Is DOJ Undermining Trump’s Commitment to Drain the Swamp?
The American Spectator cited Senior Fellow Michelle Minton on online betting and the Department of Justice:
Michelle Minton of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, who has studied the issue in depth, remarked that “the Department of Justice’s rumored memo could jeopardize the progress states with legal online betting have made at chipping away at the illegal online betting market. The original intent of the Wire Act was that it only applied to sports betting and never sought to strip states of their power to decide whether or not to legalize any form of intrastate gambling. Allowing the executive branch to bypass Congress, seemingly in the service of special interests, sets a dangerous precedent.”
