Donald Trump Gets Some DEVASTATING News – Possible Criminal Investigation
The mainstream media has always been firmly against Trump, so it came as no surprise when Florida’s three largest newspapers called for a federal investigation of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s payoff to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.
According to Occupy Democrats, this payoff forced Trump to pay an IRS fine and re-ignited media coverage of the Trump University scam and cover up. The Miami Herald, the Tampa Bay Times and the Orlando Sentinel have all called for a criminal investigation to be launched into this. As of now, 827 Floridians have joined the New York Attorney General’s lawsuit against the GOP presidential nominee.
The Tampa Bay Times wrote a brutal editorial called “Feds should investigate Bondi-Trump connection”:
Federal prosecutors should investigate whether there is any connection between the decision by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office not to pursue fraud allegations against Trump University and a $25,000 campaign contribution he gave her. Since Florida prosecutors will not touch this mess, the Justice Department is the only option. The appearance of something more than a coincidence is too serious and the unresolved questions are too numerous to accept blanket denials by Bondi and Trump without more digging and an independent review.
The Miami Herald’s editorial board also wrote a tough editorial against Trump:
Unlike the faux scandal over the Clinton institution, there were actual victims here — people who paid good money to Trump University and feel they were duped. Why is Pam Bondi not investigating that?
That the gift was given and received is not in dispute. The transaction took place. After the IRS action, Mr. Trump reimbursed the foundation and paid the $2,500 fine personally, according to a spokesman for the Trump Organization. The rest remains murky, and, so far, riddled with contractions and misdirection. More serious are the questions about why the money was given and how it came about.
The Orlando Sentinel published an editorial in which they said Bondi deserved the bulk of the scrutiny:
The Florida Bar says it has no jurisdiction. The state attorney in Leon County has taken a pass. So have the governor’s office and the Legislature, both of which could demand hearings if they wanted.
Imagine you were robbed and the prosecutor gave the suspect a pass after taking $25,000 from him. There would be universal outrage — and rightfully so. This is not the behavior of an ethical prosecutor. If Floridians want action, they should speak up. But it may be up to the U.S. Justice Department.
When a prosecutor has been asked to investigate someone — and instead takes $25,000 in campaign cash from him — it’s the prosecutor who most needs probing. That’s why I began digging into this way back in 2013 — long before Trump was even a candidate for the White House.
This proves once again that the mainstream media is still firmly against Trump. SHARE if you stand by him!
