Palmer Report: Donald Trump campaign now facing accusations of cyberterrorism, kidnapping, murder and other crimes

Donald Trump promised to “drain the swamp” and drive the corruption out of politics. Instead, he and his campaign and his administration have turned out to be the most corrupt in United States history. The accusations against Trump and his advisers now consist of a wide variety of crimes including money laundering, conspiracy against the United States, obstruction of justice, mafia ties, cyberterrorism, and no kidding conspiracy to commit kidnapping and mass murder.This week NBC News reported that a suspected Russian mobster tried to coordinate with the Donald Trump campaign during the election, and that Jared Kushner was aware of it, and that he tried to cover it up by omitting it from his White House security clearance forms (link); lying on the forms is a felony. Earlier in the week it was reported that Donald Trump Jr spent the general election coordinating with Russian-controlled cyberterrorist site WikiLeaks (link). That’s only the half of it.

Elsewhere, Newsweek is reporting that Donald Trump’s former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn conspired with the government of Turkey to kidnap a guy in Pennsylvania (link). Flynn denies the accusation, but it’s serious enough that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is pursuing it. That means the next arrest in the Trump-Russia scandal could astonishingly be for conspiracy to commit kidnapping. Somehow, that isn’t even the most serious or headline-grabbing charge involved.

The government of Ukraine has accused Donald Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort of being involved in a plot which resulted in the murder of a number of political protesters, dating back to when Manafort was doing work for the Kremlin in Ukraine (link). So we may also be looking at murder charges in the Trump-Russia scandal. Manafort is already under house arrest, awaiting trial for charges including money laundering and conspiracy against the United States. Donald Trump didn’t drain the swamp. He is the swamp.

Donald Trump | The Guardian: We Were Eight Years in Power by Ta-Nehisi Coates review on white supremacy

Trumps election was a case of erasing a black president with extreme prejudice, argues the hugely influential writer in this essay collection on race in the USIt is no surprise that the election of the first black president of the United States would occasion much thinking, writing and talking about the subject of race in America. An event that many did not think would happen in their lifetimes, happened: a man of African descent and this may have been more culturally important his black wife and children resided in the White House as the nations first family. President Barack Obamas portrait would hang in government offices across the country, and in embassies around the world. He would be the commander-in-chief of the countrys armed services.How proud this made Americans of all races. For black people, who had seen the rules of the game rigged against them in the most immoral ways slavery and Jim Crow, and their aftermath having a black man compete for and win the greatest prize in politics was beyond exhilarating. Yes We Can! That phrase, the Obama campaigns insistent motto, also tapped into the desires of many of Obamas white supporters who wished to produce evidence that there had indeed been racial progress in the country, including some who may have had a few doubts about the one-term senator with the non-American sounding name. Even his defeated opponent, Senator John McCain, took note of the historical significance of Obamas victory as a praiseworthy thing. A majority of the electorate wanted America to do it; to overcome in this particular way all the racially-based limitations that had for centuries made the idea of a black president unthinkable. Countries across the globe, themselves not even close to doing anything like it, expressed surprise that Americans had done it, but joined the chorus of praise.

Palmer Report: Jared Kushner tried to cover up communications during the election with suspected Russian mobster

After it was revealed this week that Jared Kushner lied about knowing of Donald Trump Jr’s communications with WikiLeaks during the election, and that he’s been trying to cover up his own secret Russian dinner invite during the election, it looked like things couldn’t get any worse for Kushner. Then came the inevitable Friday evening news cycle, which revealed that yes, things could get even worse for Kushner. Much worse.It now turns out that Russian dinner invite came from a suspected Russian mobster named Aleksander Torshin, according to an NBC News report (link). Kushner did apparently end up turning down the dinner invite but he went on to fail to disclose the incident, and it’s possible he committed a crime in the process.

Remarkably, after Donald Trump took office, he was scheduled to meet with this same suspected Russian mobster, and only canceled the meeting after it became public knowledge (link). This raises the question of what other, if any, contacts and communications the Trump regime had with Torshin in between the Kushner invite and the aborted Trump meeting.

Jared Kushner is already facing potential legal trouble for having lied on his White House security clearance forms about his secret meetings with Russian government representatives during the election, and with the Russian Ambassador and the head of a Russian bank during the transition period. The form in question states that lying on it is a felony.
