Former top DHS official Brian Murphy files complaint w/House Homeland Security Cmte [HHSC] vs DHS
Sep 9
HHSC makes complaint public
Sep 10
Chad Wolf nominated for DHS sec'y
Sep 11
HHSC subpoenas Chad Wolf, whose response is⤵️ 1/
@RubyWorms @ThomasS4217 2/ How *convenient* for Chad Wolf to be nominated as DHS secretary *one day* after HHSC releases damning whistleblower complaint, and then one day after that uses Wolf's DHS nomination as excuse for not complying w/HHSC subpoena. (more) h/t @BaddCompani
@RubyWorms @ThomasS4217 @BaddCompani 3/ "The WH sent Wolf's nomination to serve as full Homeland Security secretary to the Senate on Thursday" [Sep 10, 2020] one day before Wolf's subpoena was issued.
"In a Friday [Sep 11, 2020] letter...Assistant DHS Secretary Beth Spivey told the [HHSC] chairman... (con't)
@RubyWorms @ThomasS4217 @BaddCompani 4/ ...'The arguments in your letter are without merit,' adding in part that 'the right of a President's nominee to 👉abstain from testifying on matters unrelated to his or her nomination while such a nomination is pending is an unwritten rule👈 honored by Chairmen... (con't)
@RubyWorms @ThomasS4217 @BaddCompani 5/ ...from both sides of the aisle for many decades."
"Should the presence of SOPDDS Cuccinelli before the Cmte in Acting Sec'y Wolf's stead not meet your needs, we can...find a later date for the Acting Secretary to make himself available to the Cmte 👉after his confirmation...
@RubyWorms @ThomasS4217 @BaddCompani 6/ ...vote in the Senate."
Congress needs to give itself power to remove "acting" Cabinet-level positions so that this egregious catch-22 never happens again.
"Separately, the top Republican & Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee sent a letter to the same office [DHS]...
@RubyWorms @ThomasS4217 @BaddCompani 7/ ...stating it is investigating the claims made by [whistleblower Brian] Murphy" made public on Sep 9, 2020. DHS whistleblower complaint⤵️.

1/ "Of the $1.1 billion his 👉campaign and the party👈 raised from the beginning of 2019 through July, more than $800 million has already been spent. Now some people inside the campaign are forecasting... (con't) h/t @Agenthades1
@LpVotebiden2020 @BaddCompani @parscale @Agenthades1 2/ ...with less than 60 days until the election, according to Republican officials briefed on the matter."
"The campaign hired a coterie of highly paid consultants (Mr. Trump’s former bodyguard and White House aide has been paid more than $500,000 by the R.N.C. since late 2017);
@LpVotebiden2020 @BaddCompani @parscale @Agenthades1 3/ ...spent $156,000 for planes to pull aerial banners in recent months; and paid nearly $110,000 to Yondr, a company that makes magnetic pouches used to store cellphones during fund-raisers so that donors could not secretly record Mr. Trump and leak his remarks."

@mog7546 @ThomasS4217 Thom #UpForReelectionIn2020 Tillis <thread>:
1/ Raw Story⤴️ links to both WaPo & NYT, Sep 6 2020. NYT:
"Mr DeJoy’s wife, Dr Aldona Wos, was...vice chairwoman of Mr. Bush’s NC fund-raising team...later appointed...to serve as the ambassador to Estonia🇪🇪."
@mog7546 @ThomasS4217 2/ "[O]ver a dozen management-level employees at New Breed would routinely donate to the same candidate on the same day, often writing checks for an identical amount of money." (con't)
@mog7546 @ThomasS4217 3/ ...One day in October 2014, for example, 20 midlevel and senior officials at the company donated a total of $37,600 to the campaign of Senator Thom Tillis, Republican of North Carolina, who was running to unseat a Democratic incumbent." (more...)

@ZevShalev 1/ Just what every Postmaster General needs...a 24-carat gold staircase. Absolutely obscene. Think of slave-conditions required to mine, process, deliver that gold to Greensboro. #LetThemEatCake
Did Senate confirm DeJoy? Unable to verify yes or no. (more)
@ZevShalev 2/ Wikipedia:
"The postmaster general is now appointed by 9 'governors', appointed by the president w/the advice and consent of the Senate"
Senate approved all 6 USPSBOG members, most recent confirmations in Jun 2020.
footnote 3, p 73 of PDF: (more...)

@ZevShalev 3/ #CommanderInCheat had opportunity to shape USPSBOG to his liking because as of Dec 2016, there were exactly zero board members. A single Senator held up confirmation hearings for President Obama's 5 nominees. (more) h/t @clearing_fog

@GuadalahonkyToo @clearing_fog <Thread>:
1/ Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is the focus of well-deserved rage, but USPS Board of Governors needs to be examined w/the heat of ten thousand suns.
May 6, 2020:
"The Board of Governors of the USPS today announced its unanimous selection...
@GuadalahonkyToo @clearing_fog 2/ ...of Louis DeJoy to serve as the 75th Postmaster General of the United States and Chief Executive Officer of the world’s largest postal organization."
"DeJoy spent decades in 👉collaboration with the U.S. Postal Service👈... (con't)
@GuadalahonkyToo @clearing_fog 3/ ...Boeing, Verizon, Disney, United Technologies & other public & private companies to provide supply chain logistics, program management & transportation support. He is expected to begin serving in his new role effective Jun 15."

@myrubypearl @Agenthades1 @loonyberg 🤗@myrubypearl😃THANK YOU!
Thank you, @GeorgeCroner for publishing FOIA response!
1/ George Croner quote: "Now, Barr is incorrect about the need to register as almost anyone who was 18 in 1968, like Barr, will attest." i.e, all males must register on their 18th birthday (more)
@myrubypearl @Agenthades1 @loonyberg @GeorgeCroner 2/ George Croner quote: "Was Barr so embarrassed by his obvious deferment he thought it better to misrepresent to the Senate that he had even registered at all?" (more...)
@myrubypearl @Agenthades1 @loonyberg @GeorgeCroner 3/ From FOIA request. Can someone with better eyes than me (or a magnifying glass, LOL) see the dates for William Barr (last line in photo⤵️):
The last 2 entries for Barr appear (to me) to be:
Jul 1971 => Status 1A
Jan 18 1972 => Status 1H (more...)

@mopeng @Archivist1000 1/ To answer @Archivist1000, "'I’d be looking at who was buying that thing yesterday [Jul 27, 2020]. If there was some insider buying happening, that’s interesting knowing it’s this type of headline... (con't)
@mopeng @Archivist1000 2/ ...which is basically just trying to drive the price up in my opinion,' [Benzinga's PreMarket Prep co-host Dennis] Dick said."
WSJ published announcement at 6am EDT on Jul 28, 2020. (more...)
@mopeng @Archivist1000 3/ So any Kodak trading on Tuesday, Jul 28, 2020 wouldn't be considered insider trading. But closer look is needed on previous day activity.
Benzinga's PreMarket Prep co-host Dennis Dick:
