Senator Wants Treasury to Probe Trump Property sold to Russian Oligarch

Democratic Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon is requesting a government review of Donald Trump’s sale of a Palm Beach estate to Russian oligarch Dmitry Rybolovlev, a $95 million transaction that was double what Trump paid for the property only years earlier. He believes it’s possible money laundering.

Wyden on Friday sent a letter to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

“Sen. Wyden’s request included any Suspicious Activity Reports related to the 2008 sale, which more than doubled the price Mr. Trump paid for it just four years earlier,” read a news release.

“He also requested information collected under Treasury’s Geographic Targeting Orders program, which requires title insurance companies to identify the people behind shell companies used for all-cash purchases of luxury real estate. Palm Beach County is one of the geographic areas covered by the targeting orders.”

The concern here is that if they conduct a transaction from which they do not seem to clearly “benefit,” suspicions arise as to the motive: what does the client stand to gain from the transaction if not monetary gain?

Is there evidence to suggest that the client is trying to hide money through this transaction, thus the value of this transaction itself being of secondary importance to them?

The purchase of the luxury estate of the Maison de l’Amitie took place at a time when Rybolovlev was going through divorce proceedings with his wife, reportedly trying to hide as much of his fortune from her as possible.

Donald Trump Tweets “Very Nice Note” from North Korea

The romance between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un appears to be going strong, with the president revealing he received a “very nice note” from the dictator.

Mr Trump tweeted a copy of the letter, dated 6 July, the day that US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo landed in Pyongyang.

“Great progress being made!” he said.

The note from Kim comes after Mr Trump reportedly sent a special gift over for Kim with Mr Pompeo — a copy of Elton John’s “Rocket Man”. The gift was in-joke between the two, in reference to Mr Trump’s “Little Rocket Man” gibe of last year.

Mr Trump supposedly asked Kim in their historic June meeting in Singapore if he knew the song, but Kim didn’t. The president also reportedly wrote a message on the CD and signed it.

In Kim’s letter, he describes the June 12 summit, and the resulting joint statement agreed by both sides, as the “start of a meaningful journey”.

“I firmly believe that the strong will, sincere efforts and unique approach of myself and Your Excellency Mr President aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the US will sure surely come to fruition,” he wrote.

“I deeply appreciate the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr President for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement.”

But the North Korean leader called on his counterpart to take “practical actions” to build trust.

“The invariable trust and confidence in Your Excellency Mr President will be further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions,” he said.

Trump Makes Fool of Himself Already During NATO Breakfast

Trump didn’t waste time making a total and complete fool of himself. During a NATO Breakfast which was supposed to be a lighthearted talk between leaders, he said anything he could that didn’t make sense and embarrassed himself left and right.

Somehow, Trump thinks Germany is being held captive by Russia. How?

“We have to be talking about the billions and billions of dollars that’s being paid to the country that we’re supposed to be protecting you against. Everybody’s talking about it, all over the world. They’ll say, ‘well wait a minute, we’re supposed to be protecting you from Russia.’ But why you pay billions of dollars to Russia for energy? Why are countries in NATO, mainly Germany, having a large percentage of their energy needs paid to Russia, and taken care of by Russia? Now if you look at it, Germany is a captive of Russia.”

Absolutely no one there knew what he was talking about, and even John Kelly, Trump’s own Chief of Staff couldn’t hold back his embarrassment. Visibly displeased by his boss’s strange behavior, he even facepalmed a few times.

Trump Wants to Deport 100,000 Citizens Next Year to Prevent Voting

According to reports, Trump isn’t stopping his anti-immigrant agenda, and it’s going to get worse: he is going to start deporting American Citizens who have been naturalized with a new task force. The claim is that they received their citizenship fraudulently, and should have it revoked. However, as most people pointed out, it’s only targeting Hispanics.

This has been used in the past for German Nazis who hid in the United States, but this time it’s going to be only for Mexicans.

A source within DHS said that they have flagged already “thousands of citizens” and that that orders from the White House are clear: deport hundreds of thousands within the next year in Southern California before the elections in 2020.

They are creating the Office in Southern California, and moving and hiring Spanish speaking agents there. There is no sign whatsoever that this new “task force” is doing anything but targeting Americans of Mexican descent.

In 2015 he said he was going to have stormtroopers, a “deportation force” that would round up 11 million people.

He wasn’t joking.
