TREASON!

With all of the unbelievable evidence being unearthed as a result of the General Flynn debacle, and the release of previously suppressed depositions regarding Russian Collusion investigations, and the illegal FISA warrant applications, and the coordinated coup attempt by numerous democrats and numerous democrat “deep state” scum, assisted by their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda fake news media…, there is no longer ANY question about their TREASONOUS behavior.

ahomage 20

And make no mistake about it…, we are definitely talking about TREASON against The United States of America and its citizens.

TREASON is defined as follows: “In law, treason is criminal disloyalty, typically to the state. It is a crime that covers some of the more extreme acts against one’s nation or sovereign. This usually includes things such as participating in a war against one’s native country, attempting to overthrow its government, spying on its military, its diplomats, or its secret services for a hostile and foreign power, or attempting to kill its head of state. A person who commits treason is known in law as a traitor.”

Furthermore, according to 18 U.S. Code § 2381 regarding Treason: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

I, personally, would be just fine seeing these traitors walked out in front of a firing squad and shot.  That punishment may seem a bit extreme, but consider the crime(s).

Their actions have gone WAY beyond any kind of political gamesmanship.

Their actions had the intention of removing a duly elected president of These United States by ANY means necessary.  Illegal means, fraudulent means, unconstitutional means, or any other kind of dubious means.

Yes…, their actions went WAY beyond any kind of political gamesmanship.  These democrats and “deep state” democrats clearly, unmistakingly, and unapologetically, crossed the line into the disgraceful world of HIGH TREASON and TRAITOROUS behavior.

I pray that they all face justice and pay dearly for their crimes.

Here is an homage of memes I have put together regarding this collection of treasonous vermin.

The FBI and DOJ “chickens” are coming home to roost.

aflynn

Yes folks…, we’ve all heard of a chicken coop.  What we have here is a chicken coup!

A “coup d’état” that is!

aflynn 5

I have written many blogs dealing with “the swamp” and “the deep state…,” but the extent of this unholy cabal, as I am coming to understand it, is far worse than I could have ever imagined.

More concerning is the fact that “the deep state” isn’t all that deep, or hidden.  It turns out “the deep state” is really those bureaucrats, and it’s the majority of them, aligned with the democrat party.  That’s all.

aflynn 20

The FBI is full of these treasonous rats.

So is the DOJ.

So is the whole, federal, bureaucratic mess.

It’s absolutely disgusting.

aflynn 23

The process of “draining the swamp” is no small task.

aflynn 16

We witnessed a long parade of “swamp rats” trotted out during the fraudulent impeachment circus.

People often wonder how the German people capitulated to the horrible whims of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Well, here you go.

First you have to assemble a group of like-minded people to help you carry out your plans and help to steer the corrupt “ship of state.”

These directors make and enforce “the rules.”  Their followers are “the tools” and the rest are “the fools.”

For the Nazi Party it was people like Heinrich Himmler (SS Commander), Hermann Göring (Hitler’s righthand man and chosen successor), Joseph Goebbels (News media propaganda Minister), Martin Bormann (Hitler’s Chief of Staff), and the list goes on.

For today’s Democrat Party, those people would equate to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, James Comey, James Brennan, James Clapper, Eric Holder, Susan Rice, Andrew McCabe, Christopher Wray, Rod Rosenstein, Peter Strzok, et al.

aflynn 19

If you don’t go along with their way of thinking, you are attacked by the media and labeled a traitor, a racist, a sexist, an idiot, etc.

aflynn 27

You may then be harassed by an arm of “their government” and potentially framed, ruined financially by “their government,” and even possibly imprisoned, ala exactly what has happened to General Flynn, along with many others in the democrats’ attempt to take down President Trump.

aflynn 8

According to Charles Creitz of Fox News, “Sean Hannity opened Wednesday’s edition of [his nightly show] ‘Hannity’ by declaring that former National Security Adviser [General] Michael Flynn was ‘unfairly and unjustly targeted by deep state bureaucrats’ after a bombshell [collection] of documents was unsealed in the case.”

My first questions would be why were these documents sealed and who sealed them in the first place?

Who had access to them?

Who had access to them, and undoubtedly knew they exonerated General Flynn, and did nothing?

Who had access to them, and undoubtedly knew they exonerated General Flynn. while unmasking the FBI and the DOJ as renegade and treasonous’ “deep state” entities, and did nothing?

“The Justice Department turned over the documents just this week, even though a February 2018 standing order in the case from United States District Court for the District of Columbia Emmet Sullivan required the government to turn over any exculpatory materials in its possession that pertained to Flynn. Fox News is told even more exculpatory documents are forthcoming, as Attorney General Bill Barr continues to oversee the DOJ’s investigation into the handling of the Flynn case,” according to Gregg Re.

What was the DOJ and William Barr waiting for? That standing order to turn over documents dates back over two years ago!

Two years ago!

I would expect this type of indifference regarding the law from the Clintons…, but The Department of Justice?!

aflynn 18

That’s why the jury is still currently out on Attorney General William and his underlings.

We’ll see about him and his quite shortly, and what their true colors are.

Our current FBI Director Christopher Wray is another story, however.

There can be no doubt that Christopher Wray has played a part in the effort to cover-up all of the FBI’s treasonous activities…, thus making him a treasonous co-conspirator in all of this.

aflynn 3

‘“Corrupt agents from Jim Comey’s FBI were discussing strategies on how to set General Flynn up on what we call a perjury trap,’ Hannity said, later adding, ‘truth be told, it was an ambush. It was an illegal, abuse of power, corrupt ambush.’”

aflynn 7

‘“According to one handwritten note, an unnamed agent asked, “Well, what is our goal here? … Is it truth, admission or to get him to lie?” To get him to lie, is that our goal? So we can prosecute him or get him fired? Is that the FBI’s role?’ the host continued.”

Gregg Re of Fox News reports that, “The handwritten notes — written by the FBI’s former head of counterintelligence Bill Priestap after a meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, Fox News is told — further suggested that agents planned in the alternative to get Flynn ‘to admit to breaking the Logan Act’ when he spoke to then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition period.”

aflynn 4

“The handwritten notes are devastating evidence of an effort to disregard all standing protocols and rules, Sidney Powell said.”

“Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley called the document’s implications ‘chilling.’”

Charles Creitz continues, ‘“Ultimately that perjury trap was not a success,’ Hannity went on. ‘Agents saw no indication at all that the national security adviser was lying. They didn’t believe he was lying. They said they didn’t believe he was lying.’”

“Nevertheless, the host claimed, then-FBI Director James Comey tried to ‘exploit the chaos’ inside the then-transitioning Trump White House team to get to Flynn, which Hannity added was something Comey would never do to Barack Obama or George W. Bush.”

“Hannity went on to claim that Comey, thus emboldened, ‘turned the screws’ on Flynn by threatening to lock him up and then threatening to prosecute his son, Michael Flynn, Jr.”

‘“They were hell-bent on punishing anyone and everyone inside the Trump administration,’ he said.”

Former President Barack Obama’s name rarely surfaces in all of these discussions about treason and crimes at the highest levels, but his name should be raised and he should be held accountable as well.

Obama

aflynn 13

aflynn 12

aflynn 28

Gregg Re reminds us that, “Former President Obama personally had warned the Trump administration against hiring Flynn, and made clear he was ‘not a fan,’ according to multiple officials. Obama fired Flynn as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2014.”

So, President Obama told President Trump he wasn’t “a fan” of General Flynn, huh?

No wonder why President Trump brought Flynn on board!

“One of Flynn’s interviewing agents was Peter Strzok, who has since been fired from the bureau after his anti-Trump text messages [with Lisa Page] came to light.”

aflynn 22

“Flynn has sought to withdraw his guilty plea and has been seeking exoneration, saying the FBI engaged in ‘egregious misconduct.’ Flynn, who has said more recently that he did not lie to the FBI, pleaded guilty in late 2017 as mounting legal fees pushed him to sell his home.”

“Flynn has since obtained new counsel — and his old attorneys, it emerged this week, then failed to turn over thousands of documents to his new lawyer, Sidney Powell. Powell has maintained that Flynn’s old lawyers at Covington & Burling had conflicts of interest and were otherwise ineffective, including by not focusing on Strzok’s evident bias.”

Flynn’s “old attorneys,” Covington and Burling LLP, were obviously wolves in sheep’s clothing, as far as Flynn’s defense was concerned.  With “friends” like that, who needs enemies?  Covington and Burling LLP were undoubtedly deep state “tools” in this case, and they should be disbarred, honestly.

Sara Carter also brought to light that, “Last week, another batch of documents withheld by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team on Flynn was turned over to his defense that allegedly reveals that the retired three-star general did not commit any crimes, as suggested by Department of Justice prosecutors.”

Well, there’s NO doubt that Mueller and his team are another collection of “tools.”

‘“It’s just absolutely appalling what these agents, and then special counsel operatives, did to General Flynn,’ Powell told Fox News’ ‘Hannity’ on Wednesday night. ‘It’s abuse of their authority at every turn.’”

“[Andrew] McCabe, who has admitted to lying to FBI investigators in a leak investigation, was fired for multiple violations of the FBI’s ethics code.”

“He has not faced any criminal charges.”

Next time you’re interviewed by the FBI, try lying to them and sees what happens to you.

“The Flynn revelations come as the Justice Department separately has revealed that the FBI’s investigation into former Trump aide Carter Page was riddled with fatal errors — and even featured an ex-FBI attorney deliberately doctoring an email from the CIA to make it seem as though Page’s Russian contacts were nefarious.”

“In fact, Carter Page was an informant to the CIA about those contacts — a key detail the FBI omitted when it told the surveillance court about Page’s overseas trips.”

“For his part, after years of legal setbacks and sustained attacks on his patriotism, Flynn took a moment to savor the day’s news on social media. He tweeted a video late Wednesday showing a slow pan to a waving American flag, with no audio but the wind.”

In case you’re not really too familiar with General Flynn…, here’s a little bit about him.

aflynn 28

Michael Flynn was born December 24, 1958, on Christmas Eve!  He is a retired United States Army Lieutenant General (3 star general) who was briefly the National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump.

General Flynn’s military career included a key role in shaping U.S. counter-terrorism strategy and dismantling insurgent networks in Afghanistan and Iraq.  He served as the 18th Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, serving from July 2012 until his retirement from the military in August 2014. He became a senior advisor to Trump during his presidential campaign and served as the National Security Advisor from January 23 to February 13, 2017.

General Flynn was preceded as the National Security Advisor by the ever “swampy” Susan “I never met a lie too big to tell” Rice.

Flynn resigned after information surfaced that he had [allegedly] misled the FBI and Vice President Mike Pence about the nature and content of his communications with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak.

Flynn was commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant in military intelligence in 1981. His military assignments included multiple tours at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, with the 82nd Airborne Division and Joint Special Operations Command. He also served with the 25th Infantry Division in Hawaii, at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana, and the Army Intelligence Center at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.

Flynn served as the director of intelligence at the Joint Task Force in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom) and the Iraq War (Operation Iraqi Freedom).

General Flynn was asked in February 2016 to serve as an adviser to the Trump campaign.

As one of the keynote speakers during the first night of the 2016 Republican National Convention, Flynn gave what the Los Angeles Times described as a “fiery” speech, in which he stated: “We are tired of Obama’s empty speeches and his misguided rhetoric. This has caused the world to have no respect for America’s word, nor does it fear our might.” He accused Obama of enabling the Islamic State at the time.  Flynn went on to criticize political correctness and joined the crowd in a chant of “U-S-A! U-S-A!”

During the speech, Flynn launched a blistering attack on Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. He led the crowd in chants of “Lock her up!”  He called for Clinton to withdraw from the race, saying that “if I did a tenth of what she did, I’d be in jail today.” He repeated in subsequent interviews that she should be “locked up.”

aflynn 11

The Washington Post has predictably come to “the swamp’s” defense and declared, “No, Michael Flynn wasn’t ‘set up,’” in an opinion piece by Randall D. Eliason.

aflynn1a

And who is Randall Eliason?

According to his bio at American University, in Washington D.C., where he is currently an adjunct professor, Eliason spent over 20 years as an Assistant United States Attorney and as a Chief of that section, for the District of Columbia.

Interestingly enough, Eliason is the recipient of numerous awards and commendations from the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Hmmm.

He is also a frequent media commentator on PBS, NBC, NPR, CNN and MSNBC.

Can anyone say “liberal propaganda, fake news?”

Basically, Eliason can be classified as “a tool.”

So, what’s the bottom line here?

The bottom line here is that the Obama administration, the FBI and the DOJ took the law into their own hands in an attempt to break General Flynn as a part of their effort to undo the 2016 election and Donald Trump’s presidency.

Like I said before…, the absolute bottom line here is treason against The United States of America and the American people…, and if nobody goes to jail for any of this, then “the deep state” are really the ones running the show, and our country is in serious trouble.

Sometimes I get the impression that Attorney General William Barr is really competent, but then he opens his mouth and ruins it all!

According to Brooke Singman of Fox News, “AG Barr says Jeffrey Epstein death was result of ‘perfect storm of screw ups.’”

aag 4

“Barr, during an interview with the Associated Press late Thursday, said that his concerns about Epstein’s death were prompted by numerous irregularities at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan where he was being held.”

You don’t say?

Yes, Mr. Barr, it was a “perfect storm of screw ups.”  The only difference between us is I believe it was an orchestrated storm, and you apparently believe that, “Aw shucks, isn’t it just amazing how all of these things just happened at the wrong time?”

I get the feeling you want us to assume you can be that gullible, but in reality we know you’re just another screwed-up cog in the machine protecting the elite, the wealthy and the powerful.

aag 3

“In August, following Epstein’s death, Barr vowed a comprehensive probe by the FBI and Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, amid disturbing revelations from lawyers and others who said failings at the prison had been ignored for years. Now, months into an investigation, Barr says federal investigators have realized there were a ‘series’ of mistakes made that gave Epstein the chance to take his own life.”

aag 7

“Barr vowed a comprehensive probe!”

Not just a probe, but a “comprehensive” probe.

Shouldn’t all probes be “comprehensive?”

Just sayin’.

How many of these probes and investigations have been launched?

All they end up being are exhaustive wastes of time that just wither and die out over time, without anyone being held accountable.

So, they accomplish exactly what they are intended to accomplish.

aag 2

‘“I can understand people who immediately, whose minds went to sort of the worst-case scenario because it was a perfect storm of screw-ups,’ Barr said.”

Of course you “can understand,” Mr. Barr, because the truth here IS the worst case scenario, depending on where you stand, and you know it!

aag 6

“Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York City in August. Life-saving measures were initiated immediately by staff.”

Meaning they made damn sure he was dead this time!

“He was then transported to New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival, officials said at the time.”

The actual declaration of death is important, as this is what triggers the compensation for a job well done!

“Immediately following his death, the New York City medical examiner ruled that the convicted sex offender took his own life, but questions were raised as to how the wealthy financier could have killed himself while in a high-security facility just two weeks after being placed on suicide watch.”

Oh, yes…, I’m sure the New York City medical examiner couldn’t get that ruling out of his mouth fast enough in order to complete his end of the bargain.

And, yes…, how could Epstein “have killed himself while in a high-security facility just two weeks after being placed on suicide watch?”

aag 8

Just let me say…, with complete confidence…, if Jeffrey Epstein were willing to testify he heard President Trump trying to bribe the president of Ukraine, he would still be alive today, and the only way he would possibly die in custody would be if a nuclear bomb was dropped on the correctional center.

“Meanwhile, this week, during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, the director of the Bureau of Prisons, Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, who described Epstein’s death as a ‘black eye on the entire Bureau of Prisons,’ testified that FBI investigators probing Epstein’s death are looking into whether a ‘criminal enterprise’ may have played a role.”

Isn’t that nice?  Another layer of denial can never hurt.

And a “black eye” is better that “lights out!”

“Meanwhile, Barr, on Thursday, also sought to tamp down the conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein’s death, with many people questioning whether Epstein really took his own life.”

By all means Mr. Barr, with everything going on in this country right now, make sure you “tamp down the conspiracy theories surrounding Epstein’s, a disgusting pedophile’s, death!”

What?

anyc 9

What?

“Barr told the Associated Press that the evidence proves that his death was, in fact, by suicide, adding that he personally reviewed security footage that confirmed that no one entered the area where Epstein was housed the night he died.”

I thought they said the camera(s) on Epstein’s cell were off or turned away from the cell?

If nobody witnessed his “suicide” and there is no video of his cell showing him committing suicide, then there is no evidence that proves “in fact” that he killed himself.

It really gets annoying realizing how stupid these people think we all are.

aag 5

“Epstein was placed on suicide watch on July 23 after he was found on his cell floor with bruises on his neck, but was taken off the heightened watch about a week before his death on August 10, meaning he was less closely monitored, but still supposed to be checked on every 30 minutes.”

Ya…, that makes sense…, to take someone off of the heightened suicide watch right after they had just attempted “suicide.”

This too was most probably a botched “involuntary suicide” attempt.

“Epstein was also required to have a cellmate, but was left with none after his cellmate was transferred out of the MCC on August 9—a day before his death.”

Transferred a day before his death?  You don’t say.

Well now…, that is a real coincidence, isn’t it?

‘“I think it was important to have a roommate in there with him and we’re looking into why that wasn’t done, and I think every indication is that was a screw-up,’ Barr said. ‘The systems to assure that was done were not followed.’”

Again…, just let me say…, with COMPLETE confidence…, if Jeffrey Epstein were willing to testify he heard President Trump trying to bribe the president of Ukraine, he would still be alive today, and the only way he would possibly die would be if a nuclear bomb was dropped on the correctional center.

aag 1

“Epstein’s death ended the possibility of a trial that would have involved prominent figures and sparked widespread anger that he wouldn’t have to answer for sexual abuse allegations of minors. But even after his death, federal prosecutors in New York are continuing to investigate the allegations against him.”

Only to insure that none of these allegations pose any further threat to any of those “prominent figures.”

aag 10

“In July, Epstein was charged with sex trafficking and conspiracy during the early 2000s. Epstein pleaded not guilty in federal court. Epstein allegedly created and maintained a ‘vast network’ and operation from 2002 ‘up to and including’ at least 2005 that enabled him to ‘sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls’ in addition to paying victims to recruit other underage girls.”

“Prosecutors also alleged that Epstein ‘worked and conspired with others, including employees and associates’ who helped facilitate his conduct by contacting victims and scheduling their sexual encounters with the 66-year-old at his mansions in New York City and Palm Beach, Fla.”

You forgot to mention those “prominent figures.”  I’m sure it was an honest mistake.

“Victims would be paid hundreds of dollars in cash by either Epstein or one of his associates or employees, according to prosecutors. The 66-year-old also allegedly ‘incentivized his victims’ to become recruiters by paying victim-recruiters hundreds of dollars for each girl brought to him.”

“Epstein was once friends with former President Bill Clinton, President Trump and Britain’s Prince Andrew (birds of a feather flock together), who, amid allegations, this week revealed that he asked Queen Elizabeth if he could ‘step back’ from his public duties.”

A wise move Prince.  It would behoove you to fly under the radar for a while.

“Slick Willie,” of course, doesn’t have those concerns, as the fake news media here is willing to look the other way and ignore his sins.

“Documents unsealed in the case against Epstein, the day before he died, revealed that Virginia Roberts Giuffre, a key witness, claimed that Epstein forced her to have sex with powerful men, including former Sen. George Mitchell and former New Mexico Governor and Clinton cabinet official Bill Richardson.”

“Both Mitchell and Richardson have denied the allegations.”

You don’t say?

“Barr said the Justice Department is still investigating the circumstances that led to his death.”

Oh, yes…, they’re just investigating so hard you wouldn’t believe it!

‘“They are definitely pushing things along,’ Barr said. ‘I’ll just say there is good progress being made, and I’m hopeful in a relatively short time there will be tangible results.’”

aag 9

I’m sorry Mr. Barr, but that there is just is a lie, sir. You’re not hoping for “tangible results…,” you’re hoping that most people will be willing to buy your eventual line of BS.

The “cleaning-up” of “the swamp,” “the establishment,” “the privileged,” may be too tall of an order to expect President Trump to accomplish.  In fact, I’m sure it is.  In truth, he really doesn’t have many allies in this endeavor, and he gets ambushed and sold out at every turn.

All we can really hope to expect is his best continued effort.

ANY clean-up efforts you can provide are more than we could expect from anyone else in your position.

Thank you, Mr. President.

Democrat House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerrold “no nads” Nadler says we are now in a “constitutional crisis!”

Another one?

Perhaps if you took the time to actually read The Constitution, Mr. Nadler, and refer to the law…, you’d see there is no “crisis.”  Although we know that democrats never let facts get in their way!

The dems have become enamored with the term “manufactured crisis.”  Now this situation is what I would have to call the appropriate time to use the term “manufactured crisis”…, and the democrats are the architects of “the crisis.”

nadler 5

New York Congressional Representative, and House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Jerrold “no nads” Nadler, who once called Obama’s first Attorney General, Eric Holder’s contempt vote “shameful,” is now pushing for a like contempt vote against President Trump’s AG, William Barr.

Democrat hypocrisy here…, democrat hypocrisy there…, democrat hypocrisy everywhere!

nadler 4

Adam Shaw for Fox News reports that, “House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., led the charge Wednesday to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt of Congress for not handing over documents related to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe — declaring the move necessary as the country enters a ‘constitutional crisis.’”

nadler 7

Never mind that this is not something the Attorney General is required to do, or something that is even legal for him to do.

“But Nadler took a very different stance on contempt back in 2012, when House Republicans took the same step against then-AG Eric Holder for refusing to hand over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal, where DOJ officials tracked thousands of guns smuggled across the border but did nothing to stop them.”

Scandal?  Scandal?  Did somebody say scandal?  But we’re always told by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” that the Obama presidency was a “scandal free” presidency?

Hardly.

nadler 3

Again…, just because they choose to not acknowledge something, referring to the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media,” does not mean it didn’t happen.

Democrats are at the point now where they don’t even have to be concerned about appearing to be consistent or “fair.”  The complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media”

nadler 6

‘“Just joined the #walkout of the House chamber to protest the shameful, politically-motivated GOP vote holding AG [Eric] Holder in contempt,’ Nadler tweeted in 2012.”

“He joined more than 100 Democrats in walking out over the vote to hold the Obama-era DOJ leader [Eric Holder] in contempt.”

nadler 1

“Then-House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., argued House Republicans were more politically motivated in attacking Holder than driven to get to the bottom of the failed operation.”

‘“What is happening here is shameful,’ said Pelosi.”

“After the contempt vote on Wednesday, conservatives pointed to the vintage Nadler tweet as an example of a double standard.”

‘“Ahhh the irony. Political hacks gonna hack,’ Donald Trump Jr. tweeted.”

‘“Nadler now says the White House’s stonewalling of Congress represents an attack on the essence of our democracy – as though stonewalling were some new phenomena,’ former Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said in an op-ed for Fox News. ‘Where was Nadler’s righteous indignation when the stonewalling came from a Democratic [Obama’s] White House?’”

We all know the answer to that one, Mr. Chaffetz.

“Nadler’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News.”

Oh…, well, that’s odd!

Not really.

That’s because Fox News isn’t a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Perhaps they should subpoena him!

“Imprisoning Bill Barr is [the] left’s new rallying cry: ‘Have him locked up!’”

By Brooke Singman of Fox News.

“The battle between congressional Democrats and the Justice Department over Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report has reached new levels of vitriol, as some on the left call for Attorney General Bill Barr to be physically dragged in to testify or even locked up for defying congressional subpoenas.”

“The demands have escalated after the attorney general refused to appear before the House Judiciary Committee last week amid disagreements over the format of the hearing.”

“Though he testified a day earlier on the Senate side, Democrats on the committee still want to bring in the DOJ leader to answer questions on the conclusion of Mueller’s investigation. Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y., also imposed a Monday morning deadline for Barr to turn over the full, unredacted Mueller report and additional files — a deadline the DOJ apparently missed, prompting Nadler to schedule a Wednesday vote on contempt proceedings against Barr.”

Everything that William Barr has done up this point is completely within in rights and responsibilities as Attorney General.

What we have on the democrats’ side is a bunch of grandstanding, and now desperation, as they learned that Mr. Barr was looking into what really happened regarding Russian collusion, and what really happened regarding spying on Americans, and what really happened that caused this fraudulent investigation to be launched in the first place.

headlines 3

Their main goal now is to discredit him, silence him, and preferably have him resign or be removed from office.  Anything but allow him to drag their “swampy” friends out into the sunlight.

headlines 15

‘“He [Attorney General Barr] lied to Congress.  And if anybody else did that, it would be considered a crime,’ Pelosi told reporters. ‘Nobody is above the law. Not the president of the United States.  Not the attorney general.’”

Apparently Mrs. Pelosi is an exception to that rule…, as she lies ALL of the time to Congress, to us, to basically anyone within earshot of her.

“Pelosi’s public comments came after she, according to Politico, told Rep. Charlie Crist, D-Fla., during a private caucus meeting Thursday: ‘We saw [Barr] commit a crime when he answered your question.’”

“However, according to both the Post and the Justice Department, Mueller made clear that he did not feel that Barr’s summary was inaccurate.  Instead, Mueller told Barr that media coverage of the letter had “misinterpreted” the results of the probe concerning obstruction of justice.”

We all know it doesn’t matter to the democrats what anyone actually says…, the only thing that matters is what they want us to hear.

“NPR reporter refers to Barr summary in same terms as FDR describing attack on Pearl Harbor.”

By Anna Hopkins of Fox News

“The Department of Justice reporter for NPR [National Public Radio] referred to the date of Attorney General Barr’s summary of the Mueller report as ‘a date that will live … in infamy,’ a phrase many associate with President Franklin Roosevelt’s 1941 speech following the Pearl Harbor attack.”

headlines 10

“NPR’s Carrie Johnson made the comment during the NPR Politics podcast last Wednesday while discussing Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, during which he answered questions about the summary he gave of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.”

NPR…, another arm of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

Aren’t you be a tad dramatic there Ms. Johnson?

“A day that will live in infamy?”

Really?

How about the day that people in our government were contemplating a coup against President Trump?  How about that day?

How about the day the DOJ and the FBI decided they were going to falsify testimony to the FISA court and spy on the Trump campaign?  How about that day?

How about the day that the FBI overstepped its bounds and declared Hillary did not break any laws, regarding obstructing justice by destroying her server and then deleting over 33,00 emails, because that was not her “intent.”  How about that day?

You’re pathetic, Carrie Johnson.  You’re just a tool to be used by the liberal propaganda machine. You’re no journalist, and you’re no reporter.

You’re a fool.

“Why are the House Democrats out to get Attorney General Barr?”

By Representative Andy Biggs for Fox News

“Democrats in Congress are so worried that the American people will find out what is NOT in the Mueller report that they will say and do almost anything. The report exposes their false assertions that President Trump cooperated with the Russians to influence the 2016 presidential election. They will resort to embarrassing stunts like bringing fast food chicken buckets into congressional hearings. And, they will attempt to destroy the reputation of Attorney General William Barr simply because he is the messenger who released the Mueller report to the public.”

headlines 13

“Consider that House Democrat leaders are claiming Barr lied about … what? They are upset because he wrote a memo iterating the major findings in the Mueller report. They castigated Barr for the few weeks it took for him to make legally required redactions in the Mueller report before he could publicly release the report. Turns out Barr’s initial summary was accurate. And, we have a special counsel report that is available for public viewing with very few redactions, proving that Democrats weren’t telling the truth for over two years.”

“The Democrats must also be troubled that the inspector general will soon be releasing his report regarding the findings of his investigation into the abuse of power, which includes obtaining secret warrants to spy on the Trump campaign under the Obama administration. They dare not let go of their attack on the president and anyone who works with him, knowing that the IG report will likely contain damaging revelations of the Democrat National Committee and the Clinton presidential campaign working with Russians to unleash the police apparatus under President Obama to spy on the Trump campaign for political purposes.”

headlines 5

The democrats are counting on the complicit “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media” to do their part and downplay or ignore any potentially damaging evidence that turns up.

They, in turn, will just continue to deny, deny, deny, and attempt to discredit William Barr, and anyone else that may need to be silenced.

“Dem state lawmaker records himself harassing pro-life woman outside Planned Parenthood”

By Caleb Parke of Fox News

“PA [Pennsylvania] State Representative Brian Sims recorded himself harassing a pro-life woman peacefully protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Sims’ Philadelphia district.”

headlines 12

“A Pennsylvania Democratic state representative went on an eight-minute rant, verbally harassing an elderly woman protesting outside a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.”

“Brian Sims recorded a woman outside Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, which is in his district, telling her to pray at home, calling her an ‘old white lady’ and lecturing her about her Christian beliefs on the Periscope app.”

‘“Push back against Planned Parenthood protestors, PLEASE!’ Sims wrote on Twitter Thursday. ‘They prey on young women, they use white privilege, & shame. They’re racist, classist, bigots who NEED & DESERVE our righteous opposition. Push back, please!’”

So here we have another obvious example of double standards exhibited by the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake new media.”

Here we have a politician no less, harassing an elderly citizen, who is doing everything within her rights as a citizen to do.

He brings her race into play, and then has the nerve to later call her a racist!

He also attacks her religion, which is okay to do, as long as it’s Christianity.  God forbid he would attack a Muslim!!!  Then we would really have a problem here!

The level of confusion exhibited by these clowns is just so impressive.

“Joy Behar slams ‘unpatriotic’ Trump, says GOP supporters should remove ‘those flag pins.’”

By Brian Flood for Fox News

‘“The View’ co-host Joy [less] Behar said on Monday that Republicans who support President Trump should take off ‘those flag pins’ because the president’s behavior regarding Russian meddling is ‘unpatriotic.’”

headlines 2

‘“It isn’t just that. Let’s talk about, you know, the fact that he met with Putin for 90 minutes… and never once brought up the fact that Russia, Russia interfered in our election,’ Behar said.

These libs just throw this stuff around like they know what they’re talking about.

How exactly did the Russians “interfere” with our elections?  They sure interfered far less than our own FBI and DOJ!  And I don’t hear her crying about James Comey or Loretta Lynch though!

That’s because Joy “less” Behar has no idea what she is talking about.  She is just a part of the “biased, liberal propaganda, fake news media.”

headlines 3

“Behar continued: ‘I said last week I don’t want to see any of those flag pins anymore on Republicans who don’t stand up against this guy for Russian meddling, and other things that he’s done. It seems as though he’s unpatriotic.’”

headlines 4

Joy “less” Behar is so far off base here, it’s hard to know how to respond.  So I guess I won’t.

“You can’t argue with crazy” is something my wife says all of the time.

And she’s right.

So I won’t.

“Behar has attacked Trump and his supporters on a regular basis, mocking everything from Mike Pence’s Christian faith to women who support Trump.  She immediately backtracked last September after saying ‘God forbid President Trump lives another 20 years.’”

What a peach.

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.”

lying hillary 1

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.

lying hillary 12

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.

lying hillary 5

“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?

lying hillary 3

lying hillary 7

‘“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.”

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$$!

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!

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.
