    SHOULD TRUMP BE INVESTIGATED? Hell yes.

    MONIKA BAUERLEIN AND CLARA JEFFERY

    We really should have seen this coming. On Monday, amid a whirlwind of shocking news about Russian interference with America's election, Donald Trump had some news of his own—or rather, non-news. He canceled a press conference at which he was supposed to explain how he would disentangle the conflicts of interest posed by his far-flung business interests.

    It wasn't the first time Trump had bailed on answering questions: From the time he declared that "we're working on" releasing his tax returns, to when he vowed to produce evidence that he hadn't groped a woman on a plane, to the promised press conference to clear up his wife's immigration history, this is a pattern we're sure to see again.

    But why is it only now, well past the election, that Trump is being pushed to address how he would deal with banks to which he is in debt, or foreign leaders who have a say over his company's projects? Those questions were there for anyone to see, and investigate, the minute he announced he was running. And yet, they weren't a focus for media, with a few notable exceptions, until far too late in the game.

    Why? Simply put: Math.

    Making money with his companies before he is President? Yes he should be investigated for legally running his business before he takes office! He doesn't have to hold a press conference to turn his businesses over. He doesn't have to turn the businesses over until the day before inauguration, or for that matter in the hour or minutes before the inauguration.
    More whining by the losers.

    Obama made over 300 grand on his investments while he was president.

    Where were the liberals calling for an investigation into that?

    $300,000 over 8 years - a drop in the bucket compared to $12.5 MILLION the trump campaign paid to trump businesses.

    Trump paid $12.5 million to his own businesses during race - Dec. 16, 2016

    More unhinged Prog BS. The financial conflict of interest statute expressly does not cover POTUS.

    Six weeks, and counting, of lunacy from the Progs. Progs who threatened, spammed, and attempted to intimidate electors.

    Why does the number matter?

    So let me ask you what the cutoff number of making a profit from being president is acceptable to you?

    Tell @Spookycolt, he's concerned about Obama earning $300,000 (37,500 a year average) over 8 years.

    Please show that Obama's earning on investments have anything to do with him as president.

    Here's a place to begin your investigations

    For Obama, lack of huge stock portfolio helps avoid need for blind trust

    So you want to silence people who have legitimate questions? Why? Is there an element of fear involved? If he is above board, then him, or his supporters should have nothing to fear. This isn't a game with winners or losers. This is about the person elected to run the country. And yes, his past business dealings could have an impact on his presidency. I know you are bright enough to see that. That his supporters choose to ignore this is pretty telling. You, and Trump, and all of his supporters should be demanding investigations. Then you could tel the dems they were full of it, and actually have some credibility in doing so.
