You got that right…

No more bluff 'n roll - very damning discovery.

Tonight I took another look at the CNN article above that revealed how Viktor Vekselberg, a Russian oligarch, used his company, Renova, to funnel payments to Michael Cohen. This caught my eye:

Lamesa Investments Ltd, an affiliate of Renova, acquired a large stake in the Bank of Cyprus at the same time Wilbur Ross, then a private equity investor, made a capital infusion into the then-struggling bank. Lamesa now holds a 9.2% stake in the Bank of Cyprus. Ross resigned from his position as vice chairman of the bank after he was confirmed as Trump’s commerce secretary.

So, let’s get this straight. The same Kremlin-connected Russian oligarch who paid $500,000 to Trump’s lawyer also teamed up with the man who is now Trump’s commerce secretary to buy the biggest bank in Cyprus – a country whose banks are well known for laundering Russian money and the country through which Trump’s campaign manager laundered his Ukrainian money.
