AG Bill Barr Responds to Berman: President Trump Fired You Effective Today – UPDATE Berman Responds: “I’m Leaving”…

Attorney General Bill Barr responds to SDNY U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman who announced his refusal to leave his position last night:

…”Because you have declared that you have no intention of resigning, I have asked the President to remove you as of today, and he has done so.”…

Shorthand: You’re fired.

As we noted last night all the right resistance members have gone bananas. However, despite all the pearl-clutching, there’s no doubt in my mind Barr has this well in hand.

UPDATE 6:30pm ET: Geoffrey Berman Responds:

Common sense would tell us the attorney general knows House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler is attempting to have him impeached.  AG Bill Barr would not make any controversial personnel move -that provides Nadler ammunition- without having every angle of the removal covered.

First Review The Backstory –  Next step, remember there is a ton of background material around these moves that connects to a much larger DOJ review.  CTH has written some of the aspects on a TWITTER THREAD HERE, I’m not going to go too deep again.

Out of an abundance of caution; and knowing there are resistance members who review CTH analysis; CTH is not going to get too specific about the most likely strategy AG Bill Barr is using here.  However, that said,… and with some cautious optimism to enhance my professional skepticism,… there is a clear play at the front of these moves.

How was AG Bill Barr ever going to bring the background DOJ material to the forefront?

How does the AG present material to the public when he knows the resistance agenda is going to be to frame him as being politically motivated?

AG Barr knows the motive of Nadler is to diffuse the damning material from the DOJ investigation by shouting that Bill Barr is doing the bidding of President Trump.

Traditional approaches will not work in this highly partisan era.  Even the most stunning evidence of prior DOJ/FBI politicization and misconduct will be obfuscated by media around the Nadler narrative.   Taking the initiative to hold a press conference, to release investigative findings, will not work.

AG Barr needs a mechanism to bring the material to the public square.

AG Barr needs the initiative to originate within the opposition.

There’s no better mechanism than by using the Br’er Rabbit approach…. “don’t throw me into the briar patch” etc.

The AG can, likely has, achieved this mechanism by baiting Democrats and media into framing him as being political.  Reacting to the demands, Barr then releases his investigative findings as an outcome of accusations against him; while simultaneously saying it wasn’t his idea to bring this stuff to the surface, but he is being forced to by the false narrative(s) framed to impugn his motive.

This approach captures the attention of the public and positions political and media opposition in a way they can’t accuse Barr of improper motive because it is their claims and accusations that have driven the need for sunlight.  The opposition are the initiators.

The Democrats and Media will have thrown Br’er Barr into the briar patch, and now Barr is forced to explain all of the background material so that everyone can understand.

In combination with a series of DOJ and FBI personnel moves that are timed to conclude on Friday, July 3rd,… Barr has a previously scheduled interview with Maria Bartiromo tomorrow, Sunday June 21.

The Friday night removal of SDNY Geoffrey Berman, appears timed to ignite exactly what has taken place in the last 24 hours… and the pre-scheduled interview looks purposeful.

    Gee, I wonder if Barr now knows what is on the Weiner lap top? Now where did that info go? All of the pedophilia: the video’s if HRC and her best buddy Humma suppressed. Gone. Bye-bye.
    Amazing the lengths people are going to protect HRC and her boyfriend Bill, the Podesta’s, and all of the racketeers who just can’t get enough of that “kiddie stuff.”
    I’ll bet Berman has/ had “skin in the game” re protecting all of the those in NY under his jurisdiction so there is no SUNSHINE on their crimes. He has been acting under durress. Fumbling around in the dark. Wondering what master he serves.
    . Barr firing him? No big deal,. This guy caved in a heartbeat.
    I suspect this guy is a “pervert protector.” If he wasn’t, he would have been Arkansided a long time ago.

      Berman is the same AG that handled the Epstein case. Supposedly collected mounds of evidence. One year has gone by and not one coconspirator has been charged. Barr is on video giving a presser after Epstein’s arrest / death saying that his coconspirators should not rest easy. It will be interesting to see if any mention of the Epstein investigation is made during his interview today.

    From Reuters:

    On Friday, Barr said he had picked Craig Carpenito, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New Jersey, to serve as Acting U.S. Attorney until Clayton’s confirmation.

    But in a letter on Saturday to Berman, Barr back-tracked from that plan, saying Strauss would take over in an acting capacity.

    One former Southern District prosecutor, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Barr’s initial decision to install Carpenito was a “huge departure” from normal practice.

    Sounds like nothing will change as Bermans hand trained puppet will be taking over

      Meh, Barr was saying by ‘operation of law’ the deputy is now the acting AUSA. In other words, “You’re fired.” Right now, full stop. The Berman press release? The TDS was obviously strong in him.

      • Also note that AG Barr’s letter states that he “anticipate[s]” that Berman deputy Audrey Strauss will be the acting USAttorney until a replacement is confirmed.

        That ‘anticipation’ however in no way rules out the president’s ability to replace her with ANOTHER acting USAttorney, pursuant to his powers under the Vacancies Act.

    Agreed Icsteel,
    What convinced me that this is window dressing was when the Barr letter said, ‘oh yeah, if you have problems go to HOROWITZ, he will make sure everything is handled fairly.

    Maybe I am wrong, but why are the usual suspects always present to replace(Berman’s Deputy taking over, really? ) and deal with folks when insubordinate people possibly involved in illegal activity are fired?

    Wonder how much, if anything, Jeffrey Epstein had to do with the firing. AG Barr was not happy with Epstein’s “death,” and no one was happy with the previous Epstein coverup. Berman was in charge of not only Team Trump investigations, Epstein is also on his watch.
    Perhaps nothing.

      This Epstein situation is far bigger then most people realize largely bc they’re so appalled at the degenerate sex involved with young underaged women. But Epstein’s days as a pilot with Evergreen are IMO the bigger issue and that’s saying a lot in light of him running a full on brownstone operation with foreign and state assistance plus all of the eugenics stuff.

      The entire Epstein story can’t be exposed quickly enough and it’s will take down both right and left. (Uniparty – R and D are just marketing and convenient talking points these days)

    I am trying to understand the dynamic as well.
    Another concern what if with all the chaos that’s been created to throw the election to brainless Biden could actually succeed?!
    Wouldn’t it be prudent for Barr to address as much corruption and get the ones out of positions that could go after Trump if Trump does not win in 2020!?
    Anyone that thinks Trump will be left alone even if the election is stolen from him is wrong.
    The evil left will go after Trump with a vengeance.
    That would help address all the civil unrest if the media floods the headlines with all these supposed crimes Trump committed. SDNY is where all the indictments would come from (Trump’s taxes, Cohens continued accusations against Trump, multiple vague accusations (yawn) I can not even stand to count and or consider.
    I believe Barr is sending a message you are not going to railroad Trump Into prison on top of possibly stealing the election.
    If any of you do not believe the Globalist cabal doesn’t want to put Trump in shackles even if the election is stolen from him just look at what they’ve been doing while Trump has occupied the White House!
    The left doesn’t care if it appears illegal or a complete sham. They want to stick their finger at everyone of us that dares to continue to support President Trump.
    Trump supporters deserve to be taught a lesson on what happens when their rules aren’t followed.
    President Trump can not return to the city he loved and supported because he’s been told he’s not welcome. It’s insane given without Trump’s business empire New York City will continue down the path of a dying city.
    Never forget the personal cost to President Trump.
    I don’t even mean financial I am talking about his roots.
    The Clintons came to New York and predictably look at it now, anyplace they occupy too long turns to crap.
    Trump needs to be protected and all possible outcomes considered. I believe sadly that’s part of what Barr is doing.
    The least Barr can do is keep these corrupt, treasonous, lowlifes from setting up President Trump for a long prison sentence.
    Just look at the environment right now with judges up to the Supreme Court making decisions not backed up by the constitution.
    Look at Flynn’s case with the judge refusing to dismiss his case!
    Win or lose we must fight for President Trump because if the masses do not he will be treated just like Manafort, Flynn, Stone, etc….
    They have already begun taking down American history replacing it with graffiti leading to the White House BLM. Well all lives matter and anything declaring less then that is not patriotic it’s not moving forward it’s moving back!!
    The Trump rally was needed but, I sensed a somber part in President Trump I have never witnessed.
    When PDJT talked about the left not even knowing why they despise so much it was very sad. President Trump knows these evil people won’t stop and don’t care if the country is burned to the ground as long as they control it.

    in another thread, I posted factual reports concerning Berman’s and the 3 (03) WTC “terrorist” attack. He withheld critically important forensic evidence of seismic data from over 100 geo stations in North America and Canada, over 100 eye witness statements about what they observed within the building leading up to the aircraft impact, AND forensic SCIENCE LAB reports showing explosive ablation damage AND explosive residue.

    In 2018, he was forced to agree to release these hidden reports by a stubborn group of scientists and interested parties, but TO DATE, has NOT released these documents.

    These are documents that are relevant to a grand jury hearing.

    I’ll repost the articles and invite anyone to examine them. I was only moderately aware of these reports and pretty much held them out as uncorroborated claims. But in 2018, he conceded to release them to a grand jury. He has not done this. He agreed, but has never followed through.

    I’ll repost it later today….busy honoring Dad and some BBQ.

    God Bless America and to those patriots seeking the truth..all of it.

      didn’t take long..I bookmarked the post. Here it is again:

      “There is MUCH MUCH MORE about this “retirement” announcement that needs to be considered.

      Berman KNOWS factual information that HIS OFFICE REFUSED to allow grand jury to see about the THREE (03) World Trade Center explosives that were detonated BEFORE the aircraft impacts. THIS IS NOT A CONSPIRACY MATTER. It was and continues to be the secret not publicly made available…Because it was BERMAN and his SDNY unit that decided it would never be revealed to anyone. But, like most things of this magnitude (pun intended), you can’t alter physics or hundreds of credible eye witness accounts that corroborate the expert analysis of seismic evidence which was collected by over 100 north American and Canadian seismic monitors. With physical evidence of high explosive ablation effects on materials AND explosive residues!

      quietly, with little to zero media coverage, THIS HAPPENED:

      https://www.ae911truth.org/news/503-u-s-attorney-takes-first-step-toward-prosecuting-explosive-destruction-of-world-trade-center-on-9-11

      TO DATE, Berman and his SDNY unit has stonewalled and refused to hand over the evidence that was collected. This material was NEVER provided (or requested by congress in its “report”)

      “The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, a nonprofit public interest organization, announces its receipt of a letter from the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York in response to the Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10, 2018 Petition and July 30, 2018 Amended Petition demanding that the U.S. Attorney present to a Special Grand Jury extensive evidence of yet-to-be-prosecuted federal crimes relating to the destruction of three World Trade Center Towers on 9/11 (WTC1, WTC2 and WTC7). The U.S. Attorney, in his November 7, 2018 letter to the Lawyers’ Committee, stated: “We have received and reviewed The Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry, Inc.’s submissions of April 10 and July 30, 2018. We will comply with the provisions of 18 U.S.C. § 3332 as they relate to your submissions” (emphasis added). (The U.S. Attorney’s letter is available here.)

      The U.S. Attorney’s letter does not spell out the steps that will be taken to comply, but 18 U.S.C. § 3332 is clear as to what these steps must be. This law states: “[a]ny such [United States] attorney receiving information concerning such an alleged offense from any other person shall, if requested by such other person, inform the [Special] grand jury of such alleged offense, the identity of such other person, and such attorney’s action or recommendation.” This law also states that “(a) It shall be the duty of each such [special] grand jury impaneled within any judicial district to inquire into offenses against the criminal laws of the United States alleged to have been committed within that district.”

      This letter from the U.S. Attorney was signed by Michael Ferrara and Ilan Graff, Chiefs, Terrorism and International Narcotics Unit. On November 24, 2018, the Lawyers’ Committee replied, thanking the U.S. Attorney and expressing support for a thorough inquiry into the crimes reported in the Lawyers’ Committee’s petitions.

      The Lawyers’ Committee’s April 10th 52-page original Petition was accompanied by 57 exhibits and presented extensive evidence that explosives were used to destroy three WTC buildings. That evidence included independent scientific laboratory analysis of WTC dust samples showing the presence of high-tech explosives and/or incendiaries; numerous first-hand reports by First Responders of explosions at the WTC on 9/11; expert analysis of seismic evidence that explosions occurred at the WTC towers on 9/11 prior to the airplane impacts and prior to the building collapses; and expert analysis by architects, engineers, and scientists concluding that the rapid onset symmetrical near-free-fall acceleration collapse of three WTC high rise buildings on 9/11 exhibited the key characteristics of controlled demolition. The Lawyers’ Committee’s July 30th Amended Petition addresses several additional federal crimes beyond the federal bombing crime addressed in the original Petition. The Lawyers’ Committee concluded in the petitions that explosive and incendiary devices preplaced at the WTC were detonated causing the complete collapse of the WTC Twin Towers on 9/11 and increasing the tragic loss of life.

      so the rabbit hole runs deep with this BERMAN fella.

      stay tuned…this story is not yet over.”

        No. Just “no” in my book. This would amount to the conspiracy secret TOO BIG to keep secret, notwithstanding ACTUAL factual observations and notable physics to the contrary, as well overlooking actually some pretty massive ‘logistics’ that WTC building personnel would have observed and noted.

        So, again, no.

          have you read the independent research reports? Read it.

          …there are 6 different categories in the report.

          a. seismic evidence. moments before the impacts (both) …recorded by over 100 N/America Geo monitors.
          b. explosive/ordinance forensic evidence; ablation damage to building structure that cannot be caused by aircraft impact NOR the related jet fuel fire blast (spoiler: the material damage is related to supersonic forces…heat alone cannot perform this magic.
          c. forensic Explosive residue evidence. In ALL THREE WTC building the SAME residues appear..and not just in the dust…but within the ablated material…and concentrated at or near major structural load members!
          d. Eye witness accounts from first responder (along with multiple videos) showing the ACCELERATION of collapse and the uniformity of it almost instantaneously. In addition, eye witness (and video to support it) of successive explosive events just prior to aircraft impact (both towers)
          e. The intentional demolition of WTC bldg 3 and yet there are no evidence that any official or explosive ordinance person ever ented and rigged those demolition devices…directly implying these explosive devices were already installed….before the aircraft impacts on WTC1 & 2.!
          f. that this information WAS collected by the FBI and is NOW held at SDNY. That this information was never requested by congress to achieve its 9/11 reports. That this information was also not submitted to a special grand jury.

          read it.

          it’s quite compelling.

    You also stated recently that COVID was NOT affecting the progress of Durham’s investigation [Report].
    You gotta keep those EXCUSES [stalling tactics] straight!

    While I’m at it- if you were running a REAL investigation, you follow where the FACTS lead you! So how can you prematurely say that Nobama & Biden WON’T be investigated?!

    It’s frightening to read twits’ comments on Nadler’s drivel concerning Barr’s actions and motivations. They gleefully accuse AG Barr and President Trump of corruption. But their claims directly link backto dems’ crimes. But they’re woefully willfully remiss in condemning or naming any dem in any way. Is this LSM’s fault? Perhaps to a large extent, but these people have the resources to go and investigate on their own. That’s what I do. How can they watch what’s going on in the country and not question where it all originates? Because they truly hate us, and anything Trump, that much.
