Bill Barr: How To Obstruct Justice Without Really Trying

Bill Barr Blows

You guys, Bill Barr tried his hand at You’re Fired’ing someone, and eff’ed it up:

Berman, as you might recall, is investigating Lord Damp Nut’s second-stupidest lawyer Wrong-Again Rudy Giuliani who is clearly in violation of the Logan Act for negotiating the quid-pro-quo details of that perfect phone call that ended up impeaching The Russian Usurper. I guess Barr was hoping that Prznint Stupid’s 3-ring Covid Super-Spreader Circus in Tulsa would bury this news, but Berman ain’t going nowhere. In fact, he cannot, as he states.

So who would replace Berman, what’s the plan?

The Daily Beast:(emphasis mine)

Jay Clayton, appointed by Trump as chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission in 2017, would be nominated as Berman’s replacement as U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, with District of New Jersey U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito moving across the Hudson River to serve as the acting SDNY U.S. Attorney “effective July 3.” Barr said that “Craig will work closely with the outgoing United States Attorney to ensure a smooth transition.”

The move stunned officials and trial attorneys inside Main Justice, as the Department’s Washington, D.C. headquarters is known. Two individuals in the Department’s Civil Division confirmed to The Daily Beast that Berman had been offered and declined the chance to run the division, where assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt had abruptly announced her departure this week, but declined. Barr reportedly then asked for Berman’s resignation and, when Berman didn’t offer it, the attorney general simply announced it.

One other official said the news of Berman’s apparent ouster came as a shock, as did the decision to nominate Clayton, who has no prosecutorial experience.

This might/could be/is Barr’s most blatant Obstruction of Justice, and I wonder if in an election year the House would attempt it.  It’s impossible for me to think that this gang of incompetents would destroy their careers to save the moron who would be king. Everything Trump Touched Dies, indeed.

    Barr is Trump’s hitman. And he is supposed to be a genius who is fearless and brutal in his job. Like Trump, he believes he can simply issue orders and they’ll be followed because he bullies everyone and threatens them with the loss of their jobs. He’s a Nazi-style enforcer.

    But my heart lifted when Berman rebuked Barr and made his statement last night. Good for him, someone with guts! Although he will still most likely be removed, he can go before the House this week and state his case for the record. Everyone will see that Barr flat-out lied that Berman tendered his resignation. Republicans will say it doesn’t matter because unlike Berman (a registered Republican, fwiw) they are all spineless cowards.

    In a country built on pledges of honor, Trump and his administration are flagrant criminals and liars. I doubt that they’ll pay any prices for their lies and outright crimes, but the least we can do is put it on the record.

    A coinky-dink? That a Federal Judge just ordered that tRump does, indeed, have to release certain tax returns…… the SDNY? Except that Berman wasn’t so much involved in investigating & prosecuting that, as he was in going after Rudy Colludy.

    So be prepared for more attorneys falling out of windows, er, drinking the Poloniumin tea, er, hitting the Unemployment lines.

    I wasn’t surprised that Barr came right back at Berman. If you read that letter Barr sent to him, he essentially tries to scold Berman for resisting. It’s a snotty and petulant letter from a pissy little fat man who imagines himself to be the boss.

    It’s tough to have all of this happen during a shit-filled rally with a side of Coronavirus and some racial tensions as a garnish. Barr did this on the sly and got called on it. In a perfect world, Barr would be impeached and eventually imprisoned, but we all know it’s far from a perfect world.
