Thomas Bowers, a former Deutsche Bank executive and head of the American wealth-management division, killed himself in Malibu, California, on Tuesday, November 19th, according to the Los Angeles county coroner’s initial report…
Bowers was the boss of Donald Trump’s banker Rosemary Vrablic, according to a New York Times article in early 2019. Vrablic approved over $300 million dollars in high risk loans for Trump starting in 2010. Bowers personally signed off on the Deutsche Bank loan for Trump’s Doral resort, according to the New York Times report. Vrablic’s other clients have included Jared Kushner and Stephen M. Ross….Vrablic reportedly attended the Trump inauguration in the VIP section, and expects to be called before Congress regarding Trump’s relationship with the bank…
One source who has direct knowledge of the FBI’s investigation into Deutsche Bank said that federal investigators have asked about Bowers and documents he might have. Another source who has knowledge of Deutsche Bank’s internal structure said that Bowers would have been the gatekeeper for financial documents for the bank’s wealthiest customers….

And less than 48 hours after:
“The Supreme Court on Monday ruled that President Trump may continue to withhold his financial records until the ongoing legal battle over the release of the documents is resolved.”
Move along, nothing to see here….

Michael Cohen’s House testimony before we move on. Beyond the many unsettling charges against President Donald Trump, he made one startling prediction: if Trump loses his reelection bid, “there will never be a peaceful transition of power.”
On the face of it, it might seem a bit wild-eyed to assert that orderly presidential succession may be threatened. Not one of 10 defeated incumbents in 58 presidential elections refused to hand over the keys to the White House — from President John Adams, who lost to Vice President Thomas Jefferson in 1800, to George H. W. Bush, who was ousted by then-Governor Bill Clinton in 1992.
Yet, given how Trump has already blown through the norms of governance in previously unimaginable ways by attacking the judiciary, Congress and the free press — as well as the increasing possibility that Trump’s post-presidential life could very well consist of criminal trials — Cohen’s warning is worth serious consideration. After all, during the last campaign Trump refused to commit in advance that he would accept the results…
Whipped-up crowds, Republican party loyalists and the right wing media would undoubtedly support his claim. With this as background, the election would be seen as “disputed,” “controversial” or “too close to call.” Trump would then insist upon remaining in office while these non-issues were resolved.
If this occurred, our political and legal system would be in real jeopardy. Trump and his acolytes’ refusal to respect our most sacred norm of peaceful succession could fundamentally transform the United States into yet another failed republic. Two hundred and thirty years of our constitutional democracy would be teetering on the edge of a cliff.

I guess at that point we’ll see how many people in the government, including the Secret Service, will honor their oath to defend “The Constitution and the United States.”

I don’t think that will happen. At this point I think they will prop up Biden and give him the nomination on a second ballot, put Patrick as his vp, then he will get destroyed by Trump. I hope I am wrong. But anyone other than Bernie will lose. IMO.

Bush (the Usurper) had a body count. HRC has a body count. Obama has a body count (hundreds of nameless Muslim wedding goers and picnicing families, a different thing) Everyone has a body count, they’re a dime a dozen.
The Shrub actually announced that he assumed the power to declare an “emergency” and proclaim himself President for an indefinite period (for life) but when the “emergency” he needed came he didn’t have the courage to strike. What makes you think Trump has the guts to try or the position to pull it off? He has alienated the military, the intelligence people are openly seditious, and his public support is under water. More likely he will be the first President to immediately emigrate to a country without an extradition treaty.
