Worst conspiracy theorist ever!
Okay, so I read what the NYT had to say - which ain't much in this entry - and maybe there is some there there but what?
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/06/28/us/p ... v=top-newsBut they had a connection, one Mr. Trump was quick to note in the moments after his first address to Congress in February 2017. As he made his way out of the chamber, Mr. Trump paused to chat with the justice.
“Say hello to your boy,” Mr. Trump said. “Special guy.”
Mr. Trump was apparently referring to Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy spent more than a decade at Deutsche Bank, eventually rising to become the bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and he worked closely with Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer, according to two people with knowledge of his role.
During Mr. Kennedy’s tenure, Deutsche Bank became Mr. Trump’s most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers in New York and Chicago at a time other mainstream banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history.
Kennedy son approved a loan to Trump - before he became president - so his father resigns ... why? Being 85 is a good reason to retire. And did Trump repay the loans? As far as Trump getting money from Russians, that's no secret. Trump Jr. said so when asked how they get financing for gold courses. "The Russians," he said. Cenk Uger has enumerated dozens of examples of Trump's corruption. Yeah, the guy is a crook. He even may have somehow strong-armed Kennedy. Trump plays hardball. Your guys are playing kickball.
Besides, singling out this one case of weirdness doesn't negate my larger point that everyone is corrupt.
A CNN review of public event listings for the Clinton Global Initiative's Annual Meeting found partnerships with at least six banks that were under investigation, involved in litigation or had been fined by government agencies and regulators at the time of the meeting.
In every case, the bank in question was listed as a sponsor of the event even after the investigations were widely reported in the media.
