I have no idea whether there will be a ‘smoking gun’ connecting Il Trumpe to Russian hacking. Besides, he openly asked Russia to meddle in the campaign. The real ‘secret’ is that Trump has a lot of really shady business associates–and that’s putting it gently.
An aside: in light of his sleazy partners, his casino going under looks like a class bust-out. The only question is was he in on it, or was he the schnook? But I digress.
One thing I hope U.S.-ians take away from Il Trumpe’s administration, both the president and many of his cabinet officials, is that many rich people made their money in really sleazy, shitty ways (e.g., Mnuchin). I don’t mean the occasional underhanded deal, or questioning what overall societal good they provide (e.g., the Kardashians), I mean that their entire modus operandi is usually pretty foul.
We usually assume ‘sucessful businessmen’ are reasonably honest. That’s probably correct for many gentry class and wealthy people. But unless they inherited their immense wealth, the rich are different than you and me: there’s usually a shit ton of sleaze under all that lucre.
Hopefully, we’ll learn this from Trump.
