Ironically the prosecutor who charged him in the 80’s but the case was thrown out before it was tried is Trumps new personal lawyer…

So I guess Noway is going to need to cancel all his accounts with Citigroup. Credit Cards, mortgages, etc. They also underwrite smaller and private credit cards and banks.

You’re absolutely right. If I had any. Thanks for that heads up! I’m disappointed I missed it myself!
