the corrupt, undemocratic, Trump-coddling Senate would get the last word in the impeachment

first of all, I think everyone must realize that whether the Senate would actually convict him is not an open question. The outcome of a senate trial is 100% guaranteed, they will NOT remove Donald J. Trump.

So the Senate trial won't result in Trump being removed. It will be the final episode in the whole matter, and the GOP will milk it. They'll drag it out. They'll time it to coincide with the 2020 election. Lindsey Graham will lead the shit show. It will be ugly, it will be torture for us. And the dems don't have any moves after it.

Good move, Kamala Harris


August 16, 2012 HousingWire Staff

The California monitor of the $25 billion national mortgage servicing settlement received roughly 1,100 complaints since March from borrowers reporting a slow uptake to the new rules, according to an official in the state attorney general office.

California AG Kamala Harris appointed Katie Porter in March to oversee how the five largest servicers distribute $18 billion in homeowner relief and implement new standards under the settlement. Consent orders from federal regulators in April 2011 contained many of the same rules.

Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Wells Fargo (WFC), Citigroup (C), and Ally Financial agreed to end the practice of foreclosing on borrowers who are being considered for a modification, known as dual tracking. The settlement also required servicers to establish a single point of contact for distressed borrowers, new oversight to end mishandled paperwork and the signing of documents en masse without a review of the loan file among other abuses.

Found the connection to Harris after seeing these videos and looking to find more about this awesome freshman democrat

Photo of Biden when he thought no one was looking

His name is Rashid and he is sometimes a guest at Georgetown Ministry Center, frequenting GMC for services like showers and laundry. Like Biden, he has also served his country. Rashid, an Air Force veteran, traveled the globe during the Vietnam War, drawing maps and bomb plots to support U.S. troops in the heat of battle. “I was honored and proud to serve,” he says of his time in service.

Rashid has experienced homelessness for some time now and when he saw Biden exiting the movie theater last Thursday evening, he asked him for some money so he could buy a sandwich.

Biden obliged — and then he stayed to talk.

“He didn’t think I recognized him,” Rashid said of the former dignitary. As they spoke, Rashid shared of the struggles he has been experiencing in receiving assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs, specifically with procuring a housing voucher that would enable him to receive decent, safe and sanitary housing — leaving behind a life on the streets.

It was then that Biden went back into the theater for a pen and paper and jotted down a phone number. It was a personal contact who could assist in helping Rashid. As Biden handed him the slip of paper, a bystander snapped a photo on his phone’s camera — and the rest, as they say in our digital age, is recent history.
