It’s poetic that this story on Gateway Pundit Jacob Wohl, “a disgraced hedge fund manager turned pro-Trump conspiracy theorist,” in the words of NBC News would break on the same day as the story on Donald Trump Jr. slandering Joe Biden on fake sexual assault claims against children. This is the face of the opposition party these days, and the level to which the GOP has fallen.
Wohl had his first fifteen minutes of fame in December, 2018 when he offered a woman $20,000 to perjure herself and claim that Robert Mueller had sexually assaulted her in 2010. What distinguished the allegation was not so much it’s implausibility as the completely idiotic way in which it was handled by a firm called “Surefire Intelligence.” Wohl denied having any ties to Surefire Intelligence, but was inconveniently outed when it was discovered that the phone number on the website “went to a voicemail message which provided another phone number listed in public records as belonging to Wohl’s mother.”
Additionally, “Their ‘Tel Aviv Station Chief’ uses a photograph of Israeli supermodel Bar Refaeli,” Belligncat reveals. “The ‘Deputy Director of Operations’ at SureFire is also fake, unless he moonlights as a minister from Michigan.”
Oh yes, Wohl was quite the toast of Twitter that night. Today, however, he’s gotten himself involved in a lot more serious mess, that of securities fraud. There must be something in the water these days, there’s a lot of that going around. The New Civil Rights Movement:
On November 7, 2017, the Arizona Corporation Commission (AZCC), a state government group that enforces ethical trading practices, ruled that Wohl basically lied to investors to get them to invest $155,000 in his company, the Wohl Capital Investment Group LLC.
In addition to lying about his experience and his company’s investments, Wolh allegedly misrepresented the financial risks, promising his investors 80 percent of their money back but only returning about 50 percent later on. One of his investors later killed himself, according to Wohl’s arrest warrant. […]
The AZCC told Wohl to immediately cease-and-desist his sale of unregistered securities and required him to pay $37,918.72 back to his investors. He was expected to pay $16,459.36 immediately and to pay the rest in monthly installments of $1,788.28 with payments starting in October 2017.
As of Nov. 2018, Wohl has not made any payments, an AZCC spokeswoman told the Arizona Republic. That’s unsurprising seeing as Wohl called the Arizona Corporation Commission a “racketeering organization full of Angry Democrats” in June 2018.
Worse for Wohl, “The Attorney General’s office has engaged California counsel to assist in collections efforts. Those lawyers are utilizing all statutorily allowed collection methods to obtain the funds owed to the state.” That may be bad news because California issued Wohl a felony warrant in September 2019 for allegedly committing the same crimes in 2016.
This is the profile of just one more of the “best people” that Trump brings around himself, and it’s a no brainer as to why. Trump represents utter lawlessness. He is the crook’s crook.
