NRA complains New York state crackdown is hurting them financially and they may have to shutter some operations

Published

According to an amended lawsuit that the National Rifle Association has filed against the state of New York, their financial well-being is threatened by adverse influence levied on institutions doing business with them by influential state lawmakers.

The ABA Journals reports that lawyers for the NRA have added to their original lawsuit against the state claiming financial hardship because New York authorities are discouraging banks and insurers from doing business with them.

Blaming New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D), the NRA said he has bullied outside businesses, resulting in a “concerted efforts to stifle the NRA’s freedom of speech and to retaliate against the NRA based on its viewpoints  causing other insurance, banking, and financial institutions from doing business with the NRA.”

The complaint states that such outside influence will make companies, “… rethink their mutually beneficial business relationships with the NRA for fear of monetary sanctions or expensive public investigations.”

Based upon loss of income and reluctance of insurers to deal with them, the NRA contends “It has not been able to renew its media liability insurance. If the group cannot secure a policy soon, it could be forced to shutter its multimillion-dollar television network, NRA TV, or a number of its print publications.”

Additionally the NRA contends that without insurance, it “cannot maintain its physical premises” or “convene off-site meetings and events.”

The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.

Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.

He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.

Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.

White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.

"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
