Skip to comments.A $2M check, Harry Reid and one frustrated prosecutor
Posted on 12/13/2016 8:12:59 PM PST by Enlightened1
(Salt Lake Tribune) The $2 million cashiers check was drawn at a St. George bank Nov. 5, 2010.
From there, it was sent by FedEx to a Los Angeles attorney who represented Ireland-based Full Tilt Poker.
Made out to Mail Media LTD a Full Tilt-owned entity used to launder online-gambling funds the millions then were deposited at Basler Kantonalbank in Switzerland, where Mail Media had an account.
And from there, Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating whether it went into a Marshall Islands account in the name of Searchlight Holding Inc. to benefit, or even bribe, Harry Reid, the once-powerful majority leader of the U.S. Senate whom online poker companies had been courting to push a bill to legalize their gaming across the nation.
But documents gathered by The Salt Lake Tribune from state and federal investigations, court filings and public records requests including audio recordings of interviews and thousands of pages of transcripts, summaries by investigators, emails, requests for evidence and other materials show that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI failed to pursue a vigorous investigation of this money and any potential tie to Reid.
The available evidence contains no direct connection between the money and the Nevada Democrat, only that Rawlings wants to dig into that possibility.
Federal authorities have stymied his effort, leaving Rawlings to wonder why. Were agents ordered to steer clear of that money trail? And, if so, by whom? In short, was there a cover-up?
Harry Reid is presumed innocent and may actually be innocent, Rawlings said in a written statement, adding that a real, vibrant grand jury investigation could exonerate him.

Will he live long enough to go to prison?
SIC EM, Donald!!!!!
Now I wonder if this might have anything to do with his exercise equipment attacking him and taking out one of his eyes. Will that be his defense? The mob made me do it, or else.
LOCK HIM UP.
wow... Donald is going to put em all in jail :)
Not to worry. Obama will issue a blanket pardon to include anyone who didn’t buck him.
In my view, he is a skunk. And he is regarded as such by many, including by many in the church in which he is somehow still a member.
I hear exercise equipment gets really brutal if it’s double-crossed!
What’s the big deal?
Doesn’t everybody use a string of front companies when transferring money?
It’s the honest way of doing business.
“Word is”...........Harry looks to be in trouble. Pray this gets legs and he is investigated! I for one am still not tired of winning against these corrupt snots.
I just don’t understand how one has to be a crook at that age when he’s already got plenty of money.
I just can’t imagine Dingy Harry doing anything dishonest. /s
Why would the Clintons keep stealing, with all their millions? Evil keeps growing. These people sold their souls.
Truth be known, I think most of the guys in D.C. are crooks on some level. They all leave rich. How does that work? They aren’t paid that much.
Look at Obama. He’s got four or five $4 to $5 million dollar properties. He’s never made that kind of money.
They get used to the graft. They only have a few years left, so THEY THINK, I better get while the gettin’s good.
Then a guy like Trump comes along, and they are caught with their pajama trap door down.
They won’t tell on each other generally, because they are all doing it.
let’s hope, it would be poetic justice for someone to do to him what he’s been doing to the country!
One guy’s graft is another guy’s DONATION.
I wrote Harry: Money, Mob and Influence the only expose on Reid crimes. I can tell you that the Salt Lake Tribune article is just a teaser, the bribes go far beyond the one mentioned. Reid was taking money from mob pimp Joe Conforte in te 70s. He got $1 million from Lefty Rosenthal. I track about 20 bribes over the years.
And it isnt old news. The jeremy Johnson stuff is from about 2010. But Reids buddies were infolved in buying an essential monoply on medical marijuana in Nevada. He was selling Visas at the SLS casino through his son Rory Reid. Reid also links to bogus solar energy contracts through John Podesta.
A WHOLE bunch more. Huge coverup is now cracking.
Trump campaign and Sessions need to contact me. Reid isnt going away.
The same reason Hillary was never charged in the email investigation.
He was probably has been a bad actor from youth. Harry Reid did not change, the cost of buying him just got higher each year he was in office.
I hear ya.
RATs, RINOs, Congressional crooks of any stripe.
Might be a good time to take an overseas vacation....on a one-way ticket.
This would be so sweet.
From 10 years ago, the Harry Reid land scam sing-along
Yea we’ll see.
We’ve heard that chant before only to be told “we no longer care...right?”
Harry Reid’s NOT ‘innocent’ and anybody with half a brain shouldn’t ‘assume’ he is.
This could be VERY serious s**t.
The public understands and hates bribery.
Remember, the case against HRC re: lack email security, was always the little fish. The much more serious case is the bribery by paying WJC huge amounts for speeches, then DOS and others giving the entity paying the bribe favorable consideration on important matters.
Watch Clinton Cash on youtube.
The Clintons could always argue “no harm - no foul” on the emails, and they would have always gotten one HRC sycophant to at least hang the jury.
Bribery, that is serious s**t, and I’ll bet there are plenty of FBI agents quietly working these case who will submit reports on Jan 21.
Maybe you should contact them?
Sessions has got to have had a bellyfull of this guy
Drain the Swamp.
Pray America woke
Harry is a mormon.
He’s still a member of the Mormon Church because he tithes a lot.
Get Dingy Harry!
Maybe he’ll start squealing soon..

one word ((HABIT))
Now I wonder if this might have anything to do with his exercise equipment attacking him and taking out one of his eyes. Will that be his defense? The mob made me do it, or else.>>> his brother beat him up.
I forget where I read it, but Reid was worth about 1.7 when he entered public office and now he’s worth 2 million and he and his family have property all over the place in NV
Good times! :-)
“Maybe you should contact them?”
You have no idea how many people I have contacted. Almost always to deaf ears. People just don’t care, I rarely get phone calls returned.
And the converse:
Here you go:
Wasn’t it Reid that wasn’t seeking another term this year?
If so, maybe this has something to do with it.
