    I almost Believe him.
    It's a sad admission and shows Ignorance.

    But while he may have not known 'HSBC' (aka formerly Hong Kong, Shanghai, Bank Corp) was, or that it even was a Bank, he must have known those letters were a Corporate entity.

    So the ethics problem remains.

    There were company logos all over the place where he went.

    If Rangle is not forced out then Pelosi should be impeached as a conspirator.

    So what does it mean? I see it on my credit card email. I'll guess the B is for banking.

    He and Marion Barry should hang out together. I'm glad that they are both getting what they deserve.

    This **** is absolutely unreal. Just....wow.
    I'd say, from a man in his position, he should have know. Ignorance is no excuse...

    I honestly don't think he was ignorant. He just wants us to believe he was ignorant.

    No, I don't think so either. He's always oozed slimy corruption out of every pore...
