While the US Justice Department confirmed Monday they did not wiretap President Donald Trump’s phone while he resided in Trump Tower, Townhall.com is asking the question: Did gambling high rollers have their phones tapped there?

From Townhall.com:

Almost completely forgotten is what happened to Trump’s tenants in Apartments 63A and B, reportedly just below the president’s three-story penthouse in Trump Tower.

Vadim Trincher was indicted in April 2013, allegedly for helping to run an illicit betting ring for high rollers. Another 33 suspects, mainly from the former Soviet Union, were nabbed after an FBI dragnet discovered what then-U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, called “crimes including operating an illegal gambling business, money laundering, and extortion.”

Trincher, 52, was accused of running the international racketeering and gambling enterprise from his $5 million apartment at Trump Tower.

Trincher is a professional poker player who confessed to running the operation in 2013.

He copped a plea in November of that year, admitting he took bets on mostly soccer games from gamblers in both the US and in Europe.  Some of his clientele were billionaires.

Trincher has won just over $1.2 million on the live poker circuit, including over $730,000 at the Foxwoods Poker Classic / WPT Event Season 7 No Limit Hold’em Championship.

“From his apartment he oversaw what must have been the world’s largest sports book,” said Fischman. “He catered to millionaires and billionaires.”

An AP article last April reported that phone conversations were recorded between Trincher and his gambling clientele for several months.  He was even allegedly caught threatening violence against deadbeat clients.
