Donald Ayer: “Barr doesn’t believe in the central tenet of our gov’t—that no one is above the law. [He wants] a virtually autocratic executive. Given our national trust in a rule of law no one can subvert, it’s not too strong to say Barr is un-American.”
I know you've seen headlines about former DOJ officials calling for AG Barr to resign, but read their actual letter.
This part strikes me as really important in terms of what happens next, and how the country can potentially pull back from the brink:
Trump & Barr masterfully executed a tag-team of replacement of Liu w/Shea & then assigned outside prosecutors to examine work in the DC US Attorney’s office.
Barr is Trump’s puppet, acting as his personal lawyer rather than the people’s atty. He’s undermining our democracy by interfering in the sentencing of Roger Stone & seeking a review of Flynn’s case. Barr claims this is ordinary procedure - he’s an ordinary LIE! He’s got to go!
