CNN political commentator Angela Rye said that she agrees with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon that the Trump White House has a poor track record on hiring minorities and should make more of an effort to do so.
Rye, the former executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus, is no fan of President Donald Trump. But she clearly sees through the false narrative that Bannon is a racist. On Thursday night, she told Anderson Cooper that she agrees with Bannon on the need for White House diversity:
The narrative that Bannon is a white supremacist has become a staple of liberal cable-news talking points, despite no evidence that Bannon is racist in any way. Bannon did once say in an interview that his website Breitbart News is a platform for the “Alt-Right.” But as people close to him make clear, Bannon at the time thought that “Alt-Right” referred to a community of alternative conservatives on the Internet. Only later did the term “Alt-Right” attain a racial connotation in the mainstream media.
Bannon’s populism places special emphasis on advancement for African-Americans, as listeners of his radio show “Breitbart News Daily” have known for years. Populist nationalists believe that black Americans have been disenfranchised by elites in both political parties, and that educational and small business opportunities need to surface in the black community against the wishes of Democrats who seek to sell welfare for votes and Republicans who largely don’t pay any attention to black people. Bannon’s company Breitbart News is considerably more diverse than the White House.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody Orders Investigation Into Mike Bloomberg’s Felon Voting Bribery Scheme
The oligarch may be held accountable.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody has ordered an investigation into what appears to be a bribery voting scheme organized by Democrat oligarch Mike Bloomberg. Moody ordered the investigation after Governor Ron DeSantis requested it, following Congressman Matt Gaetz in questioning the legality of his felon voting scheme.

Bloomberg is personally paying off the outstanding fines of black and Hispanic felons in order to restore their voting rights in Florida before the November election. Florida prevents felons with outstanding fines from voting, and those responsible for criminal acts are nominally supposed to pay the fines incurred from their crimes- not an out-of-state billionaire.
Bloomberg is also nakedly racially discriminating in his felon voting scheme, reserving the fine repayment for black and Hispanic felons, only.
In her letter on the matter, AG Moody requests that the Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigate the scheme, as well as the FBI(as if they’d actually do anything.)
The Democrat oligarch could potentially face felony charges pertaining to obstruction of justice for paying fines that convicted felons are supposed to be responsible for, and election fraud for what seems to be bribing nominally eligible voters to tacitly support the Democrat candidate. The bribery charges could potentially make Bloomberg liable for federal criminal charges.
Florida passed a felon re-enfranchisement referendum in 2018, changing previous state law that barred felons from voting. They still have to pay off outstanding fines to utilize the right. The swing state has been trending red, but it remains a competitive must-win state for President Trump in November.
