EXCLUSIVE: A previously unknown company owned by Rudy Giuliani got taxpayer-backed PPP money through a small bank tied to the Trumps and Kushners. Experts tell me it could be fraud.

I saw Mr Giuliani on the NYC news last evening. He was trying to act as the mayor of New York City again.

It would have been humorous if he had looked like a well person.

This is simple. Rudy G. has people in his employ. They are actually employed by WorldCaptial, and leased to Rudy's other companies. For tax purposes, this is of benefit to Rudy, as company owner and employer. The problem comes in the bending of rules and in the appearance of a FORMER UNITED STATES PROSECUTOR conducting business in this manner.

I'll wager that soon enough the PPP bucks will be repaid in full, rather than Rudy subjecting himself to an early-morning perp walk and the "Attica...Attica...Attica" chant. Remember, Trump cannot pardon this shill for state charges, and I'm confident more than one local DA has a ------ to get this creep...

He might not have to repay it at all since Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin says that the government is going to automatically, without even an audit, forgive ALL PPP loans under a certain amount. Wanna bet that Rudy's loan will just barely make the cut?

Lock him up! When all is said and done for the Drumpf Regime, they're going to need their own wing in a federal prison!

On a slightly side note, this just in:

SDNY prosecutors say a grand jury has returned a superseding indictment with additional counts in the case against former Rudy Giuliani associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman

I'm willing to bet if you run down a list of Trump's inner orbit you'll find most if not all have at least one if not several small companies that got PPP cash. It was set up as a giant giveaway to big donors with some easy skim on top for the insiders.
