The question is simple, will the 45th President of the United States end up in jail when he leaves office. The story to understand is how did we get here?
Donald Trump's administration has been filled with indictments, rumors, and speculation that his ties to Russia have influenced his policy decisions and compromised his ability to lead. The deeper question is inside the fracturing media environment: what is true and what is simply rumor?
The politics of anger, fear, and division has compromised the biggest story of our generation. Mainstream media outlets compromised by corporate media dollars pander to each side of the aisle, only filtering news for each party line. Trump Mafia is a deep investigative dive into three major threads that surround President Donald Trump:
1. What are the many crimes that Donald Trump could or would be charged with related to his time in the office or his family's work inside the Trump Organization?
2. Who exactly is investigating the President currently, and what possible crimes are they really looking into?
3. Are there concrete ties between Donald Trump, the Trump Family, or associates related to Russian Intelligence and the Russian Mafia?
Welcome to another episode of Trump Mafia. I am your returning host, Aaron May.
The target... I mean subject of this episode of Trump Mafia is Jared “The Kush” Kushner. The most spectacularly unqualified member of Trump’s cabal. On past episodes, we have covered equally notable names but at least they had a story to their story.
This guy is a Late-Night Talk Show punchline.
We def will cover his past and give you background, but at the end of the day, he’s just a trust fund douchebag whose ultra-rich real estate felon of a father, Charlie “OG Kush” Kushner, greased 2 state senators & the school to get Jared into Harvard, at some point hooks up with Trump’s daughter and bingo bongo, he’s in charge of bringing peace to the middle east. You know, a kush job.
I have racked my brain thinking that there HAD to be SOME genius nefarious move for having this Sentient Kohl’s Mannequin (to quote John Oliver), as an advisor. Had to be something more than nepotism, something that made sense like Kushner had a secret pipeline to a Russian sex ring that The Don could grab some more pussy from.
I even pondered the possibility of a dark secret that the Kush could extort The Don over, but that would be too smart for the Kush.
So WHY THE F**K is this “Harvard’s Shiniest Mistake” in the White House? Even ex-Harvard schoolmate Natalie Portman thinks he’s a tool who cheated his way through school.
PILLOW TALK W/MIKE LINDELL
Although our approach to this podcast seems unhinged at times, we feel the that our reporting should echo the people, and events that we are reporting on. From the Russian mobsters to the crooked political allies—and lest not forget—the absurd sons who flounder and flail like Kendall and Roman Roy in HBO’s Succession.
Trump’s behavior in and out of office has had a lasting and disturbing effect on this country unearthing and amplifying the same kind of negative-driven slime that Venkman, Egon and Ray (a.k.a. the Ghostbusters), discovered flowing under New York City like a river.
That said, there is one guy who might be more unhinged than Rudy and that’s sayin’ a lot. His name is Mike Lindell and like most of the other Trump Mafia, he is like a gift that keeps on giving. At least in the crazy dept.
Mike Lindell is the owner of My Pillow, a pillow company based in Chaska, Minn. It was founded by Lindell, a former crack cocaine and gambling addict, after the idea for My Pillow according to Lindell, came to him in a dream. The business took off after it began airing infomercials in 2011, and Mr. Lindell’s interest in politics have grown since then as well. In court filings it shows that Lindell spends an average of $5 million a month on advertising. Much of that spending has been with Fox News, which raised Mr. Lindell’s profile with the Dystopian Don.
Alright, Alright Alright….. So, the probe into Donnie seems to be moving forward, this is why I am here to hopefully one day be able to analyze and pick apart a criminal trial that revolves around our former f**k-wad of a President.
When I started Trump Mafia, I wanted to make some sense of what just happened, make some sense of what happened to the media and the president, and what exactly happened to our country, in doing so maybe I would feel better about what the f**k just happened.
But I have to say, He is still here, like a hemorrhoid that just won’t go away, it’s there and sometimes you ignore it, but its still there and you still feel it.
Here is the thing, I’m completely fine with Donnie giving wedding speeches, for all I care he should become a f*****g wedding DJ, but I want to be clear here and I have said this from the top, if the Manhattan DA, or the Southern District or the Eastern District doesn’t indict DONALD J TRUMP, I do believe that he will become part of our daily routine again, and I think you remember that daily routine, the rodeo circus that he conducted across the globe.
He has to go to jail, and there has to be consequences or karma, and that process is starting, and we keep getting hints of the process.
The first step is there is a grand jury that has been convened in New York but what exactly does this mean in layman’s terms, what is actually going on here?
THE REAL RUDY
Rudy, Rudy Rudy….I’ve yet to quote the bible in this series, but to quote the King James version 2 Samuel Chapter 1 - “Oh how the mighty have fallen.”
Rudolph William Louis Giuliani, once America’s hero, America’s Mayor, has become a laughingstock of the news, a punchline for late night hosts and pundits and possibly the most pathetic of all the Trump Mafia crew members.
On paper, this guy was as good as it gets, I mean a real f*****g stud of the judicial system. He served as US Associate Attorney General from 81-93 and US Attorney for the Southern District of NY from 83’ to 89’ and in 94’ he became the 107th Mayor of NYC. Seriously. A F*****g Rockstar.
In the 80s, as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York he led the federal prosecution of New York City mafia bosses. He turned Times Square from a drug and porn epicenter in NYC into a veritable Disneyland filled with corporate restaurants, and businesses and made it into one of the biggest tourist attractions in the country.
Rudy Gazooty was also widely credited with the steeply falling crime rates in NY, well ahead of the national average.
In 2001, he was named Time Magazine’s Man of the Year, and if that’s not enough, in 2002, he was given an honorary knighthood by the Queen of Goddam England. I mean COME ON!
So how did this “G” f**k it all up?
Well, that’s the story I want to tell. You see, although he received those accolades, behind-the-scenes our headline-grabbing crime fighter, was not all pure of heart and most of his greatest hits, had a dark lining, which I will dig into, and when you understand the “REAL RUDY”—the Rudy who was married to his OWN F*****G COUSIN FOR 14 YEARS—gimme a minute, I will explain this one—you will see that there has been no real fall from grace, he’s always been a douche bag.
Before we delve into this episode, quick programming note.
Since leaving office, our favorite reality show star/ex-prez, has apparently lost 14lbs due to a fulltime steady diet of golf, and has returned to a human skin tone abandoning his trademark Cheetoh orange.
Now on to the show— but before we dive in, I have to say that out of all the characters in the Trump Mafia, this guy might be the most perplexing member of his Cabal. There is so much talk and speculation about this guy’s moves during the Trump Regime that his name will live on not just in infamy, but most likely in classrooms, boardrooms and news departments for eons to come as a case study into our very own system of justice. (Please insert your pov on why his conduct is so precedent setting.)
Ladies and Gents, may I present to you- Ex Attorney General William Pelham Barr.
As always, a little background on our target, I mean subject.
Willie Barr is an attorney who served as the 77th and 85th United States Attorney General in the administrations of Presidents George H. W. Bush and you-know-who.
Barr also did a 4yr stint in the 70s at the CIA. Before becoming the AG in ‘91, he held numerous other posts within the Department of Justice, so he got to know his way around the system. From ‘94 to 2008, he did corporate legal work which made him a multimillionaire.
Interestingly enough and most likely reason for his appointment under the Trump administration, was his that Barr was a longtime proponent of the unitary executive theory, which believes the Prez should have TOTAL AND UNFETTERED AUTHORITY over the executive branch of the U.S. government making him the perfect foil for ole Donny boy’s dirty work.
Paul builds a "Mana-Fortress"
When I came up with the title Trump Mafia, my impetus was driven by the fact that Trump literally operates like a Mafia boss. I am not the first to draw this comparison, but it resonated so strongly with me, that I felt an exploration intothebelief that he operates like a “DON” (pun intended) and in fact operates A REAL CRIME FAMILY needed some attention.
To understand this comparison, you have to first understand the way a true mob boss operates. First and foremost, they surround themselves with minions who are willing to “go to the mat” for them.
This is very important.
We all know that DON MUSSOLINI insists on blind loyalty and allegiance, and we also know that “TRANSACTIONAL TRUMP” only gives when he gets.
That said, the most powerful sword he wields is even more seductive than money, it’s the “PARDON CARROT”. This singular power of the President isdangledto his criminal band of neer-do-wells. Just remember that as we will circle back on that later in this episode.
The other element that rarely is appreciated due to the constant barrage of Trump’s assaults in the news cycle, is the immense totality of his criminal web. When you’re making the comparison of a person to a Crime Boss, you are comparing them to someone with a vast network of operatives all conspiring on your behalf.
Additional, I feel it is equally important to give some airtime to some of his more nefarious “COMPLICIT CRONIES”.
We already explored Michael Cohen, Trump’s flipping fixer, as he had some serious unreported ties to Russia, but now we’re going to move on to another player on the board with more ties to Russia than vodka.
His name is Paul Manafort.
Who is the narrator?
Who is the host?
Listen to the whole podcast with an open mind. I have questions about the police suicides that happened after 1/6 in Washington, D.C. Police who were at the riot. Why did they give their lives, the guilt of association to the riot, or PTSD because of the riot on 1/6?
Just regurgitating stuff reported elsewhere. He doesn’t really make the case.
