Chump's former employees all had to sign NDAs, but those are expiring

Employees of Chump's resorts and casinos all had to sign NDAs and were afraid of being financially ruined if they talked. Well some of those NDAs are expiring after 25 or 30 years, and people are starting to talk. It's just like the ghostwriters Charles Leerhsen who wrote "Trump: Surviving at the Top" and Tony Schwartz who wrote "Trump: The Art of the Deal."

Employees who worked in the Atlantic City casinos have stories to tell - about the money-laundering for mobsters among others. It's all going to come out soon. The Feds have been on this for a long time. They don't care about Chump's losses, but they do care about the fraud, tax evasion, and the money-laundering. The State of New Jersey (Gov. Chris Christie) gave Chump a sweetheart deal to make his tax evasion charges go away. Chump paid pennies on the dollar and never admitted to any wrongdoing.

We need a whistle-blower website set up so these former employees can reveal stuff without fear of retribution. Chump's lying and fraudulent ways need to be exposed for what they are: an all-out assault on the US Government.

5. People know stuff, they shouldn't be afraid to talk

Now that these ghostwriters are talking, the old employees should be able to see that they can blow whistles too.

4. When you're asked to sign something like that, it should be a big red flag. (nt)

7. Tony Schwartz explains it in this article from the New Yorker

(link) https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2016/07/25/donald-trumps-ghostwriter-tells-all

This was published in June 2016 as Chump was stepping up to accept the nomination from the Repukes' party to be their candidate. Tony Schwartz had been under an NDA since 1986 and it had just expired. It's fascinating to read now, considering all that has happened in the last 3 years. 'Course at the time nobody thought Chump would win the election.

I've posted this several times on DU, and other articles and tweets from Tony Schwartz have been posted from time to time. He was and is adamant that Chump should never have been allowed to run. He says Chump would have been disqualified on mental and moral grounds, if the GOP had done the least amount of fact-checking.

9. So true about doing "the least amount of fact-checking"

It clearly was no secret what kind of person Donald Trump was over the years and everyone in New York knew. Exposes on Trump are usually about things that many people already knew. How did the republican party let this man get as far as he did?

12. Republican politicians

catered to the lowlifes and scum for years and now it is all coming back to bite them in the ass. They made promises they couldn't or wouldn't keep and along like Donald Trump, who appeared to speak their language without all the political jargon. What goes around, comes around eventually.

13. They thought they were the pros,

but America's biggest Con Man came along and hijacked their rubes from under them.

Remember, the only ones who were conned were Republics, and I suppose those who sat out the election because "there was no difference".

15. "hijacked their rubes from under them"

Perfect description and its even more pathetic, because Trump is not terribly smart. He was the right man, in the right place, at the right time (with a little help from Russia of course).

6. Any book by David Cay Johnston

Johnston has been on this story since the early or mid 1980s. And before him, Wayne Barrett who has since passed away.

Edited to add: also see my above post where I cited the New Yorker article/interview about Tony Schwartz called "Donald Trump's Ghostwriter Tells All."

16. So the NDAs will expire and then the employees can talk about

All the criminal activity they saw? I thought NDAís couldnít be used to cover up criminal activity.

17. We can only guess at this point

I never worked in the Chump casinos, and I don't know anyone who did. However David Cay Johnston and other authors have pursued this story for more than 20 years.

Former employees from talking about criminal activity?

20. So you said this is just speculation and referred to another

Person (Johnson) who has been tracking this story for years. Iím wondering if this is your speculation, or that of a reporter who may have more knowledge of the situation.

What I do know is that you canít use NDAís to cover up criminal activity, so I would be hesitant to speculate that is whatís going on here without a lot more information.
