:funny:

This corrupt son of a bitch wanted to run the justice department. Although to be fair, I suppose he wouldn't be much worse than Sessions.

Pruitt directly asked Trump to replace Sessions with him
Embattled Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt directly appealed to President Donald Trump this spring to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions and let him run the Department of Justice instead, according to three people familiar with the proposal. In an Oval Office conversation with Trump, Pruitt offered to temporarily replace Sessions for 210 days under the Vacancies Reform Act, telling the President he would return to Oklahoma afterward to run for office.

18 states have trigger laws that will ban abortion the minute the Supreme Court decides it is a state issue after all
https://www.thecut.com/2018/06/trump-su ... lgbtq.html
Trump has explicitly stated in the past that he hoped to appoint a judge who would overturn the landmark abortion-rights decision Roe v. Wade. At the final presidential debate, when asked if he would strike down Roe, he responded, “Well, if we put another two or perhaps three justices on, that’s really what’s going to be — that will happen. And that’ll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court.”

Some of the worst offenders include William Pryor of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, who has called Roe v. Wade the “worst abomination in the history of constitutional law.” Amy Coney, who serves on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, once said in 2013, “The framework of Roe essentially permitted abortion on demand, and Roe recognizes no state interest in the life of a fetus.”

Many of the candidates’ records on LGBTQ issues are equally abysmal. After the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, Don Willett of the Supreme Court of Texas mocked the landmark decision, tweeting that he “could support recognizing the constitutional right to marry bacon.” In her 2015 brief, Britt Grant of the Supreme Court of Georgia argued that there was no constitutional right to same-sex marriage equality.

And while Trump has not yet announced his nominee, anti-abortion groups are already celebrating.

Abortion rights groups plan massive protest:

Progressive groups, however, are casting a wide net with their advocacy, and are planning to target red-state Democratic senators as well.

“We have a 50-state strategy,” said Planned Parenthood national organizing director Kelley Robinson, whose group tallied more than 150 events focused on the Supreme Court held during this week’s congressional recess.

And the left isn’t limiting its firepower to next week’s in-state mobilization campaign.

Demand Justice is aiming to spend $5 million on its own TV, digital, radio and mobilization efforts against Trump’s Supreme Court pick, focusing on Collins’ and Murkowski’s home states as well as Indiana, North Dakota and West Virginia, states where moderate Democratic senators voted last year to confirm Trump-tapped Justice Neil Gorsuch.
