Rachel's issue tonite, Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump, and an Epic Trail of Destruction

'Germany’s Deutsche Bank has a long history of some, frankly, “odd” financial dealings that began when the bank was created from putting together many banks to make one large one. Some of these shenanigans involve Donald Trump’s business loans, but David Enright looks at the bank in its history in his book, “Dark Towers: Deutsche Bank, Donald Trump and an Epic Trail of Destruction”.

Russian oligarchs mix with shady characters from all over the world in money laundering that other banks wouldn’t touch. Why would Deutsche Bank make specious loans? Who was behind the bank’s business decisions and how do people like a US Supreme Court Justice figure into American politics? David Enright’s book is a great read which exposes the dirty side of Deutsche Bank and its dealing.'

The author of Dark Towers, David Enrich, the expert on Deutsch, was on Rachel tonight.

Author Enrich states that this is a great issue, and will be argued tomorrow before SCOTUS. It could, and should, lay bare Deutsch 2 billion dollar loans suspicious ['loans'] to trump. Deutsch knows a lot about trump's dealings. Investigated internally by Deutsch, long paper trail. Deutsch 'seems willing to cooperate, and could deliver troves of trump information over the summer'. Quote, best as I recall, 'this may be the last chance for the trump financial story to be told'.

[As Rachel noted earlier in the show, trump lawyers have argued, that trump could 'shoot someone on 5th Avenue, and cannot be investigated, indicted,' etc. as President].

note: This op was originally posted by empedocles in LBN. I moved it so that it would be visible.

Powell's Books is my online go-to bookseller so I'll see if I can buy it there. Lots of good reviews for it.

1. Finally some progress

There was the Lawrence Odonnell report where he announced that Loans to Trump were cosigned by Russians. Odonnell as i recall said he had not checked out the story enough but didn't retract his reporting.

2. He said "IF TRUE" but he did kind of "retract" and apologized.

Can't wait for the SC ruling tomorrow though... (there is "precedent" in the Nixon case).
