This was one of the goofier parts of #WilliamBarr's testimony. "Well, duh, we have cabinet meeting and there's an election coming."

So Trump is focusing on the election as an integral part of his cabinet meetings. Vs., I dunno, conducting govt business? Yeesh. 1/
Other Barr hits:

The lack of #PPE for an impending pandemic was all *Obama's* fault. That Trump was in office 3 fricking years before the pandemic hit apparently means nothing. 2/
Also, "no tear gas" was used at Lafayette Square. Even though there are multiple (non-protester) eye-witnesses to CS gas canisters being found afterward, including from the NG officer who testified this very week. 3/

.@LesterHoltNBC @DavidMuir @NorahODonnell please do not parrot the words 'law and order' when reporting on @realDonaldTrump's use of federal force to police US streets. This is NOT about law and order but misuse of federal power against US citizens. 1/ justsecurity.org/71512/portland…
.@wolfblitzer @jaketapper @andersoncooper @ErinBurnett do not let @realDonaldTrump and #WilliamBarr frame this story for their own political purposes. This isn't about crime or attacks on federal property. 2/ justsecurity.org/71535/bill-bar…
.@deanbaquet @peterbakernyt @maggieNYT I am hoping you ask the hard questions about what it means to have federal personnel taking on local police function in a democracy against the wishes of local leaders. Hint: there are not "both sides" to this. 3/ lawfareblog.com/what-heck-are-…

This is unbelievable. The handling has been woeful. Just read this statement from the US Attorney General. #Berman #WilliamBarr
Am sure the reason #WilliamBarr wanted to force #GeoffreyBerman to resign last night was to avoid what you have now: @realDonaldTrump firing the man who was -err- investigating Trump associates. Not ideal optics
This is less Saturday Night Massacre than surreal Saturday. @realDonaldTrump has just left the White House saying he has had no part in the firing of #GeoffreyBerman. But #WilliamBarr in letter he released earlier said the president HAD fired him. Which is it? Both can't be true

The bad news is that #WilliamBarr stained DoJ investigation into Erik Prince for ITAR/FCPA/Espionage will be buried. Trump #quidproquo is now officially normalized. I guess Donald needs that DeVos money to get relected. The good news is that they didn't get all the evidence.
Prince has been down this road before, in the same countries with the same rulers. One of the reasons he had to sell his businesses and move to Abu Dhabi. Since then he has learned not to be so clumsy in writing his mercenary proposals for dictators. nytimes.com/2010/08/21/wor…
Prince has also moved on from trying to flog his two illegal Thrushes and is flogging old dictator junk to dictators. If we do this Afghanistan deal, Erik even might get a crack at his $3.5B mercs for minerals gig. surprise...Erik's Thrush aircraft buzzfeednews.com/article/aramro…

1. Last week I published this RAE: Documentary Evidence of Covert Electronic-Weapon and Neurotechnology Use By US Government on Americans Series (2) The Limited Effects Technology (LET) Program Report | JPSG, OOTW/LE Programs, 1996

everydayconcerned.net/2020/01/30/doc…
2. Few realize how important the doc. featured in this article is. The @NYTimes does because they carefully failed to report it. @washingtonpost ditto. @ACLU ditto. @EFF @WSJ @latimes The fashion after all is to ignore anything of import w. ref to #NLWs, #Neuroweapons, et al.
3. None of the big MSM pubs will bother to pursue or write abt issues related to anti-personnel non-lethal wpns/neuroweapons being used on ppl. of the world becos apparently they work hand in glove w. Intel to keep these wpns SECRET. #WeWontReport

The #MuellerReport left out that Joseph #Mifsud, an academic it portrayed as suspiciously connected to #Russia, actually has numerous connections to former Western officials and experts on counterterrorism and intelligence. (Thread 👇) theepochtimes.com/mueller-overlo…
The web of #Mifsud’s connections, pieced together by The #EpochTimes with the help of political analyst and counterterrorism researcher @CJBdingo25, shines new light on Mifsud’s loyalties and pursuits as well as key events behind the counterintelligence operation #Spygate.
It was Mifsud who allegedly told a Trump campaign aide that Russians had “dirt” on #HillaryClinton, in the form of “thousands of emails.”

This information was used by #FBI to open a counterintelligence investigation that involved extensive #Spying on Trump campaign staff.

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.” theepochtimes.com/tracing-the-or…
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. judiciary.house.gov/news/press-rel…

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. theepochtimes.com/as-rosenstein-…
#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.

On Thursday, #AttorneyGeneral #WilliamBarr held a conference to go over the findings of the #MuellerReport. theepochtimes.com/barr-explains-…
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.

THREAD: BERNIE SANDERS CAN BEAT TRUMP

@BernieSanders is a frontrunner for the Democratic nomination. He has millions of dedicated supporters and is raising tens of millions of dollars.

Few people in politics criticized him more harshly than I did in 2016. But I am a realist...
THREAD: ON BERNIE

With right-wing extremists running our govt. and with Trump sycophants like #MitchMcConnell, #LindseyGraham, #MikePence, #WilliamBarr shredding our norms and values, #BernieSanders is NOT the problem. In fact, he is out there spreading a progressive message.
THREAD: ON BERNIE

We need as many people committed to a strong progressive message as possible. Especially when they inspire millions of young voters. It is VERY tough to set aside the frustration of 2016. But I implore Bernie and Hillary supporters to try to come together.

1/ On Tuesday, 9 April 2019, Attorney General William Barr testified before the US House Appropriations subcommittee. The hearing was intended to address the Justice Department budget.
2/ Democrats, however, took the opportunity to ask questions regarding other topics - including special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

What seems most obvious to me about the reception of the #MuellerReport is that media, and citizens, on the left and the right have not yet learned that taking extreme positions on something that, as yet, we know very little about. THREAD
For example, go ahead and crap on #WilliamBarr if you like, but we do not know that he has not characterized the report correctly BECAUSE WE HAVE NOT YET SEEN IT.
My friends on the left take the absence of a condemnation of Trump in the letter as evidence of more corruption. And surely, even though we have been repeatedly warned that removing the President has perils, somehow waiting to defeat him in an election seems intolerable.

Wrong. No OBSTRUCTION.
Mueller wasn't sure on the specifics of the law regarding Obstruction of Justice so he left aall the evidence on both sides open for ATTORNY GENERAL BARR to decide.
Read Barr's finding on the next page.

Leaving obstruction open for Barr to decide. AG.William Barr and Rod Rosenstein went over the finding together (which is why Barr made Rod stay late Fri.)

In the Weimar Republic, Hitler gained control by corrupting the judiciary. In Iran 🇮🇷 the corrupt leaders maintain control through a corrupt judiciary. Has @TheJusticeDept & Judiciary been hopelessly compromised by Trump, #WilliamBarr and @senatemajldr? #SaturdayNightMassacre
Is it too soon to say #WilliamBarr is the new Robert Bork? Agree with @MalcolmNance; @realDonaldTrump is worse than #BenedictArnold. And the @GOP co-signs... no revels in this treasonous attack on American democracy. For what? Money? Power? Hate? #SaturdayNightMassacre
In order to save American Democracy we must take the Senate in 2020. Period. If @senatemajldr maintains control, there may never be another election #Hitler #Mussolini End.

😱A NIGHTMARE SCENARIO: The Mueller Investigation is a cover up scam, to sacrifice a few scapegoats to pacify the plebes, defuse a social explosion, to whitewash Trump and the GOP... using as a pretext for secrecy the DOJ rules, executive privilege, and top secret classification.
I KNOW PERFECTLY WELL THIS IS A CONSPIRACY THEORY, and I do not believe it... YET. But that is exactly what people will deduce if justice is denied, Trump & associates get immunity and impunity, or we get anything less than 100% fully & detailed transparency we can believe.
Without full disclosure, the longer it takes, the more obstacles in its way, the less credible it becomes. Anyone who can predict what a cover up of this magnitude will do to America, let me know! Trump is clearly guilty & absent being proven innocent beyond a shadow of a doubt.
