For decades, there have been hints, rumors, and allegations that Donald Trump and his company, the Trump Organization, have engaged in money laundering for Russian mobsters, oligarchs, and other criminals who make their fortunes illegally and need a way to wash their profits via legitimate enterprises such as real estate purchases. Real estate, of course, is how Trump has made his millions over the years.
But now we have two new allegations that Trump has indeed been involved in the illegal laundering of money, and one one them comes from a former staffer who has been trickling out damaging information about the Donald for months now.
Noel Casler worked as a showrunner on Trump’s NBC reality show, “The Apprentice,” and he tweeted out Monday that at many of the parties held after filming of “Apprentice” episodes, there were “Mob types” and that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were also present for these soirees. Casler is now a stand-up comedian, but he wasn’t joking in the least with what he had to say in his latest posting:
Anyone who attended a taping or afterparty of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ knows most of the guests were Russian ‘Mob’ types. Felix Sater was there as well and would make introductions between Ivanka & Jared to these folks. It was like speed dating for money launderers. @IvankaTrump

But it was something written in response to Casler’s tweet by well-known Russia expert Sarah Kendzior, author of Hiding In Plain Sight, that caused many to stand up and take a second look. Kendzior posted this:
In HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT, I’ve got a chapter on how The Apprentice was used to whitewash money-laundering operations along with Trump’s image: “In the end, The Apprentice canceled America.” https://t.co/IpjLWPjBH8 pic.twitter.com/WuVxJliAW9

Be sure and pay special attention to this paragraph from the section Kenzidor included a screenshot of:
“And so, the grift continued. Between 2007 and 2018, buyers tied to the former Soviet Union made eighty-six cash purchases at Trump properties. In 2018, Congressman Adam Schiff, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, confirmed that the purchases indicated evidence of money-laundering.”
All of this certainly seems to suggest that Donald Trump, his company, and the Trump Organization (which is now run by the president’s two eldest sons, Don Jr. and Eric) is laundering billions of dollars for Russian interests and also explains why the Trump administration has been so hospitable to the Kremlin and Russian President Vlaidmir Putin.
One day all of this information is going to be exposed for the world to see. And when it is, don’t be surprised if it shows that Donald Trump and his corporation are nothing but a massive pass-through for illegal money from overseas. And that would mean that the current president is completely compromised and working on behalf of a hostile foreign government that is actively seeking to destroy the United States.
