Testimony from Roger Stone's trial suggests it was Randy Credico's role in putting Stone in touch with Margaret Kunstler about a pardon for Julian Assange that served as a key point of leverage over Credico.

Contrary to what the frothy right is saying, Amy Berman Jackson sentenced Roger Stone quite leniently, given the Sentencing Guidelines. Contrary to what anonymous DOJ flunkies are saying, Amy Berman Jackson's sentence in no way vindicates Barr.

I was folding laundry with my partner one day when I looked up at him and said, "Do you think they'd be happy if I did kill myself?"
He looked at me, and took a long breath, and said, "No."
"You're right," I said, "I know it. Nothing makes them happy."
The buzz over the news that Jeffrey Rosen put EDNY US Attorney Richard Donoghue in charge of all Ukrainian investigations distracted from the fact that Bill Barr refused to answer Jerry Nadler's question about whether he should recuse from the investigation he has been personally implicated in.

If Trump gets re-elected — gods help us all — a big part of the blame will sit firmly on the media for its entrenched misogyny, racism, and its failure to adapt a coverage model for contemporary politics.

The frothy right is making a comparison between the Roger Stone and Mike Flynn cases and that of Andrew McCabe. Not only is that inapt on its face, but all the more so when you see how dodgy the case against McCabe really was.

Far be it for me to doubt Bill Barr's ability to manufacture a cover-up. He's damn good at it, that's why he was hired, and he's got a lot of power to use to execute one.
But it'll be harder this time around than it was for Poppy Bush, in…
