Why Impeaching Bill Barr is More Urgent Now Than Ever

Thom plus logo Impeaching Attorney General Bill Barr won't just protect us from a corrupt senior law-enforcement official; it will also strengthen our protection against the dangerous, autocratic tendencies of Donald Trump.

Trump famously asked once, "Where is my Roy Cohn?" He has found that person, that corrupt lawyer, in William Barr.

As we head toward the November election and January 20, Donald Trump becomes more dangerous by the day. He has learned how to use the levers of power in the White House, and has applied them in increasingly corrupt ways, transferring over 2 trillion dollars of our tax money to himself and his corrupt oligarch friends.

But in addition to corrupting the flow of money in our country, Trump has also corrupted our criminal justice system, the last bulwark to protect us against people like him.

Bill Barr should certainly be impeached, and then prosecuted, for the very clear crimes he has committed while in office, as well as for his perversion of American standards of justice.

But, more important, Bill Barr needs to be impeached as soon as possible to remove from Donald Trump the power to "help his friends and punish his enemies," a power that is the hallmark of a dictator.

Impeaching Bill Barr is an essential step to saving our republic and restoring American democracy.

Barr will NEVER be impeached. He's there to perform another cover-up, just as he did involving Iran-contra years ago.

DJT AND Barr work for the same segment of society that is above the law. Just like the majorities of both political parties.

Re, the latest political flap, that Russia has offered bounties on US troops.

"What goes around, comes around" Did we not do the same, by arming and hireing Osama to kill Russians when they were in Afganistan?

Ending all our business wars in far off lands might just preclude these SNAFUS from occuring...

Speaking of impeachment, was Kavanagh under oath in his confirmation hearing when he said he would support stare decisis?

From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
