72 paths to Putin-

Updated version here
I started writing this because I thought it was important to have a clear understand of what the hell is going on with the Trump – Russia connections. Some of these are just rumors or probably mean nothing (1, 22, 25, 31) but the sheer number of Russian mobsters who have lived at Trump tower and the fact that 4 people have had to resign over connections to Putin is alarming.

Honestly the discovery that surprised me the most is the Abramoff connection. I’m beginning to think that the Russians partnered with the Republican party in the 1990s to build an alliance for reasons not yet known.

  1. His son in Law is Jared Kushner, the former owner of the Observer. The Observer received the DNC hacks from Guccifer 2.0 who is rumored to be a Russian agent.
  2. Jared Kushner’s parents were friends with Netanyahu. He has forged an alliance with Putin.
  3. His Chief Strategist is Steve Bannon. Bannon is the CEO of Breitbart, with the Mercer family having majority ownership.  The Mercers, along with Bannon are heavily involved in Cambridge Analytica a data gathering firm. Cambridge Analytica’s parent company is SCL Group, which lists Dmitry Firtash as a board member. Breitbart and Bannon have extensive ties to the far right movement in Europe which is also funded by Putin.
  4. His second campaign manager is Paul Manafort. He had to resign in August due to having questionable Russian ties like Dmitry Firtash and the former Ukrainian President. Manafort lives in Trump tower, along with Kellyanne Conway and her husband.
  5. Mike McSherry, former Delegate strategist for the Trump campaign also lobbied for the same Ukrainian presidential candidate as Paul Manafort.
  6. Rick Gates,  Manaforts top aide also lobbied for Pro-Putin Ukrainian candidate.
  7. Per Politico,  Manafort met with Konstantin Kilimnik multiple times during the campaign. The first time appears to be in April, maybe when Trump gave that speech? Kilimnik is thought to be part of Russian intelligence.
  8. They worked Oleg Deripaska on investment funds in Ukraine.
  9. Firtash worked with Russian Mob Semion Moglivech boss to help Gazprom oversee Natural Gas distribution to Ukraine.
  10. Trump advisor J.D. Gordon is claiming that he was the advisor who had the Ukraine language softened at the Republican National Convention, at the request of Donald Trump
  11. Kellyanne Conway’s husband has business dealings with the  Russian government and deleted tweets about it once Conway was chosen. (Conway, Bannon, and the Mercers are part of the “Council on National Policy” a secretive far right think tank group.
  12. Trump sold his condo to Dmitry Rybolovev, whose private plane keeps showing up where Trump is. Rybolovev is a Russian billionaire with ties to Putin.
  13. There is a Pro-Russian Think tank called the Center for the National Interest (CNI). CNI Board Member Henry Kissinger, former US Diplomat and current Putin confidante, has gotten close to Trump.
  14. Kissinger suggested both Tillerson and KT McFarland to Trump.
  15. Secretary of State Tillerson has many Russian business dealings through Exxon with Igor Sechin, head of Rosneft.
  16. The Dossier Christopher Steele created said that Igor Sechin along with Oleg Orovinkin were working on a deal to sell 19.5% of Rosneft to Trump in exchange for dropping sanctions. This deal relied on Carter Page, who resigned as a Trump advisor in September. After the election, a 19.5% deal went through, Oleg Orovkin was found dead in his car and the guy behind the Russian Hacking was arrested for treason in Russia.Ca
  17. The Rosneft deal is linked to Trump through a vast network of holding companies. The 19.5% was through a Singapore company using Caymans offshore accounts. QHG shares was the holding company of the 19.5% sale. QHG’s disclosure form stated that it used to be called CATALPO PTE, but no such company existed. Perhaps they did that to confuse people. Anyways, a company with the same information called CATALPA PTE did exist though. Catalpa shared an address with the Intertrust Group. Intertrust’s filing shows an affiliation with Walkers Global which is the affiliation used to incorporate QHG. Intertrust is owned by the Blackstone Group.  If that name seems familiar, it is because Blackstone CEO is Stephen Schwarzman, one of Trump’s senior economic advisors.  Uncovered thanks to this amazing Twitter user 
  18. The Blackstone Group was cofounded by Stephen Schwarzman and CNI Board Member Peter Peterson.
  19. The Dossier also claims Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen traveled to meet with Russians, which he denied. Recently, it came out that he was working with Felix Sater to broker a Ukrainian-Russia peace deal. Cohen, Sater, and a member of the Ukrainian Parliament, Andreii Artemenko sat down for dinner to discuss Ukraine, Russia, and sanctions.
  20. Alex Oronov, working with Cohen and Artemenko, developed the plan which they planned on leaving on Michael Flynn’s desk until he had to resign. Oronov mysteriously died at the beginning of March.
  21. Felix Sater claimed to be a Senior Advisor to Trump , which Trump claimed not to remember.  Sater had his own office in Trump Tower. Sater has been connected to organized crime and his father is in the Russian Mafia
  22. To finance Trump SoHo, the Bayrock Group formed a tax evading partnership with Icelandic FL-Group. Trump had to sign off on this deal.
  23. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross invested 500 million in the Bank of Cyprus and is on the board of directors. This is where Putin launders his money. Dmitry Rybolovev (7) is the largest shareholder at this bank,  and another Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg is the second largest shareholder.
  24. Deutsche Bank, under Ackerman was the only bank willing to loan money to Trump after he declared bankruptcy four times. Josef Ackerman left Deutche Bank to join the Bank of Cyprus after Wilber Ross engineered his takeover.
  25. Putin’s propaganda news station Russia Today has frequently had Michael Flynn, Carter Page,  and Sebastian Gorka on it.
  26. Carter Page was named as a foreign policy advisor because Jeff sessions Chief of Staff, Rick Dearborn found him.
  27. Stephen Miller is Jeff Sessions former aide and is friends with Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer. Spencer has ties to European far right groups and was married to a Russian Propaganda mouthpiece with ties to Stephen Bannon.
  28. Trump friend Roger Stone is in contact with Julian Assange who runs WikiLeaks, who also hacked the DNC and provided leaks to Russia today. Stone is also partner in a lobbying firm with Paul Manafort
  29. Secretary of Education Betsy Devos is the sister of mercenary Erik Prince. Erik Prince is running all over the world helping dictators suppress Muslims. He is a Breitbart contributor, a Pence supporter and a Trump advisor.
  30. Prince also used to work for House Rep Dana Rohrabacker, also known as Putin’s Favorite Congressman and one time considered to be Trumps secretary of State.
  31. Prince is connected to John Ashcroft through Constellis Holdings, as Constellis owns Princes old company, Blackwater. Ashcroft has defended Lord of War Victor Bout, a Russian connected to Igor Sechin.
  32. Vadim Trincher, who lived in Trump tower ran a gambling ring out of Trump tower on behalf of Russian mafia don Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov.
  33. Preet Bhahara was fired by the President yesterday, along with the other U.S. Attorneys in what is a common move when a new party take power. The odd thing is that Trump had previously asked him stay on.  Bhahara is the Attorney responsible for putting Victor Bout and the Russian gambling ring in jail. He also prosecuted one Russian for drug trafficking, a dozen Russian spies, and a Russian Banker. 3 days before being fired, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington requested that he investigate Trump Tower.
  34. Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn violated the Logan Act by discussing lifting sanctions with The Russian Ambassador pre-inauguration. He also met with Austrian Neo-Nazis working with Putin.
  35. Trump Tower housed an office of Alfa Bank which had a private server communicating with companies like Spectrum Health,  which lists members of the Devos Family as Board Members.
  36.  Richard Burt, a Republican Lobbyist and CNI Board Member sat on the board of Alfa Bank. He worked for the Trump Campaign while lobbying for Russian State owned Gazprom
  37. In recent years, Gazprom has hired the lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs to lobby for it.  Lobbyist and Trump supporter Jack Kingston visited Russia the same week as former Gazprom lobbyist Carter page. Totally a coincidence.
  38. Trump threw Miss Universe with Putin-Connected Oligarch Aras Agalorov and had Alex Sapir/Rotem Rosen as guests
  39. Alex Sapir is the son of Tamir Sapir, and they own condos in Trump tower. Sapir and his organization partnered with Bayrock on plenty of Trump condo projects. Alex’s sister married Rotem Rosen, a former lieutenant for Lev Leviev
  40. The Bayrock Group was founded by Tevfik Araf, and housed in Trump Tower. Araf hired Felix Sater as his C.O.O.
  41. Michael Caputo, who helped run Trump’s NY primary, lived in Russia in the 90’s and was Contracted by Gazprom to improve Russia’s image in the United States.
  42. Michael Caputo works for Trump apologist Chris Collins now, and learned everything he knew from Roger Stone.
  43. Ivanka Trump is close friends with Putin’s rumored girlfriend Wendi Deng.
  44. Ivanka is also close with Russian Oligarch Roman Abramovich and his wife. Here is a photo of them together (also with Wendi Deng) Abramovich owns the steel company building the pipelines recently approved
  45. The Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin died on 2/20. He invited Trump to Russia in 1986.
  46. Lev Leviev is a Putin friend. Not only has he had multiple business dealings with Jared Kushner and the Bayrock group (Felix Sater and Tamir Kapir) but he also works with Netanyahu on settlements.
  47. Russian-Canadian Alex Shnaider partnered with Trump on a building project in Toronto. Shnaider partnered with Ukrainian Billionaire Eduard Shifrin to form a holding company called the Midland Group. Shiftin was recently given Russian Citizenship by a Putin presidential decree. Alex’s father in law Boris Birshtein is associated with the Russian Mafia.
  48. Semion Mogilevich is the head of the Russian mafia. In the 1990’s, he started a fake company with Jacob Bogatin as the CEO. Jacob’s brother David owned 5 separate condos in Trump tower at one point and is well known as part of Mogilevich’s key members.
  49. Mogilevich key lieutenant Vyacheslav Ivankov also lived at Trump tower.
  50. Jack Abramoff may be where it all starts. Russian Oil and Gas company NAFTAsib formed a shell company called Chelsea Commercial, which only listed Abramoff and Patrick Pizzella as lobbyists when it was created.  The purpose of Chelsea was to promote Russian oil and trade interests in the United States.  It also underwrote the trip Tom Delay and Ed Buckham made to Russia with Abramoff.  Pizzella also happens to work for Trump. Buckham formed the Alexander Strategy Group to help the US Family Network funnel its money received from Naftasib. The US Family network was primarily a vehicle consisting of Buckham, Delay, Ralph Reed, CNI Board Member Grover Norquist and Abramoff. These people have been members of the Council on National Policy over the years.
  51. In November 1998, Jack Abramoff organized a meeting between Sergei Kiriyenko and Republican lawmakers.  Kiriyenko is the former prime minister, and is also featured in the Dossier as part of the Trump scandal.
  52. Don McGahn, White House Counsel defended Tom Delay on charges of a Russian Pay . Delay, along with Jack Abramoff, Buckham, and Ney met with Viktor Chernomyrdin, former head of Gazprom in the 1990s.
  53. Mcgahn also happened to start working for Squire Patton Boggs, the lobbyists representing Gazprom in 2013. SPB, he moved on to Jones Day.
  54. Jones Day opened a Moscow office in 2013 after it successfully worked with AlfaBank (MIkhail Fridman) and Renova Group (Viktor Vekselberg) to create an oil producer with BP, called TNK-BP. It has since been bought out by Rosneft. From there, Mcgahn signed on to work for the Trump Presidential Campaign.
  55. Former Senator Conrad Burns was also taken down by the Abramoff Scandal, and he had positive things to say about Putin. Burns passed away weeks before Trump announced his presidential run.
  56. Patrick Pizzella was recently named Acting President of the Federal Labor Relations Authority.
  57. Pizzella and Abramoff organized many trips for conservatives to the Marianas. During one trip, Pizzella had Kellyanne Conway show up . If that is not enough, Conway and Pizzela are both on the Center for National Policy board
  58.  Alexander Strategy Group’s main lobbyist was Paul Behrends, former National Security Advisor to Dana Rohrabacker and family friend of Erik Prince.  He is the Current Staff Director for the House Foreign Affairs committee.
  59. Abramoff partnered with Charlie Black (of the lobbying firm Black, (Paul) Manafort and (Roger) Stone)  in the 80s to work with brutal African dictators.
  60. Sebastian Gorka worked for Viktor Orban, a Hungarian authoritarian leader close to Putin, before moving to the United States to work for the Republicans. Now he works for the Trump White House.
  61. Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak, widely regarded as Russia’s top spy, was revealed to have met with Attorney General Sessions twice last year in his capacity as a Senator. He also met with Jared Kushner and Michael Flynn in December.  Also, when the Republicans removed anti-Russia language from the Platform at the convention? It was because Trump advisors Carter Page and JD Gordon met with Kislyak.
  62. Trump advisor Rudy Giuliani lobbied for Rosneft
  63. Jim Baker lobbied Trump to nominate Tillerson as Secretary of State, possibly because of the fact that his firm represents both Exxon and Gazprom/Rosneft
  64. The Former head of Yukos is a Trump backer and campaign donor.
  65.  CNI Board Member David McCormick is an executive at Bridgewater Associates where James Comey served as General Counsel prior to joining the FBI.  They also both worked in the Bush administration, albeit in different cabinet departments.
  66. CNI Board Member Jon Huntsman was tapped to be ambassador to Russia.
  67. CNI Board Members Dmitri K. Simes and Paul Saunders have hosted events Trump has spoken at, and Simes has been referred to by Putin as his American Friend
  68. Donald Trump met with Ambassador Kislyak during the Presidential Campaign, which looks like nothing until you remember he had previously denied any such meetings.
  69. Trump ally David Clarke visited Moscow the same week as Michael Flynn.  His trip was paid for by a Russian gun rights group headed by Maria Butina and included several NRA heads. Butina is close with long time Republican strategist Paul Erickson
  70. Sergei Millian, a Russian born real estate developer has close ties to Trump and to Michael Cohen.  It is also said that he may have been behind some of the dirty claims in the dossier.
  71. Trump advisor Boris Epshteyn is a Russian born Pro-Putin immigrant, who has spent a lot of time talking about Crimea on television
  72. Mark Burnett helped remake Trumps image into a successful reality star, ran his inauguration festivities and has worked with Putin on reality television. Grant Stern does a fantastic job laying out the case that Burnett could have been the guy in the middle of all of this.

    1. So fucking what if he has ties to Russia. And so what if the truth came out, that’s a good thing unless you like liars and crooks, I mean liberals or progressives or whatever. As for the unions,it all sounds good until the greedy crooks get control of it. It’s great for the union workers as their greed prices American goods non competitive. Seriously , the price of a new car is insane fuck the unions. Pay your dues hahaha.

      1. Yeah, screw those unions, with wanting workers not to get killed on the job.

        My grandmother was in ILGWU. You should Google that and “Triangle Shirtwaist Factory.” Then you might (but probably wouldn’t) understand that unions save lives.

        One more thing: If you’re ok with this Russia stuff, don’t ever get caught claiming you love this country. Ok?

      2. Its called the truth- something that ‘Republicans’ have a problem with. He lied to the nation and the world- trump has no credibility. Its called our Constitution and his business interests- reputable or as fronts for Russian mob money, is a conflict of interest.
        Wait- let me put this into a ‘tweet’ so you know its factual.

  1. I appreciate the effort put here for connecting the dots. As a former DOD (clearance level) analytics employee; with a technical programming/finance background this an excellent draft. There are so many moving pieces at play here in Trump’s network design layout.

    The moment Trump embraced Russian cyber espionage (July); my intuition indicated the spy agencies may have a retaliation plan. Ironically; we find out through the European media a FISA court request was taken out on the Trump campaign regarding links between Russian Banks to his circle. This FISA request was denied which is happens less than 1% of the time.

    Having a contact with a Top-Secret Clearance; I had plenty of firsthand knowledge on the “intelligentsia” professional culture. Many of these professionals lean conservative in their political views; but they patriotic at heart. My (politically conservative) contact calls Trump a dictator who fucking hates his guts. Many of these folks went 3rd party, or went to Hillary. And we know all of the insane rhetoric Trump displayed for Democracy up until election day; only to then go nuclear crazy post election day.

    The minute Trump won the election; my initial thoughts are the intelligence agencies may play the drip game. (At this time; I didn’t have 100% knowledge the 2nd October FISA warrant was approved by a new judge on unknown Trump cabinet members). But when rumors came out that Obama was leaning towards pardoning PVT- Manning; I’m generally thinking he’s making a public call for declassifying intelligence on Trump. The sequence of events where playing out in my mind.

    Having worked on Obama’s Primary; I knew personally how much Obama cared about people. Sincerely; he did want to give PVT manning a second chance on life due to his hard sentence; public benefits of his leaked information; & his personal situation. But this execution action by Obama was the precedent in what has been this slow & steady string of links directly crushing Trump.

    1. Yes, I have thought the Manning commutation had something to do with this investigation, and her personal circumstances and sentence made it good cover.

      1. There are a lot of clues in what obama did.. he didn’t simply let manning free without a bigger fish to fry. I don’t think there’s a bigger fish than Trump.

    2. Best hang on tight snivelers because trump is gonna take a dump, you have not seen anything yet. You think your all rattled Now? You all need to hit the street and start chanting or light some fires or something. Scared to death you are, as you should be. Good day to you all,and may trump your supreme leader bless you. “WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE” ohhh, words that will forever be remembered,wow, what a women,

  2. Regarding your map; what have been your main sources of information. Would always love to lend a hand in sharing information here. I’m going to definitely spend some time re-reviewing everything you put together here.

    When I see all the players here; I play a game whether this person is directly or indirectly involved with the crimes at hand. Financially speaking; I find it likely that Trump himself is involved with a series of money laundering; tax shelter/evasion, & other fraudulent activities. Why would this be shocking looking at his history of business moves involving extremely vile/illegal tactics.

    Hacking questions —-
    1. Was Trump himself; or other players directly participate in any of the strategic planning behind the malicious cyber intrusions into DNC servers/databases & precision data dumps through Wikileaks? (Yes/No) & (Who)
    2. If the Trump campaign didn’t directly participate in the planning piece; did they have direct communications by Russian intelligence involved confirming the hacking (Yes/NO)- I’m not sure what charges would be here.

    1. Hey Brian,

      I started by looking up his close associates, or anyone mentioned in articles about him and then following the trail until it ran dry or I felt like I was getting too far removed from Trump.

      You should check out my update today. I found a Pro-Russian think tank with tons of connections.

      1. Others, probably.

      2. The Hacking – if it comes out that there was collusion – will take down Cohen, Sater (if Putin doesn’t kill him first), Stone and maybe Manafort.

    2. I have a theory about the hacking. The emails were just the smoke. The real fire was the campaign itself. I think the voter records were scanned in 20+ states to set a sleeping zero-day attack that only triggered when the Democrat’s NPG VAN VoteBuilder system communicated with those databases to pull in voter data. This voter data, sifted through Votebuilder, is how the volunteer network is created, where small-dollar donations come from, and it drives the entire GOTV effort. Mess with that – and you throw the entire campaign off.

      Questions:

      1. Why hack the DNC and DCCC for email? If you want juicy emails about Clinton, there were far easier and far juicier targets. It took 12 seconds to hack John Podesta, for instance. Why would the two big Russian hacking groups – Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear be rooting around at the DNC and DCCC for some rather boring campaign emails when it would have been easier and less risky to find those a million other places?

      2. Why when Cozy Bear and Fancy Bear got caught – did Guccifer 2.0 show up and steal all the headlines? Email, email, email, email, and nobody was talking about the problems the Dems were having with their GOTV predictions and models. For instance, not meeting small-dollar donation targets, not meeting volunteer targets, canvasser’s knocking on Trump supporters doors, texts going to Trump supporter’s phones, etc. You know the best predictor that someone will vote is if there is some personal contact regarding voting — no matter which party does the contacting.

      3. Why after the DNC and DCCC were breached did 20+ states have their voter registration and voter records databases “scanned” and “probed?” If you were to create a zero-day attack and embed it silently into these databases, inactive and hidden until pinged by the exact signature of the Dems GOTV system, you would need to get the Dem GOTV system signature first. And where would you find that signature? The DNC and DCCC.

      4, 5, 6. Why was the Trump team so unconcerned about mounting their own GOTV and ground game? What were all of these Trump team advisors meeting with Russians about during the campaign? Why did Roger Stone seem to know about things — like hacks and emails dumps — before they happened? Why was Trump so vocal and obsessed with the election being “rigged?”

      It’s just a theory.

  3. Love the site and am in awe of the work that went into this. Have you come across any connection with Trump and the hacker Kim Dotcom, who is awaiting extradition to US from New Zealand? He has reason to hate the US, as his assets have been seized, and he is almost assuredly in cahoots with wikileaks and Russia. On December 1, 2014 he made a cryptic tweet about being Hillary’s worst nightmare in the next year.

    I wondered if you had info on that or if was me grasping at straws? Very impressive work, please keep it up.

  4. This superb research would benefit greatly if the 14 defects in the (probably) superb illustration are remedied, which is easy to do.

    1. For text, use only Microsoft’s Arial Narrow Bold or Bitstream’s Futura Medium Condensed, because those 2 fonts are the most legible of all modern illustration fonts, yet they don’t consume any extra horizontal space. This keeps the illustration highly legible on all devices at all sizes.
    2. Use only pure colors (red, orange, green, turquoise, purple, magenta) that contrast deeply against all other colors. This keeps audiences from mistaking one color for another.
    3. Ensure that all colors used have 80 – 90 Lightness (the “L” value in the HLS color model). This keeps the color always light enough to not hamper the darker text in front of it.
    4. Use a dark color for the hairline arrows and connectors.
    5. “JAMES COMEY” should be mostly lower case.
    6. Consider connectors of different thicknesses and//or colors, to indicate different relationships (e.g., buyer/seller, funding, politics, etc.).
    7. In legend, change “Dead” to “Deceased”
    8. Change “Guliani” to “Giuliani”.
    9. It’s not clear why some figures have black border, some have orange border, and some have no border.
    10. In legend, add explanation for the figures that are shaded white.
    11. The last cell visited by a cursor is accidentally highlighted (behind NaftaSib).
    12. Consider how to best represent people / organizations with multiple relationships. For example, Kellyanne Conway is a Trump Tower resident, but she also is a puppet who is owned, funded, and operated by the Mercer family in their political ventures.
    13. Consider adding Russians who died mysteriously before the election, as well as after.
    14. To the whole illustration, add a title, revision #, date, author(s), and Web site.

    1. Hey

      Thanks.
      I did 1,2, 5,7,8, 10, 11 and 14. Maybe because I did this in excel, but 3 and 4 don’t seem possible. I am going to work on 6 and 12, have no idea what you’re talking about for 9, and I did not do 13 because none of them have been linked to Trump.

      1. Looks much better now. My recommendations were based on my assumption that you used Microsoft Visio, which is perfect for this type of project. Long ago I was able to accomplish #3 in Excel, but I can’t recall the steps now. So, try these.

        #3. Customize the dark red shade to pale red using R,G,B values 255,219,255. Then customize the dark turquoise shade to pale turquoise using R,G,B values 192, 255, 255.
        #9. There are orange borders (Rudy Giuliani, Carter Page, Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn #1, Michael Flynn #2), no borders (Trump Tower Tenants), blue borders (ovals and connectors), and black borders (diamonds and most rectangles).
        #15: “Jared Kuahner” should be “Jared Kushner”.
        #16: “Erdogan” should be “Turkish President Erdogan”.
        #17: “Donald Trump JR” should be “Donald Trump, Jr.”.
        #18: There are no connectors to Vitaly Churkin or Michael Flynn #2.
        #19: There’s no legend for Burns, Abrahamoff, Buckham, Delay, Ney, Khodorkovsky, or Steele.

  5. Great work. As a reader, I think Ned Flaherty’s suggestions would vastly improve accessibility to your fine work. Rachel Maddow has been doing A+++, white hot journalism with this kind of information, going deeply, one piece at a time. You two should get in touch.

  6. Michael R. Caputo is now doing PR work for Rep. Chris Collins, Trump’s apologist, outside of Buffalo NY. A profile of Caputo done by Buffalo News, here:

  7. I’m an 84 year old lady and of all the itimized
    accounts of intrigue I’ve read in my lifetime, I think, this is the best one yet, and it’s not over!!…Someday someone will write it in historic form…I don’t want to hurry time but I would like to be around to read it…R Nixon family should put an addendum on his head stone “and you thought he was crook”
    ..

  8. This is great. Here are two more points to add to your exhaustive map.

    Trump had a loan from Deutsche Bank investment banking division to build a Chicago building in 2005. No one else would give him a loan. Trump couldn’t make a 2008 payment and Trump sued DB. DB’s private bank bailed him out in 2012. DB was just fined for money laundering with mirror trades between Moscow and NY. DB’s former head is the chairman of Bank of Cyprus. [3] http://goo.gl/GKd6kQ

    Trump’s former mentor Roy Cohn (aide to Joseph McCarthy) was how Trump became intimately connected to the mob, including the Russian mafia. Frank Sater, a mobster who was *also* an FBI-CIA agent, was one of Bayrock’s (HQed at Trump Tower) founders. [2] http://goo.gl/PFH7uH
