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.

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.

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?

#ImpeachBarr for obstruction of justice. Check this out. Start at Mike Flynn receives a text. This is all in the final Mueller Report. No question of guilt, but more than that - obstruction of justice by Trump - BIG TIME. #ImpeachTrump #ImpeachTrumpAgain…

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?

Without Congressional approval, governments of Iraq, Kuwait, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Thailand, and EU got the green light to rent in Trump World Tower.

Barr is helping to dismantle the ACA.

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

1. Barr is just lying under oath and feels, like Trump, he can do it with impunity. The House has to #ImpeachBarr. If we don't we'll lose the House because @TheDemocrats who vote will conclude @SpeakerPelosi @LeaderHoyer are complicit. We need 10,000 @VABarAssn complaints too.
2. The impeachment should be forced to the floor of the Senate without any delay as the current Senate rules require. Make the Senate nothing but a trial court for #TrumpCrimeFamily leading to impeachment of @realDonaldTrump on the day he has his first debate.
3. It is political. That's why the @SenateGOP who took Russian money need to be exposed in the trials. We can't impeach the Senate but we can expose the @GOP treason and take most of the 21 @SenateGOP seats in 2020 cycle. We are in a Constitutional war ever since Merrick Garland.

Breaking: In a letter sent to AG Barr following Barr's initial summary of the OSC findings, Mueller told Barr that his remarks failed to capture the "context, nature and substance of the probe". Mueller then called Barr & told him to release his summaries.…
Barr is SUCH a liar. If he wanted to be Trump's personal lawyer and not represent the US, why didn't he take Trump's offer of that job a few months before his AG nomination?? Arrogance. Simple, grotesque arrogance. Can't wait to hear Mueller's testimony after this news!
2-MSNBC reporting that Mueller not only disagreed w Barr's representation of the report, but that Mueller may in fact, have been suppressed, Heidi Przybyla saying that when she asked Barr why Mueller wasn't at that presser Barr abruptly ended the pc. Starting to make sense now!

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

1. If the #MuellerReport truly exonerated Trump, do you think for one minute #Barr would keep it secret? It would be plastered all over the front page.
2. Barr says "a" primary consideration . . . was whether any Americans - including individuals associated with the Trump campaign - joined the Russian conspiracies to influence the election . . ."
But when Trump people sat in Trump Tower with the Russians they had reason
3. to know the Russians were committing a felony soliciting the commission of a felony campaign finance violation in violation of 52 USC 30121. The failure of Trump campaign attendees to report that was a clear federal crime.
See Misprision of Felony 18 USC Sec 4.
