The 20 Big Promises to Trump Voters That He’s Broken in Just One Year

But who's counting?.. 1. He told you he’d cut your taxes, and that the super-rich like him would pay more. You bought it. But his new tax law does the opposite. By 2027, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center, the richest 1 percent will have got 83 percent of the tax cut and the richest 0.1 percent, 60 percent of it. But more than half of all Americans — 53 percent — will pay more in taxes. As Trump told his wealthy friends at Mar-a-Lago just days after the tax bill became law, “You all just got a lot richer.”

Trump is “Living The Dream.”

Jared Kushner Agrees To Comply With House Democrats’ Document Requests, Salacious Affairs and All

The wheels of justice move slowly, but, ultimately, they grind exceedingly fine. As you recall, a few weeks ago the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, (D-NY) asked 81 individuals and entities for records in their possession relating to the Committee’s investigation of corruption, obstruction of justice and ethics violations within the administration — standard Trump bill of fare, in other words. And the reply was likewise standard Trumpian. He lied and said that Obama never complied with any Congressional request, no siree, he stonewalled. Right. From 2011 – 2016 the Obama White House produced hundreds of thousands of documents to Congress on Solyndra, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, CAFE standards rule, Deep Water Horizon spill, ACA, ACA website, Clean Water Rule, and Ft Hood shooting. https://t.co/V3qA99TBxm — Eric Schultz (@EricSchultz) March 5, 2019 In any event, it’s an apples and snake fruit discussion, as usual, when Trump compares his circus side show to Obama’s scandal-free terms in office. Obama’s personal finances were never the subject of scrutiny, and he didn’t have relatives traveling around the world seeking to barter access to the office of the president and nuclear technology, in order to rescue themselves from their own perilous financial predicaments. There is no comparison between the two administrations, never was, never will be. In all events, Kushner is one of the 81 individuals/entities that was presented with a documents request, and according to his lawyer, Abbe Lowell, he has agreed to comply. The Hill: Kushner has also been asked to turn over any records related to the Trump Organization’s discussions to build a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 election, the publishing of hacked Democratic emails by WikiLeaks, hush money payments made to women alleging affairs with the president, contacts between the Trump campaign and Russia as well as events that unfolded within the administration, like the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, is one of several members of Trump’s family who have been asked for documents. Democrats have also asked for documents from Trump Jr. and the president’s other son, Eric Trump. Democrats did not specifically ask for documents from Kushner’s wife, Ivanka Trump, although they did ask for information related to her. The panel is also asking Kushner to shed light on internal administration matters like Trump’s contacts with his former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker regarding topics like special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, as well as the Southern District of New York (SDNY), which is probing the hush money payments. Kushner should know where the bodies are buried better than almost anyone. With respect to the document request relating to the firing of James Comey, Kushner is the ne plus ultra expert on that topic, being as how it was his idea in the first place. Trump went along with it, despite the screaming objections of Steve Bannon, who told Trump it was the worst move he could make, the “biggest mistake in modern political history,” to quote him. Bannon’s opinion was that the Comey investigation, if allowed to run it’s course, would have wrapped up in a few months. Bannon told MSNBC last year that he was a “witness of fact” to issues of collusion and obstruction. It will be interesting to see what issues Kushner is asked to testify about, after the initial […]
