Trump’s Crooked Commerce Secy. Allegedly Swindled $120M From Investors, Failed To Pay Domestic Household Help

Wilbur Ross, who has an estimated net worth of $700 million, stole free artificial sweetener, didn’t pay his domestic staff, and pledged money to charity but never paid it, according to a damning new report which brands him as a serial grifter.

The US Commerce Secretary, who previously ran a private equity fund, is the subject of a bombshell report by Forbes that alleges that he swindled associates out of more than $120 million.  The report is based on lawsuits and interviews with 21 former colleagues.

The supposed swindling outlined in the report — including Ross’ trying to cut associates out of their share of money, taking money out of their accounts, and misleading investors — could rank Ross “among the biggest grifters in American history,” Forbes reporter Dan Alexander wrote.


There were some smaller allegations, too.
