Trump finally tweets about the charitable foundation


Well, one of them.

Conservative nonprofit with obscure roots and undisclosed funders paid Matthew Whitaker $1.2 million

Source: Washington Post

In the three years after he arrived in Washington in 2014, Matthew G. Whitaker received more than $1.2 million as the leader of a charity that reported having no other employees, some of the best pay of his career.

The Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust described itself as a new watchdog nonprofit dedicated to exposing unethical conduct by public officials. For Whitaker, it became a lucrative steppingstone in a swift rise from a modest law practice in Iowa to the nationís top law enforcement job. As FACTís president, he regularly appeared on radio and television, often to skewer liberals.

But FACTís origins and the source of funding used to pay Whitaker ó now the acting attorney general ó remain obscured. An examination of state and federal records, and interviews with those involved, show that the group is part of a national network of nonprofits that often work in concert to amplify conservative messages.

Contrary to its claims in news releases and a tax filing, the group was created under a different name two years before Whitakerís arrival, according to incorporation and IRS records. At least two of the organizers were involved in another conservative charity using the same address.

The more we hear about Whitaker, the more crooked he looks. No wonder Trump chose him.

Does anyone even know if there are plans on throwing rocks?

Has anyone asked this question? I mean, suddenly we hear about rock throwing from the caravan people, but as far as I can tell it all comes from Trump. Is there any evidence of potential rock throwing or is Trump just pulling it out of his ass as usual?
