Speaking with host Kendis Gibson, former Homeland Security chief of staff Miles Taylor expressed disgust with the former president. With Gibson pointing out, "One person in the New York Times reporting was a cancer patient in hospice who couldn't afford utilities or rent," Taylor lashed out at Trump. "My mother is a hospice nurse, you see how difficult life is for people at end of life and to raid someone of their money at the end of their life has to add onto that hardship for the whole family," he explained. "So, on the one hand, Trump doesn't want to shake their hands but he wants to raid their pocketbooks," he continued.

"There is public reporting how Trump and his businesses might have stretched the tax law, but let's be frank, the tax law is written very liberally for a lot of these businesses.

" "They will have to prove that Donald Trump or anybody else in the Trump Organization knowingly and intentionally inflated or deflated the value of their assets.

"The Manhattan District Attorney's Office has subpoenaed a New York City property tax agency as part of a criminal investigation into Donald Trump's company, the agency confirmed on Friday, suggesting prosecutors are examining the former president's efforts to reduce his commercial real-estate taxes for possible evidence of fraud," Reuters reported. "The subpoena is the latest indication that Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance Jr. is looking at the values Trump assigned to several commercial properties in tax filings and loan documents," Reuters reported. "Along with information already subpoenaed from creditors, the tax agency documents would help investigators determine whether Trump's business inflated the value of his properties to secure favorable terms on loans while deflating those values to lower tax bills for those same properties.

Trump’s Pardon Shakedown

Thanks to loyalist Jason Miller's legal woes - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism. Two weeks after former President Donald Trump left office, his new leadership PAC is already dodging its first subpoena, Salon has learned.

thanks to loyalist Jason Miller's legal woes - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism

The PAC, Save America, refused to respond to an attorney's questions about whether former Trump campaign strategist Jason Miller, who now identifies himself as a senior adviser to Trump while claiming to be unemployed, is on its payroll. Instead, the PAC passed the matter along to Miller's personal attorney, who says he accepted the responsibility without knowing why. Unpaid legal work for a political committee is considered an in-kind donation, and must be reported to the Federal Election Commission.

The subpoena came up last week in an email sent by a lawyer representing AJ Delgado, a former official in Trump's 2016 campaign and the mother of Miller's child, who has battled Miller in family court for child support over the past two years. That response appears to elide or evade the core issue. Campaign finance experts say the scheme is illegal. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's multi-million-dollar profits made while working for the government - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism. Despite the pandemic, which took a toll on many businesses across the United States, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner reportedly made substantial profits during their time working for the U.S. government under former President Donald Trump's administration.

According to a report published by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, the affluent couple's final financial disclosure reports, which cover the duration of 2020 up to Jan. 20, 2021, signal monetary profits of "$23,791,645 and $120,676,949 in combined outside income. " The analysis also highlights a number of questionable aspects of Trump's disclosure reports that centers on "fixed guaranteed payments she arranged to receive from a few entities to prevent a situation in which she would have a stake in their performance while she worked in the White House.

Donald Trump's campaign owes almost half its debt to its own company: new filings - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism. The Trump campaign can continue to raise money after claiming more than $2.7 million in debt in its last federal finance report of the year, with nearly half that deficit owed to a shell company that was created and run by top campaign officials.

The filing, submitted Sunday to the Federal Election Commission, also said that the campaign refunded more than $11 million in illegal donations to nearly 4,300 contributors after the November election, even though, as a senior campaign official told Salon, the Republican National Committee automatically redirected excessive repeat donations from the Trump campaign to the RNC. In broad terms, perhaps the most notable information from the latest report is the steep drop in revenue. But the new filing shows that in the weeks between Nov. 24 and Dec. 31, the campaign saw its cash stockpile drop, closing the year with $10.7 million on hand — less than one percent of the more than $1 billion raised over the course of Trump's four years in office. Trump campaign used secretive shell company led by Jared Kushner to illegally hide spending: complaint - Raw Story - Celebrating 16 Years of Independent Journalism.

On Thursday, Business Insider reported that the watchdog group Campaign Legal Center is alleging former President Donald Trump's family and campaign associates used a shell company to illegally conceal how they were spending election money. The new allegations against the Trump family are detailed in a supplement to an existing federal complaint. "The supplement, filed Thursday morning with the Federal Election Commission, is in part based on Insider's reporting in December about American Made Media Consultants, a secretive shell company that operated inside Trump's 2020 campaign committee," said the report. "American Made Media Consultants, the shell company, along with a political firm owned by former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, 'served as conduits that hid the ultimate recipients of nearly half of the campaign's overall spending,' the updated complaint states.

Ms. Donald Trump PAC has pocketed most of the cash he bilked from his supporters to fund election lawsuits: report. President Donald Trump has raised about $170 million from his aggressive fundraising campaign ostensibly aimed at fueling his baseless election challenges, but the majority of the money is actually going to the new political action committee he set up after the election, according to The New York Times.

Trump has bombarded supporters with appeals for cash as he wages a fruitless legal campaign to challenge the results of an election he lost by more than 6 million votes. But the president’s attorneys have failed to back up his allegations of fraud and irregularities with any actual evidence. Here’s the real reason Donald Trump won’t concede. Joe Biden has decisively won the presidency. There is no way for Trump to overturn the results of the election, and his campaign’s post-election lawsuits have gotten dismissed left and right.
