Why did the Trump Mobsters meet with the Russian Spy/Mobsters? To discuss "adoptions." And it's a more terrible story than most are ready for. 

Transnational organized crime is into trafficking: Guns. Drugs. Intellectual property. Counterfeits. PEOPLE.

People are VERY profitable for Mob traffickers.

Especially when you have people who have been abandoned and taken far from home.

You can make them do things for cheap. And you can do things to them. 😡

.@Lin_Manuel and company gave us all the hints possible about the revelations two years ago. Living in the shadows, they get the job done.

And it's a matter of time before the checks all come... 

Daycare. Healthcare. Hotels. Nails. And that's the stuff you can see, even if you can't see their paperwork.

And what happens in the shadows remains to be revealed.

When you ask yourself why so many people would immolate their reputations for some horrid Queens Mobster, consider how wretchedly profitable this trafficking scheme is.

And think of how much of that profit has touched politicians.

Now imagine if a politician or business leader touched...any other part of this trade.

Such is one of the awful roots of a putrescent problem. Let no part of it remain.
