Looks like someone is tired of all the theatrics….

The Hill

“The top Democratic congressional leaders are calling on special counsel Robert Mueller to testify on Capitol Hill as soon as possible following what they describe as Attorney General William Barr‘s “partisan” handling of the release of the Mueller report.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) released a joint statement early Thursday, hours ahead of when a redacted version of Mueller’s report is expected to be released, and hours after a New York Times report revealed that White House lawyers and Department of Justice officials have already repeatedly discussed details of Mueller’s conclusions.

The Democratic leaders laid out a series of actions they say show Barr as being loyal to the president.

“Attorney General Barr’s regrettably partisan handling of the Mueller report, including his slanted March 24th summary letter, his irresponsible testimony before Congress last week, and his indefensible plan to spin the report in a press conference later this morning — hours before he allows the public or Congress to see it — have resulted in a crisis of confidence in his independence and impartiality,” Pelosi and Schumer wrote in a statement.”

Personally, I think this should have been done three weeks ago when Barr initiated act one of this Kabuki shit-show.

But maybe they had their reasons to delay.

What steps will Barr and Trump take to prevent Mueller’s testimony?

He seems a bit old to be drafted into the Space Force.

I am certainly shocked at Barr’s spec-hack-ular performance, as I know we all are. The only question is will we ever see the real report? Will the Beltway press do its job? (Sure thing, Nick.) Will some actual patriot leak the damned thing? Or does IOKIYAR remain the Supreme Law of the Land, now and forever? I’m betting on that last one. At this point the only hope is that enough of the public sees through this pathetic-yet-angering sham. 2020 is it, folks. Trump can’t move off 42-44 if he cures cancer or shoots a puppy. But that still might… Read more »

Nick, I completely understand discouragement. However, I’m of the mind that Democrats who don’t vote elect Republicans.

Me too! My snarking was, well … me, snarking. Too many folks really do stay home if the D candidate favors a $14.37 min wage as opposed to a 14.73; that kind of thing. Like the folks who threw wadded-up cash at Hillary Clinton last time. Them.

Glad to hear it! And glad you’re snarking! Too many people are on that purity train and they get severely on my nerves. There is no perfect candidate, just like there’s no perfect job (a lot of folks don’t get that one, either) But whoever our candidate ends up being, I will vote for him or her regardless. And I do hope Mueller does testify before Congress.

If the mainstream media were at all vigilant and the “watchdog” they claim to be, their top story would be how these machinations are clear proof of something to hide and not the behavior of someone who is innocent. Innocence should speak for itself.
