With bill barr leaving we can never forget barr’s constitutional crime spree and rampage against the rule of law.

This thread provides some lowlights.
Barr lied about the contents of the Mueller Report’s findings to the public right out of the gate and repeatedly lied about them under oath.
Barr intervened to let trump's convicted friend slimeball roger stone off scot-free after stone coordinated with putin vessels to leak dirt during the 2016 election
Barr was a point person ordering police to tear gas protestors so trump could take a photo-op
Barr abused taxpayer resources to turn DOJ into trump’s personal law firm to defend trump in a rape lawsuit
Barr fired a top federal prosecutor who was probing a shady foreign bank in the dead of night and then lied about it.
Barr worked to dismiss the conviction of trump’s felon friend mike flynn who was on putin’s payroll and was labeled a traitor by a federal judge
Barr repeatedly attacked democracy with scurrilous lies about nonexistent voter fraud
Barr obstructed legislative oversight and was only the second AG ever held in contempt of Congress.
Barr installed cronies in top positions to undermine impartial justice and help protect trump’s crooked pals
So while bill barr may be leaving as the nation’s top law enforcement official, his fanatical assaults on the rule of law are chilling.

Barr should be stripped of his law licenses for life so he can never practice law again.

This week I called for the prosecution of donald trump and his government enablers.

Some have asked me to name his specific crimes and bad acts. So I wanted to do a thread highlighting a few of them to show the scope of his disgraces.

What follows is the tip of the iceberg.
Exhibit A: Tax evasion. There is clear evidence of tax evasion by trump, his siblings, and his children, courtesy of exhaustive investigative reporting.
Exhibit B: Obstruction of justice. Trump openly confessed firing the head of the FBI to stop a criminal probe of his aide Mike Flynn who sold out America.

No surprise then that Americans rank the post office maybe the most popular arm of government. A 2018 Pew poll found 88% of Americans have a positive view of @USPS.

Try to find something else in our government 88% of Americans support.
The post office birthed a 2nd American revolution. USPS precipitated road building & allowed people to fan out across the land. Postal contracts sustained transcontinental 🚂. It was the post that got the govt to invest in aviation & birth commercial ✈️ .

After today’s outrageous hearing in the Judiciary Committee, I just arrived on the House floor to set the record straight on Russia and the Steele dossier. I’m going to read the dossier into the Congressional Record.
As we saw in today’s hearing, @HouseGOP continues to heap falsehood after falsehood to cloud reality. Trump & those closest to him have repeatedly lied about their multiple contacts w/Russian officials & Putin associates. Even now they have yet to offer a consistent explanation.
And as we’re seeing this week at NATO, Trump continues to snub our allies & parrot Putin’s version of world events. He disregards the input of our civil servants, intelligence operatives, & military officials. This betrayal has become an inexplicable routine we cannot shrug off.

On #WorldRefugeeDay, I am reminded of the refugees I have met after being resettled in New Jersey. They all sought a better, safer life for their families.
While their stories are uplifting, nearly 70m people are displaced from their homes because of war, violence, & persecution. The global response has been mixed, but some nations and NGOs, like @theIRC, have stepped up to support the neediest among us #WorldRefugeeDay
But thanks to Trump, the US has slashed our refugee acceptance rate in half to only 45,000. Credible estimates suggest we will not even meet that goal. That is why I led 126 of my colleagues to demand answers on refugee resettlement. pascrell.house.gov/sites/pascrell…

In #Teaneck, the student band played at the #MemorialDay Observance.
I spoke in #ElmwoodPark at their #MemorialDay ceremony.
#Clifton has several lovely memorial displays, including this one at Fire Station No. 5 on Brighton Road. #MemorialDay
