Do Not Investigate this Story (White House tells us there’s nothing here)

By Peter Eisner

A little triangulation:

There is an interesting link between the new Trump commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, a Russian billionaire and the sale of a Palm Beach mansion by Donald Trump.
  • Wilbur Ross was vice chairman of the Bank of Cyprus, often cited as a depository for Russian money laundering.
  • Bank of Cyprus’s largest shareholder was a Russian billionaire, Dmitry Rybolovlev. In 2008, Rybolovlev bought a mansion — once the largest private house in the United States — from a gentleman named Donald Trump for $95 million. (Trump’s profit more than $50 million).
  • White House now blocks information about the bank, Trump and Russia.

 

 We are told that there is nothing to investigate. Forget about it.

But just in case, here are three stories to tell the tale:

Wilbur Ross arrives for a meeting with Trump at the White House in Washington DC on 23 February 2017.
