Is Trump Using Oprah’s Money To Pay $355 Million Fine?!

Is Donald Trump going to use Oprah Winfrey’s money to pay the $355 million fine for fraudulently overvaluing his properties?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the FACTS really are!

 

Claim : Trump Will Use Oprah’s Money To Pay $355 Million Fine!

On 20 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that Oprah Winfrey was just sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Truth : Trump Cannot Use Oprah’s Money To Pay $355 Million Fine!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Oprah Winfrey Was Not Arrested / Sentenced To Death

Let me just start by pointing out that Oprah Winfrey has not been arrested, or sentenced to death, for being an accessory to mass murder in the Maui inferno, or any other reason.

Oprah Winfrey is a mega celebrity, and one of the richest women in the world, with a net worth of $3.5 billion as of May 2023. If she was ever arrested, it would have been international news.

Yet, no legitimate media outlet, not even celebrity blogs, have reported that Oprah Winfrey was in any legal trouble, never mind arrested and/or sentenced to death!

We know this for sure because Oprah herself posted about her experience flying to NYC to take part in the photoshoot for the cover of the last issue of British Vogue, on 8 February 2024.

Could she have made it for the photoshoot, if she was supposedly arrested and jailed in Guantanamo Bay, before being courtmartialed, and sentenced to death???

Fact #2 : JAG Has No Powers Over Civilians

The claim that the US Navy JAG convicted Oprah Winfrey for being an accessory to mass murder in the 2023 Maui fire, and sentenced her to death, is absurd.

The Judge Advocate General’s Corps is the military justice branch of the American military. It has no powers or jurisdiction over civilians like Oprah Winfrey. The civilian justice system is separate from the military justice system. JAG officers can only prosecute US military service members.

Only in rare exceptions are JAG officers allowed to prosecute civilians. For example, if the civilian committed a crime on a military base, or while working in a foreign country and the local laws allow it. They can also prosecute civilians with special authority from the President, or Congress.

Fact #3 : JAG Cannot Confiscate Civilian Property

The claim that JAG can confiscate Oprah Winfrey’s assets is also laughable. As the military justice branch of the American military, JAG cannot confiscate civilian property.

Even if somehow permitted to do so under the Justice Department’s asset forfeiture program (2023 guidelines), it would require the minimum oversight of:

  • the Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) or investigative agent in charge of the administrative
    forfeiture matter (and, if applicable, the AUSA in charge of the related criminal matter);
  • investigative agents; and
  • appropriate USMS representatives.

In short, even in the MAGA / QAnon fantasy world where Oprah Winfrey’s assets were somehow confiscated, it would be under the oversight of the US Justice Department.

Fact #4 : Seized Assets Cannot Be Given To Trump

Even in the MAGA / Canon fantasy world where Oprah Winfrey was somehow sentenced to death, and had her assets seized, there is no reason why those assets should ever be given to Donald Trump!

The seized assets would belong to the US government, and can be used as it sees fit. And there is simply no reason why it should divert some of those seized asset to a private citizen, even if he is called Donald J. Trump.

The truth is there is no way Oprah Winfrey’s money is ever going to be used to pay Donald Trump’s massive fine for fraudulently overvaluing his properties!

Fact #5 : Donald Trump’s Assets May Be Seized!

Ironically, Donald Trump may have his own assets seized to pay for the massive $355 million fine, with another $100 million in pre-judgement interest!

On 21 February 2024, New York Attorney General Letitia James said that she is prepared to seize assets from Donald Trump if he is unable to find the cash to cover his civil fraud fine.

We are prepared to make sure that the judgment is paid to New Yorkers, and yes, I look at 40 Wall Street each and every day.

Fact #6 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:
