    latest court filings from the Manhattan DA:

    * " O'BRIEN: I would suspect that Michael Cohen is a key source in this. He said in his congressional testimony that Donald Trump's chief operating officer, Matthew Calamari, yes, Trump's chief operating officer's last name is Calamari. His accountant, essentially, Allen Weisselberg, and Ron Lieberman and other executives all had knowledge of Trump routinely inflating the value of his assets in order to get bank loans and insurance policies.
    [...]
    Clearly, Cy Vance said in court today that they're looking into the possibility of criminal fraud around those things. The shoe that's dropping here is we are now in the wake of the Supreme Court saying that Trump can't withhold his tax returns from a prosecutor. So his tax returns are in play. But also, the other thing that's in play here, Nicolle, is this will probably go beyond the election this fall. And if he doesn't get re-elected, some of the protections of the presidency are going to fall away, and he's going to have to face these prosecutors without that armor around him. So, this is a very significant development
    ." *

    * " O'BRIEN: Donald Trump welched on billions of dollars of loans in the early 1990s, and after that, no major bank would deal with him. The predecessors to banks like Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, et cetera. The bank that continued to do business with Donald Trump was Deutsche Bank, they continued doing business with him even after he litigated in the mid-2000s and tried to walk away from a loan then. That is not typical bank behavior. Deutsche bank has had myriad problems over the years involving money laundering and other issues and has gotten into trouble with regulators in Europe and the United States. They have been trying to clean up their act in recent years.

    And what's come to the fore, now, is that the Kushners and Trump's private banker, Deutsche Bank was with a number of colleagues buying apartments from the Kushners. That's not an arm's length transaction. It raises questions about whether she was conflicted in terms of any business dealings that she did with Trump and the Kushners. So that's being explored internally at Deutsche Bank now. And that private banking operation at Deutsche Bank is a potential powder keg. If she has to begin to provide evidence or testimony involving work she's done for Trump and Kushners, it is going to unlock a pandora's box for both of those families." *

    Bill Cosby was my favorite comedian and I respectrf him highly but sometimes people are not what they appear all the time. I own my vote for Billy Jefferson.
