A 21st Century Tale: The Con Man and the IRS

While Trump has been marshaling his minions at Mar-a-Lago (and nursing his enormous ego) in an attempt to be a king-maker for the Republican Party, the wheels of justice have been turning.

A judge has ruled against him. His lawyers have to turn over all the records and paperwork they've been trying to hide about one of his properties.

They have until Feb. 3rd to hand over the records and communications from Trump's real estate company, under penalty of law.

New York Attorney General Letitia James has issued six subpoenas since August. All were stonewalled by Trump lawyers.

The siege ended when a New York state Supreme Court Justice, Arthur Engoron, ruled that Trump's claims of attorney-client privilege were hogwash, and it was time to move on.

The focus of James' investigation is an appraisal of property on 212 acres outside New York City. The probe is looking at a suspicious $21 million dollar tax deduction the Trump company claimed in 2015.

But that's not all that's being investigated regarding the Trump Organization.

Investigators have been going over his banking records for more than a year. Records that may reveal big time fraud and money laundering.

I like to remind people how the infamous gangster Al Capone - who murdered countless people - went to prison for cheating on his taxes. 

So Don the Con's political future is more clouded than many believe at this time. The tax man cometh and when he does... 

One thing is for sure, it's going to be difficult to run for POTUS again in 2024 when Trump's an inmate in a federal prison.

To keep himself busy behind bars, the disgraced ex-president could start a 3rd Party. I suggest calling it the BAD LOSER COALITION.
