Glenn Fine steps down from Pentagon IG office after Trump demoted him, thereby ousting him from chairing the Pandemic Response Oversight Committee. He had been the acting inspector general since 2016. w/ @EricSchmittNYT https://t.co/6NqrSKfbDd
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
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
