Differing Perspectives: President Trump -vs- AG Bill Barr…

In the summer of 2019 CTH noted: “The problem for Attorney General Bill Barr is not  investigating what we don’t know, but rather navigating through what ‘We The People’ are already aware of.”

Six months later, specifically citing the problem for Bill Barr that Michael Flynn’s prosecution represented, we again cautioned against projecting an altruistic motive toward the AG, because there was more evidence the DOJ priority was institutional preservation than any arbitrary quest for justice.  The problem is BIG:

[…] At the heart of the matter, in the real activity that took place, there was a multi-branch seditious effort to remove President Donald J Trump. From the perspective of those charged with the actual administration of justice – there is no way to put this in front of the American public and have the institutions survive. What we are witnessing is a dance between increasingly narrowing rails and the DOJ trying to find an exit. (more)

With Michael Flynn trapped on the burning roof of a corrupt institution the problem for Barr was how to rescue Flynn without admitting Main Justice and the FBI is on fire.  Fortuitously in January 2020 the FISA Court provided cover, an escape route, for Bill Barr to deal with the problem:

….[LINK] The only way I can see out of this mess; the one crack in the current lock box; is the FISA court order for the DOJ to present the identified downstream consequences from fraud upon the court. The FISC might actually be the ladder truck here. With the DOJ and FBI currently assembling the investigative consequences, ie. the sequestration material, Flynn’s current legal status might be identified as an outcropping of fraud…

That appears to be exactly what happened.

As a result of the January FISC order, in February Bill Barr recruited five U.S. Attorneys to review all of the cases handled by special counsel Robert Mueller {Go Deep}.

The review crosses all judicial venues, and the objective was/is to identify any evidence that was obtained as a result of fraudulently obtained surveillance authorities.

It does not appear coincidental the number of U.S. attorney’s recruited matches the number of targets prosecuted by Robert Mueller’s special counsel team.  It looks like one USAO was assigned to review each prosecution from Mueller’s initial target list.  [Flynn, Manafort, Papadopoulos, Page, and REDACTED]

To address the consequences of fraudulently obtained FISA warrants the DOJ and FBI informed the court they would begin a process to “sequester” all collected evidence from all four FISA warrants. [FISA COURT LINK]

Sequestering the evidence is essentially a search for what investigative material the FISA warrants were used to obtain; ie. the search for the fruit of the poisoned tree; and then a review of all DOJ/FBI cases that may have utilized that investigative material.

In late January the DOJ contacted the FISA court and asked for an extension to the deadline.  The FISA court granted an extension until February 5th [LINK] A week after the deadline expired media started reporting on FIVE newly assigned DOJ lawyers.

One of those DOJ lawyers was USAO Jeff Jensen from Missouri.

Jensen was assigned to review the Flynn case and all of the documents attached to the investigation therein.  It was with this authority and DOJ responsibility that U.S. Attorney Jeff Jensen worked to collect, highlight and release background material.  Ultimately culminating in showing the corrupt FBI activity behind the Flynn prosecution; and the subsequent dropping of charges.

It is important to keep the motives and approach of Main Justice in mind when considering what might come next.

Again, accepting institutional preservation is the ultimate objective, this context is very important because it explains and reconciles why AG Barr keeps praising current FBI Director Wray; and accepting plausible denials from Obama’s primary officials (ex. Yates).

An astute Harry Huffman (commenting) notes this nuanced dance when reviewing the CBS interview of AG Bill Barr:

[Question] “…this all came together really within the last week, based on new evidence?”

Barr: “Right.”

I knew he was going to use Jensen as cover for this action. But his “right” is a direct denial by him that Sidney Powell’s uncovered evidence was definitive, and that Flynn should have been freed last October at the latest (actually, Barr now uses the same words I and others used when it all started: Flynn was incoming National Security Advisor, and had both the right and responsibility to talk with other nations; but we were ignored, even by those on our side who didn’t want to question Barr’s intentions, any more than they did every other traitor who started a “higher loyalty” investigation/persecution of the President).

You waited 7 months, Barr, and you are a liar that it was necessary to have Jensen go over it all again. You are a politician, not a lawman, and a corrupt one at that, with mass treason being ignored.

While the term “liar” is a little harsh; what Harry notes is very correct.  Bill Barr is using Jensen as an excuse to drop the charges against Flynn.  Thereby Barr protects himself from claims of political influence.

The distinction here is important.

Bill Barr could have just dropped the Flynn case and then justified the dropping of the case by outlining what was already well known prior to, and without using, Jensen.  However, if Barr took that approach he would have to explain “the real activity that took place; there was a multi-branch seditious effort to remove President Donald J Trump”; and there’s no-way of doing that while preserving the institutions.  Ergo, use Jeff Jensen and proclaim “…this all came together really within the last week, based on new evidence?”…

Hopefully everyone can see the dynamic at play here.  It is critical to see it; because if you don’t notice the distinction you are setting yourself up for massive disappointment.

I have a habit of saying ‘just call the baby ugly‘, because my nature is to spotlight the brutality of the truth without consideration for the political nuances, airs and graces.  That’s my nature… that outlook skews my perspective because I don’t cotton to spin and all of the various shades of grey when it comes to the administration of justice.

Borrowing from Harry again:

By pretending it was a necessity to wait until Jensen came up with “new evidence”, Barr was/is letting Judge Sullivan off the hook, for not having already freed Flynn, when we all knew long ago that the facts were all on Flynn’s side, yet the judge kept kicking the can down the road and playing along with the corrupt DOJ prosecution (and this, after he had already blown any credibility to judge the case, by blowing up at Flynn in open court and calling him a traitor). Simply, Barr is lying and has been all along: Sidney Powell’s evidence was definitive, and Flynn should have been freed at least 7 months ago.

People need to heed Sundance’s words of warning about Barr’s intentions going forward. Barr hasn’t done anything — including letting go of Flynn — he hasn’t needed to do, to quell the peanut gallery (we who want the truth and nothing but the truth to come out, ASAP).

Again, Barr is playing politics.  Perhaps the specific political game Barr is playing is necessary…. we won’t know until this is all over.   However, the goal needs to be accepted by everyone who is reviewing this saga as it unfolds.  Bill Barr is trying to preserve the institutions of the DOJ and FBI.

That preservation approach implies allowing some very sketchy and corrupt actors to go unpunished,… if they cannot be punished without highlighting the severity of corruption that pre-existed Bill Barr showing up.

…At the heart of the matter, in the real activity that took place, there was a multi-branch seditious effort to remove President Donald J Trump. From the perspective of those charged with the actual administration of justice – there is no way to put this in front of the American public and have the institutions survive. What we are witnessing is a dance between increasingly narrowing rails and the DOJ trying to find an exit….

The wild-card in this dynamic is President Trump; a notorious professional disruptor.  Watch carefully how this plays out and remember President Trump is not wedded to these institutions in the same way Bill Barr is.

Donald Trump was the target; Donald Trump is pissed; President Trump is not a political person by disposition.  President Trump has a unique perspective on this and has no problem throwing a grenade into this situation.

Ultimately, in a very ironic way, the difference between the outlooks of Bill Barr and Donald Trump on these DC institutions is the exact reason why those within the institutions previously targeted candidate Trump.  He has no loyalty to the machine.

Beware the angry righteous man…. with nothing to lose.

President Trump along with a considerable group in congress have the position to keep pushing Bill Barr beyond his comfort zone.  That pressure is not only justified, it is critical.

That won’t be easy with D.C. juries but they can be punished the way they did with Flynn by impoverishing him with legal costs until they plead guilty to something. That’s okay with me as long as they get long enough time in prison to deter anyone else from doing what they did. I am an old guy and for most of my life the FBI was the most admired and trusted agency in the country. I want to cry when I think of what these rotten bastards have done to that trust.

  4. Hmmm... says:

    One fairly interesting point of alignment between AG Barr and President Trump is the focus on Comey. It has been noticeable from the beginning that President Trump has consistently placed what seems to me to be an outsized emphasis on Comey and his role in all of this. I don’t think many here would disagree that McCabe and Brennan seem to be the most evil of all of the gang but it’s Comey that gets a lot of the focus.

    Not that he doesn’t deserve scorn but Comey still does not seem like the worst of the bunch. I have consistently believed that targeting Comey is strategic in that he has the easiest path of the bunch to confess to save his skin. Brennan and McCabe have no option to confess because they are directly implicated but I think Comey has a Nuremberg defense available as his last resort. It seems obvious that targeting Flynn was an order from the top either directly or implied.

    Implicating Comey instead of Yates could also be Barr protecting the DOJ over the FBI but it could easily be a way of inspiring Comey to want to clear up exactly who was behind the Flynn targeting. Whether it came from above Comey or went around him it just seems to me to be highly unlikely that Comey was the genesis of the idea. Too many DOJ people were involved for Comey to want to take all the blame and let the DOJ off the hook.

      I could be wrong, but this whole time I’ve had the gut feeling that Barr and Durham have been playing the long game and finding out who and what everybody’s part in the seditious coup was. If they brought out evidence for Flynn too soon, it might alert people that they were on to them and give them time to try to discredit evidence. Might they just be ready to line them all up and hit them with seditious conspiracy? Could it be that’s why all this is coming out now? He might have been allowing the players to get complacent? Look how bold many of them have gotten, in the last couple of months, with their interviews and tweets. If he would have come right in and released Flynn, everybody and their dog would have called him trumps lapdog. The way it’s played out, everyone in the world knows how Flynn was set up and how evil our government has gotten. The only ones clinging to the “Flynn’s guilty” trope, are the media, lawfare and diehard liberals who couldn’t see real truth if it “poked them in one of their bug eyes”. I’m still holding out hope for Barr and Durham.

    I believe this is the VERY reason Grenell was brought in to help PDT since he possibly thought Barr was going to do it but, for whatever reason (and PDT is most likely aware), Barr cant.
    So what is the next play? Keep going down the list and EXPOSING the Rats–Grenell ORDERS/BLUFFS (how did you like THAT pencilneck?LOL), things get “Declassified/Publicized” therefore “FORCING” Barr to do the “RIGHT THING” based on “NEW EVIDENCE”.
    Not a bad Strategy actually!
    Now Ratcliff gets confirmed who has been CHOMPING AT THE BIT for the Job for a couple of years comes in to Play! Grenell returns to his “Day Job” in Germany which is actually running the largest CIA Outpost in the entire World. Grenell has put in place a TRUSTED, LOYAL “high command” at ODNI for Ratcliff. Grenell tells Ratcliff where the ” REST of the Bodies are Buried” and Ratcliff goes to work to help Barr by DeClassifying/Bluffing, etc more Information/Exposures so the next one of Barr’s “special” guys can then “uncover new evidence” to topple the next Domino. THIS proceeds in an orderly, disruptive but not SO disruptive way until the Election. Dont move TOO fast or TOO obviously because that ONLY gives Shiffface and SanFranNan more “ammo” to use in the Campaign.
    PDT is Re-Elected, Barr stays in place BUT Chris Wray is FIRED on Twitter, Frogmarched out the door IN DISGRACE because SOMEONE found SOMETHING…AGAIN..”new Evidence”.
    Who is to be the new FBI Director? WELCOME BACK RIC GRENELL.

Because politics is in play, Barr gave himself (and maybe Trump) some cover.

He couldn’t very well have said to her that the had evidence months ago. Barr and Trump needed to stay as far away from this as they could. Because it’s very political.

    I remain optimistic because of what has come out and by hearing from others involved that more is coming out, and Trump himself has said that. Again, I have no idea how this plays out but the ball is being moved down the field and that’s a good thing.

    Will Covington and Burling, Flynn’s lawyers at that time, face consequences?

    The Labyrinth.

    This whole Flynn thing was timed. Barr stated (CH Interview) that once Powell filed the motion to change to Innocent, the timeline got accelerated…Jensen got added. Time was pushed to delay due…..what else could it be??

    Grand Juries……it’s the only real explanation. I suspect this investigation into investigators was a grand jury….. I could be wrong. All the documents that got dumped in the past few weeks indicate to me that the GJ was complete. I suspect the Flynn perps(lawyers…DOJ and Covington) are in deep doo doo….and they will be soon perp walked.
    ——
    BARR: We dismissed or are moving to dismiss the charges against General Flynn. At any stage during a proceeding, even after indictment or a conviction or a guilty plea, the Department can move to dismiss the charges if we determine that our standards of prosecution have not been met.

    As you recall, in January, General Flynn moved to withdraw his plea, and also alleged misconduct by the government. And at that time, I asked a very seasoned U.S. attorney, who had spent ten years as an FBI agent and ten years as a career prosecutor, Jeff Jensen, from St. Louis, to come in and take a fresh look at this whole case. And he found some additional material. And last week, he came in and briefed me and made a recommendation that we dismiss the case, which I fully agreed with, as did the U.S. attorney in D.C. So we’ve moved to dismiss the case.

    ♦ Q: So this decision to dismiss by the Justice Department, this all came together really within the last week, based on new evidence?

    BARR: Right. Well U.S. Attorney Jensen since January has been investigating this. And he reported to me last week.

    ♦ Q: Does Judge Sullivan have a say?

    BARR: Yes. Under the rules, the case can be dismissed with leave of court. Generally, the courts have said that that provision is in there to protect defendants, to make sure the government doesn’t play games by bringing a charge and then dismissing it; bringing another charge, dismissing it. But he does have a say.

      water, great post. When you read Barr’s total reply to that question, I believe he is not saying that we just got new evidence last week but he is saying he got his final report from Jensen last week adding Jensen has been working on this since January, The 2 sentences that follows the word right are pretty important for context here.

        Yep, I think CBS did their usually treasonous activity by ripping Catherine H’s video interview to shreds. Glad SD posted it here. If you read what Barr is saying or not saying…..to me it’s clear. He is staying aligned to the law and tipping his hand on stuff because it’s in the can.

  26. Sundance,
    In the highly unlikely event that AG Barr ever calls or writes you, I do hope that you will publish the more important aspects of that communication for the rest of us to read.
    I and a few patriotic friends are eagerly watching as you keep us appraised and dissect the Trump vs. Barr situation, and we hope and pray that Trump is the victor (whatever that entails). I am perhaps the more jaundiced of my group of compatriots, and wonder if Barr won’t continue to kick the can until he resigns his post when there is no other choice for him. Along with millions of other patriots out there, I hope Barr will man up, but I can’t see that happening to any appreciable degree.
    Nevertheless, we ALL hope you will continue to play the tenacious terrier, hanging onto Barr’s pant leg with a furious and sharp grip. As usual, sir … job well done.

    Who can say Barr is not a political appointee? Of course he has to be a managerial attorney and interact with politicians.

    Bob Barr made it clear in his job interview before Congress that he was coming back to save the Institutions. He’s a by the book guy because that’s how he rolls. It’s who he’s always been.

    He’s building every move on a solid foundation, with justification by following department policies and procedures to his work survives the Congressional rats scrutiny.

    Naturally, we are all angry and want justice now, Flynn should have been release a long time ago, Roger Stone’s case never should have been allowed to even commence. The case against Manifort should have ended the moment it was discovered the Black ledger was a fraud. It should have ended the moment Tony Podesta was given a bogus immunity.

    Comey, McCabe, Hillary, the Podesta’s, Strzok, Page, Mueller, Weisman, Van Grack, Dana Boente, Both James Baker et al should be sitting in Guantamino by now!

    Unfortunately it’s not so simple. Bob Barr can’t burn down these Institutions and neither can Trump; they were created by Congress. Just like a hundred other money sucking good for nothing ‘unfireable’ bureaucracies drenched with flaming liberal retards.

    Like it or not, Bob Barr’s work will burn at the stake if it isn’t painstakingly justified and ‘by the book.

    The answer to changing that paradigm has always been sitting in the US Congress.

    Perfect is the enemy of good.

    Too much weight is being placed on a one word answer ‘Right.’ Barr’s comment was in response to the questioner’s assertion that developments were the result of ‘new evidence’. In essence Barr is correct to say ‘Right’ because the evidence certainly is new to Judge Sullivan’s court. Just because everyone already ‘knows’ something to be true, doesn’t mean that is already entered into ‘evidence’.

    It seems that some of the checks and balances of the system are working. ‘Right’ ?

  29. “Bill Barr could have just dropped the Flynn case and then justified the dropping of the case by outlining what was already well known prior to, and without using, Jensen. However, if Barr took that approach he would have to explain “the real activity that took place; there was a multi-branch seditious effort to remove President Donald J Trump”; and there’s no-way of doing that while preserving the institutions.”

    That would be like Wolfe’s slap-on-the-wrist conviction used to protect the Senate Deep State. Barr’ is using this revelation to protect the institutions, in his mind, for our own good.

    A lot of people have been exposed as liars. But exactly what crimes can they be prosecuted for? I hear a lot of people saying and demanding someone go to jail and I hope that happens but exactly what actual laws have they broken? I don’t hear a lot about that.

    Your knowledge is second to none as is your analysis of the evidence. But your understanding of the political insiders and the players leaves a bit to be desired. Barr is a swamp dweller. But he is also honest.

    So he is playing the game. That is why he has the independent investigators doing his dirty work. Yes, he could do it. But you see how the democrats and sycophantic media is playing it. If he did it unilaterally, they would assassinate him!

    And besides, the timing would not play into Trump’s timetable.

    I think you’re missing something. That something is the biggest fish, Barry O. himself. Barr has to be careful building a case against a former President, but if you think Barr’s main interest is in preserving the institutions, what better way than to direct the blame to the White House? It wasn’t a corrupt DOJ/FBI, the devil (Obama and his political appointees) made them do it!
