Judge grants Amazon’s request to put Microsoft’s $10B Pentagon contract on hold

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the Pentagon to temporarily halt a $10 billion cloud-computing contract with Microsoft after Amazon claimed President Trump caused it to lose out on the deal. Amazon filed a lawsuit in November just weeks after the contract was awarded to Microsoft. The lawsuit said the Defense Department’s decision was a result of ’improper pressure from President Trump’.

So the judiciary is going to award DOD contracts now? What isn't mentioned in the headlines is that Amazon had to put up a $42M bond, if the judge decides that they're full of shit. Personally, I couldn't care less if Trump did lean on the DOD to award the contract to Microsoft. He's ultimately in charge of the department, and he doesn't gain personally from the contract.

"The judge’s decision to block the deal from moving forward was sealed by the court" "I'm going to block it and not publish why" These activist judges need to be sho... disbarred.

I think we are at the tipping point. The corporations are becoming more important than borders or governments. Death of democracy is in full swing.

More of Trump’s abuse of power because he is a vindictive little bitch by nature a trait that comes with his pathological narcissism and makes him not just unfit for the office but a real and present national security risk and danger to the safety of our republic.
