After all this plays out, I devoutly hope that Barr gets John Mitchell's old cell

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_N._Mitchell

John Newton Mitchell (September 15, 1913 November 9, 1988) was the 67th Attorney General of the United States (19691972) under President Richard Nixon. Prior to that, he had been a municipal bond lawyer, chairman of Nixon's 1968 presidential campaign, and one of Nixon's closest personal friends.

After his tenure as U.S. Attorney General, he served as chairman of Nixon's 1972 presidential campaign. Due to multiple crimes he committed in the Watergate affair, Mitchell was sentenced to prison in 1977 and served 19 months...

On February 21, 1975, Mitchell, who was represented by the criminal defense attorney William G. Hundley, was found guilty of conspiracy, obstruction of justice, and perjury and sentenced to two and a half to eight years in prison for his role in the Watergate break-in and cover-up, which he dubbed the "White House horrors." As a result of the conviction, Mitchell was disbarred from the practice of law in New York. The sentence was later reduced to one to four years by United States district court Judge John J. Sirica. Mitchell served only 19 months of his sentence at Federal Prison Camp, Montgomery (in Maxwell Air Force Base) in Montgomery, Alabama, a minimum-security prison, before being released on parole for medical reasons.

Tape recordings made by President Nixon and the testimony of others involved confirmed that Mitchell had participated in meetings to plan the break-in of the Democratic Party's national headquarters in the Watergate Hotel. In addition, he had met, on at least three occasions, with the president in an effort to cover up White House involvement after the burglars were discovered and arrested

1. Well, for there to be any justice at all several things must happen and they must

happen without interference from russia or the traitors in the WH

1. an honest election
2. people voting with their brains, not their hearts
3. rump leaving the WH peacefully


I dont think any of these 3 will happen...

When I say people voting with their brains, I dont mean cons, they dont have brains at least not that we can measure or see.
