By no means out of disrespect or compassion.
I want #KatharineThornton to have a name.
To not be a nameless casualty.
She was a person.
She had true feelings & emotions.
Today’s events need to be about Katharine & her suffering, and ultimately her courage. To name her attacker
It is not about him.
It’s about her strength to confront someone in such high office and say - You did this to me.
I relate closely to Katharine.
Following the Royal Commission into institutional child sexual abuse.
I confronted a 40 year old demon.
Boxed away. Rapped in layer upon layer of tape and do not open labels.
It was the tragic loss of my mum that tore open that box and the Redress Scheme gave me the voice I never had.
It was not easy. Rejection on first complaint. Then further evidence, psychological support,

"Washington, too, will continue to strive to ensure #Netanyahu, #Gantz, and the “200 to 300” other Israeli officials never see their day in court."

"...the move would be so illegal under international #law that #Israel’s #AttorneyGeneral’s office warned #Netanyahu that doing so would be “indefensible” in front of the #ICC and would open up top #Israeli officials to prosecution."

Ballots for #attorneygeneral began hitting @indgop delegates' mailboxes this week; they're due back July 9, with a winner to be announced the next day. A quick #thread on how this is going to work: 1/
There are four candidates, but it takes a majority, not a plurality, to win. At a live convention, this would mean multiple ballots; the last-place candidate would be eliminated each time until someone has a majority. (That's what happened in 2016, also with 4 candidates.) 2/
To translate that to a mail-in ballot, Republicans are using a ranked-choice ballot. Say the first-ballot results are:

Derek Jeter 396
Larry Walker 304
Barry Bonds 241
Omar Vizquel 209

That's 1,150 votes, so it takes 576 to win. 3/

#RobertMueller will be testifying before the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees on July 17.

Here are some crucial questions that should be asked when he testifies (Thread 👇). | Article by Jeff Carlson @themarketswork…
1) Did #AttorneyGeneral Barr in any way misrepresent your 448-page report?

#Mueller failed to identify the grand jury info in the #MuellerReport. Barr noted that “it immediately meant that you know it was going to be a period of weeks before we could get the report out.”
2) Who actually wrote Volume I and Volume II of the #MuellerReport?

At this point, it isn’t known with certainty if #Mueller had any hand in writing the report directly, or if he simply served in an oversight capacity.

The narrative of #ObstructionOfJustice originated prior to the conclusion of the #MuellerReport. (Thread 👇)

Less than 6 months after #Mueller’s appointment, @BrookingsInst published “Presidential Obstruction of Justice: The Case of Donald J. Trump.”…
The report outlined a scenario whereby #Mueller would refer his #Obstruction findings to #Congress, which would then take up the matter and continue investigating.

The report also discussed ways Congress could #ImpeachTrump, mentioning the word “#Impeachment” 90 times.
2 of the report's authors, Barry Berke & @NormEisen, were later retained by #HouseJudiciaryCommittee Chairman @RepJerryNadler on a consulting basis as special oversight counsels to the Democrat majority staff.…

#AttorneyGeneral Barr is working to review the techniques used to investigate Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Here are 10 key questions that remain to be answered in the scandal that has become known as #Spygate (Thread 👇):

Commentary by @JasperFakkert…
1. What was the role that @CIA and John Brennan’s ‘Interagency Task Force’ played?

Former CIA Director Brennan admitted that he passed intelligence received from the #UK on the Trump campaign to the @FBI with the intention of having them investigate it:
“It served as the basis…
… for the FBI investigation to determine whether such collusion [or] cooperation occurred.”

Notably, Brennan met with then-head of the #UK #Spy agency @GCHQ, Robert Hannigan, in #Washington in 2016. The meeting was unusual, since Hannigan’s US equivalent…

News Analysis 🔎 | Over the past month, there has been an inversion of people’s opinions of #RodRosenstein.

Those who praised him are now claiming he has been running interference for President Trump, while his critics have begun to reassess his actions.…
#Rosenstein submitted his resignation letter to the president on April 29, with an effective date of May 11.

Rosenstein had previously discussed his intent to resign from his post when a new #AttorneyGeneral was confirmed, following the resignation of @JeffSessions
…After the appointment of #WilliamBarr as #AttorneyGeneral in February, however, #Rosenstein stayed on to assist #Barr in guiding him through the #MuellerReport.

Rosenstein had knowledge of the more intimate details of the case and its underlying focus.

1/ Earlier today, The Washington Post reported that on 27 March 2019 - three days after William Barr released his four-page summary of Robert Mueller's report - Mueller wrote a letter to the Justice Department.
2/ He complained to the Attorney General that Barr's summary of Mueller's investigation of President Trump “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of his investigation. Robert Mueller followed up the next day with a 15-minute phone call with Barr.

The @FBI General Counsel @DanaBoente has proven to be a key player in the Trump Admin.

Few, however, are aware of the many crucial positions he has held—and why he may have held them. (Thread 👇)…
During President Trump’s first 2 years in office, Boente served as the Acting #AttorneyGeneral, Acting Deputy Attorney General, Acting Head of @TheJusticeDept's #NationalSecurity Division, and currently serves as the @FBI’s General Counsel.
To more fully understand Boente’s role, we need to go back to Jan. 13, 2017, when President @BarackObama issued a last-minute #ExecutiveOrder that altered the line of succession within #DOJ.

The reporter told the #AttorneyGeneral she felt he was being “quite generous” to Trump, quoting #Barr saying the president faced “an unprecedented situation” and noting he discussed how the president was frustrated with the probe. (Transcript in thread 👇)…
1/ #BarrPressConference
Reporter — “What do you say to people on both sides of the aisle who say that you are trying to protect the president?”

#Barr — “Well, actually, the statements about his sincere beliefs are recognized in the report, that there was substantial evidence…
2/ #BarrPressConference
… for that, so I’m not sure what your basis is for saying that I’m being generous to the president.”

Reporter — “You said he faced an unprecedented situation. It just seems like there’s a lot of going out of your way to acknowledge—”

On Thursday, #AttorneyGeneral #WilliamBarr held a conference to go over the findings of the #MuellerReport.…
2/ #AttorneyGeneral #WilliamBarr said nobody in the Trump campaign, or any American, colluded with #Russia to interfere in the 2016 elections.

Barr said #Russia did interfere, but nobody on the Trump campaign colluded with them.
3/ #Barr also said that it was #Russia who provided the emails to @Wikileaks. No member of the Trump campaign, however, worked with or coordinated with @Wikileaks in the release of the documents.

He also said no one on the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia in the #Hacking.

@YashwantSinha, A Shourie & @pbhushan1 are seeking a review of the #SupremeCourt's #Rafale judgment on 4 main grounds:

1) Judgment did not deal with the main prayer of one of the petitioners (P Bhushan): filing of an #FIR & a #CBI led investigation
2) Judgment relied on a large number of major factual errors
3) Critical material evidence was suppressed from the Court
4) Judgment did not consider critical facts submitted by the petitioners

So a few people have asked me about my reaction to @DoloresHuerta endorsing @KamalaHarris for her Presidential campaign in 2020. My thoughts on the matter and given with as much respect as I can give, as a person with Mexican family, and not quite fluent in Spanish. #DesculpaMe
1) @DoloresHuerta is a titan in Central Valley politics and for Mexican-Americans everywhere. She is often overlooked in comparison with #CesarChavez, but my understanding is that Dolores was more of the logistics of the @UFWF while #Cesar provided the #Vision. Sounds familiar!
2) In fact, my own Grandmother (mother’s mother) says that she marched with both @DoloresHuerta and #CesarChavez in the 1970’s. I recall the last time I asked her about her stories, I told her that I heard Dolores was fierce #AF. She concurred unequivocally.

President @realDonaldTrump made an outstanding decision in nominating William Barr to serve as the next #AttorneyGeneral.

Mr. Barr is highly capable, highly respected and will provide new and much-needed leadership for the Department of Justice.
@realDonaldTrump Having previously served as AG under President George H.W. Bush, Mr. Barr is a known quantity, a man of the highest integrity and character, and has an impeccable reputation.

He will provide a strong and steady hand to the fine men and women at the Department of Justice.
@realDonaldTrump I will do everything in my power to push him through the Senate Judiciary Committee and onto the floor of the Senate for eventual confirmation as soon as possible.

Well done Mr. President.
