The Judge is a Democrat and is not following the law, but is being a biased partisan, which is plain to see.
Well, that was expected.
Barr has turned the agency into the Injustice Dept. This has never happened before. And you can add to that he is letting Trump's minions out of jail.
The excuse is the virus, but it's only Trump's minions and there are no Corona cases in one of the jails in question.
They aren't even trying to hide it anymore, and there you are, like a little puppy, making noise without a shred of comprehension.
"In an open letter signed by more than 2,000 Justice Department alumni, the officials argue that Barr “has once again assaulted the rule of law.” “Our democracy depends on a Department of Justice that acts as an independent arbiter of equal justice,” they write, “not as an arm of the president’s political apparatus.”
Justice alums called on Barr to officially resign in their letter, as well as argue that Congress should formally censure the attorney general “for his repeated assaults on the rule of law in doing the President’s personal bidding rather than acting in the public interest.” In the former officials’ view, the decision to drop Flynn’s charges—which they note is “extraordinarily rare, if not unprecedented”—was completely unwarranted, and the Justice Department’s justification “does not hold up to scrutiny.” The DOJ argued in their legal motion that Flynn should not be prosecuted for lying under oath to the FBI about his contacts with Russia (a crime that he has openly confessed to), because they believe Flynn should not have been interviewed by the FBI as part of its Russia investigation in the first place. But as the Justice officials note, there's “ample evidence that the investigation was well-founded”—not to mention “the fact that Flynn admitted under oath and in open court that he told material lies to the FBI in violation of longstanding federal law.” “If any of us, or anyone reading this statement who is not a friend of the President, were to lie to federal investigators in the course of a properly predicated counterintelligence investigation, and admit we did so under oath, we would be prosecuted for it,” the officials write."https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2020/05/barr-drops-flynn-charges-doj-backlash-justice-officials
"The logic of the department’s position in the Flynn case is that the person who maliciously reported you to the FBI could not be prosecuted for making a false statement, because at the time the statements were made, those statements “were not ‘material’ to any viable counterintelligence investigation ... initiated by the FBI.” Or, to put it differently, the FBI can’t investigate whether someone is a Russian agent unless it already has evidence that the person is a Russian agent.
That isn’t the way either counterintelligence investigations or 18 U.S.C. § 1001 work. To begin with, the language of § 1001 does not support the department’s position. Section 1001 makes it a crime to make a materially false statement “in any matter within the jurisdiction of” a federal agency. This language does not require that there be an open investigation, but simply that the matter be “within the jurisdiction” of the FBI.
Counterintelligence is certainly within the FBI’s jurisdiction. And it beggars the imagination to suggest that following up on the Flynn-Kislyak conversation, along with Flynn’s false statements to Vice President Mike Pence and Press Secretary Sean Spicer, was outside the FBI’s jurisdiction. At a minimum, as many have noted, the fact that the Russian government would know that Flynn had lied left him open to potential blackmail by a hostile foreign power—surely a realistic counterintelligence concern. Of course, Flynn might have had innocent explanations for his conversation and his false statements, but the FBI surely would have been derelict in its duty to ignore this potential threat."https://www.lawfareblog.com/justice-departments-faulty-arguments-flynn-case
