Anyone else think that someone in the WH might be manipulating the markets? Wouldn't put it past him and his cohorts.

It's a better way to make a killing than fishy real-estate deals. And exactly who would investigate/prosecute?

4. The WH is

putting its paws on the pulse of the markets and leaking propaganda to boast the fortunes of the entire rump team. Republicans want their ROI and have had their hands out or in our pockets for decades. imo
