    Trump (currently) has enough money to pay lawyers to fight it.

    Maybeeee...
    Currently, his and his family's legal expenses are being covered by the 2020 campaign fund.

    And, further to the NT Times interview, Sessions has told staff at DoJ that he will not be resigning, leading to consternation among Trump's aides, apparently.

  • Hard News: Our own fake news,

    In the latest outrage from the Chump-in-Chief, Trump Wouldn’t Have Picked Sessions If He Had Known Sessions Would Recuse Himself on Russia on Slate.


    [Edit]
    The actual source is a New York Times interview.
    He's also threatened Mueller if he goes after the Trump family finances.

    In other news, Sessions greenlights police to seize cash, property from people suspected of crimes but not charged, which, as my friend Doug van Belle pointed out on FB:

    They really don't think these things through, do they?
    Technically, with the revival of this programme and an honest belief that a crime has been committed, any FBI agent can now seize all of the Trump family's assets.

    I'm worried about the oncoming popcorn shortage, myself.

  • Hard News: Barclay and arrogance, in reply to Dennis Frank,

    I suspect the PCA supported the police decision on the basis that there was no available evidence to charge the MP with committing the crime. That's only credible if they both decided his confession could not be used in court as evidence. If their legal advisors gave them this opinion, fair enough eh?

    At the time that the investigation was discontinued with, Barclay had not confessed anything and was emphatically denying the charges. That is the investigation that the IPCA looked at, not the current investigation. There's still a question of why they did not execute search warrants to determine whether or not there was any evidence, as they did in the Bradley Ambrose case.

    To finance anything like a functional livable ubi, a lot of companies would need to pay a heap more tax.

    How exactly is this magical mythical amount to be instantly calculated?

    As a victim of the system, I have no doubt that MSD have a formula ready at hand. Bastids.
