have now publicly cast Trump as a central figure of their probe into whether Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 campaign.

 

Together, the documents show investigators have evidence that Trump was in close contact with his lieutenants as they made outreach to both Russia and WikiLeaks - and that they tried to conceal the extent of their activities.

Vox -  Federal agents mysteriously raided a former Trump attorney’s office

 

Ed Burke represented Trump on property tax issues between 2006 and 2018.

 

 

What we know

 

  • Roughly 15 federal agents showed up at Burke’s office in Chicago’s City Hall around 7:30 am Central time and took over the office by kicking out staffers and papering over the windows, according to reports from the Chicago Sun-Times and Chicago Tribune.
  • The agents left in the early afternoon with “one cardboard file box, a computer and two computer monitors,” according to the Sun-Times.
  • The windows were also papered over at Burke’s office in Chicago’s 14th Ward, according to the Tribune.
  • Burke is not a stranger to being investigated: In his 50 years in public office, he’s survived numerous scandals, including one related to payroll in 2014.
  • Burke’s law firm, Klafter & Burke, began representing Donald Trump in 2006, while the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago was under construction.
  • Burke’s law firm saved Trump $14.1 million in property taxes between 2006 and 2018, according to the Sun-Times.
  • Burke stopped representing Trump in May 2018, citing “irreconcilable differences,” according to the Sun-Times.

What we don’t know

 

  • What the FBI is investigating
  • What role Burke is playing in that investigation
  • What charges, if any, might result from the investigation
  • Whether the raid has anything to do with Burke’s ties to President Trump

Vanity Fair - Deutsche Bank, Trump’s Sugar Daddy, Raided by Police on Suspicion of Money Laundering

 

The German lender, who Trump owes $300 million, is not having a great morning.

 

 

German police raided Deutsche Bank’s offices in Frankfurt in a probe of money laundering against the country’s flagship lender.
 
The public prosecutor’s office in Frankfurt said an evaluation of data from the Panama Papers had triggered suspicion that the bank may have helped customers create offshore companies in tax havens around the world.

 

Two Deutsche Bank staff members are suspected of helping clients set up offshore businesses to launder money gained from criminal deeds.

 

After Democrats flipped the House earlier this month, Representative Maxine Waters, who will head the House Financial Services Committee, said Deutsche’s ties to Donald Trump will be a focus of scrutiny.

 

In particular, Democrats would like to understand why, at a time when no one on Wall Street would touch the real-estate developer with a 100-foot pole, Deutsche lent him hundreds of millions of dollars, which the president still owes the bank ...

Trump has told the Japanese leader that he could make a good deal with China.

 

But..

 

 

One of President Donald Trump's hardest-line advisers on China trade, Peter Navarro, will participate in a Saturday dinner meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to a person familiar with the plans.

 

 

Navarro's presence at the dinner table alongside Trump reflects a change in plans after the White House said Navarro wouldn't join Trump's more moderate advisers like Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin for the trip to Argentina.

 

The author of a book titled "Death by China," Navarro has butted heads with other advisers who have pushed Trump to adopt a more moderate approach toward China. He's pressed for maintaining the tough set of tariffs that have spurred tit-for-tat retaliation from Beijing.

Scroll down to '60 Shades of Greatness'

 

In anticipation of the Trump Era, which will go down in history as “The Beginning of the End of the American Empire”, we need to get acquainted with the ground rules. For the uneducated, whose lips get tired after reading more than 100 words, or evangelicals who can relate only to Biblical pronouncements, please memorize this list:

 

The 10 Commandments:

 

  • America will be great and mostly unpredictable.
  • People will address the President on their knees.
  • Everyone will have a gun and a Bible.
  • Muslims will not be welcome in America.
  • Women will stand silently behind their men.
  • The best people will be uneducated.
  • Mexico will pay for that @#$%^& wall.
  • Women will be fined for having abortions.
  • We will beat China every time, all the time.
  • Arabs will pay for what they did on 7/11.

60 shades of greatness: (the first 10)

 

     

  1. Global warming will be told to chill.
  2. America will install CCTV in all mosques.
  3. The White House will be renamed Trump House.
  4. Dating your daughter will no longer be a misdemeanour.
  5. The KKK will get tax-exempt religious institution status.
  6. The Middle East will play nice or it will glow in the dark.
  7. Bigamy will be legal in Manhattan, Atlantic City and Miami.
  8. The Lincoln Monument will be replaced by the Trump Phallus.
  9. All women under 40 will be eligible for free breast enhancement.
  10. America’s Got Talent will be replaced with America’s Got Stupid.

 

 





Any fool can make money, but it takes a special person to earn the respect of respectable people.
