    ‘Mulvaney also said it should come as no surprise that Trump was unhappy the central bank, which is an independent agency, “is raising rates and we think driving down the value of the stock market”.

      Lying is usually the crime they get them for when they have committed other serious but hard to prove crimes.
      A different angle to the Al Capone case where of course his culpability as a mob leader was hard to prove but tax fraud was easier. Later they did the Rico law for organised crome

    Chicago prosecutor speaks out about dropping Smollet charges

    ‘She also said Mr. Smollett was charged with a class 4 felony, which was on par with pulling a fire alarm at a school or “draft card mutilation.” Those kinds of charges are “routinely resolved, particularly in cases involving suspects with no prior criminal record, long before a case ever nears a courtroom and often without either jail time or monetary penalties,” she wrote.”

    Chicago of course has bigger problems than the lowest level crimes

    “Joe Magats, the first assistant state’s attorney, defended the decision this week. He said the prosecutor’s office made violent crime a priority, adding, “I don’t see Jussie Smollett as a threat to public safety.”

      No, nothing like fibbing to the FBI.

    Telegraph editorial says May must go. Conservatives say going into an election with her as leader would be disaster. How long can she prolong the agony?
