1. YES.

I didn't see anything in the media about that fiasco. The ghost of Ed Meese has risen again and come full circle.

9. That Medal of Freedom for Ed Meese was worse than dangling a pardon

-it was vulgar. And there he was shouting out Bill Barr. These ethically challenged monsters do not give a flying fuck.

16. Because I can, because it seems to be assumed that Rachel watching is required or expected here.

Pass.

17. Whatever.

I was talking to the people who may have seen it. I will “pass” on being goaded into an argument on
the merits of the Rachel Maddow show.

18. More talking heads, but it was important enough for you to respond wasn't it?

I prefer to think for myself and try to avoid confirmation bias.

The post was about Ed Meese getting a medal of honor from Trump. Anything to say about that?

13. Good Lord!

Then, the Watergate Popcorn Award should have gone to Martha Mitchell, but I can't let this go:


From Lawrence E Walsh's, Independent Counsel, Iran/Contra
Executive Summary

[snip]

This report concludes with Independent Counsel's observations and conclusions. He observes that the governmental problems presented by Iran/contra are not those of rogue operations, but rather those of Executive Branch efforts to evade congressional oversight. As this report documents, the competing roles of the attorney general -- adviser to the President and top law-enforcement officer -- come into irreconcilable conflict in the case of high-level Executive Branch wrongdoing. Independent Counsel concludes that congressional oversight alone cannot correct the deficiencies that result when an attorney general abandons the law-enforcement responsibilities of that office and undertakes, instead, to protect the President.

Independent Counsel asks the Congress to review the difficult and delicate problem posed to the investigations and prosecutions by congressional grants of immunity to principals. While recognizing the important responsibility of Congress for investigating such matters thoroughly, Congress must realize that grants of use immunity to principals in such highly exposed matters as the Iran/contra affair will virtually rule out successful prosecution.

Independent Counsel also addresses the problem of implementing the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA) in cases steeped in highly classified information, such as many of the Iran/contra prosecutions. Under the Act, the attorney general has unrestricted discretion to decide whether to declassify information necessary for trial, even in cases in which Independent Counsel has been appointed because of the attorney general's conflict of interest. This discretion is inconsistent with the perceived need for independent counsel, particularly in cases in which officers of the intelligence agencies that classify information are under investigation. This discretion gives the attorney general the power to block almost any potentially embarrassing prosecution that requires the declassification of information. Independent Counsel suggests that the attorney general implement standards that would permit independent review of a decision to block a prosecution of an officer within the Executive Branch and legitimate congressional oversight.

15. Is there a pattern?

Nixon AG: John Mitchell
Reagan AG Ed Meese
Bush 43 AG: Bill Barr (Advocated for pardons)
Bush 43 AG: Roberto Gonzales
Trump AG: Bill Barr

Every Republican President since 1968 has appointed a corrupt Attorney General. FIVE OUT OF FIVE!
