What is money laundering?


I'm thinking of current events and investigations, obviously. Feel free to move this thread wherever it needs to be.

In what way would this work, using our president as an example?

For instance he sold his Florida home for a 60 million dollar profit, after owning it for two years, to a russian oligarch (who proceeded to tear it down.) It was a 150% profit and the highest single home sale record for the US.

Donald has denied ever meeting this man, but FAA records say that their planes have been in the same airports many times etc.

In the case of russian oligarchs, what is their motive for these transactions? What is it accomplishing in terms of financial and legal aims?
