Elizabeth Warren howls over Trump replacement of U.S. Attorneys

Elizabeth Warren howls over Trump replacement of U.S. Attorneys

Predictable for someone who fancies herself leader of “the resistance”

https://youtu.be/wiRMyRuVDBE

Elizabeth Warren knows that both Obama and Bill Clinton dismissed U.S. attorneys after taking office. Yet she’s preparing to go to war over Trump doing it. Warren is just doing what she always does best. Playing to the far left base of her party.

Alan Yuhas reports at The Guardian:

Elizabeth Warren says Trump pushed out prosecutors to install ‘cronies’

The progressive senator Elizabeth Warren accused Donald Trump of firing a prominent prosecutor to install “cronies” , warning on Sunday of “a massive fight” in the Senate over his picks for new US attorneys.

On Saturday, Trump fired Preet Bharara, the US attorney of the southern district of Manhattan, where the prosecutor had pursued corruption cases against members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. In November, Bharara met with Trump and his nominee for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, and said he had “agreed to stay on” after conversations with both.

But on Friday afternoon, Sessions abruptly ordered 46 prosecutors, nearly all appointees of Barack Obama, to resign “effective immediately”. Bharara refused to resign and was fired, saying in a brief public statement: “One hallmark of justice is absolute independence, and that was my touchstone every day that I served.”…

Warren said the president “wants people like AG Sessions, a loyalist who lied to the Senate about meeting with the Russians”, alluding to Session’s failure, under oath, to disclose his own conversations with the ambassador.

Warren has been sounding off on Twitter:

Warren Vows Obstruction of Trump U.S. Attorneys

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) promised to use President Donald Trump’s firing of a U.S. attorney in New York Saturday as a launching pad for a “massive fight” with a renewed series of Democrat-led political obstruction during a Twitter tirade Sunday.

The progressive Massachusetts senator was reacting to the firing of federal prosecutor Preet Bharara Saturday after Bharara refused to submit his resignation. The call for Bharara’s resignation came Friday when Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked 46 of the remaining U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Barack Obama to submit their resignations. Every new presidential administration appoint new candidates to fill at least some of the 93 U.S. attorney districts nationwide.

This is nothing more than naked politics. Warren sees herself a leader of the “resistance” movement on the left.

She sees this as an opportunity, nothing more.

“How?”, she screams

Something about her, and her horse, too

    Warriors ride, squaws chew buffalo hides and walk.

      LOL!

      I was going to say, it wasn’t really a scream OR a howl, it was much more of a “Whoop”, and she did it while repeatedly putting the palm of her hand to her mouth and dancing around a campfire.

US Attorneys “serve at the pleasure of the President” which means they can be replaced for any or no reason at all. Nearly all political appointees are like that, something which the Left forgets about every time a Republican goes into the White House.

Was it a travois pony?

It could be that Preet Bharara was a Democrat.
It could be that Preet Bharara had a large ‘carbon footprint’.
It could be that Preet Bharara was one of the ‘top men’ studying the Ark of the Covenant.
It could be that Preet Bharara knows the location of Judge Crater and Jimmy Hoffa.
It could be that Preet Bharara was a Power Ranger.
It could be that Preet Bharara was at the grassy knoll.
It could be that Preet Bharara had ties to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
It could be that Preet Bharara had information on the kiln explosion death of Emily Dickinson College sophomore Fawn Liebowitz.

    It could be that Preet Bharara knew where Trump’s gold train was located.

      LOL You forgot your snark tag, and to tell us what you’re smoking! LOL

        First of all, I am handicapped. I am allergic to marijuana, but the lady at the DMV wouldn’t give me a placard. She said that wasn’t much of a handicap. I assured her that it damned sure was in the 70’s. Still no placard. smh

        Momma taught me not to make fun of people who have mental issues, but the democrats/liberals/commies are just so crazy that I can’t help myself. I really thought the gold train thing was so obvious that it didn’t need tagging, but I forget there are normal people who might not see the world quite the way I do. Say, maybe that could get me that placard.

Blah, blah, blah…

The proper resposne to this foolishness is a simple
Tweet from Prebus or Bannon (NOT Trump, this should be beneath his notice)

“Do we tell you whom you can hire for your staff positions? No. Butt out of our personnel decisions you old windbag.”

When she gives her expected rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth response,
Reply with:

“Blah, blah, blah. Sen. Elizabeth Warren: all flash, no substance.”

Troll, troll, troll. They’ll act more and more nuts, and lose more and more ground w/
The general public.

Trump realized that all of them were political hacks just waiting for an opportunity to stick a knife in his back.

Act like a political hack, get treated like a political hack.

Frankly Trump’s only real mistake was letting them stay on this long. He should have fired them over a month ago.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to Olinser. | March 12, 2017 at 9:44 pm

    At least this shows them up for what they are.

    Tired old Communist political hacks….who richly deserve to be hacked off!

Every President asks for the resignation of all political appointees, including U.S. Attorneys, when they take office. The last three Democrats to hold that office (Carter, Clinton, and Obama) did precisely the same thing! No one heard any war chants – err, howls of outrage – when that happened.

This is nothing more nor less than Fauxcahontas trying to position herself for the Dem nomination in 2020; however, if she doesn’t stop with the faux outrage over insubstantial puffery she may not make it. (On the other hand, I never expected someone with Hillary’s baggage to make it either!)

“{Trump] wants people [as US Attorneys] like AG Sessions,”

So do I.

Senator Warren depends on the stupid and people with short memories, as do most liberals.

At times, the fact that Senators like Warren, Murray, Boxer and Obama were elected makes me question this form of government. This is a select group of 100. Patty Murray is one of the senior Senators. Think about that for a while. Leadership used to be a desirable trait in a select group of, well, leaders. What happened?

Makes me glad that I am old and will not see the consequences.

    That and the senior citizen discount on coffee at Mickey D’s are the real upside of being a geezer. I do want to stick around and see My President kick ass. I see in him the same stubborn grit that Chesty had at the Chosin.

    “They are in front of us, behind us, and we are flanked on both sides by an enemy that outnumbers us 29:1. They can’t get away from us now!”

I saw a “Nevertheless She Persisted” bumper sticker today. Somebody is already cashing in on her cashing in.

“You can’t shut down ongoing investigations by career prosecutors.”
New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case?

Although there’s no evidence that Warren’s terribly bright, she’s certainly not so stupid that she believes that there’s a shred of substance to all this. That is, she knows as well as anybody that it’s all theatre.

So, why wallow in theatre? Is it evidence that the D’rats consider the American Experiment to be in the “bread and circuses” phase of its decline, and the theatrics are part of the circus act?

Or, more likely, is it just a sign that Lieawatha is electioneering … positioning herself as the Press’s “go-to” person for outrageous Progressive/Socialist commentary on the news of the day?

If so, what is she running for? Does she suspect that her position for the 2018 election is weak? Not even Massachusetts would consider her a “force for good” … about all she does is screech and obstruct. So she’ll have to try to turn that into her signature virtue.

But even then, her performance is weak. So she’ll do her best to block Trump’s nominees because … something about cleaning out the old Dem planted moles in the AG offices. But so what? She was planning to obstruct everything anyway. Her outrage knobs are already turned up to “11”—she can’t even pretend that they’ll go any higher.

a whoop?… tell me her running mate is howard dean… what a tribal council they’d have in the swamp…

Elizabeth Warren knows that….

Her constituents are dumber than a bag of hammers.

Heap big trouble, Fauxcahontas on warpath!

Rep. Elijah Cummings Suggests Trump May Have Fired Preet Bharara To Block Investigation

Just like Morn Joe, I usually don’t watch/read Huffy Post, but this one caught my attention. They just can’t accept that Trump won.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/elijah-cummings-preet-bharara_us_58c55fdfe4b0ed71826d3414?pnzoqd8fzxk98jjor&

She would be smokin in a burka!

“You can’t fire the rule of law, @realDonaldTrump. You can’t shut down ongoing investigations by career prosecutors.”

I was under the impression that the President can do exactly that. For that exact reason, people demand special prosecutors; once, they demanded independent counsels. Also, Congressional investigations and impeachment. But career prosecutors? Ah, yes, Presidents can shut down investigations by firing them. How is that news?

Warren’s gig is getting old and worn out. She is a pathetic, sorry and incorrigible hag. Her responses are so predictable and she actually believes her constituents are buying her exaggerated rhetoric. I know a lot of liberals in MA who are embarrassed by her actions and say they want her primarried out next cycle.

It’s amazing how easily she lies. I know most of the liberals lie to further their agenda, but her ability to speak out of both sides of her mouth is amazing. I’d hate to be her husband you would honestly never know if she was getting ready for a divorce.

Who is she listening to?

Elizabeth Warran is a lawyer, who has been involved in politics at the national level. Sh either knows, or should know, that turnover of political appointees is routine when the Presidency changes hands. That fact has even been reported recently by the various Democrat-controlled media!

So, why is she sacrificing her credibility with this hysteria? I had thought she was at least a competent lawyer who followed politics. Now I wonder if she has some sort of obligation to somebody stupid.

In many ways, the Clinton Campaign and the DNC ran stupid campaigns, that is, campaigns based on easily-exposed, outright lies, that backfired repeatedly. One of the Vanderbilt heirs laid this failure at the feet of John Podesta.

Considering how many of Podesta’s dirty tricks backfired, and also considering his ties to all of the Democratic media as well as his new status as a Washington Post columnist, I wonder if he is the source of this nonsense.

Cretins such as Warren, Schumer, Cardin, and Nelson (D-FLORIDA) are destroying the Democrat Party!

I doubt Warren is considered a very good politician by anybody. She is trying to appeal to a small part of the Democratic Party and even a smaller segment of the electorate. She is painting herself into a corner she will never be able to escape. She may well end up losing the Mass Democratic primary. Few people respect her.

Dear Sen. Warren,
You are not the “resistance.” You are not being persecuted; you are not being threatened with imprisonment; you are not being hunted down; you do not have jack-booted thugs kicking your door in; you are not on the run; you are not broadcasting your message from hidden locations.

You are not engaged in resistance. You are mere pitching an embarrassing hissy fit.

Get over yourself.

Princess Lie-a-wappa speak with forked tongue. She should be embarrassed to be running for 2020 so blatantly 51 days into the new administration while pledging to obstruct everything Trump, without any rational thought. Please make this woman go away!
In addition, if Hillary wants 2020, she probably still has the FBI files on her Super Delegates.

CandyOlbrych | March 13, 2017 at 5:19 pm

And people wonder why I am ashamed to admit I am from Massachusetts… She is a disgrace, and so is our attorney general Maura Healey.

    Dimsdale in reply to CandyOlbrych. | March 19, 2017 at 10:44 am

    I concur. It is almost bad enough to make you forget about the Kennedy Crime Family! She falsified her records, practiced law without a MA license, and likely usurped a deserving REAL “Indian” of a place in academia. She is our Rachel Donezal, Andrea Smith (UCal Riverside), Wade Churchill. All liberals trying to make a buck or get a leg up on the backs of minorities.

I’m very upset that the people on this blog are picking on our only “Native American” Senator. Is it the high cheekbones that bother you people.?

    Old0311 in reply to Jackie. | March 19, 2017 at 10:46 am

    I apologize for making fun of a direct descendant of Chief Whinny Skunk of the Maxipad Tribe. I must be a racist and a sexist. :<)

Having a relative spit on Cherokees during the Trial of Tears is insufficient transfer of DNA to claim Cherokee ancestry.
