House Dems Launch New Probe Of Trump Aides Lining His Pockets | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1

 

House Dems are demanding White House documents to investigate if Trump is using his presidency for profit. This comes after VP Pence went 180 miles out of his way to stay at a Trump hotel, and Trump’s strong push to host an international summit at his property. The Root’s Dr. Jason Johnson slams House Dems for taking ‘so long to realize that the President’ is ‘scamming us all,’ by ‘using the United States as a way to funnel money into his personal finances.’

    This is exactly what happens when you have crooked shady characters running the government. They’re not worried about the American people just themselves.

  2. Everyone of tRumps appointments needs to be thoroughly investigated whether its to the Supreme Court, Federal Court, Judiciary including AG down to his GOP Senators, RepubliKKKan Congressmen, Heads of Department. Virtually each & every appointment. People like Betsy Devos, Jeff Sessions, Scott Pruitt, Ben Carson, Stephen reptile Miller, Kavanaugh, William Barr, Ivanka, Jared etc etc. The list is too long but you get the picture. Forensically they need to be looked at with a fine tooth-comb!

    • Johnny Grjalva : Yes Johnny! Starting with Steve Bannon, Hannity, KellyAnne Conway, Stephen Miller & each & every person whoever worked for that clown in any capacity.There are hundreds of these bigger fish corrupt tRump officials who need to pay dearly & the thousands of lesser clowns should be fired en masse.

    • What does it matter they would just be investigated by Republicuck agencies.

    • I’m for him not being allowed to make anymore appointments.

    • J C : Very often when a new gov’t comes in they will reverse whatever policies the previous gov’t instituted as witnessed by SpankyPants attacks on anything Obama done. Spanky & the Repugnant RepubliKKKans have exceeded the norm. They have tried to stack the deck with the appointment of these crony & shady appointments of these nefarious Supreme Court & Federal Court appointments which are for life eg. Kavanaugh, Gorsuch. There is one clown who never prosecuted a single court case in his life. Every appointment of Spanky’s needs to be thoroughly re-investigated.otherwise all is for naught.

  3. He’s stolen it from America. He has to pay it all back.

    • @Warren Holly Actually in reality the world is laughing at the LGBTQ community.

    • @William H that community has never dropp bombs on nobody that community has never sent army’s to nobodies country and killed their families those planes that flew into those buildings were meant for one community the white man

  4. I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t want my tax dollars bailing out Trumps Doral golf course, profits down 70% since presidency. Same goes for his golf course in Ireland.Has been found out Military cargo planes have been forced via pentagon to land in tiny airport that was also on verge of closing closest to his golf course. And military stayed @ golf course which is unheard of @ a cost to tax payers. Military land @ Military bases. Cost of gas to refuel $11 million dollars which is @ much

    higher premium cost than @ military bases. Is this acceptable? I don’t think so.

    • I live in Australia but I’m as infuriated as if he were directly stealing from my bank account.

      I know 90% of trump supporters would still vote for him if he shot someone on 5th avenue as long as they didn’t personally know the victim, but I really think the seed of realisation would be planted in the minds of Trumpers if they found of the amount of tax payer money he’s had Gov employees spend at his properties, as well as over 25 difficult to obtain patents for his and ivanka’s brands in China after he cancelled punitive sanctions on Chinese co. ZTE, and all the foreign officials + their entourages he arranged to have stay at his properties. But I’m probably being naive 🙁

    • It’s disgusting and Pelosi has got to be one of Trump’s biggest protectors. If she was doing her job, impeachment hearings would have already begun.

    • How about ALL his golf trips to the golf courses that he owns where the Secret Service & administration hangers on stay & the American Taxpayer is picking up the multiple tabs on the GOVERNMENT CREDIT CARDS that all the government employees use to pay the EXORBITANT SPECIAL RATES that trump charges the AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.

    • @T G Nothing will change their minds. Not anything.

    Trump couldn’t pull this craziness by himself.. 🇺🇸

  6. It was always all about making money.

  7. Lol @ people thinking he’d actually give up his business to run the country. This was his intention the whole time. To profit from the presidency

    • And- Goliath-Fell | September 7, 2019 at 11:23 AM | Reply

      @Shawn Smith yes- compare the small change of presidential salary with mountain of cash in personal revenue from using his “presidency”- it’s cheap
      PR insurance.

    • @Shawn Smith Another vacant opinion. You are not a logical thinker. BYE FELICIA!

    • He’s getting that back illegally by having pence and others stay at his hotels using public funds. It’s a violation of the emoluments clause.

  8. Trump is the Bernie Madoff of American Presidents. He’s literally running a criminal enterprise out of the white house.

      Please stop shooting red state drugs into your veins before commenting

    • @foxdesignbuild foxdesignbuild 😅🤣😂

    • Obama saved the country when it was teetering on the brink of depression as a result of the Bush administration. Google the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the year 2008(the year before Obama took office) and see how many jobs were being lost every month if you want proof. If you still deny this you’re either a Russian troll as stated previously(and if that’s the case I want to tell you that you might be able to attack the U. S. but at some point it will retaliate and deal you a blow of equal or greater severity) or a gullible fool that follows blindly without even questioning anything coming out of the White House. To place absolute complete faith in someone without ever questioning anything they do or say is foolish which is why the founding fathers created three branches of government to insure the accountability of government officials including the president.

  9. Trump should be prosecuted , fined & jailed for his fleecing of America.

  10. Nothing in the white house is logical. Any person can see through his plan on enriching himself with tax payers’ money. He is stealing our money.

  11. Pence reminds me of Silas in the Devinci Code. A self flagellating priest, who fashions his face to look sooooooo sincere while he defends a monster.

  12. Pence set himself up for impeachment for following through with Trump’s guidance to stay at Trump’s overseas property at taxpayer expense. Both are implicated.

    • RedondoBeach2 why does she need impeaching? Genuine question, which I assume you can provide , verifiable evidence?

    • Alisa Johns you don’t drag the world into a recession, because you don’t like a bi lateral trade deal. You seem vaguely aware, but this going to cost everyone around the World. And America isn’t going to emerge victorious. The Chinese will play a long game, far longer than US consumers will be able to stomach. American citizens paying for a $12 billion bailout & still not being able to make up the shortfall. Brazil moved in to pick up the slack, guess what at a better exchange rate than with the US. Now Bolsonaro is allowing. Brazilian farmers to burn large swathes of the Amazon. Can’t blame the farmers, mostly uneducated people simply trying to earn a good living seeing as they have no other skills. Don’t mean to be rude, but you haven’t the foggiest obviously in regards to Regional, let alone Global Trade. America won’t get back that advantage. Do you realise the number of products that have soy as an integral component? All for some supposed sovereign superiority. Which doesn’t even come into the equation. Russia also signed a deal to supply China. Excellent work Mr PresiDUNCE.

    • Emmett Hardie I understand all that but something really have to done. If there is other ways I would gladly welcome it. I wish they would sit down with the Chinese n figure it out. But this should be a lesson to the U.S to start producing more goods here that we buy. I like buying American made items better then the cheap items from China. Maybe the farmers can grow crops that we eat instead of our fruits n veggies coming from South America. We use to make everything here

    • @Lorric Logging Yet the Republicans had the house and senate and didn’t impeach?.. stfu

    • natalie harless | September 7, 2019 at 12:06 PM | Reply

      Well said and just guess who’s going to be the fall guy for Trump? He IS planning to dump Pence.

    So…. one of his places is within 5 minutes, so it only makes sense, but Pence was better off flying hours away to stay at his other resort?!?

    • Even if Trump’s hotel in DC is “within 5 minutes” it is illegal for him to profit from foreign dignitaries or any of his officials staying/using Trump properties.

      Paul Y
      Yup, I am well aware of this. But I was trying to figure out why he thinks anyone doesn’t see this comparison. He brags one property is very close, so that makes it ideal, and the other one is way across the country, so that makes it okay.
      He must have the stupidest base in history.

  14. So the real question is, how many Republican are spending money at Trump properties to gain Trumps favor?

  15. Oh, those famous words! “It’s not about me.” When has it never been about you, Donald?!

  16. What’s INSANE is that Trump still has American Supporters

  17. Corruption in plain sight, complete failure of the so called checks and balances

  18. Next he’ll be locking up the news reporters for telling the truth..

  19. Agent Orange in the WH is blatantly corrupt because he knows GOP don’t care. He’s narcissistic because it’s his dna.

  20. It’s called embezzlement. Like so many other things he does, it’s also a felony.
