Elbow Room – AG Barr: “President Trump Tweets Make It Impossible For Me To Do My Job”…

An interview by AG Bill Barr today is making a lot of headlines. Within the interview Barr indicates that President Trump’s style of communication makes it more difficult for him to do his job.

Here’s the captured interview without pundit opinion. Watch the full interview yourself and decide:

.

Here’s my take…

It seemed possible yesterday, when AG Bill Barr agreed to testify to the House Judiciary Committee on March 31st, that one of the motives for Barr to coordinate a schedule two months in advance was to gain elbow room.

There never has been any coordination between President Trump and AG Barr on the agenda of the DOJ. However, by placing the testimonial date publicly on his agenda Barr seemed to be stating to those in/around the White House his intent for a disconnect from contact pending questions from highly partisan Democrats.

Given the nature of the highly partisan scrutiny; and considering the rabid media waiting to jump on any narrative engineering opportunity; and with the John Durham investigation outcome looming closer on the horizon; it makes sense for AG Barr to try and create an openly visible disconnect.

In essence Bill Barr is working to emphasize there’s no undue influence, and also emphasize the appearance of no undue influence.  The problem, however, is that the media will create the impression of influence even if, and despite the reality of, no Trump influence.

Nothing Bill Barr does and/or says will stop the media from falsely creating a narrative that says President Trump and Bill Barr are colluding to target their political opposition.

With that reality in mind, the answers in the ABC interview as delivered by Bill Barr only pour fire on a furnace of media intent to controversialize President Trump’s communication approach.

Barr’s intention may have been good (albeit selfish), but declaring that President Trump’s free speech and opinion as an impediment to Barr’s ability is just nonsense.

The emphasis is on the wrong syllable.

President Trump has the right to express his opinion and share his views with The People, the American electorate, who put him into office.  The President may do so in any form, manner, venue, method or presentation that fits his needs. Period. Fullstop.

It is not President Trump tweeting that makes Barr’s job more difficult; it is the DC beltway response and media apoplexy directed to the AG that makes things more difficult.

If lawyers have their feelings hurt; or if the sensibility of judges is wounded; and if the judicial system of the U.S. government is so tenuous as to be affected by words and criticism; and if AG Barr cannot simply address the issues therein by appropriately positioning a mirror to highlight that nonsense; well, that is not President Trump’s issue.

The consequence he describes, the issues underpinning Barr’s expressed concern, only further emphasizes President Trump’s point about how the justice system is being compromised by politics and media. The simple application of law is being ignored; and the system, of which Bill Barr is the apex participant, is corrupted and diminished by man-made manipulation based on politics and other factors…

If President Trump saying “this case sucks” via Twitter is enough to collapse the institutional objectives of a modern judicial system… and impede the ability of the U.S. Attorney General to do his job, well, what does that say about how weak and compromised the guardians have allowed that system to become?

Then again, that level of institutional compromise explains exactly why a fraudulent impeachment attempt was even possible.

    I”m not all that Keen on Barr. He may very well be one of the most competent lawyers in DC but willful blindness of what is going on is inexcusable. I believe he does not want to open the can of worms that was canned by the Obama Administration ,between the embedded resistance and the other people who have as their main goal to thwart the Presidents agenda. Everything that has gone on since probably Circa 2012 needs to be brought to light. the years of political illegal spying and the use of private contractors to search the NSA’s metadata for opposition research. Obama started out slow by building his data base by using the IRS and graduated with the help of willing accomplishes to using the NSA as a political weapon. I remember the clowns who caught wind of what he was up to and they went out of their minds and couldn’t keep their mouths shut. They felt invincible because they knew Obama was using a very powerful Illegal weapon against the republicans /conservatives.
    To expose it all would drastically change everything in Washington. Picture the swamp drained………….what would that look like?

      Agree 100%.

      The following info doesn’t reply to the above post, but i could not find a place so I just went to the latest post tonight. It’s really good stuff that will make your blood boil about one of the DOI (Dept of Injustice) prosecutors in the Stone case, Jonathan Kravis, who formally withdrew after his recommendation for the Death Penalty for Stone didn’t fly.

      The link is to an interview with Fed Ct practitioner Jesse Binall who is currently working with Sidney for Gen Flynn. But it’s about a political case he tried against prosecutor Kravis and the crap he pulled. I’ve always said DOJ/FBI only gets away with this nonsense because 90% of the Fed Ct trial judges are in the their pockets for whatever reason, probably fear. Will the Trump appointees to the bench follow suit? We’ll see.

      I think you are going to be really pissed off after you read this interview. I am fairly new here so I hope I’m not violating a sundance rule by posting a link.

    I am 70/30 that this is a sweeping operation but…………..

    But my 30% keeps pointing out……….

    1) Barr did moved out Jessie Liu out of US Attorney DC position

    2) Barr did bring in from the outside, Timothy Shea as new US Attorney for DC

    3) Barr did bring in Zachary Terwilliger as US Attorney of EDVA (#4 in line of DOJ succession)
    Key point here is Zach is the son of George Terwilliger who was Bill Barr’s DAG from 91-93

    4) Barr did bring in his colleague from private practices, Jeffrey Rosen the current DAG

    5) Just moved the Ukraine Review to a PT appointed US Attorney in Western Pittsburgh when he could have moved to it to a DS Attorney.

    Barr could have easily left Jessie in place and promoted from the existing pool of US Attorneys but he didn’t.

    Bottom line IMO we will know if the 70 or the 30 wins by 3/31 as I would expect either indictments or sweeping will become obvious.

      This is all wrong and all the posturing adds up to nothing. All good lawyers tell their clients to avoid public comment on cases they have any connection to and AG Barr is merely stating the obvious.

      His job is made more difficult with public comment even though President Trump doesn’t directly interfere.

      AG Barr is correct and nothing wrong with him saying steer clear of comment on active cases. It’s common sense.

          Right now the public perception being created by the media and the Dems, is that Barr is Trump’s “wingman” and is operating politically (like we know that Lynch or Holder did). What Barr said was perfect to destroy that narrative. 1. The president has not asked him to do anything 2. The tweets don’t help him. That’s not going to affect Trump in any way. He’s going to tweet if he wants and Barr knows it. Barr’s statement helps both Trump and him as it looks like Barr is independently administering justice.
          If it is any other way, then no one will ever accept a thing Barr does. The left is always going to hate Trump and Barr but we have to win the PR battle on this one. This was an excellent step.

      I believe Barr was forced to act on Ms. Liu by what was publicly available and brutally evident to anyone. I do not believe he would have removed Ms. Liu if there wasn’t overwhelming evidence in the public sphere, that highlighted her action in the James Wolfe case.

      Simply, that background issue around Liu and her decisions in the Wolfe case was clear, obvious, factual and unequivocal. Barr didn’t really have a choice…. eventually it would have come out…. eventually it was too big an issue and he would have to deal with it. It was/is too big a risk to just ignore. The ramifications far too encompassing.

      Shea worked with Barr on the Epstein investigation. I find it difficult not to question the integrity of that investigation. So, do they both have something to hide and now they can keep an eye on each other?

      I seriously don’t know, but ever since I saw Shea worked with Barr on the Epstein investigation, it is like a burr in my shoe.
      Did Barr appreciate Shea’s ability to sweep?

      Barr’s statement was disgraceful, IMO.

    Don’t forget how he drew Rod Rosenstein in really close where others may have chosen not to. Barr is still feeling his way around and I will give him every benefit of the doubt as he moves stealthily through this marathon of an undertaking.

    I might have sympathy for Barr’s complaint if I could identify any “job” he is actually doing. So far I haven’t been able to do so. Zero docs declassified. Zero swamp creatures prosecuted. Exactly what “job” are you doing that is being interfered with by PT tweets, Mr. Barr? Out of one side of his mouth Barr claims separation between DOJ and POTUS. Out of the other side he cries POTUS tweet interference. If there was really the separation Barr suggests, how could POTUS tweeting interfere with the DOJ any more than, say, a Senator or any other prominent government official, where there really is separation? Sounds like a threat to take the next offramp.

    I listened to the entire interview and I don’t think anything AG Barr said was unreasonable, what’s more, it enabled him to set the record straight about NOT having been pressured by the POTUS when it comes to ANY of the DOJ’s criminal cases.. IMO POTUS would be better served if he occasionally exhibited a little more restraint and wasn’t so quick to opine. I generally don’t have a problem at all with his tweets and in fact believe that, considering how he’s treated by Democrats/MSM, tweeting is a very necessary and effective way for him to communicate. But once in a while I’ve really really wished he would have been more judicious and opted NOT to convey his thoughts so quickly, or in a particular manner.

    Sorry, but anyone who won’t admit that once in a while (but luckily not too often) the POTUS’ tweets have been self-defeating either isn’t being honest or else lacks good sense..

      It is not at all complicated: the President, in sending tweets, is not communicating with pundits (even if they are referenced). He’s not communicating with other politicians, newsmen and women (even when they are referenced). He’s communicating only with his base of supporters in a stream of simple honesty and openness about shared beliefs, goals and perspectives. Donald Trump, President of the United States, may be the closest personal friend of millions of Americans who find their politics, personalities, or circumstances prevent them form feeling completely open with anybody else. This is not trivial. A majority of Americans don’t care, or are not aware of the precarious state of our world. Hence, in a world-first, the President of the United States speaks directly friend to friend with millions. Donald The Great will be long remembered for this alone, not to mention his historic agenda and achievements.

    Remember Obama went on one of the networks and fully exonerated Hillary Clinton and her “email” issue in mid 2016, during an ongoing investigation and well before Comey went before cameras and excused her on the same bogus grounds.

    No one had a problem then.

    I see how Trump’s tweeting might make life more difficult for Barr on a very practical level. A lot of time on “damage control” and even perceptions within the ranks. Plus it probably bugs him when even conservative observers who generally understand what’s going on start ringing their hands (e.g., Andrew McCarthy).

    But Sundance as usual is exactly right. If the tweets bug him, there’s a simple solution. Actually DO your job. Apply the law evenly. Right your ship. Quit whining. Get it done.

    I don’t think AG Barr likes the news stories about Congress impeaching HIM; so can understand his need to create the space, the elbow room. That one or two tweets from a sitting President can bring down the rule of law that is overseen by the DOJ, – exactly what Sundance seems to be saying, that just shows how out of sync this government is with the Constitution those folks swore to defend.

    Barr could get pissed enough to resign if the heat in the kitchen gets too hot, or if President tweets something that the AG felt was in his own personal ballpark – if that happens where does that leave cleaning the swamp activity?

    Glad that President Trump acknowledged Barr’s frustration while simultaneously standing on his right to free speech and to let the people who voted for him, and everyone else, where he stands on things. That’s what a President is supposed to do.

    Balancing act for sure. Looking forward to find out what this Stone Judge does next, and to find out if Judge Sullivan is following along and how that would affect his handling the Flynn case.

      Both are typical ultra pro govt who eat whatever DOJ tells them. No way Sullivan allows Flynn to w/draw his plea, he’s made too many harsh comments on the records over the course, like angrily telling Flynn he betrayed his country, a few other DOJ/FBI inspired zingers. Amy hates anything Trump. I doubt she’ll grant Stone a new trial, will sentence him mid range of the new DOJ guidelines so that she looks fair, but she’ll prolly be reversed on Appeal for denying a new trial–in 18 months after Stone has gone batty in jail. But, the new expose on this jury foreman is pretty damning, and she already has denied one of Flynn’s new trial motions for juror misconduct about the juror married to a DOJ person, or something like that. I smell reversal. But, she is a leopard who isn’t going to change her blue DNC spots. Sorry Sidney, he hired you too late.

      Do something Barr then you have reason to complain about your “impossible” job. One negative about Trump, he sure knows how to pick lu-lu’s. Trump keeps sending “boys” to the Mill.

    I think Roger Stone is a narcissistic Attention Whore and it’s his own damned fault that he’s in the predicament he’s in. The guy desperately wanted to be thought of as a player and because of that and his big stupid mouth he’s in a lot more hot water than he anticipated. Of course the sentencing proposal was utterly ridiculous and WAY out of line, but the bottom line for me is that Roger Stone has probably been lapping up a lot of this nonsense but hasn’t served the best interests of the POTUS AT ALL.

  24. AG Bill Barr should do his thing and Trump should do his thing!

    However, AG Bill Barr needs to understand that he works for Trump. We have 3 branches of OUR federal government, NOT 4.

    A person should never tell their boss what to do or how to act unless the boss asks for their opinion.

    There was absolutely no reason for Barr to do this. None! If the tweets bothered him that much, he should have been mature enough to speak to President Trump in private … man to man. Instead he airs his dirty laundry in public … and he’s not stupid. He knows that a comment like this is going to send the left into a frenzy. And still there will be those who say “Trust the plan. Trust Barr.” Well, I for one, don’t trust him anymore. Not any farther than I can throw him … and considering his considerable bulk, that ain’t far. Maybe if he got off his fat a*se and started prosecuting some of the coup plotters who are walking around scott free, perhaps he might regain some credibility. Perhaps.

    What a quaint legal system, where trials go on and prosecutions are investigated while the President is proclaiming in advance guilt or innocence.

        In any case, a system that allows Prosecutors to speak to the press before and during a trial is beyond fixing.

  31. I am not totally sure about Barr’s intent today, but it gave me an opening to shoot off another email to the Just Us Department. The left is putting pressure on Barr, so we need to make sure that he feels the heat from our side as well. Don’t need him getting squishy on us.

    Dear Attorney General Barr,

    We understand that certain tweets may make your job more difficult. However, your choice of words used today is quite rich and ironic. You stated that the President’s tweets are making your job impossible, when it is the actions of a rogue FBI and DOJ that has made the President’s job impossible for the past 3 years.

    Until somebody, anybody, is held accountable at the FBI or DOJ for the criminal actions taken against this President, half of America is going to consider that you personally are part of the cover up effort. The facts that there has been no accountability to date speaks volumes to the American people.

    And yes, the right to petition my government is protected by the first amendment.

    Sincerely,
    _____________________

    Barr setting dates into the future is just a way to string things out so people forget!

    That there have been zero leaks about Durham reminds me of the zero leaks from Huber!

    It seems obvious Barr is doing nothing because there have been no leaks!

    If you are doing nothing, then there is nothing to leak!

    Because I’m not a fan of all of Trump’s tweets I actually get what Barr is saying. Barr has to toe a very firm legal line. Some of Trump’s tweets make it difficult for him to do that. That’s all. Yes we like Trump’s honesty but there’s so much at stake right now he can actually cause some serious problems with that honesty.

    I still love him though. 🙂

    It’s all smoke and mirrors! You don’t think Trump and Barr already had that conversation prior to Barr doing the interview? Notice Trump wasn’t offended by Barr’s comments as noted by the WH’s response? Now ALL of the liberal media (even Fox News) and pundits are in an uproar. A pseudo event designed to distract!!! Nothing Trump does or has been doing is by accident. Trump has been tweeting about DOJ/FBI garbage since he took office (Comey, McCabe et al, Flynn, Stone, Manafort, corrupt judges, Mueller and the angry Democrat prosecutors, etc,, etc., etc.)!!!! Why all of a sudden is this one tweet bothersome to Barr? It doesn’t make any sense to me other than it’s all smoke and mirrors! I’ll eat some crow if I’m wrong.

    I agree with sundance about the MS media being the main pressure cooker for Barr but I also wonder if the Trump tweets have created serious divisions and tensions within the DOJ and Barr is being pressured in every possible direction. Top to bottom and on all sides as the evidence of wrongdoing in the DOJ is being exposed daily. Jesse Liu might have been very popular within the DOJ and her demise has created serious dissension and Trump’s tweets escalated the anger.

    Barr could be wedged between doing as much as he can to fix the DOJ mess he was left with, including Liu’s 2-tiered abuses, and avoiding a major exodus or revolt within the DOJ. If Barr asked for a meeting with P Trump to “calm his concerns,” it would’ve involved personally discussing issues around Stone’s politically punitive case and Liu’s questionable actions. If they had, Barr would not have been able to honestly state with confidence in the interview that, “… the President has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case.”.

    The DOJ is a political and legal minefield for any President but if Trump interfered in any way in any case in the age of frivolous House impeachment and mass anti Trump media propaganda it would not go well for him. Obama’s admin got away with it because the MSM covered for them. I just hope Trump knows he’s treading into a serious minefield and knows exactly where every mine is.

    I think the President and Barr are both in tough situations.

    My read is as follow:

    Barr wants to get convictions, and he can’t if his indictments look like he is doing Trump’s bidding.

    Trump cannot see what all Barr and Durham are doing or not doing, and he says what all of us are thinking, and what is obvious to any sane and normal person; and we need to hear from the highest level that he recognizes the wrongs that are being done, and wants justice.

    That conflicts with Barr’s need to appear clean as whistle in order to have his indictments be something more than another political mudwrestling contest. He wants to show pure criminal activity without the taint of political influence or bias.

    It is tough for both of them. But Barr needs to get on the stick and bring this to resolution.

    I read Barr’s frustration as his commitment to getting future results.

    Let’s recount what Barr has done:

    ~He brought the Mueller investigation to an end.
    ~He forced a clear exoneration of Trump and campaign members on collusion
    ~He interceded in the Mueller team’s effort to create obstruction by opining that Trump’s conduct did not amount to obstruction.
    ~He refused to release Grand Jury material
    ~He fought Congress on Grand Jury material, and will continue to the Supreme Court
    ~He stated that Horowitz didn’t have the information to conclude the investigation was properly predicated.
    ~He stated that there were too many things in the wrong direction to rule out improper motives.
    ~He stated that Trump’s actions on the Ukraine call could not be considered criminal.
    ~He has now interceded in the Stone case.
    ~He got Liu out of Justice (Trump got her out of Treasury).
    ~Certain people have left the Flynn case.

    We are still unsatisfied on the big coup, but I think we are headed for indictments. I hope I’m right. I can’t say for sure, but Barr is acting like a man on a mission who wants to succeed.

    He could have been more artful, and he could have acknowledged everyone’s rightful frustration with everything, including the Stone case. He didn’t and that worries me.

    I’m not sure, but more evidence weighs on the side of Barr trying to get the bad guys and have it stick.

    Predictions are hard, especially about the future.

    Yeah, I don’t have any time for someone who has lived and worked this long DC and still pretends not to understand how corrupt the DC beltway is. To me that’s just the icing on the cake. We already know Barr would never have been confirmed by the Senate if they didn’t believe he was no threat to them, but this interview is the clincher. He’s nothing but pure deep state. Anything that “looks” different is just smoke and mirrors for the cameras to try to keep the “rubes” in flyover country confused.

    I can see what Barr is saying insofar as what is known as “command influence” is concerned. Impartial justice, or at least the appearance of it, can be compromised if the commander makes prejudicial public statements. For example, when President Obama publicly stated his desired outcome for the Hillary Clinton email investigation and then a few months later James Comey announced findings that were almost verbatim what Obama said.

    The politic answer for a President to give is “the case is ongoing and I trust the professionalism of our investigators to arrive at a fair impartial just conclusion.” Although President Trump has been waiting for years and after repeated disappointments I think he’s entitled to coach the AG.

      Trump’s camp sign manager going to prison for 9 yrs while the real asses don’t even get prosecuted: does one think Trump has strong, private feelings on the matter?

      Clearly, yes. This, one can intuit that Trump does not LIKE what he sees. Any subordinate can divine that if he thinks in such a fashion.

      That Trump states it publicly doesn’t change ANYTHING for an honorable subordinate.

      As far as command influence, Barr does not have a career progression at stake. An executive officer does.

    Regardless of what AG Barr has or has not done in the past, he DID say it was impossible to do his job. He said impossible – it was not PDJT. Because of all the furor caused in TCTH and in Deplorable Land, imho AG Barr should clarify his statement by noon tomorrow.

    If he “really” believes it is impossible to do his job because of the President’s tweets, he should submit his resignation by the close of business tomorrow.

    Today I decided to look on the positive side no matter what happens. It’s a struggle. So, Barr is worried about the tweets. Maybe he is beacause PJT has been tweeting about indicting several coup plotters, and Barr doesn’t want it to come across that Trump’s tweets had any influence on the indictments he finally hands down. And he wants the left to think he is upset with PDT and not on good terms. Maybe he thinks they might back off a bit. Ok, YOU try to spend a day thinking on the,positive side of things!

    Sorry, Barr, but your integrity remains intact regardless of what tweets issue forth. To say your job is impossible due to tweets is a major detractoon from your judgment. You have opened your mind such that we can peer in. I do not like what I see.

    What I see is an unhealthy concern for public perception and a wavering spine. A proper military commander would say “damn the perception, I have my honor, and I will exercise it ruthlessly for the good and just”.

    Barr says, “Crap! Now what do I do? The right thing?”
