Wyden Probe of Turkish Bank Runs Into Mnuchin Meeting With Erdoğan

A month into Senator Ron Wyden’s investigation of Halkbank, the Turkish state-run bank accused of the biggest money-laundering scheme ever charged in U.S. history, U.S. Treasury officials informed lawmakers that Secretary Steven Mnuchin recently attended a White House lunch with Turkey’s strongman Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

“The Treasury Department does not deny that President Trump tasked Secretary Mnuchin with intervening in the criminal investigation of Halkbank, and the department’s response to my letter raises more questions than it answers,” Wyden said

The only thing that is going to save Trump is the republican controlled Senate. The information coming out keeps making it clear that there is more than a little there, but they will not remove one of their own.

The GOP will have a choice - hold Trump accountable or lose credibility for the next 15-25 years. Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon and outraged the nation, he ended up serving less than a year and the reaction at the polls was to elect Jimmy Carter.

And after Clinton, we had the Bush years.

I just realized something, that's inappropriate in so many ways, but in the film, Rocky beats the Russian.
Wrong Rocky movie. Three is with Mr. T as the bad guy. He also has the former champ train him to beat Lang(Mr. T). What former President would come help Trump? Maybe if Nixon were still alive... maybe?

No ‘no quid pro quo’ call?

Witness testimony and records raise questions about account of Trump’s ‘no quid pro quo’ call

Sondland’s recollection of a phone conversation that he said took place on Sept. 9 has emerged as a centerpiece of Trump’s defense as House Democrats argue in an impeachment inquiry that he abused his office to pressure Ukraine to investigate Democrats.

However, no other witness testimony or documents have emerged that corroborate Sondland’s description of a call that day.

ICE arrests 90 more students at fake university in Michigan

The students had arrived legally in the U.S. on student visas, but since the University of Farmington was later revealed to be a creation of federal agents, they lost their immigration status after it was shut down in January. The school was located on Northwestern Highway near 13 Mile Road in Farmington Hills and staffed with undercover agents posing as university officials.
So they copied Trump's fake college idea and then deported them once it was discovered they were a fake college and shut down. How is this doing any good?

Trump Tax Records Reveal New Inconsistencies — This Time for Trump Tower

Documents show the president’s company reported different numbers — higher ones to lenders, lower ones to tax officials — for Trump’s signature building. Last month, ProPublica revealed a similar pattern in two other Trump buildings.

Oh, sidenote on this one. earlier this week a reporter for Newsweek wrote an article mentioning that Trump was going to spend thanksgiving golfing. Not an opinion piece, or an editorial, it was tagged as "news".

Well, as it turns out, he was visiting the troops on an undisclosed location in Afghanistan. Oops.



The Journalist has since been fired.
