This week, amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, the Trump team carried out yet another affront against the rule of law via dropping the charges against disgraced former Trump adviser Michael Flynn, who had admitted to lying to federal investigators about his communications with the then-Russian Ambassador to the United States. Attorney General Bill Barr, who is a Trump appointee (of course), insisted that the case against Flynn had been out of place from the start. Amidst fierce criticism of that sharp politicization of the Justice Department, Trump himself glibly tweeted this Friday morning that “MUCH more” in line with Barr’s favor to Flynn might be coming soon.

Throughout the Russia scandal and subsequent lengthy investigations, Trump has painted himself as some kind of innocent victim who’s been targeted by nefarious players in the “deep state” who’ve tried to topple his presidency on the basis of made-up accusations of collusion with the Russians. That is a ludicrous assessment of the situation. Trump literally stood on camera and proclaimed at one point that Russia should hack into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Yet, in willful ignorance, Trump tweeted this Friday morning:

‘Yesterday was a BIG day for Justice in the USA. Congratulations to General Flynn, and many others. I do believe there is MUCH more to come! Dirty Cops and Crooked Politicians do not go well together!’

The president is, quite simply, completely self-deluded. Flynn admitted to lying to authorities. Yet, Barr seems to have decided to drop the case against him out of some kind of sense of personal offense at its existence.

Barr has responded to criticism with increasingly unhinged assertions about the supposedly broadly sweeping power of authorities like himself. For example, during a CBS interview, he suggested that his place in history for dropping the charges against Flynn didn’t really matter because “might makes right” and the victors get to write the history.
