Watch Mueller’s fmr. Chief of Staff shred Trump aide Roger Stone
Quote:

Special Counsel Mueller is continuing to gather evidence on whether one of Trump’s longest serving advisers teamed up with any foreign actors in 2016, zeroing in on whether Roger Stone or other Trump associates were in contact with Wikileaks, according to new reports. Former Chief of Staff for Mueller tells Ari Melber there is “no one who is better at ignoring the noise” than Mueller and responds to Roger Stone’s claim that Mueller is trying to personally destroy him.

The FBI omitted Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos' denial of Russian collusion in their FISA warrant application.

Not only that, it turns out he never spoke to a Russian. It was an FBI agent. No wonder they gave him 14 days. So he wouldn't APPEAL THE CONVICTION.

Idiots were running our government.

link to a respected source so we can see what you omitted....

you like trump are a compulsive serial liar.

If trump has nothing to hide then have him testify under oath about all things and anything.

and finally lets get a non life long republican doing the investigation with unlimited budget. Like the two on Clinton for was it 6 years with an ultra-partisan religious right wing wacko with no experience and Starr was being paid at least a million a year under the table by the tobacco lobby and did not have to do a single billable hour. . Clinton testified under oath. and not one grand jury indictment, just a starr Kavanaugh ultra partsan hit piece.

Why Trump's appointment of Whitaker is 'unconstitutional'

Quote:

Professor Neal Katyal along with Kellyanne Conway's husband, George Conway, have penned a new NYT opinion column on Matthew Whitaker, 'Trump's Appointment of the Acting Attorney General Is Unconstitutional.' Katyal joins Morning Joe to discuss.

Listen: Mueller's new boss should recuse, according to himself

Quote:

Former Department of Justice official, David Laufman, who was overseeing the Russia probe from summer of 2016, until his resignation in February 2018 joins Ari Melber. Laufman tells Ari Melber that Trump’s pick to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions was likely “handpicked for the job” because he “gave a commitment” to Trump that he would not recuse himself. Laufman says that without the proper ethics review, Whitaker could trigger an “ethics civil war” within the Department of Justice.

The head of the crime family has found his loyalist.


Quote:

The acting attorney general of the United States is a crackpot.

Matthew G. Whitaker, installed in the job by President Trump to replace Jeff Sessions, was asked in 2014, during an ill-fated run in the Republican senatorial primary in Iowa, about the worst decisions in the Supreme Court’s history. Whitaker’s answer, to an Iowa blog called Caffeinated Thoughts, was chilling.

“There are so many,” he replied. “I would start with the idea of Marbury v. Madison. That’s probably a good place to start and the way it’s looked at the Supreme Court as the final arbiter of constitutional issues. We’ll move forward from there. All New Deal cases that were expansive of the federal government. Those would be bad. Then all the way up to the Affordable Care Act and the individual mandate.”

Reasonable people can differ over the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act. Maybe there’s some space to debate the New Deal-era cases that cemented the authority of the regulatory state. But Marbury? This is lunacy. For any lawyer — certainly for one now at the helm of the Justice Department — to disagree with Marbury is like a physicist denouncing the laws of gravity.

Decided in 1803, at the dawn of the new republic, Marbury v. Madison is the foundational case of American constitutional law. It represents Chief Justice John Marshall’s declaration that the Supreme Court possesses the ultimate power to interpret the Constitution and determine the legitimacy of acts of Congress.

In Marshall’s famous words, “it is emphatically the duty of the judicial department to say what the law is.” The untested new Constitution provided that the Supreme Court possessed the “judicial Power of the United States,” but it did not define what that power entailed.


“With one judgment . . . Marshall would chisel judicial review into the American system,” Cliff Sloan and David McKean explain in their book, “The Great Decision.” The ruling, “asserting clearly and unequivocally that the Supreme Court did indeed possess the power to strike down an Act of Congress as unconstitutional . . . laid the foundation for the American rule of law.”


This is not a controversial position, at least in mainstream legal thought. On occasion, Supreme Court nominees, including Antonin Scalia and Neil M. Gorsuch, declined to state their agreement with Marbury. But this coyness is not because they differ with the ruling; rather, it is because they fear stepping onto the slippery slope of assessing past cases.

More commonly, Marbury is the uncontested subject of lavish judicial praise. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. endorsed it during his confirmation hearings, and expanded on that view in a 2006 C-SPAN interview. Marshall’s decision meant “we have the courts to tell what [the Constitution] means and what’s binding on other branches,” Roberts said, “and that important insight into how the Constitution works has been, I think, the secret to its success.”

But if you think, as Whitaker seems to, that Roberts is too much of a squish (“he’s not a good person to point to when it comes to actually just calling balls and strikes in practice,” Whitaker said of Roberts in the 2014 interview), consider Roberts’s predecessor as chief justice, William H. Rehnquist. In his book on the Constitution, Rehnquist described Marbury as “the linchpin of our constitutional law.”


Or consider Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh’s comments during his confirmation hearings, describing Marbury as among the “four greatest moments in Supreme Court history.” Kavanaugh offered a more extended defense of Marbury in a 2014 Notre Dame Law Review article. “It’s my submission,” Kavanaugh wrote, “that Marbury v. Madison continues to mark the proper approach for constitutional interpretation.”

Yet we seem to have, as the nation’s chief law enforcement officer, a man who begs to differ. Is this still his position? If so, how does that view — that the court in Marbury was too assertive in exercising its power — square with Whitaker’s simultaneous beef that the court was inadequately assertive in striking down laws during the later New Deal era and when dealing with the Affordable Care Act?

That’s not the only troubling question about Whitaker. During a 2014 Senate debate sponsored by a conservative Christian organization, he said that in helping confirm judges, “I’d like to see things like their worldview, what informs them. Are they people of faith? Do they have a biblical view of justice? — which I think is very important.”


At that point, the moderator interjected: “Levitical or New Testament?”

“New Testament,” Whitaker affirmed. “And what I know is as long as they have that worldview, that they’ll be a good judge. And if they have a secular worldview, then I’m going to be very concerned about how they judge.”

Marbury was wrong. Religious tests for judges. If you thought the big worry about Whitaker was how he would handle special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, that might be just the beginning.
