Democrats Are Losing Their Minds Over AG Bill Barr

Democrats blame Attorney General William Barr for the failure of the Mueller report to prove the Trump-Russia conspiracy.

Published

Senate Democrats lashed out at Attorney General William Barr at a Senate hearing today, seeking to blame him for the failure of Robert Mueller’s investigation to demonstrate collusion between Donald Trump’s 2016 Presidential campaign and the Russian government.

Barr increasingly is being made a scapegoat for the nothingburger of the two-year investigation. Democrats are calling for the Attorney General’s impeachment, claiming that the recently confirmed lawyer is acting as President Trump’s personal advocate.

New York Democrat Jerrold Nadler threatened to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt of Congress during proceedings Thursday, likening President Trump to a dictator. Barr had testified before Congress on Wednesday, declining to repeat the same experience on Wednesday.

Democrats allege that Barr blunted the political impact of the Mueller report by summarizing its results before the full report was published days later.

Sources within the Special Counsel’s investigation have supposedly reaffirmed such sentiment. These leakers hoped to utilize the report as a political whipping stick to start Trump impeachment proceedings after it became clear that no evidence of misconduct would be found by the handsomely funded and unaccountable extraconstitutional investigation.

The full Mueller report was released less than a month after Barr summarized its findings. The Special Counsel is on record confirming that nothing Barr said about the report was misleading or inaccurate, creating serious questions about a narrative claiming Barr has concealed a report already fully published and available to the public.

The shifting of the goalposts of liberal Trump-Russia conspiracies to target Barr represents the latest attempt to keep the lengthy and seemingly endless collusion conspiracy theory alive.

It’s more than possible that progressives and Democrats will accuse Robert Mueller himself of being an agent of Putin and the Russian government, should he decline to deliver on testimony critical of Trump before Congress in the upcoming weeks.

Tragically, while the Trump-Russia conspiracy appears to be ending in failure, the years-long obsession with the topic in liberal media has largely stunted any serious, adult conversation about improving the relationship between the United States and Russia.

President Trump proposed negotiating over points of contention between the two countries as a candidate, a possibility that seems mostly to have gone down the drain since the birth of the ever-lingering conspiracy.

Democrat Superdelegates Willing to Overturn Primary Delegate Count to Stop Bernie

The Democratic Party still has a ‘superdelegate’ system.

Published

on

New York Times interviews with several Democrat superdelegates revealed that the party elites are willing and prepared to block a Bernie Sanders nomination if they have the ability.

The superdelegates only enter into play if the Democrat nomination process goes to a second ballot at the party’s convention in Milwaukee. For that to happen, no candidate could possess an outright majority of (pledged) delegates on the first ballot.

In such a case, superdelegates could plausibly prove instrumental in deciding the nomination.

Bernie Sanders has gone on the record stating that the Democrat candidate who possesses the most delegates at the convention-even if they’re not an outright majority- should be the nominee. Every other Democrat candidate, with the exception of Tulsi Gabbard, has declined to back such a proposition.

Superdelegates interviewed by the Times seemed relatively unapologetic about the prospect of overturning the will of a plurality of Democrat voters and handing the nomination to a candidate with less popular votes and delegates.

Bernie wants to redefine the rules and just say he just needs a plurality,” said Jay Jacobs, chair of the New York Democrat Party. “I don’t think we buy that. I don’t think the mainstream of the Democratic Party buys that. If he doesn’t have a majority, it stands to reason that he may not become the nominee.”

The Times interviewed 93 superdelegates, finding consensus behind such a controversial proposition.

Superdelegates lost their right to participate in the first nominating ballot for the presidential primary after the 2016 election. Many Democrats were incensed at their undemocratic role in the nominating process, especially in light of their overwhelming allegiance to Hillary Clinton in the 2016 primary.

Superdelegates are composed of party donors, elected officials, and other elite Democrats granted the powerful position by the DNC.

It’s worth noting that primary season talk of contested conventions, be it in the Republican or Democrat Party, rarely materializes. Hope of a contested convention is usually limited to a pipe dream that party segments resort to when it becomes too obvious that their preferred candidate is not going to be selected by voters.
