How many times has President Donald Trump made a statement that was universally mocked and ridiculed as a “conspiracy theory” by his enemies, only to have it turn out to be completely true later? Too many times to count, right? A few months ago, Trump asked a very pointed question as to whether US Attorney John Durham is actually a real person. Do you think Trump knows something? Maybe Durham’s not a real person. We’ve never heard the guy speak, and we’ve only ever seen the same two photographs of “Durham” on the internet.
Here’s something else from the Justice Department that we now know was completely fake: Bill Barr’s stint as US Attorney General.
Quick! Name Bill Barr’s three most significant accomplishments during the 22 months he spent as Attorney General!
Actually, we won’t wait, because most people would be hard-pressed to even name one significant accomplishment of Barr’s.
He didn’t indict a single one of the planners and co-conspirators who carried out the Russia hoax. Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Strzok, Page, Obama, Biden and others committed an actual insurrection against America by perpetrating the Russia hoax – and Bill Barr never did anything about it. One low-level attorney got probation for falsifying information on a FISA application. Barr let the rest of them walk free.
Does anyone really believe the alleged “Durham Report” is going to come out one of these days and finally lead to indictments over the Russia hoax?
Bill Barr allowed FBI Director Christopher Wray to run around all last year claiming that Antifa is an “idea.” Meanwhile, very real Antifa members were burning down buildings all across the country, assassinating Trump supporters in sophisticated hit jobs, and punching little old ladies in wheelchairs for attending Republican fundraising dinners. Bill Barr didn’t put a single Antifa cell leader or financier in jail for very real crimes against the United States. The same goes for the leaders of Black Lives Matter, the Democrat Party’s other domestic terrorism group.
It was literally Bill Barr’s job to stop racial discrimination in the federal government, and yet “Critical Race Theory” oozed its way into every federal department and agency, and the US military, right under Barr’s nose. Maybe he was having a nice nap under a shade tree out back after eating too many PB&J sandwiches, but that was a pretty big thing for a supposedly sharp Attorney General to miss.
Which brings us to the latest revelation about Bill Barr sitting around like a big fat lump of goo and not doing his job. This comes by way of President Trump, who publicly released a letter that he received in June from the US Attorney in Pennsylvania, a patriot named William McSwain.
McSwain first reminded President Trump of the fact that Pennsylvania’s state Attorney General Josh Shapiro declared – just days before the 2020 election – that Donald Trump “could not win.” This was a brazenly partisan statement from a public official who is supposed to be non-partisan when carrying out their duties, obviously.
After the election, McSwain says that his office was flooded with reports of election fraud and irregularities. McSwain wanted permission to investigate those fraud claims, so he asked his boss (Bill Barr) for permission. McSwain writes:
“Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities. I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation — the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.”
Barr most likely gave that same stand-down order to every US Attorney in the country who asked permission to investigate election fraud. And then Bill Barr turned around to the American people and told us he had seen “no evidence of fraud.”
I guess it’s easier when you don’t bother to look in the first place and forbid your underlings from investigating all of the fraud claims they’ve received. Hopefully this letter from the US Attorney in Pennsylvania will give that state’s Senators the boost of confidence they may need to actually carry out a forensic audit of the 2020 election. And good for McSwain for speaking out!
Bill Barr really did sit around like a lump for two years while doing nothing.
