New Republic: A review of the public record reveals a clear and disturbing pattern: Trump owes much of his business success, and by extension his presidency, to a flow of highly suspicious money from Russia. Over the past three decades, at least 13 people with known or alleged links to Russian mobsters or oligarchs have owned, lived in, and even run criminal activities out of Trump Tower and other Trump properties. Many used his apartments and casinos to launder untold millions in dirty money.

+1  The above link points to a long and detailed article in the New Republic:

 

Trump’s Russian Laundromat by Craig Unger July 13, 2017

"How to use Trump Tower and other luxury high-rises to clean dirty money, run an international crime syndicate, and propel a failed real estate developer into the White House."

Conspiracy theorist clickbait. From the same article:

 

 

It’s entirely possible that Trump was never more than a convenient patsy for Russian oligarchs and mobsters, with his casinos and condos providing easy pass-throughs for their illicit riches. At the very least, with his constant need for new infusions of cash and his well-documented troubles with creditors, Trump made an easy “mark” for anyone looking to launder money.

Can you expand on why you see the article or the paragraph I quoted to be clickbait?

And now the Senate found out they can't pass their crappy healthcare bill. Of course the next thing is to plan for a repeal now and work on an old one (that was vetoed by President Obama) as a replacement IN TWO YEARS TIME.

 

The Republicans have no mercy of poor people. All for the "We won! We repealed it!"

IETF takes unusual step of moving USA conference:

The Register: The organisation had surveyed members about the US travel restrictions: those living in America didn't see a problem, but 15 per cent of the “rest of the world” respondents were concerned, and had already skipped the organisation's last meeting in Chicago as a result.

The White House, in a statement acknowledging the meeting, contended it was "brief" and said Trump spoke with Putin through Russia's translator.

 

A senior White House official told CNN the discussion was "nearly an hour."

Trump is now attacking his own administration, including Jeff Sessions

 


The President tells New York Times he wouldn’t have hired attorney general had he known he’d recuse himself from Russia inquiry, because it’s ‘extremely unfair’

 

Donald Trump has unleashed an extraordinary barrage of criticism against several of his own top officials, accusing senior members of the Department of Justice (DoJ) of having conflicts of interest and expressing regret that he had appointed Jeff Sessions as US attorney general.

 

In a 50-minute interview with the New York Times, conducted in the Oval Office on Wednesday, Trump delivered a splurge of invective against key players within his own administration that was exceptional even by his own unconventional standards.

In a similar vein, saw an excerpt on the news that he wants the Healthcare Bill through. First he ticked of senators that didn't vote for it and basically said its that or your job. Pretty darn blatant.Then he says no holidays till its on his desk. Yeah, just takes a few days, a week at a stretch?? The clip finished wit the journo saying he has support of his party and both houses, but nothing gets through, thats probably where this bill is a biggie to him. But you need to get it right before you get it through

This was recorded on camera - I saw it today.

 

Extraordinary arrogance, even by The Don standards.

Report: Trump's Lawyers Looking Into Ways to Undermine Russia Investigation

 


A Thursday night piece run by The Washington Post alleged that members of President Donald Trump's legal team were looking into ways to subvert special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

 

According to the Post, the president has been querying his advisers over the logistics of his power to pardon various people close to him - aides, family members, White House staffers.

Trump has even questioned his ability to pardon himself in relation to the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

 

This information ... comes merely one day after the president stated in a New York Times interview that he would never remove Mueller from his position as special counsel.

 

 

CNN : Trump legal team's spokesman resigns

 


Mark Corallo has resigned from his position as spokesman and communications strategist for President Donald Trump's legal team, a senior administration official told CNN Thursday night.
His resignation comes after weeks of simmering tension between the White House and the President's legal team.

Part of Trump's unhinged and often incoherent interview with the NYT:

 

 

So, I was seated next to the wife of Prime Minister Abe [Shinzo Abe of Japan], who I think is a terrific guy, and she’s a terrific woman, but doesn’t speak English.

 

HABERMAN: Like, nothing, right? Like zero?

 

TRUMP: Like, not “hello.”

 

HABERMAN: That must make for an awkward seating.

 

TRUMP: Well, it’s hard, because you know, you’re sitting there for——

 

HABERMAN: Hours.

 

TRUMP: So the dinner was probably an hour and 45 minutes.

 

 

Ooops - she does speak english - rather well:

 

 

But didn't want to say "hello" to the dirty misogynist liar sitting next to her.
