Not 'new' news, but retrospective comparisons to #TrumpRussia are pretty déjà vu.
In 1987:
Donald Trump, Wharton Dean Donald Palmer and former White House Chief of Staff Donald Regan named in scheme to divert Wharton funds to Contra rebels in Nicaragua. Big scandal then.
President Ronald Reagan claimed he had no knowledge of their scheme. Wharton secretary acted as link between Wharton Dean, Russell Palmer, and Oliver North.
Link to Daily Pennsylvanian full article pdf (from 4/2/1987):…
Oliver North used money from Donald Trump to buy ammunition given to U.S. enemy as part of Ronald Reagan's Iran-Contra affair.
Oliver North became fall guy. All should have been charged/convicted as well.

So, does this lead Trump to think he can get away with it like Pres. Reagan did? Not so sure. Lessons from 1987 hopefully were learned by prosecutors then & passed forward to people like Robert Mueller today.
Hope Trump charged in #TrumpRussia affair.
