    Trump Broke The Law To Protect The Saudi Royal Family

    According to recent reports, the Trump administration has been breaking the law repeatedly for well over the past month over the death of reporter Jamal Khashoggi. Here’s what happened, on February 20th a month after they were supposed to deliver it to Congress, the Trump administration finally handed over classified information regarding Khashoggi’s murder and the involvement of Saudi crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. They were a month late on this. The Democrats had issued requests. They had sent subpoenas for information, and the Trump administration repeatedly ignored it. They were given deadlines, legal deadlines that they had to meet, that they failed to meet continuously breaking the law as…

    Mississippi Law Enforcement Practices Lead To Disabled Man’s Death

    A federal appeals court ruled that a Mississippi police officer who had driven and left a disabled man at the County line wasn’t liable for the man’s death after he was struck and killed by a passing vehicle. Very complicated case, but it’s pretty straight forward in what the police officer did wrong. I have legal journalist Mollye Barrows with me to talk about it. Lay out the facts of this case. I mean, I read the first three or four paragraphs of the, of the case and it’s, it’s clue, it’s clear to me due process, equal protection, all of these constitutional issues come into mind but the court,…

    Trump Has Suspended The Law To Get His Border Wall Built Faster

    To say that Donald Trump has no respect for the rule of law, I think would probably be a gross understatement, right? We all know that Donald Trump has no respect for the rule of law, but each day we’re kind of finding out a little more and more about how little regard he has for it. Take for example, this story that came out earlier this week. Apparently Donald Trump has decided that in order to appease his rabid base, he’s got to get his border wall built as quickly as possible so that he can have the 450 miles that he’s promised constructed before the 2020 election. But…

    Wrestler Issues Ominous Warning To Jim Jordan About More Information About To Leak

    Over the weekend, former Ohio State University wrestler Adam DiSabato, appeared on MSNBC’s AM Joy with Joy Reid to talk about his revelation this past week during a state legislature hearing in the state of Ohio where he mentioned that, yes, Republican representative Jim Jordan, who was an assistant coach at the wrestling team during the time that all the abuse was taking place at the hands of Dr. Richard Strauss. He said that yes, Jim Jordan was part of the cover-up and on the 4th of July, this, two years ago actually, Jordan called him crying and begging him to retract his brother’s statement saying that Jordan was involved…

    Right Wing Pastor Brags About Trump’s Assault On The Rule Of Law

    Earlier this month Focus on the Family. James Dobson joined a monthly prayer call with intercessors for America where Dobson actually praised Donald Trump’s efforts to destroy the judicial branch of the federal government. Although of course, Dobson doesn’t think it’s destroying the judicial branch. He thinks it’s restoring it to some kind of former glory that I guess Dobson thinks that it has during this phone call. Dobson specifically praise the quote, godly people behind the scenes who were feeding Donald Trump these nominees, and we know who those people are. It’s people like Mitch McConnell, people like Lindsey Graham, the Federalist Society and other right wing think tanks…

    Alabama Cop Threatens To Blow Up Nancy Pelosi

    I want everybody to remember the name, Jeff Buckles. Jeff Buckles is an assistant Sheriff’s deputy in the tiny little town of Geraldine, Alabama, population 900. And Mr. Buckles, well, sorry, officer Buckles was watching Donald Trump’s state of the union on Tuesday of this week and afterwards, he saw Nancy Pelosi rip up her copy of Donald Trump’s speech and officer Buckles lost it. Officer Buckles took to Facebook and wrote the following. He said, Pelosi just ripped up his speech. And by the way, he spelled speech, S P E A C H. Officer Buckle’s, not the brightest bulb out there, but dang it, he’s serving the people…

    Consumers Need More Advocates But Corporations Are Poaching Young Lawyers

    America’s facing a crisis right now that I don’t think many people in this country actually understand, and that is that law schools aren’t necessarily teaching law students one, how to actually go into a courtroom and try a case, but two, the importance of handling cases on behalf of American consumers. A lot of law school graduates would rather go work for corporate law, or even tax law or patent law, little bit more relaxed, little it easier, and the money’s a lot more guaranteed. But we need skilled trial lawyers here in the United States, and Mike Papantonio, co-host of Ring of Fire, former Past President of the…

    Nearly 1,600 Scientists And Science Advocates Have Left Government Jobs Under Trump

    Since the beginning of the Trump Administration, it’s been clear that there’s been no adults in the room at least when we’re talking about the West Wing itself. There’s nobody inside of that White House that’s really trying to rein Donald Trump in in spite of what that New York Times op-ed says about aides coming in and switching papers on his desk and all that. Nobody’s really doing a good job preventing the worst things of this administration from becoming reality. But at one time, there were adults in the federal government, and unfortunately, those adults are now leaving because they cannot stand the thought of working another day…

    Jared Kushner Hit With New Legal Complaint

    Earlier this week, Jared Kushner appeared on CNN in his official capacity as a member of the Trump administration, a senior advisor and assistant to the president of the United States. I believe that is his official title and during this segment where he was representing the administration, he went forth and advocated for the reelection of Donald Trump repeatedly throughout the segment about a day and a half after this segment aired, the group citizens for responsibility and ethics in Washington crew filed an immediate Hatch Act violation complaint against Jared Kushner as it is very clearly a violation of the Hatch Act for any government official to act…

    Trump’s Own Government Confirms He Broke The Law

    For months and months, ever since the word impeachment first became something that was real, Republicans had been insisting that Donald Trump did absolutely nothing wrong. And if he did do something even slightly wrong, it probably wasn’t an impeachable offense because it wasn’t technically a crime. Well, according to yesterday’s, a government accountability office report, Donald Trump did in fact commit a crime. And that crime was a violation of the 1974 impoundment control act, which clearly States the president cannot withhold congressionally approved funds. Not for any reason. Doesn’t matter if it was purely based on something that this country needed as Trump claims it was, it doesn’t…
