The US administration denies any involvement in the "Panamanian documents," reports RIA News White House spokesman Eric Schulz.


White House: Washington is not involved in the scandal with the "Panamanian documents"


When asked by journalists how he assesses Vladimir Putin’s words that ““ Panamanian documents ”is an attempt to shake Russia from the inside” (and American journalists altered the words of the Russian president - in their interpretation, Putin allegedly said that ” USA ”), Schulz replied:“ I don’t have a clue what Putin’s words are based on. ”

“I can only speak for my president. When the president (Obama) speaks about high voltageit is always based on facts, ”he said.

In turn, State Department spokesman Mark Toner did not hide the fact that the US government sponsors journalists involved in the investigation of "offshore scandal" through his USAID agency. However, the support of journalists, he said, does not mean that they are required to have a certain result.

"They (journalists) received funding from various sources, including the US government ... These are the organizations that received and receive funding from USAID, but not to persecute specific countries or people, but to conduct independent investigative journalism" - he said at the briefing.

Toner clarified that the organization receiving the subsidy is called the Organized Crime And Corruption Reporting Project.

He stressed that the US administration "did not know in advance about the ongoing investigation and its results, because it does not interfere with the work of journalists."

The agency recalls that "the German Sueddeutsche Zeitung previously published allegedly documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, which indicate the involvement of a number of world leaders and their close to offshore schemes." The list of such persons, including, included Russian citizens "from the entourage of President Vladimir Putin." The authenticity of the published documents is not confirmed.

        According to the latest polls conducted at the end of January by Rasmussen Reports companies, more than 80 percent of US citizens consider their government to be corrupt. Representatives of the Gallup research agency received almost the same data: 75 percent of the respondents stated their confidence in corruption of the country's political elite. However, the highest results were obtained in the largest US city - New York. 89 percent of the citizens surveyed said that the level of corruption in the US leadership has become serious and threatens the national security of the country ..... well, in fact, why be surprised if the Americans themselves admitted recently that they managed to prepare as many as three billions for several billion For the Syrian opposition .. laughing

        Donald Rumsfeld, a former US Secretary of Defense during the time of Bush Jr., publicly stated that a quarter of the Pentagon’s spending goes unclear, and there are simply no accounting documents for over 2 trillion dollars. Now reporting documents are already missing for 8,5 trillion dollars. Where they went is unclear

    You all know that when you swim in the river or the sea, the lake is not important. You can’t play drowning, otherwise people, if God forbid, will really drown and think that they are playing and if they don’t believe they will not come to the rescue. This is how Washington now doesn’t publish, except for smiles and curses, it won’t get anything. Because there are no liars like Americans on our planet, only they are trying to compete with them in media.

    Compromising senior officials or those close to them does not arise on the same day, this information accumulates over time, as a rule, those who can use this information know about it, the accumulation process is underway, and there may not be a case to use it, but if such a need arises, then there is a journalistic investigation or a leak in the media, of course the White House will claim that it has nothing to do with it, they knew about this information, they just gave it a go, and not with its own hands. Investigations will now begin in different countries regarding companies that have appeared on such tax evasion, if the information begins to be confirmed, and it is likely to be confirmed, it will be interesting to look at all :-)

    Another "zrada" took place where none of the hysterical Svidomo patriots did not intend to detect the "enemy". As the former representative of the European Court of Human Rights, Boris Babin, said the enterprises of Kherson and Nikolaev supply construction materials for the construction of the Kerch Bridge, this embodiment of the cunning and treacherous plans of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    After such a message, it is expected that most of the patriotic population of Ukraine will experience another attack of anti-Russian fever, and some, presumably, will remain a stutter for life.
