Sarah Palin Considering Libel Lawsuit Against New York Times

Sarah Palin Considering Libel Lawsuit Against New York Times

.

Former Gov. Sarah Palin appears to be seriously considering a libel case against The New York Times. The Times published an editorial Wednesday night in which they revisited a conspiracy theory regarding the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) in 2011. The shooter, Jared Lee Loughner, was inspired to attack Giffords after seeing a map published by Palin's political action committee pointing out electoral districts, the editors surmised. That theory has debunked time and again, yet the Times editors did not get the message, using that conspiracy as context for Wednesday’s shooting at the congressional baseball practice. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) is still in critical condition after being shot in the hip, while four other people were also injured.

I strongly think that Palin should sue the crap out of the NY Times for slander and character assination.   Journalism malpractice is what I call it.   The only way to get through to these fools on the left is hit them in the pocket book. That might curb their behavior. 

.

I define evil in this way.  If someone does something to harm another and they know that what they're doing is wrong, then that is evil.   The NY Times knows what they did was wrong because they retracted it.   Just like CNN and the Washington Compost. They don't care because they are betting on that no one will see the retraction.   The NY Times and those other media outlets that are in line with NYT are evil and they have an agenda. Their agenda is of a far left liberal Democrat one.  They might as well be called 'state run media'.  They are not independent but they are beholden to the Democrat liberals. They are victims of their own ideology.

.

We the people need to continue to spread the word.  We the people need to fight evil and support people like Palin and wish her/them luck.  I think she has a case.  Maybe she's our Wonder Women to strike out at evil and leave a mark.

    BREAKING: Trump Advisor Says Trump Wants Out
    Trump Advisers Say He’s Going to RESIGN
    the expanding Russia investigation and obstruction of justice probe into President Trump are starting to take a toll on him according to multiple advisors.
    .
    Here’s what was reported
    .
    “But Trump, too, is cognizant of the comparison to Nixon, according to one adviser. The president, who friends said does not enjoy living in Washington and is strained by the demanding hours of the job, is motivated to carry on because he ‘doesn’t want to go down in history as a guy who tried and failed,’ said the adviser. ‘He doesn’t want to be the second president in history to resign.’”
    .
    So, basically, Trump wants out but he just doesn’t want to be remembered as a loser.
    .
    But, there’s credible information that Trump is waiting out resignation at this point. So far, Flynn has yet to testify against him since Congress refused to grant him immunity in exchange for his testimony – testimony that could have been extremely damaging to Trump.
    .
    According to Claude Taylor, who served on the staff of President Bill Clinton, Flynn’s testimony was enough for Trump to consider waving the white flag.
    .
    “An ind journalist I have worked with-who has been reliable-says they have 2 sources that say Trump is considering options-incl resignation.”
    .
    the information was also confirmed by Former chairman of RNC Steele, who told WWR at lunch that Trump will not finish his term; advises clients to bolster ties w/VP Pence.
    .
    In recent days there have been reports of Trump screaming at his television set from within side the walls of the White House. He doesn’t like how the media has been portraying him or how the investigation is going.
    .
    Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s decision to personally go after Trump for possible criminal acts and obstruction of justice has marked a turning point in the Russia collusion investigation, which until recently has only focused on Russia’s meddling into the 2016 presidential election.
    .
    Now – Mueller has issued subpoenas of President Trump’s personal bank accounts, along with his phone records. Since it’s an official court order, refusal to comply can result in contempt of court charge, punishable by jail, a fine, or both.
    .
    The move is expected to put Trump’s personal finances under a microscope. So far, Trump has been the only president in recent history to refuse to divulge his tax returns. The expanding probe is likely to reveal a ton of dirt from the president’s financial past.
    .
    USA Today even trolled the president with this BRILLIANT and COMICAL resignation letter that Trump would end up probably releasing via Twitter, should the day for his resignation ever come.
    ….
    Dear Secretary Tillerson,
    .
    Before I make Mike Pence the next president — he will be a great president — probably almost as great as me. Before I make him president, I want to thank my many admirers for their support. To the HUGE majority of Americans who trusted me to be president, thank you. I am deeply humbled by your faith. No one has ever been more humbled.
    .
    I have rewarded your faith with tremendous accomplishments and hard, hard work. I haven’t been golfing since my historic victory. And, I definitely haven’t been making taxpayers pay for the Secret Service to rent golf carts from me to protect me at my golf courses. Believe me.
    .
    No president has ever worked harder than I have. My administration has done more in less time than anyone else. And, we did it all with NO HELP from the losers in the press and crybabies in Congress and showboaters in law enforcement who are RUINING America.
    .
    The vast majority of Americans know that my victory last November — record-breaking, really, a landslide, the largest election victory in history — my victory and policies are moving this country in the white, I mean, right direction again. America is GREAT again!
    .
    And, folks, FOLKS: We are still going to have health care. Big, beautiful health care — best in the world. I promised that everyone would be covered and they will. The Congressional Budget Office estimates that my bill will increase costs and cause 23 million people to lose insurance. The CBO is FAKE NEWS, just a bunch of Democrats with slide rules.
    .
    You may have heard that my budget eliminates funding for the Appalachian Regional Commission. It doesn’t. Believe me. My budget director can’t know everything that I’m doing and thinking — I’m moving very fast. We are going to go to Congress and get MORE money for the Appalachian Regional Commission. I love Eastern Kentucky. West Virginia. Real Americans. Beautiful people.
    .
    With Mike Pence as president, we will continue to MAKE AMERICA GREAT. He and Mitch McConnell are working hard on tax relief, rounding up and deporting people, scrapping net neutrality rules, privatizing prisons, unwinding stupid regulations on banks and industries. LAW AND ORDER.
    .
    Speaking of law and order, as my last act as president, I am pardoning some members of my campaign staff and administration. First, your next president of the United States, Mike Pence. I’m pardoning him even though he did nothing wrong. Noth-ing. No one did anything wrong, but especially not Mike.
    .
    Next, I’m pardoning Michael Flynn, a great American. Wish I’d never let him go. The DEEP STATE wants you to believe that Michael Flynn took hundreds of thousands of dollars from Turkey and failed to register as a foreign agent. Didn’t happen. They want you to believe that he advocated for Turkey-friendly policies during my transition because he had received over half-a-million dollars in lobbying money. They claim he “lied” on paperwork and “lied” to Mike Pence about talking with Russian agents. FAKE NEWS. The real liar is CROOKED HILLARY. Lock her up!
    .
    I’m also pardoning my son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who has been treated very unfairly. The kid is big league. Did I ask him to set up a secret back channel line of communication with the Russian government using equipment in the Russian Embassy? I don’t know. But, you have to admire his spunk and smarts. Zero foreign policy experience and he already knew enough not to trust his own intelligence agencies.
    .
    Finally, I’m pardoning myself. My lawyers have told me that I may not have the authority to pardon myself. But, it’s not a conflict because I’m president. My lawyers — I have the best lawyers — have also told me that I don’t need to pardon myself because I didn’t know enough about how the federal government works to have intentionally obstructed justice. It’s true: Me and my people asked other intelligence services to pressure the FBI to stop investigating ties between my campaign and Russia. It’s true: I fired that showboater James Comey to put an end to the Russia stuff, FAKE NEWS. Just in case, I hereby pardon myself.
    .
    I have been badly mistreated. It’s abuse, really, but I was willing to take it because I love America. Big, beautiful America.
    .
    I know all the elite-coast Democrats and crooked media people are dreaming of impeaching me, of the day they can turn to me and say, “Donald, you’re fired.” Well, guess what? THEY’RE FIRED. I resign.
    .
    President Trump

      Mr. Mac Nasty is promoting Fake news.

      June 20, 2017
      1. mrmacq

        right, herr brn
        its all made up shit
        just like the following
        .
        When James Comey goes to Capitol Hill Thursday, he’ll tell the Senate intelligence committee that President Donald Trump asked him to drop any investigation into whether former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn made false statements to the FBI, according to Comey’s prepared statement. Comey, who was in charge of the bureau at the time, says he had no intention of complying with Trump’s request.
        .
        But the Flynn probe reportedly goes far beyond alleged false statements. It has now apparently been taken over by Robert Mueller, who was appointed as special counsel last month after Trump abruptly fired Comey. And that’s just one piece of what Mueller will be doing. As special counsel, he’ll oversee the widening federal investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election and potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and the Kremlin—an investigation that Trump has called a “witch hunt.”
        .
        Moreover, Mueller won’t be alone. Half a dozen other entities in two branches of government are looking into aspects of the scandal. Here’s a breakdown of the ongoing investigations, who is conducting them, and what they might be looking at:
        .
        Law enforcement agencies
        .
        On March 20, Comey confirmed that the FBI “is investigating the Russian government’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.” He said that the probe “includes investigating the nature of any links between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was any coordination between the campaign and Russia’s efforts.” Comey described the probe as a counterintelligence investigation that would also include an “assessment of whether any crimes were committed.” He added that he couldn’t reveal any additional information about “what we are doing and whose conduct we are examining.” According to Comey’s prepared testimony for Thursday’s hearing, he informed Trump that as of early April, the president himself was not “personally” under investigation. But various news reports citing unnamed sources have suggested that the FBI is looking into a number of Trump associates and their possible connections to Russian interests.
        .
        Jared Kushner. On May 25, the Washington Post and NBC reported that Kushner—Trump’s son-in-law and one of his closest advisers—had come under scrutiny from the FBI. A day later, the Post reported that according to intercepted Russian communications, Kushner had proposed to the Russian ambassador the establishment of a “secret and secure communications channel between Trump’s transition team and the Kremlin.” Jamie Gorelick, Kushner’s attorney, told the New York Times that Kushner didn’t recall the alleged conversations with the Russian ambassador. The Times cited anonymous sources as saying that Kushner’s actions “are under scrutiny as part of the investigation” but that Kushner “is not currently the subject of a criminal investigation.” Several days after that, the Times reported that FBI investigators were looking into a December meeting between Kushner and Sergey N. Gorkov, an associate of Russian President Vladimir Putin who runs a Russian bank that’s currently the target of US sanctions. The Times cited “current and former officials” who said the meeting “may have been part of an effort by Mr. Kushner to establish a direct line to Mr. Putin outside established diplomatic channels.”
        .
        Paul Manafort. Manafort is a long-time Trump friend who joined his presidential campaign in March 2016. He served as campaign chairman from May to August 2016, when he resigned amid reports that he may have received undisclosed cash payments from former pro-Russian Ukranian President Viktor Yanukovych—an accusation Manafort denied. The FBI, in conjunction with the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, is investigating Manafort’s communications and financial relationships with pro-Russian Ukranian politicians, according to the New York Times. In April, it was reported that Manafort would retroactively register as a foreign agent under the requirements of the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) due to his past work on behalf of Ukraine. It’s unclear whether the FARA registrations are part of any ongoing investigation.
        .
        Federal (and state) investigators are also reportedly examining matters related to Manafort’s banking records real estate deals, but it’s unclear whether that has anything to do with the Trump-Russia investigation. According to the Associated Press, Treasury officials are looking into transactions Manafort conducted using a Cypriot bank—an investigation that pre-dates the Trump/Russia probe. (Cyprus has long been seen as a money-laundering hub.) The AP noted that in statement about the payments, Manafort “characterized them as a normal practice.”
        .
        On May 22, NBC News reported that Manafort had turned over documents that had been requested by the Senate intelligence committee. According to Manafort spokesman Jason Maloni, “Mr. Manafort has not been contacted by any authorities other than the United States Congress and officials responsible for FARA guidance, and he is cooperating with those inquiries.”
        .
        Michael Flynn. The disgraced former national security adviser was fired just 24 days into Trump’s term after the Washington Post reported that Flynn had lied to Vice President Mike Pence when he denied having discussed US sanctions with the Russian ambassador during the presidential transition period. Flynn reportedly made similar statements to FBI investigators, which could potentially be a crime. In his prepared testimony for Thursday’s hearing, Comey states that Trump asked him to “drop any investigation of Flynn in connection with false statements about his conversations with the Russian ambassador”—a request that Comey says he had no intention of honoring.
        .
        The FBI and DOJ are also reportedly investigating payments Flynn received from entities and business interests connected to Russia and Turkey. Flynn was paid $45,000 for attending a 2015 gala and conference for RT, a Russian state media organization. (About $11,000 of that payment went to Flynn’s booking agency.) He also was paid $530,000 last year by a Dutch company to work as a foreign agent for Turkish interests—but he didn’t register as a foreign agent. (Flynn retroactively registered in March, but it is illegal to be a foreign agent without filing with the DOJ.) Prosecutors have reportedly issued grand jury subpoenas to Flynn associates related to this work.
        .
        Flynn has asked Congress to grant him immunity in exchange for cooperating with congressional investigators, but the Senate intelligence committee reportedly turned down that request. Flynn’s lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
        .
        Carter Page. Page, a low-level foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, has been on the FBI’s radar since 2013, when the agency discovered Russian spies were trying to recruit him. In the summer of 2016, according to the Washington Post, the FBI “obtained a secret court order” to monitor Page’s communications “after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia.” Page did not respond to a request for comment, but he has called allegations that he played any role in Russian meddling “completely false and misleading.”
        .
        Roger Stone. Stone is a self-proclaimed political “dirty trickster” who briefly served on Trump’s presidential campaign before becoming an informal adviser. In March, the New York Times reported that Stone had been drawn into the FBI investigation of possible collusion between Trump campaign associates and Russia. Stone claimed in August 2016 to have had back-channel communications with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. On October 1, 2016, he tweeted, “Wednesday@HillaryClinton is done. #Wikileaks.” Six days later, WikiLeaks began publishing Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails—emails that the US intelligence community concluded were stolen by hackers working with the Russian government. Stone didn’t reply to a request for comment, but he has denied participating in any collusion with Russia. “They can call me a dirty trickster,” he said during a May 11 television interview. “But there’s one trick that’s not in my bag: treason.”
        .
        It’s unclear whether Mueller will fold all of these threads into one massive investigation or whether he will decide that some fall outside his purview. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s memo announcing Mueller’s appointment said simply that Mueller’s investigation would include “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump” and “any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation.” On June 2, however, Reuters reported that Mueller would also be taking over the investigation into Flynn’s work on behalf of Turkish interests, suggesting that Mueller may have a fairly expansive view of his authority.
        .
        In addition, as Politico notes, “Mueller’s mandate seems broad enough to capture matters like Trump’s alleged entreaties to Comey to end the inquiry into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.” If Mueller does investigate whether Trump’s interactions with, and subsequent firing of, Comey amounts to obstruction of justice, Rosenstein may have to recuse himself. That’s because Rosenstein, who Mueller now reports to, had conversations with Trump about Comey before the firing was announced, potentially making him a witness in the case.
        .
        Congressional committees
        .
        There are currently multiple probes underway in the US Senate:
        .
        The Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. The intel committee’s investigation was launched in order to provide the public with “a full understanding of the scope of Russian intelligence activities impacting the United States,” according to a January 13 statement from the committee. The scope of that review includes the US intelligence that went into producing the January 6 CIA/NSA/FBI assessment regarding Russian meddling in 2016 election; potential connections between Russia and people associated with US presidential campaigns; and Russian “active measures”—information warfare tactics—used to interfere with US politics. Comey will appear before the committee on Thursday to discuss his interactions with Trump.
        .
        On May 30, ABC News reported that the Senate investigation had expanded to include Michael Cohen, one of Trump’s personal attorneys. “I have been served with a subpoena and intend to fully comply,” Cohen told Mother Jones in a text message. “As to the sum and substance of the subpoena, I believe it is improper to discuss at this time.” Cohen also said that as of June 5, he had not been contacted by the FBI.
        .
        The committee has also issued subpoenas for documents to Manafort, Stone, and Flynn. Manafort and Stone have complied and turned over documents. On May 22, Flynn declined to provide documents, citing his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination; he subsequently agreed to provide some documents to the committee.
        .
        The Senate Judiciary Committee. The Judiciary Committee’s crime and terrorism subcommittee, chaired by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), is carrying out a lower-profile inquiry aimed at shining “a light on Russian activities to undermine democracy.” The subcommittee has asked for a briefing on Flynn’s firing. It has also requested transcripts of Flynn’s intercepted calls with the Russian ambassador and the FBI’s summaries of those calls.
        .
        The Senate Armed Services Committee. The Armed Services Committee has held two hearings on Russian hacking—one in January and one in May. But a committee spokesperson tells Mother Jones that the hearings were part of the committee’s normal oversight work and not part of any distinct investigation.
        .
        The House has its own ongoing investigations:
        .
        The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. The House intel committee is looking at a number of questions: What were the cyber-related activities undertaken by the Russian government to meddle in the election? Did any of those activities include connections between Trump associates and the Russian government? What did the US government do about the Russian active measures, and what should it do going forward?
        .
        However, the Republicans who control the committee seem to be mostly interested in protecting the Trump administration from criticism; they’ve been particularly focused on investigating how information about Flynn’s actions and other aspects of the scandal was leaked to the press. The committee’s chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), was eventually forced to recuse himself from the investigation amid mounting criticism over his coordination with the White House.
        .
        Since Nunes stepped aside, the committee has requested documents and an interview from Michael Caputo, a communications adviser to the Trump campaign who has worked in Russia. Caputo denies participating in any collusion with the Russian government and has accused the House committee of smearing him. He declined to comment to Mother Jones.
        .
        On May 31, the committee issued subpoenas for records from Flynn and Cohen. That same day, Nunes—despite his recusal—issued his own subpoenas for information related to the “unmasking” of Trump associates whose identities appeared in US intelligence reports.
        .
        The House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The House oversight committee, currently chaired by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), is investigating aspects of the scandal. Chaffetz and Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, have said that Flynn may have broken the law by not properly disclosing the payments he received from foreign interests associated with Russia and Turkey.
        .
        After the New York Times revealed that Comey had written a series of memos, including one alleging that Trump had asked him to shut down any FBI investigation of Flynn, Chaffetz quickly announced that he would subpoena those memos. Chaffetz has also asked the the Department of Justice’s inspector general to review Comey’s firing. Chaffetz is set to leave Congress at the end of June, paving the way for a new Republican—likely Rep. Trey Gowdy (S.C.)—to take charge of the committee. Gowdy led the House Benghazi hearings that hounded former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
        .
        The House Judiciary Committee. Democrats on the Judiciary Committee tried to force that committee to conduct its own review of Trump’s “conflicts of interest and alleged ties to Russia,” but Republicans blocked the effort.
        .
        One key question is how Mueller’s investigation will impact all these congressional inquiries. His appointment might complicate Congress’ work, according to Graham, who has argued that since Mueller may be conducting a criminal investigation, key witnesses would be less likely to cooperate with the congressional committees. “I think it pretty well at a minimum limits it, maybe just takes us out of the game,” Graham told reporters. Other lawmakers see it differently. “We have two very different missions,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine), told MSNBC. “[Mueller] will focus on whether or not criminal charges are appropriate. We’re focused on counterintelligence policy. And we can impose sanctions on Russia. The special counsel can’t impose sanctions on Russia. So we still have an extremely important role to play.”
        .
        A key point to keep in mind: Whatever Mueller uncovers as part of his investigation may never become public, unless he secures an indictment—and even then, he would likely only release information directly relevant to the criminal case. The congressional investigative process, on the other hand, is designed to be as transparent as possible, giving the public its best chance to learn about what actually happened during the 2016 presidential election.
        .
        Inspectors general
        .
        Inspectors general in two separate departments are also conducting investigations that potentially relate to the Trump-Russia scandal:
        .
        The Department of Defense: The DOD Inspector General’s office informed Congress that as part of its own investigation into Flynn, it is examining whether he obtained sufficient approval “prior to receiving any emolument from a foreign government.” Presumably, the IG’s probe includes the payments Flynn received from Russian and Turkish interests. Cummings issued a statement on April 27, which included a letter showing that the Defense Intelligence Agency had warned Flynn in October 2014 that taking money from foreign governments could violate the Constitution’s emoluments clause.
        .
        The Department of Justice: As part of an investigation into Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email case, the DOJ’s inspector general is looking into whether anyone within the FBI inappropriately leaked information about the Clinton investigation. Chaffetz has also asked the inspector general to investigate Comey’s firing, though it’s unclear whether that is happening.

      Trump’s Excellent Adventure
      by PITT GRIFFIN on MAY 24, 2017
      .
      Donald Trump took to the road. He didn’t want to. He likes his own bed, predictable foods, and a steady diet of cable news. However, his hosts, after briefings from his handlers, took his fragility into account. There would be plenty of burnt steak and ketchup. Huge projections of his image on walls. And flattering remarks about his electoral college victory. And so off to Saudia Arabia he went.
      .
      There he gave a speech and the media swooned. Expectations for Trump are so low that if he reads someone else’s words without offering a ‘woe is me’ he is called ‘presidential’. It wasn’t all smooth sailing He failed to say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ an incantation conservatives insist must be uttered to render ISIS impotent.
      .
      Significantly his handlers blamed his oversight on fatigue. Which is laughable, as Trump had sold himself as a man of energy. Another lie.
      .
      So be it.
      .
      People hoped that his new sober status might last until the end of his trip. No such luck. In a joint press conference with Bibi Netanyahu, he insisted that, in blabbing secrets to the Russians, “I never mentioned the word or the name Israel”.
      .
      This rash utterance failed thrice. First: He did his host no favors by dragging up that piece of stupidity. Second: Once again he showed that his priority is himself and that America comes second. Third: No one had accused him of mentioning Israel.
      .
      Then Trump visited Yad Vashem, Israel’s official memorial to the victims of the Holocaust, where he signed the Book of Remembrance. Some compared his message to one in a high school yearbook. It certainly lacked the poetry of a previous President.


      Next, there were the Manchester bombings. He said the words that every President says. Offering condolences to the families. Promising unity with the British. And swearing vengeance on ISIS. But not before he gave his explanation for why he would call them not ‘monsters’ but ‘losers’. Thereby consigning them to that amorphous mass of people he doesn’t like.
      .
      Again demonstrating that there is no event so tragic it can penetrate Trump’s rigorous self-regard.
      .
      Which brings us to the hand holding. Or rather Melania’s evident distaste at Donald’s attempt to grab hers. First in Israel, then deplaning in Rome. Rumors swirl that Melania wanted out if Trump failed to win the presidency. Her revulsion at Trump’s small offering lends support to that theory.
      .
      In Rome Trump enjoyed himself by senselessly shafting Sean Spicer. Spicer, a devout Catholic, had looked forward to meeting the Pope. But on the big day, he was denied the honor. He was absent – sent on a coffee run, for all I know. To salt the wound, Trump was there with his Jewish daughter and son-in-law.
      .
      Then there was ‘should you, shouldn’t you’ hair-covering controversy. Trump had once chastised Michelle Obama as a disrespectful hussy for going bareheaded in Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, Melania and Ivanka stood tall in KSA – wearing their hair uncovered.
      .
      However, their devil-may-care dismissal of local custom was inconsistent. When it came to meeting the Pope, the Trump women were clad in black and sporting mantillas.
      .
      Anyone hoping for greater eloquence from Trump will have to wait. After meeting with his eminence Trump gushed, “He is something,” and “We had a fantastic meeting”. He also assured the Pope that, “I won’t forget what you said”. Of course, the snide among us are already questioning if he can remember saying that.
      .

    Breaking: Lawsuit against Trump
    .
    Posted: June 12, 2017/Under: US News/By: fliwatuet
    Donald TrumpLawsuit
    .
    President Trump was hit with a lawsuit Monday accusing him of “flagrantly” thumbing his nose at the constitutional prohibition against accepting payments and benefits from foreign governments since he took office.
    .
    Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh and his D.C. counterpart, Karl Racine, also vowed to wrest from Trump financial and tax records that he has thus far refused to reveal so they can find out whether he is cashing in on the presidency.
    .
    “The suit alleges that President Trump is flagrantly violating the Constitution,” Racine said at a press conference in Washington. “Never in the history of this country have we had a president with these kinds of extensive business entanglements.”
    .
    Racine said he can see Trump International Hotel from his window and “we know exactly what’s going on there.”

    .
    “We know foreign governments are spending there to curry favor with the President of the United States,” Racine said. “The Saudis are already spending hundreds of thousands of dollars at the Trump Hotel.”
    .
    “By not divesting himself from his businesses,” Trump is flouting the constitutional protections against corruption, Racine said.
    .
    Racine also ripped the Republican controlled Congress for giving Trump “a total pass on his businesses.”
    .
    “The president’s conflict of interests threaten our country,” Frosh said. “He continues to take money from foreign governments….He doesn’t seem to understand or care about these violations of the constitution.”
    .
    “this is not a partisan issue.”
    “What we are saying the Constitution is being violated,” said Racine.
    .
    The suit alleges that Trump has violated the Emoluments Clause in the Constitution which states that “no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”
    .
    “President Trump’s continued ownership interest in a global empire, which renders him deeply enmeshed with a legion of foreign and domestic government actors, violates the Constitution and calls into question the rule of law and the integrity of the country’s political system, “ the suit, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, Maryland, states.
    .
    “And irrespective of whether such benefits affect the President’s decision-making or shift his foreign or domestic policy, uncertainty about whether the President is acting in the best interest of the American people, or rather for his own ends or personal enrichment, inflicts lasting harm on our democracy.”
    .
    “The emoluments clauses are a firewall against corruption,” said Frosh. “We understand the president understands the value of walls. This is one thing he can’t climb over and he can’t dig underneath.”
    .
    There was no immediate response from the White House.

    .

    In the past Trump has said he would put their reins of his businesses in the hands of his sons and that nobody cares about his taxes.
    .
    This is the first lawsuit filed by government entities against Trump’s business interests.
    .
    Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a nonprofit activist group, has separately sued Trump in U.S. District Court in Manhattan alleging “countless conflicts of interest” in violation of the Constitution’s so-called emoluments clause.
    .
    In January, Trump promised to track and donate all profits from foreign government travel and commerce at his companies to the U.S. Treasury. But NBC News and MSNBC reported last month that the Trump Organization hasn’t been tracking all possible payments it receives from foreign governments.
    .
    Company policy detailed in a new pamphlet suggests that it is up to foreign governments, not Trump’s hotels, to determine whether foreign governments self-report their business dealings.
    .
    “To attempt to individually track and distinctly attribute certain business-related costs as specifically identifiable to a particular customer group is not practical,” the pamphlet states.

    and you elected this fucker

    It’s interesting that Liberals are all for “women” so long as they are in lock-step with the Liberal ideology. Let a “woman” start thinking for herself and the Liberals will gang up on her and attack her mercilessly.

      what the fuck, dildo?
      it matters not the gender

      when your beloved cock holster led the charge with claiming obama wasnt a real american
      that he was born in kenya

      .
      we should also add that you your fucking self, claim hes a communist, socialist
      …does that now put you in the hot seat?

      Same with blacks. If they leave the plantation they will be called Uncle Toms. The liberals try so hard to keep them on the plantation. They tell them that they are victims and are persecuted by white men.

        I believe that minorities are lied to, told they are “victims” and kept down so that they will continue to vote for Democrats as well as apply for the myriad of Social Programs that Democrats are known for.

      Will…I have never seen such tactics and high disrespects toward women not only in the political field but in education , law and the medical professions under liberal/Demo rule.
      Promotions,equal pay and raises are not in the Liberal/Demo vocabulary.
      Minorities as Brn pointed out ?
      There is no room in the Inn.

        That’s how the Liberal Democrats roll, disrespect ANYONE and ANYTHING that is “stopping them from achieving their goals” while blaming all of the disrespect on the other guy (Republicans, Conservatives & Christians). It’s all part and parcel of the big lie that is Liberalism.
