Tom Barrack Wanted An Ambassadorship Says T-Rex But Not like Calk to the UN, Lawless

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial book - NY Mag

LITERARY EDNY, Oct 3 – Tom Barrack wanted to be an ambassador. At least that's what Rex Tillerson said. 

  Steve Calk had wanted that too, and gave away FDIC insured funds from his military bank to Paul Manafort in the pursuit. Calk had mentioned the US Ambassador to the UN position; Tillerson had appeared, dinosaur-like, at the UN while Kurt Wheelock was still allowed in. Now all that was gone. 

     Now, as it happened, the District Executive's Office of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York was itself getting UN-like. Maybe they didn't have decadent UAE-funded cocktail parties and even a bar inside the building, like the UN did.

  But they were acting lawlessly: they had an application for a press pass to cover a trial, but didn't say what the rules or standards were. Then they left one - yeah, one - hanging as the trial unfolded, now for 13 days. 

 The morning of Tillerson's testimony, Inner City Press called EDNY District Executive Eugene J. Corcoran's office. The questions ran into who was listed on the website, and by implication corporate structure.

That's not in the First Amendment, Kurt Wheelock fumed. But what could he do? More on Patreon here.
