All four DoJ attorneys on the Stone case have resigned.

LOL away, Ward.
ROFL!
All four were Mueller lackeys who misled the DOJ.
How fucking stupid are you ?


Multiple news reports said DOJ was blindsided by the formal recommendation from operatives tapped by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Stone be sentenced to up to nine years in prison. A source told Fox News that the sentence recommendation was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate” to Stone’s crimes.

The DOJ was in the process of rescinding the rogue prosecutors’ recommendation.
Sources told The Federalist that Timothy Shea, who was recently appointed to take over as the top federal prosecutor in D.C. earlier this month, was bullied into agreeing to the sentence recommendation by Adam Jed and Aaron Zelinsky, who were originally tapped by Mueller to investigate whether Donald Trump treasonously colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton. A full investigative report released by Mueller last year revealed that the Mueller investigation found zero evidence for any of the claims of collusion between Trump and the Russians. According to a separate report on serial abuses committed by the Department of Justice (DOJ) during its investigation of Trump, the DOJ inspector general found that the government knew long before Mueller was even appointed that there was no evidence of any collusion.
Shea’s acquiescence to the demand by the disgruntled former Mueller operatives raised questions about whether Shea was operationally in control of the D.C. prosecutor’s office, or whether he had effectively outsourced major decisions in high-profile cases to Mueller’s former deputies.

No. A unitary presidency that listens to no other officials, does not have an independent DoJ, and takes vengeance against those who do not do what he wants, even when what he wants is illegal.

Stop lying.

Oooh, right wing rhetoric with no substantiation to it.

I am less stupid than you are, Ward, and less dishonest, too.

Of course, in any other administration JEDI would be a huge scandal. It barely rates a mention in the Trump administration. Red would LOL about using the power of office to steer a 10 billion dollar contract away from a vendor for political reasons. At least since it was Trump.

Hoping the IG can awaken the sleepers a little.   That vendor was the heavy favorite...and Trump's least favorite web services company.   Direct meddling in the bid process by a commander-in-chief?  For reasons of personal animosity towards Bezos?  Just another Tuesday.

BTW,  Josh,  I want to report a poster who is using up all the new Klobuchar portmanteau words before I can get to them.   It's greedy.

Looking at the recent Quinnipac poll, I have to again wonder if African-Americans are really a "block."  That concept may have no more coherence than Norwegian-Americans forming a block that supports the Norsk-descended Mayor Pete. 

Per Qpac poll, 22 percent of African Americans nationally favor Bloomberg, and 19 percent favor Sanders, with Biden holding on to 27 percent. (Warren lags with 8 percent, Buttigieg with merely 4 percent.) 

https://poll.qu.edu/national/release-detail?ReleaseID=3655

If you look at numbers, Bloomberg is a bit ahead on numerical lead of Trump, though that's all registered voters, so I don't know how well he does with Likely Voters as a subgroup.  But he's certainly showing that there is no "African-American candidate" in the sense that Joe was styling himself. 

Also, regarding Bloomy, it's interesting that no one is kvetching about agedness in his direction - which could be partly due to looking a bit younger than his chronological age (58 billion buys a lot of antioxidants and Swiss clinic visits), and partly that he hasn't been long months out pressing the flesh, swallowing corn dogs, and getting haggard at day's end.  Or it could be the party is getting acclimated to our new world where people whose age is the statistical lifespan of an American male are no longer a novelty act.  (my father lived to Bloomberg's present age, which wasn't too shabby for a guy who lived early years in the Dust Bowl, then breathed printing chemicals for decades, and smoked almost his entire life)

Told you guys months ago Biden was riding high because he was The Wingman, he was Uncle Joe.
After 2016 it was clear the majority of white people in the nation were good with making America white again. Well DAMN!

Uncle Joe was as comfortable and familiar as an old cardigan. Nice to wear once and a while but threadbare so if you wear it everyday it’ll probably come apart. Joe was safe. We know Joe... we like him anyway.

Bernie would rather be right than win.

Pete is an old guy’s idea of a young guy and he can’t deal straight up with the black folks at home.

Amy Klobuchar would be a good President but not at a time when being nice is not an asset. Only reaching across the aisle I want to see is if there’s a cutlass in hand.

In my opinion Warren would be the best candidate especially if she has Bloomberg slamming Trump all day every day. What’s he gonna do, call her Pocahontas?

No one I know in or out of the biz “likes” or “supports” Bloomberg but like Joe, we know him and he ain’t Trump! 

I’ll take a benevolent despot over a fascist dictator any day.

PoC and everyone who isn’t a straight white male can feel the menace in the air.

My parents told me of Nazis marching through Lindenhurst, NY when they were teenagers and I’ve now TWICE run across fucking Nazis marching through DC.

Bloomberg can go toe to toe with Trump and the GOP donor base, so fuck yeah! Smack that motherfucker around all day and night!
