    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I wonder if Trump will be allowed to run the Trump organization now.

    Will likely have impact on criminal charges yet to be laid. The kids were among the beneficiaries of this fraud, and presumably will be vulnerable to charges themselves.

    Which presumably could be leverage.

    Apparently there were 17 charges in total. Oy.

    Will this affect their ability to borrow (from legit credit entities)?

    Yep, nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
    It is a victory however and makes Trump look weaker and weaker by the day.

    $1.6 million? Not even chump change.

    Somebody explain the deleterious downside of this verdict to me, because unless as a result they indict somebody or everybody in the family, I don't see what it generates other than headlines.

    My understanding is that he has defaulted so many times that the New York banks already won't lend him money. That's why he borrows from German banks and some think Russian banks.

    The verdict may not be seriously consequential in the immediate sense, but its got to flavour subsequent legal actions.

    Eric Trump as much as said that back in 2014, in a conversation with golf writer James Dodson. Courtesy of a 2017 Vanity Fair article at https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017...nt-golf-course --

    Dodson had planned to play nine holes with Trump and Eric, along with pro golfer Greg Norman and Trump's bodyguard, and when he got there, Dodson asked where Trump was getting money. "He just sort of tossed off that he had access to $100 million," said Dodson, whose curiosity was piqued:

    "So when I got in the cart with Eric," Dodson says, "as we were setting off, I said, 'Eric, who's funding? I know no banks--because of the recession, the Great Recession--have touched a golf course. You know, no one's funding any kind of golf construction. It's dead in the water the last four or five years.' And this is what he said. He said, 'Well, we don't rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia.' I said, 'Really?' And he said, 'Oh, yeah. We've got some guys that really, really love golf, and they're really invested in our programs. We just go there all the time.' Now, that was three years ago, so it was pretty interesting.


    The same article goes on to quote Donald Trump, Jr from 2008, citing a Washington Post piece, quoting Donald, Jr at a 2008 real estate conference in New York:

    "Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets." Donald Trump, Jr. added, "we see a lot of money pouring in from Russia."

    I wonder if the court appointed monitor position for Trump Inc continues.


    We still have Trump 2024 signs up down here. Weird how a NY city crook is the hero for rural Murica. Our national psychosis is totally out in the open.
