  1. November of last year, Trump was ordered by a judge to pay $2 m in damages for illegally using funds intended for charity to boost his 2016 presidential election campaign.

    Trump had to admit to personally misusing the money, according to the New York’s attorney general office, despite having previously denied any wrongdoing.

    The fine adds to several other investigations into allegations that he is using public office for self-enrichment.

    The lawsuit last year states that Trump, and his three money grubbing useless children – Don Jr, Ivanka and Eric – broke campaign finance laws in 2016 by using Trump Foundation’s tax-exempt status “as little more than a checkbook to serve Trump’s business and political interests.
    Trump and his talentless children, had violated their fiduciary duties as officers and directors of the now-shuttered Trump Foundation. As a result of that failure, charitable dollars — consistently and over many years — often benefited Trump rather than the causes he repeatedly claimed he supports.

    There was “a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation – including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more,” the suit claimed.

    In the agreements, Trump admitted to misusing funds from the foundation, which he dissolved last year, including to pay for a portrait himself that cost $10,000. He also agreed to pay back $11,525 he spent on sports memorabilia and champagne at a charity gala.
    Trump also directed the foundation to use money for charity to buy a Tim Tebow helmet for himself, and to settle a couple of lawsuits.

    Trump also admitted in the agreements to directing that $100,000 in foundation money be used to settle legal claims over an 80-foot flagpole he had built at his Mar-a-Lago resort, instead of paying the expense out of his own pocket.

    In addition, the charity foundation paid $158,000 to resolve a lawsuit over a prize for a hole-in-one contest at a Trump-owned golf course, and $5,000 for ads promoting Trump’s hotels in the programs for charitable events. Trump admitted these transactions were also improper.
    But let’s be honest, what Trump did wasn’t just improper, it was downright criminal and reprehensible.

      @Crystal Giddens where
      fox news=trump tv. North korea style

    • @Crystal Giddens Must be quite the low-life if you have to look up to trump. Keep your head in the sand, all your denial won’t change reality.

      @Crystal Giddens You’re being willfully ignorant. Or, maybe Fox News didn’t cover any DJT’S theft. Dishonest Donny is a thief, the worst kind of thief, the kind that steals from charity. He’s banned for life from having a foundation again. Courts ordered corrupt Donny to repay the $2 Million he stole from charity. Maybe you should start looking out for yourself instead of Deceitful Donny. ISAIAH 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil.

    • If Obama had even done ONE of these ….GUM JORDAN..TREY GOWDY….AND ALL THE FAKE FAKE FAKE GOP would be using everything they could to remove him……
      TRUMPERS PANTIES IN A BUNCH!!!!!!!!!

  2. LOCK HIM UP!!!

    • Let’s see…there is no Bolton book out. Anonymous sources from the Dems turn out to be bombs, not bombshells….next

    • check out Profiles in Corruption by Peter Schweizer.

    • Bucky Pinata Jesus Christ dude. Just looking at the channels you’ve subbed to I have to ask: how many alien radio stations can you pick up with that ridiculously sized tin foil hat on??
      And you’re right, so many bombs that detonated on top of Manafort, Flynn, Parnas, and the other dozens of Trump appointees that have been indicted and charged.

  3. The republicans are scared kids afraid of daddy Trump, who in turn only shuts up when Putin is in the room.

  4. “Before mass leaders seize the power to fit reality to their lies, their propaganda is marked by its extreme contempt for facts as such, for in their opinion fact depends entirely on the power of man who can fabricate it.”
    ― Hannah Arendt, The Origins of Totalitarianism 1951

  5. A Real Patriot: conscience to stand and speak loudly only the truth even when threatened by #headonthepike

  6. NO Witnesses and No Eveidence! Certainly the acts of someone who is innocent!

    First trial in history where the facts admitted by the criminal dont matter.. sham trial.

  8. The lies of gop and trump have warped the minds of so many sad pathetic souls. Very disturbing!!!

  9. If Trump deny it there is a 100% chance that its true.

    • @Crimdor The Trump lawyers is claiming that there is not enough evidence to impeach Trump but doesn’t want any witness to give their testimony in the Senate. Bolton bombshell just drop shouldn’t the Republican want him to testify and ask him if his claim is true?

    • tonykeo83 – it’s not their job! Democrats where aware of Bolton’s proximity to the issue and he flipping resigned over it. Democrats are playing stupid games and going around the law.

    • @Crimdor LOL you think the Democrat is playing game and going around the law. Trump is the one who is blocking witness to come testify in the House Impeachment inquiry. The Democrat did not leak Bolton transcript book that Bolton send to the White House to see if there was any sensitive information that should be cut from the book. Trump own White House leak it.

    • @Crimdor 16000 lies in 3 short years
      how can you believe anything that passes his lips?

      Crimdor
      Did you learn how to diagnose mental illness playing video games or paint ball? Bet you have mad skills, how many tables can you bus in an hour?

  10. All of the documents!
    All of the witnesses!!
    America demands it!

    History will not look kindly upon Republicans for enabling the hostile takeover of the United States of America.

  12. Bill Cospy got prosecuted by testimonies of  women with old news ; who may have or not had a motive ..And you mean to tell me that these conservatives cannot rely on all these government officials testimony???

  13. Republicans: you have no proof
    Democrats: here is proof
    Republicans: democrats make fake proof
    Democrats: prove it
    Republicans: I can’t. I just think it’s fake because it doesn’t fit what I believe.

    Wishful thinking. They all know he’s guilty, doesn’t matter how much evidence against him

  15. Simple why the Castrati Senators will NOT want Bolton to be there as a witness. He will tell the truth– as the rest of the thinking and sane world knows.

  16. GOP has to decide which is more important to them, many of their jobs in the Senate or Donald.

  17. ok – Americans’ it time for all of us to “hit the streets” Hong Kong style
    PROTEST time !! Let the people decide – send a clear message

    • Mike Johnson Schiff and the Democrats do not want the people to decide. They are very afraid to let the people vote in November. Democrats are the party of tyranny.

      What country are you from comrade?

  18. “This is a gamechanger”
    GOP: “How can this be a game changer when we are going to ignore it and disparage it for the narrative we’ve already created, just like all the other evidence??”

    • Why do Democrats ignore actual evidence in favor of their temper tantrum feelings? All the crimes have been committed by Democrats. Trump’s only crime is winning an election while Republican. That means that the only reason you don’t like Trump is that he is a Republican. Guess what. The reason I like Trump is that at least he’s not a KKK Democrat. Just sayin’

    • @KentBalzer ya know, I cant remember when your dems solicited a foreign power for help in an election
      perhaps you can jog my memory, on that?

    • @KentBalzer i hope YOU and your love one’s don’t get really Sick…paying those Medical bills will put you back to the Hospital…..Stupid!

  19. And t’rump’s lawyers just gonna pretend this didn’t happen. 🤔🤣🤣🤣

  20. Kiling one person its like killing all Human beings!
    Dictator Trump you killed a lot of people
    Soon or later you will respond to God and court!!!
