Bill Barr is not the most content bunny in the briar patch considering how he has to contend with being undercut by Donald Trump’s endless tweeting, which has the effect of throwing a spotlight on Barr’s nefarious deeds. Barr has been committed from square one to making RussiaGate go away and his idiot boss keeps blowing his cover. Greg Sargent, Washington Post:

Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress!

This is a straight-up celebration of the fact that in intervening for Stone — who was convicted of obstructing Congress and witness tampering in connection with investigations into Russian subversion of our election — Barr is doing the president’s political bidding.

In their original recommendation of a stiff sentence for Stone, prosecutors explicitly noted he’d obstructed an investigation designed to provide a full accounting of that attack on our political system.

But now Trump is openly declaring that in interfering, Barr is helping to delegitimize that investigation entirely. In short, Barr — who has tasked prosecutor John Durham with “reviewing” the investigation’s origins — is helping Trump make the Russian attack disappear.

This isn’t the way you run a black ops mission. This is supposed to be covert and Trump is too stupid to know from covert. So Bill Barr is pissed at Trump, and this could get amusing fast. Trump wasn’t expecting his pit bull to turn on him, he’s supposed to attack his enemies. Washington Post:

Attorney General William P. Barr pushed back hard Thursday against President Trump’s criticism of the Justice Department, saying, “I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody.”

In an interview with ABC News, Barr said the president’s highly critical tweets aimed at the department “make it impossible for me to do my job.”

Barr said he was prepared to accept the consequences of speaking out against the president.

“I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me,” the attorney general said.

And Barr’s got incoming fire coming from all sides. Here’s a viral tweet from former Inspector General Michael R. Bromwich.

Bill Barr was perfectly happy to throw battery acid on the concept of prosecutorial independence and then Trump had to go and screw it all up by congratulating him on his subterfuge. And he says that John Kelly is the one who can’t keep his mouth shut. Sweet Jesus.

Making it impossible to do the job in secret, he means.

Bingo. You win the prize. 45 needs to STFU so Barr can do his undermining with no one knowing about. Those 4 prosecutors who quit – bravo for them. It brought it to the light.

Pro tip for Tubby The Ewok: as long as you’re working for Orange Crush, you’ve lost the right to tell him to STFU. We both know that’s not how he operates.

I sometimes said/wrote in 2016 & that what bugged (hell, angered & even horrified) the GOP establishment wasn’t so much the racist stuff Trump was saying to whip up the rank & file GOP voters, but rather the fact he refused to speak in the “code” they’d developed in the 1960s with the “southern strategy” and added to & honed in the decades afterwards. Dog-whistle politics served them pretty damned well but they were downright scared when Trump said the shit straight up. It took over a year before they realized that their base which ate that shit up had… Read more »

Throwing wrenches into the machine that barely keeps you out of prison, might NOT be the best thing for DJT to do, BUT since himself is the real whistleblower supreme, can’t help it … cannot just say simple things during pressors, has to embellish every statement with little mindless drivel … he opens his mouth and words escape him so he switches to the latest, “big thing”, on his mind, it might be a chat with Barr, so he goes there and says something about Barr’s doing such a good job for me in ________, City, keeping those people there… Read more »

Yeah it’s hard enough to be a sneaky little shit when you are a three hundred pound lout like Barr. And trumps got to come along and muck it all up on top of it. And what are you going to prove? That Russia didn’t give trump the election? That’s not going to happen. To much documentation on it exists.

Perhaps Bill Barr is being visited nightly by the ghost of AG John Mitchell.

Was watching t.v. when there was a break on ABC. Seemed super important. It was the interview with Barr. Now we’ve come to this. A journalist gets an interview and the network will break in with ‘BREAKING NEWS!” Interesting that he went to ABC and no FUX. Was this a warning to 45? The Senate repugs caused this by giving 45 a free pass. May they rue the day.

An excellent point, actually…the method of delivery does send a message. But I wonder if the message was for some other audience besides Trump.

I don’t know how this is being covered at fox, but everything I watched on this shows that nobody is buying barr’s bs story. I have trouble, however, thinking that trvmp would agree to be smacked down on a national network so they could cover their collusion. He’s going to be asked about it by tons of reporters and will no doubt lose his shit at the implication that barr disrespected him.

Let’s leave that diss to Michael Bloomberg, who no doubt will rub it in Trump’s face in a week’s time. This is likely these two thinking they’re being clever when they’re actually being transparent enough to be used as Plexiglass.

Because he used to have a soul and now he’s a shill.

We have him to thank for running out of defensive strategy to save Bush The First from impeachment , just before the election Bill Clinton. won , by pardoning everybody who was already convicted , and gifting the nation with the after effects of Iran Conra , which without witnesses , documents , or proof of any kind , I’m just going to flat out blame him for the present day opiod crisis , right here and now .

Is it just me. , or has anyone else noticed; Barr’s got the facial equivalent of a rump roast ?
