The constant attacks on John McCain are getting old. Leave it alone, Donald.
He's a coward picking on and insulting a dead American POW when he got rich daddy to buy his way out of serving. Is it a mental illness? Extreme immaturity? Or just his character of being rich and privileged degrading whoever has had the audacity to stand up to him and show him up?

Beta's hot take on the U.S. Constitution.

"“I’m hesitant to answer it because I really feel like it deserves its due, and I don’t want to give you a — actually, just selfishly, I don’t want a sound bite of it reported, but, yeah, I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work?” O’Rourke said. “Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships…and security agreements in every continent, can it still be managed by the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago?”

The US.

But that is a very good and interesting question.
I do not believe that if he lied on an application for a Loan from Deutsche Bank it would be punishable in the U.S. unless they have a branch here in the U.S. It would be easy enough to find if they did. But then you also have to look to see if he signed any documents relevant to United States laws on banking and lending. Germany is a different beast when it comes to laws and I am not smart enough to tell you what they are.

My understanding is that bank fraud committed in the US is bank fraud. It doesn’t matter if it was a German Bank or not.

Is this the article you are getting this story from?

https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/world/111419986/deutsche-bank-and-the-black-hole-of-donald-trumps-us2-billion-loans

If so they are hardly independent minded and even in the Article call Trump their president.

But it's one thing to sacrifice your integrity to stand behind the most corrupt and personally repugnant president we've ever had, and it's another to become a direct party to his misdeeds.


I do not like it when news website makes these kinds of statements. News should be impartial and if they want to report the story I have no issue, but when they impart their opinion on an article that isn't an opinion story, then I have issue with it.

The hill article works. There are several articles that discuss Cohen’s testimony.


Basically inflating your wealth to get loans is fraud.

While I do not condone this behavior. The last documented time he did this was in 2014. If they are going to prosecute they better hurry depending on when it occurred. The statute of Limitations is 5 years. All the other instances where well before that time.

I’m sure they won’t. It just shows he is a classless liar.

Curious. I do not know your position here, but do you believe Hillary and the Clintons are Classless Liars as well?
