To the Editor:
In 1992, then Attorney General Bill Barr helped orchestrate pardons of Reagan administration criminals convicted in the Iran-Contra scandal to bury the corrupt involvement of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, by freeing those who would have testified against them.
Fast-forward to 2019, and now Barr is using the power of his office to bury the criminality of themost dangerous lawless, anti-Constitutional, anti-democratic, anti-republic president ever to disgrace the White House.
First, Barr lied to the American public with his obfuscation of the results of the Mueller Report. Barr’s “exoneration” demagoguery hid the fact that Trump and his campaign used foreign influence, via our adversary Russia, to spread lies and propaganda designed to influence America’s most gullible citizens into voting for a pathological liar, con man and fraud as president. Then, President Donald Trump used the powers of the office to obstruct justice in his cover-up.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s primary intention was to destroy America’s republic, constitution, democracy and rule of law from within. So far he is succeeding beyond his wildest expectations.
To this day, Trump and his accomplice Barr are using our Department of Justice to bury corrupt foreign influence in our elections, investigate political rivals, exonerate convicted felons and war criminals, and sweep away investigations into Trump’s money laundering, tax evasion, Iinsurance and banking fraud, rape accusations and other crimes under investigation by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.
We the people of the educated majority must rise up and hold this lawlessness to account, lest we lose our Constitution and the republic for which it stands. This includes ousting Trump's venal sycophant defenders in Congress and removing, via impeachment, the second-most dangerous fascist in America, Bill Barr, who is guilty of enabling the most dangerous fascist in America, Donald Trump himself.
