      Now that the ugly, but sexy Russian truth comes leaking out, there has to be a concern that the poor innocent dupe, Donald J Trump was just the unwitting pawn in a game well over his head. It would not be the first time that Trump has gone on an adventure with other people's money, and said "Hey, not my fault" when things went South - he's played that role over and over again.




      Now being 100s of millions in debt to a bunch of foreign banks is bad enough, especially when his biggest creditor has been slow rolling the negotiations with the current administration in what might be the hope to avoid the YUGE fine* that has been imposed on them when the Trump #OliFascists take over. So his conflict of interests are limited, by his ability to withstand economic blackmail. I mean it isn't like he hasn't screwed every creditor he's ever had over before.


      *(Deutsche Bank AG’s shares and its riskiest bonds dropped the most since the Brexit vote after the lender said the U.S. Justice Department is seeking $14 billion to settle a probe tied to mortgage-backed securities, more money than the bank is willing to pay. - Bloomberg 15 September 2016)


      So he has nothing to be concerned about. Except for how he got elected in the first place.


      Or who did. Steve Bannon, Campaign Manager and Rebekah Mercer's choice for Chief White House Adviser, is a big fan of Vladimir Putin; Carter Page, a Trump campaign consultant; and Paul Manafort, the former Campaign Manager and money man whose relationship with a collection of Russian and Ukrainian Oligarchs has been the subject of a series of investigations by the Intelligence community and the FBI.


      Bannon: "You know, Putin’s been quite an interesting character. He’s also very, very, very intelligent. I can see this in the United States where he’s playing very strongly to social conservatives about his message about more traditional values." - Vatican Speech 2014 to far right conservatives.



      Carter Page: In September, Yahoo News reported that US intelligence agencies were probing the contacts between Russian officials and Carter Page, who was identified by the Trump campaign as one of its foreign policy advisers.

      (As of 11 jan 2017, the Washington Post reported in an interview with Page that the Global Energy Capital LLC Managing Partner appears to be the latest casualty as he departs the Trump Transition Team as a result of the allegations).


      Manafort: "The New York Times reported in November that the FBI was looking at Manafort's business ties to Ukrainians who were Putin allies. The newspaper noted, "In classified sessions in August and September, intelligence officials also briefed congressional leaders on the possibility of financial ties between Russians and people connected to Mr. Trump." - MJ 10 JAN 2017


      Michael Cohen: "According to the unnamed author of the report, there were ongoing communications between intermediaries for the Russian government and representatives of the Trump campaign, including Cohen, during the election" - Yahoo News 11 Jan 2017


      So I have a question: If Cohen is the negotiator, Page the contact, and Manafort the deal maker, who was the recipient of the information provided by the Putin directed Russian espionage efforts? Bannon would be the first person I would be interrogating. In fact I would haul each and every one of the top staff in for some time under the lamp.



      I would also be asking to hold all their passports until the investigation was concluded.


      Just like the old Mad Magazine saying, "When the going gets tough, the tough get going...to Mexico" though in Bannon's case, the former head honcho at Breitbart would probably would feel right at home in a nice St Petersburg flat.

          What is really scary about this bunch, the more we learn; the more we see something that is much worse than any of us thought. There is nothing innocent about Dump he is too much of a control freak for all this to be happening without his blessing.

                  I understand Bannon was involved in some pretty shady stuff in Shanghai back in the days when he was paying Chinese kids to mine gold on Warcraft. Chinese intelligence probably has some videos - maybe that is why Trump backed down on the one China policy.
