In a scathing rebuke of Trump’s choices regarding Justice Department leadership, this lays out an excellent case against confirmation for Barr, who is nominated for Attorney General, and who already cleared Trump of Obstruction of Justice in a memo no one asked for.

After firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions and ignoring the chain of command by installing Matthew Whitaker, Trump finally came up with a new nominee for the position.

William Barr is quite a guy. Here’s some further reading on that:

Your DGB for this weekend is to share an impeachment piece with your circle.

We aren’t even getting into the original crimes Trump is trying to sweep under a very expensive rug. We’ll leave that to Mueller. There’s plenty of evidence publicly available to impeach on Obstruction of Justice alone.  Is talk of impeachment preliminary? Maybe. We’ve been daydreaming about it since the beginning of The Dark Time, but DGB staff consumes a lot of political media. Not everyone in your circle of family and friends has the time or the disregard for their own sanity necessary to keep up to date on political news. Some aren’t even exposed to any narratives beyond whatever Hillary probably just did. We need to plant the seed of removal from office because we will get there eventually and no one should be surprised when it happens. Depending upon your audience, they may be more receptive to either this New York Times piece or this Daily Caller article.
