President Trump’s idiot son Eric has once again been caught saying something he shouldn’t have. Golf writer James Dodson just revealed to the world that in 2014, Eric Trump confirmed to him that the Trump family golf courses were being funded by Russia.
Three years ago, Dodson was invited to golf with Trump at the Trump National Golf Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, where he asked the then-real estate mogul how he was funding his golf course development in the shaky economic climate. Trump “sort of tossed off that he had access to $100 million,” recounts Dodson.
Searching for more answers, Dodson then approached Eric Trump.
“So when I got in the cart with Eric,” Dodson says, “as we were setting off, I said, ‘Eric, who’s funding? I know no banks — because of the recession, the Great Recession — have touched a golf course. You know, no one’s funding any kind of golf construction. It’s dead in the water the last four or five years.’
And this is what he said. He said, ‘Well, we don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.’ I said, ‘Really?’ And he said, ‘Oh, yeah. We’ve got some guys that really, really love golf, and they’re really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time.’ Now that was three years ago, so it was pretty interesting.”
In one fell swoop, Trump’s own son has confirmed that, as is widely suspected, Trump’s tax returns contain substantial links to Russian oligarchs who have done him a serious favor by investing in his golf courses.
American lenders are loathe to extend credit to Trump due to his multiple bankruptcies and shady business practices, which has forced him to look overseas for funding. He’s found it in Germany’s Deutshe Bank AG – and in Moscow.
Eric Trump has also confirmed that his father has taken multiple trips to Russia, creating plenty of opportunities for him to make connections in the Russian government – and to engage in the lewd activities detailed in the Steele “Golden Showers” Dossier.
The revelation comes at a very unfortunate time for the embattled president, since the twin investigations by Congressional Intelligence Committees into President Trump and his campaign team’s potentially treasonous collusion with Russian agents are preparing to interview their next round of witnesses next week.
Trump has denied having any connections to Russia, financial or otherwise, at least twenty times – but his refusal to release his tax returns and the statements of his own children tell a different story.
Dodson’s revelations should make a subpoena to the Treasury Department for Trump’s tax returns a certainty, if our investigators are truly dedicated to getting to the bottom of the scandal that has engulfed Trump’s White House since the second he was inaugurated.
