Investment fund CEO sentenced to 7 years for having sex with a 15 year old girl. But there is much more behind this story... Municipal bonds, private investing, SEC issues...
This is Stephen Bradley Mell's 3rd guilty plea in the last 6 months. Child porn in Dec. 2018, sex crimes in May & state child endangerment charges in June. The girl's mother allegedly approached Mell to ask him to give the girl flying lessons only to have him target her daughter.
This is where it gets interesting, Mell is supposedly depressed over a 2012 helicopter crash in which his friends were killed in his chopper.
He also started a charity to provide free flights for sick children. Was this a predators targeting effort?
I'm not a believer in various theories about helicopter crashes & such. Helicopters barely fly on the best of days & circumstances.
The facts documented after a crash often reveal some interesting connections from people who can afford helicopters! Like Mell's 2 helicopter LLCs
One was ACS Helicopters LLC, a charter service and the other was Aero Care Services LLC basically using the same initials to keep the transactions confusing. kathrynsreport.com/2012/10/bell-4…
A pilot not trained to fly on instruments in a helicopter that was also not rated for instrument flying trying to fly at night, in the fog & rain in the mountains is an accident waiting to happen.
But I do find Bradley Mell's friends on the helicopter very interesting.
The survivor Stephen Barral worked for both of Mell's two primary entities W.H. Mell & as a Managing Member of Gulfstream Capital Management.
The passenger who was killed was even more interesting...
Tighe Sullivan founded WCAS Fraser Sullivan investment firm. Before that he worked for Deutsche Bank selling high yield investments. All back before the financial collapse in 2008...
Sullivan & Barral were frat brothers at Colgate & worked on Wall Street together at Chase Manhattan Bank that later bought JP Morgan & other banks.
Sullivan was in the process of opening a US unit of 3i Group Plc, the UK's oldest private-equity firm. I'm sure his experience covering "a lot of big accounts" at Duestche Bank was a major selling point...
Mell's company appears to have shutdown since his arrest, a firm started by his father almost 50 years ago. Usually firms survive the arrest of a CEO or owner for non-business related crimes. Unless there is more...
Their business was running hedge funds of state & municipal bonds for private investors. Very Swampy territory. Bonds held by Bank of New York Mellon. Of course W.H. Mell passed their audits but we know the best financial crimes are designed to pass audits.sec.gov/Archives/edgar…
Bradley Mell also runs a subsidiary Gulfstream Capital Management, LLC & probably a host of other LLCs being used to conduct different investment opportunities. This report identifies disciplinary action by Financial Industry Regulatory Authority
or FINRA lexissecuritiesmosaic.com/resourcecenter…
It seems they were caught in 2007 failing to properly report trades in a timely manner. This is often done to camouflage a variety of information, which is why the requirements exist to document & report trades.
SO basically, he owns the assets in Gulfstream Opportunity Fund gets paid to run the fund, pays himself to give the fund advice as Gulfstream CM, then pays himself as W.H. Mell to make the trades. Which may or may not get recorded properly...
Seems like lots of opportunity for playing around with the assets, transactions & other peoples' money! I wonder how much pressure he faces to flip on a lot of Swampy people? A simple sexual abuse case, but it connects to so much more...
The Bank of New York which was involved in a $7B Russian #MoneyLaundering operation in the 1990s. This is likely connected to the efforts of Marc Rich as he helped Russian oligarchs loot the former Soviet Union for fun & profit. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bank_…
At the same time Republic Bank of New York was also laundering billions to the Russians. It is likely that President Clinton's pardon of Marc Rich prevented some of the criminal prosecutions in these cases. But there were many ways to block those cases.
Documents declassified by the Trump Admin in 2018 show that Clinton & Yeltsin worked together to minimize the political impact of that FBI investigation. In an effort to ensure that Gore & Putin were elected in 2000 to continue their Russian collusion.
Please take the time to read this thread as it shows the negotiations between Clinton & Yeltsin, where Yeltsin wanted the US to hand over Europe to the Russians. It also documents the Clinton Tony Blair efforts to rig the Russian election for Putin.
Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, who created the #dodgydossier on WMDs, helped John Brennan's friends set up the #1MDB money laundering scam & major Swamp player on a global level. #ButNothingsHappening
