PLEASE NOTE: THIS STORY IS A WORK OF FICTION
I started today’s posting with a disclaimer. My first real job was in banking although the transactions I dealt with were much more pedestrian and never reached nine figures left of the decimal point. The plot is ripped straight from today’s headlines. My hope is that my financial expertise and education may help many of my readers to understand just how feasible international money laundering transactions are if you have a few unscrupulous characters and banks involved. If everyone involved stays quiet it is difficult to expose unless you have a talented team trying to unravel it. Say a team like Robert Mueller has assembled. Please join me and read on.

This is another Sunday article where it is impossible to determine the big story of the week. I began penning this early Friday afternoon, just hours after the Neil Gorsuch was confirmed as the 113th Supreme Court Justice in American history.

Please note: This article is being written in late August for publication in early September. The longer than normal lead time is to accommodate my travel schedule. While the article is written as a prediction, it may in fact be commenting on something that already occurred. In any event I expect multiple leaks before Election Day and the advice contained within is applicable regardless of chronology.
It appears Wikileaks has aligned itself with the Putin regime in Russia and together they have and will continue to release purloined e-mails and other related information with the goals of embarrassing Hillary Clinton and thereby influencing Americans to vote for Putin’s preferred candidate, Donald Trump, in the upcoming American Presidential election.
