Pony up, asshole.
1. Yes.2. It’s my understanding that the White House Council is the lawyer for the White House/executive branch of the government and not for the guy. So it doesn’t have that kind of privilege anyway. The kind where the lawyer is obligated to keep a persons individual secrets. Maybe it has some other kind of privilege. 🤷🏻♀️ If not, no privilege of any kind.
Ornato needs to be shitcanned. He’s now head of the training center. He was regular Secret Service then he was trumps lapdog and now he’s back in the Secret Service. What in the living fuck?
I hope there’s a house cleaning in Secret Service. There wasn’t at the DOJ so I’m not hopeful. But at least shitcan Ornato!!
Exactly. He should be shitcanned. And lose his pension. Who lets things like this to happen? Whoever did that should be shitcanned and lose their pension too.
Hi Matt, heard you had vamoosed, glad you are here.
I just took a break. I didn't realize until today that I did so during the Big Drama Show.
It wasn't the office that committed the crimes.
Oh that's good!
Not just still in position but is Assistant Director of the United States Secret Service Office of Training. He's teaching all agents to behave and believe as he does.
I agree, but at the same time, be careful what you ask for, because if the repugs take congress in November, every single thing Joe Biden does on a Tuesday morning, including the seven odd minutes spent standing over a low-flow east wing toilet trying to coax a morning wizz past his geriatric prostate, will be an unspeakable crime subject to endless public congressional hearings.
The committee called for it, but Garland refused to uphold the subpoena that they had issued to Meadows
Good comment by susan_g
The DOJ refused to indict Meadows for contempt for refusing to testify despite being subpoenaed. It took six months for the DOJ to make that decision. No one on the committee has been told the reason. I hope it's because the DOJ is investigating him for serious crimes, or he is providing some very important evidence against Trump. But I wouldn't bet much on it.
You know they started dismantling the First Amendment by eliminating the efficacy of the Establishment Clause, right?
OT, but related – I suspect that when the dust settles, the Secret Service is going to be completely turned upside-down. From Raw Story:
"'Individuals who were with Donald Trump on Jan. 6th essentially did their job,' Carol D. Leonnig said during an appearance on MSNBC. "They blocked the president despite him apparently roaring in their faces from going with the rabble, the mob that was heading to the Capitol. They said no, sir, cannot do that insane thing that you are proposing. So, that is, check. Mission accomplished. You know, their civil servant job performed. However, there is a problem in all of this which is the Secret Service uniformly kept enabling Donald Trump all along the way in the final year of his office. Doing things that were extremely dangerous and to his own agents, to his own health, to the health and safety of peaceful protesters.'
She named some of the more egregious things they did like the clearing of Lafayette square, and the campaign rallies during COVID-19 that ultimately gave the virus to many of the advance agents. All of those were due to Anthony Ornato, the person that Trump appointed to be the assistant director of the Secret Service and who is still in his position today."
