GOP operatives charged with funneling $25,000 from Russian citizen to Trump campaign in 2016The Justice Department on Monday charged two prominent Republican operatives who allegedly helped a Russian citizen illegally donate $25,000 to the Trump campaign in 2016. In a shocking twist, Current POTUS son found accepting job and paid millions on Ukranian board he was entirely unqualified for in order to provide access to father amid crack addiction for which he will create a best-selling book for rather than face jail time...
