Tuesday, December 01, 2020

The Justice Department hasn't found evidence to support allegations of widespread fraud that could have changed the result of last month's presidential election, Attorney General William Barr said in an interview with the Associated Press published Tuesday.

This is going to earn him a mean tweet; and maybe a pink slip. Funny that he would pick now to try to resuscitate his reputation, it's almost like he's afraid of being disbarred or of prosecution. He's probably hoping to get another government job in 2024 with somebody equally authoritarian curious but smarter than Dotard.

When the public figures out that they weren't supposed to know the truth, they'll look elsewhere.

Ah, the agony. The Fraud Commies must've gotten to Barr too. I knew he was dirty! What a loser.

Is there no one left who's pure, other than Stephen Miller, Rudy and my precious angel Ivanka?

Apparently there are some things that even Fixer Barr can't fix.

Lame Donald Duck shouldn't have tweeted about the AG/FBI not doing their job.

Of course, on QAnon and Newsmax, Barr will be portrayed as having been a Secret Commie all along.

And it's just a bit too late for Barr to try to be Elliot Richardson... that train left the station weeks ago.

You cannot uncover what does not exist.

Barr's opinion of anything now is a day late and a dollar short. And I doubt it will be enough to stop any investigation into Barr's corruption of the DOJ.

At least Barr has seen the light. And for him it does not too look good. Let the investigations begin? Or will Trumpy Pre-pardon him? His best hope the Republicans hang on to the 2 Georgia senate seats. So he doesn't get investigated to death by the senate at least.

So he better get busy and shore up Republican confidence in their elections in Georgia. And he better be quick about it!

AG Barr probably decided that since he was leaving in January anyway, it doesn't matter if Pres Trump fires him.

That was quick! Trumpy just made America great by making firing squads great again.

Unfortunately there is a line out back where they are taking them trumpy traitors to shoot them. He may have to wait his turn.

At this point, as low as he's sunk, being fired by Trump can only help his career.

That wasn't his ambition. By all accounts he was a true believer in the dictator model of American presidency. He had visions of personal power lasting decades.

Trump is going to fire him before he can leave gracefully. How funny.

I didn't think there was evidence of fraud until Barr said there wasn't. Now I'm starting to wonder if maybe there is.

I do not disagree with that.

However, at this point, AG Barr sees that he is leaving in January.

There is not enough time left to waste time impeaching Barr. But that doesn't mean he shouldn't be held accountable for his actions and be impeached if we could. Like your corrupt hero, Impeached (and now fired) Humpy Trumpy.

Trump already set the stage for that a couple days ago when he said the DOJ and the FBI were "in on it" (the coverup).

Also

Barr just delivered the Coup de gras to Trump's Supreme Court case. I'm glad to see Barr decided to go out on a high note.

I'd like to see the Epstein thing re-opened. Barr called his death the result of a "perfect storm". That should raise suspicions in itself.

A lot of people think Orange Jesus lies about everything. When I watch him, I see a man with an alternate reality. He doesn't behave like someone telling or caught in a lie. He behaves like a man creating and believing his own story.

Very carefully and, hopefully, on friendly terms. Barr knows where the bodies are buried and, as an attorney, an officer of the court and a public servant, he can't be held to any non-disclosure agreement.

This is what Woodward says in his book Rage. The orange turd doesn't lie. He usually believes what he's saying, even if that changes from day to day and has no connection to reality. Alternative facts don't ya know.

Crazy, isn't it? I don't know if I buy that entirely, but I can certainly see your point. Lacking education and training in psychology, I guess I don't understand what would have to be his mental illness. Where does one draw the line between mental illness and malevolence? Either way, Trump should never have been president.

It's already been drawn. Trump also believes he's 100 lbs lighter, smart, handsome, has his own hair and is real chick magnet.

Reading comprehension problem rears it's ugly head again!

Please point out where the "dr libs" are claiming AG Barr is a hero. "dr libs" are heaping additional, richly-deserved derision upon AG Barr.

If anything, the reality is AG Barr is being given the "hero to zero" (or worse!) treatment from conservatives.

Seriously, PHESTEROBOYLE, you really must get a better grip on reality!
