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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
