This is SO crazy and scary!!!
A new report that appeared Sunday in Politico details alleged dealings between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and the MAFIA!!!
The report, penned by well-respected journalist David Clay Johnston, who has been investigating Trump’s mob ties for years, contains bombshell after bombshell of news about the GOP presidential hopeful dealing with shady underworld characters on a variety of New York real estate and construction deals!
According to Johnston, The Donald even went so far as to do business dealings on a concrete project with a known mafia leader named Anthony ‘Fat Tony’ Salerno.
A mobster named ‘Fat Tony’ selling The Donald concrete for a real estate deal?! That’s the most ridiculously stereotypical mafia thing ever!!
It gets worse from there, though. Johnston doesn’t pull any punches when he explains just how dirty Donald’s business dealings have become (below):
“I’ve encountered multiple threads linking Trump to organized crime. Some of Trump’s unsavory connections have been followed by investigators and substantiated in court; some haven’t. And some of those links have continued until recent years, though when confronted with evidence of such associations, Trump has often claimed a faulty memory.”
Johnston uncovered quite a bit in his years of work, including links to mob members where deals were struck in order for The Donald to get a better shake with union workers on construction projects and accusations that he underpaid union workers thanks to super sketchy backroom deals where the real estate mogul agreed to hire illegal immigrants!!
There are also pieces showing Trump’s direct links to a man named John Cody — a well-known Gambino Crime Family associate — with The Donald granting him preferential treatment in a real estate deal in exchange for investments.
Johnston goes on, refusing to stand back and calling out Trump for exactly what he is — the shadiest, most corrupt presidential candidate in history:
“No other candidate for the White House this year has anything close to Trump’s record of repeated social and business dealings with mobsters, swindlers and other crooks. Professor Douglas Brinkley, a presidential historian, said the closest historical example would be President Warren G. Harding and Teapot Dome, a bribery and bid-rigging scandal for which the interior secretary went to prison. But even that has a key difference: Harding’s associates were corrupt but otherwise legitimate businessmen, not mobsters and drug dealers.”
Is it gonna hurt The Donald? Are his voters blind followers of the man, or do, ya know, facts actually matter?!
Guess we’ll find out all summer and then in November…
But seriously… wow!!! Read the full report HERE!
