1/Today, one of the individuals - Brittan Atkinson - who threatened my life during our (@AndrewBakaj) representation of IC #whistleblower in 2019-20 was sentenced to 12 months, 1 day (felony) in jail (& 3 years probation) for his actions.

#RuleOfLaw #Justice
2/His death threat was actually one of several I received, particularly in Nov 2019, after GOP Trump operatives discovered my - gasp - 2017 "coup" tweet. I was referring to #SallyYates firing & lawful, constitutional impeachment proceedings.…
3/These death threats came in wake of President Trump personally attacking me. He called me out at political rally, called me a "scumbag" & said I should be "sued for treason" (doesn't exist, BTW, but sounds real good).…

To be clear: #SallyYates is still very much still in the running for AG. And the case for her appointment is strong.…
The failure of the DOJ to bring charges against the ofcr who killed Eric Garner is among Bill Barr’s worst actions as AG. But it was Yates who stood w/Civil Rights Div attys & pushed to make it happen during the waning days of the Obama Administration.
Less rumor, more discussion of the records and what kind of AG we need at this perilous moment would be great.

Assuming they aren't blocked by the Senate, @JoeBiden Cabinet appointments will be historic, and in nearly every case, spectacular. @politico list:…
and @Independent list:…
Biden Cabinet/2
Big #COVID19 understatement:
"Biden’s picks to lead the Dept of Health and Human Services @HHSGov and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention @CDCgov will inherit a massive public health crisis."
No solid CDC names yet, but...
Biden Cab/3
Most sources agree list-toppers include:
@StateDept Sec. - @AmbassadorRice or Tony Blinken
@DOJPH Atty-General - #SallyYates or Doug Jones
@HHSGov - Vivek Murthy or Michelle Lujan Grisham
White House Chief of Staff - @RonaldKlain

@NPRinskeep @MorningEdition @NPR Listened to #SallyYates interview this AM on @KUT.
I will answer the question she wisely ducked.

Trump MUST be prosecuted for any crimes committed. & IF convicted, must NOT be pardoned. Sentencing TBD. But a trial MUST happen! The accusations against Trump are worse > Nixon
@NPRinskeep @MorningEdition @NPR @KUT The accusations against Trump are worse > Nixon.

Nixon tolerated corruption.
Trump IS corruption.

#WeThePeople are a nation of Laws.
The #POTUS is not a king.
The #POTUS is a public servant.

It’s about time they were all reminded of that.
@NPRinskeep @MorningEdition @NPR @KUT Should Trump go to jail for allowing the deaths of more than 175,000 Americans, because his political ambition was more important to him than these lives, & the collateral losses to the nation?!⚠️

He & the people he appointed, are responsible for many AWFUL things!👿

Analysis🔎by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork

In a newly unredacted footnote from the @JusticeOIG #IGReport on #FISAabuse, the urgency behind the @FBI obtaining a #FISA warrant on Trump campaign adviser @CarterWPage becomes clear. (Thread👇)…
In the #IGReport, #Horowitz detailed a last-minute flurry of activity that transpired ahead of the issuance of the @CarterWPage #FISA, including a possible intervention from then-Deputy @FBI Director McCabe, to push a seemingly reluctant #DOJ official, Stuart Evans, for approval.
“Footnote 276” was initially redacted in the #IGReport, but was declassified, among other footnotes, following a request from @SenRonJohnson and @ChuckGrassley.

In the declassified footnote, IG #Horowitz elaborated on the urgency behind #LisaPage’s communications with #McCabe:

Federal prosecutors say #MichaelFlynn should get jail time. They are asking for the guideline sentence of 0-6 months in prison, citing Flynn's failure to accept responsibility and his efforts to undermine prosecutors.

Six months is a walk for this guy. He deserves far more.
#MichaelFlynn was a foreign agent while was working for Trump's campaign. And against direct advice from Obama to Trump to steer clear of Flynn, who Obama fired, Trump made him NSA. #SallyYates resigned over her warning to Trump about Flynn, for anyone who forgets the trajectory.
The guy who led the chants of #LockHerUp at the RNC and who tweeted every day in the weeks before the election about Hillary deserves to be in prison himself. He also promoted #Pizzagate and put the US at risk.

The @FBI’s #FISA warrant to #Spy on Trump campaign adviser @CarterWPage—a key part of the agency’s investigation of the Trump campaign—has been fraught with irregularities.

By Jeff Carlson @themarketswork (Thread 👇)…
Ahead of the release of the #DOJ Inspector General's #FISAReport, we provide an overview of what exactly the known irregularities are.

The initiation of the investigation by @JusticeOIG was originally announced on March 28, 2018.
However, the #IGReport has been repeatedly pushed back and delayed.

IG #Horowitz declared his area of original focus within his initiation announcement:

#TrishaAnderson–once No. 2 lawyer at @FBI’s Office of General Counsel–was involved in all significant events of the Trump campaign counterintelligence investigation.

She knew of the investigation before it officially opened, according to her testimony.…
A transcript of #Anderson’s testimony, which was reviewed for this article, reveals that she read all of @FBI’s FD302 forms detailing information that the author of the #SteeleDossier, former British spy #ChristopherSteele, had provided to high ranking #DOJ official #BruceOhr.
Anderson says she personally signed off on the original application for a warrant to spy on former Trump campaign adviser #CarterPage without having read it.

@FBI relied heavily on the unverified information in the #SteeleDossier to obtain the #FISA warrant. #FISAGate

#Deutsche and other banks given “waivers” from @realDonaldTrump
Yes, #Obama did temporary waivers, making them pay for the 2008 crisis, w/#SallyYates working towards them paying penalties to the victims, working w/the U.K.‘s charges etc...NO, IT IS NOT THE SAME THING!

(1) An excellent thread that brings it all together and brings you up to date with all things DOJ and FBI.

Vindication is near.

Below, I add some photos and things I saved over the course of the year.

The links to look at for the first #indictments by #Mueller are, per source, a money-laundering link between #Manafort, #Flynn & KUSHNER.
The link between/among these three? Trump & Russia. But the fact that the prosecutor has indeed brought indictments is itself huge.
When I first wrote about #Flynn last year, I noted that @POTUS44 had warned Trump about him. SEVERAL TIMES. Obama's no alarmist.
