A court-ordered financial auditor has caught Donald Trump quietly moving $40 million from the Trump Organization into a personal bank account—seemingly so the former president could pay his whopping $29 million tax bill.

Trump isn’t supposed to be moving any money around without alerting Barbara S. Jones, a former federal judge in New York tasked with babysitting the Trump Organization for its relentlessly shady business practices. But on Wednesday, she notified a New York state court about some major bank transfers that were never brought to her attention by the Trumps.

      Guillotines are ment to minimize pain. Might I suggest a reel of high test fishing line and 1995 Suzuki Samurai.

        Have you considered a career in the CIA? I hear they really appreciate this combination of creativity and questionable personal ethics 🙃😅

        They were, yes. But you’d be surprised how much that fails in practice.

        For example, it was concluded that it took 7 seconds for death to actually happen, and that’s with a sharp blade. A dull one might not even be lethal.
