The costs of being associated with a fraudster can be devastating

To the Editor:

Citizen Trump just lost another NYC trial, adding another $365M to the existing $87M he was found guilty of sexually assaulting EJ Carroll.
It costs a lot of money to be associated with a con-artist fraudster . Just ask these convicted criminals:
1. Steve Bannon: Trump’s political Svengali was charged with fraud and fundraising scam.
2. Tom Barrack: Guilty on seven counts of and provide intelligence to the UAE
3. Elliott Broidy: Broidy, a top fundraiser conducted a secret lobbying campaign in exchange for millions of dollars into massive fraud at a Malaysian investments
4. Michael Cohen: The one-time fixer for Trump, Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison for a series of crimes, most notably secret hush-money payments
5. Michael Flynn: had lied to the FBI about his contact with Russia and had also done work for Turkey as an unauthorized lobbyist.
6. Rick Gates: guilty to aiding and abetting Paul Manafort in concealing $75 million in foreign bank accounts.
7. Paul Manafort: count of conspiracy against the US and one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice due to attempts to tamper with witnesses
8. George Nader: pleaded guilty to two counts of sex crimes involving minors.
9. George Papadopoulos: Pleaded guilty for lying to investigators about his contacts with individuals tied to Russia.
10. Roger Stone: was convicted in November 2019 for lying to Congress and threatening Federal judges.
11. Rudy : $143M , bankrupt, Facing $4B in from Dominion, Smartmatic
12. Mike Lindel “Pillow Man,” bankrupt . Facing $4B in from Dominion, Smartmatic
This is just a short list. Over 1,000+ J6 rioters are facing charges,
POTUS Joe Biden will easily be re-elected in 2024 as the lies of 2020 continue to be uncovered, and the convicted list of Trump’s inner circle grows. Trump is bound for conviction on 91 felonies.
