The Russian intrigue is getting better by the day.

Now we see a report from BuzzFeed that has Russia wiring money into Embassy bank accounts with a "secret" little message attached.

The code message: to finance election campaign of 2016 !!!

Looks like they even sent $30,000 to the Embassy in Washington DC.

According to the story, the FBI is investigating several points.

Bank records are supposedly being "looked at".

+++ The article has several tangents +++

Secret Finding: 60 Russian Payments "To Finance Election Campaign Of 2016”


On Aug. 3 of last year, just as the US presidential election was entering its final, heated phase, the Russian foreign ministry sent nearly $30,000 to its embassy in Washington. The wire transfer, which came from a Kremlin-backed Russian bank, landed in one of the embassy’s Citibank accounts and contained a remarkable memo line: “to finance election campaign of 2016.”

That wire transfer is one of more than 60 now being scrutinized by the FBI and other federal agencies investigating Russian involvement in the US election. The transactions, which moved through Citibank accounts and totaled more than $380,000, each came from the Russian foreign ministry and most contained a memo line referencing the financing of the 2016 election.

The money wound up at Russian embassies in almost 60 countries from Afghanistan to Nigeria between Aug. 3 and Sept. 20, 2016. It is not clear how the funds were used. At least one transaction that came into the US originated with VTB Bank, a financial institution that is majority-owned by the Kremlin.

What the hell is $30,000.00 supposed to do when the country as a whole spent 5 Billion.

It is chump change! Looks more like a joke.

More like someone wanted a talking point.

This seems like a sting for Russia to laugh and say, 'Yes, we spent some loose change on your Election and BTW, how much did you spend on our election?.

Works out to 1.8 million over 60 payments.

Remember it takes over 1.5 billion to buy the presidency.

Still your right.

A drop in the bucket compared to what we throw around.

is that what you're telling yourself to keep your esteem afloat in the midst of all the revelations of a foreign body effectively influencing the great 'influencer' itself, the good old US of A.

i guess after decades of meddling in foreign countries and helping to topple 'regimes', it would be hard to accept it could be done to us, in such a cerebral and effective manner...
so yea... they were just 'trolling' the election cycle, because the funds weren't even real money, it was monopoly money. they did all this accounting and coordinating for the 'lulz'.

No that's what the article said.

For those that actually bothered to read it.



The money wound up at Russian embassies in almost 60 countries from Afghanistan to Nigeria between Aug. 3 and Sept. 20, 2016.It is not clear how the funds were used. At least one transaction that came into the US originated with VTB Bank, a financial institution that is majority-owned by the Kremlin.




Compliance officers in Citibank’s Global Intelligence Unit flagged them as suspicious, noting that it was unable to determine the financial, business, or legal purpose of the transactions.


And for the record.

It's not hard to get a bank action declared that way.

Since their systems is as bout as EFFED up as it can get.

I really don't think Russians are so incompetent to send money to their embassy for illegal activities and label it "for illegal activities" when they can send a briefcase with more money than 30k, put it a diplomatic label and be sure it's completly ok and nobody can look at it.

Are you really this dense?

They are throwing the BS back at the intel agencies by labeling this money as for the elections to troll them. If they were doing this they would not label it.

They are laughing at people like you who believe they stole the election and you are so clueless you don't even realize you are being made fun of.

Nooo... The money was compensation to the guy who rigged the election machines for Hillary. And the transportation/meal tickets for illegals bussed to vote in New Hampshire.
