Spanish police share wiretap info with FBI. Top investigator say “Donald Trump Jr. should be concerned.”

And the noose tightens a little bit more.

Courtesy of Yahoo News:

The FBI has obtained secret wiretaps collected by Spanish police of conversations involving Alexander Torshin, a deputy governor of Russia’s Central Bank who has forged close ties with U.S. lawmakers and the National Rifle Association, that led to a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. during the gun lobby’s annual convention in Louisville, Ky., in May 2016, a top Spanish prosecutor said Friday.

José Grinda, who has spearheaded investigations into Spanish organized crime, said that bureau officials in recent months requested and were provided transcripts of wiretapped conversations between Torshin and Alexander Romanov, a convicted Russian money launderer. On the wiretaps, Romanov refers to Torshin as “El Padrino,” the godfather.

“Just a few months ago, the wiretaps of these telephone conversations were given to the FBI,” Grinda said in response to a question from Yahoo News during a talk he gave at the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank in Washington. Asked if he was concerned about Torshin’s meetings with Donald Trump Jr. and other American political figures, Grinda replied: “Mr. Trump’s son should be concerned.”

You know if the FBI has evidence that Junior was colluding with the Russians to steal our election, they do not have to wait for Congress to impeach his ass.

He can be in handcuffs tomorrow.

And if he were convicted how would the country respond if Trump tried to pardon his son? 

I think we might very well be headed toward that constitutional crisis that people keep talking about.

    As part of the indictment I would like a clause that states he has to refund the taxpayers for the cost of secret service !!

    I just read an article that he and his dumb brother just racked up a bill for $250,000 for security for playing golf in Dubai !!! first they don’t need secret service, they can pay for their own security and why are we paying for them to play golf at their own property overseas.

    He also took a luxury vacation to France, again why are we paying for his security.

    I hope they lock him up in some crappy detention center like the poor kids they kidnapped, give him a foil blanket and a mattress on the ground.

      There will be no indictment. Secret Service is always provided to family members. If you want to make things even, then take it away from the Clintons and Obamas. They are plenty rich to pay for their own security.

      But no, no indictment. A Spanish detective! Hahahahahaa! You people will buy into ANYTHING!

    We are paying for security for their business trips, I would like to know what the running total of what has been spent on these two bozos.
    ================================================
    Secret Service spent nearly $250,000 on protection for Trump’s sons during overseas trips

    President Trump’s two eldest sons racked up nearly $250,000 in Secret Service costs during two trips abroad last year tied to the family’s real estate development business, according to documents released Wednesday.

    The documents show that during a February 2017 trip to the United Arab Emirates, the Secret Service paid more than $215,000 to protect Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, who were there to open the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai.

    That total includes roughly $125,000 spent on airfare, $75,000 on hotel costs and another $18,000 in other expenses, including car and cell phone rentals, according to the documents, which were obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW)…….

    The trump does not get the benefit of quitting or resignation. Only arrest. When the entire reality show was a lie there is nothing but arrest, conviction, sentencing and prison. Don was never a winner of a rigged election. He was a traitor that aided a communist KGB agent and liar. Team 6 will go and collect the little guy soon along with the enablers. But for now don is in the hot seat and he will pay for his crimes. Hillary Rodham Clinton should prepare to take her legally legit position of United States President for the remaining 2 1/2 yrs. She is the USA President.

      Lol. Uh, not happening. Ever. Comprehend? Not only is that not how the system would work, it isn’t happening anyways.

      Every day you folks spin yourselves into a tizzy that the Donald is going down. He isn’t. And Hillary will never be President. Ever.

      • Anonymous July 19, 2018 at 4:19 pm

        Yea, well the system doesn’t call for a foreign enemy to elect the fake president either !!

        Every day you try to convince us the Donald isn’t going down, well he is, GET OVER IT.

        • Anonymous July 19, 2018 at 5:40 pm

          A foreign enemy did not elect a President 4:19. The American people voted, and the Electoral College voted, as it has always been, and Trump won the election.

          Btw, since when did we start calling Russia an ‘enemy’ again? They are a world power and an adversary, but they are not considered an enemy. That is dangerous talk being upgraded by the Democratic Party simply because they hate Trump.

          And Donald is not going to be impeached or impeached and removed from office. He will likely serve two terms, especially with the extremely fractured Democratic Party where there is a rising young Socialist/Communist element disrupting the old guard. That doesn’t sell in the US and is turning a lot of people away.

            Go back to Moscow, even our intelligence agencies calls russia our enemy. He won’t serve two terms, well maybe prison terms, but not in the WH

            Nixon did far less than trump and look where that got him 🙂

          • Skunkcabbage July 19, 2018 at 9:54 pm

            Russia is most definitely the enemy of America and has committed aggressive acts of cyber warfare against us and many of our allies. If you cannot understand that fact you are either a fool, willfully ignorant, or a traitor.

          • Anonymous July 19, 2018 at 9:57 pm

            When you say Nixon did far less….. what exactly has Trump ‘done’ 6:01? Just curious, what facts (you know, actual facts) do you have that Trump has ‘done’ something?

      • Ivy Freeborn July 19, 2018 at 7:14 pm

        Oh, don’t be silly. Trump is scared to death. He’s coming
        perilously close to realizing that Putin outsmarted him, and he’s probably not going to be able to deal with the realization. Trump’s danger is money laundering. There are going to be more indictments, among his Cabinet and top level staff. There will be chargesk
        of crimes against humanity. This is all going to continue indefinitely. Whether Trump is impeached and removed from office, or finishes out his term, he hajs failed. He’ll face charges, and Pence will pardon him. Then he’ll face state charges, and it will be realized that he’s not competent to stand trial. He’s already showing signs of mental deterioration. It’ll be like Nixon: the Democrats take office and, once again, have to clean up a republican mess. There are few areas of our country and society they haven’t damaged. I think the lesson here is: don’t send republicans to D.C. : they’re not motivated by enforcing the public weal, but by sheer destructive greed. Will Hillary run? Maybe, but she might take the attitude of you made your choice, you broke it, you fix it. But Trump’s legacy is going to be disastrous for republicans, actually worse than Nixon. We got past Nixon. But the social and environmental issues caused by a Republican gov’t are going to take a long while to fix. The environmental issues will probably eventually stabilize, but whether it will stabilize at a point that doesn’t kill too many people is anybody’s guess but the Chinese are stepping up on that, so that should help a lot. . And the White House is going to have to have a huge screening for security purposes. Trump took Russian “reporters” into the Oval Office, so it’s probably been looked at, but it’s probably going to need dismantling and reconstruction to make sure it hasn’t been bugged. With luck, we won’t have to pay to get Air Force One(s) repainted, and can get rid of the tacky gold in the office. Republicans always seem to have such bad taste. Oh, and the First Stripper will probably divorce him as soon as she’s eligible for the payout in the prenup.

    “You know if the FBI has evidence that Junior was colluding with the Russians to steal our election, they do not have to wait for Congress to impeach his ass.

    He can be in handcuffs tomorrow.”

    And yet he isn’t and won’t be, as obviously the FBI has been given nothing of substance. But once again you are willing to listen to… -A FOREIGN AGENT-… as long as what they say satisfies what your ears want to hear it must be true right? Lol. Get over it dude. Trump is serving out his term.

      Did you just respond above at 2:05 pm? Calm down.

      • joann mcdevitt July 19, 2018 at 3:50 pm

        Lol,poor little snowflake can’t help himself.

    • Anonymous July 19, 2018 at 4:22 pm

      LOL, just because he hasn’t been arrest YET, doesn’t mean he won’t be. Even if trump serves out his term, doesn’t mean they can’t arrest him either.

      You must be one of the folks that is happy the enemy elected a fake president, disgusting.

    What caught my eye in your posting, Gryphen, was not what Donnie, Jr. should be worried about but the mention of “other American political figures”. Let’s get the names of these American political figures. How deep is the Russian interference in our political system? Who? What? Where? and How (much)?

    Money laundering – the Trump’s Achilles Heel.
