Major investigation into Russian money laundering suddenly comes to "abrupt end." Wait, what?

Courtesy of CNN: 

A major US investigation into Russian money laundering has come to an abrupt end. 

The case aimed to expose how Russian mobsters allegedly stole $230 million and hid some of the cash in New York City real estate. Also sure to come up was the suspicious death of the Russian lawyer who exposed the alleged fraud, though US prosecutors weren't alleging that the defendants were behind it. 

The trial was set to start on Monday, but late Friday night, federal prosecutors in New York announced they settled the case with Prevezon, the company accused of buying up "high-end commercial space and luxury apartments" with laundered money. 

The abrupt conclusion has some involved in the trial wondering why this Russian investigation had been cut short. 

"What most concerns me is: Has there been any political pressure applied in this?" asked Louise Shelley, an illicit finance expert who was set to testify in support of the US government on Tuesday. 

Shelley — who founded George Mason University's Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center — said the alleged money launderers got off easy. 

"I think they won something. There's no recognition of wrongdoing," she said.

CNN's request for comment from the US Attorney was ignored.

If you are thinking that this had something to do with Donald Trump, give yourself a gold star for obvious observational skills.

If you are also thinking that Trump's Justice Department did some behind the scenes manipulations to make this whole thing go away, you go ahead and give yourself two of those stars.

And trust me this will not be the last of these investigations to suddenly come to an abrupt end.

If Trump has his way, EVERY investigation into his financial ties, collusion, or possible urination videos concerning Russia will end up on the same trash heap of history.

That is why my friends that those of us who claim to be participating in The Resistance need to keep our eyes open and spread this kind of news far and wide.

If you find any more cases of this type of obstructionism you need to send the link here to IM, but also put it on your Facebook feed and encourage your friends and family to disseminate it so that it is not forgotten, and so that we can make a timeline of what Trump did to protect himself from possible prosecution. And who helped him to do it.

We are at war, and it is a war where one side tries to spread the facts, and the other side attempts to deny the very existence of those facts.

Or, of facts in general.

    Jesus Christ is America in trouble with this fat fuck (Bill Maher's great two-word identification tag for Trump!) in charge. He's corrupt as Hell and all about covering up his evil deeds.

    We need to go after his sorry ass targeting his eventual (and the sooner the better!) IMPEACHMENT!

      Think that anyone will be clamoring for an audience with the "queen" as with First Ladies past? I highly doubt it.

      No one is asking her for interviews; she's in this isolated bubble. Normally, I would feel sorry for her, but I can't.

      In this day and age, what woman walks behind a man, let alone that pig? If she's self-conscious, she could do something about it to up her self esteem but, alas, $$$.

      No respect for her whatsoever.

      Special schools for autistic kids sure are expensive.

    4. Anonymous10:20 PM

      And Barron is autistic af. Did anyone else notice that on Autism Awareness Day Trump had the White House lit in blue? Trump doesn't give a shit about autism or any other so-called disability, so to me that was the equivalent of publically admitting that Barron is autistic.

    Drumpf will be busy a little later tonight with his tiny little weeny in his microscopic hands, fapping away to the Miss USA pageant.

    BTW, the Federal Prosecutor who was handling this case was Preed Barara, who Trump had asked to stay on then abruptly fired. Coincidence? And wanna bet the Ad's fingerprints are all over this.

    This is one of the cases Drump could be impeached on racketeering.

    Trump's fiasco will come to an end. He may think he is winning but he will find out that he is not. He nor his enablers will survive and shortly will go down. Every word spoken from the mouth of a liar will come back to haunt him as he walks the halls of the people's house touting his failures. He is not a leader. He is a ugly human liar showboat going over the cliff.

    There is a very interesting documentary on You Tube, produced by Zembla TV from the Netherlands, titled "The Dubious Friends of Donald Trump", which outlines his shady connections to the Russian underworld, particularly rich oligarchs. See the story and link at Raw Story. This is a must-see documentary, which of course, will never be seen on any U.S. network!

      W should send the link to our elected officials in DC every fucking day til they do something.

    2. Anonymous7:51 AM

      What's up with the massive hacking? Uh oh. Expose anyone? So much for being an oligarch. So much for being rich. Just another slug in the underworld. Any bets on how long they last when they fall? Will have to meet in Amsterdam for free drinks? ;)

    Investigation into Donald Trump’s Russia scandal has ensnared Donald Jr, Eric and Ivanka

    1. Palmer Report has previously reported on Ivanka Trump’s involvement in Donald’s phony hotel in Azerbaijan, which appears to be little more than a money laundering front (link).

    2. We’ve also reported on Eric Trump’s involvement in the recent opening of his father’s golf course in Dubai, which looks to have been tied to the military raid in Yemen (link).

    3. And then there’s Donald Trump Jr, who has bragged on Twitter about his business trips in Russia dating back to 2008

    This now raises the question of what Donald Trump will do if his own children end up getting indicted or charged in relation to his own scandals. If such a deal were offered, would he be willing to give up the presidency in exchange for getting them off the hook?

    1. Anonymous3:30 AM

      That will cause a revolution for sure in this fucked up country. If the repubs offer that to him as a way out without admitting Drumpfs own culpability, it will be a uuuuge disaster. The biggest. Civil war.

    2. Anonymous8:14 AM

      No it won't 330. It might cause a South park episode.
      Or an SNL skit. Civil war?
      Haha. Yeah go back to sleep.

    3. Anonymous1:54 PM

      Well no worries 3:30 or 8:14, since the fake information is coming from the joke calling itself the palmer report, you can be rest assured, none of this is true.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
