Shows Pence how to pardon himself [Trump] after impeachment
❝ Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced he signed legislation…to close New York’s double jeopardy legal loophole that protects individuals who are pardoned by a President from being prosecuted at the state level for the same offense. This key reform, which was an Attorney General’s program bill, gives New York prosecutors discretion to pursue prosecution of criminal acts where they have jurisdiction.
❝ “No one is above the law and New York will not turn a blind eye to criminality, no matter who seeks to protect them,” Governor Cuomo said. “The closure of this egregious loophole gives prosecutors the ability to stand up against any abuse of power, and helps ensure that no politically motivated, self-serving action is sanctioned under law. I thank the Attorney General Letitia James for her work to advance this much-needed reform and by signing it into law we are taking another step toward a stronger, fairer and more just Empire State for all.”
❝ The statutory change takes effect immediately and applies to future and past offenses, provided the person has not already been tried or entered a plea.
Trump has done everything but publicly pledge to use his pardon power to allow friends and associates off the hook. Now, the Double Jeopardy jailbreak is closed in New York.
What? You expected Pomp(ous)eo to be uniting Americans? Not bragging on his one true religion, blah, blah, blah? This is what greeted you arriving at the State Department website, this afternoon.

RTFA and weep for the days when some of the hacks we elect to Congress tried to be on the side of ordinary Americans. The intent of tax rates has been completely reversed in my lifetime.
❝ The map the Trumps tweeted inaccurately displays multiple blue counties won by Hillary Clinton as red counties won by Trump…
❝ As numerous analysts have pointed out when Trump has previously touted county-level maps, such maps provide incomplete information. Specifically, they do not distinguish between a county with millions of residents and a county with a few thousand. Clinton earned about 3 million more votes than Trump even though he won far more counties…
❝ The map on Max Galka’s personal blog appears to have been updated. But the version posted on HuffPost was not — and, now, the currently incorrect version is being shared by the President of the United States as a defense against impeachment.
Not that the schmuck-in-chief can read maps, election returns, or any modern economics text. I wouldn’t trust his directions to the nearest bathroom in the White House.
Scumbag Junior, Tom Hicks (head of America First), Giuliani’s busted buddies
❝ Two Soviet-born donors to a pro- Trump fundraising committee who helped Rudy Giuliani’s efforts to investigate Democrat Joe Biden were arrested late Wednesday on criminal charges of violating campaign finance rules, including funneling Russian money into President Trump’s campaign.
Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, two Florida businessmen, have been under investigation by the U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan, and are expected to appear in federal court in Virginia later on Thursday, the people said. Both men were born in former Soviet republics.
❝ House committees issued subpoenas for documents from the two men on Thursday.
❝ Both men…gave $325,000 to the primary pro-Trump super PAC, America First Action, through an LLC called Global Energy Producers…Fruman made additional campaign donations totaling almost $400,000…That would bring the pair’s contributions to about $1 million.
All illegal. All confirming the sort of foreign electioneering for the Scumbag-in-Chief that the Mueller Report outlined. Meanwhile, every bigot’s favorite fake president continues running from the Constitutional effort to impeach his corrupt reign in the White House. With the aid of willing accomplices in the Republican Party. Of course.
UPDATE: Apparently, these creeps figured out (or were warned) that Giuliani’s water-carriers were in danger. They were busted preparing to get on a flight out of the country. One-way tickets in hand.
