Morning Digestion – 3-15-19: REPUBS DEFY TRUMP, COLLEGE SCANDAL TIPSTER ID’D.

The Trump hating media thinks it’s a big deal that Republican Senators voted to block Trump’s National Emergency. Of course, they had the luxury to take that vote because they knew Trump would veto the bill and go ahead with the wall funding, which they all want. So, they get to take a virtue-signaling vote, and still have the desired result. I should also say that these Republicans are genuinely worried that they might be facilitating a National Emergency declaration from a Democrat President on issues like Climate Change or guns.

The Wall Street Journal has id’d the tipster in the college fraud scandal. Morrie Tobin was facing securities fraud charges and gave prosecutors a tip that a Yale coach had offered to get his daughter into the college for $450k.
