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.

Prosecutors Move to Drop Charges Against Russians Charged By Robert Mueller
A nothingburger all along.
Federal prosecutors have given a tacit admission of the pointlessness of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian conspiracy probe one year after its conclusion, dropping charges against the Russian nationals accused of orchestrating an “election interference” operation in the United States during the 2016 election.
Court documents revealed that the prosecutors are dropping charges on Monday.

Concord Management is a Russian company accused of being the parent of the Internet Research Agency, another Russian entity that Mueller accused of running troll farms that post memes and comment online about the 2016 election. 12 employees of Concord Management were charged by Mueller for the supposed operation.
The individuals in question weren’t American residents, and only some of them were present in the country for a period.
The prosecutors overseeing the case against the Russians admitted that there was no chance the individuals, who live across the world, would be meaningfully punished for their supposed election interference operations.
The men were said to be agents of the Russian state intelligence agency known as the GRU. Mueller claimed that they were responsible for the infamous hack of the DNC’s email servers during the 2016 Democratic convention.
“Concord, a Russian company with no presence in the United States and no exposure to meaningful punishment in the event of a conviction, promotes neither the interests of justice or the nation’s security… The better course is to cease litigation as to the Concord defendants.”
It was quite obvious since the beginning that wire fraud charges against Russian residents with no presence in the United States was going to be a fruitless endeavor, but the Deep State’s man intended to deliver a gesture for the bureaucratic entity, regardless of the substance behind it.
Already largely forgotten, the Mueller probe appears set to enter the memory hole as little more than a pointless hoax in light of the dismissed charges against supposed “election interference” perpetrators.
