What Is The Punishment For Using A Federal Government WebSite To Promote Personal Business?
President-Elect Donald Trump’s official government website is up and running at greatagain.gov
People from America and Around The World will be reading the pages on this site.
It has information about the President-Elect and Vice President-Elect Michael Pence, transition information, positions open for U.S. citizens to apply. There are also pages of info on the future first and second ladies.
And, that last part is where it gets interesting.
On Melania Trump’s page is a promotion for her personal business.
So, Donald J. Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, are using a federal government website and Donald Trump’s forthcoming position as President of the United States to promote The President-Elect's wife’s personal business?
Sure seems to look like that.
(The paragraph directly above is from the Department of Justice WebSite and the words in RED are mine for emphasis)
So, IF Federal crimes are any infraction of federal law and legal code, and IF those crimes can range from mail fraud to identity theft, drug trafficking to gun licensing violations, and immigration fraud to illegally downloading songs and movies on the internet, isn't using a federal government web site for personal gain an infraction?
IT'S BEEN MY BELIEF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT COMPUTER SYSTEM IS FOR OFFICIAL FEDERAL GOVERNMENT USE ONLY.
ISN'T PROMOTING PERSONAL BUSINESS ON A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WEBSITE A CRIME?
