Now, Trump, On The Other Hand, Knows How To Create REAL Bias In The Justice System: Bribery!

Bribe

Florida’s attorney general Pam Bondi personally solicited a political contribution from Donald Trump while she considered joining an investigation of alleged fraud at Trump University and its affiliates, AP reports

Trump’s $25,000 donation to Bondi came from a Trump family foundation in a likely violation of rules surrounding legitimate activities by 501 C (3) charities, which are not allowed to engage in political grant-making. And Justice for All, a political group backing Bondi’s re-election,  reported receiving the check on Sept. 17, 2013 — four days after Bondi’s office publicly announced she was considering joining a New York state probe of Trump University’s activities.

What a coincidence!

 After the check came in, Bondi decided to leave Trump alone, citing insufficient grounds to proceed.

ANOTHER coincidence!

This was a bribe, ladies and gentlemen, and an unusually obvious one.

Bondi’s a crook, and an unethical lawyer. Trump, meanwhile, is Trump.

Do you wonder that he said that “it is a rigged system”? No wonder he thinks that: he’s helped rig it.

  1. Texas’s Greg Abbott did the same thing.

    I’m looking forward to finding my way to the front of a crowd the next time he comes through town for a campaign event.

  2. Anyone who thinks that the courts are not corrupt doesn’t know much about the courts. I got a degree in Criminal Justice and then discovered that the criminals were sitting on the bench.

  3. To be fair, I think it’s likely that Trump’s normal job in real estate in New York involved a lot of palm greasing. I think he’s someone who learned to work with an already rigged system, not someone responsible for rigging it in the first place.

    • He’s not being accused of rigging anything “in the first place.” It is, however, clear that he did acquire the corrupt practices, and has practiced them assiduously and successfully. To be fair indeed, why would you think he wouldn’t do the same in politics?

  4. Reminds me of the ‘activist judges’ label that gets thrown around. But only aimed at ones that disagree with the complainer’s politics. If they like to ‘rewrite laws’ but you *like* those laws even if they’re unconstitutional, no sweat. What’s good for the goose is apparently to tar and feather anyone remotely perceived as against you. Even if it’s the gander.

  5. Jack – may I ask you a hypothetical? You see, we in Australia recently elected someone who, when in office, did some really outrageous things, though being fair, he lied about what his intentions were during the campaign, doing the exact opposite when elected. Anyway, I’ve seen someone defy all convention and reply to objections of ,”… but but but.. you can’t DO that!” by doing it anyway.

    So, the hypothetical; Trump gets elected. Immediately after negating all previous Executive Orders (as he’s promised to do) he quietly declares HRC’s actions in allowing secret material to reach enemies of the US as a “belligerent act” against the US. As is any support of her. Thus section 1021.b.2 of the National Defense Authorization Act 2014 applies.

    “Donald Trump on Thursday called for his likely Democratic rival Hillary Clinton to be imprisoned.
    “I will say this, Hillary Clinton has got to go to jail,” Trump told supporters here as he slammed Clinton’s foreign policy speech earlier in the day in which Clinton called Trump dangerous and “temperamentally unfit” to be president.
    “Folks, honestly, she’s guilty as hell,” Trump said of the Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.”

    Then an executive order requiring no expenditure of taxpayer funds by any federal agency to enforce a contempt of court action against the Administration.

    What’s next? All perfectly legal, though I say nothing about how it might eventually be found unconstitutional.

    • Good times, good times.

      I fully expect stuff like that, lots of it. SCOTUS can act with dispatch, and would. Prosecuting Hillary would be ugly and stupid and a terrible precedent, but legally justified.

      • Prosecution? No need for such trivial details.

        Section 1021.b.2 of the National Defense Authorization Act 2014 allows imprisonment without trial and with no habeas corpus rights on the President’s say-so.

  6. The Middle East historian Bernard Lewis wrote: “The difference between Middle Eastern and Western economic approaches can be seen even in their distinctive forms of corruption, from which neither society is exempt. In the West, one makes money in the market, and uses it to buy or influence power. In the East, one seizes power, and uses it to make money.” It’s our generation’s great privilege to see specimens of both of these birds in full flight simultaneously.

  7. The cartoonist who draws the comic strip Shoe had his characters say it correctly last Sunday: “It’s not the lesser of two evils. It’s the evil of two lessers.”
