The American Bar Association (ABA) begrudgingly distanced itself from a former executive, who claims association with the ABA in her Twitter bio, after she made egregiously authoritarian remarks on Thursday morning.
“I firmly believe the Constit [sic] permits indicting a sitting president, but if DOJ disagrees, indicting his children, the Trump Org & Foundation for their roles in wrongdoing is a great alternative — or addition,” said Jill Wine-Banks on Twitter, linking to a Washington Post opinion piece.
Here’s the problem: There is absolutely zero proof of any “wrongdoing” on behalf of the President Donald J. Trump, or his family. Yet the former executive director of the ABA, the largest professional organization for lawyers in America, which claims to “promote competence, ethical conduct and professionalism,” wants to throw Trump’s family and friends in prison for nothing in order to punish him.
Wine-Banks was also a prosecutor in the Watergate scandal and General Counsel for the U.S. Army.
Wine-Banks’ Twitter profile says that she is the COO of the ABA, which might lead people to think that she is, perhaps, the COO of the ABA. But according to the ABA’s associate executive director Carol Stevens, who became militant when Big League Politics reached out for comment, that is not the case.
“Jill Wine-Banks is not the COO of the ABA. She left the ABA in 1990 (arriving in 1987) and has not been in any leadership position since then,” Stevens said when asked if Wine-Banks’ authoritarian positions and thuggery represented the views of the ABA.
When asked if Wine-Banks was lying about being the COO of the organization, Stevens said she “can only confirm that [Wine-Banks] is not the COO of ABA.”
Pressing further, BLP asked for an answer to the original question – whether Wine-Banks’ views represented those of the ABA – considering that Wine-Banks claims association with organization.
“No.” Stevens said bluntly. “She has no currently [sic] relationship with the ABA and has not had one since 1990. Please direct this to her, the Army and the Watergate Committee. And learn to read a twitter bio.”
Stevens is the former Managing Editor of News at USA Today.
The ABA only (rudely) distanced itself from Wine-Banks call for action, which was decidedly antithetical to the American justice system, after questioning from this pesky reporter. So much for “ethical conduct and professionalism.”
In September, the ABA called for a delay in the confirmation vote of Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

WATCH: Tucker SLAMS Lindsey Graham For EB5 Visa Giveaway Scheme Amidst Coronavirus Epidemic
Graham wants to use the crisis to boost immigration visas.
Tucker Carlson took South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to task in a segment on his show Thursday night, blasting the opportunistic Senator for seeking to insert an immigration visa giveaway into upcoming Coronavirus stimulus legislation.
Graham is attempting to enact a raise in the annual level of EB-5 visas. The controversial program allows wealthy foreigners to enter the United States on the basis of supposed investment they make into the economy.
Graham is lobbying President Trump to agree to a massive boost to the program-raising annual EB-5 visa levels from a current total of 10,000 to 75,000. Graham also seeks to lower the threshold of investment for an EB-5 from $900,000 to $450,000.
In a display of tone-deaf politics taken to a new level, the EB-5 program Graham seeks to expand is currently commonly used by wealthy Chinese citizens to purchase American residency and citizenship. Allowing a free path to residency for China’s richest multi-millionaires and billionaires almost certainly would provide the Chinese government a means of entryism into major American institutions and society, in an age where the American public is more distrustful and skeptical of Chinese influence than ever before.
Watch the segment here:
Graham has also gone on record advocating for a bailout of big businesses and private companies, while opposing direct basic income transfers to everyday working American families.
American citizenship is not a mere bauble to be offered for sale in a time of crisis, especially considering the EB-5’s dubious benefits on the American economy. The verification mechanisms for the visa recipients’ investments in American jobs are notoriously weak, to the extent that both major parties agreed to scale back the program last year.
America is a country, not merely an economy. It’s well past time Senator Graham gives up his constant attempt to retcon old globalist policies into President Donald Trump’s administration, especially in times of national emergency.
