NYTimes Imitates Politico Gossiping About Barr

Separated At Birth?

There’s some speculation in our failed political press that strategic hire AG Bill Barr is gonna You’re Fired hisself:

“Attorney General William P. Barr is considering stepping down before President Trump’s term ends next month, according to three people familiar with this thinking. One said Mr. Barr could announce his departure before the end of the year.”

…but not before the statute of limitations. Oops, did I say that out loud?

“It was not clear whether the attorney general’s deliberations were influenced by Mr. Trump’s refusal to concede his election loss or his fury over Mr. Barr’s acknowledgment last week that the Justice Department uncovered no widespread voting fraud. In the ensuing days, the president refused to say whether he still had confidence in his attorney general.

In other words, The NYTimes has nothing but conjecture. This is usually Tiger Beat on the Potomac’s, um, beat: gossip.

“One of the people insisted that Mr. Barr had been weighing his departure since before last week and that Mr. Trump had not affected the attorney general’s thinking. Another said Mr. Barr had concluded that he had completed the work that he set out to accomplish at the Justice Department.”

Wrecking it? On wonders. Anyway, the article is triple by-lined and yet has no sources listed.

I think Barr is gonna stay on to the bitter end; he has a lot of tracks to cover and paper to shred, and he knows his days as a public servant are over and his career is radioactive now.

    High hopes for that. Hope is a cruel mistress, though.

    Low Barr has been added to the bus route. Guess he’ll have to settle for a plea bargain.

    It’s not as though having quit early, will protect him from the consequences of the laws he has broken.
    They can find him hiding in his basement.

    The rats are jumping the USS White House as quickly and quietly as they can, their pockets jammed with whatever cash they could get their paws on. In Barr’s case, his tenure was about amassing power and protecting Trump and Co. but there’s bound to be money included in the deal. So does he resign to avoid the embarrassment of being tweeted out (although he clearly has no capacity for shame) or does he stick out the last weeks?

    I’m certain Jabba will slither away from this as adroitly as he has from any involvement with the Trump girls’ Uncle Jeff.

    So, he’s not getting a pardon, eh?

    Can we say “states evidence in return for a reduced sentence”?

    Honor among thrives is a romantic myth, but even if it weren’t these guys are the worst examples of humanity most of us will ever be exposed to.
