Every since the Mueller Report came out, Democrats have been questioning the integrity of Attorney General William Barr.
Of course, his defense of Donald Trump makes Barr public enemy number 2, just under the President, in the land of leftism.
Sadly, Democrats are running a scheme that is completely transparent. The plan? To keep this Russian nonsense alive long enough to hinder the 2020 election. Of course, liberals would be appalled if we started investigating them for their plans to derail the Trump campaign with lies and deceit.
Honestly, the Mueller Report should have put the 2016 campaign to bed. No collusion, no obstruction. That’s the answer, plain and simple. But if Democrats accept this, they’re fresh out of leverage against the President.
Thus, the only strategy leftists can implore is to investigate the investigation, and pretend Mueller didn’t tell the whole story. Frankly, Barr’s had enough.
Fox News explains:
“We have to stop using the criminal justice process as a political weapon,” Barr said during a back-and-forth with Connecticut Democratic Sen. Dick Blumenthal.
The exchange was one of several heated moments during Barr’s first hearing — before the Senate Judiciary Committee — since the release of the Mueller report. The testimony covered everything from Barr’s decision not to pursue an obstruction case against President Trump to process delays in getting a redacted version of Mueller’s report to the public to Mueller’s apparent concerns about how Barr initially relayed his findings to Congress.
The dust-up with Blumenthal came after the senator told Barr “I think history will judge you harshly” and accused him of using his summary of Mueller’s probe to exonerate Trump of obstruction of justice. The senator called Barr the “fall guy for this report.”
“I didn’t exonerate,” Barr replied. “I said that we did not believe that there was sufficient evidence to establish obstruction.”
Barr continued: “The job of the Justice Department is now over… the report is now in the hands of the American people. Everyone can decide for themselves. There’s an election in 18 months – that’s a very democratic process. But we’re out of it.”
The clashes with senators only escalated from there during the final couple hours of the hearing, as partisan tensions flared and Barr’s impatience with the lines of questioning began to show.
We all know Texas Senator Ted Cruz made a name for himself by telling it like it is. And he hit the nail on the head when he told Barr this is “Kavanaugh-level” slander from the Democrats after Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono accused Barr of lying to Congress. She even suggested Bar should resign.
“Mr. Barr, now the American people know that you are no different from Rudy Giuliani or Kellyanne Conway or any of other people who sacrifice their once decent reputation for the grifter and liar who sits in the Oval Office,” Hirono said.
Eventually, the Republican chairman of the committee, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, stepped in to cut Hirono off.
“You slandered this man from top to bottom,” Graham told the Hawaii senator.
And the drama didn’t stop there. Liberals requested the notes Barr kept from his conversation with the Dem fixer, Robert Mueller. And Barr let them know how the cow eats the cabbage. There’s no reason Barr needs to turn over his notes. We know what the report says. Period. End of story.
Let’s get to the bottom of this!
We’re constantly forced to say “Mueller found no collusion.” It’s like beating a dead horse. But key Democrats like Corey Booker and Kamala Harris still don’t have a clue, which is evidenced by their participation in the questioning of AG Barr. After the hearing, Harris even took to Twitter to call for Barr’s resignation. Of course, she’s also called for Trump’s head, and she didn’t get that either.
In another dramatic moment, Missouri Republican Sen. Josh Hawley lambasted the anti-Trump text messages between former FBI employees Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, telling Barr, “That’s why we’re sitting here today. An unelected official in this government has open disdain for Trump voters then try to overturn the results of a Democratic election. That’s the story here today.”
Hawley added, “I can’t believe a top official would try to exercise their own prejudices. That’s the real crisis here.”
Barr, meanwhile, told the panel he’s actively looking into the origins of the Russia probe, saying he’s working with FBI Director Chris Wray “to reconstruct what went down.”
If these democRATS were smart, they’d quit while they still can. Once Barr gets to the bottom of how this nonsense started, you can bet a lot more leftists will find themselves in hot water.
