Attorney General Bill Barr is unfazed by the unhinged attacks on his character from desperate Democrats, and he is willing to take the heat in order to clean up what he feels are corrupt practices within the U.S. justice system.
He appeared on CBS News for an interview where he explained why he emerged from private life for a second stint as AG nearly thirty years after serving under President George H.W. Bush.
“I am at the end of my career,” Barr said. “Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don’t believe in the Homeric idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?”
Barr understood it would be inevitable that he would be attacked due to the “hyper-partisan period of time” in our national politics. Barr maintains that he will continue “behaving responsibly and calling them as [he] see[s] them” despite the fact that “nowadays, people don’t care about the merits and the substance.”
“They only care about who it helps, who benefits, whether my side benefits or the other side benefits, everything is gauged by politics,” Barr said.
“And as I say that’s antithetical to the way the department runs and any attorney general in this period is going to end up losing a lot of political capital and I realize that and that’s one of the reasons that I ultimately was persuaded that I should take it on because I think at my stage in life, it really doesn’t make any difference,” he added.
Barr has no regrets taking the job despite the position’s headaches. He feels that his leadership is needed during these troubled times because public trust needs to be restored in the justice system now that FBI spook Robert Mueller’s special counsel has concluded.
“In many ways, I’d rather be back in my old life but I think that I love the Department of Justice, I love the FBI, I think it is important that we not, in this period of intense partisan feeling, destroy our institutions,” Barr said.
He has had a “good, professional working relationship” with President Trump thus far. His predecessor, Jeff “Mr. Magoo” Sessions, recused himself from the Mueller investigation and refused to do his job to reign in the abuses that have brought tremendous shame to the FBI and DOJ and divided the country needlessly.
Barr denies that Trump has done anything in particular to damage our nation’s institutions, and he believes that Trump hired him to undo the damage caused by the abusive practices of the entrenched bureaucracy that have harmed public faith in the rule of law.
“I think one of the ironies today is that people are saying that it’s President Trump that’s shredding our institutions. I really see no evidence of that,” Barr said.
“From my perspective, the idea of resisting a democratically elected president and basically throwing everything at him and you know, really changing the norms on the grounds that we have to stop this president, that is where the shredding of our norms and our institutions is occurring,” he added.
Right now, Barr is investigating the investigators and has tasked bulldog U.S. Attorney John Durham to figure out how the entire Russian collusion probe started. Trump is suggesting that those responsible are guilty of “treason,” and Democratic leaders are quivering as a result.
Is the FBI Preparing to Revoke 1st Amendment Protections for Trump Supporters?
Ripping off the mask.
After last week’s mostly peaceful protests at the Capitol, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intends to browbeat and scrutinize Trump supporters as criminals, CNN has announced.
The rationale is that all Trump supporters are “extremists,” and if their constitutional rights are honored and protected, they might commit domestic terrorism, or something.
“Federal officials stressed on the call with state, local, tribal and college campus law enforcement leaders that the FBI will not tolerate extremists using the First Amendment as a guide to incite violence,” CNN reported.
Predictably, the Rooskies are being trotted out as a familiar scapegoat for the growing anger that is building against corrupt government officials in both parties.
“According to the source, federal officials said on the call that Russian actors have been amplifying the false narrative that members of Antifa infiltrated Trump supporters during the riot at the US Capitol, and the Chinese have seized on news stories showing chaos in the US,” CNN reported.
According to the article, the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence are predicting that more violence is on the way.
“The violent breach of the US Capitol Building is very likely part of an ongoing trend in which (extremists) exploit lawful protests, rallies, and demonstrations, and other gatherings to carry out ideologically-motivated violence and criminal activity,” an intelligence brief from the deep state agencies stated.
Big League Politics has reported on the massive crackdown that has ensued since last week’s siege of the U.S. Capitol, which has put the entire political establishment on notice:
Meghan McCain, the venomously anti-Trump daughter of deceased Sen. John McCain, is calling for President Donald Trump’s supporters to be put into Guantanamo Bay.
McCain is calling for Trump supporters who participated in the infamous and historic Capitol siege in Washington D.C. last week to be detained in the facility typically used to hold foreign terrorists.
“I just think we need to treat domestic terrorists the way we do actual terrorists. I think we need to consider all possibilities. I’m not against sending these people to Gitmo. These are domestic terrorists who attacked our own Republic. They should be treated the same way we treat Al Qaeda,” she said during a discussion on ABC’s “The View.”
… McCain also endorsed impeaching President Trump or removing him with the 25th Amendment, thinking this incredible overreach would somehow prevent the likelihood of violence…
The events of last week have exposed who the RINOs are once and for all. The civil war within the Republican Party over the next election cycle will be epic.
The mask has been ripped off. Fair elections are no more, the Constitution is toilet paper, and the deep state will be treating patriotic Americans like ISIS.
