In a strange turn of events, Trump held a joint press conference in the White House with the President of Kazakhstan just hours after Rachel Maddow connected the dots by following the suspicious money trai to the new person in charge of the bank where evidence of impropriety may be retained.
“Specifically, the dictator of Kazakhstan put his son-in-law in control of that bank, which means if there is any problematic surviving evidence or participation in the big obvious money laundering schemes, if there is potential criminal liability for different dealings figures records of those transactions … they would be in the office safe of the son-in-law of the dictator of Kazakhstan,” Maddow said
“Guess who is coming to the White House tomorrow, invited to meet President Trump,” Maddow asked, rhetorically. “The dictator of Kazakhstan.” “Really?”
You can watch the Maddow break down here…
Naturally reporters asked questions about that and Trump did not it well.
One reporter asked “Mr. President, is there any Kazakh money in Trump Soho?” Trump said “No idea, really no idea.”
He could have just said no, but instead he raised even more suspicions. The odds are high that there is actually foreign money being laundered through Trump’s real estate deals, but that’s a story for another day.
When another reporter jumped on the fact that Trump’s doctor had just released an odd medical report about Trump’s “excellent health”, he asked about Trump’s bone spurs. Trump was able to avoid the Vietnam War by getting a diagnosis of bone spurs in his feet and then participated in college sports, raising concerns about that original diagnosis.
The final straw for Trump was when Jim Acosta of CNN asked about his “shithole” country remark and Trump yelled “OUT!”
Later Jim said that “As I attempted to ask questions in Roosevelt Room of Trump, WH press aides shouted in my face to drown out my questions. I have never encountered that before.”
It appears when the White House can’t control the media, they simply kick them out. With so much to hide we can’t say we are surprised.
