Fraud in the U.S., or crimes against cash, is a huge deal. This cannot be waved away with a whisp and an airy "yebbut".

2014 - 2018. My former CEO, for inflating the client list and marking in predicted revenues as actual, just landed a twelve year stretch in Northern Virginia. The $80k he owes me is still on the books but I am not getting my hopes up.

More genius from Team Trump. Pompeo has been talked about as a possible successor to Trump should November go badly. This is lthe Ambassador in In The Loop stuff. With added George Costanza, trying to pretend he didn't resign.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/ ... -sanctions
The US secretary of state went to the UN on Thursday to set in motion the diplomatic gambit, claiming the US is still a participant in the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran – from which Donald Trump explicitly withdrew two years ago – and therefore retains the right under the rules of the deal to trigger a “snapback” or resumption of full UN sanctions.

Very few other UN member states think the US has the authority to do this. Even before he made a scheduled announcement at the UN headquarters in New York, the UK, France and Germany, issued a statement saying the the US was not a participant and they would not support it.

In response, Pompeo denounced the Europeans as having chose to “side with the Ayatollahs”

“Their actions endanger the people of Iraq of Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, and indeed their own citizens as well,” he told reporters. “America won’t join in this failure of leadership. America will not appease. America will lead.”

As I understand it the publication of a candidate's (or President's) tax returns are a matter of convention, not a legal requirement. I don't know the reasons for them being disclosed to the New York court - some suspicion of skullduggery?
