President Donald Trump dropped a bombshell this week on America and the mainstream media barely said a word about it.
The president said that he would be disappearing for a while because he has rich and powerful enemies that were not pleased with what he is going to be doing.
“So, I have a lot of enemies out there. This may be the last time you’ll see me for a while. A lot of very, very rich enemies, but they are not happy with what I’m doing,” the president said last week during a speech on his executive order on prescription drugs, CNN reported.
“But I think we have one chance to do it, and no other president’s going to do it,” he said during the speech.
The president could have been talking about pharmaceutical executives who will be furious at the executive order he signed, but many on Twitter believed it could be something else.
“Somethings about to happen,” one Twitter user said, citing examples. “Trump needs to be in a tightly controlled environment while whatever this is goes down. A lot of people have access to the White House that will NOT have access to him at Bedminster.
“The Optima FBI raids in Cleveland and Miami 3 days ago sent a CLEAR SIGNAL to the President’s enemies that yes indeed, he and Barr and Rudy are going to see this through. They are ::really going to do it**. They have not been bluffing,” he said.
“Those FBI raids in Cleveland & Miami were directly linked to the Ukrainian corruption that caused at least $6 billion in US taxpayer money sent to Ukraine to disappear. The two offices that were raided were involved in a massive amount of money laundering.
“It turns out that two of the Ukrainian oligarch’s that ran PrivatBank, a large bank that got $1.8 billion in US aid and ‘lost’ it, laundered hundreds of millions of dollars through over a dozen shell companies & then used the laundered $ to purchase real estate in Cleveland,” he said.
As the president gave his speech the Department of Justice filed a brief to seize properties purchased by funneled money from the Ukraine PrivatBank.
The United States filed two civil forfeiture complaints today in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida alleging that commercial real estate in Louisville, Kentucky, and Dallas, Texas, both acquired using funds misappropriated from PrivatBank in Ukraine, are subject to forfeiture based on violations of federal money laundering statutes.
Acting Assistant Attorney General Brian C. Rabbitt of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Ariana Fajardo Orshan for the Southern District of Florida, U.S. Attorney Justin E. Herdman for the Northern District of Ohio, and Special Agent in Charge Eric B. Smith of the FBI’s Cleveland Field Office made the announcement.
The complaints allege that Ihor Kolomoisky and Gennadiy Boholiubov, who owned PrivatBank, one of the largest banks in Ukraine, embezzled and defrauded the bank of billions of dollars. The two obtained fraudulent loans and lines of credit from approximately 2008 through 2016, when the scheme was uncovered, and the bank was nationalized by the National Bank of Ukraine. The complaints allege that they laundered a portion of the criminal proceeds using an array of shell companies’ bank accounts, primarily at PrivatBank’s Cyprus branch, before they transferred the funds to the United States. As alleged in the complaint, the loans were rarely repaid except with more fraudulently obtained loan proceeds.
Could this be what we have all been waiting for? Could it be something else? Time will tell but the bomb is about to be dropped on some of the “rich and powerful” enemies.
