    And Manafort's daddy isn't the Vice President nor is his momma the Speaker of the House.[/QUOTE]

    No desire to discuss the first daughter and her 'perks' related to daddy's position?

    The Democrats engineered a coup in the Ukraine and now we know the reason. There is plenty of money to be grifted.

    Good enough to pay off Biden's son $50,000 a month. A lot of folks don't make that in a year.

    Yep. Engineer a coup, then show up offering to throw cash at the new government (who is full of corrupt politicians), then get your son a board position on Burisma, then go to Ukraine promoting energy independence from Russia, then when the U.S. taxpayer cash goes to Ukraine, some of it is directed back to the Bidens and whoever else in kickbacks and payoffs.

    That girl lived in poverty in Ukraine but was discovered by a modeling agent while in Moscow. She moved to France at age 16 and the rest is history. She didn't make a dime in Ukraine. Try again. She has French citizenship.

    There has been nothing illegal in anything in this thread.
    But it does seem like Rudy may be the only one under investigation. :)

    yes, so did Trump's children.... and Trump himself

    she doesn't control her adult children, nor Trump his - Trump's children work for the white house - I think they should be investigated after Trump leaves office - he would just give them a pardon if we investigate now

    But Trump does control his own actions, and he is profiting off his presidency in a big way... just look at the G7

    Trump is into nepotism with his family it seems

    nothing, adult children can profit off their parents name, the parents can not use their influence to make them that profit

    Trump supporters just can't stand that the man they supported is so corrupt, so they refuse to see it

    Trump isn't a politician but that doesn't mean he doesn't know how to buy one or two.

    Oh come on, the only thing most of these kids have to offer is their parent's influence. Sometimes it's overt and sometimes it's subtle but it's always there. Pick you out a major corporation and look at their restrictions on relationships with suppliers and contractors. They know how it works because they do it all the time with governments around the world. Ours is no different.

    don't disagree, it would be like your father being famous and you're benefiting from it without his help or knowledge

    now, Trump profiting off the tax payers or helping his children make money or making money for his own properties like with G7 are a different matter and are in fact unconstitutional

    it's like the rich parents cheating to get their children into school, that was the parents fault, had the children got in because of their status as the child of that person, then it's the schools fault, not the parents fault, as they were not involved (both are wrong though)

    so pointing to Trump actually doing wrong vs Biden's son getting a job because of his fathers status without his fathers involvement is totally different, but unfair just the same

    do you think Trump's sons would be anything without their father's status, heck Trump would be nothing without his fathers status - But Trump is now President, so profiting off his position crosses the line

    It is concerning, Trump has become almost overt with his self enrichment. I just heard he withdrew his place for the G7. Anyone else is govt that awarded themselves contracts, usually get into trouble.
