What do we have here?

“ The US Justice Department, in an extraordinary move on Tuesday, asked to take over the defense of President Donald Trump in a defamation lawsuit filed against him by E. Jean Carroll, a woman who has accused Trump of sexual assault.
While the alleged sexual assault occurred long before Trump became President, the Justice Department argued that it must take over because Trump's comments spurring the defamation lawsuit came while he was in office. The move -- defending Trump at taxpayer expense -- comes amid ongoing criticism that the Justice Department has acted in the President's personal interests.”

E. Jean Carroll defamation lawsuit: Justice Department wants to defend Trump - CNNPolitics

Just think of all the money Bill Clinton could have saved!

This is the one involving the dressing room at Bergdorf Goodman. They’ve been trying to force Trump to provide a DNA sample for months, and they just lost in state court again.

Meanwhile, the Trump Campaign, which had been paying Trump’s considerable legal bills, is strapped for cash.

“ The move comes as the Trump campaign has reportedly been facing a cash crunch due in part to its spending on legal fees defending suits against the president. According to the New York Times, Kasowitz has been paid more than $820,000 from campaign funds, though it’s not clear if that money was related to his work on Carroll’s suit.”

I doubt that anyone could argue with a straight face that the Barr DOJ isn’t anything more than a tool for Trump’s personal whims, and a weapon to use against his enemies.

This is not how we do things in the US.

Maybe in Russia, Riyhad, or Beijing. But not here.

Bill Clinton may have talked to Janet Reno at an airport, but he never really enjoyed the political luxury. of having the law completely in his pocket like this thing with Barr and Trump.
