That loud sound you just heard was the entire DOJ leadership going poof. A thread.
Barr The Corrupt told the Senate he would recuse himself from matters related to SecLabor Alex Acosta because it implicated his former law firm, Kirkland Ellis. There was conflicting reporting on whether he recused from the Epstein matter today, so here is where I think we are:
Barr said he would recuse from Acosta matters, and it is reported that he did. Is there wiggle room on Epstein? I don't think so. KE repped Epstein and intervened with Acosta, so KE's direct conflict is Epstein. That conflict is imputed to KE lawyers like Barr.
So Barr will be required to recuse from all Epstein matters, not just Acosta. (reporting; bloomberg.com/news/articles/…). What then, you say? That's where it gets interesting.
