“We have to stop using the criminal-justice process as a political weapon,”
— Attorney General William Barr
Barr’s enemies are the Democrats and their media dogs. They hate William Barr but not for all the reasons they’re touting as why he should resign or be prosecuted or be drawn and quartered. They fear he will expose them for the political criminals they are. They fear he will uncover what they did to keep the American people in a frenzy for 2 years over nothing. The not only fear it becoming known that they perpetrated on America one of the biggest political hoaxes of all time, they fear all the dirt that Barr uncovers will cost them the election in 2020.
Liberals have always been vicious tyrants willing to do anything necessary to get what they want, but the Russia Hoax was their best attempt ever and it failed. Now many powerful people face a strong probability of being made to look about the same as UK Tories, which Mark Steyn describes as, “devious, duplicitous, slimy, oleaginous, frankly repellent and utterly treacherous.”
Actually, they’re worse than the Tories who are mainly incompetent and stupid. The beltway Dems and their media lap dogs are willing to engage in outright criminality if necessary to achieve their political goals. The upper management of the FBI, CIA and the U.S. Justice Department under Loretta Lynch and Barack Obama were engaged in serious law breaking that would put less powerful people in prison.
Democrats have a long record of success in getting rid of anyone who threatens their hegemony. Unlike the Mafia or the Russians, they don’t resort to murder, at least not yet. There’s been no need for that. Name calling and smear tactics have always worked very well, until now. The mark, someone who might get in the way, willingly surrenders and goes quietly into the night.
Neither President Trump nor Attorney General Barr are so easily scared off. Trump fights back at whoever attacks him; Barr won’t surrender to the howling crowd in his quest to uphold the rule of law. Think of that, an inside the beltway guy who refuses to wilt and wither away. A real man who stands up to the slime boats.
Mr. Barr made real news in that Senate hearing, and while the press didn’t notice, Democrats did. The attorney general said he’d already assigned people at the Justice Department to assist his investigation of the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. He said his review would be far-reaching—that he was obtaining details from congressional investigations, from the ongoing probe by the department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, and even from Mr. Mueller’s work. Mr. Barr said the investigation wouldn’t focus only on the fall 2016 justifications for secret surveillance warrants against Trump team members but would go back months earlier.
He also said he’d focus on the infamous “dossier” concocted by opposition-research firm Fusion GPS and British former spy Christopher Steele, on which the FBI relied so heavily in its probe. Mr. Barr acknowledged his concern that the dossier itself could be Russian disinformation, a possibility he described as not “entirely speculative.” He also revealed that the department has “multiple criminal leak investigations under way” into the disclosure of classified details about the Trump-Russia investigation.
Do not underestimate how many powerful people in Washington have something to lose from Mr. Barr’s probe. Among them: Former and current leaders of the law-enforcement and intelligence communities. The Democratic Party pooh-bahs who paid a foreign national (Mr. Steele) to collect information from Russians and deliver it to the FBI. The government officials who misused their positions to target a presidential campaign. The leakers. The media. More than reputations are at risk. Revelations could lead to lawsuits, formal disciplinary actions, lost jobs, even criminal prosecution.
The attacks on Mr. Barr are first and foremost an effort to force him out, to prevent this information from coming to light until Democrats can retake the White House in 2020. As a fallback, the coordinated campaign works as a pre-emptive smear, diminishing the credibility of his ultimate findings by priming the public to view him as a partisan.
It gives pleasure to see the Democrats and their corrupt media actually shaking in fear of exposure rather than celebrating yet another victory at hounding their enemy to give up and go away.
Democrats are little more than a party of resentment making demands for power under the guise of compassion. They really don’t care about anything or anybody. They don’t hold dear anything but their power.
