Trump IMPEACHMENT Watch

"The three sources stressed to Reuters that they did not know who initiated the five calls between Flynn, a former three-star Army general who headed the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency under Obama, and Kislyak. Nor did they know the contents of the conversations, and declined to say how they learned of them.

 

One source said there was nothing intrinsically odd or wrong about a Russian diplomat speaking to a member of Trump's team following the U.S. announcement. Moscow, the source added, probably would want to have some sense of what Trump's team thought about the measures.

 

The other two sources, however, said the timing of the calls raised a question about whether Flynn had given Kislyak any assurances to soothe Russian anger over the U.S. moves.

 

If that were the case, it would have raised a possible entanglement with the Logan Act. The 1799 law bars unauthorized U.S. citizens from negotiating with foreign governments with which the United States has disputes. It is aimed at preventing the undermining of official U.S. government positions."

"President-elect Donald Trump's meetings with CEOs seeking federal approval for major mergers are raising red flags for ethics lawyers concerned about the possible erosion of a firewall between the incoming White House and regulators reviewing those billion-dollar deals.

 

Trump met this past week with the heads of German chemical company Bayer and seed and herbicide giant Monsanto, who made their case for their $57 billion merger. The deal would likely need to be approved by Trump's choices to lead antitrust enforcement at the Justice Department. On Thursday, Trump sat down to discuss jobs with the chief executive of AT&T, which is trying to acquire Time Warner.

 

Presidents typically keep their distance from such reviews, so as not to appear to be exerting political influence on a regulatory process intended to evaluate the impact a merger could have on competition and consumers. Trump's private sessions suggest he may be less worried with appearing to be close to pending deals that require government approval.

 

"While it's true the Department of Justice is under the executive branch, it's not appropriate for the president to make that regulatory decision — and certainly not for political considerations," said Bruce Green, a law school professor at Fordham University who specializes in ethics."

"President-elect Donald Trump's says he thinks NATO is "obsolete," but that view stands in stark contrast to his own picks for Defense Secretary and Secretary of State.

 

Both Ret. Gen. James Mattis and former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson provided robust support for the alliance during their respective Senate confirmation hearings.
 
"If we did not have NATO today, we would need to create it," Mattis said Thursday, adding that it "is vital to our national interests, and it's vital to the security of the United States."
 
Trump's comments in an interview come days after some 4,000 US troops arrived in Poland in an effort to bolster ties with NATO allies and send a clear message to Russia.
 
The clear gulf between Trump's characterization of the alliance and that of his Cabinet nominees could set-up potential policy clashes with the White House.
 
The diverging views were quickly noticed by officials in the US and Europe."

"Americans divide evenly on whether the incoming Trump administration is complying with ethics laws. And while a bare majority in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll accepts President-elect Donald Trump’s business ownership plan, three-quarters say he should release his tax returns.

 

Contrary to his comment that the American public doesn’t care about the issue, four in 10 of those polled say they care a lot” about Trump releasing his tax records."

"At a news conference last week, now-President Donald Trump* said he and his daughter, Ivanka, had signed paperwork relinquishing control of all Trump-branded companies. Next to him were stacks of papers in manila envelopes — documents he said transferred “complete and total control” of his businesses to his two sons and another longtime employee.

 

Sheri Dillon, the Trump attorney who presented the plan, said that Trumphas relinquished leadership and management of the Trump Organization.” Everything would be placed in a family trust by Jan. 20, she said.

 

That hasnt happened."

"The American ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, issued a stark warning on Friday to allies and rivals abroad, saying in her first remarks at the headquarters of the world body that the Trump administration would hold to account those who do not back the United States.

 

Youre going to see a change in the way we do business,” Ms. Haley said. “Our goal with the administration is to show value at the U.N., and the way well show value is to show our strength, show our voice, have the backs of our allies and make sure our allies have our back as well.”

 

“For those who dont have our back,” she added, were taking names; we will make points to respond to that accordingly.”

This thread is proof they have been trying to impeach him since he was elected 

 

The plot against him started when he rode that escalator to announce his candidacy

Secret Service = $650/Night At Trumps Properties

February 7, 2020

 

"Trumps company charges the Secret Service for the rooms agents use while protecting him at his luxury properties — billing U.S. taxpayers at rates as high as $650 per night, according to federal records and people who have seen receipts.

 

Those charges, compiled here for the first time, show that Trump has an unprecedented — and largely hiddenbusiness relationship with his own government. When Trump visits his clubs in Palm Beach, Fla., and Bedminster, N.J., the service needs space to post guards and store equipment.

 

Trumps company says it charges only minimal fees. But, Secret Service records do not show that.

 

At Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, the Secret Service was charged the $650 rate dozens of times in 2017, and a different rate, $396.15, dozens more times in 2018, according to documents from Trump’s visits."

Haha!!

It's funny to me that you guys are hanging so tight to this imaginary point.

President Trump is no more "impeached" to day than Bill Clinton is
What they both are is "acquitted".

Winning His War On American Institutions

March 3, 2020

 

"When Donald Trump came into office, there was a sense that he would be outmatched by the vast government he had just inherited.

 

The new president was impetuous, bottomlessly ignorant, almost chemically inattentive, while the bureaucrats were seasoned, shrewd, protective of themselves and their institutions. They knew where the levers of power lay and how to use them or prevent the president from doing so. Trumps White House was chaotic and vicious, unlike anything in American history, but it didnt really matter as long as the adults were there to wait out the president’s impulses and deflect his worst ideas and discreetly pocket destructive orders lying around on his desk.

 

After three years, the adults have all left the room—saying just about nothing on their way out to alert the country to the peril—while Trump is still there.

 

The adults were too sophisticated to see Trumps special political talents—his instinct for every adversary’s weakness, his fanatical devotion to himself, his knack for imposing his will, his sheer staying power. They also failed to appreciate the advanced decay of the Republican Party, which by 2016 was far gone in a nihilistic pursuit of power at all costs. They didn’t grasp the readiness of large numbers of Americans to accept, even relish, Trumps contempt for democratic norms and basic decency. It took the arrival of such a leader to reveal how many things that had always seemed engraved in monumental stone turned out to depend on those flimsy norms, and how much the norms depended on public opinion. Their vanishing exposed the real power of the presidency. Legal precedent could be deleted with a keystroke; law enforcement’s independence from the White House was optional; the separation of powers turned out to be a gentlemans agreement; transparent lies were more potent than solid facts. None of this was clear to the political class until Trump became president."
