How big is the "criminal enterprise"? [View all]

And how long has the Republican Party been a part of it?

Although he may be a key part of it, it is much larger than Donald J Trump.

In my opinion, it is a worldwide operation, primarily run by oligarchs around the world.

The goal and the cornerstone of their existence is to make money and to destroy all those that stand in their way. Morality does not play a part in their business model.

In recent years, led by Vladimir Putin, their primary goal has been to tear down the democracies in the world.

International crime is their trademark. Money-laundering, extortion, prostitution, illegal banking, even murder. There are no limits to their power grab.

Their goal was, and still is, to tear down American democracy. They finally got their perfect tool with Donald Trump. He was more than willing to tear down our democracy and to prop up the international criminals, especially Putin.

So long as his greed was satisfied, he was willing to do anything they wanted. He was able to recruit the Republican Party to do all his dirty work. They are still helping him. They have become a major player in the international crime network, in my opinion.

The international crime network has grown into the biggest threat in the world against struggling democracies, even long-established democracies, such as our own.

I think the "criminal enterprise" is much larger than any of us ever imagined.
