Word that the attorney general is defending use of Trump’s new gestapo is not surprising, any more than his defense of pardoning Roger Stone. Barr is a criminal just like Trump. Once Trump is out of office, he needs to be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, along with Barr and his other enablers. Maybe that’s impossible. Probably it’s impossible. But it does not change the fact that they deserve it. My greatest fear is that this lawless, immoral administration will use its brown shirts to attempt a coup d'é·tat once it’s clear they have lost the election.
