Palmer Report: Now we know why Donald Trump has been desperately trying to create a distraction

Donald Trump has a surreal habit of trying so desperately to distract from impending bombshells in his Russia scandal, he ends up unwittingly tipping off that they’re coming. The past few days Trump has been trotting out all his greatest hits, attacking everyone from Hillary Clinton to the media to the FBI, in an over the top manner even by his unhinged standards. Now we know why Trump has been so desperate to create a distraction.

On Saturday evening, the New York Times revealed that Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos drunkenly bragged about the Trump-Russia conspiracy to an Australian diplomat in early 2016, and that’s how the FBI first got wind of the treasonous plot (link). In terms of the investigation, this is a stunning development. It confirms that the probe was not originally based on the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, as Trump’s allies have been insisting in recent weeks, but that it was instead based on a Trump adviser’s own mouth.

Trump appears to be particularly thrown off by this story. Just as it was being posted to the NY Times website, Trump tweeted “I use Social Media not because I like to, but because it is the only way to fight a VERY dishonest and unfair press, now often referred to as Fake News Media. Phony and non-existent sources are being used more often than ever. Many stories & reports a pure fiction!”

In other words, Donald Trump is trying harder than ever to push the notion that the damaging stories being reported about him are baseless. This comes even as we’re now seeing that these bombshells are based on the firmest kind of evidence. One of Trump’s own key people got drunk and bragged about the Trump-Russia plot to a diplomat. Evidence doesn’t get any more legitimate than that. No wonder Trump has been so desperate to distract from this story.

Palmer Report: Ivanka Trump caught up in diamond and money laundering scheme

Another day, another money laundering scheme that just so happens to be tied to Ivanka Trump. We’ve seen it in New York real estate. We’ve seen it in Panama. Now Ivanka has been caught up in an alleged money laundering scheme involving her diamond business, which she conveniently got rid of recently, which involves everything from subpoenas to international intrigue. Oh, and it also conveniently involves Jared Kushner.

This time around the story is that the Commercial Bank of Dubai has subpoenaed Ivanka’s diamond jewelry line, under the premise that the diamonds were used as part of a nine-figure money laundering scheme, according to a GQ report (link). One of the alleged conspirators also just happens to be the guy who introduced Ivanka to Jared Kushner, whom she went on to marry.

This comes not long after the reporting about Ivanka’s involvement with her father’s businesses in Panama, which just happened to be deeply involved in money laundering. And of course Ivanka spearheaded various shady Trump Organization real estate deals with Felix Sater, who has been convicted for money laundering in relation to the Russian mafia. Every time we turn around, Ivanka Trump just happens to be connected to money laundering. It’s clear that (alleged) criminals worldwide are consistently choosing Trump family businesses for their money laundering needs. Either the Trumps are the most naive people in the world, or they actively seek out money launderers, which would mean they’re all going to prison.

Last week, prominent Democrats in Congress began making a concerted effort to publicly connect the dots between Donald Trump and money laundering. Congressman Adam Schiff went on MSNBC and made a point of mentioning Trump and Russian money laundering in the same sentence. Senator Ron Wyden then took to the Senate floor and took a stand on the Treasury Department’s refusal to cooperate with the Russian money laundering investigation into Donald Trump. The Trump family seems to be as synonymous with money laundering as it is with lying and bankruptcy.

Palmer Report: Robert Mueller strikes back

For weeks, a number of prominent Republicans in Congress have been working overtime to dishonestly smear the reputation of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, in the hope of sabotaging his investigation into Donald Trumps Russia scandal. The GOPs primary talking point has been that the investigation and related warrants and arrests are based on the infamous Trump-Russia dossier, a legitimate piece of research thats also been falsely smeared. Now Mueller is striking back by revealing that the investigation originally emanated from an entirely different source: alcohol.

Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos got drunk early in 2016 and bragged about how he was conspiring with Russia to try to rig the election against Hillary Clinton, according to a New York Times report (link). An Australian diplomat heard it and reported him to the FBI, which set the Trump-Russia investigation in motion. It was later taken over by Mueller after Trump illegally fired FBI Director James Comey in the hope of sabotaging the investigation.

While the New York Times has done extensive reporting here on a number of aspects of the Papadopoulos story, make no mistake: the detail about him mouthing off while drunk had to have come from the FBI itself. Moreover, the FBI wouldnt have leaked this information to the media without Mueller signing off on it. The timing makes fairly clear that Mueller is putting this out there specifically to counter the Republican Partys sudden false claim that the investigation originated from the dossier.

Remarkably, this means Robert Mueller and the FBI have been sitting on this detail about George Papadopoulos from the start. Theyre only letting this particular cat out of the bag at this time for strategic reasons. This comes after they managed to keep the arrest of Papadopoulos secret for four months before strategically revealing that as well. Mueller and the FBI have been several steps ahead all along.
