Mr. Barr, you know the rules, 18 USC 208, 5 CFR 2635 & 28 CFR 25.2: a personal or professional relationship w/ the subject of an investigation requires recusal. Your contacts with Trump & his people about serving as his defense lawyer may well disqualify you. We need some answers

To understand the urgency of , look to France. Neoliberal climate action passes on the costs to working people, offers them no better jobs or services + lets big polluters off the hook. People see it as a class war, because it is.

What we see more clearly now than ever is a classic Russian intelligence operation to compromise and control a corrupt politician by financial and other means to benefit Moscow. It’ll take months or years for America to come to terms with it, but that politician is our president.
