Re: Trump -- the last 100 days

the most likely outcome seems to be that the House won't vote on the measure within the necessary timeframe. I thought it was covered by the usual rule under the Congressional Review Act (passed by speaker Gingrich as part of the Contract With America)
Congress has a window of time lasting 60 legislative days (i.e., days that Congress is actually in session, rather than simple calendar days) to disapprove of any given rule by simple majority vote; otherwise, the rule will go into effect at the end of this period.

but your article references the end of the current Congress (January 2019) as the cut-off, when all legislation passed by one chamber but not the other dies

President Donald Trump donated his first quarter 2018 salary to the Department of Veterans Affairs for their caregiver programs – including support for mental health and peer support – continuing in his tradition of donating his salary each quarter.
(snip)
Trump’s previous salary checks have gone to the Department of the Interior, Department of Education, Department of Health and Human Services, and Department of Transportation, in that order.
DOI Secretary Ryan Zinke designated the funds to be used in upkeep on national battlefields. DOE Secretary Betsy DeVos marked funds for a STEM-focused camp. Acting HHS Secretary at the time, Eric Hargan said funds would be used to fight the opioid epidemic. DOT Secretary Elaine Chow designated funds to be used for the department’s Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) Grant Programs.

 If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

that is a very ironic quote, because versions of it have been attributed to Lenin, Mao, Hitler, and Goebbels, none of who actually said it
It seems that the lie (that Lenin/Mao/Hitler/Goebbels/... said it) has been repeated often enough  for people to believe it.

With all the emoluments from foreign powers, who needs salary?

Odebrecht is not in Indonesia, I think. I mean there is some room for Trump's Stormy Construction & Real Estate.

I saw Alec B in the street in NYC a few weeks ago. Much shorter than I expected, he wasn’t wearing any socks and looked quite ill.
