The Explosive Book By Geoffrey Berman, Former US Attorney From The Southern District of New York, Reveals An Unprecedented Level Of Corruption Of The Department of Justice Under The Leadership of William Barr. The Weaponization Of The DOJ By Trump Involved Barr Going After Opponents Of Trump And Protecting His Criminal Allies. Berman’s Book Reveals High-Level Corruption That Led To The Attempted Coup Against Our Democracy.
A Trump political appointee asked him to charge a prominent Democratic lawyer, Gregory Craig, and to do so before the midterms.
Trump publicly announced he wanted Former Secretary of Defense State John Kerry charged with violating the Logan Act, and Berman said his office was immediately charged with investigating the matter.
A Justice Department official pressured Berman’s deputy, Robert S. Khuzami, to remove all references to Trump in a charging document detailing Michael Cohen’s crimes. (Trump was listed in the document as “Individual-1,” but his identity was obvious, and the document implicated him in the scheme.)
Barr stifled campaign finance investigations emanating from the Cohen case and even floated seeking a reversal of Cohen’s conviction — just like Barr would later do with another Trump ally, Michael Flynn. (Barr also intervened in the case of another Trump ally, Roger Stone, to seek a lighter sentence than career prosecutors wanted.)
