Oh, Hillary…, lying for you is as easy as breathing, isn’t it?

When talking with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, Hillary Clinton said the most important thing she learned from the Mueller report was “the Russians were successful” in sowing “discord and divisiveness.”

First of all, “Crooked Hillary,” you, yourself, did not read one word of the Mueller report, so you actually learned nothing from it.

Then you, “Crooked Hillary,” suggest it was the Russians who were “successful in sowing discord and divisiveness” during the 2016 election, when in all actuality it was you, “Crooked Hillary” and your crooked partners in crime!  You know…, the same people you gave money to so they could give money to Christopher Steele to collude with the Russians and help to fabricate the infamous dossier.  You know…, the real colluders with the Russians…, You, “Crooked Hillary,” the DNC, the company Fusion GPS and Nellie Ohr, the wife of Justice Department official Bruce Ohr.  This is all common knowledge now, except many Americans are not aware of it thanks to the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

The next thing that oozes from “Crooked Hillary’s” mouth is, “China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns?”

“Turnabout,” she hypothetically suggests to MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, “might be fair play.”

Then again it might not.

maddow

You, “Crooked Hillary,” wouldn’t be inciting operatives of the Chinese government to illegally obtain and distribute information about the current President of the United States, would you?

Because if you were, I would consider that a treasonous act and you, “Crooked Hillary,” an accessory to that crime…, another crime…, another crime in a long list of crimes.

According to Bianca Quilantan for Politico, “Hillary Clinton on Wednesday night suggested that if the Justice Department was going to let Russia get away with interfering in the 2016 presidential election, it might be OK if one of the 2020 Democratic candidates enlisted China for help.”

lying hillary 11

Speaking again to Rachel Maddow on her MSNBC show, ‘“Imagine, Rachel, that you had one of the Democratic nominees for 2020 on your show, and that person said, you know, the only other adversary of ours who is anywhere near as good as the Russians is China,’ Clinton told Maddow. ‘So why should Russia have all the fun? And since Russia is clearly backing Republicans, why don’t we ask China to back us?’”

‘“And not only that, China, if you’re listening, why don’t you get Trump’s tax returns?’ Clinton continued. ‘I’m sure our media would richly reward you.’”

lying hillary 2

I’m sure our “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” would reward them too!  Just as long as they don’t come around with dirt on you or the democrats, right!

I’m also sure that China would be more than happy to back the democrats and go back to the Obama days when they were getting away with economic murder all of those one-sided trade deals.

“Clinton said the No. 1 thing she learned from reading special counsel Robert Mueller’s partially redacted report (which she didn’t read) was that Russia conducted a “sweeping and systemic interference” in the 2016 election and has not been held accountable. And that she worries there is reason to believe Russia will do it again.”

Extra!  Extra!  Read all about it!  Russia has been trying to interfere, and interfering, in our elections for like the last 70 years!  This is nothing new and I’m sure they won’t quit trying now.

Mrs. Clinton, “Crooked Hillary,” is just one giant and continuous misinformation machine.  In other words, lies roll off of her tongue like water flows over a waterfall.

“When asked about Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee earlier Wednesday, Clinton said that ‘calling for his resignation makes perfect sense.’”

‘“I think that the Democrats on the committee did a good job today in exposing that he is the president’s defense lawyer,’ Clinton said. ‘He is not the attorney general of the United States in the way that he has conducted himself.’ Clinton added that House Democrats ‘have every reason to’ find Barr in contempt.”

lying hillary 13

Standing up for the truth, the law and common sense does not make you “the President’s defense lawyer,” Hillary.

You, “Crooked Hillary,” feel that “calling for his [Attorney General Barr’s] resignation makes perfect sense.”  Oh, you mean like when Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, met privately with your husband, on a plane, sitting on the tarmac, in the middle of their investigation of you?  Is that what you mean?

‘“But this is part of their [“their” meaning the whole right-wing conspiracy thing I guess] whole technique to divert attention from what the real story is,’ Clinton continued. ‘The real story is the Russians interfered in our election. And Trump committed obstruction of justice. That’s the real story.’”

Wrong again “liar, liar, pants on fire!”  “The real story” is that you and your partners in crime fabricated the fairy tale dossier and used it as a basis for attempting to frame President Trump, and his people, with colluding with the Russians…, which is exactly what you and your friends did.

That’s “the real story.”

Hillary Clinton says, “Anyone other than Trump would have been indicted for obstruction.”

No.

Oh no you didn’t!

Please tell me that those words did not come out of your lying, corrupt pie hole, Mrs. Clinton!

hillary summit 1

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, “These democrats just have NO shame.”

They will lie straight to your face and smile while they’re doing it.

Which she did while speaking at the TIME 100 Summit, in New York, Tuesday, April 23, 2019.

According to Alex Pappas for Fox News, “Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she believes Donald Trump would have been indicted in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe if he weren’t president, though stopped short of calling for his impeachment.”

“Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president in 2016, argued during a Q&A session in New York that Mueller’s report ‘could not be clearer’ in making the case Trump tried to obstruct the Russia investigation — even though Mueller did not come to an explicit conclusion on that question.”

Well, I have to agree with you there Hillary.  It “could not be any clearer,” and it’s as clear as mud!

And again…, BELIEVE ME…, if Robert Mueller could have charged President Trump with ANYTHING…, and I mean ANYTHING…, he would have.

She continues by saying, ‘“I think there’s enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted, but because of the rule in the Justice Department that you can’t indict a sitting president, the whole matter of obstruction was very directly sent to the Congress.’”

I guess Hillary should know.  She is the queen of obstructing justice after all.

hillary summit 2

“Clinton, who was defeated by Trump in the election, said it’s too early to call for Trump’s impeachment.  She said she supports Congress investigating Mueller’s findings ‘based on evidence’ and without a ‘preordained conclusion.’”

We all know democrats never let a little thing like “evidence” get in the way of anything they want to promote.

And a “Preordained conclusion?”

Oh…, you mean like how you were preordained to win the democrat presidential nomination?  And then you and the DNC submarined poor old Bernie Sanders and all of his supporters?

Is that the kind of “preordained conclusion you’re referring to?”

Robert Mueller’s investigation was all backwards and illegitimate.  It was an investigation that was initiated based on a fabricated and a disingenuous document, and paid for by Hillary and the DNC no less.  It was also an investigation that knew what result it wanted before any evidence or proof of a crime was established.

Investigating people in America just for the sake of investigating them is not legal in America.  Typically we have to have an established reason, with supporting evidence, for doing so.

‘“I’m really of the mind that the Mueller report is part of the beginning,’ Clinton said. ‘It’s not the end.’”

Again, I find myself agreeing with Mrs. Clinton’s words but not the nature of her beliefs.

I also believe it is the “beginning,” but the beginning of getting to the bottom of who was behind the initiation of this “witch hunt” of an investigation.

I believe it is the “beginning,” but the beginning of getting to the bottom of who authorized the spying on of a US citizen and an opposition’s campaign.

I believe it is the “beginning,” but the beginning of getting to the bottom of who felt they could take the presidential election into their own hands and attempt to overturn the election results.

I believe it may also be the beginning of making Hillary herself pay for her numerous sins throughout the whole process.

I’ll keep you posted.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein isn’t good at much…, except saving his own a$$!

…at least for the moment.

According to Nicole Darrah and John Roberts for Fox News, “Former Arkansas Republican Governor Mike Huckabee says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s critical comments [about] the Russia election interference investigation [and of the Obama administration for their handling of the Russia investigation] is a soft way of saying there was a cover up.”

“Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who frequently found himself in the political crosshairs due to his role in the special counsel’s Russia probe and whose departure has long been expected, submitted his resignation on Monday to President Trump, effective May 11.”

rosenstein 7

“Attorney General William Barr in a statement said Rosenstein served the Justice Department ‘with dedication and distinction.’”

Ugh.  I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

‘“His devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled,’ the statement read. ‘Over the course of his distinguished government career, he has navigated many challenging situations with strength, grace, and good humor.’”

Ahhhhh!  Ok…, that did it…, now I just hurled all over my keyboard!

What is Barr talking about?!

I’m confused.

At times it seems that Attorney General Barr is a pretty “straight shooter,” but then he comes out with this junk regarding Rod Rosenstein, and puts himself back into the “political hack” category.

Let’s just quickly review Mr. Rosenstein’s “distinguished” actions.

Rod Rosenstein was implicated in the FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign in, recently released, declassified memos.

rosenstein 4

Rosenstein was responsible for at least one questionable surveillance warrant (FISA) application, which he signed, knowing full well that information supporting the application was obtained from a partisan anti-Trump dossier funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democrat Party.

According to Saagar Enjeti, a White House Correspondent for The Daily Caller, “President Donald Trump agreed that alleged discussions of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein invoking the 25th Amendment in the days after the firing of former FBI Director James Comey constituted an illegal coup attempt in a Monday morning tweet.”

rosenstein 6

‘“This was an illegal coup attempt on the President of the United States. Dan Bongino on @foxandfriends True! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 18, 2019,’”

“Trump quoted from a Fox and Friends segment by conservative commentator Dan Bongino who reacted to a Sunday night broadcast interview of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on CBSNews’ 60 minutes.”

‘“60 Minutes Moment of the Week: Former FBI acting director McCabe says Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein raised the idea of removing President Trump via the 25th Amendment. https://t.co/wkC4AKxGiC pic.twitter.com/UkOb4QbrZh

— 60 Minutes (@60Minutes) February 18, 2019’”

“McCabe detailed two occasions in which Rosenstein raised the prospect of using the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office and even suggested that two cabinet officials would be willing to involve themselves in the scheme.”

The 25th Amendment allows for the removal of the President of the United States if a majority of his Senate-confirmed cabinet believe he is no longer capable of discharging his duties while in office.

“Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire and talk of the 25th Amendment was first reported by The New York Times in September 2018.”

“McCabe also alleges that Rosenstein suggested in a meeting that he would wear a wire into the Oval Office in meetings with Trump. The former FBI deputy director told ‘60 minutes’ in an interview that he took Rosenstein’s suggestion so seriously that he brought the idea up to FBI lawyers who waved off his suggestion.”

“The original New York Times report of Rosenstein’s discussion of wearing a wire into the Oval Office and invoking the 25th Amendment nearly prompted his ouster in September 2018. Trump, however, appeared to accept Rosenstein’s explanation at that the report was exaggerated or not true, and the deputy attorney general was allowed to keep his job.”

“The president changed his tune on Twitter Monday morning, however, indicating he now believes the reports.”

‘“Wow, so many lies by now disgraced acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe. He was fired for lying, and now his story gets even more deranged. He and Rod Rosenstein, who was hired by Jeff Sessions (another beauty), look like they were planning a very illegal act, and got caught…..

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump)’”

rosenstein 1

Rosenstein also took over the Russia investigation after then AG Jeff Sessions recused himself from the investigation.  It was Rosenstein who later appointed Mueller to his post and got the whole “Russian collusion” and President Trump “witch hunt” rolling.

Quite a “distinctive” and “dedicated” career, huh?

William Barr said “His [Rosenstein’s] devotion to the Department and its professionals is unparalleled…”

I would say that his “devotion” was to “the swamp,” and the rest of his treasonous cohorts…, not the Department of Justice.

On his way out, Rosenstein has even defended Attorney General Bill Barr’s handling of the Mueller report.

Also, “Rosenstein was part of a small group of [Justice] department officials who reviewed the document [the Mueller Report] and helped shape its public release. After Mueller didn’t reach a conclusion on whether Trump had obstructed the investigation, Barr and Rosenstein stepped in and determined the evidence wasn’t enough to support such an allegation.”

“In his resignation letter, Rosenstein thanked Trump ‘for the opportunity to serve; for the courtesy and humor you often display in our personal conversations; and for the goals you set in your inaugural address: patriotism, unity, safety, education, and prosperity, because a nation exists to serve its citizens.’”

Oh, oh…, I’m starting to feel a little sick to my stomach again!

“…because a nation exists to serve its citizens,” huh?

And “swampy” federal employees, like yourself, exist to serve themselves and “the swamp.”

rosenstein 3

Rosenstein’s picture should be in the dictionary next to “slimy swamp monster.”

rosenstein 2

I’m glad to see Rosenstein go for now, but hopefully we’ll see him again in the not too distant future, giving up some his cohorts to again save his slimy, treasonous a$$!

How portions of the liberals’ playbook has evolved AND the recently released Mueller Report!

I would contend that prior to the 1980’s the political playbook for liberals and conservatives was pretty similar.

During the 90’s, Bill and Hillary Clinton changed the “deflect accusations” portion of the liberal playbook to “deny, deny, deny” and “lie, lie, lie.”  They just would not admit to anything…, even if they were caught red-handed.

blaming others 1

Then in the 2000’s, in addition to “deny, deny, deny” and “lie, lie, lie,” the liberals went one step further.  Before they could even be accused of doing something, they would take the initiative and blame the conservatives of doing exactly what they were already doing; thus not only getting themselves off the hook, but giving the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” an excuse to harass and investigate conservatives.

I would say it’s a pretty ingenious strategy, however, this strategy only works when you have a cooperative media.  Having the cooperative media changes the strategy from ingenious to diabolical…, and even treasonous in some cases.

blaming others 2

We have now seen this new strategy employed over and over again.

Most recently we have the cases of the democrats charging President Trump and the republicans of tampering with the election of 2016, Russian collusion, and obstruction of justice…, all of which the democrats were doing, but the complicit media, of course, looked the other way.

The recent completion and subsequent release of Robert Mueller’s report has cleared The President and his people of any election tampering, as well as any type of Russian collusion.

Mueller and his team, in fact, were unable to come up with ANYTHING they could charge The President with.

blaming others 5

If they could’ve you know they would’ve!

So what are we left with?

We’re left with the democrats crying about redactions in the report and more unfounded claims of obstruction of justice.

President Trump wasn’t charged with anything…, so what exactly do they feel he was obstructing…, the proving of his innocence in all of these manufactured matters?

The whole thing would be funny if it wasn’t so sad and pathetic.

blaming others 6

So now we have come full circle, for the first time I believe, regarding a topic(s) put forward by this “preemptive accusal strategy.”

The question remains then…, if your opposition is cleared of those things you accused them of, which you did or are still doing, how do we proceed and what can we expect?

If matters are handled correctly, this could be an epic beat down for the democrats.

Not only would they be held accountable for the wild goose chase of an investigation, but they would then begin to face the music for their own sins in these matter(s).

This has the potential to be an extremely beautiful thing…, especially if President Trump rolls in the 2020 election and regains control of The House of representatives on his coat tails.

The democrats’ sole mission now is to keep the American peoples’ eyes off of the ensuing investigations into democrats and to cover their a$$es by any means possible.

The “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” will of course be doing its best to assist in these matters, but I still have faith that some semblance of justice will be done, and karma will collect its toll.

Okay…, now that Mueller’s phony investigation is over, let’s find out what really happened during the 2016 presidential election!

Don’t you feel sorry for Robert Mueller?

I mean he was trying his hardest to pin something, anything, on President Trump, but he had to deal with tripping over evidence against Hillary Clinton and the rest of “the swamp” at every turn!

It must have made his job quite challenging.

I haven’t read the Mueller Report yet, of course, but I’m willing to bet that over the course of his investigation, he and his motley crew didn’t come across ONE thing that would reflect negatively on Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ or the Obama FBI.

Imagine that!

Let’s wait and see, but if this is the case, and I’m sure it is, this would only further substantiate the fact that Robert Mueller’s “investigation” was a complete farce, and just a “witch hunt” like President Trump claimed all along.

Kimberley Strassel, an editorial board member for The Wall Street Journal agrees.  She says, “Mueller’s investigation is done.  Now dig into the real scandal — missteps of Comey, FBI.”

She has gone on to call for the declassification of all documents related to the Mueller report.

“The American public deserves to get the full picture of the special counsel’s investigation,” she argues.

Ya, it would be nice to see what Mueller chose NOT to investigate, or things he chose to look the other on.  By all means, let’s drag all of this out into the sunlight!

Perhaps, once they realize what they are asking for, the democrats will start singing a different tune about wanting everything associated with the “investigation” released and subpoenaing Mueller to testify about his report.

“Attorney General William Barr has reported to Congress that Special Counsel Robert Mueller has cleared President Trump and his campaign team of claims of conspiring with Russia during the 2016 election.  This is more than an exoneration.  It’s a searing indictment of the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI], as well as a reminder of the need to know the story behind the bureau’s corrosive investigation.”

“Mr. Mueller’s report likely doesn’t put it that way, but it’s the logical conclusion of his no-collusion finding. The FBI unleashed its powers on a candidate for the office of the U.S. presidency, an astonishing first. It did so on the incredible grounds that the campaign had conspired to aid a foreign government. And it used the most aggressive tools in its arsenal—surveillance of U.S. citizens, secret subpoenas of phone records and documents, even human informants.”

“Americans now deserve a full accounting of the missteps of former FBI Director James Comey and his team—in part so that this never happens again.”

“The wreckage is everywhere. The nation has been engulfed in conspiracy theories for years.  A presidency was hemmed in by the threat of a special counsel.  Citizens have gone to jail not for conspiracy [or collusion, or obstruction], but for after-the-fact interactions with Mr. Mueller’s team.  Dozens more have spent enormous amounts of money and time defending their reputations.”

These people were all collateral damage in the effort to bring down President Trump.

“None of this should ever have happened absent highly compelling evidence—from the start—of wrongdoing. Yet from what we know, the FBI operated on the basis of an overheard conversation of third-tier campaign aide George Papadopoulos, as well as a wild “dossier” financed by the rival presidential campaign.  Mr. Mueller’s no-collusion finding amounts to a judgment that there never was any evidence.  The Papadopoulos claim was thin, [and] the dossier a fabrication.”

And what about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court abuses, and all of the downright treasonous actions that can be attributed to the Obama administration, the Obama DOJ and the Obama FBI?

The tide has definitely turned here and we have them on the run!

Now it’s time to dole out some real justice!

LOCK HER UP!

LOCK THEM UP!

LOCK ‘EM ALL UP!

treason

Former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a treasonous weasel among treasonous weasels!

Yes…, former acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a treasonous weasel, and so are all of the rest of his partners in crime from Obama’s DOJ and Obama’s FBI.

All of these vermin in this “swampy” nest of rats should be in jail in my opinion, and they still may end up there.

Catherine Herridge, Chief Intelligence Correspondent for Fox News, reported that, “Former FBI acting Director McCabe says the DOJ discussed removing President Trump under the 25th Amendment.”

Wait…, say what?!

“THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE DISCUSSED REMOVING NEWLY ELECTED PRESIDENT TRUMP FROM OFFICE!”

And no one in the “biased, liberal, fake news media” feels this is worth reporting at all.

If you regularly watch NBC, ABC, MSNBC or CNN you would not be aware of any of this because they all have chosen to ignore it.  Propaganda by omission.

Now take a minute to think about the reporting that would have resulted if the same type of efforts had been directed at former President Obama after he was duly elected.

That is what we call the “biased, liberal, fake news media.”

Michael Goodwin, of the New York Post, added, “McCabe, you see, has reminded us once again that there really is a powerful deep state, and that there has not been a full accounting of rampant FBI misconduct during the presidential campaign of 2016.”

“There is also still too much we don’t know about the role top aides to then-President Barack Obama and higher-ups in the Justice Department played in spying on the Trump campaign and leaks of classified information for partisan purposes.”

“In short, what is arguably the greatest scandal in the history of America remains mostly hidden from the public.  That shroud of secrecy piles one scandal on top of another.”

This was undoubtedly an unprecedented plot to swing an election and later to remove the duly-elected president.

Andy “poor little angel” McCabe is talking because he’s peddling a book and, just like “Leakin’ and Lyin’” James Comey before him.

McCabe then used an interview with CBS’ “Sixty Minutes” to offer up more details of a discussion within the FBI and the DOJ to use the 25th Amendment to remove Trump from office.

According to Michael Goodwin, “McCabe said that the effort took shape immediately after Trump fired Comey in May 2017 and that numerous people were involved, including Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.  Rosenstein, through an aide, denied the account.”

So now we one lying “swamp rat” calling another lying “swamp rat” a liar.

Beautiful.

All of these treasonous rats try to convince us that they were acting in the best interests of our country.  Ya…, that’s what all traitors say.  In actuality, they were acting in their own best interests.

Goodwin continues by saying, “Meanwhile, we do know that Comey and his dirty crew used the unverified Christopher Steele dossier, which was funded by Hillary Clinton’s campaign, to get a secret court warrant to spy on the Trump campaign.  And FBI text messages, along with congressional testimony, confirm that the same agents probing Trump were simultaneously involved in the Clinton e-mail investigation and decided to go easy on her because they thought she would be their next boss.  Recall that Peter Strzok, the top agent in both cases, called the Trump probe an “insurance policy” in the event he won.”

Please tell me…, how are any of these slimy, treasonous, conspirators not in jail, still walking around, and selling books on top of it all?

Alan Dershowitz is an accredited and well-respected American lawyer and academic.  He is a scholar of United States Constitutional law and criminal law, and a noted civil libertarian. Most of his career has been at Harvard Law School where, in 1967, at the age of 28, he became the youngest full professor of law in its history.  He retired from Harvard in 2013, and subsequently became a regular CNN and Fox News contributor and political and legal analyst.

Dershowitz, giving his take on McCabe’s descriptions of Justice Department meetings where he said officials discussed ousting the president, said, “If [McCabe’s comments are] true, it is clearly an attempt at a coup d’état,” Dershowitz said.

“Evoking the 25th Amendment,” Dershowitz added, “would be a fundamental misuse of its original purpose.  It was originally about Woodrow Wilson having a stroke.  It’s about a president being shot and not being able to perform his office.”

So what exactly is in the 25th Amendment that is being referred to?

Let’s take a look.

Sections 3 and 4 from the 25th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America says:

3: Whenever the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that he is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, and until he transmits to them a written declaration to the contrary, such powers and duties shall be discharged by the Vice President as Acting President.

4: Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

The 25th Amendment was added to the Constitution in February of 1967.

Dershowitz added that, “Any justice official who discussed the 25th Amendment in the context of ousting the president has committed a grievous offense against the Constitution,” and that “using the 25th Amendment to circumvent the impeachment process or an election, is a despicable act of unconstitutional power grabbing.”

Mr. Dershowitz is definitely not mincing words here.

Getting back to the “Sixty Minutes” interview, “These were the eight days from Comey’s firing to the point that Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel,” Scott Pelley, the ’60 Minutes’ host said. “And the highest levels of American law enforcement were trying to figure out what to do with the president.” He [McCabe] said people involved were ‘counting noses’ and considering who might agree to the idea [of trying to remove The President].

“I was speaking to the man who had just run for the presidency and won the election for the presidency and who might have done so with the aid of the government of Russia, our most formidable adversary on the world stage. And that was something that troubled me greatly,” McCabe said in one excerpt.

Excuse me Mr. McCabe, but that is just an out and out lie.

You were entirely aware that the “Russian collusion” angle had been completely fabricated, and that was not what “troubled you greatly.”

What “troubled you greatly,” Mr. McCabe, was that President Trump and his administration might actually shine some light on all of the unethical, illegal, and treasonous activities that you and your “swampy” friends had performed and had become accustomed to getting away with.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive! – Sir Walter Scott

andrew-mccabe-to-the-usa-this-traitor-better-29810123

I hope I’m wrong about our next Attorney General…, but I’m pretty sure I’m not.

President Trump has nominated William (Bill) Barr to be the next Attorney General of The United States.

Mr. Barr has been going through his confirmation hearings in The Senate this week, and it appears he will be confirmed.

So, who is this guy?

First off, he’s a lawyer.

From 1973 to 1977, Mr. Barr was employed by the Central Intelligence Agency.

He was then a law clerk to Judge Malcolm Wilkey of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 1977 through 1978.

He served on the domestic policy staff at the Reagan White House from May 3, 1982 to September 5, 1983, with his official title being Deputy Assistant Director for Legal Policy.  He was also in private practice for nine years with the Washington law firm of Shaw, Pittman, Potts & Trowbridge.

In 1989, at the beginning of his administration, President George H. W. Bush appointed Barr to the U.S. Department of Justice as Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Legal Counsel, an office which functions as the legal advisor for the President and executive agencies.

In May 1990, Barr was appointed Deputy Attorney General, the official responsible for day-to-day management of the DOJ.  According to media reports, Barr was generally praised for his professional management of the Department.

During August 1991, when then-Attorney General Richard Thornburgh resigned to campaign for the Senate, Barr was named Acting Attorney General.

President Bush then nominated him to be the next Attorney General, and served in that role from 1991–1993.

Upon leaving the DOJ in 1994, Barr became Executive Vice President and General Counsel of GTE Corporation, where he served for 14 years.

In 2008, when GTE merged with Bell Atlantic to become Verizon Communications, he left that position. While at GTE, from 1997 to 2005 Barr also served on the Board of Visitors of the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg.

In 2009, Barr was briefly of counsel to the firm Kirkland & Ellis.

From 2010 until 2017, he advised corporations on government enforcement matters and regulatory litigation.

He rejoined Kirkland and Ellis in 2017.

So, he has played this game before, and he seems to be considered a “conservative.”

But is that good enough?  Let’s take a closer look.

First of all, the Senate democrats don’t seem to be putting up much of a fuss against Mr. Barr.  That’s the first indication that he may not be what he appears to be.

If Bill Barr is confirmed, he would become Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s supervisor.

Barr has had a “personal relationship” with Robert Mueller for more than 25 years, according to Richard Manning of Fox News.

Also, “Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham revealed that Barr worked with Mueller when Barr previously served as attorney general from 1991 to 1993 under President George H.W. Bush. But on top of that, the two were “best friends” and their wives attended Bible study together.”

Oh…, c’mon!

“When added to the knowledge that Mueller had attended the weddings of Barr’s children, it is clear that Barr’s relationship with the special counsel is extremely close.”

Okay, we just jumped from DEFCON 1 to DEFCON 5!

I may be mistaken, but wouldn’t Barr’s personal relationship with Robert Mueller be reason enough for him to end up recusing himself from the whole situation like Jeff Sessions did?

Just sayin’.

Richard Manning then added, “Hopefully, President Trump has found the honest man who not only can shine a light on the corruption within the Justice Department but also has the guts and the legal gravitas to do something about it, becoming the swamp’s worse nightmare.”

“With that background and perspective, Barr could be a brilliant choice to run the Justice Department. With public confidence in the Justice Department and FBI at the bottom of the barrel, Barr’s intimate knowledge of the inner workings of the department would allow him to begin the cleanup that is desperately needed.”

Then again, he may be just another “swamp monster” in disguise.

It is common knowledge now that Robert Mueller knowingly used Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants based on Democratic research that has since been called by the then-FBI Director, James Comey, “salacious and unverified” as the foundation its Russia probe.

And the Justice Department was so committed to their partisan, treasonous, mission that officials deliberately turned a blind eye to very real concerns about the relationship of both former President Barack Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, with both Russia and Hillary Clinton’s apparent violations of laws related to handling classified documents.

“As Attorney General, will Barr excuse his old friend Mueller and former Justice Department colleagues, giving them a pass?” Richard Manning asks.

I’m pretty sure the answer to that question is a big “yes.”

“Or hopefully, President Trump has found the honest man who not only can shine a light on the corruption within the Justice Department but also has the guts and the legal gravitas to do something about it, becoming ‘he swamp’s’ worse nightmare.”

I hope I am wrong and that this is the case, Mr. Manning, but history would suggest that I am not wrong, and that not much will change, and that all of these “swamp rats” will remain above the law.

I’ll keep you posted.
