Elie Mystal reports that the Trump administration has reinterpreted the Hatch Act, which bans Federal employees from partisan politics while on the job. A snippet:
This week, the Office of Special Counsel (not the Mueller people, the guys who say the President can torture people) issued “guidance” about the Hatch Act. They told federal employees that any talk of “impeachment” could violate the Act, as well as talk of “resistance.”
That’s right. Legal counsel to the President unironically conceded that trying to prevent the President of the United States from committing high crimes and misdemeanors, or merely discussing those crimes, was tantamount to working for the Democratic Party and should be prohibited. In TrumpWorld there is no country, only Trump, so anybody working with the interests of the country in mind must be working against Trump and should be subject to prohibitions against political activity.
