Report: New York Prosecutors Investigating Trump For Fraud Over Tax Write-Offs

According to the New York Times, prosecutors from both the Manhattan District Attorney’s office and the New York Attorney General’s office are investigating possible tax fraud by President Donald Trump.

Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance and New York AG Letitia James reportedly have investigators probing millions of dollars in tax write-offs that President Trump allegedly used tied to consulting fees paid to Ivanka Trump, his daughter.

Trump Org: ‘Just The Latest Fishing Expedition’

The Trump Organization has been subpoenaed by city and state prosecutors for the tax records related to the fees.

The Times notes that Ivanka Trump is not a focus of the investigations.

According to the Times. “Mr. Trump reduced his taxable income by deducting about $26 million in fees to unidentified consultants as a business expense on numerous projects between 2010 and 2018.”

The Times also reported that Ms. Trump received some of those fees. 

“On a 2017 disclosure she filed when joining the White House as a presidential adviser, she reported receiving payments from a consulting company she co-owned, totaling $747,622, that exactly matched consulting fees claimed as tax deductions by the Trump Organization for hotel projects in Hawaii and Vancouver, British Columbia,” reported the Times.

Alan Garten, the Trump Organization’s general counsel, told the Times, “This is just the latest fishing expedition in an ongoing attempt to harass the company.”

“Everything was done in strict compliance with applicable law and under the advice of counsel and tax experts,” Garten added.

How many ways are they going to find to come after this president?

The move comes as multiple Democrat Congressmen have called to “prosecute” Trump for unspecified crimes.

Ivanka Trump: ‘This Is Harassment Pure And Simple’

The Democrats’ impeachment debacle was apparently just the tip of the iceberg, as even in the midst of a contentious election, state authorities are trying to drum up crimes related to President Trump’s daughter.

This is a pattern – the treatment of President Trump and his family since before he even stepped into the Oval Office.

Ivanka Trump responded to the reports late Thursday.

“This is harassment pure and simple,” Ms. Trump tweeted. “This ‘inquiry’ by NYC democrats is 100% motivated by politics, publicity and rage.”

She continued, “They know very well that there’s nothing here and that there was no tax benefit whatsoever.”

“These politicians are simply ruthless,” she finished.

AOC Demands People Stop Asking ‘If’ White Supremacy Exists In Policing – Says They Need To Talk About How Bad It Is Instead

The radically liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y) called on lawmakers to stop “asking if white supremacy in policing exists” and to instead accept that it does. She also wants them to focus on determining just how big of a problem white supremacy in policing is going forward.

Ocasio-Cortez Speaks Out On Policing

Ocasio-Cortez made these comments during a House Oversight and Reform hearing that was meant to focus on what the left described as the “pervasive” problem of white supremacists infiltrating the police departments in America. Law enforcement officers, legal experts, and even one former neo-Nazi  testified about their personal experiences with racist police officers.

Later in the hearing, Ocasio-Cortez was given the chance to speak, and she used her time to suggest that “far too much of the discussion around the issue of white supremacist infiltration of policing focuses on whether this problem exists.”

“We have known for generations that it’s not a question about whether this problem is an issue, it’s a matter of how we have allowed it to sustain for so long,” she said. “Congress, as well, has been complicit, and our silence has allowed for more violence and continued generational trauma in our communities.”

“We have to stop asking if white supremacy in policing exists and I think we need to start figuring out how we can better determine the scale of this problem,” she added.

Police Officers Don’t Deserve These Attacks

This just goes to show that the level of hatred that Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow Democrats have for police has become so great that they see it as a foregone conclusion that police departments are “racist.”

It’s rhetoric like this from lawmakers like Ocasio-Cortez as well as from members of the media that have endangered the lives of American police officers all over the country like never before.

It should be noted that the FBI was asked to testify in the hearing, but refused. Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said “they have nothing to say because they have no evidence that this is a widespread problem demanding the FBI’s attention.”

We would have to agree with the FBI on this one.

Tucker Exposes Democrats’ Plan To Stop Trump’s SCOTUS Pick – ‘Burn The Entire F***ing Thing Down’

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson called out the media and Democrats threatening to ‘burn the entire thing down’ as a means to stop President Trump’s Supreme Court nomination.

While most were calling to honor and revere Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the occasion of her passing, Carlson notes that the left was not.

“Prominent progressives immediately descended into hysteria and rage – unbridled rage,” he said during Monday’s monologue.

Carlson insists the commentary coming from the left shows they truly believe that RBG’s death has “imperiled this country’s freedoms.”

That she had “single-handedly kept America from descending into fascism and tyranny.”

They believe this in their hearts. And that makes them quite dangerous.

To Stop Trump, Democrats Want to ‘Burn the Whole Thing Down’

After explaining the left’s mindset, Tucker proceeded to point out their obvious demands. Demands you can see in their very own words and actions.

“Democrats have an alternative argument at the ready and it’s one they’ve been honing all year,” he explained.

“It goes like this,” revealed Carlson. “‘Do what we want or we will hurt you.'”

It didn’t start with the fight to stop President Trump’s SCOTUS pick.

In fact, for months now in Democrat-led cities, violence has been raging supposedly in the name of racial justice.

‘Defund the police or we will hurt you.’

WATCH Tucker’s monologue here:

Does anybody remember that? Does anyone remember how Democrats during that time refused to denounce the violence?

Now America is on the verge of seeing even more violence over a Supreme Court nomination. A nomination the Constitution directs President Trump to make.

But, just as Carlson said, even this message of violence involving the Court has been looming all year.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY), in March, threatened Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh with violence.

“I want to tell you Gorsuch, I want to tell you Kavanaugh, you have released the whirlwind and you will pay the price,” Schumer railed, pointing a stern finger.

“You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Message sent: Democrats are okay with violence if Supreme Court matters don’t go their way.

‘Give us what we want or we will hurt you.’

More Signs Pointing to Democrat Violence

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Monday warned that Democrats will try “every conceivable dirty trick” to prevent Trump’s nominee from going forward.

If you don’t believe McConnell and Carlson, then you need only listen to the unhinged rhetoric coming from our friends in the media and the Democrat party.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) have indicated they would use impeachment – a tactic reserved for high crimes and misdemeanors – to stop the SCOTUS pick.

Schumer, the same guy who has threatened justices with violence, nodded along in agreement.

President Trump dared them to do it.

Then you have the liberal lunatics pervading the media and entertainment industries.

Reza Aslan, a former personality at CNN who is known for voicing his desire to punch a teenager, called on rioters to “burn the entire f***ing thing down.”

“That effing thing being our country,” Carlson responded. “That we built.”

Aslan also threatened civil war essentially, responding to McConnell’s announcement that Trump’s nominee will receive a vote with, “over our dead bodies.”

If you thought he was kidding, Aslan added, “literally.”

Beau Willimon, the man behind the American version of ‘House of Cards,’ threatened to shut the country down.

Emmett MacFarlane, a professor at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada, reiterated threats to burn America down.

Don’t think words will lead to actions? Consider the fact that liberal anarchists spent the last few months setting fires to and looting businesses in several cities across America.

Now consider that they’ve already begun harassing Republican Senators in their homes.

Not only have Schumer and the media authorized their followers to engage in violence, but AOC is also demanding they become ‘radicalized’ over the President’s SCOTUS pick.

“Let this moment radicalize you.”

Remember those words. Play them in your head while watching footage of the devastation in Democrat cities over the last few months.

And realize they are coming again.

“The Democrat party has encouraged this extremism over and over and over again,” Carlson said.

Is there any reason to think it will be different this time around?

Graham: ‘We’ve Got The Votes To Confirm Justice Ginsburg’s Replacement Before The Election’ 

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said Monday night that Senate Republicans have “the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election.”

The Republican also said that the Senate Judiciary Committee will report the nomination so there can be a vote on Trump’s nominee on the Senate floor before the election.

He also noted that Republicans will confirm Ginsburg’s replacement before November 3rd.

Graham: ‘We’ve Got The Votes’

Graham made his comments on Monday’s “Hannity” on Fox News, where he also promised all the Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee would vote for the nominee to replace Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

“We’ve got the votes to confirm Justice Ginsburg’s replacement before the election,” Graham told Sean Hannity.

“We’re going to move forward in the committee. We’re going to report the nomination out of the committee to the floor of the United States Senate so we can vote before the election.”

“That’s the constitutional process,” Graham noted.

Graham Vows He And Republicans Won’t Be Intimidated By The Left

The senator continued, “After Kavanaugh, everything changed with me. They’re not going to intimidate me, Mitch McConnell, or anybody else.”

“The nominee is going to be supported by every Republican in the Judiciary Committee, and we’ve got the votes to confirm the judge — the justice on the floor of the Senate before the election,” Graham insisted.

“And that’s what’s coming,” he vowed.

The night before Graham made his comments to Hannity, protesters gathered outside the senator’s Washington, DC residence to demand he not confirm a replacement for Ginsburg.

Expect The Left’s Shrill Reaction To Get Worse

Given the tone and even violent aggressiveness of today’s left, this was not surprising.

And as President Trump and Republicans continue to go through the process of what the Constitution demands when a Supreme Court seat becomes vacant, expect the left’s reaction to become increasingly worse.

We are already seeing it from Democrat leaders.

They have threatened to pack the courts.

They have threatened to impeach the president for merely doing his Constitutionally-prescribed job.

Left-wing liberals like CNN commentator Resa Azlan have threatened to burn down the country.

It will get worse from here.
