WaPo Report: AG Bill Barr Threatens to Quit…

First, the “report” comes from the pathetic beltway crowd of journolist narrative engineers; so there’s likely little-to-no substance to the construct.  However, that said, if Bill Barr is so weak, pathetic and incapable of doing his job, that he needs to threaten to resign if President Trump tweets his opinion, then Barr is in the wrong profession.

…Unless, of course, President Trump’s pressure on Bill Barr is actually forcing the Attorney General to do something the AG is predisposed not to undertake.  Which, given the background history of Bill Barr, is also entirely possible.

Right around this moment-in-time is where a multitude of mutually aligned beltway quisling pundits will declare that Bill Barr’s delicate sensibilities are being wounded by a President who demands forceful accountability; ie. traditional DC republican pundits [insert Laura Ingraham and Max Boot here].

The bottom line is President Trump is doing absolutely nothing to impede Bill Barr from doing his job; if the U.S. Attorney General is factually intent on doing that job.

Ever since he assumed office the Attorney General has been praising the likes of Rod Rosenstein, Robert Mueller and Christopher Wray.  Given the nature of what is widely available in review, that level of logical disconnect is not representative of an individual who possesses reasonable judgement in the quest for deliberate justice…. just sayin’.

So until Bill Barr actually man’s-up and does something with the authority he has requested, the image of Bondo Barr attempting to cover-up the rot and wrongdoing while surrounded by visible and overwhelming corruption; and pontificating about “constitutional norms”; is a more apt descriptive.

President Trump has been victimized by the same institutions AG Bill Barr is now in charge of.  So forgive me if I don’t impart sympathy upon a person who is in charge of those institutions, whining about background noise, and seemingly incapable of addressing the abuse unless all of the planets are aligned to provide him the quiet atmosphere he requires while thumbing through the final chapters of his indulgent memoirs over a glass of chardonnay.

Suck it up cupcake.

When you get all done with that, there’s still a job to do.

The WaPo: -Attorney General William P. Barr has told people close to President Trump — both inside and outside the White House — that he is considering quitting over Trump’s tweets about Justice Department investigations, three administration officials said, foreshadowing a possible confrontation between the president and his attorney general over the independence of the Justice Department.

So far, Trump has defied Barr’s requests, both public and private, to keep quiet on matters of federal law enforcement. It was not immediately clear Tuesday whether Barr had made his posture known directly to Trump. The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations.

“He has his limits,” said one person familiar with Barr’s thinking. (read more)

The problem facing Bill Barr is his own inability to deal with the issues within his own authority.

It was not President Trump that caused four underlings to defy Barr’s authority and set-up the attorney general with the image of a rogue DOJ lacking leadership and direction.  That issue was the direct result of Barr’s own inability to cut-out political corruption on his first days, weeks, months and year as the head of the agency.

No doubt several Bush-Republicans will stand quickly in defense of the psychologically wounded soldier sitting in the tent crying he just can’t take the sound of the thunder any longer.  And yes, President Trump is likely to be Pattonesque in removing his helmet, slapping the feeble-minded fool and demanding he get back in the fight…. after all:

TRUMP […] …yeah, I do make his job harder. I do agree with that. I think that’s true. He’s a very straight shooter. We have a great Attorney General, and he’s working very hard. And he’s working against a lot of people that don’t want to see good things happen, in my opinion. That’s my opinion, not his opinion. That’s my opinion. You’ll have to ask what his opinion is.

But I will say this: Social media, for me, has been very important because it gives me a voice, because I don’t get that voice in the press. In the media, I don’t get that voice. So I’m allowed to have a voice…. (more)

Now, go make me a sandwich – and tell the Attorney General to bring me a Diet Coke.

President Trump is an apex predator.  A genuine titan; not a politician.

President Trumps’ frames of reference are far larger than the irrelevant opinion of politicians who have never accomplished anything in their lives beyond self-indulgence.

This is the first time a seemingly larger predator has survived the piranha biting and small-minded scheming amid the swamp; and then stood up to squish them in the aftermath…. What we are seeing now is fear; genuine DC fear.

When Bill Barr said on ABC that President Trump’s tweets were difficult for him, in essence he showcased just how weak, pathetic and politically-minded he is.

Barr’s job is the same with or without President Trump expressing opinion on the visible DOJ and FBI corruption.  The president is simply reflecting outrage felt by a significant portion of the electorate.   It was a mistake for Barr to start whining about the issue, not because of anything Trump, but more specifically because Barr showed weakness within the same fishbowl he is supposed to control.

In the aftermath of a failed coup, powerful interests in DC now understand President Trump is strong; he’s dangerous. And those same voices in DC now see Bill Barr publicly admitting how weak and pathetic he is.

Those who dispatch and coordinate the narrative engineering, the piranhas per se’, know that once they can identify weakness they will exploit it to achieve their beltway objectives.

If the reporting is accurate, Bill Barr is pathetic; and that weakness simply highlights a likelihood his purpose was never to deal with corrupt issues in the first place.  Let us hope the reporting is inaccurate.

          I called this weeks ago. Barr thought there was some overzealous FBI agents when he took the job. A little clean up in aisle three. Then he realized there was a coup. Then he realized Mueller and rosenstein were involved. So he decided to stall to figure it out. Durham is another Huber. Barr realizes he is in over his head. He can’t fix it or he is out of the Washington club. POTUS is not letting him stall anymore. So Barr wants to get fired. But POTUS refuses. He is going to tweet to force him to deal with it or quit.

            This, all of this is utterly stupid gaslighting. AG Barr is not a lightweight of any sort. He is the attorney general who stopped the Mueller investigation in its tracks and whacked Weismann who tried to put up an obstruction case based on wild theories. How soon they forget; it’s been all of the year with AG Barr in the role.

            Now we have the other main issue at hand which is follow the attorneys advice or not but the risk is inherent with any good lawyer advising a client everyone knows a good lawyer always says do not discuss the case, it’s a rule of thumb.

            Does any anyone think that Judge Amy Berman is going to give a shorter sentence to Roger Stone because the president said that his case is unfair? Really?

            Who do you think would take over as Attorney General before the election and do all the things that you demand be done yesterday? Unbelievably stupid. The Senate won’t even conduct a hearing For a replacement.

            How did that work out again with “white hat” Rod Rosenstein as declared here back then.

            Or, this is the run up to Impeachment by Obstruction of Justus, part 3. “PDJT makes it impossible for the right Honorable William Barr to do his job.”

            “If that isn’t the very definition of Obstruction of Justus, I don’t know what IS!”

            “HE (PDJT) is personally interfering in cases of his cronies, who HAVE been found guilty of serious crimes, pressuring the AG for reduced sentences, and publically commented on ongoing cases.”

            “It was SO bad, 4 Federal prosecutors quit, because they felt they could no longer do their jobs!” (They have agreed to testify, at House Impeachment hearing.)

            “The President has even publically threatened to personally take over control of the DOJ, and asserted he has the legal right to. An absurd claim disputed by Constitutional lawyers we contacted. If he were to do this, he would no doubt exhonerate his cronies, and use the FBI/DOJ to target his political enemies!”

            “No one is above the law, not even the POTUS!”

            Here,we go, again! And McConnells statement, soon after Barrs, was to support Barr, and the silly notion Barr put forth.

            Because he and the Republicons are the man behind the curtain for this neverending coup attempt, and Nanzi is the big head with lightening bolts,…

              Unless or Until PDJT says he has no faith in Barr, then I trust Barr 100%. At the “Epic” Tarmac Presser yesterday, what did PDJT say:

              “Q Do you have confidence in your Attorney General? First —
              THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, I have total confidence in my Attorney General.”

              Interim? Resigning? Please.

              If they go down impeachment row again, based on Obstruction for interfering in the Stone case, or any other case, then they open themselves up to scrutiny that they can’t handle, because they can’t explain the difference between Stone’s proposed sentence and the disposition of McCabe’s and Wolfe’s cases. (because of TDS they just see the headline: “Trump/Barr Interfere in Administration of Justice!”, not the substance behind the headlne)

              They are stuck. And they know it. They are flailing, and don’t know what else to do but to make noise, which causes distraction and creates flurries of doubt and mistrust.

              How many Treepers on here immediately believed a WaPo headline? Really? At this point? Why are we even discussing this with any sincerity.

              They can’t complain too loudly about the outside AUSA’s coming in to review these cases either, because then they have to reconcile the Collyer and Boasberg (sp?) reports about the fraud at the FISC.

        Kerri Kupec saying that the AG has no plans to resign means nothing other than it’s most likely an attempt to slow down the rumors. “No plans to resign” usually means that the person hasn’t written a resignation letter yet, but it does not mean they aren’t about to. Am I saying that Barr will resign? No, of course not. We don’t know what he will do, but my guess is that the leak that he’s considering resigning is an attempt to try to scare Trump into being quiet. To that I say, “Good luck, Mr AG. This is a president that is only quiet when he chooses to be quies, not when someone tells him to be.”

        It will be interesting to see what happens, but the AG may very well have backed himself into a corner.

          If we had any REAL reporters, they would play the clip of NUNES, on Fox, 24 hours BEFORE PDJT’s tweet, saying EXACTLY the SAME THING, and ask him if having the Ranking membervog the HIPSCI say the SAME thing as the POTUS tweeted, is,also making it difficult to do his job?

          Then, point out that BOTH the cases that Nunes and POTUS were commenting on, had ALREADY BEEN ADJUDICATED. They were NOT pending or ongoing trials. Guilty verdicts had already been rendered.
          So, WHAT EXACTLY, Mr. Barr, is inappropriate about the President, or ranking member of HIPSCI,, or ANYONE ELSE commenting on a case, once the verdict is rendered?

          And, Mr. Barr, was it the commentary on Mr. Stones case and sentence, OR Mr. Wolfes case and sentence, or the seeming disparity that makes it “impossible for you to do your job?”

          And, since we are ON the topic, exactly WHY did Mr. Wolfe get 2 months, for leaking highly classified info to reporters, including the 83 page Carter Page Fisa warrant, to a reporter he was sleeping with?

          “Isn’t it true Mr. Wolfes attorney filed papers, indicating that he intended to call Senators on SSCI if the case went to trial?”

              You make a common argument, often made to defend Sessions as well.

              “If you trust PDJT, than you must trust Sessions, now Barr” is the essence of it.
              And, the corrollary that some have suggested, that expressing doubts about sessions now barr, is expressing a lack of faith or trust in PDJT.

              I suggest this is a false argument. Many here have expressed negative feelings about voting for Pence, in 2024.

              And yet, PDJT selected Pence as his VP, to be ‘a heartbeat away’ from POTUS.

              Many have doubts about Pompeo.

              PDJT has campaigned with, and sung the praises of Mitch McConnell.

              Its called POLITICS, and in the past many Presidents have publically expressed support for a cabinet officer, even as that same cabinet officer was quietly being shown the door.

              Point I am trying to make is it is a false argument, that expressing doubts about Barr equates to expressing doubts about Barr.
              It denies the reality of the so called “confirmation process”, and the nature of how things,work in D.C.

              So, you can wait till PDJT Publically withdraws his support from Barr; we’re all just expressing opinions here.

              But, to make that argument, logically means you must have total confidence in Mitch McConnell, who A) confirmed Barr, and B) who PDJT has also recently praised.

                Mitch McConnell has gotten 2 Supreme Court Justices confirmed. He has confirmed hundreds of federal judiciary slots. He kept witnesses from being called in the Impeachment. He lead the acquittal of PDJT.

                Barr has traveled to Italy to either interview Mifsud, or listen to the audio recording he made for his attorney. Barr has appointed Durham. And even the British have said that it appears he wants to tear down the intelligence services. Barr has appointed Jensen to review the Flynn case, pursuant to the FISC order.

                Barr has also been in office for only 1 year, and most of that time has probably been used to figure out who is who and what is what.

                You can blame Sessions all you want. I blame the Swamp. He had no idea the viper’s nest he was walking in to, and had no idea that he was set up. How could he know? No one was supposed to know, because PDJT wasn’t supposed to win. Stop blaming Sessions. He is a good soldier who got whacked from behind before he ever knew what was happening. Blaming Sessions would be like blaming Flynn for being such a dolt as to trust two FBI agents who said they wanted to come by for a chat.

                All of you guys who are clamoring for ACTION – how easy it is to be an armchair warrior without having to weigh the balance of the future of America on almost every decision you make. Cut these guys some slack. No one has EVER had to navigate these waters. There is no road map. Clearly you see things differently than I do, imagine what it’s like in the White House? When they must make decisions, and those decisions have consequences. Speed is not the goal, but rather precision.

                I hate long posts, but I have to mention THIS TOO: for all those who are calling for the burning down of the FBI because it is too corrupt to continue, let me ask…how far back does that corruption go? 5 years? 10 years? Forever? Pick a year, it doesn’t matter what year, just pick one. OK, now, imagine every case from that date until today that was impacted by the FBI. Every criminal case in which an agent testified, either at the federal level or the state level. And kiss those cases goodbye. Every single defendant will appeal, and say, “SEE! It was the corrupt FBI, not me!” And boom, the judiciary in every state, and in every jurisdiction just got their asses handed to them with a flood of lawsuits and emergency appeals. What about the defendant’s that have been put to death based on FBI testimony or evidence. Can their families or estates now sue the US gov’t for wrongful death?

                Think, please.

                I have faith in most things that Trump does because I trust him to do what he thinks is right for the country — he’s been a powerful force for good when we’ve needed it the most. But I also recognize that he has a vulnerability: his personnel selection. Let’s face it, whoever has been advising him on personnel has been less than helpful to the President; to wit these appointments have been awful: Sessions, Tillerson, Shulkin, Mattis, Bolton, McMaster, Kelly, Scaramucci, and there are many more that can be added to the list. But regardless of whose advice he’s been taking, Trump’s appointments are ultimately his responsibility; for as HST’s famous sign on the desk in the Oval Office read, “The buck stops here.” My prayer is that before he continues with the ominous job of draining The Swamp, he cleans out the White House. It seems clear there are a lot of strap-hangers who need to go.

            This whole thing about Barr resigning is narrative construction from our side. Just a couple of days/weeks ago the MSM were complaining because Barr was acting too much like PDJT’s personal attorney. NOW, he wants to resign? It’s rope-a-dope. The MSM will get a crick in the neck from whiplash: wingman to resigning in less than a week?!

            Barr isn’t resigning. But by putting this out there we get a bunch of headlines about Barr resigning, can’t do his job, PDJT is interfering, etc.

            No one is talking about Barr being his wingman now…right? I think that was the point.

      Like many older Americans, Barr can’t grasp how far Left the younger generation of Americans have drifted. (You’d think the communist Bernie leading the Democrat Presidential polls would supply Bondo Bill with a clue.)

      Barr must have started with a series of wrong assumptions; that the Russian Collusion hoax started from solid evidence, that the fanatical persecution of President Trump and his people by DOJ officials was just over-zealous hard workers who meant well, and that he (Barr) could talk to his wayward staff members and straighten them out.

      Instead, Barr found himself struggling to hold closed a closet stuffed with leftist honey badgers. No wonder he wants to just go home.

      Sessions was never the right man for the job: they broke him within days. If Barr has been broken, let him at least, before he runs away, describe what steps the next man should take to put out the fire. Then tell Barr he can’t leave, we can’t spare him, and get to work on all the changes he knows are required.

        Remember, all of this uproar started with POTUS pointing out that the corrupt DOJ was attempting to run a coup on BB by recommending 7-9 years on simpleton Roger Stone, when they had already given their corrupt “friend” Robert Wolfe a pass with drastically reduced charges, and only 2 months, when his real crime was sending 82 separate text message photos, one for every page, from a SCIF, of the Carter Page CLASSIFIED/TOP SECRET/CONFIDENTIAL FISA application.

          Ugh, yes, I’m so sick of them praising Barr, when he’s doing NOTHING to clean this up (and is only protecting the coup plotter). I’ve stopped watching all of FOX b/c I can’t stand it anymore, but back when I did watch, the only ones who seemed in any way skeptical/suspicious of Barr were Judge Jeanine and Lou Dobbs. Judge Jeanine seemed suspicious b/c of the lack of anything happening to the coup plotters. And Dobbs also seemed to be getting impatient, but then he would have Toensing and DiGenova on, and they would assure him that Barr is a great man and he’ll clean this up–Dobbs even directly stated that the only reason he had any hope was because the two of them continued to vouch for him.

          Now, I thought there was a post on here a while back about Nunes filing a lawsuit, where Sundance made a comment about this showing Nunes was giving up on the DOJ, which was why he was filing his own lawsuit. But I haven’t been able to find that (comment from Sundance), so perhaps I’m wrong about that. But I was sort of holding on to that as evidence that at least one guy (Nunes) was seeing Barr for what he really is: a deep state coverup artist.

            I think PDJT and company are evaluating the cast of 2020 Democrat contenders, to see if there is any real threat. Since there doesn’t appear to be a threat, and in fact, they seem to be cannibalizing their own party, it makes more sense to drop the hammer AFTER the election. PDJT will have all the barrels loaded and ready for the Democrat/MSM attempt at an October surprise, so they are not caught unawares, but otherwise, the indictments come AFTER the election.

            If they come before, the press will control the narrative as retribution, as interference, as illegitimate, as anything other than what it should be seen for, which is corrupt sedition.

      Day:
      Mass firings would set off the Demon Rats, but the DOJ could be made an unpleasant place to work, in a hundred small ways, to inspire an big uptick in turnover. There must be consultants in the private sector who know how to do this and avoid expensive layoffs.

      Decentralizing the federal bureaucracy remains as a close to a panacea as I can imagine. Many will quit rather than move: Hallelujah!

      Surely Barr has tried it the easy way – persuasion and reason, now comes the hard way. Enough 🥕 for you Dobbin, now comes a big 🏏.

    As I recall with Kelly, Mattis and McMaster, among others, all the claims of resignations/firings were denied up until they happened. that’s just the way these things usually work.

    It is entirely understandable that Barr is so reluctant to challenge the organizational structure of DOJ. After all, its where he’s spent most of his career. Nonetheless, it is abundantly clear that the level of corruption not only runs deep but has been in existence for a very long time. Trump has exposed the entire federal “apparat” for what it is and has made it impossible for the DOJ apparatchiks to hide.

    We are at a historically important moment, something that we may never see again. This is an incredibly uncomfortable time for Barr who obviously would prefer to maintain the pretense that the DOJ is functioning as it should. The problem is it isn’t functioning as it should and now everyone in the entire world has a ring-side seat.

    Because of the failed soft-coup against the president, the DOJ is in organizational free-fall. The surprise Stone sentence is a perfect example of the hidden-agenda gate-keepers poking their thumb in Barr’s eye. What happens next is gong to require a very strong man, someone the equal of our president, to make the necessary corrections to get DOJ to a point where it is again serving the American people. Right now it is in open revolt against the American people.. We live in interesting times.

    ““He has his limits,” said one person familiar with Barr’s thinking.”

    Oh dear. I guess we shouldn’t expect him to hear our limits with corruption in our federal agencies, specifically in the DOJ and FBI.

    As I commented in the other thread, why would Barr think there might be corruption in FISA, in targeting Flynn or POTUS, but NOT corruption involved in prosecuting and sentencing Stone?
    If he is asking other US Attorneys to investigate, is he spreading the misery? If he spreads the knowledge of the details of corruption, wouldn’t that make it harder to cover up? Is he spreading the misery to insulate himself from attacks by those in Congress who like the swamp? Yeah, you can take out one man, but there are others working on these issues?

    Or is he insulating himself from criticism?

      Personally, I don’t think Barr ever thought he’d be held in contempt by Congress & now threatened w/impeachment and inherit a legal staff that was this corrupt.

      He may have honestly thought Rosenstein did a good job, until he & Durham started nosing around. He may not be happy about what happened to Jessie Liu & could be aggravated that Pres. Trump withdrew her nomination to Treasury.

      TBS, suck it up & clean up your staff. Review the Mueller cases, work w/Republicans to straighten out the FISA process or can it altogether.

    I’ve believed for a long time in the theory that if Barr is going to actually do anything, he needs to have his ducks perfectly in line and his t’s perfectly crossed when he does, because the targets will unleash holy hell in reply.

    That said…time is short. By July political conventions will restrain initiating any legal action.

    Final thought — I don’t understand why Barr and Trump have not had a substantive discussion about the corruption and the need to expose it and assess accountability. That is, that Barr has not communicated to the President that he fully intend to clean the Augean Stables. My worry is that such a conversation, if it had happened, would have obviated the need for Trump to tweet anything…or for Barr to comment on his tweeting.

    I truly fear that SDs concerns and worries may be too well founded. If so…..then the Republic is closer to the precipice than many of our worst fears.

    Fake news? Apply the Bongino rule and wait 24 hours before reacting. I prefer to think that Barr was projecting after being caught with his pants down by those 4 traitorous prosecutors. Yes, Bill, it smarts. Barr is probably stunned by how intrenched and dangerous the Swamp is, even for an alumnus such as himself. Barr is facing his Rubicon; he should either cross the damned thing and do what is right for the nation, or go home. As much as I like Harvey Keitel, we don’t need a Pulp Fiction-like cleaner. Damn the institutions! Save the Republic!

Educating folks to vote true conservative is a drip drip process as is true justice if Durham is legitimate, this is a huge case that spreads its tentacles far and wide.

    Drip by drip by drip. I remember asking myself when is Trump going to fire Sessions? Days turned into weeks into months into years. How long is this going to go on I wondered. I kept asking is it going to be this month, or that month? Or is Sessions going to redeem himself by doing his job? Many of you felt the same. It just went on and on. It felt interminable.

    Now it’s deja vu (all over again). For a second time it is becoming obvious we are in the same situation with Bill Barr. He too may not be the man for the job. Again I’m asking myself is Barr going to redeem himself? Or is it going to be that President Trump effectively spend his whole term in office without an AG, with the DOJ being run by faceless bureaucrats?

    Hmmmm… if BB is a quisling and a plant, then who exactly conned Trump into hiring him in the first place, especially after being burned by the keebler elf….. I think it is obvious that Trump doesn’t trust Graham. I think Trump and turtle have a symbiotic relationship in that the turtle enjoys confirming Trumps court picks, but other than that, I don’t think Trump would trust advice from him.. Who could have convinced Trump (if he is so smart) that it would be such a good idea to hire another d.c. insider instead of maybe sending Rudy outside of the beltway to bring in a new apple since the barrel he had to pick from was obviously rotted.. (yes, an untouchables reference)…. I can’t think of anyone that I could imagine Trump would trust would would make such a recommendation.. eg. Sekulow or Gingrich…

      The President is a warrior army of one, and he is on an island.

      Barr’s job is the same with or without President Trump expressing opinion on the visible DOJ and FBI corruption. The president is simply reflecting outrage felt by a significant portion of the electorate. It was a mistake for Barr to start whining about the issue, not because of anything Trump, but more specifically because Barr showed weakness within the same fishbowl he is supposed to control.”

    Bill Barr is doing the Jeff Sessions two step of appointing prosecuto to look into things to placate Trump, knowing full well those investigations will drag along and produce nothing.

    Barr will be gone by June If he doesn’t have anything to show for these two years. Trump expects results and right now Bill Barr has deliver precious few things besides tough talk occasionally in front of Congress and in some media interviews.

    His time is coming up as Trump turns on the heat so now he starts to complain about tweets. One day Trump will finally get the AG he deserves that will drain the swamp. But until then, you people like Barr and Wray that are protecting the swamp and trying to run out the clock on the statue of limitations ala Jeff Sessions.
