Trump’s new claim comparing himself to a ‘king’ sets off alarms among legal experts

The Trump administration is sending elite units, the equivalent of Border Patrol SWAT teams, to sanctuary cities to help ICE round up undocumented immigrants.

CREW Requests Treasury Records on Jessie Liu Nomination Withdrawal
On February 11, 2020, President Trump withdrew his nomination for Jessie Liu to serve as the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes. Previously, Liu had served as the U.S. attorney for DC and supervised the case against Roger Stone. On February 12 during the Senate Finance Committee hearing, Treasury Secretary Mnuchin testified that he was informed about the Liu decision two days ago. Senator Sherrod Brown then asked why she was withdrawn; Mnuchin responded only by saying “nominations are at the President’s direction.” The same day, CNN reported that the decision to pull Liu’s nomination was directly linked to her oversight of Stone’s case.
This is what institutional corruption looks like.

America has socialism for the rich, harsh capitalism for everyone else.
2018 talk the mayor delivered at the International Monetary Fund may only contribute to that scrutiny.
In the video, which appears on the IMF’s YouTube channel and shows Bloomberg in conversation with Christine Lagarde, then-head of the IMF, the former mayor criticizes minimum-wage laws and defends the practice of fingerprinting food-stamp recipients, which he enforced during his time in office.
Warren is the only candidate hammering Trump’s criminality and that’s why the media can’t deal with her because running her speeches involves confronting how we have all allowed organized crime to swallow us all alive, we were so naïve to think we were immune to the mafia. We really just don’t talk enough about how @ewarren created an entire federal agency for the purpose of holding corporations accountable AS A LAW PROFESSOR WITH NO POLITICAL POWER TO SPEAK OF! IMAGINE WHAT SHE COULD DO AS PRESIDENT!
