In Chinese culture, the line between a gift and a loan is very blurry, to the extent where there isn’t even really a distinction when it’s coming from your parents or your relatives.
This is what immigrants have always done. Jewish families did it. Irish families did it. Italian families did it. Chinese families do it.
The way that the law was read to is that under each charge, all of the different elements had to be met.
The Chinese has a saying. If you want a really hard, sharp steel, make a sword, you have to go through fire. This experience should make my daughters stronger, make them better person.
There are two types of mortgage fraud that generally occur. We call them fraud for profit and fraud for home. There are a certain number of people who commit the crime of mortgage fraud because they lie on their application to get a loan for the home that they want to live in.
Is it technically a crime? Absolutely. Is it a crime that is worth the resources of a State or Federal government? Absolutely not. These are low default rates on these types of loans. The losses are relatively minor.
The other types of fraud, fraud where there really was never any intention to pay the mortgage, it was just about reaping profit as quickly as possible, or fraud that went into these complex securities that were built, when the knowledge that there was little to no chance that these loans are going to get repaid, that’s where the resources need to go.
SummaryAdd a Summary
Washington (CNN)Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance on Wednesday defended his office's decision not to prosecute disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein or members of the Trump family.
He denied specifically that any donations to his campaign had or would ever influence his decisions. Weinstein was accused of sexual assault in 2015, and Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. were investigated earlier this decade for allegedly misleading real estate buyers.
Vance's office has faced criticism for accepting a $10,000 donation from David Boies, an attorney for Weinstein, in August 2015, according to campaign financial disclosure forms from the New York State Board of Elections. The donation came just months after Vance's office declined to press charges against Weinstein. Stephen Sigmund, a spokesman for Vance, said in a statement that Boies was not Weinstein's lawyer in that criminal case.
And a recently published report said a lawyer for the Trump family donated to Vance's re-election campaign shortly before his office dropped a fraud investigation.
