The “Law and Order” President appears to once again break the law by ordering it to be done. I guess that is what he meant by this:
When the President is not draining the swamp, he is creating a new one.
Here is how the corrupt Trump Admin really get things done:
a) Appoint a shill to a Deputy position avoiding Senate confirmation.
b) Appoint the shill to the Acting Director position but never have your buddy in the Senate actually confirm him for the job as Director.
c) Your shill knows he will not be appointed so he writes something that says as long as there is no Director over him , then all the power and duties of the Director’s office now belong to him.
d) Then the shill opens up 95% of the federal lands in Montana to oil and gas companies.
e) Then the Montana governor sues the Trump Administration because the un-appointed shill didn’t have the Constitutional authority to actually approve selling those rights in Montana.
f) Then the Trump layers argue that while the shill didn’t have the position, he did have the authority and power to do what he did because he wrote a piece of paper that said he did. Then they said Obama did it, too…like children.
g) The Judge tells them they are idiots and rules against the President’s lawyers.
“BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that President Donald Trump’s leading steward of public lands has been serving unlawfully, blocking him from continuing in the position in the latest pushback against the administration’s practice of filling key positions without U.S. Senate approval.
U.S. Interior Department Bureau of Land Management acting director William Perry Pendley served unlawfully for 424 days without being confirmed to the post by the Senate as required under the Constitution, U.S. District Judge Brian Morris determined.”
Oh, did I mention that William Perry Pendley also did this:
“During the Reagan administration, Pendley was a deputy interior secretary for energy and minerals under James G. Watt. Pendley was reassigned in 1984 when a federal commission faulted him, along with other high-ranking officials, in the underpricing of coal-mining leases in the Powder River Basin, the largest such federal sale in history.[“
