Donald Trump may be brought to court after a Telegraph investigation found the Republican presidential nominee signed off a deal designed to deprive the US Treasury of tens of millions of dollars in tax.
Lawyers prosecuting some of Mr Trump’s closest business associates in a civil suit, which includes these allegations, believe there may now be cause to include Mr Trump as a defendant. Frederick Oberlander, the lawyer executing the legal action, said the Telegraph’s disclosures included “new” and “relevant” information which may show that Mr Trump shares culpability.
The lawsuit, which was recently unsealed by a judge, claims that executives at Bayrock, the property development firm behind the Trump Soho hotel in New York, sought to evade tens of millions of dollars in taxes in connection with that and other schemes.
One of the main allegations centres on a deal between Bayrock, which operated out of Trump Tower, and FL Group, an Icelandic company. The court case, which will be heard in the New York supreme court, alleges that Bayrock sold a $50 million slice of the company, but disguised the sale as a loan to escape paying tax liabilities, estimated in the complaint to amount to $20 million.
A Telegraph investigation earlier this year revealed that Mr Trump gave his approval to the deal despite it – according to independent experts – containing several ‘red flags’ suggesting the deal might be improper. Moreover, this newspaper revealed it was written into the deal agreement that Mr Trump’s consent was required in order for it to go ahead.
Trump cares so much about America that he’s happy to defraud it. That’s your candidate, GOP.
It feels like this most of the time-
I just read someone remark that they were looking forward to reading a book review that he described as ‘important.’
I like it when scholars say a book review is important before they’ve even read it or know what’s in it. #NoNeedToRead
In every family there’s one person who is the ‘spiritual driver’. When that person dies, the rest of the family lets their own devotion fall to the wayside. You see the truth every Sunday. #Randomness
The American Nazi Party thinks a Trump Presidency would be a great thing for white ‘nationalists’…
The chairman of the American Nazi Party, Rocky Suhayda, declared on his radio program last month that a Donald Trump victory would present a great opportunity for white nationalists to build pro-white coalitions.
“I’m gonna project, that I believe that Trump is going to win the election this November, for various reasons which I don’t want to go into again,” Suhayda said on his radio program’s July broadcast. “I think it’s gonna surprise the enemy, because, I think that they feel that the white working class, especially the male portion of the working class, and with him his female counterparts have basically thrown in the towel. Given up hope of any politician again standing up for their interests.”
I suppose that many of Trump’s supporters may find a hearty welcome with the American Nazis if the GOP doesn’t continue to enjoy their attention.
