Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, January 08, 2019

Basic facts about Trump's life, which would have been thoroughly plumbed were he any other presidential candidate, are only starting to be investigated. A recent Patrick Radden Keefe profile of Mark Burnett reveals how the reality television producer turned Trump into a commanding business tycoon. "We walked through the offices and saw chipped furniture," one Apprentice producer recalls in the piece. "We saw a crumbling empire at every turn. Our job was to make it seem otherwise."

Putin vetted him.

You better believe Putin vetted him. Donny Dealmaker was dumb enough to get caught up in Russian mob money laundering and Putin is all to willing to use that evidence to make his little puppet dance for him.

You smart people in the GOP were warned in 2016, you chose to elect a puppet just to poke liberals in the eye.

LMFAO. There are not that many straws left to grasp so hurry up.

Gracie... There are plenty of straws for everyone.

Everyone gets a straw. Jesus would want it that way.

If there were not enough straws then Jesus would just make more.

Praise Jesus. And His Holy Apprentice.

But wasn't he Ordained by the Holy Order of Orange to be a direct Representative of Greed on Earth?

Didn't they give Trump the Holy Baton or something so that he and only he would have a direct line to Gawd? ..and Gawd's Will (which I think is one of His Sons??)?

Anyway, that whole religion thing is very confusing to me and I could be thinking about the Pope. That wizardry kind of guy with the funny hat and the dress and magic slippers and the staff. Wasn't there a cool staff? Don't know. Never been to that level and fought that Boss yet.

Don't know what cool loot he drops.

You need a tinfoil hat to think trump isn't in putin's pocket and it's all just a hoax created by the deep state.

The simplest and most realistic explanation is trump is a con man, traitor, and criminal. In order to doubt that, you have believe in massive secret conspiracies.

Give it up already. Are you exhausting or who? What proof is there of birtherism? Zero

What proof is there of the Russian-Trump Connection? (All confirmed except the last one...)
-His loans come out of two banks known for their ties to organized crime in Russia. Sorry I mean Russian Government...
-One of those banks is even run by one of the Russian "mob". Cypress...
-One of those banks made loans at the request of wealthy Russian "businessmen". Germany...
-He was negotiating for Trump Moscow after he said he wasn't. Guilty plea...
-He had campaign aides in direct contact with Russian to help him. Guilty plea...
-He asked the Russians to hack the Democrats and they did that day...
-His son, lawyer and son-in-law meet with Russians to discuss their help. Sorry I mean "adoptions"... Sorry I mean guilty plea...
-His AG meets with Russian ambassador during the campaign at the convention and "forgets" about it...
-Seychelles meeting with Erik Prince (brother of Betsy DeVos) and Kirill Dmitriev, who is close to Vladimir Putin for Russian connection...
-Russians funnel money to the NRA... guilty plea.
-Pee pee tapes. There is the yet to be verified but where there's Russian Smoke and Trumpsky...

I know I am missing some but I am tired of typing. Our Manchurian Candidate - sorry I mean Russian Candidate - Donalds Trumpsky

Why are you "ignored" all the Time?

Because no one give a rats behind what YOU think.

Obama is not "ignored all the time".

When Obama speaks everyone listens now.

(btw-Listening is not the same as agreeing. (Your momma shoulda done told you that))

Dont forget:

his efforts to end the russian sanctions,
his appointing putin's favorite oil exec as secretary of state,
and the fact that the only part of the republican platform team trump cared changing was the part about opposing putin's actions in ukraine.

Boring. Trump's finances have become the new Obama birth certificate. I'm pretty sure many of us predicted this happening so...*yawn*.

Also, something in this article struck me as odd though. It says the new Dem committee is going to get Trump's tax returns. But finances are not a requirement of becoming POTUS. So for a political forum to obtain access to them, they would have to have due cause and a warrant. Are Dems really going to open Pandora's Box by pressing for a warrant just to obtain tax returns that will only prove/disprove tax evasion? Once you get on that slope, wait until a Dem President is elected and see how hard Reps attack that. At some point, don't people and politicians just need to stop and think about their actions and say enough is enough?

Sorry the con man president hiding his crimes is boring to you.

Obama showed the world his birth certificate. Trump is still hiding his taxes. Do you have enough brain cells to wonder why that is?

Wrong, moose breath! Google is your friend.

In the matter of tax returns, the law could not be more clear (see Code sec. 6103(f)): Upon written request by either the Chairman of either the House Ways and Means Committee or the Senate Finance Committee, the Treasury Secretary "shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request." The Ways and Means Committee may share these tax returns and related information with the full House, assuming there is a legitimate purpose for doing so.

Congress gave itself the right to review any return or return information in 1924, in the aftermath of two controversies. One was the Teapot Dome scandal, where senior officials in the Harding Administration granted public oil field leases in exchange for bribes. The other involved allegations that Treasury Secretary Andrew Mellon continued to own many business interests while serving in government. Some believed the Bureau of Internal Revenue, the precursor to the IRS, showed favoritism to the secretary and his businesses. www.forbes.com
