AG can overrule prosecutors, but it’s highly unusual to change a sentencing recommendation to seek a lower sentence. Barr & Shea did it for Trump’s friend, and only after his tweet. DOJ needs stronger leaders to protect its independence. via @NYTimes
@TheJusticeDept Okay, do you really think the American people want to see this in place of how you're going to stop Bill Barr from hurting America for Donald Trump? The dark days are here and the people want action! #BarrMustResign Now!
Lots of detail here on why DOJ employees are concerned Barr cares more about the President & his own power than about the institution he took an oath to serve: “career employees...worry Barr is under undue political influence from the President.”
Superbly captured, @PatChappatte! (*)
