Trump’s statements in old lawsuit could haunt him in future cases

 

Donald Trump once said he calculated his net worth, to a degree, on his "feelings," and that he put the "best spin" on some of the assets.
"I think everybody" exaggerates about the value of their properties. "Who wouldn't?"
Did he inflate values? "Not beyond reason," Trump said, insisting he gave his "opinion" to a key associate and "ultimately" let that person make the decision, according to an exchange in a 2007 deposition.
The exchange takes on fresh meaning this spring as Manhattan prosecutors investigate whether Trump's "best spin" was common practice in local real estate circles — or if he crossed the line into illegal activity.
The answer could determine whether Trump ends up facing criminal charges.
The public record already sheds lots of light on how Trump has run the Trump Organization. A CNN examination of sworn depositions, interviews with former employees, and published accounts shows that Trump has tried repeatedly to push responsibility for his valuation decisions onto his chief financial officer.
At the same time, the documents and depositions appear to show that, even as Trump claimed that he left those valuation decisions to someone else, he was also deeply involved in running his business.

  1. Hopefully very soon; “Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV” Turns into; “Prison, Inmate, Cell Door, Camera, CCTV.”

    1. meanwhile there are people sleeping on dirt at the boarder and this so what clown cable decides to do a vid on

    2. @String Bean We may strive to show a trade partner that they need to change, but at the end of the day, they are still a major trade partner and so your child like notion that we can stop doing business, or boycott, or impose tarrifs and sanctions is cute. It’s really difficult to be taken seriously about human rights abuses when our country has institutional racism, the highest population of it’s citizens in prison, a definite problem with it’s judicial system whose cops keep murdering black people, and a political party hell bent on forcing their “fake morality” on everyone else. Try cleaning up your own country before you worry about another.

    3. @The Tweatles If the parents support their child, it’s none of our business and the government should have no say about what happens in a woman’s body.

    4. This was know about him way before he got into the White House. Our representatives knew this since before the election. The fact our leader never address this before hand prove our elected officials purposely supported a criminal to lead our country.

  2. Trump throws so many of his associates under the bus, they’re going to have to put monster truck tires on the bus just to drive over the pile.

    1. @Star Gazer the fact that you think the world revolves around you means that you are very narrow minded. Current date and time is April 2nd 12:27 pm. Which according to April fools rules… trying to fool someone after the 1st of April makes you the fool. You’re just living in the past…

    2. Anyone who had association with Donny should know he will throw you under the bus. When will they learn?

  3. Pretty sure Uncle Con is checking on a way to throw him under the bus if the feds find a way to get to him! He should come out clean and learn from Cohen’s story!

    1. When will Chinese News Network CNN give a Break to Our beloved leader President Trump , “ CNN ” & Robert “ wack job ” Mueller S.C couldn’t get the Job Done !!

  4. They’re FINALLY looking into those ridiculous NDA’s and Pledges of Loyalty Trump made his republican senate members sign when he took the presidency.

    1. I’m pretty sure that an NDA can’t stop you from testifying or from cooperating with law enforcement.

    2. When will Chinese News Network CNN give a Break to Our beloved leader President Trump , “ CNN ” & Robert “ wack job ” Mueller S.C couldn’t get the Job Done !!

    3. @Don Nwzad Wondering exactly how much you get paid to troll webpages? Are you that desperate for a job. I could pay you to wash poo out of shoe treads for our local school kids if your interested.

    4. @T Electronix Yes, but now it stops no one from telling any truth publicly. Which seems to have more power these days.

  5. Firmly convinced they will be discovering the extent of Trump’s criminal empire for the next decade

    1. Hopefully the ancient hulking wreck will just drop dead, and the whole stinking mess of the trump era will disappear.

  6. You try and pass a counterfeit 20 bill = death. You steal millions, it takes years to be brought to trial. I hate our criminal system.

    1. @M P Yes, Our family cat is missing some hair. All cats shed hair but we can’t find no hair around the house.
      DTRUMP TRUMP STOLE OUR CAT’S HAIR

  7. In a few months Trump’s private plane will end up on Pawn Stars.
    Trump: “I think it’s worth at least 100 million.
    Pawn Stars: “I’ll give you 75 bucks.
    Trump: “I’ll take it.”

    1. Hi !…. I’m Joe Biden….

      …and I can now confirm that
      “The Ukraine” has
      “finally” called, to “congratulate”
      me, on my “strange” victory….

      I’m releasing their “funds”,
      next week……………..

    1. @Nando that isn’t how economics works you utter fool.. supply and demand has never and will never function in they way you described.

    2. @Sonja Vargas Ok so the kids are in cages right now on top of one another ! Do you not have eyes to see ? Joe and Obama put the cages there in the first place and when Trump was in the children were being taken care of and not just handed over to someone who claimed to be family they actually had to be family ! Biden is doing nothing to help these people right now . What is he doing then if he’s helping them ? Only one Biden is helping is the cartels .

    3. @StopCallingMe Shirley God Emperor Trump had 4 years to “lock her up” and it didn’t happen. Just like all the other false promises and lies he sold you.

    4. @Sari J Merrick Trump did not take care of anything. Trump only took care of himself and his family. Trying to build an empire for himself with trying to overthrow the election. So glad people stand up now and bring out the truth about this cheating, Lying, insane Trump.
      Well you think what you want to think but I know it’s already sad enough that parents send their children all alone to a foreign country to survive and have a better life. You should be thankful to live in a democracy.

  8. Can you imagine any of us tell the IRS during tax season that our incomes are a matter of our own opinions? Lock him up.

    1. What gets me is how he has been able to tell the IRS whatever he wants & they just shrug & process his claims. I know they are overloaded, but he’s been very high profile since the early-mid 80’s. And banks, too, they DELIBERATELY looked the other way.

    2. @T Electronix Well.. He has a very different Jesus than the one in the bible. His is the name-it-and-claim-it Jesus that doesn’t exist, except in the minds of Paula White, Kenneth Copeland, Joel Olsteen, etc.,

    3. @Dolly Madison you mean something like when Obama weaponized the IRS against the Tea Party? Yeah, you got a leg to stand on cupcake.

    1. He’d even throw his own kids under the bus if he thought it would save his own skin. Especially Eric.

    2. I think it’s very telling that many times Trump is referred to, not as President Trump, but ex-president Trump. The rest of the former Presidents still living are referred to as “President”. Apparently those gentlemen have earned the right to retain the title, but Trump has not, and I must admit that I agree.

    1. Hi !…. I’m Joe Biden….…..

      …and the girl scouts are scheduled
      out on the south lawn
      this afternoon…….

      It’ll be great to get outdoors
      and enjoy the “fresh hair”….….

    2. Hello ?……in the kitchen ?…
      I’m Joe Biden…..…..

      Can you please move
      my “walker” from the desk
      over here to my chair ?…..….

      Thank you dear…
      here is a “nobel peace prize”
      for your efforts….….

    3. Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…….

      Did you know dog hair
      doesn’t smell
      NEARLY as good,
      as little girls’ hair ?….. ….

    4. Hi !… I’m Joe Biden…..….

      Can somebody from my cabinet
      show me where China is,
      on a map ?….…..

      Thank you sir..
      Here is a “nobel peace prize”
      for your efforts….….

  9. Trump: “Weiselberg? I vaguely recall someone by that name. Might be him. Who knows? I think he was a low level employee, mostly a coffee boy. That’s just my opinion”

    1. @Don Nwzad I thought you were serious at first, then I realized it was April Fools. Thank goodness, I was concerned for you there for a while.

    2. Except for his family, Trump sees everyone else “low-level”. He will “sacrifice” anyone to protect himself.

    3. @Auntie Jen he will sacrifice even his family to save himself. Believe you me. It will take the most for him to throw them under the bus, but he will do it if that’s what it takes.

    4. Hi !…. I’m Joe Biden….

      …and I can now confirm that
      “The Ukraine” has
      “finally” called, to “congratulate”
      me, on my “strange” victory….

      I’m releasing their “funds”,
      next week……………..

    5. @OJ Idenbay prove it. Impeach him. And if Biden is proven to have done that, I’ll support his removal. Because such accusations should not be partisan. You shouldn’t allow some to get away with crimes because they’re your party members. Justice must be blind. Trump was acquitted twice because of partisanship.

  10. The George Floyd getting lynched for allegedly passing a bunk twenty versus Trump cheating taxes for tens of millions without consequence is revelatory. Can we as a society afford not to reconcile this disparity and inequity?

    1. @Randi Bagley-Goodwin They are there while Kamela cackles and laughs about it and Biden does soccer interviews. Atleast someone is addressing the problem . I’m glad your ok with that .

    2. Robble robble robble robble robble robble robble robble robble robble. Trump’s bad.
      Robble robble robble robble.
      Seen it on CNN. Me smart now.

    1. I agree, but I am still going to have faith in our system. I got to, this is America. Trump needs to pay for something with 30 cases against him.

  11. I’m going to call my Tax Assessor’s office right now and tell them that the value of my vehicle and house is, in my opinion, $1.00, so they should lower my tax bill.

    1. the question is how come you will not get away with this. and he did for so many years. Justice system???? lol

  12. This is a Good Start to hold the Orange Pumpkin accountable for a lifetime of crime by giving him a date in Criminal Court with Lady Justice.

    1. It’s entertaining that you actually believe this dribble. The fake news has been leading you on for 5 years with “the walls are closing in on Trump” and you libs keep falling for it.

  13. With all of my heart, I hope the prosecutors can find leverage against Weiselberg. I have never actually seen justice, in the 52 years I have been breathing. I need for something to go the right way. I need to see good triumph over evil, just once.

    1. Thats how i feel about the democrats Nancy p, shummer ,obama, killery , and nothing ever happens to anyone so dont plan on it here
