On June 8, 2018, William Barr wrote, just for the fun to it, a memo to Donald Trump’s Justice Department saying that the Mueller investigation of Russian meddling in our 2016 election was “fatally misconceived” (https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/24/politics/barr-memo-mueller/index.html).
No wonder Trump nominated him to be the chief law enforcement official in the land.
Today, Barr, now Trump’s Attorney General, said that there was no “collusion” between Vladimir Putin’s intense desire to be the key player in Trump’s so-called victory, and the Trump campaign.
This, after he received Mueller’s Report on Friday evening, and within less than 48 hours, he claims to have evaluated carefully what Mueller took almost two years to accomplish.
And, of course, Trump says he’s been totally exonerated.
Trump is notorious for twisting words out of context and making totally false and misleading statements, especially when Barr made a point today of saying that Trump was not exonerated.
Mueller did not interview Trump under oath; had he perjured himself, well, you know…..
Most probably, Trump will never read the Mueller report, because he doesn’t read, he just watches Fox News to see whether Fox News is saying things about him that he insists that Fox News say about him.
Associate solitary reporter Melissa Smith, who covers Congress for us, spoke, moments ago, with House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY). Nadler took Smith aside and told her that no person should be nominated to be Attorney General of the United States who has prejudged a matter of such delicacy.
As Trump entered his White House today after being informed of Barr’s announcement, the only thing he would say to reporters was that “America is the greatest nation in the world.”
But as he went to sit his fat body in the Oval Office to send out his next tweet, repeating how much he loves Kim Jongun, he told associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones that he’s firing Barr because he expects Barr to protect him (just as he expected Jeff Sessions to protect him), and, much more importantly, he expects Barr to repeat, every hour on the hour, that just as he’s making America great again, he expects complete loyalty (that’s how Comey got on Trump’s wrong side).
Trump told ASR Jones, “Barr didn’t say that I’m the greatest man who ever walked this earth. Because he didn’t say that, I’m letitng him go.”
When Jones asked him who his next Attorney General will be, he said, “Johanna, that’s the stupidest question I’ve ever heard!”
Jones waited, breathlessly.
"I’ve narrowed it down to Matt Whitaker and Leonard Leo. Now get the f___ out of here."
