Investigation Shows How Trump Laundered Money for Kazakhstan Oligarch

Investigative reporting by McClatchy and a Dutch television program, Zembla, have uncovered the details of how Donald Trump helped an oligarch from Kazakhstan launder money in the U.S. The route is very complicated, so it can only be sketched here.

The oligarch in question, Mukhtar Ablyazov, stole billions of dollars from Bank TuranAlem, which he used to run.

He was convicted for this last year. Ablyazov's son-in-law, Ilyas Khrapunov, ran a network of shell companies that were part of the operation for hiding money. Khrapunov used a now-shuttered bank in Tanzania, named FBME, to move the money around. Part of the money was used by Khrapunov's relatives to purchase condos in Donald Trump's Trump SoHo project for millions of dollars.

There is much more to the story, but the main point is that there is now a detailed trail of stolen money in Kazakhstan that ended up in Trump SoHo in New York.

It is not clear at this point that Donald Trump knew about the scheme. He certainly might have, particularly since his close friend and adviser, Felix Sater, helped facilitate the arrangement. If Trump was ignorant, it is because he chose to look the other way. When a wealthy Russian or Kazakh invests millions in cash into condos that go unoccupied, it should raise all kinds of red flags. N
aturally, if a group of (foreign) reporters with no subpoena powers and no singing canaries can figure all of this out, Special Counsel Robert Mueller certainly can as well, particularly since he's got several money laundering experts on his team. So, if the President does have any culpability here, he should be getting nervous right about now. (V & Z)

2. Incredible how Lefty paints him as an ignorant boor one minute,

then is the mastermind behind some extremely complicated multi-national money laundering scheme the next.

How refreshing would it be if the DI liberal was just consistent for one day?

11. They did the same thing with Dubya, an "idiot" one day, an "evil genius" next day, sometimes both..

... simultaneously, as they scream and foam entertainingly...

6. 1) this is a BLOG, not a news source. Sorry Graham, Trix are for kids.

2) if true, Mueller would have leaked this long ago. showing up now on a blog just means some Lefty made this up.
3) if you are quoting this then it is false. You record for accuracy leaves something to be desired.

10. Mueller hasn't leaked anything at all.

and if one goes to the link, there are links to other sources in it.

but then drudge and bannon are always 100% fake or misleading, and both operate by themselves in their
basements don't they?

8. So what you are saying is:

Robert Mueller with his corp of Dem hack lawyers looking to get Trump on anything couldn't find this but a dutch TV company could??????

Mueller and Rosenstein need to be fired for gross incompetence! After spending $17 Million dollars so far- this brainiac couldn't find what a Dutch TV company found??????

12. actually that is not what the article states, in fact, it states the exact opposite

(i.e. Mueller already knows this, and Mueller hasn't said one word about anything

13. Wow, how did Mueller not find this already?

Or maybe the charges are coming next week.

I still don’t understand how this cost Hillary the election, though.
