The Criminal Enterprises of Donald J. Trump. Maybe.

President Donald Trump acknowledged in an interview with The New York Times published Wednesday that there was a certain red line he thought special counsel Robert Mueller shouldn't cross while carrying out the Russia investigation: digging into his finances.
I can't really imagine Presidents Obama, Bush 43, Bush 41, Reagan, Carter or Ford telling an investigator "you can't look at my finances."

It's be like John Wayne Gacy telling the cops "you can search my house, but stay out of the crawl space."

The sharp-eyed reader will note that I omitted President Clinton. There were three different investigations into the alleged Whitewater scandal and all they produced was a steaming and expensive heap of nothingburgers.

But Teflon Don? He doesn't want anyone, especially people with badges and subpoena powers, looking into his finances.
He and his lawyers are burning the midnight oil, trying to figure out ways to undercut the investigation.

Which, I respectfully suggest, is a strong indicator that there is something to find. Soemthing that could land a lot of people in prison, especially people with the last name of Trump. Or Kushner.

Kushner's an odd duck in this. One might rationally assume that a man who saw his father imprisoned for financial misdealings would be somewhat careful to toe the line.

Anyway, don't expect much moral courage out of the rest of the GOP. They're nothing more than spineless toadies.
