Posted on 03/20/2017 2:36:35 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has reportedly hired a prosecutor to examine the activities of the Trump administration.
Schneiderman has tapped public-corruption expert Howard McMaster from the office of former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, The Wall Street Journal reported. Bharara was fired by Trump last week even though he was in the middle of a number of investigations, including one allegedly involving stock trades by Trumps Health And Human Services Secretary Tom Price.
Schneiderman spokesman Eric Soufer confirmed McMasters hiring, and told the Journal that McMaster will work on a range of civil and criminal investigations ... including public corruption, and potentially litigation against the Trump administration.
Last month, at a meeting of the National Association of Attorneys General, Schneiderman revealed that his office was discussing strategies and doing research to determine what kind of action could be taken to address concerns about Trumps potential conflicts of interest, and possible violations of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, which prohibits anyone holding a federal office from accepting payments from foreign entities....

Sessions should investigate Schneiderman and his abuse of power.
The Democrats want war.
Maybe he will also investigate the Clinton Foundation....hahahaha
Release the pizzagate pedophile arrests of Schumer and others.
Gee, and I bet he was just as earnest about pursuing Presidential corruption during the Obama years (do I really need to indicate the sarc?).
Investigate Hamas and you’ll catch all guilty parties in this...including the leaking moles.
Preet Bahara was the US attorney who had to be fired by Sessions, he was in charge of the Clinton-Huma-Hillary investigations that he’d been slow-walking so naturally he had to be pushed. This is payback, no doubt. He’s dirty.
NY AG selective, politicized prosecution and abuse of power has been a path to Democrat reputation-building in NY State Politics since forever.
Cuomo did it, Spitzer did it, Schneiderman is doing it in spades.
Kinda like they did to Governor Sarah Palin.
You mean Ham-ass?
The democrats are AT WAR, most people on our side and perhaps even in the administration have not figured that out yet. If they win the House at any point during Trump’s presidency he will be impeached. They play hardball, we play like sissies most of the time. Except Trump, but he can’t do it all.
Brian Frosh, the AG of Maryland hired five attorneys to prepare lawsuits against Trump.
Maryland WAS in the running to get the new FBI Headquarters and its 11000 jobs.
Key word: WAS
I wonder who’s money is being used here?
Took a negative situation around 1990 of about $200 million in the hole
Turned it into between three and ten billion by 2016
Brings in his projects on time and under budget
It’s not that he doesn’t fail on some projects, but that he keeps on trying
He is dedicated to winning
His real estate firm is sought for management serves from around the world
He hired women for top management positions long before it was popular, in the 1980s...
Has a lovely wife
Has some of the best kids around...
Shares many of our ideals...
Appealed to the public to let him have a chance to change things in the U. S. A.
The public hired him
Yep, string him up...
The Rats lost everywhere.
They are now reducced to resorting to lawfare using specious claims by State AG’s.
“The democrats are AT WAR, most people on our side and perhaps even in the administration have not figured that out yet. If they win the House at any point during Trumps presidency he will be impeached. They play hardball, we play like sissies most of the time. Except Trump, but he cant do it all.”
You are right. He needs help, but only he can nominate/appoint that help. I realize that he is working hard, but he needs to keep up the pressure. He needs to delegate trustworthy people to go out and recruit ideological matches for his policies. Then he needs to purge and replace the executive branch with his loyalists.
They won want it once they get it. And I swear they’ll get it.In spades. Until they beg. And they’ll STILL get it. Wish to hell I were fooling...
The first thing I thought was, “Isn’t this a misappropriation of public funds?” How can Schneiderman, a flaming libtard, use taxpayer money to fund a private vendetta?
NY Attorney General takes aim at Trump whose trail of fraud & corruption is too conspicuous to ignore. #ImpeachTrump http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/324737-ny-attorney-general-hires-prosecutor-likely-to-target-trump

The ‘RATS are trying to copy the tactics the progressives employed against Sarah Palin in Alaska -— ENDLESS NUISANCE LAWSUITS. Sarah Palin was cleaning up the endemic corruption in Alaska (her version of “draining the swamp”) and the corrupt Alaskans (and that included former Governor Murkowski) did everything they could to get rid of Palin and ultimately succeeded.
I don’t think the ‘RATS will have the same success with Trump — other than in their dreams & fantasies.
I thought Trump said Presidents are immune from conflict of interest due to some law.
They are. They can only be impeached. Nothing else. If I were a New York taxpayer I’d be hot.
If I were an adviser of his, I would begin the process of making a significant list of people to fire perhaps the Friday afternoon before Easter with some controllable event to suck up the news cycle to follow on that following Monday.
I would also seriously consider trial ballooning a request for opinion from the US Justice Dept on a military investigation of our IC with recommendations on ways to improve processes and identify leakers. We need to introduce a neutral but patriotic third party into this equation because right now I believe the IC elements involved in this investigation are spending 50% of their time on CYA.
I mean, just today, some democrat called for a special prosecutor to look into this because they have “day jobs” so perhaps having a tight and competent group of military investigators with full access to all data the FBI, CIA, NSA has on this matter would vastly improve how quickly they got on the stick and wrapped this up.
No doubt quite a few Repubs will be helping the Prosecutor to get Trump. There are going to make his 4 years non-stop investigations, accusations, fake news. They will have the microphone and the message daily. Unlike our side who say nothing because they are afraid of elections.
It’s amazing, SOS Clinton, her racking in money for her husband et all and no investigations at all. Our side, no one going for Hillary- instead they caved into the investigations regarding Trump/Russia. The Trump and his twitter remark about wire tapping, which brought Comey and Rogers out to say no evidence against Obama.
Even Sessions, WTF is he doing?
The war has already begun. But only one side is fighting.
Is Sessions in office yet? If so,he is the typical do nothing politician.
This is a part of the coup d’etat. Judges are the Dems power base these days. Have to gear up the army of prosecutors and lawyers to get in front of the judges and nullify the democratic process.
We are in a real crisis.
The Republicans impeached thier hero, BJ Clinton, and the Democrats want revenge.
They see President Trump as the hero of the right, so they want to do the same to him.
That’s what this is all about.
This grudge/feud has going on since Booth killed Lincoln.
The Democrats have been at war with Conservatives for years just because we don't participate doesn't mean they aren't. Just like Islam as it War with everyone we just don't believe it or just don't care take your pick.
He’ll go after the edges of anything Trump-related in New York...Dig until they find a smidge, attempt to turn molehill into a mountain. They’ll stoop to going after the kids, in laws and family. In short, anything they think they can get away with..
Every liberal is a violent totalitarian thug.
Like The Ugly, Fat Criminal Felonious Cow did for umpteen years?
I am 99.99% sure that the statute of limitations is not even close to being applicable...
Thank you, New Yawkers...
