    Especially since many of Trump’s actions are indefensible, like the ones Barr is “defending”

    He’s been violating us all for almost four years now.

    E Jean Carroll is one of about 26 women with highly credible accusations of serious sexual misconduct (of a nature that Trump has repeatedly bragged about, in the “grab ’em by the p@$$y” video and repeatedly on Howard Stern’s radio show, so it is not a question of he said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, she said, it is more like he said and all the women said that he actually did what he bragged about.

    Ms Carroll is particularly credible and especially serious (forcible rape, including penetration), because she was a high level, well-established, highly-respected New York advice columnist. He story is corroborated by numerous people she told AT THE TIME and her story has never changed. We already know that Trump is lying about this incident, because he says that he did not know Ms Carroll and had never even met her. Yet there are photos of them together, proving Trump to be a liar in this matter. Most damning for Trump, SHE HAS PHYSICAL EVIDENCE.

    Ms Carroll notes that she saved the dress she wore that day and has never washed it. The court has ordered Trump (as it did to Bill Clinton) to provide a DNA sample.

    Trump’s defense against Ms Carroll’s defamation lawsuit is that, when he publicly accused her of lying (thus the defamation case), that he was acting within the course and scope of his official position as president of the United States.

    So now, William Barr, as attorney general, is taking over the case because now, all of a sudden, the defendant is the United States government.

    This is a frivolous attempt, and obviously Barr knows it will fail (unless Trump’s court packing pays off with a truly bizarre ruling), but he just wants to stall long enough to avoid having a DNA sample provided before election day.

    It’s just another one of those “meat and potatoes” crimes for Bill Barr. Right, trolls?

    Jared would be worried if Ivanka were in a room alone with tRump. Come to think of it, Jared himself would be worried to be in a room alone with tRump.

    He’s pushing to have Caligula made a Saint. By comparison. He just seems feabile but the Rump isn’t Claudius by any measure. Still, let’s be very concerned by who the Repuslicans want to succeed him.

    @DD Wiz- I am still totally perplexed at the fact that they KNEW ALL of this and STILL put this man in the White House!! That is totally beyond me! Coupled by the fact that he had absolutely NO political experience whatsoever! But it’s become clear now that it’s not so much the fact that they wanted Trump, they just didn’t like Hillary! They failed to realize that sometimes you have to put aside your personal feelings and do what’s right. And now hopefully they’ve seen what a terrible and costly mistake they made!

    People know PINO Trump has been and continues to be a lying conman and would do and say anything to get what he wants. William Barr is an accredited lawyer who is responsible for upholding the laws of the U.S. equally for all. He has, however, shown himself to have the morals of a mob lawyer, loyal only to the one in charge above.

    The defense of Mr. Trump should pretty well erase whatever gains his “tax reform” gave the average tax payer. Wealthy corporations and contributors are, of course, exempt. That’s what public service is all about, these days. We elect those the public is expected to serve, instead of the other way round.

    And apparently sexual assault is about as common for him as eating breakfast. As a woman who has experienced it, I can tell you that announcing it to the world is about as traumatic as the actual assault. And, at least my experience didn’t involve someone who was rich and famous. I am sure those who have had the courage to make the attack known are a small percentage of those who could.

    All those lawyers working on the case knew that unless the case was transferred to the tax payers dime they would be stiffed.. trump is well known for not spending his own money.. The lawyers had no choice.

    Evidently there is a segment of society, e.g.MontanaBill, who FEEL that the president/ultra-wealthy are entitled to special justice unavailable to the average citizen?

    Legal bills are sucking money out of Trump’s campaign funds. (Let that sink in, those of you who donate.) And, with Trump’s love of litigation, they need an additional revenue stream. Trump won’t pay for anything out of his own pocket, and the only bank that will lend to him is undergoing a number of investigations into money-laundering, and Trump is not an innocent bystander. So, where else can he get money for lawyers? The forgotten men and women that he promised to stop forgetting….

    From what I understand the move is legal. That doesn’t make it right. It is also monumentally stupid optics.

    According to future Barr, it turns out that was Joe Biden’s dna on the dress.

    As you so astutely pointed out in your second paragraph, he has done his supporters irreparable harm (except regarding the farmers, who when his tariff war backlashed against them, he was quick to compensate them with taxpayers’ funds).

    He’s denigrated his office, consorted in private with Russians, lied to them about making his taxes public, lied about the severity of the Covid-19 virus while making it appear that masks were unnecessary (while he is insulated, yet constantly being tested), and held massive rallies which showed “spikes” in new cases), yet his “die-hard” base thinks he’s doing everything he promised them.

    I guess all they wanted were MAGA hats and T-shirts. Then again, he is giving white supremacists a boost of confidence, and if they’re armed militants, they may even get to be paid as DOJ mercenaries (with the added incentive of beating up and illegally detaining protesters exercising their freedom to assemble in protest)! I saw one old WASP says he "walks on water. If he had better eyesight (and other senses), perhaps he’d see that he’s walking on thin ice!

    Anyway, he’s making This American Grate Again (on a daily basis). Now if only the veterans and Generals, etc., would take a firm stance against this “stable genius” who “spur-iously” shirked his duty to defend his country in it’s time of need.
