    The elephant in the room is that he flew aid to these people BEFORE he was considered for the post...Tell me what others did that matches that as an act of generosity?
    The GOP matter is nothing to do with Trump... They are a law unto themsleves...

    In 2013, Pasternak hosted a fundraiser in Washington for Schiff, who later came to embrace a strong stance in support of the United States sending military aid to Ukraine during its conflict with Russia.

    Everything it is all about the money of fundraising that are for all of you that you need to know that something that this is some a suspicious about it that where is the connections and where is the money it is actually coming from those people that how you say fundraising to get the money and sometimes I know that where the money is coming from it could be some it dangerous ever but however if they're not even tell me the truth that I'm on my way. My ETA is actually coming from fournette fondant it could be so much trouble on whoever they are for those people that already spoke with that for men and women that this is going to be like keep it into the dark and not into the light of a telling the truth the because if someone said about making excuses of a policy of their words it's not telling the truth this is a make sure that everyone need to do the right way it is like how to say oh yeah you sweated me swear that tell the whole truth by the truth and the whole truth so help me God they need to tell the truth the right way those people that don't be talkin about it it's always about the money I mean sometimes I know you believed in sometime that you don't believe them and sometimes that where the money actually coming from some of you that you do know some of you you don't know or you just that how to say how to get offended that I raised the money and actually where is coming from

    Trump has flagrantly flouted his oath of office and the normal rules of democracy. His infectious behavior corroding all of the weak willed soulless republicans who pledge him their allegiance. The politicians who are constantly in the lineup at bat for Trump will eventually hit a brick wall on their chosen path of self-destruction.

    LOL, you do recognize that CBS news is trying to make a case for something that both the Republicans and the Democrats do and have done in the past for a longgggggg time. The same happened with Clinton when Obama beat her. She was placed in the position of Sec of State. When that happened all you have to do is look at the Clinton Foundation's increase in contributions, as well as watching Clinton Cash. Did you see any laws broken? Man if this is "pay-to-play, it should be added to the list of pay-to-play schemes in our Government.
