When the Russian government can rightfully criticize the human rights abuses of the U.S., that’s embarrassing.
U.S. Attorney General William Barr has stated that President Trump’s tweets about cases involving the Justice Department “make it impossible” for him to do his job. What he actually means is that Trump’s bragging and crowing make it very hard to hide what Barr is up to (putting the fix in for cases involving Trump cronies) behind the scenes.
The situation is so flagrantly outside the norms that over 2000 former Department of Justice officials have signed an open letter demanding that Barr resign.
First in an ongoing series. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is one of Trump’s primary enablers, and plenty awful when left to his own devices – both vindictive and a liar, just like his boss. The headline links to an article, ’nuff said.
