Why didn’t we know about this before the election?
The FBI published documents offering a glimpse of attention paid to Donald Trump’s real estate company over the past four decades on Tuesday, following years of resistance.
A pair of subpoenas for testimony to a federal grand jury in Manhattan, which were accepted by attorneys who worked for the Trump Organization, were among the files released under freedom of information (Foia) laws.
But the name of the people called as witnesses and the federal crimes alleged to have been broken in the November 1985 case were redacted, along with hundreds of other details across 149 pages that were published following requests by reporters.
Also among the released files was an FBI report on a threat made against the life of a New York City official who was refusing to give Trump a tax break. Trump denied any involvement in the threat and later gave the official a job.
Doesn’t Matter what the Mueller Report says on whether Trump ‘colluded’ with the Russians, you and I know the truth. Donald Trump is a traitor. He is working on behalf of the Kremlin:
A new Politico/Morning Consult poll finds that 52 percent of voters believe Russia has compromising information on President Donald Trump. The finding comes as his administration insists at every turn that Attorney General William Barr’s letter about the Mueller report exonerates Trump, even though it says the exact opposite.
And the public knows that Trump tried to impede the Mueller investigation because he and his minions have something to hide. The all lied about their contacts with the Russians. That’s why we all want to read the report and judge for ourselves:
The poll also found that a 47 percent plurality of voters believe Trump “tried to impede or obstruct the investigation into whether his campaign had ties to Russia.” A 49 percent plurality also said they’re most likely to accept Robert Mueller’s Version of the investigation, with only 27 percent saying they’d trust Trump’s. Most voters believe the full Mueller report should be made public (82 percent).
Trump can’t help but hire people who are cheats:
Stephen Moore, President Donald Trump’s pick for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board, owes $75,000 in taxes and penalties to Uncle Sam.
A circuit court filing in Maryland shows the US government won a judgment against Moore, a former Trump campaign adviser and now a distinguished fellow at the conservative Heritage Foundation, for a federal tax lien valued at $75,328.80. The January 2018 filing says it was for unpaid taxes, penalties, interest and other costs in 2014.
In fact, the liar-in-chief hired someone who is his own image–unfit to hold office but good at self promotion:
Stephen Moore’s career as an economic analyst has been a decades-long continuous procession of error and hackery. It is not despite but precisely because of these errors that Moore now finds himself in the astonishing position of having been offered a position on the Federal Reserve board by President Trump.
Moore’s primary area of pseudo-expertise — he is not an economist — is fiscal policy. He is a dedicated advocate of supply-side economics, relentlessly promoting his fanatical hatred of redistribution and belief that lower taxes for the rich can and will unleash wondrous prosperity. Like nearly all supply-siders, he has clung to this dogma in the face of repeated, spectacular failures.
You have to really suck to have such low poll numbers given the all the ‘great’ successes he’s had:
Donald Trump spent Monday and Tuesday taking what Politico called a “victory lap” after the report of findings by Special Counsel Robert Mueller failed to indict him for either conspiracy with Russia or obstruction of justice. But as polling data began to roll in on Tuesday, showing how the public responded to the Mueller report, the numbers did not show much of a victory for Trump at all.
In fact, as the polling firm Morning Consult reported, Trump’s popularity — or lack of it — among American voters remained “unchanged” after the Mueller Report, or more accurately, a four-page memo about the report by Attorney general William Barr, was made public on Sunday.
