Trump claimed he has no ties to Russia, but reporting in a new book by Craig Unger describes Russian mafia-linked money laundering involving Trump properties that goes back to the 1980s. Unger tells Ari Melber that he found “at least 1300 times” over the past “20 or 30 years” where Russian money helped “Trump get rich again”.
This is what the Republican Party has become. They are so bent on pandering to Trump voters that the GOP is tying itself into knots. It’s shameful and offensive:
Georgia lawmaker says he doesn’t have an issue with Trump using N-word in the past
Why isn’t the press talking about this? Omarosa is a relevant story. But this much more important. Kavanaugh must be defeated. His ascension to the Supreme Court would be disastrous for America:
One of the top concerns of Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is whether he knew anything about, authorized, or advised the Bush administration on their torture program for detainees in the War on Terror while he served as White House staff secretary.
In 2006, during his confirmation to the D.C. Circuit, Kavanaugh told senators, under oath, that he was “not involved in the questions about the rules governing detention of combatants,” and had no knowledge of issues about “the legal justifications or the policies relating to the treatment of detainees,” according to NBC News. However, Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-VT), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), and Dick Durbin (D-IL) assert that multiple documents and email chains show Kavanaugh was briefed on the issue, implying he was not honest with the Senate.
