Mike Pence’s Chief Of Staff Throws Bill Barr To the Wolves

Don’t look for too much honor among thieves, at least not in this White House. Nobody is safe from anybody, as long as the agenda of the Big Orange Goon is served — and that mandate changes from moment to moment.  Marc Short, Chief of Staff to Mike Pence, said that Bill Barr acted of his own volition in seeking to reduce Roger Stone’s sentence and that Donald Trump didn’t say one word — directly, that is. Right. On CNN, Marc Short, chief of staff for Pence, insists AG Barr's move to reduce Roger Stone's sentencing recommendation was a decision he made independently of Trump's Twitter tantrum on the same topic because "he said the president has not called him directly to do these things." pic.twitter.com/AASijd7AeG — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 16, 2020 No, Trump might not have “called directly” but he certainly tweeted directly, not just to Bill Barr but to the world. As Michael Cohen said, Trump would speak in code and one would know what he wanted done. The code words which Trump employed with respect to Stone’s sentence, “horrible” and “unfair” were not exactly cryptography. Anybody reading that tweet knew what Trump wanted. Or, maybe Bill Barr didn’t know about the tweet, and never has cause to speak to Trump or know his mind, and just out of the blue decided poor Roger Stone had gotten a raw deal and it was time to weaponize the DOJ and help him out — and it’s mere coincidence that Stone is one of Trump’s oldest friends. Right. And Short also says that the White House has a lot of confidence in Barr — even after his comment that Trump should stop tweeting about him. Isn’t that amusing, that Short is trying to gaslight us into thinking that Barr’s P.R. stunt is real. So, let’s keep score here now: Barr is trying to convince us all he’s independent from Trump and so is the DOJ and Short is trying to convince us that everything in this White House is normal. It’s going to be a long year. Look at what we’ve already been through and it’s the middle of February.

The Losing Fight That Trump Just Can’t Quit

If you have a weak stomach, you might want to avoid Trump’s Twitter feed for a while, because it’s about to get bloody. Trump’s Department of Justice announced today that they won’t be filing charges or prosecuting former FBI Director Andrew McCabe. This follows the quiet announcement a few months ago that there will be no charges brought against McCabe’s former boss, James Comey either. This is going to get ugly quickly. For months now, it has been a standard part of Trump’s rally speech to not only opine, but to demand that “criminal” characters like Comey, McCabe, Brennan, Stzrok and Page be tried and imprisoned for their treason. But the fact that Trump’s own Justice Department keeps having to publicly have to decline to charge or prosecute these cases only undercuts his claims. But it isn’t going to stop. In fact, it’s only going to get worse as far as I can see. Because this is a fight that Trump can’t quit, simply because it goes to the core of his very being. When looking at Trump, and his reaction to the entire Trump-Russia investigation, you have to keep two things in mind. When it comes to Donald Trump, there are two absolutes, his omnipotence is absolute, and his thirst for payback in unquenchable. Trump has been impeached, and there isn’t a damn thing he can ever do to change that fact.His impotence to strike back at this outrage almost paralyzes him. Not only is he the third president to be impeached, but the first to have a member of his own party vote to convict him. And since he can’t change it, and it’s hard to sell it as an exoneration, he has to distract from it. Now, the Russia investigation is different. In the Russia investigation, Trump actually turned a clear victory into a -palpable defeat. And right now, he’s trying to take that palpable defeat and turn it into a total debacle. And because he’s Trump, and his dignity has been personally dented, he just can’t stop digging the hole deeper. Look what happened in the Russia investigation. After an exhaustive 20 month investigation, Robert Mueller did two things. He declined to opine on whether the President had committed crimes, since the standing DOJ policy prohibited charging a sitting president, and out of an abundance of caution, he declined to recommend that congress begin impeachment hearings on the matter. Game over. Exoneration, take a victory lap and move on. Except that Trump can’t do that. He can’t do that because his superiority was questioned, his power and authority were questioned, and his perceived honor was impugned. Exoneration isn’t enough for a man like Trump, he needs vindication, but most importantly, he needs retribution. And when Trump wants retribution, retribution is what he’s going to get. After all, why else would he install his own personal Roy Cohn to make sure his every whim is satisfied. Comey fucked with him, McCabe fucked with him, Brennan fucked with him, Stzrok fucked with him, Page fucked with him. And when somebody fucks with Trump, he fucks back ten times harder. All he has to do is to make his hysterical accusations, and the prosecutions follow. After all, it’s not like there’s a rule of law or anything in this country. But Trump […]
