Sen Feinstein says DACA an EO," That's why we need to pass a law & we should do it"



Quote from DU:

Star Member Eliot Rosewater (6,471 posts)
1. Anything not yet in the books can be considered shaky legal grounds, nothing

new or interesting about this.

Dianne is assuming people understand what is meant by something that is a LAW and something that is an EO.

You see laws are interpreted by judges, so laws themselves are on shaky ground when you have people like Gorsuch and the other rightwing idiots around.

DACA isnt even a law, just an EO, so with our enemies around of course it is on shaky grounds.

Facebook says it sold political ads to Russian company during 2016 election

Facebook says it sold political ads to Russian company during 2016 election


Representatives of Facebook told congressional investigators Wednesday that it has discovered it sold ads during the U.S. presidential election to a shadowy Russian company seeking to target voters, according to several people familiar with the companys findings.

Facebook officials reported that they traced the ad sales, totaling $100,000, to a Russian troll farm with a history of pushing pro-Kremlin propaganda, these people said.

A small portion of the ads, which began in the summer of 2015, directly named Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, the people said. Most of the ads focused on pumping politically divisive issues such as gun rights and immigration fears, as well as gay rights and racial discrimination.

The acknowledgment by Facebook comes as congressional investigators and special counsel Robert Mueller are probing Russian interference in the U.S. election, including allegations that the Kremlin may have coordinated with the Trump campaign.

The U.S. intelligence community concluded in January that Russia had interfered in the U.S. election to help elect Trump, including by using paid social media trolls to spread fake news intended to influence public opinion.

To the people who did not vote for HRC & still bragging about it. You are not an ally!. THREAD:

Author of thread is talking about voters in general, not about DU specifically.

https://twitter.com/itsmebeccax/status/904534950761959425


Tonight is one of those nights where I have to sit and wonder how there are still people out there bragging about not voting for Hillary. 1/

Let's face the facts: If Hillary were President, the headline tonight wouldn't be that the President is shredding DACA. I can assure you. 2/

Would things be flowers & roses? No. Would we be brunching without a care? No. But so many people would be safer under President Clinton. 3/

We wouldn't have to worry about Obamacare being repealed because President Clinton would veto every horrendous healthcare bill. 4/

Families like Karla Ortiz's wouldn't have to fear deportation on a daily basis. LGBTQ+ people would have an advocate in the Oval. 5/

We'd have a President who isn't afraid to say #BlackLivesMatter. Who recognizes that police brutality and white supremacy are problems. 6/

It wasn't just about voting for Hillary Clinton. It was about ensuring federal protections for marginalized communities. 7/

To the people who had the privilege to sit at home, vote 3rd party, &/or treat the election as a joke: shame on you. You're not an ally. 8/

There were so many people counting on you to elect a President, Governors, Senators, and Reps that would protect them. You let them down. 9/

Own up to the mistake. I hope to see you on the front lines. Because now we really cannot afford to lose more than we have already. 10/10

Trump can dodge federal crimes with pardons but not state law

SNIP/
Unfortunately for Trump, the story may not end there. This is because a legal principle called “dual sovereignty” allows a state (or multiple states) to prosecute people for the same crimes as the federal government, if the conduct constitutes a crime and was committed in that state.

This is true even if the person has already been tried by the federal government.

Under the dual sovereignty principle, the Fifth Amendment’s prohibition on double jeopardy — which prevents the government from trying someone twice for the same crime — doesn’t apply if the second trial is by a different “sovereign” — in this case, the state.

How is this possible? The idea of dual sovereignty rests on the premise that the power of the states to prosecute crimes existed before the creation of the federal government, and is reserved to them by the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. As a result, everyone is a citizen of both the United States and of a state or territory — and therefore owes allegiance to the laws of each. What’s more, the United States and an individual state may be protecting different interests, even if they are prosecuting the same crime.

Presidential Pardons Might Not End Russia Prosecutions

SNIP/

While presidential pardons can halt the federal case, local prosecutors could then pursue any Americans suspected of aiding Russia’s election meddling. In fact, legal experts say presidential pardons could make that prospect more likely.

According to a new MSNBC legal analysis, federal pardons could open the door to local criminal investigations in several states.

Why So Many States Might Have a Case
The most likely places are New York, Virginia and Illinois, three states where there is evidence that election-related crimes occurred — though it is unclear if any Americans assisted with those Russian efforts.

Beyond the three main states, the legal arguments for potential criminal jurisdiction are even broader, extending to many of the 39 states that were subject to Russian hacking.

According to U.S. intelligence and public accounts, Russian efforts included criminal hacking into Democratic National Committee emails, a conspiracy to distribute that stolen material, and separate computer intrusions into state election systems. That activity could form the basis of felony cases in several states, and conspiracy charges if any Americans were found to be involved.

Local prosecutors have not disclosed investigations of such conduct. Typically, state and local prosecutors defer to federal investigators, especially in national security cases. But pardons could change that.

According to a source with knowledge of one state attorney general’s preparations, the office is already studying its potential state jurisdiction for Russia-related crimes. The source told MSNBC that state investigators typically defer to federal inquiries, but there is a perception the Russia inquiry may not turn out to be a typical situation.
