There were rumors that US Attorney Preet Bharara made files available to NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman before he was fired. We know that Schneiderman hired a key assistant to Bharara when the firing went down.

NY AG has opened an investigation on the Eric Trump Foundation - discussed here a week ago or so: [www.politico.com]

any AG that takes the BIG trump down is gonna be a superstar - if the conviction is there, they WILL go for it

They'll come away with nothing. These kinds of prosecutions take time, and time is something AGs don't have because as soon as they announce prosecution of this sort the defense lawyers will pile on the delays while dark money funnels in against them or their elected appointers (I'm not sure whether all state AGs are elected or some might be appointed by governors or legislatures.)

I remember all too well how this played out in the Microsoft anti-trust lawsuit. "We don't know how much money we make from Office and Windows seperately" they claimed. Then "IE is integrated into the OS and couldn't be removed!" MS perjured. University prof came up with an IE uninstaller, MS stalled even with their pants down caught red-handed they escalated the case from district to appellate to supreme court, and in that time most of the state AGs who had joined the DoJ's suit were replaced in elections or ended up settling for a lot less.

Ironically, it worked out to paralyze Microsoft's competitive direction just long enough to misfire on the internet and open source revolutions, allowing Amazon and Google to grow, as-yet-unconceived forces like FaceBook and Twitter to develop, and Apple to resurge (remember how Apple took that $150 million lifeblood injection - it was a win-win at the time because despite also having MS redhanded stealing QuickTime code Jobs and crew knew it'd take forever to go to trial and Apple could have gone under in that time!)

Microsoft's been stuck in one bad acquisition after another poor business decision for the better part of two decades now as a result of that attempt at misdirecting the courts.

So hopefully the best possible outcome is that in a decade's time freedom will truly reign in this land, but in the meanwhile we will have to be brave as we weather the dark storms ahead.

Just remember THAT'S not NOTHING. Yes, resistance is a difficult road. Yes, we may not get a full or satisfactory vindication. Nevertheless anything that pulls us away from the looming autocracy should be counted as a success, however small.

Well, here was an interesting analysis of how Donnie used the US legal system as a weapon for decades.

Oh.. and a clear warning about what kind of Pres he actually showed up as. The predictions were flawless.
