    "Brookfield Properties, a publicly traded company that counts the Qatar Investment Authority as a major investor, is in talks to take ownership of 666 Fifth Avenue, a Manhattan skyscraper that represents one of the largest blunders in the recent history of New York real estate, the Times reported.

    "Kushner Companies, then led by Jared and Charles Kushner, his father and the company’s current head, purchased the property for a then-record $1.8 billion in 2007.

    "But the market crash the next year wiped out much of the value of their investment, and in recent years Kushner Companies has tried to line up a deal to get out from under $1.4 billion worth of debt on the skyscraper that is due next year.

    "The Times reported revenue from the building produces just half its annual mortgage payment."

    I wonder if Jared can afford his security clearance now?

    This was an absolute “gift” from Qatar. We are left to simply wonder what they are getting in return (besides a dog of a building).

    The Trump cesspool of corruption gets more rank every day, as the Trump rabble applaud the corruption.

    Finding anything is a snap matter ... finding everything would require a full-time staff.

    It appears there are at least 30 million Americans who will never turn on Trump regardless of his criminal acts. If Dems take back the congress and pursue impeachment in 2019, there will be civil war in cyberspace (at least):eek:

    Someone must've finally told Trump that we have troops in Qatar.

    The sprawling base 20 miles southwest of the Qatari capital of Doha is home to some 11,000 US military personnel. The US Combined Air Operations Center (CAOC) at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, provides command and control of air power throughout Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, and 17 other nations.

    He was using the power of our govt to lean on them for the money like a thug. It absolutely shameful that congress and his party support and/or defend this behavior.

    He's a puke, but probably the best Daddy's Little Princess could get. She's even more putrid than her husband.

    And as always, the Trump rabble just completely ignore it. They prove daily that they will tolerate staggering levels of corruption from the Trump crime family. They even seem to enjoy it.

    Trump sells Qatar $12 billion of U.S. weapons days after accusing it of funding terrorism
    Last Updated Jun 15, 2017 1:46 PM EDT

    WASHINGTON -- While President Trump berates Qatar for sponsoring terrorism at the highest levels, he is simultaneously authorizing the country to purchase over $21 billion of U.S. weapons.

    One portion of that deal -- $12 billion for 36 F-15QA fighter jets -- was inked on Wednesday in Washington, D.C., when Qatar's Defense Minister met with U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis.

    "We are pleased to announce today the signing of the letter of offer and acceptance for the purchase of the F-15QA fighter jets, with an initial cost of $12 billion dollars," read the Qatari Defense Minister's statement on Wednesday afternoon. "We believe that this agreement will propel Qatar's ability to provide for its own security while also reducing the burden placed upon the United States military in conducting operations against violent extremism."

    The Qatari ambassador to the U.S. tweeted a photo of the signing.

    Qatar signs LOA for the purchase of the F-15QA fighter jets creating 60,000 new jobs in 42 states across the United States

    The State Department describes this sale as fermenting U.S. efforts to "strengthen the security and defense architecture of the region." They point out that it does not directly conflict with the current regional dispute as it will take years to complete and fill the sale in full.


    "We are confident that Qatar can address its remaining issues within this timeframe, prior to delivery," explains a State Department official.

    Qataris had scheduled Wednesday's trip to formalize portions of this arms deal with the U.S. government about two months ago, according to Qatari and State Department officials. They want these weapons. So, despite growing tensions and Mr. Trump's repeated hardline stance against their support of Iran and regional terrorist groups, the Qataris came because they want the weapons.

    "We are working on the process related to the signing," said one Qatari official on Wednesday morning. "It is normal. We are in the stage where we want to finalize this deal."

    Qataris say the deal demonstrates the "long standing commitment" Qatar has to working with the U.S.
