Overwhelming Voices: “Actions… require Mr. Barr to resign” As 1100 Former DOJ Employees Decry Corruption

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Monday, February 17, 2020

Inept. Incompetent. Careless. Reckless. Unethical. Immoral. Contemptuous. Brazen. Illegal. Nefarious. Corrupted. Wicked. Criminal. Deceitful. Perfidious. Duplicitous. Recreant. Treacherous.

Those adjectives, and more, characterize not only the POTUS, but his entire administration.

“Political interference in the conduct of a criminal prosecution is
anathema to the Department’s core mission
and to its

sacred obligation
to

ensure
equal justice under the law.”

Recently, in contravention of ethical protocol, Attorney General William “Bill” Barr intervened following the Federal conviction of Roger Stone, a corrupt Republican political operative known for his “dirty tricks” – whom has a bizarre adoration of Richard Nixon to the extent he has a tattoo of Nixon’s face on his upper back – who was found guilty on all counts with which he was charged, which included:

1 count – Obstruction of an Official Proceeding;
5 counts – False statements, and;
1 count – Witness Tampering.

In an official memorandum written by the DOJ last week, Barr’s office wrote in part, that,

“The government respectfully submits that a sentence of incarceration far less than 87 to 108 months’ imprisonment would be reasonable under the circumstances.”

“While it remains the position of the United States that a sentence of incarceration is warranted here, the government respectfully submits that the range of 87 to 108 months presented as the applicable advisory Guidelines range would not be appropriate or serve the interests of justice in this case.”

Following Barr’s interference, all FOUR career Federal Prosecutors in the Roger Stone case resigned following the Attorney General’s recommendation that the Prosecuting Attorneys recommendation of 7-9 years as Stone’s punishment be significantly reduced.

The four whom resigned are:
Aaron S.J. Zelinsky, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney (lead prosecutor), and U.S. Attorney in Maryland;
Jonathan Kravis, Assistant U.S. Attorney, from the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia (whom also resigned from the DOJ entirely);
Adam C. Jed, Special Assistant U.S. Attorney;
Michael J. Marando, Assistant U.S. Attorney, also Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

To say that there’s little confidence left in the Department of Justice (DOJ), would be a diplomatically generous characterization.

“Mr. Barr’s actions
in doing the President’s personal bidding
unfortunately
speak louder than his words.”

Most recently, in response to his meddling, over 1100 former DOJ employees have publicly called upon Barr to resign.

Writing in part, they identified that “The Justice Manual — the DOJ’s rulebook for its lawyers — states that “the rule of law depends on the evenhanded administration of justice”; that the Department’s legal decisions “must be impartial and insulated from political influence”; and that the Department’s prosecutorial powers, in particular, must be “exercised free from partisan consideration.””

They further stated wholehearted support for the four now-resigned prosecutors in the Stone case, by writing that, Read the rest of this entry »
