#Barr Used #DOJ Against Writer

#Trump’s Justice Department and Personal Lawyer Threatened Melania’s BFF Over Tell-All, Documents show

#StephanieWinstonWolkoff played a key role in planning the 2017 inauguration and is now assisting a federal probe

On July 15, the Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Civil Division at the #DOJ, Ethan P. Davis, joined the ultimately failed efforts—or their perceived version of such a book—from ever hitting shelves, citing the gratuitous services agreement to #Wolkoff’s attorney.

#Barr has Abused his powers to BLOCK other BOOKS deemed negative to the president, or his family.

PREPUBLICATION REVIEW THREAD:

1/Extraordinary letter re: insight into NSC prepub process re: #Bolton's book. Ms. Knight (& her experienced counsel) are to be applauded for taking action. Displays professionalism.

What ramifications does it have? Let's explore some key points.
2/#Bolton is being sued civilly by USGOVT for failing to comply w/contractual obligation that he abide by prepub review & receive final approval. USGOVT has pursued this path fewer than 10x in history.

cnn.com/2020/06/16/pol…
3/Court did not agree w/USGOVT that book could be blocked but said “Defendant Bolton has gambled with the national security of the United States. He has exposed his country to harm and himself to civil (and potentially criminal) liability."

Not good.

Is Ivanka Trump The New Face Of Privilege And Global Suffering, In Places Like The U.S. And India?

"This is not the first time Ivanka Trump has used “cheap stunts” to improve her image and brand. ..

"The appointment of perhaps the most hardline neoconservative hawk to the new position of Special Representative for Iran is the latest in a long line of escalatory measures the #TrumpAdministration has taken."

Alert: As I am no @TheView fan & today's show supports why. @Sunny grilled #JohnBolton for not testifying, but the real question is, "Why didn't Democrats subpoena him?" In the same vein, Obama said today how Bush had a respect for the rule of law...
I wrote the following years ago, when Pelosi slammed Republicans for its holding Eric Holder in contempt & Obama refused to investigate Bush-Cheney, how both actions stem from this 'duopoly' we have, both parties in collusion & agreeing to "look forward, never back"...
...so that they could rewrite history (with the help of corporate-mainstream media), manipulate voters' memories & understanding of events, not have to answer to the American people. The mess we find ourselves in today was all so predictable, as I did (predict it):

This ABC News interview has done a great job showcasing all of the @GOP pols and influencers - including Trump! - who praised #JohnBolton to the skies before calling him a traitor this week.

It really gets to the heart of how quickly Trump hollowed out the GOP's values.
#JOHNBOLTON: "My experience was he very rarely read much. The intelligence briefings took place maybe once or twice a week."

RADDATZ: "Is that unusual?"

BOLTON: "That is unusual. They should take place every single day."
#JohnBolton goes into detail, saying he went over things with Trump "again and again and again" with nothing sinking in.

Trump needed Bolton and others to repeatedly explain to him why Korea was partitioned. - this after Bolton once criticized Obama for "learning on the job."

That @washingtonpost obtained a copy of #JohnBolton book and everything you ever heard about @realDonaldTrump @POTUS #Trump ? Well, it's worse.

Hashtagging yourself is a power boomer move.
Can’t wait for #JohnBolton2
There’s enough anticipation and built up excitement from #JohnBolton that you would think #JohnBolton3 is an easy sell but that all still depends on how #JohnBolton2 performs.

Donald Trump's day so far:

- #PompeoResign will likely happen soon
- #JohnBolton begins trending as he hints at testifying
- It's all coming out now
- Trump is going to prison
- It's still only noon

@RBReich You're still worried about Russia's ability to propagandize a few computer-illiterate swing voters?
Did it bother you that #ObamaBiden supported the #MaidanCoup along with #NeoNazis who are still influencing the government in Ukraine?
thefreethoughtproject.com/neonazis-ukrai… #JoeBiden
@RBReich Snipers who killed scores of protestors and policemen on Kiev’s Maidan Square in February 2014, triggered a “democratic revolution” that overthrew the elected president, Yanukovych, and brought to power a virulent anti-Russian, pro-American regime.

@RBReich When a founder of a #NeoNazi party and repackaged speaker of the Ukrainian parliament visited Washington in 2017, he was widely feted by leading American politicians, including Senator John #McCain and Representative Paul Ryan.

#RobertOBrien, the new National Security Advisor, is virtually unknown within #foreignpolicy circles.

Who is he? @politico has a profile. Brief thread on what it shows <1/8>
politico.com/story/2019/09/…
New NSA #RobertOBrien has none of the experience typically needed for arguably the most important job in #foreignpolicy/#nationalsecurity.

Here's what he was doing during his only prior stint in govt. I was working in NatSec at the time: These aren't significant posts <2/8>
New NSA #RobertOBrien is described as a "hostage negotiator," but it is unclear whether he has ever negotiated the release of a hostage. For example, he had nothing to do with release of citizens held by #NorthKorea (unlike #JimmyCarter, @BillClinton, Bill Richardson etc) <3/8>
