A wide variety of people have noticed, and reported on the pending FOIA case that is pending in Federal Court in Dallas.  It was the article of Dave Lieber of the Dallas Morning News that sparked interest in the national media.  Then Fox News featured a short segment to further bring this matter into focus.  Just yesterday Dave Lieber was invited to appear on the local news affiliate of NBC.

 

Today was the scheduled Court-ordered mediation.  I assumed that there was absolutely no chance the this case would be resolved after more than four years of fighting to get the documents from the USSS and the Office of Inspector General that I had requested.  I was so convinced that this matter would never be settled that I have already filed the necessary papers with the Court to begin the process of an appeal to the Fifth Circuit Court.  OIG is still a party to the suit and their attorney indicates, that contrary to a Court Order, it will take them 13 more months to produce the documents requested.  Thus the appeal would relate to the dismissal of the USSS and DHS.

To my surprise there is some chance that the case may be settled.  OIG, reportedly , is trying to locate the documents that I specified that I was most interested in.  Given the previous attempt to settle with AT Smith, I have explained that if a settlement can be achieved that I must see the documents in advance before agreeing to accept any settlement proposal.  The Judge advises me that I might have the documents as early as tomorrow, so we are waiting once again.

For a long time it has been suggested that Trump was running for President, not so he could serve the people,but so that he could increase his net worth.  Between June 16, when he announced his candidacy from the lobby of Trump Tower, through the end of 2015, the Trump campaign spent $2.2 million patronizing Trump businesses.  More recent filings reveal that Trump is already realizing greater profits as a result of the national attention associated with running for President.  His business  revenue has increased by almost­ $190­­ million, since he started the campaign, with gains coming from golf courses to branded merchandise to book royalties.”

“The flood of cash highlights one of the most unusual aspects of Trump’s candidacy — the potential that a private businessman can benefit financially from a run for the White House. And it shows how his fortunes have evolved since last year, when his controversial comments about immigration and Muslims threatened to tarnish his business brand even if they boosted his political campaign.”

Recent filings with the Federal election commission reveal that Donald Trump has directed nearly one-fifth of his campaign cash to companies that are part of his vast business empire.  According to documents submitted to the Federal Election Commission, Mr. Trump, whose campaign has just $1.3 million cash on hand, paid $1.1 million to his businesses and family members in the single month of May for expenses associated with events and travel costs. The total represents nearly a fifth of the $6 million that his campaign spent in the month.

Now it appears that as his defeat seems more likely than ever, Trump has decided to profit to an even greater extent.  TRUMP TOWER RENT WENT UP WHEN CAMPAIGN DONORS STARTED PAYING IT “After bragging for a year about how cheaply he was running his campaign, Donald Trump is spending more freely now that other people are contributing — particularly when the beneficiary is himself. Trump nearly quintupled the monthly rent his presidential campaign pays for its headquarters at Trump Tower to $169,758 in July, when he was raising funds from donors, compared with March, when he was self-funding his campaign, according to a Huffington Post review of Federal Election Commission filings.” 

It seems that Trump’s idea for making America great again is to make himself even richer than he already is.  Sarah Palin must be livid that she isn’t making some of this money.  The problem is she just lives too far away!

Dave Leiber, the reporter from the Dallas Morning News, gave an interview this morning on the channel 5 local station regarding the suit and my efforts to get reimbursed for my attorney fees.

It is astonishing that for over one year Donald Trump has been repeatedly outspoken about (1) building a wall and making the Mexican government pay for it, and (2) deporting all illegal immigrants.  Here are just a few of the opportunities Trump has had over the last year to modify that stance.  Over and over again, he defended his position:

Now that Trump has secured the GOP nomination, and we are less than 2 months away from early voting, Trump’s policy on illegal immigration is “To Be Determined.”

It’s a clear signal that Trump can’t be trusted to remain true to any platform.

First he was in favor of choice,

then he declared that he was “pro-life.”

Then he went even further and declared that a woman who has an abortion should be punished.

 

THis video that was made by a conservative group before the Republican Primary illustrates that Trump has changed his position on virtually every issue, converting himself from Democratic positions to those of Republicans.

 

 

The clear, indisputable conclusion is that whatever Trump says seems to be what he believes will garner the most votes at the time, and not what he actually believes.  Thus if Trump should ever be elected President, the only thing anyone should count on is that we won’t know what his position will be on any issue.  As his aid said, “To be Determined.”
