Yet Another DC Department of Inertia (Speaking of DC Redundancies) As we have repeatedly noted, there is a whole lot of good going on in the Donald Trump Administration. But we are not sporting rose spectacles - we of course recognize that there is some serious bad going on as well. The lion share of the bad - isn’t being done by Trump’s people. It is being done by holdover Swamp creatures - personnel from the Barack Obama Administration and before. As we have repeatedly noted, Trump’s greatest mistake - was not making many, many more people leave DC when he arrived. And so it is at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Which because of holdover people and policies - continues to do some very bad work. To wit: January 17, 2017 - three days before being Inaugurated out of power - the Obama FTC filed a ridiculous lawsuit against innovation corporation Qualcomm. At the very ridiculous, very crony behest of computer giant Apple.
