A court-ordered financial auditor has caught Donald Trump quietly moving $40 million from the Trump Organization into a personal bank account—seemingly so the former president could pay his whopping $29 million tax bill.

Trump isn’t supposed to be moving any money around without alerting Barbara S. Jones, a former federal judge in New York tasked with babysitting the Trump Organization for its relentlessly shady business practices. But on Wednesday, she notified a New York state court about some major bank transfers that were never brought to her attention by the Trumps.

    Man I’m allowed to downvote shit I don’t want to see at the top of every post. Like that’s why they put that functionality on this site, I am allowed to use it to vote on what’s the most relevant comment. You’re not the ruler of Lemmy.

    It was a redundant, pointless, low effort comment that repeated the one at the top of the thread so I downvoted it and I did scroll past it and move on without saying anything. Then the dude whined and labeled everyone downvoting him as a coward, presumably because he assumed they supported Trump (remember how you feel about people being mislabeled and denigrated?) so I corrected him about my reasoning. What the fuck is wrong with that?

    The irony of you not scrolling past my comment and instead chastising me is palpable.

      JFC, I didn’t say not to downvote or to have literally any other honest opinion about it.

      Take your straw manning elsewhere, you can’t debate reasonably so we’re done here.
