    This presidential election season just got crazier. The First Department (the NY Appeals court covering Manhattan) ruled today that the lawsuit brought by the Attorney General of the State of New York against Trump University and Donald Trump can move forward to trial. The Donald and his lawyers had sought to dismiss the suit because they argued a three year statute of limitations had applied and the conduct alleged occurred more than three years prior to the filing of the suit. Further they argued that the law the AG brought the case under did not allow the AG to bring a fraud action for damages but only allowed the AG to bring an injunction to stop the fraudulent activity.

    The Dems have Whitewater and perjury. Trump supporters are not likely to cave for this. Compared to Benghazi and classified emails . . .

    . . . so?

    You're right. Trump's rubes will follow him no matter what.

    If you read the entire article you will see that every counter maneuver by Trump was a lie and deceit. Here's the summary statement at the end of the article.

    Reading the decision provides an outline of Trump’s entire persona: Promise big, promote your greatness, claim personal involvement, say you’ll hire the best, then run for the hills.

    Rubes or not. They know he's not squeaky clean. He's clean enough, and, right now, they appear to be the majority. Wonder why the Dems aren't running this up the flag pole?

    35% of GOP primary voters are a majority? That must be the new math I keep hearing about.

    Because they want to face Trump because they know they can beat him.
