So, it's getting fairly good exposure. On some sites I scanned, nothing about it was found at all and those typically were small nations with press controls and/or those worried about offending Trump, Putin or some other extremist right-wing politician. Good English-translated news sites are still very difficult to find in many parts of the world such as South and Central America and eastern Europe.

8. You're very welcome. Just goes to prove.....

the stain of impeachment is now indelible........

For all his life, Trump has committed offenses against thousands of people - customers, workers, contractors and suppliers of goods and always escaped significant scrutiny by keeping everything tied up and hidden in court until those harmed just give up or go broke.

Regardless of the final outcome, he can't hide this one. The international press exposure he loves so much has now came back to haunt him.
