Ousted US attorney: Deal Barr offered ’could be seen as a quid pro quo’

Fired US Attorney Geoffrey Berman, in his interview with the House Judiciary Committee, said that Barr tried to lure him away from his position by offering him posts of the head of the DOJ’s civil rights division, and of the SEC, however, he says, when he declined it, Barr told him to resign or he be fired. Berman says Barr wanted to put an outsider in his position to disrupt ongoing probes.

You know what, if it gets the media to focus on something other than covid I am down to play along with this as a new "scandal."

The same media and leftists who praised Obama as he wrote illegal executive orders like DACA and started wars in Libya and Syria, are now screaming "he can't do thaaaaaat!" as Trump plays the same game. I'm opposed to ALL questionable actions by our elected officials, not just the ones that advance an agenda I disagree with.
