Friday was not a very good day for the Trump administration.
In addition to a former ambassador testifying before Congress, painting a rather unflattering picture of Trump’s foreign policy, the federal courts have once again dealt this president a massive blow.
In all, five decisions were handed down that went against Trump.
Court’s Limiting Presidential Power
Can anyone honestly remember a president being challenged so frequently in the courts?
Even more important, can anyone remember an administration being derailed so regularly by the courts?
Within minutes, the Trump administration was dealt a succession of blows that have all but crippled its efforts to deliver on immigration promises as well as giving a boost to House investigations into the President.
First, Trump lost his appeal to keep his tax records away from House Democrats.
Soon thereafter, Trump lost decisions in four different states (New York, Texas, Washington, and California) related to immigration policies, including the reallocation of budgetary funding to construct the border wall.
More Bad News
As if that was not bad enough, the Trump administration lost yet another key player in the cabinet.
Friday night, Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan turned his resignation into the President.
While this resignation was not exactly unexpected, the timing is what really hurts Trump, as it gives the appearance of a key member of his administration who is bailing on him.
The former U.S. Ambassador for Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, gave her much-anticipated deposition on Friday.
During her testimony, she blistered the administration for removing her due to what she deemed were “unfounded” accusations being made against her.
Yovanovitch stated, “Although I understand that I served at the pleasure of the President, I was nevertheless incredulous that the US government chose to remove an ambassador based, as best as I can tell, on unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives.”
Her testimony has apparently energized more anti-Trumpers from within to come forward, as several outlets have reported that more whistleblower complaints against the administration are imminent.
While all this is going on, not a single word is being said about the possible influence used by Joe Biden to help his son… the story is simply being ignored by the media.
