Even Forbes magazine thinks Paradise Papers spell trouble for Trump associates

Ties between several Trump Administration key figures, and Russia, figure prominently in the newly disclosed “Paradise Papers” about the workings of secret offshore tax havens. (The papers were leaked from Appleby, one of the world's largest offshore law firms.) These warrant immediate Congressional hearings.

First, the papers have revelations about a connection between a Kremlin-connected company and Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser. These ties go through Yuri Milner, a Russian tech mogul – a Russian citizen – who lives in Silicon Valley. Milner invested $850,000 in Cadre, a real estate firm co-founded by Kushner.

1. When people hide money they are doing it for a reason.

And it's not to save paying taxes. Even the highest tax rates aren't that bad to the uber wealthy with all of their exemptions. The money is hidden in "tax havans" because it's being used for political purposes.

2. Jared Kushner?....It looks like Jared is in serious trouble..

It seems to be that way.. I suspect there will be a lot more news about "Jared Kushner" Much of it will not be pretty. And I hope that that news will show that he belongs in "The I Am Not A Crook Club"

It seems that members of that club, are indeed crooks.
