Money laundering and conflicts of interest
There have long been credible allegations that Russian money was laundered through the Trump Organization. If Russia could show that Trump, his business or his immediate family had benefited from tainted money or broken the law ó or if Trump believed they could ó it would mean that Russia could exert pressure on Trump to influence U.S. foreign policy.

The presidentís behavior has done nothing to allay these concerns, including his inexplicable conduct in Helsinki, when he sided with Putin over his own intelligence agencies and appeared to accept Russia's mendacious denial of involvement in the 2016 election.

But the concern goes beyond Russia, and extends to broader questions of financial conflict of interest. Following the murder of U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi Arabia, Trump has sought to excuse Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Is the presidentís deference to Saudi Arabia based on geopolitical or security concerns, or is it based on his own financial interests? Although the president now denies having any financial ties to the Saudis, just a short time ago he was bragging about the many tens of millions of dollars the Saudis were spending on his apartments and how much he favored them as a result.

Oh, here we go - "allegations" by non other than Adam Schiff - that total partisan hack from California - what a joke!

This must be Adam's 15th or 20th bite at the impeachment apple - keep trying Schiff - you and Maxine Waters
make a great pair!

The American people deserve to know that our president is acting in their interest and not his own financial self interest, or because he has been compromised by a foreign power. Now, with a new Democratic majority in the House, we should be able to find out.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., is ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Adam Schiff is a much bigger Sleaze than Trump anyday - ranks right up there with Maxine Watters, Keith Ellison and
Ocasio Cortez.  The man is a lying machine. Watch any interview with the POS if you want to see a con-man in action.
But I got to give the huckster from California credit - he tries everything - although nothing has stuck yet.

Must be nice to have Congressional immunity when you make derogatory allegations against your opponents.

So much for "ranking" - certainly not "respected".

I really, really hope the Democratic Party nominates one of these nut bags for President in 2020.

I think politics is a very important (separate) topic on an investing board.

The psychology is very much related.

Trump is paid hundreds of millions by the Saudi's and, coincidentally, he ignores the intelligence on the Kashoggi killing:


At another rally that year, Trump said of the Saudis, "I make a lot of money from them."

"They buy all sorts of my stuff. All kinds of toys from Trump. They pay me millions and hundred of millions."

Or he is a liar?  When is it safe to believe him?

Might as well - Hillary's slogan for 2016

"Vote for me, I have no platform, but I am not Donald Trump"

The goal of the Mueller investigation was very clear: Find the Russian collusion with Trump that caused the election to be thrown Trump's way.

Remember - Hillary LOST the election because Russia influenced millions of votes. She did not lose the election
because she was a terrible candidate. The election was clearly rigged by the collusion. The purpose of Mueller
investigation is to find the collusion and influence. Trump is NOT a legitimate democratically elected President
of the United States.

So - I will ask once again: Where is the collusion?

cubsfan----Robert Mueller`s mandate is much broader than finding whether or not their was collusion with the Russians by the Trump campaign. You are simply wrong if you think or believe otherwise. Yes...potential for Russian collusion is part of his mandate and a very important part of it however his overall mandate is MUCH broader.

A link to the document appointing Robert Mueler as Special Counsel is provided below:

Of course , that is exactly what Mueller is doing - looking at everything under the sun.
Under every rock to unseat a duly elected President. Setting perjury traps for anyone
ever associated with Donald Trump, etc. Looking into everyone's past history, well
outside of the scope of the election.  It's a travesty of justice, with an unlimited mandate.

But look who set the scope - none other than Rod Rosenstein!
Rosenstein is both a witness and accessory to the defrauding the FISA court!

What could be more obvious.

And we all know the express purpose is to find collusion between Russia and Trump.
Because that is why Hillary lost the election. That has always been the purpose.
