The Situation

Target In Federal Felony Investigation

The Situation
 is on the wrong end of a massive Federal criminal investigation -- which is currently focusing on the "Jersey Shore" star's cash flow ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us, Mike Sorrentino and his companies -- MPS Entertainment, Situation Productions, GTL Management, and his clothing line Situation Nation -- are at the center of the investigation. 

The exact nature of the crime is unclear, but we know it's a felony, and appears to be finance related. We're told subpoenas have already been issued to Sitch's business associates, asking for copies of payments issued to him, copies of canceled checks, correspondence, and more.

We reached out to Situation's rep for comment. So far, no word back.

Fist pump has a whole different meaning in prison.

Just another worthless POS like all the other reality show characters. They have to be the dumbest people on earth. I like how the legal system is using the shows and social media to gather evidence that leads to their prosecution. Dimwits .. dont' they read the news ??

Looks like they are on to his main source of cash flow, which might be the buying/selling of the stuff that put him in rehab.

If you caught him on the comedy roast a few yrs. back, you know he's not the brightest bulb. One of the actual comics had to go up to the mic & help him get through his set. He didn't even seem to understand the jokes they gave him well enough to deliver them right. & goodness forbid he try to adlib like alot of these insult comics do. That takes a little intelligence & well, the train left early on that one.

He is not WHITE...

Various ethnic groups native to Europe were not considered white at some point in U.S. history. Among those not considered white were the Slavs, Italians, Greeks and other Mediterraneans.

This report is a bit premature. "but we know it's a felony" is puffery at best.

This sounds like a much more serious matter than the usual new money dewsh who owes Uncle Sam some Cap Gains tax. You can bet the Sitch thought he was the Slick and could move money around and avoid taxes - and then covering that up WILL result in jail not just fines.

In short, that Lambo will be sold at auction and Sitch with be doing crunches in a federal prison. Gym (no tanning) and doing everyone's laundry like a bitch!
