Prosecutors unlikely to charge Trump Org executives, sources say

Posted on 07/12/2019 3:52:12 PM PDT by springwater13

A federal investigation into whether Trump Organization executives violated campaign-finance laws appears to be wrapping up without charges being filed, according to people familiar with the matter.

For months, federal prosecutors in New York have examined whether company officials broke the law, including in their effort to reimburse Michael Cohen for hush-money payments he made to women alleging affairs with his former boss, President Donald Trump.

In recent weeks, however, their investigation has quieted, the people familiar with the inquiry said, and prosecutors now don't appear poised to charge any Trump Organization executives in the probe that stemmed from the case against Cohen.

A spokesman for the Manhattan US Attorney's office declined to comment. An attorney for the Trump Organization declined to comment.

No surprise. Trump knows how to make money. He doesn’t have to cheat or steal to get it

Everything they have made up, insinuated, conjured up in a Witch’s caldron, dreamed up on Acid, alleged on CNNMSLSD, leveled by the Gnu Yak Thymes, rustled up by Herr Mueller, and dreamed up by Strozk and his Beautiful Lover Lisa, went POOF! It continues, unabated because they aren’t being treated for their delusions...

I love your post...hysterical. Some may think it is pure fun, but it is the actual truth! I could accuse you of taking advantage/exploiting the other side, but I won’t. There are some who are in tears right now.

Per the very long Forbes article reciting the details about Trump business efforts in Moscow in the Mueller Report, the event stopping those efforts was Trunp’s election as president.

I asked the question to see if anyone here actually knew about the very extensive investigation and reporting about extreme detail of efforts by the Trump business company to build a multiuse tower in Moscow. The efforts apparently took place over several years and involved lots of people but never came to fruition.

We sit on the sidelines and hear all kinds of speculation but I had no clue about the extreme Mueller report detail about the actual, the real, Trump/Russia interactions. It seems that others here did not either. There have been no media reporting

The money sentence in the article is the statement that Mueller did not find Russian collusion to influence the election but did find Trump Collusion with Russia to make money.

Here’s the whole very long article

Trump was probably glad he had that excuse to pull out of the deal. Not enough $$$ anyway for all the aggravation and in light of Russia cast as the badest guy.

Crimes which they may never have discovered if not for the unlawful investigation into Russian collusion. I’m not here to excuse the crimes he committed, but it seems there was no probable cause to launch the investigation that uncovered the evidence, and the crimes are totally unrelated to that investigation. It is clear that a number of people have paid a severe price in an act of political vengeance.
