Trump halts COVID-19 relief talks until after election | WTOP
What a dick.
Did anyone else see the dungfly feasting on the pile of shit during the vice presidential debate?
And the House of Cards comes tumbling down
Well, at least he didn’t push a reporter into an oncoming train.
The Press Found Two More Trump Financial Crimes Today — New York Magazine
Trump has been quite busy "beating off."
The Swamp That Trump Built
Drain the Swamp
He is the swamp.
I'd say that he's the Swamp-Thing...but that's a benevolent entity...a good guy.
T is not good or caring.
Only corrupt...eating away at our foundations.
May even be called malicious...
He harmed citizens for a photo-op
He's cozying up to racists.
...too many to list
The swamp is burning
The nine major lawsuits Trump will be facing after being dragged out of the White House
I’ve got one question
Methinks the American Bar Association will appreciate all the caught dues he will supply.
Might create several new firms after it’s done
Tax cases can be dragged out forever by people who have the money to make it happen. The value of Conman Trump's real estate holdings can be debated, but the general consensus is he has around 200M, +/- a bit, in cash and liquid assets. Which means he could be long gone in the permanent sense while the various tax agencies are still trying to figure out his taxes.
These days, it's not the law or ethics that matter, but who ya know and what they want.
DOJ plus other exec depts, won't push going after him while he's in control. NY can only go so far...again, connection.
Now...if he loses, and he's out mid January...then Biden and his staff is in.
They may opt to normalize and keep it quiet like Ford did with Nixon.
IF they decide to go after him, he's done...doesn't matter how much he lawyers up...he's got way too many holes.
But it really depends on the will.
Very true. The authorities have to want to nail Conman.
And this where Conman's ego could get him into trouble. Biden's team might be willing to let Conman fade away rather than keeping him in the news, but would Conman be able to fade away? I'm guessing he wouldn't even though keeping quiet would be in his best interests. He couldn't stop himself from kicking Biden to the point of seriously pissing him off.
It wouldn't necessarily be Biden personally, so to say. A neutral It's Your Decision could be all the encouragement the agencies and authorities need.
I hope they drive Conman broke with lawsuits. Prison would be great, but Conman might not be around long enough to serve.
Conman Trump reversed his decision to withhold disaster funds from going to California (this news is a few days old).
The presidential election is nearly here.
California has how many Electoral College votes?
The attempted vote purchase (more like an extortion attempt) should fail; hopefully the political damage has already been done.
It's not Cali that he would have to worry about, that's lost to him.
It's the people in other states watching, thinking "Is my state next in an emergency??" (would he hold up funds for whim or agenda? Well, yes...but he just showed it to them)
People vote for security and stability.
Uhh oh, looks like the bug trap caught something again...
Trump Records Shed New Light on Chinese Business Pursuits
Talk about another October surprise
Makes ya wonder what the NYT will find next.
Frankly, I don’t mind bank accounts in other nations
It would happen to most international players
But you have to declare it...
And the optics look terrible.
Especially since he’s been hammering China
And he’s been trying to say Biden is soft on them.
Reset the clock...
Til another T “oops”
Conman's taxes are (very intentionally) complicated, but it certainly appears that he paid, at the very least indirectly, more taxes to the Chinese government than he did to the US government during 2013-2015.
Now where is the money Conman borrows coming from?
Just for example, no claim of factual information:
For most people a figure such as $500,000,000.00 is a lot of money. In international business, and politics, that could be considered a bargain price to own a piece of the POTUS.
We’re Going to Need a Truth and Reconciliation Commission to Recover From Trump
Ok. TFP poll...
IF Biden wins...should he allow things to go quiet and let people off, like Ford and Obama did.
Or should he get an investigation going (done by EXPERTS not politicians) and prosecute where needed??? (including Mr. T)
You have to ask?
If Conman was essentially clueless and made some relatively innocent relatively harmless mistakes, let him slide.
But Trump is a conman who knows exactly what sneaky shit he pulls. Nail him and his puppets.
Separate names with a comma.
