Trump's Finances Appear Shaky, Opening Up More Opportunities To Buy Presidential 'Favors' 20.1.2020 Crooks Liars
Reporter David Fahrenthold is responsible for perhaps 80% of everything we know about Donald Trump's ongoing business operations. In a start-of-year summary of where things stand, Fahrenthold and other Washington Post reporters wrote up a terse rundown of the state of the presidential grift-o-matic; they question, among other things, whether the Trump family purging their businesses of undocumented workers (only after being caught, of course) will raise labor costs and whether the hit Donald's companies have been taking due to their association with, you know, him will compel Trump to sell off assets or take other, similarly drastic measures. Donald Trump only months ago sincerely, truly ordered the next G7 Summit be held at one of his own golf resorts, for example, and had the White House defending that obviously crooked money grab before backing down again. He has gotten bolder in his attempts to funnel money into his properties, and his family has become less interested in keeping up ...

Chris Matthews: Calling The Bidens To Testify Would Be 'Relevant' And 'Germane' 18.1.2020 Crooks Liars
If any of the brass at MSNBC wants to know whether they should can Hardball, here is a shining argument for why it might be a good idea. Watch Chris Matthews parrot the bullshit Republican tit-for-tat talking points about witnesses. "The word out that Mitch may figure out okay, you guys want witnesses, I'll give you four or five. Two of mine, two of yours," Matthews said to Senator Chris VanHollen. "I want the Bidens; I'll give you Mick Mulvaney and John Bolton. Suppose you are confronted with that? Would you take the whole slate?" I don't know, Chris, what if we want to call Ivanka and Jared? Would they take the whole slate? Because surely Ivanka and Jared are MORE relevant than anything any Biden has to say, since they're working in the White House and are grifters benefiting from taxpayer-funded nepotism. Van Hollen, to his credit, immediately shot that nonsense down, saying that the whole request is a "red herring," particularly when the issue at hand is his decision to withhold Congressionally ...
