Trump foreign policy advisor being investigated for ties to Russia

http://www.cnbc.com/2016/09/23/trump-foreign-policy-advisor-reportedly-being-probed-for-ties-to-russia.html

Sorry, my phone is not cooperating with regards to copying text.

please talk me down from this ledge. 1 step fwd, 2 steps back with the media and HRC!

every flipping time trump's obvious skulduggery comes to light, there is a shiny new Clinton story from which to glean.

Synopsis: it appears HRCs tech person allegedly went to Reddit for tips on how to wipe e mails, and a house panel wants to know if, when, and why. It is all a conflicting mess right now, but dammit!



I am not a concern troll: just getting frustrated at this campaign, and it helps to know what we are up against. expect this crap to be front and center tomorrow.

thanks again for allowing the vent.

I'm skeptical, but WAPOs article about the trump fdn is being picked up....

@ press time, it was 3rd down from the top story on google news. here is hoping they stick with it.

even tucker Carlson's RW rag has it.

Pissed off.

1. Trump's "press conference" about his birther comments is an infomercial for his new DC hotel, MSM headlines reflect the birther non reversal and his effort to blame Hillary. Deep in the article we find the fact that he is lying.
2. His son's reasoning for Trump's refusal to release his tax returns is that doing so would invite too much scrutiny. The story is buried on blog sites while MSM ignores it. He will get away with not having to to release them at all.
3. Bondi bribe story dying while "pneumonia-gate" affects the polls.
4. His Flint, Michigan diss/lie about the pastor who shussed him dies, but we know it would have killed Hillary.
5. Making Dwyane Wade's cousin's shooting about him. Nothing but a press chiding.
6. Trump University lawsuit does nothing to thwart his momentum, but it would kill any democrat's chances.
7. Child care program for which he claims credit is really for hotel guests, not employees.
8. Major policy flip flop on immigration does nothing.
9. Advocates no armed protection for Clinton. The story will vanish by Monday, not to mention the fact that the laughable concept of disarming government agents in charge of protecting the president is not the same thing as asking for reasonable gun control measures. MSM ignores Trump's false equivalency.
10. Charges of raping underage girl. Jimmy Fallon musses his hair.
11. Claims he will create 25 million jobs. No one asks how.
12. Lies about what happened on his Mexico visit. Anyone else would still stink of the very idea of lying about a head of state. Not him. Story forgotten.
13. Woman assaulted at Trump rally. Cops let perpetrator go, proving "basket of deplorables" comment has a ring of truth, yet it is still seen as a liability for Clinton.
14. Middle class economic growth story forgotten.
15. Hillary's 3-5 point lead described as a "dead heat tie" by MSM.
16. Newsweek "bombshell" story about Trump's conflicting business interests goes down the tubes.
Add your own.

Please don't ask me what my point is and don't give me any "concern troll" crap. This is legit. I've donated to her campaign and I am doing my part to help. I have a right to be worried and angry. It shouldn't be like this. You have heard it before: He is doing things that would kill any democrat's chances, and the press and public are complicit.

VOTE.

Thanks for the permission to vent.

Screw his health. WHERE ARE HIS FLIPPING TAX RETURNS? n/t



Did Gary Johnson actually ask "What is Aleppo?"

I even know WHERE it is, but I'm not running for POTUS!

Finally! A news outlet is calling Bondi-gate a SCANDAL!

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/09/trump-pam-bondi-scandal-227823

Trump's pay for play scandal intensifies

The swirl of scandal around Donald Trump’s donation to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is intensifying, with the Republican nominee and his aides vigorously pushing back against the idea that he bought the decision by Bondi to not pursue an investigation into his Trump University.

The controversy whipped back up last week when news emerged that Trump paid a $2,500 fine because his foundation improperly donated $25,000 to Bondi’s political election committee in 2013 (tax-exempt charitable groups are not allowed to make political contributions).

*snip*

The Trump campaign is also facing a new crop of editorials, with the Miami Herald saying it’s “puzzling” why Trump’s controversy is not getting “equal billing” to that associated with the Clinton Foundation.

“Unlike the faux scandal over the Clinton institution, there were actual victims here — people who paid good money to Trump University and feel they were duped. Why is Pam Bondi not investigating that?” the Miami Herald editorial board wrote in an item titled, “Donald Trump’s gift to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi deserves a closer look.”

"I try to get four or five lines down as fast as possible so that they would be happy," he told NBC News, explaining that he penned the note as he waited for a limo to pick him up. "In the rush, I think some of those words didn't come out exactly the way they were meant."

Seen on FB.

please forgive if it has been posted already, but I couldn't resist!
