1/5 of Trump's US condominiums since 1980 may have been money laundering, 1300 to shell companies

    I have a real estate license. Cash purchases are very common. I have also personally bought a house with cash. During the last crash, there were some sweet deals. You just have to season the money (prove it has been in your bank for a few months) if you want to get a loan. I was a mortgage officer so I know a few things about real estate finance. The banks were able to keep all their bogus debt on their books because of the bailouts and that is why rents are sky high now and why real estate prices recovered. Also, the assholes who caused the crash in the first place and then were bailed out then formed venture groups to buy up depressed real estate at bargain prices and....rent them out to you at a much higher rate of rent. Enjoy, peasants. Oh, yeah, but continue the outrage circle jerk cause Trump!

    How common is money laundering in your field? What does it mean to you that Trump has had the involvement with money launderers that he has?

    Thanks for posting that.

    I can't figure out if they're saying that 30 percent of all high-end real estate deals involved suspicious activity and potential money laundering or if 30 percent of high-end real estate deals that they were examining under their watchdog program involved suspicious activity and potential money laundering.

    How common is money laundering in your industry? Is it normal for Trump to have had the involvement with money launderers that he has?

    This on par with RIP's threads "Obama really is a Muslim here is proof" "Obama is going to rig the system so he can be president for a 3rd term" I hope some of the people here realize they are the left versions of RIP

    It reads like 30% of those under review were suspicious. As for trump knowingly being involved in laundering money, it seems very unlikely. The sheer volume of transactions involved probably means some got through though.

    Reading these articles and seeing the language purposefully used, it's clear they are speculating a majority of their claims. Granted I'd expect as much from such worldly publications like Buzzfeed or RawStory lol.

    Honestly, I could see this practice going up. Since journalists could care less about actual news, so they can out possible trump tower tenants for virtue signaling leftists to attack.
