In a shocking turn of events, renowned sports gambler Billy Walters revealed that he believes casino mogul Steve Wynn actively lobbied former President Donald Trump against pardoning him. Walters, who was convicted of insider trading and received a presidential commutation in 2017, alleges that Wynn carried out a personal vendetta against him, going as far as to reach out to Trump directly. While the motivation behind Wynn’s alleged actions remains unclear, this revelation has sparked speculation about the extent of his influence over the former president and the justice system as a whole. As this controversy continues to unfold, it raises important questions about the relationship between powerful figures and their ability to manipulate the judicial process.
Billy Walters, the legendary sports bettor, claimed a long-running spat with Steve Wynn is the reason former President Donald Trump commuted his insider trading sentence rather than granting him a full pardon.
In his widely anticipated autobiography, “Gambler: Secrets from a Life at Risk,” Walters includes a chapter dubbed “Spinning Wynn’s Wheel,” containing details about their feud and its potential influence on his sentence.
Walters alleges that Wynn lobbied Trump against granting him a full pardon due to their personal animosity.
While the exact details of their dispute are not fully disclosed, Walters suggests that it dates back several years and involves a substantial amount of money.
However, it is important to note that these claims have not been independently verified, and Wynn has not publicly responded to Walters’ allegations.
