It sure is interesting how Trump has the AG chief of staff become the interim AG instead of the deputy Rosenstein who should be the interim AG until a new one is appointed.....

Some people keep saying the Watergate investigation was 3 years long to excuse how long this Russian collusion investigation is taking so I looked that up.

It looks to me like from the time the Washington Post reporters were tipped off by Deep State...pardon me, throat, until Nixon's resignation it was about 2 years.

So if you really do want to use that as the benchmark for the Trump Russian collusion investigation 'Time's up.'

Numerous convictions and enough reclaimed tax money that the investigation is actually turning a profit.

Only a Trump apologist would be disappointed with that.

Rick Scott sues Broward, Palm Beach counties over election results


Quote:
Florida GOP Gov. Rick Scott, the apparent winner in Tuesday’s U.S. Senate election, filed lawsuits late Thursday in Broward and Palm Beach counties as votes continued to mysteriously mount there on behalf of incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson.

On Election Night, unofficial results showed Mr. Scott had beaten Mr. Nelson by a bit less than 60,000 votes – the same razor thin margin by which Mr. Scott had been re-elected governor in 2014.

But as officials in the deeply liberal Broward and Palm Beach counties announced more and more votes Wednesday and Thursday — which whittled away at Mr. Scott’s lead — and squads of Democratic lawyers descended on Florida promising recounts and lawsuits, the Scott campaign and some Republican officials cried foul.

The vote total in Broward County, which is no stranger to dubious voting procedures, stood at 634,000 votes on election night, according to the Scott campaign. That figure swelled to 695,700 votes by 1 a.m. Thursday and then to 707,223 votes by 2:30 p.m.

“And we just learned, that the number has increased to 712,840 ballots cast on election day,” the Scott campaign said at 8 p.m. EST Thursday.

And all of this has unfolded against a backdrop of silence from county officials about where the thousands of votes had been or how many more they may claim to need counting.

Florida Official Overseeing Vote Count Destroyed Ballots, Accused of Not Removing Dead Voters from Rolls

Image

Quote:
The Florida official put in charge of counting votes in Broward County — the most liberal county in the state — for the gubernatorial and Senate race previously destroyed voter ballots, a judge ruled, and was most recently accused of not removing dead voters from the voter rolls.
Broward County Board of Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is in charge of vote counting in the area and has yet to disclose how many ballots are still not counted despite the election for governor and Senate occurring two days ago.

Currently, in the Senate race, Republican Rick Scott is leading Democrat incumbent Bill Nelson by more than 20,000 votes. Nelson is hoping for a blowout in Broward County to push him over the edge for re-election.

Snipes was confronted by local media about why the vote count in Broward County has taken so long.

“Could I please get a moment to go into the room and find out?” Snipes asked the group huddled around her. “OK, when I come back I’ll let you know.”

“But, Dr. Snipes, it is now Thursday,” Weinsier said. “We are still counting ballots in Broward County.”



“We’re counting five pages or six pages for each of the people who voted,” Snipes said.

“But other counties have been able to do it,” Weinsier said.


In May, a judge ruled that Snipes had violated state and federal law after she destroyed voter ballots in the state’s 2016 congressional election. In the race, former Democratic National Convention (DNC) Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz won re-election by less than 7,000 votes against Democrat primary challenger Tim Canova.

The next year, when Canova asked to review the paper ballots in the race, it was revealed that Snipes destroyed the ballots only 12 months after the primary. Federal and state law mandates that ballots not be destroyed until 22 months after an election.

The case exposed that Snipes’ staff had opened ballots in private in 2016 on election day.



Just last year, Snipes’ office was taken to federal court by President Trump’s administration after being accused of keeping felons, noncitizens, and dead voters on the voter rolls in Broward County and at one point having more voters on the rolls than actual voters in the district.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) blasted the slow-moving vote counting in Broward County and the fact that Snipes — despite her scandals — is in charge of the process.

“Broward election supervisors ongoing violation of Florida law requiring timely reporting isn’t just annoying incompetence,” Rubio posted online. “It has opened the door for lawyers to come here & try to steal a seat in the U.S. Senate & Florida Cabinet.”

Kyrsten Sinema increases lead in Arizona Senate race

Quote:
Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema took the lead in the Arizona Senate race in new numbers released by the state Thursday night, flipping the race from what had appeared to be a GOP hold.

Republican Martha McSally led the vote after the polls closed Tuesday, but hundreds of thousands of ballots were still uncounted, officials said.

As the count comes in, Ms. Sinema has overcome a sizable gap.

The latest numbers give her 932,870 votes to Ms. McSally’s 923,260. Earlier in the day, the tally had stood at 856,848 for Ms. McSally and 839,775 for Ms. Sinema.

The McSally campaign said it still expects her to emerge victorious, pointing to its data modeling that showed the ballots counted Thursday, from Maricopa County, came in on early-voting days when GOP turnout was low.

The campaign said a large number of early-voting ballots dropped off on Election Day are still to be counted and they believe those will favor the Republican.

Republicans have so far netted two Senate seats — ousting three incumbent Democrats but losing one of their own.

The Arizona race would cut into that.

Meanwhile, another Republican leads, though the gap is tightening, as votes are being counted in Florida’s Senate race. That seat is currently held by a Democrat.

One more race, in Mississippi, is going to a run-off, where analysts predict the incumbent Republican will prevail.

Republicans could end up with anywhere from 51 to 54 seats when the dust settles.

Muellers investigation started in 2016 before Trump even took office, did it? Might want to check that timeline Sherlock.

OK, I think I've got it now.

"Serves at the pleasure of the president..." seems to mean the President can fire the AG at will.

But the Constitution has an "appointments clause" and that says "the Attorney General is nominated by the President and appointed with the advice and consent of the Senate."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_St ... ey_General

The far left Slate makes a case for why they believe that means, or at least they hope it means, Whitaker can't take charge of the Attorney General's office.

https://amp.slate.com/news-and-politics ... legal.html


Slate is wrong. The President can designate an acting Cabinet member to work for as much as 210 days to allow Congress to interview and approve a designee.

The Carter Page FISA warrant application was placed in July 2016 and the FBI has acknowledged that their unauthorized investigation started as early as January 2016.

So while you are right that the Mueller investigation started after the election the fact remains that the Obama Administration was actively investigating Trump and spying on him (just like Trump said) and then colluding with the Clinton campaign to produce the now-infamous and fictional Fusion GPS dossier which was used to justify an illegal investigation that started before the dossier even existed.

The real scandal here remains the fact that the intelligence services and the FBI were weaponized by the Democrats to try to influence the outcome of the election.

And that's called....wait for it.... meddling.
