MSNBC's Rachel Maddow now discussing how Chicago bank chief executive Stephen Calk, who loaned $16 million to Paul Manafort, apparently thought he could buy himself a top "roll" in the Trump administration...such as the secretary of the Army and a long list of others. She's showing screenshots of documents submitted as evidence in the Manafort trial. Hmmmm. Seems to be another glaring example of the many unqualified and unethical Cabinet level appointees.
