CDL Medical Exam Doc Who Falsified Records Skates With Community Service, $100 FineAn FMCSA-Certified Medical Examiner has pled guilty to falsifying medical records and attempting to cover up his fraud.

It was all about Barr—how the attorney general intervened to cut Roger Stone, the president’s longtime friend, “a break” in his sentencing for perjury and ordered the DOJ’s antitrust division to investigate marijuana companies because he didn’t like their industry.“I believe William Barr poses the greatest threat in my lifetime to our rule of law,” testified Donald Ayer, a former Justice Department official who preceded Barr as the deputy attorney general under President George H. W. Bush, a declaration that fairly well summed up the afternoon’s proceedings….
