1. I don't know who's more insufferable: Barr or Giuliani

They coarsen and sully the profession of Law.

2. Not exactly

In keeping with longstanding Department of Justice policy, neither Mr. Gore nor anyone else in the Department will be forced to testify in their capacity as a DOJ official on DOJ matters without DOJ counsel, said Kerri Kupec, a department spokesperson.

4. I believe we've heard that "longstanding" DOJ policy line from Barr's department before...

 

seems the "longstanding" only meant since Barr has been in office.

5. I've wondered about that

Will there be an actual shootout if Trump or anyone resists?

6. The House sargent of arms can go and arrest. Pelosi hasn't started playing hardball yet.

8. What about a citizen's arrest?

It's one thing to say the House sargent of arms can arrest someone, but what if that someone resists? Ignoring a subpoena is the same thing as ignoring an arrest warrant.

9. Can't the House cut DOJ funding?

Can't we do that, investigate and impeach all at the same time?

11. Wouldn't That ALSO Be Obstruction Of Justice?

I know that as an attorney, I'm not allowed to advise my clients to disobey a court order. So why can the nation's top attorney advise HIS clients to disobey what amounts to a court order?

12. so let them have "counsel" - there seems to be a loophole in the matter?
