He really dictates the laws doesn't he. 

He's getting awfully close to being able to dictate which laws are followed and which aren't and how they're followed.

He may not have full control at this point or ever, but he should have no control.  His meddling is a serious threat to the foundations of our country.

If I am reading the statement of the DOJ correctly, these prosecutors misled the DOJ leadership on the guidance they were going to give.  That is a pretty serious, and, I believe criminal act.

Can you cite the federal law against this behavior?

You’re not. Sentencing guidelines are straightforward and self-defining.

"On a day when career prosecutors showed more backbone than almost every Republican senator standing up to this president, Americans ... are gravely concerned about the corruption of a Trump Justice Dept. that abandons the rule of law ... Roger Stone, I'm looking at you."

:yes:

:yawn:  Let me know when something is done about it.

The feeling of injustice.  As a white male guess this is just a taste of what many have always felt.

I honestly can’t speak to how corrupt this appears or is but it’s seems incredible to me that someone can’t look at this and at least question what has happened.  Four lawyers (I’m assuming career lawyers) don’t just do this unless there something deeply concerning going on.  @Henry Ford @Zow - am I wrong here?

No, you’re not wrong.

Why Bill Barr’s DOJ replaced Catholic Charities with Hookers for Jesus

Quote

Why? Well, it turns out the head of the Catholic Charities affiliate had been active with Democrats and the Phoenix group had opposed President Trump’s immigration policies. By contrast, Hookers for Jesus is run by a Christian conservative and the Lincoln Tubman group was launched by a relative of a Trump delegate to the 2016 convention.

It's great how the POTUS only represents those who voted for blindly worship him.

Are we discussing the "national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare” somewhere around here?  This is a couple of days old so I could have missed it.

This post is better suited for the Trump stock thread where everything is awesome when you're part of the Trump team.

So according to Trump the military, legislative branch, justice department,  and the fbi/intelligence agencies are all corrupt.  He is the only one to believe.  Ha.

This just seems like it has to be true.

When Reince Priebus was the White House chief of staff, President Donald Trump repeatedly asked him whether badgers, the state animal of Priebus' home state of Wisconsin, are mean to people, how they work, and how aggressive they can get.
 

Quote

After Trump was reminded that the short-legged omnivore was practically synonymous with the Badger State, he'd make a point of bringing it up at seemingly random occasions to his beleaguered chief of staff.

'Are they mean to people?' Trump at least twice asked Priebus in the opening months of his presidency. 'Or are they friendly creatures?' The president would also ask if Priebus had any photos of badgers he could show him, and if Priebus could carefully explain to him how badgers 'work' exactly.

He wanted Reince — resident White House badger historian, apparently — to explain to him Wisconsin's obsession with the animal, how the little critters function and behave, what kind of food they like, and how aggressive or deadly they could be when presented with perceived existential threats.

Trump also wanted to know if the badger had a 'personality' or if it was boring. What kind of damage could a badger to do a person with its flashy, sharp claws?

An obviously enthralled president would stare at Priebus as the aide struggled for sufficiently placating answers, all the while trying to gently veer the conversation back to whether we were going to do a troop surge in Afghanistan or strip millions of Americans of healthcare coverage.

My family - all from Wisconsin - just got a big chuckle out of this.  Too crazy to be fake.

That sounds like dealing with a 5-year old.

I'll say it again, Trump, or at least his body, has been taken over by aliens.

This anecdote is actually so similar to the gorilla channel joke that it feels like the simulation is glitching again.

He was probably trying to decide if he wanted to hire one to be his next press secretary.

Today, after 2 years with Fox News, Hope Hicks a 'friend to the President' rejoined the WH staff, reporting to Jared Kushner, trump's son-in-law. Nepotism.  Cronyism.  'Only the best people.'  Your tax dollars at work.  Worst. Administration. Ever.  And it's barely news.

Nepotism because she's "like a daughter" to him? She probably is the best person.

The point about tax dollars at work is a good one, though. She's reportedly coming back to help work on the campaign. Tax dollars aren't supposed to be used for that.

Sens. Merkley and Van Hollen have introduced new legislation that would require the Senate to consider evidence and hear from witnesses in future impeachment trials. It would ensure the rights of both sides to call relevant witnesses and intro evidence.

This won't go anywhere, nor should it.
