Democratic senators demand a full accounting of Trump's financial ties to Saudi Arabia

In a letter sent today, six Democratic senators have demanded Trump account for financial ties between the Trump Organization and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The letter notes that the Trump Organization “for decades has maintained business relationships with the government of Saudi Arabia and with members of the Saudi royal family.” The letter notes some specific incidents, such as a yacht that Donald Trump sold to a Saudi prince, an entire floor of Trump Tower leased the Saudi government, and a whopping $325 million to buy the failing Plaza Hotel.  The letter demands “all documents pertaining to investments, payments or other financial transfers from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, including members of the Saudi royal family and other Saudi nationals” to the Trump Organization over the last ten years. It also asks for information about discussions Trump may have had about investments in Saudi Arabia, potential Saudi investments in Trump properties, and any “gifts” that Trump or others in the organizations may have received from Saudi nationals. Finally, it asks that Trump suspend any business dealings with Saudi Arabia until the results of a Magnitsky Investigation invoked by a bipartisan group of senators is complete. Signers of the letter are Tom Udall, Dick Durbin, Corey Booker, Patrick Leahy, Elizabeth Warren, and Martin Heinrich. As with most such letters, Trump is likely to send it directly to the circular file. He’s still trying to pass along the myth of a giant arms deal complete with some random number of jobs rather than admit that closing his eyes to Saudi actions is all about protecting his own pocketbook. xNEW: Senators call for «full accounting of any financial ties between the Trump Organization and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia» amid fallout from Khashoggi disappearance. https://t.co/lQ6xZPbRcu pic.twitter.com/U5HvQ9C2Uk— Evan McMurry (@evanmcmurry) October 17, 2018

What Ted Cruz really thinks: It's 'reasonable' to overturn pre-existing condition protections

Among all of the lying Republican liars running for re-election on the basis of their love for the Affordable Care Act's protections, none is more humungous than Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. Here's what he said in Tuesday night's debate against his Democratic challenger, Rep. Beto O'Rourke: «We can protect pre-existing conditions, and you need to understand, everyone agrees we're going to protect pre-existing conditions.» Here's what he said back in June about his state's lawsuit challenging the Affordable Care Act, and specifically the Trump administration's decision to argue that the protections for coverage for people with pre-existing conditions is unconstitutional: «I think that is a reasonable position for the Justice Department to take.» He's arguing, against most legal experts from the right and the left who call the administration's position «absurd» and «ludicrous,» that Congress' decision to leave all parts of the ACA intact (except the individual mandate when it repealed that provision in the tax law) is meaningless. Cruz is so committed to the idea that these protections don't actually need to exist that he offered a proposal to allow insurance companies to sell policies that don't comply with the law, provided they also offer policies that do. Guess which policies the insurance companies would make affordable, and which ridiculously expensive. And here's what Cruz said when he was running for president in 2016: he was going to «repeal every word of Obamacare.» That's actually one thing Cruz said that's not a lie. That's precisely what he's wanted to do for as long as he's been in office. Remember his first big splash in the Senate, when he tried to filibuster with a reading of Green Eggs and Ham to defund Obamacare, and then conned the House maniacs into voting to shut down the government over it? Yeah, he's not lying about how much it wants to make the ACA go away. What he IS lying about is that he gives a damn about the people who will lose coverage if that happens.
