Justice Department refuses to obey court order

Only in these dark times for America would you see such a headline.

Last night on The Rachel Maddow Show we learned that Justice Department prosecutors in the Flynn case refused to obey Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court order to hand over additional transcripts of conversations with Russians (notably the Russian ambassador) and to un-redact portions of the Mueller report dealing with Flynn.

The first thing that came to (my) mind was whether this is another example of stone-walling by Trump’s Justice Department. Note that just now I did not say “our” Justice Department - I meant “his” Justice Department. IMO, increasingly, now referencing other posts on this blog this morning, the Justice Department is being used by Trump for his own corrupt purposes.

If you don’t want to spend the several minutes viewing the Maddow video, check out the AZ Blue Meanie’s summary, DOJ lawyers defy Judge Emmet Sullivan’s order in Michael Flynn case.
