Pro-Trump youth group enlists teens in secretive campaign likened to a ‘troll farm’

"In the race for the White House with a pro Trump youth group enlisting teens to place messages online National political reporter Isaac Stanley Becker takes a closer look for the Washington Post and talked with our Bill O'Neill. Isaac. What do we know about this campaign and how it works? So what we know is that teenagers in the Phoenix area, including some miners, some folks under 18 18. Were enlisted this summer in an effort to plaster pro trump messages across social media, so thousands and 1000 tweets and Facebook comments with identical content nowhere in any of this, disclosing that people posting this material we're being paid to do so is part of a centralized in coordinated operation. Now, Of course, there are groups that link themselves to all kinds of ideologies and various candidates. What do we know about the group behind this campaign in particular? So what we know that it's it's over? Seen by a group called Turning Point Action, which is sisters before of better known turning Point USA, both led by Charlie Kirk, a 26 year old conservative activists. Very close to it that the Trump family he opened the Republican National Convention give the opening address there has been called a great friend by president That's the sort of group behind the scenes, and there was a more specific also, if UNIX based digital firm that was brought in to oversee the day to day of the posting in the vast, urging the coordination have we've seen anything like this in political circles before, So, of course, there are parallels in terms of political activism, You know, Astro turf ING efforts to Make a campaign or cause anymore grass roots or viral than it really is. But what is unique here and what experts are really tryingto understand and describe is the way in which the tools of social media and you know it's technologies are allowing users to do this in a way that you know, as I said, it makes it seem as though it's genuine. Um, sentiments of these young people when, in fact, it's being coordinated behind the teams in a way that's unseen because of the lack of disclosure that was going on here, so and that's why it's been like into the kind of troll farms that were run by foreign After is, you know, we get up to the 2016 election where you have paid people. Working from an office posting spam like material on Twitter and other platforms here. Of course, this is happening domestically in the U. S. Has there been any reaction from the online platforms such as Facebook and Twitter? There has been so both Facebook and Twitter responded when we brought this material to them and ask them questions. They've already removed a number of the account involved in it. And we're waiting for more answers about possible further action. And has there been any any reaction from the Trump campaign or even the Biden campaign at this point, not the campaign that I have seen s so this is a pro Trump organization. But of course, it's formally stepping from the campaign.

New York's state attorney general is investigating whether Donald Trump illegally inflated the value of his business assets

"One of the ANC brought more tough legal news for the president to end his family. A new court filing revealed that New York's attorney. General is investigating the trump organization for allegedly inflating the value of its assets to get loans state AJ Latisha James wants a judge to order the trump or to provide documents and compel testimony from the president's son Eric. As executive vice president. Now, according to this filing the younger trump abruptly cancelled and interview with the office. Last month, we should note this civil investigation, not a criminal case in a statement today their chief legal officer said, the company has done quote nothing wrong to that end, we welcome back to our broadcast Barbara, mcquade, veteran federal prosecutor, former US attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan. Counselor. It's good to see you I'd love your read on how much. Legal jeopardy how much real trouble the trump team could be in on this front Well, it depends on the facts Brian, but it could be very serious. We know that Michael Cohen testified before Congress about the trump organization propensity to deflate the value of assets and revenue when it came to filing tax returns, but inflating revenue and assets when it came time to seek loans, and so that is what Latisha James is exploring here and what's interesting about it is. Eric. Trump. Cancelling at the last minute and refusing to appear not wanting to invoke his fifth amendment rights but actually doing so. And so it does appear that they're concerned and have something to hide and when someone has something to hide, it makes prosecutors all the more eager to find out what's inside. What are the odds that we will see him go into testify? Can you just walk around and say now I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA come in there. No you can't. I think the odds are really quite high that he will have to show up. I think this is a stall tactic. We see this time and again I think it is the trump way. The way that he has built the real estate empire is to play hard ball and to assert frivolous legal claims. But everybody has a duty to show up and answer the questions. Now, that doesn't mean he can't assert his fifth amendment rights when asked particular questions but he can't do it in a blanket fashion. He can't say I'm not coming at all. He has to show up I mean she might ask questions like what's your name that's not protected by the Fifth Amendment Privilege but if there are particular questions then at that moment, he has to assert his right then but I think that is the the visual the Specter that he may be trying to avoid because that's when it looks politically perhaps to some like an assertion of the fifth, the Fifth Amendment might be an admission of guilt. And Barb we mentioned civil versus criminal. Is this a potential advantage to him and his dad that this is a civil not criminal matter. Well sometimes, yes. I mean, civil means that the penalties will be money damages and not sending someone to prison. So in that way I suppose civil makes people a little less fearful but in many ways when you are the prosecuting entity thinking about whether you want to proceed civilly or criminally can bring with it advantages and disadvantages. One of the great advantages of proceeding civilly is the burden of proof is much lower. It's only preponderance of the evidence as opposed to the higher guilt beyond a reasonable doubt that's necessary criminal case, and so in some ways, it could be more dangerous for the trump's to be facing a civil investigation because of different legal standard. Final question because Americans love being able to pick it things, they're not supposed to see. Can you manage expectations? There is no expectation correct that at the end of this case, or during this case, people get to take a look at the president's tax returns. It depends you're right. I don't know that we'll see the whole tax returns on display but if the attorney general is able to get her hands on the records, you may see allegations that come out of them in a complaint to civil complaint that would be filed here. So we may see excerpts, and if the case ever went to trial, those textures could end up being exhibits in court in. So in that way, they could be used in the day may come when we actually get to see them.

Deutsche Bank turned over Trump financial documents to New York prosecutors

"More trouble for the president another scandal that has dogged him actually now for most of his first term, here's the headline in the Times tonight quote trump's bank was subpoenaed by New York prosecutors in criminal inquiry. Here's the nut graph of that story. Here's how it starts the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, which means state prosecutors in New York state issued the subpoena last year to Deutsche Bank, which has been Mr trump's primary lender. Since the late nineteen nineties, they are seeking financial records that he and his company provided to your bank according to people familiar with the inquiry because of. Its long-standing and multifaceted relationship with trump Deutsche Bank has been a frequent target of regulators and lawmakers digging into the president's opaque finances but the subpoena from the Office of the District Attorney appears to be the first instance of a criminal inquiry involving trump and his dealings with Deutsche to lent him in and his company more than two billion dollars over the past two decades. Here's the amazing part the part that was the sort of draw jaw-dropping reveal in this story. Quote deutschebank complied with the subpoena. Out over a period of months last year, the bank provided the prosecutor's office with detailed records including financial statements and other materials that Mr Trump provided to the bank as he sought loans according to two of the people familiar with the inquiry. The subpoena to Georgia banks saw documents on various topics related to Mr Trump and his company including any materials that might point to possible fraud according to people briefed on the subpoenas contents. The bank's cooperation with the prosecutor's office is significant because other investigations that have sought trump's financial records have been stymied by legal challenges from the president and his family. This criminal investigation from New York prosecutors initially appeared to be focused on hush money payments made in two thousand sixteen to two women who said they had affairs with Mr Trump. But in a court filing this week prosecutors in the district attorney's office cited public reports of possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the trump organization and suggested they were also investigating possible crimes involving bank fraud. And Insurance Fraud. So. To be clear, this is a big deal that the New York Times is reporting tonight this is not about the subpoenas for the president's financial and tax information that were litigated up to the supreme. Court are now kicking around in the lower lower courts by the present, his lawyers seek to delay compliance with these subpoenas. What this is about is a subpoena of Deutsche Bank. which has loaned two billion dollars mysteriously to the president over his recent business career. Subpoenas to Deutsche, bank related to their dealings with the president, and these are not subpoenas that the president has successfully fended off in these tied up in court. This is a subpoena to Deutsche Bank the bank has complied with. And they have handed over all of this trump related documentation to state prosecutors were apparently pursuing a multifaceted criminal investigation of the president and his business an investigation that is not bound by the Justice Department's Ninety Day rule such as it is nor are they bound by the Justice Department's rules prohibiting the indictment of a sitting president because those rules are federal rules and these are state prosecutors? Prosecutors not answerable to attorney general the embar. Not only is it news that they are pursuing this stuff in the way that they are it is big news that in pursuing this information about the president, they got it they got their hands on this stuff from Deutsche Bank.

"Who else knows that the president's at this? Ellen. Weisselberg. Ron Liebman and Matthew Calamari. So to your knowledge. Did he commit a crime? Yes and these three people that he did, how is this not something that's under criminal investigation at Sdn as well or do we know that it isn't? I don't think we do know that it isn't I. Think the interesting thing to me is that the moment those words came out of Michael Collins Mouse last year I got on the phone with some of my sources at Deutsche Bank who had been looking in the ones that in the driver's when these loans may trump name media confirmed that might recall him says someone who is basically correct day system trump systematically overstated the value all sorts of assets and the bankers would go in and pour over his financial statements in his tax returns and look at. The values assigned to allow these assets and they're just kind of laughed themselves these route lately preposterously over the top and you know the bank dealt with by arguing that they just write down the value of the assets by as much as seventy percent and they still thought that he was worth lending to and I think the reality is that that might end up being trump's argument that couldn't be bank fraud because the bank new as well as anyone that he was prone to wild nations and so the bank wasn't taking him seriously and therefore it wasn't a cry. So. What responsibility does the bank half if he was submitting? Values that were so off that they laughed out loud and loaned him money anyway. The bank isn't responsible for enforcing the law in this case in deutchebanks as has been proven over over over the years doesn't really take very seriously. Generally, it's responsibility to enforce the rule of law. But I. I think the bank's responsibility at this point if to is operatives as it needs to be with investigators whether they're Capitol Hill or Suny or inside bans opposition, and the that this is a serious focus of Sivan's investigation. It would really surprise me if he isn't going to reach out to Deutsche Bank in seghal records on trump and his dealings with the back. I let me put out the I'll go ahead. I think that's really important because you said at the outset that this is bankrupt, it might be I mean did Deutsche Bank rely on this some cases you don't need tax returns to figure out the purchase price of a building in Manhattan and had other information including other. His tax information in some cases. So I think it's just just to be careful like they may have relied on it and to David's point. We can tell right now without seeing his tax returns the information in those documents that Michael Cohen presented to Congress in the there's some stuff in there. That's pretty crazy and it's off. So doesn't it doesn't take taxpayer to figure that out. Is it broad? I mean I think that you have to come down to the bank rely on it. So David pickup thread for me, and also just address some of reporting from the weekend Deutsche Bank Opens Review into the personal banker to trump and Kushner. Is there any intersection between these two lines of inquiry the criminal one in the looking at the banker to trump? Kushner? I'm not sure that they are causally connected to each other, but there's an enormous amount of overlap and Rosemary Bradley who is the longtime personal banker to trump as well as the Kushner family is now under investigation at the bank because of real estate deal, she did back in twenty thirteen personally where she purchased she a culvert Jamin colleagues purchase Hartman from an entity that now turns out to been partly owned by Jared Kushner and that strikes a lot. Of People as pretty glaring conflict of interest for the Bangor Rosemary grabbed them, and the reason that's important right now is that rabbit is the one who was initially she was a relationship manager for trump and so when trump or Michael Cohen would go to. Deutsche. Bank with overstated financial statements or paint a bluffing the bank they were interacting with her and she was developed such an important central role to trump ended his the people around him that VIP guests at the trump hotel in Washington at the inauguration can be happy seething at the inauguration is this someone who is deeply embedded in the DNA? Babar of trump organization's finances and subsidy extended. She is now in trouble at the bank that really that raises a lot of questions about you know what information people might be able to get out of her both inside the bank he had outside of the bank, and so we'll see. But there as I said earlier and I, think if Sivan's should seriously investigate in the way that the that trump in the trump organization presented themselves financially to Deutsche. Rosary gravel is not very high on the list of people that are gone. So then I wanNA, give you the last word and go ahead. No I just think one of the things to remember is trying to get he's going to be looking at these two issues, but he wants to look at the whole thing he wants to just put. All the pieces together both the tax returns all the financial statements he wants to see his hush money he wants to see you know was there bank fraud he wants to see as their foreign money? He wants to see everything I mean this is what he's Oscar there's no question. And I guess it had the same question that I asked David enrich was what I wanted to get to on the record on.

"The Trump organization is suing Allonge Cummings. The chairman of the house oversight committee over the panels. Request for eight years of President Trump's financial statements. Joining me now from Washington with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter, Rebecca ball house. Rebecca, this move adds another layer to what's already been contentious fight. Tell us about today's filing by the Trump organization, and why they're looking to block this attempt from the house panel. So we saw the Trump organization today file a lawsuit against both Elijah Cummings and this accounting firm as ours LLP, and what they're trying to do is block a subpoena that the committee filed last week against the company seeking eight years worth of Trump's financial statements. So the lawyers for the Trump organization are arguing that the subpoena could expose Trump's confidential financial information, and that it's lacking legitimate legislative purpose. There are also several inquiries into the president's finances. What specifically was the house intending? To look into by seeking these eight years worth of documents. What do they hope to eliminate by getting those these were documents that Michael Cohen referenced in his testimony to the oversight committee in February. And what Cohen was saying there and at the time he brought with him. I think about three years worth of financial statements that had been prepared by Mazars was that Trump inflated or deflated his the value of his assets, depending on the situation and basically for his own personal gate. And so while there's the separate effort by the House Ways and means committee underway to get Trump's tax returns this efforts with as ours is specifically focused on determining whether Trump was inflating or deflating his assets, depending on the situation, and you mentioned the attempt to get the president's tax returns, which he has said he will not release as he is under audit. What else can you tell us about other efforts to obtain the president's financial information? Well, we've seen that the House Judiciary committee is investigating. A number of fronts related to the president and his finances. They've sent letters to suffer will agencies and two associates of the president seeking documents related to matters, including his financial history. And we've also seen in the southern district of New York. There have been some efforts to look at the role of executives at his company in these hush money payments were arranged by Michael Cohen. So there's ongoing investigations into the president and his financial history on a number of fronts. So Rebecca what's next year? We did also hear from logic Cummings after the lawsuit was filed on Monday. So I think the next step is alleged Cummings. Put out a statement today defending his subpoena saying that they have the full thority to investigate this matter in his subpoena. He had given maze in April twenty nine deadline for when they need to turn over the requested documents. So we expect to see a hearing come likely pretty quickly because that's only a week from. Today. So the next step is gonna come from the federal court where the Trump organization filed their lawsuit, and we'll see have to see how that precedes. Their Wall Street Journal's Rebecca ball house joining me from Washington. Thank you so much Rebecca, thank you. Now onto some more headlines from the Wall Street Journal less than a week after saying he didn't plan to withdraw from consideration Herman Cain has asked President Trump. Not to nominate him for a seat on the Federal Reserve Board of governors the president announced canes request via Twitter on Monday. He had announced his intent to nominate Cain earlier this month. But at least four Republican senators had said, they would not back him throwing his confirmation into question. The president has also indicated plans to nominate conservative commentator Stephen Moore to one of two vacant seats on the Federal Reserve Board. The cost of social security will exceed its income by twenty twenty requiring the program to tap into its nearly three trillion dollar trust fund. The latest trustees report said the programs reserves would be depleted by twenty thirty five when the program will no longer be able to pay its full scheduled benefits. They also warned that social security and Medicare are facing long-term funding challenges and are pushing lawmakers to work on a solution for the.
