Trump has tons of scandals to his name. Because of that many believe him to be guilty of...well...pretty much anything. "Where there's smoke, there's fire" is a refrain often heard when talking about Trump. I can understand such sentiments. If someone has a bad rep its usually for a good reason.

But there's other situations where the refrain of "where there's smoke there's fire" has often used. Ex: Hillary Clinton. She has over 20 scandals to her name.

Other than Trump, Nixon, and Hillary what other Politicians have had so many scandals to their name?

Note: This list is only for people that have actually been elected to some office or has held some position with in the Federal Government.

I don't know what the count is, but Obama has a fair number of scandals...but nobody cared.

Nah...nobody cared about him being black. They didn't care about his scandals because his buddies in the media didn't care about his scandals.

I guess a vast media conspiracy is better than the directly racist narrative. Good for you.

When you compare the left's treatment of Kavenaugh with Trump, you see the utter abandonment of the need for proof by the left. It's all "making it up as you go" and then use each other as "unnamed sources". Now we suddenly have "leaks" of a Mueller draft report countering other reports that the Mueller report is going to be "disappointing". Dueling baloney is what we have here.

The media just can't wait until the report is out so they are going to dream up their own version and peddle it off as "unnamed sources say". The media is making it's own smoke.

People have completely lost their minds, and the news media is playing Americans as suckers. No good comes out of false flag news.

The only safe place to get real news is Trump.com, right?

No. You can get "news" from a lot of sources...even a little real news from the media. You don't need to rely on Trump.com.

No they aren't. They are doing a very good job at it. I mean, just look at how many media consumers actually believe their "reports" from unnamed sources.
