That's an opinion.

If Dems THINK there are bribes, then that's all they need to bash Trump.

Salty is typical in that she believes every theory espoused by CNN, and other 24/7 hate Trump medias as tried and true.

I would say renting one of those expensive rooms from Donald instead of someone else's expensive room would constitute as a bribe if you are a foreign dignitary wishing for favoritism. Yes.

Do they even need to think that?

All the left wants is Trump bad talking points. I doubt they believe half what they post.

That's an obvious problem, especially since the "the family" is also walking the halls of the White House and they are even the face of some foreign policy activity.
And Look, if you're the father of the family don't you want your children to succeed? So how is that "divestiture" close to "good enough" for anyone but the most trusting souls?
I' mean c'mon, even if you're not running the day to day? I'm not sure how "the family" being the beneficiaries is putting the shadow of financial influences much further away at all.
If a child calls daddy and says
"hey my good friends Mr. Tung and Ms. Safazi have bought out the penthouse. And in passing just mention to me that ..... Do you know if anything is being done about that?"
With things like that, How would ANYONE KNOW if Trump's actions were influenced? Without access to all conversations and contacts with "the family".

Sure Trump's has been accused of many things that a pure BS.
but this like walking around with a brown stain at that crack of his pants and saying no one should accuse him of crapping his pants.
at least Not until crap falls from the pants leg. THEN give me a call and I'll decide whether is really crap or just an old chocolate bar.

the thing is If he'd really changed his pants at the beginning then the problem would never have been a questionable one.

Both would have put any credible accusations aside in a realistic way. Some would still accuse him anyway but it'd be a much farther and far more unrealistic stretch.

The way it is now, He's fair game.

Is there any evidence the family has done that?
