Department policy prohibits "using political affiliation and may also prohibit using certain ideological affiliations in hiring and taking other personnel actions with regard to career attorneys," according to the department’s inspector general.
So 13 of the 17 lawyers on Mueller's team are Democrats? Which, I don't know, I'm not sure why they'd be in on Mueller's plot to undermine the Mueller investigation. I guess this conspiracy goes pretty damn deep.

Oh never mind
The only reason to even mention the party affiliation of anyone involved in any investigation of a politician is to de-legitimize anything damaging that's uncovered. Everyone knows this except Trumpkins. Actually many Trumpkins know it too but they won't admit it.

That's certainly not why I brought it up. I brought it up to argue against the idea pushed by many ITT that Barr could make inappropriate redactions to the Mueller report and not have that challenged by Mueller or his team. Mueller is a Republican, sure, but 13 of the 17 lawyers who worked for him are Democrats. Why would they let Barr redact stuff that the public should be made aware of?

You had no idea it was 13 of the 17 until someone said that. You were just parroting the tweets of a senile moron. Lol.

I tend to believe they wouldn't let Barr nor anyone else misrepresent their findings, but that's just my personal belief. I also believe their political party affiliation would have little to nothing to do with that if they're actual professionals and not a bunch of hacks (like Barr).

And even if no one on the Mueller team has made such a copy for insurance against whitewashing (which, come on) they could still go to the Times and say that this section is improperly redacted, this is what it says, this is what Barr is trying to hide. It would be easy and their anonymity would be protected.
You're living in fantasyland. The lawyers subordinate to Mueller will not have seen his report prior to him sending it to the AG.

I agree, and it doesn't seem like Mueller is a hack. I was making this argument because folks were saying that Mueller is a Republican hack and that Mueller would help Barr undermine the Mueller investigation. That's when I brought up that Mueller's team is almost all Democrats. These guys are going to go along with this conspiracy? It's ridiculous.

Bummer. Pretty good shot of me living in Prague in a few months. Loved visiting but probably won't love the racism.

You'll find the food has picked up a great deal, with the biggest surprise (to me anyway) being a number of Vietnamese restaurants offering decent quality grub.

Does Trump think the pope lives at Notre Dame or something? It's Francis' Mar-a-Lago?

Serious question to catholics: Hasn't your ****ing church got enough money to do its own rebuilding or is it all tied up in possible future kiddie fiddling payoffs?

Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

That was a surprise Trolly

however

“Due to France’s laws regarding secularization, the French government owns all churches built before 1905, including Notre-Dame.

“The government lets the Archdiocese of Paris use the building for free, and will continue to do so in perpetuity. The Archdiocese of Paris is responsible for the upkeep of the church, as well as for paying employees.”

Doesn't this come under upkeep?

Almost certainly. A perpetual triple net lease sounds like ownership in all but name.

In fact, it’s better than ownership because (I assume) it means no property taxes.
