During a Monday appearance on NPR, Trump adviser Newt Gingrich argued that Congress should consider changing ethics laws so President-elect Donald Trump could freely mix his administration and his business interests.

From the people who called Clinton a crook and wanted to lock her up. The same people that made Carter sell his peanut farm and still did 2 investigations on him. Now they say 'fuck it....our guys in office so let's throw out the rules.' Newt should move to NC, he would fit in well there.

Ok, that's what I thought. I think your poll question is a little misleading. Gingrich' s point is that due to the vastness of Trumps holdings (700+ companies worldwide) a normal blind trust won't work and that there needs to be something else put in place as it isnt practical for him to sell off his holdings when there are family members that can take them over under the supervision of a trustee. At least that's the current thinking. Still a work in progress

Not going to click on your biased "source", as someone who has studied Fascism greatly it is very insulting to even compare the two. You remind of the people who say Obama is a Marxist.

Haha. Of course you won't. Probably for the best. The cognitive dissonance would cause you to have a stroke.

You're just making yourself seem stupid.

Like I said, you're no better than the people who claim Obama is a Communist

Says the guy who's scared to open a link that won't confirm what he wants to believe.
