There are a few sane republicans left.

Gawd, we've got the guys admitting to 'sending girls' and other bad actions. Seems to have gone well beyond the 'babble' level.
Shameless self promotion.

What say you?

I am willing to bet on it.
Some of Trump's recent strategy and some GOP House members wanting another special prosecutor to investigate Hillary's campaign makes this believable.

A summons has been issued to President Trump in a lawsuit alleging he is violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution.

The lawsuit — filed by the attorneys general in Washington, D.C., and Maryland — alleges that Trump is violating the clause, which prevents elected officials from receiving gifts or benefits from foreign governments without Congress’s approval, WAMU reported.

The lawsuit is filed against Trump in his "official capacity and in his individual capacity," according to the Washington, D.C., radio station.

The lawsuit also argues that businesses in Maryland and D.C. have been hurt because groups instead choose to stay at Trump's properties in attempts to get in his good favor.

(CNN)In this week's episode of "As the Trumpworld Turns," a porn actress, a former Playboy Playmate and a reality TV "Apprentice" walked into a bar ... and served the President of the United States a little of his own medicine.

Oh, by the way, there is a guy named "Pecker" (publisher of the National Enquirer) and a guy named "Harder" (one of Trump's attorneys) involved. I don't quite know how to weave them into this raunchy joke of a presidency, but I thought I'd mention them anyway, because it's just too hysterically crass to pass up. Do not tell me God does not have a sense of humor.

Bank statements, oh boy!



An attorney representing the former adult film star suing President Trump over a nondisclosure agreement covering their alleged affair filed requests to the Trump Organization and two banks on Thursday to preserve all records pertaining to a non-disclosure payment to the actress.

Attorney Michael Avenatti sent requests to the president's family business and two banks involved in the $130,000 payment initiated by Trump's attorney Michael Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels as part of a nondisclosure agreement, NBC News reported.

"We request that you immediately preserve all evidence, documents, tangible things and electronically stored information ("ESI") potentially relevant to the claim," Avenatti said in the statement to the three entities, according to the report.

The requests are the first step to subpoenaing the records for the ongoing legal case, Avenatti indicated.

Though Cohen has claimed he paid Daniels out of his own pocket and was not reimbursed by the Trump Organization, Avenatti cited "unmistakable links" between the company and the payment, including Cohen's use of his Trump Organization email in dealings with the bank that facilitated the wire transfer.

Avenatti requested that First National Bank and City National Bank, the banks that sent and received the payment from Cohen, preserve all records and documents related to the payment.

"Failure to do so may subject you to liability," Avenatti warned City National Bank in the letter.

The attorney also demanded that the Trump Organization preserve all internal communications and financial records pertaining to the matter, and indicated interest in communication from February "whereby Mr. Cohen attempted to interfere with Ms. Clifford/Daniels' ability to hire new counsel (i.e. Michael Avenatti)."

Cohen, whom the White House has suggested made the payment without Trump's knowledge, also claims that the payment made just one month before the election in 2016 had nothing to do with the president's campaign.
