The Orange Hate-Monkey has interfered in an internal justice department matter. He has directed his fixer/AG Billy Barr to reduce the sentence that his henchman Roger Stone is facing for violating the law at his direction. He is violating ethical rules and regulations in an effort to let his friend off lightly.
So just impeach Trump again. Just do it. Tomorrow do it again for the next stupid thing he does. Then again the next day. Then again the next day. Continue to repeat as necessary until his Stormtrumpers begin to understand the landslide that is waiting to crush them.
Everything that Trump does is a violation of some ethical rule or some guideline that isn’t strictly law, and every other thing he does is a violation of law that he pretends isn’t a violation. So impeach him a hundred times. A thousand times. Does it really matter how many times he is impeached, if every single thing he does should be something he is removed from office for?
Impeach him again. Just do it.
02/13/2020 (next day) – The hand-waving by the friends of the OHM’s new fixer/A.G. has begun. The host of this segment on Morning Edition spells out the timeline for the guy, and he still insists that Barr was not taking direction from the president.
Occam’s razor would suggest that the guest is lying for his buddy Billy Barr who got his direction from the President right before he got involved in the case. Was given direction by a president who is too stupid to not broadcast the illegal things he does every day.
02/14/2020 – We discover today that Billy Barr is also interfering in the prosecution of Mike Flynn.
Mr. Flynn’s case was first brought by the special counsel’s office, who agreed to a plea deal on a charge of lying to investigators in exchange for his cooperation, before the Washington office took over the case when the special counsel shut down after concluding its investigation into Russia’s election interference.
Mr. Flynn’s case has been bogged down in recent months by his lawyers’ unfounded claims of prosecutorial misconduct; a judge has already rejected those accusations. Mr. Flynn then asked to withdraw his guilty plea, which he first entered in December 2017. His case has become a cause célèbre for Mr. Trump’s supporters.
On Tuesday, Mr. Barr and Mr. Rosen overruled career prosecutors’ recommendation that a judge sentence Mr. Trump’s friend Roger Stone Jr. to seven to nine years in prison after a jury found him guilty of witness intimidation and several false statements charges, in accordance with standard sentencing guidelines, and insisted on a lower recommendation.New York Times
…but, you know, he’s not coordinating with the president in his efforts to exonerate or mitigate the punishment of his cronies.
