Who remembers when Justice Kennedy took Ivanka under his wing

and tried to teach her about the judicial branch - as we say here 'story coming to bump'.

Late Thursday, the New York Times published an explosive report on the special relationship that Donald Trump and his children have enjoyed over the years with retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy and his children.

According to the report, this relationship allegedly benefitted Trumpís real estate business to the tune of $1 billion in Deutsche Bank loans enabled by Kennedyís son, Justin Kennedy, a top executive at the bank ó at a time when other mainstream banks wouldnít lend Trump money because of his troubled business history.

This relationship also may have helped Trump secure a second vacancy on the Supreme Court with Kennedyís announced retirement. The Times asserts that Trump, his administration and his children, notably Ivanka Trump and Donald Jr., nurtured this relationship once Trump was in office in order to convince Kennedy that his judicial legacy would be in good hands if he chose to step down at the end of the courtís term. Kennedy had long talked about wanting to retire.

3. I vaguely remember it. For the life of me I can't remember why it did not get more attention

Unless, Russiagate took precedence at the time.

Lord help us, Malaise, it's impossible to keep up with everything the bastard does!

6. I think we've reached the point of Scandal Saturation with Trump

The massive levels of corruption and treasonous self-dealing coming from the Trump Crime Organization administration are absolutely breathtaking. Seemingly dozens of new crimes come to light every hour. Geez, who can keep up with it all?
