Shalom Weiss Flies to Florida to thank Trump for pardoning him


Shalom Weiss on Left
Shalom Weiss who was found guilty of 79 counts of racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering was sentenced 835 years imprisonment (reduced from the original 845 years) three years supervised release, $123.4 million fine, $125 million restitution and 57 million forfeitures.

 This sentence was believed to be the longest prison term ever imposed in a US federal court and the longest ever for a white-collar crime. Weiss fled the country during jury deliberations in October 1999, and was extradited from Austria in 2002.

President Trump commuted his sentence on January 19, 2021.

Shalom Weiss flew to Florida to thank him and presented Trump with a  beautiful painting depicting Trump at the Kotel. The painting was painted by Weiss's daughter who is a known artist.

What? No Thanks-To-Hashem for facilitating the springing of this loathesome thief Shalom Weiss who was found guilty of 79 counts of $125 million racketeering, wire fraud, and money laundering?

הקב"ה help us from such "zadiks" said...

We have long had a concept of ימא טבא לרבנן.

Now, thanks to people like Moishe Margaretten, there are ימא טבא לגנבי, holidays for גנבים.

Your just miserable,who do you think the tzadik,reb Moshe Leib of sassov sprung out of prison with his pidyon shvuaim ?
This is the only mitzvah you sell a Sefer torah! Where you aware? Never ever judge your fellow brother or sister!

When Weiss was captured by Interpol at a Vienna hotel, he was a completely OTD chazir fressing mechalel Shabbos who was messing around with shiksos. He told the judge he is no longer frum & was already not frum when he started ganvening.

What is his current religious status?

Hasidic growth industry said...

One thing that unites different Hasidic sects. Getting Hasidic swindlers and other crooks out of jail. Lubavitch works with Satmar, Skver, etc.

Did you see how much Moishie Margaretten just raised in his fundraiser?

FYI said...

"This is the only mitzvah you sell a Sefer torah!"

You are misunderstanding and distorting what pidyon shvuyim means. Which is a big aveirah, מגלה פנים בתורה שלא כהלכה.

A genuine crook should remain in jail. OTOH, if someone is innocent and wrongly convicted that is pidyon shvuyim.
