Ha, at least on 1/15/21 TFG knew he was terminated

Following President Trump’s exit from public office, the Office of Government Ethics released his final public financial disclosures, known as a termination report, covering 2020 and the first weeks of 2021.

Among the Trump-branded properties he visited most during his presidency, Trump made $24 million from Mar-a-Lago, about $15 million from Bedminster, more than $44 million from Doral and $15 million from his DC hotel.

According to the disclosure, he was unable to assign a value to the legal services provided by Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, which he has not paid for.

Mother Jones scoop - Ivanka gave false testimony re: inauguration



The Trump family has trouble with depositions. In 2007 testimony, Donald Trump was repeatedly shown to be a liar. In February, Donald Trump Jr. was deposed in the Trump inauguration scandal lawsuit, and on several key points, under oath, he provided false testimony. A review of documents filed in that case and other material obtained by Mother Jones shows that Ivanka Trump also testified inaccurately during her deposition in this lawsuit.

The inauguration probe was launched last year by Karl Racine, the attorney general of Washington, DC. He has alleged that Trump’s inauguration committee misused charitable funds to enrich the Trump family. As Racine put it, the lawsuit maintains “that the Inaugural Committee, a nonprofit corporation, coordinated with the Trump family to grossly overpay for event space in the Trump International Hotel… The Committee also improperly used non-profit funds to throw a private party [at the Trump Hotel] for the Trump family costing several hundred thousand dollars.” In short, the attorney general accused the Trump gang of major grifting, and he is seeking to recover the money paid to the Trump Hotel so those funds can be used for real charitable purposes.

Browsing through it all here.. All the great Dems here.. with

so much hope and so much energy...

Hate to say this out loud... But we still seem leaderless?( Of course we love Kamala and Joe, of course!)

But I feel no compelling force that is rounding up our energy. Perhaps, as someone will for sure say... "It's up to us." . Perhaps it's a matter of waiting until covid is reigned in?

Oops... Delta. Heard today that if you are from Hong Kong and you spend more than 2 hrs in England you can't come back .

Perhaps someone will say " you expect too much". "They've only been in 5 mos."

For Chris Mathews fans... I know there are some out there:)

What is going on? Like they've got him on this apology tour? They're trying to remediate his reputation?

I really missed him during all the trump turmoil. I know many disagree, but we could have really used his take back then.

I have not watched MSNBC since they canned him. I wish that if he came back, he would go to CNN, personally.
