Trump voters are either lying or delusional when they don't believe all the terrible things this administration has done.

I know you guys don't actually believe he's not a dirtbag, because no human being could possiby be that stupid.


Says the guy who blindly believes every piece of tabloid trash about Trump, because he's not Obama.

The cash belonged to Iran. Everybody heard this at the time. Some i guess chose not to believe it but that doesn't change the truth. That's your choice.




Yeah right, we had it in escrow for 40 yrs.

What other billions do we have in the bank?

Did they get interest too?

I have wondered why money from frozen accounts in the US had to be flown into Iran at night, as physical currency after being converted at another location.
Seems like a lot of work to free up money that was frozen in an account.
Why not just lift the embargo on the account and let them wire transfer the funds like countries normally do?



Because it was against existing law to do that.

I'm just surprised that Trump is the only corrupt politician in DC, I'm also kinda surprised he's been so successful at it with little to no prior experience

I think he is making a difference in a positive way .Its not like crap is not directed at him from every side including up and down . The system seems to be jamming up though and that might be whats needed . When the losers finally loose and know that they have lost they just go away . Maybe it was just a matter of killing some time and letting the swamp run out of it ...time that is .

I dont care if he is a dirtbag. There has never been a politician who was not a dirtbag. What I care about is if he is fostering a successful economy and putting the interests of this country first. Since you are in attack mode....

You take yourself seriously when your party is running their campaign in the shadow of a literal whore? Your economic platform is "more taxes"? How about we put some emphasis on eliminating things like the congressional butt-toucher fund and worry less about how Trump eats a hamburger with a fork and drinks 10 diet cokes each day.

No one will ever be convicted in this Russia investigation. Trump cannot even be charged while he is in office. Avenatti is entirely out of line for leaking info from an active investigation and should be admonished.

Two days ago, Michael Avenatti tweeted a screenshot from a CSPAN video which showed Michael Cohen getting into an elevator at Trump Tower with Ahmed al-Rumaihi and a handful of others. In a follow up tweet, Avenatti asked a question:


Michael Avenatti ‏Verified account @MichaelAvenatti

Why was Ahmed Al-Rumaihi meeting with Michael Cohen and Michael Flynn in December 2016 and why did Mr. Al-Rumaihi later brag about bribing administration officials according to a sworn declaration filed in court?

5:41 PM - 13 May 2018


The reference to bragging about a bribe comes from a crazy story involving rapper Ice Cube and a basketball league startup called BIG3. Ice Cube's partner in the venture is a man named Jeff Kwatinetz. Kwatinetz is the founder of Hollywood talent agency, The Firm. For a period beginning in the late 90's, Steve Bannon was partner at The Firm and the two men have remained friends.

Al-Rumaihi invested millions in BIG3. And then he started pressuring Kwatinetz to set up a meeting between Qatari officials and Steve Bannon. Kwatinetz didn't. According to Ice Cube and Kwatinetz's suit Al-Ruhaimi then failed to make good on the rest of the money he'd agreed to invest. Here's the significant bit referenced in Avenatti's tweet.

Here’s how Ice Cube figures in the Trump-Cohen mess


Kwatinetz testified that after investing in BIG3, Al-Ruhaimi repeatedly brought up Bannon and the Trump administration’s position on the trade embargo. Then, in January 2018, the two men went on a hike — and Al-Rumaihi said he had a message from Qatar for Bannon, according to Kwatinetz.

“Al-Rumaihi requested I set up a meeting between him, the Qatari government, and Steve Bannon, and to tell Steve Bannon that Qatar would underwrite all his political efforts in return for his support,” Kwatinetz testified.

Kwatinetz claims he responded he was “offended by this request,” but that the Qatari businessman replied that he’d already forged some kind of financial relationship with Michael Flynn.

“Al-Rumaihi laughed and then stated to me that I shouldn’t be so naive, that so many Washington politicians have taken our money, and stated ‘Do you think [Michael] Flynn turned down our money?” Kwatinetz testified.


That's a pretty serious claim by Kwatinetz and this effort for the Qataris to get access to Trump lines up with other recent stories like their interest in buying NewsMax, owned by Trump's pal Chris Ruddy.

Before I proceed, I'll note that Al-Rumaihi has now confirmedthrough a spokesperson that he was present at the Trump Tower meeting. Now screenshots of come out that show Cohen, Al-Rumaihi and Flynn together at Trump tower.

The last part, which is what the title references comes from a Daily Mail exclusive, citing an unnamed "Senior Kuwaiti official." I would say that since it's from Daily Mail, take it with a grain of salt but the reality is a The Gateway Pundit post citing a tweet from a random unknown is taken as gospel by some so make whatever you will of it.


Who cares? The Clintons have run a play for pay scheme for decades and nobody cares but now they do? Cause Trump?

When the left starts advocating for the Clintons to go down for this kind of stuff, then I'll give a crap. Till then......stuff it.

And to top it all off there was never any money exchanged? Just that "allegedly" some Qatari tried to bribe?

Jesus, if this is the best you guys can come up with yoh should stop wasting everyone's time with is nonsense.

18 months and virtually nothing to show for it. But with 2 clicks I can verify 10's of millions funneled to the Clintons by the Saudis, Omanis, Kuwaitis, Aussies, Brits and at least 15 more country's.

But no one cares about that.


What a frigging joke this entire farce is. But go ahead and keep highlighting the utter stupidity and hypocrisy of the left for us.

@OP: I sincerely appreciate your effort and decorum. But damn dude, at this point, who are you trying to convince (that connotes a number of meanings -- you seem brave enough to understand it for what it 'means') on ATS of DJT's et. al. misdeeds and underhandedness? Is it self-flagellation?? Is it an act of altruism (I hope so, but since SCOTUS ruled in favor of the 10th on Monday, I'm taking 'the under'), attempting to shine light onto the truth??? What gives?

ATS is awesome, but you seem banal and unapologetic w.r.t. the possibility you just may, in the slimmest of cases, have it wrong.*

*Wrong is relative, but your baseline is several deviations from the norm -- the ATS threads are there to prove the case.

Watching Donald Trump do his deceptive schemes and the way he deceives not only himself but others and the massive corruption he is undertaking right before our eyes remind me of the movie The Devils Advocate. There Al Pacino playing the devil made a classic speech at the end of the movie and said that when his crew takes over they would be so massively and blatantly corrupt that the stench would be so foul it would reach heaven.


I think we're seeing some kind of simulation of that movie's last scene





And yet we can find you shilling and carrying water for the Clintons Crime Cabal in every thread involving Hillary.

Beat it with your blatant hypocrisy.

Who cares? The Clintons..


Just wanted to quote that from the two posts above. For everyone to see. If you’re on the right wing and care about this country, this is who you’re backing by not calling out Trump when he does something shady.

People who couldn’t care less whether or not the leaders of our country are dirty. As long as it’s their guy. Politics before country and the citizens in it. Every time. By following the mob and giving the president a pass you’re no better than the people you claim to hate. You are the Clintons, you are Obama, because your apathy is enabling the new crooks that are running the country.

Plain and simple. By giving Trump a pass on corruption, you turn into everything you hate. And that’s pretty much it. An empire that is destroyed from the outside can rise again. But one that falls from the inside is destined for the dust bins of history. Bye bye America.

I sincerely hope you all had fun “triggering” or whatever you’re telling yourselves you’re doing. Enjoy it while you can. Your apathy is the road map for the next generation of tyrants, and I count myself proud not to be one of you.
