Unbelievable.

But just watch, the Republican Congress will claim this is all sour grapes, and about election losses. That the Framers of the Constitution were fine with the possibility that Presidents could be enriched by foreign powers, because every President would be of such high moral character that the prospect of getting rich(er) wouldn't possibly have any impact on their decisions etc.

With Gigabytes of data-mining code and an A.I. that can beat the world champion at the most complex game on Earth, they can't tell where their money comes from?
I call BS. I bet the accountants know, for maximum tax-evasion purposes. :)

Maybe we should find paying federal tax to me more trouble than it's worth.

Yet another middle finger for the American people and their political system.
