Trump ally Elliott Broidy raided by feds in money laundering probe

1 0 0

Federal investigators raided the office of top Trump fundraiser and former Republican National Committee official Elliott Broidy in a money laundering investigation related to allegations that he cashed in on his close ties to the White House.

Federal agents raided Broidy’s office last summer in search of records related to his dealings with Trump’s inner circle and foreign officials, according to a sealed search warrant obtained by ProPublica. Broidy served as the finance chairman of Trump’s campaign and later the deputy finance chairman of the Republican National Committee along with longtime former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who also cashed in on his access to Trump by selling his influence to corporations trying to curry favor with the administration. Broidy stepped down after it was revealed he used Cohen to pay hush money to a former Playboy model with whom he'd had an affair.

That was only the tip of the iceberg.........
