Oligarch Wednesday


American Oligarch

U.S. senators are pressing many of the world’s largest financial institutions to disclose any links between their companies and wealthy Russians allied with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a letter released on Tuesday.

Two Democratic senators, Jeanne Shaheen and Sheldon Whitehouse, have written to the banks, hoping to increase pressure not just on individuals on the U.S. Treasury’s so-called “oligarchs list,” but also on financial institutions to closely consider those with whom they do business as Washington moves to impose sanctions on Moscow.

The Trump administration announced sanctions on Russia on April 6, largely responding to what U.S. intelligence agencies have said was Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. election, although Treasury painted them as a response to a series of adversarial actions by Moscow.

Russia denies meddling in the election.

    I watched Macron’s speech to Congress. Only because it was on and I heard from this room him saying we had to protect our planet. I zoomed out there, rewound the speech to the beginning.

    Macron pretty much was against everything Trump has said and been doing, lol. I bet Trump’s not going to think of Macron as his best friend after the speech.

    Heading out to Los Tres Amigos in Mason for Pete’s birthday dinner. Margaritas!!! I’ll pick up the check.

    I guess that’s Steve Mnuchin? Didn’t see his name in the article. I love when Colbert imitates him, the way he talks. Cracks me up every time.

    Second, John Oliver is always pointing out how handsome Mnuchin is because they look alike. Makes me laugh.

    A slow 16 minutes to the Hillside Cafe in the sunny, warm weather. The first of my tulips has blossomed.
