Trump admin has weaponized DOJ against political opponents

That trump et. al. are still beating the dead horse of Uranium One when it has been a matter of public record for so long is unhinged and this is explicit evidence of a level of vindictiveness rarely seen in politics.

That the Justice Dept "finds" a letter that they had earlier swore in court didn't exist exposed insight into a Justice Dept that has become the political weapon of the trump administration.

“It strains credulity to believe that the Justice Department didn’t know about this letter when they swore under penalty of perjury that it didn’t exist–you don’t exactly forget about a formal directive to investigate Hillary Clinton signed by Jeff Sessions,” he added.

10. Busy

plotting out the pardons strategy.

Dusting off the old Iran-Contra playbook.

Setting things up to let donnie and his dirty associates skate.


These people make me sick.

3. Betsy Woodruff

is quite a fine journalist. I think she's the daughter of Judy Woodruff from PBS Newshour. In fact, the daughters of mst of the Newshour ladies have gone on to follow their mothers' careers. Good to see. Casey Hunt could do better but that's what it is.

ETA: correction Judy Woodruff not Julie.

6. Chris Wallace should have been better; Mike was a real pro; Chris...not so much

Miss the 60 minutes crew of a decade, two or three ago. Good journalism. Have you noticed how lame and conservative NPR has gotten? Can barely stand to tune in. I know they have been targeted for decades, but they used to be really good.

7. Since the Kochtopus

has been footing a lot of their funding, they have suffered a serious decline in quality. Jim Leher must be spinning in his grave.

11. They are just ramping up

They are already being directed to investigate and dig dirt on any potential Democratic candidate this will be Mcarthyism on steroids and the chorus on the right will be, Obama did it to Trump so this is fair game, because that is how insane the right has become under their Fuherer.

13. Except, Obama didn't do dick-all to Trump, except tell some jokes about him at a public event.

Worthless thin skinned motherfucker...and he WOULD fuck his own mother, if only to feel equal to his prick of a father, you mark my words.
