A report in Pro Publica and the New Yorker cites a $25,000 donation that Kasowitz made to Manhattan AG Cyrus Vance, Jr. just before he dropped an investigation into Plastic Surgery Barbie and Mullet-boy’s real estate shenanigans on behalf of TrumpSoHo.
An indictment seemed like a real possibility. The evidence included e-mails from the Trumps making clear that they were aware they were using inflated figures about how well the condos were selling to lure buyers.
No question that cyborg Ivanka and troll Donald Jr. are ethically privileged pieces of crap and we know Kasowitz is everything immoral fancy pants New York lawyers are supposed to be, but Cyrus Vance, Jr. is not known as anything but a straight shooter.
I’m willing to chalk this up as coincidence, but if further evidence comes out that shows Vance to be the potential cesspool this hints at, I’d be willing to lube the guillotine.
