Misadventures of a minority-elect President 66

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

Our lackluster leader hiring officials that worked for appointed President George W. Bush – since it worked so well the first time, considering making a deal to appoint another corrupt, alt-right wing U.S. Supreme Court ‘Justice,’ Trump’s deep links to organized crime, the list of lies from our Liar-in-Chief keeps growing, trying to blame his predecessor for his profoundly corrupt ignorance, why Trump is vulnerable to impeachment, our wannabe dictator celebrates Turkey’s dictator, Trump’s do-nothing presidency, Trump’s Obama-bashing hypocrisy, making more baseless promises he won’t be able to keep, emoluments clause violations could haunt our minority-elect President, more on the dipshittery over Trump’s tax returns, refusing to disclose information while shrouding everything in secrecy raises red flags over his treachery and deceptions, Georgia election GOP upset could be the start of something big, the anti-Trump resistance is growing, Ivanka’s corruption and ethics issues reveal she truly is a daddy’s girl, shutting down American-style authoritarianism, despite his constant bashing – and badmouthing – Trump and Obama have a lot in common, the real cost of Trump’s ‘fake news’ accusations and lots more.

Yet even the “mother of all bombs” cannot obliterate the accumulating body of evidence about his relationship with Russian organized crime figures and the not unrelated question about whether he and his entourage colluded with Russian officials in the 2016 presidential election. The story, notes Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, is “Hiding in plain sight.”

The evidence of pre-election collusion between Trump and the Russians, while growing, is far from definitive. The evidence on Trump’s organized crime ties is stronger. Says Marshall:
