AG Barr Moves EDNY Prosecutor Richard Donoghue to Main Justice, Installs Top DOJ Official at EDNY

Source: Daily Beast

Attorney General William Barr has pulled Richard Donoghue from his role as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York to take on a new role at Main Justice. After rumors of a reshuffling last week, the Justice Department confirmed the news in a statement on Friday, announcing that Donoghue will be leaving his role to serve as Principal Associate Deputy Attorney General, or top deputy to Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen. Donoghue, seen as close to Barr, was tasked with supervising all DOJ investigations involving Ukraine in February. His office also played a major role in the federal investigation into President Trump’s inaugural committee, and oversaw cases against drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman and Chinese telecommunications company Huawei, among others. Seth D. DuCharme, the current principal associate deputy attorney general, will take over as acting U.S. attorney in Brooklyn.

12. Exactly what has gone through my mind with every Friday news dump the past several weeks or so.

They are balls to the wall to get it done while the getting's good. Be assured they are laying down safety valves as well land mines as they go. They won't be done on January 21 regardless of the election's outcome.

2. Justice system is gone... Be careful, we are patriots which makes us enemies of traitor (trump) and

Barr.

They can and will commit crimes endlessly, you cant cross the street.

If there was no virus I would hope about 75 million of us would be in the streets.

7. Maybe a national strike will get their attention.

We practically just had one anyway.

Of course, that's easy for me to say because I'm retired. But damn, if suddenly on Monday no one went to work, it would scare the shit out of them.

when there was probably plenty of crooked financial deals to be swept under rug

19. I also was there in the streets protesting and what was really infuriating was when he got a pardon.

This bunch will get pardons like candy, and I am placing bets that he will pardon himself, kids, Barr, and anyone else that is associated with this pr*ck...............even the guy that was holed up in the embassy for three plus years...........and this country had and has 51 republican senators and 198 congressional a**holes that enabled this sh*t.................never again do I want to hear , even though they will run around and say that are the law and order bunch...................they are not, treason and enabling treason is still treason............

The timing was done by design.

The Congress has to do something creative with Barr.

No clue what that can be.

23. Barr cannot save Trump from New York state prosecution.

And even if Trump resigns o New Year's Eve and Pence pardons him for all federal crimes, Pence cannot prevent New York State prosecutions.

I expect a lot of lawyers arguing that the crimes Trump has committed in New York and New Jersey are all "federal".

25. I may be wrong but...

If any charges against Trump are NOT brought until after Biden (hopefully) takes office, then Trump can't be pardoned by anyone, including Pence. I mean, Trump can't be pardoned for a crime that hasn't been charged, yet. Am I wrong? I just think that any prosecutions should wait until AFTER the election and the installation of a Democrat to the Presidency.

29. Attorney GlennKirschner just said they can get Stone...

Glenn Kirschner (@glennkirschner2) Tweeted:
Trump corruptly commutes Roger Stone's prison sentence. Can it be undone by the next president or the courts? We do NOT need to just shrug our shoulders at the Trump crime or abuse du jour. Here's one possible road map to justice. https://t.co/8Qeq8oQI90 via @YouTube
?s=20

Go to the 8:237 min. mark. Biden (if elected) can do a maiden law and overturn the commutation saying it is corruption. The next AG can take it back to court and argue that this was clearly corruption since it was done as a favor and Stone even said so (quid pro quo).

30. Thanks for the link.

I believed I saw that Glenn Kirschner video but I will take another look at it. I understand that Stone's commutation could possibly be overturned. But does the same thing hold true about a PARDON? If Trump resigns and Pence takes over the remainder of Trump's term; then Trump gets charged with a crime and Pence could pardon him. That's why I think any charges against Trump should wait until he can no longer be pardoned. As I said, I am not a lawyer, but a commutation is different than a pardon in that a commutation doesn't wipe away the crime, just the jail time, so it seems that COULD be overturned. A pardon totally removes the crime from one's record, as though it never happened, so I don't see how it could be overturned. Otherwise, there would be plenty of pardons given by past Presidents that would have been overturned by later Presidents who didn't agree with the pardon.

31. It is confusing to me.

Even when I try to comprehend what the law is I end up getting more confused. I have learned more about the law and civics in the past 4 years than I have in my life time, and I didn't even intend or want to.

27. Let's hope there are loyal U.S. citizens making copies of incriminating documents

before Barr's goons have them destroyed. Biden is going to have to do a complete flush of Trump/Barr appointees in all departments -- not just the DOJ -- and do it quickly, in days, not weeks.
