Bill Barr Goes Rogue – DOJ Asks Congress to Expand Legal Authorities to Circumvent Pesky Civil Liberties…

The Deep State is playing COVID-19 perfectly.  With the intention to create/instill extra fears amid center-right Americans; and timed to emphasize the center-left narrative of authoritarian Trump; U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr steps in to execute his role.

U.S. AG Bill Barr asks legislators to empower him with more legal authority to take actions within the justice department amid the crisis known as the 2020 Coronavirus pandemic.

(Via Politico) The Justice Department has quietly asked Congress for the ability to ask chief judges to detain people indefinitely without trial during emergencies — part of a push for new powers that comes as the coronavirus spreads through the United States.

Documents reviewed by POLITICO detail the department’s requests to lawmakers on a host of topics, including the statute of limitations, asylum and the way court hearings are conducted.

[…] The DOJ requests — which are unlikely to make it through a Democratic-led House — span several stages of the legal process, from initial arrest to how cases are processed and investigated.

In one of the documents, the department proposed that Congress grant the attorney general power to ask the chief judge of any district court to pause court proceedings “whenever the district court is fully or partially closed by virtue of any natural disaster, civil disobedience, or other emergency situation.” (read more)

Perfectly timed to ignite a week before AG Barr goes before the House Judiciary Committee for testimony March 31st.  Strong execution game by the deep state.

Democrats will position themselves a pearl-clutching civil libertarians, and AG Barr will respond by framing the Trump administration as authoritarian.  Everyone has a role to play in the political framework and purposing of COVID-19 as a snowball rolling downhill gathering speed…

The state is operating to protect itself, by any means necessary.

    Devin Nunes, does not seem Naive to me. He seems to Trust Barr.

    But, yeah I kinda agree, it is pretty hard to keep the faith with 0 coup plotters indicted.

    However if Barr was truly dispicable, the MuleFace report would have led to Impeachement. SAdly I think half the trouble is the justUs Department is full of, otherwise intelligent people, but with the insight of, inorganic mass. They seem incapable of viewing their own peers as possibly, under any circumstances, being infallable, or Gasp… Corrupt. Remarkable that they can entertain these aspertions about the Chief of the executive, but, not about any other members of the executive.

    The Former Head of organised crime, thought he Could Turn Deripaska ( a PAtriot, as Russian as Vodka), while at the same time beliving Trump ( a Patriot, as American as Apple Pie) had been turned. Or ELSE, Ohr, and his like, were not acting with pure motives. But the usual mechanisms( OIG, etc) have proved useless at determining corrupt motive. Who knows, maybe a suspension of Habeas Corpusis is required to make the rats start squealing. The time for worrying about how things look politically is well past anyway.

      The ONLY right that can be delayed during an emergency is a speedy trial. The right to keep and bear arms? NO!!

      Article 1, Section 9 of the US Constitution states, “The privilege of the writ of habeas corpus shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it.”

      This happened during Hurricane Katrina. Sheriff officers threatened arrest to boaters who did not turn over their firearms. When the case went to the Supreme Court it was ruled that even during an emergency you do not lose your rights. This case is applied to the right to assemble, speech and all of your other enumerated, and non enumerated rights including travel. The ONLY right that can be delayed is a speedy trial.

      Trump needs to use the DOJ civil rights division tell these out of control, tyrannical, governors stripping people of their rights, that their job is to protect your rights. He can use the “Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order.” act to restore US peoples rights through proper enforcement of laws.

      Laws protect rights, and laws that violate rights are unconstitutional and tyrannical.

    • With respect for free speech,
      Could we please not pollute comments here with Qanon stuff?
      Especially when its OT- thats just rude, and violates TLRs excellent posting guidelines.

      Anyone who wants to follow that Q stuff knows where to find it.

      I believe long-time readers here understand Q has discredited, and any back and forth here on anything Q-related just gets in the way of more useful – rational – based on open-source with proof analysis by TLR.
      One might say continued Q comments are trolling, if thats the agreed policy here…

    “Never let a crisis go to waste”, right? Ah, but wait…this article came from Politico…hold on, now.
    The idea seems to be to try to address the problems of staffing and deadlines during a “declared” emergency. So, you’ve got an office of lawyers which is staffed to meet a certain workload and time schedules….Now your office is quaranteened….there’s only so much you can do from home….files, papers, etc. may be legally confined to the premises of the prosecuters office. What to do? How a bought asking the judge to call a time out until the quaranteen is lifted?
    Coming from Politico, see how they spun the story to make democrats the civil libertarians? I don’t trust either the Politico, the Deep State, Barr, or anybody.

    Barr is protecting the Deep State, and placating Trump supporters in an effort to calm our Rage. I also think there is a good chance he is plotting the Plan B Impeachment if Plan A fails and he is re-elected.

      WILLIAMS: You, of course, went to three countries with him (John Durham). Why did you have to do that? And some people have said, well, this is clearly Bill Barr’s in charge of the investigation.

      BARR: Well, the presentation of that in the media has been silly. The person running the investigation is John Durham. But this is a very unusual circumstance where we are going to foreign government and asking them to assist and cooperate, including, you know, some of their sensitive materials and — and personnel.

      And a U.S. attorney doesn’t show up on the doorstep in — in some of these countries like London and say, hey, I want to talk to your intelligence people and so forth. All the regularities were followed.

Is this going to be a criminal case? Are you going to, you know, do a public report? They wanted to understand the ground rules before they met with Durham. And I met with them. And then I set up appropriate channels. This was perfectly appropriate.

    Yes , the logical steps would be to investigate and indict these DOJ scum that served Obama’s wishes like trained dogs. Problem is the rot is deep and they almost all being lawyers and have their “brotherhood” of deep state rats watching their six… the likelihood of anything coming from this is naught. They play the game of obfuscation and hide and seek with the very incriminating data they created in their doings. They control the chessboard and are smug – in your face about it. Short of what Barr is asking for , if it is to combat these deep state dogs there is no chance of the system they have in place used against itself. They know this. Any threat against them is just a waiting game for the hope of their chosen puppet getting the presidency . Maybe if I were a gambling man I’d wager in another 4 year term of Trump he will take the gloves off and put these deep state rats in the guillotine . We can only hope for that justice whilst the D卐M☭CRATz run amok in the goobermint sewers like a covid 19 waiting to kill off more freedoms.

      But Trump has hostile relationships with the Democratic governors of the most affected states — Washington, California and New York. And if he wanted, he could have the CDC step in. Federal regulations give the CDC sweeping powers if a state’s measures “are insufficient” to prevent a disease from spreading into another state. The CDC chief is authorized to do what he or she “deems reasonably necessary” under those circumstances. Whether that includes widespread restrictions on movement is unclear.
