1. Why aren't the Koch Brothers in prison yet?

These greedy pieces of shit should not have the power they have.

7. You answered your own question. The power they have makes them untouchable.

 

I agree with you, of course.

3. Who is Adam Khan?

And I didn't know Mulvaney is a Koch operative. Do you have a link? Thx.

4. Koch Caucus (pretty much) Equals Freedom Caucus

Mulvaney is a member of the Freedom Caucus

The Koch Caucus

While it can be difficult to penetrate the veil of secrecy surrounding "dark money" in politics, some contributions must still be publicly disclosed by law. CMD analyzed those to create a profile of the Koch family corporation's support for Republican candidates in 2016.

>>This author cross-checked these contributions against known members of the Freedom Caucus. After discounting for House members who left the Caucus, retired, or attempted to run for higher office, that analysis shows that "KochPAC"--the political arm of Koch Industries--provided funding to more than 80 percent of the Freedom Caucus' members.<<

. . .

Today, the AFP is telling donors, in emphatic capital letters, that its three-part agenda for health care consists of "1. REPEALING OBAMACARE; 2. FIXING OUR BROKEN TAX SYSTEM"--that is, tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy--and, "3. CUTTING FEDERAL SPENDING."

. . .

These three interconnected stories--of the Koch brothers, the Freedom Caucus, and the Affordable Care Act--paint the larger picture of money's corrupting role in American politics.

Cutting Medicaid is a BIG PART of cutting/gutting Obamacare. Kochs want it GONE. With one cut or a thousand.

5. That's great info, but who is Adam Khan?

And the Kochs have gotten a pass, but with what's going on now, if dt goes down, hopefully their agenda does, too.

6. He calls himself on Twitter:

"Majordomo. Exposing Trump https://www.gofundme.com/TrumpRussia Stuff at @Google, @Twitter, @Uber, @SpaceX @Apple *Turn notifications on for breaking Trump news*"

Other than that, no idea. I follow him because he's almost always correct (I randomly research info in tweets - haven't found his facts to be incorrect yet). He has a lot of followers -- not that that means anything.
