THE TOPICS OF INVESTIGATIONS THAT ARE 

AWAITING OUR PRESIDENT WHEN HE NO LONGER

CAN CLAIM EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE

He’ll Be Well Received, Think Of It 

As The Nuremberg Trials after WWII


VANITY FAIR - GREAT ARTICLE by Bess Levin

In September 2019, Donald Trump’s lawyers debuted a bold new legal argument. Attempting to quash a subpoena from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, which had requested eight years of tax returns to determine if the T-RUMP Organization has falsified business records relating to payouts made to a porn star and a Playboy model, the president’s attorneys insisted that such a request was unconstitutional because the founding fathers believed sitting presidents should not be subject to the criminal process, which would “distract the president” from his duties. 

Pressed by a judge on this argument, and the hypothetical T-RUMP busted out during the 2016 election—that he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and not “lose any voters”—attorney William Consovoy insisted that yes, that kind of thing would fall under this concept of “presidential immunity,” i.e. Trump could put a bullet in a random pedestrian and avoid prosecution until moving out of the White House.

Unsurprisingly, actual legal experts weren’t convinced of this argument and neither was the Supreme Court, which ruled last July, in the words of Reuters, “that there are limits to the powers of the presidency and stoutly reaffirmed the principle that not even the president is above the law.” 

Still, Trump’s lackeys, which include the Attorney General of the United States, have done their part to shield him from situations wherein he could be convicted of a variety of crimes, getting him through almost an entire term without an embarrassing situation wherein a sitting president is, say, found guilty of falsifying business records regarding a hush money payment he made to an adult-film star.

Unfortunately for Trump, if he loses the 2020 election, he’ll no longer be able to use the staff of the Justice Department as his personal lawyers. That’s a worrisome thing for a guy who’s potentially committed numerous crimes, and we know this because Trump is reportedly soiling himself in fear over what he might be prosecuted for, and maybe go to jail over, after he leaves office.


SIDEBAR:  Defeat Is His Achilles Heel - Like Most Cowards

Per the New York Times:  Seldom far from Mr. Trump’s thoughts, however, is the possibility of defeat—and the potential consequences of being ejected from the White House. In unguarded moments, Mr. Trump has for weeks told advisers that he expects to face intensifying scrutiny from prosecutors if he loses.  He is concerned not only about existing investigations in New York, but the potential for new federal probes as well, according to people who have spoken with him.

As The New Yorker’s Jane Mayer wrote in an article published over the weekend, the world awaiting Trump when and if he loses the election is a dark one, and not just because he’ll no longer have a taxpayer-funded staff at his disposal to lie for him:

Given that more than a dozen investigations and civil suits involving Trump are currently under way, he could be looking at an endgame even more perilous than the one confronted by Nixon. The Presidential historian Michael Beschloss said of Trump, “If he loses, you have a situation that’s not dissimilar to that of Nixon when he resigned. Nixon spoke of the cell door clanging shut.” Trump has famously survived one impeachment, two divorces, six bankruptcies, twenty-six accusations of sexual misconduct, and an estimated four thousand lawsuits. Few people have evaded consequences more cunningly. That run of good luck may well end, perhaps brutally, if he loses to Joe Biden. Even if Trump wins, grave legal and financial threats will loom over his second term.

Two of the investigations into Trump are being led by powerful state and city law-enforcement officials in New York. Cyrus Vance, Jr., the Manhattan District Attorney, and Letitia James, New York’s attorney general, are independently pursuing potential criminal charges related to Trump’s business practices before he became President. Because their jurisdictions lie outside the federal realm, any indictments or convictions resulting from their actions would be beyond the reach of a Presidential pardon. 

Trump’s legal expenses alone are likely to be daunting. (By the time Bill Clinton left the White House, he’d racked up more than ten million dollars in legal fees.) And Trump’s finances are already under growing strain. During the next four years, according to a stunning recent Times report, Trump—whether reëlected or not—must meet payment deadlines for more than three hundred million dollars in loans that he has personally guaranteed; much of this debt is owed to such foreign creditors as Deutsche Bank. Unless he can refinance with the lenders, he will be on the hook.

Soon some of the people he screwed in New York City  ( One reason he doesn’t live there anymore) is his NYC fan base ready to tear him apart for ruining their lives… At one time his operation had a total of 3500 lawsuits  and his lawyers probably with a few paid off  judges kept stalling and stalling till the plaintiffs could not afford their lawyers anymore… I know people he screwed… and never paid for services for supplies… Hint: That might explain my deep hatred for this man.


The  Loss Means He Loses A Lot More Than You Might Think
Washington (CNN)New York authorities investigating the T-RUMP Organization have expanded their inquiries to include tax write-offs involving millions of dollars in T-RUMPS phone fraud traditional family values, being a third generation scumbag.His grandfather  was a pimp and ran a whorehouse, his father about as corrupt as you can get and Donald, good at corruption but a frickin moron,  its of fake consulting fees, according to people familiar with the investigation.

Investigators with the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which is conducting a broad criminal investigation, and the New York attorney general’s office, which has a civil inquiry under way, have subpoenaed the T-RUMP Organization seeking records relating to those consulting fees.  Tax evasion put Capone in jail, not his murders.

The subpoenas were in response to a New York Times investigation into President Donald Trump's tax returns that first disclosed that he took $26 million in write-offs that came from fees he paid to consultants, including an apparent $747,000 fee that the Times said matched a payment disclosed by Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump. 

The New York Times first reported the subpoenas had been sent. There is no suggestion that Ivanka Trump accounted for the payment improperly. Representatives for the Manhattan district attorney, New York attorney general and Trump Organization declined to comment.

Ivanka Trump reacted to the Times' story Thursday evening, tweeting, "This is harassment pure and simple. This 'inquiry' by NYC democrats is 100% motivated by politics, publicity and rage. They know very well that there's nothing here and that there was no tax benefit whatsoever. These politicians are simply ruthless."

Alan Garten, general counsel of the Trump Organization, told the Times, "Everything was done in strict compliance with applicable law and under the advice of counsel and tax experts." He added, "All applicable taxes were paid and no party received any undue benefit."

The New York investigations are the most serious facing Trump as he leaves office and becomes a private citizen.

The district attorney has been in a year-long battle over a subpoena for the President's tax returns. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the matter soon. That investigation is wide ranging and prosecutors have suggested in court filings it could include anything from insurance fraud, tax fraud or schemes to defraud -- the equivalent of a federal bank fraud charge.

The New York attorney general's investigation is focusing on whether the Trump Organization or Trump improperly inflated the value of certain assets in violation of tax laws or when seeking loans and the forgiveness of a $100 million loan. They have identified at least four T-RUMP properties that are under scrutiny.


Higher Stakes And Long Overdue
(CNN) The stakes became much higher for T-RUMP  after losing 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 he lost and Democratic rival Joe Biden is the President-Elect  the stakes become much higher for T-RUMP because he lost 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." 

Dear Mayor, Politician, President, VP, Governor Senator, Congressperson,
Please don’t offer your bullsh*t thoughts and prayers for those recently killed by bullets…  Enough bullsh*t,  had you done your frickin job you were hired for we might not be here today and not so many dead because of your negligence, and the fact in recent years you and your cohorts have accepted over 31 million dollars in bribes to cover the fake rhetoric by the NRA over the second amendment. 

Yes, you can tell me we have checks and balances to prevent the mass murders but they don’t work.  And I would tell you we do not any help from the GOP because 31 million dollars last years from the NRA is a convincer to the GOP war chest to keep the 2nd Amendment in check which is the greatest lie ever told when Wayne Lapierre  (Wane LA Pee’s in the air)

Find the whole truth about fake patriots, many low IQ individual members at   THE NRA  who have been donating money to the crooks taking your money under false pretenses and getting rich… 

And to the members who are the delusional membership by the rhetoric spewed by Wayne Lapierre, who should be hanged as a traitor, the blood of the innocents, men, women and the children is on your hands… and tell your loving President that all these gun nuts are not Patriots,  some are gun nuts with the false power the weapon gives these losers… lacking compassion, crainial exercise and thinking above that of a cro-magnon and sleeping with their AR-15 next to them in bed.  

Tell that to the draft-dodging “ Captain Bone Spurs”  a brilliant military mind above that of our generals, so he tells us…  Another frickin loser… Donald the Dork who cheated and lied to the draft.  Five friends on mine died there…


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 T-RUMP 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 NY 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 Brothers In Coins 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 Financial Lies And Corruptions
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.


His History Of Fake Wealth…
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.

VOTERS BACKED T-RUMP ANYWAY —  STUPIDITY

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.

 

T-RUMP IN VIOLATION OF EMOLUMENTS
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. 

 

INVESTIGATIONS BY THE US ATTORNEY  -  SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NY

☑️  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. 

INVESTIGATIONS BY THE US ATTORNEY —  FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

☑️  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.


INVESTIGATIONS BY THE US ATTORNEY  THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA

☑️  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. 


INVESTIGATIONS BY NYC, NY STATE OTHER STATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL

☑️  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. 

 

 MORE POSSIBLE PROBLEMS 

☑️  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 )

☑️  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.

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”
