Deutsche Bank, Trump, Russia, Saudi Arabia. MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!!!

For the person who gave me a heart...

...a couple brass knucklesí worth of truth:

If Donald Trump invested as much time and effort in his presidency as he spends on keeping his financial records secret, his first two years in office might actually be as successful as he claims on Twitter.

Alas, he does not, so the one thing he fights tooth-and-nail over is making sure that any possibly shady business dealings he may have had with the Russians, Saudis, etc., will never see the light of day.

Deutsche Bank plays a crucial role in these transactions, and House Democrats, now armed with subpoena power, have made the German financial institution one of their main targets in trying to get to the bottom of the presidentís opaque dealings.

Knowing that disclosure of the information would not be in his interest, Trump and three of his children went to court this week to prevent Deutsche Bank (and Capital One) from releasing any documents to congressional investigators.

But all this calls to mind a puzzling question: Exactly why are Trumpís dealings with Deutsche Bank presumed to be intimately bound up with Trumpís relationship to Russia and Saudi Arabia?

Long before most people were talking about that, WhoWhatWhy had already explained why Germanyís largest financial institution may be the key to tearing down Trumpís house of cards.

Now that Deutsche Bank is in the news again, you should read our past stories to get the scoop on why the president is so desperate to keep his banking history secret.

Hereís our Deutsche primer:

Deutsche Bank: A Global Bank for Oligarchs ó American and Russian, Part 1 (1/08/2018)
International banking colossus Deutsche Bank has a track record of deploying illegal financial trading, money laundering, and shady offshore tax shelters in the service of the global elite. Should anyone be surprised that Deutsche is on Robert Muellerís Trump-Russia investigation radar?

Deutsche Bank: A Global Bank for Oligarchs ó American and Russian, Part 2 (1/15/2018)
What do President Donald Trump and a number of Russian oligarchs have in common? Answer: Deutsche Bank. We pick up where we left off by examining how Trump first became involved with the international colossus ó a bank catering to clients who understood that sometimes the line between profit and illegality blurs.

Deutsche Bank: A Global Bank for Oligarchs ó American and Russian, Part 3 (2/01/2018)
Not only is President Donald Trump personally tied up with Deutsche Bank to the tune of $300 million, but his son-in-law Jared Kushner has his own history with the global banking giant. Part 3 looks closely at these relationships, and asks just how far President Trumpís Justice Department will be willing to go in probing potential illegality on the part of Deutsche.

Deutsche Bank: Where the Dots of Russiagate Connect (1/24/2018)
Martin Sheil, a retired branch chief of the IRS Criminal Division, discusses his WhoWhatWhy series on Deutsche Bank and how nearly all the main figures involved in Russiagate also have ties to the financial institution.

House GOP Leads Russia ProbeÖ Away From Deutsche Bank (2/27/2018)
House Republicans who are supposed to be investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election say there is no need to look at Deutsche Bank. Here is why they are wrong.

The Devilís Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of Americaís Secret Government

Joseph Palermo
L.A. Progressive, Jan. 12, 2016

In The Devilís Chessboard: Allen Dulles, the CIA, and the Rise of Americaís Secret Government, David Talbot, the journalist who founded Salon.com in 1995 and wrote a great book on the lives of John and Robert Kennedy, Brothers (2007), has produced another page-turner that unearths mountains of new evidence about the seamier side of the rise of the United Statesí Cold War national security state.

Talbot has achieved something rare in our scholarly discourse these days on the origins of the Central Intelligence Agency and the men who were responsible for shaping the Cold War ethos that for decades dominated American foreign policy in the 20th Century. By presenting the contours of Allen Dullesís life and his everlasting imprint on the nature of the CIA in a cogent and highly readable way, Talbot offers us a new and sophisticated analysis of Americaís secret Cold War history.

The Devilís Chessboard is quite simply the best single volume Iíve come across that details the morally bankrupt and cynical rise of an activist intelligence apparatus in this country that was not only capable of intervening clandestinely in the internal affairs of other nations but domestically too.

Talbotís exhaustive research, lively prose, strong moral conviction, and the ability to convey historyís relevance to our contemporary politics make The Devilís Chessboard an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the institutional transformation that took place in this country at a time when rabid anti-communism dominated the thinking of foreign policy elites.

Power pervert.

Mitt Romney did his duty. Where were the other Republicans?

Mitt stood alone among the GOP ó with us. And weíre apart from this guy:

Not that it needs mention, Trump is a traitor.

Hasta Siempre, Kirk!

Genius. Kind. And a Democrat.

From Seven Days in May...

President Jordan Lyman: I know what Scott's attitude on the treaty is, what's yours?

Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: I agree with General Scott, sir. I think we're being played for suckers. I think it's really your business. Yours and the Senate. You did it, and they agreed so, well, I don't see how we in the military can question it. I mean we can question it, but we can't fight it. We shouldn't, anyway.

President Jordan Lyman: Jiggs, isn't it? Isn't that what they call you?

Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: Yes sir.

President Jordan Lyman: So you, ah, you stand by the Constitution, Jiggs?

Colonel Martin "Jiggs" Casey: I never thought of it just like that, Mr. President, but, well, that's what we got and I guess it's worked pretty well so far. I sure don't want to be the one to say we ought to change it.

President Jordan Lyman: Neither do I.


President John F. Kennedy liked the book so much he let Hollywood use the White House to make the film.

If true, hope the whistleblower testifies before the House.

The testimony would be a winning campaign theme.
