William Barr Unfit to be Attorney General

Attorney General William Barr has perpetrated a Cover Up to Protect Trump with his 4 page “Barr Report”.

He is behaving like a Trump’s personal attorney by absolving Trump of Crimes in his 4 page Report & defending Trump’s Emergency Funding for the Wall Veto.

 

Sen. Mazie Hirono from Hawaii tells William Barr off to his face, recounting his long list of cover-ups and abhorrent behavior.

Also during the hearing Barr made the ridiculous claim that “If the president feels a proceeding is unfounded, the president does not have to sit there constitutionally and allow it to run its course. The president could terminate the proceeding and it would not be a corrupt intent because he was being falsely accused.”

William Barr’s History Of Lying To The Public

 

William Barr has a history of getting it wrong. From designing warrantless surveillance programs to justifying the president’s power to disregard acts of Congress, Barr has advanced dubious legal theories that have been rejected by the courts, Congress, and the public. (Source: aclu.org)

Barr Approved of violating International Law and Mislead Congress in 1989: Barr provided the Bush administration with the legal justification for arresting fugitives overseas, even if doing so violated of international law. His support for arresting fugitives abroad was most strikingly similar to his handling of the Mueller report and his attitude toward Congress’ requests to read the full report and ask him questions about it.

In October 1989, four months after Barr issued a secret OLC memo authorizing the FBI to make these arrests, news of the memo leaked to the press, as Ryan Goodman, an expert on national security and human rights law at New York University, detailed recently in an article for the blog Just Security. The memo appeared to have been used to abduct Panamanian leader Manuel Noriega and bring him to the United States on drug trafficking and money laundering charges earlier that year.

Members of Congress demanded to see the memo. Barr refused to release it. Instead, he offered an account that he said “summarizes the principal conclusions.” As Goodman notes, that’s the exact language that he used in describing the four-page letter he sent to Congress in March upon receiving the Mueller report.

It took a couple of years for Congress and the public to get the full OLC memo. When they did, Goodman recounts, it became clear that Barr’s summary had “omitted some of the most consequential and incendiary conclusions from the actual opinion.”

• Mueller’s Report: Barr has stated that he will NOT release Mueller report to the public. What the public saw was BARR’S report in which he LIED about Mueller’s findings and exhonerated Trump of wrong doing.

• Barr’s Memo: The fact that Barr created a 20 page memo critiquing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference raises questions about whether Barr deliberately sought to curry favor with Trump by taking a position favorable to him in order to secure a top government position. Barr’s statements condemning the Mueller investigation plus his refusal to release Mueller’s Report to the public unfiltered raises concerns that he may have a hidden agenda to Protect Trump, no matter what Mueller’s findings reveal.

 

• William Barr Condoned Obstructing Justice in The Iran-Contra Affair: In 1992, William Barr recommended President George H.W. Bush grant Christmas Eve, “Cover-Up” pardons to six men, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger and former national security adviser Robert McFarlane.

This gave clemency to people who had been officials in the administration of President Ronald Reagan, including former Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger who had been set to go on trial to face charges about lying to Congress.

The independent prosecutor in the case, Lawrence Walsh felt the pardons represented a miscarriage of justice stating; “It demonstrates that powerful people with powerful allies can commit serious crimes in high office, deliberately abusing the public trust without consequences”.

This proves Barr condones putting certain people “above the law” and two (2) Justices Systems; one for the Rich and Powerful from his Party, and another for everyone else.

• Obstruction of justice: The 19-page memo sent to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who was overseeing Mueller’s probe, argued that Trump’s firing of then-FBI Director James Comey in May 2017 did not constitute obstruction of justice.  This is another example of Barr’s flawed thinking and reasoning. It is CLEAR that the primary reason Trump fired Comey was to stop investigations into wrong doing by Trump and his campaign personnel.

William Barr Helped Build America’s Surveillance State

UPDATE: On Feb. 14, 2019, the Senate confirmed William Barr to be the next attorney general of the United States by a vote of 54-45.William Barr, President Trump’s nominee for attorney general, has a history of getting it wrong.

• Barr Was The Godfather Of The NSA’s Bulk Data Collection Program: While serving in the George H.W. Bush administration, Barr helped develop what became a “blueprint” for the National Security Agency’s mass phone surveillance program (Source: aclu.org).  More details about this at aclu.org/blog/national-security/privacy-and-surveillance/william-barr-helped-build-americas-surveillance

The American people are against this. Not one congressman brought this up during Barr’s confirmation hearings.

 

During a staged veto signing ceremony with Trump surrounded by “Yes-Men Trump Praisers”, William Barr behaved like a sycophant instead of the nation’s chief law enforcement officer by defending Trump’s Veto when legal experts have stated Trump declaring a National Emergency for his wall is an abuse of power.

Barr said in the Oval Office that the president’s veto over congresses rebuke of his declaring a national emergency was “clearly authorized under the law and consistent with past precedents” and “the humanitarian and security crisis we have on the border right now is exactly the kind of emergency that presidents are permitted to address under the National Emergencies Act”.

 

Even Fox’s Judge Napolitano says Trump can’t declare national emergency over border wall funding.

Every credible legal expert has stated Trump’s declaring a National Emergency for his Wall is an abuse of power and is illegal. This is another example of why William Barr is unfit to be the United States Attorney General.

Barr: It’s Not Obstruction of Justice If the Obstruction Works

Attorney General William Barr’s Senate testimony included an amazing argument that President Trump did not obstruct justice because the charges against him were false. Robert mueller did not find the charges were false. And Trump prevented the truth.

 

Bill Barr To Become Caporegime With Own Family Within Trump Crime Family

The Matt Whitaker era has served its purpose. As a transition from Confederate Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Whitaker’s illegal appointment, dull wits, and open contempt for the rule of law served to set the bar exceedingly low for his permanent replacement. That replacement will be William Barr, who was just confirmed by the Senate.

According to the above article, the only job Barr seems committed to executing, will be to protect Trump from the Mueller investigation, without committing abuses of power so obvious that the mainstream media notices the corruption.

“Mary Daly, Barr’s oldest daughter and the director of Opioid Enforcement and Prevention Efforts in the deputy attorney general’s office, is leaving for a position at the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit, a Justice official said.

Tyler McGaughey, the husband of Barr’s youngest daughter, has been detailed from the powerful US attorney’s office in Alexandria, Virginia, to the White House counsel’s office, two officials said”.

Placing your family members in key positions to protect the president is not what a “normal” attorney general does.

Trump already thinks the White House counsel’s office are his personal lawyers and the attorney general is his personal lawyer, not the country’s. Placing his son-in-law in the White House Counsel’s office suggests that there will be a coordinated strategy between the Justice Department and the WHC to protect the president”.
