OBAMA'S LAWYERS FORM 'WORST-CASE SCENARIO' TASK FORCE TO MONITOR TRUMP

River Stillwood

Politico is reporting that the attorneys who guided President Obama's administration through the rules of conduct are forming a task force to monitor Trump and his team to ensure their actions reamain within legal parameters set forth by the constitution and federal law.

Already the legal eagles have formed a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, raised a $1.5 million operating budget, hired five staff members, and filed more than 50 Freedom of Information requests for events that transpired during Trump's first month in office..

Rather than focus on the large, public issues already getting broad investigative attention, such as trump's connection to Russia, the group will be focusing on less visible controversies, such as the White House's intimidation of regulatory agencies.

There goal is to prevent the erosion of our democracy into authoritarianism.
