The White House asked to borrow a van Gogh. The Guggenheim offered a gold toilet instead – washingtonpost.com

What a slap in the face to the first couple. The Guggenheim refused to give them a van go for their private quarters instead they offered a golden toilet. Maybe that’s the new award they should give out to Trump every year, a golden toilet.

Perhaps the Guggenheim looked at it Trump’s past borrowing history and thought that he may never give back the Van Gogh.

The GOP is fond of saying that this dossier was commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign. What they always fail to say was that it was first commissioned by a republican running against Donald Trump.

They refuse to let the transcripts of several witness interviews be released to the public including those of Donald Trump jr. The problem is that they have no basis for not allowing this to be released. In Watergate there was a separation of the powers that made it difficult to get papers released because they were asking for documentation from the executive branch and the legislative branch does not have power to do so as easily as it does to ask for its own documents. Once again the GOP is trying to hide the truth about the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign and the cover-up and obstruction of justice.
