That’s not a fair comparison. Capone wasn’t stupid enough to self incriminate himself on tax evasion on national television by calling himself smart for getting away with it (at 1:08)
Actually, the investigation into illegal activities by the Trump campaign has been extraordinarily punctilious and judicious.
Drumpf’s chief strategy seems to be brazen braggadocio about his and his co-conspirators’ crimes.
It only worked for 72 years
Since we’re kinda talking about Al Capone at the moment in this thread…
45 wasn’t operating on a global stage under a gigantic microscope, either.
That’s been one of of the most disquieting consequences of his disastrous presidency; how much everyday white collar corruption has been exposed because of it.
Had it not been for the orange buffoon, many crimes and unethical practices would have never come to light.
Here we go. Distraction time.
We never did get his tax returns, did we?
Sooooo… when do we get to find out the name of the administration official who just copped to intentionally planning and executing Latinx genocide?
From the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide:
In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
( c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.
The following acts shall be punishable:
(b) Conspiracy to commit genocide;
( c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide;
(d) Attempt to commit genocide;
(e) Complicity in genocide.
Finally, the tally is complete in Ohio.
At 104,328 to 102,648 votes, after outspending the Democratic Party 4 to 1, and Trump helicopter-stumping for Troy Balderson, I think that he’d better enjoy his next 76 days while he can.
To the surprise of no one, some proof of Donald having a secret love child had been released after that contract with the National Enquirer was dissolved
This is one that might hurt him if it shakes loose:
I wonder if this bunny knew Trump…
“Christina Carlin-Kraft: Former Playboy model found dead in Pennsylvania home”
Alex I’ll take “What’s in the safe?” for 500.
I fucking hope that’s the case, because I think that might actually have an impact with his evangelical base. Or not, because he’s giving them conservative judges who will likely oppose women’s rights.
I don’t expect it to move the needle. The forced-birth movement isn’t about protecting children, it’s about controlling women.
Take a wild guess where the illegal immigrant who allegedly killed that woman Fox News couldn’t stop blathering on about the past week was living?
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A top Republican fundraiser whose firm works for several prominent immigration hardliners is the partial owner of the land where the Mexican man accused of killing Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts lived rent-free, a farm spokeswoman said Friday.
Nicole Schlinger has long been a key fundraiser and campaign contractor for GOP politicians in Iowa and beyond, including this cycle for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Virginia Senate candidate Corey Stewart.
Schlinger is the president of Campaign Headquarters, a call center that makes fundraising calls, identifies supporters and helps turn out voters for conservative candidates and groups. Her business is one of the largest in Brooklyn, the central Iowa town where Tibbetts disappeared while out for a run on July 18.
