Trump is a ‘cowardly sadist’ who is destroying federal workers’ lives while performing for his base: law professor

Published

Legendary Harvard Law Prof. Laurence Tribe labeled President Donald Trump as a “cowardly sadist” for not caring about the human toll of his government shutdown.

Tribe, who has taught at Harvard for 50 years and argued three dozen cases before the United States Supreme Court, slammed Trump on the president’s favorite social media platform.

“There’s obviously no real immigration emergency on the border, but Trump might try to use the unending shutdown itself as the ’emergency’ and pretend that his only way to stop it is to steal disaster money for his wall,” Tribe tweeted Saturday. “His base might buy that inverted logic but courts won’t.”

Tribe warned his followers to “be prepared.”

“Trump loves fighting, forcing people into submission,” he noted.

“So he pulls emergency trigger, gets sued,” Tribe predicted. “If judge says no wall while case continues, Trump says he’ll veto bill to open government without a green light to begin digging. He blames court and Congress for ongoing shutdown.”

“One thing for sure: The mounting human toll of this longest-ever shutdown counts for zero in Trump’s balance sheet,” he wrote.

Trump has now presided over the longest government shutdown in American history.

“Holding his base, humiliating his ‘enemies,’ being on offense, are all that matter to this cowardly sadist,” he added.

This was not Tribe’s first time taking Trump to task on Twitter.

Law enforcement files discredit Brian Kemp’s accusation that Democrats tried to hack the Georgia election

Published

on

It was a stunning accusation: Two days before the 2018 election for Georgia governor, Republican Brian Kemp used his power as secretary of state to open an investigation into what he called a “failed hacking attempt” of voter registration systems involving the Democratic Party.

But newly released case files from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reveal that there was no such hacking attempt.

The evidence from the closed investigation indicates that Kemp’s office mistook planned security tests and a warning about potential election security holes for malicious hacking.

Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
