Last night while appearing on Bill Maher’s “Real Time” former ethics czar for President George W. Bush, Richard Painter, ripped Donald Trump’s White House staff, calling them wife-beaters and Russia-collaborators.
Richard Painter pointed out, “It’s a very difficult situation for this White House; If they were to throw out everyone who was a wife beater or collaborated with Russians, they might have a thin staff.”
He then went after the government’s “supposed checks and balances,” referring to it as nothing more than “a joke.”
“It’s not working, it’s a joke. There’s no oversight in the House of Representatives or the Senate,” he said.
Maher asked what the “check” is in “Democracy Bingo” when things like this come up.
“Well, they need to get the boot,” Painter said. “Because they’re not going to do anything. Look at the Oversight Committee. They spent two years looking at Hillary Clinton’s emails and didn’t do anything else and they weren’t interested in John Kerry because he’d already run for president and they were focusing on her. Then comes Trump and there’s no oversight anymore.”
