‘Two thousand former federal prosecutors and DOJ alumni agree: In dismissing the Flynn case, Bill Barr “has once again assaulted the rule of law.” This former prosecutor agrees. Barr has turned the DOJ into a political weapon to be wielded by the President. He should resign.’
MSNBC’s Kyle Griffin reported in a tweeted that close to 2,000 employees who formerly worked at the Justice Department called for Attorney General (AG) William Barr “to step down.” The AG’s latest and among the greatest errors was his decision to “drop the case against Michael Flynn.” Griffin wrote:
”More than 1,900 former Justice Department employees are repeating a call for William Barr to step down as attorney general, asserting in an open letter he had “once again assaulted the rule of law” by moving to drop the case against Michael Flynn.’
The AG oversees a number of programs and initiatives, according to the Department of Justice’s site. Some of them are:
The Elder Justice Initiative was supposed to “support and coordinate enforcement” with the intent of combatting “elder abuse, neglect, and financial fraud and scams” against the older population.
What the AG did not include was that any individual can steal millions from specific people, but unless they were victims of Alzheimer’s or dementia, sorry out of luck.
The DOJ used weasel words to imply it provided Environmental Justice. Barr indicated that Hate Crimes were “one of the Department of Justice’s highest priorities.” The department even built a website.
Barr indicated that his department was combatting the Heroin and Opioid Awareness crisis. He devoted as much copy to describe the issue as he did to the action he planned to exert, Mostly, he planned to “find facts, resources, and news.”
For some reason, the AG thought he needed to define Human Trafficking, but the public pretty much has that definition down. What will he do about the problem? He did not say.
Then, Barr spent a great deal of time on the Lawful Access issue. His department wrote that his people could “obtain lawful access to otherwise private places (whether physical or digital.” The department under Barr had plans to tackle encryption, too, which was a little disturbing.
Barr explained what the Open Government Directive meant:
‘The Open Government Directive directs executive departments and agencies to take specific actions to implement the principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration. Open Data and Plan Language information is also available here.’
The Presidential Commission on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice issue would establish “the first commission on the law enforcement in half a century.” Barr knew what he planned to do to America before he ever walked up to Trump and Barr’s wife. Then, the AG placed his hand upon the Bible and swore — just not the truth.
