  • Nailing down the number of legal battles involving Donald Trump and his businesses is a moving target, and the USA TODAY Network's ongoing review of his empire's litigation continues surfacing new cases.

    In early June, the analysis had found at least 3,500 cases — a figure that has now surpassed 4,000 — and today we're releasing a new interactive tool that lets you explore more than three decades of court actions by and against Trump and his companies.

    Trump uses the lawsuits to negotiate throughout his business relationships. He turns to litigation to distance himself from failing projects that relied on the Trump brand. And he uses the legal system to haggle over his property bills and contracts with vendors.

    Trump’s businesses have been involved in at least 100 lawsuits and other disputes related to unpaid taxes or how much tax his businesses owe, in addition to dozens of other court fights with government agencies. Trump’s companies have been engaged in battles over taxes almost every year from the late 1980s and into this year. In addition, at least five Trump companies were issued warrants totaling more than $13,000 for late or unpaid taxes in New York state just since Trump declared his candidacy in June 2015, according to state records.

    Journalists continue to track new legal battles, since at least 70 new cases have been filed since Trump announced his candidacy a year ago — adding to ongoing prominent disputes like the class action suits over Trump University.

  • During a congressional hearing Thursday, Florida Rep. John Mica (R) started off his questioning by asking Comey whether he had seen “Hamilton.” Mica informed Comey that the musical won a Tony award for choreography, then used that to segue into insinuations that the FBI had coordinated events leading up to the announcement that Clinton would not be prosecuted.

    Mica framed his questioning in terms of having to report back to constituents in cafes and other public settings.

    Comey did not appreciate the suggestion that he and the bureau he directs did anything corrupt.

    “I hope what you’ll tell the folks in the cafes is, look me in the eye, and listen to what I’m about to say,” Comey said. “I did not coordinate that with anyone. The White House, the Department of Justice, nobody outside the FBI family had any idea what I was about to say. I say that under oath, I stand by that.”

    LOL, Trump doesn't know that there isn't an Article XII in the constitution. But he can channel Saddam Hussein, so he figures he's ready to be president.

  • The Republican presumptive nominee’s Senate meeting was stormy, as Republicans present at the meeting told the Washington Post:

    Trump’s most tense exchange was with Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who has been vocal in his concerns about the business mogul’s candidacy, especially his rhetoric and policies on immigration that the senator argues alienate many Latino voters and others in Arizona.

    When Flake stood up and introduced himself, Trump told him, “You’ve been very critical of me.”

    “Yes, I’m the other senator from Arizona—the one who didn’t get captured—and I want to talk to you about statements like that,” Flake responded, according to two Republican officials.

    “There was a lack of enthusiasm, you could feel it,” Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Illinois, remarked to Politico.

    And even in front of an audience that applauded his entrance, Trump raised a few eyebrows by making basic errors about the Constitution he (probably) intends to defend. Rep. Mark Sanford, R–South Carolina, told reporters afterward that, when asked how he would defend Article I of the Constitution, Trump replied that he wants “ ‘to protect Article I, Article II, Article XII,’ going down the list.”

    “There is no Article XII,” Sanford added.

    Spent his entire life working up to retirement so he could reach his dream job: Internet Stalker.

    He is now so depressed that the only thing he can imagine to do is to drag others down in a feeble and failed attempt to raise himself up. So, he struggles out of bed and to the computer where he vomits up another day of bile, venom, hatred and self-loathing. And he stalks the one he holds responsible for ruining his life.

    He no longer even gets a laugh out of taking liberals to dinner and watching them order lobster and sticking him with the bill.

    This is what happens when a deadbeat retires and becomes a drag on the economy and everyone around him.

    He does however support migrant workers by sucking on lemons all day long.

    "If you had the least bit of common sense, 'yu' would realize the USA has been on a very serious downward trajectory with regards to all of the above. And sadly it's been going on for a very long time."

    [Sadly the US had been on a decline - primarily due to extreme hard right conservatives who deny science, disregard education, soak the middle class and in general fail to support the activities that would make the country better in order to get more tax cuts for the rich. ]

    Too far, too fast.

  • Don't waste time with Nvidia. Micron has much better prospects over the next 2-3 years.

  • And why are you still here. The war's over. You lost. Go home.

  • Donald Trump started Wednesday with just a handful of VP options and ended the day with a Trump-handful of options. Sen. Bob Corker, a relative moderate, withdrew his name from consideration just a day after joining Trump at a campaign rally in North Carolina. Corker's appearance at the Tuesday rally was widely believed to be a showcasing of a potential running mate, but Corker told The Tennessean's Washington Bureau he was tapping out. So what changed for Corker? Was Trump's qualified praise for Saddam Hussein at the rally too much for Corker, the foreign policy wonk? Or did he get too close of a look at Trump's slim campaign operations? When asked if he'd consider a role in a Trump administration, Corker veered off on a tangent: "It's a really lean campaign -- I mean, very lean -- so (the VP slot is) their focus right now."

    Sen. Joni Ernst of Iowa wasn't quite as explicit as Corker yesterday, but also seems to be out of the running. “I made that very clear to (Trump) that I’m focused on Iowa," Ernst told Politico. I feel that I have a lot more to do in the United States Senate. And Iowa is where my heart is.” Ernst did snag a prime time, televised speaking slot during the GOP convention (and right now, even attendance at the convention is a tough sell for Republicans). Still on Trump's short list: House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Sweet, looks like Christie might parlay that McDonald's run into an expanded role within the Trump administration.

  • If these numbers had come from one of the “Dump Trump” people, I’d laugh them off as hype for a movement that’s going nowhere. According to the Journal, though, they come from Randy Evans, an RNC member who’s been whipping votes for Trump. This is Team Trump’s own rosiest spin on how many delegates on the floor are personally loyal to him — fewer than 900, well short of the 1,237 he needs for the nomination. None of that matters if the rules about pledged delegates remain in effect, as more than 1,500 are bound to him due to the results of the primaries. But if the “Dump Trump” contingent on the Rules Committee can muster the votes needed to issue a “minority report” on a rule to unbind the delegates, then the full contingent of 2,400+ delegates would vote on that rule. If there are 1,237 willing to replace Trump, then that rule will pass. And suddenly all hell will break loose.

    Are there 1,237 willing to drop the bomb? This is the first news item I’ve seen since Cruz left the race suggesting … yeah, maybe.
