Default McCain, Deripaska, Ross, Deutsche, Alfa, Doyen

This post is a summary of some of the posts I’ve already made in other threads.
The name of Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild, who sits on the advisory board of the notorious Brookings Institution, keeps on appearing.

John McCain, Davis Manafort, Deripaska, Diligence
In January 2006, Rick Davis introduced Rothschild associate Oleg Deripaska to John McCain at a villa in Davos, Switzerland.
In August 2006, John McCain was spotted celebrating his 70th birthday in Montenegro with Rick Davis at a yacht rented by the Italian Raffaello Follieri (later convicted to years in prison) and his then movie-star girlfriend Anne Hathaway.
On the same day one of the largest yachts in the world, the Queen K of Rothschild’s associate Oleg Deripaska, was in the same bay of Kotor. This was the real reason McCain and Davis went to Montenegro; to meet Deripaska at a reception.

Deripaska also reached out to Washington-based intelligence firm, Diligence, chaired by GOP foreign policy hand and member of the Nixon Center (now called CNI) Richard Burt, McCain’s adviser in 2000 and 2008.
In 2007, Burt left Diligence to join Henry Kissinger’s consulting firm (Kissinger is also honorary chairman of the pro-Russian think tank CNI).

Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild bought a stake in corporate spying firm Diligence.
Deripaska was a client of Diligence. Possibly the most important service Diligence delivered to Deripaska was a “due diligence” report, which was used to approve a $150 million to a Deripaska subsidiary, the Komi Aluminum Project, by the World Bank.
Getting the loan was useful in gaining Western investors confidence in RusAl (of Deripaska and Rothschild):

When McCain first met Deripaska in January 2006, they also met Peter Munk, founder of Barrick Gold, the world’s largest gold-mining company, based in Toronto.
Nat Rothschild sits on Barrick’s advisory board:

Deutsche Bank, Wilbur Ross, Bank of Cyprus
One of the banks linked to both Rothschild and Donald Trump, is Deutsche Bank, which has been reported as the only major bank that still provided credit to a liability like Donald.

Lynn Forester de Rothschild, is a board member of both the McCain Institute and the Alfred Herrhausen Society for International Dialogue of Deutsche Bank.
De Rothschild was previously an Advisor to the Global Commercial Microfinance Consortium Advisory Board of Deutsche Bank:

In November 2008, attorney Steven Molo on behalf of Deutsche Bank, started legal action against Donald Trump because he had not returned $330 million of the $640 million he had “borrowed” in 2005.
Two years later, Trump “settled” with Deutsche Bank by repaying the “loan” with another “loan” from… Deutsche Bank. They even gave Trump another $25 million to $50 million on top of the sum needed to pay off the (first) loan.
When Trump was elected president, he owed Deutsche some $300 million:

Wilbur Ross (Trump’s Secretary of commerce), who worked decades at NM Rothschild & Sons, and Trump go back to at least the early 1990s when Ross, together with Carl Icahn, arranged the deal that allowed Trump to keep “his” casinos.
In the 1990s, President Bill Clinton appointed Ross to lead the US-Russia Investment Fund, to loot Russia in the transition from Communism to “market economy”.

Until 2012, the CEO of Deutsche Bank was Josef Ackermann.
In the spring of 2014, Wilbur Ross became vice chairman of the Bank of Cyprus. Later that year Ackermann was brought in to help direct the Bank of Cyprus.

Among the major shareholders of the Bank of Cyprus is one Dimitry Rybolovlev. In 2008, Rybolovlev bought a Florida mansion from Trump for $95 million (in the midst of the housing crisis) that Trump had bought for less than $42 million only 3 years earlier (in 2005).
During the 2016 presidential election, it was reported that Rybolovlev’s business jet arrived within hours of Trump’s arrival at airports, in Concord, N.C. and Las Vegas. It has even been reported that Rybolovlev was aboard Trump’s jet during his North Carolina trip:

Alfa Bank, Rudy Giuliani, Rosneft, Richard Burt
In 2016, a server of the Trump Organization was communicating with the Russian Alfa Bank and Michigan-based Spectrum Health of the DeVos family.
The communication probably involved the synchronisation of a shared database:

In 2008, none other than Rudy Giuliani was hired by the Alfa Bank for a speech. Giuliani featured prominently on Alfa’s website and pictured with the heads of Alfa Bank; Mikhail Fridman and Pyotr Aven in Moscow.

Rudy Giuliani’s law and consulting firm, Giuliani Partners, has also represented Russian oil company Rosneft. In one deal Giuliani Partners represented both seller Rosneft and buyer, Qatar’s investment fund.
Giuliani’s firm has also worked for the Italian oil company Eni, which has a close partnership with Rosneft.
In 2007, it was revealed that Giuliani’s firm lobbied for the US subsidiary Citgo Petroleum Corp of the Venezuelan state-oil company PDVSA.
PDVSA got a $1.5 billion dollar loan from Russia’s Rosneft, with 49.9% of the company as collateral.

Rudy Giuliani has also represented Fox News (of Jacob Rothschild’s friend Rupert Murdoch).

In 2012, Bracewell & Giuliani announced that its client Chesapeake Energy had closed an energy deal with Royal Dutch Shell Oil (also affiliated with Rothschild).
Shell announced that they were also advised in this deal by Bracewell & Giuliani:

In 2013, Fridman founded the LetterOne Group (a.k.a. L1 Group) investment fund.
In May 2010 and May 2011, Fridman visited the White House. Both times Fridman was accompanied by Richard Burt, who negotiated the 1991 START I nuclear treaty with the Soviet Union.
Putin ally and member of Center for the National Interest (CNI), Simes, organised a speech for Trump, written by CNI member and Gazprom lobbyist Richard Burt:

Richard Burt was also a member of the advisory board of the Alfa Group and still has an advisory role at LetterOne.
Richard Burt was also executive chairman and is still a member of the Advisory Board of corporate intelligence operation Diligence LLC, which employs former spies.
A stake in Diligence is owned by Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild.

Richard Burt is also a board members of the Center of the National Interest (CNI).
Trump’s friend for many years, Henry Kissinger, is honorary chairman of the CNI. Another board member is the cofounder of Baron Jacob Rothschild’s investment fund Blackstone, Peter Peterson.
In 2017, Dimitry Simes (also a board members of the CNI) met Kremlin adviser Gleb Pavlovsky and Oleg Deripaska:

In the first half of 2017, Alfa Bank hired lawyer Brian Benczkowski, to discredit the evidence on communications between its server and the Trump Organization server.
Benczkowski was later nominated by Trump to head the Criminal Division at the DoJ:

Arif, Doyen, Bumi, Inter Milan
Eugene Geffy, affiliated with the money laundering Doyen Group of Trump’s associate Tevfik Arif, made career in the Alfa bank before in 2001 founding Salford; an investment fund of Nat Rothschild:

The main investors of the Doyen Group remain anonymous, except for:
1) Tevfik Arif (who partnered with Donald Trump in the money laundering Bayrock).
2) Fettah Tamince, a relative of Turkish President Erdogan, who owns the hotel chain Rixos (together with Tevfik Arif);
3) Erick Thohir, an Indonesian billionair.

In 2013, media tycoon Erick Thohir, Handy Soetedjo and Rosan Roeslani bought 70% of Inter Milan for a reported $400 million.
Until December 2012, Rosan Roeslani had been a Director of Indonesian mining group Bumi plc (he also managed its subsidiary Berau Coal). Bumi is listed on the London Stock Exchange. Roeslani took $173 million out of Berau, before buying the stake in Inter Milan, and then promised to put it back “by the end of the year”.

Rothschild in partnership with the Indonesian Bakrie family put Bumi together.
In 2013, Nat Rothschild owned about 15% of Bumi plc:
