A good point, the corrupted Obama DOJ covered their people. In this case we have a situation of "Get Trump by any means necessary" - porn stars, bunnies, NYC Taxi medallions, consulting contracts with Turkey - whatever it takes.


More Republican paranoia and McCarthyism. Tailgunner Joe kept waiving his "list of 200 Commies in the State Dept", but all he had in his briefcase was a bottle of cheap scotch. Let's get some names and how they got to be able to control DOJ when its only Republican appointees who burrow into civil service jobs when their appointment is about to end. There IS a "deep state" thwarting the will of Presidents, but it's totally CONSERVATIVE REPUBLICAN.

 

Also, how is it wonderful that Republican Comey disgraces himself and the FBI by releasing his last futile attempt to find dirt on Hillary but a consipracy when Mueller actually indicts 31 and convicts 5?

Is that "whatever it takes to maintain an opulent lifestyle" or "whatever it takes to demonstrate the corruption around Trump"?


The dishonesty (again) of selective editing. 


Of course trump is corrupt.

 

He has a lifetime of being corrupt - he learned how to be corrupt from his dishonest racist daddy - as well as from his close business relationships with Mafia Fixer Roy Cohn and the NY Mafia - and in the late eighties when he desperately needed money and support - from his close relationships with Russian, Ukrainian, etc bankers and related Mafia...

 

Are his followers and supporters corrupt?

 

Yep - way more than just a couple of them...

   There is no way to measure the depth of the corrupt players within the current WH regime.   We have witnessed absurd behavior and mismanagement by those he chose to work inside the Beltway.   

    The difference with Donald is that he has not displayed any analytical or didactic skills to prove that he has ever considered any alternatives to anything.   If he "learned" something half a century ago, he has never re-considered or re-evaluated if that stance is appropriate for the 21st Century.      That may explain his affinity for the nuclear bomb.   

 

     Donald is not only  fiscally corrupt, but also morally corrupt and too stupid to consider anything but what he was raised to believe or observed as a child.   Without a moral compass, we see that he is unmoored and easily swayed by utter nonsense as long as it is put into language he can comprehend, like a 5 year old.

Trump has surrounded himself with corrupt people.  We have cabinet members using vast sums of taxpayer money for their own benefit. We have campaign officers evading taxes.  We have lawyers making deals for him he claims to know nothing about. We have security advisers working with foreign governments. We have relatives meeting with Russians. 

 

Is it at ALL possible that Trump just has the worst HR department in the history of the presidency? 


I think there are a few different things going on here

 

1. People like Trump - Manafort - Cohen - Pruitt - Ross - Mnuchin........................they have conducted themselves in the same Corrupt Manner their entire lives and got away with it

 

2. It's possible that becuase it's been a way of life for so long - many of them are shocked to learn - it's upsetting to people who follow the rules when they learn about this stuff

 

3. I hear the Trump Sycophants on Cable News Shows talking about - no one else ever gets charged for any of these kinds of things - it's just because they are out to get Trump

 

4. I even heard Trump say something similar in the Fox News interview over the weekend - he said about Manafort - all the Washington Lobbyists out there right now are doing the same kinds of things they found Manafort Guilty of and have been forever

 

Again, Trump and those in the Trump Cult are impervious to reason and immune to irony and unquestionably guilty of anti-intellectualism

His entire life proves this

 

Now, will his enablers understand they've been had and at least just stay home in November so we can remove all the elected Republicans who are able to support his continued criminality? Probably not - so VOTE OUT THE NRAGOP IN NOVEMBER! No more "Politicians are all alike" - we've got all the evidence that REPUBLICAN polticians are much WORSE for us all.
