NY Times Trump, "I'm not under investigation. For what? I didn't do anything wrong."


In a wide-ranging interview with The New York Times, the president also accused James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director he fired in May, of trying to leverage a dossier of compromising material to keep his job. Mr. Trump criticized both the acting F.B.I. director who has been filling in since Mr. Comey’s dismissal and the deputy attorney general who recommended it. And he took on Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel now leading the investigation into Russian meddling in last year’s election.

Mr. Trump said Mr. Mueller was running an office rife with conflicts of interest and warned investigators against delving into matters too far afield from Russia. Mr. Trump never said he would order the Justice Department to fire Mr. Mueller, nor would he outline circumstances under which he might do so. But he left open the possibility as he expressed deep grievance over an investigation that has taken a political toll in the six months since he took office.

Asked if Mr. Mueller’s investigation would cross a red line if it expanded to look at his family’s finances beyond any relationship to Russia, Mr. Trump said, “I would say yes.” He would not say what he would do about it. “I think that’s a violation. Look, this is about Russia.”

While the interview touched on an array of issues, including health care, foreign affairs and politics, the investigation dominated the conversation. He said that as far as he knew, he was not under investigation himself, despite reports that Mr. Mueller is looking at whether the president obstructed justice by firing Mr. Comey.

“I don’t think we’re under investigation,” he said. “I’m not under investigation. For what? I didn’t do anything wrong.”


Security analysts Malcolm Nance stated, “This is what happens when a target starts getting buggy.”


One question about the June 2016 Trump Jr. / Veselnitskaya /and so on meet up

Now, the Russians said they had dirt on HRC and her illegal activities but
in the end they did not have such information but they passed a file onto Kushner
who according to some left the room w/it ..... now that file was not dirt on HRC
but documents and data that was hacked from HRC and or the DNC and or John
Podesta so tell me why team Trump is not guilty of receiving stolen property?


The Russia mob now controls the White House and A.G. Jeff Sessions.

Prevezon Holdings used upscale NYC real estate to launder Russia mob money.


Seventeen Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee sent a letter on Wednesday to the Justice Department demanding answers as to why the agency abruptly dismissed a money laundering case earlier this year involving the Kremlin-linked attorney who met with Donald Trump Jr. during last year's campaign.

In May, the Department of Justice (DOJ) settled United States v. Prevezon Holdings Ltd., a $230 million fraud and money laundering case that accused Prevezon Holdings executives of fraudulently obtaining a tax refund from the Russian treasury.

In the case, Prevezon was represented by Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian attorney who met with Trump Jr. during the campaign after promising incriminating information on Hillary Clinton.

Daily Kos: Donald Trump Jr. got documents from Russian government at his 'waste of time' meeting

if these documents were from the hacking of the DNC or HRC wouldn't that be
receiving stolen property?


Donald Trump Jr. has lied about every aspect of the meeting over, and over, and over. Even as more information
has come to light, even with the release of the emails, he has still attempted to characterize the meeting as
unimportant and a waste of time that “went nowhere.” Those statements also appear to be blatant, indefensible
lies. And the information Veselnitskaya handed over, appears to be emails hacked from the DNC.


It was after Veselnitskaya put the documents from the Russian government in their hands, that
Kushner hustled out of the room. Trump Jr. was only disappointed that it didn’t come with footnotes.

Natalia Veselnitskaya, money laundering, NYC real estate, and a must see picture



How did Prevezon Holding supposedly move mob money into the United States? By snapping up expensive condos and other real estate.


The connection between Bharara’s cases and Trump–Russia wasn’t immediately obvious. But Bharara hinted heavily that he had been ousted to close down a investigation of corruption related to Trump.

Until now, the case didn’t seem to be a peek into corruption inside the Trump regime. But with the spotlight now falling on Natalia Veselnitskaya, the actions of Prevezon Holdings Ltd are coming squarely to the center. Prevezon appears to be yet another holding company created expressly for the purpose of turning Russian mob money into American real estate in deals that allow oligarchs to clean their stolen funds and US real estate moguls to pocket fat profits. Deals exactly like those Trump is known to have used to escape bankruptcy.

When Donald Trump Jr. says that Veselnitskaya came to his office to discuss “adoption,” what he means is that she wanted to discuss the Magnitsky Act. And that discussion not only reflects on the US sanctions and blacklisting of Russian officials that resulted from the act, it directly plays into the Russian use of US real estate for money-laundering. Which was something Trump Jr. knew very, very well.

Veselnitskaya's role / Prevezon Holdings


Veselnitskaya's role

Veselnitskaya acted as the lawyer for Denis Katsyv, a key figure in the U.S. indictment. The son of a former Moscow regional transport minister, he was sole owner of Prevezon Holdings, which was named in the U.S. indictment alleging that some proceeds from the tax fraud scheme were laundered through the purchase of New York City real estate.

(Want to guess who owned that real estate? Kushner and or Trump? Just saying.)

The U.S. Attorney's Office in New York announced in May that the case was settled*, subject to court approval, with Prevezon agreeing to pay nearly $6 million. The settlement specifies that it is a "compromise of disputed claims" and that the defendants denied that the allegations "occurred as described." It adds that the complaint doesn't allege that any of the defendants were "responsible, directly or indirectly, for the arrest, detention or death of Sergei Magnitsky.

* This could have been part of the deal from the June 2016 Veselnitskaya, Trump Jr., Kushner, and Manafort meeting. Jeff Sessions might have helped in putting this deal through too.
