The ruling by the judge said “from Donald J.Trump’s personal funds.”  

She is very attuned to the grift.

An army of Trump lawyers are parsing the words “personal funds” and looking for loopholes.

Win dinner with me, Trump teases – but is it just another scam?

Nothing to see here. Just the WH openly selling access to the President through contributions. Normally, you need to join Mar-a-Lago to eavesdrop on discussions of international import or secure an Ambassadorship. Now, you can just donate and sit down with the POTUS to a meal of hamberders and covfefe.

Of course, if it truly is a scam, that is even more reprehensible.

"They shouldn't be having public hearings. This is a hoax. This is just like the Russian witch hunt," Trump said.

 

 

Wasn't that long ago he and the Faithful were screaming about the meetings NOT being public.

And, they are not even cognizant of the disconnect in holding the two opposing positions.

Trump is considering attending  May Day parade as Putin’s guest.  NOT MAKING THiS UP!

Presumably to get ideas for his poorly attended July 4th MAGA festivities and of course to get marching orders for the 2020 election (see what I did there?).  Transcripts will NOT be available, but it will be a perfect conversation.

Hopefully Pooty sends him home afterward with a nicely gift packed Polonium Tea.

The idiot has little left to offer after fucking worldwide international relations, the military- remember the Kurds -oh so last week and the American political system-since when did someone subpoenaed to answer questions in front of a congressional committee get the option to ignore the subpoena.

Let’s not forget the CIA, FBI the Barred Justice Dept.

The Trump touch- everything he touches turns to shit.

But Pooty wants to thank him and show him a real dictators parade.

Perhaps the rabid faithful might actually think hey wait a minute.......

I know, I know “think” is a stretch.

It's starting to look like a Terrible, no a horrible and even a dreadful lousy week for Donald Trump.

ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, along with cable news CNN, FOX, MSNBC, CSPAN, plus the BBC, will all set aside daily programming to cover the House Impeachment Inquiry. Either Donald Trump melts down, or somewhere or someplace someone is going to be part of a huge distraction. :)

Trump tweets he will release ‘financial statement’ before 2020 presidential election

Quote

U.S. President Donald Trump, facing lawsuits and political demands to release his U.S. tax returns and other financial information, said on Thursday he will release a statement on his finances before the presidential election, and asserted that it was his call on providing the information.

“I’m clean, and when I release my financial statement (my decision) sometime prior to election, it will only show one thing – that I am much richer than people even thought – And that is a good thing,” Trump said in a post on Twitter, providing no details on his claims of wealth.

Trump also said Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s two-year investigation into Russian interference in elections, which most recently led to the criminal conviction of Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone, showed that his finances were in order.

Mueller “went over all of my financials, & my taxes, and found nothing. Now the Witch Hunt continues with local New York Democrat prosecutors going over every financial deal I have ever done. This has never happened to President before. What they are doing is not legal,” Trump wrote.

Trump, an international hotelier and former reality TV star, is the first major-party presidential candidate since Gerald Ford in 1976 not to release his tax returns.

 

Last week a federal judge dismissed New York’s attorney general and state tax commissioner as defendants in Trump’s lawsuit seeking to block a congressional committee from obtaining his New York state tax returns. New York passed a law earlier this year that would allow the committee to access Trump’s state tax returns.

Meanwhile, an appeals court in New York has ruled that Trump’s long-time accounting firm must hand over eight years of his tax returns to New York prosecutors.

Anyone believe him?

Anyone think if he does release something it won't rise to the top of the Fiction Best-Sellers?

Just another Trump pedophile. The worst thing about this story is the silence from the religious right.

STORY: George Nader, a onetime informal adviser to the Trump campaign who is charged with bringing a 14-year-old Czech boy to the United States for sex, failed to persuade a federal judge that the crime is too old to prosecute.

NEW: The Trump campaign's onetime informal adviser & key witness for the Mueller probe, George Aref Nader, lost his motion to dismiss a count of transporting a minor for sex, per a ruling from Judge Leonie Brinkema at EDVA.

From the first

Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz called for a primary of Georgia’s Republican Gov. Brian Kemp because he isn’t planning to appoint a candidate President Donald Trump wanted tapped for the Senate.

Gaetz went after Kemp following a report that said the governor is expected to tap business executive Kelly Loeffler for appointment to Sen. Johnny Isakson’s seat following his retirement at the end of this year. Trump had been pushing for the appointment of Rep. Doug Collins, a staunch ally of the president like Gaetz.

““The establishment” is who @realDonaldTrump helped u beat in the primary when you were down double digits,” Gaetz said, attacking Loeffler because she was a Mitt Romney donor.

From the second

Twitter user Ryan Matthew Mahoney, who identifies himself as #TeamKemp in his profile, blasted Gaetz.

 

 

“Self-serving politicians who wear tight, acid-washed jean shorts and cowardly hide behind their keyboard can’t cut it in South Georgia,” Mahoney charged.

Gaetz took time out from his Thanksgiving holiday to respond.

“I adamantly deny wearing jean shorts or anything acid-washed after 1998, but that isn’t the real point,” Gaetz wrote.

“I do own some jeans on the tighter side, which is nothing to be ashamed about,” he added.

I want to point out that Gaetz is an FSU grad....

Millions could lose access to food stamps under Trump proposal, study finds

This administration continues to set new lows. Billions to the rich and take food from the poor. Slimy fuckers.

Quote

Millions of Americans face losing access to food assistance under proposed rule changes by the Trump administration, a new analysis has found.

The changes, if they had been instituted last year, would have resulted in 3.7 million fewer people and 2.1m fewer households receiving the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as Snap or food stamps, during an average month, according to the study.

The altered rules would also reduce benefits received by many people, with 2.2m households set to have their average monthly assistance cut by $127. Nearly one million students would lose access to free or discounted lunches.

The analysis, by the not-for-profit Urban Institute, said that three planned changes to Snap would “significantly alter” food-based help provided to poor Americans, with disparities across the country in terms of impact. Benefits would be cut in most states, although states including Vermont, New York, Nevada and Connecticut would fare particularly badly.

The Urban Institute said Snap had a “proven track record of reducing both poverty and food insecurity”.

The US Department of Agriculture, which oversees the Snap program, has put forward new rules that would create stricter work requirements to be eligible for Snap and cap deductions for utility allowances. The third change would restrict the way 40 states automatically provide Snap to families once they get other types of federal assistance.

Sonny Perdue, the US agriculture secretary, wrote in a USA Today op-ed that the Trump administration was “taking steps to restore integrity to Snap and move people toward self-sufficiency”.

The rule changes, Perdue wrote, restore “the dignity of work to a sizable segment of our population, while it is also respectful of the taxpayers who fund the program”.
