They have nothing to say to this point. It shows them all up. Trump has been mentioning it a lot and he needs to continue hammering it home whenever he gets the chance. Lobbying is one of the most destructive things to a democratic system.

Trumps campaign slogan should be "Even if I lose, I'll buy a winner"

But if he is currently benefitting from said system why would he want to change if? I've rarely ever seen someone smart act against their own interest. So why does Trump want to change the system? This is what I can't figure out.

My guess is, Trump is the kind of guy who likes leading and likes being the center of things. He dominated American business, now he's bored of that and wants to dominate American politics.

It's sad that we need a court jester like Trump to point out the elephants in the room.

What do you think Jon Stewart has been all these years?

Jon Stewart was great at this job, but he did have a major liberal bias. I liked how he would hold media accountable, though.

I am terrified by the fact that I agree with Trump. It's depressing that piece of shit is the most honest and dependable Republican candidate.

When they're all lying swindling crooks, you might as well get the one who will call out all the others since he's honest about himself.

The nice thing about people who don't care what they say is that they are most likely telling the truth.

I would argue that Ben Carson is pretty genuine, seems like a great dude that hasn't breen corrupted by politics in Washington. At least yet.

Trump is a clown unfit for presidency but his campaign act is certainly exposing the circus of the American oligarchy to us in bright relief.

Politifact says that Trump donated $10,000 to Scott Walker's gubernatorial campaign and $500 to Jeb Bush.

Donald Trump says he gave most of his debate opponents campaign money. He didn’t.

If he contributed to their PACs he would not have to disclose it.

Edit: due to all the streams of dark money going to politicians, they don't know who is supporting them and who isn't. Nor do the really care, unless it's a billionaire who will later call in favors.

Candidates also aren't allowed to know what goes on in their PACs.

That's not true. When a small group of people contribute 99% of the funds in a PAC, setup the PAC, announce that they are doing that, have conversations with the candidate that they are doing it - it's no secret.

It depends on how the PAC is chartered. The ones that spend all they have after operating expenses on electioneering and ads have to disclose their donors. The groups that don't have to disclose their donors have to spend half their proceeds on educational and cultural endeavors.

I'd note that she's been mum about all this so far, which is pretty damning as I see it.
