But that is not the aim. Putin had a unique opportunity with Trump, a real estate developer who owed money to Russian banks he has direct influence over, to launder tens of billions or dirty Russian money from drugs and other criminal activities globally. The number of times Russians and Russian connected people like Manafort keep coming up is the clue. But the turnover of Trump built property from one Russian "businessman" to another and another is staggering. Each transfer legitimising more cash and kickbacks going to the Putin retirement fund for services rendered. "Its all about the Benjamins Baby!"
