A $2M check, Harry Reid and one frustrated prosecutor
The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | 12/11/2016 | TOM HARVEY AND JENNIFER DOBNER

Posted on 12/11/2016 1:33:09 PM PST by LiberalismDestroys

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.

Too big to jail, apparently.

He is guilty of more than just this stuff, but it’s a start...

Sam Gill should have looked into Dirty Reid’s China and Mob connections a little more...there is a ton of stuff there, course Dirty Reid would throw his own son under the bus for any of it...

Toss Obama and Pelosi and HilLIARy and Reid into Guantanamo

there’s plenty of room for them there now that Obama has released most of his IslamoNazi terrorist friends from Gitmo

The money trail to Reid has more twists and turns than a James Bond movie plot. One things is obvious - lobbying and bribing are almost synonymous in politics and Reid has a track record or accepting bribes in the past. I hope they pursue this and nail Reid as he thinks he’s walking out the door scot-free. No telling how much bribe money he’s accepted in the past given ow long he’s been in office. He is one evil looking SOB and runs with people connected to the mob. I think I’m beginning to understand why his treadmill beat him up.

Never hear about these stories on CNN.
Must mean it’s fake news.

As you all should know, I wrote Harry Reid’s only biography. I can tell you this article leaves out A LOT of what is going on behind the scenes. We are talking racketeering.

I track Reid on about 20 bribe deals - that I know of. Many more rumors.

I actually now know the guy who packaged $1 million from Lefty Rosenthal to Reid. This is beyond what is in the Salt Lake articles. Plus I know of another $600k

Yup. I got a heads up from the prosecutor himself. A lot more going on behind the scenes. I cover 50 years of Reid bribes. Unfortunately Mike Lee also up to his keister.

This does not, in any way, concern an exercise machine.

I certainly hope I am wrong but it appears to me both the fbi and ciao have become very political under Obama and his administration.

Well....There is a two tiered system of law and Reid is on the upper level tier.
