(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!
