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.
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.
