Group Calls For Investigation Of Giuliani, Trump Money-Laundering

Group Calls For Investigation Of Giuliani, Trump Money-Laundering

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston is now reporting that an international human rights organization has requested that prosecutors in The Netherlands open a criminal investigation into several multi-billion dollar money laundering schemes that were facilitated by Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and a law firm where he used to work.

According to Johnston, the goal of the complaint is to examine how much money stolen from a former Soviet satellite benefitted Trump. The president is named 16 times in the complaint. He said that:

“The complaint describes one of the biggest fraud cases ever in which some of these money flows ultimately ended up in the Netherlands because Dutch service providers helped to cover up the money laundering acts.”

Details uncovered so far show that the illegal money laundering network began in the former Soviet satellite of Kazakhstan. It is estimated that $10 billion was stolen through embezzlement.

The complaint states that:

“This money was subsequently circulated by two Kazakh oligarch families via a worldwide network of shell companies. A number of these companies were established in the Netherlands. The money was subsequently invested in real estate projects in the United States and Europe, after which it was paid out as ‘profits’ via – once again – a network of shell companies.”

And they are clearly saying that the “real estate projects” involved in the illegal scheme are associated with President Donald Trump.

The complaint also alleges that part of the missing billions was run through shell corporations in The Netherlands with help from the law firm, Bracewell & Giuliani, where the president’s lawyer was a partner until 2016.

The complaint demanding a criminal investigation was filed by Avaaz, a global human rights organization in Washington which claims 48 million members. They have “issued an open call to prosecutors around the world to investigate the giant web of corruption that propelled Trump’s rise.”
