Shay Assad gets forced into retirement from the Pentagon after saving taxpayers billions of dollars through shrewd negotiation. A reformer who proposed ways to catch defective pricing, and to hold defense contractors accountable for performance when issuing progress payments, Assad suddenly fell out of favor after years of award-winning performance. Donald Trump ran for office promising to drain the swamp. Why not drain THIS swamp?
The New York Times has transcripts of Donald Trump’s IRS tax returns from 1985-94. They show huge business losses of $1.17 billion in a decade, and profits from shady deals in which Trump bought stock, spread false rumors of a take-over, then sold his stock quickly at a profit. Will revelations from this “bombshell” story have any effect on Trump supporters or his reelection chances? Do Democrats now have additional reason to press for release of his last six years of tax returns?
