DC AG says Trump Could be Charged by City Prosecutors with Misdemeanor for Role in Insurrection


District of Columbia Attorney General, Karl Racine, warned that Trump could be Charged by City Prosecutors with "a misdemeanor, a Six-Month Jail Maximum," amid Fallout from the Deadly Insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. "Let it be known that the office of attorney general has a potential charge that it may utilize. The Law in DC, since 2011, makes it illegal, for statements of individuals that clearly encourage, cajole, and otherwise get people motivated to commit violence," he added.

The D.C. Attorney General Enforces Local Codes for the City. He does Not have as Robust Criminal Jurisdiction as the U.S. Department of Justice, which handles Prosecuting both Federal Crimes and the Major Crimes committed in Washington, DC. Federal Prosecutors are Leading the effort to Investigate and Prosecute Crimes related to the Violent Riot on January 6th that left Five Dead.

"The federal charge carries far more jail time," Racine said, adding that his office is "collaborating at a high level with the federal prosecutors. (Trump's) conduct prior to the mob storming the Capitol is relevant. I think his conduct during that time and immediately thereafter is also relevant," the Attorney General said.

Of the Insurrectionists who Attacked the Capitol, Racine said "every single person" at the Trump rally that day is "being reviewed" in what he called a "thorough investigation" of the Capitol insurrection.

The Investigation will include "talking to people who were at that rally" as well as People who Stormed the Capitol and "went inside," he said. Racine also said during his Interview that his Office "will be judicious with whether to charge and who to charge," but noted, "it's all about the words that are utilized ... it's all about the dynamics and the environment and frankly the energy."

He said his Office has Jurisdiction to pursue Offenses including: Weapons, Ammunition, Curfew Violations, and Inciting Violence.

In a Friday News Conference, FBI Washington Field Office, Assistant Director-in-Charge, Steven D'Antuono, explained the FBI's approach to all Tips regarding Insurrectionists. "Your tips are helping us investigate people on a variety of federal charges," he said, providing Information on how to submit Tips.

In a Direct Statement to Insurrectionists who have yet to be Identified, D'Antuono continued: "To those of you who took part in the violence, here's something you should know. Every FBI field office in the country is looking for you. As a matter of fact, even your friends and family are tipping us off. So you might want to consider turning yourself in instead of wondering when we're going to come knocking on your door, because we will."

Though Not a Criminal Case, Trump has already been Impeached by the House for his Role Inciting the Riot. The Senate will begin a Trial soon that could Result in a Conviction that might also lead to Trump being Barred from ever again Holding a Federal Office.

Federal Prosecutors also said earlier this month that they are looking at Everyone involved in the Riot, including the Role Trump and Lawmakers played in Inciting it.

Justice Democrats Endorse Nina Turner for Ohio House Seat


The Progressive Group Justice Democrats is throwing their Support behind former Ohio State Sen. Nina Turner, a Top ally of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, in her Campaign to Succeed Ohio Rep. Marcia Fudge, who is poised to join Biden's Cabinet.

Fudge was nominated by Biden in December to lead the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Pending her Confirmation, the heavily Democratic Northeast Ohio District will hold a Special Election later this year.

The Race to fill Fudge's Seat has already attracted Two other Candidates: Cuyahoga County Democratic Party Chairwoman Shontel Brown, who is also a Member of the County Council, and former Cleveland City Councilor Jeff Johnson, and is shaping up as the First Major Test of the Left's Electoral Power in the Biden era. Justice Democrats' Endorsement will brighten the spotlight and add New Grassroots Fundraising might to Turner's Bid, which already has the backing of Sanders and a Number of Leading Progressive Organizations.

It could also Help Consolidate Progressives behind Turner with Former Ohio Congressman and Cleveland Mayor Dennis Kucinich, a Two-time Presidential Candidate, saying he might consider a Run. Justice Democrats, which Recruited New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ahead of her 2018 Victory and led the Charge in 2020 for Freshman Reps. Cori Bush of Missouri, Jamaal Bowman of New York, and Marie Newman of Illinois, all of whom ousted Democratic Incumbents on their way to Congress, recently began Recruiting Candidates for the 2022 Election Cycle.

"We are so proud to support Nina Turner because she has stood with our progressive movement since Day 1," Justice Democrats Executive Director Alexandra Rojas said in a Statement. "She has a strong public service record of fighting to uplift working-class people and deliver justice. We know Senator Turner will help create a mission-driven team in Congress to deliver relief during this pandemic and fight for Medicare for All, a Green New Deal, racial justice, and getting big money out of politics."

A Former Cleveland City Councilor who was Appointed to the State Senate in 2008 and Reelected in 2010 before Losing a race for Secretary of State Four years later, Turner was endorsed by Sanders shortly after she entered the Race. "I've gotten to know Nina Turner over the last five years. She deeply cares for working families and she has the heart to be an effective, unwavering fighter for them in Congress," Sanders said in December.

Turner led Our Revolution, the Outside Group that grew out of Sanders' 2016 Campaign, before taking a Leave of Absence to become a Co-Chair of his 2020 Run. She also served as a Delegate for Former President Barack Obama at the 2008 and 2012 Democratic National Conventions.

California Rep. Ro Khanna, Bush, and Minnesota Attorney General, Keith Ellison, have also endorsed Turner.

Biden Aims for Quick Approval of National Security Picks


The Threat from Extremists has Increased the Sense of Urgency for Lawmakers, and Top Senate Democrats including Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, are urging their Republican Colleagues to quickly Confirm Biden's National Security Nominees.

With an Impeachment Trial looming, and the Senate Majority set to Change Hands in the next couple days, when the dust settles after Joe Biden’s Inauguration as President, Democrats are hoping he won’t have a Totally Acting Cabinet.

Senior Democrats are optimistic that Biden will see at least Two of his Top National Security Officials confirmed either on Inauguration Day or shortly thereafter, particularly after the siege of the Capitol last week by Rioters and Extremists. That would allow Biden to at least claim Equal Treatment to Trump, who had his Homeland Security and Defense Secretaries confirmed on Inauguration Day, followed days later by his CIA Director.

Democrats also hope to make Janet Yellen the new Treasury Secretary and Tony Blinken the new Secretary of State in the coming days. But they say the minimum bar should be confirming Alejandro Mayorkas to the Department of Homeland Security and retired Gen. Lloyd Austin to the Defense Department to beef up National Security.

“Obviously we need a Department of the Treasury and other key positions, certainly. But in terms of the security of the country, there’s a great sense of urgency,” said Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), the No. 4 Democratic Leader. Republicans “should absolutely be working with us to do at minimum, the confirmations that we supported for President Trump.”

Mayorkas, Austin, Blinken, Yellen, and Director of National Intelligence nominee Avril Haines all have Hearings Today. Haines is another Prospect for Quick Confirmation given the Politics and Mood in Congress about the Security Breach in the Capitol.

“I would hope that our Republican colleagues would join us in putting the secretary of Defense, secretary of Homeland Security, secretary of State, attorney general and others in office ASAP,” Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Sunday. “When President Trump was president on the first day, both Defense and Homeland Security were put into office. We Democrats supported that happening, we need cooperation.”

In the Senate, any One Senator can Object to Quick Votes. When Schumer becomes Majority Leader, he can Force Votes himself on Cabinet Nominees, but each would take several days. Democrats can confirm Nominees in the Senate Unilaterally once they have the Majority.

While Austin is popular in both Parties, his Confirmation is more Difficult because he needs a Waiver to Serve as Defense Secretary since he has Not been out of the Military for the Minimum of Seven years. The House must Pass that Waiver before he can be Confirmed, and Democratic Leaders there say it’s a Top Priority.

“The internal security threat the U.S. faces right now is serious. We need a Secretary of Defense on the job immediately,” tweeted Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), who explained he Vvoted against Mattis’ Waiver but supports Austin’s because there’s “simply much less reason to be fearful of a recently retired general running DoD under Biden.”

Confirmation of any Cabinet Officials could be tough on Inauguration Day for a variety of factors. Three New Democratic Senators, Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock of Georgia plus Alex Padilla of California, must be sworn in. And Kamala Harris must be the Vice President to give Democrats a 50/50 Seat Majority with Harris breaking Ties. All those Events should be Official by late Wednesday or Thursday.

The Committees and the overall Senate must be Organized by Schumer and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Those Negotiations are ongoing, though they will likely follow much of the Precedent from the last 50/50 Majority 20 years ago. And heightening the intrigue, Speaker Nancy Pelosi has yet to send Trump’s Impeachment Articles over to the Senate.

An Impeachment Trial could Preempt other Business unless McConnell and Schumer strike an Agreement on a Schedule for Biden’s Confirmations and the Trial split the days Sessions.

So much of how they proceed is about whether or not Mitch McConnell wants to Help get the Personnel in place for the Security of the Country and want to work with Schumer to move forward.

Trump Signs Three Executive Orders


Trump issued Three Executive Orders Monday. All appear to be Limited.

- Makes it easier for Judges, Prosecutors, and Law Enforcement Officers to obtain Permits for Concealed Firearms by Cutting "red tape" in the Application Process. Local Jurisdictions determine Gun Regulations, and it's Unclear if Judges, Prosecutors, and Law Enforcement Officers, face Undue Burdens.

- To Protect Americans from facing Unwarranted Criminal Punishment for Unintentional Violations of Regulations. Those kinds of Issues, however, are largely Decided by Judges and Appeals Courts in Individual Cases.

- Trump Order seeks to establish a new "Garden of American Heroes" though Congress has yet to Sign-Off on the idea. In the Order, the Trump Administration listed Dozens of Names of Americans who could have Statues in the Garden. They ranged from Christopher Columbus to Kobe Bryant; Jazz Pioneer Louis Armstrong to Poet Emily Dickinson; "Jeopardy" host Alex Trebek to Former Slave and Women's Rights Activist Sojourner Truth; and President Franklin Roosevelt and Eleanor Roosevelt.

Trump’s Census Chief Quits After Controversy on Immigrant Count


Trump’s Census Bureau Director Resigned Monday after Months of Controversy over the Bureau’s Treatment of Undocumented Immigrants in the Decennial Count. Census Director, Steven Dillingham, said that he’s Retiring from Federal Service when Biden assumes the Presidency on Jan. 20th. His Term was set to end in December 2021.

His Departure comes amid heightened Scrutiny over his handling of the 2020 Census and Questions around whether he Pressured Political Appointees to push through a Population Count that Excludes Undocumented Immigrants before Trump leaves Office.

Last week, Dillingham said he’d asked Oolitical Appointees to “stand down” in their efforts to Rush the Count. His Announcement came after the Commerce Department’s Inspector General launched a Probe into whether Census Counters were Short-Cutting Data Quality Standards.

Excluding Undocumented Immigrants from that Count would likely give Republicans an Advantage in Congressional Elections, and the Electoral College, for the Next Decade. Biden had signaled he would likely Shelve the Effort as soon as he’s Inaugurated.

Trump Ordered the Census Bureau in 2019 to produce a “complete and accurate data on the number of citizens, non-citizens, and illegal aliens in the country.” He followed that up last year with a Directive to use those Numbers to Produce the Constitutionally required Count used to Apportion Congressional Districts among the States and State Federal Funding.

Dillingham, who took Office in January 2019, said in a Bblog post that he expects Biden will have “complete confidence” in the Census when it’s Complete. “My planned departure would have occurred earlier, but I received requests to continue serving during and after the transition, including from a President-Elect Biden transition official,” he wrote.

He said that under “other circumstances, I would be honored to serve President-elect Biden just as I served the past five presidents.”

Dillingham added: “We have just seen how late changes and directives, competing and divisive political campaigns, and a divided electorate can negatively impact public trust and perceptions.”

The Census was cut Short do to, Covid-19, and many Citizens and Non-Citizens, were Never Counted by the Door-to-Door Counting methord.

NY-22 Congressional Seat Could Come Down to Non-Updated DMV Voter Registrations


Who will Represent New York's 22nd Congressional District may come down to whether nearly 70 People who Filled-Out a Voter Registration Form through the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), but Not Sent to the Board of Elections, that I discussed in my last post, were really Registered to Vote.

The Legal Teams representing Claudia Tenney (R) and Incumbent Anthony Brindisi (D) have filed Briefs with State Supreme Court Justice, Scott DelConte, outlining how they believe he should Rule on the Paper Ballots filled out by more than 60 Voters. Brindisi’s Filings mention 69 such Voters and Tenney’s 64.

It emerged during previous Hearings in the Court Review of the Ballot Counting that Oneida County Election Commissioners did Not include those Ballots because they considered the Voters Not Registered on time.

Commissioners and their Deputies said they received Registration Applications but did Not Process them as they were Overwhelmed with a flood of Absentee Ballot Requests during the COVID-19 Pandemic, carrying out recent Changes in the Law regarding Registration Process, and preparing for the First Major General Election with 10 days of Early Voting at Multiple Polling Sites, as well as Preparing for Election Day.

Whether they should have, may decide whether Tenney’s lead of 29 Votes in Unofficial Tallies holds up.

DelConte heard Oral Arguments Friday, and set Wednesday as the Deadline to File more Briefs, with Final Arguments Two days later, all in Oswego, where he is based.

The Issue largely deals with Provisional, or Affidavit, Ballots that People who are Not allowed to Vote normally, may Fill-Out if they are told at the Polls that their Names are Not in the Official Electronic Poll Books, or Printed Lists of Registered Voters at a Polling Place.

The Brindisi Team argued in Briefs filed Thursday that a Provision of State Election Law specifically says a Candidate can Contest a Refusal to Canvass, or Count, Affidavit Ballots Rejected by People whose Names are Not in the Poll Records.

The Lawyers maintain, and Tenney’s Representatives acknowledge, that many more, as many as 2,400, Voters Filled-Out Registration Forms that the Oneida County Elections Office did Not Process in time to get their Names on the Poll Books. How to handle All of them is beyond the Judge’s Authority under Election Law, Brindisi’s Team acknowledged, but they maintain he clearly has the Authority to Require the Counting of those that Brindisi’s Campaign objected to Leaving-Out.

The Applications should be considered Complete because the DMV did Transfer the Completed Electronic Applications before the Required 20 days ahead of Election Day, the Legal Team said in their Filing, and the Law says Voters should Not be Prevented from Voting through No Fault of their own. “The sole issue with the ballots is the Oneida County Board’s failure to timely process voter registration records and update the poll books.”

Tenney’s Team maintains, however, that doing so would amount to Retroactively Registering Voters and should Not be Allowed for several reasons. For one, Only Voters themselves have Standing to have a Judge Register them, and it must be sought on Election Day. Further, they maintain, the Court of Appeals, New York’s Highest Court, has Ruled that a Judge’s relevant Authority is Only over Canvassing, not Voter Registration.

When considering which Ballots were Improper and should be Excluded, an Elections Board is acting in Legal Terms as a Board of Canvassers but Registration is Done by a Board of Elections outside the purview of the Court’s Authority, the Lawyers wrote.

Brindisi also did Not ask for Correcting Orders in his Team’s Original Court Filings and thus Procedurally can’t now, Tenney’s Team maintains.

They also argue that Brindisi and his Lawyers are Cherry-Picking Ballots from DMV-Registration Voters, and noted that DelConte noticed in previous Hearings that Not All affected Ballots remain in question. “This Court observed that the over 60 affidavit ballots that Respondent harvested in the challenge process share one trait - the Respondent’s political affiliation. Also, they did Not Call the Board of Elections to ‘push through’ their application, and not one went to an available judge for an order to cast a vote. It would be wrong for this Court to ignore the statutory design.”

Tenney’s Legal Team also expressed Sympathy for the Board of Elections and Staff. “Many factors this last election season nearly crippled the already over-worked staff at the County Boards of Elections, especially in Oneida County. Clerk Kelly Comeskey testified that the Oneida Board faced a limited number of resources such as understaffing, the influx of paperwork, multiple Executive Orders and the difficulty having multiple employees in the office due to COVID19 restrictions.”

The Election remains the Only one in the House of Representatives not Settled. Brindisi, who Defeated then First-Term Incumbent Tenney in 2018 by fewer than 4,500 Votes, ended his tTrm officially when the New Congress was sworn in Jan. 3rd. The Case has also prompted Calls for Improved Guidance for Boards of Elections and how Commissioners are Chosen.

DelConte has Chastised Election Officials in many of the District’s Eight Counties over how they handled Contested Ballots, noting some Failed to Properly Mark Ballot Envelopes as Election Law proscribed, though some Commissioners have said they Interpreted previous Directives from Courts to Forbid that.

The 22nd Congressional District of New York includes: Utica, Rome, Cortland, and Binghamton. Binghamton University, Hamilton College, Colgate University, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, and Utica College are located in the District. All of Chenango, Cortland, Madison, and Oneida Counties, and parts of Broome, Herkimer, Oswego, and Tioga Counties.

With All the Mistakes the Boards of Elections created, I think the Election should be Re-Run for Voters who Registered for the Nov. 3rd, 2020 Election.
