President Donald J. Trump took a swipe at late former Senator and failed presidential candidate John McCain for his role in spreading the bogus, never verified Steele Dossier.
“So it was indeed (just proven in court papers) ‘last in his class’ (Annapolis) John McCain that sent the Fake Dossier to the FBI and Media hoping to have it printed BEFORE the Election. He & the Dems, working together, failed (as usual). Even the Fake News refused this garbage!” Trump said on Twitter.

McCain admitted in a memoir written before he died that he handed the Clinton campaign funded dossier over to disgraced former FBI director James Comey because he felt “duty demanded it.” He also said that “anybody who doesn’t like it can go to hell.”
Trump was miffed upon finding out that McCain gave the dossier to Comey before the election, and insinuated that McCain was trying to influence the results of the election.
The 45th president hit McCain Saturday, too.
“Spreading the fake and totally discredited Dossier ‘is unfortunately a very dark stain against John McCain.’ Ken Starr, Former Independent Counsel. He had far worse ‘stains’ than this, including thumbs down on repeal and replace after years of campaigning to repeal and replace!” he said.

The bitter old man went to his grave harboring disdain for Trump, who swooped in and disrupted the failing GOP establishment, of which McCain was a card-carrying member, and had worked so hard to protect throughout his nearly three-decade career in politics. He infamously disinvited Trump from attending his funeral before he died.

Attorney General Bill Barr Folds to the Mob, Claims There is Systemic Racism in Law Enforcement
Barr said that law enforcement being unfair to blacks is a “widespread phenomenon.”
Attorney General Bill Barr has bent his knee to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, defending the lie of systemic racism during an interview with ABC News.
“I do think it is a widespread phenomenon that African American males, in particular, are treated with extra suspicion and maybe not given the benefit of the doubt,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas during an exclusive interview.
“I think it is wrong if people are not respected appropriately and given their due,” he added, “and I think it’s something we have to address.”
Barr said that he is cheering on widespread reform in the wake of serial felon drug addict George Floyd’s death during a police encounter.
“Before the George Floyd incident I thought we were in a good place,” he said. “I think that this episode in Minneapolis showed that we still have some work to do in addressing the distrust that exists in the African American community toward law enforcement.”
Barr noted that he hopes Floyd’s death will serve as “a catalyst for the kinds of changes that are needed.”
Although Barr is paying lip service to BLM and throwing law enforcement under the bus, he has not yet joined the bandwagon to defund the police. He instead wants cops to be hamstrung and substituted with social workers in certain situations to deal with suspected criminals.
“We have to think about more investment in the police,” Barr said. “So one of the things we’ve been talking about is trying to direct some of the [Health and Human Services] money and grant programs and sync it up with law enforcement spending so we can enable the departments to have co-responders. That is, social workers and mental health experts who can go on certain kinds of calls to help.”
He cited a recent federal study conducted by the Justice Department’s civil rights division throwing law enforcement under the bus.
“We found, in that case, that there was a drug unit in the Springfield (Mass.) police department that was engaged in a pattern and practice of using excessive force,” Barr said.
Barr offered a very modest criticism of BLM during the interview for refusing to focus on the thousands of black lives that are taken by other black people.
“I also think [the phrase] is being used now – it is distorting the debate to some extent, because it is used really to refer almost exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct,” he said. “Then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community, those are black lives that matter, too. And those are lives that are protected by the police.”
Barr’s response shows why Fox News host Tucker Carlson is saying that Republicans have failed abysmally in their response to a nationwide terror campaign from the Left. The weak response from the administration may cost Trump re-election in November.
