Today on The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

According to the latest reports it appears that Donald Trump and the Trump Foundation have broken the law by giving $25,000 to a political group supporting Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi in an effort to discourage her office from investigating Trump University, thus using the Foundation for Trump’s personal benefit, according to an IRS complaint filed today by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). The complaint calls for an investigation into the Foundation for violating the tax code by providing a private benefit to Trump and his business interests and falsely representing its political giving on its tax returns. The complaint further calls for an investigation into Trump for engaging in prohibited self-dealing.  Joining me today to talk all about the corrupt pay-to-play relationship between the Republican Presidential nominee and the Florida Attorney General is Noah Bookbinder the Executive Director of CREW. 

Earlier today it was reported that a federal judge brokered a temporary agreement in an emergency hearing over the construction of the Bakken pipeline, or Dakota Access pipeline. The temporary deal between The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the pipeline’s builders, as well as the Army Corps of Engineers will halt construction on some, but not all, of the 1,172-mile pipeline that would pump oil from the fracked shale deposits in North Dakota to an oil hub in Illinois.  Joining me today to talk all about the pipeline and the protests against it which turned violent on Saturday is anti-pipeline activist Jane Fleming Kleeb who is also the Nebraska Democratic Party Chair and the Founder of the group Bold Nebraska
