Fox Guarding the Hen House

Regarding ...

a group of ethics watchdogs is turning to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to look into whether President Trump’s many business interests violate the Emoluments Clause of the U.S. Constitution.

and just for the record …

Mark de LA says
Just like Trump said during one of his speeches he is exempt when discussing his company.

No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States, which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been encreased during such time....

ARTICLE 1, SECTION 6, CLAUSE 2

Yep, perhaps there is loop hole in the ethics code.  

I still want to know if #PreetBharara would have investigated #Trump’s foreign dealings. 

Mark de LA says
Then too Bill Clinton fired almost all the us attorneys 93 of them.

Seth says
There is no question that a president can fire attorneys … happens in almost all administrations … those attorneys server at the “pleaseure” of the president (period)… although if you think about it in #threefoldness terms, they should be an independent judicial part of the equation. 

The only question is the #timeing … it bespeaks of hiding corruption … it smells. 

Mark de LA says
Timing is your bias.  Most presidents do it in the beginning of their term as they drain the swamp. An attorney general is political – look at Janet Reno of “Waco” fame & “Elian Gonzales” fame. 

Seth says
yep i (and others) are making something of the #timeing … that is our bias. 

you, on the other hand, are imagining that he did not fire the person who would have investigated him, just because he didnt want to be investigated … that is your bias. 

Now that we know that, we shall see what happens.

Mark de LA says
Frankly I think he should drain the entire swamp of them. Like you ignored, they are political as exemplified by Preet who had to make a splash by not resigning & going to the media when Trump used his almost trademarked phrase “Your’re Fired!
