NY DA Vance Impanels a Special "Trump" Grand Jury; DOJ Appeals Judge Jackson's Memo Release Order



Watch Glenn's smile at the start...

It's ... coming like a ton of bricks to the oRange mob$teR.




On edit: NY Special Grand Juries can return indictments on a simple majority (50% + 1) basis (not 100%).

2. It's a reasonable explanation, to a point. However.....

Reason 1: Makes no sense, because Bill Barr already knows what's in the memo !

Reason 2: I can see the merit in that, but the optics of Garland defending potential criminality within the DOJ looks appalling, and smacks of defending the institution no matter what. It taints his leadership only a short few weeks into it.

Reason 3: Obviously not the case, but if Barr walks away, then it will show utter naivety by Garland.

5. It is most likely but the point I'm making is that this is not like the DOJ of times past. This DOJ

has been badly tarnished by the last four years, and defending the internal DOJ internal deliberative process while knowingly shielding the disgrace that is the liar Barr, will do nothing to give any confidence back in the DOJ. This should be a house cleaning moment. Now, perhaps they believe that they will be defeated in their appeal, and this allows them to not set a precedent but get the right result in the end, but the optics are terrible. Even worse if an Appeal Judge lets them off the hook.
