Congress Is About To Confirm Another Former Goldman Sachs Honcho For Trump

Source: HuffPo

Senate Republicans voted in lockstep to behind Clayton, and were joined by 10 Democrats, including Sens. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.), Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.) and Mark Warner (D-Va).

1. Confirming Jay Clayton may turn out to be a great thingy

 

Jay Clayton is partners of Sullivan Cromwell, works for Goldman Sachs, and is invested un Bain Capital.

By law, Jay Clayton is forbidden to touch our Wall Street fraud case; because it involves Sachs, Bain and SullCrom

17. I get itchy any time you use "by law"

forbidden to touch our Wall Street fraud case

Great!

Um... What "case" is that? You have googled far enough to learn what "with prejudice" means, right?

5. For efficiency he has combined the two to build the swamp.
