Willie Sutton was asked why he robbed banks and his famous reply was ““I rob banks because that’s where the money is.”
We’ve just witnessed an investigation of multi-millionaire Paul Manafort and multi-millionaire Michael Cohen and both men are going to be in jail for a very long time and pay hefty fines because of the laws that they broke many years ago.
Honore de Balzac once said “Behind every great fortune there is a crime”.
My question is this: Manafort and Cohen would be free men if not for entanglements with the investigation of Trump. Presumably, they would have lived out their lives in peace and prosperity had it not been for this unfortunate association with Mr. Trump.
How many Manaforts and Cohens are there out there and why are we, the American people and our justice department, not looking into the financial affairs of more multi-millionaires?
