A new lawsuit connects the dots and exposes the Trump family as a racketeering enterprise that bilked thousands of hard-working Americans out of their money.
The New York Times reported:
A new lawsuit accuses President Trump, his company and three of his children of using the Trump name to entice vulnerable people to invest in sham business opportunities.
The 160-page complaint alleges that Mr. Trump and his family received secret payments from three business entities in exchange for promoting them as legitimate opportunities, when in reality they were get-rich-quick schemes that harmed investors, many of whom were unsophisticated and struggling financially.
But the new suit alleges “a pattern of racketeering activity” involving three other organizations. Roberta A. Kaplan and Andrew G. Celli Jr., two lawyers for the plaintiffs, said in a statement that they were not aware of “any prior case against the Trumps alleging consumer fraud on this scale.”
Trump and his kids pushed get rich quick scams
Trump and his kids, Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka spent more than a decade conning hard-working, and in some cases financially struggling people out of their money. The scams that the Trumps were pushing involved those old staples of real estate secrets and pyramid schemes. The activities that the lawsuit outlines look a lot like Trump University.
A recent investigation revealed that the Trump family business is nothing more than a decades-long con, except instead of stealing money from poor people, the Trump family conned investors and made money even when building projects failed or went belly up. The Trump family makes their money by taking it out of the pockets of others.
The lawsuit comes days before the midterm election, and after Trump’s self-made man myth has been exposed as a fraud. Winning the White House was the worst thing ever to happen to Trump. The president’s crimes are being exposed, and he and his family will be lucky if they don’t end up in orange jumpsuits.
