koder: qorkfiend: koder: Trump's filling his ranks with people who have as much to lose as he does if he loses in November, which makes a lot of people willing to commit or overlook voter fraud to save their own asses.

How much authority do you imagine the head of the US Agency for Global Media has over elections?

Directly over elections? Not much, but over questioning their legitimacy? Non-zero.

1. BBG/USAGM reaches 226 million people globally.

2. My general point is a choir has many voices; its power is when they all sing the same thing in slightly different ways, and they're all singing as if their way of life depends on it.


1. That his primary job is talking to non-Americans doesn't help support your original assertion.

2. One extra person in a job no one ever heard of before this thread is not a member of any sort of "chorus" that they weren't a member of before.

If someone is currently under investigation by the government, they should immediately be disqualified.

Because even if it turns out they are innocent, the government had enough evidence to warrant an investigation.  That alone implies that they cannot be trusted enough for any government job.

This is not a violation of the whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing.  There are plenty of things that are "wrong" even if they are not against the law exactly.

And more to the point - the great big, elephant shaped, hypocritical point, if this was a Democratic appointed nominee, they would have been stripped naked and thrown into the street.

In this administration, being under criminal investigation is basically a letter of recommendation.

"currently under a criminal investigation" - what does that even mean?  Just more FAKE NEWS from the LIEberal media trying to discredit incredible men of honor again.  This guy is one of the BEST that trump can find.  That should be enough for everyone.

seeing how everyone seems to be under investigation, I am beginning to wonder if I am under investigation somewhere too.

I mean, if you are not being investigated, then that means you are important then?   Only poors and the borings don't understand how it feels to be so important and powerful.  The luxury of investigations is a sign that you made it.  that you are successful and matter to the world. In fact, the more you are being investigated that just means you are that much more important, that your better.

Trump is the most investigated person in the world; this is only because he is the smartest and most important person.  Since he is so able to both be president and get investigated just means he is the best person, the most important person ever.
