Embattled and Facing Impeachment Cries, Barr Agrees To Testify Before Congress

466

This is good news, but since we’re dealing with William Barr, here, of course there is a shady aspect to it. Yes, he’ll testify but not for five weeks. The damnation of Aaron Zelinsky’s testimony before Congress that states in no uncertain terms that the Department of Justice was pressured to treat Roger Stone in a special manner because of his relationship to Donald Trump, has finally forced Barr’s hand. That, plus the threat of a subpoena. New Civil Rights Movement:

Isn’t it interesting how this is phrased, “accepted an invitation” like Congress has asked him to join them for tea. Very casual wording, considering the issue is obstruction of justice and he’s got a Greek chorus crying for his impeachment or resignation.

Barr is facing growing calls for his impeachment or for him to resign over what many – including two DOJ whistleblowers testifying before the House Wednesday – are calling his extreme politicization of the Justice Dept.

This will be the first time Barr has appeared before Congress to testify in more than a year. Barr was supposed to appear before the House on March 31 but did not. On June 1 he told House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler that “he would not appear at a hearing that the committee wanted to hold on June 9,” Roll Call reported.

This is explosive. Even for the Trump administration, this is extraordinary.

That is spot on. Barr has been acting as Trump’s Roy Cohn, his “killer,” and not as the nation’s top law enforcement officer. Trump used to ask, “where are my killers?” and he sure as hell didn’t have any in Jeff Sessions or Matthew Whitaker. But he got one in Barr.

It would be interesting to know why the five week delay. What, pray tell, could be more pressing on Barr’s calendar, or any attorney general’s for that matter, than charges of politicization of the DOJ and obstruction of justice? I guess we’ll find out.

So what? He’ll just say some nonsense and congress won’t do diddly-squat. If he walked in there with his derrière exposed, congress would simply pause for half an hour, so he might get hold of some pants and then ask him to make a statement. Trump and friends will applaud him for being a man’s man with a fine set of *honk* and congress won’t do nothin’
Just like when Sessions sat there and said “I don’t recall,” “I don’t recollect,” or “I don’t remember.”

1. He’ll make an excuse not to show. 2. He’ll show up but play dumb and lie. Either way nothing is going to happen other than the corruption just keeps raging on like covid.

Good catch. To distract from his niece’s book there’ll be Barr’s testimony (if he shows up which I doubt), & vice versa. I wouldn’t put it past him to get out a Sharpie draw a circle around Canada, label it Iran & nuke it either.

Anything he has to say is ‘classified’ regarding trump.

He will just make fake statements, lie, and complain that he’s insulted by the questions. Or he will ramble on about nothing. I’m thinking it was Kamala Harris that got into his head last time.
