Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:
We begin today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* with him digging himself a deeper hole that he’ll never slither out of as he repeatedly lies about his Treasonous actions with delusional distractions, despite his delusions, Donnie is not above the law and he’s going to learn that the hard way, Donnie greeted with chants of ‘Lock Him Up’ when he attended game 5 of the World Series – much to his chagrin, there is already a lot of evidence of Trump’s treason with Ukraine but if you look at the bulk of his other actions there are a multitude of things he should have already been removed from office and put behind bars for and so much more.
The President Has No Defense article from Politico.
Rather than repeatedly lying about his Treasonous actions while trying to defend the indefensible, Trump should admit to what he has done and take responsibility for it – which for him is impossible because he lives in a delusional alternate reality that doesn’t exist and it’s going to end up costing him bigly.
Trump’s Legal Team Is Now Openly Acknowledging That He Is Committing Crimes article from PoliticusUSA.
The desperation of Trump’s ‘Legal’ Team in defending the indefensible is getting ridiculous and it’s going to get he and his enablers in deeper shit:
Trump's lawyers are arguing in court that the president cannot be investigated or stopped even if he is caught in the act of committing a crime – even murder. #ctl #p2 #maddow pic.twitter.com/XjKepVZhIu— PoliticusUSA (@politicususa) October 24, 2019
Trump’s presidency is built on lies. Does he actually believe them? article from The Guardian.
Trump’s entire brand is built on fraud and lies, but his actions regarding Ukraine take stupidity to a whole new level.
Self-Dealing in Ukraine: The Core of the Impeachment Inquiry article from Lawfare Blog.
A look at one of the many laws that Donnie has broken and could be held accountable for despite his ‘legal’ team’s delusional beliefs of his being above the law:
“As the Ukraine story develops, the public focus has remained largely on wrongdoing by the president outside the realm of criminal law, focusing instead on President Trump’s apparent use of his office for personal gain. On one level, this makes sense: Impeachment is only about removal of the president from office, not about criminal prosecution and imprisonment. So the standards and processes for impeachment are different.
But it would be a mistake to ignore the criminal law entirely. Evidence of criminal misconduct, specifically, the federal bribery statute, should influence political judgments about impeachment. After all, “Bribery” is one of the grounds for impeachment specifically enumerated in the Constitution.
Before getting involved in foreign policy work, most of my professional work was in criminal justice. The emerging case should be understood from both of these perspectives. Here, I offer a view of how a public corruption prosecutor might regard the way the case is taking shape. In addition to the role that possible criminal wrongdoing by the president could play in the ongoing impeachment inquiry, evidence about criminal misconduct might also apply, more directly, to the possible investigations of others beyond the president—including Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney.
The core of the impeachment inquiry is about whether Trump engaged in self-dealing, where he used his power in a publicly held enterprise (that is, the government of the United States) for personal gain. Most executives in the private sector know what self-dealing is, and recent headlines about Renault-Nissan or WeWork have reminded them. They also know how most corporate boards would handle a case of self-dealing that involved important programs and sums of money, and in which the CEO had fired executives who interfered with the self-dealing…”
Article II of the Constitution: Trump’s ‘right to do whatever I want?’ Or a roadmap for impeachment? article from USA Today.
Article II of the Constitution gives the president broad powers, but it also defines reasons for impeachment when necessary – but since Trump can’t read he doesn’t fully understand it.Continue reading
