Ivanka busted for amending financial disclosure forms six times in one month: report

Published

on

An ethics watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics obtained Jared Kushner’s and Ivanka Trump’s financial disclosures that revealed the couple has a “pattern of trouble with their filings.”

The group received the certified disclosures from Office of Government Ethics. The forms show that they made multiple adjustments to their documents.

“The public financial disclosure reports for 2018 showed that Kushner amended his financial disclosure five times, including four times in the last month, and that Ivanka Trump amended her financial disclosure eight times, including six times in the past month” a report from Newsweek explained.

CREW spokesman Jordan Libowitz told Newsweek, “When taken together with their previous number of revisions on previous filings, it does show that they do have a pattern of trouble with their filings.”

“The Office of Government Ethics was not willing to certify their reports for so long, which possibly has to do with why it was revised [so many] times,” Libowitz said. “So the question is, Why? We don’t want to say what the reason is without knowing, but it’s troubling.”

Libowitz added, “This isn’t the first time they’ve had problems with having revised forms over and over again, both financial disclosure and security clearance forms. So there certainly are questions about this pattern with them, and would this be acceptable behavior from people who are not related to the president?”

President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.

Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.

Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates

Published

on

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.

On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.

Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-IL).

Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”

This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying

Published

on

President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.

The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.

"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
