Nadler responds to DOJ's threat: "This kind of obstruction is dangerous"

Nadler responds to the DOJ: "This is, of course, not how executive privilege works. The White House waived these privileges long ago ... The Department's legal arguments are without credibility, merit, or legal or factual basis. Worse, this kind of obstruction is dangerous."

Trump administration wants to allow debt collectors to call 7 times a week and text, email as much as they want

https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/05/07/trump-administration-wants-allow-debt-collectors-call-times-week-text-email-much-they-want/

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau on Tuesday proposed allowing debt collectors to call consumers seven times in a week as part of the first major update to industry rules in more than 40 years.

Under the proposal, after debt collectors talk to the consumer once, they would not be allowed to call again for another week.

The $11.5 billion debt-collection industry, which has been anxiously awaiting the rules, is likely to balk at the cap. Industry officials have argued there is no evidence such limits would be helpful.

The proposal also clears the way for debt collectors to contact consumers through text and email, which the industry has been clamoring for. That technology was not contemplated under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act in 1977, but some consumers and debt collectors prefer the ease of responding to an email on their own time to answering the phone, a senior CFPB official said.

There is no limit on how many times a debt collector can contact someone by text or email, though the consumers could tell them to stop.

Cohen's right. He's going to prison for three years for crimes that benefited Trump.



ormer Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen is due to report to prison on Monday — and CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin said that he’s understandably furious that he’s being sent to jail while the man who allegedly ordered him to commit crimes still gets to be president.

In dissecting the crimes that Cohen pleaded guilty to, Toobin pointed out that many of them were done for Trump’s benefit — and yet Cohen is the only one who has paid a legal price so far.

“The remarkable thing about Michael Cohen is, if you look at his crimes — and they are real crimes — all of them, with one exception, were for the benefit of Donald Trump,” he said. “He didn’t get anything out of the illegal campaign contributions, out of his false testimony to Congress, his bank fraud to get money to pay off Stormy Daniels. His tax fraud is a separate issue.”

Taken all together, Toobin said, Cohen would be right to feel that he’s going to jail for another man’s misdeeds.

“The idea that Michael Cohen is going to prison for three years when Donald Trump is president of the United States, no one else has been prosecuted for that stuff, you can see why he’s a pissed-off dude,” he said.

Trump: "They have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion)..."

Look for the other thread I posted in GD...Trump re-tweeted Falwell Jr. demanding that two years be added to his first term as "payback reparations" for the Mueller investigation.

Donald J. Trump
@realDonaldTrump

Despite the tremendous success that I have had as President, including perhaps the greatest ECONOMY and most successful first two years of any President in history, they have stollen two years of my (our) Presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.....
