Trump junta hypocrisy too staggering to tolerate.

Justice Department’s Corporate Crime Watchdog Resigns, Saying Trump Makes It Impossible To Do Job

“Trying to hold companies to standards that our current administration is not living up to was creating a cognitive dissonance that I could not overcome,” Chen wrote. “To sit across the table from companies and question how committed they were to ethics and compliance felt not only hypocritical, but very much like shuffling the deck chair on the Titanic. Even as I engaged in those questioning and evaluations, on my mind were the numerous lawsuits pending against the President of the United States for everything from violations of the Constitution to conflict of interest, the ongoing investigations of potentially treasonous conducts, and the investigators and prosecutors fired for their pursuits of principles and facts.

Meanwhile, administration officials have portrayed his decision as one made out of concern for his wife’s poor health.

Of course they did. All bullshit all the time.

Dear General, you can’t go bombing the CIA’s trainees. That would be counterproductive.  You are a pawn with stars. Your little war is a show, a farce, a propaganda offensive to sell the idea that the US doesn’t like terrorists, when in fact your own bosses have helped create them.
