Puerto Rico has a “rico” (rich) history of government corruption and waste. They were on the verge of bankruptcy LONG before hurricanes hit it. So, while we ALL care about the welfare of our fellow Americans who live there, the local politicians from the governor on down cannot continue to conduct corrupt business as usual, while at the same time holding their hands out asking for more and more money from the rest of us. This whole “bonus” nonsense is an affront, and we should just reduce our financial support in accordance (i.e. dollar for dollar) with whatever gratuitous waste of money the governor and his cronies dole out with the excuse of “that’s just how it’s been done here for years.” They were devastated by hurricanes. Extreme situations call for extreme responses; NOT typical cronyism as usual.
Big surprise….not! I’m sure the voters in Missouri would like to know why Sen. McCaskill is abusing their hard-earned tax-dollars this way.. Might even be worthy of a Senate ethics investigation.. Anyway, to read the rest of this article, click on the text above.
Robert Mueller’s appointment as the special counsel was tainted from the get-go. He and his protege, James Comey, had not only a professional relationship. But, they had a personal one as well. So, right there, we had clear conflict of interest as Mr. Mueller clearly could not be objective or impartial with respect to Mr. Comey. These latest revelations only add. Unfortunately, due to “optics” and politics, Trump really cannot remove him, even though he technically has the power to do so. More members of Congress need to step forward and put pressure on Mr. Mueller to step down, if he doesn’t have the personal integrity to do so on his own.
