The Justice Department Is Now Trump’s Personal Fiefdom

Back in the day, if you got caught interfering with the Justice Department it was a big deal. No longer. The Trump strategy is to do it all in public:

BREAKING: AG Barr is taking control of legal matters of interest to President Trump, including the Roger Stone sentencing, according to multiple people familiar with the matter.

Trump is thrilled and wants the whole world to know about it:

Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress!

This is not even a major headline in most newspapers, just a bit of routine news out of the White House. What’s coming next?
