Trump's Avenger: AG Barr and the Lost Cause Against Mueller

Updated on May 1, 2019

There is an outrage. As expected, Barr, sought to avenge and defend and minimize Mueller's 400+page report that clearly shows Barr's own bias for his boss, President Trump. Was it really a shock to hear Barr split the report and use it in partial, isolated ways, to clear Trump's name with regards to obstruction, where Mueller outlined 10 incidents where obstruction could have occurred depending on how you interpret the evidence.

Mueller was so incensed about the whitewash of Barr's final decision, he wrote a letter to Barr stating so. This letter was in Barr's hand long before the public and Congress found out and Barr outright lied when asked if he knew what Mueller's concerns were while under oath. Of course, Barr said the question asked before Congress did not specifically refer to Mueller but others under Mueller, so he was able to dodge it. Of course, Barr knew what was being referred to, he simply played dumb to save his ass. He deliberately misled the Congress.

Barr then went on to state that unless it rose to the criminal level with regards to Trump's actions, it was nothing to worry about. It was fine. What about the morality of Trump's actions? His 10,000 lies over the past two years. About his evasive answers he gave Mueller, his wanting to have his White House attorney to create a false story and have the Asst. AG get rid of Mueller. Barr split hairs when it came to this issue, stating "get rid" is not the same as "fire him".

Now, Barr refuses to testify before Congress since many of them are also attorney's. Graham, the Senate's leader on this issue, also Republican, refuses to call the White House attorney who has rebuked Trump's version of what discussions they had between them. I wonder why, LOL.

Barr should just resign or get impeached for lying to Congress. What Barr did with Mueller's report was to spin the narrative so any damage to his boss, Trump, was minimal. When talking about obstruction, Mueller, lays out a well outlined series of potential obstructions with a few of them that could be called attempted obstruction, which is illegal in other cases had it NOT involved a president of a country. Most legal experts agree with this. Barr is Trump's man and to think any other result would have happened is wishful thinking since Republicans have no desire to turn on their man. They will do everything and anything to spin the truth to protect Trump. Truth no longer matters in the Trump sphere and orbit.

Trump continues to obstruct openly. He has told his staff within the WH to not cooperate with the Congress investigation and their subpoenas. Trump has said they will never get his tax returns and so on. Mueller has written the summaries for Barr to use and release, yet, Barr wrote his own spun version of Mueller's summaries and released those. No doubt, Barr whitewashed Mueller's summaries to protect his boss.

Barr is still the leading man to handle the remaining 14 investigations that are ongoing and refused to recuse himself, as Sessions did, which annoyed Trump. You know how that will end already: Trump was falsely accused and there is no evidence to support the allegations.

Mueller was angry enough to write a letter to Barr about how Barr was handling his two year report. Barr simply dismissed it and went on his own mission to protect and defend Trump. However, Mueller may have the last say about this because we know Congress wants to hear him and hear from McGhann, Trump's WH attorney. One can hear Trump claiming executive privilege to prevent McGhann from testifying and Mueller being unable to testify in front of Congress.

When anyone tries to had the truth for whatever reason, they look guilty and this creates just more suspicion. Trump's tax returns and the obstruction issues all have this typhoon of motives.

Obviously, Trump thinks he is above the law and his Republican party could care less about the rule of law. America has descended into this abyss that never ends.

      Kasich is a decent, true Republican. I would vote for him depending on who the democrats have.

      You did it again.

      Check off the ones that apply

      your tactics and those of the left, Anti Trumpers, Anti Americans.

      ---------------------

      1. going off the subject,

      2. making personal attacks,

      3. belittling what they consider are their opponents,

      4. answering questions with their own questions.

      5. redirecting the original comment to something different as a deflection, or diversion.

      6. name calling

      7. questioning in a derogatory manner even whether their opponent is even a person.

      8. questioning in a derogatory or condescending manner the qualification of their opponent.

      9. falsely claiming in a derogatory or condescending manner the their opponent is the problem

      10. responding with phrases like the opponent is wrong, or the information is wrong, or even stupid.

      11. claiming victory based on their current response, when their claim is insufficient

      12. making a claim that is just a statement, but it doesn’t give any details to substantiate it.

      13. claiming the opponent made a bad statement, but doesn’t giving any reference to prove it. It is basically their word alone that justifies their statement.

      14. Using the word FACT to be the same as a FACT but it is just their opinion

      15. Substituting their opinion as to what someone else is thinking, doing or guessing. Making possibilities into realties is not a fact, but their personal prediction of an outcome.

      16. making vague, ambiguous and non foundation statement

      Grandiose statement, can you substantiate what appears to be a baseless accusation.

      Can you also give some examples of other presidents that put America first? That way we can measure what you think is putting America 2nd.

      We also recovered after FDR, LBJ, Carter, Clinton and Obama. Add those to your list.

      Do you really think the president Trump is a republican?

      And Trump is way better than all those listed here.

      We recovered after Nixon, after Reagan, after both Bush's. We'll recover again. The question is: When will be ever learn and stop electing Republicans for president? This list of disasters keeps on growing.

      Trump as an independent would be interesting, this would allow some Republicans to go for it like Kasich. Don't think it will happen.

      The point is that the republicans lost the opportunity to make a difference before 2018, and they couldn't make a difference now if they tried. They don't appear to be trying at all.

      Ryan and McCain left on their own, so that doesn't count for republicans doing it.

      Do you really want people like Mitt Romney to be a leader in the republican party?

      Exactly what is the republican political platform, and back track it to 2017 to today to see if there is any change or continuity?

      That is why, if I were president Trump, I would run as an independent. It would be a real vote of confidence. It would separate those that want Trump from those that work against Trump.

      For Trump it would be a no lose venture. If he wins then the vote is confident, and if he loses he would have taken the country off of the resist Trump and maybe back on to MAGA even without Trump, doubful?

      The democrats would have to deal with the republican, and Trump. The republican would have to deal with the democrats and Trump. Neither the republicans nor the democrats have done anything for the country and the people. Trump is the only one that can run on performance and putting the country and its people first.

      If a republican or a democrat could beat Trump running as an independent, then the people don't deserve MAGA. Trump is the only one that even cares about MAGA.

      The democrat voters do what they always do follow the party, but the republican voters are a disappointment. Even more disappointing are the Trump voters that would vote for someone else.

      As for the topic of this article, the republicans with the Mueller report in and available should be now moving swiftly to investigate what Mueller didn't investigate. Starting with Mueller and Comey over their conspiracy to get a special counsel. And then include Rosenstein who fired Comey and then appoints Mueller. If this had happened to the democrats and Hillary you can imagine their rage. I expect the republicans and Trump to do what the democrats would have done.

      The investigation should start leading up to when the FBI made Trump a target of any investigation. That is my opinion was the Australian and Papadopoulus meeting. And considering that nothing become of that meeting, Papadopoulus got 14 days for lying. Is that really the seed for a 3 year investigation and unlimited spying on Trump? NO!

      Add in the Carter Page as that brought in the Russians, when the DNC alleged that the Russians hacked their emails. And that would bring in the US intel agencies to be investigated as to why they didn't verify the allegation by actually getting on the DNC email servers and making their own forensic analysis. And how do 17 independent US intel agencies stand behind that allegation and the unverified Steele report. 17 agencies and not even one investigation into the report, that is incompetence or a conspiracy, In either case, it warrants a deep investigation.

      That is just the tip of what I think should be done Now!

      Finally, imo, these hoax investigations have done a better and more strategic influence on the 2018 election for the democrats. Now, with the Mueller report exploding as a gas cloud, it now is influencing the 2020 election.

      This influence was intentional by the democrats from even before Trump won the election, and it continued with the Kavanaugh hearing as one example, and then the Mueller report that could have and should have been ended in the summer of 2018 not only went to the 2018 election. It went five months past it, and now is influencing the 2020 election.

      This is a clear and present danger to the integrity of US elections. No foreign power could have accomplished the adverse influence achieved by the democrats.

      When the former watergate prosecutor states Mueller does have a strong case for Trump's obstruction and that he should just state so in front of Congress and when Trump tries to assert executive privilege of McGahn after he waived it by allowing him to talk to Mueller, just tells you Trump ties to obstruct all the time. What a cancer on the presidency!

      And I am sure MAGA that it will clear Trump and his men of any wrongdoing criminally and morally, which is what I would expect. I will be shocked if you state there could be grounds for obstruction in any of the 10 cited cases. What Barr is now doing by flaunting the rule of law and ignoring subpoenas is setting a very bad standard by the legal community. Lawyers really are no better than a car salesman. Trump has set the tone for all his minions to follow and it is basically fuck the law, I can do what I want.

      The report is out, just look at it for yourself. I did?Right now my article is over 8,000 words and based verbatim on Volume II of the Mueller Report.

      well, the face-off will never happen, but Mueller in front of Congress might help a lot.

      I think the only way this is going to get resolved is to have Mueller and Barr have a public face-to-face meeting and settle the interpretations everybody else.

      Trump can't keep McGahn from testifying because he is no longer a government employee. Trump has no jurisdiction over him or any of the other people who have been fired or simply left the Trump administration.
