Bill Barr Looks To Be The Second Coming Of John Mitchell After Parnas’ Conspiracy Allegation

Bill Barr must have a short memory, or else he’s exceptionally dense. Or perhaps he’s just overcome with the hubris that seems to infect everyone in Donald Trump’s orbit like it’s an airborne virus. Just last month, Bill Barr was purportedly impressing upon Trump that Rudy Giuliani was becoming problematic, to no avail, because Trump wouldn’t cut him loose. Now, Lev Parnas has told Rachel Maddow that Barr “had to have known everything” about Giuliani’s actions in Ukraine to get an announcement of an investigation into Joe Biden. According to former U.S. prosecutor Gene Rossi that would amount to conspiracy to bribe. I must add that based on the allegation of Lev Parnas, our esteemed Attorney General should probably retain a criminal defense attorney. What a conspiracy to bribe mess. Is our country’s AG the second coming of disgraced former AG John Mitchell? Crazy times. https://t.co/KUEht2d8Py — Gene Rossi (@rossi4va) January 16, 2020 I can tell Mr. Rossi where the beloved Justice Department is. They’re busy pursuing Trump’s political enemies. The New York Times has a story today, “Justice Department Investigating Years-Old Leaks and Appears Focused On Comey.” Trump is very focused on James Comey. Trump bizarrely disparaged Comey in front of China’s Vice Premier Liu He and senior administration officials at the White House Wednesday. Trump called upon Senator Chuck Grassley, who happened to be in attendance. Raw Story: “Chuck, will you stand up for a second?” Trump said. “He made Comey choke during the hearing,” the President continued, praising Grassley’s questioning of former FBI Director James Comey during a 2017 hearing. “Comey choked like a dog and he was being nice when he said it,” Trump continued, still addressing Grassley. It’s vintage Trump, cheap abuse. The full sentence Trump said to Grassley is, “Chuck asked Comey in a tough voice ‘Did you leak?'” and then the “choked like a dog” crack. In the same 24 hours, we have this article in the Times. Federal prosecutors in Washington are investigating a years-old leak of classified information about a Russian intelligence document, and they appear to be focusing on whether the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey illegally provided details to reporters, according to people familiar with the inquiry. The case is the second time the Justice Department has investigated leaks potentially involving Mr. Comey, a frequent target of President Trump, who has repeatedly called him a “leaker.” Mr. Trump recently suggested without evidence that Mr. Comey should be prosecuted for “unlawful conduct” and spend years in prison. The timing of the investigation could raise questions about whether it was motivated at least in part by politics. Prosecutors and F.B.I. agents typically investigate leaks of classified information around the time they appear in the news media, not years later. And the inquiry is the latest politically sensitive matter undertaken by the United States attorney’s office in Washington, which is also conducting an investigation of Mr. Comey’s former deputy, Andrew G. McCabe, that has been plagued by problems. If there is a witch hunt in Washington, this is it. Barr is weaponizing the resources of the Department of Justice to do Donald Trump’s dirty work. And of course it goes without saying that Barr denies what Lev Parnas is putting forth about  his involvement in Ukraine. As a reminder, here is the statement @TheJusticeDept released in September on Ukraine. It has […]
