Just because you're not paying attention doesn't mean he hasn't been giving interviews, talking about his policies and answering questions. But, no worries, tonight he'll officially accept the party's nomination and present his plan, again.



I must of missed it during the big Cardi B interview.

I'm not sure about Bannon, but...


Kolfage specifically allegedly used his share for "home renovations, payments toward a boat, a luxury SUV, a golf cart, jewelry, cosmetic surgery, personal tax payments and credit card debt."

Yep we will see, here is Timcast on the story...

The panels Opinion does not matter though since Mueller concluded no collusion he could see.


That is not what he concluded. He documented no less that 11 cases of collusion. What he didn't, what he couldn't conclude was "conspiracy" with the Kremlin, Russian agents to influence the election.

But, Rodger Stone was colluding with WikiLeaks on the timing of the release of the stolen DNC documents and, allegedly, communicating with Donald Trump about the timing, apparently according to Grand Jury testimony.

We will have to see the whole indictment. The article lists some of the things Kolfage spent the money on and details how Bannon set up the siphoning of payments.




Kolfage, according to the charges, spent more than $350,000 of the donations on personal expenses, including cosmetic surgery, a luxury SUV, a golf cart, payments toward a boat, home renovations, jewelry, personal tax payments and credit card debt.

Special counsel Robert Mueller found no proof of collusion with Russia and made no conclusion about whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice.

Stop denying reality.

I. Summary of Major Findings

The redacted Mueller Report documents a series of activities that show strong evidence of collusion. Or, more precisely, it provides significant evidence that Trump Campaign associates coordinated with, cooperated with, encouraged, or gave support to the Russia/WikiLeaks election interference activities. The Report documents the following actions (each of which is analyzed in detail in Part II):

1. Trump was receptive to a Campaign national security adviser’s (George Papadopoulos) pursuit of a back channel to Putin.

2. Kremlin operatives provided the Campaign a preview of the Russian plan to distribute stolen emails.

3. The Trump Campaign chairman and deputy chairman (Paul Manafort and Rick Gates) knowingly shared internal polling data and information on battleground states with a Russian spy; and the Campaign chairman worked with the Russian spy on a pro-Russia “peace” plan for Ukraine.

4. The Trump Campaign chairman periodically shared internal polling data with the Russian spy with the expectation it would be shared with Putin-linked oligarch, Oleg Deripaska.

5. Trump Campaign chairman Manafort expected Trump’s winning the presidency would mean Deripaska would want to use Manafort to advance Deripaska’s interests in the United States and elsewhere.

He does tend to spend a lot of time playing golf at his fla. resort.

Yes, and still manages to get 100,000 times more positive things done for America and the American people than Obama, or any other President in modern times...

Enjoy your golfing, Mr. President!

This is rich indeed.
First Trump tells us Mexico is going to pay for that stupid wall that will never be completed.
(And people actually believed him.)
Then the taxpayers get put on the hook for it. (We saw that one coming.)
And when they needed more, they raided the military budget (an act that, if perpetrated by a democrat, would have the republicans rolling on the floor foaming at the mouth).
Now we see the original master of wingnut propaganda himself--Mr. Breitbart--indicted for fraud. Guess he wasn't so serious about keeping immigrants out. What a phony.

So hard to drain the swamp when so many of your former and current associates keep taking a dump in it.

I wonder if people who contributed to Bannon's build-the-black-gates-of-Mordor fund are feeling as used and betrayed as the folks who gave to the NRA only to find out they were funding lavish vacations and such?

Mexico has been paying with all the extra security they provide on their own soil.

It gets better too when some aspects of the new trade agreements start kicking in 😎

Hardcore Trumpers conform to confirmation bias, even if its lie, it makes them feel good.

Minds that don't have the strenght to resist such false urges are doomed to consume fake news almost all the time and never realize it.

So when you engage it, you're not met with logical and data derived data for thought provoking discussion, rather, "Reeeeeeee lie reeeeeee tRump reeee".


Fixed that for you.

Bull $$$$.

Collusion is not the description of a crime, conspiracy is. The Mueller report found none, using either word. Go ahead and provide a link to the imaginary part of the DEM report. I double dare you. It doesn't exist and you know it.

While you are at it why don't you post a link to the confidential grand jury testimony on Stone. You can't because it's confidential and you haven't ever seen it, and even if it did exist it's far from proof as grand jury testimony is secret and no defense testimony is allowed.

It's funny that CNN has suddenly stopped complaining about BARR's Department of Justice interfering in the election, by arresting people associated with presidential candidates.

I'm sure they will resume their rants when the next Obama Admin official is indicted, lol.

That is not the Mueller report, that is a DEM site analyzing the Mueller report and speculating on what they think the report should have included.

The 2nd paragraph in your link:

"As many experts have noted, what’s missing from the Mueller Report is the Special Counsel’s counterintelligence findings. We don’t know what the Special Counsel’s Office or the FBI have assessed, for example, with respect to whether Trump associates engaged in reciprocal efforts with Russian agents without entering a criminal agreement to do so, whether Americans have been witting or unwitting Russian assets, and what leverage or influence Moscow may have over particular individuals"

The Mueller report did not find any such collusion/conspiracy and the rest of the article is talking about what DEMs think it should have included, without any evidence, and after the 2+ year Mueller investigation found none of it.

This pissed me off but has nothing to do with Trump.

Bannon is a bag man. He was brought in by the Trump campaign to secure the electoral vote. Then he was an advisor for a few months. He knew the swamp. He was the swamp. That is why Trump used him the way he did.

Bannon is no friend. He testified 'against' Stone.

I hope he gets time for fraud. Using a political flashpoint to make money for himself and friends....

Collusion is not the description of a crime


The claim was made that the Mueller investigation found no evidence of collusion. That is false. The Mueller Report outlined no less than 11 incidents of "collusion".

The Senate Intel Committee released their final report, which includes their opinions of the Trump Campaigns collusion, including their opinion that Trump lied to the FBI and Mueller.
