The smut peddler Larry Flynt has offered a $1 million reward for any "scandalous" recordings of Donald Trump. The reward will be paid for "verifiable video footage or audio recordings for use prior to the November 8 election clearly showing Donald Trump engaging in illegal activity or acting in a sexually demeaning or derogatory manner," according to a statement from Flynt's Hustler magazine. Flynt posted similar bounties for evidence of political figures' indiscretions in the past, including in 1998 during Bill Clinton's impeachment.

(CNN)Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump.

President-elect Donald Trump on Monday condemned the assassination of Russia's ambassador to Turkey, calling it a "violation of all rules of civilized order" and saying it was carried out by a "radical Islamic terrorist."

"Today we offer our condolences to the family and loved ones of Russian Ambassador to Turkey Andrei Karlov, who was assassinated by a radical Islamic terrorist," Trump said in a short statement.

Before a single vote was cast, the election was fixed by GOP and Trump operatives.

Starting in 2013 – just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act – a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, created a system to purge 1.1 million Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP–controlled states.

The system, called Crosscheck, is detailed in my Rolling Stone report,
"The GOP's Stealth War on Voters," 8/24/2016.

Crosscheck in action:
Trump victory margin in Michigan: 13,107
Michigan Crosscheck purge list: 449,922

Trump victory margin in Arizona: 85,257
Arizona Crosscheck purge list: 270,824

Trump victory margin in North Carolina: 177,008
North Carolina Crosscheck purge list: 589,393

"How many times do you have to be told the GOP will determine the next POTUS if Trump doesn't make it to the 2020 election? Hillary isn't the problem, your insane obsession in incessantly tying every single substantive criticism of Trump and his unfitness for office is, and this nation stands to suffer why fools selfishly wallow in their own uncontrolled hatred and bile for someone not a part of any way forward from where we are."

Trump was not elected by a majority so let's accept that fact right up front. He was elected purely because Republicans used many ways of suppressing the vote of minorities, especially Crosscheck which disenfranchised 1.1 million voters in swing states. Those disenfranchised voters are not going to accept their plight indefinitely, your party will see the day of retribution. It will not be pretty. It will happen in the next few elections, I can't accurately predict which one but I would say that within ten years the electorate will throw Republicans out of power forever. Hey, only a couple of years ago I told you gay marriage would be legal in every state but you didn't believe me. I told you the Iraq war was a disaster before it started and you called me a traitor. Now, I'm telling you that the agenda of the REpublican Party is going to make the Republican Party an historical failure and that a new oppositional party will have to be created to face the dominant Democrats. The Republicans are going to overreach so far as to make themselves "the enemy of the people." Good name for a play.
