Lawsuit Charges Trump Organization With Racketeering

In case anyone has forgotten, Donald Trump has a plethora of legal problems. Here’s a brief overview:

  • The U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York has multiple ongoing criminal investigations into the Trump Organization and Trump inaugural committee.
  • Numerous women are suing Trump in connection with his sexual infidelity and fondness for engaging in sexual harassment and sexual assault.

And now, Trump and his three oldest children — Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric — are being sued for fraud and racketeering.


A lawsuit has been filed in New York federal court, and it accuses the Trump family of:

“[Receiving] secret payments from three business entities in exchange for promoting them as legitimate opportunities, when in reality they were get-rich-quick schemes that harmed investors, many of whom were unsophisticated and struggling financially.”


The suit also depicts the Trump organization as:

“A racketeering enterprise that defrauded thousands of people.”

The lawsuit focuses on three business entities which the Trump Organization lent its name and prestige to:

  • ACN, a telecommunications firm that gave Trump money in exchange for endorsing its products.
  • Trump Network, which sold the now defunct Trump Vitamins nutritional regimen.
  • Trump Institute, a Trump University-like entity that the lawsuit claims offered “extravagantly priced” real estate seminars.

Two attorneys filed the suit on behalf of four plaintiffs who are identified with pseudonyms such as Jane Doe, say their case is designed to pull the curtain back on the Trump Organization. Attorneys Roberta Kaplan and Andrew Celli Jr. noted that the lawsuit:

“Connects the dots at the Trump Organization and involves systematic fraud that spanned more than a decade, involved multiple Trump businesses and caused tremendous harm to thousands of hardworking Americans.”


This lawsuit could also provide an inside look at the inner workings of the Trump family business enterprise and serve to bolster a case of racketeering and fraud, both of which are believed to be under investigation by the Southern District of New York and New York attorney general.

As we’ve long suspected, the Trump family is nothing but a bunch of grifters, and it now appears their criminal behavior is about to be exposed for the world to see.

    • This is a civil suit, but discovery for it could reveal tax & business documents … or force them to pay off duped investors to get a “non-discosure” / consent.

  1. Anyone that thinks Trump is going down are if for a big fall. Trumps Republican buddies are going too do what ever it takes to keep him in power as to keep themselves in power. The law an order party (Republicans) is now the most corrupt party ever, driven by the righteous Tea Party which are the biggest crooks out there. Hang on too your wallet because they’re coming after what ever you have left.
