Russian Probe: Proven collusion between Manafort and Kilimnik [and don’t be shocked, it was bound to come out eventually]

The Trump Campaign of 2016 was a house filled with Russian associates and meeting Russian individuals. They held meetings and people who are connected to Kremlin, Moscow and GRU. There was so many meetings from Trump Associates and leaders within the Trump Campaign. Therefore, the latest news from the U.S. Treasury finally let the cat out of the bag.

They are focusing on Konstantin Kilimnik who was associated and worked close with Paul Manafort and Richard Gates. These two were also parts of the Trump Campaign and Gates was also a part of the Trump Transition Team into the White House in 2016. This is why this news is important.

First I will drop the news from the U.S. Treasury. Second is some more context from U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee Report from 2020 and the third is the charges put on Manafort in 2018. This is just to prove the close connection between the fellas.

U.S. Treasury charges 2021:

Konstantin Kilimnik (Kilimnik) is a Russian and Ukrainian political consultant and known Russian Intelligence Services agent implementing influence operations on their behalf. During the 2016 U.S. presidential election campaign, Kilimnik provided the Russian Intelligence Services with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy. Additionally, Kilimnik sought to promote the narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In 2018, Kilimnik was indicted on charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice regarding unregistered lobbying work. Kilimnik has also sought to assist designated former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. At Yanukovych’s direction, Kilimnik sought to institute a plan that would return Yanukovych to power in Ukraine” (U.S. Treasury – ‘Treasury Escalates Sanctions Against the Russian Government’s Attempts to Influence U.S. Elections’ 15.04.2021).

U.S. Committee Russia Probe Report oversight into Manafort:

Paul Manafort is a former lobbyist and political consultant with ties to numerous foreign politicians and businessmen, most notably in Russia and Ukraine. In March 2016, Manafort joined the Trump Campaign as convention manager. By May 2016, then-Candidate Trump officially elevated Manafort to be the Campaign’s chairman and chief strategist. On August 19, 2016, following press articles related to his past-work in Ukraine for a pro-Russia political party headed by former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, Manafort resigned from the Trump Campaign” (…) “In numerous occasions over the course of his time on the Trump Campaign, Manafort sought to secretly share internal Campaign information with Kilimnik. Gates, who served as Manafort’ s deputy on the Campaign, aided Manafort in this effort. Manafort communicated electronically with Kilimnik and met Kilimnik in person twice while serving on the Trump Campaign. Manafort briefed Kilimnik on sensitive Campaign polling data and the Campaign’s strategy for beating Hiliary Clinton. At Manafort’s direction, Gates used an encrypted messaging application to send additional Campaign polling data to Kilimnik” (U.S. Senate Select Intelligence Report on Russian Interference in the 2016 Elections, August 2020)

Charges and Connection with Kiliminik:

““In furtherance of the scheme, from 2006 until 2014, both dates being approximate and inclusive, MANAFORT, with the assistance of Gates, KILIMNIK, and others, engaged in a multimillion dollar lobbying campaign in the United States at the direction of Yanukovych, the Party of Regions, and the Government of Ukraine. MANAFORT did so without registering and providing the disclosures required by law” (2018).

The U.S. Treasury is stating in the collusion between the Trump Campaign and Ukraine/Russian partners. As Kilimnik is in connection with Kremlin. He had worked with the Russian Friendly Political Parties in Kiev and also been supported of Moscow friendly President in the past. Therefore, giving him intel and documents of sensitive nature. This is now the reasons for why the U.S. sanctioned Russian for interference in their elections.

The reason why it’s coming out now? Well, there is no “executive privilege” anymore and ex-President Trump cannot stonewall the process or interfere in the investigation. While he and his allies did withhold documents and didn’t want to testify even. This is why the U.S. Special Counsel or Intelligence Committee could get all information of the actions made in time. As the President or his allies was interested in giving it. They tried to block or make it impossible to get to the bottom of it.

Now, there will be drip-drops of information on this. As the U.S. Treasury and other agencies might uncover more of the heinous crimes. The Trump Campaign and such never did vet Paul Manafort, but appointed him still as the Campaign Chairman. He become the second one after Cory Lewandowski. Clearly, Manafort found ways to be useful, but also profit from his time there. That he could by the connections he had in Kiev and Moscow. Which he had earned millions of dollars on in the past.

Manafort clearly helped and used this time for this and withheld this communications from the authorities. Just like he had held it a secret and not been registered as a Foreign Agent for them previously either. He clearly was interested in doing this and finds way to still make money out of it.

Manafort is pardoned by Trump, but the extent and what sort of pardon doesn’t stop new prosecution of him or new charges. They maybe taken on state level instead of federally and then he can be sentenced again. Because, he has already been a felon and could be severely punished this time around for collusion and conspiring with an enemy. That would be a serious charge and could face a long time in prison.

People cannot say that the Russian thing is a hoax, when all the evidence is there and the proof is official. The U.S. Treasury, one arm of the government is stating it and Kilimnik worked directly with Manafort. Peace.

Russian Probe: If your innocent why pardoning the team?

President Donald J. Trump granted 15 individuals pardons yesterday. This is a clemency from Federal Prosecution and crimes. However, the President doesn’t have powers to circumvent state prosecution or investigations into people. Therefore, the limit is still there.

There is speculation about how these pardons was done… but most likely he traded the cards with several of donors and gave way to some, as they are his team and he doesn’t want them to rat him out after his time in office.

However, when your pardoning people like George Papadopoulos and Alexander Van Der Zwaan. These are not the most prolific people in the Trump Campaign Team of 2016. These was implicated in the collusion with Russia. The supposed “hoax” the President that has called it. Dismissed the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the whole investigation. Where the President have blocked all witnesses and Congress investigation into it. They have made it impossible to dig into the truth.

These two was part of the Trump Team and they lied, they obstructed justice and the Trump Campaign even said their works was unimportant at one time. I remember Papadopoulos was called a “coffee boy” and a man serving coffee shouldn’t need a pardon. He should instead get some cream to make the coffee tolerable for more people.

So, if these people was innocent. Then they wouldn’t need to get pardoned, but appeal their cases and get it thrown out of courts. Just like all the election petitions in 2020. The Trump Campaign only shows that the US is broken system. Where the crooks can work together and if one of them get into office. The man in-charge can bail them out of the legal jeopardy they got into.

That these two are getting off the hook. Just shows what Trump intends to do. He has already helped his long term ally Roger Stone. There will be others who gets the help of the President. Especially now in the final days of his reign. This man will give clemency to the ones who was loyal to him. We can expect others being picked out and getting pardons. This being Paul Manafort or several others who was indicted. The man has already saved Gen. Michael Flynn. So, there is no reason for him to not save the whole gang.

What we can learn from this? Well, that foreign interference and working with foreigners in an election is cool if your Republican and Trump. However, the GOP and Trump Stans will die on this hill. We cannot expect anything else by people who eating the words of Newsmax, OAN and Fox News. Even Qanon is their voices of reason and that is Cult45 all over it. These folks will not care that the American Republic is traded for gold and licenses deals by their dear leader. No, they are following Trump blindly. So, that he worked with Russia to win is fine. The ones who are against communists and the reds, but can get help from Moscow. The ironies are so enriching from the outside.

Presidency of Trump has achieved a lot. There is a lot of damages to cover and fix for the administration. That the Department of Justice have been weaponized and therefore the up-coming investigations needs to be partisan and independent. There is a need see it and what to expect.

Trump clearly is a crony capitalist and a man who easily get corrupted. That is why he needs others to cover-up for him. Trump needs his allies, especially after he lost all his leverage of office. The Donald needs his former team to be on his side. As there are investigations into him and his businesses. He will be in court and these cases will be moved further. His executive privilege will be history. Therefore, he doesn’t need Papadopoulos and Van Der Zwaan has to be on his side. So, they will not tell more on him or expose him more. The man cannot afford that. Well, the man isn’t paying taxes. So, there is not that much he really can afford. The man has everything to loose and that’s why his few allies are bailed out and getting clemency. Though by doing that. He shows that the Trump Campaign was far from innocent. Because, if they needed pardons then they weren’t innocent at all. Peace.

Opinion: The Trump Campaign miss the WikiLeaks

It is getting closer to November and the final days of the campaign. We are in the middle of October 2020 and the race is stagnating. The President and his party is sort of scrambling. They are trying to dignify things, but it’s not working. Only the hard-liners, the love-birds of the President is still on the train. The moderates, the libertarians and other conservatives have already endorsed Joe Biden the opponent.

Donald J. Trump and his campaign last time had not only the help of right-wing media. It had help of former fridge media houses, such as Breitbart and others. Who all went up and became well-known. These Alt-Right web-pages stirred the controversy and also racism, which have been proven with the policies made in the term of this Presidency.

Therefore, Trump had influential backers with him. This was also the help of Cambridge Analytica and WikiLeaks. These dropped information and social media campaigns, which targeted the public. To narrow the space of the other candidates and change the narratives of them. This by getting bots to run Facebook groups and so fourth. The Trump Campaign had big game on these platforms and was able to manufacture consent for it. Because, the new-cycles was controlled by these ways of spreading information.

That is the sort of way it hasn’t worked as well this time around. Because, if it was to work like last time. There would have been plenty of headlines, questioning the health of Biden and his history. Where they would question his foundation, his businesses and his family. Alas, that isn’t the case. It is only small pieces of it, but not to the extent of last time.

Trump and his Campaign Team had the backers of WikiLeaks. They dropped vital emails, documents and internal documents of the Democratic Party. Others like Cozy Bear and Guccifer 2.0. These dropped intel and weaponized documents to hit the Democratic Party directly. These things made it harder for the Clinton Campaign. As they had to defend that and also wiggle with the direct attacks.

This is the Trump Campaign lacking in 2020. They don’t have foreign backers who are leaking information. All of this was giving a helping hand. To ensure the image and the idea of Trump presidency. He didn’t get the leaks, the hacking and questionable intelligence released to that extent. Yes, there was one dossier made by a former agent. However, that only did a little damage, compared to the ones dropped steadily on WikiLeaks. That was hurting Clinton non-stop.

That is why the Trump Campaign is struggling. Not only because of the incompetence and lack of strategy, but also because they have no real dirt on Biden. The Trump Campaign cannot assault and doesn’t have the support of foreign hackers. Who are willing to use all sort of techniques to get information and drop it. This is why the Trump Campaign haven’t the steam as it did in 2016.

Trump Campaign needs a WikiLeaks, it cannot run on slogans and on the charisma of the President. Especially, when he cannot listen to advice and do the right thing. He rather spill conspiracies and misuse of force. Instead, of actually do proper politicking.

The Trump Campaign cannot even sell a simple idea. They need someone drop dirt on the opponents. Because, they have so little to trade. It is that simplistic. The US President needs a Assange to save his ass. However, I don’t think there is time or someone willing to do so.

We know that Trump easily works with fo

reigners to get ahead. He would do that again. For one simple reason: He needs it! Peace.

All the President’s Men: Flynn & Stone “Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free-Card”

I know that the President isn’t the Monopoly Man, but his dealing out “Get-Out-Jail-Free-Card” like him in real life. There is no indication that rule of law matters, neither is the ideal of everyone is equal before the law. The United States of America is a broken, failure of a state. Where voting purge, where police brutality and identity politics are ordinary features.

This compelled with the compromised Department of Justice. Which is a weaponized tool of the White House. Instead of being an independent organization respecting and enforcing the codes of law. That is dream and not the reality in Trump’s America.

That is why the Department of Justice and Attorney General William Barr is willing to trade all honesty, all equal treatment and enforcing it accordingly to protocol. We are seeing that…

That train has left and there is apparently no return of it in sight. The President and his Attorney General is blatant in disregard to the rule of law and enforcing towards their own. This being people who has pleaded guilty, been unregistered foreign agents and so fourth. They are apparently allowed to solicit information during campaigns with foreign actors, which they later lied about meeting. It doesn’t matter where it is from, but the conspiracy to do so for the benefit of a candidate. Should be a thing that is illegal and treated that way. However, since these people did it for the current day President. They can get off the hook.

This is okay, that they are conspiring with foreign powers and using that information to beat their opposition. As later investigation see they are lying to congress and to the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI). If a random bloke from any Ville or Port would do this. Then they would linger in jail like Reality Winner and other leakers. Whistleblowers are prosecuted and arraigned in court.

Stone is getting a pleasant amount of time behind bars for his relationship with the President. The same can be said about Flynn. We can rest assure that the other ones whose associated with the President will get help or a get out of jail free-card. Maybe not Michael Cohen, his former personal lawyer, but expect others to suddenly get out of the penitentiary like Paul Manafort.

The Republican’s can lie to themselves. They can cheat themselves and claim to be the party of rule of law. However, its hard to sell: when you give people who conspired against the state freedom. That is basic … very simple to understand and should be common sense. This is giving immunity to people by giving grace, freedom and extended liberty to the ones who is connected to the President. They can steal, graft and conspire against the state. This they can do for the simple reason: They are buddies and friends of the President.

This are the legal precedence of the United States. The US can never tell dictators that they cannot shield their graft or their criminal friends. For the same reason as the US is now shielding the friends of the President. The US is now allowing illegal activity being done by associates of the President. They got a special number at the Department of Justice. The Trump Administration is directing the Department to them favours. That is really the sickening state of the US.

This is what tyrants and dictators do. They are allowing associates eat, rule with impunity and get away with it. That’s for the same as the associates of Trump. If you know, now you know. The ones showing loyalty to the President. Can get a better treatment and less of stint in jail. That is how corrupt the President is and to what extent he goes. He makes dictators proud for his actions. Since he acts just like they would. However, if they did the same. The US would condemn and even sanction them. Nevertheless, the US will not get any retorts for acting like this. Peace.

Opinion: Stone’s special treatment revealed

Today’s statement by Assistant United States Attorney Aaron S. J. Zelinsky to the House Judiciary Committee was very telling. This was a powerful statement and a needed one. Not that its shocking that an associate of the President would get special treatment. Especially, when we are discussing the hack, the lackey and buddy of the President, Roger Stone. We saw how it went down in Court, but now one of the men writing the sentencing memo. Aaron explains how it happened and he exposed what they did to change the memo.

The President and team is busy obstructing justice, ensuring safe-guard to their men and stopping prosecution of people associated with the President. As that is happening, there are on-going investigations. The House of Representatives are looking into the lenient treatment of Trump associate, campaign aide and Nixonian relic Stone.

What was striking in the statement today was this: “What I heard – repeatedly – was that Roger Stone was being treated differently from any other defendant because of his relationship to the President” (Zelinsky, 23.06.2020).

That says everything, that if your associated or a buddy of the President then you have an advantage. You can break the law, you can do things that are illegal, but you deserve better treatment, because of your association. That is direct corrupt behaviour, not equal justice under the law, but dependent on the relations you have to the Head of State. That is worthy of a Banana Republic, of a tin-pot dictator and well-equipped tyrant.

Zelinsky continued: “I was also told that the acting U.S. Attorney was giving Stone such unprecedentedly favorable treatment because he was “afraid of the President.” (Zelinsky, 23.06.2020). A civil servant, an attorney should work independent from the President, as the attorney should work in accordance with the law and the legal precedence within any given case. It shouldn’t be on merit of the person involved nor the relations the accused has with the head of state. That is just absurd. However, that is how the United States has sunk during the Trump Presidency.

What really proves the outrageous behaviour of the Trump Presidency pressure on the Stone case is this, as the Attorneys first made a memo for sentencing and later someone revised to be favourably to the crony of the President. Just take a look:

Next, the government calculated that Stone received three (3) additional levels because he successfully blocked HPSCI from ever learning about Corsi, his messages and Stone’s many contacts with the Trump Campaign. Stone received an additional two (2) levels for lying to the judge under oath regarding the photo of her with the crosshairs. Two (2) more levels were added because Stone’s efforts to obstruct were extensive in scope. And eight (8) levels were added because Stone threatened to cause physical injury or property damage in order to obstruct justice – the threats to harm Credico. Taken together, these enhancements resulted in a total offense level of 29 points. Since Stone was a first time offender, this corresponded to a Guidelines range of 87-108 months” (Zelinsky, 23.06.2020).

That evening, the Department filed a new memorandum seeking a substantially lower sentence for Stone. No line AUSA signed the filing—which is also something that is virtually unprecedented. The new filing stated that the first memo did not “accurately reflect” the views of the Department of Justice. This new memo muddled the analysis of the appropriate Guidelines range in ways that were contrary to the record and in conflict with Department policy” (Zelinsky, 23.06.2020).

We can see here how things goes and how it benefited the cronies. How it simply rigged the sentencing memo and changed the amount of time for the same crime. They did this deliberately and with full knowledge of why they did it. It was all to serve a man of the President and give him less of time. Even with the DoJ and the AUSA had given a specific amount of time for the acts conducted by Stone.

This proves to what extent the President goes to shield his men and allies. When he does this to Stone and in such a public display. What does he do behind closed doors and in secret? That is what is worrying, as he has had over three years in office and continues to obstruct justice without any consideration with the rule of law. The only thing that matters is himself and his allies. The rest can suffer. Peace.

U.S. House Judiciary Committee starts a Massive Probe into Trump & his associates!

See, ya are what ya are in this world. That’s either one of two things: Either you’re somebody, or you ain’t nobody”.- Frank Lucas

Today is a really special day in Trump World, as the U.S. House Judiciary Committee has sent letters and requested documents into the investigation in President Trump and his associates. No, I am not releasing a list of family and friends of the U.S. President today. No, this is a magnificent list of the ones that has up to 18th March 2019 to deliver documents to the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives. So, that they can pursuit their investigation into the possible collusion and electoral violations done by the Trump Administration and Campaign Team. That is why 81 individuals/organizations been hit with this.

This is a rare day, when so many people in and around the President have been hit with the letters and document requests, that digs into the financial contributions, financial ties with Russia, with all communications of such and so on. It is really digging deep.

As the Document Request states:
“Please produce the documents set forth in Schedule A, provided, however, that in order to
facilitate production of documents on an expedited basis, you may limit your production at this time to documents you furnished at any time after November 8, 2016 to: (a) the Special Counsel’s Office established by Department of Justice Order No. 3915-2017 (May 17, 2017); (b) the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (“SDNY”); (c) any other federal or state regulatory and/or law enforcement agency; (d) any congressional committee; or (e) in civil or other litigation. This includes but is not limited to documents that were voluntarily provided, produced under compulsion, or seized. Instructions for producing documents appear in Schedule B, and definitions appear in Schedule C” (Document Request – Schedule A, 04.03.2019).

The various people and organization get various of different arraigned questions to produce set of documents, depending on their closeness to the President and the known meetings between the Trump Campaign/Organization/Transition and Presidency in regard to the Russians. That is why, today is a real special day. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee are asking for all of this. They are really showing what the Republican Party and the ones henchmen of the President didn’t do before the Mid-Terms, as they shut this down, prematurely out of own interests. One man should be happy he isn’t on the list today and that is Devin Nunes. His only guy missing.

Here is the list of people under investigation by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee:

Alan Garten, Alexander Nix, Allen Weisselberg, American Media Inc, Anatoli Samochornov, Andrew Intrater, Annie Donaldson, Brad Parscale, Brittany Kaiser, Cambridge Analytica, Carter Page, Columbus Nova, Concord Management and Consulting, Corey Lewandowski, David Pecker, Department of Justice, Don McGahn, Donald J Trump Revocable Trust, Donald Trump Jr., Dylan Howard, Eric Trump, Erik Prince, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Felix Sater, Flynn Intel Group, General Services Administration, George Nader, George Papadopoulos, Hope Hicks, Irakly Kaveladze, Jared Kushner, Jason Maloni, Jay Sekulow, Jeff Sessions, Jerome Corsi, John Szobocsan, Julian Assange, Julian David Wheatland, Keith Davidson, KT McFarland, Mark Corallo, Matt Tait, Matthew Calamari, Michael Caputo, Michael Cohen, Michael Flynn, Michael Flynn Jr, Paul Erickson, Paul Manafort, Peter Smith (Estate), Randy Credico, Reince Priebus, Rhona Graff, Rinat Akhmetshin, Rob Goldstone, Roger Stone, Ronald Lieberman, Sam Nunberg, SCL Group Limited, Sean Spicer, Sheri Dillon, Stefan Passantino, Steve Bannon, Ted Malloch, The White House, Trump Campaign, Trump Foundation, Trump Organization, Trump Transition, Viktor Vekselberg, Wikileaks, 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee, Christopher Bancroft Burnham, Frontier Services Group, J.D. Gordon, Kushner Companies, NRA, Rick Gates, Tom Barrack, Tom Bossert and Tony Fabrizio.

All of them are implicated or has information on the matter at hand. The FBI, DoJ and other government organizations are just to facilitate the investigation as they have various connected investigations going on through the Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the case in Southern District of New York (SDNY). However, that will not stop the U.S. House Judiciary from gathering intelligence and information about the possible obstruction of justice, Russian interference and so-on.

They are really starting a massive probe, that will span and really gather information at a level, the Presidency and his associates didn’t envision at this point. All of this people have to follow the guidelines and produce it. Therefore, the coming weeks will be interesting, as also to see if they all are interesting in complying and following the guidelines.

Because, the Committee and the U.S. Representatives will be awaiting answers. The public will see, if they are complying or stalling for time. Since, this is the start of a serious probe, where the Judiciary Committee have already gathered information, but wants more. As it was to dig deep into the organizations and people around Trump. To ensure the state have good actors and also people who are following the codes of conduct, not to talk about following the rules of law.

It is not a good day to be Gangster in Government. Since, the NY Gang is really under scrutiny now and the world is watching. With anticipation, with what they will do with the Trump associates and in the President Trump himself. As the people around are getting indicted and catching felony charges. Falling like flies and now, yet another broad probe is hitting the NY Gang. Surely, they cannot catch a break. Peace.

Nepotism103: Cutting Corners to keep the Family Close [Kushner-Ivanka Edition]

Well, over the recent day, there been news of a John Kelly of last year trying to stop the White House from giving Security Clearance to Jared Kushner, surely there would be speculations into the wife as well, Ivanka Trump, who is the daughter of the President, both who are in informal or non-specific roles in the Trump Administration. They are there, but not really there. Which makes the whole arrangement more hectic.

However, ever since winning the election, these two, the power-couple behind the President. Has lingered around him. Not that they have any expertise or knowledge in public administration. No, they are just relatives of the President and therefore, trusted counsel. They are not what you say, career civil servants nor been ideological driven to get the position they are in. It is not because of their education or their profession, they have no experience and no merits to prove their value. Therefore, only the blood-line and the relations are the reasons.

That is why it is even more striking, that the power-couple behind the President are under fire today again. Because of an issue that lasted so long. They went so long without proper security clearances. It is now proven that the President demanded the son-in-law to get the Top Secret Security Clearance, even if he could be compromised, lied about foreign communications and other forms, which is used to prove scrutiny and eligibility for security clearances in the White House. The same was done by his wife Ivanka, as she also had revise her forms and information to the officials for Security Clearance.

These two wouldn’t have gotten away with it, if they weren’t related with the President. The White House has already been in a hot mess of the Security Clearances, as there been plenty with interim security clearances and not gotten properly integrated and following protocol, as the staff is supposed to be clear and trustworthy of such. As they are keeping state secrets and ensuring the safety of the Republic. However, instead there been plenty of questionable behaviour and connections, that even the ones who was already flagged and in question got appointed with the likes of Gen. Michael Flynn.

What we have seen and read is yet another step of nepotism. Where the President has resident and ruled in favour of his family and his closest kin over the Republic. Where the President are ordering for his own sake and not for the safety of the Republic. That is why Security Clearance given to Jared Kushner is done in spite of the laws. The same can be said about the position and abilities Ivanka has too in the White House. They are there because of the President and nothing else.

This is what Tin-Pot dictators does. This is what autocrats and tyrants do, because they doesn’t trust anyone else than family. This is like the mafia and crime-families, this is not actions made by government or public administrations, which are taken serious. They would hire and appoint people of expertise and merits in the fields. Not hire family members and give them ultimate security clearances without having an official office or position in the Cabinet.

Instead, they are two internal satellites within the West Wing. Doing whatever they like, as their mission, their value to staff is bound by family loyalty and not by any ordinary function. They are not afraid of being fired or retired. The family will always take care of them. They are as thick as thieves and maybe they are. Since the investigations are following them and they have to answer for the public for the orders and the appointment of themselves. Since, it is a public administration and not a Sopranos. Feel me?

Kushner, explain yourself, why you revised your documents a million times, John Kelly didn’t advance you and later you still got clearance! Explain, also Mr. President explain that and why Ivanka got a vital role, when none is doing anything significant. Peace.

USA: House of Representatives – Commitee on Financial Services letter to Mnuchin “on the missing SARs documents from Trump Campaign Officials” (18.05.2018)
