I’m Aaron Glantz, investigative reporter at Reveal and the author of Homewreckers. Let’s talk about the close associates of Donald Trump — like Steve Mnuchin, Wilbur Ross, Tom Barrack, and Jared Kushner— who made billions off the housing crisis. AMA.

I’m Aaron Glantz, senior investigative reporter for Reveal and the author of Homewreckers: How a Gang of Wall Street Kingpins, Hedge Fund Magnates, Crooked Banks, and Vulture Capitalists Suckered Millions Out of Their Homes and Demolished the American Dream.

It all started with a piece on Tom Barrack Jr, Trump’s oldest friend and inauguration chairman, who used the housing bust to buy 30,000 homes. From there, I homed in on a single house: a 834-foot bungalow in South L.A, where 5 members of the Trump administration had profited off personal pain and financial dispossession. After that, I investigated Steve Mnuchin’s OneWest Bank, and then broke news on modern-day redlining in 61 cities – including Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C.

Make no mistake: Medicare for All would cut taxes for most Americans — Not only would universal healthcare reduce taxes for most people, it would also lead to the biggest take-home pay raise in a generation for most workers

Westlake Legal Group RQDjFIq7pmGCXx87xueiqoxTS5ratOlieR_S9Zt_dVo Make no mistake: Medicare for All would cut taxes for most Americans — Not only would universal healthcare reduce taxes for most people, it would also lead to the biggest take-home pay raise in a generation for most workers r/politics

Thanks for sharing this. I always thought I’d probably be a little worse off for his plan because me and my husband are doing pretty well and also I have excellent health insurance with my employer. I don’t give a shit. Medicare for all baby!

I used this for my current situation and also for a situation after I start a family. Both cases had me negative without the deductible. -$1800 currently and -$450 with a family. With the deductible it shows positive for both. I take this to mean that if I’m not going to the doctor then my expenses with this would be more. Right now I am healthy and haven’t needed to go to the doctor for anything

I don’t care at all. Public healthcare is the right move for this country. Not to mention tomorrow I could absolutely have any number of things wrong with me and have crazy insane bills. My parents are getting older and still have good health now but when my mom needs to go to the doctor and can’t because she doesn’t have money that would be a bill for me or her just not going. We need this.

Revenge porn is being used to smear and discredit a sitting Congresswoman — Katie Hill may not be a perfect victim, but posting a naked photo of her in retaliation is a rightwing smear campaign

Westlake Legal Group Mm7AaEgQuvp-kMso8tT4KKwYQTWqYW8LUZ74QP-JgP4 Revenge porn is being used to smear and discredit a sitting Congresswoman — Katie Hill may not be a perfect victim, but posting a naked photo of her in retaliation is a rightwing smear campaign r/politics

Here’s another view. I know her work fairly well and she’s an incredibly impressive politician. But she’s lost my confidence. While I don’t care about anyone’s sex life, I do care about people exploiting their interns, and I do care about whether they tell the truth.

The allegations involved 2 affairs with young staffers. Neither are proven but one looks awfully close to being proven. That’s a deal breaker for me.

Then came her initial denial which was strong, and gave me hope this was all just another idiotic right wing hoax. However now she’s issued an apology with fuzzy wording that seems to admit one of the affairs with a junior employee. That’s two strikes.

From what I’ve seen there certainly is a possibility one of the lovers or her husband are smearing her, and if there’s a crime there I hope they’re punished appropriately.

But unfortunately it being a smear and it being true can both be true.

he’s sided against 60% of the USA population

99%

Should the day ever come when Fat Joffrey and Moscow Mitch’s blind, loyal marks in flyover country and Dixie realize precisely how much they’ve been: fucked over, taken for granted, and used by the Republican party in terms of voting against their own economic interests (right to work, contraception, public education, health care)

And why? Because AbortionJesus…

Well, there should be Hell to pay. I’m not holding my breath however. The stranglehold the religious right and gun lobby has over “real” Americans is astounding. Makes me want to expat.

House Democrats say the Justice Department is orchestrating ‘political revenge’ for Trump amid reports it is opening a criminal investigation into the Mueller probe

Westlake Legal Group DX0s1zc3eBq0lp8zPw9Df19vAegAUy3_tYB_AgxeGUM House Democrats say the Justice Department is orchestrating 'political revenge' for Trump amid reports it is opening a criminal investigation into the Mueller probe r/politics

A few of Barr’s previous employers are connected to key subjects in the Mueller probe.

His financial ties to companies linked to aspects of the Russia investigation raise questions about whether he should—like his predecessor, Jeff Sessions—recuse himself.

This much is known: On Barr’s public financial disclosure report, he admits to working for a law firm that represented Russia’s Alfa Bank and for a company whose co-founders allegedly have long-standing business ties to Russia. What’s more, he received dividends from Vector Group, a holding company with deep financial ties to Russia.

Alfa Bank is controlled by the Kremlin and powerful oligarchs.

In 1995, the Soviet Union collapsed. In the vacuum of leadership – of policy – of governmental order, a few hungry souls made a mad grab for state resources. They were the original seven oligarchs, called “The Magnificient Seven.” And they were all bankers.

One of these first seven bankers, Mikhail Fridman – the founder of ALFABANK, is Semion Mogilevich’s partner.

Remember the suspicious server pings going from trump tower to Alfa Bank?

Examining records for the Trump domain, Max’s group discovered D.N.S. lookups from a pair of servers owned by Alfa Bank, one of the largest banks in Russia. Alfa Bank’s computers were looking up the address of the Trump server nearly every day. There were dozens of lookups on some days and far fewer on others, but the total number was notable: between May and September, Alfa Bank looked up the Trump Organization’s domain more than two thousand times.

And it didn’t stop there, Alfa Bank was looking for a way to establish a back channel between trump and the Kremlin.

A few weeks before Donald Trump became president, Russian banker Petr Aven, a billionaire oligarch with Moscow’s Alfa Bank, pulled aside Washington lobbyist Richard Burt at a corporate meeting in Luxembourg with a sensitive request.

Aven told Burt that “someone high in the Russian government” wanted “a communications channel between the Kremlin and the Trump Transition Team,” according to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s recently released report. Aven wanted Burt, a former ambassador who had helped Trump’s campaign, to work on setting it up.

Barr might be deeper in this than we know.

The Special Counsel investigation was an investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections and suspicious links between Trump associates and Russian officials.

Why is Barr now determined to discredit the whole investigation?
