If there is any truth in this report then Robert Mueller's team will have a field day |:)

Felix Sater is a career criminal with ties to both organized crime and federal law enforcement, he partnered with Trump for years on a series of high-profile and unsuccessful real estate deals, including the Trump Soho hotel and condominium in Manhattan.

On Monday, the New York Times and the Washington Post disclosed a series of emails involving Sater's efforts in 2015 and 2016 to help the Trump Organization build a Trump Tower knock-off in Moscow. There's is a little hitch that makes that noteworthy: Trump was also running for president at the time.

"Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it," Sater wrote in an email to Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, in 2015. "I will get all of Putins team to buy in on this, I will manage this process.

One report I read last year detailed laundering Russian mafia money through Trump's casinos. We may hear more about this.

The Daily Beast reported on Thursday (http://www.thedailybeast.com/exclusive-mueller-enlists-the-irs-for-his-trump-russia-investigation) that Mueller has teamed up with agents from the IRS' unit dedicated to prosecuting financial crimes such as tax evasion and money laundering.

He's also teaming up with state prosecutors, because Trump can't pardon people convicted under state laws.

I'm surprised that no one has come along to tell us that the Clintons have killed 33 people...

Have they given up?

That is always a serious concern. One pundit opined that should he be impeached/lose the next election, he may need to be removed from the White House at gunpoint. That's the problem with whack jobs -- you just don't know which way they're going to jump. Perhaps suicide would be the better option....

I'm thinking 'heart attack', rather than 'suicide'.

Another connection to Russia.
No wait, umbrellas are not commonly carried in the US, so a jab in the leg won't hack it.

"Suicide" eh?

The fact that this talk is about is in it's way more disturbing than him continuing.

No doubt.

Still, the fact that he is clearly up to his ears in crime, fraud, sedition, treason, etc., etc., ad infinitum, is pretty disturbing 'in its way'.

Well, I'm aghast at him being in the White House but it's possible that Sater was just being a blowhard. Surely we would not heed criticism of one of "our guys" if it was as loose as this.

There is that, as well. The evidence so far indicates Sater's proposals had been ignored. What we don't know is what Mueller does know. In the end he may well give the guy a clean bill of health. Yet, that would not detract from the fact that Trump is an unstable narcissist. Leaving aside 'politics,' had he been a Democrat (he once registered as one) I would still need to distance myself from him. His instability, his need for constant adulation, have no place in the White House.

I wonder what George Washington might have to say to Mr. Trump.

George was a flaming, radical Leftist, after all.
