Limiting The Scope of Impeachment Makes No Sense When New Crimes Are Revealed Daily

Westlake Legal Group mGWCxkE2DD-mxVgjLgBCyzPsaOhr_iYiIsJfqtQ3s4A Limiting The Scope of Impeachment Makes No Sense When New Crimes Are Revealed Daily r/politics

It actually makes perfect sense. There’s a reason that support for impeachment among the public has surged over the last few weeks. It’s because the Ukraine thing is understandable. It’s simple and clear. The crime is evident even to those who don’t follow politics closely, which is the majority. And that public support is crucial.

Nothing is preventing Congress from following up with new impeachment articles later, and nothing is preventing law enforcement, once Trump is out of office, from following up with indictments.

But in the meantime, a limited approach is smart, and it’s working. Pelosi knows what she’s doing.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan was stepping down and a new acting chief of the agency would be named next week.

McAleenan became the fourth person to lead the agency under Trump in April after the Republican president asked for the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

My name is Gregory Conley and I run the American Vaping Association. Ask me anything about harm reduction, flavors, state bans, moral panics, and more starting at 2 PM Eastern!

Westlake Legal Group vdKm93FQBvyTZw_8GXIifjRIpJeNiTB0tZwlrO-rJ6g My name is Gregory Conley and I run the American Vaping Association. Ask me anything about harm reduction, flavors, state bans, moral panics, and more starting at 2 PM Eastern! r/politics

Hi, I’m Gregory Conley and I currently serve as president of the American Vaping Association, a nonprofit that advocates for sensible policies towards vaping products with the aim of dramatically reducing the United States’ combustible cigarette use.

I have been an advocate for tobacco harm reduction for nearly a decade after managing to quit smoking with vaping while in law school in 2010. Very soon after switching to vaping, I became concerned that government and public health officials were aiming to ban vaping products while leaving deadly combustible cigarettes freely available on the market. That led me to become the volunteer legislative director for three years for the U.S.’ largest organization representing consumers of vaping products, the Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association, which any vaper or harm reduction supporter should join today.

America is in the midst of a moral panic about nicotine vaping products, driven primarily by illnesses and deaths that are increasingly being linked to contaminated illicit THC products. According to recent CDC data, just 13% of lung illness patients claim that they only vaped nicotine products, but most news stories on the illnesses continue to focus on nicotine.

Last month, President Trump announced his support of a move by the Department of Health & Human Services to enact a de facto ban on flavors other than tobacco and perhaps menthol in vaping products. Adding to those headaches, governors of multiple states — including Michigan, Oregon, Massachusetts, and Washington — have banned or are in the process of taking action to institute bans on flavors without the approval of elected legislators. A ban in New York is on hold while a judge reviews legal arguments about whether to enact a more permanent stay to stop enforcement of the ban.

To say the least, the last two months have been busy for us, but I’ll happily be taking a break to answer your burning questions about vaping. Looking forward to it!

Rudy Giuliani’s relationship with arrested men is subject of criminal investigation: Sources

Westlake Legal Group wIPyA9KYMyvVWfzQ_YIiMxuhnuzAsT6ahS0MJ_KF9hU Rudy Giuliani's relationship with arrested men is subject of criminal investigation: Sources r/politics

These guys were all heading to Vienna and went there a lot.

[NYT] We would have to aim for lunch, Giuliani told me, because he was planning to fly to Vienna, Austria, at night. He didn’t offer any details beyond that. Giuliani called me at 6:22 p.m. last night—around the same time that two of his associates, Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, were arrested at Dulles Airport while waiting to board an international flight with one-way tickets. As The Wall Street Journal reported this afternoon, the two men were bound for Vienna. 

But Giuliani, when confirming today that Parnas and Fruman were heading to Vienna on matters “related to their business,” told the Journal that he himself only had plans to meet with them when they returned to Washington. By this logic, Giuliani was also planning to fly to Vienna within roughly 24 hours of his business associates, but do no business with them while all three were there.

Lev Parna was frequently in Vienna lately. You see, a law firm run by Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing {{these fucking two again}}, who were working off the books for Trump via Giuliani, hired him in July to serve as an interpreter related to their representation of Ukrainian oligarch Dmitry Firtash who is fighting extradition to the U.S.

That name might sound familiar- he’s a Ukranian oligarch with deep ties to the** Russian mob, and Paul Manafort’s business partner** and he’s currently under house arrest in Vienna.

Ousted ambassador Marie Yovanovitch tells Congress Trump pressured State Dept. to remove her

Westlake Legal Group nzRb7M4b2rWbDW8mIA4rt9qxGaQXoZKmVRHKg-fZq20 Ousted ambassador Marie Yovanovitch tells Congress Trump pressured State Dept. to remove her r/politics

Her prepared opening remarks found here:

https://games-cdn.washingtonpost.com/notes/prod/default/documents/fd70dea5-724b-4c5a-9de8-da11d7d6e9f8/note/33f88507-cb6c-48d2-b673-139f86a5d98a.pdf#page=1

Particularly powerful portion:

We also believe that, in return, our government will have our backs and protect us if we come under attack from foreign interests. That basic understanding no longer holds true. Today, we see the State Department attacked and hollowed out from within. State Department leadership, with Congress, needs to take action now to defend this great institution, and its thousands of loyal and effective employees. We need to rebuild diplomacy as the first resort to advance America’s interests and the front line of America’s defense. I fear that not doing so will harm our nation’s interest, perhaps irreparably.

That harm will come not just through the inevitable and continuing resignation and loss of many of this nation’s most loyal and talented public servants. It also will come when those diplomats who soldier on and do their best to represent our nation face partners abroad who question whether the ambassador truly speaks for the President and can be counted upon as a reliable partner. The harm will come when private interests circumvent professional diplomats for their own gain, not the public good. The harm will come when bad actors in countries beyond Ukraine see how easy it is to use fiction and innuendo to manipulate our system. In such circumstances, the only interests that will be served are those of our strategic adversaries, like Russia, that spread chaos and attack the institutions and norms that the U.S. helped create and which we have benefited from for the last 75 years.

Megathread: Congress Can Seek President Trump’s Tax Returns, Appeals Court Rules

President Trump’s accounting firm must turn over eight years of his tax returns to a House committee, a federal appeals court ruled on Friday, handing the president a significant defeat in his attempts to block the release of the returns.

The House Reform and Oversight Committee issued a subpoena earlier this year demanding that Mazars USA, the president’s accounting firm, hand over the tax returns. Mr. Trump’s lawyers accused Democrats on the committee of conducting a witch hunt with no legitimate purpose.

A link to the opinion is here.
