Your 2 possible scenarios sound like exactly what I've been thinking as of late too. I am leaning towards "something" causing an issue and elections being suspended or some other upheaval of the "election" timeline

I don't buy this at all.

They're "anonymous" ppl and could be staffers for Hillary or Sotos pretending to be ex Trump staffers.

BS to spin on CNN.


Except there are thousands of people suing Trump for the precise same thing?

I would feel more sympathy for these advisors getting stiffed if they hadn't agreed to help get a raging, mentally disabled man elected.

You probably don't realize this but Steven Mnuchin, one of Trump's principal economic advisors and his national campaign finance chairman worked for Soros for several years at Soros Fund Managment (in addition to 17 years at Goldman Sachs).

Trump also got a big fat $160 million mezzanine loan from Soros (and Steven Feinberg another of Trump's economic advisors) to span the gap in financing he needed to build the Trump International Hotel and Tower in Chicago.

Chi cago Tribune 2004

The money came from a trio of investors including Grove Capital (a subsidary of Soros Fund Managment) and Blackacre Institutional Capital (subsidary of Feinberg's Cerebus). Where things get really interesting is that in 2012, the trio let Trump pay off the loan for $48 million despite the fact that it had a face value of $130 million and despite the fact that the Tower was in Trump's own words "massively underleveraged" and had already reached 70% occupancy and was therefore far from being in any financial troubles — quite the contrary.

If you want to use the specter of Soros to push theories about a grand conspiracy against Trump, it's more than fair to remind you that Trump has Soros skeletons in his own closet.

You do know that's not true at all right? Trump is doing this to himself. The media is just right there with a camera and a microphone. He is unqualified to be president. He doesn't have a clue and will never be able to do this job.
He gets pissed at anyone who shines a light on his gaffes.
Just realize this.


You know what you said isn't true right? See we can both play those games. CNN and MSNBC were called out in the DNC leaks.

One missing detail is how Trump is involved in any of this. Did he stop signing the checks? Did he force them to work overtime? If Trump treated them bad, surely you know how he was involved in their mistreatment, and you might be willing to share that with us.


Did you read the Washington Post article that I linked?

These are paid positions. The money comes out of the campaign fund.

The candidate directs how the money is spent.

And Trump, famously, doesn't use money managers - so it wasn't some staffer filtering the money for salaries into his own pocket.


I did read the article. Did you read it? According to the article, Rick Dearborn and John Mashburn were in charge, made the promises of payment, and couldn't deliver. That's why I'm wondering how you can equate The Trump campaign, and presumably everyone in it, including Rick Dearborn and John Mashburn, to mean Donald J Trump. I'm also wondering how you can take this to mean Trump is treating people badly, because it seems a large stretch of a stretchy imagination.

These were not paid positions. No oral agreement was made, no budget was passed by the New York office (or Trump as you would see it), as the article explicitly states.

The Washington Post is now a propaganda machine against Trump. They no longer qualify as news.
More detail is required. Let's see the contracts. If they signed non-disclosures as stated , let's see a copy of those too.

Also, the headline makes it sounds like his actual advisors had walked out, not some disgruntled people he has probably never spoken with in an office in DC.

There are also those who worked for him and then declared volunteer status to go work with the PAC because it is illegal otherwise. So, the law is being followed. The article discussing that came out a few weeks ago. This is just a rehash with non names to keep it in the news cycle. The same stories about Trump pop up every few weeks just repackaged.

I would just like to know why there are never any names with these hit pieces. Clintons are never anonymous...they just break the law and get promoted.

Don't ya love the "CATCH ALL BUCKET"?

Anything the Right doesn't agree with or doesn't like (facts don't matter) - - - get's tossed into the LIBERAL/PROPAGANDA "CATCH ALL BUCKET".

"Don't agree, don't like it, its propaganda - - - "here ya go, TOSS".

Same as all of you saying anything in Drudge is garbage. I think the left is just still pissed at him because of Monica. Same thing with Brietbart.

The US media has NEVER been this bias. Not even in 08 when they would bash Bush.

Trump article - anonymous sources say
Hillary article - DOJ/FBI/WIkiLeaks released documents show corruption

See the difference?

I have heard the term "vast right wing conspiracy" about a thousand times more than I've heard the term "vast left wing conspiracy".
Don't forget Edward Bernays was the father of propaganda as we know it and he was a flaming liberal. Liberals literally invented this stuff. So pardon if I respectfully disagree with you using every ounce of my being...

DO NOT AGREE AT ALL

I started in online forums as a Bush supporting Republican.

I know from real experience which side is more the "I'm right, you're wrong" group. And it's not the Liberals.

Throw in HuffPo also...this is at the bottom of EVERY article on the site....



Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.


You do not see this on Drudge...or Briet...or Infowars...or any that want to get the information out. I mean, that tagline is the MANTRA of some of you....

Yes, with liberals it's not a case of "I'm right, you're wrong", it's more often "I'm right, you're racist"

It's not even a hidden agenda anymore with the MSM - they are all in on Clinton and don't care about objectivity.

Trump looks good against Hillary if you turn off the lights and squint your eyes almost shut.
When you shine a light on things she's head and shoulders above him.


Head and shoulders above him? Then how come she doesn't have a head and shoulder lead over him in national polls. At best she barely has a lead, despite all his f ups. As a seasoned, establishment politician, I would think she would be winning handily at this point.

.......and despite all that he is polling close to her within the margin of error. Despite him being labeled " a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S", those negative attributes are right in line with her negatives. Strange.
