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

6065

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.

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.

Remember: Russia attacked the US elections. Results are bogus. Trump, et al, are illegitimate.

Nothing but a pit of vipers all. Now there are vipers in every administration but nothing to this degree that I have seen in my lifetime.

First thing is that name tag. How dare they put Hon. on it. There is no honor in the entire Trump administration.

Well it’s the word of liars saying they haven’t communicated. I really believe they didn’t. Just like I believe the sun won’t rise tomorrow.

They are putting this out to cover Barr’s a**. Remember, he did not lie when Kamala asked him during his nomination hearing did any ask him to weigh in on any federal cases. He either did not answer or said ‘not directly’. As if Trump asks anything directly to anyone.
As if Trump is such a good man that is wrongly being persecuted, everyone is risking their own freedom to fight his battles.
