What Are They Hiding?

Thom plus logo The Trump administration clearly has a lot to hide. The question is, what exactly are they hiding? Why is Steve Mnuchin willing to go to jail rather than share Trump's tax returns in private with members of Congress?

Why is Bill Barr refusing to answer questions from Congress and their staff? Are they covering up crimes? Are they covering up simple wrongdoing? And why would these people cover up on behalf of a grifter who most recently was convicted of fraud and paid a $25 million fine for it with Trump university? Is it so important to be that close to power that they are willing to ruin their reputations or even go to jail?

Or does Trump have something on them, too? What the hell is going on here?

A friend of mine turned me on to the book Escape from Camp 13. the memoirs of a North Korean who survived and escaped from one of Kim Jong Un's concentation camps for political prisoners. It is opening my eyes as to what is going on over there. Every time I hear of Agent Orange's "love affair" with Kim, I will reflect on what I am learning from this book. Either Trump is being totally played, or he is an unspeakable monster.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
