Ongoing Horror at the Highest Levels

I wish everyone in this country could read, or have explained to them, Michelle Goldberg’s terrific op-ed in last night’s online New York Times. It concerns, among other things, the perfidious machinations of Attorney General William Barr in being the prime instrument in Trump’s campaign to prosecute, or at least persecute, everyone who has gotten in his way by defending the rule of law and to intervene in judicial proceedings to protect his political allies who have been convicted for criminal offenses. “There is now one set of laws in this country for people who serve Trump, and another for everyone else,” writes Goldberg. What a tragedy has befallen our nation. All people of good will should make every effort to try to rescue it.
