Just facts gene. Just facts. Trump is the cleanest president ever

Forbes magazine reported on June 1, "ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams said on The View that 'all signs point to a likely indictment' of former President Donald Trump.

"Noting that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. has convened a special grand jury to consider evidence in the criminal investigation into Trump’s business dealings, Abrams said 'those of us in the media always want to try to be careful,' but 'you don’t get a grand jury like this unless they believe they have evidence of a crime...so all the evidence, all the signals are towards a likely indictment of someone, if not more than one person.'"

The story later said, "The View co-host Joy Behar, however, was skeptical. 'Trump has gotten away with impeachment, he’s gotten away with inciting a riot at the Capitol, he got away in the Mueller investigation...what makes you think they’re going to get him this time?'

"Abrams said 'this is different...here we’re not talking about Donald Trump as president with the protections the president has...in this sense, he’s being treated just like everybody else.'"

Behar and Abrams laid out the case for declaring the cleanest president ever because no one else in American history has been investigated so often by so many people and never been charged with any crime.

His accusers, however, are another matter. The media played up Michael Avenatti as a David about to smote the Goliath president. Avenatti appeared on CNN 74 times and on MSNBC 57 times in a 10-week period in 2018, a record for a creepy porn lawyer.

He went on Tucker Carlson's show.

Once.



That chyron is the height of Tucker Carlson's journalistic career.

Brilliant!

By playing Avenatti up as the man who would bring down Trump, the media in essence vouched for him.

Three years later we discovered he tried to extort millions from Nike.

We also discovered that he bilked 5 clients of millions of dollars in settlement money. The victims include Geoffrey Johnson, a paraplegic man.

The Daily Beast reported, "Avenatti had represented Johnson in a lawsuit against Los Angeles County, after a suicide attempt left him paraplegic, and negotiated a $4 million settlement.

"As The Daily Beast reported, police picked Johnson up during a mental-health episode in 2011 and transferred him from the hospital to jail. Despite warnings from his family, jail staff didn’t put Johnson on suicide watch and he tried to hang himself, leading to his permanent disability.

"Johnson, however, never saw this settlement. According to prosecutors, Avenatti made small incremental payments to Johnson totaling $124,000 after moving his funds to accounts linked to Avenatti and his moribund coffee chain.

"Avenatti purchased the now-defunct Seattle-based Tully’s Coffee in 2014 and, within years, the company racked up a nearly $5 million federal tax bill."

The media slept with the creepy porn lawyer and is now shocked to discover he is creepy.

The Washington-based media lives in a swamp. It assumes that everyone is a swamp critter, Naturally, it believed that Donald Trump did something crooked in his life and it was only a matter of time before those real sharp-as-a-whip geniuses at the FBI figured out what crime he had committed.



But they didn't. They could not nail Donald Trump on anything. Even when they ran roughshod over lawyer-client privilege and seized his lawyer's records, the FBI could not pin anything on Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has no secrets from the government.

The feds have everything on him. His tax records. Notes on his private talks with this lawyer. Uncounted hours of tapes from when Obama spied on his campaign. Likely, even more tapes from when the FBI and NSA spied on him in the White House.

And they have nothing.

Not one thing.

Stalin's secret police chief, Lavrentiy Beria, is famous for saying (in Russian), "Show me the man and I'll show you the crime." After Stalin died, someone showed Beria's crime and he was executed.

They keep showing and showing Donald Trump but they never show a crime.

Mafia DONS were clean also until RICO. So it is odd that the cleanest president ever is... or was surrounded by the dirtiest entourage ever...so he has nothing to worry about then. Let them investigate...but if they find him dirty you won't believe it anyway...just like when they found no wrong doing with Hillary after NUMEROUS investigations hardcore right don't believe it. Believing only what re-inforces your already made up mind is the trait of someone not able to distinguish truth ...guilt...or innocence by evaluating all the info. Nothing wrong with that...it's just a weakness many have.

The FED says inflation will be transitory...

"Transitory" doesn't always mean temporarily...

The meteor that hit earth and killed off all the dinosaurs was also transitory, but it had a permanent and lasting effect on the planet...

The Trump effect cannot be stopped imo. SEALs have a new target: Congress

Paul Bedard

Washington’s greatest hope for political bipartisanship and action may be in the hands of the nation’s most lethal outfit — U.S. Navy SEALs.

In a show of political force never before seen, five retired SEALs are running for House seats in 2022, hoping to join Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw, who is expected to win a third term.

“We all believe Congress is a place where you can make a sizable impact, and I think that’s why a lot of us are trying to get there,” said first-time Republican candidate Eli Crane of Arizona, a winner on the Shark Tank investor TV show.

“I personally believe that Americans, and that includes people on the Left, are really looking for a group that they understand that they can intuitively trust to do something better,” said Derrick Van Orden, who nearly won in 2000 and who is again challenging Wisconsin Democratic Rep. Ron Kind in 2022.
The “old man” of the group, former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, a former Montana House member running to return to Congress, said that while they are all Republican Party faithful, the SEALs “caucus” could have an outsize impact on bridging the political gap in Washington.

“I’m gonna win,” said Zinke, already endorsed by former President Donald Trump. “But I guess I'm reluctant because I know what D.C. has become. It is fixable. If I didn't think it was fixable, I wouldn't do it. We got to learn to work together as a nation. I don't think the biggest threats are Russia, China, or even Iran. I think it’s the division within this country,” he said from Kalispell, Montana.
