    Bill Barr Has Gone Rogue

    Pro tip from Pelosi: Barr’s gone rogue
    .
    Even in a ‘scandal’ marked more by hysteria and leaping to conclusions, this claim stands out as particularly puzzling. On what basis does Nancy Pelosi allege that Attorney General William Barr has “gone rogue”? Speaking with Morning Joe cohosts on MSNBC, Pelosi accused Barr of being complicit in “the cover-up of the cover-up.”

    Huh?
    .
    Speaker Pelosi says on AG Barr: "He's gone rogue … I think where they are going is the cover up of the cover up, and that's very really sad for them. To have a Justice Department go so rogue … now it just makes matters worse." pic.twitter.com/l6jhF1UzjJ

    — MSNBC (@MSNBC) September 27, 2019

    Presumably, this refers to the Department of Justice’s advice to Joseph Maguire in regard to the whistleblower complaint. The acting DNI testified yesterday to the House Intelligence Committee about his handling of the complaint, which included seeking advice from the DoJ and the White House. Because the complaint didn’t directly involve intelligence matters but did involve the presidential conduct of diplomacy, Maguire first needed to see if the White House would claim executive privilege over the material, he testified, and then sought out the DoJ’s opinion if this represented a serious enough issue to take to Congress, even though it was technically outside his portfolio.

    Adam Schiff blasted Maguire for not comprehending “the politics of the moment,” as the Washington Post’s Amber Philips put it. However, Schiff had to stretch to make this point:
    .
    The problem with how Maguire handled this, Democrats argue, is that he failed to take into context the politics of the moment. This isn’t a typical whistleblower complaint; those normally deal with bad-acting middle managers. It’s a complaint against the president of the United States.

    “Do you think it’s appropriate that you go to a department run by someone who’s the subject of the complaint to get advice — or who is a subject of the complaint or implicated in the complaint for advice as to whether you should provide that to Congress? Did — did that conflict of interest concern you?” asked House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.).

    The DoJ is not being run by the person who was “the subject of the complaint,” nor was the DoJ involved in the complaint at all. Maguire took reasonable steps to make the determination using a legitimate process with a non-conflicted entity. Schiff purposely conflated Donald Trump with William Barr to score this bogus point, even though Barr is only mentioned in the complaint as being mentioned by Trump in the call with Zelensky. The complaint itself alleges no untoward actions by Barr or anyone in the DoJ, nor is there any indication in the Zelensky transcript of any misconduct by Barr. Trump wanted to send Barr to look into the Russiagate allegations, but (a) that would certainly fall within Barr’s purview as AG, and (b) Barr had no role in the conversation or the subsequent handling of it.

    It’s a conflation with a purpose, both on Schiff’s part and on Pelosi’s. They want to force Barr into recusing himself from anything relating to this new impeachment effort, while painting everyone around Trump as corrupt and participating in a cover-up — or “the cover-up of the cover-up,” as Pelosi put it.

    Here’s the main problem with all of this: how can we know there was a cover-up when no one has corroborated any of the complaint yet? None of the material in the complaint is first-hand testimony; it’s all hearsay. One has to establish whether the second- or third-hand testimony matches up to facts and first-hand testimony before knowing whether a cover-up took place at all. There are already some details in the complaint which appear to be inaccurate, including the supposedly explicit quid pro quos and the number of times Trump supposedly badgered Zelensky. One of the supposed participants, a State Department official named T. Ulrich Brechbuhl, turned out not to have been part of the conversation at all. That’s not exactly a confidence-builder.

    It would be a lot easier to take this more seriously if Pelosi and her team didn’t set their hair on fire at every turn. Adam Schiff has tried that for more than two years, and apparently Pelosi didn’t notice that it wasn’t working. How about we find out whether the complaint was accurate first before shrieking about Barr having “gone rogue”?

    Quite simply they want the attorney general to stop investigating the Russian hoax.

    The marxists are simply trying to obstruct Barrs investigation with more lies and deceit. Obama placed moles in the FBI, and CIA that will be there a long time unless they are removed. Obama and the DNC spent 8 years subverting this countries laws and constitution to empower the marxist left. Don't forget that Obama was a marxist sympathizer! Obama was good friends with Bill Ayers, the cofounder of the of the communist revolutionary group Weather Underground. Ayers was just one of several commie influences Obama admired.

    It's been said that the whistle blower went to Adam Schiffhead first, and Schiffhead set it all up.

    The "whistle blower" isn't actually a whistle blower...no first hand knowledge of the event.

    It sure does smell like another Democrat scheme to 'Get Trump!'.

    What is amusing about this...

    GA talks to his customers about politics...
    Most of them have figured out the DIMS are crying wolf...
    When there is literally NO wildlife around!

    Wonder what would happen if any real evidence came along???

    Remember the story about the boy that kept calling wolf...
    For you youngin's that did not get proper up-bringing (taught these things by YOUR parents):
    The young lad kept calling wolf... then laughing when the men came to protect him.
    So the day when there really WAS a wolf... nobody came...
    And the young lad became lunch... literally.

    There is a moral to this story...
    However GA suspects the left will not get it...
    Not because they are too dumb...
    Rather because it does not fit their agenda.

    Another thought regarding this 'whistle blower'. Using the 'whistle blower' as cover, the 'WB' can remain anonymous.

    Here's a few more interesting links:

    Adam Schiff Received the Whistleblower Complaint a Month Ago and Didn't Report It Until Now, Why?

    And a video of Schiff giving a false account of the phone call.

    From the video blurb:
    Adam Schiff didn't find the recently released transcript of the phone call between Trump and Zelensky salacious enough. So Schiff provides a rendition of what he wished the phone call contained. It's really scary, later he is called out about this and he refers to it as a parody.

    From what I understand, it's not just hearsay, it's hearsay of hearsay.

    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    Is there evidence that anyone in the House actually received the complaint or did the the whistle blower come to them for advice?

    It would seem prudent to seek advice (and protection) given the lawlessness and false claims coming from Don the Con.
    It ain't what you don't know that gets you in trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

    So far, the only verifiable false claims have come from Schiff. Which false claims of Our Great President are you referring to?

    Does the Don have any evidence that anyone in Congress helped write the complaint or is he just speculating?

    I also find it strange that a stable genius such as Trump does not understand the statutes regarding whistle blower protections.

    You have to admit, the "whistel blower/Schiff relationship is sounding a lot like the Dianne Fienstien/Christine Blasey Ford relationship...

    What is truly strange is that no one who's a Democrat seems to find it odd that the "whistle blower" went to Schiff first. You see, the "whistle Blower" wasn't a "whistle blower" then. The likely scenario is that Schiff recognized the value of launching yet another Dem Impeachment/nullification effort against Trump using the "whistle blower" statute as cover, since the "whistle blower" could then be yet one more anonymous source, exempt from questioning.
