Even the RNC chairman now says there is a cloud over the White House.
Trump's financial ties to Russia will probably end his reign faster than hacking charges will.
The following is from a 6 March 2017 Democracy Now! interview.
"Part 2: Are Trump's Ties to Russia a Dangerous Security Issue or Critics' Fodder for New Red Scare?"
"SCOTT HORTON... I would also say, on the financial side, the financial side and the flow of money is really the much bigger story than the hacking and the issues surrounding the hacking. And on that, there’s been actually—
"JUAN GONZÁLEZ: And some of the reports are that the FISA order was in relationship to two Russian banks, right?
"SCOTT HORTON: Precisely. It’s Vneshtorgbank and Alf Bank are mentioned in the FISA court order. And this was issued by a Republican judge, so there had to have been a showing of probable cause to get that order. That’s a significant fact.
Care to make a bet on it?
"Network of wealthy Russians has sunk $100m into Donald Trump's luxury developments
"The President recently insisted he has 'no deals in Russia' but investigations show lengthy list of major investments by Russian elite in his property empire."
Didn't we already have this "bet" conversation?
That the dossier isn't just fake news ?
Yeah, I am willing to bet it is not just fake news.
Now watch as somebody shuts their yap and runs away.
It's his desperation posting device aimed at changing the subject from what is happening to what hasn't happened even if it only moves to conversation to what hasn't happened yet .
It's cheap and crude scam just like Trumpism.
Trump's business ties around the Caspian Sea include dealings with the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, a "terrorist" organization.
Can you imagine how DC and cyberspace would have responded if Obama had similar scandals?
"But the Mammadov family, in addition to its reputation for corruption, has a troubling connection that any proper risk assessment should have unearthed: for years, it has been financially entangled with an Iranian family tied to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, the ideologically driven military force.
"In 2008, the year that the (Trump) tower was announced, Ziya Mammadov, in his role as Transportation Minister, awarded a series of multimillion-dollar contracts to Azarpassillo, an Iranian construction company.
"Keyumars Darvishi, its chairman, fought in the Iran-Iraq War. After the war, he became the head of Raman, an Iranian construction firm that is controlled by the Revolutionary Guard.
"The U.S. government has regularly accused the Guard of criminal activity, including drug trafficking, sponsoring terrorism abroad, and money laundering. Reuters recently reported that the Trump Administration was poised to officially condemn the Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization."
This thing will not last. But the memory of this abomination should be a new cornerstone in our history. We have to learn from this and protect or country from it. It is clear to me that a bonafide criminal has ascended to the presidency with the aid of a foreign adversary.
Dream on Dreamer
Comey didn't call it fact............
It reminds me of a slow-motion train wreck. I also don't believe Trump is anything except a gangster or that he'll survive long in the Oval Office; however if the Donald and his brood stay out of prison, it will send the wrong message to all the other crony capitalists harboring thoughts of how to run government like a for-profit business.
If they stay out of prison it means there are no real law in this country.
Pig-in-pant-suits and ya boy Θ proves that to be true
The law of the jungle?
If Trump's greed doesn't open a few eyes to how the rich corrupt politics in particular and society in general, I doubt if anything ever will.
I wasn't asking you. You had your chance to put up and you pussied out.
OF course you did not...Your eyes have to be open.
They who? Obama and Hillary?...So far so good huh? What you thought fake news would put Trump in jail? Probably so cause that is who you are.
I asking you. Now pussy out and run along unless you're feeling brave for once.
