Former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates swiped at President Trump in an opinion piece published Friday in The Washington Post, accusing him of using the Department of Justice (DOJ) as "his personal grudge squad" after the handling of Roger Stone's case.

"From virtually the moment he took office, President Trump has attempted to use the Justice Department as a cudgel against his enemies and as a shield for himself and his allies," Yates wrote. "The president has attempted to order up investigations of his perceived political enemies and enlist the department to protect his friends. With every blow, the wall of Justice independence has wobbled a bit more. This week, it teetered on the verge of collapse."

The op-ed comes after Trump asserted Friday that he has "the legal right" to insert himself into the Justice Department's handling of criminal cases. Those remarks came a day after Attorney General William Barr said in an ABC News interview that the president's tweets were making his job more difficult.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
