Tramp’s 'ethics lawyer' Resigning...LMAO!!!


Recommended Posts

I’ll concede it’s an obvious joke: upon learning that the chief ethics lawyer in Donald Trump’s White House is resigning, everyone asked, “Donald Trump had a chief ethics lawyer?”

 

As it turns out, yes, though his office is apparently now empty. Politico reported yesterday:

After almost a year in the White House counsel’s office tacklial disclosure issues, James Schultz resigned last week and is returning to private practice at the Philadelphia-base law firm where he previously worked, Cozen O’Connor.

 

Schultz insists his exit is unrelated to any of those myriad controversies, but simply triggered by a desire to get back to private law work and back to Philadelphia, where his family has remained.

Former Government Ethics Director Shaub: Trump setting wrong tone

I’m not in a position to know whether or not the official line on his resignation is true. Schultz told Politico these are “typically year-to-about-18-months-type positions,” and for whatever reason, he didn’t make it a year.

 

Regardless, while this may sound like another joke, I honestly would love to learn more about what Schultz did all day. Because no matter what one thinks of this president, Donald J. Trump has been at the center of enough ethics controversies to choke a special counsel.

 

Questions about the president’s approach to the Emoluments Clause and Hatch Act have become ethical hornets’ nests, but that’s really just the start. Trump’s hotel, his golf resorts, his fake “university,” his refusals to disclose, his refusals to divest – if Schultz used his post to warn the president about maintaining the highest ethical standards, it must have been frustrating for him to spend much of 2017 being ignored.

This is what Trump meant by draining the swamp--that anybody with ethics wouldn't want to stick around.

 

Ethics in the Tramps administration? Its like facts to the repigs...  Anyone surprised?

 

Yet Jimmy Carter was forced by the cons to sell his small family peanut farm to avoid conflicts of interest--go figure.

But Jimmy Carter lived by an illusion so when threatened with it doesn't look right he gave away the family farm for symbolic values to being honoring reality instead of understandin the real moment. Plus he was suppied for the rest of his life with an income and benefits regular citizens pay for to beled down paths of pretending tomorrow is a physical destination outside the moment here.

According to Politico, Schultz’s decision to return to private law was made on his own and was not influenced by any controversies surrounding President Trump and his administration. Schultz told Politico he is returning to private practice and his family in Philadelphia.

Benson13, what are ethics used for socially?  make sure the citizen of reality is towing the social narrative with everything they say and do socially and in private.

The job of an ethics lawyer would be primarily to assure that the client was not breaking the law or perhaps the spirit of the law.

Trump has clearly had a lot more ethics issues than any president, starting with his failure to put his business into a blind trust.

What’s TRULY SHOCKING is that Jamie Gorelick is STILL Ivanka and Jared’s *ethics* lawyer and that she recently won an ethics award … 

 

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/ivanka-and-jareds-ethics-lawyer-somehow-wins-ethics_us_59f89fd9e4b0b7f0915f61f2

 

Because she’s one of the most corrupt lawyers around (even someone at the Huffington Post has problems with her).

 

Plus, she's been closely allied with the Clintons and Obama for decades.   

 

It bothers me because Gorelick worked in Clinton’s Whitehouse and is the person who created the Chinese Walls that the 9/11 Commission concluded led to 9/11 being successful.  The walls were designed to prevent government intelligence, security and police agencies from connecting the dots in Chinagate.  Gorelick had to know their purpose.   She was covering up illegalities in Chinagate.   But they also kept the various agencies that were supposed to protect us from terrorism from talking, hence 9/11’s success.   

 

The real travesty is that Jamie Gorelick was on the 9/11 Commission, instead of being placed under oath and grilled about her role in 9/11.  In that capacity, she failed to share her “wall memo” with anyone on the Commission ... until Attorney General John Ashcroft was blasted for the “wall” while he was testifying before the 9/11 Commission.  He then revealed that she created the walls.  “Never Mind”, was the response from the 9/11 Commission, proving it’s dishonesty.

 

After leaving the Clinton administration in 1997, Gorelick went to work for Fannie May, where as Vice Chairman, she helped bankrupt Fannie May and eventually destroy the economy of the US in 2008 … while lining her pockets with tens of millions of dollars in salary and bonuses.  She was involved in falsifying financial transactions that helped the company meet earnings targets for 1998, which triggered bonuses for top executives (she was one and got nearly $780,000).  In other words, Gorelick is a criminal.   

 

And despite her key role in 9/11 and the Great Recession, she was then placed on Obama's short list to head the FBI.   She probably didn’t get the slot only because she had supported Hillary in the 2008 primary.  When Hillary decided to run for President in 2016, Gorelick, of course, again supported her … by, for example, attacking Comey in the press regarding emailgate.  Indeed she led that effort.  And as a reward, Gorelick was on the short list to become Hillary’s Attorney General had she won.   I suspect for keeping her mouth shut about the bodies.  

 

Gorelick is a corrupt party-line Democrat, so I was stunned to hear that Ivanka was using her as an “ethics” advisor and attorney!   And even more stunned to learn that she still is their attorney.   Until Gorelick is gone, I think Ivanka and Jared should be kept beyond arms length from Trump.   Indeed, I wouldn’t be surprised is Gorelick was a mole who had a hand in creating the bogus Russian Collusion allegation against Trump.   After all, up until July, she had the lead role in representing Kushner in the Russian investigation.   Talk about the fox in the hen house.

It boils down to this:

Jimmy Carter, a decent man: ethical

Donald Trump, a conman: unethical
