Key point here. “The implication is that the FBI and Justice Department knew they had a problem and were concealing it from investigators”.— David A. Clarke, Jr. (@SheriffClarke) January 16, 2018
When a person does this to an FBI agent they are criminally charged with a PROCESS CRIME. They call it OBSTRUCTING. https://t.co/rsdUfiuc5h
This is the precise lie the President told in his speech to a joint session of Congress that led to excellent work on Lawfare by Nora Ellingsen in rebuttal--and ultimately my lawsuit against the Justice Department. It's still a lie.https://t.co/MJm9dQWW5Hhttps://t.co/Hs57gFB1Cx https://t.co/Kx3fcNzdGT— Benjamin Wittes (@benjaminwittes) January 16, 2018
The President is still lying about terrorism, foreign-born people, and Justice Department data. Nora Ellingsen and Lisa Daniels ran the numbers. I filed a lawsuit. Together, we explain the latest Trump tweet: https://t.co/tlN0VsLyEr— Benjamin Wittes (@benjaminwittes) January 17, 2018

To call it “the view of the Justice Department” is a bit of an overstatement. It’s the view taken in a couple of OLC memos, but there is authority to the contrary and the arguments are far from airtight. @johncusack @AriMelber @JoyceWhiteVance @JoyAnnReid @maddow https://t.co/IwQS34yf1m— Laurence Tribe (@tribelaw) January 16, 2018
It’s not my view. It’s the view of the Justice Department that a sitting president cannot be tried for a crime while serving. He can be impeached, removed and then tried. https://t.co/8g9jWP9hU9— Alan Dershowitz (@AlanDersh) January 16, 2018

In summary: 1) A senior Justice Department official just explained last week that domestic extremists often aren't charged with terrorism because terrorism laws are targeted at foreigners. 2) The Justice Department just issued a statement purposefully omitting that context.— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) January 16, 2018
