There is an answer to how Trump managed to blow up $ 1 billion in campaign funds. Jared Kushner started a shell company and paid the Trump family $ 617 million.
Business Insider reported:
Most powerful adviser to President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, approved the creation of a campaign shell firm that secretly paid the president’s family members and spent nearly half of the campaign’s $ 1.26 billion war chest, one said with the Operation trusted person to insider.
The Shell company, which operates as American Made Media Consultants Corp. and American Made Media Consultants LLC, allowed Trump’s campaign to circumvent federal government-mandated disclosures. The tactics could be examined by the supervisory authorities of the federal elections.
The Trump family appear to have broken campaign funding laws by starting a Shell company and then paying themselves out money that was undisclosed and whose chances of winning are properly documented. The problem could go much deeper than campaign funding violations.
There is a potential for potential money laundering and conspiracy allegations if investigators discover that the Trump family not only tried to circumvent campaign funding laws, but were also involved in even more serious criminal activity.
Trump was so confident he would beat Joe Biden that he spent half the money his campaign raised on himself and his family. If Trump and Kushner believed what they were doing was going overboard, they would not have created a shell company to hide their activities.
Donald Trump will stay in politics because his main source of income is burdening his supporters and taxpayers.
The Trump campaign was a scam, and all of those red hats worn by believers who donated money filled Trump’s pockets.
