Democrats will push back on Barr with all they've got

Less than 3 minute read

October 2, 2019

The Democrats’ attempt to derail Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the FBI’s “Trump/Russia” probe is already in full swing.

As FOX News’ Tucker Carlson reported on Tuesday, the WASHINGTON POST cited the concerns of unnamed (of course) federal bureaucrats that they might be subject to the same oversight that would apply to others. “Current and former intelligence and law enforcement officials expressed frustration and alarm Monday that the head of the Justice Department was taking such a direct role in reexamining what they view as conspiracy theories and baseless allegations of misconduct,” said WAPO.

Hey, if they’d like to talk about conspiracy theories and baseless allegations of misconduct, how about the unsubstantiated charge that then-candidate Donald Trump was in cahoots with Vladimir Putin, acting essentially as a Russian agent and Putin’s puppet and possibly being blackmailed over compromising videos made of him in a Moscow hotel? Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of partisan anti-Trumpers investigated the new President for almost two years, dragged people into court and bankrupted them, spent many millions of taxpayer dollars and still came up with no evidence that any of this was true.

Those "alarmed" bureaucrats may have been unnamed, but guess who was complaining about the same thing openly on CNN? Why, it was fired deputy FBI Director-turned-CNN-contributor Andrew McCabe. “The circumstances behind the opening of the Russia case are not a mystery,” he said. “I have testified under oath about them as early as December of 2017. Jim Comey has made comments about them publicly. I have written books that have touched on the issues. So...the circumstances behind the case are widely known. They were entirely validated by the special counsel investigation...”

Um, what does “entirely validated” mean to you? As the special counsel never found any evidence of wrongdoing, there has been no validation of the decision to investigate a Presidential candidate, and we have yet to learn why the case was opened in the first place and why the FISA application was made and renewed three more times. But, come on, McCabe and Comey have TALKED about this and have even written BOOKS about it. Well, gee, that’s good enough for me! Let’s just put this baby to bed and worry no more about it.

Do you think the Democrats would be satisfied with that if it had been a Republican-appointed special counsel putting THEM through the wringer? Look at how they’re attacking Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham just for doing their jobs. It appears the memo has gone out telling all Democrats and media (but I repeat myself) to refer to allegations of FBI misconduct as “conspiracy theories” believed only by gap-toothed Trump supporters in MAGA hats. If anything has been shown to be a conspiracy theory, it’s the allegation that Trump was working with a foreign government to tip the election in his favor. Once again –- and I think Barr’s investigation will show this –- if you want to know what the Democrats have been doing, look at what they’re saying about Republicans.

Barr has been open about asking foreign officials to aid in his inquiry, but that doesn’t matter; reports of his contacts have been sensationalized, as if some dark state secret were being revealed. As is typical, MSNBC gets the Academy Award for melodrama, with serious intonations such as this from Lawrence O’Donnell: “William Barr could be as deeply implicated in what Nancy Pelosi has called ‘the Trump cover-up’ as Richard Nixon’s attorney general was in the Nixon cover-up. Tonight, the attorney general of the United States once again needs his own personally paid-for criminal defense lawyer who might soon become the only person William Barr can safely talk to in Washington.”

Dear me.  I’ll admit, everyone in the Trump administration has to be careful about talking, but not because they’ve done anything wrong. It’s because of all the leaking!

Democrats went apoplectic at the news that Barr and Durham flew to Italy last week as part of their look into the origins of the “Russia” probe. Barr has been trying to find out about the Western intelligence connections of Joseph Mifsud, described in the Mueller report as a London-based professor with connections to...Russia. (If you want to find out how this character Mifsud was involved in the overseas spying that was done on Trump campaign associates, read the book by George Papadopoulos, DEEP STATE TARGET.) Papadopoulos claims that it was Mifsud who told him the Russians had damaging information on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails, and who also recorded their conversations.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been looking into the conduct of the FBI in opening the “Trump/Russia” case, but his is only an internal investigation, meaning it doesn’t look outside the Bureau. His report will probably come out sometime this month. Barr, in contrast, was authorized to “cast a wide net.” He can talk to anyone he wants, anywhere in the world, and is receiving cooperation from foreign leaders. There are serious allegations of the FBI working with the CIA to spy on Americans on foreign soil, and Barr needs to find out if that's what they were doing.

If we’re going to talk about theories, there’s one that makes a lot of sense, and it’s this: Although the Democrats have been talking “impeachment” since the day Trump was elected, the all-out impeachment frenzy we’re seeing right now is happening because Barr, Durham and Horowitz have been sniffing around too close to what Obama’s Justice Department was doing during the 2016 election. The warmer Barr gets in his search, the colder and clammier the Democrats get. That sensation is fear. So the attack on Barr has begun, and it will be relentless. They want Barr recused or gone.

According to THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson have released a letter to Barr asking him to investigate “brazen efforts by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign to use the government of Ukraine for the express purpose of finding negative information on then-candidate Trump in order to undermine his campaign.” (Of course, this issue is related to the DNC server and Crowdstrike, which Trump mentioned in passing to Ukrainian President Zelensky.) If Barr takes this on, he’ll have pushback like never before. But Barr is ready for attacks from the Hillary Machine. He knew the job was dangerous when he took it.

Jay Sekulow has a spectacular piece at the American Center for Law and Justice website that explains why the President is on solid constitutional grounds when requesting cooperation from other nations in investigating violations of our criminal laws. Indeed, we have treaties concerning this with nations such as Ukraine. And this authority would extend to Barr, who has been charged by the President to investigate.

Finally, the Unintentional Laugh Of The Day comes from Obama “wing man,” former Attorney General Eric Holder, who said this (of BARR’S DOJ): “I think when people of this country look at the Justice Department and think it is in some ways politicized, that has a negative long-term impact on the department.”

    COMMENTARY: Our system of justice demands fairness. Every American is entitled to a fair hearing by a jury of his peers or a fair judge. That includes the President. Every congressional committee chairman and almost every Democrat on the three congressional committees involved with the impeachment inquiry have prematurely and publicly declared their presumption of guilt on the part of the President. This is proof positive that the President, an American citizen, will be denied his right to a fair hearing. The ultimate goal is a verdict —- a vote from congress on the guilt or innocence of the President. If I was facing a preliminary hearing leading to trial on some charge and the judge assigned my case publicly declares that he thinks Steve Crabtree is guilty, I’d have my attorney demand that the judge recuse himself from hearing the case. Hence, I don’t understand why the President’s attorneys don’t file suit in the highest possible court seeking to have every member of the House who has publicly declared a presumption of guilt or innocence recused from presiding over, hearing evidence concerning or having a vote of any kind regarding this matter. It could end up before the Supreme Court. So be it. We’ve a conservative majority on the court. Lastly, the Articles of Impeachment expressly state that the full house must first vote in favor of an impeachment inquiry before one can begin. Pelosi has usurped the law. Many Democrat congressmen represent districts that President Trump won by an overwhelming majority. They’re up for re-election in 2020. It is obvious why Pelosi is skirting the law. I’m not an attorney and I don’t play one on TV. But I’m hoping the President’s attorneys, Giuliani and Sekulow, have a plan that I just can’t see. All... just in my humble opinion. God bless America!

    Boy oh boy. Those dirty Democrats will stop at nothing to unseat a duly elected president. We the people know exactly what they’re up to, despite what we’re being fed by the media. We know how close Barr and Durham are getting to exposing all the dirty politics that occurred in the 2016 election. In spite of all the conniving, Hillary still lost. And I thank God every day for that.

    I"m usually a very intense, easy to rile person and when I hear the name Obama I think treasonous traitor and wonder why he would want to destroy his country. But, the real reason I am writing is to wonder what it takes to be a follower of the new Communist party. What information are the followers missing? Have they no understanding of history? Have they ever heard of Stalin, Marx, Lenin? How can people raised in America be so ill informed, so brainwashed? It's like a herd of lemmings heading for the cliff. Thanks to our Communist infiltrated education system and media we are in deep S*&T.

    For decades, international families and conglomerates have been "running" the business of the United States. We're a "cash cow" for these trillion-dollar and billion-dollar "investors". And they ARRANGE the outcomes of political elections, businesses that succeed and fail, the migration of peoples from one nation to another, and the moral and ethical climate of nations. They "fix" the big games where money is concerned: arms sales, drug trafficking, sex and slave commerce. They are "above the law", enjoying the super good life while tucked away in their estates, attending a third of the wonderful parties and soiree's to which they are prayerfully "invited" by messenger. Outside they are SO BEAUTIFUL, but inside they are the "whitened sepulchres" of which Jesus spoke. The McCabes, Lynches and Comeys are their minions, and will fall. Hillary will pass away, one way or another. But we prayed for morality and a stop to the evil governmental slavery for which we had voted or been forced to endure for SO LONG. God Bless America! God SAVE President Trump. Pray HARD.

    Barr is getting too close for comfort! Theresa May was probably in on it from Britain as well. John, “

An attorney who thinks second hand accusations are relevant when in a COURT of LAW they would NOT be? Either he is an IDIOT, doubtful, PARTISAN, maybe, or CORRUPT. The BEST thing Trump should do, and can, is to COMPLETELY DISMANTLE the CIA and the FBI. Truman in 1963 REGRETTED implementing the CIA because of corruption.

Special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of partisan anti-Trumpers investigated the new President for almost two years, dragged people into court and bankrupted them, spent many millions of taxpayer dollars and still came up with no evidence that any of this was true.

Those "alarmed" bureaucrats may have been unnamed, but guess who was complaining about the same thing openly on CNN? Why, it was fired deputy FBI Director-turned-CNN-contributor Andrew McCabe. “The circumstances behind the opening of the Russia case are not a mystery,” he said. “I have testified under oath about them as early as December of 2017. Jim Comey has made comments about them publicly. I have written books that have touched on the issues. So...the circumstances behind the case are widely known. They were entirely validated by the special counsel investigation...”

Um, what does “entirely validated” mean to you? As the special counsel never found any evidence of wrongdoing, there has been no validation of the decision to investigate a Presidential candidate, and we have yet to learn why the case was opened in the first place and why the FISA application was made and renewed three more times. But, come on, McCabe and Comey have TALKED about this and have even written BOOKS about it. Well, gee, that’s good enough for me! Let’s just put this baby to bed and worry no more about it.

Do you think the Democrats would be satisfied with that if it had been a Republican-appointed special counsel putting THEM through the wringer? Look at how they’re attacking Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham just for doing their jobs. It appears the memo has gone out telling all Democrats and media (but I repeat myself) to refer to allegations of FBI misconduct as “conspiracy theories” believed only by gap-toothed Trump supporters in MAGA hats. If anything has been shown to be a conspiracy theory, it’s the allegation that Trump was working with a foreign government to tip the election in his favor. Once again –- and I think Barr’s investigation will show this –- if you want to know what the Democrats have been doing, look at what they’re saying about Republicans.

Barr has been open about asking foreign officials to aid in his inquiry, but that doesn’t matter; reports of his contacts have been sensationalized, as if some dark state secret were being revealed. As is typical, MSNBC gets the Academy Award for melodrama, with serious intonations such as this from Lawrence O’Donnell: “William Barr could be as deeply implicated in what Nancy Pelosi has called ‘the Trump cover-up’ as Richard Nixon’s attorney general was in the Nixon cover-up. Tonight, the attorney general of the United States once again needs his own personally paid-for criminal defense lawyer who might soon become the only person William Barr can safely talk to in Washington.”

Dear me.  I’ll admit, everyone in the Trump administration has to be careful about talking, but not because they’ve done anything wrong. It’s because of all the leaking!

Democrats went apoplectic at the news that Barr and Durham flew to Italy last week as part of their look into the origins of the “Russia” probe. Barr has been trying to find out about the Western intelligence connections of Joseph Mifsud, described in the Mueller report as a London-based professor with connections to...Russia. (If you want to find out how this character Mifsud was involved in the overseas spying that was done on Trump campaign associates, read the book by George Papadopoulos, DEEP STATE TARGET.) Papadopoulos claims that it was Mifsud who told him the Russians had damaging information on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of emails, and who also recorded their conversations.

Inspector General Michael Horowitz has been looking into the conduct of the FBI in opening the “Trump/Russia” case, but his is only an internal investigation, meaning it doesn’t look outside the Bureau. His report will probably come out sometime this month. Barr, in contrast, was authorized to “cast a wide net.” He can talk to anyone he wants, anywhere in the world, and is receiving cooperation from foreign leaders. There are serious allegations of the FBI working with the CIA to spy on Americans on foreign soil, and Barr needs to find out if that's what they were doing.

If we’re going to talk about theories, there’s one that makes a lot of sense, and it’s this: Although the Democrats have been talking “impeachment” since the day Trump was elected, the all-out impeachment frenzy we’re seeing right now is happening because Barr, Durham and Horowitz have been sniffing around too close to what Obama’s Justice Department was doing during the 2016 election. The warmer Barr gets in his search, the colder and clammier the Democrats get. That sensation is fear. So the attack on Barr has begun, and it will be relentless. They want Barr recused or gone.

According to THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson have released a letter to Barr asking him to investigate “brazen efforts by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton campaign to use the government of Ukraine for the express purpose of finding negative information on then-candidate Trump in order to undermine his campaign.” (Of course, this issue is related to the DNC server and Crowdstrike, which Trump mentioned in passing to Ukrainian President Zelensky.) If Barr takes this on, he’ll have pushback like never before. But Barr is ready for attacks from the Hillary Machine. He knew the job was dangerous when he took it.

Jay Sekulow has a spectacular piece at the American Center for Law and Justice website that explains why the President is on solid constitutional grounds when requesting cooperation from other nations in investigating violations of our criminal laws. Indeed, we have treaties concerning this with nations such as Ukraine. And this authority would extend to Barr, who has been charged by the President to investigate.

Finally, the Unintentional Laugh Of The Day comes from Obama “wing man,” former Attorney General Eric Holder, who said this (of BARR’S DOJ): “I think when people of this country look at the Justice Department and think it is in some ways politicized, that has a negative long-term impact on the department.”

Holder says Barr is 'paying a price' for spearheading Russia probe misconduct investigation

    The Democrats know that they are going to be in deep trouble when Barr's his investigation comes up with the truth. God Bless Barr . As far Holder goes he is afraid what Barr will find out about him. God Bless are president.

    I am sick to death of Democrats! They are the lowest form of pond scum on the earth! They are willing to lie, cheat and deceive everyone in order to achieve their desires.

    They should all be investigated and put in jail!

    If the whistle blower stays anonymous he/she does not exist therefor the complaint is not creditable! This concludes the CIA was behind issuance of the complaint and President Trump should revise the CIA/FBI.

    COMMENTARY: Our system of justice demands fairness. Every American is entitled to a fair hearing by a jury of his peers or a fair judge. That includes the President. Every congressional committee chairman and almost every Democrat on the three congressional committees involved with the impeachment inquiry have prematurely and publicly declared their presumption of guilt on the part of the President. This is proof positive that the President, an American citizen, will be denied his right to a fair hearing. The ultimate goal is a verdict —- a vote from congress on the guilt or innocence of the President. If I was facing a preliminary hearing leading to trial on some charge and the judge assigned my case publicly declares that he thinks Steve Crabtree is guilty, I’d have my attorney demand that the judge recuse himself from hearing the case. Hence, I don’t understand why the President’s attorneys don’t file suit in the highest possible court seeking to have every member of the House who has publicly declared a presumption of guilt or innocence recused from presiding over, hearing evidence concerning or having a vote of any kind regarding this matter. It could end up before the Supreme Court. So be it. We’ve a conservative majority on the court. Lastly, the Articles of Impeachment expressly state that the full house must first vote in favor of an impeachment inquiry before one can begin. Pelosi has usurped the law. Many Democrat congressmen represent districts that President Trump won by an overwhelming majority. They’re up for re-election in 2020. It is obvious why Pelosi is skirting the law. I’m not an attorney and I don’t play one on TV. But I’m hoping the President’s attorneys, Giuliani and Sekulow, have a plan that I just can’t see. All... just in my humble opinion. God bless America!

    Boy oh boy. Those dirty Democrats will stop at nothing to unseat a duly elected president. We the people know exactly what they’re up to, despite what we’re being fed by the media. We know how close Barr and Durham are getting to exposing all the dirty politics that occurred in the 2016 election. In spite of all the conniving, Hillary still lost. And I thank God every day for that.

    I"m usually a very intense, easy to rile person and when I hear the name Obama I think treasonous traitor and wonder why he would want to destroy his country. But, the real reason I am writing is to wonder what it takes to be a follower of the new Communist party. What information are the followers missing? Have they no understanding of history? Have they ever heard of Stalin, Marx, Lenin? How can people raised in America be so ill informed, so brainwashed? It's like a herd of lemmings heading for the cliff. Thanks to our Communist infiltrated education system and media we are in deep S*&T.

    For decades, international families and conglomerates have been "running" the business of the United States. We're a "cash cow" for these trillion-dollar and billion-dollar "investors". And they ARRANGE the outcomes of political elections, businesses that succeed and fail, the migration of peoples from one nation to another, and the moral and ethical climate of nations. They "fix" the big games where money is concerned: arms sales, drug trafficking, sex and slave commerce. They are "above the law", enjoying the super good life while tucked away in their estates, attending a third of the wonderful parties and soiree's to which they are prayerfully "invited" by messenger. Outside they are SO BEAUTIFUL, but inside they are the "whitened sepulchres" of which Jesus spoke. The McCabes, Lynches and Comeys are their minions, and will fall. Hillary will pass away, one way or another. But we prayed for morality and a stop to the evil governmental slavery for which we had voted or been forced to endure for SO LONG. God Bless America! God SAVE President Trump. Pray HARD.

    WHEN ATE THE REPUBLICANS GOING TO STAND UP FOR TRUMP? DIMS MAKING THEM LOOK VERY DISORGANIZED AND WEAK. I AM VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED IN REPUBLICAN SENATORS. IF THEY DO NOT BAND TOGETHER, 2020 MAY WELL BE LOST IN HOUSE AND SENATE EVEN IF TRUMP GETS SECOND TERM!!!

    Barr is getting too close for comfort! Theresa May was probably in on it from Britain as well. John, “
    I am a traitor”, Kerry is in on it as well. The current hit on Trump was an inside orchestrated job. Schiff is in on it. Sadly I think Atkinson may be as well. An attorney who thinks second hand accusations are relevant when in a COURT of LAW they would NOT be? Either he is an IDIOT, doubtful, PARTISAN, maybe, or CORRUPT. The BEST thing Trump should do, and can, is to COMPLETELY DISMANTLE the CIA and the FBI. Truman in 1963 REGRETTED implementing the CIA because of corruption.

    When are these fools going to do their job. They haven’t done anything for three years but walk around with their heads up in the clouds. They are upset that killary Clinton didn’t win. It is time to do your jobs. That you are paid to do
