Do you know which Dem asked that question?

And did they ask Trump's table or the Honorable Table? Do both sides get to answer the questions? I haven't been able to watch today.

Ivanka was on the board of a bank (with no banking expertise) while her family was receiving loans from the bank. Sounds kosher.https://www.businessinsider.com/signature-bank-ivanka-jared-kushner-michael-cohen-trump-org-2018-7

would likely be unemployed if tRump is not re-elected? Qualifications are not necessary to get a high paying (by taxpayers) job in this administration. Start at the top, and see how intelligent any of them are. Doofus does not want anyone around who could "outshine" him. Let any democratic president try this, and the gop would scream from the rooftops.

maladministration should be extensively investigated. Prosecutions should follow accordingly. The Democratic party can, and should, be the party of law and order. Real laws and real order. Our country was founded as a nation of laws, not men. Democrats can uphold that founding principle.

IS it possible,, just SLIGHTLY possible,
that this is part of the plan to begin with..?
We get to call Bolton,
We want 2-3 of the other trump family rats.
THEY want Biden.
WE say OK to Biden.. ( or not- haven't figured that part out for sure LOL)
They say OK to the crime family....
We sink trump and his fucking nitwit offspring and in-laws.
They get nuthin' on Biden.

We win!!


I dunno, doubt it but,

They won't call the Bidens because it's all fake and they know it.

Jared is tolerated as long as he is useful.
When his usefulness expires, it will become: 'Blame the Jew'.

(and that will be from our own right wingers, not so much from the rest of the world)

Trump had to tell Breitbart to back off on criticizing Jared.

then we nail them both. ivanka used personal e-mail AFTER they passed a law specifically because of Hillary (for bullshit reasons obviously)

and kushner gave intel to the saudi's that lead to kashoggi's murder. he is an accessory and guilty of revealing classified intel. Also the deal to bail him out of his real estate bust at 666 is crooked too.

demmings said we shouldn't talk about the kids of politicians (and kind of blew off/breezed through the question) and moved on to something else.

i thought she took the wrong track, and lost an opportunity. i thought she could have equated more--such as if biden kid is worthy of investigation then doubtlessly the trump klan needs to be investigated and why and how their crap interferes in our politics a hundred times more than hunter, etc. but she didn't

next up: the wh counsel who was back on the ole hunter biden crap

So many narcissists are the product of being anointed the "golden child" in their own upbringing. Likewise, narcissists tend to perpetuate the same poor parenting when they spawn their own monsters.

Ivanka is clearly the "golden child" of that dysfunctional family unit. Therefore, any questioning of her behavior is sure to send the Narcissist-in-Chief off the deep end!

So, sure, let's go there! He's already in about mid-stage dementia. Just needs a little push...

And on the other stuff - Bolton, Parnas, Hyde (the lunatic fantasist), Mulvaney. Just keep on papering with subpoenas. And keep collecting documents. From now until, well. . . forever.
