    I have worked in DC quite a bit for the last thirty years, and the regular day-to-day folks there are good solid American citizens.
    But the elites, like the GS-15s, the Department of Just-us Legal Thugs, etc, they do whatever the hell they want and laugh at Americans that want justice served against them.

    These people are a criminal syndicate, it seems to me. They are lawless, using the law in the most cynical manner while ignoring the clear intent of the law and any sense of jsutice.

    How could anyone with a hair of honesty give Roger Stone a 9 year sentence for 'obstructing Congress' which isnt even a crime unless they take the guy to court to get a court order. Meanwhile McCabe has told FOUR FULL BLOWN LIES under OATH and the Department of Liberals Just-4-us ignore this and give the traitor a pass.

    What the holy fuck is going on under your own ass, AG Barr? When Obama became President he immediately fired all the attorneys working in the DOJ.
    Obama to replace U.S. Attorneys

    Now Trump supposedly swept house back in 2017.
    Sessions asks 46 Obama-era U.S. attorneys to resign

    But those were state level AGs, not people downtown in DC whoa re still fouling the waters there with the criminal behavior. Why are there still partisan hacks facilitating the criminal syndicate in DC?

    Yes, the political class is at war with the middle class.

    Have you read about the 'Peasants Revolt'?

    Seems like we are having a replay of that, but I doubt it will end the same way.

    The beginnings maybe. But unless some high rankers go to prison for the coup attempt the swamp will still be not only in control, but impervious to legal action.

    I'm thinking that perhaps we should let the Italian Mob run D.C., they'd be more efficient.

    just more bull crap that you chose to believe.... man oh man, you need to abstain from your hate filled right wing media for a while, take a breather from all that bull crud!

    NO PROSECUTOR can just make up a sentence for someone out of the blue.... DON'T YOU KNOW THAT? there are federal guidelines to follow and a point system where points are given for each questioned answered on the case, that then the system calculates the time, for the crime....

    7 to 9 years is what the federal guidelines came out to for Roger's 7 FELONIES, plus some points for threatening/taunting the judge on social media and the contempt of the judge's orders......

    Sessions put in a directive for DOJ prosecutors to always give the higher recommended sentence the federal guidelines calculated.... it was and still is, DOJ policy. THEY FOLLOWED THE RULES.

    Barr, butting in to the case and reneging what they did, is unprecedented, has NEVER been done, by ANY AG, in our DOJ history....

    it's the judge who determines the sentence, the prosecutors just recommend what the guidelines call for.... the judge has discretion to reduce.

    While the DOJ reduced his sentence, the President of the United States, has the sole pardoning power of absolutely anyone he chooses and could have just vacated his entire sentence. I would have done that, just to piss off the left, considering how they've behaved for three years. They've been screaming hatred towards him and anyone that voted for him. Pelosi, said, "when they go low, we go high." The left hasn't gone anywhere but down socially, since the election. Rioting, insulting, spitting, assaulting...behaving like spoiled brats throwing a tantrum. Well, there's a growing number of those that voted for Trump that when spit on, shoved, or their hats are knocked off their heads, are fighting back. We're done trying to restrain ourselves. We'll simply give back what you throw our way.

    But I think an actual sentence has to be given first before you can pardon someone, right?

    Yes, but once it's given, then the President can do as he pleases.
