It’s Monday.

President Trump has tweeted 9 14 times so far.

Before Monday’s tweets let’s review Saturday and Sunday with Trump’s tweets.

Saturday President Trump tweeted 8 times and re-tweeted 11 times.

The highlight from Saturday.

He weighs-in on the abortion debate.

As The New York Times explains eight states: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, Utah, have all passed restrictions on Abortions.

Alabama goes the furthest with legislators voting earlier last week to ban abortions in nearly all cases.

The tweets from President Trump came at 11:37 p.m. on Saturday.

On Sunday President Trump tweeted 17 times and re-tweeted 2 times.

He responded to Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) who tweeted that based on his reading of the Mueller Report, based on pertinent statements and testimony, he believes that President Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct.

Amash has not responded to President Trump tweets, at least he has not responded with a tweet.

As a Reminder.

During testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on May 1st, Attorney General William Barr, told Senator and Presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA), that he did not review the underlying evidence before reaching the conclusion that President Trump would not be charged with obstruction of justice, because the evidence wasn’t sufficient enough to show obstruction.

Based on his testimony many wondered if Barr even read the Mueller Report.

Later on Sunday President Trump threatened Iran.

Less than an hour after threatening the end of Iran, the President bemoaned Fox News.

Opinion: This is not normal, that can’t be said enough….

Onward to Monday’s tweets.

1. The Failing New York Times (it will pass away when I leave office in 6 years)…WRONG! It is because I didn’t need money.

2. Fake Media…(because their sources don’t even exist)……


4. But where did he get all of that cash? Could it be Russia?

5. Fake News!

6. Deleted Tweet.

7. Quote from Fox & Friends.

8. Why are the Democrats not looking into all of the crimes committed by Crooked Hillary and the phony Russia Investigation?

9. China wants Sleepy Joe BADLY!

On Sunday the New York Times reported that, “Anti-money-laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank recommended in 2016 and 2017 that multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by Donald J. Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, be reported to a federal financial-crimes watchdog.”

According to the New York Times finance editor David Enrich some of the transactions that “set off alerts in a computer system designed to detect illicit activity,” involved President Trump’s now-defunct foundation.

This is according to five current and former bank employees, “who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes.”

Enrich goes on to explain that even though these transactions might have triggered the anti-money laundering review it does not mean these red flags, “raised by employees do not necessarily mean the transactions were improper. Banks sometimes opt not to file suspicious activity reports if they conclude their employees’ concerns are unwarranted.”

He adds, “former Deutsche Bank employees said the decision not to report the Trump and Kushner transactions reflected the bank’s generally lax approach to money laundering laws. The employees — most of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to preserve their ability to work in the industry — said it was part of a pattern of the bank’s executives rejecting valid reports to protect relationships with lucrative clients.”

Tammy McFadden a former anti-money laundering specialist for D.B., who reviewed some of the transactions, explained “you present them with everything, and you give them a recommendation, and nothing happens,” she added, “It’s the D.B. way. They are prone to discounting everything.”

McFadden was fired last year after she raised concerns about the bank’s practices, since her termination from the company “she has filed complaints with the Securities and Exchange Commission and other regulators about the bank’s anti-money-laundering enforcement.”

Enrich gives an example of a red flag writing, “In the summer of 2016, Deutsche Bank’s software flagged a series of transactions involving the real estate company of Mr. Kushner, now a senior White House adviser.”

According to the article McFadden said that she “had reviewed the transactions and found that money had moved from Kushner Companies to Russian individuals. She concluded that the transactions should be reported to the government — in part because federal regulators had ordered Deutsche Bank, which had been caught laundering billions of dollars for Russians, to toughen its scrutiny of potentially illegal transactions.”

She said that after she drafted her suspicious activity report, that while typically such a report and the complied documents would be reviewed by “a team of anti-money laundering experts who are independent of the business line in which the transactions originated,” that in this reports case, “It went to managers in New York who were part of the private bank, which caters to the ultrawealthy. They felt Ms. McFadden’s concerns were unfounded and opted not to submit the report to the government.”

Spokeswoman for D.B., Kerrie McHugh said in a statement that the anti-money laundering program “requires sophisticated transaction screening technology as well as a trained group of individuals who can analyze the alerts generated by that technology both thoroughly and efficiently,” she went on to say that, “at no time was an investigator prevented from escalating activity identified as potentially suspicious. Furthermore, the suggestion that anyone was reassigned or fired in an effort to quash concerns relating to any client is categorically false.”

Spokeswoman for the Trump Organization Amanda Miller told the New York Times, “We have no knowledge of any ‘flagged’ transactions with Deutsche Bank.” She said the Trump Organization currently has “no operating accounts with Deutsche Bank.” Miller did not responded when asked if other Trump entities had accounts with D.B..

Kushner Companies spokeswoman Karen Zabarsky said, “Any allegations regarding Deutsche Bank’s relationship with Kushner Companies which involved money laundering is completely made up and totally false. The New York Times continues to create dots that just don’t connect.”

Enrich offered thoughts on Monday morning via Twitter.

*according to Trump Twitter Archive, Enrich is correct, this is President Trump’s first mention of D.B. in tweet form.

As Enrich notes in his article “Congressional and state authorities are investigating that relationship and have demanded the bank’s records related to the president, his family and their companies. Subpoenas from two House committees seek, among other things, documents related to any suspicious activities detected in Mr. Trump’s personal and business bank accounts since 2010, according to a copy of a subpoena included in a federal court filing.”

The President along with his family have sued D.B., in order to prevent the bank from complying with the Congressional subpoenas.


If President Trump didn’t borrow money or whatnot from D.B., what exactly is he preventing from being handed over to the Congressional Committees?

As to the other tweets, I have zero idea what tweets he felt were missing, nor why he deleted the tweet that said as much.

Why are the Democrats not looking into Hillary Clinton, well, in fairness, that’s the Republicans job and has been for twenty years.

So far the President’s Twitter nicknames for Democratic Presidential nominee hopefuls.

Alfred E. Newman =’s Mayor of South Bend Indiana Pete Buttigieg.

Crazy Bernie =’s Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT)

Sleepy Joe or Sleepy Creepy Joe =’s Former Vice President and Senator Joe Biden.

10. The United States will not stand idly by as Cuba continues to subvert democracy in the Americas!

11. The Fake News put out a typically false statement…

12. Iran will call us if and when they are ever ready

13. Rally Time…

14. Complete and Total Endorsement.

On May 9th, right before stating that former Secretary of State John Kerry, should be prosecuted for violating the Logan Act, President Trump said, he’d like to see Iran call…

I have attempted to track reports that President Trump calls “fake,” regarding America reaching out to Iran and came up empty, any suggestions are welcome in the comment section.

Programming alert, there will maybe, most likely, probably be, a thread posted for the campaign rally from PA. (maybe…)

This post will be updated within reason. 

This is an Open Thread.
