Judge orders release of DOJ memo justifying not prosecuting Trump

Source: Politico

A federal judge has ordered the release of a key Justice Department memo supporting former Attorney William Barr’s conclusion that former President Donald Trump should not be prosecuted for obstruction of justice over episodes investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller.

U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued that ruling in a withering opinion that accused Barr of being “disingenuous” when describing Mueller’s findings and found that the Justice Department was not candid with the court about the purpose and role of the 2019 memo prepared by Justice’s Office of Legal Counsel.
“Not only was the Attorney General being disingenuous then, but DOJ has been disingenuous to this Court with respect to the existence of a decision-making process that should be shielded by the deliberative process privilege," she wrote. "The agency’s redactions and incomplete explanations obfuscate the true purpose of the memorandum, and the excised portions belie the notion that it fell to the Attorney General to make a prosecution decision or that any such decision was on the table at any time.”

Glad to see this ruling. This could be the start of a real fair and open investigation by Garland's DOJ. As opposed to Barr's obstruction and stone-walling.

If Trump is not-guilty then why does he continue to act like a guilty man?

True freedom gives a middle finger to authoritarian rule. Democrats, we are the party of liberty.

Birth control is freedom. It's helped countless generations of women that weren't ready to be a parent move forward UNTIL they are ready to be a parent. In other words, getting yourself ready for parenthood. Financially, all of that.

Birth control can help make that a simple remedy.

In the event that you didn't use BC, choice is a fail-safe measure.

Its a choice best left to the mothers. It is their bodies. Few things are more sacred than making a medical choice regarding your own body.

Personal choice is a sacrament. Would you let someone else make a choice for you, regarding your own health?

Republicans are a total violation of women's reproductive choices.

Rethugs inject their big govt fascist authoritarian views into the delicate topic of women's reproductive rights.

Fellow Dems, we have a common ground to call out Rethug right-wing bullshit.

They are the purveyors of big govt bullshit.

Govt inside our bedrooms is among the biggest big-govt bullshit that exists in today's political landscape.

Controlling women today is key to right-wing authoritarian bullshit.

Conservatism is anti-woman bullshit.

Fuck decorum, I'm done with speaking eloquently.

Should Dems run ads against their GOP opponents referring to them as Pro-Insurrectionist?

Regarding 2022's midterm election.

Once the GOP nominates their candidate in almost any race, if they refuse to condemn the Jan 6th attack on our democracy and our country then run ads referring to any who refuse to condemn or any that are already on record as either supporting it or refusing to condemn.

In other words, most of the GOP who voted to acquit Trump during his impeachment trial.

In my humble opinion, Democratic Party candidates could politically cripple their GOP opponents by relentlessly running ads referring to their GOP opponent as Pro-Insurrection. That the GOP tried to protect the orange seditionist.

The GOP tried to sweep an attack on our country and our democracy under the rug.

I believe these ads could be very effective.

We need to win every purple district to grow our majorities. Of course, I'd like to see us win every district but we may even pick up a few red districts with an effective campaign strategy.

This would be the Democratic Party taking their gloves off and swinging hard.

Voters like candidates that fight hard during campaign season.

I also think this will ward off our party underperforming in 2022.
