Have you been watching it? The six-part documentary series on Netflix? E.g., episode #4: Cartel Bank. (“A trail of suspicious transactions led to startling revelations about banking giant HSBC and its ties to Mexico’s deadliest drug cartels.”) One episode not to miss is the finale, #6: The Confidence Man. (“Donald Trump’s image as a savvy businessman dazzled millions. But journalists and former associates describe an empire awash in drama and shady deals.”)
Putin is giddy with success. It would have been so much tougher for him if Hillary had won. Or, for that matter, Romney.
