Ex-Congressman's Russian Bank Loses License for Money Laundering

Source: Bloomberg

A regional Russian bank owned by a former U.S. congressman had its license revoked Friday for violations that included breaking rules against money laundering.

Commercial Bank of Ivanovo, in which Republican former North Carolina Representative Charles Taylor owns an 80 percent stake, regularly broke anti-money laundering regulations, misrepresented the size of its provisions and used “schemes” to artificially inflate its capital, according to a central bank statement.

Gee, sounds a lot like tRump... What's with these Republicans and the Russians? Have they always been in bed together???

I like Michael Bennet... Is he a choice yet?

Gave another great speech in the Senate the other day...

Does Bill Barr ever come out from hiding? I don't believe I've seen him since the confirmation...

You would think he might have to answer to the people and the press sometimes.

Trump's Labor Department Does McDonald's Another Solid

Source: Huffington Post

The Trump administration is rolling out a plan that would help insulate big franchisers from allegations of wage theft.

You know those feel good McDonald's adds about how they help their employees get their educations. I guess it's not McDonald's, it's the local franchise. McDonald's will have nothing to do with the local labor. All McDonald's has to do with the store is the name, a big cut of the profits, and none of the liability. It's good to be king.

If Lucy Flores isn't claiming #MeToo as she just says, Let it drop...

Invasion of personal space is too subjective of a standard to impose. Some people get upset if you get within 2 feet when you are talking to them. If it's invasion of personal space, that must be addressed immediately.

Drive it home. If tRump was innocent, the Mueller report would have been released.

That is the only talking point that needs to be said. If tRump is innocent there is no excuse for hiding the report from members of Congress that are allowed to access classified materials. End of story.

How long can the # thing be on twitter? Why not try, #IfTrumpWasInnocentWeWouldHaveTheFullReport...

or something like that... I know it's not as good a 10 million person march on Washington, but that's how they do it now days, isn't it?

Release the unredacted Mueller Report to Congress now. The people can see it later...

Lindsey Graham probably already had a sneak peak at dinner the other night. Now the Republicans gather and plan for two weeks to a month what to redact and how to spin the redacted report. What to hide to make sure it ends in a long court fight. How to spread more propaganda of the Democrats being poor losers.

This is BS and a coverup. Release the god damn report.

Release the Kraken! ...er the Report!!!

We want the REPORT and we want it...

tRump, the music is over.
