Natalia Veselnitskaya, Bill Clinton, John Podesta, Hillary Clinton, Alexander Downer, Ed Krassenstein, and James Comey. What do these individuals all have in common?

The two most obvious answers:

– They all have connections to the DNC and the Clinton family.

– They all have a special interest or involvement in the Trump-Russia Witch Hunt.

 

There is another similarity however, a relationship forged in searing greed.

A common interest that ties the others together.

A contract with the devil.

 

 

MONEY LAUNDERING is an integral part of many illicit financial activities.

Transnational criminal organizations, terrorist groups, Internet fraudsters and other criminals move billions of $ each year through the international banking system to conceal the origin of funds.

 

The typical money laundering scheme involves 3 phases.

Placement – Where the illicit funds enter the financial system.

Layering – The most involved phase attempts to conceal the funds’ origin through complex transactions.

Integration – Getting the money to the crooks.

 

July 17, 2012 – HSBC Holdings plc, a British multinational banking and financial services holding company and the world’s 7th largest bank was discovered to be involved in a $1.6 Trillion global money laundering and tax evasion scheme. [1]

HSBC had helped Iran, terrorists, corrupt politicians, and Mexican drug cartels hide their ill-gotten gains from authorities.

Between 2007 and 2008, HSBC’s Mexican affiliate channeled $7 Billion worth of narcotics trafficking proceeds into the US.

March 4, 2013 – Former US Attorney James Comey was appointed Director of HSBC.

Exactly 7 months later, Barack Obama appointed James Comey to Director of the FBI. [2]

Names of the criminals remained shrouded in secrecy.

Then in 2015, everything changed.

The Panama Papers – 11.5 million documents from the law firm Mossack Fonseca that detail financial information for more than 214,488 offshore shell corporations were leaked.

As revealed by whistle blower John Cruz and documented by Jerome Corsi, numerous shell corporations owned by the Clinton’s and connected to HSBC were used to launder hundreds of millions of dollars in criminal cash.

 

HSBC case blows lid off Clintons’ offshore empire NEW YORK – The arrest of the head of global foreign exchange cash trading at HSBC bank may shed new light on suspicions the Clinton Foundation has been involved in illegal offshore money-laundering. [3]

Another bank involved in the scheme was Westpac Banking Corporation, an Australian bank and financial-services provider headquartered in Westpac Place, Sydney. [4]

Most people know Alexander Downer as the Australian diplomat whose tip about George Papadopoulos ignited the Russia Witch Hunt.

What most people don’t know is that he worked for Westpac, Merchant Bankers Capital, and Huawei when they were deemed a security threat.

 

In late 2016, federal agents raided the Fort Meyers homes of resistance icons and internet fraudsters Ed and Brian Krassenstein.

The brothers ran websites dedicated to High Yield Investment Scams, identity theft, bank fraud, and money laundering.

Feds Seized a Fortune From #Resistance Icons Accused of Boosting Online Ponzi Schemes Homeland Security investigator alleged ‘reasonable cause’ to believe Ed and Brian Krassenstein illegally hawked investment scams. [5]

When Russian tax auditor Sergei Magnitsky uncovered a $230 Million tax fraud scheme involving Hermitage Capital Investments of which HSBC was a trustee, he was arrested by corrupt Russian authorities and later died in custody.

The dirty cash snaked its way around the globe through banks and shell corporations in a sophisticated layering scheme.

About $1.9 Million was traced to a company called Prevezon Holdings.

 

Prevezon then used additional shell corporations to purchase high-end New York City real estate.

The purchase of high-value assets like property, cars and jewelry is a common money laundering integration technique.

 

When Prevezon came under litigation by the US government, Russia sent attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya to the US who then retained the law firm Baker & Hostetler, LLP. [6]

 

According to Glenn Simpson’s sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Baker & Hostetler at the direction of Natalia Veselnitskaya, retained the infamous firm Fusion GPS to “assist” with the Pevezon litigation. [7]

 

 

Another $7.5 million from the giant fraud was traced to a UK bank account belonging to a Russian investment firm controlled by billionaire oligarch Mikhail Prokhorov.

That firm, Renaissance Capital Investment, employs a string of FSB agents.

 

When Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State, she was forced to disclose her finances.

Buried in her personal disclosure was a 2010 half-million dollar “speech payment” to Bill Clinton from Renaissance Capital. [8]

The Office of Government Ethics revealed additional suspicious payments to Mr. Clinton.

Beginning in 2005, a Canadian company, “The Power Within, Inc.” began making six-figure “speech payments” to Mr. Clinton totaling nearly $4 Million.

 

The Clintons’ Canadian speeches: Who paid them – and how much Bill and Hillary Clinton have been paid a total of $12.4-million (U.S.) for giving speeches in Canada since leaving the White House in 2000. [9]

The shady company which specialized in “high energy motivational speech seminars” existed for only a few years before it suddenly vanished, shutting down their website and ripping off local Canadian contractors.
In the television series Breaking Bad, the protagonists laundered proceeds from the production of methamphetamine through a nail salon and a car wash, combining the illicit cash with legitimate business funds, a typical money laundering integration scheme.

 

The business records for The Power Within have been scrubbed, but a 2015 US Department of State FOIA release revealed that the seminars were sponsored by global money laundering tycoon HSBC. [10]

Suspiciously, Bill Clinton was not present for all of the Power Within events he was supposedly being paid to speak at, nor was he listed as a speaker.

 

The indictment of Paul Manafort for money laundering, tax evasion and failure to register FARA was praised by the left as “evidence” of Trump-Russia collusion.

“Company B” in that indictment was later revealed as the Podesta Group.

 

Organized criminal groups historically rely on numerous criminal acts to support their existence and often divide the responsibility for committing these acts among their members and crews.

There are additional activities that may be a part of this alleged transnational criminal organization, this is by no means an exhaustive list.

Please have a look at this thread discussing the law firm Perkins Coie [11]:

 

It is impossible to deny that this activity has all the warning signs of a money laundering scheme.

Whether the suspects are working together directly or merely concurrently to obstruct justice and avoid prosecution remains unclear.
