Abuse of public trust

Milosevic and his family embezzled billions from the public money and he was responsible for mass murders in the Yugoslav Wars. He was extradited to The Hague to face war crimes, but died of a heart attack before the trial was concluded.

I was in Croatia in the ‘90s as a journalist and the stories I was told were painful and horrific. Women, especially, were in shock over the gang rapes, torture and murder.

Cheatolini’s cruelty is not directly viewed as war crimes, but his disdain of DACA children who will be deported to countries they do not even know, his support for the mean-spirited GOP “Health” Bill, and his disregard for seniors, the disabled, poor people and people of color will be known, hopefully someday, as crimes against humanity. 

Recently the press has discovered that many in his administration have abused the public trust by sticking high bills for private jets to the taxpayers. First class jet travel just is not good enough for an hour-long flight for some of these white men billionaires.

The Constitution, a document scorned by Cheatolini, says, “No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.” Did Congress pass a law authorizing private jets?

Cheatolini, his family and administration have elevated greed to a scam, “… greed is a selfish, strong wish to continuously get more and more, often when it is not needed.”
