To be clear, the US Department of Justice serves America, the American people, not the man in the Oval Office. Under A.G. Bill Barr the DoJ has been deeply corrupted. It now serves not the American people but the guy who nominated the bent son-of-a-bitch, Donald Trump.
Trump is embroiled in an entirely personal civil suit for defamation brought by a woman who claims he raped her in a high end New York department store in the mid-1990s. Enter "Bent Bill" Barr.
After New York state courts turned down Trump’s request to delay E. Jean Carroll’s suit, Justice Department lawyers filed court papers Tuesday aiming to shift the case into federal court and to substitute the U.S. for Trump as the defendant. That would mean the federal government, rather than Trump himself, might have to pay damages if any are awarded.
The filing complicates, at least for the moment, Carroll’s efforts to get a DNA sample from the president as potential evidence and to have him answer questions under oath.
Justice Department lawyers argue that Trump was “acting within the scope of his office” when he denied Carroll’s allegations, made last year, that he raped her in a New York luxury department store in the mid-1990s. She says his comments — including that she was “totally lying” to sell a memoir — besmirched her character and harmed her career.Trump was facing a deadline to provide a DNA sample to Ms. Carroll's lawyers. As the clock ticked down the frigging Attorney General of the United States of America intervened to take the alleged rapist, Trump, off the hook.
