Watkins' case highlights how a mix of naivete, incendiary online political rhetoric & Trump’s baseless claims of election fraud could veer someone off course and into the path of the Justice Dept., according to interviews, court records & her online posts.
Spoke to a sr former justice dept official. He too worries Trump can’t get off, won’t get off, “dictator’s treadmill.” Once you’re on the ride is high, so you’ll do anything, and everything, to keep running and not to crash and burn. I’ve seen it all my life. Never ends well
By dropping the case against Flynn, the Justice Dept lost 50 years worth of ground in maintaining its independence post-Watergate. Once again, Bill Barr is doing Trump's dirty work. And once again, Barr has undermined the legitimacy of our justice system and the rule of law.
