As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter
The Trump White House has legal counsel which is going to drag President Donald Trump into federal court in order for the courts, and it will be the Supreme Court to rule on the nepotism laws which the President has engaged in violating.
This all hinges on slights of the law, in claiming the President has full authority to appoint "anyone" who he chooses, but disregards the banning of appointing family members, as the legal counsel views the law as an "agency" appointment.
The problem is the law states OR OVER WHICH HE EXERCISES JURISDICTION.
Section 3110 of title 5, also known as the anti
-nepotism statute, states that “
[a] public official may not appoint, employ, promote, advance, or advocate for
appointment, employment, promotion, or advancement, in or to a civilian position
in the agency in which he is serving or over which he exercises jurisdiction or
control any individual who is a relative of the public official.”
5 U.S.C. §
The statute expressly identifies the President as one of the “public official[s]”
subject to the prohibition, and a son-in-law is a covered “relative.”
The Trump counsel is ludicrous as creating a finding that only HE is listed in the law, and if the President claims he is a woman, that he is not covered by the law.
Every person knows exactly what this nepotism law means, and it means NO FAMILY MEMBER in any form. The President should understand that business and family is not the same as politics and family. One you get fired over and they do not speak to you and the other gets you in prison where you only get to talk through a lawyer.
The Lame Cherry has stated that it is one thing for Don jr. to have a security clearance outside the White House, where he could provide the President feedback on what Americans think, and be able to be privy to intelligence discussions without violating the law.
It is completely different to have Ivanka Trump being her father's eyes and ears, reporting back on the staff, because it impedes their work in always looking over their shoulder, and only Ivanka's pets will get the positive feedback.
The one person for White House spy is Roger Stone, as he is born to it, and would have as gifted of operatives reporting on all the White House gossip.
The President is in violation of federal law and there is not any doubt about this. The worst of this is, Ivanka and Jared Kushner are the weak links. That is proven in what this blog warned of, because who is appearing before Congressional investigating committees, but Mr. Kushner, which is a disaster in it makes the Trump family look like a crime family.
One can fire Katie Walsh, but one can not disown their son in law or daughter.
The President has created a disaster in those he has appointed and the direction which this Administration has taken.
People voted for Donald Trump for peace with Putin, and not tanks on the Russian border.
People voted for a quick victory over ISIS, not for Pentagon control of Donald Trump.
People voted for the repeal of Obmacare, not the Ryancare replacement.
People voted for Donald Trump for a Conservative Government, not Donald Trump threatening Conservatives.
People voted for Donald Trump to end the Clinton and Obama crimes, not to be made to make excuses for Trump crimes.
If Donald Trump wants the Trumpenfuror and the Dummkopf in charge, then let him disown them in court filings in Ivanka is not his child, then she can take over the White House and have little girls trample the abilities of little boys and sentence them to prisons, just as Obama was promoting transvestites over normal people and foreigners.
All law works both ways, and if someone is breaking it showing favor to one group, the next leader can break the law and promote his pet group.
These are the findings of Justice on previous attempts of Presidents to appoint relatives.
Section 3110 was enacted in 1967.
In a 1972 memorandum, our Office concluded
that the statute would bar the President from appointing a relative “to
permanent or temporary employment as a member of the White House staff.”
Memorandum for John W. Dean, III, Counsel to the President, from Roger C.
Cramton, Assistant Attorney General,
Office of Legal Counsel,
Re: Applicability to President of Restriction on Employment of Relatives
at 1 (Nov. 14, 1972)
The Cramton Memo is brief but unequivocal: section 3110,
we said, “seems clearly applicable to. . . positions on the White House staff.”
In 1977, we advised that section 3110 would preclude the President from
appointing the First Lady to serve as chair of the President’s Commission on
Mental Health (“Mental Health Commission”), whether with or without compensation.
In 1983, we were asked whether the President could appoint a relative to a
Presidential Advisory Committee on Private Sector Initiatives (“CPSI”).
SeeMemorandum for David B. Waller, Senior Associate Counsel to the President,
from Robert B. Shanks, Deputy Assistant Attorney General, Office of Legal
Re: Appointment of Member of President’s Family to Presidential
Advisory Committee on Private Sector Initiatives
(Feb. 28, 1983).
We answered that the President’s proposed appointment of a relative to the CPSI raised “virtually the same problems raised by Mrs. Carter’s proposed service on the President’s
Commission on Mental Health.”
Ever person knows blessed well what it means that you can not appoint a family member. It is the same as every person knows what it means in PEACEFUL TRANSITION, means Obama can not be coup plotting and leaking intelligence information.
The law is the law and the spirit of it is not what you can get away with, but what it means to uphold it.
