Donald Trump FBI Informant? We all love a good conspiracy theory and this one from Quodverum.com is among the best. In the early 1980s, the Five Families of Mafia legend ran New York. They controlled the unions, judges and politicians. They put their own brand of tax on legitimate business and all real estate projects could only proceed if their palms were appropriately greased.
They — along with the Philly mob — also had their tentacles wrapped tightly around New Jersey, especially when gambling was made legal in Atlantic City. Bruce Springsteen even wrote a song about it.
Breaking this hold was a major goal of the Reagan Administration.
In 1983, Rudy Giuliani took a “demotion” from associate attorney general to become U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. He led a crusade against the Five Families and gutted them. Three bosses got 100 year prison sentences and another was whacked with his underboss.
Rudy stepped down in 1989 and John Gotti stepped up to run the Gambino family. The Teflon Don may have been the last New York big-time mafioso. Who took him down in 1991? Robert Mueller. Who was among those working with Mueller? Rod Rosenstein. Who was the U.S. Attorney General overseeing it all? William Barr.
Of course, this long association of prosecutors is not what makes this conspiracy theory so good.
What makes the conspiracy theory good is that Donald Trump appears to have been working them. While Willard Rouse generally gets credit for taking down the vile Little Nicky Scarfo — this site ranks him #2 on most brutal mobsters — FBI files released last October point to a source in Atlantic City, suspected to be our now president, as being just as instrumental.
The involvement of this fellowship from the East Coast mafia takedown does add a new perspective on the just concluded Mueller investigation. Was it really a honeytrap? If so, who were the cockroaches it was designed to catch?
