Barr’s Justice Department allowed political influence to infect decisions on warrants, charging and sentencing.
This must be a thing of the past. With Attorney General Garland, it will be.
Everyone should expect equal treatment under the law—
Even a former president’s lawyer. https://t.co/vozqFGQVbm
