I bet this dude has a file somewhere.  And if he is a stooge, the Chinese are probably laughing their ass off at the stupidity of our current administration.

He is related by marriage to Emperor Xi?

If I remember correctly, he's trying like Hells to avoid being returned back to China. He's supporting the GOP to avoid extradition. Then again, using the folks who took him in to avoid a Chinese prison to get charges dropped at home might be a fair play as well.

Donnie hasn't met someone who has a rap sheet somewhere that he doesn't love though.

He has that kind of money and he's hiding from the Chinese in this country?

Either he's spying to get back in the Chinese good graces (not likely, they hold grudges), he's a moron (he's buddies with Bannon, so maybe), or no other country would give him residency even with Fark You money. If the latter, he's going to be looking for someplace new to relocate to if Trump looses.

He joined Mar-A-Lago so Trump denied the extradition request. This would be a good joke if it wasn't true.

Is he a real billionaire or a billionaire like President Useless Asshole?

He's also got a media company spreading conspiracy theories about COVID-19 being manufactured in Wuhan, a rumor that Trump apparently still believes and repeats.

Probably deeper than that.  Mar a Lago is probably just the central location for all these international criminals Trump surrounds himself with.  It's likely the "exposure" of Chinese corruption was a front to gain the trust of dumbass conservative dupes.  From there he enriches himself and others while actually spying for China.

And just like the Russian infiltration of the NRA, these farking hicks are too stupid to turn down obvious Trojan horses full of dirty foreign money.

I think I've seen this episode of 24. Isn't this the part where this Chinese billionaire goes "missing" suddenly only to appear in a freight ship 48 hours later in the South China Sea where a PMC arranges a prison exchange with pirates financed by China for a captured American spy?

I'm assuming Trump is trying to push this non-profit that everyone he knows is probably skimming from, but he's been so stupid, he keeps tweeting out "Law and Order!"

Also, if you're not familiar with Rat Boat or the "Rat" in general, you should be. While I don't always agree with Claude Taylor's politics (he's a centrist Dem who worked for Bill Clinton), he's still hilarious and has good causes worthy of donation.

And half of the funding of this wall scam was done by a contractor who then awarded $1.7 billion in government contracts to build the wall after his bid was already rejected by the Army Corps of Engineers.

We should send him to China if he gets to end his life in a chinese concentration camp. Farking bannon and the whole GOP gang deserves that. If they get to prison in the US, they'll go to the VIP prison BS.

Better yet, send them to a prison in Mexico full of gang members in general pop or in Venezuela. They'll suck dicks to survive for the last miserable months of their treasonous lives... which is what they deserve.

My bet is that he is a real billionaire, but whether or not those billions happened because of some help from the Central Committee is another story...

He was probably happily losing money to Trump playing golf, so - a great guy, you know? Fantastic guy, can't extradite someone like that to this bad, bad China...

and this person actually clawed his way up body heaps to get his wealth. Trust me he is the sort of person that sees trump as a nice lunch and a useful post meal stepping stone. So whatever his intentions it is to wring the hell out of everyone he can, and trump is the doorway to all he is trying to get done.

It is still amazing to me that our current president has so many "friends" from countries that are, at least nominally, our enemies, and yet that's no concern at all, apparently, to Republicans.

If Hillary Clinton had any of these "friends," she'd be sitting in a Congressional hearing about it right now.

So, from now on, when I think someone has a punchable face, I may say:

"This looks like a job for French Wallop."

Bannon, Guo, Gaffney, Wallop-a lovely bunch of folks. Guo Media has this item (by "anonymous") which has choice words about French Wallop here:

FTFA:
As the Wall Street Journal reported in October 2017, Guo was nearly sent back to China that year after Macao casino mogul Steve Wynn hand-delivered a letter from Beijing to Trump, demanding Guo's deportation.

Trump reportedly declined the request after learning that Guo was a member of Mar-a-Lago.


There's so much ratfarkery to unpack from so few words right there.

And yet, self-proclaimed Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui has inserted himself into GOP politics, reportedly dodging a Chinese extradition request thanks to a Mar-a-Lago membership.

Well that is an unusual legal route, for sure.

Another impeachable offense.  Another day that ends in "y"!

Thanks for that link. She's been quite scummy for a long time.

"Wallop and Waller have neither the experience nor the connections they claimed. After they received $1 million to research corrupt CCP officials, Wallop and Waller produced Wikipedia and Facebook printouts for the supposed individuals they were conducting "high level" research on. In fact, Wallop admitted at her deposition that all Strategic Vision does to perform this so-called "high level" research is looking individuals up on Facebook:

Attorney: I want to know how Strategic Vision performs investigations.
Wallop: We look everybody up on Facebook.
Attorney: That's it?
Wallop: Sure."
