DOJ Told Feds To Back Off Probe Of Former Barr Client

Reuters reports:

Before William Barr became President Donald Trump’s choice to lead the U.S. Department of Justice, he represented Caterpillar Inc, a Fortune 100 company, in a federal criminal investigation by the department.

Much was at stake for Caterpillar: Since 2018, the Internal Revenue Service has been demanding $2.3 billion in payments from the company in connection with the tax matters under criminal investigation. The company is contesting that finding.

A week after Barr was nominated for the job of attorney general, Justice officials in Washington told the investigative team in the active criminal probe of Caterpillar to take “no further action” in the case, according to an email written by one of the agents and reviewed by Reuters.

Do we understand how far the US has fallen in to an authoritarian dictatorship the Republicans want. The republican party wants power, only power. They hate democracy because it denies them that power. We must understand this and use what ever we can to stop them. Morals have nothing to do with this, the other side wants total destruction of our democratic system, we must fight back. Hugs

    Whoever has the best lawyer with the best connections and the worst need of character is usually the winner. The people be damned. We aren’t surprised, are we?

      Hello Cagjr. A two tier justice system. One lenient for the wealthy, one harsh for the rest of us. Again this shows that Republicans do think they are above the laws, that the laws do not apply to them. They don’t pay taxes, the little people do. I am sick of it. If the Democrats do not address this discrepancy in the country they will lose in the next elections, maybe for ever. Hugs
