According to multiple informed sources, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey Berman was investigating allies of President Trump including the legality of Rudy Giulani's interactions with foreign government officials and the legality of Trump's dealings with Deutche Bank.

Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission Jay Clayton informed his friends Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr that he was stepping down from his post and wants to be the U.S. Attorney for that district. He has no prosecutorial experience and he represented Deutche Bank as a corporate lawyer.

June 19: Barr announced that Berman was stepping down from his post. At 10:30 p.m. the White House announced that Jay Clayton would be nominated to fill Berman's vacancy. Berman says that he has no intention of resigning.

June 20: Barr (or Trump?) fires Berman. Under U.S. Senate rules, New York Sens. Chuck Shumer and Kirsten Gillibrand block Clayton's nomination. Chairman of the Judiciary Committee Sen. Lindsey Graham announces he will not bring up nomination for a hearing.

Once again, Trump's malevolent management style is defeated by his massive incompetence. Pray for America. Suggested bumper sticker for 2020: Dump Trump: In your guts, you know he's nuts.

Ahhhhhh shoot! We don't care about Clayton, we wanted to tie a tin can and a fire cracker to "Geoffrey Berman" ...and send him home! We are tired of people like Geoffrey Berman, Judge Sullivan! They are nothing but "DEEP State" appointees or joined the resist movement after they were appointed! Either way, this is what we are going to start doing to them,.....FIRE THEIR BUTTS! Trump is done playing games! If anybody don't believe me, .....go tear down another statue!

Fixed it for you, Charles. “Ahhhhh shoot! We don’t care about the Constitution, we ...”

Carlos Ponce

What's the Constitution have to do with firing a US attorney?

President Bill Clinton fired 93 U.S. attorneys soon after taking office on March 23, 1993.

On December 7, 2006, the George W. Bush administration's Department of Justice ordered the dismissal of seven United States Attorneys.

Likewise, The Obama DOJ fired US attorneys. One in particular was investigating voter intimidation conducted by the New Black Panthers. The Obama replacement dropped that investigation.

Was Gary Scoggins alarmed? No. US attorneys can be fired. US attorneys serve at the will of the administration.

Comparening Trump's acheviements with the in massive failures of Obama makes Trump look like a superman.

Charles Douglas

Trump Diesel!!!!!!! 2020!! I "SPECK" we'll rid this country of a ocean full of DEEP STATERS....before Nikki Haley takes over for Trump Diesel in 2024! I know that Mr. Israel Jack Sr. can relate to what I'm saying too![beam]

"According to multiple informed sources" Your source is either the NYT, WAPO or some other Liberal media propaganda outlet.

Jerome Bourgeois did not vote for Trump in 2016 and chances are will not vote for him in 2020. His Letter to the Editor written in 2016 did not change anyone's mind. Neither will this one. People recognize hate when they read it.

Bailey Jones

One need only look at recent supreme court cases for evidence of his incompetence. In both the DACA case and the Census citizenship question case, the court basically said "you could have gotten the result you wanted if you knew how government worked".

Carlos Ponce

I suggest Bailey read DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY ET AL. v. THURAISSIGIAM in which SCOTUS ruled 7-2 in favor of Trump administration's immigration policy.

https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/19pdf/19-161_g314.pdf

The court in DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY ET AL. v. REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA ET AL.deemed the administration was right to rescind Obama's DACA program which they found illegal but it needed a bit more so the Trump administration will refile using the court's suggestions.

https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/19pdf/18-587_5ifl.pdf

Bailey Jones

"but it needed a bit more" That's exactly what I said, Carlos. It would have gone their way if they knew what they were doing.

Carlos Ponce

Question is why Bailey has not cited the other SCOTUS decisions in Trump's favor?

"Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister!.......1 john 4:20-21. [ Gary,..what Mr. Israel Jack said about those who hates Trump....are hating GOD also, is true! Yes! Mr. JACK was right and he put it out there good too! You threw Pence in the mix ..Mr. Jack said Presidents, NOT Vice-Presidents! Bush, Carter, Reagan neither one has done more for BLACKS OR JEWS as Trump has and you know this! All of them were afraid to recognize Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel but Trump did it!! Who loved Israel more then? They got streets and markers named after Trump in Isarel now! Which President loved African-Americans enough to sign into law a bill getting them out of prison put there by people like Joe Biden unfairly? Talk back to if you can!!!!!! Wasn't FDR the President who put Thousands of Japanese Americans in Prison Camps because of fear and racism? More Black, Hispanics, and women had jobs and homes before China turned this VIRUS a loose on the world that at any other time in the history of the USA, and you know this! Lastly Mr. Jack knows quite a bit about GOD, the Devil, love and hate, so I would not be so quick to discount what he says OG![wink]

Hmmm... where to start?

1. "Best President Ever". See Lincoln, Abraham; Roosevelt Franklin Delano, and Reagan, Ronald for starters.

2. "No other president stood on Godly principle like President Trump". We've had a lot of Presidents of deep faith. Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush come to mind recently. VP Mike Pence is an extremely devout man. In fact, most of our Presidents, to my knowledge, have been people of faith. What is your criteria for rating Donald Trump's adherance to "Godly Principle" above these others?

3. "Those are the people that hate God." Are you saying that all who hate our President hate God? Can you define hating the President in this context? Is it merely disagreeing with him? Is it refusing to wear a red MAGA hat? I do not like him personally and disagree with a lot of what he says and some, (but not all) of what he does. Does that constitute hate? I'm pretty sure I don't hate God. In fact just the opposite. So do you know me or my heart?

I don't know what you've seen that I've missed, but Trump acts like one of the most

un-Godly people I have ever seen. He spews hatred, bullies, and lies on a daily basis,

I love God, and I do my best by live a Christian life. Feeling love and not hatred toward the actions of Trump has been a strengthener for me in my daily walk.

He's fighting the good fight to protect the most innocent....the unborn child. There's scripture that says that's a good thing.

Terri Abraham, King David was also despised for his antics yet the Bible describes him as a man after God's own heart.

Ted Gillis

You’re the expert on hate Carlos.

Carlos Ponce

I know hate when I see hate. As for me, I'm a lover not a hater.[love]

Ron Binkley

Does anybody know where I can get one of those bumper stickers?

Lisa Gray

I agree with Mr. Israel Jack. I cannot wait to see the heads start rolling when many high in the Democrat party are exposed and the truth of what was on Anthony Weiner's laptop is exposed. Many of these people on the left are truly Godless, deceitful and serve a dark master.

Charles Douglas

[thumbup][thumbup] Exactly!!!!

tom carpenter

Yeah, but how many of them flew around on Jerry Epstein's plane like Trump?

Carlos Ponce

Donald Trump took one trip from Palm Beach, Florida, to Newark, New Jersey on Jerry Epstein's plane in 1997. "The new flight manifests show Trump joining Epstein, Epstein’s brother Mark, Ghislaine Maxwell, and others on the flight from Palm Beach International Airport to Newark Liberty International Airport on Jan. 5, 1997, supporting Mark Epstein's previous recollection of Trump flying on Epstein’s jet."

Flight manifest records show Bill Clinton went on at least 27 flights on Epstein’s “Lolita Express”. Former President Bill Clinton's press secretary, Angel Ureña, claimed that “in 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane: One to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa.

One flight for Trump, 27 flights for Clinton.

Charles Douglas

[thumbup][thumbup] Exactly !!!!!

Gary Miller

Trump's Epstein trip was the first and last. We know why Clinton took 40+ flights on the Epstein "lolita express.

Ted Gillis

Anthony Weiner’s laptop got pizza sauce spilled on it while Lisa Paige and Peter Storkz were meeting for lunch at Comet Pizza. They tried wiping it clean with a bleached cloth, but that only made Hillary’s Parkinson disease flair up when Humida left it in the Clinton’s garage the night before Hillary testified to Congress for 11 hours!

Gheez...... Can’t you all keep up?
