One of the key benefits of holding the event at a family owned property, according to Eric Trump, was that "the charity would be able to use the Trump course 'free of charge' and have the other costs donated." However, "foundation filings reviewed by Forbes show the Trump organization received more than $1.2 million from the charity for the annual one-day use of the course over the past decade. They also showed that $500,000 of the funds raised at the event over the years was re-donated to other charities, not put towards children’s cancer research." Costs for the one day event rose to as high as $322,000, all of which went to some part of the Trump Organization.  In addition, many of the other charities that received donations from the Eric Trump Foundation were connected to the Trump Organization. The Trump Foundation has also admitted to "self-dealing" (using donations for personal gain).   [post_title] => Eric Trump's Foundation Funneled Cancer Research Donations To Trump Organization, Other Trump Related Charities [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => closed [ping_status] => closed [post_password] => [post_name] => eric-trumps-foundation-funneled-cancer-research-donations-trump-organization-trump-related-charities [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2018-01-21 11:34:12 [post_modified_gmt] => 2018-01-21 11:34:12 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://factualuprising.com/?p=2488 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [5] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 2469 [post_author] => 1 [post_date] => 2018-01-13 13:23:43 [post_date_gmt] => 2018-01-13 13:23:43 [post_content] => A panel of Federal Judges ordered North Carolina to redraw Congressional district maps "after the state's Republicans conceded that they drew the maps to disenfranchise Democratic voters."

On the same day that Trump Jr. received the first message from WikiLeaks, he emailed other senior officials with the Trump campaign, including Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Brad Parscale, and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, telling them WikiLeaks had made contact. Kushner then forwarded the email to campaign communications staffer Hope Hicks. At no point during the 10-month correspondence does Trump Jr. rebuff WikiLeaks, which had published stolen documents and was already observed to be releasing information that benefited Russian interests.

Trump Jr's interactions with Wikileaks indicate violations of federal campaign finance rules, which "disallows contributions, donations, or 'anything of value' provided by a foreign national to sway an election. It also bars a campaign from offering 'substantial assistance' to a foreign national engaged in spending on American races"  (Wikileaks is a foreign based company).

  • Ending subsidies for low income individuals to cover deductibles and co-pays that cover 7 million people
  • No longer providing Health and Human Services support personnel and reducing the budget to help states with open enrollment season
  • Reducing the open enrollment advertising budget by 90%
  • Running negative ads about Affordable Care Act marketplaces
  • Seeking to expand alternatives to the Affordable Care Act
  • Reducing the open enrollment period timeframe by half, from around 90 days to around 45 days
  • Shutting down the healthcare.gov website for 12 hour periods on every Sunday during the open enrollment period (except December 10)

"Although investors and Trump’s company signed a letter of intent, they lacked the land and permits to proceed and the project was abandoned at the end of January 2016, just before the presidential primaries began, several people familiar with the proposal said."

However, "there is no evidence in the emails that Mr. Sater delivered on his promises, and one email suggests that Mr. Sater overstated his Russian ties." Sater is a Russian immigrant and "had served time in jail in the 1990s after a bar fight and pleaded guilty in 1998 to his role in Mafia-linked stock fraud. Federal officials have said he then cooperated on various national security and criminal investigations." Sater was also a former intelligence agent working for the United States:

He worked as an asset for the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency (or DIA) and tracked Osama bin Laden. Then he worked for more than a decade for the FBI, providing intel on everything from the mob to North Korea’s drive for nuclear weapons. He still operates as a source for the bureau, according to two current FBI agents.

He did some of this work to fend off prison time after he admitted guilt in a stock scam — but he had started helping the US government before then, and he continued to report back to the FBI after the agreement ended.
