Trump and the President of Panama

The Trump organization, in which Trump remains intimately involved, is trying to pressure the president of Panama to intervene in a dispute over who controls a Trump property in Panama City.

The conflict of interest here is simply staggering. El Presidente Varela is no paragon of virtue, but I hope he can withstand the pressure being put on him by the Trump fixers.

Right now the majority investor, Orestes Fintiklas, has control of the building. Possession being 9/10 of the law, we’ll see what sort of machinations the Trump people can gin up through the remaining 10%.
