$10 Million to Impeach The Chumph!

Gettin’ hot in here! Larry Flynt, owner of Hustler Magazine and occasional political gadfly, has offered a $10 million reward for information resulting in the Impeachment of the Chumph.

Last time he did this during Bill CLinton’s impeachment, it wound up in ending the careers of about a half dozen Republicans, including Neut Gingrich and Bob Livingstone who were sucessive Speakers of the House who turned out to have sexual peccadilloes of their own.

This kind of money even boy toy Putin may finally release the “Pee Tape”!

Larry Flynt is offering $10 million for info resulting in Trump’s impeachment

Larry Flynt, the founder and publisher of Hustler magazine is offering a $10 million  reward for information leading to the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Fox Anchor Liz Claman, who broke the story, tweeted an image of an advert for the money. Flynt himself subsequently retweeted the story. Hustler had not replied to a request for comment at the time of publication.

The advert says: “Buried in Trump’s top-secret tax returns or in other records from his far-flung investments there may be a smoking gun.”

“The attempt to impeach Donald Trump will strike many as a sour grapes plot by Democrats to overturn a legitimate election,” it continues.

“But there is a strong case to be made that the last election was illegitimate in many ways—and that after nine tumultuous months in office, Trump has proven he’s dangerously unfit to exercise the extreme power accrued by our new ‘unitary executive.’”

The full page advertisement says that Trump “only” won the election thanks to the “quirks” of the electoral college, which it calls “a real anachronism today.” It accused Republicans of a “scorched-earth spree of gerrymandering” after the 2010 census.

The advert says that Trump’s missteps include “inciting violent civil strife with his racial dog whistling,” “gross nepotism,” and “sabotaging” the Paris accord on climate change.

“Most worrisome is that, long before a climate change apocalypse strikes, Trump might trigger a nuclear world war,” it adds.

“Impeachment would be a messy, contentious affair,” the ad concedes, “but the alternative—three more years of destabilizing dysfunction—is worse.”

Flynt also offered a similar reward in 1998, during the impeachment trial of former President Bill Clinton. He has also shared clips from Hustler criticizing Trump, calling him a “buffoon” and a “narcissist,” and a piece calling on the Democrats to be “more than the party of no.”

Impeaching Trump – Lawers Lay Out First Case

Image result for Trump jail

Jail to the Chumph.

Should Republicans stop blocking the Chumph Impeachment, or the 2018 Election, whichever comes first – there appear to be at least 4 Cases, if not 5 upon which the Chumph will be prosecuted.

The easiest one of those to make as a primary cause and case for impeachment, is Obstruction of Justice. The other crimes are hidden behind requiring information which is still classified, information from grand jury testimony, and information not available to the public gathered by Robert Mueller’s prosecutors.

There appears to be evidence upon which to charge the Chumph with these crimes –

  1. Money Laundering,
  2. Criminal Conspiracy
  3. Treason
  4. Obstruction of Justice
  5. and possibly, a number of cases of Malfeasance in Office

It is unknown at this point what evidence, or what charges (if any) Mueller will pursue. But the case for impeachment, based on obstruction of justice has been laid out just using publically available information. The guys who did this are heavyweights –

Barry H. Berke is co-chair of the litigation department at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP
(Kramer Levin) and a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He has represented
public officials, professionals and other clients in matters involving all aspects of white-collar
crime, including obstruction of justice. Noah Bookbinder is the Executive Director of Citizens
for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Previously, Noah has served as Chief
Counsel for Criminal Justice for the United States Senate Judiciary Committee and as a
corruption prosecutor in the United States Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section.
Ambassador (ret.) Norman L. Eisen, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, was the chief
White House ethics lawyer from 2009 to 2011 and before that, defended obstruction and other
criminal cases for almost two decades in a D.C. law firm specializing in white-collar matters. He
is the chair and co-founder of CREW.

From their introduction of a case developed for Brookings Institute –

There are significant questions as to whether President Trump obstructed justice. We do not yet know all the relevant facts, and any final determination must await further investigation, including by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But the public record contains substantial evidence that President Trump attempted to impede the investigations of Michael Flynn and Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, including by firing FBI Director James Comey. There is also a question as to whether President Trump conspired to obstruct justice with senior members of his administration although the public facts regarding conspiracy are less well developed.Attempts to stop an investigation represent a common form of obstruction. Demanding the loyalty of an individual involved in an investigation, requesting that individual’s help to end the investigation, and then ultimately firing that person to accomplish that goal are the type of acts that have frequently resulted in obstruction convictions, as we detail. In addition, to the extent conduct could be characterized as threatening, intimidating, or corruptly persuading witnesses, that too
may provide additional grounds for obstruction charges. While those defending the president may claim that expressing a “hope” that an investigation will end is too vague to constitute obstruction, we show that such language is sufficient to do so. In that regard, it is material that former FBI Director James Comey interpreted the president’s “hope” that he would drop the investigation into Flynn as an instruction to drop the case. That Comey ignored that instruction is beside the point under applicable law. We also note that potentially misleading conduct and possible cover-up attempts could serve as further evidence of obstruction. Here, such actions may include fabricating an initial justification for firing Comey, directing Donald Trump Jr.’s inaccurate statements about the purpose of his meeting with a Russian lawyer during the president’s campaign, tweeting that Comey “better hope there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations,” despite having
“no idea” whether such tapes existed, and repeatedly denouncing the validity of the investigations…

“There Will Be Indictments” – Republican Former Clinton Prosecutor

Hopefully Mueller can get this thing moving soon. The Creep in Chief’s guilt never really has been an issue since the Russians stole the election for him, and if the collusion was any plainer it would be a TV Show. If we had a Congress which actually respected the Constitution and nation’s laws – they would have impeached him, tried him, convicted his…And hung him by now.

I am hoping Republicans pay dearly for attempting to cover up Chumph’s crimes starting in the 2018 Election, and his co-conspirators in the House and Senate are taken down and sent to jail as well.

Starr, being a Republican Loyalist tries to put lipstick on this pig by saying it’s only the Chumph’s cronies.

In the word’s of Gill Scott Heron’s son “H20Gate Blues” – If Nixon Knew Ag-Knew” referencing the indicted and convicted Vice President under Nixon.

Ex-Clinton prosecutor Ken Starr expects charges in Russia probe: ‘There will, in fact, be indictments’

The former independent counsel who prompted the impeachment of President Bill Clinton forecast criminal indictments in the Trump-Russia probe.

Former U.S. solicitor general Ken Starr told CNN’s Michael Smerconish that he believes multiple associates of President Donald Trump would be indicted in the Russia probe conducted by special counsel Robert Mueller, reported Mediaite.

“Given what we do know, especially given what happened this summer with respect to the FBI’s intrusion into Paul Manafort’s condominium, in light of the revelations that we’ve seen about General (Mike) Flynn, I have a sense that there will, in fact, be indictments,” Starr said.

Starr said he would expect some of those associates to accept plea agreements in the case, and he also believes some Russians will also be indicted.

“What I find very interesting, very briefly,” Starr said, “is in light of the information that is now coming out with respect to Russian attempts to influence both the national election and 21 different states, what I expect to see is serious consideration of indicting one or more foreign nationals.”

The former independent counsel also expects Mueller will ask the president to testify under oath in the case.

“It will probably be by invitation,” Starr said. “There will be every effort, I’m confident of Bob Mueller, h’s a complete professional with total integrity, to respect the dignity of the office of the president.”

Haaretz (Israel’s Leading Paper) Calls the Chumph a “Racist Moron”

Seems a lot of folks around the world recognize the Chumph is a racist asshole.

Israeli newspaper Haaretz asks if Trump is a ‘moron’ or ‘just an obnoxious racist’ in searing essay

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz published a scathing op-ed piece on Thursday asking whether President Donald Trump is — as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson allegedly said — a “f*cking moron” or whether he’s “just racist and obnoxious.”

Columnist Chemi Shalev noted — like MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson — that in his Wednesday press conference, Tillerson declined to deny that he’d ever uttered the epithet to describe the president.

“Stupidity is one of the more easily accessible and widespread explanations for Trump’s behavior,” Shalev said. “It’s true that Trump has claimed in the past that his IQ is much higher than that of Obama or of comedian John Stewart, but in that case, he’s doing an excellent job of concealing his intelligence, as his visit this week to Puerto Rico showed.”

“(R)ather than trying to cheer up Puerto Ricans, as he did in Texas, or console them, as he would later do in Las Vegas,” wrote Shalev, “Trump insulted the island’s residents on their own home turf. He told them they should be grateful they weren’t hit with a ‘real catastrophe’ like Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans in 2005. He didn’t stop complaining about the drain of Puerto Rican recovery on the federal budget, which he didn’t even mention in Texas or Florida. And to cap it all off, Trump was filmed tossing out paper towels to his audience in a scene deemed by one broadcaster as ‘the least presidential ever.’”

Shalev pointed out that many Trump critics argue that stupidity shouldn’t necessarily be blamed when “obnoxious racism” is more likely the culprit.

“Prejudice and racial stereotypes are such a prominent feature of his personality, they maintain, that he just can’t keep them under lock,” he wrote, then noted that the president has provided plenty of evidence to bolster those critics’ assessment.

“He has described himself as ‘the least racist person ever,’ but since he launched his presidential run by describing Mexican immigrants as rapists and murderers,” he wrote, “Trump has described Puerto Ricans as lazy, Muslims as wannabe terrorists, African-Americans as thugs, Jews as proficient with money and women as inferior sexual objects. It’s only among neo-Nazis, apparently, that Trump has found ‘some fine people.’”

Some Trump supporters argue that the reality TV game show host turned president is “crazy like a fox,” and using chaos and confusion to always have the upper hand. The problem with that assertion, said Shalev, is that Trump’s loose cannon nature all too often ends up undermining his administration.

“The U.S. president has shot himself in the foot so regularly that it is only natural to assume he may not be the sharpest pencil in the box,” he said. From the Comey firing to the bevy of loud, indiscreet attorneys hired by the White House to Trump’s “ham-handed” attempt to explain away his eldest son’s meeting with Russian operatives, the president can’t — as one conservative pundit said — stop tripping over his own “you-know-what.”

Shalev discussed Josh Marshall’s theory of “Trump’s razor” — a satirical take on “Occam’s razor,” the theory that the simplest explanation is almost always correct. “Trump’s razor” states that when faced with multiple explanations for a Trump phenomenon, “the stupidest is always the right one.”

“But even if we assume that Trump is far from stupid, and definitely not a ‘moron,’” Shalev concluded, “most people would agree that both his election and his presidency are an insult to America’s intelligence, as well as the world’s.”

Disaster as Measured by Body Count

First we get the POS Chumph discussion in Puerto Rico about a “real disaster” –

There are likely hundreds dead. Unfortunately the process used to certify death in Puerto Rico is held up by damage due to the storm.

Miami Herald:

On Wednesday, the Puerto Rico government, maintained that the official number of deaths as a result of the catastrophe was 16. But the Center for Investigative Journalism (CPI, for its initials in Spanish) has confirmed that there are dozens of hurricane-related deaths and the number could rise to the hundreds.

The dead are at the hospital morgues, which are at capacity and in remote places where the government has yet to go. In many cases, families are unaware of the deaths. The government’s Demographic Registry is responsible for certifying deaths so bodies can be removed by funeral homes, many of which are  not operating because of lack of resources. The agency  began to certify some of the dead Monday, Health Secretary Rafael Rodríguez-Mercado confirmed in an interview.

Public Safety Secretary Héctor Pesquera told the CPI that the names of the dead because of the hurricane will not be revealed until relatives can be notified. The continuing lack of communication has kept many people from knowing the whereabouts of their families. Since the storm’s immediate aftermath, many people have gone daily to radio stations so  the on-air personalities can announce the names of family members with whom they have been unable to communicate.

Trump contrasts Puerto Rico death toll to ‘a real catastrophe like Katrina’

President Donald Trump told Puerto Rican officials Tuesday they should be “very proud” that hundreds of people haven’t died after Hurricane Maria as they did in “a real catastrophe like Katrina.”

“Every death is a horror,” Trump said, “but if you look at a real catastrophe like Katrina and you look at the tremendous — hundreds and hundreds of people that died — and you look at what happened here with, really, a storm that was just totally overpowering … no one has ever seen anything like this.”
“What is your death count?” he asked as he turned to Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló. “17?”
“16,” Rosselló answered.
“16 people certified,” Trump said. “Sixteen people versus in the thousands. You can be very proud of all of your people and all of our people working together. Sixteen versus literally thousands of people. You can be very proud. Everybody watching can really be very proud of what’s taken place in Puerto Rico.”

Should Minority Government Employees Sue the Chumph for Discrimination?

Interesting proposal here, just covering black government employees. I think is could also include minimally Hispanic workers.

Image result for racial discrimination lawsuit

Why Black Federal Workers Should Sue Donald Trump. Seriously.

The case law on “hostile work environment” defines unlawful harassment very broadly. If Trump were a private-sector CEO, someone would have sued already. Ergo…

Apart from an oddball collection of misfits that includes reality TV star Omarosa Manigault, former Wisconsin sheriff David Clarke, and neurosurgeon Dr. Ben CarsonDonald Trump, for most of his adult life, has displayed an open hostility and contempt toward African Americans.

From the time in the ’70s when Trump was sued by the Department of Justicefor refusing to rent property to black Americans and other minorities to his egregious call for New York to reinstate the death penalty for the so-called Central Park Five to his Obama birtherism right on up to last week’s shameful NFL/Stephen Curry Twitter tirade, he’s been pretty up front with us.

For Trump’s coterie of black “friends” who stand to benefit professionally and financially from their relationship with him, the president’s overt racism is something they can apparently overlook.

But what about the people who aren’t his friends? As president, Trump is the boss of approximately 2.1 million federal employees, 18.1 percent of whom are African Americans. To these 300,000 plus employees, the president’s bigotry is not only hurtful. It creates a hostile work environment.

Hear me out. Federal statutes that prohibit employment discrimination in the workplace define discrimination to include conduct that creates a work environment that is intimidating, hostile or offensive to reasonable people. Types of offensive conduct that has been found actionable by courts include offensive jokes, slurs, epithets, name calling, threats, intimidation, ridicule or mockery, and insults.

Additionally, courts have held that the harasser can be the victim’s supervisor or a supervisor in another area. The victim does not have to be the person harassed, but can be anyone affected by the offensive conduct. And the unlawful harassment may occur without economic injury to, or discharge of, the victim.

Under even the most restrictive reading of federal anti-discrimination laws, Trump’s rhetoric and antics arguably rise to the level of severe and pervasive harassment deemed unlawful by well-established federal case law.

So let’s look at some of Trump’s more recent hostile comments toward African Americans, during the campaign and since he’s been in office.

In September 2015, Trump slammed the Black Lives Matter movement on Fox’s The O’Reilly Factor, casting the group as rowdy agitators. “I think they’re trouble. I think they’re looking for trouble,” Trump told O’Reilly.

Two months later, after his supporters physically attacked a Black Lives Matter protestors at a campaign rally in Alabama, Trump suggested the following day that the attackers were justified. “Maybe [the protester] should have been roughed up,” Trump mused. “It was absolutely disgusting what he was doing.”

Then as president, at a press conference in August 2017, Trump responded to questions about the violence that occurred during protests in Charlottesville by suggesting a moral equivalency between anti-fascist demonstrators on the left, and Nazis and members of the Klan—a group notoriously hostile to African Americans.

“I do think there’s blame on both sides. You look at both sides,” Trump said. “You have some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.”

Next, Trump suggested the removal of Confederate statues—monuments honoring men who fought to preserve slavery—were an attack on American culture. “Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments,” Trump said.

And just last week, at another rally in Alabama to support the failing campaign of Senator Luther Strange, Trump doubled down on his comments denouncing African American football players by suggesting an “us” against “them” divide.

“You know what’s hurting the game more than that?” Trump asked an overwhelming white audience. “When people like yourselves turn on television and you see those people taking the knee when they are playing our great national anthem.”

The president’s remarks are the gravamen of a hostile work environment as defined by relevant case law. His insults, threats and demeaning comments don’t just permeate the airwaves and social media sites. They infect the federal workplace and spread like a malignant cancer. These harassing statements dehumanize African Americans and create a two-tier workplace: one where black workers are deemed inferior to whites. They weaken morale and productivity; cause depression; and erode cohesiveness which is critical to all workplaces.

If you still think this is fanciful, consider what would be happening if Trump were the CEO of a corporation. Right now, lawyers would be advising shareholders to brace for a barrage of workplace discrimination suits as they prepared his separation papers in order to protect their employees and eliminate the hostility. Although Trump doesn’t answer to shareholders, he is not above the law.

Ordinarily these employees could seek relief from the civil rights division of the Department of Justice. In this instance, given that its head, Jeff Sessions, has been reluctant to criticize Trump and has a horrific record on civil rights matters, African Americans are in a hellacious bind.

Black federal employees may have no choice but to seek redress from the courts where they may find favor, at least from the handful of federal judges who rejected Trump’s discriminatory Muslim ban.
