WASHINGTON — A lawsuit filed against the Trump administration says officials handcuffed and wrongly stripped two Yemeni men of legal permission to join their father in Flint last weekend, coercing them to sign papers relinquishing their status as permanent U.S. residents and forcing them out of the country.

Marylyn Blumberg? Ask her about her association with La Gorce Country Club wherein she disguised her Jewish background and went by the name of "Spike"....

I hope the Governor selects Judge Fleur Lobree. She is first class, intelligent, experienced, dedicated, serious, academic and has great integrity.

Flour is the dumbest smart person I've ever met. Book smart but a bag of hammers everywhere else, will never know thing one of being a judge. Will write nice opinions though.

Who would fly across the globe to go to flint, Michigan. We did that guy a favor.

I hope they pick Judge Luck. I would love to get rid of him. He still hasn't discovered that cops don't always tell the truth. It's a constant battle in his court to get just a bit of fairness for the defense.

Is it true Lurvey gets to have tea with the Governor and hand pick his buddy Brennan's successor?
