The DoJ Did Stop the Attempted Theft of the Election

The WaPo has a long story about the pressure Trump and his toadies were putting on the Department of Justice to overturn the election. Among other things, Rudy the Clown was really pissed because the then acting AG, Jeff Rosen (after Barr tucked his tail and ran), told Rudy that if he had evidence of fraud, to take it to the FBI's Washington Field Office, like anyone else who would have evidence of crimes.

Mark Meadows, who was Trump's COS, also pressured the DoJ to look into the whacko claim that the Italians had used military satellites to steal the election.

What happened is that the Department of Justice refused to sign onto Trump's quasi-legalistic coup attempt. That left the Tyrant of Orange with the sole option of egging on his low-wattage supporters to attack the Capitol.

Which they did.

I used to remind folks that while the former Worst President Ever* was until recently indeed the worst president ever the Cheney Administration accomplished everything it set out to. Maybe more. I would venture that while the most recent Worst President Ever* is indeed the worst president ever Bill Barr accomplished every thing he set out to.

I don't get why the conspiracy is Italy, though. Is that some kind of dog-whistle for... < queue dramatic music in background > *The Vatican* ???

You will note though, that main justice did forward the moobat requests to the relevant US Attorneys.
