Hey, if your son is working for a bank moving dark money around and you write a Supreme Court decision about dark money, is it still valid?

Because Justice Kennedy's son Justin was working in Mortgage Backed Securities at Deutsche Bank when Citizens United was argued.

After Citizens United was argued and before it was decided, Justin Kennedy resigned and started his own fund. Real estate securities.  https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748704194504575031432334629708 

Real estate was used to launder foreign money in to the Trump campaign.

A have a feeling there is more to the story of Citizens United...and the financial crisis...and Trump-Russia. </>

OH WOW, I TOTES FORGOT, Deutsche Bank was laundering RUSSIAN money and this involved MORTGAGE BACKED SECURITIES! LIKE JUSTIN WORKED ON!  http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/31/investing/deutsche-bank-us-fine-russia-money-laundering/index.html 

So I ask again, if your son works for a launderer of Russian money and you write a Supreme Court decision that allows Russians to launder money into our campaigns, is that still the law? Because it seems dodgy. 🧐
