Prosecutor Wants DOJ to Investigate Harry Reid Connection to Suspected $2M Bribe
While we’re all focused on whether Russia had anything to do with our elections or not, the Davis County Prosecutor is calling for the Department of Justice to look into a potential connection between Harry Reid and what is believed to be a $2 million bribe.
How much do you want to bet that THIS won’t be dominating the mainstream media all week?
It is believed that Harry Reid may have received a $2M bribe to push the legalization of online gambling.
The Salt Lake Tribune published the story that should be getting the insane amount of attention that the Russia debacle is receiving.
The $2 million cashier’s check was drawn at a St. George bank Nov. 5, 2010.
From there, it was sent by FedEx to a Los Angeles attorney who represented Ireland-based Full Tilt Poker.
Made out to “Mail Media LTD” — a Full Tilt-owned entity used to launder online-gambling funds — the millions then were deposited at Basler Kantonalbank in Switzerland, where Mail Media had an account.
And from there, Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings is investigating whether it went into a Marshall Islands account in the name of Searchlight Holding Inc. to benefit, or even bribe, Harry Reid, the once-powerful majority leader of the U.S. Senate whom online poker companies had been courting to push a bill to legalize their gaming across the nation.
But documents gathered by The Salt Lake Tribune from state and federal investigations, court filings and public records requests — including audio recordings of interviews and thousands of pages of transcripts, summaries by investigators, emails, requests for evidence and other materials — show that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI failed to pursue a vigorous investigation of this money and any potential tie to Reid.
I mean would it really shock anyone if Reid did receive bribes? I mean come on, just one look at the guy and you can tell he’s a snake.
