    Bannon claims Money Landering will be the crime found by Mueller

    I can't stand Bannon and I don't trust him but this article is noteworthy.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...-michael-wolff

    “You realise where this is going,” he is quoted as saying. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to ****ing Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner … It’s as plain as a hair on your face.”
    Bannon continues: “It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner ****. The Kushner **** is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me.”
    Trump is not spared. Wolff writes that Thomas Barrack Jr, a billionaire who is one of the president’s oldest associates, allegedly told a friend: “He’s not only crazy, he’s stupid.”
    “People of the same trade seldom meet together, even for merriment and diversion, but the conversation ends in a conspiracy against the public, or in some contrivance to raise prices.”

    That is the crime that I thought would be the motivation for much of it. Greed. Deutche Bank has been fined 10 billion dollars for russian money laundering.

    It takes years thought to build up a case that someone is laundering money for a criminal source, not just a few months.

    Manafort for example was examined by the FBI for two years before the hammer dropped on him, so don't expect Trump or his organization to be cited for this anytime soon.

    Kushner on the other hand might be a different story because the financing for his property in NY was via Deutsche bank, which might interest prosecutors for the coincidence involving the Russian oligarch that sold him the property in the first place, and how it all ties in with the Trump Tower meeting.

    Many have suspected it will be the Trump money ties with Russia going back many years that explain his collusion with them and his willingness to get into bed with them hoping to be blessed by Putin the same way Russian oligarchs have been blessed with fortune as he loots the nation.

    I too do not trust Bannon and everybody knows he is only doing this to further his own agenda which is to purge Junior and Kirschner from the Oval Office and replace them with himself. Bannon wants to be the power behind the throne ala another famous Russian - Grigori Rasputin. He should remember how Rasputin ended up.

    He also called the Trump Tower meeting with the Russians ‘treasonous and unpatriotic’, and something that should have been immediately brought to the FBI.

    That’s gonna be a problem for Trump. Bannon looks happy to flip.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    On the other hand, that information he points out is entirely independent of him.. and was my personal opinion to a great deal entirely before he said anything. It's not like Bannon is showing any great insight, or giving information that isn't there. The fact he said it shows he is showing his displeasure about rightfully getting kicked out of the white house, and his shows his desire to create chaos. However, what he says is in line with the facts. Bannion's motivation for pointing it out is to sow discord. The information is reasonable accurate.

    Would you think he knows something?

    I wonder if he has already spoken to Mueller? I can hear it now.... "I will give you both Junior and Kushner on a silver platter but I say nothing against the Don." And Mueller tells him to start singing any tune he cares to croon.

    So add Bannon to the list of people the Trump administration and their propaganda-arm Fox news will have to demonize.
    Bannon was never trustworthy anyway, he is just made he got fired, etc., all in a day's denial for the Trump apologists.

    "[Trump] is not only crazy, he's stupid."

    Yes, thank you for finally agreeing.
