DONALD TRUMP'S LATEST JUDGE NOMINEE STEVEN MENASHI BOASTED ABOUT VIOLATING PRIVACY LAWS AS BETSY DEV

Last edited Fri Nov 8, 2019, 07:36 AM - Edit history (1)

A judicial nominee who faces a Senate confirmation vote on Thursday allegedly boasted about breaking privacy laws while working as a legal council to Betsy DeVos' Department of Education.

The New York Times claimed it acquired a memo that disclosed how Steven Menashi helped devise an illegal effort to use Social Security data to deny debt relief to students cheated out of thousands of dollars from the now-defunct Corinthian Colleges, Inc.

A 2018 order prevented DeVos and her department from trying to chase former students of the university chain for student loan debts after it was ruled that the for-profit chain misled them.

Last month, DeVos was held in contempt of court and her department was fined $100,000 after it was revealed that upwards of 16,000 former students continued to be chased for debts. Funds were either paid by or seized from over 5,000 of them.

1. Criminal behavior is a prime requisite to work for Trump

The judiciary is there to serve Dear Leader and the Christo-fascist agenda.

2. I think Trump must have some geniuses working for him

How else could he & his administration so consistently find the absolute worst people for any given job? It's like their superpower or something. Just the absolute worst people, consistently.

3. It's a feature, not a bug.

If your goal is to do things that are illegal or unethical, employees with proven compromised morals are much more malleable.

4. These people disgust me, DeVos in particular.

I want nothing more than to see them in prison. They are true sadists. I sometimes wish we had the opportunity to administer justice on our own terms.
