⚖️Our First Amendment

👉Guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition.

It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices.

The hypocritical stench is strong!🤨
👉It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely.

Pence spewing alt-religious lies to promote his self-serving interests to take away your rights of life, liberty & pursuit of happiness!
👉To worship/not to worship a "God" is already a part of our "Constitution."

👉To force others to worship your "God (s)" which is NOT part of the Constitution & is what PENCE truly wants!

All the President's Men Redux 2.0!

He Lied to the American People!

You lied to Congress! You should resign! - Sen. Maize Hirono

AG Barr is still conducting himself more like the president’s attorney than a protector of the #RuleOfLaw! Sen. Kamala Harris

Evasive, disingenuous & outright deceptive answers to our questions. -
Sen. Blumenthal

Refusing to testify before the House Judiciary Committee! (hiding)

Did not review underlying evidence of Mueller Report!😱

Barr refuses to release notes of Mueller phone conversation!

No receipts 4 for U!

HJD are discussing holding Barr in "contempt." (More sweating)💦

He misled the American people with his inaccurate summary of Mueller Report.

If the House stays this impotent course of applying normalized #RuleOfLaw that’s NOT working for this illegitimately elected criminal, it’s clear by his Obstruction— Congress will only succeed in obtaining replies of litigation& stonewalling to prevent truth
The Constitution MANDATES Congress ACT, not debate should we or shouldn’t we #Impeach

Trump’s strategy is to defy subpoenas, litigate, obstruct justice until the clock runs out. He’s committed verifiable crimes & only impeachment hearings will hold him accountable.

Today during the Barr hearings, I made a list of all Trump is suing to prevent House oversight—it’s Literally EVERY item the House has requested or subpoenaed

Laws haven’t been written for this Constitutional Crisis & Nationalist takeover of the USA.

Trump’s flagrant denial of Russia’s attacking on our election sys. is nothing less than aiding/abetting Putin’s to destroy the US.
Donald’s using psychological projection by using the word “COUP”, marching the US towards a revolution in order to save him from Justice! #AMJoy
Why else do you think he keeps talking about “ Overthrew, Coup, Witchhunt, The press is the enemy of the people and his fondness for Robert E. Lee”.
Fondness for traders dictators and autocrats! Just like Robert Mueller, Donald Trump is giving you a roadmap to who he is! #AMJoy
With Donald Trump’s flagrant flouting of the rule of law can anybody guarantee he would not attempt a coup in order to stay in power? Why else would he be stacking the courts and massaging our generals? Donald’s whole demeanor is I am the Boss/Dictator and you’re the peon! #AMJoy

Delighted to be in New York for the launch of #Trialwatch with brilliant @BarHumanRights colleagues @stephencragg1 & @SamuelZimran. BHRC conducts independent trial monitoring across many countries & we value the spotlight brought by trial observations.

Do say hi if you are here!
After a touch of stardust, the #Trialwatch panel has kicked off with a heavyweight #JournalismShouldNotBeACrime panel @MFFahmy11 @cdeloire @jrezaian @JameelJaffer @mariaressa chaired by Helena Kennedy QC. Chilling to hear experiences of journalists imprisoned. Why are they there?
As @MFFahmy11 talks about watching the world from the cage in the Egyptian courtroom, wondering whether the world is watching, a reminder why trial monitoring is so important. @BarHumanRights has monitored trials in Egypt and has raised concerns too on #fairtrials #cages.

@WalshFreedom Joe this is exactly who trump has always been. We tried to tell people like you, but you let your dislike of liberals cloud your judgement. Help fix it by getting Republican lawmakers to jump off the trump train. He's destroying the #RuleOfLaw & he's a traitor to America.
The proof of treason lies in the digital campaign #ProjectAlamo. I figured this out in 2016 & got called crazy. FSBbook took down my posts & suspended me dozens of times until they admitted they worked with the trump campaign.
@WalshFreedom Big tech helped too. This was a coordinated effort by big money, right wing, billionaires to destroy democracy. People like you have been lied to & helped propagate their lies for money. You ushered this into being.

1/Staggering conflicts of interest by the man chasing self employed doctors off of our wards and even out of the country @MelJStride MP by presiding over the forced false employment without rights of the genuinely self employed #IR35 ...& the loan charge architect @DevonLiveNews
2/this follows the previous revelation that @MelJStride, who heads up @HMRCgovuk, was making more than his ministerial salary doing PR for high profile corporate tax avoider Amazon. Furthermore he did not declare this conflict of interest to parliament.…
3/This MP's loan charge policies are reportedly driving taxpayers to suicide because they undermine the #RuleOfLaw by changing the rules retrospectively. Something which was predicted but continued regardless. Eg a rather prominent warning by @IHPA_UK…

THREAD @EU_Commission asks 4 reflection when action already overdue. EU may be out of time because #2019Elections could produce a @Europarl_EN & Commission with 2 many MEPs (including mainstream) who don't want to protect #RuleOfLaw #Vote4Values /1
Positive - @EU_Commission Communication reverses its position & finally acknowledges that the tools it has in place are inadequate to protect #RuleofLaw. Something @LibertiesEU & academics have maintained since 2014. /2
Positive - important tools in pipeline: linking EU funding to respect 4 #RuleofLaw & funding for rights groups to create grassroots support among public to resist damaging reforms at national level. Both measures suggested by @LibertiesEU /3

1/25 #THREAD On the #ethics of Jody Wilson-Raybould recording a convo with Michael Wernick RE #SNCLavalin

Read further to debunk the #CDNmedia & partisan spin + public's grasp of #CDNpoli #CDNlaw that's circulating social media

(Ex. of that mythology)
2/25 #SNCLavalin #CDNpoli #CDNlaw #Ethics

It's not possible for pundits & partisan actors to have their cake & eat it too

Due to the barrage of biased misinformation about Jody Wilson-Raybould's role as attorney general vs justice minister, it's necessary to explain the basics
3/25 If Jody Wilson-Raybould assumed the role of solicitor to the govt in this #SNCLavalin matter, it wouldn't be unethical to record her calls w clients & witnesses #CDNpoli

This is standard practice in #CDNlaw, so lawyers don't forget details & properly document billable hours

Speaking of @ManfredWeber, just finished reading his #ruleoflaw half-baked 'plan' which promises action tomorrow (an empty promise) by poorly merging past proposals (without credit) to justify inaction today (as expected)

The only emergency is the threat to the #Constitution, the #SeparationofPowers and the #RuleofLaw posed by this so called @POTUS. A sniveling, narcissistic, manchild and wannabe Dictator.
2/ Most Americans, sadly, don't seem to see what's happening here. It's no longer about "Politics" as he's so skillfully framed it. It's about the US Constitution and something called #SeparationofPowers. The Senate #Republicans finally slapped his hand.
3/ But his inevitable Veto of the measure and the Senate's inability (or unwillingness) to override that veto is just one more huge step towards #Authoritarianism. You see Congress controlling the "Power of the Purse" is just one way to keep a Dictator president in check.

#RuleofLaw backsliding in Poland: Have been catching up with recent development & here is a quick thread/update on a seriously deteriorating situation

cc @Verfassungsblog

1/ Evidence gathered by @oko_press strongly suggests MoJ official(s) and/or NCJ member(s) are behind leaks of judges’ personal data to anonymous Twitter account which has been bullying, slandering & insulting pro-rule of law judges these past few weeks:…
2/ Worth noting: the anonymous troll appears to be sometimes getting documents or correspondence before the relevant judges themselves

Sorry to have to contradict you there, Mr President. It doesn’t boil down to a simple binary choice like that. Yes, these may be hectic times, but diplomacy is all about embracing complexity rather than simplistic one-liners.

[3... 2... 1... THREAD]
We collectively missed the train of history in 2011, when the EU did not stand up for human rights and democracy in our neighbourhood but preferred to swallow the old lie that authoritarianism means stability. Here’s a topical article by @Mikepeeljourno:…
“Realpolitik means that you have to talk in a world of craziness with the crazy people and the totalitarian people,” says an EU member-state diplomat. “You cannot just live on your tiny island and say you are not concerned.” 👈 I swear there’s a chap like this in every EU meeting

If Trump is innocent of wrongdoing, there's no reason to suppress the #MuellerReport.

Suppressing the report shows that Trump / his admin have something to hide. #transparency #RuleOfLaw

Call your Senators:
This has now become crucial. PLEASE call your Senators! #CTA #MuellerReport…
This is consistent with Barr's confirmation and Kellyanne hinting last night that the public may never see the #MuellerReport .…

Trump’s declaration of a national emergency is contrived & without factual basis. He even admitted he "didn't need to do it." It's an autocratic move--unconstitutional. Trump cannot make appropriation decisions; that's Congress' constitutional power. 1/3

There's already strong bipartisan pushback against Trump. Congress will use the statutory process to terminate the declaration. Lawsuits have been or are about to be filed--@Public_Citizen, @CREWcrew, @AGBecerra, @protctdemocracy, @ACLU. 2/3

Even if Trump can show that the declaration is constitutional, legally, he must show that using the funds is for the "national defense." There’s little chance he can convince the courts of this.

This wall will never happen. 3/3

This was barely a Blip on the MSM's Radar Screen, covered locally on TV & Print News.

They had their Computers, their Servers, their Phones & Devices.
Their Bank Accounts, the IP Addresses of their Customers, clients & Patrons & transactional info....

1) #RBG not being seen since November is causing ?’s of her health & ability to perform duties of the court. Rumors she’s in a medically induced coma, or dead after #foxnews live graphic, are increasing demands for #ProofOfLife @POTUS @seanhannity @StormIsUponUs @bigredwavenow
2) Attacks on ‘pledge of allegiance’, ‘In God We Trust’ & Catholics are the left’s STRATEGIC planned effort in the lead up to the NEXT nominee. The rush-to-judgement of the Covenant Catholic #MAGAkids was part of that narrative, but BACKFIRED when the TRUTH came out.#WWG1WGA

Perfectly normal reaction by senior officials within @MaltaGov (particularly OPM) to a minor court decision shuttering a further avenue for investigation into #PanamaPapers on technical grounds.

The #ruleoflaw in #Malta is fine and there is no #disinformation or spin whatsoever.
Case in point: @anticorruption’s plummeting ranking is also blamed:
Case in point: @VeniceComm's concerns over rule of law are evidently based on one person (previously Daphne, now someone else who dares call them a crook).

Also interesting how impossible threshold for courts is implicitly being dictated:…

Romania takes over the EU Presidency at a critical time, when several legislative negotiations need to be concluded ahead of European elections. Read my thoughts in this thread 👇
First, I wish them the best of luck. At the same time, the Romanian government must deliver on their commitments with regard to the #ruleoflaw.
The reforms of the judiciary, of the criminal code and also the NGO law must fully reflect the recommendations of the Venice Commission, and be re-assessed by this expert body before enactment.

Vehicle registration fee increase: Under SB 1, California’s controversial gas tax and car registration increase, drivers will pay escalated fees of up to $175 more for vehicle registration at the Department of Motor Vehicles, based on the vehicle’s value.
SB 54, called the “California Values Act,” already restricts the ability of state and local police in California to cooperate with U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents.

Supporters of #TheBuhariDoctrine of national security easily cite the side comment (dictum) of a Justice of #Nigeria's Supreme Court in the case of Mujahid Asari Dokubo v. Federal Republic of #Nigeria decided when OBJ was President on 8 June 2006.…
In July 2009, during, under OBJ's successor, #UMYA, Yusuf Mohammed, the founder of #BokoHaram was executed extra-judicially by @PoliceNG. His killing became the proximate cause of an insurgency that has triggered multiple forms of lethal violence in #Nigeria
