    It's a common military tactic. Try to trick your opposition into disarming themselves by saying they're not a threat, so you can catch them with their pants down.
    Also how you calm a madman who has taken hostages -- the more apt comparison.

    The DOJ IG has turned over his McCabe findings ("lacked candor" == lied) to the DC US Attorney's Office.

    Sick, the article I linked also went into the more than one time Trump used his charity to pay his personal legal settlements.

    On the not a "target" of Mueller's investigation, that has a very specific meaning. Pretty sure that was like a week or so ago it came out, and it was said Trump is not a target but is a subject. Subjects can become targets, targets are just closer to jail time.

    In the right state, in Alaska newer public school teachers get little retirement benefits and no Social Security.

    Same Wiki link (yes, 'gravitas' ... )

    Trump may have used foundation money to settle his personal or business legal disputes on at least two occasions.

    Trump's foundation paid $158,000 to the Martin B. Greenberg Foundation as a settlement of a lawsuit brought by Greenberg against the Trump National Golf Club Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, New York. Greenberg alleged that he had rightfully won a $1 million prize for scoring a hole-in-one in a 2010 charity golf tournament at the club.
    OK, I'm cherry-picking things, but I do believe they are key. This Greenberg circumstance. It was a charity golf tourney. Which charity? If it was for Trump's foundation, shouldn't that pick up the bill in that dispute? I'm asking. Details are lacking.

    This flagpole thing.

    Settlement documents show that Trump, in return for discharging the club's obligations to Palm Beach, had agreed to personally donate $100,000 to Fischer House, a charity benefitting veterans and military families. However, Trump then made the grant using foundation money, not his own.
    What'd the agreement actually (verbatim) say? Trump personally, or that Trump would "oversee" a donation would be made. I hate weasel-wording like that, but lawyers were involved so I would not be surprised.

    All that said, this is out there in the public square, in the sunshine. Why weren't criminal charge drawn up and pressed?

    I suspect it's something like "Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes ..., our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent. Responsible decisions also consider the context of a person’s actions, and how similar situations have been handled in the past."

    No SoSec? Dare I say 'impossible'. It's Federal employment law.

    The teacher must be paying 100% of SoSec, where normally it's half you, half employer. Ultimately it's accounting ledger moves as all the money comes from the school board: it's who actually turns it over.


    In ND a few years back they upped the "Rule of*" number for full pension benefits to 90 (from 85?) to keep their retirement fund solvent.

    State Government pension employees are exempt.

    People who participate in a state government pension that provide benefits in replacement of Social Security. For instance, in Massachusetts, State and local employees participate in the State pension plan. They contribute to the pension through payroll withholding instead of contributing in the same manner to Social Security.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Of course it’s that kind of ignorance of things that Republicans thrive to gut things like Public Schools...

    My wife doesn’t pay SS. She’s going to get 80% pay when she’s in her late 50’s and we’ll both get healthcare for life. They are some of the best jobs around right now in my opinion.

    So pretty much like was said umpteen posts ago, you'll bend yourself into pretzels to defend Trump, yet you're sure Hillary belongs in jail. Thanks for confirming.

    No, they both look like there's enough there* to the casual observer, but neither seems to have to face the law even after everything is in the sunshine. Must be nice to have tacit immunity. You and I surely don't.

    So, is that more stupidity from the Democrats or is that able to be proven now in Court and is Mueller's investigation close to closing that? If it ends up being more stupidity from the Democrats I will be severely disappointed.
