Trump, STILL screwing contractors: AZ airport wants $13K reimbursement for Martha McSally "rally"



Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, which was the site of one of President Donald Trump’s pre-midterm election rallies in October, is attempting to recoup the $13,000 in emergency funds it had to pay for extra lighting after the campaign failed to make good on providing it for the safety of rally-goers.

According to AZCentral, the October rally was part of an effort by Trump to boost the candidacy of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Martha McSally who lost the previously GOP-held seat to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

The report states Airport Executive Director Brian O’Neill informed the airport authority about the emergency expense saying the airport and city of Mesa was forced to use emergency funds when Trump’s people didn’t follow through on their promises related to the rally held in a private hangar for the GOP candidate.

In an email, Mesa spokesman Kevin Christopher said the airport spent the $13,000, but said that they were still compiling costs related to the event which was attended by a reported 6,000 locals inside with an additional 6,000 left outside where the lights were needed.

According to the report, the airport has requested reimbursement, with AZCentral stating they had contacted Trump’s campaign officials but received no comment.

Goodlatte: 'It's awfully tough' for Ivanka Trump to comply with email standards

Goodlatte: ‘It’s awfully tough’ for Ivanka Trump to comply with email standards

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/11/26/bob-goodlatte-ivanka-trump-emails-hillary-clinton-1017364

The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), said on Monday that it was “awfully tough” for government officials such as Ivanka Trump to comply with agency standards for secure communications when sending emails.

“When things like this come up, it’s important people understand, they need to make sure they’re doing what they can,” Goodlatte said during an interview on CNN.

“And it’s awfully tough, as everyone knows, when you’re sending emails about a lot of different things to make sure that you’re doing it according to the rules in the White House or wherever you’re doing it,” he added.

Goodlatte also suggested that President Donald Trump’s daughter’s use of a personal email account to conduct government business — first reported by POLITICO last year — was “very different” from the private email server Hillary Clinton employed during her time as secretary of State.

....The Fake News Media builds Bob Mueller up as a Saint, when in actuality he is the exact opposite. He is doing TREMENDOUS damage to our Criminal Justice System, where he is only looking at one side and not the other. Heroes will come of this, and it won’t be Mueller and his...

The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other. Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie. Mueller is a conflicted prosecutor gone rogue....

Adam Schiff on Republicans "interested in the truth, or merely being extensions of Rudy Giuliani"

House Dems will target Donald Trump Jr first thing in January — and could quickly find out if he lied under oath



With Democrats in the House of Representatives set to get subpoena power in January, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) tells USA Today that one of the first avenues that his party could pursue is unmasking the blocked cell phone number that Donald Trump Jr. called while working on plans to meet with Russian agents during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The blocked number is significant because President Donald Trump himself also uses a blocked number to communicate with people. If it turns out that Trump Jr. called his father while he was arranging meetings with Russian officials, it could mean that he lied under oath when he told Congress that he never mentioned the meetings with his father.

“Republicans refused to look at the phone records so that we could find out because they were afraid of what the answer might be,” Schiff tells USA Today.

Now that Schiff will be in charge of the House Intelligence Committee, he tells USA Today that he’s not banking on many Republicans helping him investigate the president.

“We can’t obviously force them to work with us,” he explains. “They’ll have to make the decision for themselves whether they’re interested in finding out the truth or they’re interested in merely being extensions of Rudy Giuliani.”

Trump is asked how he felt seeing images of women and children running from tear gas.

"Well, I do say why are they there? I mean, I have to start off first of all, the tear gas is a very minor form of the tear gas itself. It's very safe." (via ABC)
