The Scottish Parliament will vote this week to launch a full investigation into Donald Trump's finances and properties.
The Scot said: “An opposition debate in the Scottish Parliament sets out the arguments that Ministers will bring to the Court of Session in response to growing concerns about the takeover of the former US President's stake in Scotland. While the subject has been discussed three times at Holyrood in the past 12 months, the debate ahead is significant. A MSP vote asking ministers to find a UWO would not be binding, but would significantly increase the pressure on First Minister Nicola Sturgeon to act in accordance with Holyrood's will. "
Scotland is further than any publicly known federal government investigation into Trump's finances. At the state and local levels, both New York State and Manhattan are deeply involved in research into Trump's financial operations.
The Scots have made it known that they want to get rid of Trump and get his business out of their country. Trump has a big problem in Scotland. If a federal investigation is opened there is no telling what they will find, but once the dominoes begin to fall, other nations will start their own investigation into the Trump Organization.
Trump and his house of cards, built on fraud, both appear to be on loan.
Without the presidency to hide behind, nothing prevents Donald Trump and his family from being prosecuted.
