Buying In Bulk

We know that Donald Trump paid off Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi so that she wouldn’t join in the lawsuit against Trump University.  But she wasn’t the only one.

Republican Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton moved to muzzle a former state regulator who says he was ordered in 2010 to drop a fraud investigation into Trump University for political reasons.

Paxton’s office issued a cease and desist letter to former Deputy Chief of Consumer Protection John Owens after he made public copies of a 14-page internal summary of the state’s case against Donald Trump for scamming millions from students of his now-defunct real estate seminar.

That story is from June, but along with this story about Trump donating to Chris Christie around the time of a settlement regarding New Jersey casinos, and you’re beginning to see a pattern here: buy in bulk and save.
