Trump In New York Until Today, In Case Any NY Authorities Are Feeling Arrest-y
If New York investigators happen to have enough to get a warrant and go ahead and get Donald Trump in custody, this week might be a good time. Why? Because the moron has emerged from his gilded cave in Florida and traveled to New York, as the New York Daily News reports, to "get up to speed" on what's going on with his company. He wants to "get under the hood," the Daily News says.
Of course, what's going on is that his company and he personally are under many criminal investigations in New York, for crimes! So if the district attorney wanted to give Trump a personal guided tour of "what's going on under the hood," by arresting him, that would be OK.
We are just still waiting for his perp walk, that's all.
"He's quite curious about his businesses and his employees, his organization, and is eager to look under the hood," the source told the Daily News. "He's not entirely sure of the role he will play, but he misses it, for sure."
He leaves today, New York authorities! Get him on the the BQE on the way to La Guardia if you have to!
The Daily News reports that DA Cy Vance's people are meeting with Michael Cohen for a seventh time on Wednesday, and we talked last week about how that investigation seems to now be barking up longtime Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg's tree as well, seemingly to get him to flip on Big Daddy.
Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that the investigation from Cy Vance's office is broadening to look at a loan Trump got for his big tower in Chicago:
The Manhattan district attorney's office subpoenaed documents from an investment company that loaned the Trump Organization millions of dollars for its Chicago skyscraper in a sign that the investigation into the former president's finances continues to expand, according to people familiar with the investigation.
Prosecutors issued the grand jury subpoena to Fortress Investment Management late last year, the people said, as part of their wide-ranging investigation into former President Donald Trump and his company.
It seems like it keeps coming back to that same question Michael Cohen brought up so long ago, of whether Trump and his company may have committed crimes in telling certain people his assets and properties are worth one bajillion megagabillion dollarbucks, to make him look VERY RICH when he's trying to get loans and such, and then telling other people he is a mere pauper, like when it comes to paying property taxes.
More from CNN:
Their interest in Fortress relates to a $130 million loan the company made to the Trump Organization for the construction of a luxury hotel and condo tower in Chicago.
By 2012, Fortress subsequently forgave more $100 million of the loan, which, including interest and fees, was worth about $150 million, according to court filings. The forgiveness was done to secure a partial re-payment of about $45 million at a time when the real estate market was suffering from the financial crisis.
CNN says Cy Vance is just curious whether Trump and his company marked the forgiven part of the loan down as "income," like they are supposed to do, or if they did something screwy and crime-y with it.
Our point is, the man is in New York, unless he's already gotten on his airplane to run back to Mar-a-Lago and resume his sad, Twitter-less existence.
Again, in case anybody needs to arrest him before he flees to Russia and begs for asylum.
We are just saying.
