When Barr was appointed AG in February ‘19, SDNY failed to follow up on its interview requests and the Trump Org investigation simply ended.
SDNY didn’t announce they’d closed the case and didn’t tell the Manhattan DA; they just sat on it for six months!
I was watching Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC.He said something we all need to think about.
If we don’t flip the senate,specifically Mitch McConnell,having a Democratic President won’t matter.He will never bring items to the floor,that all the Dems are running on.
VOTE MITCH OUT!
Don’t forget history! Remember the Congress-of-NO during President Obama’s term? That’s exactly what they did then. The Senate is MORE important than the Executive. If Dems keep the House and flip the Senate and DT gets back in, impeach again and remove. Done deal!
Next Seven Constitutional Amendments:
• End all forms of dark money
• End Gerrymandering
• End The Electoral College
• Everyone is a Registered Voter at 18
• Two weeks to Vote, everyone gets a day off work
• Hand-marked paper ballots
• Weaken the Power of the Presidency
All in on these! 👍
BREAKING: Assange’s lawyer claimed in court that Trump offered to pardon Julian Assange if he covered up Russia’s involvement in hacking the DNC.
TRANSLATION: This is criminal obstruction of justice and an impeachable offense. Impeach the motherfucker, again.
Rohrabacher in 2017 offered a Trump pardon if Assange would absolve Russia of DNC hack, Assange's lawyer said. Assange refused, the lawyer said. w/@BoothWilliam
In a fully functioning republic, this would trigger an FBI investigation of Rohrabacher. But this is a Barr Republic.
A month before Trump got the nomination, GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was taped in a private conversation telling other GOP leaders "There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump." Paul Ryan swore everyone there to secrecy.
OMG: "Trump offered to pardon Julian Assange if he agreed to cover up the involvement of Russia in hacking emails from the Democratic National Committee, which were later published by WikiLeaks, a London court was told Wednesday." via @thedailybeast
Re-upping this thread in light of @maddow’s excellent reporting last night. The link between Barr taking the helm at DOJ and the abrupt halt of SDNY’s Trump Organization investigation is clear. Whether through Berman’s complicity or not, SDNY’s historic independence is no more.
A House bill that would lower prescription drug costs PASSED but McConnell & Collins hate it. Collins has taken $1.4 M dollars of drug & insurance companies money.
EVERY American would benefit but Collins is standing in the way. HELP MAINE DEFEAT COLLINS.
