‘Nearly every organization’ Trump ran in the past decade is under investigation: Washington Post

Published

on

An analysis of Donald Trump’s ever-mounting legal trouble revealed a shocking number of entities he’s associated with being under investigation.

The Washington Post reported that in the two years since his surprising victory in the 2016 presidential election, “nearly every organization” Trump led in the last decade is under investigation.

The Trump Organization, the Post reported, is battling civil lawsuits probing its relationship with foreign government bodies as well as “looming state inquiries into its tax practices.”

The president’s charity is also involved in a protracted legal fight with New York state, which accused the Trump Foundation of “persistently illegal conduct,” the report noted.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, the Post‘s reporters added, is investigating both the Trump presidential campaign and his inaugural committee.

The campaign’s alleged ties to Russia have infamously been the subject of Mueller’s investigation for a majority of Trump’s presidency — and new reports from this past week revealed that the special counsel is also investigating whether illegal donations were funneled through the inaugural committee as well.

Democrats who will soon be in the majority on the House Intelligence Committee once Congress reconvenes in January 2019 are also planning to take up the Trump inaugural committee probe as well.

Trump questions US military over reports of UFOs and doubts existence of extraterrestrial life in ABC interview

Published

on

In the most recent excerpt from his interview with ABC host George Stephanopoulos, President Donald Trump expressed skepticism at the existence of UFOs despite recent revelations from the Pentagon of sightings.

Asked about alien visitations, Trump was curt and dismissive.

"I think it’s probably -- I want them to think whatever they think. They do say, and I've seen, and I’ve read, and I’ve heard. And I did have one very brief meeting on it. But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particular," Trump explained.
