Trove of 13.4 million leaked documents exposes U.S. Commerce Secretary Ross' ties to a company partly owned by Putin; Trudeau's top fundraiser also seen to have ties to Russian businesses, Paradise Papers reveal

A trove of 13.4 million leaked documents exposes ties between Russia and a host of western officials, including Donald Trump’s billionaire commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s main fundraiser. The leaked “Paradise Papers," published Sunday, also expose details on the offshore interests of Queen Elizabeth II, some 120 politicians from around the world, and a number of Israeli businesspeople.

The leaked documents reveal the extent to which American politics relies on personal wealth and the financial system outside of the United States. It also sheds light on corporate giants like Apple, Nike and others, who manage to minimize the taxes they pay through increasingly imaginative accounting maneuvers.

The leaked data discloses offshore ties of more than a dozen Trump advisers, cabinet members and major donors.

One of the biggest revelations in the Paradise Papers touch on investments by Ross, Donald Trump’s commerce secretary and owner of a shipping company who recorded income of more than $68 million since 2014 from a Russian energy company, which is partly owned by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As well as multinational corporations, various politicians, political entitities and assorted Royal wastrels appearing on those lists...

There's also heaps of actors, musicians, and individual business people appearing on there..

Tax departments and "forensic accountants" are going to have even more work to keep them busy over the next few years.
