    See also the reason twump cultists need to play little “hypocrisy” games is they know they are in deep **** so the only way they can pull off any victory is by trying to make their opponents look just as bad as they are. Its the never play defense tactic

    The op is about twump and not releasing the records. Its typical response by people that still think the segregationists are still democrats.

    Trump has nothing to do with releasing records or not... Trump is not a Master of Puppets controlling everything in government.

    One can only wonder what/who they are protecting with this dick move.
    Probably just to screw with YOUR mind.
    We walk by faith, not by sight.

    So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

    No one was ever charged in the killing of two black couples by a group of white men in rural Georgia, known as the Moore’s Ford lynchings.


    Mourners carried the coffin of a lynching victim out of Mount Perry Baptist Church in Bishop, Ga.
    in 1946. The lynching was a quadruple killing.




    Even after the passage of 74 years, the Trump Justice Department fought against the release of the grand jury testimony. More than 100 people testified before a federal grand jury in December 1946 but no one was indicted.

    Reminds me somewhat of the eventual indictment and conviction of Klansman Byron De La Beckwith (1920-2001) for the 1963 assassination of Medgar Evers in his Jackson, Mississippi driveway. After two trials resulted in hung juries in 1964, Beckwith thought he had escaped justice. But in 1994 buried trial documents were unearthed and Beckwith was indicted, convicted of the murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
    Are any of the suspects going to be alive? If not this is just an academic exercise to see if the government would release the documents.

    What was the purpose of this exercise in the first place?

    He sure controls William Barr.


    COVID has taken 100,000 American lives due to Trump's incompetence. They can't vote. Will you?
