Trump laundered money for Russian gangster for 3 decades, he's a fraud, compromised by being beholden to Russian mobster oligarchs & Putin.

Duchess Meghan also opens up in the documentary about dealing with negative press during her pregnancy:

“Thank you for asking, bc not many people have asked if I’m ok.”

Sudden prominence is a very dehumanizing experience. There’s a part of your life that you lose, & it later dawns on you that you’ll never get it back.

The people who treat you like a human make all the difference.

Since we're mother-fucking Sallie Mae today I unlocked this paid-only post from September about how they routinely steered borrowers into forbearance to maximize profits. Very cool shit!

Profanity aside, what Sallie Mae did was a profanity

One of the tricks they used to steer borrowers into forbearance was making call-center employees keep call times as short as possible to provide as little info as possible. Forbearance is quick and easy to explain and offer. Often the call center people the ones we rely on to

“Through shortcuts and deception, the company also illegally cheated many struggling borrowers out of their rights to lower repayments, which caused them to pay much more than they had to for their loans.”

Kudos to @mitchellreports for hosting local reporter @WSMV Nancy Amons to discuss her interview with Sec of State Pompeo.

Good stuff.

Well played.

Please turn on your volume and listen to the delightful voice of a child. But what you are hearing is also the voice of his father. As adults, we are mentors to the next generation. Our hope is that the voice inside "will grow up to be better".

WaPo Ed Board: "This much is now obvious: Trump conditioned US defense aid, as well as a White House visit, on the Ukrainian president’s help in providing him with political dirt.

It was a quid pro quo. It was corrupt. And his chief of staff confessed it."

Mulvaney: "Elections have consequences."
But here are consequences elections don't have:
They don't change the Constitution.
They don't change the oath of office.
They don't change, unless Congress acts, the laws of the land.
They don't change the meaning of integrity and honor
