Donald Trump should put his money where his mouth is. The real-estate mogul says he’s worth “in excess” of $10 billion. I think he’s lying, as does pretty much every expert and financial journalist who has looked into the question. Forbes has put his net worth at $4.5 billion. Bloomberg says it’s below $3 billion.

Circuit Judge Barry Williams also acquitted Goodson of manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and misconduct in office in the bench trial.

Brent Scowcroft, who served as National Security Adviser to Presidents George H. W. Bush and Gerald Ford, and who worked in the White House of Presidents Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, said Clinton "brings truly unique experience and perspective to the White House." His endorsement was released hours after the Republican presumptive nominee Donald Trump launched a broad attack on Clinton´s experience, honesty and foreign policy experience in a 40-minute speech. Scowcroft directly rebutted Trump´s claim that Clinton does not have
