I'm not convinced that ripping off a bunch of Trump-loving dummies of their hard-earned cash is a crime. Remember the old adage, "A fool and his money are soon parted"?

Steve Bannon: indicted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York on one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering.

Roger Stone: was convicted for lying to Congress about his communications related to document disclosure group Wikileaks, which released reams of Democratic officials’ emails late in the 2016 election. Stone was also charged with obstruction and witness tampering for threatening an associate, the comedian Randy Credico, in an effort to get him to corroborate his lies to Congress. His sentence was later commuted by Trump.

Michael Flynn: pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his talks with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak in the weeks before Trump took office.

Paul Manafort: was convicted in August 2018 of tax and banking crimes. He later pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges ahead of a second trial.

Rick Gates: was sentenced in late 2019 for conspiracy and making a false statement.

Michael Cohen: Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations related to his facilitation of hush money payments before the 2016 presidential election to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in exchange for their silence about their alleged affairs with Trump. The president has denied the alleged trysts. Later in 2018, Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about a proposed Trump Organization real estate project in Russia.

George Papadopoulos: plead guilty to lying to the FBI as part of the Mueller probe.

Donald J Trump: Impeached by the House of Representatives for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

The "law and order" president surrounds himself with only the best people.

God, I hope Jerry didn't blow his 401k on Mr. Bannon's wall...

They aren't even competent crooks. They all get caught and convicted.
