Pelosi Statement on Trump Administration Refusal to Comply with House Subpoenas

Westlake Legal Group 12CiNzoWZBcxDCWBFpv2Klsnw5IEUL9_lLKOkq4INjM Pelosi Statement on Trump Administration Refusal to Comply with House Subpoenas r/politics

You will be held accountable

How? I’m one-hundred-percent certain they will not use physical force as the final last resort, and unfortunately it’s only physical force that will actually acheive anything. No words, no censure, no high-minded speeches or sternly-worded letters will do anything to make Trump and his cronies actually fear the law.

In fact, every time something is said or written, anytime a federal judge says something crushing, if there isn’t any actual physical followup the President & the Whitehouse crew are actually emboldened. Every time this happens they just feel like pushing the boundaries even more.

People have to go to jail to make Trump actually fear the law. He has to worry that he will be next. Without that threat looming over his head, statements like this from Pelosi are worse than useless.

Megathread: White House Says It Will Not Cooperate With House Impeachment Inquiry

The White House said on Tuesday it would refuse to cooperate with a “baseless, unconstitutional” congressional impeachment inquiry, setting Republican President Donald Trump on a collision course with the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives.

In the White House’s letter to congressional Democrats, President Trump’s lawyers say the President and his administration won’t cooperate in an ongoing impeachment inquiry, arguing the proceedings amount to an illegitimate effort to overturn the 2016 election results.

The full letter can be found here.

Megathread: Senate Intel Report Finds Kremlin Directed Russian Social Media Meddling In 2016

The Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday released its report on Russian social media interference efforts during the 2016 elections, with the panel finding that Russian actors were directed by the Kremlin to help President Trump win the election.

The report is the second volume to be released as part of the committee’s investigation into Russian interference efforts in the lead-up to the 2016 elections, with its findings mirroring those of former special counsel Robert Mueller in his own report released earlier this year.

I’m Heather Boushey, president and CEO of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, and author of the forthcoming book, Unbound: How Inequality Constricts Our Economy and What We Can Do About It. AMA!

Westlake Legal Group QZDbUeod7MsckB5wQ5pIziz1mVqd6nu77z--k-Dwihk I’m Heather Boushey, president and CEO of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, and author of the forthcoming book, Unbound: How Inequality Constricts Our Economy and What We Can Do About It. AMA! r/politics

Hey Heather. I love this. This is what I notice and observe as well. Inequality since birth puts citizens at a disadvantage to develop their full entrepreneurship DNA as well as political will and the enforcement of the laws against discrimination.

Lately however I notice that labor has been abused, suppressed and even undervalued and manipulated so wages do not increase with the value that it merits and deserves and it is here that the economy gets constricted from freely growing and the cycle supporting higher wages consistently.

Leaderships of corporations aggregate manipulate and even have republicans elected to suppress any sort of wage increase to the minimum wage. Productivity charts, profits charts and even CEO pay increases all contradict that there is no money etc etc.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/lincoln-congress-speech-_b_1127058 Even Lincoln gave a speech regarding labor before capital.

The other big equation to the way we calculate GDP is adding the value of labor or talent that makes up these organizations of enterprise that increase overall in value based on the number of sales, profits, management etc but little value is given and reflected in our GDP is the growth of human talent (ideas, entrepreneurship, problem solving efficiencies) When a business is about to be sold, calculations are made to come up with a value number (price).

Labor is viewed as a cost that is why it is being suppressed from increasing. A house cost money too, it is an investment yet it is a mature market because it was well established and planned by governements and private sector to reflect our values that based on demand in a certain area price increases based on that value of demand.

My proposal is to change labor into investment that grows and that should be reflected in companies overall value and worth, this will stop people from manipulating what someone’s value is worth and it will be reflected in the earnings and spending in the economy.

I would love to keep in touch, please add me on linkedin https://www.linkedin.com/in/livewebengine/

Megathread: White House Blocks US Ambassador Gordon Sondland From Testifying Before Congress

Westlake Legal Group fDwlGrDBl1cLTk-GkdjvDgGbI0SwK2DIZOVLXj6eBEg Megathread: White House Blocks US Ambassador Gordon Sondland From Testifying Before Congress r/politics

The White House has blocked the US ambassador to the European Union from speaking to Congress after he was deposed by House committees investigating the president amid an impeachment inquiry.

Gordon Sondland did not appear for his closed-door meeting with Congress on Tuesday morning, as his attorney Robert Luskin said he had no choice following the White House orders.

“He is a sitting ambassador and employee of State and is required to follow their direction,” the attorney reportedly said.

Mr Sondland became enveloped in the president’s impeachment scandal after text messages and a whistleblower complaint revealed he was a witness to allegations against Mr Trump after his July phone call with Ukraine.

The text messages released by House Democrats show Mr Sondland working with another one of Mr Trump’s envoys to get Ukraine to agree to investigate any potential interference in the 2016 US election and of the energy company that appointed former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter to its board.
