Thread: Ongoing corruption of the DOJ

  1. #1

    Default Ongoing corruption of the DOJ

    Thought it might be appropriate to start a thread in anticipation of the upcoming hearings about Barr's misconduct and his apparently successful efforts to corrupt the DOJ:

    https://www.npr.org/2020/06/23/88237...=1593013558233

    Prepared statements:

    Zelinsky - https://judiciary.house.gov/uploaded...paign=4024-519

    Elias - https://judiciary.house.gov/uploaded...paign=4024-519

    Perhaps even more shocking than the corrupt dismissal of Berman, because these two suggest more widespread dysfunction. Not sure how long it'll take for the DOJ to recover.

    The hearing has given Republican legislators many opportunities to make asses of themselves.

    At least the states will still be able to prosecute Trump once he leaves office.

    Still begs the question: is the US a banana republic or failed state?

    At this point we need a venn diagram, delineating "conservatives" from the RNC, and Trump's administration from, well, everything.

    "American Exceptionalism" is a myth, full stop. We don't really care about Equal Justice under the Law, or even democracy of and by the people. We just like to ride our high horse, and tell others they should do better, even when we've failed to meet the standards we set for ourselves. It's embarrassing.

    Isn't the venn diagram for an authoritarian a single circle?

    Almost certainly corrupt, deeply embarrassing at the very least:

    Propaganda lies require corroboration to pass muster with the non-Believers. What's the issue? I bet Lewk has no issues with this. Heck, this whole report is probably a fabrication by the Deep State, which is part of antifa, after all. And all this persecution of some very fine Fascists is just flat un-American.

    So that's how you drain a swamp.

    I must admit, I thought it meant something else.
    I could have had class. I could have been a contender.

    I'd rather good people in the system didn't resign and just said no and dragged it out instead. Need to get to 20 January.

    Disgusting that an election loser can lash out vindictively like hat.

    It is not an exaggeration to say that Trump is attempting a coup and to overthrow American democracy. Regardless of people's politics or how people voted any true American "patriot" should value democracy.

    "A man who tried to run for mayor in Hawthorne is among two people charged in a voter fraud case in which thousands of fraudulent voter registration applications were allegedly submitted on behalf of homeless people, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced Tuesday.

    Carlos Antonio De Bourbon Montenegro -- also known as Mark Anthony Gonsalves -- was set to be arraigned Tuesday in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom on 18 felony counts of voter fraud, 11 felony counts of procuring a false or forged instrument, two felony counts of perjury and one felony count of conspiracy to commit voter fraud, along with nine misdemeanor counts of interference with a prompt transfer of a completed affidavit, according to the District Attorney's Office.

    Montenegro, 53, allegedly submitted more than 8,000 fraudulent voter registration applications between July and October, as well as allegedly falsifying names, addresses and signatures on nomination papers under penalty of perjury to run for mayor in Hawthorne."

    Obviously irrelevant to the broader electoral map but people who claim "There is no voter fraud" are utterly ignorant or lying.

    Article continues:
    "No votes were ever actually cast. The registrar caught on quickly and flagged the applications so nobody actually voted."

    Or they've read the whole article.

    So that's the best you can come up with? A case where there was an attempt at voter fraud, but was rooted out?

    You're adorable

    Aside from the fact that nobody claims there's zero fraud, just that it's negligible (and interestingly mostly from Republicans from the reports I've seen so far).

    Just because there are some isolated cases doesn't mean the elections are fraudulent or rigged. Because they're not - if anything they are rigged to the advantage of the GOP.
    Keep on keepin' the beat alive!

    Indeed, the entire electoral college system is biased toward the GOP voter base.

    And that's Why I'm Voting Leave.
