Lame, misleading headline.

Not surprising, considering the poster.

@#1 ... The Russkies got to RBG. ...

Not really.

Justice Ginsburg is allowing Pres Trump's defense team adequate time to prepare their rebuttal. Fairly standard practice.

Something to mull over whilst we wait...

BaFin to Deepen Deutsche Bank Money Laundering Investigation (Feb 2019)
www.financemagnates.com

...Deutsche Bank released a statement on Friday saying that BaFin, the German financial regulator, has extended the remit of an independent auditor examining the lender's role in the Danske Bank money laundering scandal.

The case stems from an ongoing investigation into the Danish bank's Estonian division.

After a whistle-blower sounded the alarm about the activity of certain customers, most of whom were from Russia and the former Soviet Union, in late 2018, it became apparent that Danske Bank's Tallinn-based operations were doing business with some less than scrupulous individuals.

It is alleged that the bank laundered around $225 billion from 2007 to 2014. If that is the case, it would potentially be the largest instance of money laundering ever uncovered.

Deutsche Bank falls into the mix as it acted as Danske Bank's main correspondent bank. According to the Financial Times, the German bank was responsible for facilitating $180 billion in suspicious transactions....


Deutsche Bank Offices Are Raided In Money Laundering Probe (Nov 2018)
www.npr.org

...In recent years, Deutsche Bank has been in the news not only for its prominence in the Panama Papers, but also for its ties to President Trump, in a tumultuous relationship that goes back some 20 years.

Trump and the bank once sued each other after he failed to repay a $300 million loan. And the author and reporter Luke Harding has described a "shuffle of money" between the bank's dealings with figures in Russia and its business with Trump. ...

In other words, making sure they have enough rope.
Sensible jurisprudence.

Trump is an innocent man an not a complete POS; case solved!!!

I didn't expect myself to agree with this decision. As much as I'd like to see Trump and his whole clan eviscerated in the public square for their years of dealing from the bottom of the deck, this brief delay is a small price to pay for such an important precedent ~ for the innocent and guilty alike.

And I wouldn't mind seeing the cuffs slapped in a few people at Deutsch Bank either.

I see that at least two of Trumps personal bankers have gotten out ahead of the situation and hanged themselves.

" Bowers isn't the first Trump-connected Deutsche exec to commit suicide. In 2014, Deutsche derivatives analyst William S. Broeksmit, who reportedly had links to Trump and Russia, hung himself from a dog leash at his home in London."

Deutsche Bank faces action over $20bn Russian money-laundering scheme
www.theguardian.com

...Deutsche is also under scrutiny in Washington over its financial dealings with Donald Trump. On 15 April, Democrats from the House intelligence and financial services committees issued a subpoena, demanding the bank provide documents about its lending to the president.

Over two decades, Trump borrowed more than $2bn from Deutsche. In 2008, he defaulted on a $45m loan repayment and sued the bank. Its private wealth division in New York subsequently loaned Trump a further $300m " a move that bemused insiders and which has yet to be fully explained....



Gee, I wish I could get a bank to loan me more money after I default on a prior loan with the bank...

You and me a a few billion other peoples!

You need better lawyers and better lies.

You ( and I) are not Good at lying about our financial worth. I am a terrible liar And I cannot even afford a lawyer.

But.

Poor old Nazi Nulli is gonna hang himself too when he realizes this is just a short delay. The courts will not prevent Congress from being able to do its duty of oversight with the legal subpoenas for documents it needs. Those records will be released to Congress. And eventually to the public. And we will find out once again that the liberals were right all along.

It's just a matter of Time now.

Just like there were NO weapons of mass destruction in Iraq Trump will not find that his weapons of mass distraction will work in the End either.

And the End if Humpy is near. And. There was no choice. Thanks to the founding fathers.

It's just our Democracy in action . And Democracy, because it is made up of The People, is very messy!!

It's just a Matter if Time now.

And while Time may heal all wounds. It also wounds all heels.
