God, please help William (Bill) Barr overcome these geriatrics. One of the good guys!
Jumping in and out of these so-called ‘hearings’ it immediately becomes very obvious that most of these octogenarians have been in Congress way too long and have gone way beyond their ‘sell-by’ date. It beggars belief that any one of them would have a real job outside of Congress.
Strewth already, I feel for AG William (Bill) Barr having to put up with the geriatrics Grassley, Leahy, Feinstein etal, being hauled out of their old folks bedrooms to mumble and stumble and bumble along incoherently attempting to be relevant – or something!
Then there’s the rest of the collective-left ‘acting geriatrics’ made up of snakes in the grass Durbin, Whitehouse, Klobuchar, Coons, Blumenthal, Hirono, Booker and Harris, all of whom have perfected the techniques of deceptive lying and obfuscation. It all becomes so natural to them.
Talk about a geriatrics den of thieves!
Just more of the national soap opera: meanwhile, down at the border, three thousand plus people walk into the United States unchallenged by governmental leaders every day. These so-called leaders fully on display in hearings like today’s, took an oath to protect this great nation and they are abrogating that responsibility to their constituents each and every day that this invasion continues.
I have a suggestion for them – If they don’t like Barr’s summary the rats can get off their obsessed lazy asses and read Mueller’s report for themselves, since after all they have perfected the techniques of deception, lying and obfuscation.
Thomas Lifson in today’s American Thinker and ‘Sneaky Mueller with leaky letter to Sabotage Barr’s congressional testimony’ …
I don’t for a second believe that it is a coincidence that a private letter reportedly sent from Robert Mueller to A.G. William Barr was leaked the day before his round of congressional testimony was set to begin. The New York Times and Washington Post published accounts within minutes of each other, which indicates a strategy being employed by either Mueller or his staff, in order to damage Barr and shape his testimony. The Times’ headline alone is red meat for Dems: Mueller Objected to Barr’s Description of Russia Investigation’s Findings on Trump.
Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, wrote a letter in late March to Attorney General William P. Barr objecting to his early description of the Russia investigation’s conclusions that appeared to clear President Trump on possible obstruction of justice, according to the Justice Department and three people with direct knowledge of the communication between the two men.
The letter adds to the growing evidence of a rift between them and is another sign of the anger among the special counsel’s investigators about Mr. Barr’s characterization of their findings, which allowed Mr. Trump to wrongly claim he had been vindicated.
It was unclear what specific objections Mr. Mueller raised in his letter[.]
Lifson closes out with:
‘That last line is the perfect tee-up for angry questioning of Barr. He speaks to the GOP-controlled Senate today and may or may not show up for a House hearing Thursday. But the letter reportedly did not say Barr was inaccurate.’
‘Chairman Jerrold Nadler is trying to set up a television show designed to make Barr look bad, by using the format of a prosecution: a staff lawyer grilling Barr for 30 minutes at a time, instead of five minutes per committee member, the normal approach.’
‘That allows surprise questions and follow-up questions that can’t be answered immediately owing to the need for research and preparation. It’s the format used in the Watergate hearings, which is exactly the association intended by Nadler and his nabobs.’
‘Barr will not walk into that trap and will refuse to appear, even if subpoenaed. Eric Holder set the precedent of an A.G. refusing to honor a congressional subpoena and suffering no prosecution.’
‘This is all theater, a bone being tossed to the rabid Trump-haters lusting after impeachment. It would not surprise me if the House moved to impeach Barr after he snubs their subpoena. They may calculate that the public would not be as outraged by this as by impeachment of Trump and that their own fanatics would be appeased.’
‘With the full-throated support of the media, they might get their way.[end]
And with that, time for today’s MAGA Pill – President Donald J. Trump – MAGA!
