Journalist Dan Rather has been watching the entire Trump debacle unfold since day one and he sees the corruption for the wide-sweeping effort that it is. Donald Trump is not doing all these misdeeds on his own, he has lots of help.

Bear in mind that Rather is a man who has been on the front lines of America’s most compelling stories, starting with the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas and working through Vietnam and Watergate. Richard Nixon was also a man who despised the press and he particularly detested Rather, who was assigned to cover the White House. Rather has a sharp eye for the truth.

As you are aware, the United States military has made unusual visits to Trump’s resort in Scotland, leading to speculation that government funds have been misappropriated for the purpose of propping up the failing property.  Politico:

…the military has spent $11 million on fuel at the Prestwick Airport — the closest airport to Trump Turnberry — since October 2017, fuel that would be cheaper if purchased at a U.S. military base. The letter also cites a Guardian report that the airport provided cut-rate rooms and free rounds of golf at Turnberry for U.S. military members.

Taken together, the incidents raise the possibility that the military has helped keep Trump’s Turnberry resort afloat — the property lost $4.5 million in 2017, but revenue went up $3 million in 2018.

“The Defense Department has not produced a single document in this investigation,” said a senior Democratic aide on the oversight panel. “The committee will be forced to consider alternative steps if the Pentagon does not begin complying voluntarily in the coming days.”

Trump didn’t get the GOP nomination out of the blue. They were fully aware of what an unqualified fool he was, the punchline to a joke and yet they chose to put him at the top of their ticket. They own this shitshow, lock stock and barrel.

In just the past week, stories have broken about William Barr scheduling a holiday party at the Trump International and Mike Pence staying at a Trump property on the other side of Ireland, all for the purposes of enriching Trump. Donald Trump and the GOP are looting the public coffers. They all need to be held accountable. Dan Rather is right. Look at the big picture and get it in focus for what it truly is — which is a bloodless coup by the most corrupt political establishment in our nation’s history, namely this iteration of the GOP, under it’s true leader, which is Moscow Mitch McConnell, the king of complicity.

The corruption has become so rampant, you would expect the majority of citizens of this great country to be totally outraged. Yet, I read the local newspapers and watch the local news, and they barely, if ever, touch upon any of this. It’s going to be a pretty heavy lift for the the Democrats in congress to get our complacent country-persons to even pay attention.

Most local news doesn’t cover Washington DC at all, unless it directly affects them. That’s the kind of story you get in national news coverage.

Most local news stations have been bought out by Sinclair a very right-wing organization so doubt they would allow anything negative about trump which is sad as they should have all news.

I saw one story that said that the other hotels with facilities Barr could have used were booked up for the date he wanted. I don’t know if it’s true – but I’m wondering why he needs a party that big for his birthday. Most of us, by his age, prefer to ignore them.

If I owned a hotel, I’d be booked up too for any date that was his birthday.

Boy this article is right on I have saying Mitch is all about the court an power. Since I heard him say he was going to make Obama a term president and he did in so many way. It’s our turn now Moscow Mitch needs everything he dished out to escort him out the door never to return. This is garbage out.

The longer the dems put off making him take responsibility for his crimes, the bolder he becomes!
