Chumph Son-in-Law Under FBI Investigation for Charity Scam

The hits just keep on coming.

The Chumph’s son-in-law is now under investigation for a Charity which was supposed to be run for sick children – but the money was diverted into the Chumph commercial empire.

The Chumph criminal empire has used charity scams to bilk millions from givers multiple times, where the money give wind up in the corporate coffers.

Kushner has also used his father in laws position to enrich the businesses, and worked extensively with Russian spies and mob interests.

Finally – there looks like there is going to be an accounting for that.

Orange…Is the new Chumph family attire.

Special counsel is investigating Jared Kushner’s business dealings

Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is investigating the finances and business dealings of Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, as part of the investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

FBI agents and federal prosecutors have also been examining the financial dealings of other Trump associates, including former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Carter Page, who was listed as a foreign-policy adviser for the campaign.

The Washington Post previously reported that investigators were scrutinizing meetings that Kushner held with Russians in December — first with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak, and then with Sergey Gorkov, the head of a state-owned Russian development bank. At the time of that report, it was not clear that the FBI was investigating Kushner’s business dealings.

The officials who described the financial focus of the investigation spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

At the December meeting with Kislyak, Kushner suggested establishing a secure communications line between Trump officials and the Kremlin at a Russian diplomatic facility, according to U.S. officials who reviewed intelligence reports describing Kislyak’s account.

The White House has said that the subsequent meeting with the banker was a pre-inauguration diplomatic encounter, unrelated to business matters. The Russian bank, Vnesheconombank, which has been the subject of U.S. sanctions following Russia’s annexation of Crimea, has said the session was held for business reasons because of Kushner’s role as head of his family’s real estate company. The meeting occurred as Kushner’s company was seeking financing for its troubled $1.8 billion purchase of an office building on Fifth Avenue in New York, and it could raise questions about whether Kushner’s personal financial interests were colliding with his impending role as a public official.

Mueller’s investigation is in a relatively early phase, and it is unclear whether criminal charges will be brought when it is complete.

“We do not know what this report refers to,” Jamie Gorelick, an attorney for Kushner, said in an email. “It would be standard practice for the Special Counsel to examine financial records to look for anything related to ­Russia. Mr. Kushner previously volunteered to share with Congress what he knows about ­Russia-related matters. He will do the same if he is contacted in connection with any other inquiry.”

Kushner has agreed to discuss his Russian contacts with the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting one of several investigations into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Kushner rarely speaks publicly about his role in the White House, but he has become a major figure in the administration with a sprawling list of policy responsibilities that includes Canada and Mexico, China, and peace in the Middle East.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment for this article but said that “the Special Counsel’s Office has undertaken stringent controls to prohibit unauthorized disclosures and will deal severely with any member who engages in this conduct.”

Former Congressional Black Caucus Cabaret Queen’s New Stylish Orange Jumpsuit

Former CBC Cabaret Queen Corrine Brown has been convicted of fraud and larceny in the stealing of hundreds of thousands of dollars from a fake charity she set up supposedly to provide scholarships to underprivileged black kids. She used the money to (what else) throw big parties.

Her next party attire will be the ever so stylish… Orange Jumpsuit.

Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown Convicted Of Stealing From Phony Charity

Former U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown has been found guilty of siphoning hundreds of thousands of dollars from a charity that she and her chief of staff had passed off as a scholarship service for students. The Florida Democrat had faced 22 counts ranging from conspiracy to tax fraud; she was convicted of 18.

Of the more than $800,000 she and Elias “Ronnie” Simmons raised for One Door for Education, member station WJCT reports that just $1,200 actually went where they told donors it would: students’ education. In roughly five years, prosecutors say, the charity distributed just two scholarships.

Prosecutors alleged — and on Thursday, the jury agreed — that Brown and Simmons pocketed the rest of the funds, using them for lavish events such as a golf tournament and luxury boxes for an NFL game and a Beyonce concert.

WJCT has more from the courtroom:

“Assistant U.S. Attorneys Tysen Duva and Eric Olshan painted Brown as an egotistical politician who lived beyond her means. Using bank records, checks, letters, emails and hundreds of other documents, prosecutors made the case Brown directed the deposit of $37,000 of One Door cash into her account. They also claimed she was instrumental in planning nine events that cost the sham charity $330,000.”

Brown had argued that the fraud was entirely the doing of Simmons, who earlier pleaded guilty and testified against her. Brown didn’t speak after the verdict was rendered, but her attorney James Smith told reporters, “I still have a lot of work to do on this case,” referring to the sentencing phase and the motion he plans to file for a new trial.

WJCT’s Ryan Michael Benk reports the sentencing phase could take 90 days or longer for Brown, who left office earlier this year after losing her re-election bid in the district she had represented for nearly a quarter-century.

In Just 100 Days, The Chumph Has Been Sued More than the 3 Previous Real Presidents In their Entire Terms…Combined!

TRUMP HAS BEEN SUED 134 TIMES SINCE BECOMING POTUS, 3X MORE THAN LAST 3 PRESIDENTS COMBINED

From The Boston Globe:

Trump has been sued 134 times in federal court since he was sworn into office, according to a Globe tally based on federal court databases, nearly three times the number of his three predecessors in their early months combined.

The lawsuits include green card holders trying to get into the United States after his travel ban on seven majority-Muslim countries; cities like San Francisco, Richmond, and Seattle suing over a plan to withhold funds from ”sanctuary’’ cities; and even a woman from Quincy, Mass., who went to court contending that the president’s actions have caused “loss of enjoyment of life.” 

At this point in his presidency, Barack Obama faced 26 lawsuits, Bill Clinton was hit with 15 suits, and George W. Bush only faced seven. The dramatic increase in legal action taken against the administration is yet another indicator that the Donald Trump presidency is going to be unlike any other in recent memory (or possibly in the history of the nation).

As The Globe report notes, the massive demonstrations against Trumpist policies are good optics for the so-called “Resistance,” but in terms of getting actual results these suits may actually be a more effective way to combat the administration and the GOP-led Congress.

For example, the selective immigration order, effectively a de facto Muslim ban, was met with massive protests at airports and an influx of volunteer attorneys seeking to help detained travelers. Yet, it was the legal battles fought by states like California, that brought the order and it’s revised sister order to a screeching halt.

Despite controlling both chambers of Congress and a conservative-majority Supreme Court of the United States, the optics-obsessed Trump administration has approached governance with a large focus on executive orders. Constitutional questions about these orders make the most of the cases, though some are unique to Trump.

For example, a wine bar near the Old Post Office hotel managed by the Trump organization claims that the Trump administration “is exercising an unfair competitive advantage because diplomats and lobbyists are booking functions at his hotel to curry favor with him.” Another suit seeks to test in court the assertion that Trump’s ties to businesses violate the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution.

These Former Faux News Execs…Going to Jail

As if sexual assault and racism wasn’t enough – now former Fox News execs are going down for fraud. No big surprise from an organization built to promote lying to the American public, as well as to promote racism, sexism, and other conservative “ideals” of the elderly white American male and sexual molesters of the Fox Cable News Management team.

Looks like that toilet is finally getting a long overdue flush.

Fox business expert indicted on 8 counts then caught berating employees before crying and firing them

Perp Shots of the charged

Former Fox Business News expert and CEO Ryan Tate and his father Richard have been indicted by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office on eight felony charges and one misdemeanor count for their shady Tate Publishing company. The charges include a misdemeanor embezzlement, three felony attempted extortion by threat and each for felony racketeering.

The company was started more than 20 years ago, according to NewsOK and worked with thousands to publish their books and music. Suddenly, however, Tate Publishing was being sued by printing services for millions. They abruptly closed in Jan. 2017 and lost additional suits brought by Xerox and Lighting Source when Tate failed to comply with subpoenas.

The attorney general’s office received over 800 requests to investigate the publishing company for complaints by people who felt they were scammed by the company.

“A review of bank records shows that monies derived from the sale of publishing or music production services were deposited into business checking accounts and then transferred to Ryan Tate and Christy Tate and/or Richard Tate and Rita Tate’s personal checking accounts,” Agent Elizabeth Fullbright said during a press conference.

“Bank records also show that the $50 processing fee checks from authors, made payable to Tate Publishing, were deposited directly into both Tate Publishing checking accounts and the personal bank account of Richard and Rita Tate. Richard and Rita Tate’s account appears to be used for personal transactions, including dining and entertainment at casinos in Oklahoma,” she revealed.

The situation got even worse when snarky political blog The Lost Ogle released an audio recording of company President Ryan Tate

“The righteous will prevail. I’ve spent a lot of time this weekend in tears with my family,” Tate told workers. “Good people are going to lose their jobs. It’s not fair, it’s not right, but that’s the reality of the situation. Any good organization — Jesus himself is the perfect mix of mercy, grace and justice. And I’ve probably failed you that I’ve been a little too lenient and a little too on the side of mercy and grace and not enough justice.”

He went on to say that he’s looked the other way and let a lot of things go.

“I tried to be nice. I trusted you. Good God!” Tate exclaimed. He then accused them of being on Facebook or watching Netflix while at work. “I trust you. But all I get is bellyaching, moaning, groaning, the grass is greener on the other side. How stupid do you have to be, in this day in age, in this economy to even play with fire like that?”

If convicted the elder Tate will likely die in prison while his son “plays with fire” behind bars for quite a while. Additional charges might be added as the investigation continues as they sift through the hundreds of complaints. The attorney general’s office isn’t clear on how much money was “wrongfully obtained” by the Tates.

New Poll Shows Chumph Approval Slip Slidin’ Away

Ain’t nobody happy with the Chumph right now but racists, fools, syncopates, and his dozen or so porch Negroes.

New poll shows Trump slipping further, even among Republicans

The latest Quinnipiac poll, released yesterday, includes all kinds of bad news for Donald Trump. His overall approval rating, for example, has fallen to just 37%, his lowest to date, and a depth of support with no modern precedent for a president just two months into his first term.

But just as interesting as the topline results are some of the specific details. From the pollster’s report:

President Trump is losing support among key elements of his base:

* Men disapprove 43 – 52 percent, compared to a 49 – 45 percent approval March 7;
* Republicans approve 81 – 14 percent, compared to 91 – 5 percent two weeks ago;
* White voters disapprove 44 – 50 percent, compared to a narrow 49 – 45 percent approval March 7.

To be sure, when a president enjoys 81% approval from voters in his own party, that may sound pretty good. It’s not. Note that Trump’s support from the GOP has fallen 10 points since the last Quinnipiac poll.

When a beleaguered president’s overall approval rating is just 37%, he’s even more dependent on die-hard loyalists. When that same president is shedding support from his own base, it’s evidence of a leader with a problem.

Making matters just a little worse, the American electorate doesn’t just disapprove of how Trump is governing, voters also disapprove of the president’s personal qualities. Among the discouraging results for the White House:

* 60 – 35 percent that he is not honest, compared to 55 – 39 not honest March 7;
* 55 – 40 percent that he does not have good leadership skills;
* 57 – 40 percent that he does not care about average Americans;
* 66 – 30 percent that he is not level-headed;
* 61 – 35 percent that he does not share their values.
The president’s overall favorability rating is 36% – which is just a little bit lower than his approval rating.

It’s against this backdrop that Trump is effectively telling Republican members of Congress, “Follow my lead and take health care benefits away from 24 million Americans. It’ll all work out great.” Good luck with that, GOP lawmakers.

Why The Investigation of Trump-Putin Money Is Going Nowhere

Three words…Federal Bureau of Investigation AKA the FBI.

Led by Trump Traitor James Comey. The guy who is under investigation himself for releasing false information on Clinton just before the election.

The fix is in.

FBI's warning of white supremacists infiltrating law enforcement nearly forgotten news 1x1.trans

The FBI is leading an investigation into Donald Trump’s connections with Russia

Trump is about to take over a government that has suspicions about whether he has been compromised by Russia

The FBI is leading a multi-agency investigation into possible links between Russian officials and President-elect Donald Trump.

The bureau will be joined by the CIA, National Security Agency, and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit, according to The New York Times on Thursday. They will reportedly be looking into intercepted communications and financial transactions involving Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman; Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser; and Roger Stone, a Republican political operative and Trump confidante. One official told the Times that intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications were provided to the White House.

The report did not say whether Trump himself or his presidential campaign have been directly implicated in these investigations or whether they involve the alleged Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. All that is known for sure is that they at least partially encompass Trump’s past business dealings with Russia, as well as Manafort’s previous work in both Russia and Ukraine (when the latter state was controlled by a Putin puppet). Sources also told the Times that some of Manafort’s contacts were under surveillance by the National Security Agency because of possible links to Russia’s Federal Security Service, the successor to the infamous KGB.

The legal standards for opening one of these investigations are not very high, and as a result prosecutions are uncommon. Because Trump will soon oversee the agencies conducting these efforts, he will have the power to hinder or even outright squelch them.

“We have absolutely no knowledge of any investigation or even a basis for such an investigation,” said Trump spokeswoman Hope Hicks. Manafort was even more defiant, emailing the Times on Thursday evening that claims he had interacted with the Russian government were a “Democrat Party dirty trick and completely false.”

There are numerous connections between Trump and Russia that are beyond dispute. It is a fact that Manafort worked for pro-Putin politicians in Ukraine (his denials notwithstanding), that Trump advisers like Rex Tillerson and retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn are also connected to Putin, that Trump took little interest in the Republican Party platform except to make sure that it wasn’t too harsh on Russia, that he openly encouraged Russia to hack Clinton’s emails, and that he had to turn to Russian financial interests tied to the Putin regime to fund his business ventures when major banks stopped lending him money.

That said, if the FBI has been aware of these investigations since before October, it will raise serious questions about why FBI Director James Comey didn’t disclose them to the public when he did choose to disclose a warrant into Hillary Clinton’s emails, which were ultimately about “nothing at all.”
