Trump fumes about the $ 17 millions spent on the Mueller probe...

NY Attorney General just revealed brilliant plan to stop Trump from pardoning pals in Mueller probe

With President Trump not so subtly playing the pardon card as he publicly signals all his indicted and soon-to-be-indicted cohorts that they have nothing to worry about as long as they keep their mouths shut and don’t turn state’s witness, Americans worried about the proper administration of justice have always been able to take solace in the fact that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly been keeping the Attorney General of New York State in the loop on his investigations.

The theory goes that if Mueller wins convictions against any of the Trump-connected players in the long sordid saga, and then Trump turns around and pardons them, their cases can be brought back to state court where presidential pardons have no power.

Now, however, attention has been focused on a potential problem with that strategy, according to articles on The Hill and PoliticusUSA.

Acting New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood raised the issue today of the double jeopardy loophole, which could mean that New York may not be able to prosecute on the state level anyone pardoned by the president, and urged New York State lawmakers to close the loophole as soon as possible.

Underwood was reacting to the pardon that Trump issued to right-wing campaign contribution law violator Dinesh D’Souza when she issued the following statement today:

“President Trump’s latest pardon makes crystal clear his willingness to use his pardon power to thwart the cause of justice, rather than advance it,” Underwood began.

“By pardoning Dinesh D’Souza, President Trump is undermining the rule of law by pardoning a political supporter who is an unapologetic convicted felon. First, it was Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Then it was Scooter Libby. Now it’s Dinesh D’Souza,” she continued.

“Lawmakers must act now to close New York’s double jeopardy loophole and ensure that anyone who evades federal justice by virtue of a politically expedient pardon can be held accountable if they violate New York law.”

I sent it to all those I know and also to those I do not know, as long as I have an email address

I never miss the opportunity to say that the majority of Americans did not vote for him. That they're not morons, slumped in front of their television sets, stuffing themselves with chips and burgers, bringing everything down with the help of a glass of Coke...

This photo will reinforce the point.

Fair trade, says the dumbasssh*theadf*ckface ! Maybe he's talking about this one ?

Strange fruit - Billie Holiday

You certainly know much better than I do the history and impact of this song, so powerful, so brilliantly interpreted by Billie Holiday.

A sublime, poignant song, whose title would have been so much desired to be that of a fruit gone forever...

M. Donald Trump, I wish you sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, many more years of life

Allow me to detail my very sincere wishes for the many years, decades, which I really and sincerely wish you:

- that you live in the darkest misery, in the most cruel of destitution,

- that you will the victim of acrimony, wickedness, injustice and arbitrariness. These charming benefits that you currently masterly practice,

- that you have absolutely no one, not even God, to turn to ,

- that you suffer in your flesh from non-fatal but debilitating and disabling diseases,

- that you suffer from the sovereign contempt of your contemporaries,

- that you suffer from the apocalyptic judgment that History will carry on you, already during your lifetime,

- that you suffer a hundredfold what your wretched, vile, pathetic and useless person, with a soul as black as the coal that you so ardently advocate, what you are now making your fellow citizens and the world suffer ,

The only thing I do not wish, is you, to be recognized as the worst scum the Americans have ever known and endured. It's useless and for good reason: you already are!

Looking forward to seeing you soon, weeping blood tears.

With my deepest disdain,

Signed : a true American and America lover, which you do absolutely not represent, and an authentic admirer of what your predecessors of goodwill, even the worse, accomplished.
