Can the next administration charge Barr with obstruction?

Every single farking day I think the Trump admin can't get any worse.

Every single farking day I'm proven wrong.

There is no bottom.

I wish these prosecutors would just stop and let them keep doing more crimes. They'll all get pardoned or dropped until the next president antwat, and of they think they're getting away with it, they'll do more illegal stuff.

I'm willing to bet that we're going to see a bunch of criminal charges and "announcements of investigations" for those who are completely clean against Democrats in swing states right before the election. Republican politicians who broke the law need not worry though, they are free from any oversight or threat from prosecution unless they don't do exactly what Trump demands of them.

Oh good, I was worried for a second there.

Phew.

I don't think the statue of limitation will expire before the next admin is inaugurated.  Hopefully it won't be Trump and we might see some actual accountability.

I don't know about that. . .but the next administration can certainly go after the insider trading, as the Statute of Limitations will not have expired.

Only if it was done by a Democrat.

Be under no illusion, if Obama or Clinton had done this, they'd be screaming and in a frothing rage and shouting about "voting from the rooftops" and brandishing their AR-15 penile prostheses and shouting about how they must be impeached NOW.

Trump does it?

1- Pelosi refused to investigate financial and other crimes against Trump because she knows it sets a precedent she doesn't want set because it will hurt her and her friends that aren't as dumb as Trump to do it in the open
2-A President or administration has never gone after its predecessor because they know what it might mean for them and it is a very small club . G.W. Bush should have been prosecuted.

You will not see anything done. The graft will continue. Jamie Dimon has already been rumored to be in the inner circle of the Biden Administration which explains his off character remarks talking up better wages for the working class.

The next administration should create criminal probes into about 50 different members of the current administration, their families, and certain members of thr current congress.

If we don't have to build a new prison by the time this is done to house all these criminals then we have failed.
 
2020-05-20 1:56:20 PM  
Barr better go to prison when the new administration goes into effect.
 
2020-05-20 1:58:07 PM  
In other words, they'll only be filing charges against Dianne Feinstein.

Did any of you really actually think anything was gonna come of it? Really?

Your federal government is now completely and utterly corrupt and compromised.

In the event that there's an actual farking chance that the election in november isn't rigged to putin levels of election farkery, farking vote him out already. I don't care that you don't exactly like biden, i don'tcare that someone not espousing your exact political alignment is running as the dem candidate, i don't care that the candidate isn't dancing for your amusment by maybe not coming to your state enough and telling you all sorts of nice things.

Doesn't the House have the authority to impeach a Senator?

Seriously, it's well beyond the time for the House to begin impeachment hearings against Pompeo, Barr, Trump (again), and several Senators (including Moscow Mitch).  So what if it's an election year?  If they weren't blatantly corrupt, they wouldn't have anything to worry about justifying to their voters.

Can't really open links at the moment. Internet connection is all kinds of farked for two reasons, one being the undersea cable linking southern africa to europe was farking damaged again by some idiot ship ( i swear it's being done intentionally) and secondly our ISP farked up our network for this part of the city cause they're a bunch of cheap Dunning Kruger speciments and now won't admit anything is wrong because their pride is on the line or some shiat. At the moment the only thing that's loading correctly is Youtube, and that's cause they have a loxal mirror and it seems unaffected by the current BS.

For instance, the comnent box where i'm typing this in took a full minute to just load so i could type anything.

Also, excuse the rant, i'm somewhat peeved at the current connectivity issues.

You're forgiven.

Short version is, when you sample a large population, the sample converges on the final result with increasing accuracy the larger the sample grows. If this does not happen, that is prima facie evidence that something is messing with your sampling.

Counting votes is mathematically identical to an ever-growing sample of a population, and should therefore converge on the final value (in terms of vote proportions) long before the count is finished; especially given the mechanical limitations of voting. When the final reported value does not stabilize and instead diverges right at the end of the counting process, that almost always means someone is messing with the vote counts, and in fact has been used as evidence of vote tampering on many occasions. This is also the pattern that was seen repeatedly in critical areas that managed to swing the election to Trump in 2016.

For this pattern to appear once would be a noteworthy statistical anomaly, the mathematical equivalent of the 1000 year flood. For it to happen repeatedly beggars disbelief.

There's more, but you would be better off reading the sources yourself than taking my word for it.

We need to move the AG from the executive branch.  I don't know what's the best way to make it independent, but you can't have it as an executive office.

The AG is clearly necessary for congress to be able to have check and balance power over the executive branch.  And while the AG is controlled by that executive branch, then it essentially nullifies the power the AG has.

Either that, or it should law that congress has a right to independently appoint an AG.
