Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Attorney General William P. Barr said Monday that he did not expect the prosecutor he handpicked to review the 2016 FBI investigation into President Trump's campaign would investigate former president Barack Obama or former vice president Joe Biden -- an assertion that is likely to dismay Trump and his conservative allies.

Barr knows it's corrupt to spy on an opponent's political campaign.

Barr lambasted what he called the "increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon."

Pot meet kettle.

Barr made the comments because he KNOWS the Obama administration did not break the law. Fat Nixon is just dragging this ---- up to give his mouth breathers a bit of raw meat to start the chants "Lock him up" at every ------ show rally. It is just a regurgitation of 2016 bull------ chants of "Lock her up" that resulted in exactly no investigation or criminal charges against Hillary because there were no crimes. It was all bull------ from the bullschitter in chief.

And his morons are dumb enough to fall for it again.

Mitch has the audacity to tell Obama to shut up when Trump is tweeting ------ like this:

Donald J. Trump Retweeted

Dan Bongino @dbongino

Obama was the most corrupt President in US history.
Thank you.
Have a good night.
#Obamagate

To which Donnie responded:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

100% correct!

Barr understands that if they set the precedent for investigating former administrations they will be screwed when they are out of office.

Barr knows it's corrupt to spy on an opponent's political campaign.

When either political campaign this year:

-hires as its campaign manager a Ukrainian lobbyist with significant business ties to Russian oligarchs
-hires as its national security adviser an unregistered foreign agent who sat next to Putin at a dinner honoring his propaganda network
-hires as its foreign policy advisor a self-described advisor to the Kremlin
-countless other people who lied to federal agents about their contacts with Russia and deleted critical communications with Russians;

I will expect, no, demand, that our Justice Department launch an investigation into that campaign.

Ned Price nailed it. It's not whether Barr goes after President Obama or VP Biden, he will go after the FBI/DOJ employees who investigated and prosecuted the Russian interference in our election because he's trying to change the narrative and "exonerate Moscow." If you were in the DOJ or FBI and saw evidence that Russia was helping Hair Furor win re-election, would you put your career and freedom in jeopardy and report it, or would you just pretend not to see it? Man we have fallen a long way in just three and a half years, I actually miss AG Jeff Sessions, and I think that man is so vile he's not worth the saliva to spit on him.

Barr also wrote an OpEd stating that POTUS can't commit crimes doing anything he is allowed to do.
Obama is allowed to spy on traitors.
Barr's view is that any POTUS can not be investigated or charged for spying on anyone.

Barr is only covering his ass.

Fat Nixon knows it doesn't matter if there is an actual investigation or not. He will still continue to say there is one and his gaggle of morons will believe it. He may even go as far as to blame Barr as being part of the deep state. This schtick will sell like hot cake to the Golden Corral WWE base.

He has a pattern of blaming parts of the government he is in control of, like a dog growling at its own tail.

And the Right knew that Trump didn't break any laws...that didn't stop the Dems from moving forward. Hypocrisy is where you went wrong.

This is stupid.

Any HONEST person burning sixty seconds, as I did, will find the laws Trump has broken identified by number under Civil and Criminal Codes.

Let's try a little experiment here:

Does "the Right" know that trump cheated on his wife, Melania?
