    It sounds like Switzerland is no longer friendly to American bank accounts there.  But if she has Swiss citizenship, would some banks be more likely to allow her to keep money there?  Maybe she has some leftover campaign cash to shelter....

    •  nope. My SIL has dual citizenship but because (0+ / 0-)

      she pays taxes to the U.S., she's been shut down.

      before the account shutdown, so you may be right that it was her plan to do that.  
      Who knows -- she's such a mine of misinformation and foolishness, she might think that Swiss citizenship will protect her from the unAmericans in Congress. It might also be that the Swiss are pretty much white and not fond of immigrants -- so she probably likes that.

        Maybe they're looking for somewhere to escape to when America collapses. Somewhere they can hide their money in beforehand, too.
