Heard of Elliott Broidy?

Trump supporter, donor, vice chair of the Trump victory fund.... Rachel Maddow laid this out in her New Players opening segment to Friday's show [www.msnbc.com]. Paid to get the DOJ to drop the investigation into money laundering involving the Malaysian prime minister. She did not mention, yet, what other news sites were just starting to report on this guy.

Contract to lobby for Russian bank VTB (2014) [www.rawstory.com] (Ukraine again)

Broidy pitched an international Muslim army then blamed Qatar when emails leaked [www.huffingtonpost.com]

I swear the bugs are crawling out of the woodwork.

I hadn't heard of him before seeing the Malaysian prime minister story. I think that this is likely the beginning of dozens of similar stories about 45 donors and/or "friends" trying to influence things. Mueller will be busy for years to come.

President Obama, who invited Mr. Najib to a round of golf in 2014, has met with him twice more since November without commenting on the mounting scandal.

So you figure Pres. Obama was just working on his cut when they went golfing?

You still have to deal with leaders, even when they are crooks. Duh. Think leaders of our Allies, especially the other members of 5 Eyes, likes dealing with Trump? Broidy isn't the leader of a country. He's a US citizen.

Yet a fact.
