A court-ordered financial auditor has caught Donald Trump quietly moving $40 million from the Trump Organization into a personal bank account—seemingly so the former president could pay his whopping $29 million tax bill.

Trump isn’t supposed to be moving any money around without alerting Barbara S. Jones, a former federal judge in New York tasked with babysitting the Trump Organization for its relentlessly shady business practices. But on Wednesday, she notified a New York state court about some major bank transfers that were never brought to her attention by the Trumps.

    Your cynicism is totally understandable, but all the lawyers I’ve listened to on this one say he’s fucked. It’s just that Justice moves too slowly for the average person, so it feels like nothing is being done about his lawlessness.

      Dude he’s about to be elected perpetual supreme grand emperor so he can just cancel democracy.

      Cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s but penalise him already.

        I feel you. Justice moves slowly, especially for people who have immense privilege. I want him behind bars or hidden away somewhere, never to be seen again. We’re too close to fascism to be giving people like him the benefit of the doubt.
