A book by a former top federal prosecutor offers new details about how the Justice Department under President Donald J. Trump sought to use the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan to support Mr. Trump politically and pursue his critics " even pushing the office to open a criminal investigation of former secretary of state John Kerry.


Fox News Sunday" host Eric Shawn on Sunday wondered aloud what Trump could have done with documents seized by the FBI during a raid at Mar-a-Lago on Aug. 8. "More questions are being raised this morning. Did former President Trump try to sell or share the highly classified material to the Russians or to the Saudis or others?" Shawn asked his fellow panelists.

FTA:


Self said that she verified with her clients who had wrong addresses and they all said they told agents they had no address in the U.S.

"When you look at them, there is no way that any of these people would get the addresses they did," said Self, who again said migrants had addresses in places like Seattle, Utah or Tacoma, Washington. "The addresses that were provided were for refugee office buildings ... they weren't intake centers."

"Whether it's nefarious, inept, lazy or just, I don't know. But when you're dealing with people I think it's important to cross your T's and dot your I's," she added.

The claim from attorneys that DHS had been giving false addresses drew attention from some Republicans, including U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, who tweeted on Saturday that he would be requesting answers from DHS. In a statement to the Herald/McClatchy DC, Rubio said he had not yet received any response.

"DHS refuses to answer simple questions about what happened and why. President Biden's policies created this crisis, and his administration needs to be held accountable for every part of the response," Rubio said.


Wow, so that's now Biden's fault as well. Whelp, wouldn't have been had DeSantis and Abbott not persuaded folks to board a plane/bus on false pretenses. Again and again, "But this language was not translated into Spanish."

Whoops! Deliberate stupidity you say?

"As we have said, coordination with any receiving city is imperative for the safety of migrants and the communities receiving them," a DHS spokesperson said. "DHS, including ICE and CBP, has not been involved with these recent actions. Unlike these governors, we are not in the business of using vulnerable men, women, and children as props for a political stunt."

Whelp, at least BELLY is on the same page.

And who did that to them?

Some ---- named Perla, apparently. If not her, someone else did, as that's part of the lawsuit:

Well, we are still in the midst of providing our full range of legal assistance. First of all, individuals need help with their individual immigration cases. One of the truly appalling parts of this whole incident is that people are now far away from where they need to be in order to appear for immigration hearings. They were told again by folks who were pretending to offer assistance that the immigration issues would be taken care of. When they were concerned about leaving Texas, where they knew that they had to go for an immigration hearing, some as early as Monday, that was a deep concern to our clients. And they were told they didn't have to worry about that. Now, of course, they do, and we are helping them to resolve those issues.

"They were told, You have a hearing in San Antonio, but don't worry, we'll take you to Boston,'" said Ivn Espinoza-Madrigal, the executive director for Lawyers for Civil Rights Boston. He said dozens of the migrants had told his team they only had been informed midair that they were going to land in tony Martha's Vineyard rather than Boston.

I'm just as curious as you are, however, it's clear someone from DeSantis or Abbott's camp were misleading these folks knowing doing so would impede them from attending their asylum hearings, more than likely leading to deportation.

But yeah, you know, nothing for you to worry your little head about.
