The Trumps were fined $10 million dollars for money laundering crimes and the administration is panicking that this information is getting out!
If Trump is already under investigation for corruption, how is a money laundering offense going to reflect on his overall record?
According to BR, the Trump Family’s Taj Mahal Casino was fined $10 million dollars by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network for breaking the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA). Not once or twice but for “repeated and willful violations.”
As in more than once! How many warnings does one need for that kind of thing?
The Treasury Department said that the Taj Mahal Casino failed to keep up program requirements in the way of reporting obligations, record keeping and good practice. The instances of money laundering are nothing new either. Violations date back to 2003 with another fine for a related crime in 1998.
FinCen Director Jennifer Shasky Calvery went on record saying:
“Trump Taj Mahal received many warnings about its deficiencies. Trump Taj Mahal has a duty to help protect our financial system. Poor compliance practices left the casino and our financial system unacceptably exposed.”
So what gives? How was Trump’s company fined for money laundering and yet Trump himself wasn’t charged with a crime? Just because he’s the president now he has immunity?
This isn’t an episode of The Apprentice! If you do the crime, do the time…or at the very least don’t pretend as if such a shady man is qualified to be Commander-in-Chief.
Trump was definitely in charge during all those years when the crimes were happening. And judging from his first four months in office, he hasn’t changed one bit. He’s still finding ways to profit from the presidency and pass it to his businesses even though that should be illegal too.
His family’s corruption has been openly exposed and we’re waiting for justice to be served!
