A court-ordered financial auditor has caught Donald Trump quietly moving $40 million from the Trump Organization into a personal bank account—seemingly so the former president could pay his whopping $29 million tax bill.

Trump isn’t supposed to be moving any money around without alerting Barbara S. Jones, a former federal judge in New York tasked with babysitting the Trump Organization for its relentlessly shady business practices. But on Wednesday, she notified a New York state court about some major bank transfers that were never brought to her attention by the Trumps.

    You’re confusing the information not being readily available with people not actual wanting it.

    You can prefer whatever you like in terms of discourse by scrolling past the parts you don’t like. It doesn’t mean you get to mislabel people’s questions to denigrate them. It’s intellectually dishonest.

      Man I’m allowed to downvote shit I don’t want to see at the top of every post. Like that’s why they put that functionality on this site, I am allowed to use it to vote on what’s the most relevant comment. You’re not the ruler of Lemmy.

      It was a redundant, pointless, low effort comment that repeated the one at the top of the thread so I downvoted it and I did scroll past it and move on without saying anything. Then the dude whined and labeled everyone downvoting him as a coward, presumably because he assumed they supported Trump (remember how you feel about people being mislabeled and denigrated?) so I corrected him about my reasoning. What the fuck is wrong with that?

      The irony of you not scrolling past my comment and instead chastising me is palpable.

        JFC, I didn’t say not to downvote or to have literally any other honest opinion about it.

        Take your straw manning elsewhere, you can’t debate reasonably so we’re done here.
