Wow, here’s an op-ed by former U.S attorney and deputy assistant Attorney Gen. Harry Litman in USA TODAY that never even mentions that the Manafort trial that started Tuesday has nothing to do with Trump’s campaign.  You would never know from reading this that Manafort’s trial or any of the other charges coming out of the special counsel are not related to that.  So, of course, the assumption will be that they are.  According to Litman, a guilty verdict against Manafort will make Trump’s witch-hunt claim “seem even weaker and more desperate.”  This piece is PART of the witch hunt!

Mueller is described here as “a fine GOP prosecutor.”  Litman quotes Judge Ellis on the possible sentence Manafort faces but conveniently does not share the one about prosecutors getting defendants to “sing” or “compose.”

Litman says, “It has been a mystery for many months why Manafort has steadfastly refused to cooperate with the Mueller probe, given the very high likelihood of conviction.”  Um, maybe because there isn’t any misconduct on Trump's part for him to disclose?  Maybe he’s not a very talented “composer.”

 

The fact that this person has been a U.S. attorney and deputy asst. AG is dismaying but not surprising --- perfectly consistent with what we’re finding out every day about “the swamp.”

This is a must-read article for those who think that talking a lot about your leftist opinions makes you qualified for an important executive position.  It’s by a “social justice attorney” who worked for the City of New York.  She didn’t like Mayor Mike Bloomberg on philosophical grounds (not far left enough for her, I guess), but was pleasantly surprised at how efficient and effective he was at running the city and dealing with problems such as homelessness.  You see, he was a businessman and actually knew how to manage people and run things (sound familiar?)

But then came the far-left Mayor Bill DeBlasio (whom she admits she voted for.)  The well-oiled system Bloomberg built quickly fell to pieces under the weight of mismanagement, arrogance, corrupt and greedy political appointees, poor communications, pointless and burdensome new rules and regulations, massive fraud, lack of oversight and outright incompetence.  Homelessness increased even as the budget to fight it doubled.  Trying to point out the problems got her fired – while she was on family leave (liberal compassion, ladies and gentlemen!) 

 

Read it all, but here’s the moral: “I was shocked to discover that I actually preferred Michael Bloomberg’s very corporate City Hall to Bill de Blasio’s failed socialist utopia. Who wouldn’t?”

I have no idea, but New Yorkers just reelected de Blasio in a landslide (ironically, if New York suffered a real landslide, he'd be totally unprepared to deal with it), and now they’re poised to send a wet-behind-the-ears socialist utopian to DC to fight Trump’s successes at lowering taxes, creating jobs and more than doubling GDP growth.  I guess some people must really like failure and incompetence. I just wish they’d quit voting to inflict it on the rest of us.
