Two points, First, if anyone should be insulted by my post, IMHO, it should be Steve. My post was saying that he (our beloved moderator) was being unfair to Rich. The purpose of my post was not to attack or even belittle you but instead to point out to Steve that if you'd misunderstood the WP article or incorrectly characterized the article then he was being unfair to Rich. Second, your post contains little that could possibly change my mind or my conclusion as to what is most likely. If you want specific things that Trump has done that may be in criminal violation of the Hatch Act then I guess I can give you some although I don't know how this directly might apply since I didn't read the article myself. It would be a criminal violation of the Hatch Act, for example, for the President to force an employee in the executive branch to violate the Hatch Act. Trump on multiple occasions has had partisan political activities like the Republican convention at the White House. It is possible that federal employees had to perform some tasks while on the job to prepare for, perhaps to help run, or perhaps to clean up after the multiple partisan political events that Trump has had on federal property. If so then Trump would likely have committed a criminal violation of the Hatch Act. Also, the office with the responsibility to monitor this stuff, OSC, has found that a large number of Trump's senior staff has violated the Hatch Act and Trump has refused to discipline them. Which seems to demonstrate his disdain for the system in place to monitor for violations of the Hatch Act and the Hatch Act itself.
