When Will Garland Appoint A Special Counsel To Investigate Trump's Money Laundering

There was a thread posted here about this 1 hour ago and it got 3 replies. Trump is laundering money through Truth Social, through Axos bank right out in the open.

It's fucking time for Garland to appoint a pro-Biden special counsel to investigate Trump's money laundering. Garland saw fit to appoint pro-Trump special counsels to investigate both Hunter and Joe Biden. Hunter is set to go to trial for tax fraud that is rarely prosecuted, there is a good chance he will be convicted.

I posted in the other thread that Putin could write a billion dollar check to Trump and he could cash it at Axos bank and no one would give a rat's ass.

Let's post some shit about what Trump said at his rally yesterday, that is more interesting and will get more replies.

Maybe Nicolle will cover this today, she would be the only one on cable news.

Here, a repost; maybe it will get 3 more hits?

The shit is going to hit the fan regarding climate change and soon.
The billionaires want to get ahead of the collapse and snatch up all resources and
financial assets.

And Garland obviously has his marching orders from the oligarchs.
He is certainly not working on the side of justice.

he said that if Trump becomes dictator his #1 goal will to be the richest man in the world. Cohen said that Trump will have no qualms to take all of the money from oligarchs who helped him out. Cohen said that Trump could take all of Elon Musk's money, Bezo's money.

Those oligarchs will not be protected under a Trump dictatorship. All it will take is a son or daughter of an oligarch posting something on social media that Trump doesn't like and he will drain them dry.

Garland appointed a special counsel who was a Trump crony to investigate a fraudulent, fake, made up Russian propaganda story that was supposed to involve Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Ukraine, Burisma, China, fake influence peddling. Garland appointed a special counsel to investigate what was Russian propaganda. Sitting behind my computer in central Pa. I knew from watching reliable news sources that the Burisma scandal was Russian propaganda, apparently Garland didn't know that. So what was the result? Garland had to make Weiss a special counsel so that he could indict Hunter for tax evasion even though he repaid the taxes, a crime that is rarely prosecuted but Hunter Biden is about to be convicted of it because Garland has to justify why he appointed Weiss in the first place.

If you are fine with how Garland handled Burisma then so be it, I am not fine with it. Comer is still using that investigation to spread anti-Biden propaganda.

The SC 6 will just give their master a delay until after the election or do what they are itching to do, & give him complete immunity.

I blame them more than anyone else for why Trump hasn't even been put on trial in a criminal court yet!

Look at all the publicity that Burisma, Russian propaganda got because Garland pushed the investigation, a bogus investigation.

I am only asking Garland to look into real criminal activity on the part of Trump. My suggestion to Garland, to make things even, would be to make Peter Strzok or Lisa Page the special counsel.

He will do whatever it takes to maintain the status quo. Garland is just cruising around until it's time to step down. Tick Tock

for this or that. Trump hasn't paid a nickel out of his own pocket for all of his legal fees. Trump won't pay E. Jean Carroll out of his own pocket, Trump won't pay the state of New York out of his own pocket because no one will investigate where he is getting the money.

That used car salesman in San Diego, car re-possessor, is just the middle man.

Trump gets away with it because everyone fears him.

How many people know that about a year ago Trump moved a lot of his money to that used car salesman's bank?

But they aren’t likely investigating Trump specifically, but Axos bank, as it would be the bank, not Trump, who would be laundering money.

So no Special Prosecutor would be justified to investigate the bank.

Remember, the “Special” in special prosecutor does not mean faster, more aggressive or more powerful.

Also remember that DOJ does not announce or comment on ongoing investigations.

Now, if in the course of their investigation of Axos bank, evidence was uncovered that Trump engaged in fraud to obtain the loans (as he did in the NY case), then I would expect Garland to appoint a SC.
