Rachel Maddow describes the reporting published in The New Yorker about a Donald Trump business deal that raises a lot of red flags, not the least of which is an alarmingly close proximity to the business of the Iranian National Guard, sponsor of terrorism.

Rachel.
excellent job.
you are figuring it out.
keep digging.
stay focused, pay attention.
your intelligence is expanding rapidly. I am impressed.
you're awesome.
"keep secret" is wrong. "keep it a secret, kept it a secret, be kept a secret" is correct.
"basically a break-dance move". lmao.

Keep up the good work Rachel. We need this kind of investigating. #45 will do his best to bury it and his people ...well they just don't care.

This kind of investigative journalism is extremely difficult, at a time when income from advertising in print media is in sharp decline. Independent journalists are heroes, and more careful reporting like this is a critical check to power in a democracy. By using intermediary gangsters, as he has in the past, he gains plausible deniability. Trump is the new Teflon Don, and he even uses family as insulation. There is certainly a Pulitzer prize out there for the journalist who finds the connection, but so far we in the public haven't seen it yet. The successful story should be simple enough that even the average voter will find hard to ignore. Unfortunately building a case for overt corruption in this kind of situation takes years, which will be far too slow.

Ivanka would be so hot in an orange jump suit, but I am guessing Nordstoms still won't carry the line.

The full story on the Tacoma bridge is that when designed the engineers did not account for the constant strong winds that funnel through the straits, and those winds created harmonic vibrations in the bridge. They condemned the bridge because they knew over time this would weaken the bridge an it would be unsafe.

So in deciding how to tear it down, they decided the easiest and safest way would be to loosen the suspension cables and let it tear itself down. So the videos you see of the bridge wildly oscillating are due to the support system being weakened.

The car on the bridge is not some unfortunate drive that got on the bridge at the wrong time. It was put there loaded with measuring equipment because the engineers wanted to study the motion. In better versions of the video you can see a guy running back from the car. That was a physics grad student who was working on the study coming back after checking on the equipment.

Why won't he release his tax records? Hmmm. Because not only will he owe the country a shipload of money, but he will end up in PRISON!

None of this investigation will go anywhere because Americans are not too bright and easily distracted. I don't mean all of them, but the uneducated, or under-educated, aren't concerned about pressing issues like patent corruption in their government as much as "party loyalty, " which I consider the same as gang loyalty.
As a student, I was amazed that the German people could have followed such a bad person as Hitler, never imagining we'd be here today. Trump isn't smart like Hitler (who himself was crazy), but is manipulated by Bannon and his own paranoia, and prodded along by proud followers who'd rather shoot themselves in the foot than admit that they're wrong.
So, in the end, this is a web of collusion, corruption, and blackmail. Because of its complexity, involving many nations and even more players, the Trump followers, and perhaps most of America, will become bored and distracted before they can sit through the whole story.
Goodbye to the America I grew up in. I'm going to miss what you stood for. We had a good run. You are no longer the world's #1 superpower. You are a banana republic run by a madman.

I just read the New Yorker article Rachel Maddow talks about. I hope that she, and her staff are chasing those sources down and confirming the information that is in it.
