..........You might want to ask Snowden what he thinks about that. Also after watching blumenthal break up the electric "monopoly" to hand the same people who sold their heavily polluting power plants a new "supplier" monopoly, it became very clear that these politicians work to make themselves look good while screwing the public. Electric bills for Ct. doubled.

it's the same game these politicians play and a lot of people have caught on,though many more who have no clue...One week he asks for surveillance that promotes what Israeli security firm that receives the contract,then the next week he's plying taxpayers about an underfunded railroad...Connecticut is going the same as "privatize NY" scam that provided much for the politically connected and their friends slices of the pie for individual gain at the cost to the taxpayer..
How much lobby money are these politicians recieving from security and camera businesses.?
There you will find Shumer blumenthal motivation to "protect the best interests of the taxpayer"...

The television stations here are inbred with control freaks even. Just this last snowstorm, they named it Ashford. Everyone else in the country calls it Electra. Not the first storm to get re-named. Then there is the first flight. They say it happened in Bridgeport, Ct with some other guy, not like the history and the research of the Smithstonian. blumenthals father-in-law owns a lot of media with some other jews, looks like that's the link. Then ther is the Newtown massacre. Adam would have been a hero had he gone into the Town Hall. blumenthal has a lot of crooked friends in newtown.

Blumenthal stae attorney general,.Rudy Guiliani ex attorney general these scumbags have created a national health care crises of addiction to maintain their jail system set to release and no longer use marijuana addicts as a cash cows,have now created opioid addicts to replace them in the jail system...these attorney generals work for the best interest of entities doing harm to the American people today are all should be incarcerated for treason to the American people....
Mass media manipulation... They are undermining Americans for their power and individual greed.....

Of which our defense department profited the most by allowing it to happen,,....

AG Power Grab

Out of control in Connecticut.

By John R. Lott Jr.

he last decade has seen state attorney generals use the power of the courts to shape public policy in unprecedented ways. Among the most aggressive in litigation ranging from tobacco to guns has been Connecticut's Richard Blumenthal, though for Blumenthal this was just the warm up. Even if the ideas that he is now advancing fail in Connecticut, they provide a dire warning of what other state attorneys general may soon start trying.

In just 12 years, his office has ballooned in size, more than doubling its budget from $13 million to almost $27 million and increasing the number of cases completed by 65 percent. Yet, despite this growth, Blumenthal has gone so far into actions previously reserved for other parts of the government that he often neglects the real duties of his job.

On August 9, the Connecticut supreme court checked Blumenthal for overstepping his authority. The court unanimously ruled that Blumenthal's jurisdiction is largely limited by state statute to representing state agencies and officials in lawsuits brought by or against them, although the attorney general had claimed broader powers.

Unsatisfied with his traditional role, Blumenthal had gone after the administrator of an academy accused of mishandling state funds. The court noted that it was up to the Connecticut commissioner of education, not Blumenthal alone, to bring the case.

Blumenthal has received harsh words before. For instance, last December, New York state's highest court found that Blumenthal's office was "mishandling" and making "missteps" in a paternity case. The Connecticut Law Tribune reported that "the direct criticism by the court raised eyebrows in Albany ."

The state supreme court pointed out in its decision two weeks ago that the attorney general's office had been established in 1897 because of the inefficiencies in having "each state agency and department [retain] its own legal counsel." But in July, the Connecticut Law Tribune reported that because his staff was so busy, the attorneys in Blumenthal's office "will no longer serve as counsel to state boards or as counsel to agency staffs ."

The state supreme court pointed out in its decision two weeks ago that the attorney general's office had been established in 1897 because of the inefficiencies in having "each state agency and department [retain] its own legal counsel." But in July, the Connecticut Law Tribune reported that because his staff was so busy, the attorneys in Blumenthal's office "will no longer serve as counsel to state boards or as counsel to agency staffs ."

Worse, not only is he abrogating his role to advise, represent, and defend the state of Connecticut, his office is now suing the state. The high-profile case involves Cross Sound Cable Co. and represents an unprecedented power grab. Blumenthal sued to stop a cable being laid between Long Island and New Haven on environmental grounds. The suit was brought against the Connecticut Siting Council, the state agency that approved the cable. Just as in the case decided by the supreme court, Blumenthal filed the lawsuit in his own name, not on behalf of a state agency charged with these policy decisions.

Blumenthal claims that there is precedent for state agencies to sue each other, and indeed there is when lines of authority conflict. Try as they might, legislatures cannot foresee all possible conflicts. Courts step in to determine not who made the "correct" policy decision, but who has the actual authority. What Blumenthal wants, however, is something quite different. Instead of having legislators resolving policy differences, Blumenthal would make himself and the courts the final arbiter over policy.

The grab for power also crosses ethical lines. Two of the law firms that Blumenthal contracted with to sue the tobacco companies were run separately by his former law partner and his partner's wife. Blumenthal's defenders claim that other law firms simply didn't want the job. In a Connecticut Law Tribune article, however, a few lawyers disagreed, one complaining that "we didn't ever get a meeting" with the attorney general's office and another saying that his firm wasn't included despite agreeing to the state's contractual terms. Blumenthal's former partner, David Golub, acknowledged, "I know how it 'looks' he's my former partner ..."

Yet, whatever the concerns about Blumenthal giving a contract to a former partner, where did he get the authority at the time the contracts were negotiated to commit the state to pay private attorneys a sum then estimated to be more than $250 million?

During 12 years in office, Blumenthal has grown arrogant. People in and out of state government are afraid of him and are scared to publicly speak about their experiences. The state supreme court has better uses of its time than to monitor the behavior of an out-of-control attorney general.

John Lott is a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute..........Nice interview about the 1/4 billion $$ they robbed. blumenthal also subcontracted out the work of the AG and went on tour of the country which included a lot of time in Chicago before obama was even known. This was all done on the Ct. taxpayers dime. So with handing out all that state money for 20 years and placing people in state posts to hire the "right" people, just try to complain or get a lawyer to actually represent you. You could throw a lot of money down that rabbit hole.
