As you all know, yesterday Donald Trump warned Bob Mueller about investigating his personal finances, and suggested that there’s a red line there. He seemed to threaten Mueller by suggesting that he could be fired for doing so.
🚨 Bloomberg: Mueller expands Russia investigation to include Trump's business transactions https://t.co/sbJM1eRUgF— Bradd Jaffy (@BraddJaffy) July 20, 2017
Bloomberg is digging into a lot of transactions that have roused a lot of suspicion, and seems to be looking exactly where Rachel Maddow pointed us to a few months ago in a report that’s been largely forgotten:
FBI investigators and others are looking at Russian purchases of apartments in Trump buildings, Trump’s involvement in a controversial SoHo development with Russian associates, the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow and Trump’s sale of a Florida mansion to a Russian oligarch in 2008, the person said.
The follow-the-money trail here was actually set in place by Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who — you guessed it — was fired earlier this year.
Is that going to get Mueller fired? If so, it might finally force the Republican party into action.
