    How to explian a solid Russian connection prosecutor Robert Mueller "missed"? Course he is busy staging useless midnight raids into people's homes. Maybe it's b/c it involves Democrats, and a House intel security breach? Mueller seems to be studiously avoiding the shocking details as Awan IT security breach details pour into The DC Swamp. The case implicates dozens of Democrat members of Congress in abuse of office, conspicy to defraud the United States, govt fraud, graft, wire-fraud, espionage, treason, bank fraud, money laundering, tax evasion......and a theft ring run out of the House Democrat Caucus. AND..... (drum roll, please)...... it...

    A former US secret service agent has pleaded guilty to stealing over $800,000 worth of bitcoin during an investigation into online drug marketplace Silk Road. Shaun Bridges, 33, appeared in federal court in San Francisco and admitted to money laundering and obstruction of justice.

Ross Ulbricht, Silk Road’s creator, who authorities say used the alias Dread Pirate Roberts, was sentenced to life in prison after a federal...

    At a hearing today, witnesses will testify that Fusion GPS, an organization behind an infamous dossier pumping the Russia-Trump collusion story, is a highly paid smear-for-hire operation in violation of international laws. At a hearing this morning, Senate Judiciary members will receive testimony that Fusion GPS helped advocate the interests of corrupt Russian and Venezuelan officials while hiding its foreign work from federal authorities. Many in the media have focused on whether Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort would testify publicly at the hearing.

    A new bill seeks to track your money and assets incessantly, will enjoin any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of DHS, and would steal all of your assets — including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies — should you fail to report funds when traveling with over $10,000. Under the guise of combating money laundering, Senate Bill 1241, “Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017,” ramps up regulation of digital currency and other autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the State’s most nefarious, despised...

    The Federal Reserve has fined Germany’s largest bank $41 million for failure to maintain controls against money laundering in its U.S. operations. The U.S. regulators announced the penalty against Deutsche Bank on Tuesday, citing “unsafe and unsound practices.” The global bank also agreed to an order requiring it to improve oversight by senior management in complying with anti-money-laundering laws in the U.S. operations. The action follows $629 million in penalties levied against Deutsche Bank in January by New York state and British regulators for lapses in controls that allowed wealthy Russians to allegedly launder about $10 billion in illicit funds...

    When President Donald Trump angrily tweeted earlier this month that there was wiretapping going on in Trump Tower, he was not mistaken, as it turns out. Between 2011 and 2013, the FBI had a court-approved warrant to monitor a Russian money-laundering ring that was operating out of unit 63A in Trump Tower, just three floors below the real estate mogul's gilded penthouse, reported ABC News. The federal investigation led to an indictment of 30 suspects, many who whom were captured during a raid on their swanky Manhattan hideout, but the alleged mastermind of the criminal organization, notorious Russian mafia boss...

    The tiny Pacific island of Nauru has spent weeks completely cut off from the outside world after its telecommunications network collapsed. Its isolation is so complete that no one is even sure who the country's president is any more. Nauru, an isolated speck in the southwest Pacific with a population of 12,000, is in a "critical situation", according to the last message received by the outside world. That came via an address given three weeks ago by the man last believed to be running the country, President Bernard Dowiyogo, details of which were given on Friday by Radio Australia....

King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.
