The name of gambling magnet Carl Icahn has been mentioned in Billy Walters trial in the second week of its submission in court. It is claimed that the suspect, Walters, had a conversation with Carl a few hours or days before actually purchased shares from Clorox back in 2011.
Why Is Carl Icahn Dragged To Walters Trial?
Because of this fresh twist, prosecutors now want the evidence be produced during the trial.
During the time it is alleged that Carl spoke to Walters 6 years ago, he had not been appointed the president’s adviser. In fact, Trump had not even mentioned that he would vie for American presidency.
However, many people can still confirm that Carl, who is the current president adviser, though not paid, is also a very close friend to Walters.
Although their friendship might have gone down for now, due to Carl’s new position, six years ago, when he made real money online casino gambling sites from his facilities, he would have talked to Walters.
The billionaire gaming investor is the owner of a gaming resort known as Tropicana Casino. He was also the owner of Trump Taj Mahal and another casino with the same brand name in Atlantic City. The two gaming facilities were however shuttered.
Walters has been accused of illegally acquiring a lot of money, a tune of $43 million from Dean Foods. According to evidence that has been produced in court, Walters took advantage of undue inside information that he got from Tom Davis, who during the time of the illegal business of stock market trade, was the company’s chairman.
It is said that Davis fed Walters unnecessary inside information for approximately 7 years. Walters exploited his friend by illegally acquiring the money.
It emerged recently that the former chairman is testifying against a former friend and confidant. Before he decided to testify against Walters, Davis admitted to have taken part in wire and securities fraud.
As part of the available evidence that has been deduced in court, it is alleged that after getting inside information from Davis, Walters also shared it with other friends in his list. Among those that it is alleged that Walters confined to, is Phil Mickelson, a renowned golfer.
Coincidentally, the golfer’s lawyers have said in behalf of their client that they are willing to testify if asked to do so.
On Monday, prosecutors hinted to Judge P Kevin that they are contemplating of introducing before the court, fresh evidence whose aim is to get a real picture of all the people that were involved in the illegal transactions.
