Yesterday we reported on how USA Today and other news websites are creating new ways for sources to leak on Trump. Today we find out that former Obama administration lawyers have formed a new group just to investigate and file lawsuits against Trump:
FREE BEACON – Lawyers who worked with former President Barack Obama have formed a nonprofit called United to Protect Democracy, which aims at filing lawsuits against President Donald Trump’s administration.
The group plans to investigate Trump, give information to the press to build the pressure for Congressional investigations, and eventually file lawsuits, Politico reported on Thursday.
The leader of the group and former associate White House counsel Ian Bassin warned that democracies don’t end quickly. He said they often “decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps,” in an apparent suggestion that the Trump administration would contribute to that decline.
The left is intent on giving Trump as much hell as they possibly can. Everything is going to be litigated in the courts to try and bind the administration’s hands from doing what needs to be done.
Look, I get that there are some things that will be worth investigating. But that would come on a case by case basis. To me this sounds moore like a coordinated attack to keep the Trump administration from undoing Obama’s policies.
