No matter if you’re a dishwasher or a digital whizbang. If your performance was as crap as our Fake President, you would not get your contract extended…or re-elected.
…and there is lots to have fun with in this cartoon.
In defending President Donald Trump against impeachment, the president’s legal team has had to perform legal gymnastics to try and justify Trump’s innocence, using tactics from stonewalling to outright lies…In a memo released prior to Trump’s Senate trial, the president’s lawyers turned to a new line of reasoning in their defense, claiming that “abuse of power,” one of the articles of impeachment the House voted in favor of, is not actually an impeachable offense because it’s not a real crime…
The New York Times points out that in a memo written in the summer of 2018 when he was still a private attorney, now-U.S. Attorney General William Barr argued the exact opposite of what the Trump team is now claiming in their defense of the president. In the memo…Barr argues that the president is shielded from criminal penalties and should not be held accountable by a special prosecutor. Instead, the president is held responsible by Congress and their impeachment powers—not just for criminal charges, but for “any abuses of discretion.” “Under the Framers’ plan, the determination whether the President is making decisions based on ‘improper’ motives or whether he is ‘faithfully’ discharging his responsibilities is left to the People, through the election process, and the Congress, through the Impeachment process,” Barr wrote. “The fact that President is answerable for any abuses of discretion and is ultimately subject to the judgment of Congress through the impeachment process means that the President is not the judge in his own cause.”
I’m not clear which sort of hypocrisy is more corrupt. Just taking your paycheck and vomiting out required paragraphs of legal puke. Or practicing phony law to prop up criminal incompetents because he is your Fuehrer.
❝ A New York state court has ordered President Trump to personally pay $2 million to settle a lawsuit over the misuse of funds from the now-defunct Trump Foundation to further his political ambitions…
❝ The award is a part of the settlement in New York Attorney General Letitia James’ lawsuit against Mr. Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump. The lawsuit, filed in June 2018, claimed the foundation’s directors skirted New York’s charity laws, allowing the president to use foundation funds for his personal, business and political interests, including coordinating with his 2016 bid for the White House. The Trump Foundation announced it was shutting down last year, amid allegations that the money was used for Mr. Trump’s personal benefit…
❝ The court order comes after another big loss for Mr. Trump, after a federal appeals court in New York ruled Monday that the president’s tax returns can be turned over to state criminal investigators.
Throw the crook in jail. Throw away the key!
