Ivanka and jr. were almost charged with fraud in 2012 watch

    The corruption, the scandals, the bad faith dealing, it just keeps adding up. For the record, getting an indictment, requires nothing more than probable cause, only a conviction requires proof beyond a reasonable doubt. I can not count the times I have had to try a case where the prosecutor acknowledged the defendant might actually be not guilty-but the mindset for the poor, the non-affluent was always "lets just put it on, and let it go to a jury and see what happens." But for the wealthy-they can make "donations" to avoid prosecution in circumstances where just about anyone else would be charged. The hypocrisy of the chants "look her up"-in the face of EVERYTHING that is coming out...is stunning-but not at all shocking.
