He's still got options, those arrangement's aren't at all meaningful... 
  he's also still reputedly got ownership through double-blind trusts 
and other vehicles, and he fought hard to keep it all.   And yeah, he's 
getting paychecks from them on an ongoing basis.  The company and its 
subs are getting thrown sweetheart deals left and right.  I'm no 
investigative reporter but if I were I'd be pounding the pavement 
trying to assess the bidding process by which they got the Guantanamo 
Bay deal and the two Iraq oil field deals.

If this had been Clinton and company the GOP extremists would've been 
screaming so hard they'd have given themselves aneurisms, and everybody 
on this list knows it.
