See here (not sure how this plays out syntactically and diagrams out structurally...you have the ",but" and then the "and a lot...legal"):

It’s important to understand that there are very fine lines—Donald has laundered money, but a lot of people have laundered money all over the United States and a lot of that laundering is actually legal.

Hi, Andrew—Gustavo has made a very interesting point related to the content, and that may make you want to revise the sentence as a whole. I'd just like to point out that you have neglected to use a comma before the bold piece of your sentence, which is the fourth sentence (independent clause) in your sentence:

  • "It's important to understand that there are very fine lines."
  • "Donald has laundered money."
  • "A lot of people have laundered money all over the United States."
  • "A lot of that laundering is actually legal."
