Trump donor intervened to keep Ivanka and Don Jr from being indicted on felony fraud

Ivanka Trump and Jared nearly indicted

According to a new ProPublica report, Trump attorney Marc Kasowitz managed to make the case against Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump disappear. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office was building a criminal case for misleading possible buyers of Trump’s SoHo hotel and condo that wouldn’t sell. The evidence was based on emails that the two sent acknowledging that they used inflated numbers claiming the condos were selling well, hoping buyers would be eager to invest.

Four people have seen the emails where the Trumps discussed how to be on message about the fake information for possible buyers. They also feared a reporter might know about the fraudulent numbers. In another email, Donald Trump Jr. reassured a broker who was worried about the false numbers, promising that no one would ever find out about it. He explained that only those in the email chain in the Trump Organization knew of the false numbers.

There's a conspiracy that Puerto Rican truck drivers are striking and delaying the delivery of crucial supplies — and Donald Trump may have bought into it.

Congress Votes On Abortion Ban After Letting Children’s Health Program Expire

Bob Goodlatte (R-W VA) authored anti abortion bill in HouseHouse Republicans are expected to pass a bill on Tuesday that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy ― a move the Trump administration said will “help to facilitate a culture of life.” The move comes three days after Congress allowed a federal children’s health program to expire, potentially leaving millions of poor children without insurance coverage.

The abortion bill, which the House has passed before, would shorten the time period in which a woman can legally seek an abortion, based on the medically unsupported claim that fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks. Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, authored an op-ed on the anti-abortion website on Monday touting the legislation.
