Special Counsel Probing Other Areas of Trump’s Transactions


Seth Connell reports that President Trump told special prosecutor Robert Mueller that he should remain out of business and financial transactions that were not related to the Russia probe. But just this morning, Mueller went ahead and did exactly that.


The probe by the Office of Special Counsel will now look into various business dealings by the Trump business that are apparently believed to have connection to the Russian meddling.


Bloomberg News reports that the probe will now examine transactions involving the President and several of his associates.


The transactions which are coming under scrutiny are several real estate deals which the he conducted with certain wealthy Russians over the past several years.


Now, this normally would not be a surprise; Donald Trump is a real estate mogul and holds incredible amounts of property all over the world. The fact that he did business with some people from Russia is not something that is alarming. But because of rampant Russophobia, any and all things having anything to do with anyone Russian, at any point in his life, must be placed under investigation.

And remember Clinton’s impeachment started as a land deal before he became president and ended up with lying under oath about an affair with White House intern.

FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development in New York with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the said.
