Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Today Buzzfeed’s Anthony Cormier and Jason Leopold reported that federal prosecutors are examining two bursts of suspicious financial transactions, one right after the infamous Trump Tower meeting and another following the presidential election, involving a Putin-connected Russian oligarch, his family, and people who attended the Trump Tower meeting including God-King associate Rob Goldstone. Also, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) revealed that the God-King’s administration diverted almost $10 million from the FEMA budget to ICE, even as Puerto Ricans continue to suffer the after-effects of Hurricane Maria a year later and Hurricane Florence threatens to devastate the mid-Atlantic states. Will such money trails help to expose the GOP’s culture of corruption?
