Barr's stunt has backfired

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2019/04/05/barrs-stunt-has-backfired/

Barr and Whitaker were brought in to shut down the Mueller investigation. And, they did.

Jeff Sessions was the Attorney General during the Mueller investigation up until his last day on the job, though he recused himself from the Mueller investigation.

Because of Sessions' recusal, Mueller reported to Rod Rosenstein until Trump appointed Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker in November 2018.

Up until November 2018, Mueller had indicted 36 individuals. Only one more individual was indicted after Whitaker becoming Acting Attorney General - Roger Stone.

Roger Stone was the connection to WikiLeaks.

That brings us to two questions posed by Fortune magazine (http://fortune.com/2019/03/26/william-barr-robert-mueller-report-trump-russia-investigation/):

13. What did Mueller conclude about longtime Trump ally Roger Stone’s interactions regarding WikiLeaks?
Starting in June 2016, anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks began publishing Democratic emails that Mueller has said were stolen by Russian hackers. Stone told Trump campaign officials that he had information about WikiLeaks releasing documents that would be damaging to Clinton, according to prosecutors. Trump campaign officials allegedly pressed Stone to find out when more dumps of Clinton material would be coming. And Stone used Twitter to contact Guccifer 2.0, which Mueller said was an alias for the Russian intelligence officers who stole the emails.

There was speculation that Stone could have been a conduit to WikiLeaks—but no direct connection has been established. (Stone has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to congressional investigators about the matter and engaged in witness tampering.)

14. What happened to the draft charges against Jerome Corsi, the political gadfly who allegedly acted as an intermediary between Stone and WikiLeaks?
Mueller’s team was said to have offered Corsi a deal in which he would have pleaded guilty to perjury over statements he made about his interactions with WikiLeaks. He refused, gave copies of the draft agreement to the news media and ridiculed Mueller’s investigation in interviews. Because Corsi wasn’t charged, details about the investigation of him may remain under wraps.

It's my contention, though I cannot prove it, that it appears Mueller was closing in on WikiLeaks, and that WikiLeaks may be the bridge to Trump's collusion with the Russians.

It's my theory that Jeff Sessions was ordered to resign so that Whitaker and Barr could be brought in to shut down the Mueller investigation.

New Mexico: State Senate Committee approves legalization legislation

New Mexico: Bipartisan backing for marijuana legalization

SANTA FE – For years, most New Mexico Republicans have steadfastly opposed proposals to legalize recreational marijuana use.

But with an increasing number of states moving toward cannabis legalization, three Senate Republicans have teamed up with three Democratic colleagues on a bipartisan bill, filed Thursday, that would allow for the sale of marijuana through state-run stores.

“Marijuana is not coming – it’s here,” said Sen. Mark Moores, R-Albuquerque, one of bill’s sponsors. “What is worrisome to us is if we don’t try to get ahead of it.”

New Mexico: Marijuana legalization bill advances in House

Sorry for the usual ad popups. I was able to click them away.

Anyway, a bill advanced out of one committee to allow legalization in NM. We'll see what happens. I hope the bill makes it all the way to Governor Lujan-Grisham, and she signs it into law.

GoFundMe for government workers impacted by the shutdown: What's your opinion?

https://www.gofundme.com/cause/shutdown

I think it's a good idea. My wife thinks that it benefits Trump indirectly in that he can keep the shutdown going, knowing that government workers impacted by the shutdown can get aid from non-profits.

What do you think?

We have an impeachable offense. Right here and right now.

Dereliction of duty.

Dereliction of duty generally refers to a failure to conform to rules of one's job, which will vary by tasks involved. It is a failure or refusal to perform assigned duties in a satisfactory manner.

Trump, as President of the U.S., through the Transportation Security Administration, Department of Homeland Security, is responsible for protection of the nation's transportation systems to ensure freedom of movement for people and commerce.

TSA, in order to operate, has to be funded, including the salaries of its employees. By refusing to fund the salaries of TSA agents, President Trump is not fulfilling his duty.

President Trump cannot reasonably rely on the requirement that TSA employees stay on their jobs without being paid.
