    Ever since he “rubbed the orb” on his first visit T Rump has kowtowed to the Saudi’s…..and Russians….and North Korea….and…….Fox News……

  2. …well, that is no news. If that scum bastard had followed the law, I would be in a dead faint. What I want to know is what happens now? waiting . . . crickets . . . yawning . . . waiting . . .

    “The Global Magnitsky Act authorizes the President to impose sanctions” – and if he refuses to do so, then what?

  3. Trump is a “no-law-matters” kind of dictator-wanna-be, especially when the law* as written, has no discernible immediate consequence, unless the vague threat of impeachment works for you. So far, that vague threat has been useless.

    As I see it, the myriad of law enforcement professionals who have opined that Trump has operated his businesses for many decades as a criminal enterprise, ruling over them as a “mob boss,” don’t render those opinions for name calling purposes. They do so, because the evidence is abundant that he intentionally and deliberately violates federal and civil, criminal and civil statutes, no matter the consequence.

    So, it’s laughable that Trump would be deterred from flipping the bird to a Senate committee with the threat that he’d be in violation of a law, which law violation means nothing to him, where instead he can choose to kiss up and provide aid and comfort to an accused murderer, Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, from whose family “Trump has profited handsomely from business dealings” “dating back at least to the 1990s,”** and from which, we all know he greedily expects to reap many many many more millions in the future.
