The Injustice of the Left’s Fury Against Barr

The Daily Signal/Victor Davis Hanson:

Democrats have grown infuriated by Attorney General William Barr’s indifference to their hysteria over the Trump-Russia collusion narrative.

Barr recently released a brief summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s conclusions that President Donald Trump did not collude with the Russians to warp the 2016 election.

Barr added that Mueller had not found enough evidence to recommend that Trump be indicted for obstruction of justice for the non-crime of collusion.

Progressives, who for 22 months had insisted that Trump was a Russian asset, were stunned—but only for a few hours.

Almost immediately, they redirected their fury toward Barr’s summation of the Mueller report. Yet few rational people contested Barr’s synopses about collusion and obstruction.

Both the Mueller report and Barr’s summation can be found on the internet. Anyone can read them to see whether Barr misrepresented Mueller’s conclusions.

Again, there have been few criticisms that Barr was wrong on his interpretation that there was no collusion and not enough evidence to indict on obstruction of justice.

But now Democrats are calling for Barr to resign or be impeached for not regurgitating the unproven allegations against Trump.

In other words, Barr acted too much like a federal prosecutor, rather than a tabloid reporter trafficking in allegations that did not amount to criminal conduct.

The besmirching of Barr’s conduct is surreal. He certainly has not done anything even remotely approximating the conduct of former President Barack Obama’s two attorneys general.

Has Barr dubbed himself the president’s “wingman” or called America a “nation of cowards,” as former Attorney General Eric Holder did?

Has Barr’s Department of Justice monitored reporters’ communications or ordered surveillance of a television journalist? Has Barr used a government jet to take his family to the Belmont Stakes horse race, as Holder did?

Has Barr met secretly on an airport tarmac with the spouse of a person his Justice Department was investigating, as did former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who had such a meeting with Bill Clinton? MORE HERE

  1. The Dims are a « constitutional crisis »…
    Because they could not convict an innocent man with no evidence,
    This is unheard-of, in a democracy it’s the voice vote,
    This is not a Democracy, it is a Republic it requires proof of guilt.
    Nancy Pullosee’s IQ is right around 60 to 75, with slurred speech.

  2. Although it is always an outrage when nefarious malevolent actions are directed at any good man, aside from maybe Mike Pence I can’t think of anyone better equipped to handle these slings and arrows. Integrity, honor, a measured even imperturbable demeanor, he is a rock. Sure, he is human, and any attempt to malign unjustly stings, but he knows he has right and the law on his side and he took the job not for any glory or aggrandizement but strictly for love of country. When all is said and done, the next time Trump feels the urge to award someone the Medal of Freedom, here is an appropriate candidate.

  3. Eric ‘kick them while they are down’ Holder was the first FED AG to be held in CONTEMPT.

    So in their world, it means NOTHING, so I my world IF Barr is??

    Who fcukin’ cares?

    Like a certain Peace Prize given to his Boss, means nothing these days…

    Barr is the bear (h/t claudia) that is sleeping in the den and ready to come out to EAT, forage and create his own type of CHAOS.

  4. Today I read that at Rosenstein’s “going away” shindig, in his remarks, Barr laughed a good gut laugh at the Ds and being held in contempt. This is going to be good.

  5. Has Barr coordinated presidential pardons for well connected donors in exchange for payments to the president’s private foundation like Holder did with Marc Rich and others?

    Has Barr been recently photographed with black supremacist terrorist supporting bigot Farrakhan-vict?
