The FBI has received Spanish wiretaps from an investigation of Russian money laundering through NRA that implicates Donald Trump Jr. Then there’s the money that GOP leadership received including the transfers made during the GOP convention.

Chances are more than a few GOP retirements in 2020 come from foreign money, if only because of the millions transferred through the NRA for years.

  • Spanish police have turned over to the FBI wiretaps of conversations involving Alexander Torshin, a prominent Russian banker suspected of money laundering who met with President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., during the 2016 US presidential election.
  • Torshin is closely associated with the National Rifle Association, and he and his longtime assistant attempted to use the organization’s annual convention in 2016 to set up a backdoor meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
  • Neither Trump nor his campaign associates attended the convention, but Torshin and Trump Jr. did attend a separate NRA dinner that same night.
  • When José Grinda, a Spanish prosecutor who spearheads investigations into organized crime, was asked if he was concerned about Torshin’s interactions with Trump Jr. or other American political figures, Grinda replied: “Mr. Trump’s son should be concerned.”

The dominos are starting to fall a little faster. Dim bulbs jr and Russian adoption my arse. Jr and Eric have both admitted that they didn’t need American banks, that they get their rubles from Russian entities, that was some years ago. Ole grumpfy had a condo in Florida he bought for, if I remember right, for 25 million and sold it to a Russian dude for 95 million without any improvements to the property. They have been laundering money for years. The princess is in up to her eyeballs on the property they have in Turkey. This is far… Read more »

Love the new name for Donny Jr. – “dim bulbs Jr.” Wonder if he got to shoot anything today? Maybe one of Santa’s reindeer?

I would love to see the list of GOP politicians the Russians have. Without a doubt the GOP is the party of Putin. Think about this, the GOP go way out of their way to cut Social Security on the people, force us to pay higher taxes and they are double dipping. Excepting their pay from the American taxpayers and monies from the Russians. They shouldn’t care about being reelected, they pockets and bank accounts are filling up quickly. And they have their dimwit cult believing every damn thing they say.

Plus, they are all heavily invested in the defense department cabal of corrupt “suppliers”. Like boeing as an example…

With all this new (?) evidence, what’s being done? Can’t expect the DOJ under Benedict Arnold Barr to investigate, so who will?? We keep hearing about all this corruption, yet Trump continues in office, and the GOP continues in power. Are we already a dictatorship? Now we can understand how terrible a job Mueller did, because he limited the scope of his investigation, cut it short all of a sudden, and was afraid of Trump. Some ex-marine he turned out to be.

I absolutely believe Barr ended the Mueller investigation.

Mueller was cut off by Barr who was instructed by Trump who took his cues from Putin.

As I’ve said many times, Trump and his cohorts have been bought and paid for . And there’s never been any doubt about that . The big question is do the Republicans base care ? If the base doesn’t care , we are lost as a democracy. We can’t survive with 40 percent of our population willing to allow a single party to exist that is totally unlawful . And that’s what the Republicans have become , because they and their families, are very aware of being compromised by the Russians money, In view of what WE ARE AWARE OF… Read more »

Lets don’t dump on Mueller. barr was running the show and is fully donnie’s puppet who is putin’s puppet. The rest are just bend over and drop your pants apostles. Hopefully the bar association starts pulling licenses. We need to get barr out and then we can clean house. Hopefully the bastards (aka traitors) are arrested. Lets start with nunes and jordan – especially jordan.
