Obstruction of justice?: Trump's team "wiping their elec devices" in anticipation of subpoenas

https://twitter.com/NormEisen/status/846091368258785281

White House officials and members of Donald Trump’s transition team are reportedly “purging” their electronic devices to avoid being compromised by subpoenas, it has been claimed.

The accusation comes just weeks after government lawyers ordered the President’s aides to preserve any materials that could be connected to Russian interference in the 2016 election.

One legal expert told MSNBC - the channel that first reported the allegations based on testimony from an inside source - there could be “legal ramifications” for staff who destroyed crucial evidence relating to ongoing investigations.

The Trump administration is currently under FBI investigation for possible collusion between Russian operatives and presidential aides.

Just asking: Did Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich meet with the Trump family in Aspen last week?

According to multiple reports via anonymous sources, President Trump was angry that Jared Kushner, a senior advisor to the president, was on vacation in Aspen while the American Health Care Act (AHCA) faltered in Congress. A White House official publicly denied these claims.

Either way, the Trump family vacation in Aspen was no minor outing. In 2015, Ivanka described it as a family tradition. Jared Kushner certainly doesn’t have a reputation for being a slacker, and the battle in Washington over ‘Trumpcare’ had been raging for days.

Ivanka, Eric, Lara and Donald Trump Jr. traveled to Aspen on Saturday, March 18. Jared Kushner joined his family in Aspen, Colorado (flying from Washington, D.C. in the famous Trump family Boeing 757) on the the same day that Roman Abramovich’s plane arrived in Colorado, from Moscow.

Roman Abramovich, a powerful Russian oligarch and associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin, owns property in Aspen. Roman’s wife, Dasha Zhukova, is a close friend of Ivanka Trump. She was a guest of Ivanka at Trump’s inauguration.

The nearest airport to Aspen that can safely handle an aircraft as large as the Trump 757 is 32 miles away, in Eagle, Colorado. Abramovich’s 767 jet is larger and even more limited to large airports with longer runways and safer approaches. His aircraft landed in Denver, 125 miles away from Aspen.

The story doesn't end there.

On Thursday, March 20, Abramovich’s plane flew to the northern Lesser Antilles, a group of islands in the Caribbean Sea. On the same day, two aircraft linked to Michael Cohen did the same – one via Palm Beach, Florida, home of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. It’s important to note that Caribbean nations are famous for their tax haven status, and it’s possible that these trips are purely coincidental.

Abramovich’s aircraft landed in St. Maarten, while two smaller Beauty Central LLC-owned Gulfstream jets landed in Anguilla (one of which stopped in Palm Beach, first.) St. Maarten, St. Martin, St. Barth and Anguilla are nearly the same destination. The islands lie several miles apart and have close economic and social ties. St. Maarten (formerly Dutch) and St. Martin (formerly French) are actually two sides of the same island. Each island has an airport, but they differ in their size and ability to serve large aircraft.

Apparently, Trey Gowdy has never heard of the Benghazi hearings.

America: so sick of all the winning.

Trump has cost the US travel industry $185m in lost revenue, with significant drop in flight searche

Interest in travel to the US has “fallen off a cliff” since Donald Trump’s election, according to travel companies who have reported a significant drop in flight searches and bookings since his inauguration and controversial travel ban.

Data released this week by travel search engine Kayak reported a 58% decline in searches for flights to Tampa and Orlando from the UK, and a 52% decline in searches for Miami. Searches for San Diego were also down 43%, Las Vegas by 36% and Los Angeles 32%.

Though flight prices are holding firm (they usually take weeks rather than days to adjust to consumer trends), Kayak has identified a knock-on effect on average hotel prices. It found prices in Las Vegas are down by 39% and New York City by 32%.

It is the latest in a string of reports from the travel industry that suggests a “Trump slump”, with the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) estimating that since being elected President Trump has cost the US travel industry $185m in lost revenue.

All the reasons to believe Flynn has flipped...

Asked spokesman for Flynn if he is cooperating w/the FBI. He said he is not responding. Not denying or confirming, I asked. "Not responding"
