One aspect of Trump's subjugation of inspectors general that has received insufficient attention is the unprecedented tactic of installing political appointees, subject to the direct control of department heads, to run the independent watchdog offices. https://t.co/HydXLft1o3

Updated w/ FBI announcement of its own review of Flynn case to see if there was misconduct. Notably not by the independent IG, but rather an adjunct to Barr-controlled Jensen review (same agents). Perhaps a release valve for Trumpworld pressure on Wray. https://t.co/TDJjOpzXiS

I should have said that CJ Roberts handled the application for the stay but -- as the order notes -- he referred it to the full court.

The Justice Department had asked the Supreme Court to stay the appeals court order earlier this month, saying the executive branch would suffer irreparable harm if Congress saw the evidence. https://t.co/eY5PmH1DUH

As expected, Chief Justice Roberts stays the DC Circuit's order that DOJ give Congress secret grand jury evidence from Mueller investigation as Trump administration prepares appeal to the Supreme Court. https://t.co/9ikgZPVKvl

Roshomon in Rice's memory of the Jan 5 meeting (as recorded 15 days later) vs Yates' (as recounted 7 months later). Rice had Obama bringing up the Trump team in general & Comey raising Flynn specifically. Yates recalled Obama bringing up Flynn, didn't remember what Comey said. https://t.co/GtoiyyNf8Q

Dissecting Flynn case https://t.co/7SJkz7UUBA What if judge finds him in contempt? Why is Barr’s rationale disputed? Do protocol irregularities w/ interview matter? Is it abuse if FBI set out to see if he'd lie? Did DOJ wrongly w/hold evidence? Didn’t an Obama general get off?

Coalition of surveillance reform advocates ask Pelosi to permit a vote to amend the FISA bill to include Wyden-Daines amendment that got 59 votes in Senate (needed 60) to require FBI to get full warrants for people's Internet browsing and search histories. https://t.co/VxtcEnomMo
