The God(awful) Father

The Constitution, the rule of law, and a liberal democracy walk into a Barr… the question is what will be left of each when they walk back out. In the latest Friday night assault on justice by Justice, William Barr falsely indicated (that’s media-speak for lied) that Geoffrey Berman, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, had resigned and would be replaced by SEC Commission Chair Jay Clayton (a person with no prosecutorial experience). But it turned out that the administration, now being fully run like a crime family, made Berman an offer he could refuse. “I will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate. Until then, our investigations will move forward without delay or interruption.” Was this about the SDNY investigation into Giuliani? Trump’s taxes? Jeffrey Epstein? Money laundering? Deutsche Bank? (Did I mention that Jay Clayton used to represent Deutsche Bank?) Among other things, America is now in urgent need of quantum computing advances because we’re gonna need more processing power to keep up with the crimes coming out of DC.
