Trump Family Hit By Civil RICO suit

Postby toucana on October 29th, 2018, 7:48 pm 

Just eight days before the mid-term elections, Donald Trump and his family have been hit with a civil RICO suit (RICO stands for ‘Racketeering Influenced & Corrupt Organisations Act')

The civil suit effectively accuses the Trump family and Trump organisation of having dishonestly promoted a pyramid selling scheme called ACN in relation to Celebrity Apprentice. This is not a criminal case, and it’s not being brought by the government. Instead it’s a civil RICO lawsuit being filed by the investors who say they’ve been defrauded.

As recently as 2016, then candidate Trump flatly denied ever having heard of ACN, let alone of having ever promoted any of its commercial interests for profit.

Which makes the following video clip particularly interesting to watch:



ACN was, of course, a scam, as multiple commentators have already revealed. But its main product, a useless video phone, was run by WorldGate Communications, which was a partner of the Russian state and ran “data centers” in both America and Russia.

Trump energetically promoted this scam in Russia as well. There are plentiful video clips of him doing so in interviews on Russian language TV stations in 2013.
