Every day seems to produce fresh evidence that Donald Trump is owned by Russia and that his web of corruption has no limits. For that reason, Trump would need a massive distraction to keep his criminal enterprise out of the headlines.
Just consider this: The White House was fully aware that Trump’s delay of military assistance to Ukraine was simply against the law, and that multiple officials engaged in a criminal conspiracy to cover up for Trump and retroactively create an excuse for an inexcusable act.
Yes, Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives for his criminal act. However, somewhere right now, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is probably drafting a statement claiming that the Senate could not possibly consider an impeachment trial “during a time of war” after Trump, without consulting Congress, ordered a strike that killed a top Iranian military commander.
Now, however, a new explosive report published by Forensic News has brought Trump’s corruption back into the news. According to the publication, Trump’s loans from Deutsche Bank were underwritten by a Russian state-owned bank. That news reportedly comes from a whistleblower with access to documents from both Deutsche Bank and Russia’s state-owned VTB Bank. VTB Bank was also the proposed lender on the never-completed Trump Tower Moscow project.
According to the report, the documents originated with the son of a former Deutsche Bank official who committed suicide, which is very much the kind of connection that raises concerns about the authenticity of the information. This only highlights the importance of efforts by Congress to gain access to information on these loans.
If the report is true, this would show that Donald Trump was 100% dependent on the Russian government for his “big comeback.” It would mean that he was completely beholden to Putin for his real estate, for his golf courses, for his candidacy—for everything.
Here’s the source of the report:
