Last week, President Donald Trump tweeted his frustration that the FBI was not providing documents about his former political opponent, Hillary Clinton, to congressional investigators at a rapid enough clip. What Trump didn’t mention was that Attorney General Jeff Sessions had already instructed the FBI to pick up the pace. In fact, Sessions had long been doing Trump’s bidding on politically sensitive matters that he promised to recuse himself from. A few weeks earlier, after Trump had publicly called for the ouster of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe before he could retire with full benefits, Sessions fired him. And since last summer, Trump and Republicans in Congress have repeatedly called for investigations into Clinton and the FBI. Last week, … [Read more...] about Who Can Stop Jeff Sessions From Breaking His Recusal Pledge? Probably No One.
Conservative leaders are urging President Donald Trump to stand behind embattled EPA chief Scott Pruitt, organizing for the first time to present a unified front in defense of a Trump Cabinet official. In a letter delivered to the White House on Friday, the group of prominent conservatives thanked Trump for sticking with Pruitt, one of their ideological brethren, and said, in essence, that Pruitt’s policy accomplishments made him worth the trouble.Story Continued Below “The days of a rogue, agenda driven EPA are over,” the group wrote. “Scott Pruitt is a bold, capable manager and is right for this job.

The New York Times is reporting that the Environmental Protection Agency quietly reassigned, demoted, or forced out at least five staffers—four career officials and one Trump appointee—after they objected to extravagant spending and travel requests made by Scott Pruitt, the agency’s administrator. In his 13 months at the EPA, Pruitt has spent $43,000 to build a secure phone booth in his office; has flown first class and on charter flights for trips around the country and overseas; and has been flanked by an unusual, 24-7 security detail that dwarfs those used by his predecessors and sucks resources from the agency’s environmental enforcement office. Pruitt’s spending comes amid significant cuts to environmental programs and staffing at the agency. “We’re proud to report that we’re reducing the size of government, … [Read more...] about The New York Times Just Reported That 5 EPA Employees Were Sidelined After Questioning Scott Pruitt

I think I’ve now read upwards of a dozen articles about whether Amazon pays a fair rate for shipping its packages via the post office. It’s insane. The journalists of America are apparently required to write detailed explainers about every single stupid thing that Donald Trump tweets. They do this even when they know that Trump is motivated solely by personal animus, not by any serious policy preference. Here is everything you need to know in 100 words. In every business, there are centralized departments—factories, billing, computer services, etc.—that are used by lots of different product lines. The cost of these common services has to be allocated across different products, and the post office is no different. It has lots of costs—trucks, planes, distribution centers—that are used by all their product lines: first class mail, priority mail, packages, … [Read more...] about Trump vs. Amazon In Exactly 100 Words
