Doesnít matter. Trump promised that under his administration this kind of thing wouldnít happen.

It looks like it has been the norm under Trump and out in the open.

This nonsense is ridiculous. I oppose Trump in every possible way but get real people. Every administration and its enablers uses 'sweetners' to push through their agendas.
So its not just Trump and Co. who are guilty here. In fact the Trump circus has been a catalyst for fundamental change in our political system
Trump's abuse of power and corrup practice, has woken up America to his very clear and present danger to us all and our secular democratic rights.
That's why this mid-term election is so crucial in the fightback against the tyranny of religious extremism and corrupt politicians.

A Soulís Passage

Born into an existence designed to impose oblivion
You have at most about ten decades to remember
Brought here to be given antonyms to everything you know to be good
This cannot be a proper test to those who are content with the oblivion

Those of us who recognize that there was a before and will be an after
Cannot tolerate the constant pounding of the antonyms
The musts and shoulds of decades past
Are soon revealed as heresy to all that the gifted already knew to be right

Palaces, temples and monuments were not built to preserve that which is correct
They were constructed to mold and twist the masses to do right by the greedy
The greedy are not fully awake
They revel in the oblivion because it serves them so well

This isnít the first trip through this fog
This will not be the final trip in an attempt to clear it
The Universe is desperate to understand itself
We are all the dawdling heeding the enlightenment

Thus pondering how to wake up fully the next time around

Why not just condense this rambling and say even the Founders accepted that the evolution of American culture belonged to the next generations to shape the nation in line with new found wisdom and challenges.
America has stagnated in every area except the appeasement of a rich elite who knows if they keep us confused, afraid and fighting with each other. It gives them a free hand to rape our nation and keep us all in perpetual economic slavery. Vote Democrat and let's reclaim our secular democracy from these criminals.

So who is doing such a thing in the Trump administration?
This is a GOP fundraiser, Hillary was the democratic nominee for president.
You donít see a difference between a corrupt candidate running for president, and a private individual doing something illegal?

Manafort was being paid by a rich banker to use his influence in the WH to get him a job in the administration. Don't you read the news, or d'ya just soak up Fox like a mindless sponge?
