Saturday Russian Reading

1a

A Reuters review found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida.

MIAMI/MOSCOW – During the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald J. Trump downplayed his business ties with Russia. And since taking office as president, he has been even more emphatic.

“I can tell you, speaking for myself, I own nothing in Russia,” President Trump said at a news conference last month. “I have no loans in Russia. I don’t have any deals in Russia.”

But in the United States, members of the Russian elite have invested in Trump buildings. A Reuters review has found that at least 63 individuals with Russian passports or addresses have bought at least $98.4 million worth of property in seven Trump-branded luxury towers in southern Florida, according to public documents, interviews and corporate records.

The buyers include politically connected businessmen, such as a former executive in a Moscow-based state-run construction firm that works on military and intelligence facilities, the founder of a St. Petersburg investment bank and the co-founder of a conglomerate with interests in banking, property and electronics.

    Had snow overnight, a couple inches that was very, VERY wet. I shoveled off the deck and the walkway to the garage just in case I needed to go to the garage. Half the snow is already melted out there and my deck and walkway are perfect. Whatever the shovel didn’t get melted.

    High today was 40°.

    Thundersnow, while relatively rare anywhere, is more common with lake-effect snow in the Great Lakes area of the United States and Canada, the midwestern United States, and the Great Salt Lake.

    Thanks, Doc, for the Thundersnow link. We here in central Michigan don’t get the lake effect snow like they get in other areas of Michigan.

    I’ve heard thunder and saw lightening in winter a few times in my life. I remember one in January, probably back in 1976 when we still lived near Detroit. That one kind of scared me. Freaky nature.
