Our long-awaited "Mueller Time" has filled the punditocracy with tales of collusion and delusion. But most have missed the two-word trap door through which Donald Trump is likeliest to fall.

Yes, the Trumputins did steal 2016.

Collusion, technically, is not a crime. Treason is. So is conspiracy. But they may be hard to prove.

- Advertisement -

Yes, the Don Jr.-Eric-Ivanka-Kushner-Cohen-Manafort cabal has lied to Congress, the courts, and the people. More will arise as the Trump consiglieri flee the sinking ship.

But as predicted by Steve Bannon, here are the two words most likely to bring Trump down: MONEY LAUNDERING.

To source this for yourself, start with David Cay Johnston's It's Even Worse than You Think and Craig Unger's House of Putin House of Trump.

- Advertisement -

These Rosetta Stones let us view the evolution of Trump's most obvious illegalities:

-- The Donald was born into organized crime.
-- His grandfather (a German immigrant) ran a mobbed-up brothel in California.
-- His father, a mobbed-up Queens slumlord, was a KKK-supporting, federally-prosecuted racist intimately linked to at least two of the city's infamous Five Families.
-- From age six, Donald helped launder dad's money with a six-figure income that did not come from his youthful paper route.
-- Infamous for stiffing those who backed and worked for him, Donald plunged into billions of debt and at least four bankruptcies.
-- But after the Soviet Union fell, a new mobster class of Russian billionaires needed to launder cash into the U.S.
-- Many favored Germany's Deutsche Bank, which became the only financial institution willing to loan Trump money.
-- As a shady real estate developer who took cash and asked few questions, The Donald became a Russo-American bag man.
-- Trump obliged his ex-Soviet saviors with at least 1,300 real estate transactions allowing them to slip countless rubles into the American banking system.
-- At the peak sits Vladimir "don" Putin, who took power at the moment of Y2K, to whom nearly all the new Russian billionaires owe fealty, and whose files (forget about that "pee tape") undoubtedly contain more than enough documentation to sink the entire Trump apparatus in a single afternoon.
-- Trump Tower on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue has became largely a dormitory for Putin's billionaire cohorts.
-- Trump and his family have used the White House as a personal laundromat, leveraging licenses, a bailout for Kushner's disastrous investments in 666 Fifth Avenue, and much more.
-- Much of this has happened in New York, where prosecutions will be beyond the reach of White House pardons.
-- Deutsche Bank, which has paid more than $600 million in fines related to money laundering, has just been freshly raided.

There is much, much more. (For a riveting run-down of how the legalities might shake out, a recent show at Progressive Radio Network offers some critical insight).

But the methodical Mueller clearly has Trump's tax returns. The Donald's net worth may well be negligible, all in rubles, defined by mobster illegalities dating back at least three decades, many of them prosecutable in Manhattan, where his enemies are legion.

Will Trump's fake House of Cards then collapse, and his presidency with it?

The real bottom line to the Trump trifecta of collusion, mass perjury, and fiscal felony will not require likely impeachment by a Democratic House or unlikely removal by a GOP Senate.

It could come instead with Trump desperately trying to negotiate pardons for his children ... facing post-presidency jail time for the money-laundering buried in those Deutsche Bank files and the testimony of so many desperate consiglieri trying to avoid prison ... with the almost certain collapse of his phony financial empire ... and with the fury of a media and public to whom he's been lying nonstop with felonious contempt dating at least from the 1980s.

At some point, the stability-loving corporations that really run this world just might say (as with Dick Nixon):

"ENOUGH!" He got us our tax break and gutted environmental regulation ... now he needs to leave."

Yes, #TwoMoreWords - "Emoluments Headache". This president has refused to divest from his private-sector enterprises which means he continues to personally profit from businesses that receive payments from foreign governments.

"9 IMPEACHABLE OFFENSES" has over 6 million signatures.

Pretty desperate stuff huh. Mueller can't afford to reach a conclusion. That is all that is protecting dozens of democrat supporters from Spygate.
The deliberate distortion of Mueller's chances of finding anything have long been laughed at by most people on all sides.

The corporations that really run the show will be here whether or not Trump goes. Ergo Trump is not the problem, only the mask. Many Russians also think Putin is too easy on the oligarchs. But it is Trump that continues to foment war with Russia. He just created a possible replay of the Gulf of Tonkin using Poroshenko against Russia. And this analysis leaves out his toxic relations with Israel and Saudi Arabia. Wasserman has drunk the same anti Russia koolaid the pseudo Left has been imbibing for decades.

This "investigation" started on 2 words - "Russian meddling".

So far, the only 2 words that might apply are "money laundering".

Something that doesn't need a "special investigation" process. Something that fits right in with the current batch of politicians and intelligence agents anyway.

A variety of 2-word phrases come to mind, such as, "nothing surprising", "tax wastage", and "government theater".

Pathetic parallels.

Most politicians don't launder money.

Just because this president has all those crimes doesn't deny Russian meddling.

How about just one hyphenated word: ho-hum? They're all the same. Picking on Trump is like picking on the kidnapped Belarusian in the vinyl hot pants on the corner of 9th and 34th while overlooking the finance major at the Four Seasons Bar with the CC swiper in her purse. Calling one a prostitute and not the other is a supreme hypocrisy.

After their first night in empire's whitewashed brothel, presidents all service the largest criminal organization on earth where they will pander to mass executions, torture, murder, drug dealing, currency manipulation and extortion. Some do it with white gloves and some with raw hands. Some like Obama are more like the coed escort and others like Trump, the desperate hooker. But whatever you call them, they're all empire's sluts.

We saw how ridiculous it was to focus on one man back in the 60s when we thought eliminating LBJ would stop the genocide in Vietnam, only to see the baton passed to the other relay partner in the duopoly. Yet decades lateer, we're still doing it. Focusing on Trump is an energy suck. We should instead be keeping our eyes on the prize: ending the reign of MIC and the war economy.

Exactly right-on, Harvey.

If you forget Russiagate (which so many "progressives" here are desperate to do) and even forget obstruction of justice (dozens of blatant attempts) there is still an entire life of continuous family crime, money laundering, fraud, cheating, swindling, lying and more lying. I've read the books you referenced, which I wish others would.

It's true the Trump crime family are relative street thugs and pikers compared to the Bush crime aristocrats but they knew the importance of hiding their crimes and keeping the illusion of the Constitution and hope alive.

Baby Nero just wants to burn it all down leaving him Fascist God-King, liar-at-all-times, worship me or I'll destroy you, and that is the end of America and hope.

"[T]he Bush crime aristocrats ... knew the importance of hiding their crimes and keeping the illusion of the Constitution and hope alive." Hope? The only hope is that you aren't suggesting that keeping an illusion alive by hiding crimes is a virtue! THAT right there is THE reason why no progress has been made in my lifetime in ending our international reign of terror.

I have no idea who you are referring to or what you are talking about... except that it can't be about the constitution which has been violated on numerous spearate occasions by every single president since WWII. In fact, because he hasn't invaded any new countires or been involved in overthrowing any existing ones, Trump may be less culpable than many of his bastard predecessors.

The Sun King was Louis XIV, famous for saying "I AM the State," an identity shared by Trump, who refers to his highness in the third person and equates himself with "the country." Classic megalomania.

The Constitution has been under attack all our lives, most forcefully by the neocons who engineered 9/11, doing away with habeas corpus and allowing unreasonable search and seizure among others, ushering in the surveillance police state we've lived under ever since. Should we then just give up, dump the Constitution and go full tyranny?

Louis XIV also loved starting wars and Baby Nero is no different, but it has to be HIS war not somebody else's and he's doing all he can to start one with Iran and get rid of Maduro in Venezuela, where the CIA has been waging economic war for years to bankrupt the country because they won't give up their oil.

Again, Dana, they all do it. As I've suggested -- some in hot pants, some in Chanel. They are model/spokepersons for exceptionalism. Apparently a little sweet talk with good manners and you're reaching for the checkbook.

Your bit about Venezuela is exactly what I am getting at. At this point in his first term, Obama had kidnapped the president of Ecuador, increased the economic subversion against Hugo Chavez, backed School of the Americas alumnus Otto Molina in Guatemala and the impeachment of Lugo in Paraguay, turned the Aguan River valley in Honduras from a utopian agrarian model to a 19th C colonial plantation and had begun the annhilation of Libya. Trump has "merely" carried on Obama's fealty to the Saudis, but he's initiated no new wars - just saber rattling over Iran - and his murder rate is far less impressive than that of his predecessor. You can ramble on all day about Trump's obnoxious personality and draw contrived quodlibet analogies to Euro kings, but I'll take the side of the families living in the rubble of their former bombed out homes and use body counts as my measuring stick.

Yes, Dana obviously I take their side and even make periodic contributions to MSF. And for the 4th time, for the past 73 years, all presidents are empire's sluts. (Kennedy tried to quit and the pimps made him pay). And in case you're having trouble connecting dots that includes Trump, the hooker in hot pants.

Now in terms of Yemen, Trump is just overseeing phase three in the bait and switch instigated by Obama (whom you might have voted for). First phase get hatchetman Clinton to create the necessary chaos with clandestine aid to the Houthis to get the ball rolling for MIC - whose mantra is "the stronger the opposition, the stronger the profit." Second phase: go all in with the Saudi royal family to which HRC is practically an honorary member. Third phase belongs to dealmaker Trump who consummated the weapon deals as MIC backed up the Brink trucks to carrry off the profits.


Thicker than thieves...the whole conniving bunch. Because one of them believes he is an emperor is as ridiculous as your allusion to Louis XIV. One literally WAS the state as were his 13 predecessors, the other is being hunted BY the state and has only the support of rural desparates who would rather live in a gulag and eat their fingers than vote for an elitist like Clinton.

Your "who engineered 9/11" - "Overwhelming evidence exists that the collapses of the Twin Towers and Building 7 were instances of controlled demolition. But al-Qaeda operatives could not have obtained the needed access to the buildings to plant the explosives and would not have ensured that the buildings come straight down. The controlled demolition, therefore, had to be the work of insiders". #PrePlantedExplosives #GrandJuryPetition (on Page 12) #USAttorney #AskDOJ.

AS LONG AS WE HAVE AN EMPIRE we'll have low-life thugs like trump in power. nixon was also related to the mob, tho not at birth. the root of the russia collusion is that the oligarchs know with trump they have someone they own & can manipulate at will. trump is a small-time bag man, dumb as a hammer, easily used. no, we're not happy about pence, but this guy has got to go.

I agree that money laundering seems to be Trump's Achilles Heel. If there is evidence, it will be found. It's unambiguously criminal in its own right, but to have a President who is financially compromised to any foreign power is so thoroughly unacceptable, I am stunned by the flimsy rationales and diversions used to defend him.

It's like a national death wish. Capitalism has failed. The Capitalists know it, and rather than see some other system succeed, they would rather see everything destroyed because they see it as inevitable. I am just speculating here, but it seems as if they are so invested in the system that has 'righteously bestowed such inordinate power on them' that any other system must be wrong.

These fools may destroy us all.

No one can argue Trump is literally a "useful idiot".

But the Russian-Mueller thing is just theater, and nothing more. ("Useful distraction".)

So, he's "dumb as a bag of hammers", yet he's "Putin's boss". Makes sense.

Right now, all we've got is propaganda, and writers that are perfectly fine parroting it without a shred of proper journalistic evidence.

[So the troll is back, I see.]

Makes no difference which way it's being said. The Russia connection is missing.

As usual, you miss the important details while you're looking for some meaningless error to troll about.

This is a ridiculous article. Trump's ties to the mob, the Russian mob, and worldwide money laundering were well known when he was a candidate. The Trump towers are brand items like "Payday Loans,' but the business is dealing with CIA and other mob money. There was plenty of evidence provided. If Mueller were really doing anything but providing a soap opera for big bucks, he would have gone to money laundering years ago. The Russia bs, besides for the part about dealing with the Russian mob, is fantasy for the Clinton type neoliberals who desire war with Russia to push US world hegemony. The Mueller investigation is purely political theater for "progressive" fools. This is entertainment, not news. Nothing will come of it unless if fits in some future script where the Donald is de-throned accompanied by the biggest golden parachute ever seen.

You can go on all you want with commonly-accepted labels, but you're still without proper journalistic evidence Russia is responsible for anything here.

The point is that for progressives, Russiagate has been a disaster for all that is progressive. There is real harm in going after Trump based on legal fantasies. Russiagate incites mob mentality to get progressives barking at cleverly projected shadows while their dog bowl is being raided.

Exactly, Chuck.

But, you'll never straighten out these writers that choose gossip over substance. They don't just bark at those shadows - they're absolutely compelled to chase the moving hubcaps as well.

Chuck. I respect you greatly.

And, of course, DA represents the Devil.

There was Russian interference and why not? Exploring what happened is just trying to find what happened. Once it is reported we can discuss.

There can never be harm from the truth.

Chuck, please. Didn't a Russian lawyer come to negotiate "children adoption" in Trump tower? Let us focus.
