Collusion: Meetings, Dirty Money, and How Russia Helped Donald Trump Win.
This a new book by a Guardian foreign correspondent, Luke Harding.


' Many of the incriminating facts reported in Collusion won’t be new to serious students of this saga, but the experience of reading them all in one place can be almost overwhelming. When, less than halfway through the book, ex-MI6 spy Christopher Steele describes the Trump-Russia conspiracy as “absolutely massive”, it sounds like classic British understatement.'


The 'won't be new facts' include a couple of reminders,

' Trump informed reporters after the FBI raided Manfort’s home in August that he had only worked on Trump’s campaign “for a very short period of time”. However Harding points out that the president first met Manfort almost 40 years ago, and hired him soon after “to look after gambling and real estate issues” '


Then there were the Tweets,

'In 2008 Donald Trump Jr said in Moscow: “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”
A Reuters investigation revealed that individuals with Russian passports or addresses had bought property worth $98.4m in seven Trump-branded towers in Florida. And as late as January 2016, Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, was begging Putin’s press secretary for help to resuscitate a “Trump-Moscow project in Moscow City”'



'However there is also the hidden faces of the Deutsche Bank's PED as below,

'what may be even more dangerous to Trump’s future is the recent report that Mueller has subpoenaed records of Trump’s dealings with Deutsche Bank. The last part of Harding’s book is devoted to Trump’s incredibly convoluted relationship with the German bank, which included defaulting on a $330m loan from its real estate division – and then settling that default by borrowing hundreds of millions more from the bank’s private equity division.'


The PED, is a private set-up within the Deutsche Bank, that is completely autonomous, and it seems, a closed shop for most people, and seemingly, they don't do things for nothing...so why bail out Trump, on a default due to the Deutsche Bank?

I dare say the rest of the book will be very interesting.

I really think If Trump had released all his tax records and was completely transparent about his money the USA wouldn't be in the political turmoil it is in now.

I'd be interested in who's behind the PED. I'm sure Trump didn't get $330 Million of loan forgiveness out of the good of their hearts.

I'd bet Mueller is very interested in that as well.

I really think it may not have made any difference at all.

He didn't get forgiveness for the loan, he still has to pay the faces...in some way, and yes, the first time I saw this mentioned, quite a while ago in fact, I became interested in this group too, but there is little info on who they are, while they are probably an international grouping.

Harding has already written a book on dissident, Alexander Litvinenko and his murder. Harding was already acquainted with Steele, and as it turns out, Steele was chosen then by MI6 to investigate the murder.

Hillary has her mention in the Steele Dossier....presumably you don't know about any dossier though...so,

“A dossier of compromising material on Hillary CLINTON has been collated by the Russian Intelligence Services over many years and mainly comprises bugged conversations she had on various visits to Russia and intercepted phone calls rather than any embarrassing conduct. The dossier is controlled by Kremlin spokesman, PESKOV, directly on Putin’s orders. However, it has not yet been distributed abroad, including to TRUMP. Russian intentions for its deployment still unclear.”

Your right my only information is from the Internet and media.

I have no idea. Unless anyone has there hands on anything literal and legitimate they don't either.

Edit

The stuff on Clinton I do see and know is enough for me to know she is scum. However the constant speculation and lies from all sides is getting insane.

Steele thinks his dossier is about 70/90 % true.

www.theguardian.com...

Would love to read it.
So Trump fans what percentage of the dossier would you think is correct?. I have no Idea but maybe it will be released so we can all have a look.
