Bombshell book just exposed a huge Trump campaign sex scandal … Think this is juiciest part of the Trump’s Fire and Fury Tales?
Apparently, the juiciest part of the exposé is that the whole Trump family is involved in money laundering. And of course, big time.

Trump Tower meeting with Russians ‘treasonous’, Bannon says in explosive book: ‘They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV”
“Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it’s all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately,” Bannon said
Bannon hanging them out to dry here.
He also confirms my suspicions. This includes Felix Sater, a Russian business associate of President Trump, and Andrew Weissmann who is a member of Special Counsel Mueller’s team that specializes in money laundering and helped bring down Enron…
[Bannon] “You realise where this is going,” he is quoted as saying. “This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose [senior prosecutor Andrew] Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy.
President Trump said the red line would be drawn at Special Counsel Mueller looking into the Trump Empire’s finances. Why you may ask? The entire family is involved in laundering money.
We recently found out that Trump’s first international venture in Panama City is a hub for laundering money. He handed the business dealings over to Ivanka Trump and although many properties were bought the entire area is almost a ghost town. The tower stands dark as very few people live in the properties. Turns out the owners hail from colourful backgrounds including Russian gangsters, drug cartels, and people smugglers.
Rachel Maddow did a piece about a Trump Tower project in Azerbaijan. In it Ivanka Trump takes a video promoting her family’s building, but it turns out she wasn’t filming at the Trump property as it was built in a rundown location.
The Trump organization has been laundering money for a long time. Here are a few examples from The New Yorker including his Taj Mahal Casino, projects in India, Uruguay, Georgia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and China. Listen to this short NPR podcast interview where Adam Davidson explains what he uncovered while investigating Baku.
Christopher Steele has stated that Trump’s hotel and land deals with Russians need to be examined.
Read what Felix Sater, a Russian bussiness associate of the President, offered President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen. Felix Sater admits to working with the Kremlin under the guise of building the Trump Moscow Tower to help get Trump elected. Both the New York Times and the Washington Post corroborate this story.
“Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it,” Mr. Sater wrote in an email. “I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.”
“I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected,” Mr. Sater wrote.
Back in the 90s Felix Sater was caught up in a massive stock scam and flipped on mob families in New York. Guess who flipped him? He’s on Special Counsel Mueller’s team – Andrew Weissmann.
Felix Sater attended Trump’s invite-only victory party to celebrate his presidential victory. Although Trump has tried to distance himself from Sater due to his colourful past, I find it very peculiar that he was allowed into an invite-only event at the Midtown Hilton. Moreover, in July of 2016 we know he attended a secret meeting at Trump Tower, no one knows what was discussed. We know Felix Sater has been ready to work with Special Counsel Mueller’s team. Paul Wood, World Affairs correspondent for the BBC, wrote the original article for The Spectator.
Here’s another example to illustrate my point. Russian Oligarch Rybolovlev bought a Trump property in Palm Beach for $100 million, making it the most expensive property in America. Here’s the kicker – after buying it Rybolovlev tore it down even though he had just paid $60 million over market price.
Where this becomes even more peculiar is that the Russian oligarch’s private yacht and plane were in the same vicinity as Trump or his associates during the campaign on several separate occasions. For example, Rybolovlev’s plane landed in North Carolina 2 hours before Trump made his stop there for a campaign rally. Rybolovlev’s yacht was in Croatia last summer where Ivanka and Kushner were vacationing. Back in March while Rybolovlev’s yacht was anchored in the British Virgin Islands, Robert Mercer’s yacht was anchored next to it.

Trump just fired back at Bannon with a humiliating official statement
After excerpts of a new book on Trump Fire and Fury leaked this morning, revealing that white nationalist Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon shivved President Trump in the back in an interview with the book’s author Michael Wolff, the President spewed forth an excoriating disavowal of his erstwhile BFF.
Trump totally torches Bannon: “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind.” Full statement: pic.twitter.com/ElhChPiOx8

In the interview, Bannon calls the June 9, 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Kremlin intelligence agents, “treasonous,” and said there was no way Junior didn’t walk the Russian spies upstairs to Papa.
Bannon and Trump two maintained a semblance of closeness even after Bannon was forced to resign from the White House in August, with the arrival of new chief of staff, General John Kelly.
Paul Manafort had replaced Corey Lewandowski, who was caught on tape physically assaulting a woman journalist from FOX News.
Once referred to as “President” Bannon for his outsized sway over Trump’s white nationalist views, the accused wife beater parted ways with the President when he supported credibly accused child molester Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate primary.
Bannon’s credibility as a fascist kingmaker took a massive blow after Moore’s loss to Democrat Doug Jones. Trump also took a big hit.
Now, they’re turning on each other.
Though Bannon may think he’s saving himself from being collateral damage from Special Prosecutor Mueller’s Russia investigation by throwing the President under the bus, in fact he’s proving he knew Trump was treasonous all along and worked with him anyway.
He must not know that aiding and abetting treason is a crime unto itself.
Bombshell book just exposed a huge Trump campaign sex scandal
Before embattled Steve Bannon and indicted Paul Manafort, Trump’s first campaign chairman was Corey Lewandowski, who was ultimately fired for, among other things, physically assaulting a female FOX News journalist.
According to a scorching new book on the Trump debacle Fire and Fury by well-known journalist and author Michael Wolff, 44-year-old Lewandowski was having an on-and-off extra-marital affair with Donald Trump’s right-hand woman, then-28-year-old Hope Hicks.
Apparently, Trump himself had some colorful words to describe the liaison.

Today, MSNBC’s Chris Jansing read an excerpt of the book to Politico‘s Josh Dawsey:
Hicks sat in Trump Tower with Trump and his sons, worried about Lewandowski’s treatment in the press and wondering aloud how she might help him. Trump, who otherwise seemed to treat Hicks in a protective and even paternal way, looked up and said, ‘Why? You’ve already done enough for him. you’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have’ sending Hicks running from the room
According to Fire and Fury, “[Hope] Hicks was in fact thought of as Trump’s real daughter, while Ivanka was thought of as his real wife.”
One can only deduce Trump felt a protective jealousy over Hicks’ and Lewandowski’s affair. That does not excuse his characteristic degradation of women, including those closest to him.
The revelation comes as just one of many scandalous exposes the book has catapulted into the public consciousness today.
When MSNBC journalist Katy Tur’s book Unbelievable came out, she mentioned that a higher-up married Trump official had essentially propositioned her on more than one occasion. Many speculated she meant Lewandowski.
As if Lewandowski’s alleged adultery were not bad enough on its face, his wife of 13 years, Allison, is the widow of Lewandowski’s best friend who died in the hijacked United 175 flight that crashed into the South Tower of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
The more details leak on the putrid characters that infest Trump’s inner circle, the more we see a reflection of the President himself.
The President in turn reflects on the state of our own democracy, which has run off the rails.
We must reclaim it this year and cement it, so the generations that follow never have to face such rankly unfit “leadership” again.
MSNBC’s Katy Tur just revealed the sordid details of how Trump seduced friends’ wives
MSNBC’s Katy Tur — who herself covered the shady behavior of Trump’s inner circle in Unbelievable, her chronicle of life on the road with his 2016 campaign — highlighted a particularly startling passage in Fire and Fury and just shared it on Twitter.
From Fire and Fury, here’s Trump on his friends’ wives –> pic.twitter.com/9imNBaSqm1
— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) January 3, 2018
Tur’s slapdash strokes with a green highlighter offer a visual representation of her shock as she read a description of Trump seducing his friends’ wives in the most monstrously insidious of ways.
According to Wolff’s book, Trump would put a wife on speaker phone, call the husband into his office, and proceed to question his “friend” about his sex life with his wife, his interest in other women, and his willingness to come over to Trump’s office to sleep with prostitutes, in an effort to sow division in the marriage, so he could make his move.
This account jibes with the harrowing story one of the President’s sexual assault accusers, Jill Harth, gave of him forcibly kissing her while her romantic and business partner, a business associate of Trump’s, was in a nearby room.
Every word of Wolff’s book only confirms what we already knew.
The man currently at the helm of our country is a craven, psychopathic criminal who should immediately be escorted from the Oval Office never to return.
Bombshell book just revealed that Trump thinks of Ivanka as his real wife
The entire country is abuzz over the newly released excerpts from Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by journalist Michael Wolff. The bombshell exposé details the chaos inside the reality television star’s chaotic administration, including all of the salacious infighting and betrayals that have destabilized the Oval Office since Trump first stumbled in.
Already numerous explosive passages have been revealed, ranging from former White House Chief Strategist saying Donald Trump Junior committed treason by meeting with Russians in Trump Tower, to sillier but no less juicy details like Ivanka Trump revealing the truth behind her father’s peculiar hair. Now, a new tidbit has leaked, and it’s absolutely disgusting if true.
Newsweek reports that the relationships between Trump and the women in his life are stranger than the president would probably want the public to know. Reportedly, Trump views former model and current White House Communications Director Hope Hicks as a daughter figure and views his actual daughter Ivanka as a wife.
“[Hope] Hicks was in fact thought of as Trump’s real daughter, while Ivanka was thought of as his real wife,” writes Wolff in his book.
It’s a disturbing allegation but one that’s not completely outside the realm of possibility given the president’s extensive sordid history of overtly sexual comments about his daughter. It’s long been a running joke that Trump lusts after Ivanka, but one that perhaps deserves more consideration given Wolff’s allegations.
If so, it’s just the latest example of sexual deviance from a man who has admitted to sexual assault on tape and been accused of raping a 13-year-old girl. Donald Trump is a creature without anything resembling a moral spine, who goes after whatever his shriveled little soul desires. He should be lurking in a sewer somewhere, not in the Oval Office.
A CNN video recaps some of the worst Ivanka comments Trump has made:
Ivanka Trump just revealed her dad’s biggest kept secrets about his hair
New York Magazine published a bombshell article today from Michael Wolff that has the world salivating over the previously undisclosed details of the post-election Trump campaign’s surprise and panic over their unexpected victory.
The article is chock-filled with salacious tidbits and damning character portraits of the then President-elect’s inner circle but buried within the article is a detailed account that you won’t want to miss, a description from Ivanka Trump of the process that goes into creating the sculptural wonder that is the hairdo of Donald Trump.
The passage begins as an analysis of the relationship between the Presidential daughter and her dotard father that is less than flattering to both parties.
“Ivanka maintained a relationship with her father that was in no way conventional. She was a helper not just in his business dealings, but in his marital realignments. If it wasn’t pure opportunism, it was certainly transactional. For Ivanka, it was all business — building the Trump brand, the presidential campaign, and now the White House. She treated her father with a degree of detachment, even irony, going so far as to make fun of his comb-over to others.”
The stylish daughter’s mocking of her daddy’s fuddy-duddy appearance almost humanizes Ivanka, but the most fascinating details are still to come:
“She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray. The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color.”
Once the revulsion from the mental imagery slips away, there is so much to parse here: The intricate “mechanics” of tending to the arid landscape of Trump’s scalp, the impatience-determined tangerine effect, and, of course, the “stiffening spray” so necessary in a man of Trump’s age and condition.
While Wolff’s journalistic kudos may be triggered by the more mundane details of political infighting, treachery, incompetence, and chaos that the unprepared campaign fell into in the aftermath of an election that they did not expect to win, the revelation of the recipe for Trump’s extravagant coiffure surely deserves a special investigative journalism award all on its own.
Twitter is absolutely losing it over the explosive revelations in today’s bombshell book reveal
Today, the nation was rocked by the stunning revelations from upcoming book Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House, which revealed not only the details about the dysfunction and chaos that accompany Trump wherever he goes but also shared numerous embarrassing tidbits on a host of subjects, ranging from accusations about who knew what when in the Trump-Russia investigation to the President’s personal hygiene.
The leaked excerpts have prompted a major feud between President Trump and his once-close advisor Steven Bannon and a series of furious denials and rejections by a humiliated White House – and have proven to be ample fodder for the comedians and cynical commentators of Twitter.
NBC News reporter confronts Sarah Sanders: ‘Should Americans be concerned about the president’s mental fitness?’
The White House held its first press conference since President Donald Trump laid into Steve Bannon for comments in a new book about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with Russian officials being “treasonous” on Wednesday afternoon.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, however, was not at all interested in answering questions about Bannon’s comments or Trump’s fiery response, in which he said Bannon had “lost his mind.”
“This book is filled with false and misleading accounts from individuals who have no access or influence with the White House,” Sanders said.
Given that mental capabilities were on the table, NBC’s Peter Alexander asked if Americans should “be concerned about the president’s mental fitness, that he appears to be speaking so lightly about threats regarding a nuclear button.”
Sanders deflected the question about Trump’s latest Twitter attacks towards North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, in which he alluded to nuclear war.
“The president and the people of this country should be concerned about the mental fitness of the leader of North Korea,” Sanders said. “He’s made repeated threats. He’s tested missiles time and time again for years.”
Another reporter asked if it was wise then for Trump to be taunting North Korean leader Kim Jong-un about the size of his nuclear button if he was so unstable.
“You just said that people should question the mental fitness of Kim Jong-un,” the reporter said. “So then isn’t it dangerous for the president to be taunting him on Twitter?”
Sanders said she didn’t think Trump’s needling of Jong-un on Twitter — calling the dictator of the dangerous pariah state “little rocket man” — was taunting.
“I don’t think it is taunting to stand up for the people of this country,” Sanders said.
