Good Day World!
There's been so much written about Trump's illegal activities that I'm afraid people are just becoming numb to them.
There was a story by Reuters last week that didn't get much press here in the U.S. They reported (in great detail) how 19.5% of Rosneft, Russia's state oil company, has been sold to parties unknown.
How Russia Sold It's Oil Jewel: Without Saying Who Bought It
This was done, according to Reuters, through a dizzying array of shell companies, so that the most that can be said with certainty now is that the money "paying" for it was originally loaned out to the shell layers by VTB (Russia's official bank), even though it's highly unclear who, if anyone, would be paying that loan back; and the recipients have been traced as far as some Cayman Islands shell companies.
Here's the kicker...
Do you remember the much-maligned Steele Dossier, the one with the golden showers in it?
It also included a statement that Putin had offered Trump 19% of Rosneft if he became president and removed sanctions.
It get's better, or worse, depending on how you look at it:
The dossier said this in July, and the sale didn't happen until early December. And 19.5% sounds an awful lot like a "19% plus a brokerage commission."
When the free press manages to get a break from Chump's daily antics I sure would like to see this story explored further.
I have a hunch that dossier is packed with facts Dump and his cronies don't want revealed, and that's another reason why he's calling out the media and claiming the stories about him are all fake.
Perhaps we'll find out someday.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
