"Border Lies" by Randy Rainbow

"Great for distracting from your Russian ties,
More insulting than your skin tone..."

Prosecutors Subpoena Records from Trump's Scottish Golf Clubs

Source: Vanity Fair

Maryland prosecutors have subpoenaed a company owned by Donald Trump for records related to his Scottish golf courses, seeking information about the president’s possible violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution. According to The Times of London, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh demanded the financial filings of DJT Holdings LLC—which owns the president’s Scotland resorts, as well as Trump International Hotel in Washington—as part of an investigation into whether profits from Trump’s D.C. hotel were “flowing to the president through his affiliated entities.”

Before taking office, Trump promised to distance himself from his web of business interests, putting sons Don Jr. and Eric in charge. But Trump Sr. has retained his financial ties to his company, and questions about how his presidency may have benefitted his pocketbook have cast a shadow over his administration, home to others —Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke— who’ve allegedly mined their public offices for personal gain. “We are confident that at the end of discovery we will be able to prove our case that President Trump is violating the Constitution’s emoluments clauses, America’s first anti-corruption laws,” Frosh told the Times.

Trump’s D.C. hotel has been the subject of particular scrutiny, as international officials and business leaders seemingly seek to curry favor with the president by frequenting it. But despite Frosh’s confidence, emoluments cases are rare, and challenging to prove. Potentially more worrisome for the president is the possibility that the Maryland subpoena could reveal the unknown source of DJT Holdings’s funding. In a congressional hearing last year, Glenn Simpson, the founder of Fusion GPS—the research firm that hired Christopher Steele to assemble a dossier on Trump’s ties to Russia—intimated the company could be financially linked to foreign powers. “The Irish courses and the Scottish courses . . . don’t, on their face, show Russian involvement, but what they do show is enormous amounts of capital flowing into these projects from unknown sources,” he said. “It’s hundreds of millions of dollars. And these golf course are just, you know, they’re sinks. They don’t actually make any money.”

We're not talking golf clubs as in irons versus woods versus putters here.

Gurl, He Can't Get Shit!

Randy Rainbow's "There is nothing like a wall" video is outrageously funny! And spot on.

Randy, you owe me a new keyboard. As much as the whole video is worth watching, what prompted my biggest laugh was this:

He gets badgered. He gets booed.
He gets heckled coast-to-coast.
He gets valentines from Putin.
And advice from Hitler's ghost.
He gets labeled "Irresponsible, inhuman and unfit."
What can't he get?

Darrel Issa believes Mueller's case against Michael Flynn will be THROWN OUT of court

From the Daily Mail:

- Issa claims the FBI 'tricked' Flynn into not having a lawyer at the 2017 interview;
- US District Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered both the Mueller investigation and Flynn's team to turn over all documents relating to the interview;
- Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations with Russia's then-ambassador to the United States during the presidential transition;
- His lawyers allege FBI bosses pressured him into seeking no counsel before or during the January 2017 interview which ultimately led to his guilty plea;
- Mueller argued that Flynn, a veteran US official, 'does not need to be warned it is a crime to lie to federal agents'.

Thank you for your expert opinion, as expressed to the hard-of-thinking Faux Gnus audience. Only -- in your case -- "expert" had a different definition:
Ex - past, has-been, washed up;
Spurt - a drip under pressure.

OK, Randy Rainbow: you owe me a new iPhone!

I sprayed a perfectly good IPA on my screen when I watched this!

Be warned, fellow DUers: this one is that good!

GOP Jesus video

Spoiler alert: "... because? Her emails!"

Randy Rainbow Rocks It Again!

The FL Governor race just got a whole lot more interesting!

Got this email from Andrew Gillum’s Campaign:

Our public schools are underfunded and our teachers are underpaid. Last year, our state ranked 47th in average instructional staff pay. Teachers are struggling to make ends meet, and our kids and their education are suffering.

That's why I've proposed a bold new plan to legalize and tax recreational marijuana -- so we can invest new revenue into giving our teachers and instructional staff the raise they deserve. We're going to make sure every teacher and support staff member earns at least the national average, reward our veteran teachers for their years of service, and raise the starting salary for new teachers.

A majority of Floridians support it, and states across the country are modernizing their criminal justice systems by legalizing as well. It's time Florida joins them. Chip in $5 now to help make it a reality.

So I donated to his campaign and picked up a yard sign!

Join us, won’t you?
