Now Donald Trump Is Accused Of Tax Fraud In Mexico


On Friday, an official with the Mexican government filed a federal criminal tax fraud complaint against GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump in Tijuana, Mexico, related to Trump Ocean Resort, a project that folded in 2009, according to The Hill.

Jaime Martínez Veloz, a former member of Mexico’s Congress who is now a mid-level official with the Mexican federal government, also sent a letter to the mayor of Tijuana, asking city hall to determine if any local regulations were violated by the failed development.

Martínez filed the criminal complaint as a private citizen. Under the Mexican legal system, private criminal complaints are filed directly to prosecutors, not to the police.

In the letter, Martínez said he’d filed a complaint seeking for federal charges against the GOP presidential nominee so that “once legal requirements demanded by national laws are gathered, the corresponding legal action can be executed,” reported La Jornada newspaper.

Buyers of the condo were left feeling betrayed.

It featured Trump, shown smiling in a French gold-leaf chair, telling readers that no words or pictures “can possibly describe what is about to take shape here, but it is certainly going to be the most spectacular place in all of Mexico.”

In the end, nothing at all was built at Trump Ocean Resort, and Simms lost her money. As did about 250 other buyers, most of them from Southern California.

The complaint states that Trump’s development avoided paying taxes in Mexico on pre-development sales. Those sales reportedly totaled more than $32.5 million.

Martínez further stated in the complaint, “by Mr. Donald Trump against the Mexican state because beyond defrauding investors he also committed fraud by not paying taxes in Mexico for the mercantile operations he took part in.”

During the past three decades, Trump has been involved in over 4,00 lawsuits. Donald has 75 ongoing legal battles going at the moment. This is unprecedented for a presidential candidate. But look over there, because FBI director James Comey sent a vague and bizarre letter to Congress!

This is the strangest presidential election cycle ever.
