Trump's DOJ Spied On...Everyone - MSNBC



First we learned it was members of the media, then members of Congress. New revelations from the New York Times show how Trumpís Department of Justice also obtained metadata records on former White House Special Counsel, Don McGahn. Alicia Menendez and her panel discuss the latest on this fast-evolving story, with former Watergate Special Prosecutor, Jill Wine-Banks noting this might even be worse than what Nixon did during the scandal that ended his presidency. Aired on 06/13/2021.

2. I don't know if you have Mary Trump's book,

But I have it on audio - read by the author, and I'm listening to it in my car for the second time and it explains so much. Even starting when he was a child, he got away with everything. As a kid and a teen, he was pretty much incorrigible, that's why he was sent away to military school. But his father pinned all his hopes on him, his elder brother didn't have a ruthless enough temperament. So Donald got away with everything and when he started making his own decisions, he got into trouble (especially financial) so his father was obligated to bail him out. His deplorable behavior makes a lot more sense now after what I learned from Mary Trump's book.

3. Sessions, Barr, Rosenstein

didn't know? If true, some other spying operation was ongoing with grand jury subpoenas. Impossible AG and DAG wouldn't be informed; it was so outside normal.

Barr answered Sen. Harris: 'grapple with the word suggest'...there have been discussions...with matters out there"

I wonder if this implies an extra-legal operation outside the rule of law? Led by whom, for what, approved by whom? One of the Trump judges? Trump's had a remarkable fast track direct line to SCOTUS. Would a Justice sign off on such?
