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.
