View from the left: Prosecutors are going to obliterate Trump and his massive criminal enterprise

Taken together, colluding with Russians and engaging in a conspiracy to silence women in order to steal the election would be plenty illegal and impeachable offenses. Yet they are just the beginning of the long drawn out nightmare that has begun to beset Donald Trump. We saw a virtual torrent of headlines this week related to Trump's longtime fixer and lawyer Michael Cohen, his chief media maker David Pecker who oversees the National Enquirer property among others, an elaborate hush-money scheme to squelch negative press, false testimony to Congress run through the White House, a Russian agent who infiltrated GOP circles and made contact with Trump, and the Trump inaugural committee falling under federal scrutiny for misusing funds, some« of which went to Trump's own businesses. At the heart of every one of those salacious and potentially illegal scandals is Trump himself.  And yet despite the velocity and volume of the seedy Trump revelations bearing down on America, this week's reports haven't even begun to capture the scope of the criminality that will ultimately define Trump, his presidency, and the empire he built. As former federal prosecutor and NBC legal analyst Daniel Goldman explained on Thursday, collusion appears to be moving to the back burner in terms of the universe of criminality surrounding Trump—which isn't to suggest that collusion didn't transpire. »This might really be a much larger scheme related to sanctions and a massive cover up of really unparalleled proportions,” Goldman explained Thursday on MSNBC. “When you look at Michael Cohen coordinating with the White House to lie to Congress and you look at Michael Flynn lying about his transition contacts related to sanctions to Russia,« Goldman said, »it all starts at the top and trickles down and that's how criminal conspiracies work." But actually, that's just one bucket of problems for Trump—the one that relates more urgently to his political survival and presidency. The other bucket is the work of his life—his family business, the Trump Organization. And that got a wakeup call this week when incoming New York Attorney General Letitia James gave her first interview and outlined an investigatory agenda that will dissect every area of Trump's Manhattan-based business: Trump's real estate holdings, the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians, any government subsidies Trump has received, any violations of the emoluments clause through his New York businesses, the Trump Foundation, and really any and everything else investigators turn up as they inspect every single foundational rock of Trump's decades-long professional life in the Empire State.

Medical executive facing manslaughter charges in Flint water case given lucrative state job

Less than a week after a judge ruled that Michigan’s chief medical executive will face trial in connection to a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak that led to the death of 12 people, the state’s health department has created an “advisory physician” job for the embattled doctor, paying nearly $180,000 a year. According to a Detroit News report, creating the civil service position for Dr. Eden Wells will make it harder for the incoming Democratic administration to fire her for her alleged role in covering up an outbreak of the pneumonia-like Legionnaires’ disease at McLaren Hospital. Experts say the outbreak is tied to the 2014 switch to Flint River water under an emergency manager appointed by Republican Gov. Rick Snyder. Wells stands accused of involuntary manslaughter, obstruction of justice, and lying to a law enforcement officer. She is the second member of Snyder’s cabinet to face involuntary manslaughter charges in the Legionnaires’ outbreak; Health and Human Services director Nick Lyon was charged in August. Wells was initially charged with obstruction of justice and lying to a police officer last June. She is also alleged to have forbidden a county health department from notifying the public, interfered with the work of university researchers, and lied about when she learned of the outbreak, according to the Associated Press. Like Wells, Lyon remains on the job pending the outcome of his case, even though Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has called on both of them to resign. Wells’s new civil service position will begin Jan. 1, but there’s no word on what Lyon will do once new Democratic Gov.-elect Gretchen Whitmer takes office. Since the beginning of Wells’s legal troubles, her attorneys have claimed that she wasn’t informed of the 2014-15 Legionnaires’ epidemic until either September or October 2015—months before Snyder’s administration alerted the public. Her team also claims that Wells “had no ‘legal duty’ to alert residents” to the danger. Flint’s mayor, who had commended 67th District Judge William Crawford for his decision to charge Wells with involuntary manslaughter—calling it a “good judicial decision” in a statement issued to the press—was decidedly less happy with the Snyder administration’s decision to reward Wells with the new job.
