Trump has deep ties to organized crime — federal investigators know it, and the public is catching up

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

As President Trump discovers the prerogative of unilaterally making war, the media gaze has turned away from the ongoing FBI, House and Senate investigation of his Russia ties to the simpler dramas of cruise missiles, big bombs, and tough but loose talk on North Korea.

Yet even “the mother of all bombs” cannot obliterate the accumulating body of evidence about his relationship with Russian organized crime figures and the not unrelated question about whether he and his entourage colluded with Russian officials in the 2016 presidential election. The story, notes Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, is “Hiding in plain sight.”

The evidence of pre-election collusion between Trump and the Russians, while growing, is far from definitive. The evidence on Trump’s organized crime ties is stronger. Says Marshall:

“If we’d never heard about Russian intelligence hacking of the 2016 election or Carter Page or Paul Manafort or Sergei Kislyak this [Trump’s organized crime connections] would seem like an extraordinarily big deal. And indeed it is an extraordinarily big deal.”

Chronologically speaking, Trump’s ties to organized crime figures came first. Mutually beneficial transactions dating back to the 1990s led to closer relations in the 2000s and culminated in the contacts during the 2016 campaign. It all began with Russians who wanted to get their money out of the country.

The question still remains: so what? What is anyone going to do with this stuff with the DoJ and both houses of Congress under Republican control?

Where could this possibly be prosecuted? New York maybe, I don't know. Where can it even be seriously investigated?

The administration and its operatives throughout the Executive branch are going to do everything thing they can to stifle, impede and quash any meaningful investigation.

So what next?

tRump is from NEW YORK CITY.  

If you've ever lived there you understand that corruption and graft are the order of the day. Day in and day out, 365 days a year.  

You CAN'T be on top of the food chain in real estate without playing along.
If anyone thinks he got there in honest dealings, you deluding yourself.

Hillary took NY by 20%. Fake #45 took Florida by 1%.

They both have what Canadian Teddy Cruz calls New York values.
