    I guess I'm OK with that, and will abide by what the end of the likely to be multiple courts and multiple court rulings.
    Not really. He's not arguing states rights -- in a way, it's just the opposite. He's saying the federal government should take (keep) more power.

    This is about throwing a monkey-wrench in on actions he doesn't like, trying to use the courts to manipulate public policy he's not involved in. That's not right.

    The problem for me is the AG’s office is supposed to be apolitical and concerned with state law. You cant have AG’s having veto power over federal laws, and the laws passed by the House and Senate.

    But, it keeps him in the news.

    What was a difference of political opinion now makes someone illegitimate as a person
    Democrats feel so sorry for the world, they want it to move here.
    Unlike our last four presidents, Trump delivers results.

    I had an opportunity once to go to NYC for 3 days, performing 2 nights, all expenses paid, flights, rooms, etc.

    Backline, sound and lights provided by the venue. I would even come home with more money than I left with.

    All I had to do was show up.....

    I politely declined.

    'Nuff said.

    I'd agree with you that it's not right to use the courts to manipulate public policy, which should remain the realm of the legislatures, unless, of course, the laws the legislature passes are unconstitutional in some way.

    Eric Schneiderman, New York’s attorney general, reached a milestone of sorts recently.

    By moving to sue the Federal Communications Commission over net neutrality this month, his office took its 100th legal or administrative action against the Trump administration and congressional Republicans. His lawyers have challenged Mr. Trump’s first, second and third travel bans and sued over such diverse matters as a rollback in birth control coverage and a weakening of pollution standards. They have also unleashed a flurry of amicus briefs and formal letters, often with other Democratic attorneys general, assailing legislation they see as gutting consumer finance protections or civil rights.

    “We try and protect New Yorkers from those who would do them harm,” Mr. Schneiderman said during a recent interview in his Manhattan office. “The biggest threat to New Yorkers right now is the federal government, so we’re responding to it.”
    ================================================== ==========
    Even if Trump fires Mueller, this guy will pick up the prosecutions as NY State is not affected by Federal (i.e. Presidential) pardons.
    He has 0 authority over he president so he can do nothing.
    His lawsuit will be tossed out like it should be.

    The courts have already ruled that he FCC has he ability to regulate the internet with a previous ruling when they said that
    They could reclassify the internet.

    They certainly have a nutball for an AG.

    I lived for a year in NYC as a bachelor back in the late 60s & enjoyed the experience thoroughly, except trying to get back to Manhattan from Brooklyn one night. Took me 6-7 hours by subway.

    Keeping up the pressure on the Trump cabal is the best for of resistance we have. Thus far the courts have done reasonably well in backing challenges to the administration's screwing of the country. A California law is in th works now to make net neutrality mandatory in our state; and we can do that.
