Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy issued a statement Tuesday in support of Attorney General William Barr.
And meanwhile… More than 1,000 former Justice Department officials have called on Barr to resign for his role in politically sensitive investigations, after he intervened in the case of Roger Stone.
But Wait! There’s more!
The WaPo reports that the head of the Federal Judges Association has taken the “extraordinary step” of calling an emergency meeting to confront Trump’s recent actions and those of strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr. In a statement, Cynthia M. Rufe, the U.S. District Judge who heads the association of roughly 1,100 life-term federal judges said that the matter was urgent and “could not wait.” By the way, this is the group’s first meeting to address the conduct of a president or A.G. since its founding in 1982.
So lemme do the math… 1,100 judges + 1,000+ DOJ officials = A SHIT TON OF LAWYERS!
Talk about a jury of your peers, but not surprisingly, our failed political press is somehow making the 3 Stooges at the top of the post the story, and not 2K-plus legal beagles. Go figure. But they are equivalent to the press. You know: Both Sides.
