Your latest issue of GreenFuse featured a piece titled "Muir Report: Mob Psychosis for the Masses". It contained a threat toward our President in this line "...the same fate that befell Joey Gallo and John Gotti will happen to Trump." I am calling on you as a citizen to immediately retract this article and to apologize. This is very serious. Thank you, R.D. Fierro Eureka, CA
Reply: Thank you for your concern. However the piece you mention is satirical- using the metaphor of gangsters to describe political alliances and motivations. The fate that befell the mob bosses mentioned was that they lost their power and control over their families criminal operations- A statement of fact, not a threat- used here as a speculative prediction. While it is true, due to his involvement in the politics of gangster loyalties and their vendettas that Joey Gallo was killed, John Gotti was convicted of racketeering and died in prison.
Ironically in 1974 Gotti, not yet know as the 'Teflon Don,' was able to strike a plea bargain and received a 4 year sentence for for attempted manslaughter with the help of attorney Roy Cohn- Donald Trump’s Former attorney and Mentor. I will forward your comments to the author
