Gabby Giffords Is Taking The Donald Trump White House To Court



The lawyers for President Donald Trump are probably some of the busiest people in the world. Not only is this man the most controversial President of the United States in recent memory who seems to enjoy doing borderline illegal (as well as overtly illegal) things (and implementing policies in that same vain) on an almost daily basis, but he is also extremely good at causing trouble for himself and everyone around him in all other aspects of his life as well. Even before he was President, his career as a real estate mogul led him to declare bankruptcy about a thousand times.

It ought to be of little surprise, then, that it was recently announced that President Trump’s administration is being sued yet again because of another of its appalling decisions. Except that this one might be a little different, because it is so grave it has the potential to bring down the whole administration.

The Giffords Law Center is bringing a lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF). The suit is being masterminded by American hero Gabby Giffords, who is well known for being totally brutal and uncompromising when it comes to this kind of thing. Almost makes you feel sorry for the President, doesn’t it? Or at least it would, if it wasn’t for the fact that he has literally brought all of this on himself for his own material gain at the expense of our democracy and the future of our country.

Giffords’ gun control group is accusing the Trump administration of deliberately hiding documents that apparently show secret communications and backroom dealings between administration officials and the National Rifle Association (NRA). Isn’t it funny how Republicans‘ politics on gun control always seems to line up perfectly with what they need to say to get chunky donations from the NRA?

Two separate Freedom of Information requests have been submitted to the ATF already to try to get it to release the documents, but it has outright refused to comply, making a court case basically inevitable. The documents would show whether the ATF has been under the material influence of the NRA’s pro-gun lobbyists at any point, as well as the extent of that. The requests aim to discover how far the ATF was pushed to pursue “dangerous policies and to oppose common sense gun violence prevention measures”.

As if we needed another reason to not like Donald Trump, this is definitely it.
