You’re probably already aware that “Trump University” was a scam designed to fleece wannabe real estate developers. It turns out that when the Florida Attorney General was investigating whether to prosecute Trump for fraud in the matter, Trump picked that moment to give a $25,000 contribution to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R). Bondi instantly dropped the fraud investigation. We are supposed to believe that these two things are not connected.
Turns out that wasn’t the only Trump gift to Bondi. He gave her bargain rental rates at his Mar-a-Lago resort, $5,000 for the same facility that charged his own campaign $140,000. In other words, he made a $135,000 in-kind contribution to Bondi.
Trump isn’t shy about expecting favors in return for campaign contributions.
“I’ve given to everybody,” he boasted earlier this year. “When I want something I get it. When I call, they kiss my ass. “It’s true. They kiss my ass.”
This is the Republican leader. It’s corrupt all the way down.
