Gangster government revisited

PowerLine, by Scott Johnson Posted By: Hazymac- Tue, 25 43 2017 11:43:02 GMT Michael Barone dubbed the Obama administration’s casual attitude toward fundamental legal niceties “gangster government.” Based on recently unsealed documents in the shareholder litigation over the government’s appropriation of the profits of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, New York Times business columnist Gretchen Morgenson provides one more striking case study: “In August 2012, the federal government abruptly changed the terms of the bailout provided to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the mortgage finance giants that had been devastated by the financial crisis. Instead of continuing to receive payments on the taxpayer assistance, Treasury officials decided to begin seizing all the profits

House Overwhelmingly Passes Bill Limiting Trump’s Power to Lift Sanctions on Russia

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill on Tuesday limiting President Donald Trump’s power to lift sanctions on Russia should the relationship between the two countries improve. Just three Republicans, Reps. Justin Amash (MI), John Duncan Jr. (TN) and Thomas Massie (KY), voted against the measure which passed by 419-3, meaning it has a veto proof majority. The legislation, which also imposes new sanctions on Russia, North Korea, and Iran, will now move to the Senate, where both parties have indicated a desire to revise the bill. “This is a strong, bipartisan bill that will increase the United States’ economic and political leverage,” Rep. Ed Royce, who heads the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told reporters Tuesday. As part of the legislation, America will impose sanctions on Russia for their alleged interference in the 2016 presidential campaign, as well their failure to implement a ceasefire in Ukraine. Further sanctions will also be placed on Iran and North Korea for their widespread support for terrorism and development of missile technologies. However, it remains unclear whether Trump will sign the bill, with newly appointed White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, telling reporters on Monday that although Trump generally supports the legislation, he won’t make a final decision until he
