@mbyrnes37 @emptywheel Brian Benczkowski was appointed Head of the DoJ Criminal division by R' votes only. He would replace Rosenstine if Trump fired him.

Benczkowski could fire Mueller and end all the work Mueller's people were doing. A Constitutional Crisis yes.
States AGs are not under the DoJ.
@mbyrnes37 @emptywheel State charges against Trump and his crime family can not be pardoned. NY and NJ have enough to bring Trump & Co. down.

Mueller is always 10 steps ahead of Trump and his Three Stooges Legal Team.
I'm sure Mueller saw this coming when Benczkowski was appointed to DoJ.
@mbyrnes37 @emptywheel The rush to confirm Kavanaugh is connected to #TrumpRussia

Getting Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court has been the GOP endgame for a long time.

I started posting this thread right after the Nunes recording came out.

I am angry & heartbroken for anyone who has ever been dismissed like #ChuckGrassley is dismissing #ChristineBlaseyFord and her very serious allegations, in order to rush a vote for a lifetime appointment to the highest court in the land.

So, I wrote a letter to @senjudiciary.
Contacting members of the committee was hard. I got MANY responses from senators that they only will hear from their stateโ€™s constituents.

So I ask you all, if you live in a state with a Senator on Judiciary, please contact them.

Dear members of the Senate Judiciary:

September 2018 is 27 years after Anita Hill and we see the same despicable thing is about to happen. Today, #ChuckGrassley said that the FBI will not do further investigation...

Y'all I'm right there w/ you on the skepticism about Flake, but here's the thing: We can use this to pressure other senators. (E.g., Do they really feel comfortable rushing thru a nomination? Flake doesn't. Why not postpone the vote? What's the rush? etc).

Worth a try, no?
Be skeptical. We all should be. But strategize, too. Don't give Flake an out by writing him off immediately because he might just take the out you offer him. And other senators will almost surely watch it happen and do the same. So let's hold him to his word. Can't hurt, right?
You could even... call your senators & say: "Hey, I agree with Sen. Jeff Flake. I don't think we should rush through #Kavanaugh's nomination for a lifetime appointment. Why not #PostponeTheVote? Flake says he's not comfortable voting until he knows what he's voting for. Are you?"
