We don't know what Trump believed. We know what he did.

Analysis by Phillip Bump...

New York Times reporter Margaret Haberman's new book "Confidence Man" suggests that former president Donald Trump knew he'd lost the 2020 election but that something in his thinking later shifted.

John Oliver Talks Televangelism -- [frightening similarities to RTump marketing]

Aug 16, 2015: John Oliver gets to the heart of the matter:

and then takes action:

John Oliver Starts Church [Our Lady of Perpetual Exemption]
To Get Rich (1-800-THIS-IS-LEGAL)

* * * *

Did you notice the striking similarities to RTump's fundraising??? Rather than a prayer rug or
holy oil -- you get a hat...

Political Action Committees have a similar modus operandi... And send you a "special" certificate,
a "confidential" newsletter, or personalized address labels...

The NRA has used a similar MO... conferring Lifetime Memberships...

It heartbreaking how such marketers prey on America's most vulnerable... twisting hearts,
emptying pocketbooks, and tormenting government regulations to their advantage.

That is all...

What Would Leo Do???

WHAT LEONARD LEO wants you to know about Leonard Leo, first and foremost, is that
he is a Knight of Malta. The Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM) is a lay Catholic order
that claims descent from the Knights Hospitaller, founded in Jerusalem in 1099, at the end
of the First Crusade. It’s an extremely selective group. Of the 1.2 billion Catholics in the world,
only 13,000 are Knights of Malta—although most of them don’t go around bragging about it.

Creature of Habit, the RTumpster Is -- Spy Magazine -- 11/1986


by M. Connor


Where should gratitude be affixed? As far as we’re concerned, any setback encountered by casino operator Donald Trump is providential, always cause for merrymaking. And in a little-known court case, the litigious Trump, we hope, may be punished for filing a federal lawsuit in bad faith.

Sixteen years ago Congress enacted the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO), a law that invented a new federal crime called racketeering. The intent of RICO was to make it easier to prosecute mobsters, which it has done. But the RICO act also had a provision that permitted the bringing of civil RICO suits by private parties.

Just before Christmas last year, Trump had his lawyer, Richard Golub (Mr. Marisa Berenson), file a civil RICO suit against the perfectly respectable law firm of Fischbein, Olivieri, Rozenholc and (Herman) Badillo—the firm that had, in a highly publicized case, successfully represented the tenants of an apartment building Trump owns at 100 Central Park South. “1 don’t like being pushed around," Trump said at the time, “and now they're beginning to learn it."

Trump essentially argued that the opposing lawyers were racketeers because they opposed him--that their intention to “prevent, frustrate and inhibit" him from making larger profits by evicting the tenants constituted "extortion." A New York federal court told Trump to get lost, dismissing his case.

Last spring the U.S. Court of Appeals tor the Second Circuit affirmed that decision. Now pending in district court is a motion by Fischbein, Olivieri asking that a Trump company and its lawyers be sanctioned tor violating Rule 11 of the federal rules of civil procedure.

Rule 11 prohibits lawyers from instituting, on behalf of their clients, civil suits that are filed "to harass or to cause unnecessary delay or needless increase in the cost of litigation." If Trump loses, the court could order him to pay the legal expenses incurred by Fischbein, Olivieri.

Happily, the tide now seems to be running against Trump. The U.S, Department of Justice has come out in favor of forbidding civil RICO suits like Trump’s. And Congress seems about to do just that, by amending the law so that it permits civil suits only against convicted criminals.
