Sarah Suckabee-Handers, a.k.a. Satan's whore of a mouthpiece, professionally whines that Trump is being investigating for yet more corruption.

Quote

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday evening waved off concern over a new report that President Trump’s inauguration committee is under criminal investigation by blaming Democrats for the probe.

“This didn’t have anything to do with the President, he was focused on the transition and building out a new government and preparing to take office,” Sanders told Fox News Thursday night. “The role that the President had in the inauguration was to raise his hand and take the oath.”

“I think this is a perfect example of Democrats recognizing that all the accusations they made and the information that came out of the Michael Cohen case has nothing to do with the President,” she continued. “So now they’re going to — I would say plan B, but this is more like plan D or E or F to take this President down.”

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that the Southern District of New York had opened a criminal investigation into the Trump inauguration committee to determine whether donors paid for access to government officials.


But yeah, it's the mean old Demonrats ("Yeah, I said it. DEMON RATS!") who started an investigation using FEDERAL prosecutors who are actually under Trump's DoJ. The only people dumber than those in the Trump administration are those who support it.

More rectal tongue bathing of Dear Leader by Lindsey Graham. I gotta' give him one thing, when he decided to go "toady" he went full on 110% toady!

Quote

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), a staunch supporter of President Trump, said Friday that Trump directing Michael Cohen to make hush-money payments could represent a campaign finance violation “in theory.” But he cautioned Democrats against crying impeachment.

“Campaign finance violations have never been used to impeach anybody,” Graham told Neil Cavuto on Fox News.

“If you think that this is worthy of impeachment in the House, go ahead,” Graham said. “I think most Americans probably won’t agree with you.”

"Never been used?" Here's a history lesson, Linsdsey. There have been two impeachments; the most recent one being pure bullshit and the prior one being pretty suspect. Basically they've never been used but they could constitute the best reason for impeachment in the nation's history.

Betsy DeVos, the woman who protected for-profit colleges defrauding of America's students, just lost her case.

Quote

The U.S. Education Department said it will forgive $150 million in federal student loans as part of a 2016 rule that Secretary Betsy DeVos previously tried to block.

Department officials began notifying 15,000 students on Friday that their loans will automatically be erased because they attended colleges that closed while they were still in school or shortly after they finished. About half of them attended campuses under the for-profit Corinthian Colleges chain, which collapsed in 2015 amid widespread accusations of fraud.

The students are eligible for loan relief under an Obama-era rule that was intended to make it easier for defrauded students to get their loans cleared. Part of the rule granted automatic loan forgiveness to students who attended colleges that closed more than three years in the past and who never attended another school afterward.

DeVos delayed the rule in 2017 following a legal challenge from a California association of for-profit colleges, and she later moved to scrap the rule entirely and proposed her own replacement, which would have eliminated automatic loan discharges and raised the bar to prove fraud by schools.

But a federal judge ruled in September that her delay was unlawful, siding with Democratic attorneys general from more than a dozen states who sued over the postponement. A month later, the same judge dismissed another challenge by the California association, effectively clearing the way for the rule to take effect.

DeVos has continued to oppose the rule, calling it “bad policy,” and says she still plans to write new rules that will protect borrowers and taxpayers. Still, the Obama-era law could remain in effect until at least July 2020, when any new policy written by DeVos could take effect.

The automatic discharges were hailed as a victory by groups that represent borrowers, but they said it’s just the first step in the rule’s implementation. Several drew attention to more than 100,000 other students who say they were swindled by their schools but are still waiting on the Education Department to decide their applications for loan relief.

That pillar of corruption, Ryan Zinke, IS GOING, GOING, ... GONE!!!

Quote

President Donald Trump announced Saturday morning that embattled Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will leave his post at the end of the year, and that the administration will announce his replacement next week.

Zinke has been reportedly casting about for employment safety nets for a while, eyeing posts at Fox News, though the network denies talking with Zinke, and energy companies. He has also mulled staying in politics, with an eye on the 2020 Montana governor race.

Though Trump has a great personal affinity for Zinke, the Interior Secretary has found himself in the middle of countless probes into his Scott Pruitt-esque ethical misdeeds and has long been pegged as a Cabinet official with numbered days.


Here's a scientist's inside view of how corrupt this man and his minions really are.

Quote

This is a tough time to be a federal scientist—or any civil servant in the federal government. The Trump administration is clamping down on science, denying dangerous climate change and hollowing out the workforces of the agencies charged with protecting American health, safety and natural resources.

At the Department of the Interior (DOI), with its mission to conserve and manage America’s natural and cultural resources, the Trump administration’s political appointees are stumbling over one another to earn accolades for disabling agency operations. I should know; I was one of dozens of senior executives targeted by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke for reassignment in a staff purge just six months into the new administration.

From that day onward, Zinke and his political staff have consistently sidelined scientists and experts while handing the agency’s keys over to oil, gas and mining interests. The only saving grace is that Zinke and his colleagues are not very good at it, and in many cases the courts are stopping them in their tracks. The effects on science, scientists and the federal workforce, however, will be long-lasting.

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

Something else to drive Trump even more insane. He and his little demon spawns are basically going to be under investigation for a long, long time.

Quote

Former National Enquirer senior editor Jerry George said Monday night that he knew of stories killed by his old magazine and its Trump-sympathetic publisher that implicated Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump in “criminal activity.”

“They’re certainly embarrassing,” he told MSNBC’s Ari Melber about stories killed concerning President Donald Trump. “And then when you get involved with the actions of his children, including his daughter and son-in-law, we’re getting closer to criminal activity.”

George added that he believes the magazine acted together with the Trump campaign to break the law, and that there is still “another shoe to drop” now that America Media Inc., the National Enquirer’s parent company, has been granted immunity by federal prosecutors.

George homed in on Kushner, suggesting that he played a significant role in communication between AMI and the Trump campaign. “I definitely think that once Michael [Cohen] stepped aside, there was foot traffic between people in the Trump Organization, including Jared, into the American Media organization,” George said.

George also nodded to Kushner’s ties with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, saying that the magazine featured the royal on its cover, an odd move for a domestically-focused publication, and soon after received a mysterious influx of cash.

Lots of reporters dug into every aspect of the Clinton foundation without any evidence of wrongdoing, while all (save one who fortunately won a Pulitzer for it), totally ignored all the evidence---in plain sight---of the wrongdoing of the Trump foundation. Not sure it would have made a difference in the election (since, apparently, all the obvious misdeeds of Trump that were reported didn't seem to bother voters much at all) but it sure would be nice to believe they can at least see the things that are as plain as the nose on their face. But no, I suppose that is too much to ask.

Trying to keep up with all of the status updates of the vast number of investigations into all things Trumpy is mind boggling. Here's what's going on with the state attorney generals' emoluments lawsuit and how a scared shitless Trump team (i.e. his pets at the DoJ) is desperately trying to fend off the next step. I bolded one part that is particularly hypocritical given Trump's cheering of the Texas judge who seemingly ignored any and all of a staggering amount of case law to try to strike down Obamacare.


Quote

President Trump’s Justice Department is scrambling to stop two state attorneys general from procuring evidence about whether the President is violating the Constitution’s emoluments clause by filing an emergency appeal in the Fourth Circuit court.

Warning that attorneys general from Maryland and DC have sent 38 subpoenas to third parties, Justice Department attorneys argue that the court needs to halt the lawsuit at the district court level before documents from those subpoenas are returned by a January 3 deadline.

Trump lost a motion to dismiss the suit at the district court level in the case, and he filed the appeal as a petition for writ of mandamus, essentially asking the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to override the lower court and halt the case immediately before throwing it out entirely.

DOJ attorneys argue that the state attorneys general have a “fundamentally flawed” view of the Constitution and that the lower court judge, District Judge Peter Messitte, committed a “manifest abuse of discretion” in failing to allow an appeal of his decision denying a motion to dismiss.

The brief at times exudes a panicky tone regarding the impending responses to the 38 subpoenas that have been sent in the case. Trump’s lawyers write that “plaintiffs have already propounded thirty-eight subpoenas to third parties, including to five federal agencies,” since Judge Messitte ordered discovery to begin this month.

“The President is likely to obtain mandamus, and he is likely to suffer irreparable injury in the interim from the intrusive discovery into his personal finances and the official actions of his Administration (including through third-party subpoenas of government agencies),” the filing reads.

Trump attorneys also argue that the a violation of the emoluments clause, even as alleged by the state attorneys general, doesn’t give them the right to sue to enforce it.

Through dense legalese, they argue that the plaintiffs “are asserting only a generalized grievance shared by all members of the public.” That “grievance” supposedly stems from “having an official comply with constitutional provisions adopted for the benefit of the public generally.”

Other elements of the brief descend into early U.S. history, going back to the plantations and land purchases made by the founding fathers and early presidents.

Much like the defenses put up in almost every other publicized case about a Trump investigation it appears the DoJ's case to dismiss the emoluments lawsuit is pretty weak gruel.

Quote

The Justice Department finds itself mired in a high-stakes game of warding off pending evidence requests in a state attorneys general emoluments lawsuit against Donald Trump, but took an odd tack in emergency appeal: citing a Mount Vernon tourist website to claim that George Washington did business with foreign governments.

The website lists “Ten Facts About the Gristmill” at Mount Vernon, providing tidbits for tourists, elementary school students preparing reports on American history, and DOJ attorneys tasked with advocating on behalf of the president.

The Justice Department cited the website as an example of how Washington’s plantation would “export flour and cornmeal to ‘England, Portugal, and the island of Jamaica.'”

There is not ultimate citation of this little factoid supplied. As the person who found this tweeted:
