Major, Grotesque Conflict of INTEREST: How much money should Mr. Trump be allowed to receive via our enemies funneling cash through his hotel coffers then right into his greedy little cheap suit pockets before it’s defined as a major, unprecedented federal crime? In a fully functioning democracy, aside from all the other devastating criminal investigations surrounding his close inner circle and rapidly closing in on him, Conspiracy, Treason, Collusion, Treachery, Obstruction, Abuse of Power etc, Mr. Trump would already be serving a life sentence in prison for his blatant crimes against our constitution: Place your politics aside and just let this sink in for a moment: Right now as we speak, anyone on the planet, including terrorists and hostile Russian Agents can funnel money strait into Donald’s greedy little pockets via his hotel in DC: UNREAL: The “Emoluments Clause” was the original anti-corruption law of the land which deems this unlawful activity a crime against the United States Constitution and Mr. Trump obviously could care less about it because he must truly believe he‘s an elderly, excessively obese emperor who is above our laws:
"The emoluments case is the nightmare Trump has long feared"
"A federal judge on Wednesday rejected President Trump’s latest effort to stop a lawsuit that alleges Trump is violating the Constitution by continuing to do business with foreign governments."

Jake , Just got you a CNN pass , they told me "Just tell Jake to show up anytime "
That's great, just leave it on the table, I don't need it right now but I will when I attend the first news conference to inform to public that Traitor Trump was just sentenced to life imprisonment for Conspiracy Against America in broad daylight::
Thanks for sharing this, Jake. I would kinda like to see him squirm out of this one......
You're welcome Credence2: So how does Traitor Trump desperately try to defend himself from a crime he previously committed? Just commit the SAME crime again to try and cover up the last one: It's a pattern: UNREAL:
Just like the criminal investigations which are compiling damning evidence against Traitor Trump covertly for his other egregious offenses against the USA such as obstruction, conspiracy, treason, treachery, abuse of power etc, I don't think he 'squirms' out of his blatant emoluments clause federal crimes:
Wait until the discovery phase of this incredibly profound law suit begins and prosecutors uncover paper trails with credit card transactions or wire transfers from foreign offshore accounts or all cash payments from dubious or potentially nefarious sources:
WHY is Saudi Arabia keeping Bozo's hotel afloat as reported by investigative sources?
Here's another astounding act of betrayal and treachery which Traitor Trump routinely practices: UNREAL it's nothing short of insane that this unstable, weird orange guy still has a security clearance and access to classified intel:
"Schiff: Trump deal with ZTE a ‘violation of the emoluments clause’"
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said Tuesday that he believes President Trump is violating the Constitution's emoluments clause by making a deal with Beijing over Chinese telecommunications company ZTE.
“I certainly view this as a violation of the emoluments clause, yes. And many others as well, both foreign, in terms of the business effort to expand the Trump Organization,” Schiff told CNN’s “New Day,” referring to a constitutional clause that bars the president from accepting payments or gifts from foreign governments without congressional consent.

ahorseback: Do you ever respond to the actual topic, or just roam around posting old, tired, stale fox fake channel style conservative talking points?
Old, tired and boring false comparisons between a good and righteous President Obama who paved the road for ALL Americans to receive comprehensive healthcare, and an evil Russian controlled clown like Traitor Trump who is desperately trying to take your children's healthcare away from them will never work:
Retarded signs like the one you posted will never save Traitor Trump from the long awaited administration of justice which is about to hit him like a sledge hammer on that flat orange head of his:
"President Obama who paved the road for ALL Americans to receive comprehensive healthcare"
Now why would you post a whopper like that? Obama provided health insurance - insurance with such high deductibles and out of pocket limits the poor could never use it. Useful only for padding the pockets of insurance companies.
You're just plain wrong wilderness, and many ACA recipients testified to the fact that if it were not for the critically important health insurance the ACA provided, they and or their children would not receive life or death cancer treatments, medications and or medical treatment:
What's the conservative republican alternative other than stripping you of your health insurance and forcing you to seek medical attention at the emergency room if you're lucky enough to make it there before you die?:
On the 'EVIL' side, Traitor Trump and his Russian controlled republican congress-persons are doing everything within their power to strip healthcare away from EVERYONE including our children, just one reason why conservative republicans are getting wiped out in special elections and will continue to suffer dire consequences going forward:
But this is not a discussion about Bozo Trump's despicable sabotaging of the USA, the environment and your health, it's about the criminal law suit moving forward involving his ultra-corrupt company accepting money from foreign governments including we must presume, money from our arch enemies such as Russia, China and others who are using him extremely effectively to undermine our democracy and collapse our foundation:
Sorry - I've had that insurance. I don't need to take reports from faceless voices on the internet. I've had a policy with a $6,000 deductible and I'll tell you first hand that poor people are no better off with it than without it. Either way they cannot afford a doctor visit and a hospital stay is simply unpayable.
So you go ahead with your pretense that insurance equates to care - I'll remain with my feet firmly planted on the ground and stick with the truth. No pie in the sky pretty talk, no pretending, no lies. Just the unvarnished truth that the bronze plans under Obamacare - the ones available to the poor - aren't worth the time to read.
wilderness, I've already heard the nonsense from all the other crazy radical right wing nut cases, you're just telling intelligent individuals to stop supporting their own healthcare system and insurance which provides medical help to themselves and their children, just because you hate President Obama for creating a system designed to cover ALL of us not just the fortunate few, your attempt will never work:
FYI, the topic of this discussion is not about the ACA / Obamacare which provides millions of Americans including our children vital health insurance which pays for the medical attention they so desperately need, it's about the ticking time bomb of justice which has already exploded all over the orange face of Bozo Trump:
The emoluments clause of the constitution, those who violate it by taking money and or other consideration from foreign governments including our enemies must pay a severe penalty as a future deterrent just in case God forbid another impostor president is embedded in our white house by hostile agents:
BTW: Millions of Obamacare recipients strongly support our health system despite your attempt to convince them otherwise and of course they strongly disagree with you: You should work to force your corrupt Russian controlled republican congress-persons to lower premiums and deductibles if you're truly concerned, not try to undermine our entire healthcare system like soon to be imprisoned Bozo Trump does ad nauseam:
'Judge allows case alleging illegal foreign gifts to proceed against President'
https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/25/politics … index.html
Keep believing propaganda and dismissing first hand experience. It will keep the health care crisis firmly in place and continue to line the pockets of providers while ensuring Americans continue to be denied affordable options.
Or, the better option is to listen to first hand experience and find a solution. Of course, to do that would entail setting emotionally charged rants to the side and attempt to think. A lot of people find that too much trouble.
Then call your congress-person or senator like retard Rand Paul who presides over one of the most impoverished states called Kentucky and demand they CAP insurance premiums and deductibles which is the ONLY solution:
Now, we've settled that discussion, do you have any comments or concerns pertaining to Bozo Trump's blatant constitutional federal crimes of failing to divest and taking money from foreign governments who may now have influence over the future direction of this country?
Why is Traitor Trump trying to destroy our NATO allies? Why is Traitor Trump obedient like a lap dog to Vladimir Putin? Why is Saudi Arabia pushing a Trump named property over the line from red to black ink?
Not concerned that your country is no longer?
First, you didn't settle that discussion. Second, since I see no evidence to prove your allegations I see it as a 'have you stopped beating your wife' scenario. If untrue to start with, no discussion can ensue.
Your apparent unwillingness to accept the facts and evidence pertaining to the mountain of criminal data being compiled against Mr. Trump and his family is not really my concern, but let's just say the overwhelming majority of federal judges, prosecutors and all others who practice law disagree with you:
You might want to read this:
"Judge rejects Trump's bid to stop emoluments clause law suit"
https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/25/politics … index.html
Jake, I don't think everything done by anyone is perfect or without room for improvement. But you can't have a discussion when one side appears to be unrelenting and vitriolic. I'll leave you to what appears to be a mission of propaganda and disinformation.
And as usual, I'll just leave you with the facts Live to Learn: Your orange mega corrupt clown in the white house who seems to answer allegations of a crimes by simply committing the same crime again in broad daylight is in DEEP trouble just from his blatant emoluments criminal offenses:
Perhaps somebody should have advised him that it would be essential for him to DIVEST prior to being embedded in the presidency by our Russian enemies or it would indeed be a criminal offense:
"In Ruling Against Trump, Judge Defines Anticorruption Clauses in Constitution for First Time"
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/25/us/p … wsuit.html
Sorry Live to Learn, but the vast majority of us American citizens do not accept the orange Russian Stooge as a legitimate president:
"insurance which provides medical help to themselves and their children"
See, that's the problem You're going to insist that an insurance policy provides health care, while knowing that doctors do that while insurance companies deal only in money.
And then you're going to insist that an insurance policy with a $6,000 deductible, where the first $6,000 per year per person somehow makes the poor financially able to purchase the care they need in a doctor's visit.
And when you can't do that in any reasonable form you're going to go back to the emoluments clause without having the faintest idea of what it is or how previous presidents have fared with their own foreign income. You're going to go way out on a limb and claim that Republicans are controlled by Russians undermining the hospitals and clinics in our country.
In other words you have nothing to offer but lies and flamboyant rhetoric based on silly descriptive terms rather than truth and reality. All cooked up in a nice batch self proclaimed hatred that is so deep and strong as to eliminate any rational thought as you set aside any ethics and claim that earnings of other people belong to you to do with as you see fit.
"How much money should Mr. Trump be allowed to receive via our enemies funneling cash through his hotel coffers then right into his greedy little cheap suit pockets before it’s defined as a major, unprecedented federal crime?"
$1. Now all you have to do is prove that another government is "funneling cash through his hotels" and not renting a room at the going rate being charged everyone else and that Trump knew of it and approved the "transaction".
Good luck with that!
I dealt with Trump over money before.
It' seem impossible to deal with a mafia megalomanic king.
He is a world champion for lawsuit, now he has gotten legal immunity as President. When Trump dose get caught, there will be a new world record for bodies pile-on when Trump is finally down.
Patriot Tom Steyer gives us a brief summary of Donald Trump's Offenses Against the USA in this SHOCKING short film:
Bill Clinton was not impeached, like said on the video.
Castlepaloma: Hypocritical, fake christian republicans did indeed proceed with the impeachment process but they failed to convict President Clinton because the only so called 'crime' he committed was having a mutually consensual affair with another woman:
The trove of public evidence reveals Traitor Trump has committed treason, treachery, obstruction, abuse of power, conspiracy, collusion and crimes against our constitution while bowing down in submission to our arch enemy Vladimir Putin, Tom Steyer's primary point is questioning how this could possibly happen and how on this Earth is he allowed to remain in our white house receiving classified intel? UNBELIEVABLE and Unacceptable:
Breaking BIG: *******: Developing NOW: Try not to hit the floor too hard when you fall off your chair after reading this unbelievably incriminating report about Mr. Trump:
"Trump hotel relies on foreign officials to turn a profit"
"Trump's New York hotel turned a profit, thanks to help from the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. Trump is personally enriching himself from this transaction, causing ethical and constitutional concerns."
"Foreign government officials are lining Trump’s pockets by staying at his hotels. In fact, Trump’s New York hotel turned a profit for the first time in two years in large part because of the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia."

Real news ; Not Fake
Scientists are finally releasing documents explaining why the democratic party is in melt-down failure mode , based on years of scientific study , they have determined that even the voting democrats are smarter than their chosen leadership , their followers are better leaders than their leader leaders .
There are however a few holdouts .
Breaking Big NOW ******: Developing: Bravo !! How this sick joker is still allowed to roam our white house and look at confidential material is nothing less than mind boggling:
"We're continuing to investigate," said department spokeswoman Amy Spitalnick. "This office has repeatedly and successfully acted to hold Donald Trump accountable for unlawful and unconstitutional actions, and we will continue to do so."
https://www.timesunion.com/news/article … 134769.php
Patriot Robert Reich explains several reasons why Donald Trump must be impeached or a dangerous precedent will be set, a precedent in which our constitution will be rendered invalid and unenforceable which of course means our country that is obviously under the influence of our enemies, will continue swiftly spiraling downward in financial, economic, national security and moral crisis: It will realistically crash and burn to the ground if the law does not step in::
When the 'Trump Tribunals" begin, they will not only imprison and impeach him, but many of his republican complicit accomplices such as con man Paul Ryan, slippery Marco Rubio, and Devin Nunes for an unconscionable breach of their oaths and enabling his blatant crimes against our constitution:
"Confused by emoluments? The Founding Fathers would have impeached Trump in a New York minute"
"The Founding Fathers had someone just like Donald Trump in mind when they banned any and all emoluments to the president from any foreign or state governments"
"Conservatives, we are constantly told, believe in strict adherence to the Constitution based primarily on the text and secondarily on the views of the Founding Fathers. If conservatives really were “originalists,” they would be the first to say that Donald Trump is exactly the kind of president who ought to be impeached."
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-f … 2018-08-10
Nunes is a piece of $#!T, Jake. He admitted he was trying to protect Trump while his job is to act as oversight on the administration. It's what he's paid to do by the taxpayers, but he's instead acting as a defensive part of Trump's agenda. I hope he goes down with the other cretins...
So far , Your leftist rants only prove one thing , you know how to stand with the finest and rant , Facts ? No such thing . Truth ? Not even close . Justified ? No. Just a bunch of childish rants on a keyboard .
Randy: We are now in an unthinkable, insane, hopefully very brief impostor Trump era where the corruption and expressed loyalty to our enemies is perpetrated in plain sight, in broad daylight on national television with apparent total disregard for the law, the best interest of the USA and our constitution which ALL complicit republicans simply ignore for what they perceive as self enrichment: That's considered ultra criminal and many or these puppet conservatives must pay a severe legal price for their betrayals of this once great nation:
Unheard of Grotesque MEGA White House Corruption to the point that we live in an unrecognizable crumbling country, a quasi third world dictatorship where the political branches of whats left of our government, circumvent the judicial branch: UNREAL: Dangerous:
The Darkest Times ever in our History are upon us and our founders knew one day this insanity would emerge: A gigantic cesspool of despicable and extremely harmful activity led by a mentally bankrupt, self absorbed orange troll undermining our healthcare system, our judicial system, our social being, our NATO allies, our law enforcement and our very democracy:
These fine patriots are aiming to abate or even terminate the blatant emoluments clause crime where as it stands right now, believe it or not, any foreign enemy can enrich the so called president by funneling money into properties which promote his name: Unacceptable:
Jake, with all of the indictments of Trump's cronies his fans are doubling down on their support for him. The circle is slowly closing on the cretin and no doubt Mueller knows where the bodies are buried. It's only a matter of time before his supporters will have to make a decision to back a criminal, or to finally understand they've been had by one.
Boy , you guys are definitely suffer fried brains when Mueller turns up either nothing of indictable offense on Trumps part OR you realize that even if Mueller comes up with something ; it won't ever meet your satisfaction for a punishable crime.
At which point I'm sure you will all ramble on with your incredibly factual posts . Slaying those psychological dragons from your questionably evolving ideological maturity .
No troll here , just a brilliance of mind reading the players in the game of ideological chess . What will you do when Trump is exonerated ?
IF he is exonerated. What do the righties do if he is not?
My point is you're all going to really melt some brain cells if he isn't , and he won't be indicted .
He can't be innocent because just the evidence in the public domain convicts him and we have no idea how much more evidence the criminal investigation has unearthed in secret:
Sorry, but it's a serious federal crime against the constitution to be enriched by our enemies or even friends while sitting in our oval office and just because he's mad enough to do it in broad daylight doesn't make it any less of a crime::
He's burnt toast and he and 'batty' Rudy Giuliani know it, that's why they sweat bullets all day and night long crying on fox loser channel:
Randy, if they are still capable of independent thought and logic, the last remaining Trump cultees are now deciding if they are willing to stay on the ultra corrupt sinking titanic called 'Trump' and join him and evil charlatan Jerry Falwell Junior who are already leading them down the crooked, white hot path straight to hell, or find the light and convert over to the good, righteous side of the overwhelming majority in the resistance who are fighting against Bozo Trump's blatant racism, betrayal of our nation, women hating and evil atrocious crimes against humanity and we the people like caging innocent children and crimes against our constitution:
The signs are positive: While a tiny core of Trump cultees remain in line to walk off that cliff with him, according to reports and polls, women are abandoning him in droves, independents are abandoning him in droves, veterans are abandoning him in droves and even some republicans are leaving him and the party in the dust:
Apparently, Bozo Trump and his staff actually thought 10,000 veterans would attend his little hate festival but the venue according to reports, had to be downsized, only 4,000 veterans showed and there were still empty seats:
https://www.kansascity.com/news/politic … 59965.html
I wonder why Mr. Trump refused to be transparent with his finances? He NEVER delivered a copy of his tax returns for public view, it's been years now, I wonder why? Not all aspects of financial ties and or transactions can be ascertained from tax returns, but certain allegations could be either confirmed or dis-proven with a simple release:
Now, with a constant stream of cash and we presume credit transactions flowing through properties with his name attached, his attorneys, I hope for his sake not the incompetent fools representing him in the Mueller criminal investigation, are trying desperately to block public view of financial documents pertaining to his Trump hotel in what can only be defined as a clear attempt to obstruct and or delay the pending court action involving federal emoluments crimes: UNREAL:
"Justice lawyers try to block release of Trump Hotel financial records in emoluments case"
"WASHINGTON (AP) — Justice Department lawyers asked a federal judge Friday to let them file a legal appeal that could, for now, keep President Donald Trump's critics from getting access to financial records related to his Washington, D.C., hotel.
Trump has been fighting multiple lawsuits that argue that foreign representatives' spending money at the Trump International Hotel is a violation of the U.S. Constitution's emoluments clause, which bans federal officials from accepting benefits from foreign or state governments"
https://wjla.com/news/local/justice-law … emoluments
ALARMING *****: Taken From Media Archives: Just another perfect example of WHY the founders inserted the very first anti-corruption law into our constitution called the emoluments clause to prevent the Trump's of the world from collecting filthy money while representing the USA:
They anticipated sooner or later, a self absorbed, paranoid, mentally unstable mega-corrupt anti-American person would somehow, someway perhaps with the assistance of our enemies, assume control of the awesome power of the white house and might try to use it for something other than the good of the country:
DISGUSTING and Unacceptable: According to a Business Insider report, The anti-American instigator of the Charlottesville white nationalist rally which ended in the death of one innocent patriotic American, stayed at the Trump DC Hotel while planning the atrocious march: UNREAL:
"Richard Spencer stayed at Trump's D.C. hotel while he planned the Charlottesville rally"
"Richard Spencer, a noted white nationalist and supporter of President Donald Trump, is one of many frequent guests at the new Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C., according to a New York Times report published Friday."

I hate to hurt your feelings Jake , But no president HAS to reveal their tax returns legally ! ......... Are you crying yet ?
You can not be a President of a country, only be a President of a company or Corporation. That is what the US is all about... US Corp.. How else can you enslave blacks for 3/4 of their history in America and create the greatest human genocide in world history. Natives were the true owners of America,. And have wars 93℅ of the time since the beginning of Independence.
Bank are privately owned and own the Government indirectly. They print American dollars and use the American Constitution like toliet paper. Wait til s*it hits the fan. Can they print out enough toliet paper fast enough? No, so I'll move on before they stir the s*it and the more they stir it, the more it, stinks and run out of toliet paper. Then the rest of the world dose not want it anymore.
Breaking BIG: Stunning Developing NOW *******: Trump's Potential Crimes Against The Constitution: Emoluments Clause Legal Action Allowed To Move Forward:
I'm sure Vladimir Putin would give Mr. Trump the green light to accept gifts and money from foreign governments if he flees to Moscow, but even an illegitimate president is prohibited by the US Constitution from committing the same serious federal crime here in what's left of the USA:
"Suit alleging Trump’s private business is violating the Constitution can proceed, federal judge rules"
http://www.columbiadailyherald.com/news … udge-rules
I found the last paragraph, that presidents have conducted business with foreign governments for 200 years without challenge to be interesting. Any idea of why it is suddenly illegal after centuries of presidents doing the same thing?
Could it be (gasp) more TDS?
Astonishing *******: Developing NOW ******* WHEN DOES IT End and What's WRONG With Them ?? Apparently, they just don't care, they feel they are entitled, or they are so far Removed from REALITY they simply fail to or are unable to recognize the substantial legal jeopardy this represents to themselves and to this once great nation: UNREAL and Unacceptable:
"DONALD TRUMP'S POTENTIAL DOMINICAN REPUBLIC REAL ESTATE DEAL MAY VIOLATE THE CONSTITUTION, REPORT REVEALS"
"Despite his promise not to pursue new foreign business deals while in office, evidence has emerged that the Trump Organization, which is now run on a day-to-day basis by the president’s two adult sons, is again pursuing a similar deal with the same Dominican developers the organization cut ties with many years ago. Many lawmakers and experts note that this project could constitute a conflict of interest, and the Global Witness report released Monday argues that the project could violate the Constitution."
