Amid Signs of 'Cronyism, Nepotism, and Conflicts of Interest,' Watchdog Demands Probe of Trump-ZTE Dealings

Jake Johnson, staff writer

Highlighting the appearance of "cronyism, nepotism, abuses of power, and conflicts of interest" in U.S.

Is it any wonder that the king of sleazy dealings is shiting all over the rules and regulations and just plain decency ? What did anyone really expect from this self agrandized moron ? That he would start doing good for mankind ? If he gets the Nobel peace prize we will never hear the end of it.

Clearly the people benefitting from Trumpian criminality are the lawyers and the rich. While this circus goes on the rest of those being harmed are in disarray waiting for some political party to save them. Time we rose up, no?? Boycots, daily strikes to be followed by total non cooperation.

“Some political party?”  That’ll be the day!!!   The two halves of the Duopoly are too busy partying on Fat-Cat “campaign contributions” to worry about those being harmed, and none of the minor parties is potent enough
to matter.  Our only hope is that Kim Jong Un will dry out the swamp with a nice, hot nuke!

Nixon was impeached on far lesser charges. Bill Clinton impeached (attempted) for frivelous immoral behaviour unrelated to government work. I can’t believe Trump is still president committing high crimes and misdemeaners on daily bases.


#6

The moral collapse of our government is complete.


#7

This is how our government now works. It is the ultimate culmination of unfettered capitalism and its ugly and morally bankrupt. Get used to it because it isn’t going anywhere and it’s going to get even worse. They will take until we rise up and stop them and that obviously is just plain not happening. Most still go back to the voting both like a crack addict going back to his pipe…and accomplishing just about as much. Sadly their education is coming, but by the time they learn it will have already been way to late. Hell it’s too late now…

This has got to be the most overt example of Trump’s misuse of office to date. It is ample proof of his underhanded conniving and self serving malfeasance of office. This may not be his first impeachable offense but it isn’t a coverup but an out and out quid pro quo. Down with the conniving bastard!
Hey World, Get in line to buy America, we ain’t cheap but we can be had!


#9

Look at it this way.

Robert Mueller can never be said to have a lack of evidence to support felony criminal proceedings against this crook.


#10

Our oligarchs and oligarchs of the world have been raping and pillage for decades now they are here in America and NOTHING GETS DONE ABOUT IT. Look to Congress, they are looking to cash in.


#11

Yeah, and now he’s starting a trade war with Canada and Mexico


#12

Naomi Klein wrote Shock Doctrine: Disaster Capitalism in 2004 approx and exposed the robber barons/oligarchs/corporate conglomerates raping and pillaging around the world. Did we not think it would come to our doorstep. It has been here for a decades and all the presidents have been complicit Trump and all of them being in our faces now that they are robbing us blind.


#13

I hope he has the will. Trump will be naked without the Party of No’s majorities. Sorry for that mind movie.


#14

The French wouldn’t put up with this crap. They know full well when someone is eating their lunch let alone most of the other meals as well. If this gets bad enough so will we, Madam Guillotine awaits the children of today’s power mongers.

The “real wage” in China has TRIPLED since 2008; in the US it has stagnated


#16

His voters should be very happy that he is bailing out a Chinese company rather than creating jobs here. Maybe some of them will move to China to take advantage of jobs at XTE.


#17

This is the reason the USSR collapsed not the clown Reagan. America did not get the message, so here we are.

A friend got a free ZTE government give out phone after filling out an application at a table set up outside Walmart. I guess it would be called a Trump phone. That phone is so heavy, it feels like it weighs a half pound unlike earlier give out phones by the same maker. What could account for the weight, I’m puzzled.


#19

No! No! It’s the Democrats! Forget the Republicans! It’s down with the Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary! Кривые демократы! Кривые демократы! Кривая Хиллари! Кривые демократы! Кривые демократы! Кривая Хиллари! (oops) Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Democrats! Crooked Hillary!..

(interesting fact: “Хиллари” is pronounced “Killary” - So now you know where the alt/right-left “Hilalry-Killary” meme came from…)

Most of trumps voters don’t even know where China is.
