We all know how reserved Donald Trump is, right? With so much having been revealed regarding the DoJ and FBI efforts against him, both before he was in office and after, and the same institutional efforts in support of Clinton covering up her crimes, why has Trump not acted to disrupt the institutionalized corruption? I’m […]
