Maxwell, the late owner of Mirror Newspapers, invested $2 million in Mr Romney's first private equity fund, which launched the controversial career in finance that the Republican presidential challenger now cites as proof of his ability to lead the US to prosperity.

He was recruited by Lyons, a late colleague of Mr Romney's at Bain & Company and one of the "Guinness Four" who were convicted in 1990 over the infamous share-trading fraud at the drinks firm. Lyons and his family invested almost $3 million in Mr Romney's fund.

Read the whole thing. Romney got his financial start from overseas millionaires, including some from El Salvador.

Pretty sure the mentioned “Robert Maxwell” is the father of today’s more recent celebrity Ghislaine Maxwell. Small world, huh?

Plus backing from the Mormon church as well; their prophesy says a Mormon will be president some day.

Although I believe some very rich people are self-made, I think that some very rich people are selected for success and are groomed by people who pull the strings for the world. Epstein wasn’t a financial genius. He was chosen to be a rich and influential guy. I don’t think Romney is a genius. I think he was chosen for a role.

<dons tinfoil hat/

That alleged human trafficking compound in New Mexico and that Mormon family in Mexico killed by cartels --> some Mormons --> trafficking --> Romney --> Maxwell (daddy) --> Maxwell (daughter) --> Epstein (who didn't kill himself) --> traffickers

/takes off tinfoil hat>

“Guinness Four”, eh? Wonder if there is a familial tie to the Guinness family which Rachel Chandler-Guinness married into?
