In law there are points to be proven did you see evidence of "instructs" or "directs" I know its obviously what happened, trump isnt that nuanced he seems or
pretends to be unaware of the problem of paying his own legal settlements with the fund.

If the above is not a flat out lie,
Its incongruous that he would have been careful enough with not seeking or directing payments into it.

There are certainly people on record stating as such in various articles. As far as I know, only NY AG is pursuing in court, so we'll find out how it stacks up legally. He's already bought his way out of FL and TX investigations, ironically enough with Trump Foundation money.

This problem with the Clinton Foundation quid pro quo theory is that the foundation actually spends its money helping people. It's a really highly rated charity. So even if there were some dependency of kickbacks for Sec State help (which hasn't been demonstrated) what's the point? What does she get out of it aside from advancing the benefit to the receivers of the charity?

not to mention stimulus package was so tax cut heavy because it was the only way to get such a bill through Congress. Original proposal was much heavier on infrastructure spending and lighter on tax cuts. But there was a Dem in the WH so deficits suddenly mattered again.

LOL.

You think that fraud is never successful, every single case of attempted voter fraud has been detected and prosecuted.

So you posit that there are more than 1.3 million fraudulent votes cast per year, of which we have only been able to catch one millionth of them, a handful of these being people trying to demonstrate how easy it is to vote fraudulently

^A thing I have never understood the argument for^

Not that I think you're arguing for it, but I have never understood why people do.

Also unfortunately it's not that simple.

What are you talking about, Postie? Drugs are never addictive! You can just stop taking them! Societal/peer pressure? What's that?

:roll: they will just stop taking the drugs once they realize Nixon has illegalized them
I'm gonna go out on a limb and posit that you've never had a heroin/crack addiction

Also don't forget about the metric tons of cocaine being allowed into the US during the Reagan administration as a results of bargains with the Contras in Nicaragua that happened to coincide with his War on Drugs

But it's a good thing the FBI told us all about the emails on Anthony Weiner's laptop, cause that turned out to be HUGE
