All The Pieces Matter: Moscow Tower Thread – Puzzle Piece #11-1 (Via Jason Leopold/Anthony Cormier for Buzzfeed)

I have said for the last two years that at least 1 of The IDIOT’s spawn would be Indicted and go to prison. The only two who wouldn’t be implicated in this Shit Show are Tiffany & Baron.

It’s now my belief, based on at least 2 sources, that multiple sealed Indictments are pending for The Trump Organization (More on that later); as well as, The IDIOT, Don Jr., Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump.

I am also now certain The New York Attorney General, Letitia James, will be charging Eric Trump with charges stemming from The Trump Foundation.

Reversing my previous stance, I’m now confident that Ivanka will also be charged. The most likely outcome is she will be the used as a pawn to land The IDIOT. And I can’t foresee a scenario where he allows her to go to prison.

Although, this might not be necessary, since I now believe The Trump Organization will also face multiple Indictments. And by extension, this implicates The IDIOT as he is defacto head of The Trump Organization

We now know that the tapes and testimony Michael Cohen provided are beyond damaging. He has The IDIOT, Ivanka, Don Jr., Eric and Jared dead to rights in multiple recordings, I’m told.

A few months back, Ivanka was dirtied up with the strategic leak of the Email Server Story. This Moscow Tower Deal was partly her baby and has her fingerprints all over it. Cohen’s testimony indicates that she, Don Jr. and Eric were receiving daily briefings.

To be clear – the testimony of Felix Sater and Michael Cohen specifically implicate The IDIOT, Kushner, Don Jr., Ivanka and Eric.

None of them have been called to testify before the Grand Jury. All of them, per my sources, are Targets of various Investigations.

And because Ivanka, Don Jr. and Jared testified before Congress, I’m fairly certain all 3 will be charged with lying to Congress, as one of the charges.

The influx of Russian money did more than save Trump’s business from ruin—it set the stage for the next phase of his career.

By 2004, to the outside world, it appeared that Trump was back on top after his failures in Atlantic City. That January, flush with the appearance of success, Trump launched his newly burnished brand into another medium.

“My name’s Donald Trump,” he declared in his opening narration for The Apprentice, “the largest real estate developer in New York. I own buildings all over the place. Model agencies. The Miss Universe pageant. Jetliners, golf courses, casinos, and private resorts like Mar-a-Lago, one of the most spectacular estates anywhere in the world.”

But it wouldn’t be Trump without a better story than that.

All The Pieces Matter: Puzzle Piece: 2.4 – Eduard Nektalov (The Russian Laundromat Series)

Throughout the 1990s, untold millions from the former Soviet Union flowed into Trump’s luxury developments and Atlantic City casinos. But all the money wasn’t enough to save Trump from his own failings as a businessman. He owed $4 billion to more than 70 banks, with a mind-boggling $800 million of it personally guaranteed. He spent much of the decade mired in litigation, filing for multiple bankruptcies and scrambling to survive. For most developers, the situation would have spelled financial ruin. But fortunately for Trump, his own economic crisis coincided with one in Russia.

In 1998, Russia defaulted on $40 billion in debt, causing the ruble to plummet and Russian banks to close. The ensuing financial panic sent the country’s oligarchs and mobsters scrambling to find a safe place to put their money.

That October, just two months after the Russian economy went into a tailspin, Trump broke ground on his biggest project yet.

All The Pieces Matter: Puzzle Piece: #2.3 – Vyachelsav Ivankov (The Russian Laundromat Series)

In 1991, the FBI says, Mogilevich paid a Russian judge to spring a fellow mob boss, Vyachelsav Kirillovich Ivankov, from a Siberian gulag.

If Mogilevich was the brains, Ivankov was the enforcer—a vor v zakone, or “made man,” infamous for torturing his victims and boasting about the murders he had arranged. Sprung by Mogilevich, Ivankov made the most of his freedom. In 1992, a year after he was released from prison, he headed to New York on an illegal business visa and proceeded to set up shop in Brighton Beach.

Trump made his first trip to Russia in 1987, only a few years before the collapse of the Soviet Union. Invited by Soviet Ambassador Yuri Dubinin, Trump was flown to Moscow and Leningrad—all expenses paid—to talk business with high-ups in the Soviet command. In The Art of the Deal, Trump recounted the lunch meeting with Dubinin that led to the trip. “One thing led to another,” he wrote, “and now I’m talking about building a large luxury hotel, across the street from the Kremlin, in partnership with the Soviet government.”

Over the years, Trump and his sons would try and fail five times to build a new Trump Tower in Moscow. But for Trump, what mattered most were the lucrative connections he had begun to make with the Kremlin—and with the wealthy Russians who would buy so many of his properties in the years to come. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets,” Donald Trump Jr. boasted at a real estate conference in 2008. “We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

All The Pieces Matter: Puzzle Piece: #2.1 – David Bogatin (The Russian Laundromat Series)

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. 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. Many used his apartments and casinos to launder untold millions in dirty money. Some ran a worldwide high-stakes gambling ring out of Trump Tower—in a unit directly below one owned by Trump. Others provided Trump with lucrative branding deals that required no investment on his part. Taken together, the flow of money from Russia provided Trump with a crucial infusion of financing that helped rescue his empire from ruin, burnish his image, and launch his career in television and politics.
