Chris Hayes accusing Trump of turning the Justice Department into a political weapon may be one of the most ironic tweets we have seen in quite a while, considering he was silent while Obama himself weaponized the IRS.
And it sounds like the Justice Department as well.
But you know, MSNBC is gonna MSNBC.
The Justice Department is being turned into a political weapon for the President before our eyes, day by day…

It’s like Chris has been asleep for the past decade or so, right?
Is Chris aware that the Justice Department surveilled and sent spies to entrap members of the Trump Campaign in 2016? https://t.co/RNCoRiLqLW

Is Chris aware Barr just appointed an attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia probe? Asking for a friend.
Man….. where you been for the last 10 years….

It was by the last administration. Sad you don't realize that.

You are reposting this from 2015, yes?

The date here says May 13, 2019… shouldn't it be May 13, 2012? That's when it began, on an industrial scale.
Oh right, sorry… you're a court jester and rear guard for the team that did that, so of course you protected them, and said nothing.

Don’t be silly, it’s ok when THEY do it.
This all started under Obama. Now, we’re going to get to the bottom of it, God willing!

Excuse me? Have you been in a coma the last 2 years?

This tweet is like a time capsule from 2012

It’s like we’re doing the Time Warp, only it’s not as much fun without a step to the right, ya’ know?
Spare us the selective moral indignation after Obama used the DoJ as a weapon to target reporters and run guns, as well as the IRS to target people who dared to think differently than him. Remove your head from your ass before tweeting

Seems like pretty good advice, Chris.
Wish you cared when Dems turned the IRS and DOJ into weapons. See operation Choke Point and Lois Lerner.
