South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds is downplaying a recent report from the New York Times that alleges President Donald Trump received an equivalent today of more than $400 million from his dad’s real estate empire in the 90’s.

The Times reports much of that cash came through dubious tax schemes.

The Republican senator says congress would need evidence of wrongdoing before looking into Trump’s previous dealings.

Rounds, Thune Vote To Advance Nominee Kavanaugh

Oct 5, 2018

Senator Mike Rounds is echoing his Republican colleagues by calling the treatment of Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh a “search and destroy” mission by Democrats and special interest groups.

Kavanaugh is accused by three women of sexual assault in high school and college. His drinking has also come into question.

The South Dakota Republican voted earlier Friday to advance Kavanaugh’s nomination.

Rounds says Kavanaugh’s testimony only reinforced his decision on the nominee.
