WH Official Stephen Miller Broke The Law By Launching Into Anti-Biden Rant On Fox & Friends

White House official Stephen Miller appears to have broken the law during a Friday appearance on Donald Trump’s favorite morning program, Fox & Friends.

According to a new complaint filed by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), Miller violated the Hatch Act by using his official government position for partisan purposes.

The complaint notes that Miller, from the grounds of the White House, “impermissibly mixed official government business with political views about former Vice President Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president.”

Just in case Miller’s violation of the Hatch Act wasn’t clear enough, the Trump campaign’s official Twitter account even posted a clip of the interview.

A portion of Miller’s comments:

Well as you know Joe Biden is stuck in a basement somewhere and he just emerges every now and again and somebody hands him a notecard and he says whatever his 23 year old staffer tells him to say and then, he dutifully disappears to be seen a week later. As for former President Obama the reality is that for eight years he delivered nothing but failure and betrayal to the people of this country.

As CREW notes in its filing, “This Hatch Act prohibits any executive branch employee from ‘us[ing] his official authority or influence for the purpose of interfering with or affecting the result of an election.’”

Business as usual for this lawless administration

The news that a White House official broke the law on live television might have meant something in previous presidencies, but it’s business as usual for the most lawless administration in history.

In 2019, the Office of Special Counsel found that Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway repeatedly violated the Hatch Act and recommended that she be removed from federal service.

Trump quickly stood by Conway, saying that he wouldn’t fire her for exercising her “free speech.”

In November, the American people will have the opportunity to remove Donald Trump and his band of criminals once and for all.

Kanye West defends T.I. in Sunday Service rant at Skid Row

Kanye West picked a humble venue for the one-year anniversary performance of his Sunday Service shows: LA’s Skid Row.

Over the weekend, the producer took to downtown LA’s Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter that offers food and spiritual guidance to those in need, to host the usual choral performance — and to do some preaching.

“I ain’t tellin nobody what to do, I’m expressin’ what I’ve been through. ‘Cause you know people love to take a soundbite and say, ‘This was not exactly devil-approved by the internet,’ ” says producer Yeezus in a video acquired by TMZ. He then appears to defend rapper T.I., who received much public condemnation in November for bragging about regularly having a doctor check his daughter’s hymen to confirm her virginity.

“They tryna play T.I., but he’s talkin’ about somethin’ that’s God-approved,” says West in the video. The statement is met with silence from the audience.

“I definitely saw a strong, compelling vision with the homeless problem, and I know that we can find a solution, worldwide solution” he continues, to applause, before launching into a nearly unintelligible sentence about Elon Musk and seemingly stating that Sunday Service provides “an alternative to opioids” and “an alternative to pornography.”

West has previously attempted to end homelessness by building a fleet of “Star Wars”-esque low-income housing shelters in a California forest.

Last week, West dropped a Sunday Service album on Christmas Day, and earlier this month he painted himself in head-to-toe silver for the debut of his first opera. Joel Osteen is reportedly in talks to take Sunday Service on tour.
