#Barr accuses Justice Department of headhunting and meddling with politics

He insisted on his absolute authority to overrule career staff, whom he said too often injected themselves into politics

“What exactly am I interfering with?” he asked.

“Under the law, all prosecutorial power is invested in the AG”

#Barr’s comments were remarkable, in that the head of the Justice Department catalogued all of the ways in which he thought his agency had gone astray over the years
#Barr said it was he, not career officials, who have ULTIMATE AUTHORITY to decide how cases should be handled, and derided less-experienced, less-senior bureaucrats who current and former prosecutors have long insisted should be left to handle their cases free from interference

2. @congressdotgov has both a cause an avenue AND AN OBLIGATION to investigate Barr himself. #ImpeachBarr
DOJ prosecutors rarely resign in protest. Nora Dannehy resigned & all 4 of the prosecutors resigned from the case of Roger Stone after Barr intervened;
3. Lead prosecutor in the case against Flynn, also withdrew after Barr’s intervention. Dannehy’s colleagues discussing her motivations with the press = unrest @doj. Line federal prosecutors don’t speak to reporters w/out authorization.

#Barr’s DOJ under investigation for political pressure during #Stone sentencing

Prosecutor #Zelinsky testified before Congress that he was told by the office of the U.S. Attorney to request a “lighter” sentence for Sone, a #Trump buddy

“Zelinsky said the U.S. Attorney, #TimothyShea, was ‘receiving heavy pressure from the highest levels of the Department of Justice to cut Stone a break, and that the U.S. Attorney’s sentencing instructions to us were based on POLITICAL CONSIDERATIONS’”

AG #Barr stepped in, saying that the sentencing recommendations from the #DOJ weren’t acceptable and were “too high” and told the prosecutors to rewrite the sentencing document.

Prosecutors resigned instead.

Mary Trump among those Demanding Congress Impeach Attorney General Bill Barr.…
On Tuesday, Attorney General Bill Barr moved in court for his Department of Justice to intervene in an explosive legal case involving Trump.

“The US Justice Department, in an extraordinary move on Tuesday, asked to take over the defense of Trump in a defamation lawsuit filed ..
against him by E. Jean Carroll, a woman who has accused Trump of sexual assault,” CNN reports. “While the alleged sexual assault occurred long before Trump became President, the Justice Department argued that it must take over because Trump’s comments spurring the defamation ..

After watching Barr at the hearings today, there is no question in my mind he is a coiled rattlesnake without a rattle, ready to strike without warning at our civil rights. He already has, and DEFENDS the attacks. #ImpeachBarr
#ImpeachBarr #ImpeachBarr #ImpeachBarr #ImpeachBarr
When he was challenged about something in a blue state, he would defend it by attacking a blue state, like NY.
I have seen what he has done in my home state of Oregon, and it has been brutal, like a crackdown in China or Venezuela, where people are beaten bloody,
and whisked away in unmarked vehicles. Were it not for social media cameras and brave reporters, we would not even know it is happening. Barr fully supports it all.

▶️No #TrumpGestapo without Bush.

▶️No Bush legacy without Obama, Pelosi, and establishment Dems.

(Centrists, ignore this thread if you hate uncomfortable facts.)

#PortlandProtests #SecretPolice #Fascism

1. Cheney, Yoo, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Bolton... familiar names to those of us who were anti-war activists during the Bush years.

2. Bush and his neocon buddies launched a brutal war based on lies and established a torture regime.

3. With the help of specious legal "justifications" from Yale lawyer John Yoo, Bush and his cronies launched an assault on civil liberties and basic human rights.

4. Today, that same Yoo is assisting Trump.…

1/ This was tweeted to me by a Pelosi fan account to cap off our exchange regarding the #PelosiMustGo hashtag. The utter lack of awareness this person had to send this is staggering.

Last I saw, Trump was still in the White House killing American democracy with a 1000 cuts.
2/ You don’t have to agree with the sentiment behind the hashtag, but to think that Pelosi has pinned Trump into squalling ineffectualness is absurd. He’s run rings around her and - here’s the quiet part - it’s because she let him, because she wants it that way.
3/ There are a variety of theories and hypotheses why that’s so (see @Pamacious and @benFranklin2018 for more). But in the end, what really matters is that we all admit it and pressure her, yet again, to do the right thing.

“Witnesses are not allowed to appear by video.” Remember when the histrionics brigade tried these obstruction tactics during Impeachment? It’s happening again. 2 Republicans just argued with Nadler about allowing the witness. The one yelling loudest was on video.Can’t make it up
“William Barr poses the greatest threat, in my lifetime to our rule of law and to public trust in it.” - Donald Ayer former Deputy Attorney General.

That’s one way to open your testimony.
Louie Gohmert is trying to drown out the testimony of Donald Ayer by ganging a gavel repeatedly to try to stop the testimony. Gohmert opts to use a mask. The bandit mask, like he’s about to rob a train. Fitting. Don’t ever let them tell you a woman is too emotional to lead.

Trump/Barr fired SDNY US Attorney Berman without cause & are trying to install Jay Clayton, who formerly represented Deutsche Bank - currently being investigated by SDNY! Clayton was NEVER a prosecutor and is going to take over one of the most important prosecutorial offices
in the country? This would be like a hospital putting a podiatrist in charge of the neurosurgery unit. Yes, Bolton is an unpatriotic profiteer, but that does not detract from the fact that he revealed that Trump promised Turkish President Erdogan that he would “take care of”
the Halkbank case (Turkish-owned bank being prosecuted by SDNY) as soon as he could get rid of “the Obama people” at the SDNY and “put his own people” in. This is presidential corruption writ large. And Barr is in it up to his neck. #ImpeachBarr

#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...

One of the most important federal prosecutors in America was suddenly removed this Friday night. Given trump and bill barr’s debasement of the Justice Dept into trump’s personal law firm this stinks to high heaven.
Right on cue, the removal of the top federal prosecutor for Manhattan on a Friday night is ringing alarm bells. I’ve been calling for bill barr’s impeachment + the revocation of his law licenses since last year for good reason: barr is out of control. #ImpeachBarr #DisbarBarr
🚨 This is a bombshell. Was the attempted stealth removal of the US Attorney done by AG barr to protect donald trump or his associates from investigation or prosecution? We need to find out.

With #Biden opening up a double-digit lead over Trump, can someone tell me why Democrats refuse to embrace popular progressive policies like #MedicareForAll that help THE PEOPLE?

With #PoliceBrutality a scourge across the nation, can someone tell me why Democrats are still giving Trump expanded surveillance powers?

With thugs like #Barr trashing the Constitution and covering for Trump, can someone tell me why Democrats refuse to #ImpeachBarr?

As @RitaKonaev notes, "Mattis had no problem disagreeing w/Obama about transgender people in the military or women in combat but won’t criticize Trump for asking foreign powers for dirt about political opponents.

This isn’t about him being above politics. This is his politics."
Excellent point here, and makes you wonder why Mattis' deference to the commander-in-chief is selectively applied in this manner 🤔

1. Impeach BARR first. It is not sufficient to start impeachment inquiries for Trump. BARR must be removed first and foremost. He is the no.1 problem right now.
2. While the list of crimes committed by Trump before and after the Presidency is the no.1 reason for outrage among most of us, Barr is the one who can actively seek to prevent investigations from being started. As you can see. He must be stopped. Stat.
3. While investigations in SDNY and state investigations in NY are not things he can stop, he CAN prevent other investigations from being started, per article. There were SEVEN investigations that were starting and he KILLED them, in order to protect Trump.

Schumer and Pelosi should resign their leadership positions. Trump is effectively above the law and they are busy working with him on infrastructure week. House Dems have the power to #impeach and IT DOES NOT MATTER if the Senate won't convict.
Every minute, every hour, every day, there's some brazen violation of our fundamental norms & values by Trump and these power-hungry GOP lawmakers.

How long are we going to tolerate the Democratic Party's passivity, the only institution big enough to protect democracy? How long?

Sen. Marsha Blackburn on Mueller's team of prosecutors: "Do you consider these lawyers to be the best and the brightest in the field?"

Barr: "Not necessarily"

The AG of the United States is disparaging his own department. Barr has got to go.
Sen. Mazie Hirono to AG Barr: "Now the American people know that you are no different from Rudy Giuliani, or Kellyanne Conway, or any of the other people who sacrificed their once-decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the Oval Office"
Sen @MazieHirono to Barr: “You lied to Congress…you did exactly what I thought you’d do, that’s why I voted against your confirmation. I expected you would try to protect the president. And indeed, you did.” #BarrHearing
