#AGBarr is more of a tRvmp General than an Attorney General, purging anyone seen as a threat to the Criminal President and doing it with iron fisted impunity.

His latest firing of SDNY US Attorney #Berman is...

...only the latest! While the above article focuses on how (and why) it was done I'd like to take a closer look at why it was done so hurriedly, right now. Of the many dirty little dealings with foreign govts...

..this one with Turkey less than a year ago surely got missed by many of us. Seems #AGBarr had to step in to "negotiate a settlement" with one of Turkeys biggest state owned banks who had violated (get this) sanctions...

MAJEUR. #Barr vient d'annoncer qu'il a demandé à #Trump de virer directement le procureur fédéral #Berman à qui il reproche sa "non collaboration"(cf. mon enfilade👇) C'est du rarement vu. L'indépendance de la justice US vis-à-vis du président est en péril.washingtonpost.com/politics/geoff…
2) En faisant virer #Berman par #Trump, le ministre de la Justice #Barr évite n partie l'écueil juridique décrit dans mon enfilade matinale. Ce titre 28 §541c de la loi fédérale permet au président de virer tout procureur fédéral, sans mention de la façon dont il a été nommé...
3)... mais il reste quand même 1 grosse incertitude car jamais un procureur fédéral intérimaire dont la nomination devenue définitive après 4 mois d'intérim est prononcée par les juges- comme #Berman- n'a été renvoyé par le président. Discussion ici.

This is unbelievable. The handling has been woeful. Just read this statement from the US Attorney General. #Berman #WilliamBarr
Am sure the reason #WilliamBarr wanted to force #GeoffreyBerman to resign last night was to avoid what you have now: @realDonaldTrump firing the man who was -err- investigating Trump associates. Not ideal optics
This is less Saturday Night Massacre than surreal Saturday. @realDonaldTrump has just left the White House saying he has had no part in the firing of #GeoffreyBerman. But #WilliamBarr in letter he released earlier said the president HAD fired him. Which is it? Both can't be true

L'info de la nuit US. Le ministre de la Justice de #Trump, #Barr, annonce qu'il remplace Geoffrey Berman, procureur fédéral pour le district de Manhattan qui dirige 1 enquête majeure sur #Giuliani, avocat du président. Berman répond qu'il ne partira pas. washingtonpost.com/national-secur…
2) Cette info ne peut qu' évoquer historiquement le "massacre du samedi soir" de Nixon en octobre 1973, virant 2 ministres de la Justice successifs avant de trouver 1 sbire intérimaire- Robert Bork- pour limoger le procureur indépendant Cox qui enquêtait sur lui et le Watergate.
3) Tout est en effet singulier dans l'annonce de #Barr, sur ordre de #Trump, intervenant nuitamment un vendredi soir pour nommer à la place de #Berman 1 homme sans aucune expérience de procureur, #Clayton, actuel patron de l'autorité des marchés... justice.gov/opa/pr/attorne…

@_iAlyssa_ I love this subject 😁. Had these for a few yrs.😎

A name isn't JUST a name. Why do I want to say Smollet instead of Smulevitz? 👇

Why do I keep 🤔 about the name Gilead?👇 This is just tip of that berg. #Berman too? #Lampert as in Lampert Scary Mansion STL?
@_iAlyssa_ Ukraine - Russia...

Oh this is one small vein. It grows and grows.

I copied old NSP articles re: 1960s trail of Chicago👉STL👉KC👉NORLEANS & Las Vegas. #Carnahan #Slay #Venezian #Cueto #Costello
@_iAlyssa_ It's not just the Auerbach family (real name) but they are a part of The HUB. I just happened to start with them. There's many more. #Northwestern is a 🔑too.

His father changed family name to Emanuel (after his brother) prior coming to US from Isreal. 🤨 #Levels of 💪 in HUB.
