Attorney General Bill Barr Gives First Interview (Full Interview)…

U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr gives his first media interview since taking office.  Bill Hemmer interviews AG Barr in El Salvador on a wide variety of topics.  Fox News has packaged the broadcast interview to begin with questions to the AG about the ongoing “review” of FBI and DOJ conduct in the election, ie “SpyGate”.

The Attorney General explains how the primary aspects under review were conducted by a “small group” at the top of the institutions, and he was surprised to discover no-one had valid answers to his initial inquiry.  The lack of cogent explanation furthered his concerns and led to his decision to appoint a prosecutor, U.S. Attorney John H Durham, to conduct a more thorough review.

.

As you can tell the video was edited to run in a specific sequence. If you would prefer to listen to the interview, in its original form, without edits SEE Fox Radio HERE.

    And as usual Chrissy Wallace appears on Fox this a.m. insinuating that Barr is President Trump’s “lawyer”. We need indictments and people going to jail before the media will cover this story objectively!

      It makes me so crazy – here we have lady justice saying , “I have more questions today than before I was sworn in”. “I don’t want to speculate”. “We have a number of people out there asking questions”

      And Shazam! Chris wallace and the rest of the media say “see! See! He is biased bastard – trumps Ginny!”

      They think we are stupid.

                Sure. But Wallace is part of the staff.

                And with Wallace, you’d have to be a fairly reasonable critical thinker to detect and then explain how he’s being dishonest. I’ve found most people here are. But we’re in the top 10% of thinkers, lol.

                When you know the facts, it’s not being “balanced” to defend the indefensible. And Wallace no doubt has a decent handle on at least the basic fact that this was a hoax and that laws and civil rights were violated in a BIG way.

Yes, there were some barbs – and references to “executive privilege issues” that are most likely unfounded – but, all in all, “not too bad of a performance for a couple of people who are on camera wearing business suits in the tropics!” (Grin …)

          I think that Mr. Barr conducted himself very well by calmly saying, “I’m not going to speculate.” He didn’t give out talking-points, but of course he’s not a politician. And that’s exactly what I want to see from our nation’s supreme law-enforcement officer. I want him to find the facts, develop the Grand Jury cases, and proceed steadily – not hurriedly – toward what Justice requires.

        Exactly right, jrapdx… We need a decoder to discern the truth, even from FOX people like Wallace and others. Fortunately, Sundance has given us advanced decoder training. Hopefully, AG Barr will be so transparent and crystal clear about his eventual conclusions and the rationale for them, the media’s ability to warp them for public consumption will be diminished. Though they will do their best.

          Your idea is very interesting. Barr may have the talent to communicate in such a direct way that it’s difficult for the media to twist his words into something that he’s not said. If that’s the case I suspect the media will try to ignore Barr’s commentary.

            It’s sad that more people don’t “volunteer”, jrapdx, but unfortunately it’s true. I am haunted by the words of that MIT hack “economist”, Jonathan Gruber, when the Democrats trick-screwed the country into Obamacare by relying on “the stupidity of the American voter”… I’d prefer to err on the optimistic side and say that the American voter is just ignorant of the facts and cut them some slack. After all, they are fed Democrat lies and spin all-day-every-day by news outlets that they erroneously assume are credible. I think President Trump will have many “signature” accomplishments in his (2-term) presidency. Too many to list. But my hope is that one of them — exposing the mainstream media for the sham they are — will wake up Americans and make a dent in voter ignorance. And clear, fact-based, articulate, beyond-reproach (and fearless) officials like AG Barr seems to be will only help the cause.

              Very well said! True enough errant behavior is mostly the result of ignorance or incompetence vs. intention.

              But underlying so much TDS is deliberately not knowing facts of the matter (whatever the issue is). Sundance has written about this many times. Over the decades I’ve called it Acquired Stupidity Syndrome (or ASS for short). We forgive the naturally acquired forms of stupidity, ASS not so much.

              Many TDS-affected “liberals” are ASSes. Even when confronted with unassailable facts they persist in their false beliefs. This fraction of the population will never be deflected from their affliction.

              The larger and more important segment really cares little about political arguments. In regions where anti-Trumpism is dominant, they give lip service to TDS just to “get along” socially. It’s these “neutral” individuals who can be awakened by clear statements of Barr or dramatic political/legal developments.

              I’d expect these people will be voting for PT in 2020. By the election next year, likely to be many “dramatic events” getting widespread attention. It will be a whole new ballgame.

              One positive takeaway that I noticed was Barr’s indirect acknowledgment of how much time of Trumps first term has been consumed by the constant promotion of (what appear to be) lies. Even a half-assed investigation would be hard pressed to ignore the media’s role of criminal complicity in the events that have transpired.

      • Oh, I think that the media has already pretty much figured out that “this story has turned, big time.” Perhaps they were complicit in what happened; perhaps they were simply duped. I mean, as the actual truth of this matter starts to come out, it DOES stretch one’s powers of credibility. This is not what you expect a once-respected former President and/or a once-respected Candidate to actually be capable of … or to be able to successfully cause our Government to do against -any- of its US Citizens. But we are all now being confronted – as a nation – that this is apparently exactly what just happened.

        Likewise, when institutions like “FBI” and “CIA” are mentioned, you don’t think “politics.” When “counter-intelligence” is mentioned, the target’s supposed to be a foreigner, not an American President(!). These are developments that, I think, the media is also not prepared to accept.

        But to now say that “the tables have turned” could mean many different things . . . a once-compliant “media” could very swiftly turn savagely against them.

          If the media were complicit, then RICO is a possible way for Justice to proceed against conspirators and co-conspirators. Individually, media entities and individuals can claim that they didn’t know nothing ‘cept what Comey, Brennan, etc. told them. But if there is a paper trail of collusion (e.g., FBI and media transactions, already noted in first IG report), and resultant economic damage to Trump officials, etc., perhaps RICO would be the way to proceed?

          Via Wikipedia: “In April 2000, federal judge William J. Rea in Los Angeles, ruling in one Rampart scandal case, said that the plaintiffs could pursue RICO claims against the LAPD, an unprecedented finding. The idea that a police organization could be characterized as a racketeering enterprise shook up City Hall and further damaged the already-tarnished image of the LAPD. However, in July 2001, US District Judge Gary A. Feess said that the plaintiffs do not have standing to sue the LAPD under RICO because they are alleging personal injuries rather than economic or property damage.”

        Election Night 2016. The FNC Election coverage panel lied to us through delay and omission just like every other MSM outlet. FBC was the only channel I saw calling races and reporting results in real time.

        They all lie. It’s not agenda nor favoritism as we are persuaded to buy in to…. ITS 100% Socio-economic…… The self-categorized elite vs. Everybody else. The ’elite’ has defined themselves to the front of the line and in the ‘in crowd’. These ‘elites’ are all the socially awkward types from HS. They got some college and believe it’s their ticket to ‘the’ club. Today’s college degree has been oversold, overvalued, and, unfortunately massively dumbed down to fit the recipient.

        The ‘higher education’ bubble is not sustainable. Not just because of the wealth transfer program it has become…. but, eventually, these paper mills will be held accountable. In most walks of life you are an ambassador. Let’s make the paper mills take ownership of their alumni.

      In response to Dems saying AG Barr acted as President Trump’s attorney, Ian Prior former DOJ Dep Dir. Of Public Affairs, said AG Barr was doing his job. Mueller gave him the report with no conclusion on obstruction. At that point the AG had to look at the evidence and the law. He found there was no obstruction.

      Mr. Prior said using the Dem’s spin you could say every prosecutor is the person’s attorney in the process of reviewing evidence and deciding whether to prosecute. They look at the evidence, they look at the law they determine whether there is a reason to prosecute or not.

      Unlike Chrissy Mr. Prior was reasoned and interesting. His comments start at 12:50.

      Mr. Prior’s comments about the job of prosecutors making a final decision starts at 14:40.

      Pelosi pointed to Barr this exchange, (paraphrasing) Do you know what problem Mueller had with your 4 page summary?”, and he replied “No, I don’t.”

      Pretty difficult to convict on perjury, for what someone “knew”; as you have to get inside their head.

      Mueller/Weisman sent a letter, complaining about Barrs 4 page summary. Barr calked Mueller up to ask him “Whats your problem?”

      CYA, Barr taped the call, had ithers listening in on and transcribing the call, and TOLD Mueller he was recording the call, again CYA. KNOWING he was being recorded, Mueller tried to ‘spin’ it;
      “Oh, my problem wasn’t with YOUR 4 page summary, it was with how it was,reported in the press. So, I was wondering if you could release my reports summary, to give the press a fuller picture?”

      Barr said, “Uh, yeah right!” (Pound sand, its not my job to try to manipulate press coverage.)

        Mueller would have been happy with the media’s spin on those. Hell, Weissman probably had helpful talking points and strategies already set to distribute to the MSM Co-Conspirators. Barr played that well.

        IMHO the Cates are guilty of Wictorism in trying to divine the secret intentions of people when Cates simply cannot accept they are exactly what they appear to be, so they invent fantastical tales to explain away unacceptable reality.

        Jeff Sessions wasn’t a feckless linguini-spined battered conservative who surrendered before the first shot was fired; he was a SUPER-SECRETY STEALTH ASSASSIN!

        Rod Rosenstein isn’t a weak man who was manipulated into furthering the coup attempt by the conspirators: He’s a super-stealth 64-D chess master who empaneled Mueller to secretly investigate the president’s DEEP STATE ENEMIES! Yeah, that’s the ticket!

        None of the silly “Art of War” deception explanations make any sense: If the imputed goal was what Stealth Jeff and Rod Rosenstein (and Undercover Huber) intended … why go through the charade of feigning weakness? JUST DO IT.

        The answer of course: THEY WERE WEAK. And President Trump, political neophyte who won the presidency, was blindsided by the Mueller probe because the man he put into place to run the DOJ, Jeff Sessions, never took charge and instead allowed Obama holdovers to run buck wild for the first 2 years of the president’s term.

        There is a special place in hell for Jeff Sessions.

          I both agree and disagree with you.

          I think it was QAnon who introduced the “4-D Chess” idea into this investigation. The only 4-D aspect to this whole thing is how many people and sides/interests are involved in this fiasco. Even the Special Counsel itself has different aspects and motivations to it. Due to QAnon, many people have become confused about the nature of the whole thing, since they are thinking it’s all part of a grand plan to string up the Deep State and hang them by lamp posts.

          Despite whether or not they were effective or not, or corrupt or not, Sessions, Rosenstein, and Wray all played a part in this story. And not all of them have nefarious intentions. I’m on the fence about Wray but evidence is now pointing at Sessions and Rosenstein doing the right thing and having the right intentions, but only being able to work within a limited framework due to the Special Counsel.

          The genie is out of the bottle on SpyGate. If the IG or DOJ attempts to try to make this go away, then “Katy Barr the door”. Congress is very clearly working to keep Barr honest by keeping the visibility on this scandal as high as possible. An army of researchers like Sundance are keeping maximum visibility on this and are piecing together the puzzle.

          I know a lot of people are nervous about this whole thing but I really believe that the President and current DOJ leadership fully intends to make absolutely certain that this NEVER happens again.

          Not defending Sessions, at all. I feel that I now have SOME explanation for Sessions behavior, that has puzzled me until now.
          On one of yesterdays posts by Sundance, it includes a ‘screen shot’from page 12-13 of the Mueller report. Talking about scope, its down at the bottom, just below the section Sundance outlined in red.

          Says Sessions was ‘under investigation’, PRIOR to the election, for contacts with Russian officials. So, I THINK at some point, perhaps when Sessions met with the ‘ethics panel’ at DOJ, they ‘sat him down’.
          “We have ‘clear and convincing evidence’ DJT is an agent of Russia. He is currently the SUBJECT of an investigation for BEING a foreign agent.
          We have evidence officials in his campaign have met, communicated with and are working with Russian officials.
          We can’t tell him je is under investigation, and neither can you.
          You can prove you are not involved by recusing yourself from all things Russia.
          Leave that up to your AAG, Rod Rosenstein. They played him tapes of his phone conversations with kysliac, making it clear to him he had been, and remained under survellence, and he caved. He was totally unprepared for the unprecedented viscious, venal manipulation he was being subject to, as were Flynn and the admin.

          Looking back, with what,we know now, it seems naive. But back then, WHO would have believed what we now know?

          Anyway, not an excuse, but now I THINK I know why Sessions recused.
          He got conned, and was totally sandbagged.
          Barr wouldn’t have fallen for it, nor would Giulliani. But, Sessions did.

            I agree with that. I’m from Minnesota (40yrs) but spent the last 22 yrs in Alabama, up until 2014 when my (southern) husband died. Jeff Sessions is a highly respected senator there. I was shocked at the “weakness” of Sessions in the AG position, but once I really thought about it, not really. Jeff Sessions is a southern gentleman, a good honest man. These people tell the truth and when he got in as AG I’m certain he expected others there to be honest and also having his type of integrity. Bam! That didn’t happen and he was not ready for what happened. He was naive to think so. Also, southern gentlemen, being who they are, are not used to confrontation, lies, dishonesty and the down right vileness of those people he led in the doj, fbi (small letters)and other departments. He was just in over his head. That’s my thought having been in his state for all those years and knowing he is good.

    Yes, I caught the “small group” reference. I can only hope that means that Barr has been following the work on this scandal by Sundance, hopefully from the beginning. If so, he will know all the right questions to ask, and he will understand, as all of us do now, thanks to Sundance, that everything that happened after March 2016 was done to cover up everything that happened before March 2016.

      Barr has the Nunes criminal referrals. He has a very experienced US District attorney working on them. Durham is building airtight indictments using Nunes material and whatever else he needs to dig up using subpoenas and grand jury testimony. Given the political explosiveness involved, it will take some time. Barr is already setting the table with ‘I don’t like some of the answers, and stuff doesn’t fit together’.

      The trigger for action is the IG FISA report, due maybe early June. Thats less than a month.

        Yeah, I LOVED those comments from Barr. Something like “When I came in, I expected to get logical concise answers to my questions, and instead I got;
        Uh, the dog ate my homework!
        Space aliens STOLE my homework!
        My dog ate my homework, and the space aliens KIDNAPPED my dog! Yeah, THATS it!
        We have all seen it, some of us have done it, and prosecutors see it ALL the time. Same kind of behavior we see from children, caught in the act. Deny, deflect, excuse. RARELY works IF the prosecutor has enough ADMISSABLE evidence, and I THINK there is mountains.

            Kim Strassel’s piece yesterday indicated that Durham did not have that authority (maybe she means ‘with respect to this matter’ or something?) it was very disconcerting when I saw it because it was so contrary to all that I’ve read about USDA’s.

          Yes you would be far more correct than not to always first assume that whatever is printed by the NYT is fake news, either in part or in its entirety.

          Knowing what we know about ALL of the dynamics between the President and his domestic (& foreign) political enemies; seeing what we have seen the NYT print, all the while knowing the real truth based on verifiable information as discussed and linked here in CTH, and also reading verified information elsewhere on credible investigative reporting sites, it does not seem rational that any of us would take anything in the NYSlimes (or WaPo for that matter) seriously and assume it is factual.

      What I want to see in all of this are: honest investigations, lawful indictments, fair trials, and just punishment. I am really committed to the just punishment part.

      Sadly, that means all of this is going to take a lot more time than I want it to take.

      All Barr can do is indict and then try the case. But, in my opinion he would be a fool to rush into that, because the guilty parties have used the media for more than 2 years to poison their own jury pool. In a country with double jepardy it doesn’t make sense to risk jury nullification caused by impatient preparation.

      So, as I see it, to get the convictions that are justly deserved, all this is going to take a solid PR campaign first. A solid PR campaign is going to require a lot of effort and mindless repetition of the real story. You, I, and everyone like us, will be sick of the PR campaign a long damn time before it is done because we don’t need it. However, It has to be done to cut through the effectiveness of the lies that have been broadcast so widely and with such fever for so long.

      To my dismay, I already know that Obama and Clinton are both going to escape because of their ‘Jackie Robinson’ status in US politics (and also because Nixon walked). However, I hope and pray that every other one of the other guity parties get named, shamed, and will serve some time. So, I am willing to wait until the completion of a well-run PR campaign as needed to get a jury pool with at least a good chance that they will actually listen to the true evidence.

        Don’t have to work as hard at cutting through the lies….. a blitzkreig against the liars is what is needed. Nullify the MSM propaganda by exposing it as such. Remember, 75% of non-Trump supporters will not ever change their minds. We only need to focus on the 15-20% that are reasonable. Half of them and POTUS gets 55-60% of the vote.

        The DONKS have no plan. No candidate they are pinning hopes on even thinly appeals to POTUS Trumps existing Base. So, it’s nothing but throwing poo from now until NOV ‘20. And, POTUS can stand there and let it hit him. He can then point to the turds sliding off and say…. 4 years of poo flinging, and ZERO sticks. He can then read the list of accomplishments and ask what is the opponent(s) going to do better than that?

        I think establishment DC is scared $hitle$$. POTUS Trump came in to office, 100% beholden to America and its people and values ONLY and has set the whole thing on fire. Ruling classes hate outsiders…. more than that, they hate an outsider showing them up. POTUS Trump has proven that you do not need to be a ‘seasoned’ politician to exact change and get results.

        I think they are deathly afraid of the Tsunami of executives that will start stepping on to the public stage and do their civic duty. A return to citizen legislators and the duty of returning to their regular lives after a term or two. It also points out the need to evaluate full time job elected officials. POTUS has had very little help on his agenda from either side. Why pay 6 figures in salary and 7 figures in staff and expenses per elected federal office holder to do nothing? It’s like the only field that draws a check to NOT be productive.

          Tea Rose, I agree with your observation and I think the more the population LOUDLY hungers for justice the better chance justice will actually occur. We must support Barr’s struggle for justice with the same passion that we support Pres Trump. I believe both men are allies of the American people. I would love to see prison terms for Clinton Brennan Comey and the entire criminal gang. All of them are an excellent argument for bringing back the guillotine. But if we can see them shamed and permanently exiled from public life, even that would be a victory.

      Don’t forget. The ‘by the book’ memo was written to justify the Jan 5 meeting with the President where Comey and Clapper got their marching orders to get the ‘pee dossier’ in the public after ‘briefing’ Trump the next day.

      This is part of the trap Sundance has been warning about.

      BTW, I suspect the Comey frame up was also part of Comey’s instructions. This is the meeting where Comey set the practice for his unprecedented one on one meetings with the soon to be President.

      Also don’t forget, that he was falsifying a record of those meetings immediately after each one, and discussing his false records with his collaborators, in order that he could present his ‘documented’ his false accusations, complete with external witnesses attesting to timely conversations over Comey’s ‘concerns’.

      And, the memos from this unprecedented practice, were the very memos Comey leaked to create a Special Counsel to investigate and get Trump impeached.

        The whole premise of polls are FAKE.
        You simply can NOT correlate the answers of a bunch of people.
        You can’t ask ‘essay’ type questions, cause you can’t collate the anwers.

        So, you can’t ask “why do you dislike Trump”, or “why do you like Trump?” because each answer would be unique.

        So, have to ask “on a scale of Very good, good fair or poor, how would you rate Trump on the economy, for instance.

        One person might say “poor”, because they think he should be doing MORE, while the other, giving the same responce, thinks he isn’t doing ENOUGH. So, their views of Trump, on the economy are actually opposite, yet ‘ lumped’ together.
        Obviously this is an example.

        And then, there is the whole idea of ‘demographics’; that if you ask 50, say white males between 25-35 y.o., making undrr $50,000 a year, with high school diplomas, that THEIR answers will be an accurate representation of what ALL people in that demographic will have.

        Absurd! Its junk science, and never has been accurate. Even when polls are,said to accurate predict who won an election, if you look at the %, they are way off, and all over the board.

      I believe he would resign first. He came out of retirement, KNOWING FULL WELL he would be attacked and ridiculed, in order to reestablish the rule of law, and attempt to repair the damage these asshats have done.

      A Special Council appointment is an admission the Justice Department is incapable of investigating and prosecuting this corrupt etc. behavior by FORMER employees. It would be counterproductive to his whole reason for being there.

      And, while Horowitz can’t indict, Barr and Durham sure can. Barr isn’t unaware of the politics of this, and knows when the 2020 election is. By his statement he recognises that an administration was handicapped by this b.s., and if exposing and indicting these miscreants gives PDJT a political advantage in 2020, maybe thats some payback.
      Ironic, isn’t it? The cockamamie plan to prevent DJT from becoming POTUS, and redoubled to drive him out, may well cement his reelection. Talk about hoist by your own petard, screwed yourself on THAT one, etc.

      Agree. This is how a professional works. We aren’t used to it any more. He does two things that are refreshing: He doesn’t pre-judge facts before they’re established (he’s correct — however obvious it may seem, he can’t conclusively and definitely explain Brennan, Clapper and Comey et al, not at this point, so instead of indulging us with insidery speculations (like Brennan, Clapper and Comey have done), he states plainly that he doesn’t know, but what he’s been told doesn’t hang together. And second, he doesn’t insult us and the English language with mind-numbing euphamisms for what ARE established facts: the IC spied on an American political campaign. It did so using “opposition research.”

      Here’s another subtle, devastating zinger: He said the FBI used oppo research containing a rather “jejune” analysis. Jejune is such an obscure word it flies right by — I had to look it up — it means “devoid of significance or interest, dull.” Synonyms are “insipid,” “vapid” and “flat.” HA! Brilliant. We’re so used to everyone treating “the Dossier” like some holy grail intelligence product; the big questions were where it came from and is it true — but implicit even in those questions is the idea that as a work product, the dossier is substantial. With one word, Barr decimates that whole premise, and along with it any pretense among the media and former administration officials trying to be taken so seriously. Barr essentially is saying, I can’t figure out what you people have been fussing over, this thing is amateur hour.

(The Intelligence community feels the same way about the same thing.)

      He’s not a moron. Hemmer asked questions we all have; when Barr begs off, he followed up with a rephrase or different tack that Barr could answer. I thought he covered decent ground. For example, he elicited a response about the post-election/pre-inauguration period, which we know is not technically part of the “scope” assigned to Durham. Barr stated that “developments” during that period are part of what he has questions about. That’s news. And that was in response to a question that Barr couldn’t directly or specifically answer, about whether he thought Obama admin officials may have been acting in that period to cover prior conduct. It was an informed and relevant question, and got some new information.

      One things for sure — it was way better than, say, Chris Wallace, who would have delivered 30 minutes of “are you acting as lawyer for the President, or do you hate the democrats? Which is it? I guess you’re not going to answer my questions.”

If we had true equal justice, serious and honest investigators, and a curious and legitimate media this whole hoax and cover up would have been exposed years ago. No sweat.

      Since his inauguration President Trump has had to slowly and very carefully cobble together a group of truly reliable and loyal supporting advisers who actually give objective but accurate assessments and opinions to him about appointees, policies, decisions. He was originally relying on some who misrepresented themselves as loyalists but who were anything but loyal to him.

      Over the past two years, he has had to endure and recover from the backstabbing, the bad advice, the deliberate set-ups, the moles, the embedded opposition. I think he is working far more effectively than before because he was exonerated from the Muh Russia crap and because he has eliminated and replaced more of the stinking corrupt remnants of Ozero in the White House and in the management of Executive Branch agencies.

      There is still much corrupt stench left in the SES, but PDJT has made progress and we are seeing him gradually getting up to stride. Now if only the Senate majority was worthy of being called MAGA Republican instead of RINO obstructionists.

Barr would be mindful of the statute of limitations on the crimes committed by the Odumbo co-conspirators so if there is going to be meaningful investigations resulting in indictments they shouldn’t be too far off.

      I hear you. I have thought about that often recently, and it pains me. But in a weird way it’s almost better that things happened the way they did. The stupid libtards clung to the hope that Mueller would put the entire Trump family in prison … and then nothing happened, Trump is still President. Another cruel trick on the libtards, perhaps worse than telling them Hillary would win by a landslide. 🙂 This is the kind of stuff that causes the more astute libtards to wake up and jump ship. On the other hand, some people’s lives were all but ruined. I hope Trump pardons everyone except Michael Cohen who is a complete and utter loser.

    Question for this very smart community: does anyone credibly thing Barr is going to include an investigation of the Mueller team’s conduct (and Rosenstein’s scoping) as part of his investigation(s)? Including but not limited to issues like (not in order of importance):
    – Knowing there was no collusion day-one but still continuing on for 2+ years on phony obstruction witch-hunt
    – Entrapping PapaD (the $10k sting operation)
    – The dirty tactics used against Flynn, leveraging his son, etc.
    – The baselessness of the second scope memo – this issue creeping into Rosenstein territory
    – The double-standard of indicting Manafort on FARA violations but not others who would have come up in the orbit like Podesta?
    – The ignoring of the Hilary campaign despite the first scope memo of investigation “Russian influence”?
    – Other things I’m sure I’m missing

    Or will he deem the Rosenstein/Mueller aspect of this saga “out of scope” in his framing of the issues to be investigated?

      IMO Barr will not go after the Mueller investigation process. First,,he has no legal basis to do so. Second, the result was no collusion/no obstruction. Best leave that lie where it is. To get never again, the perps who falsely precipitated the Mueller investigation have to be taken down. It appears that is now happening.

        Ristvan, I understand letting the sleeping dog lie, but is there any legal basis to go after any of the investigators that were perpetuating the fraud of collusion in an effort to set up obstruction? Or is that too hard to prove?

        I’m not being sarcastic. I respect your opinion.

      I feel sure that if AG Barr is the real deal – and he appears to be – that he will have someone look at what took place. He has already said that he is trying to figure out all that happened, and this is part of what happened.

      The unsolicited amicus brief he submitted last summer adds to that belief.

      As Ms. Powell keeps reminding us, prosecutors behavior matters, see the entire CTH thread today and yesterday on General Flynn’s situation.

      Here’s another case which appears to be affected by prosecutorial misconduct:

    Dear President Trump,

    This has gone on long enough. In your life experiences, if an executive at one of your enterprises was involved in a major blunder, no make that a massive ‘God Dam It’.

    I do sometimes wonder, if things happen for a reason, the USA had to suffer King Barack, so you end up with Trump and then you have to suffer Sessions to end up with Barr!

      Yes Torch – Watching President Trump these past two years, it’s enlightening how he masterfully engages each participant involved in the misuse of American trust and well being.

      Every bad actor is engaged by honestly confronting the problem. Then the offer to make the corrections is extended, either through negotiations or direct demand.

      President Trump’s gift is honesty, he brings a spotlight to each wrong he is addressing.

      And that’s where it gets interesting. Think NATO, Mexico, Canada, EU, China, NoKo missles and talks, Tariffs and equal trade, Iran, Pelosi’s House with immigration and govt shut-down, Tax Reform, Energy independence…

      When the light of Trump’s truth shines upon the bad actors, we see their true character magnified. America’s enemies and true friends are revealed. Funny how revealing speaking the truth can be.

      We watched Pelosi and Schiff try to fly off on a junket while the govt was shut down, not really concerned with the invasion at our Southern border. We saw China openly do the Panda/Dragon dance, only to have the curtain come down on the charade. We watch President Trump reveal the puppet strings that
      give life to Kim Jung Un.

      We watched in horror as the DS – Uni Party criminals sabotaged 3 years of this brilliant and honorable American President’s precious time in office.

      Every body is given a chance – act honorably. By refusing, they display their true intent – that is the uncommon genius of President Donald J Trump. He then honorably takes action to secure what is right for Americans.

      Our President delights in truth and light. He works very hard to make things right. He wears the fingerprints of GOD upon him.

    Barr’s comments about Pelosi I think are particularly significant. For a guy who doesn’t like to speculate (a phrase he used how many times?) he was quick to speculate on her motives. That’s a signal to me that this was not a flippant answer but a strategic one. So he says they are attacking him because of his investigation into the origins of Russiagate. On its face this just seems like a natural defense move to preempt their attacks but I think there is a bit more to it.

    The Dems do not have to defend Comey, Brennan, and the gang. All of those guys were supposed to be non partisans and a bunch of them were supposedly Republicans. Accusing Barr of acting like a partisan cuts both ways. It can discredit his investigations but it also ties those guys and their actions to the Democratic Party. His response to me is a pretty clear warning to Pelosi that if she wants to continue this line of attack then Barr will be happy to tie these guys and their actions to her.

    Remember the Dems dropped McCabe like a hot potato once the evidence of his misconduct was released. They then just pretended like a week earlier they weren’t calling him a national hero. They are comfortable using these guys until there is a price. Of course Sessions never called them out for that but Barr is signalling that he will be happy to make this partisan if they want but he will make them pay a much heavier price for their support once the details of their misconduct is revealed.

    At some point the Dems are going to have to cut their losses and they know it. I’m not sure how successful he will be but I’m certain Barr is going to continue to push them to make that move much sooner than they would prefer.

      As things seem to (finally) be playing out, it would appear there will be a price to supporting many of the major players in this saga… It will be interesting to watch the Democrats drop them one-by-one like hot rocks and pretend they never knew of them.

It makes me sick to watch these miserable bastards always talking shit about President Trump when they know the real truth. These people are not looking for solutions but are looking to assist in covering up the left wings crimes. AG Barr is the adult in the room. A confident, decent man trying to right wrongs and trying to bring justice, trust and faith back to our government. These idiot liberals are the true tools of Putin and Russia. Stop your shit let Barr do his job. Take the advice our liberals pals were givig trump. Why worry if you did nothing wrong let Barr complete his investigation. Shoe on the other foot kinda tight hey.
