With 11 days to go before Election Day, the FBI’s announcement Friday that the bureau is reopening its investigation into Hillary Clintons use of a private email server while Secretary of State may be 2016s October surprise, inflaming an already scorched race.

.

But nobody should confuse Clintons unfortunate use of a private email system in which a handful of classified messages seeped into the tens of thousands sent and received with Donald Trumps lifetime of borderline criminality, as evidenced by being sued more than 4,500 times for his business practices, his extensive bilking of small businesses, his deliberate tax evasions, and his on-camera boasts of sexual assaults.

.

Fridays disclosure by FBI director James Comey, a Republican appointed by President Obama three years ago, will raise more questions than can be answered before Election Day. Others will parse the politics, noting the unnerving development serves the Trump-Republican National Committee strategy of suppressing voter turnout. A Bloomberg profile this week, quoting top Trump staffers, described this as the campaigns only path to victory because Trump is stuck in the low 40s in polls.

.

Whats lost in the media frenzy over the FBI investigation is that Clintons mishandling of several dozen emails simply cannot be compared to Trumps outrageous history of bending or breaking the law, and getting away with it.

.

Trump launched his campaign with fraud, as the Trump Tower crowd that interrupted him 43 times with applause on June 16, 2015, consisted of actors paid fifty bucks apiece, David Cay Johnston, an investigative reporter who has covered Trump since the 1980s and is the author of The Making of Donald Trump, wrote earlier this week. For his whole life, Trump has cheated workers, shortchanges small business owners and ripped off investors, as courts have determined in some of the 4,500 Trump lawsuits.

.

Here are 10 examples of Trumps borderline or admitted criminality, all taken from The Making of Donald Trump, a book with 44 pages of source notes, and subsequent articles and interviews with Johnston.

.

[This is the list of items with details in the article whose link appeara above]

.

Boasts of sexually assaulting women.

Used illegal immigrants and mob to build Trump Tower.

Caught Illegally not paying sales taxes.

More evidence of federal income tax fraud. In what can only be described as a bizarre series of events, Trumps lawyer and accountant Jack Mitnick testified under oath that while he signed Trumps 1984 federal tax return, neither he nor his firm had prepared it. That same return showed $0 business consulting income and more than $600,000 of expenses for which no receipts were produced, also strong evidence of fraud, Johnston wrote. During the presidential campaign, Trump has refused to release his taxes, saying he is being audited by the IRS, but [he] will not even release the form letter proving an audit.

Claiming $916 million in tax losses, but not paying bills.

Trump University was another massive con job. To start, Trump broke the laws of several states that only allowed an authorized institution to be called a university. Then Trump lied when he said he would personally pick the faculty, but when deposed under oath after being sued, admitted he had no idea who the faculty were. Johnston wrote, His faculty stood over students helping them take on all the credit card debt banks would give them to pay tuition and other fees to Trump U., leaving them with no capacity to invest in real estate.

Paying off prosecutors via political donations to avoid charges.

Using his foundation for other illegal expenses.

A lifetime of hiding behind secret settlements when sued.

Doing business with other known criminals. Over his career, Trump has done business with people with serious criminal records. Some were involved in deals, like a violent convicted felon and swindler, named Felix Sater, who was helping Trump make two major development deals in Denver a decade ago, Johnston wrote. Trump wildly overpaid two mob hitmen known as The Young Executioners for a tiny plot of New Jersey land, he said in another example.

Then there’s convicted drug smuggler Joseph Weichselbaum, whose helicopter service flew gamblers to Trumps New Jersey casino, a business relationship that put his casino license at risk. When Weichselbaum, who also lived at Trump Towers, faced additional charges, Trump wrote to the judge seeking leniency. After New Jersey regulators discovered the letter, which Trump initially denied writing, they investigated but did not raise deeper issues about Trumps fitness to hold a license, Johnston wrote.

The Latest Clinton Media Frenzy

.

Nobody needs to be reminded that the same national press that helped create Trump the candidatebecause he was willing to feed them a new inflammatory remark every dayis now in a frenzy over the latest development in the Clinton email saga.

.

Obviously, Hillary Clinton should have never used a private email server while Secretary of State, especially if she knew shed be running for president again. But that blind spot, and the few confidential emails that slipped through the tens of thousands of other messages, doesnt bend or break the law on comparable grounds to Trumps lifelong record of flouting rules and breaking laws, and in many cases, bragging about it.
