The SWAMP Takes Over

When he was a candidate for President, Donald Trump pledged to “Drain the Swamp” of Washington by keeping lobbyists and insiders out of top-level posts in the Administration. Now that he’s President, however, he’s appointing a team of swamp monsters to key posts.

The Guardian reports:

For Jean Sassine, who lost his job and nearly lost his home during the 2008 financial crisis, fighting the influence of the big banks in Washington is personal. He became a member of community organization New York Communities for Change (NYCC) six years ago as a way to fight back, and for him the Goldman action “means trying to wake people up that these are the people who were part of the big crisis in 2008, that Steven Mnuchin was called Mr Foreclosure at OneWest and Goldman Sachs. Do you want Mr Foreclosure to be secretary of the treasury?”

    Forget “Drain the Swamp,” it is time to “Flush the Toilet!” How can we push the Vichy US Government to confront this malignant leadership cluster? We must do more than rally. We must confront and expose. We must effectively shame where appropriate.
