Morning

Not sure if there is some tech difficulty with the usual Ask A Vet blog for today, thought I'd put up the stub just in case

Hope all is well at the House of Tri.

good morning! I hope Tri is ok...

I was definitely surprised to see this stub here, considering TriSec is our most reliable blogger. I hope all is well. Even if the internet eats his post, he generally puts up a stub.

Le Boom.

Ms. Veselnitskaya was charged by federal prosecutors in New York with seeking to thwart a Justice Department civil fraud investigation into money laundering that involved an influential Russian businessman and his investment firm.

The case was not directly related to the Trump Tower meeting. But a federal indictment returned in Manhattan seemed to confirm that Ms. Veselnitskaya had deep ties to senior Russian government officials.

The indictment charges that after the Justice Department asked the Russian government to assist its investigation, the Russian government refused, responding with a letter that purported to exonerate Russian officials and the firm’s personnel.

and from WaPo:

Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. and others at Trump Tower in Manhattan on June 9, 2016, represented Prevezon Holdings in a civil case in which the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan sought millions of dollars in forfeiture from the company and others. The department had alleged in a civil complaint that a Russian criminal organization ran an elaborate tax refund scheme, stealing the identities of targeted companies and filing sham lawsuits to incur fake losses for refund purposes.

Those involved made about $230 million in tax refunds, prosecutors said, and filtered the money through shell companies and eventually into Prevezon, a Cyprus-based real estate corporation. Prevezon, prosecutors said, laundered the funds into real estate, including by investing in high end commercial property and luxury apartments in Manhattan.

The parent company of the victim firms hired attorneys to investigate after learning of the sham lawsuits, including Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, and they uncovered the fraud scheme, in which Russian government officials were complicit, prosecutors said.


Cypress, real estate.... hmmm

Feel like everyone is just holding their breath for the double horror of a Stephen Miller "speech" and the tRashhole.

And Stephen Miller will be writing tonight's speech so it should be racist and ugly like him.

Oh, dear.

It's Tuesday, isn't it?

I'm sorry - this new schedule at work is throwing me for a loop. Tuesday is now my Monday, so things have been off-kilter.

However, I did post not one, but TWO nutritious blogs over the weekend.

Heh. Wait for it.
