Trump isn’t gonna get impeached…..
We know that….
Some of us just hope that the sheer weight of the coming Mueller throwdown will force Trump to quit….
Daily Kos has a better idea….
Go after Donald Trump money ……
Civilly freeze his businesses…..
Investigating possible illicit ties to Russia that could affect Trump’s Presidency are not the only times you can follow the money. Mueller’s probe into Trump’s Russia connections has given him almost unprecedented access to Trump’s financial records. Good Lord, a bank in Cyprus even turned records over to the FBI in it’s investigation into Paul Manafort. Just because a financial crime may not directly involve the Russia investigation doesn’t mean that a crime wasn’t committed. And as we have already seen with Michael Cohen, Mueller is not shy about taking incriminating evidence he finds that he can’t use, and turning it over to prosecutorial agencies that can use it.
Rumors and speculation have swirled around the Trump organization for years. Possible bank fraud. Possible money laundering of Russian rubles through his overpriced schlock condos in New York, and his luxury golf properties. Suspicious circumstances around a property he bought in Florida, and sold soon afterwards for double what he paid for it, to a Russian oligarch no less. Allegations of Russian money laundering through an exclusive Trump branded property in Panama City, to the point that the actual owner of the property used armed security guards to try to keep Trump employees from accessing the property. And don’t forget his aborted Trump Tower in Baku, Azerbaijan, where you can’t even plow a driveway without the proper payoff to the ruling oligarch family. If ever there was a mechanism in place to uncover and connect the dots on this kind of complicated financial tomfoolery, it’s the Mueller investigation. And all of it can be routed to the proper jurisdictions for criminal prosecution.
But. But. But. If Trump even gets a whiff of an upcoming prosecution for unrelated financial crimes, he’ll just preemptively pardon himself, and his family. OK, fine. Simple solution? Don’t prosecute Trump, prosecute his COMPANY! The constitution permits a President to pardon an individual for his crimes, nothing authorizes him to pardon a company or corporation. If any of these crimes were committed, they weren’t committed via Trump’s personal bank and checking accounts, they were funneled through his company books. Follow. The. Money. And then take it, all of it. The Enron trial alone proved how effectively the government can dismantle a criminally liable company when they choose to…..
