THE TRUMP SONS ARE EXPANDING LIKE CRAZY BUT SWEAR IT’S TOTALLY LEGAL
Their latest ventures include a new, more affordable chain of hotels in cities along the campaign trail.

The Post outlines a number of conflicts of interest the White House could face while remaining connected to Donald Jr. and Eric’s businesses:

Building new hotels, for example, could create issues — tax disputes, allegations of labor violations or environmental violations — that require federal departments to consider cases that could directly impact the president’s finances. And while the Trumps have vowed to sign no new foreign deals, pursuing a raft of new domestic contracts from coast to coast means the Trumps are likely to engage in negotiations with private developers, banks and investors who see additional benefits in doing business with the president’s company.

Scott Amey, a member of the watchdog group Project on Government Oversight told the Post, “It’s just going to add fuel to the fire that is already burning . . . with him having still a foot in both the boardroom and one in the Oval Office.”

A company owned by the family of Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, stands to receive more than $400 million from a prominent Chinese company that is investing in the Kushners’ marquee Manhattan office tower at 666 Fifth Ave.

The planned $4-billion transaction includes terms that some real estate experts consider unusually favorable for the Kushners. It provides them with both a sizable cash payout from Anbang Insurance Group for a property that has struggled financially and an equity stake in a new partnership.

The details of the agreement, which is being circulated to attract additional investors, were shared with Bloomberg. It would make business partners of Kushner Cos. and Anbang, whose murky links to the Chinese power structure have raised national security concerns over its U.S. investments. In the process, an existing mortgage owed by the Kushners will be slashed to about a fifth of its current amount.

2 Months In, Trump May Already Own A First: Most Corrupt POTUS. Ever.
Ethics experts cannot think of a predecessor more ready to use the prestige of the office for personal gain.

"“He should not use his official position to promote his businesses. That doesn’t make him a good businessman. That makes him a bad president,” said Richard Painter, the former top ethics lawyer for President George W. Bush’s White House.

Trump’s White House did not respond to emails for this story. And even some of his usual defenders declined to do so on this topic. “It’s the full employment act for people who write about ethics,” said one former campaign official on the condition he could speak anonymously.

Matt Mackowiak, a Texas-based GOP consultant who often defends Trump, said he couldn’t really offer a sincere defense on this one. “I think he enjoys being at his own properties. He has pride in them. He is comfortable in them. He feels he has a level of control over them,” he said. “Should he not be allowed to go to his own properties?”

He should not use his official position to promote his businesses. That doesn’t make him a good businessman. That makes him a bad president.”
— Richard Painter, former top ethics lawyer for George W. Bush’s White House
Trump’s behavior has no precedent, going back to at least the turn of the last century, ethics experts say. Even in the presidency most often associated with open corruption, it was Warren Harding’s Interior secretary, not Harding himself, who had taken bribes in the Teapot Dome oil lease scandal.

Presidents in recent years have taken care to place their assets in blind trusts, to eliminate possible perceptions of conflicts between their personal interests and those of the United States.

“I don’t think any president in modern history has had a serious conflict,” Painter said.

At a Jan. 11 news conference, though, Trump declared that the president of the United States was legally incapable of having any conflicts of interest, and that, if he chose to, he could serve as president while also running his businesses.

Rather than place his assets in a blind trust – in which he would not even know what holdings he owned, let alone be able to control them – Trump merely turned over temporary managerial control to his adult sons. And they, in turn, have been aggressively marketing the Trump brand abroad, taxpayer-provided Secret Service contingents in tow.

Eric Trump earlier this month even boasted about how well it is going. “I think our brand is the hottest it has ever been,” he told the New York Times.

Meanwhile, the family of his brother-in-law and top White House aide, Jared Kushner, is reportedly negotiating a deal with a Chinese firm that analysts are calling unusually favorable to the Kushners. It would allow them to dramatically reduce their liability on a nine-figure loan on a Manhattan high-rise. At the same time, Kushner has emerged as Trump’s informal but possibly most influential foreign policy negotiator and has already met with Chinese leaders among others.

Kushner’s wife, Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, has been the beneficiary of a different top Trump aide. Kellyanne Conway, reacting to news that department store chain Nordstrom was dropping Ivanka Trump’s clothing line because of poor sales, in a TV interview from the White House briefing room urged viewers to take action.

“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff,” Conway told Fox News on Feb. 9. “I’m going to give a free commercial here. Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer later said Conway had “been counseled” about her remarks – but Spicer himself had defended Trump’s involvement in the episode, saying he had every right to write angry tweets about Nordstrom because they picked on his daughter."

"FLASHBACK: Michael Flynn Said People Who Receive Immunity Are Probably Criminals" [VIDEO]

"Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said last year during the heat of the presidential campaign that people who accept immunity from the federal government “have probably committed a crime.”

Those comments, which Flynn made about Hillary Clinton aides during a Sept. 25 interview on “Meet the Press,” took on new significance on Thursday, following a report from The Wall Street Journal that the former national security adviser has told the FBI and Congress that he is willing to be interviewed in exchange for immunity from prosecution.

“Five people around [Clinton] have had, have been given immunity, to include her former Chief of Staff. When you are given immunity, that means that you have probably committed a crime,” Flynn told “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd.

Several Clinton aides — including her former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, State Department lawyer Heather Samuelson, and her computer technician Bryan Pagilano — received immunity in exchange for their cooperation with the FBI investigation into Clinton’s private email server. No charges were filed against Clinton or any of her aides in the case.

The Daily Caller has not confirmed The Journal’s report that Flynn has asked for immunity, but Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner, confirmed in a statement that he has been in discussions with congressional lawyers.

“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit,” Kelner said in a statement.

Flynn was fired 24 days into his job as Trump’s national security adviser after it emerged that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about phone calls he had with Russia’s ambassador. Flynn also retroactively registered as a foreign agent of Turkey for work he did during the presidential campaign".

"The Keystone Kops in the White House"

By John Cassidy March 31, 2017

"Just when you think things can’t get worse for the Trump Administration, it drops another clanger on itself."


“My fellow-Americans,” Donald Trump said in his weekly address on Friday, “It’s an exciting time for our country. Our new Administration has so much change under way— change that is going to strengthen our Union and improve so many people’s lives.”

It’s exciting, all right; in fact, it is hard to look away. Just when you think things can’t get worse for the Trump Administration, it drops another clanger on itself.

Three weeks ago, the White House unveiled its revised anti-Muslim travel ban, which the federal courts immediately froze, on constitutional grounds, just as they had blocked its predecessor. Last week, there was the ignominious failure of the G.O.P. health-care bill, which Trump had personally endorsed, although he seemed blissfully unaware of some of its contents. And this week there was the still-developing saga of Devin Nunes, the bumbling head of the House Intelligence Committee, who unwisely tried to do the President a favor and ended up being publicly humiliated.

It is now perfectly evident that Nunes, in claiming he had evidence that Trump and his aides had been caught up in “incidental surveillance” during the transition, was doing the White House’s bidding and trying to create a diversion from James Comey’s confirmation that the F.B.I. is investigating whether Trump’s campaign coördinated with Russia.

According to a Times report, Nunes obtained access to intelligence information from at least two Administration aides when he visited the White House on the night of March 21st, though he initially denied coördinating with anybody who works there. One of the White House staffers was reportedly a member of the National Security Council, and the other was a lawyer in the office of the White House counsel who used to work for Nunes’s committee on Capitol Hill.

So far, Nunes has managed to cling to his committee post, but he has about as much credibility left as a thief caught inside a bank vault. At Friday’s White House press briefing, Glenn Thrush, of the Times, asked Sean Spicer, Trump’s spokesman, whether it was normal for the head of an investigatory committee to roam the White House complex at night and meet two mid-level staffers to see sensitive information. Spicer didn’t have much of an answer, of course. But the larger story here goes beyond Nunes and his nocturnal wanderings.

It concerns the White House’s competence—or lack thereof. Ten weeks ago, when Trump stormed into office attacking the media and promising a blitzkrieg of new policies and initiatives during his first hundred days, the dominant emotion among people who hadn’t voted for him was fear. Many commentators, myself included, warned about the dangers of democratic erosion, and sales of George Orwell’s “1984” soared.

Today, there are still plenty of reasons to be concerned about Trump and his illiberalism. The White House’s recent decision to dismantle President Obama’s clean-air regulations offers fresh testament to the malevolence of the Trump Administration’s agenda, and next week’s meeting between Trump and Xi Jinping, China’s President, will be a reminder of the enormous responsibilities that rest on a President’s shoulders. But, even among ardent Trumpophobes, fear and foreboding have been supplemented by wonderment at the White House’s string of gaffes. These days, instead of Big Brother, it often looks like the Keystone Kops are in charge."

Recent financial filings by Kellyanne Conway reveal that she worked as a consultant for the Center for Medical Progress, the group responsible for the “undercover” Planned Parenthood videos released in 2015.

In the videos, CMP’s David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt represented themselves as employees of a biotech firm interested in purchasing fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood for research. Daleiden and Merritt are currently up against 15 felony charges in California for using false identities and recording conversations without the participants’ consent. The videos fanned the flames of anti-abortion advocates in states like Texas, where officials attempted to block Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood.

Although Texas lost that battle, the war is hardly over. On Thursday, the Senate voted to repeal the Obama administration’s rule on Title X that would prevent states from defunding health-care providers that also offer abortion. Vice-President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote to overturn the rule.

According to the rest of the filings, Conway also worked for the NRA, the American Conservative Union, Citizens United, Center for Security Policy, and assorted conservative groups.
