Attorney General Bill Barr was brought in to add “Legitimacy” and “Honesty” to the Trump Administration’s Justice Department. He was respected by both sides of the aisle if not liked by both. He had a reputation as a meticulous manager, and very tough on Crime as Attorney General the position which he had served under President H. W. Bush.
After the disappointment of Jeff Sessions, and his surprising ineptitude the Nation as a whole felt Barr would do a good job. Both not allowing Trump to run amok as the Democrats feared, and regaining control of a runaway Justice Department operating on Politics rather than The Law for the Republicans.
From all accounts the Dem’s got their half of the deal. During Barr’s Tenure President Trump did not weaponize the Justice Department, but as we are finding out more and more AG Barr did NOTHING to bring the Justice Department from under the control of Politics.
Under Barr’s watch the Justice Department continued to be weaponized against Republicans continuing to be used against the sitting President and anyone who supported him, while at the same time covering up massive fraud, bribery, extortion, and sedition by Democrat Politicians and their families.
The Attorney General is the Nations Top Cop. They are supposed to ensure the Equal Application of the Law, “Qui Pro Domina Justitia Sequitur”(“Who prosecutes on behalf of justice (or the Lady Justice)” Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The most sacred of the duties of government [is] to do equal and impartial justice to all its citizens.” Barr failed at this miserably.
The reason I write this piece today is due to my reaction when I heard AG Barr’s interview the other day when he was hawking his book. The remarks he made turned my stomach as it showed that this man was no Cop, but just another politician.
Please watch the following 2:43 length clip.
a bit of the transcript:
>> I’M LIMITED TO WHAT I CAN SAY, I DON’T WANT TO DISCUSS ONGOING POSSIBLE INVESTIGATIONS BUT REACTION TO THE PRESIDENT THERE WAS RESISTING THE IDEA OF INJECTING A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION OF ONE OF THE CANDIDATES’ CHILDREN INTO THE RACE WHEN THERE HAS NOT BEEN DEFINITIVE JUDGMENT OVER AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE. SO I MADE IT CLEAR I WAS NOT GOING TO DISCUSS CRIMINAL CASES WITH HIM, ESPECIALLY ONES HE MIGHT HAVE AN INTEREST IN. SO I WOULD STILL DO THAT TODAY, BUT I WAS VERY DISTURBED DURING THE DEBATE WHEN CANDIDATE BIDEN LIED TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ABOUT THE LAPTOP. HE SQUARELY CONFRONTED WITH THE LAPTOP AND SUGGESTED IT WAS RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION AND POINTED TO THE LETTER WRITTEN BY INTELLIGENCE PEOPLE BASELESS, WHICH HE KNEW WAS A LIE, AND I WHICH HE KNEW WAS A LIE, AND I WAS SHOCKED BY THAT, AND FORTUNATELY THE D.N.I. SAID IT’S NOT, AND FBI SAME THING.<<
As someone whose family background is in Policing hearing this man that I respected speak this way made me sick.
The FBI was in possession of the Laptop. The FBI had access to everything on it. The Biden Campaign and the ENTIRE MSM were insisting the Laptop was a Fake, and were lying to the American Public. Tech companies were violating Americans Civil Rights and suppressing Free Speech because it was “Misinformation & Disinformation”.
Now Prosecutors, and Cops are not allowed to talk about On-Going cases, and that makes good sense both practically, and legally. That is the “excuse” Barr used and is using to cover his negligence or incompetence. Yet whichever one it is the excuse is pure Bull…. and to hear him say he was sickened by the LIES Joe Biden was telling sickened me.
The Top Cop of the United States KNEW the Laptop was Real, he KNEW it implicated the entire Biden Family in “pay for play” crimes, including Joe, and he KNEW that the Biden Campaign and the MSM were committing massive Fraud on the American people saying the very existence of the Laptop was “Russian Disinformation”…. and he did NOTHING!
There are several reasons not to discuss an ongoing case, you don’t want to tip your hand to those you are investigating as to what evidence you have, another is you don’t want to influence any possible jurors that might hear the case, and there are a 100 others. None of which apply in this case.
Those being investigated (The Biden’s) knew that the FBI had Hunter’s Laptop. Confirming it’s existence in no way would compromise any Legal action it may be part of. It is a matter of American Law that ALL Evidence a Prosecutor has must be shared with the accused and their Attorney’s. Even if no Legal Action ever results from anything on the Laptop the EXISTANCE of the Laptop the FACT IS that it existed and was Hunter Biden’s.
Attorney General Barr was well aware that the Laptop was real, The Biden’s knew it was real, as did the MSM, and so did the Tech Companies who were violating American Citizens Civil Rights to suppress Individuals and even the Press in the case of the NYPost discussing it.
This man that was sickened to hear Biden Lie about it sat by and did nothing as a massive fraud was committed on the American People and our Rights Violated.
AG Barr allowed EVERY AMERICAN’s 1st Amendment to be Violated. The FACT that the NY Post was denied their Freedom of the Press was a crime against all Americans. I’m sorry Bill but if you couldn’t find it in you to Defend the very First Law of American Society then you’re no Cop or Defender of Justice you sir are just another crooked politician.
