    I was watching the news this weekend and they kept talking about the democrats trying to impeach Trump. I was thinking, this might be their strategy to steal the 2020 election: They could impeach Trump at the last minute and that would effectively prevent him from running again, and there would be no good Republican candidates left with any time to campaign, leaving the election wide open for the democrats. So they might delay any impeachment as long as they can then hit him with it at the last minute.
    Why would impeachment prevent Trump from running again?

    I figure it is tantamount to an being indicted for a crime and the congress saying he is not worthy to be President.

    Yeah, but that would only be the Democrat controlled House, so I think it would fire up Trump's base and work FOR him, rather than against him. I think that's why Pelosi is trying to resist impeachment.


    Pelosi clashes with fellow Dems in closed-door debate on impeachment


    "House Democratic leaders sparred internally on Monday over whether to begin an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, with Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her allies rejecting the call to move forward for now, according to multiple sources."

    Yes, well, you’re a little bit strange yourself. I, unlike you, can see through the headlines;
    Deutsche Bank staff flagged Trump, Kushner transactions for watchdog: NYTimes
    ,
    and so on.

    I searched the Times' front page for Kushner, and there's nothing about this story. Must not be a big deal.

    Ok, found the story, and yeah, it's nothing. A few anonymous employees claim they saw suspicious activity on Trump's account; their bosses looked into and found nothing. The end.

    This is Bloomberg:

    Multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by President Donald Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner aroused the suspicion of anti-money laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank AG in 2016 and 2017, according to the New York Times.

    The specialists recommended the matter be referred to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes, but executives at Deutsche Bank -- which has lent billions of dollars to the Trump and Kushner companies -- rejected their advice, the newspaper reported on Sunday.

    Trump on Monday defended his banking practices on Twitter, disputing the Times’ reporting that no other mainstream banks wanted to do business with him. “WRONG!” Trump wrote. “It is because I didn’t need money.”

    You are making stuff up now. The bosses took no action. That does not mean that the activity should not have been reported.

    From the Times:

    "Real estate developers like Mr. Trump and Mr. Kushner sometimes do large, all-cash deals, including with people outside the United States, any of which can prompt anti-money laundering reviews. The red flags raised by employees do not necessarily mean the transactions were improper. Banks sometimes opt not to file suspicious activity reports if they conclude their employees’ concerns are unwarranted."

    These are transactions with Russians and he lied about his Russian contacts. Why?
    You would be a hopeless detective.
