Oh Wow! Trumps Foundation gave out more $$$ than they took in & they have the nerve to charge him. He also raised millions for Children's Hospitals ???? ....What about the corrupt Clinton Foundation which took 1/2 million $$$ from Russia for speech??? I don't blame him for moving to Florida.

I guess no good deed of Trump goes unpunished. The mere fact that the people who organized the veteran's fund raiser also happened to work on the Trump campaign magically made this "political" even though nothing political occurred at the event. Rather than fighting this ridiculous charge Trump just folded and distributed everything and more from his personal funds to several charities. If the judge wants to really tackle and interesting abuse of charitable organizations maybe she could turn her attention the the Clinton Foundation. How many millions were "donated" to the Clinton's by well-heeled domestic and foreign backers so they could dole out the proceeds to fraudulent projects around the world that mostly lined the pockets of their political friends?

The Clintons manipulation of the Haitian relief funds should be next on this judges agenda. And if this thing that PDT is supposed to have done didn't take place in NY, I'd tell the. judge to pound sand. I hope, after the 2020 elections, when the Republicans control everything, they start payback. A lot of these black robed tyrants need to be impeached.

HPSCI ranking member Devin Nunes has sent a letter to HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff formally requesting his testimony prior to the public impeachment hearings next week.On its face this might seem like a stunt; and it might indeed be dismissed by Adam Schiff; however, at the heart of the issue is something quite serious and quite factual. There is mounting evidence the entirety of the Pelosi, Lawfare-Schiff proceeding is a collaborative event that includes the coordination with a CIA ‘whistleblower’.Specifically because the issues in/around the originating ‘whistleblower’ have become a risk to the effort, and in a complete reversal from the original premise,

The Daily Caller spoke with over 15 senators about the USMCA who all shared their views on the future of the agreement. The USMCA, a change from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), is a bipartisan trade agreement that some think could benefit America’s farmers, ranchers, businesses, and workers.

Under Mr. Buttigieg’s plan, families of college students that earn up to $100,000 wouldn’t pay any public college tuition. Those making between $100,000 and $150,000 would receive reduced tuition benefits. That’s a contrast to proposals from 2020 candidates such as Sens.

He did this in front of foreign diplomats, constantly. No wonder he remained an Obama loyalist and has tried to undercut President Trump. After all, Obama considered himself first and foremost "a citizen of the world" and did not find anything exceptional in America in and of itself. President Trump loves America and is representative of a patriotic heartland mindset. After all, Trump believes in America first.
