Penn Jillette lost on Apprentice in 2013 and was asked by the powers that be on the show...

whether he would vote for Don the Con as President before they gave the win to the other finalist. ( see; http://www.democraticunderground.com/1017396426 )
see: Penn Jillette lost Celebrity Apprentice, but wins for the atheist label for proof as to when he was on the show. So Don the Con's people were plotting his campaign for at least a couple of years before his announcement.

" Handwritten ledgers show $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments designated for Mr. Manafort from Mr. Yanukovych’s pro-Russian political party from 2007 to 2012, according to Ukraine’s newly formed National Anti-Corruption Bureau. Investigators assert that the disbursements were part of an illegal off-the-books system whose recipients also included election officials."

Maybe Manafort was paid in advance (with more to come perhaps) for his work on The Con's campaign? He is allegedly not being paid for his work on the campaign--- a claim quite bizarre considering the known motivations of the people involved.

To the victor goes the spoils- proclaims Don the Con today regarding Iraqi oil.

To the applause of his approved, captive audience. Insane blockheads.

Applying that philosophy to the presidential race he is now losing badly, what would it mean if he won? Anyone here think he would not loot the United States of America for all he could get away with?

Manafort named in (new) Ukrainian probe into millions in secret cash

source: CNN

" (CNN) Donald Trump's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, has been named in an investigation by Ukrainian authorities looking at whether he and others received millions in illegal payments from Ukraine's former pro-Russian ruling party, according to the National Anti-Corruption Bureau.

The probe is part of a wider investigation by the bureau into allegations of corruption and influence peddling against ex-president Viktor Yanukovich's administration, for whom Manafort worked as a political consultant, before the leader's violent ouster in 2014.
The investigation is looking into "shadow accounting" and potentially illegal payments made by Yanukovich to Manafort and other Ukrainian election officials, according to Ukraine's National Anti-Corruption.

The announcement of the investigation follows a report published late Sunday by The New York Times, which first revealed that Ukrainian investigators had found Manafort's name included in an off-the-books, handwritten ledger detailing a series of secret payments -- among them, a $12.7 million payout to Manafort.

Clinton campaign responds to shocking revelations about Paul Manafort’s pro-Kremlin ties

source: RawStory

" Clinton campaign press secretary Robby Mook issued a late-night statement on the bombshell in the recent New York Times detailing Donald Trump’s campaign chair Paul Manafort and his questionable dealings in Ukraine.

Mook notes that the comes just before Trump is scheduled to give a major foreign policy address Monday on what his strategy will be if he is elected as president.

“We have learned of more troubling connections between Donald Trump’s team and pro-Kremlin elements in Ukraine,” Mook said in the statement. “Given the pro-Putin policy stances adopted by Donald Trump and the recent Russian government hacking and disclosure of Democratic Party records, Donald Trump has a responsibility to disclose campaign chair Paul Manafort’s and all other campaign employees’ and advisers’ ties to Russian or pro-Kremlin entities, including whether any of Trump’s employees or advisers are currently representing and or being paid by them.”

RNC confirms it is stuck to Don the Con like toilet paper to...

RNC Chair Priebus rallies with Trump

"CNN) Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus introduced Donald Trump at a Friday afternoon rally, a show of unity with the GOP nominee as he struggles in the polls. Priebus talked up his party's nominee and slammed Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

"We're in a battle for freedom in this country. Donald Trump is going to help protect our country," Priebus told a boisterous Erie, Pennsylvania crowd. "Look at the choice we've got. Hillary Clinton has a problem with lying. She lied. She lied. And she lied over and over and over again."

Such appearances by a party chair are not unusual in a presidential campaign, but this one stands out in an election cycle with Trump lagging behind Clinton in a swath of polls, particularly in key electoral states. That's led to tension between the Trump campaign and RNC officials over strategies and tactics.

If you don't know the answer to a question, just say you don't know.

Don the Con must have been told that by his own lawyers in hundreds of his civil cases yet still can't do it.

Trump: 'Fine' with trying US citizens in military courts

" (CNN) Donald Trump said in an interview Thursday that he would support trying US citizens suspected of terrorism in military tribunals -- a controversial proposal that would likely be challenged as unconstitutional.

The Republican presidential nominee told the Miami Herald that he doesn't "at all" like the idea of trying terrorist suspects in the civilian court system, even though US citizens are constitutionally entitled to due process. He added that he would be "fine" with trying US citizens in military tribunals at Guantánamo Bay, the US naval base that is also home to a military prison housing captured terror suspects.

Trump addressed the Guantánamo Bay detention center, climate change and the Zika virus in a wide-ranging interview with the Miami Herald.

Montini: Giffords shames silent Senators McCain, Flake

source: AZCentral

" Former Rep. Gabby Giffords has a difficult time speaking, but not speaking out. Not when it comes to a politician who insinuates violence against another politician, as happened this week with Donald Trump

U.S. Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain have no trouble speaking, but they remained mute over Trump’s crude remark about “Second Amendment people” maybe having a way to prevent a President Hillary Clinton from appointing judges.

In 2011 a gunman north of Tucson used a weapon with a high-capacity magazine to fire 31 shots in 15 seconds, killing six people and wounding 13, including Giffords.

McCain and Flake represent the state where that happened.

How Much Does Donald Trump Pay in Taxes? It Could Be Zero

source: New York Times

" Mitt Romney was excoriated during the 2012 presidential campaign for paying $4.9 million in federal income tax, or an average of just 14 percent of his adjusted gross income, in the two years for which he released returns.

No one should be surprised, though, if Donald J. Trump has paid far less — perhaps even zero federal income tax in some years. Indeed, that’s the expectation of numerous real estate and tax professionals I’ve interviewed in recent weeks.

Even with hundreds of millions in gross revenue from his vast real estate empire, “it’s both possible and legal that Donald Trump would pay little or no income tax,” said Len Green, an accountant and chairman of the Green Group, a tax and accounting advisory firm. Mr. Green is also a real estate investor, teaches at Babson College and is the author of the forthcoming “The Entrepreneur’s Playbook.”

At this point can there be any doubt whatsoever that there are things in the tax returns which would so thoroughly derail the Don the Con campaign that to carry on would actually be a money losing proposition for The Con? Even though he has no concern for the good of our country he isn't about to knowingly throw the money he has conned from so many away.
