My father of blessed memory was,

As one of his jobs, an auditor for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 38 years. He told me two important things about money:

1. Never ever be involved with local, state, or Federal monies. He said: you’re a nice guy, a get-along guy and people much shrewder than you will manipulate you into doing something which can cost you your job or your freedom. And once they have their hooks into you, they can threaten you with exposure if you don’t continue to play along.

2. The root of much of the crime in America is cheating on tax returns. Period.

The Trump crime family has apparently been guilty of the second while the first involves individuals who are saving themselves by giving testimony. I believe my father was correct on both counts and we are going to see this guy’s nuts toasted on Pennsylvania Avenue.
