“Fascism is a form of radical, right-wing, authoritarian ultranationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society & of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.” - WikiPedia @Wikipedia
⏰ FEAR? How are the @TheJusticeDept & @FBI dealing with all this? Everyone “just following orders"? Going along to get along? Is their allegiance to Trump, the @GOP, some ideology, or to the constitution? Are they powerless? Looking for excuses & pretexts to hide in the shadows?
⏰ IF #MUELLER AND HIS TEAM REMAIN SILENT, while their report is mischaracterized, used as propaganda, twisted into a #Barr #Rosenstein #Trump cover-up and whitewash... then how are they any different from Trump and Barr? SPEAK UP! @TheJusticeDept @FBI

1. #Maddow @MaddowBlog Rachel ON FIRE re #BarrTestimony #BarrCoverUp re #MuellerLetters. And that Trump was well within his rights to fire a prosecutor if he thought the charges against him were unfair. And that #HillaryClinton was the problem, not #PutinPuppet Trump... @DeAdder
2. #Maddow @MaddowBlog #HillaryClinton ON FIRE " #Barr is Trump's Defense Attorney, NOT the job he auditioned for, #AttorneyGeneral. "This goes to the core of whether we are a nation of laws or a nation of men." Gawd I miss @HillaryClinton
3.#Maddow #HillaryClinton tells Rachel "Get back to the business of calling witnesses who are mentioned in the #MuellerReport and begin to tell the public story." @HillaryClinton also discusses the possibility #AGBarr could be held in #ContemptOfCongress

“Is anyone else worried that many, if not all, of the 12 criminal investigation referrals that we learned about in the report are under the supervision of the now exposed political hack Barr?” - @clairecmc
#Barr #Mueller #BarrCoverUp ⏰Barr will go on offense, and suggest investigations into the investigators to deflect and sow fear @TheJusticeDept @FBI. He will also warn against leaking and promise to prosecute leakers. GET READY!
#BarrCoverUp #BarrWhiteWash @TheJusticeDept “Unless Mueller is ready to fight Barr in public, which he will not do, a rogue Attorney General is much more powerful than we commonly understand, and in fact has massive power to protect the guilty and prosecute the innocent.”

#MuellerReport: #Mueller did not have confidence that a crime had NOT been committed. #Barr left this out of his 4 pager. #SpinJob #BarrCoverUp justice.gov/storage/report… … …
#Mueller clearly DID take into consideration the #DOJ policy that a sitting President cannot be indicted. His findings on obstruction are based around that. #SpinJob #BarrCoverUp justice.gov/storage/report… … … …

Barr says Congressional leaders will be given the "public version" of the Mueller report.

So the branch of government charged with OVERSIGHT of the White House will not obtain any more information than the general public?

That's insane, if correct.
Don't look at us like that, Rod "Reek" Rosenstein, you know damn well how you got there.
Barr is acting like Trump's personal attorney.
He has literally repeated "no collusion" over and over and over again.
(I hope someone is counting.)

Barr is now presenting Trump as a VICTIM who faced an "unprecedented situation" when he came into office due to the scrutiny.

Okay I’m sitting here with a terrible sinus cold and a throat torn up from coughing, and I guess if I’m already suffering I might as well watch the #BarrCoverUp #Propaganda press conference.

Talking heads said Billy-boy would stick to process, but he’s already spinning content.
“No collusion by any Americans in IRA [the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll farm] by any American.” Um, okay, Billy, but that’s not the same as no one associated with the campaign coordinating with any Russians.
He’s talking about Wikileaks now. Says publishing the leaked emails would not be criminal unless the leaker also participated in the hacking. I’m no lawyer, but this seems like a shady way to let Roger Stone off the hook. #Propaganda #BarrCoverUp

Special Counsel spokesman Peter Carr: "Neither Mueller nor anyone else from the special counsel’s prosecution team will be in attendance at the Barr press conference."
via @dsamuelsohn @politico #Maddow

These are the actions of a prosecution team who was shut down by by Barr.

Rosenstein investigated @BillClinton for Ken Starr along with Brett #Kavanaugh.
#Barr is buddies with #Mueller & has ties to Russian investments and the infamous Alfa Bank.
These are the "redactors".
This is the #BarrCoverUp team.

And let's not forget #Barr's instrumental role in the Iran/Contra whitewash and cover-up.

In 1989, Barr refused to release a damning DOJ memo to Congress, instead, only providing a “summary of principal conclusions” [sound familiar?] that omitted "some of the most consequential & incendiary conclusions." #BarrCoverUp
by @rgoodlaw @just_security
justsecurity.org/63635/barrs-pl…
Per @rgoodlaw: "Barr’s efforts in 1989 did not serve the Justice Dept well...when the OLC opinion was finally made public, it's true content, given what Barr told the American people and testified before Congress, remains much to his discredit."
WATCH: Law professor @rgoodlaw details Barr's duplicitous actions to bury the truth or mischaracterize it to Congress & the American people in 1989. Barr won't bat an eye at tarnishing his "reputation" by doing the same thing again.

Media need to stop portraying the #MuellerProbe as having failed to reach a 'conclusion'. The establishment of any crimes was SUBSIDIARY to the counterintelligence investigation. We need to know what #Mueller found, not what he DID NOT FIND. #BarrCoverUp:
In his letter appointing the Special Counsel, #Rosenstein authorized #Mueller to "conduct the investigation confirmed by then-FBI Director James B. Comey" [in his testimony of 3/20/17]. Here is how #Comey characterized the investigation in that testimony: washingtonpost.com/news/post-poli…
#Barr is disingenuously attempting to frame #Mueller's findings as "binary". A blatant attempt at cover up. If #Mueller found any evidence POTUS or anyone in his campaign/admin was/is compromised we MUST know to in order to ensure our #NationalSecurity.

#Mueller's Mandate was very broad. He was not solely tasked with assessing criminal liability. #BarrCoverUp
Media is botching coverage of #BarrCoverUp. Folks need to understand how badly we're being played. Pls help spread awareness by RTing this info on Mueller's mandate (focussing on #Rosenstein/#Comey's original words). Mueller was NOT limited to an assessment of criminal liability:

Feel free to throw in your 2 cents, 'cause if you're feeling like I am after #TheMuellerReport landed, you're more than a little angry & concerned about #BillBarrsComedyHour being followed by the #LowBudgetTrumpRemakeOf1984.😑 www-m.cnn.com/2019/03/29/pol…
Watching every RW news outlet, pundit & GOP mouthpiece that ever claimed to love this country embarrass the HELL out of themselves on a national scale is the saddest circus act ever performed before a live audience.

So #MBS & Saudis have the technology to hack our phones without a trace, they've targeted activists like us, they control #AMI, parent company of the #Enquirer, and chairman David Pecker brought MBS intermediary Kacy Grine to meet w/Trump/Kushner? Thread👇 thedailybeast.com/jeff-bezos-inv…

1/ My Personal Thank You to Donald J. Trump...

Human beings are tribal.

We define ourselves relative to our affiliations, our social networks, our tribes.

Our nationality. Our religion. Our ethnicity. Our school. Our political affiliation. Our profession. Our sports teams...
2/ The neighborhood we were born in. The city we were born in. All are tribes of one sort or another.

With our tribal behavior comes certain prejudices, certain judgements that we render against those of a different tribe.

I've had them my whole life. ..
3/ We all have them, to one degree or another, whether or not we admit it to ourselves.

It's in recognition of that fact that I have to personally thank Donald J. Trump for freeing me of those prejudices, those judgements...

The Critical Part of Mueller's Report That Barr Didn't Mention theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
On Sunday afternoon, Attorney General Bill Barr presented his own memo of Mueller’s conclusions that contained a few partial sentences from Mueller's final report, one of which directly addressed the question of collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia:
In a footnote, Barr explained that Mueller had defined “coordination” as an “agreement—tacit or express—between the Trump campaign and the Russian government on election interference.”
