The lobbying firm run by Trump ally Matt Schlapp brought in $750,000 in the final two weeks of 2020 from a former top Trump fundraiser and convicted fraudster who retained Schlapp to lobby—unsuccessfully—for a presidential pardon.
Why it matters: The substantial sum that the former fundraiser, Georgia's Parker "Pete" Petit, paid to Schlapp's Cove Strategies shows how valuable connections to Donald Trump were in his final days in office for wealthy felons seeking clemency from the outgoing president.
What's new: Lobbying disclosure records filed on Thursday said Schlapp, a close informal Trump advisor, worked on a "request for a pardon and other public policy issues relating to criminal justice."

How to wage a peaceful revolution to restore rule of law, ethics, and morality to the nation
With a title that satirically mocks Hillary Clinton, this book details how our executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government have become thoroughly corrupt and failed the citizenry. This work is a call to arms during these times of crises, when government corruption has hit a “cancerous state.” The overriding message is that Americans should turn off cable news, get up off of the couch, and join the second American Revolution to restore the greatness of our nation in these perilous times.
