The Justice Department signaled that it won't defend Republican Representative Mo Brooks and their reasoning suggests they might not defend Trump either for their alleged part in the January 6th domestic terrorist attack on the U.S. Capitol.
There are many people in Donald Trump‘s orbit that are now facing legal trouble. The CFO of the Trump Organization, Allen Weisselberg, was recently arrested. And Rudy Giuliani, the former president’s friend and sometimes lawyer has his New York City apartment searched.
Donald Trump is now out of the White House. That means that he is no longer protected from lawsuits and potential criminal charges. One of those lawsuits was a defamation suit filed by E. Jean Carroll.
When a mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on January 6th, the rioters came from all over. A number of them, however, came together. They were from organized groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers.
For months now, the Trump administration has known that it was going to have a hard time winning the election. While it was closer than Democrats hoped, Joe Biden prevailed by a significant margin.
The Republicans had multiple contingency plans in place following Biden’s win. There have been lawsuits filed in a number of states. The president even tried to convince Michigan electors to change their votes for him.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is ignoring what Trump and Barr are doing at the Department of Justice and is instead investigating Obama and 2016.

Trump spent Wednesday morning making sure everyone knows that he knows that Attorney General Bill Barr is not only actively interfering on Trump’s behalf in cases the Justice Department is handling, but that Bill Barr took control of the Mueller case against the Republican President.

Whistleblower Gate just blew up right into Trump's soft spot: Bribery.
A president cannot bribe or accept bribes. He cannot order others to do so on his behalf.
Yes, that's right. In addition to the constitutional standard that lists bribery as a cause for impeachment, President Trump’s Ukraine whistleblower problem just got a lot worse.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) scored a big win for Democrats as the DOJ has agreed to hand over Mueller documents.

Needless to say yesterday was a YUGE news day in Washington, D.C., and it was hard to stay on top of every story that broke during the day.

The White House was working on Thursday to clear the release of a Republican memo alleging bias within the FBI and Justice Department against President Donald Trump as they investigated contacts between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia, according to an administration official.
The deal has been a political lightning rod since it was hatched in October 2016.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions declined to say last week if anyone from the White House had discussed the merger with any Justice Department officials.
Prosecutors have discretion to low-ball charges as justice requires, and are ethically bound to do so. Sessions says to throw the book at suspects instead. This is bad for decent-minded prosecutors and corrodes public trust in government.
It’s not surprising that anyone close to Trump’s campaign would have knowledge of attacks perpetrated at the hand of a foreign government.
