Scotland may look at 'serious and long-standing concerns about Trump's business activities'

Don’t dangle Twitter threads like this in front of me when my heart is already bursting with schadenfreude. Are you trying to kill me, Twitter? It’s too much! Quick, someone show me a Chachi tweet to bring me down! Or some Jon Voight gibberish. I can’t safely hold this much joy inside my fragile middle-aged man skin.

So, yeah, this is interesting …

What I know about money laundering is drawn almost entirely from Ozark and Office Space, so I won’t try to add too much to this. But here’s a little more detail from the Scotsman story McLaughlin linked to:

An UWO is a relatively new – and rarely used – power which has been designed to target suspected corrupt foreign officials who have potentially laundered stolen money through the UK.

The mechanism, introduced in 2018, is an attempt to force the owners of assets to disclose their wealth. If a suspected corrupt foreign official, or their family, cannot show a legitimate source for their riches, then authorities can apply to a court to seize the property.

Mr Trump and the Trump Organisation have always stressed that they did not require any outside financing for their Scottish resorts.

The 2024 election begins now, and our first order of business should be ensuring Trump can’t vie for another term. A mob boss can run his crime organization from jail, and Donald Trump managed to “run” the country from his toilet — but prison is another story.

And, man oh man, if Scotland seized his golf courses, I might have to start believing in God again.

One can dream, right?
