Trump is going to regret saying this:
“I’ve got to give [campaign contributions] to them, because when I want something, I get it,” he said in January. “When I call, they kiss my ass. It’s true. They kiss my ass. It’s true.”
Chasing all that smoke with Hillary might make some real reporters want to chase a real fire. After all, that Trump Foundation $25,000 check to Pam Bondi’s PAC has already been judged inappropriate by the IRS. Ivanka also gave her money. Then both Trump and Bondi lied about just when they met and their supposed long standing relationship. And then after she decided not to join the states investigating Trump U., he threw her a fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago.
The optics aren’t very good are they? My lord there’s a bunch of smoke there, huh?

“All we had to do is stroke a check to the committee to re-elect [the state attorney general],” the individual said. “And the problems went away.”
