Here's All the Ridiculous Ways Trump's Inaugural Committee Spent Its Money

- $10,000 on makeup for 20 aides

"Homer, you've got it set on whore!"

- $1.5 million at Trump International Hotel in D.C.

- $30,000 in per diems to dozens of contract employees, “in addition to their fully covered hotel rooms, room service orders, plane tickets and taxi rides, including some to drop off laundry,” according to the Times

- $6.4 million in hotel room reservations for guests who ended up using other accommodations

- $2 million to Trump campaign official Brad Parscale’s firm for online advertisements

- $1.6 million in a fee to WIS Media Partners, a firm created for the inauguration and run by close friend of Donald Trump’s Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, which managed broadcast rights and worked on a documentary that never came to fruition

And on and on.

I really don't mind paying taxes, as long as the next guys pays, too. For example, my wife's niece is 35, 2 black babies, baby-daddy in and out of jail for selling drugs. She gets:
- cheap rent, I think $250 / month for a nice place
- free health care. If she needs aspirin, she goes to the ER instead of CVS, so she doesn't have to buy it.
- WIC
- not sure of the name of the program, but better financing on her brand new Honda Accord

Kids are in school, and she only works part time...under the table. When he is out, he has tons of cash for her. Tax free, of course. She can also afford 2 dogs, fake tits, kids in sports all seasons, new iPhones and iPads. New Airpods each for Christmas, etc.

She is the most entitled person I have to come in contact with on a regular basis. I have a job and pay taxes. She gets free shit, and wants more. Am I bitter? Uhm, ya. Absolute sponge on society, but is pretty and has nice tits, so she gets away with a lot.

Not sure where I was going with this... :?

We Found Major Trump Tax Inconsistencies. New York’s Mayor Wants a Criminal Investigation.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday that he had asked Manhattan’s district attorney to investigate discrepancies ProPublica and WNYC revealed last fall between what President Donald Trump’s company reported in filings to city tax officials and what it reported in loan filings. The discrepancies made his properties seem more profitable to a lender and less profitable to the city’s tax authorities.

After ProPublica published its findings, de Blasio said Friday, the city decided to examine the issues. That process resulted in one matter being turned over to the district attorney in November. De Blasio said he made the referral “because there is a possibility of a criminal act having been committed.” The referral related to Trump’s historic downtown skyscraper at 40 Wall Street, a city spokeswoman added.

De Blasio’s comments came during a conversation with WNYC reporter and “Trump, Inc.” podcast co-host Ilya Marritz on the “Ask the Mayor” segment of “The Brian Lehrer Show.” De Blasio, who ended a presidential bid in September, said Trump’s efforts to avoid taxes have gone beyond the measures taken by most wealthy Americans. He “consistently has believed he was above the law, even before he was president,” de Blasio said. “So this is a real problem, and I think there could be some real exposure here.”

SEC Charges Former State Senator Over Digital Asset ‘Scam’

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has pressed charges against a former state senator for his role in a $4.3 million token sale that promised outlandishly high returns.

The SEC confirmed Friday it had filed a complaint against David Schmidt, a former Republican state senator for Washington State, as well as two other people for their role promoting the sale of “Meta 1 Coins.”

Filed in the Western District of Texas on March 16, the complaint accuses Robert Dunlap and Nicole Bowdler, as well as Schmidt, of violating antifraud and securities regulations when promising investors returns of nearly 225,000 percent. They also claimed the coin was risk-free and would never lose value.



The SEC said defendants made “numerous false and misleading statements,” including that Meta 1 Coin was backed by an art collection valued at $1 billion, or a gold deposit valued at $2 billion, that was regularly audited by an accounting firm.

“The defendants made audacious claims about the Meta 1 Coin and would say almost anything to separate investors from their money,” said David Peavler, the SEC’s regional director at the Fort Worth Regional Office. “Investors should always look skeptically at promoters who claim that their investment cannot lose value or that investors will receive massive returns.”



In total, Meta 1 Coin raised $4.3 million from around 150 investors, some based in the U.S. The digital assets were never distributed to investors, however. Some of the proceeds were funneled to a Chicago-based fund, Pramana Capital, as well as to another individual, Peter Shamoun. The SEC claims defendants used investors’ money to fund lavish lifestyles, including the purchase of a $215,000 Ferrari.



Launched in 2018, Meta 1 Coin’s website doesn’t include a description of what the purpose of the coin is. Its Twitter page is filled with pictures and short clips of physical Meta 1 Coins, talking about the disruptive potential of blockchain technology.

Its terms of use also include some pretty weird statements, including:

“The only participants of META 1 Coin Trust and the named websites are for Live Natural Man and Women, flesh-and-blood Almighty God-created private Humans sui juris sentient being; and an Ambassador of God Almighty Domiciled in the ARIZONA Republic and on religious sojourn through the UNITED STATES.”



Schmidt, a moderate Republican, was initially elected as a representative for Washington State back in 1994. After serving four terms, he became a state senator in 2002, before losing his re-election bid in 2006. Now based in Arizona, he works as a consultant, writer and radio program host, according to his LinkedIn page.

In 2012, Washington’s electoral watchdog, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC), fined Schmidt $10,000 for improperly using more than $41,000 in donations to reimburse himself for lost wages between 2003-2006, as well as mortgage repayments and personal travel costs.

Schmidt denied misusing campaign dollars, claiming in 2011 that campaign funding rules were “very open to interpretation.”

Schmidt could not be reached for comment on the SEC complaint.



The SEC is seeking civil penalties and permanent injunctions against Schmidt and the other two defendants, as well as for investors to be refunded. The regulator also wants Pramana Capital and Shamoun to hand over any funds received from the Meta 1 Coin Trust sale.

CoinDesk reached out to both Meta 1 Coin Trust and Pramana Capital for comment, but had not received a response by press time.

Sen. Burr stepping down as intel chair amid FBI probe into stock sales

WASHINGTON (WNCN) – Sen. Richard Burr is stepping down as chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee after the FBI seized his cellphone as part of a probe into controversial stock sales at the induction of COVID-19 in the United States.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released a statement that said Burr informed him earlier Thursday about his decision to step aside as chairman.

“We agreed that this decision would be in the best interests of the committee and will be effective a the end of the day tomorrow,” McConnell said.

On Wednesday, the Republican North Carolina senator turned over his phone as federal agents served a search warrant at his Washington home.

The FBI reached out to Burr in late March to determine whether he exploited advance information when he dumped as much as $1.7 million in stocks in the days before the coronavirus wreaked havoc on the economy.

Burr’s selloff amounted to between $628,000 and $1.72 million. The stock sales were first reported by ProPublica and The Center for Responsive Politics. He was one of several senators whose financial dealings generated scrutiny in recent months.

Burr has denied wrongdoing and requested an ethics review of the stock sales.

In a statement, Alice Fisher, an attorney for Burr, said, “The law is clear that any American -– including a Senator -– may participate in the stock market based on public information, as Senator Burr did.

Burr has acknowledged selling the stocks because of the coronavirus but said he relied “solely on public news reports,” specifically CNBC’s daily health and science reporting out of Asia, to make the financial decisions.

There is no indication that Burr, whose six-year term ends in 2023 and who does not plan to run for reelection, was acting on inside information.

Good question, maybe her explanation was better than burrs

Quite possibly, Burr's knee don't bend enough for Trump.
