Literally every member of the Trump administration is a criminal.

Of course the Trump cultists will continue to support this it ministration in exchange for the promise of a whiter America.

Ross has long history of dubious ties to Russian oligarchs and dirty money in Bank of Cyprus

Angry US Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross has been accused of swindling associates out of more than $120 million

https://www.businessinsider.com/wilb...-report-2018-8

Quote:
The report says Forbes spoke with 21 people who know Ross and found claims that he wrongly took millions of dollars for himself on multiple occasions. The publication estimated that if all the allegations were true, then Ross had bilked associates out of more than $120 million.

Donald Trump’s commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, is doing business with Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law through a shipping venture in Russia.

Leaked documents and public filings show Ross holds a stake in a shipping company, Navigator, through a chain of offshore investments. Navigator operates a lucrative partnership with Sibur, a Russian gas company part-owned by Kirill Shamalov, the husband of Putin’s daughter Katerina Tikhonova.
Looks like Trump only put the worst people he can think of in every position in his cabinet.

From the Forbes article:

"If even half of the accusations are legitimate, the current United States secretary of commerce could rank among the biggest grifters in American history."



Only the best people.

Gee, Trump surrounds himself with a bunch of crooks. Who'd a thought?

I guess Forbes is a MSM fake news outlet now.

Exactly, he’s been highly effective on trade and taking on unfair Chinese trade practices. Many special interests groups want him out.

You must have missed the part about the story being broken by Forbes Magazine, a conservative leaning pro-business publication. Not exactly Mother Jones. Let's see if Ross is shrewd enough to stay out of prison.
