I'm starting to think this is a false flag planted by the Dump Administration to distract from the bombshell he dropped in the middle of his press conference regarding his business finances. We're so busy talking about golden showers that we are forgetting his bold faced lie about not having financial ties to Russia and the fact that he plans to violate the Emoluments Clause with impunity.

Might be a false flag, designed to embarrass the MSM.....

Senator McCain is a war hero who suffered unimaginable torture in the Hanoi Hilton.

I am very familiar with McCain's biography...He is a hero because the North Vietnamese wanted to use him for propaganda purposes by releasing him early (he was the son of the Admiral who was in charge of CinCPAC) and he refused because of the first caught-first released rule....What does that have to do with his turning this dossier over to the FBI??
Thanks from MrMike

And naturally you have proof of this.

Which emoluments clause? The one in Article I? That applies to Congress and lesser offices.

There's another emoluments clause, this one in Article II, which applies to POTUS. Don't see that one being violated.

POTUS is explicitly exempt form statutory law regarding conflict of interest.

Q: What about investments from Russia in Trump’s businesses?

A. There is strong evidence that Trump’s businesses have received significant funding from Russian investors. Most notably, Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. made that very claim at a real estate conference in New York in 2008, saying “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.” Donald Trump Jr. added, “we see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.”

Trump also made millions when he agreed to bring the Miss Universe pageant to Moscow in 2013, a deal financed in part by the development company of a Russian billionaire Aras Agalarov. Agalarov is a Putin ally who is sometimes called the “Trump of Russia” because of his tendency to put his own name on his buildings. At the time, Trump mingled with the Russian business elite at a swanky after-party. “Almost all of the oligarchs were in the room,” Trump bragged on returning home.

Don't care what Brookings opinion is as written by three Progs. Article I does not apply to the Executive, part of the reason POTUS is explicitly exempt from financial conflict of interest statutory law. That is also why there is an Article II emoluments clause that applies to POTUS.

And you offer no proof, just an article from Bezos' WaPo. Bezos, a Trump hater. And twice, at least, in December 2016, the WaPo got caught posting fake news. And hint: It isn't 2008, for 9 years now.


Thanks from MrMike
