Watchdog alleges Trump campaign illegally concealed $170 million in spending
https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/5 ... n-spending

A nonpartisan watchdog filed a complaint with the Federal Election Committee (FEC) on Tuesday alleging President Trump’s reelection campaign broke the law by “laundering” $170 million in spending in an effort to conceal payments to people close to the Trump family and campaign.

These stories come out all the time and nobody cares. The corruption and lawlessness of the Trump admin is just baked in at this point, and there is nobody left at the federal who is willing to hold them accountable.

The only think that is going to hold them accountable is them getting the boot in November.

Any whistleblower that had anything to do with anything to do with Trump has been replaced.

This is a little reassuring, a take on trump by Niall Ferguson; that’s he’s a populist, the likes of which we’ve seen before before / that the constitution is designed to stop them (although he’s not completely at ease about ..).

It’s 2 years ago so pre virus, where he also advises against impeachment unless the evidence is stone cold.

I was just thinking today what a great ego booster this President of the United States is. Probably everybody here is a better person and would make a better president in almost every way. He's probably a better businessman than I am and for sure a much better liar but I think I've got him beat in almost every other category.

We'd need a definition of a "good businessman" to be sure of that.
