President Trump is weaponizing the Justice Department. At least that’s what former insiders told Rachel Maddow.

And they thought Trump was a Russian asset. So the FBI used a phony dossier to get FISA court approval to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign. But when Special Counsel Mueller investigated Russian Collusion for 2 1/2 yers he came up empty handed.

Weaponizing Wing Man

So now AG Barr is investigating the investigators. And President Obama’s “wing man” Eric Holder calls that “unprecedented” behavior.

The House Judiciary Committee voted to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress. Chairman Jerry Nadler demands that Barr turn over a complete unreacted copy of the Mueller report on collusion with Russia. But Nadler knows Barr can’t do that because the report contains grand jury testimony. And that’s illegal. Barr has made a minimally redacted version available to certain members of Congress. But so far no Democrats have bothered to take a look.

Trump offered relief for young immigrant “Dreamers” in exchange for for his wall. It was an appeal to the Democrat’s base but Pelosi wouldn’t bite. She wants Trump stuffed and mounted, if not devoured.

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has bigger fish to fry. She says climate change will kill us all in 12 years, so why are you worried about money.

Establishment Democrats seem more worried about her.

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar ruled against President Trump on an immigration matter. So Trump called him an Obama judge. And that prompted Chief Justice John Roberts to publicly rebuke the President, explaining, “there are no Obama judges or Trump or Bush or Clinton judges.”

Obama Judges

Mark Thiessen thinks jumping into a political argument is a funny way for Justice Roberts to show he’s above politics.

You may have noticed Trump doesn’t claim to be above politics. So he counterpunched that judges are a threat to national security.

Go here to see a president publicly rebuke the Supreme Court.

“That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing that the Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

“You can be civil but you can’t overcome what they do unless you win elections.” – Hillary Clinton
