Utah nurse, Alex Wubble, has reached a settlement worth half a million dollars after being forcibly arrested for refusing to let an officer draw blood from an unconscious patient. The incident was videotaped and highly publicized.

Wubbles said at a news conference that "I am obviously very grateful, would be the best word for it. Again, this landed in my lap. This is not something I sought out. I didn't seek out the last 4 months."

On July 26 Detective Jeff Payne handcuffed Wubbels and put her in a police car after she had refused to allow police to obtain a blood sample from a crash victim. She was doing what the law required her to do, and did not allow the police to take blood from the unconscious victim without a warrant. Payne, as a response, dragged her to a police car.

The officer was later fired, and his watch commander was demoted for violating policies.

While Trump would probably disagree with everything here, that's exactly what he did. Of course, he would probably say that he didn't fire anyone, but Sessions submitted his resignation letter himself. Which is true, but we all know how things like this are being done. He would also probably say that Session wasn't sent away because of the probe but because he was doing bad job in general. And, of course, he would most definitely lie about his own lies.
