Same Question, Different Year
Why is Individual-1 still at large?
Last night’s Rachel Maddow show reprised the question I asked here on Substack in June 2021: Why Is Individual-1 Still at Large?
MSNBC has posted some highlights here in which:
Rachel Maddow reviews the “weird saga” of the investigation of Donald Trump's hush money payments to Stormy Daniels and the efforts by Bill Barr's DOJ to make the whole case disappear. With Barr out of the way and Trump no longer in office, New York District Attorney Alvin Bragg is presenting evidence to a grand jury.
The facts are simple. Trump committed a proven crime to become President. Then he was let off the hook because he was supposedly immune from prosecution because he was President.
That changed on January 20, 2021.
But, as we are now we learning from David Firestone in the New York Times (read free with this link), Bill Barr’s unrelenting corruption in two years as Attorney General turned the DOJ into “an instrument of his ideology and politics.”
According to US Attorney Geoffrey Berman (aka the guy who arrested Jeffrey Epstein), Barr also did everything he could possibly do to interfere with investigations to ensure Trump would not be charged for his proven crimes after he left office.
And speaking of Jeffrey Epstein: Maybe it’s time to re-open that investigation too.

I might be spitballing here but anyone remember that Barr actually visited Epstein at Rykers.
It was the first time in history that a sitting AG ever went personally to Rykers Island.
Ostensibly (still curving in on that spitball) to find out if the canary was going to sing. Obviously the answer was yes because Epstein died under very mysterious circumstances shortly after.
After a secret, swift investigation, he was termed an "official suicide."
Get that? Sounds like it was dictated by the guy who knows more about knowing more than anybody. King of syntax. Next Emperor of Greenland. Tangerine Traitor.
You should know this better than anyone.
If Hillary had become President and hadn’t rooted out all the pro-Russian FBI, I wonder if they’d have changed that DOJ memo just so they could indict her over a nothing-burger like Durham did with Sussman?
