‘A complete rip-off’: Campaign-finance experts puzzled and stunned by Trump camp’s reported ‘money-bomb’ ploy

Older donors who gave a few hundred dollars to former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign said they were shocked to see thousands drained from their accounts. Refund requests jumped in the final months of the campaign. The ensuing surges in credit-card-fraud claims associated with Trump got on the radar of the US’s biggest banks.

That’s all according to a New York Times investigation published Saturday that detailed a recurring-donation scheme it said was referred to as “the money bomb,” which the Trump campaign used to pad its coffers in the final months of the campaign through the GOP fundraising platform WinRed.

‘AQUAMAN 2’ PETITION AGAINST AMBER HEARD TOPS 1.6 MILLION SIGNATURES

Being a wealthy movie star protects famous folks in many ways but they pay a price in having embarrassing personal business exposed.

‘Slow-motion insurrection’: How GOP seizes election power

In the weeks leading up to the deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, a handful of Americans — well-known politicians, obscure local bureaucrats — stood up to block then-President Donald Trump’s unprecedented attempt to overturn a free and fair vote of the American people.

‘The perfect target’: Russia cultivated Trump as asset for 40 years – ex-KGB spy

Donald Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over 40 years and proved so willing to parrot anti-western propaganda that there were celebrations in Moscow, a former KGB spy has told the Guardian.

Yuri Shvets, posted to Washington by the Soviet Union in the 1980s, compares the former US president to “the Cambridge five”, the British spy ring that passed secrets to Moscow during the second world war and early cold war.

Now 67, Shvets is a key source for American Kompromat, a new book by journalist Craig Unger, whose previous works include House of Trump, House of Putin. The book also explores the former president’s relationship with the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

‘This is how I’m going to die’: Officers describe horrors of Jan. 6 riot

Four police officers who defended the Capitol from a Jan. 6 riot by Donald Trump supporters spoke out Tuesday during the first hearing of the select committee investigating the attack, sharing harrowing details of their physical and mental trauma.

As the riot fades from public memory amid a new wave of Republican revisionism, select panel members aimed to cast the hearing — the first time Congress has heard publicly from law enforcement on the front lines of the response to Jan. 6 — as a vivid reminder of what happened.

Smith Jr., I. – Min (TE)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Irv Smith, TE, Minnesota Vikings (6/23) Advice: Irv Smith will be one of the favorite breakout candidates in the Fantasy Football industry this season. The 22-year-old will no longer share targets with Kyle Rudolph, which makes him draftable as early as Round 9 as a borderline top-10 tight end. While Smith took a small step forward in 2020, he could take a leap with consistent targets. Six times in his short career he’s received at least five targets in a game. In those games he averaged 11.6 PPR Fantasy points, which would have made him the No. 5 tight end in Fantasy last year. Don’t draft him that high, but he’s an excellent choice if you miss out on the top eight at the position. (CBSSports.com)

Meet Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization CFO prosecutors are reportedly trying to flip

During the past several years of criminal investigations, Congressional inquiries, and political battles over Donald Trump’s taxes and business dealings, the one man most intimately familiar with them has remained out of the spotlight.

The mustachioed, press-shy Allen Weisselberg has served as the Trump Organization’s Chief Financial Officer for decades, as well as Trump’s personal bookkeeper. Now, he’s reportedly the subject of a wide-ranging inquiry from the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.

Prosecutors are looking into “flipping” Weisselberg into cooperating with an investigation into Trump’s finances, according to the Washington Post. Weisselberg, 73, has loyally served the Trump family since the 1970s and is the only person not a member of Trump’s family to oversee his trust while he was president. Prosecutors are reportedly zeroing in on Weisselberg’s two sons, both of whom also have close ties to the company.

Goff, J. – Det (QB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Jared Goff, QB, Detroit Lions (6/23) Advice: Now that he’s with the Lions, Jared Goff figures to be among the least popular Fantasy quarterbacks in 2021 drafts. Not only has his Fantasy production declined over each of the past three seasons, but he finds himself in Detroit’s rebuilding offense rather than in the comforting and aggressive offense in Los Angeles. Not that it matters, but Goff is coming off a career-high in completion rate but a four-year low in passing touchdowns and a three-year low in passing yards. It’s hard to expect a rebound from Goff considering his opponents: three tough divisional defenses twice each along with matchups against the NFC West and AFC North. Between that and his declining profile, there’s no reason to spend a draft pick on Goff except in two-QB formats as a low-end, mid- to late-round starter. (CBSSports.com)

The 6 big questions we may now get answered on Donald Trump’s taxes

We’re going to see Donald Trump’s taxes. Or, to be totally clear about it, we are very likely to see the former president’s taxes — following a Friday ruling by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel’s office that said that the returns must be turned over to Congress.

“The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee has invoked sufficient reasons for requesting the former President’s tax information,” read the opinion, which is the latest development in a two-year fight between the Trump administration and House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal over the billionaire businessman’s tax returns.
