Online betting site #PaddyPower reports only one way traffic regarding the odds of +RealDonald Trump getting impeached during the first six months of his Presidency.

The odds of Trump getting impeached in the first six months stand at 4 to 1; other Trump offerings gaining traction include the future of his marriage to #MelaniaTrump and failing to complete his first term.

+RealDonald Trump advisor #KellyanneConwayry condones the phrase #alternatefacts for those occasions when you want to avoid the truth.

Based on Trump's propensity to lie, #alternatefacts is a phrase we are going to hear frequently.

Actual facts not working for you? Social-media users found more than a few ways Kellyanne Conway's phrase could come in handy.

+RealDonald Trump continued ownership interest in Trump Organization is violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Emoluments Clause and an impeachable offense.
According to experts, President Donald Trump’s continued ownership interest in the Trump Organization means that he is in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, which prohibits the president from personally benefiting from actions taken by foreign governments and their agents. Will media hold Trump accountable for this impeach

It is not clear whether the communications had anything to do with Donald J. Trump or his campaign.

Why hasn't gallerist #FredDorfman faced criminal charges as mastermind who realized $6 million net for selling 37 unauthorized #JasperJohns stolen by #JamesMayer from the Artist's studio?.

For reference, #JamesMayer, Jasper Johns' longtime assistant plead guilty to art theft of these stolen unauthorized artworks and was sentenced to 18 months in prison and ordered to pay $13 million in restitution and forfeit $3.9 million.

#FredDorfman repeatedly asked #JamesMayer if he had access to Mr. Johns’ discarded and/or unfinished artworks not intended for sale, and pressured Mayer to obtain as many artworks as he could so they could sell them together. Eventually Dorfman sold the works for about $10 million gross with Mayer keeping $4 million and Dorfman the $6 million balance.

The Dorfman defendants fraudulently provided all buyers with photographs purporting to show the stolen works listed among other legitimate #JasperJohns works from the artist’s studio ledger, even printing counterfeit “Johns” labels to affix to the verso of the stolen unauthorized works.

The Dorfman defendants also falsely indicated the "unauthorized Johns artworks were not only included in the forthcoming Jasper Johns catalog raisonné and but also recorded in the Jasper Johns studio archives"

The Dorfman defendants were aware these statements were false, but disingenuously provided them “knowing the purchaser would rely on this misrepresentation” to justify the fraudulent sales.

The FBI and five other law enforcement and intelligence agencies have collaborated for months in an investigation into Russian attempts to influence the November election, including whether money from the Kremlin covertly aided President-elect Donald Trump, two people familiar with the matter said.
