Help George Lakoff Fight A Lawsuit By Donating to This GoFundMe

Help George Lakoff fight a libel and slander lawsuit related to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting by donating to a GoFundMe for his legal defense.


During a January 3, 2018 appearance on MSNBC, Lakoff said the following about Georgian-American businessman Ike Kaveladze (this quote comes from a Washington Post story linked below):


Right now, President Trump is in a noose. It’s the money laundering noose that’s tightening around his neck. It shows up not just in Bannon’s point about money laundering and also in the Fusion [GPS] point about money laundering in the New York Times op-ed today, but also in the fact that the main money launderer, Ike Kaveladze, was at the Trump Junior meeting in Trump Tower. He’s the eighth man there.

He is the major person who has been responsible for money laundering from Russia and other post-Soviet countries. And in addition, he set up over 2,000, you know, phony shell corporations with bank accounts and helped use that money in the bank accounts for the people doing the money laundering from Russia to get luxury apartments and luxury condos. The fact that he was invited by Trump Junior to that meeting indicates that Trump Junior knew him well.


Kaveladze has brought suit against Lakoff over this.


Lakoff is a good guy, a smart guy, and a hero in the eyes of us at OTYCD. Please consider donating to a GoFundMe for his legal defense.


As of February 11, 2018, it had raised more than $22,000 toward its goal of $150,000.
