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.

      This is not because it’s Trump; it’s because the system was made so rich people do not face consequences.

        Not true. When rich people steal from investors (or other types of equally-rich people), they face consequences right the fuck away.

        The system has the ability to work. It just doesn’t care about democracy as much as it cares about capital.

          Old money v New money. It’s a small club and they’re not accepting new members.

    What’s the punishment when a Billionaire violates a court order again? Oh that’s right, not a fucking thing.

      You do not fuck with the IRS. They got Capone on tax evasion.

        Before my life time, I see a bunch of spineless pushovers too cowardly to enforce the law.
