The bloated tick who has taken human form, strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr, is laying his insect eggs in the department:
Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he had appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as a special counsel in October under the same federal regulations that governed special counsel Robert Mueller in the original Russia probe. He said Durham’s investigation has been narrowing to focus more on the conduct of FBI agents who worked on the Russia investigation, known by the code name of Crossfire Hurricane.
Under the regulations, a special counsel can be fired only by the attorney general and for specific reasons such as misconduct, dereliction of duty or conflict of interest. An attorney general must document such reasons in writing.
So the clap-back from the Little Kremlin on the Potomac will continue on for the rest of our lives. It’s gonna be another benghazi, Benghazi, BENGHAZI!!1!
Next up: ka-BOOM if it’s true!
A court ruling made public Tuesday indicates that federal prosecutors have been pursuing an investigation into potential bribery in connection with an effort to secure a pardon from President Donald Trump, although details of the inquiry remain murky.
The opinion issued by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell in August and released in a heavily redacted form Tuesday shows that Howell granted prosecutors permission to examine emails involving lawyers and an effort to seek a pardon for someone whose name was deleted from the public version of the opinion.
“The attorney-client privilege does not protect communications disclosed to third parties,” the judge wrote.
This totally scans as being something Prznint Stupid would do, it’s on-point for his brand of corruption. “You want a favor? How much you want a favor?” The rumor —aside from Prznint Stupid’s Stupidest Lawyer ™ Rudy Giuliani’s denials— is that it is all sorts of friends and family asking for blanket pardons, which in itself is a crime and cover-up.
Then again, Bill Barr does not want to go down with the ship!
WASHINGTON (AP) — Disputing President Donald Trump’s persistent, baseless claims, Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.
Barr’s comments, in an interview with the The Associated Press, contradict the concerted effort by Trump, his boss, to subvert the results of last month’s voting and block President-elect Joe Biden from taking his place in the White House.
Barr told the AP that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
…which sounds pretty positive until you learn that the DOJ spokesperson contacted Politico’s morning email thingie to say that the eff’ery will continue:
A DOJ spokesman reached out to us late Tuesday to say: “Some media outlets have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election. That is not what the Associated Press reported nor what the Attorney General stated. The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible.”
So, Barr’s participation in the
Potemkin Village, er, election fraud fantasy continues.
