“Federal prosecutor Nora Dannehy, a top aide to U.S. Attorney John H. Durham in his Russia investigation, has quietly resigned — at least partly out of concern that the investigative team is being pressed for political reasons to produce a report before its work is done.” How do you know when William Barr has gone too far? Career professionals resign. It’s happened before. And it just happened again.

+ Speaking of resignation-driving moves by Barr, here’s a court-appointed adviser blasting the ‘corrupt’ DOJ move to drop Flynn case. “The government makes virtually no effort to deny or rebut the powerful evidence that its…motion improperly seeks to place this Court’s imprimatur on a corrupt, politically motivated favor for the president’s friend and ally.” (Flynn betrayed America and then lied about it. One wonders what Individual One is trying to cover up…)

+ In other corruption news, “the health department’s politically appointed communications aides have demanded the right to review and seek changes to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s weekly scientific reports charting the progress of the coronavirus pandemic, in what officials characterized as an attempt to intimidate the reports’ authors and water down their communications to health professionals.”
