How Typical - Trump’s Nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize Was Apparently Forged. Twice.



In a phone interview on Wednesday, Mr. Njolstad of the Nobel committee, said, "We verify all nominations, at least the ones with a shadow of doubt."

Mr. Njolstad declined to provide details or copies of the forged nominations, but he said it was fair to assume that the documents purported to have been from a nominator who — when contacted — said the nominations were not valid.

USPS Board Chairman Revealed as Director of McConnell, Trump-Linked Super PACs



The United States Postal Service (USPS) Board of Governors Chairman, Robert M. Duncan, is a director of the Mitch McConnell-allied Senate Leadership Fund Super PAC, as paperwork filed Monday confirmed. The ties between Duncan and McConnell deepen concerns about the integrity of what will likely be an election largely conducted with mail-in ballots, which has also been complicated by issues with a Republican-led gutting of the USPS.

Duncan's ties to the $130 million Senate Leadership Fund is just one of the chairman's ties to prominent Republicans. Moreover, nearly all of the people on the Trump-nominated USPS board of governors have ties to the Trump administration.

This is the Trump Shell Game


Trump twice pushed back the deadline to release his 2019 financial disclosures. Then dropped them with no warning late on Friday. Then said he was banning TikTok and pulled everyone's attention away. We're still paying attention. See his finances here:

California Gov Was Reportedly Told He’d Have to Do the White House a Favor to Get Help With Testing Swabs


Sources cited by the Times say it was White House adviser Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law, who voiced the apparent quid pro quo in April. Kushner reportedly told one of Newsom's advisers that the administration could aid in getting 350,000 swabs for the state if the governor would call up Trump and personally request his assistance. "The governor of California, Gavin Newsom, had to call Donald Trump, and ask him for the swabs," Bob Kocher, an adviser to Newsom and former White House health care official under Obama, told the Times. Newsom, who was also reportedly told he would have to thank the president, held a press conference later that same day where he credited Trump with the "substantial increase in supply."
