The Line on the Chumph Not Surviving His Term

The line currently at the bookmakers on the Chumph being impeached before the end of his first term is 7/4. Pretty heavy odds with only 24 hours in office.

I am not sure that Impeachment is a legal necessity. I believe (but may be wrong), that the Election can be effectively annuled on a Court finding that he indeed accepted illegal monies and assistance from the Russians. This is all new territory here. But such an apprach would effectively make everything since the “election” null and void.

As Donald Trump Becomes President, Bookies Bet Big on Impeachment

“Completely one-way traffic in betting.”

 

As Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the next president of the United States today, bookmakers are currently offering odds on whether Trump—the least popular incoming president in four decades—will get impeached or be forced to resign. Some even predict that he won’t survive the first six months in office.

That’s according to the online betting site Paddy Power, which has placed the odds of Trump failing to complete his first term at 7 to 4. The odds of Trump getting impeached in the first six months stand at 4 to 1. Other offerings include bets on the inauguration itself and the future of his marriage to Melania Trump.

To be sure, political pundits are still reeling from one of the worst-predicted election results in recent memory, and the mechanisms to impeach a president are far more difficult than one might hope. Yet, Matt Shaddick, who oversees the popular betting site, told the Independent that there has been “completely one-way traffic” in betting trends against Trump’s survival in office.

Inspector General to Investigate Comey and FBI on Election

DOJ Watchdog To Review Pre-Election Conduct Of FBI, Other Justice Officials

The Justice Department’s watchdog has launched a sweeping review of conduct by the FBI director and other department officials before the presidential election, following calls from Congress and members of the public.

Top advisers to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton have blamed FBI Director James Comey, in part, for her loss in November. Now, federal investigators say they will examine whether public statements by Comey in July, October and November 2016 ran afoul of policies that caution officials not to influence the outcome of an election and to avoid making derogatory comments about people who haven’t been formally charged with wrongdoing.

Comey has previously told friends and employees that he had few good choices in the investigation into Clinton’s handling of classified information on her private email server.

In a statement Thursday, Comey said, “I am grateful to the Department of Justice’s IG for taking on this review. He is professional and independent and the FBI will cooperate fully with him and his office. I hope very much he is able to share his conclusions and observations with the public because everyone will benefit from thoughtful evaluation and transparency regarding this matter.”

Inspector General Michael Horowitz said he would not “substitute” his judgment on the declination to prosecute Clinton for that of prosecutors and the FBI. And he said the review could expand based on what his investigators encounter along the way.

Among the issues the IG will scrutinize:

  • Allegations that Justice Department and FBI staffers improperly leaked details about investigations before the election.
  • Claims that some “underlying investigative decisions were based on improper considerations.”
  • Allegations that the deputy director of the FBI and the chief congressional liaison at the Justice Department should have recused themselves from the Clinton investigation.
  • How the FBI release of information about an old investigation of Bill Clinton’s last-minute presidential pardons happened only days before the election and how an FBI Twitter account came to publicize the documents.

Former Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon called the inspector general’s announcement “highly encouraging and to be expected given Director Comey’s drastic deviation from Justice Department protocol.”

Fallon said the probe is “utterly necessary in order to take the first step to restore the FBI’s reputation as a non-partisan institution.”

ANOTHER Trump Delegate Indicted for Guns and Child Porn!

The Drumph may well lose the Primary because all his Delegates are in prison!

A vote is like a rifle; its usefulness depends upon the character of the user.  -Theodore Roosevelt

Maryland Trump delegate indicted after ATF agents find explosives, machine gun and child porn

A delegate for Donald Trump from Charles County, Maryland was indicted this week on charges related to illegal transport of explosives, possession of a machine gun and child pornography.

In a press release on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Justice said that ATF agents began investigating 30-year-old Caleb Andrew Bailey after postal inspectors discovered a package with .50 caliber cartridges with M48A1 incendiary projectiles and other ammunition with explosive projectiles.

On May 5, law enforcement executed a search warrant “at adjoining properties associated with Bailey, including his residence, and seized a machine gun,” according to the statement.

Court documents allege that Bailey also used a minor to produce child pornography, and that child pornography was found in his possession.

Bailey faces over 50 years in prison if found guilty of all charges.

The Maryland Board of Election currently lists Bailey as a delegate for Donald Trump.

Drumphazoid Faces Jail Over Drumph Flag

I wonder if he would be willing to post that voter card rip up on YouTube for verification purposes…

Guy who won’t take down Trump flag faces jail

“I’m not a football fan, I’m not a sports fan, but I’m surely a Donald Trump fan,” Joe Hornick tells NBC 4. The New Jersey man has been flying a Trump flag outside his home for months and he says he will go to jail rather than obey an ordinance in the town of West Long Branch against flying political flags more than 30 days before an election. New Jersey holds its primary on June 7, meaning it will be weeks before Hornick can legally fly the “Make America Great Again” banner. He has already been ticketed, and people have ripped down his flag at least five times. “I have a warehouse on alert, and I’ll put up a flag every time they tear one down,” Hornick says.

Hornick—who says that if Trump loses, he’ll rip up his registration card and never vote again—could get 90 days’ jail time or a $2,000 fine if he doesn’t take down the flag. Hornick says that he has a constitutional right to fly the flag, and the American Civil Liberties Union is supporting him, reports NY 101.5. According to Eugene Volokhat the Washington Post, Hornick is right: Banning political signs or placing similar restrictions on the content of signs violates the First Amendment, Volokh writes, though the city would be within its rights to apply content-neutral restrictions that applied to all signs. (Trump had a rough night Saturday.)

Trump Scarves Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

Kind of makes you wonder about those Made in China “Make America Great Again” fake baseball caps….

Chinese-manufactured Trump scarves just recalled for putting 20,000 Americans at risk for burns

A Federal agency recalled around 20,000 scarves made under the Ivanka Trump brand on Wednesday for failing to meet flammability standards, the Houston Chronicle reported.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s decision affects Trump’s Brushstroke Oblong and Beach Wave scarves, both of which are made entirely of rayon.

The scarves, which bear her name, “do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk,” the agency said.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the scarves are also made in China. Trump’s father, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, has been criticized for following similar business practices, saying it is “impossible” to manufacture clothes in the US because China and other nations like Mexico devalue their currency.

The commission stated that customers will be entitled to a refund following the recall. The scarves sell for anywhere between $12 and $68.

Minnesota Cop Encourages Public to Run Over BLM Protesters

Amazing!

“Don’t slow down for any of these idiots who try and block the street.”

A St. Paul, Minnesota police officer has been placed on administrative leave after allegedly telling drivers to run over Black Lives Matter protesters who planned to block traffic as part of a march on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Around 1 a.m. on Saturday, a Facebook user named “JM Roth” posted a comment on a Pioneer Press article about the scheduled protest that said: “Run them over. Keep traffic flowing and don’t slow down for any of these idiots who try and block the street.” The comment then suggested how drivers could legally justify hitting protesters with their cars:

Andrew Henderson, a local activist who maintains the Minnesota Cop Block Facebook page, first noted and reported the comment, which has since been deleted, to the St. Paul Police Department. In phone conversations he recorded anduploaded to YouTube, Henderson told Saint Paul Police Department officials that the “JM Roth” account belonged to Sergeant Jeffrey M. Rothecker. Henderson said Rothecker had admitted in previous comments that he was “JM Roth.”

St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Police Chief Thomas Smith have denounced the comment and announced that an investigation into the matter is underway. Senior Commander Shari Gray, the head of the department’s internal affairs unit, also met with Henderson on Sunday, according to the Pioneer Press.

“There is no room in the Saint Paul Police Department for employees who threaten members of the public,” Coleman said in a statement released on Monday. “If the allegation is true, we will take the strongest possible action allowed under law.”

The St. Paul Police Federation, the union for officers, is representing Rothecker,according to the Star Tribune.

The news comes one year after motorist Jeffrey P. Rice struck a teenage girl who was protesting outside a Minneapolis police station. The girl was part of a November 2014 demonstration that took place after a Ferguson, Missouri grand jury declined to indict the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown. The girl suffered a minor leg injury. Last October, Rice, who is from St. Paul, pleaded guilty to a charge for failing to yield to a pedestrian. He was fined $575 and ordered to attend a driver’s education course….More Here
