Breaking news so details still to come.  One (or rather two) down ... hopefully and counting.

 

Trump and his adult sons found liable for fraud

 

https://edition.cnn.com/2023/09/26/politics/trump-organization-business-fraud/index.html

 

 

 

 

you knew it wouldnt go well for him when you found out that he said he should be cleared because  that it didn’t matter what he put on his financial statements they have a disclaimer that says they shouldn’t be trusted. 





Common sense is not as common as you think.

The NY Times - Judge Finds Trump Inflated Property Values, a Victory for New York A.G.

 

breaking

 


The New York attorney general won a major victory in her civil case against Donald J. Trump on Tuesday when a New York judge determined that the former president fraudulently inflated the value of his assets to obtain favorable loans and insurance deals.

 

The decision by Justice Arthur F. Engoron precedes a trial that is scheduled to begin Monday, and will considerably smooth Attorney General Letitia James’s path forward as she seeks a penalty of about $250 million.

 

Justice Engoron’s decision narrows the issues that will be heard, effectively deciding that the trial was not necessary to find that Mr. Trump was liable and that the core of Ms. James’s case was valid.

 

It represents a major blow to Mr. Trump, whose lawyers had sought to persuade the judge to throw out many of the claims against the former president.

 

 

The decision will simplify the path for Attorney General Letitia James, who has accused former President Donald J. Trump of overvaluing his holdings by as much as $2.2 billion.

 

 

 

EDIT:  Reuters - Donald Trump is found liable for fraud in New York civil case   [free link]

 

Engoron ordered the cancellation of business certificates for the Trump Organization and other corporate defendants, and ordered the appointment of a receiver to manage their dissolution.

I seriously wonder how much longer Trump will be able to get any lawyer to represent him. Not because he doesn't pay, but because practically every single case he defends, he loses. What lawyer wants 'loser' stamped on his portfolio? Maybe a few alcoholic ambulance chasers, but certainly no law firm with a reputation to protect will want to keep accumulating these failures on its client record. Trump may end up having to resort to public defenders assigned by the courts.

Meanwhile, in an alternative Trump Universe ...

 

The Times of London - ‘I want to buy one’: Donald Trump admires gun with his face on

 

25 September 2023

 


Donald Trump admired a pistol with his face printed on the grip as he went gun shopping during a campaign stop in South Carolina on Monday.

 

Before a rally in the battleground state, Trump toured a local gun store where he was presented with the special edition Glock emblazoned with his face and “Trump 45” printed on the barrel.

 

I’m going to buy one. I want to buy one,” the former president said eagerly as he posed for photos with the weapon in an exchange posted on social media by his campaign team.  [ link ]

 

Ever sensitive to his popularity, Trump asked staff at the Palmetto State Armoury if the 9mm “Trump Edition” pistol sold well.

 

When assured that the $830 weapon was one of the store’s bestsellers, he said, with satisfaction: “They like me.

https://news.yahoo.com/indicted-trump-asks-buy-glock-210045268.html

 

In a PR stunt gone terribly wrong, former President Donald Trump went gun shopping on Monday with Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and asked to buy a Glock pistol on camera—which would have brazenly violated the very same law that recently landed Hunter Biden criminal charges. Federal law prohibits anyone under indictment from attempting to buy a firearm.

Learned a new word: obstreperous as noisy and difficult to control.

I think that's like calling the temperature absolute zero as unpleasantly cold.

Maybe they just want to shoot him.

Trump: "could I buy this on store credit, or with a paper check?

I also have a horse, a real champion, hung like me, best you ever saw, that I could trade.

Or better. You could hang up a sign that says 'Trump's guns provided by' your store, and give me a bunch for free. Fantastic publicity."

Store owner, looking nervous: "sorry cash only. no credit cards, no checks, no refunds. you break it, you bought it."

One thing wrong with that firearm. Dumbo's face should be in front of the muzzle.

An hour long discussion between two New York lawyers, just audio

Two Attorneys Rank the Severity of Trump’s Indictments

New York Times Podcasts

"With four ongoing criminal investigations, Donald Trump is the most indicted president in U.S. history. After years of defying unwritten norms, he will now be subject to a criminal justice system defined by norms and precedents. What does due process look like for a former president?

Ken White is a former federal prosecutor, a practicing criminal defense lawyer and a co-host of the podcast “Serious Trouble. He writes the popular newsletter "The Popehat Report", extensively covering the ins and outs of criminal trials. Among the many commentators on Trump’s unprecedented legal troubles, White stands out for his 'lawsplainers,' which analyze the gap between what the law says and what it actually does."

In defence of the Austrian manufacturer Glock, it must be said that this is a model that has been "refined" by the American company GRABAGUN aftermarket.

The Guardian: ‘I like him even better now’: Trump’s true believers keep the faith
...
On a grey, rainy day, Martin was near the head of a long and winding queue outside a cavernous conference centre overlooking the Mississippi River. Like so many fans in so many towns and cities over nearly a decade, an overwhelmingly white crowd had come to cheer on Trump, elected US president in 2016, beaten by Joe Biden in 2020 and clear frontrunner for the Republican nomination in 2024.

What is striking about the traveling circus is not what has changed over that time but what has stayed the same. Hawkers still move up and down the line selling Trump calendars, keychains and other regalia with captions such as “Gun rights matter”, “Fight for Trump”, “Jesus is my savior, Trump is my president”, “No more bullshit”, “Trumpinator: I’ll be back” and “F__k Biden and f__ you for voting for him”.

Trump, 77, still puts on a show unlike anyone else in politics. Video clips of allies such as the broadcaster Tucker Carlson and Hungarian autocrat Viktor Orbán receive cheers

“F__k Biden and f__ you for voting for him”.



So, being free speech supporters they are OK with other saying "F__ck Trump and f__uck you for voting for him". 

Right?

Oh, and remember their "F__k your feelings" t-shirts.
