“The president again assailed the [DOJ] lawyers, saying that if he were not president, he would sue them.” Whuut? Sue them in his capacity as Stone’s co-conspirator? As fixee to Stone’s fixer?

Trump just commuted the sentence of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, once
a contestant on Trump's “Celebrity Apprentice," who tried to exchange an appointment to Barack Obama’s Senate seat for campaign contributions. A perfect storm for Donald the Quid Pro Quo Obama-hater.

Very wise advice from the great Newton Minow to Judge Amy Berman Jackson re the conflicting memos she has received re Roger Stone sentencing

Poetic justice for Injustice personified?

This is rolling thunder. One stuffed goose named Barr is cooked. 2000 DOJ alumni he can ignore. 1000 federal judges? That’s an altogether different kettle of fish.

For everyone making excuses for Trump & Barr, saying Presidents have the right to decide who gets prosecuted, who doesn't & what kind of sentence is too long for their buddy, I'll remember that under President Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, Biden or Bloomberg.

Tit for tat is just a formula for spiraling to the bottom. I say we’re better than that. I say we have to try to be better than that. Otherwise all is lost.

.@PeteButtigieg is asked what he'd do if Trump calls election a hoax and refuses to leave the White House if Buttigieg wins.

"I guess if he’s willing to do chores we can work something out,'' he says.

.@PeteButtigieg can be wicked funny. On what President-elect-Buttigieg would do if Trump loses but refuses to leave: “I guess if he’s willing to do chores, we can work something out.” 🤣😂😎

I’m proud to join 2000+ of my fellow DOJ alumni in standing up for the rule of law and the integrity of the Department. You can read our full statement here:

This bipartisan statement is far from routine. In fact, I know of absolutely no precedent. DOJ alumni don’t call for an Attorney General’s resignation lightly. Or over mere policy differences. This is about turning the Justice Department into a tool of political revenge & reward.

Never has the (mis)placement of an apostrophe revealed so much.

This is true of ALL candidates, regardless of age or party

Trying to rewrite history is a central part of what autocrats do as they wage their war on truth. Trump is following that playbook

“When he turned, he really turned, didn’t he?” said Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii). “Into a total suck-up — you can quote me on that.”

Waiting until the thugs Trump has around him come for you is not a plan. By then it’ll be far too late. Columns like this one by @MaxBoot are a wakeup call. Don’t sleep through it!
