Foreign bad actors are exploiting perceived inaction at the Department of Justice as a wedge issue to splinter the Democratic Party, destroy public trust in institutions, and depress voter turnout. Look for any op designed to weaken your faith in democracy.
Foreign bad actors are also spreading vaccine and mask disinformation - which increases cases, hospitalization & death - and then using a manufactured dissatisfaction with the government’s ability to control the pandemic as a wedge issue to suppress the vote & divide democrats.
They are also doing this with the FBI and the 1/6 committee, the Manhattan and Fulton County DA’s, and any other entity criminally investigating or civilly suing trump and the GOP. And they are also exploiting rifts in the Democratic Party over voting rights.
The sneaky thing is that people have real and reasonable concerns. The trick is to have constructive pressure campaigns about those concerns, but not to let them divide us or keep us at home in November. Their goal is for us to blame any loss on democratic institutions.
Their goal is, was, and always will be to sow chaos and rage to ultimately dismantle democracy.

Let me tell you about Mike fucking Sherwin. Remember the US Attorney in DC, Jessie Liu, who Barr tried to remove twice for probably not being willing to go along with their bullshit like indicting Andy McCabe? He tried to move her out to main justice and she declined. 1/
Then trump promised her a job at Treasury, and as she was walking to her new office, he rescinded the offer and she was effectively fired? Trump and Barr installed Tim Shea who let Flynn and Stone off the hook and a bunch of people resigned in protest. 2/
By the vacancy rules, Tim Shea only had 120 days and would need the DC District Court's consent to stay longer which wasn't gonna happen, so Barr circumvented career prosecutors and installed Mike Sherwin. 3/

BREAKING: The @January6thCmte has sent a letter to McCarthy seeking voluntary information on trump's state of mind, along with a range of other key questions. The letter can be found here: 1/…
Of note is the key phrase we've seen repeatedly: "For example, even after the riotous crowd ultimately dispersed late in the day on January 6th, then-President
Trump and his legal team continued to seek to delay or otherwise impede the electoral count." 2/
"Additionally, the Committee would like to question you regarding your communications with President Trump, White House staff, and others in the WEEK AFTER the January 6th attack, particularly regarding President Trump’s state of mind at that time." 3/

THREAD on VANKY and JUNIOR's MOTION TO QUASH: Just finished recording @aisle45pod for this Wednesday where Andrew and I break down the trump's motion to quash Tish James' subpoenas, and here's an interesting idea: 1/
The trumps contend that her subpoena in the civil case is an end run around their right to a grand jury indictment because civil cases don't have grand juries, and if they plead the 5th, that allows for an "adverse inference instruction." 2/
That means pleading the fifth can be used against you in a civil case, but it can't be used against you in a criminal case. So that's the "harm" they're arguing; that pleading the fifth could be used against them. 3/

QUESTIONS THREAD for legal twitter: attn prosecutors @glennkirschner2 @eliehonig @JoyceWhiteVance @JillWineBanks @BarbMcQuade @renato_mariotti

What evidence will DoJ need to be able to indict trump for 18 U.S. Code § 1512(c)(2) obstructing an official proceeding? 1/
Liz Cheney keeps saying that Donald, through action or INACTION, did with corrupt intent impede or attempt to impede an official proceeding. "Official proceeding" is covered as 5 judges now have ruled that the certification of the electoral votes IS an official proceeding. 2/
And as far as "through action did impede or attempted to impede", you could argue that his actions - such as trying to pressure Pence to throw out electors, or inciting the riot by telling people he'd march to the capitol with them - did impede the proceeding. 3/

THREAD: How wrong is this article? Let me count the ways. 1/…
Let’s start with the headline. “DoJ doesn’t seem willing to penalize Trump rioters with serious crimes.” First, at least 275 defendants have been charged with obstructing an official proceeding. Same sentence as seditious conspiracy : max 20 years. 2/
And at least 40 have been charged with conspiracy - either: (a) conspiracy to obstruct a congressional proceeding, (b) conspiracy to obstruct law enforcement during a civil disorder, (c) conspiracy to injure an officer, or (d) some combination of the three. 3/

BREAKING: People under current DoJ criminal investigation for their role in the trump election lawsuits hosted gatherings to plot to overturn 2020 with multiple people including those with ties to John Eastman and the Arizona fraudit. 1/…

Jim ape rose also attended. He met with John Eastman - author of the six-point coup memo - on 1/5 according to @SethAbramson 3/
