The [Wednesday] Papers

Today in The Paradise Papers: Nevis Is An Offshore Haven Of Opportunity.

Dear Steve,

Today we're releasing more data from the Paradise Papers. We're adding more than 160,000 entities to our Offshore Leaks Database from four Caribbean jurisdictions.

We also dive into a story about Kurt Donsbach - a doctor with a history of practicing medicine without a license. He reconfigured a trust in Nevis and moved assets, after being sentenced, which is not surprising given the island's asset-protection laws.

There is also an update about our UK partners, the Guardian and the BBC, which reported that Appleby - the law firm at the center of The Paradise Papers - is pursuing a legal case against them for their reporting. Our director, Gerard Ryle, called this a "dangerous moment for free expression."

Until next time!

Of course, now the United States is its own tax haven - well, even more than it already was - for corporations and the ultra-rich.

Triumph Of The Oligarchs
"Most Americans know that the tax plan is payback for major Republican donors. Gary Cohn, Trump's lead economic advisor, even conceded in an interview that 'the most excited group out there are big CEOs, about our tax plan.' Republican Rep. Chris Collins admitted 'my donors are basically saying, Get it done or don't ever call me again.' Senator Lindsey Graham warned that if Republicans failed to pass the tax plan, 'the financial contributions will stop.'"
