Last week we had hours upon hours of the silly politicians playing to the cameras…..the hearings for the AG replacement, Barr.
I say silly because he has got to go through the Senate and those goddamn cowards have already decided what to do so why bore the piss out of the rest of us to make some partisan point?
But okay let’s look at the new AG….William Barr (he is the wrong person to lead DoJ in my opinion he is a political hack…perfect for the Trump admin that is top heavy with political hacks)……
While the hearings focused on Mueller…there is so much more that needs telling about this person…..
The Senate Judiciary Committee hearings for Attorney General nominee William Barr have focused heavily on Barr’s views on Special Counsel Robert Mueller. But nobody is asking about Barr’s legal crusade for blanket immunity for federal agents who killed American citizens.
Barr received a routine questionnaire from the Judiciary Committee asking him to disclose his past work including pro bono activities “serving the disadvantaged.” The “disadvantaged” that Barr spent the most time helping was an FBI agent who slayed an Idaho mother holding her baby in 1992. Barr spent two weeks organizing former Attorneys General and others to support “an FBI sniper in defending against criminal charges in connection with the Ruby Ridge incident.” Barr also “assisted in framing legal arguments advanced… in the district court and the subsequent appeal to the Ninth Circuit,” he told the committee.
Why was Barr chosen, given his shocking and deeply criminal/cover-up kingpin background?
Was Trump duped by Deep State enemies, who have placed another predator into his administration with the power to destroy his presidency? Or has Trump co-opted and turned Barr, in the hopes that Barr will do Trump’s bidding? Why would Barr ever turn against his own Deep State cronies?
Does Trump have a plan? With Barr in place, is Trump signaling to his enemies that “I now own the Deep State”? Or is Barr the Deep State’s ultimate and final weapon against Trump, who remains surrounded by Bush/Clinton “swamp creatures” such as National Security Adviser John Bolton, who is one of Barr’s many fellow Iran-Contra co-conspirators, Vice President Mike Pence (who is in ideal position for a coup against Trump, and remains very cozy with the Clintons, dozens of Obama appointees that remain in place, and Republican “Never Trumpers”, all of whom continue to undermine Trump.
Just a little background that is lacking in his run for the head chair of the DOJ…..interesting that very little of this has come out in the hearings….the questioners had an agenda and they blotted out all other concerns.
This person should NOT be allowed to control the DOJ it will be a mistake. (Personal opinion)
