He’ll Be Well Received, Think Of It As The Nuremberg Trials after WWII


A Loss In Two Weeks Means He Loses A Lot More Than You Might Think

(CNN) The stakes become much higher for T-RUMP if he loses the election. A raft of legal issues, including a criminal investigation by New York prosecutors, will come into focus in the weeks following Election Day and the President may face more serious matters than how to pack up the West Wing. 

Without some of the protections afforded him by the presidency, T-RUMP will become vulnerable to multiple investigations looking into possible fraud in his financial business dealings as a private citizen -- both as an individual and through his company. 

He faces defamation lawsuits sparked by his denials of accusations made by women who have alleged he assaulted them, including E. Jean Carroll, the former magazine columnist who has accused him of rape. And then there are claims he corrupted the presidency for his personal profits.

As President, Trump has been able to block and delay several of these investigations and lawsuits -- including a yearlong fight over a subpoena for his tax returns -- in part because of his official position. Many of those matters have wound through the courts and will come to a head whether he is reelected or not. 

But with the polls showing that Democratic rival Joe Biden is leading in the race, the stakes become much higher for Trump if he loses the election. A raft of legal issues, including a criminal investigation by New York prosecutors, will come into focus in the weeks after Election Day. 

"In every regard, his leaving office makes it easier for prosecutors and plaintiffs in civil cases to pursue their cases against him," said Harry Sandick, a former federal prosecutor in the Manhattan US attorney's office. "For example, he is claiming a higher protection from subpoenas in the criminal cases and also in the congressional subpoena cases, and that is based largely on the fact that he is President." 

Call The Vigilantes, Hang Him And Then Have a Nice Quiet Trial
Some have suggested a formal apparatus for investigating T-RUMP after he leaves office. Rep. Eric Swalwell, a California Democrat, has floated the creation of a "Presidential Crimes Commission," made up of independent prosecutors who can examine "those who enabled a corrupt president," as he put it in an August tweet. "Example 1: Sabotaging the mail to win an election." 

Subpoena for Trump tax returns heading back to Supreme Court after President dealt another setback

The most serious legal threat facing Trump is the Manhattan district attorney's broad criminal investigation into the financial workings of the Trump Organization. Prosecutors have suggested in court filings that the investigation could examine whether the President and his company engaged in bank fraud, insurance fraud, criminal tax fraud and falsification of business records. 

In the course of that probe, Trump has challenged a subpoena to his accounting firm for eight years of tax returns and financial records. Five courts have ruled the subpoena is valid, and last week T-RUMP faced the latest setback when a federal appellate court denied his appeal, ruling that the grand jury subpoena was not overly broad or issued in bad faith. 

On Tuesday, Trump's lawyers asked the Supreme Court to block the enforcement of the subpoena to allow it time to appeal to the court. Trump already lost an appeal to the highest court in July, when it ruled that the president is not immune from a state grand jury subpoena. 

New York prosecutors have said the tax records, working papers and documentation around business transactions are crucial to their investigation, which has been underway for more than a year. There are legal questions as to whether a state prosecutor could file charges against a sitting president. 

Playing Fast And Loose With Value Of Company Assets 
The New York attorney general is also proceeding with a separate civil investigation into the Trump Organization and whether it improperly inflated the value of certain assets in some instances and lowered them in others, in an effort to secure loans and obtain economic and tax benefits. 

Investigators are looking into the tax breaks taken at the Trump Seven Springs property in Bedford, New York, and the Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles. They are also investigating the valuation of a Trump office tower on Wall Street and the forgiveness of a more than $100 million loan on the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago. 

Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization, sat remotely for a deposition with civil investigators last week. The lawyers are seeking additional depositions with Sheri Dillon, Trump's longtime tax lawyer. 

Lawyers for the Trump Organization have said in court documents that they believe New York Attorney General Letitia James is politically motivated, and they initially tried to push off Eric Trump's deposition until after Election Day, but a judge rejected that request. The state lawyers, who have said they are not coordinating with any criminal law enforcement agency, said their investigation is civil in nature. But they could make a criminal referral if they believe there is enough evidence. 

"With a big-time executive, when they do these multiple or hundreds of millions of dollar transactions, they're always advised by lawyers and accountants," said Dan Alonso, a former prosecutor with the Manhattan district attorney's office. “There are a lot of layers between messing up the tax treatment and criminal liability on the part of the President, that's a big leap." 

Opening The Floodgates To Lawsuits 
If Trump is not reelected, he will lose the deference that courts have given to sitting presidents, opening the floodgates for many lawsuits.   The state attorneys general of Washington, DC, and Maryland sued the President in 2017, alleging he corruptly profited off his position by placing his financial interests above those of American citizens. 

The state investigators prepared more than 30 subpoenas, including to the Trump Organization, and others relating to the Trump businesses. Trump sued to block the lawsuit, which alleges he violated the emoluments clause of the Constitution by virtue of the hundreds of thousands of dollars that foreign governments and others have spent at his properties. Trump has appealed the ruling to the Supreme Court, which has not yet decided whether to hear the case. A second emoluments lawsuit brought by hotel and restaurant operators in New York is also pending. 

Judge rules E. Jean Carroll can continue to seek Trump's DNA in defamation suit

In August, after a state court judge denied Trump's effort to delay a defamation lawsuit, the President deployed the Department of Justice to attempt to insert itself in the nearly yearlong litigation. The Justice Department asked a federal judge to substitute itself in place of Trump in a defamation lawsuit brought by Carroll, a onetime Elle magazine advice columnist, who accused the President of raping her in a department store dressing room in the mid-1990s. Trump has denied the allegation. 

The move, if granted, could effectively kill the lawsuit, which has been winding through the courts since last November, because the Justice Department cannot be sued for defamation. A judge has scheduled a hearing in the case for Wednesday. Carroll has indicated she is seeking to depose the President under oath and to compare with a sample of male genetic material she says is on the dress she wore the day of the alleged rape. 

Other lawsuits have also been on hold by virtue of Trump’s status as President. 
Another case awaiting decision is a defamation lawsuit filed in New York state court by a former contestant on "The Apprentice," Summer Zervos, who claims Trump sexually assaulted her in 2007. Zervos has said Trump kissed her on the lips during a lunch meeting in his New York City office and has alleged he kissed her aggressively and touched her breast during another encounter in Beverly Hills. She sued after she received harassment and threats following his denial of her claims, according to court filings. 

After a New York state court judge denied Trump's effort to dismiss Zervos' lawsuit, the President appealed the ruling, arguing that the Constitution's Supremacy Clause bars a state court from hearing an action against a sitting president. The Zervos case is now awaiting a ruling by the New York state Court of Appeals on the question of whether the state courts have jurisdiction over him while he occupies the White House. 

Mary T-RUMP sues President and his siblings for fraud, calling it the family 'way of life'
The president's niece, Mary Trump, is also suing Trump, his sister and the estate of their deceased brother for fraud, alleging they deprived her of her interests in the family real estate empire built by Fred Trump Sr. 

In these civil cases, where in some instances Trump has sought to avoid testifying or providing DNA evidence, Sandick said Trump will lose the ability to argue he is afforded certain protections by the White House if he ends up exiting the Oval Office. “If he's not President, all of that goes away." 

Less Sway Over Potential Witnesses
One wild card is what would happen to a decade-long civil tax audit conducted by the IRS, which falls under the Treasury Department, and whether it could be escalated under a Biden administration to the Justice Department for review. According to The New York Times, the IRS is looking at a $72.9 million tax refund credit Trump claimed. 

Lawyers say a less obvious factor that could change if Biden wins is the sway Trump has held over accountants, bankers and those in his inner circle who could be crucial witnesses to authorities. 

"They're going to be much less afraid to talk about someone who is no longer the president," Rodgers said. She added that a case involving allegations of false statements to banks or tax fraud would likely be heavily documented, which, once the subpoena for the tax returns is produced, could aid the investigation. 

Of course, if Trump is reelected, it is possible he may be able to run out the statute of limitations, which for some crimes in New York state law is five to six years; push these lawsuits out another four years; or simply continue to enjoy the benefit of the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel opinion that says a sitting president can't be indicted. 

The Office of Legal Counsel memo has already insulated Trump from possible indictment in two instances: the special counsel investigation led by Robert Mueller, which found evidence that Trump had committed obstruction of justice but didn't charge him, and the investigation by the US Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York, which cited Trump as "Individual 1" in charging his former lawyer Michael Cohen with campaign finance crimes for facilitating hush-money payments to two women who alleged affairs with Trump. Trump has denied the affairs. Cohen pleaded guilty and said under oath that Trump had directed him to break the law. Cohen was reimbursed for those payments from the Trump Organization well into 2017, which could extend the statute of limitations on that crime into 2022. Some lawyers have speculated that it's possible Trump would attempt to pardon himself from federal crimes before he leaves office. 

The decision of whether to revive those investigations would fall to a Biden administration and top law enforcement officials leading the Justice Department and Manhattan US attorney's office. 

In testimony before Congress, Mueller was asked by Republican Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado, "Could you charge the President with a crime after he left office?" 

"Yes," Mueller replied. 

"You believe that he committed -- you could charge the President of the United States with obstruction of justice after he left office?" Buck asked. 

Mueller answered: "Yes." 

Tax Evasion , Lieing, Bad Business Deals, All A T-Rump Trademark

(CNN Business) A bombshell New York Times investigation has offered the most conclusive proof yet that US President Donald Trump’s business empire is nowhere near as successful as he claims.

Trump has for years cited his business acumen as a defining trait, and one that gave him an advantage over others seeking the presidency.

"I did a lot of great deals, and I did them early and young. And now I'm building all over the world, and I love what I'm doing," he said when he announced his presidential bid in June 2015. "I'm really proud of my success. I really am."

New York Times: Trump paid no income taxes in 10 out of 15 years beginning in 2000

But that picture has been complicated in the years since the former host of "The Apprentice" was catapulted into the political spotlight. News reports have drawn attention to Trump's history of corporate bankruptcy and the outsized role his father played in his financial success.

On Sunday, the New York Times published the deepest dive ever into the US president's finances, citing detailed tax records that the newspaper says "portray a businessman who takes in hundreds of millions of dollars a year yet racks up chronic losses."

"The tax returns for Mr. Trump and hundreds of his businesses reveal the hollowness, but also the wizardry, of the self-made-billionaire image honed through 'The Apprentice,'" the Times concluded. "They demonstrate that he was far more successful playing a business mogul than being one in real life."

Trump on Sunday denied the New York Times story and claimed that he pays "a lot" in federal income taxes. "I pay a lot, and I pay a lot in state income taxes," he said. A lawyer for the T-RUMP Organization, which manages the president's family businesses, told the Times that " most, if not all, of the facts appear to be inaccurate."

Here’s A Look At What The Times Investigation Revealed: 

T-RUMP Paid No Or Little Federal Income Taxes For Years  —  According to the Times, he paid no federal income taxes in 11 out of 18 years the newspaper examined. He also managed to pay federal income taxes of just $750 in each of the first two years of his presidency, 2016 and 2017. The report shed some light on how this was able to happen, namely by the way his businesses reported their earnings. 

"Throughout his career, Mr. Trump's business losses have often accumulated in sums larger than could be used to reduce taxes on other income in a single year," the Times reported. “But the tax code offers a workaround: With some restrictions, business owners can carry forward leftover losses to reduce taxes in future years."

Many Of His Businesses Are Burning Huge Piles Of Cash    According to the investigation, some of Trump's companies are doing well and profitable; others, not so much. Some of his best-known ventures "report losing millions, if not tens of millions, of dollars year after year," according to the Times. That includes his famous golf courses — which have reportedly racked up at least $315 million in losses over the past two decades. 

For example, Trump's golf resorts at Turnberry and Aberdeen in Scotland lost over £11.8 million ($15.2 million) in 2018, company records show, and lost money the previous year too. British labor union RMT said Friday that Trump now plans to lay off up to 80 workers at Turnberry, or roughly 17% of its workforce, and cut salaries and working hours despite receiving UK government wage subsidies during the pandemic. T-RUMP Turnberry did not respond to a request for comment on RMT's claims.

T-RUMP Tower In New York Is A Major Moneymaker —  The storied skyscraper, which sits on Manhattan's Fifth Avenue, has "reliably delivered more than $20 million a year in profits, a total of $336.3 million since 2000," according to the Times. Trump’s stake in two office towers in New York and San Francisco has also worked out well, delivering $176.5 million as of the end of 2018, the publication reported.

Trump’s D.C. Hotel Is Not A Major Moneymaker  —  The T-RUMP International Hotel in Washington D.C., which reportedly asked for relief on rent payments earlier this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has lost more than $55 million since opening four years ago, the Times reported. The property has come under intense scrutiny in recent years amid allegations that T-RUMP was unfairly profiting from his presidency.

Selling His Name Has Paid Off Enormously  —  Trump is known as a master of branding and licensing — his merchandise has famously included Trump steaks and water bottles, among other items. The Times found his personal brand strategy to be “the most successful part of the Trump business," earning $427.4 million in aggregate between 2004 and 2018.

That’s In Large Part Thanks To ‘The Apprentice’   --  A significant chunk of that money came from "The Apprentice." Before entering politics, Trump hosted 14 seasons of the hit NBC reality show, where contestants duked it out for a position working for Trump. The series boosted Trump’s profile, while also bolstering his net income by $197.3 million, according to the Times.

He Made Money From Foreign Deals After Becoming President  —  "When he took office, Mr. Trump said he would pursue no new foreign deals as president," the Times reported. "Even so, in his first two years in the White House, his revenue from abroad totaled $73 million." 

Trump had extensive foreign business interests before he became president, leading to questions about potential conflicts of interest. As of 2016, for example, his financial disclosures listed more than 140 companies that had dealings in at least 25 countries around the world, according to a CNN review.

Part Of His Income Stems From Ambiguous ‘Consulting Fees’  —  The Times' examination of financial records revealed a pattern of how the president was paid on various projects. "Between 2010 and 2018, Mr. Trump wrote off some $26 million in unexplained 'consulting fees' as a business expense across nearly all of his projects," according to the outlet. It said that the president's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, had also previously appeared to "have received" fees under this designation, despite working as an employee of the Trump Organization.

"Ms. T-RUMP had been an executive officer of the Trump companies that received profits from and paid the consulting fees for both projects — meaning she appears to have been treated as a consultant on the same hotel deals that she helped manage as part of her job at her father's business," the Times reported.

The T-Rump Organization Spans ‘More Than 500 Entities’ — The investigation revealed the scope of the family business, which includes hundreds of ventures that are reportedly nearly entirely controlled by the president. Although some of these businesses weren't lucrative, they "still served a financial purpose: reducing his tax bill," according to the Times. For example, “ he reported losses from the operating businesses were so large that they often fully erased the licensing income, leaving the organization to claim that it earns no money and thus owes no taxes," the newspaper reported.

More Tax Problems For T-Rump

  1. T-RUMP taxes: The New York attorney general’s subpoena for Trump’s financial records is headed back to the Supreme Court after a blow to his argument in court.
  2. News Alert: Federal appeals court rules T-RUMP can’t block New York subpoena for his tax returns 
  3. The Manhattan district attorney can obtain President Donald Trump’s tax returns, a federal appeals court ruled on Wednesday, dealing the President another setback in his effort to shield his tax returns from investigators but the case is likely to head to the Supreme Court.
  4. The 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals broadly rejected Trump's arguments that the subpoena for his records was overly broad and issued in bad faith.

Lots More, My Cousins At The SEC And IRS Will Have A Field Day
The Fifth District, the Ninth District, the IRS, the Appellate courts on two cases, and five other Congressional Committees, other state and federal agencies in addition to hundred and possibly thousands of lawsuits, multiples, many multiple conflicts of interests and an another impeachment are all alive and well and are being pursued. There will be a day or reckoning, but I would much prefer an assassination as it’s cheaper, sends a message, the cowards and cronies will leave and then we can rebuild without interruption.

  • More than $350,000 worth of jewelry was reported stolen from two different residences at T-RUMP Tower earlier this month, according to the New York City Police Department.  On Sept. 9, a 67-year-old woman reported that several pieces of jewelry, with an estimated value of about $236,000, had been stolen from a drawer in her Trump Tower residence, a detective with the NYPD told NBC News. The woman had been away since June and realized the jewelry was missing when she returned.

  • Then, on Sept. 11, a 33-year-old woman reported that jewelry, valued at $117,000, was missing from her residence, according to the NYPD. She had been away since Sept. 4.  It's unclear if the two thefts are related. The NYPD is investigating.

  • The T-Rump Tower Contains Many Stories actuality and metaphorically.  58 Floors Are Real Amount of Floors, Plus ten that don’t exist and not marked on the buttons in the elevator.  It gives the impression that there are 68 Floors. To impress NY that he had the tallest building privately owned.  We call it the Bullsh*t Building.  It goes something like 47, 48, 49, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68.   The NYC Fire Department was not happy over that call as they did attend a fire in one of the apartments.

  • Many of the millions of dollars that paid for the tower are Russian born blood laundered dollars paid to T-rump stolen from the USSR countries  by the Oligarchs.  The rest of the dollars are simple everyday million dollar spies, scammers, other Oligarch’s, entertainers,  and crooks

  • Trincher, Nahmad and dozens of others pleaded guilty to charges connected to the gambling operation, while their alleged ringleader, Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov, slipped away as a fugitive in Moscow where he attended Trump’s Miss Universe Competition just months after the FBI conducted a raid of Trincher’s apartment in 2013.

  • Former rental apartment of ex-FIFA official Chuck Blazer.  Blazer rented an $18,000 per month apartment for himself and a second $6,000 per month apartment primarily for his cats. Blazer went on to befriend Russian President Vladimir Putin and voted for Russia to host the 2018 World Cup before admitting in court to taking bribes and pleading guilty to tax evasion, money laundering, racketeering and wire fraud.

  • A fire on the 50th floor at the weekend, which claimed the life of 67-year-old art dealer Todd Brassner, has put the skyscraper and its residents in the spotlight. Four firefighters were injured but the blaze was contained, prompting the President to praise the strength of the tower.  The injured firefighters didn’t think so

  • Although he retains an office there, since picking up the keys to the White House T-RUMP and his wife Melania no longer spend much time at their penthouse.  The tycoon initially moved into T-RUMP Tower - which cost about £150million to build - with his first wife Ivana and their children.

  • Soon show business stars were beating a path to the skyscraper. In that first decade the actor Bruce Willis, singer Paul Anka and entertainer Liberace all bought apartments. Willis eventually put his on the market for 12.5 million in 2005. 
    Another early resident was the chat show host Johnny Carson, but he left under a cloud in 1987 following a row over a missing coat. Two T-RUMP employees, who were accused of stealing the garment, were duly sacked... only for Carson to later shamefacedly admit that he had found it.

  • Few tenants attracted as much publicity for the building, on the site of a former department store, as Michael Jackson. For 10 months in 1994 the singer rented a duplex on the 63rd floor - once the home of Trump's parents - and turned one of the bedrooms into a mirrored dance studio. Jackson is said to have paid about $97,200 a month, compared with the average price now of around $42,500 a month.

  • British composer and impresario Andrew Lloyd Webber sold his 5,300-square-foot apartment on the 59th and 60th floors for an eye watering $14,500, 000 in 2010.

  • Other residents are notorious rather than starry, including Jean-Claude Duvalier, the Haitian dictator overthrown in a 1986 uprising, whose million apartment was owned through a Panamanian holding company.

  • The one-time renter of a home on floor 63 was career criminal Jay Weinberg, who was convicted in the late 1980s of one of the biggest medical care frauds in US history.

  • WHAT THEY DON’T TELL YOU -  These days The Donald owns about one-third of the tower which carries his name, a stake which is worth about $407 million but has some $85 million in debt attached. However should anyone need reminding who is in charge, there is a Trump bar, a Trump grill and a T-RUMP café in the complex.
  • t’s also emerged that the Pentagon signed an 18-month deal, costing $2.5 million of taxpayers’ cash, so it could have a command post on the same floors as Trump’s penthouse.   The fact that the President rarely sets foot in the building now was apparently overlooked.

  • Recent residents also include Guido Lombardi, on floors 62 and 63, a self-styled Italian count, Trump supporter and US representative of the anti-immigrant Northern League political party in his homeland.  “To me this is the centre of New York City, and New York City is the centre of the world,” he says.  In that case move the electric chair to the center of the room.

  • Former football administrator José Maria Marin is currently under house arrest, after conviction in connection with bribery charges.  ANOTHER FINE TENANT IN THE HALL OF SHAME SO CLOSELY ASSOCIATED WITH T-RUMP

  • Italian fashion heiress Suzette Mion, an old pal of Ivana, calls an apartment on floor 32 home.  

  • Juan Beckmann Vidal, who controls the Jose Cuervo tequila brand.  They say neighbors are a bit like family, in that you don't get to choose them.  However, if you move into Trump Tower you can rest assured that whatever their background everyone will have at least one thing in common. They are all filthy rich and don’t ask how they got that way unless you work for the 9th District or the FBI.




  • Unpaid laborers - In 1983, a class-action lawsuit was filed against the T-RUMP Organization concerning unpaid pension and medical obligations to labor unions that helped build the towers. Trump had paid $774,000 to a window-cleaning company that employed undocumented Polish immigrants during the renovation of an adjoining building. 

  • T-RUMP testified in 1990 he was unaware that 200 undocumented Polish immigrants, some of whom lived at the site during a 1980 transit strike, and worked round-the-clock shifts, were involved in the destruction of the Bonwit-Teller building and the T-RUMP Tower project. T-RUMP said he rarely visited the demolition site and never noticed the laborers, who were visually distinct for their lack of hard hats. 

  • After the laborers filed for a mechanic’s lien over unpaid wages, they said a T-RUMP Organization lawyer threatened to have the Immigration and Naturalization Service deport them.  A judge ruled in favor of the Polish laborers in 1991, saying that the organization had to pay the workers. The contractor was ultimately ordered to pay the laborers $254,000.

  • The case went through several appeals by both sides as well as non-jury trials, and was reassigned to different judges several times. The original named plaintiff, plaintiffs’ attorney, and two co-defendants, died during the litigation, leading Judge Kevin Duffy to compare it unfavorably to Charles Dickens' fictional case Jarndyce and Jarndyce in June 1998, when he was assigned the case after the death of the previous presiding judge. 

  • T-RUMP testified that he and an executive used the pseudonym "John Baron" in some of his business dealings, although Trump said he did not do so until years after Trump Tower was constructed. A labor lawyer testified that he was threatened over the phone with a $100 million lawsuit by a John Baron who supposedly worked for the Trump Organization.  Donald Trump later told a reporter, "Lots of people use pen names. Ernest Hemingway used one.”  

  • The lawsuit was ultimately settled in 1999, with its records sealed. In November 2017, U.S. District Judge Loretta A. Preska ordered the settlement documents unsealed. In the settlement, T-RUMP agreed to pay a total of $1.375 million, which, according to the plaintiffs’ lawyer, was the full amount that could have been recovered at trial.

  • There were several other controversies related to the construction process. In one case, Trump sued a contractor for "total incompetence." Construction was also halted twice because minority rights’ groups protested outside the Trump Tower site to condemn the dearth of minority construction workers.

  • T-RUMP was also involved in a disagreement with Mayor Koch about whether the tower should get a tax exemption. In 1985, Trump was one of the plaintiffs in a lawsuit against the state in the New York State Court of Appeals concerning the payment of a 10% state tax in the event that a real estate property is transacted for $1 million or more. The exemption was worth between $15 million and $20 million. The tax on T-RUMP Tower was upheld in a 4 to 1 decision.
  • The City of New York granted T-RUMP permission to build the top 20 stories of the building in exchange for operating the atrium as a city-administered, privately owned public space. In the lobby of the building are two Trump merchandise kiosks (one of which replaced a long public bench) operating out of compliance with city regulations. 

  • The city issued a notice of violation in July 2015, demanding the bench be put back in place. Although the Trump Organization initially said that the violation was without merit, a lawyer speaking for Trump's organization stated in January 2016 that the kiosks would be removed in two to four weeks, before an expected court ruling.

  • In 2015, journalist David Cay Johnston questioned the particular use of concrete and suggested there was a connection with organized crime.  “ Trump didn’t just do business with mobbed-up concrete companies: he also probably met personally with Anthony Salerno at the townhouse of notorious New York fixer Roy Cohn ... at a time when other developers in New York were pleading with the FBI to free them of mob control of the concrete business.” 
    Barrett himself questioned some of Trump’s business dealings in a Daily Beast article in 2011, and that concrete was one of “several dozen” suspected mob connections that T-RUMP had.  There are 3500 lawsuits against T-RUMP and his “friends” in the courts which will get dragged on and on by his retained lawyers till exhaustion by the plaintiffs.


WASHINGTON President Donald Trump has filed financial disclosure statements that appear to misstate the value and profitability of his Scotland golf courses by $165 million, possibly violating federal laws that are punishable by jail time.

Trump claimed in his 2018 U.S. filing that his Turnberry and Aberdeen resorts were each worth more than $50 million. For that same time period, he filed balance sheets with the United Kingdom government showing that their combined debt exceeded their assets by 47.9 million British pounds the equivalent of $64.8 million at the exchange rate on Dec. 31, 2017, the date of the last U.K. filing available.

His 2018 “public financial disclosure” filed with the U.S. Office of Government Ethics also claims those two resorts earned him “income” of $23.8 million. His filings with the U.K. Companies House office in Edinburgh for that period showed the resorts had actually lost 4.6 million pounds equal to $6.3 million.

His U.S. disclosure statement also fails to mention $199.5 million in loans Trump has made to those resorts: $54.9 million from him personally to Trump International, Scotland in Aberdeenshire; $144.6 million from his trust to Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire.

Knowingly providing false or incomplete information on that form is a violation of the Ethics in Government Act punishable by up to a year in jail. Signing the form attesting to the untrue information constitutes making a false statement, punishable by up to five years in prison.

“The numbers don’t appear to add up,” said Virginia Canter, an ethics law expert with Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. She added, though, that OGE regulations give filers a fair amount of latitude in determining asset value. “That said, it’s not at all clear after reviewing the U.K. balance sheet for Aberdeen how they came to $50 million. I think it raises legitimate questions.”

The White House declined to comment on the discrepancies between the U.S. and U.K. filings. Sheri Dillon, Trump’s outside lawyer who handles his financial disclosures, did not respond to HuffPost queries.

Early Tuesday evening, after this article was published and days after HuffPost first sought comment, the Trump Organization, his family business that operates the resorts, responded through Chief Legal Officer Alan Garten, who said the two sets of statements are filed under different accounting and legal standards. “As a result, while both filings provide financial information, the filings each have distinct reporting requirements and standards. Thus, the two filings cannot and should not be compared,” Garten wrote in an email.

He did not respond to follow-up questions about the widely divergent claims regarding assets and income and why T-RUMP failed to disclose the two loans.


In any case, the false and missing information on his 2018 filing has been false and missing on Trump’s forms repeatedly, since before he even took office.  On May 16, 2016, for example, then-candidate Trump also claimed on his financial disclosure forms that the two Scotland resorts were worth more than $100 million, even though he filed papers with Companies House on Dec. 31, 2015, acknowledging that the courses had a combined value of negative $32.1 million.

U.S. filings also included erroneous information regarding Trump’s Doonbeg resort in Ireland, which similarly requires annual disclosures from privately held companies. In 2015, 2016 and 2017, Trump told the Irish government that the course had lost millions of dollars $7.2 million in all. In that same period, Trump claimed on his American financial disclosures that the course had provided him tens of millions of dollars in income, totaling $37.4 million.

Trump’s golf courses in Scotland and Ireland offer unique insights into the state of Trump’s businesses because they are required to submit detailed financial documents annually, even though they are privately held. In the United States, where the vast majority of Trump’s businesses are located, there is no such disclosure requirement meaning there is no straightforward way of determining whether Trump has similarly misstated the asset value and profitability of his U.S. properties.

Americans would have a clearer understanding of the actual financial health of Trump’s businesses had he kept his initial promise to release his tax returns if he ran for president. But Trump reneged on that pledge almost immediately after entering the race. At first he claimed he would release the returns after “routine audits” had been completed, before eventually arguing that Americans had voted for him anyway and that they were not interested in seeing his taxes. In doing so, he became the first major-party nominee since Watergate to fail to disclose his returns.

Trump’s supposed great wealth was a major selling point for him during his campaign in the Republican primaries. Weeks after entering the race in June 2015, Trump declared in a press release that his net worth was “in excess of TEN BILLION DOLLARS.” In a recent speech, he claimed the presidency was forcing him to lose billions: “It’s probably costing me from three to five billion,” he told workers at a petrochemical plant in western Pennsylvania last week. “I don’t care. I want to do the right job.”

Both of those assertions are almost certainly false.  In the 2005 book TrumpNation, business journalist Timothy L. O’Brien wrote that Trump was most likely worth no more than $250 million, not the many billions of dollars he was claiming at the time. Trump sued him for defamation, but lost and in the process lied dozens of times about his business dealings in a deposition taken by O’Brien’s lawyers.

In 2015, National Journal found that T-RUMP had made so many poor business decisions over the years that had he simply taken the fortune his father placed him in charge of in 1974 and put it into a broad index fund, he would have been far wealthier than he wound up.


Despite those and a great deal of other published reports that detailed his multiple casino bankruptcies and poor track record in business, Republican voters chose to support him anyway.

Rick Tyler, who worked for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s campaign in the 2016 GOP presidential primaries, said Republican voters were not paying attention to news coverage that picked apart Trump’s creation myth. “His ostentatious opulence and his willingness to flaunt it led many Republicans to believe that he possessed the business acumen needed to straighten out Washington,” Tyler said. “Republicans should now acknowledge that assumption was false.”

Fergus Cullen, a former chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party and a Trump critic, said he doubts Trump’s loyal supporters will care whether Trump is really as rich as he says or, frankly, whether he broke the law by falsifying his financial disclosure statement.

“It matters to me. But does it matter to voters? I think we had an election on that three years ago,” Cullen said. “It was all out there before the last election. And enough voters were able to set it aside.”

If Trump is, indeed, knowingly providing false or incomplete information about his golf courses, it would not be the first time he has violated the plain language requirements of the financial disclosure form.

His very first filing as president, on June 14, 2017, did not mention the $130,000 he owed Michael Cohen for paying hush money to a porn star in the days before the 2016 election. Trump disclosed that loan in his 2018 filing in the form of a footnote.

Cohen, who was Trump’s longtime lawyer and “fixer,” is now in federal prison after pleading guilty to a variety of crimes, including the election law violation on behalf of Trump.


This will run into millions of dollars of corruption even during the presidency

The emoluments clause, also called the foreign emoluments clause, is a provision of the US Constitution (Article I, Section 9, Paragraph 8) that generally prohibits federal officeholders from receiving any gift, payment, or other thing of value from a foreign state or its rulers, officers, or representatives. 

The clause also provides that:  No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

The Constitution also contains a “domestic emoluments clause” (Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 7), which prohibits the president from receiving any “Emolument” from the federal government or the states beyond “a Compensation” for his “Services” as chief executive.  Bottom Line he is stealing from America and not abiding by the rules, under investigation. 



☑️  Campaign Conspiracy and the Trump Organization’s Finances: Despite the myriad cases unfolding from the special counsel, the White House’s most immediate legal jeopardy increasingly appears to stem from federal prosecutors in New York digging into Trump’s alleged financial shenanigans. 

☑️  Inauguration Funding: Late last week, The Wall Street Journal broke word that prosecutors were digging into the record $107 million raised and spent by the Trump inauguration committee, potentially with concerns about where that money came from and where it went, based in part on documents and evidence seized during the Michael Cohen investigation. 

☑️  Trump SuperPAC Funding: Related to the news about the inauguration inquiries was word that prosecutors are digging into the funding of a Trump SuperPAC, Rebuilding America Now, where Paul Manafort also played a role.

☑️  Foreign Lobbying: Robert Mueller also handed off information he uncovered during the Manafort money laundering probe to prosecutors in New York. According to news reports, he referred questions about at least a trio of other lobbyists—Tony Podesta, Vin Weber, and Greg Craig—and whether they allegedly failed to appropriately register as foreign agents for work related to Ukraine. 


☑️  Maria Butina and the NRA: The guilty plea last week by Russian agent and gun-rights enthusiast Butina came with an extensive cooperation agreement, including the possibility of her meeting with investigators without lawyers present. While the most immediate next target of the investigation appears to be Butina’s boyfriend, Republican operative Paul Erickson—he was sent a so-called “target” letter by prosecutors recently—questions have also swirled about 2016 campaign funding by the National Rifle Association and the reach of Russia into the US conservative movement. campaign, giving him an opportunity to praise Russia.


☑️  Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova: The alleged chief accountant of the Internet Research Agency was indicted separately earlier this fall by prosecutors in northern Virginia and the Justice Department’s unit that handles counterintelligence and espionage cases, not by Mueller’s special counsel office. Khusyaynova was charged with activity that went above and beyond the 2016 campaign, including efforts to meddle in this year’s midterms. Why she was prosecuted separately remains a puzzle.

☑️  Turkish Influence: According to court documents, Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn contributed to two investigations beyond the Russia probe. While both were redacted in his court case, there are strong hints, including reporting by The New York Times, that one of those two cases includes a grand jury in northern Virginia focused on illegal influence by the Turkish government. 


☑️  Tax Case: In the wake of a New York Times investigation that found Donald Trump had apparently benefited from upwards of $400 million in tax schemes, city officials said they were investigating Trump’s tax payments, as did the New York State Tax Department. Longtime lawyer and Trump fixer Cohen also reported in his own court filing that he met with investigators from the New York Attorney General’s Office, although the court filings didn’t explain what the investigation entailed.

☑️  The Trump Foundation: The New York Attorney General sued the Trump Foundation this summer, charging it with, as The New York Times summarized, “sweeping violations of campaign finance laws, self-dealing and illegal coordination with the presidential campaign.

 ☑️   Emoluments Lawsuit: The attorneys general for Maryland and DC sent out subpoenas earlier this month for T-RUMP Organization and hotel financial records relating to their lawsuit alleging that the president is in breach of the so-called Emoluments Clause of the Constitution, which appears to prohibit the president from accepting payments from foreign powers while in office. 



☑️  FAKE DONATIONS - HE STOLE THE MONEY FOR HIMSELF - The Feds closed Donald’s charities and are now under investigation for making false donations and photo-ops  of 100,000 dollars to various charities and not really doing it.  They were photo-ops and he never delivered.  Trump has 16 going on 17 Federal and State Investigations concurrent.  
Note: Al Capone beat the Feds at every turn and it was income tax that got him... put the puzzle together TRUMP refused to show his returns for the past ten years. It will get interesting.

☑️  CERTIFIED SCUMBAG DRAFT DODGER - The truth about our draft dodging president is out - Nothing lower than a draft dodger, a true scumbag.  Vietnam cost us 58,000 young Americans died and he pulled strings as a coward, not as a conscientious objector.

☑️  THE LAST GUARDRAIL -- The Secretary of Defense James Mattis the last of the Generals Trump spoke so highly about obviously had more integrity than fearless leader,  resigned today. This is a devastating blow to foreign policy and our collaboration with all our allies who do not trust T-RUMP.  

☑️  HARD TO FIND GOOD HELP -- Trump can’t really find a new Chief of staff as the good people are smart enough to stay away, the Trump regime is now considered toxic to careers.  ( This is a clue for the weak-minded )

☑️  MONEY LAUNDERING - It is under investigation,  about 100% truethat the Saudis and the Russians have been laundering through TRUMP Enterprises.

☑️  YEMEN AND MURDER -- And backing SAUDI ARABIA that with support the war in Yemen thats killed unknown numbers of people and brought almost 60-80,000 people to starvation that is eminent. 

☑️  PAYOFFS -- 500 rooms rented at Trumps hotels is one of hundred of payoffs from the Saudis. It’s not chump change, try $500 a night x 500 rooms equals  $250,000.  Duh, you think there is an interest in money changing and collusion. 

☑️  ILLEGAL COACHING -- Jared, Trumps son in law, caught coaching the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia,  now a MbS,  young, belligerent, arrogant, dangerous murderer on how to handle and manipulate the Saudi position in the US for the killing of  Khashoggi, a journalist in a brutal ambush slaying. 

☑️  IMMIGRANTS OR PRISONERS - Fourteen thousand immigrants still in federal housing ( Like prison camps) while Trump plays politics over a wall no one wants.

☑️  BORDER FIASCO -- He spent 221 Million dollars to move troops to the border for an imagined invasion, guess who pays for that. Who cannot act under the laws of “Posse Commititus”.  And he gave them the power to use lethal force.

☑️  IRONY OVER A CHANT -- The “ Lock her up chant”, first spoken by General Michael Flynn was a GOP harassment quickly adapted by stupid people with no sense of value in truth,  just simple minded people.  The IRONY is that the man who started it [Flynn] is the one that probably will be going to jail, guilty and pleaded for what he did as a traitor to his country.  Words have meanings and his words now have become... the greatest backfire in politics... The new FLYNN chant is  “Hang Him High”.

☑️  CAPTAIN BULLSH*T -- He used the Thanksgiving message to the troops from the golf course and ranted politically to our best servicemen. Someone said there is a lot of sand in Syria, so is there a lot of sand in Donald’s fake golf game. see the story “CUT HIS BALLS OFF” 

☑️  RAKE CALIFORNIA -- He blamed the fires in California on the Forestry Department for not raking the leaves in California.  The President Claims California fires are caused by not raking leaves.  Idiotic
