    Two deep dives into Trumpworld financials, light weekend reading

    During his time working at the Trump Organization, Mr. Cohen became a minor real estate baron in his own right.

    While his business is dwarfed by Mr. Trump’s assemblage of properties, it is not insignificant. From 2011 to 2015, limited liability companies connected to Mr. Cohen purchased at least five buildings in Manhattan, public records show.

    Like many of Mr. Cohen’s business dealings, the transactions were unconventional. His companies would buy a building, often in cash. Soon after, they would flip the building in another all-cash deal for four or five times the previous purchase price. The buyer was generally another limited liability company.

    and in other news, the Be Best pamphlet is plagiarized. I just don't get it. I'm not a Melania fan, but she can't be a blithering idiot. So........??? If I had been humiliated for giving a plagiarized speech, I'd make certain that nothing from my office was ever lifted again.
    How......why??

    Well, I guess the president is off the hook. He never had to pay Stormy Daniels because some Russian oligarch did it for him. Case closed!

    TBF, he doesn't care about facts and cares far less about telling the truth.

    It looks like the money trail is leading right up to Trump
    Vekeselberg gave hundreds of thousands of dollars to Cohen beginning in January 2017.

    Avenatti has posted documents . Vekselberg, chairman of asset manager Renova Group, is an oligarch close to Vladimir Putin. He put the money in the SAME ACCOUNT that Stormy's payoff came from.
