Even Republicans know it stinks.

They can smell it all the way from Scotland.

Their president has been making money off the US Military. In other words, he has been stealing from the US taxpayers. It's difficult to put a pretty face on it. It is so obvious. His golf club went from "in the red" to in the black, because of business brought to it by Donald J Trump. The business was that of the US Military. And how much of the Jet Petroleum revenues did he receive? There is a lot that has been discovered but there is still a lot we do not know. Bet on it.

3. Why do we assume that all financial information will be in the tax returns?

Is everyone honest when it comes to their taxes?

If someone was involved in an illegal transaction, would they put that on their tax returns?

5. If Trump were HONEST, he wouldn't be under AUDIT so much.

In the 47 years my husband and I have filed jointly, we were audited only ONCE! That was in tax year 1990, when my husband grossed over $65,000 in salary from IBM and nearly died from the constant stress.

Butch Sumpinorother would use the expression a couple times a month commuting to DC. That was back in the eighties.

8. Audited for 10 years concurrently, I would add.

He states he is under audit yet no one asks him what year’s tax return is being under audit and why doesn’t he release returns for the years he is not currently under audit. Unless of course, he is subject to continual ongoing concurrent audit of all years.

the presidential salary or not? All of his lies need to be sorted out. He's a liar and a cheat.

11. No matter how you slice it

this is WRONG. Emoluments Clause should be in full throttle on this alone. If he is not stopped, it will get worse. He THINKS he is a king. The military brass should be hauled onto the carpet over this, too. Someone higher up had to give these orders. Time to audit the Pentagon budget, too. So much corruption it boggles the mind. For a man with below average intelligence, he sure finds all the loopholes to the taxpayer cash, doesn't he? While we are distracted with this, Joni Ernst has a wonderful plan to eliminate Social Security!

15. Trump will do anything to not be seen as a loser regarding this property.

Congress investigating Trump over US military trips to Scotland
Conflict of interest concerns over military spending at Prestwick airport and discount offers at president’s resort


Link: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/sep/07/congress-investigating-trump-over-us-military-trips-to-scotland

(snips)
Elijah Cummings, the chairman of the committee, wrote in June to the then acting secretary of defense, Patrick Shanahan, to raise “serious conflict of interest concerns” about Trump making money from military trips to Scotland. According to the news website, the letter said US military spending at Prestwick, the closest airport to the resort, appeared to have “increased substantially since the election”.

It follows reports of the airport offering “cut-price rooms for select passengers and crew”, along with free rounds of golf at Turnberry for US military staff and civilian air crews. The air force confirmed that seven crew from a C-17 aircraft stayed at Turnberry in March.


Both Trump Turnberry and the airport have operated at significant losses in recent years, with the Scottish government putting Prestwick up for sale after taking it into public ownership in 2013.


WARNING: Take cover/Incoming lies.
He will be audacious enough to say he's just being patriotic and trying to save the government's money.....

18. And, not the only time the Con's administration has used this trick

to launder money into crony hands.

Religious fraud Falwell Jr. took a break from paying off pool boys and athletic trainers to sell jet fuel. Just like Jesus!

[link:https://trofire.com/2019/03/29/why-is-liberty-university-selling-jet-fuel-to-the-pentagon/|]

Religious fundamentalist college Liberty University has a subsidiary named Liberty Aviation that has a lucrative government contract to provide jet fuel to the US government. The timing of the signing of the contract is what has drawn the most scrutiny, but the bigger question that we need to be asking is why this “religious” college is in the jet fuel business in the first place.

22. Grifter

Have the US Military go to their bases via Trump's Scotish Golf Course and then charge
the American people for room, board, green's fees, and aviation fuel. Only one thing to
do and that is we have to look @ HRC's emails.
