DOJ targets another Trump associate

Just The NewsThomas Barrack, a friend and ally to former President Donald Trump, was arrested and charged Tuesday for violating foreign lobbying laws, obstructing justice, and making false statements.

Barrack, who chaired Trump's inaugural committee, was arrested and charged with illegal foreign lobbying on behalf of the United Arab Emirates, which prosecutors described as an effort to influence the foreign policy positions of the 2016 Trump campaign and administration, according to CNN.

Note the charges. "Violating foreign lobbying laws" is the catch-all charge that the FBI uses to spy on people they want to spy on. And after that the charges are obstructing justice -- meaning he made the FBI's illegal spying harder somehow -- and making false statements -- meaning he didn't say what the FBI wanted him to say.

These charges are, in other words, completely bullshit, fabricated out of thin air because Barrack (and what a coincidence that name is) wouldn't cooperate in the FBI's witch hunt against Trump.
