Haitian government claims ousted dictator ‘Baby Doc’ Duvalier laundered stolen money through Trump Tower

President Donald Trump insulted Haiti during an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, but he once signed off on a shady real estate deal with the nation’s ousted dictator.

-snip-

Records show more than 1,300 Trump condos were purchased through shell companies, which allow buyers to shield their finances and identities, and without a mortgage, which protects buyers from lender inquiries.

cording to the Buzzfeed News report, the Haitian government complained in the 1980s that former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier laundered money stolen from the Caribbean nation’s treasury by purchasing an apartment in Trump Tower.

Duvalier, nicknamed “Baby Doc,” was overthrown in 1986, but three years earlier used a Panamanian shell company called Lasa Trade and Finance to buy apartment 54-K in Trump’s Manhattan tower for $446,875 cash.

2. That's easily believable. He's involved in all sorts of stuff including

Being the go between a company selling a mobile network in Central America and Chinese money.

5. makes you wonder who else tRUMP has done this for?

All in name of money...is not American or patriotic and I almost guarantee you that he hasn't paid taxes on this...which is why he's refusing to release his tax returns...the one return we're aware of, is probably a fake tax return put out by tRUMP himself to cover this dark and dirty money...

6. High-end real estate is a great place to launder money ...

because the reporting requirements for the seller are very lax. There were many Russian owned condos in Trump properties.

Trump sold a mansion in Florida to a Russian oligarch at twice it's market value. Now, can that be considered a bribe?

Wouldn't it be poetic justice if this flew in his face with serious repercussions?
