File Under:l "Move Along; Nothing To See Here.

From The Week:

Anthony Kennedy's son was Trump's moneylender at Deutsche Bank 

Here's another line you can draw on your conspiracy board: Retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy has a connection to Germany's Deutsche Bank, which has been suspected of allowing Russian money laundering and is President Trump's biggest known lender, 

The New York Times reports. While the Trump administration has waged a long campaign to encourage Kennedy to retire — a not uncommon practice among presidents, as all are eager to fill Supreme Court vacancies — the Trumps and the Kennedys already had a long history of working together: 

Philip Gourevitch ✔ @PGourevitch oh look — Justice Kennedy’s son was Trump’s money lender when others wouldn’t touch him — 

President Trump's glowing reference to Justice Kennedy's son at his address to Congress was apparently an attempt to remind the judge of their connection. As the Times suggests, Trump's months of praise of the senior Kennedy was all part of a campaign to assure him "that his judicial legacy would be in good hands should he step down at the end of the court's term that ended this week."

And this:

North Korea has increased nuclear production at secret sites, say U.S. officials 

Work is ongoing to deceive us on the number of facilities, the number of weapons, the number of missiles," said one U.S. official. 

Trump declares North Korea 'no longer a nuclear threat'

Trump supporters still happily believe in Trump's lies.

“...Germany's Deutsche Bank, which has been suspected of allowing Russian money laundering...”. More than “suspected”! Penalized!

“The giant German lender was hit with about $630 million in penalties on Tuesday over a $10 billion Russian money-laundering scheme that involved its Moscow, New York and London branches.

It follows a $7.2 billion settlement Deutsche Bank reached with the U.S. Department of Justice last month over toxic mortgage assets and the $2.5 billion it agreed to pay in 2015 over interest rate manipulation.”

If you have to ask the question, you won’t understand the answer.

And this from CBS News:

"There were no outward signs that Kennedy was getting ready to retire. He had hired his allotment of four law clerks for the term that begins in October and he is planning to spend part of the summer as he typically does, teaching a law school class in Salzburg, Austria."

How curious...
