1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump moves forward with his most dangerous war yet

Donald Trump is taking a dangerous step forward in his bizarre war on science. In so doing, the self-proclaimed scientist-in-chief is proving he cares as little about the planet as he does about our laws and procedures. Several recent reports, including the 2018 National Climate Assessment which involved over a dozen federal agencies and hundreds of experts, have urged bold action to fight climate change.


Donald Trump is indeed taking action, though not the type contemplated by any report. Instead, Trump is looking to piece together a team of climate change deniers and outliers to produce a new report that would contradict the findings of his own government’s scientists, as originally reported by The Washington Post. Rather than form a federal advisory panel, however, Trump wants to use taxpayer money to create a working group so that basic rules of transparency and accountability will not apply.




Trump pretends to be the world’s greatest protector of the environment. He repeatedly calls himself an environmentalist and even told Nevada business leaders in January 2017 that “I’m a very big person when it comes to the environment.” In his next breath, he proceeded to lie about having “received awards on the environment.”




Trump also pretends to be the world’s foremost expert in science. In a word salad delivered to The Associated Press in October 2018, Trump boasted that he “has a natural instinct for science.” This was right after he mentioned an uncle who was a “great professor at MIT” only to admit they never discussed the environment. Trump has not even been able to show that he excelled in science while in school. Trump often points out how smart he is, claiming he “had good marks” in a 2011 Fox News interview with Bill O’Reilly. Why, then, did Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, threaten his schools not to release any of Trump’s grades?




Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has vowed to introduce legislation to defund Donald Trump’s latest run around his own government. When Galileo tried to convince leaders that the sun was the center of the solar system some 400 years ago, he was punished for it. We all believe him now, and we would like to believe we operate a bit more responsibly in 2019.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: The real reason House Democrats chose today to go after Donald Trump’s tax returns


It’s the big moment you’ve been waiting for, or one of the big moments, at least: House Democrats just let it be known to NBC News that they’re going after Donald Trump’s tax returns. This leads to the question of why they’re choosing right now to make the move, as opposed to several weeks ago when they first took majority control, and as opposed to waiting even longer. There’s a rather straightforward answer, and an important one.




Even with subpoena power, House Democrats can’t simply wave a magic wand and have Donald Trump’s tax returns appear before them. Trump’s guy Steve Mnuchin runs the Treasury Department, and Mnuchin is corrupt enough to try to fight the subpoena. The battle will quickly end up in court, likely the Supreme Court, and there it’ll probably be decided by swing vote John Roberts. He likes to focus in on the preponderance of the evidence, which is why House Democrats have waited until right now.




We all know Donald Trump is a lifelong financial criminal, but that’s not a valid legal argument for pulling his tax returns. On the other hand, Michael Cohen just finished producing a few specific pieces of hard evidence that Donald Trump has committed financial fraud. This gives House Democrats a strong legal argument for winning the battle to get their hands on Trump’s tax returns.



What’s more, Cohen’s testimony has blown open the door such that Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, and convicted Russian mafia money launderer Felix Sater, are now set to quickly testify about Donald Trump’s financial crimes as well. Their testimony will further boost House Democrats’ legal argument for getting their hands on Trump’s tax returns, just as Trump begins trying to fight it in court. The game is afoot.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump has berserk meltdown after Michael Cohen destroys him


It’s taken him two days, but Donald Trump has finally settled on a strategy for defending himself against the scathing and largely evidenced-supported claims that Michael Cohen made about him during his public testimony. The trouble: Trump’s strategy heavily relies on citing a book that doesn’t even exist.



Here’s what Donald Trump tweeted this morning: “Congress must demand the transcript of Michael Cohen’s new book, given to publishers a short time ago. Your heads will spin when you see the lies, misrepresentations and contradictions against his Thursday testimony. Like a different person! He is totally discredited!” To the surprise of no one, it turns out Trump is lying.



For starters, it appears Trump has no idea what the word “transcript” means. You can’t have a “transcript” of a book. What Trump is actually referring to is a book pitch that Michael Cohen made more than a year ago (no one’s definition of a “short time ago”), back when Cohen was still lying for Trump, and it didn’t go anywhere.


But none of those facts stopped Donald Trump from upping the ante: “Michael Cohen’s book manuscript shows that he committed perjury on a scale not seen before. He must have forgotten about his book when he testified. What does Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, Lanny Davis, say about this one. Is he being paid by Crooked Hillary. Using her lawyer?” It looks like Trump doesn’t know what the word “perjury” means either, because Cohen’s book pitch doesn’t disprove his subsequent testimony – and it’s not “perjury” to lie in a book pitch. Trump has nothing.

“Extend and Pretend”: Are Deutsche Bank and Trump Playing Chicken Over a $340 Million Loan?

1 Share
Donald Trump may like to hire Cabinet members from Goldman Sachs, but it’s unlikely that any of them, in their right minds, would have ever conducted business with the guy. For the past two decades, Trump’s lender of choice has largely been Deutsche Bank. In 1998, when Trump was radioactive on Wall Street following a series of corporate bankruptcies, the big German bank agreed to lend the Trump Organization $125 million. According to The New York Times, Deutsche was ultimately involved in loaning Trump more than $2.5 billion. But executives reached the limits of their risk tolerance when Trump asked for another cash infusion in early 2016, in the middle of his presidential campaign. Senior officials were in a bind. They worried that if Trump won the election but defaulted on the loan, they might be forced to decide between seizing the president’s assets or refinancing—which might be seen as a bribe. They turned Trump down.
But, of course, Deutsche already had sizable Trump loans on the books—necessitating another series of awkward conversations. As Bloomberg reported earlier this week, top executives at Deutsche Bank were so concerned that Trump might default on a series of loans, totaling roughly $340 million, while he was in office that they discussed extending the repayment dates on the loans—originally due in 2023 and 2024—until after 2025, when he would have finished a hypothetical second term.
In the end, according to Bloomberg, the bank’s senior executives opted not to restructure the loans or do any new business with the sitting president. If true, this would be a major blow to the Trump Organization, which recently postponed expansion plans, and its ongoing commercial aspirations, because few other Wall Street banks have been willing to do business with Trump. Without Deutsche, it is no longer clear where the Trump Organization will get the money it wants, and needs, to continue to expand and to market the company’s real-estate products. (Eric Trump, who called the Bloomberg story “complete nonsense,” suggested that the company does not need any loans because it is comparatively under-leveraged for the real-estate industry.)
Questions about these particular loans have been circulating around Wall Street for months, but the actual facts about them are frustratingly difficult to unearth. Deutsche Bank isn’t talking, nor is Trump, despite his ongoing entreaties to journalists to call him for comment. (Yeah, right.) But, according to one ex-Deutsche Bank executive with whom I speak occasionally, the bank has been genuinely concerned about whether Trump would default on the loans, and what to do about that default.
Either possibility would be a public-relations nightmare. On the one hand, if Trump defaulted and Deutsche Bank did nothing, that might be viewed as a big gift to a sitting president of the United States. Would Deutsche Bank be seen as trying to influence Trump, or somehow be attempting to get favorable treatment from one of the long arms of the government—such as the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Justice Department, or even the Federal Reserve—with which it has regular interactions? On the other hand, if Deutsche moved to collect the loan, Trump might have various levers to exact his own retribution. My ex-Deutsche Bank source told me that this is something the bank is particularly afraid of at the moment, given how much regulatory hot water it has been in over the years for a variety of reasons.
Still, even if the bank were to extend the maturity of the loans until after 2025, as the Bloomberg article suggested was being contemplated, that would also benefit Trump. The finance principle here is known as net present value. In short, if you give a borrower a two-year extension on a loan that was due to be repaid in 2023, the new arrangement is worth less to the bank—and more to the borrower—than the original. “In the business, we say that’s ‘extend and pretend,’” my source said about extending the maturity of a loan, and hoping the added time improves the odds that the borrower pays up.
Trump, as he likes to tell us, claims to have graduated at the top of his class from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania (the less prestigious undergraduate program, not the business school). He’s “like, really smart,” he has said. One apparent hole in his intelligence, though, has to do with how loans work. Once, in the lawsuit he brought against author Tim O’Brien for claiming that Trump inflated his net worth, the future president was asked if he understood the meaning of “net present value.” The topic came up during the deposition when attorneys inquired of Trump how he valued his golf courses. After conceding that he was only “modestly” familiar with the idea of “net present value,” he said it had something to do with “the value of the land currently after debt,” which sounds more like a definition of the equity value of an asset.
But, my ex-Deutsche Bank source said, Trump would know that he was getting a benefit if Deutsche Bank were to amend or to extend the loans. “He’s not dumb,” this person said. “He knows what’s a good thing for him, and what’s not a good thing for him and his finances.”
Deutsche Bank isn’t dumb either, although sometimes it seems to do dumb things (like lend Trump money even after he sued them for $3 billion). In the end, according to the Bloomberg article, the bank’s executives decided to do nothing—to neither amend the maturity date of the loans, nor to move to foreclose on them because of a potential default. In essence, they kicked the can down the proverbial road, leaving us once again with more unanswered questions. “What actually happened?” my source wondered. “What’s the end result? Are the loans still on the books? Did the thing get written off? Is it still there?”
All good questions, and ones without answers at the moment. Perhaps Maxine Waters, the new chair of the House Financial Services Committee, will ask these questions when she holds her “many hearings” on Capitol Hill, as she once promised to do.
Correction: This article previous misstated that the arm of Deutsche Bank that issued the loan to Trump. It was not DWS, as previously stated.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Donald Trump | The Guardian: We now know the great prize of Brexit: becoming Trump’s prey | Jonathan Freedland

The US would give us a great trade deal, we were told. This week the president has shown how volatile and untrustworthy he is

Shall we take a gentle amble down memory lane, a nostalgic trip back to the heady days of the referendum campaign of 2016? So many sweet promises were murmured into our ear, it can be hard to remember them all. No talk then of shelling out £33m to settle a legal case with Eurotunnel or ferry contracts for companies with no ferries, or spending billions to prepare for the cataclysm of a no-deal departure. No, back then it was all cash bonanzas of £350m a week and assurances that Brexit would be smooth and seamless – the Europeans needed us more than we needed them, after all – so that, by the time 23 June 2016 came around, voting leave seemed like a painless, risk-free option. Not only was there nothing to lose, there was so much to gain. And top of the list was a big, shiny trade deal with the United States of America.

“Within two years,” vowed the soon-to-be Brexit secretary, David Davis, a few short weeks after the vote, “we can negotiate a free trade area massively larger than the EU.” A deal with the US, along with China, would “give us a trade area almost twice the size of the EU”, he gushed, apparently unaware that, under European law, it was illegal for a Britain that had not formally exited the EU to so much as enter talks with those nations, let alone sign an agreement with them.
