Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, August 12, 2018

For the past year, [White House advisor Stephen] Miller has been quietly gutting the U.S. refugee program, slashing the number of people allowed into the country to the lowest level in decades. "His name hasn't been on anything," says a former U.S. official who worked on refugee issues. "He is working behind the scenes, he has planted all of his people in all of these positions, he is on the phone with them all of the time, and he is creating a side operation that will circumvent the normal, transparent policy process." And he is succeeding. Whereas Bannon made controversy his calling card, Miller has operated in a more shadowy -- and effective -- manner, gradually applying leverage and using shrewd personnel decisions to implement his draconian vision on immigration policy throughout the West Wing and government agencies.

Stephen Miller looks like the same model as Corey Lewandowski. It's hard to believe their bodies function without blood or even a heart.

I can understand why he doesn't have children - and never should.

Since Trump physically eats his paper trail, is that also where Miller stuffs his? Into Trump?

If Trump and his administration are found guilty of conspiracy with Russian intelligence to undermine United States presidential election can we subpoena Miller's phone records?

'There Won't Even Be a Paper Trail'

i'd like to modify that a bit and say about that little creep, " don't worry they'll never find the body "

Remember the good 'ol days when a thread on proper document handling would get 500 comments? Where's the passion?

Psycho-racist Steven Miller is one of Trump's "all the best people" and the one behind the rendition and torture of little brown-skinned children.

Whale scat looks down on him.

I seem to remember an email server that skirted transparency guidelines being very important to Republicans.

Meanwhile, today they don't care that Trump uses a personal cell phone for government business, or that a href=https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/09/the-brazenness-of-jared-and-ivankas-
personal-email-server/541017/>Kushner and Ivanka use private email accounts to conduct government business.

But good thing we didn't vote for that email lady.
