We all know that Donald Trump wins the election, and that is the new President, but one thing still is crossing in our minds: What will happen with the case of Trump scandals that marked his election campaign?
For the record, Florida’s three largest newspapers: The Miami Herald, the Tampa Bay Times and the Orlando Sentinel called for a federal investigation of Republican nominee Donald Trump’s payoff to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, which forced Trump to pay an IRS penalty and re-ignited media coverage of the Trump University scam and cover up. To date, 827 Floridians have joined the New York Attorney General’s lawsuit against Donald Trump.
The Tampa Bay Times wrote a harsh editorial entitled “Feds should investigate Bondi-Trump connection”:
“Federal prosecutors should investigate whether there is any connection between the decision by Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office not to pursue fraud allegations against Trump University and a $25,000 campaign contribution he gave her. Since Florida prosecutors will not touch this mess, the Justice Department is the only option. The appearance of something more than a coincidence is too dangerous, and the unresolved questions are too numerous to accept blanket denials by Bondi and Trump without more digging and an independent review.”
The Orlando Sentinel’s Scott Maxwell, who uncovered Trump’s illegal political bribe to Bondi in the first place give the honor of publishing an op-ed column. In the column they explaining that Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi deserved the bulk of the scrutiny as both a Republican elected official and as a lawyer who betrayed the public trust and that federal prosecution is the only genuine option available for the state’s top law enforcement officer. Maxwell’s three years of work reporting on Trump’s political bribery scheme yielded details that show the Florida Attorney General’s office was more interested in discharging victims complaints summarily, than helping any of the twenty-two Floridians who reported is burn in the alleged criminal racket:
“In one instance, Bondi’s office told a man who said he lost $26,000 that he might be better off surfing the Internet. “I encourage you to visit an Internet search engine such ashttp://www.yahoo.com or http://www.google.com to find information on any class action lawsuits you may benefit from,” wrote one Bondi staffer. Compare that to New York’s attorney general, who filed suit, labeling Trump University “a fraud from beginning to end.”
It’s scary to think that a state Attorney General would take a bribe to kill a major investigation, but even more disturbing that there’s, no checks on her elected office short of a federal prosecution – but that is the apparent state of affairs today in Florida.
It remains to see how things will develop in the future. But one thing is for sure we should not allow Trump to go unpunished if he is guilty.
