Staggering $40 Million Of Trump’s Inaugural Funds Missing

President Donald J. Trump’s Inauguration Ceremony, Jan 20, 2017

In case you missed it, a stunning segment on OutFrontCNN with Erin Burnett said that a staggering $40 million dollars of Trump’s inaugural funds have just disappeared. Citing a Pro Publica report, host Erin Burnett said, “We know that they[Trump’s Inaugural Committee] raised $107 million from donors….Of the $107 million, we to this day do not know where $40 million of it went. How is that possible?” Erin Burnett is not alone in her outrage. A lot of Americans are shocked at how this level of public corruption has gone unanswered(no prosecution) for 2 years. The full OutFrontCNN segment is available here but the relevant clip is below.

An even more troubling revelation from the bombshell OutFrontCNN segment is that Ivanka Trump who doubles up as Presidential daughter and Adviser apparently was in the middle of the price negotiations between the Trump Inaugural committee and the Trump Organization raising obvious conflict of interest questions–self-dealing. The Trump Organization apparently extremely overcharged the Trump Inaugural Committee for rooms, meals and event space at Trump Hotel in DC and there are emails showing that Ivanka Trump was in on the price negotiations.  

This is hands down one of the biggest stories of the week but it has strangely received very little mainstream media attention. It is mind-boggling how $40 million dollars can just disappear in thin air–outright theft/embezzlement– and two years later nobody is either sitting in jail for it, or fighting a criminal indictment. Can you imagine if this happened under the Obama administration and the Obama family was suspected of having embezzled inaugural funds? 

This is by all objective standards a shocking case of public corruption. But you don’t have to take Yours Truly’s word for it, listen to what Richard Painter, the Ethics Chief under the George W. Bush administration told OutFrontCNN host Erin Burnett; “It’s shocking. Somebody’s stealing money….somebody’s putting money in their own pocket…$40 million dollars unaccounted for, that is a telltale sign of fraud…criminal activity is very likely. If we had seen any amount of money missing in the Bush inaugural committee I would have called people into my office and said I want to find out exactly where that money is, and better find out fast because it could be a crime…..”

Bottom line folks when incidents of blatant corruption by public officials go on for this long without any legal consequences, the spotlight shifts from the corrupt act itself to who we are as a society. In this case it raises the question as to whether certain people are above the law. There is absolutely no way that two years after a suspected theft/embezzlement by members of any other previous U.S. administration, one that was widely reported by the mainstream media and has a lot of documentary evidence, would not have yielded indictments already.

For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out.

  1. I find this laughable! 60% of us knew going in that he was a ConMan .
    We are just waiting for the other 40% to wake the fuck up !

  2. That’s criminal, but what about the TRILLION in bonds that went missing on 9/11 the day after Cheney announced the missing funds. Trump’s a crook but he’s small potatoes to the gigantic scandals of our government; past present and likely future.

      1. This is NOT about Bernie Sanders… this is about CROOKED, DECEPTIVE, DESPICABLE DONALD tRUMP>>GET OFF THE TRAIN IF YOU CAN’T RIDE WITH THE WHEELS!!! I don’t hide my name… I have no SHAME in this because I did NOT vote for tRUMP. I voted for Bernie Sanders!!!

        1. SO HERE`S A BIGGER FISH FOR YOU TO FRY, Mayor Bill de Blasio’s Wife Loses $850 Million Dollars
          By David J. Harris Jr. -March 3, 2019
          Chirlane McCray, the wife of NYC mayor Bill de Blasio, can’t account for hundreds of millions in federal taxpayer money. The money was going to NYC’s Thrive program for people with mental health problems that are overseen by McCray. But now, that money cannot be accounted for, and Thrive keeps few records on their accomplishments or their spending, making it impossible to locate the money. ( $850,000,000. ) Eight hundred fifty million dollars is nothing to sneeze at.

        2. Trump has done more for this country than Obama and Clinton together! They are just trying to destroy him before the election, but in reality they are handing it to him. Children holding a grudge! Grow up!

          1. Linda H. you are as full of it as a Christmas turkey. Stop your listening only to FOX news and Limbaugh, and join in the real world and facts. We are not holding a grudge; we are trying to hold his bone-spur-free- feet to the fire. His lies and crooked dealings, not to mention his constant insults and poor judgement have hurt our country and all Americans.

    1. Anything goes! How much of the 13 billion for Haiti is missing. US billions in Haiti or in the Dominican Republic is a monstrous amount of cash with little results. They squelched that one as you hear nothing of that theft.

  3. Rumsfield mentioned “missing” trillions after 9/11 but it was missing in receipts and paperwork NO trillions we’re or are missing. Conspiracy theorists jumped on this right away as a trillion dollars were stolen/ misappropiated. Not true

  4. My bet is that Trump pocketed the $40 million since he’s made a big show about not taking a salary……. there is no fucking way Trump does anything for free

  5. 2 wars not taken out of the budget. You might want to try there for the missing trillions .
    As far as Trump, check his pockets. Or his sons.

  6. I don’t trust anything that CNN says. They don’t like President Trump and are for the Democrats. Just another way to try and get President Trump out of office. How come CNN knows about this and nobody else. Didn’t hear it on the news. Trump is worth Billions
