Hey, guess what? Trump and Rick Perry were shipping Plutonium to Nevada without telling the state:

The Department Of Energy, led by noted expert Rick Perry, secretly shipped half a ton of “weapons-grade” plutonium to a site 90 miles from Las Vegas. The shipments came despite decades of objections from state officials, and over concerns of both environmental groups and scientists.

As The Hill reports, information on the shipments only became public because Nevada sued to stop what the state thought were still only plans to ship material from South Carolina. But in court, officials learned that some time before November 2018, Trump and Perry had already delivered a gift of 1,000 pounds of element Pu. The dates, means of delivery, and route the plutonium took in crossing the country are still secret.

Driving up the anger-counter is the fact that the DOE was continuing to pretend to negotiate with the state of Nevada as if the shipments were still upcoming. While the state government raised objections and thought it was negotiating over how any shipments might be conducted safely, behind the scenes the plutonium was already arriving. As the state’s Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak made clear, “They lied to the State of Nevada, misled a federal court, and jeopardized the safety of Nevada’s families and environment.” Sisolak declared himself “beyond outraged” by the DOE’s action.
