Westlake Legal Group Gi7nmdL48O50Ob8MJSIg25flNLd_7U4sOXIVdanKcPU Trump raised Biden with Xi in June call housed in highly-secure server r/politics

Holy shit. This is it. THIS is the bombshell we’ve been waiting for to take the rump down.

Why? Because, up to this point, the rump has been screaming about corruption specifically Ukraine (aka Bidens).

TRUMP SUPPORTERS What say you to this? :::

The fact that he sought dirt on other political opponents; this screams all sorts of dirty rotten scoundrel.

Public perception will TURN on this shit.

Reps Lieu And Rice Call For Bribery Investigation Into NRA Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre

Westlake Legal Group D7EgVCU1KdDMhTeF8QDrUyWts2lr1DiZUO_hUUxJnhQ Reps Lieu And Rice Call For Bribery Investigation Into NRA Chief Executive Wayne LaPierre r/politics

Here are 10 impeachable offenses he has committed.

  1. ⁠Obstruction of justice•

The trail of evidence starts with Trump’s attempt to get Comey to drop an investigation into National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn. • When he refused, Trump fired James Comey, the FBI director responsible for overseeing the investigation into Trump’s relationship with Russia during the 2016 election. • Trump made two more attempts at stopping the investigation by trying (unsuccessfully) to fire Robert Mueller, Comey’s predecessor.

2. ⁠Profiting from the Presidency•

The Constitution’s Foreign Emoluments Clause prohibits the president from accepting personal benefits from any foreign government or official. • Trump has retained his ownership interests in his family business while he is in office. • Thus, every time a foreign official stays at a Trump hotel, or a foreign government approves a new Trump Organization project, or grants a trademark, Trump is in violation of the Constitution. • For example: shortly after he was sworn into office, the Chinese government • gave preliminary approval to 38 trademarks of Trump’s name. Then, in June, China approved nine Donald Trump trademarks they had previously rejected. • And every time he goes to golf at a Trump property, he funnels taxpayer money into his family business—violating the Domestic Emoluments Clause.

3. ⁠Collusion•

In the middle of the 2016 election, Trump’s son was invited to meet with a Russian national regarding “information that would incriminate Hillary and…would be very useful to” Donald Trump • The Russian, Natalia Veselnitskaya, had ties to high-ranking Kremlin officials. • Trump Jr. took the meeting. He said, “I love it,” when told Veselnitskaya may have had dirt on Clinton. Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner also attended. • Federal law prohibits campaigns from soliciting anything of value from a foreign national. • After journalists broke this story, Trump personally dictated a public statement on behalf of his son that lied about the intended purpose of the meeting. • This relationship between the Trump team and the Russian national raises questions of whether the campaign aided a hostile foreign power’s active operation against the United States.

4. ⁠Advocating public and police violence•

When Trump gave cover to the neo-Nazis who rioted in Charlottesville and murdered a protester, he violated his obligation to protect the citizenry against domestic violence. • When Trump encouraged police officers to rough up people they have under arrest, he violated his obligation to oversee faithful execution of the laws. • When Trump shared anti-Muslim content on Twitter, he violated his obligation to uphold equal protection of the laws. • This represents a pattern of disregard for some of the president’s basic responsibilities as defined by the Constitution.

5. ⁠Abuse of power•

President Trump’s decision to pardon Joe Arpaio amounted to an abuse of the pardon power that revealed his indifference to individual rights and equal protections. • Joe Arpaio was convicted for contempt of court after ignoring a court order that he stop detaining and searching people based on the color of their skin, which constitutes a violation of their rights. • Pardoning this conviction goes against the Fifth Amendment, which allows the judiciary to issue and enforce injunctions against government officials who flout individual rights.

6. ⁠Engaging in reckless conduct•

High-ranking administration officials involved in foreign affairs have signaled that Trump does not have the capacity to make informed decisions in the event of a military crisis. • Even worse, his actions could spark a needless confrontation stemming from misunderstanding or miscalculation. • We see this in full effect every time Trump tweets or makes a public statement taunting and threatening the North Korean regime. • The president may be the “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States,” but that does not give him the right to behave in reckless or wanton ways that put millions of lives at risk. • If he is unfit to perform his duties as Commander in Chief, he cannot be allowed to remain in the position.

7. ⁠Persecuting political opponents•

President Trump has repeatedly pressured the Department of Justice and the FBI to investigate and prosecute political adversaries like Hillary Clinton. • This is not based in concerns with national security, law enforcement, or any other function of his office—it is an attempted power play, plain and simple. • There’s no question that this constitutes an outrageous and inappropriate abuse of executive branch powers and serves as clear grounds for impeachment.

8. ⁠Attacking the free press•

President Trump has repeatedly attacked the concept of an independent press. • He’s called critical coverage “fake news” and journalists “the enemy of the American people,” made threats to change libel laws and revoke licenses, and his battles with CNN led him to try to interfere in the AT&T/Time Warner merger. • This demonstrates his unwillingness to respect and uphold the Constitution, and disdain for the crucial foundations to our free society.

9. ⁠Violating immigrants rights to due process

Enforcing its new “zero tolerance” policy, the Trump administration separated as many as 3,000 immigrant children from their parents at the southern border. This policy was meant to deter families from attempting to cross the border. The children and their families have been held in internment camps and cages with what lawyers call “inhumane conditions” Due to negligence, the Trump administration has no plan to reunite all children with their families, even deporting some parents while their children remain detained.

10. Violating campaign finance laws

• Donald Trump knew disclosure of his extramarital affairs with Stephanie Clifford (A.K.A. Stormy Daniels) and Karen McDougal could hurt his chances at winning the 2016 election. • At the direction of Trump, Michael Cohen and American Media, Inc. (AMI), the publisher of the National Enquirer bought the rights to the women’s stories and forced them to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements to prevent them from going public. • Cohen admitted to making illegal, hush-money payments to hide Trump’s affairs in the fall of 2016, just weeks before the election. • Federal prosecutors, and Trump’s co-conspirators Cohen and AMI, all say that Cohen made the payments at Trump’s direction, “in concert with the campaign,” and with the intention of helping Trump win. • Trump is unindicted co-conspirator because he directed Cohen to “cause an unlawful corporate contribution” and an “excessive campaign contribution” by paying the two women hush money with the intent to influence the election.

Elizabeth Warren’s campaign sent dinner to Bernie Sanders staffers after his heart procedure

Westlake Legal Group kQrKvAtT0OXGLLzVBVVEHdm00BstFJvdxWKZOZFK6DM Elizabeth Warren’s campaign sent dinner to Bernie Sanders staffers after his heart procedure r/politics

The weird thing is this is a reason rural Americans tend to view Democrats as elites. They see politeness, decency, and the ability to speak a coherent sentence as suspicious.

Conversely, they see rudeness*, meanness, and less than refined speaking patterns as trustworthy.

There was that recent study that showed people evaluate speaking in politically correct terms as a sign of weakness.

Shit’s fucked up.

*Rudeness is generally only acceptable to conservatives when done from powerful people to less powerful people. So, it’s okay for CEOs to call women “nasty”, but never okay for them to dish it back.

Hillary Clinton: ‘Impeachable offenses committed on national television still count’

Westlake Legal Group p_mwSQ54Q_jx2usXSR6cXnsO6Fbufa-QJZFLzDxTNTA Hillary Clinton: 'Impeachable offenses committed on national television still count' r/politics

It is illegal for any person

PERSON! PERSON! Anyone will be jailed and fucked over for life because of this. Including anyone in a position of power. The next executive needs to bite the bullet and relieve the Executive branch of a shit town of power.

DOJ needs to be brought under Congressional control.

We need to get rid of Executive Actions or at least provide way stricter parameters for them.

We need to include the Minority and Majority leaders in congress for approval of Nuclear Strikes.

We need to be able to subpoena an executive

We need to give congress a better path to appoint cabinet members. The cabinet needs opposition voices. Hell, that would benefit everyone.

All of these changes should come into effect in 2024

Trump’s video taken off Twitter after band Nickelback complains

Westlake Legal Group iFjhbkDEc1quCzPu6_y1CPBGRcf4T9pOXwyYEMyVejQ Trump's video taken off Twitter after band Nickelback complains r/politics

Twitter has repeatedly complained that they can not enforce their own rules since it would mean banning a LOT of politicians. This would mean more problems from them, they would take part in the political process…. since ALL OF THEM are right wing. So, they can only enact the most clear cases, copyright being pretty much the only one… When POTUS spews violent rhetoric, Twitter can’t do ANYTHING. This allows his supporters also to use language and spread content that violates twitter rules.

One side in this fight, fights dirty. Same is with Youtube: they have had to implement almost totalitarian, blind rule that demonetizes pretty much all content that for ex revisionist also share. To block holocaust denialism being spread by their own algorithms, they also demonetize channels that speak about the actual history.

So. stop pointing the finger solely on social media companies. They are often totally helpless. Note: i do not say they are perfect, far from it. Just that not EVERYTHING is completely their fault, it is us, the users that are the biggest problem. Pretty much all of the social media sites have rules that can stop this but they can’t do it. They have to invent rules that are “fair and balanced” and treats both sides the same. One side just lies constantly and that causes a lot of collateral damage.
