A high-ranking official at the Interior Department’s Bureau of Reclamation has repeatedly shared conspiracy theories on his personal Facebook page, a review by TPM found, including posts calling the students who survived the Parkland school shooting “Nazis” and alleging the massacre was a staged false flag.

Kevin Sabo, who was originally hired for a career position in budget analysis at the DOI in 2016, was promoted to the political role of acting chief of the Office of Congressional and Legislative Affairs at the Bureau of Reclamation when the Trump administration came into power in 2017...

(H)is career took a downturn in 2000, when he was convicted of “attempted malicious wounding” for cutting the brakes on his ex-girlfriend’s car, causing her to crash. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Because of the felony, Sabo was disbarred in DC in 2003. He petitioned to be readmitted to the bar in DC in 2011 and was denied — in part because he pleaded guilty to another criminal charge in 2009 that involved taking items from a Home Depot without paying for them and attempting to return them. The charge was “larceny by false pretenses...”

Paul Ryan won’t run again. Little weasel.

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics...l-ryan/557732/

One of Washington’s best-wired Republicans said:

“This is a Titanic, tectonic shift. … This is going to make every Republican donor believe the House can’t be held.”

Yes!

Paul Ryan’s Sad Legacy

Under Obama, he was hailed as the deficit-warrior of Washington. Under Trump, he oversaw the greatest peacetime growth in deficit spending in modern American history.

A Louisiana lawyer nominated by President Trump for a federal judgeship refused to affirm whether she's opposed to school segregation during a congressional hearing Wednesday.

Wendy Vitter, an outspoken anti-abortion activist and counsel for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans, went before the Senate Judiciary Committee for a confirmation hearing to become the district judge of the Eastern District of Louisiana.

"Do you believe that Brown v. Board of Education was correctly decided?" Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) asked Vitter, referencing the landmark 1954 Supreme Court decision that ruled racial segregation in public schools unconstitutional.

"I don't mean to be coy," Vitter replied, "but I think I get into a difficult area when I start commenting on Supreme Court decisions, which are correctly decided and which I may disagree with."

Vitter, who was given a unanimous "unqualified" rating by the American Bar Association, was also grilled by lawmakers over her staunch anti-abortion views.

The 56-year-old nominee once accused Planned Parenthood of "killing over 150,000 females a year," seemingly without any proof to back it up.

"Do you stand by that statement?" Blumenthal asked her.

Vitter avoided the question ...

Donald Trump Takes Out Paul Ryan, and ‘It’s Going to Be a Civil War’

"The news that Paul Ryan is retiring from Congress was received by grim-faced members of the GOP caucus finally realizing what they’ve done, and what’s coming. Ryan pulled the ripcord Wednesday after a 19-year career in Congress, declaring he would leave Washington at the end of his current term to spend more time with his existential angst over what he let Donald Trump do to our country.
The happy talk about holding the House is over. The spin for the press, the rubes, and the donor class just came to a shrieking halt. Nancy Pelosi is in her crone cavern, cackling with glee, knowing that the Democrats are now in play in almost 80 congressional seats. The general of the House Republican army just announced he’s leaving the field just as the tide of political war looks most grim." Daily Beast

Speaker Pelosi has a nice ring to it. (grin)

I find that I enjoy NeverTrumper writers more than liberal polemists. Their visceral hatred of the Dotard is refreshing.
