Read this theory on another forum. Under normal circumstances, it would be easy to discount this as wildly spectacular conjecture. But as we've known for well too long, nothing is normal when it comes to Putin's Bitch and his band of dummies:
Somebody here needs to report on the Mueller appeals court decision case. An unnamed foreign company (that is state owned) was subpoenaed to turn over document to Muller’s team.
The theory is as follows: This unnamed company (supposed Russian Bank VEB - state owned and Putin sits on the Board of Directors) was going to fund Trump’s Moscow Tower, however it couldn’t because of the US sanctions Obama placed on them before leaving office. So Trump would lift the sanctions in order to get his tower funded. Kushner met with VEB’s chairman in NY, and also a man who pled guilty to spying for the Russian government posed as a VEB employee (VEB paid this man’s legal bills). VEB also helped fund the Trump tower construction in Toronto, so the Trump’s have past history with this Russian “bank”.
To be clear, VEB is not actually a bank at all. It’s not under the purview of Russia’s central bank, and — on its own website— says it does not compete with commercial credit institutions and participates only in those projects that cannot receive funding from private investors. Instead, VEB says its mission is “to enhance the competitiveness of the Russian economy, diversify it and stimulate investment activity.”
