They weren’t aware that the report had been previously uploaded to some obscure non-profit website. Other than that the story is totally legit. The WP is taking the opportunity to ding their competitor. August 10, 2017 8:07 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse John Bolton, a former undersecretary of state and U.N. ambassador for a year under President George W. Bush, about a week ago urged in a WSJ column that the US attack North Korea. (Paywall: https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-military-options-for-north-korea-1501718189) That reminds me, since Trump’s inability to focus caused nuclear launch codes to be scrapped when he became President, was John Kelly able to swap out Trump’s nuclear button for a tiny, hand-held (for tiny hands, natch) remote garage door opener? . Power-addled but rational Kim vs delusional unstable Trump. Maybe there’s common ground in narcissism. August 10, 2017 9:36 AM Log in to Reply Dave Bearse Don’t forgot the other Trump investigation, emoluments: http://www.politico.com/blogs/under-the-radar/2017/08/09/trump-emoluments-lawsuit-schedule-241443 ‘ “A lawsuit contending that President Donald Trump’s business dealings with and in foreign countries violate the Constitution is set to get a public airing in October in a New York federal courtroom.” . “The Justice Department is defending Trump in the litigation and contends that the foreign emoluments clause does not cover routine business payments, even if foreign governments are involved.” . Of course they’re routine payments. A. $33,000 a night hotel suite?

Lots more real estate matters to examine at too: https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/06/13/trump-property-buyers-make-clear-shift-secretive-llcs/102399558/ . “Since President Trump won the Republican nomination, the majority of his companies’ real estate sales are to secretive shell companies that obscure the buyers’ identities, a USA TODAY investigation has found. . Over the last 12 months, about 70% of buyers of Trump properties were limited liability companies – corporate entities that allow people to purchase property without revealing all of the owners’ names. That compares with about 4% of buyers in the two years before.” August 10, 2017 11:28 AM Log in to Reply Noway2016 Libs silencing Diamond and Silk? Pathetic attempt to silence and damn body who supported Trump! Typical lib tolerance, huh? Absolutely disgusting. They.Will.Never.Stop. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/diamond-silk-blast-youtube-demonetizing-95-videos-supporting-trump/ August 11, 2017 1:51 AM Log in to Reply Andrew C. Pope I don’t get why they’re complaining, the Trump campaign pays them for their videos and public appearances. I guess they’re just upset an additional revenue stream got cut off. .. By the way, “Diamond and Silk” may think that YouTube is violating “our First Amendment [sic],” but nothing YouTube has allegedly done violates the actual First Amendment. The First Amendment protects individuals from government censorship of speech, it does not protect you from being sanctioned, censored, or called a moron by private individuals or companies. As my Con Law professor said… the First Amendment allows you to sound like an idiot, and allows me to tell you you’re an idiot.

I get that you’re on the other side of the aisle, but they are genuinely being surpressed by YouTube, albeit legally. It would be like someone telling you you can practice real estate law but not write up wills. They’d be messing with your earning potential, which you know ain’t honorable or the right thing to do.
