Mob Wives star Karen Gravano has been trying everything she can to get her father, Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano out of jail. Right now, Sammy’s prison sentence is up in 2019. He is serving his 20-year sentence he received in 2002 for being found guilty of organizing an Ecstasy ring in Arizona. The reality TV star hopes that Donald Trump becomes president in November, because she believes he is her last chance to get her father out of jail.
“All I can say is maybe he can give his old friend Sammy an f—in’ pardon,” Karen told the New Daily News.
Karen claims that mob rat Sammy Gravano is a close friend of Donald Trump. Donald Trump has been doing business for many years in New York City, so naturally he must have run into former underboss Sammy Gravano at some point, right?
Even though Karen Gravano claimed that Donald and her father, Sammy, were well acquainted, the presidential hopeful was quick to deny any connection to the former Gambino family underboss. Trump argued that he may have met him in passing, however, he can’t recall ever formally meeting him or working with him on any project. Trump clarified that he may have worked with him before, but he just can’t remember everyone he encountered decades ago.
“I don’t know Sammy Gravano and to my knowledge I have never met him,” Trump said in a prior statement to the press.
Not only is Trump accused of knowing Gravano, but according to the National Memo, they worked together in a construction racketeering ring. Of course, Trump has adamantly denied ever working with the former mobster, claiming their meeting may have “slipped his mind.” How can a meeting with a mobster just slip your mind? Sammy the Bull seems like the type that leaves quite the impression.
The New York Times broke a story about a top Bayrock executive, Felix Sater (aka Satter). Sater had gone to prison for plunging the stem of a wine glass into a commodity broker’s face in a bar fight. He’d also narrowly averted jail a second time when he was named an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive federal fraud case in 2000. Sater cooperated in this probe of a $40 million stock swindle, which resulted in 19 guilty pleas and the conviction of six mobsters—including the nephew of Carmine “the Snake” Persico and the brother-in-law of Sammy “the Bull” Gravano.
At one time, Gravano was the Gambino crime family’s underboss until he turned states evidence and was responsible for the police apprehending dozens of criminals in the 1990s. In exchange for his testimony, Gravano got away with over 19 murders and other criminal offenses. He was the reason the federal government was able to arrest and convict mob boss John Gotti.
Karen Gravano believes that if Donald Trump is elected president in November, her father has a good chance for a pardon. As Karen’s fans have witnessed, she has worked very hard to find a way to have her dad released from jail, only to run into dead end after dead end. Karen explained that Trump is her last chance, and if it doesn’t work out, Gravano fears that her father will have to wait out until his sentence concludes in three years.
Gravano explained that three years is an eternity in prison, and she just wants her father home to spend the rest of his life surrounded by family. Gravano is 70-years-old now, and Karen worries that if she doesn’t get him out soon, he could die in prison.
She noted, “He doesn’t deserve that!”

Do you think Sammy the Bull was a business associate of Donald Trump? Do you think Trump would pardon Gravano, which would allow him to be released three years early? Don’t forget to come back to the Inquisitr later for more news and updates!
