Attorney General William Barr

Turbocharging The Big Lie About Russian Interference In The 2016 Election

Today’s column by Diana West carefully parses the comments made last month by former CIA Director and Defense Secretary Robert Gates in an interview during the May 12, 2019 edition of “Face the Nation.” Ms. West’s conclusion: If the colossal con of "Russian interference" had not worked like an evil charm, it would be pathetic.

William Barr is asking questions the media don't want asked

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

As Barr said spying is appropriate if it’s “adequately predicated,” and it’s unclear whether the spying on the Trump campaign was. Barr is old enough to remember when liberals did not take government legal or intelligence agencies’ word that spying on an administration’s opponents was justified, when they did not attack those who questioned it as unpatriotic. He may be amused that such doings are self-righteously justified today. But it’s good that he’s willing to ask questions most of the media doesn't want asked, to determine how the Obama law enforcement and intelligence agencies set about spying on the opposite party’s presidential campaign.

Diana West: Barr 'will keep a lid on questions about this Special Counsel investigation'

While many conservatives have applauded Attorney Barr’s comments during his recent CBS News interview, our friend author Diana West parsed his words closely and concluded they indicate that, rather than blowing away the smokescreen masking the Deep State conspiracy against President Trump, Mr. Barr is intent on managing it.

William Barr Is Washington’s Worst Nightmare

David Catron, The American Spectator

The continued outrage and nonsense from the legacy media, combined with ridiculous claims by the Democrats that a man with William Barr’s record has no credibility and self-exculpatory balderdash from fabulists like John Brennan and James Comey, suggest that the real problem they have with the Attorney General is his blindingly obvious integrity. There are few things that scare the denizens of D.C. more than an honest man. The only thing they fear more is an honest man who doesn’t give a damn what they think of him. William Barr is their worst nightmare.

Mueller’s Bitter End

Beyond infuriating Democrats Mueller stated only the obvious. However, he created a further problem for Trump-haters because buried in Mueller’s statement was an important statement of fact that further exonerates President Trump.

Declassification and Cognitive Dissonance in the Media

David Catron, The American Spectator

The media must report the “news” in a way that requires them to claim two contradictory “facts” are both true: The President and AG Barr are engaged in a cover-up but are also involved in a nefarious plot to declassify and release as much information as possible. Media hacks at the New York Times and the Washington Post get paid to endure the cognitive dissonance caused by fabulist Adam Schiff, who responded to President Trump’s declassification order by claiming, “The cover-up has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American.” For normal people dwelling beyond the Beltway — the voters — this gibberish just doesn’t cut it.

DOJ Should Charge House Dems With Extortion For Barr Contempt Threat

Mark J. Fitzgibbons, Daily Caller

Is it a valid legislative power or purpose to require someone to commit a crime to reply to a congressional subpoena? Barr and the DOJ have presented the clear state of the law, which is undisputed, that the grand jury information in the Mueller report is confidential under law. It is easy to conclude Congress may not order anyone — particularly the United States attorney general — to commit a crime by disclosing that information. Bill Barr’s composure during the post-Mueller report circus shows that he’s got sand. I would not be surprised if his DOJ under the master counter-puncher, Donald Trump, decided to get aggressive with Nadler, whose claim of a constitutional crisis could come back to bite him.

William Barr exposed the rampant desperation of Trump’s foes

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Barr called the letter a “bit snitty,” and countered the criticism by saying he had moved quickly to release the entire report, minus minimal redactions, and the whole world could see what Mueller had found — and didn’t find. It was a legitimate, if thin, line of questioning, but Dems didn’t like the answer and lost it again. Obviously frustrated that their main talking point for the entire Trump presidency has come up empty, they savaged Barr and accused him of covering up for a corrupt ­president. It was politics at its most dishonest as they tried to argue that up is down and black is white. Barr was mostly stoic.

Attorney General Barr: “the evidence is now that the President was falsely accused”

We ignored the Democrats on the Senate Judiciary grandstanding and making fools of themselves to bring you a mash-up of the key points from Attorney General Willam Barr's testimony during yesterday's hearing on the Special Counsel's investigation and report on Russian involvement in the 2016 election.

The Biggest Hole In The Mueller Report

We have been going through the Mueller Report and will have a few more things to say about it as we complete our review and analysis, but first let’s go over what we see as the biggest hole in the Report. The biggest hole is the Report’s utter failure to address the validity of the “predicate” to the entire Trump investigation.

The Real Reason Democrats Went Nuts Over AG Barr’s Testimony

That participants in the Trump campaign were spied upon an irrefutable fact. So, why did the Democrats and their Leftwing media do-boys go nuts about it? Because if Barr investigates whether the spying was “was adequately predicated" it will reveal the Democrat-generated falsehoods behind the closed loop system that set-up the entire Trump – Russia investigation.
