Barr gets waiver on case linked to inquiry into Trump's inauguration fund

Source: Politico.com

The waiver, dated April 16, allows Barr to participate in “the investigation and litigation of the 1MDB matter in which his former law firm represents an entity involved in the matter.”

Barr was previously a lawyer for the firm Kirkland & Ellis, whose senior partner Mark Filip now represents Goldman Sachs in the 1MDB investigation.

The head of DOJ’s criminal division, Brian Benczkowski, is also a Kirkland & Ellis alum. But White House lawyer Emmet Flood issued an ethics waiver to Benczkowski in November that allowed him to participate in the 1MDB investigation.

The waiver could also give Barr a window into an investigation in the Eastern District of New York that involves the Trump Victory committee, a political action committee dedicated to re-electing Trump in 2020.

1. Another one bites the dust, heh, heh.

How many investigations can Barr subvert, he's trying to set a record it seems.

4. Broidy's tied into the 1MDB fustercluck, Tom Barrack has spoken with Mr. Mueller's team, and his

deputy inauguration go-to guy was one RICK GATES, Sam Patten gave up some goodies, and I wonder what Michael D. Cohen knows about the inaugural selling of favors, so

fuck you, Barr

Trumpworld is a target-rich environment.

6. Why is WH counsel issuing waivers for DoJ? Justice has its own ethics office. This smacks of

overreach.
