Treasonous: Barr's letting the 13 Russian nationals & 3 Russian entities Mueller charged just WALK!

...not enough coverage of this Justice Dept. coup.

K. C. Boyd @KCBoyd3 4h
The Justice Department on Monday moved to drop its case against 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities who were indicted as part of the former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US election.




...traitors.

26. Thanks, Celerity. How do we get more attention to topics we think are important?

I'm not sure the DU "recommend" solution always works.

Of course, if the site moderators decide something needs more eyeballs, they can make it happen. Not sure what their criteria are, however.

30. I do not know, I've had multiple OP's on important things 'sink' despite multiple people doing the

'K&R for visibility' thing. Then, people come along later and say, ie 'Why was this never posted in DU?' lolol

I have no solution. I will just keep posting things that I think merit attention. I have zero control over what people choose to pay attention to. I can post (and did) a great Atlantic article about all the hysteria over 'OMG! the virus is mutating and will kill us all' articles and posts, it will have very little attention, but then that exact same zombie apocalypse type of article it was critiquing will get tossed out there and garner thousands of views and 50, 100, 125 recs.

I am on DU a lot, and I certainly cannot keep up with all the posts. Hell, I almost never even go into LBN, and still cannot remotely keep up. All I can do is try and keep posting and try and find the relevant articles and K&R them.

cheers

13. That ass has escaped the pen. Barr could NOT care less about states' bar associations.

Last edited Sun May 17, 2020, 02:14 PM - Edit history (1)

He could NOT care less about the American Bar Association.

He could NOT care less about 1,000 legal experts questioning his ability to serve.

He could NOT care less about world opinion.

He cares only about his hide, the hide of the creature in the middle of the swamp, the donors and parasites that want to drain the lifeblood from this country.

Opus Dei, anyone? A fine "Catholic" institution obviously not formed to promote Jesus's preachings.

Federalist Society? In name only. Otherwise a conduit for extreme RW/libertarian views and judges.

I'm sorry, I usually cringe and let this slide, but you repeated it four times.

Think about it. If he could care less, then it means the opposite of what you intend.

Other than that, great post! Barr is a very dangerous man.

care because by allowing him to retain his license they are giving the appearance that his actions have their stamp of approval.

23. They are going for the Iran-Contra model here.

By letting all of these criminals go they will be able to say to the American people: "Not one single person was convicted as a result of the Mueller investigation."

That is what they did after Iran-Contra. Criminals like Oliver North had their convictions set aside on technicalities. Then the GOP spent years lamenting that this major story was a fake scandal that yielded no convictions.

Barr was a big part of that strategy as well. He is the one that orchestrated the Christmas Eve pardons of Iran-Contra felons, like Casper Weinberger, by George HW Bush.

24. I think Putin is putting massive pressure

on Trump, and therefore Barr, to squeeze as much out of them as he can. Putin may be thinking Trump is not going to win the election and the GOP may lose the Senate, and his free lunch will be over with the Democrats in charge. Whatever he has on Trump, he is holding it over his head and demanding he do as much as he can, and soon.

25. HooKay, we're in full-out PUBLIC mobster/cartel territory now, hidden before

And BARR specializes in rustling up legalese to rationalize what he does, in this case saying that these Russkies are out of reach of the U.S. legal system and couldnít be made to be punished if convicted. Yip, thatís the ticket. BARR said long ago that he doesnít give a fig about his reputation or what History will say about him. Oddly, heís a Catholic apparently non-believing in retribution for sins or repentance.

41. Follow the reasoning.

The tweet doesn't bother with it because reasons don't matter in tweetland.

The Russian side was untouchable. If they were convicted, yippee. They wouldn't be able to come to the US. And some people get bragging rights. US subpoenas documents? Sorry, not in the country.0

The US side was touchable. The Russian side, as part of its defense, requested documents and information. The government could turn it over--revealing more information than it wanted--or it could say, "Sorry, you can't see the evidence against you, you have no right to confront your accusers." That makes most reasonable people uncomfortable. Or the US could say it didn't have the information--either perjury or admitting incompetence.

While the US would seek to limit the harm, the problem is that the US doesn't know what Russia knows, and that makes it difficult to say what would provide useful information to them.

This is the same case where to all appearances Mueller's team believed there'd be no actual trial. When the Russian lawyers came along, the US side did everything possible to get them disqualified so there'd be no defendants represented, just accused. When the lawyers were accepted by the court, the Mueller team immediately had to file for a delay because, in spite of having the Russians' lawyers show up and the time taken before they are deemed the defendants' lawyers, the US side still wasn't ready to prosecute.

This case is like a teddy bear cholla.

45. The Business Insider article cited in the tweet in the OP is dated March 16, 2020.

This is all a done deal.

It's no surprise that this piece of news went largely unnoticed - it happened just as the realization of the seriousness of the CV-19 pandemic was first breaking through into public consciousness.
