Former Trump tax attorney raided by the FBI in Chicago — again: report

Published

on

Donald Trump’s former Chicago tax attorney, Alderman Ed Burke, had his City Hall office raided by the FBI on Thursday — and it wasn’t the first time he had an office searched by the bureau.

NBC5 political editor Carol Marin tweeted Thursday evening that Burke’s City Hall office was “re-raided” by the bureau — the second time his office had been raided in a month after the FBI searched it on November 29.

On December 10, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that the FBI had also seized Burke’s cell phone. The same day, the newspaper also reported that the long-serving alderman’s  top political aide was questioned by the feds before the late November raid.

Burke, who’s been an alderman for almost 50 years, did Trump’s property taxes from 2006 until 2018.

"I love how this is eating you alive," Wilson wrote. "The mismatch between the economic status of your supporters and the price point of your resorts is exactly why you keep flogging the hell out of them. Your brand is failing, broken, and poisonous."

After criticizing President Barack Obama, the president continued.

"I'm the one who did the capturing," Trump insisted. "I'm the one who knows more about it than you people or fake pundits."

Legal scholar exposes the strange ‘missing link’ in Rudy Giuliani’s debunked Ukraine conspiracy theory

Published

on

Ryan Goodman, a professor at New York University School of Law, has written a new article with NYU colleague Alex Potcovaru exposing the direct link between President Donald Trump's request to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and to investigate a debunked conspiracy theory pinning the blame on Ukraine for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

Writing at Just Security, Goodman and Potcovaru examine past statements made by Giuliani both on cable news shows and on social media, and have discovered that Giuliani's efforts to get Ukraine to probe the 2016 election are also an effort to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
