This is not about what happened in the elections but what has been happening for decades now between Donald Trump and Russian mobsters.
Craig Unger wrote an article about how long Trump has been connected with the Russians in illicit activities and it has been creating tons of ripples throughout the media.
There are circumstantial evidences that tell you quite a bit about these illicit activities.
“Even without an investigation by congress or a special prosecutor, there is much we already know about the president’s debt to Russia”
“A Review of the public record reveals a clear and disturbing pattern: Trump owes much of his business success, and by extension his presidency, to a flow of highly suspicious money from Russia”
Craig also stated
“Over the past three decades, at least 13 people with known or alleged links to Russian mobsters or oligarchs have owned, lived in and even run criminal activities out of Trump Tower and other Trump properties.”
There is a possibility that the people linked to Russian mob existing in Trump’s properties is much higher because just 13 were discovered and were charged.
“Many used his apartments and casinos to launder untold millions in dirty money.”
“others provided Trump with Lucrative branding deals that required no investment on his part.”
Prosecutor from Reagan days, Kenneth McCalley and Former Assistant US Attorney for Reagan said about Russians and Trump
“They saved his bacon.”
“It’s entirely possible that Trump was never more than a convenient patsy for Russians oligarchs and mobsters, with his casinos and condos providing easy pass-throughs for their illicit riches. At the very least, with his constant need for new infusions of cash and his well-documented troubles with creditors, Trump made an easy ‘mark’ for anyone looking to launder money.”
Keep in mind that Trump has gone bankrupt six times. During one of his bankruptcy suddenly the Russians came and rushed in to buy apartments in the new building and suddenly Trump is out of trouble. Not just that hundreds of people from Russian mob are purchasing his property all of a sudden.
When asked about it, Trump replied “I am an easy mark!”
That is an unlikely answer. One has to be completely clueless in order to ignore this type of detail. Cenk Uygur, Host of the Young Turk Stated.
Donald Trump Jr. back in 2008 Said “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
This was publicly said by Donald Trump Jr. Donald Trump’s other son also said that the golf courses owned by them were also financed by Russians.
“In 2015, the Taj Mahal was fined $10 million (the highest penalty ever levied by the feds against a casino—and admitted to having ‘willfully violated’ anti-money-laundering regulations for years.”
The Russians have been laundering money through Trump’s Taj Mahal.
During the 1990s, millions from the former Soviet Union were invested into Trump’s luxury developments and Atlantic City casino. Even after these investments he still owed 44 billion to 70 banks. $800 million was personally guaranteed.
