Ignoring all advice from the Center for Disease Prevention and Control, Trump gathers the rich, the powerful, the influential and the connected together at the White House for a special super-spreader event. The "masters-of-the-universe" crowd (h/t to Thomas Wolfe's Bonfire of the Vanities), decides to ignore all CDC guidance: no masks, packed shoulder-to-shoulder, lots of hugs and kisses. The political titans apparently believe that their wealth, status and influence serve as a magical shield, protecting them from the coronavirus. Now, one after another, they are testing positive. On another front, Trump has no less than 10 doctors in crisp, white lab coats closely and carefully monitoring his every vital sign as he sends DOJ attorneys into court to fight like hell to take health care away from tens of millions of America. Donald Trump's deadly hypocrisy is the height of callousness.If you are interested in supporting our content, please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at:  https://www.patreon.com/glennkirschnerMy podcast, "Justice Matters with Glenn Kirschner" can be downloaded where you get your podcasts.Follow me on: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2 https://www.Facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirschner2Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/glennkirschner)

The Upcoming Durham Report, Election Interference and Other Bill Barr Abuses

Bill Barr tasked U.S. Attorney John Durham with going on a witch hunt - investigating the Trump-Russia investigators - in efforts to undermine the origins of the Russia investigation, notwithstanding the fact that the Mueller Report AND the DOJ Inspector General (IG) Horowitz report AND the Senate Intelligence Committee reports all concluded that the Trump-Russia investigation was properly opened. Barr is looking for a different answer - one that helps Trump and hurts Biden. Hence, the Durham investigation. One of Durham's top prosecutors, Nora Dannehy, abruptly resigned due to Barr pressuring Durham to issue an interim report PRIOR TO the election. Barr conduct is dead wrong in two ways: first, prosecutors do not issue reports. In my 30 years as a federal prosecutor, I never once issued a report. Second, nothing should be done by prosecutors within 60 days of a presidential election that could impact public opinion about the candidates. Barr violates all DOJ norms, protocols, traditions and ethical standards by pressuring Durham to issue an interim report so close to the election.If you are interested in supporting our content, please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at:  https://www.patreon.com/glennkirschnerFollow me on: https://www.twitter.com/glennkirschner2 https://www.Facebook.com/glennkirschner2Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glennkirschner2Support the show (http://www.patreon.com/glennkirschner)

We all know that Mitch McConnell has been packing the courts with ideologues, including several judges rated "not qualified" by the American Bar Association to serve as federal judges. The judicial candidates identified by McConnell and nominated by Donald Trump have inarguably degraded the quality of the federal judiciary.This episode discusses a three-part plan to unpack the courts. After nearly four years of Donald Trump's reign, it's become apparent that we can no longer rely on the federal government to police itself. The concept of checks and balances, and coequal branches of government is becoming a distant memory.If you are interested in supporting our content, please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at http://www.patreon.com/glennkirschnerSubscribe to my YouTube channel:  http://www.youtube.com/glennkirschner2Follow me on Twitter: http://www. twitter.com/glennkirschner2Follow me on Facebook:  http://www.facebook.com/glennkirschner2

Trump Crimes Commission

We The People have had to contend with an unending stream of crime, abuse and corruption from the administration of Donald J. Trump. Come January, when we have a law-abiding president and a law-enforcing attorney general, it will be time for accountability. As a 30-year federal prosecutor, I can assure you that there can be no healing without accountability. There can be no deterring other political criminals without accountability. There can b no justice without accountability. When it comes to political criminals, we've had to learn this lesson the hard way. Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon, depriving the country of healing, of accountability and of justice. Indeed, the pardoning of Richard Nixon gave birth to the Donald Trump presidency. This time, there can be no "let's let bygones be bygones." This time there can be no turning the other cheek. This time there must be no putting our long national nightmare behind us by DECLINING to hold a criminal president accountable. This time there must be accountability. This time there must be justice. Because Justice Matters. If you are interested in supporting our content, please consider becoming a #TeamJustice patron at https://www.patreon.com/glennkirschner
