It Takes A Thief (or a Trump; is that redundant?)

Grifters Gotta Grift

Jar-Jar vanka Time: The big hand is on her ass, the little hand is no where to be seen.

The Business Insider:

“Jared Kushner approved the creation of a campaign shell company that secretly paid the president’s family members and spent almost half of the campaign’s $1.26 billion war chest.

“The operation acted almost like a campaign within a campaign. It paid some of Trump’s top advisors and family members while shielding financial and operational details from public scrutiny.”

But by all means, our failed political press will talk about Hunter Biden.

Related, The NYTimes tells us about what is most definitely a slush fund:

“Donald Trump will exit the White House as a private citizen next month perched atop a pile of campaign cash unheard-of for an outgoing president, and with few legal limits on how he can spend it.

“Deflated by a loss he has yet to acknowledge, Mr. Trump has cushioned the blow by coaxing huge sums of money from his loyal supporters — often under dubious pretenses — raising roughly $250 million since Election Day along with the national party.”

“More than $60 million of that sum has gone to a new political action committee, which Mr. Trump will control after he leaves office. Those funds, which far exceed what previous outgoing presidents had at their disposal, provide him with tremendous flexibility for his post-presidential ambitions: He could use the money to quell rebel factions within the party, reward loyalists, fund his travels and rallies, hire staff, pay legal bills and even lay the groundwork for a far-from-certain 2024 run.”

I don’t know if either of these things are illegal, but they are sure as hell unethical.

    Forget the silverware, there won’t be any left to count. Same goes for the artwork, statuary, rugs, carpets, sheets, towels and pillowcases, (to be cut up for souvenirs).
    “Own a piece of History! Now you can buy any of several mementoes Donald J. Trump managed to save from certain destruction, once he left the White House. Hurry, it’s all going fast, and it’s authenticated by not only the Preznit himself, but also Jared and Don Jr.”
    (certificate of authenticity supplied with every purchase.)

    Oh my word…I so hope the Biden administration & congress is able to put forward (& through, fingers/toes crossed) a whole lot of solid tough laws to replace so much that is currently just based on decorum, tradition & ‘well that wasn’t very sporting’.

    • Oh #MoscowMitch will just loove this…so lomg as the rules only apply to Democrats. The moment that the rules are applied to Republicans they’ll either Mau Mau the agency involved (remember the IRS and 501C orgs?) or get their pet fascists on the Supreme Court to rule that the law is unconstiutional.

      You had a great post in your blog about this. It strikes me that this is THE BIG STORY, seems like the culmination of all that is Trumpism. Not yet making headlines on CNN or WaPo, maybe that is imminent.

    He could, but I doubt he will.
