Guy who got elected by insisting he see emails organizing Chelsea's wedding doesn't want evidence of his banking fraud made public.

I can’t help but feel that the president’s private lawyers sound a little anxious. https://t.co/TqSNUTRV3D

I'm getting the feeling that Trump's tax returns aren't under audit and he just really doesn't want anyone to see what he's been up to. https://t.co/Mu5niM4mPG

Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to release Deutsche Bank’s Trump data that you’ve probably had for years.

Putin’s a traditionalist, after all. And let’s be honest, Trump is last cycle’s Big Disrupter, all the gilt has worn off his grift. Especially when there’s an up-and-coming new
cult political team pushing some very foreign-interference-friendly projects…
That BERN App worries me not least because of the way the Wilmerites target and harass people. People’s info will be entered without their knowledge or consent, an outrageously irresponsible invasion of privacy. I worry about people like my sister who isn’t very computer savvy if one of the Wilmerites in our family enters info about her political leanings.
This isn’t even shocking anymore. If you elect a criminal, of course he’s going to do all he can to hide his sleaziness from the public. Hence his refusal to turn over his tax returns. Trump is above the law and flaunts it in our faces every single day.
Is anyone else amused by the pearl-clutching about ‘information going back decades’? Can you say ‘Whitewater’? Can you say ‘Rose Law Firm’? I knew that you could…
They demanded a 1961 birth certificate, so I am willing to refrain from asking for anything older than that.
Follow the money isn’t merely a trite catchphrase.
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
Openly handing his voter file to Putin – “Russia if you can hear me, run millions of ads targeting my voters on my behalf. I’m sure you will be rewarded.”
His Orangeness would certainly be singing a different tune on foreign interference if it was somebody else getting all the love (i.e. Bernie)…
Guess decades of getting away with it all including stealing the presidency is more to systemic failures all around than due to the thug’s shenanigans.
Didn’t Deutsche already turn over the records to the state of NY? I assume that if the trumps didn’t stop that, they can’t stop a legitimate investigation by congress.
So his children and spouses (plural) are only tangentially connected to him. Uh huh.
All I keep thinking every time he whines that the Trump Org finances are off limits is, “they made Carter divest a peanut farm. What made you think you could refuse to do similar without consequence, dumbass?”
As we used to note when I worked on Wall St., Deutsche Bank is the dirtiest sheet in the laundry. No surprise that Cornholio used them. They deserve each other, and I hope they both go down with a splat.
Recalling the old law and order chestnut “If you haven’t done anything wrong, you have nothing to hide”
Reads more like a press release than a pleading.
I don’t think it states a claim.
Can someone explain how BERN is any different than VAN? Or, really, any database of donors and volunteers from any campaign?
