The address is an abandoned strip mall.

Were those donations in dollars, or rubles?

How many donors listed 1060 West Addison, Chicago IL as their "home"?

More on this subject

As the New York Times' report added, Trump's inaugural committee has not disclosed how the money was spent, how much was unspent, or where those funds may end up. The committee said yesterday it's "still identifying charities toward which it would direct leftover money."

The Washington Post's David Fahrenthold noted that the inaugural committee's members "said they'd tell us about their donations when they released fundraising numbers. They didn't."

When we talk about Team Trump's transparency troubles, the problem isn't limited to tax returns and White House visitor logs.

They also received 400k from the government of Venezuela.

I read $500K from the BBC, but that's a quibble. Also, NFL teams collectively donated $5 million. That's probably just to make sure that he never again has anything to do with professional football.

Players or organizations?  NFL orgs are overwhelmingly republican, whereas their players are much more split.

Anyone with that kind of record is going to make a mistake.  Mr. Trump is going to fark up.  And when he does, he'd better pray the police get to him before we do.

Same. None of this never ending avalanche of shiat that all seems to add up to RUSSIAN STOOGE seems to matter to anyone who can do anything about it. Congress is happy they have a rubber stamp for their repugnant agenda, his supporters are so dug in they just shrug and say "so", like all that "better dead than red" hooey from the cold war suddenly doesn't mean anything now that their "team" is "winning", DoJ isn't going to do jack shiat since they're too busy deporting families.

...just...wake me when the trials start.

while we're at it, maybe people want to look into where/why/how his 2020 campaign has already spent over 6 million dollars in Q1 of this year alone.
They are almost spending it as fast as they are getting it in

Can you do that? I didn't think you could fund raise for one campaign to pay off another.

Maybe not directly, but those weekend trips with campaign events are billable.  All those secret service at his resort, paying max price for each room, adds up quick.

He probably even charges green fees to the security

Well he has to pay for offices in Trump Tower and airfare and lodging at Mar A Lago for campaign staff who are there for meetings.

Luncheons and dinners at Trump restaurants where strategy is discussed and fund raisers held.

I'm sure that if by some miracle all 30,000 emails showed up in plain text form on WikiLeaks and were all cupcakes and where to go for dinner they would spend the next decade parsing them to find the truly evil secret message hidden inside.

The people that are supposed to be enforcing this are the FEC.  I think even the TSA is more effective at this point.

LG bought the site back in 2010 and recently broke ground on building their new headquarters.  It was nothing but dirt at the time of this donation.

I shiat you not, they spent more than $1,000,000 on "t-shirts, mugs, stickers, freight" at Ace Specialtes.

Other than that, it's mostly travel, payroll, lawyers, consultants, event facility fees and event contractors. Oh, and of course healthy amounts issued to Trump companies too. Link
