Fairfax Blames Victims

Virginia Democrat Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax today seemed to blame his alleged victims for the media circus regarding his sexual assault accusations, comparing his treatment to a public lynching.

Fairfax today made more heads spin as he appeared to blame his alleged victims for daring to come forward, comparing his treatment by the media and other politicians to a modern day lynching. The comparison was made even more incendiary after “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s apparent hate hoax, which involved an attempt to tie rope around his neck and pour him with gasoline.

He made the unsettling comparison on Sunday when delivering a surprise speech before the Virginia State Senate.

“I’ve heard much about anti-lynching on the floor of this very Senate, where people were not given any due process whatsoever, and we rue that,” Fairfax said, referencing legislation the General Assembly passed expressing “profound regret” for lynchings in Virginia between 1877 and 1950.

“And we talk about hundreds, at least 100 terror lynchings that have happened in the Commonwealth of Virginia under those very same auspices. And yet we stand here in a rush to judgment with nothing but accusations and no facts and we decide that we are willing to do the same thing,” Fairfax said.

This continues a pattern of belittling his alleged victims in an attempt to deny their stories, as according to reports Fairfax remarked “f**k that b**ch” during an off record conversation while trying to discredit one of the accusers earlier this month.

Virginia’s Republican lawmakers are now attempting to get a sworn testimony from Fairfax and his accusers, something that would meet the request of one of Fairfax’s accusers, who said in an article last week that her life has been turned upside down in the week after coming forward with her story.

Big League Politics reported:

In her article, she said that she has refused calls from politicians and media outlets to make the alleged rape a partisan issue or media talking point, and as such has been ignored.

Watson also stated that reporters and researchers have dug into every facet of her personal life, going as far as researching her elementary school records in an attempt to find evidence she may be untrustworthy or lying about the alleged rape.

Rather than a “secret” investigation into Fairfax, she demands a public hearing, and blames the Virginia legislature and the media for refusing to do its job and investigate the allegations publicly.

While Fairfax has yet to deliver a sworn statement, he has readily used his bully pulpit to blame his alleged victims.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
