Clearly, Trump is allowed to do anything that would be impeachable under Obama’s presidency
This, even while Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian influence has led to high profile indictments surrounding the 2016 presidential campaign.
Trump Administration Transferred $9.8 Million From FEMA To ICE

This summer, the Trump administration transferred nearly $10 million away from the agency that responds to disasters and emergencies, redirecting it toward one of President Trump’s top priorities — the deportation of undocumented residents of the U.S.
The funds transfer is prompting the Federal Emergency Management Agency to cut back on training, IT security and infrastructure investments, according to a document sent to Congress and released by Democratic Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Ore.
Merkley calls the transfer “reprehensible,” and immigration advocates say it highlights an alarming shift in priorities, but the White House is adamant that the redistribution of funds will have no harmful effect on the response to Hurricane Florence.
Trump's new plan to detain immigrant families indefinitely, explained

The Trump administration officially has a plan to detain families who enter the US without legal status for as long as it deems necessary — with no limit on how long children may be held with their parents. And it’s starting the process to turn that plan into official government practice.
The administration is proposing a regulation that would replace a court agreement from 1997, designed to protect immigrant children in government custody.
And making inane and patently false statements to boost his own ego and the expense of misinforming the broader public in typical charlatan-esque fashion.
This was quickly refuted by…wait is that…
… is that Fox News fact checking or presenting truth in reporting?! 🧐
Still not going to start relying on Fox News for the truth. I’d rather hear it from direct reports serving not just at the whims of the narcissist-in-chief but first and foremost the American people. Why don’t we go to the top White House Economic Advisor, Mr. Hassett?!!
Kevin Hassett, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, on Monday told reporters President Donald Trump tweeted an incorrect claim that US gross domestic product had surpassed the rate of unemployment for the first time in more than a century.
“The GDP Rate (4.2%) is higher than the Unemployment Rate (3.9%) for the first time in over 100 years!” Trump tweeted Monday morning.
Another look at the lack of leadership structure and organization that is not only demanded but expected of his office as president of the United States.
These impeachable offenses represent what has happened just in the last week. We still have prior offenses of advocating violence by undermining civil rights protection and equality under the law and directing law enforcement to investigate and prosecute his political adversaries for purposes that are unjustifiably unlawful.
But that is just a few of the glaring aspects of the vanity and insanity of whiteness that is blatantly dismissed and ignored under a majoritarian democracy designed with institutional callousness towards its citizenry.
Oh and then there is his conspiracy theories presented in his official capacity.
Trump states without evidence that Puerto Rico hurricane death count is a plot by Democrats
President Donald Trump on Thursday rejected the official conclusion that nearly 3,000 people died in Puerto Rico from…
“When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths. As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000,” Trump tweeted Thursday.
He added: “This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico.”
Raise billions of dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico?!?!?!
Is that how it works?
Additional money from Congress
So what happens when disaster recovery outstrips FEMA funding?
The task then falls to Congress to release more money, in the form of supplemental appropriations.
Lawmakers did just that on Sept. 8 when they approved more than $15 billion for additional Harvey relief. That includes the following:
$7.4 billion for FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund
$7.4 billion in Community Development Block Grant funding, which is administered through the Department of Housing and Urban Development
$450 million for the Small Business Administration’s Disaster Loan Program
In a Sept. 11 press briefing, White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert said a second appropriation would come at the end of September, and that federal officials would later seek a third and “perhaps a fourth” appropriation.
How the U.S. funds disaster recovery
As vast swaths of the country reel from the one-two punch of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the focus now is on efforts to…
They are called appropriations not fund raising. It is the federal government’s responsibility to protect and maintain its sovereignties.
