    Manafort aint the first and he certainly won't be the last person to take a grenade for a President.
    No grenade. Trump will pardon him instantly.

    The Republican Senator from Tennessee injects a little humor into Sunday morning:

    Senator Bob Corker

    @SenBobCorker

    It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    THE DRUG INDUSTRY’S TRIUMPH OVER THE DEA - WP

    I'm posting this in case anyone hasn't seen the 60 minutes story. A really outrageous failure of government at many levels.

    I love the way the Washington Post, which has lost all sense of objectivity, tries to blame this whole mess on Congress.
    You do know that all this ish happened under Obama's DOJ, right? Trump is inheriting the problem that Obama's incompetent crew like Holder and Lynch allowed to happen. I guess they were too busy trying to prosecute and persecute Cops who were just trying to enforce the law. The 60 Minutes report made it clear that this garbage started back when the watchdogs were called off the scent of the drug distributors like McKesson in 2009. This whole thing was allowed to fester and grow under an incompetent administration. Now the piper is being paid, but those that perpetrated the mess aren't called to account.

    " The White House was equally unaware of the billís import when President Barack Obama signed it into law, according to interviews with former senior administration officials.

    Top officials at the White House and the Justice Department have declined to discuss how the bill came to pass."

    And...

    "Loretta E. Lynch, who was attorney general at the time, declined a recent interview request.

    Obama also declined to discuss the law. His spokeswoman, Katie Hill, referred reporters to Botticelliís statement."

    I do know that, and as those quotes you pasted show, so do the authors. Obama being unaware of the bill's impact, signing it anyway, then refusing to comment is damning and inexcusable. What more should the authors have said about Obama's involvement other than he signed something he didn't understand?
