RICO ACT

Robert Mueller’s End Game. 

 

 

August 23 2018 

Donald Trump (Gemini June 14 1946) keeps saying there is no collusion but Mueller’s (Leo Aug 7 1944) end game is not collusion - his end game is convicting Donald J Trump, et al, under the RICO act in the State of New York where Trump resides and does business.  Trump may pardon himself and all the others in any Federal Action brought by Mueller but the Southern District of New York will take the Blue Ribbon evidence collected by Mueller and try him under New York Consolidated Penal Law PEN 460.00 which cannot be pardoned by any President;  only the Governor has pardon power over state actions.  My guess is the Trump Foundation or Trump Organization will provide the “unlawful welfare fund payments” that starts things rolling.    

 

      The Manafort (Aries April 1 1949) Trials and subsequent Michael Cohen (Virgo  Aug 25 1966) investigations serve to fulfill the main qualification for RICO to apply:  To convict a defendant under RICO, the government must prove that the defendant engaged in two (Manafort & Cohen) or more, (Don Jr Capricorn Dec 31 1977 is next) -  instances of racketeering activity and that the defendant directly (unindicted co-conspiritor) invested in, maintained an interest in, or participated in a criminal enterprise affecting interstate or foreign commerce. The law has been used to prosecute members of the mafia, the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, and Operation Rescue, an anti-abortion group, among many others. The case  brought against Trump University in California that was settled for $25 million just before the election was brought under the RICO Statute.  The irony of Richard Nixon (Capricorn) signing this law as well as Rudy Guiliani (Gemini) using it to lock up the other Teflon Don John Gotti (Scorpio) isn’t lost on me.
