Former President Barack Obama has begun his own mission to tear down the Trump regime. His team of lawyers are currently working on what is being referred to as “the worst case scenario” in order to put an end to Trump’s fascist administration if they carry on in their abuse of power.
Their team is called ‘United To Protect Democracy’, and is the same team that helped the former president’s administration abide by the rules of conduct.
While other Trump opponents focus on taking the president to court over the travel ban and deportations, the new group plans to drill into issues that aren’t already hitting the headlines, like potential intervention in and intimidation of regulatory agencies by West Wing staff.
“When people hear concerns about democracies declining into authoritarianism, they expect that moment to come in a singular thunderclap where everyone can see that this is the time,” said Ian Bassin, who’s leading the new group. “In reality, often times, democracies decline over a period of years that happen through a series of much smaller steps.”
They started by submitting 50 Freedom of Information Act requests this week that they believe will confirm their suspicions. The plan is to bring what they find to reporters, build it into pressure for congressional oversight with the help of a campaign director they’ll hire, and, as necessary, to file lawsuits.
They’re also hoping to establish themselves as a base for government employees worried about ethics violations — up to and including becoming whistle-blowers — and are hoping that their website can become a resource.
White House press secretary Sean Spicer, responding to the group’s formation, said, “This administration has raised the level of ethics training and oversight to a new level compared to the practices of the previous administration.”
The group of lawyers have already raised 1.5 million dollars for their operational budget and continue to grow. They are sure Trump and his arrogance will continue to carry on disregarding the ethics boundaries put in place to guard against power abuse.
Sean Spicer lied through his mouth once again out of fear. Trump and his cronies show no signs of bending to the will of the people.
