Westlake Legal Group bJNJ0QaSsjmrCEfeMuxV3gntb5NnJcuz4g__zct7MlU Trump has 'meltdown' during Syria meeting and has 'no plan' to deal with Isis r/politics

Dear Lord Sauron:

Let’s work out a good deal! You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Mordorian economy—and I will. I’ve already given you a little sample with respect to the Uruk Hai.

I have worked hard to resolve some of your problems. Don’t let the world down. You can make a great deal. King Elessar is willing to negotiate with you, and he is willing to make concessions that they never would have made in the past. I am confidentially enclosing his letter to me, just received.

History will look upon you favorably if you get this the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as Morgoth if good things don’t happen. Don’t be a tough guy. Don’t be a fool!

I will hail you later.

I am Pittsburgh’s Mayor William Peduto, AMA!

Westlake Legal Group kYL6Fewoj4a2zRl3yleB0d5gzOFpS3GACRcJx8amS-g I am Pittsburgh's Mayor William Peduto, AMA! r/politics

I’m the 60th Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh, and a Democrat. I was reelected to my second term in November 2017 and plan to run again in 2021. Prior to taking this office I worked for 17 years in Pittsburgh City Council – seven years as a staffer then twelve years as an elected Council member.Cities like Pittsburgh deliver meaningful change for their residents, especially in times such as these when our federal government is gridlocked. Since taking office Pittsburgh has adopted strong environmental standards to help fight climate change, a $10 million annual fund to provide affordable housing opportunities, and approved common sense gun safety measures to make city neighborhoods safer. As my city moves from one that was managing decline to now experiencing growth, my focus everyday is on making sure that prosperity is available to all.Proof: https://i.redd.it/0rqjoreduxs31.jpg

Westlake Legal Group FT7Bgmku5KLBfVY1nDmtwIYOsG28kG9RGv2g0XlC9Uo Megathread: Fourth Defendant in Giuliani Associates' Case Arrested r/politics

David Correia, the fourth defendant in a campaign finance case involving business associates of President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani, was arrested Wednesday morning at a New York City airport, officials said.

Correia has been charged with participating in a scheme to use foreign money to build political support for a fledgling recreational marijuana business in Nevada and other states, according to an indictment unsealed last week that also charged Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman with making false statements to election regulators and conspiracy.

Dear Centrist Democrats: There Are No Moderate Republicans to Work With

Westlake Legal Group 1oTqB4-klJ-zGHKXaphV4oShpZsFNm0tYRHiYcCqVVs Dear Centrist Democrats: There Are No Moderate Republicans to Work With r/politics

I heard a debate way back when between Warren and some red-meat-republican-truck-driver candidate who kept referring to her as “Professor Warren”.

He claimed he was just showing deference to her academic title, but … nope: he’s trying to portray her as an out-of-touch academic.

I’m a professor. Nobody other than my students calls me “professor” — not my colleagues, not the other employees at my school, not research collaborators. I’m either “Firstname” (informal, which is what I want my students to use), “Mr. Lastname” (formal, but not a professional setting), or “Dr. Lastname” (formal; professional setting).

And certainly nobody calls me “Mr. Dr. Professor Lastname”, which would be the equivalent of “Senator Professor Warren” (and silly).

Never-Before-Seen Trump Tax Documents Show Major Inconsistencies | The president’s businesses made themselves appear more profitable to lenders and less profitable to tax officials. One expert calls the differing numbers “versions of fraud.”

Westlake Legal Group cxCmPa_03Lgpuq0WWKwDQ_uivAII5MogH-lP8hPaGVc Never-Before-Seen Trump Tax Documents Show Major Inconsistencies | The president’s businesses made themselves appear more profitable to lenders and less profitable to tax officials. One expert calls the differing numbers “versions of fraud.” r/politics

For instance, Trump told the lender that he took in twice as much rent from one building as he reported to tax authorities during the same year, 2017. He also gave conflicting occupancy figures for one of his signature skyscrapers, located at 40 Wall Street.

Lenders like to see a rising occupancy level as a sign of what they call “leasing momentum.” Sure enough, the company told a lender that 40 Wall Street had been 58.9% leased on Dec. 31, 2012, and then rose to 95% a few years later. The company told tax officials the building was 81% rented as of Jan. 5, 2013.

A dozen real estate professionals told ProPublica they saw no clear explanation for multiple inconsistencies in the documents. The discrepancies are “versions of fraud,” said Nancy Wallace, a professor of finance and real estate at the Haas School of Business at the University of California-Berkeley. “This kind of stuff is not OK.”

New York City’s property tax forms state that the person signing them “affirms the truth of the statements made” and that “false filings are subject to all applicable civil and criminal penalties.”

The punishments for lying to tax officials, or to lenders, can be significant, ranging from fines to criminal fraud charges. Two former Trump associates, Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort, are serving prison time for offenses that include falsifying tax and bank records, some of them related to real estate.

“Certainly, if I were sitting in a prosecutor’s office, I would want to ask a lot more questions,” said Anne Milgram, a former attorney general for New Jersey who is now a professor at New York University School of Law.

Trump has previously been accused of manipulating numbers on his tax and loan documents, including by his former lawyer, Cohen. But Trump’s business is notoriously opaque, with records rarely surfacing, and up till now there’s been little documentary evidence supporting those claims. ProPublica obtained the property tax documents using New York’s Freedom of Information Law. The documents were public because Trump appealed his property tax bill for the buildings every year for nine years in a row, the extent of the available records. We compared the tax records with loan records that became public when Trump’s lender, Ladder Capital, sold the debt on his properties as part of mortgage-backed securities.

ProPublica reviewed records for four properties: 40 Wall Street, the Trump International Hotel and Tower, 1290 Avenue of the Americas and Trump Tower. Discrepancies involving two of them — 40 Wall Street and the Trump International Hotel and Tower — stood out.

There can be legitimate reasons for numbers to diverge between tax and loan documents, the experts noted, but some of the gaps seemed to have no reasonable justification. “It really feels like there’s two sets of books — it feels like a set of books for the tax guy and a set for the lender,” said Kevin Riordan, a financing expert and real estate professor at Montclair State University who reviewed the records. “It’s hard to argue numbers. That’s black and white.”
