Barr About to Blow Up Washington, Its Time to “Mueller” the FISA Report

In the next week we will have the new release from Barr, one that will again separate the partisan sides in this country, and once again Barr will re-write official findings and play-up his reading of materials. No matter how much we hoped that a neutral review would put the FISA bull shit to rest, that’s just not our reality right now. When Barr gets in the way we slump our heads and silently scream. It never ends. Reports are trickling out that Barr’s own appointed A.G. found only one questionable act, one which didn’t alter any outcome and that the FBI and intelligence agencies acted appropriately along the way. Then Barr rejected the central findings and will write his own conclusions. God help us. From a Salon column published in Rawstory: The official this time is the Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, but according to news reports, Barr is maneuvering behind the scenes to counter central conclusions that there was nothing major amiss in the start of the investigation of all-things-Russia. Of course. Long ago, and I mean long ago, Barr made his conclusion based on Right-Wing news reports and isn’t happy about the truth as found by some weak-kneed pussss, weak kneed guy who doesn’t “get it.” The reports indicate that a low-level lawyer changed one email after the fact to bolster (not invent) a warrant, but even the re-wording “bolster” didn’t impact the outcome. Within the giant machine that is the federal government, FBI, DOJ, et. al., they were unable to find anything else nefarious. while one could question judgments made along the way by top brass at the FBI, the call to launch an investigation was totally kosher. In other words, no “witch hunt,” as charged by Donald Trump and his team of defenders. This is not news or in any way damning. In every giant investigation across several agencies, involving dozens of top people, there will be “questionable decisions.” That just “is,” especially when one side  needs a specific outcome. But Barr, who undercut the force of the Mueller Report before it came out last spring, apparently is telling associates within Justice that he personally disagrees with that conclusion. Barr is heavily invested in finding fault with the origins of the report, having separately hired Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham to find evidence of wrongdoing, even criminal wrongdoing. “Heavily invested.” Pffft. No shit? He is “heavily invested” without anything to do with the fact that he hired the special counsel. That’s nothing. He’s heavily invested because he knows what the entire Right expects and he’s their soldier, careers are at stake. Moreover, it is personal to Barr in that he needs Trump to win next year in order to avoid a Democrot-appointed A.G. who would review “questionable decisions” made by Barr. It is not hyperbole to say that Barr needs a victory next November to ensure his ass stays out of prison. He wouldn’t be the first A.G. finding himself in prison for trying to cover a lawless president. So here we go. Except this one is going to be worse than Mueller by a factor on a logarithmic scale because Barr only took the Mueller report from damning to nuetral. Now he is going to take a neutral report and make it criminal. Or […]

Danger: Trump Signals Firing FBI Director, the Second Director Fired For Lack of “Loyalty”

FBI Director Christopher Wray agreed with the FBI I.G., accepting the conclusion in the internal investigation. Both the I.G. and Wray agreed with the report’s finding that FBI acted without any political bias in their investigation of Russian interference in the election. Wray also agreed that the FBI had absolute justification to investigate Russia and its actions with regard to the Trump campaign prior to the election. Of course, Trump finds their position unacceptable and may well have just signaled that he’s preparing to fire Wray. If he did fire Wray, he would obviously insert the most “loyal” candidate possible. I don’t know what report current Director of the FBI Christopher Wray was reading, but it sure wasn’t the one given to me. With that kind of attitude, he will never be able to fix the FBI, which is badly broken despite having some of the greatest men & women working there! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 10, 2019 My god, you asshole. I’m sorry folks but this is so obviously a signal that Wray is hanging on the thinest of threads and we will now expect Trump to fire Wray. Wray will be the second FBI director fired by Trump, and the termination will be based upon the lack of complete and total loyalty to the president personally. It is beyond outrageous and extremely dangerous. Traditionally, presidents knew the importance of appointing the best law enforcement director possible, without any regard for any political bent. Equally true is that any law enforcement candidate at the highest level prevented himself or herself from even adopting or considering any political consideration in any action. All candidates at that level were completely independent of the president to the point that Director Comey appreciated an invitation by President Obama to play basketball with a big group of all kinds of political positions, including Republicans, out of concern it would simply appear wrong. This independence has been embedded in our government without question. Trump cannot accept such a situation. He expects and demands complete loyalty to him because he alone is the government of the United States. He believes the constitution allows him to do “whatever I want.” He also could not care less that in reality, the constitution is written such that no president could adopt such a lawless position. Trump is the president that the framers feared most, the one that terrified them to such a degree he could be tossed out on his ass without any care that the he was a “duly elected president.” They meant what they said. An election doesn’t matter if the president broke from the limits in the constitution. FBI Directors were appointed for a period of ten years to ensure that no political considerations would enter into any equation. FBI Directors were simply not fired, period. Until Trump. The second firing in just a little over three years in a first term is beyond comprehension. Even Republicans should be terrified of such actions. But the framers never considered that there might be a party that simply accepted, like automatons, that their president is beyond question. The framers would find it abhorrent that a party, one in control of just one branch in the senate, would allow the president to basically takeover all government positions by requiring […]
