AG Barr Makes Most Pointed Statements yet About Spygate “Travesty”

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

The corrupt media misses the real news, as usual. – In a wide-ranging interview with Laura Ingraham to be aired on Fox News Thursday night, Attorney General William Barr slams the corrupt news media for “waging a jihad” against hydroxychloroquine simply because President Donald Trump has spoken positively about it. This is the focus of headlines about the interview by media outlets both leftist and conservative this morning.

Here is an excerpt in a Washington Times piece about Barr’s HCQ-related comments:

Attorney General William P. Barr Wednesday accused the media of attacking hydroxycholoroquine solely because President Trump has suggested it could treat the coronavirus.

“Before the president said anything about it, there was fair and balanced coverage of this very promising drug and the fact that it had such a long track record, and soon as [President Trump] said something positive about it the media has been on a jihad to discredit this drug,” Mr. Barr said in an interview with Fox News’ Laura Ingharam. “It’s quite strange.”

Mr. Trump has been urging federal health officials to make hydroxycholorquine more widely available as the coronavirus spreads, but others insist there is little evidence the drug will be effective.

[End]

The WashTimes also includes this bit of truth from Barr about the corrupt media:

“I think the president went out at the beginning of this thing and was statesman-like — trying to bring people together, trying to work with all the governors, keeping his patience as he got these snarky gotcha questions from the White House media pool — and the stridency of the partisan attacks on him has gotten higher and higher and it’s disappointing to see,” he said. “The stridency of the partisan attacks and the politicization of hydroxychloroquine has been amazing to me,” he said.

[End]

Barr also made the following accurate remarks as captured in a piece by SF Gate:

“I am concerned that we not get into the business of declaring everything an emergency and then using these kinds of sweeping, extraordinary steps,” Barr said. “But given where we were back in March, I think the president made the right decision.”

Barr noted the economics of the shutdown could cost lives. For example, he said, cancer researchers were likely at home now, not doing their critical work.

“We will have a weaker health care system if we go into a deep depression,” Barr said. “So just measured in lives, the cure cannot be worse than the disease.”

[End]

These are all very good, cutting remarks that make for nice headlines that attract clicks to media web pages. But they are also not the real news in this interview, news that is not included even in the report on the interview at Fox New’s own website.

To get that, you have to go view a Twitter thread by Washington Post reporter Matt Zapotosky. Towards the end of that thread, Zapotosky quotes Barr as follows:

Why is this news? Because in the past, AG Barr has always used speculative language regarding the origins of the Spygate operation run during 2016/17 by the deep state cabal within the DOJ and the FBI. He has always used qualifiers like “I suspect” or “we need to find out” when referring to his and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into what was an outright coup d’etat effort on American soil.

To now directly call Spygate “one of the greatest travesties in American history” and to overtly state that the spying operation James Comey called “Crossfire Hurricane” was started “without any basis” and “meant to sabotage the presidency” is new, much more assertive language used by a man who is always very careful in the language he employs publicly. This is, in other words, a dramatic change in messaging.

Now, anyone can read this any way they prefer, but I read this as Mr. Barr sending a message that the Durham investigation has uncovered proof of the cabal’s seditious operations that he is willing to bring to court. He would not be making such unqualified statements of what can only be classified as treasonous actions if that were not the case.

Stay tuned.

That is all.

    Having read that the President is going to put 7 IGs on the unemployment rolls (or at least remove them from their positions) and knowing that the President doesn’t fire people without a paper trail or other evidence showing either incompetence (or criminality or subversion,) Add this to Attorney General Barr’s more pointed language, and it looks like we might see changes on a massive scale.

    What will happen? What will this result in? It’ll likely make the press stop obsessing about the CCP Virus, and allow for the economy to be put back on the tracks while Bugeyes and Fossy Jaw angrily focus their ire on the firings and demotions. If they all continue their focus on the virus, then these changes will not be noticed by anybody but people like us, and those who are on the firing line; if they focus on the firings, real progress can be made in getting things in order.

      Result: people get better, economy comes roaring back, enemies of Freedom discredited.

      While I’ve looked at this as a mandated vacation, first paid vacation in over 30 years, I’m really ready to get back to work. Barr’s newfound voice seems like a bell ringing, letting us know that the battle is about to get real.

    2. phineas gage - April 9, 2020

      The media will instead obsess all the more about the virus in an ongoing effort to damage and destroy Trump before the cabal and the media participation can be exposed.

  2. Excellent article – spot on.

    Speaking of Barr, did anyone see this the other day?

    I certainly hope some one is held accountable for what the fake news and the dem/communist swamp snakes did to our President and Mr. Trump IS our President.The FBI is corrupt no doubt about it just how many is the question I wonder how the honest FBI agents can look at them selves in the morning and still go to work if they are totally honest with themselves.In my mind they should resign every one of them and demand the head snakes be put on trial.I sometimes wonder about Barr is he a straight shooter or just one of the swamp rats covering for the crooks I hope not but makes one wonder.As for the fake news and that is what they are making news up even or slanting it to make President Trump look bad if at all possible when are they going to get theirs?I do not watch tv news anymore I have quit fox they are no better than the rest they have sold out and radio news is just as bad that is what the mute button is for and I use it every time the news comes on .The only way we can get the truth is by listening to Rush.Go Trump Go

      I’m with you Ben… Barr has a swamp history too.

      Hes been the helms head for near two tears now and whats come of the investigation??? Meuller charade was a year and half and spend 30 million or so… How much has Barr spent??

      Barr was handed multiple criminal referrals what did he do with them?? Waved his hands and said nope, won’t bother to prosecute on some and silenced on others… ie buried.

      Then the obligatory nodding heads keep whispering that the hammer will drop sometime before winter break… expected to drop in spring… expected to drop in mid summer… expected…. and so everyone is duped into waiting for the hammer to drop.

      IMO… He should have started with low level fruits and move up the chain. Absolutely throw EVERYTHING at the lower levels he can go for like they did with Manafort and Flynn for example. Its in these traitors character to turn on each other in a heartbeat.

      Then again maybe I have to much of a texas canajun redneck in me. When I see Barr… I see all hat and no cattle. As Mr Blackmon sees hope in these statements I see more smoke choosing to fuel the rumor mill, keeping it going. I have to ask as well why has Durham not been interviewed once by any talking heads??? That puzzles me… all thats ever shown is the same picture of him repeatedly…

  5. Jonesy - April 9, 2020

    I won’t hold my breath. I have the same hopes as everyone else, but I am done getting invested in tidbits and clues as to what’s going on with the investigation. Too many false starts and let-downs so far. I’ll wait for the (maybe big) reveal later this year. Too many other things to focus on until that time comes.

    Dear Mr. Barr:

    When are YOU and Durham going to do your No. 1 job…and put on trial everyone who illegally spied on Trump during and after the Obama administration?

    When?

    1. W. Flyer - April 9, 2020

      My sympathies (sort of) to the first one actually convicted of illegal spying or related crime. Years of anger and frustration will add to his jail sentence.

  7. Jay Whitcraft - April 9, 2020

    I am as disappointed as the next person about heads not rolling, starting with HRC! But I do see a long term pattern here. Let me give an example: Trump was told over and over to fire Muller, but didn’t do it. Why? At the time I often wondered that, but after a while, I figured out that Trump had information/reasons that I didn’t know about. I’m beginning to think the same thing about this. Does anyone here actually believe that Trump and Barr DON’T talk about the Durham probe? It’s really, really hard to wait for something to happen, but so far trusting Trump has worked pretty good. Jay

    1. Jimmy MacAfee - April 10, 2020

      I agree. Trump and Barr seem to have a connection these days that I haven’t seen before. Visible in some of the pressers.

  8. Gregg - April 9, 2020

    I’ll believe it when I see it. While Barr’s new-found pointed language might mean something is percolating, I won’t really believe it until I see it. Talk is cheap; actions and results are what matters.

    For example, what would have been lost by indicting the people referred by the various IG reports over the past year or so? Why aren’t/weren’t the ‘alleged criminals’ put on the defensive and not allowed to make money on book deals and appear on DNCNN and MSDNC? Why weren’t they forced into bankruptcy a la Flynn, who is still being tortured by the thugs who run DOJ and the judge(s)?

    The Federal government reportedly ‘wins’ (gets convictions) in well over 90% of its cases, so why not prosecute? Even if they lost to a prejudiced jury trial in the District of Corruption, the SC ruled last year that retrying the same case in a different court (state vs a federal court) does not represent Double Jeopardy (Durham is based in Connecticut).

    I saw that ‘ruling’ as an end around or back-door way for the anti-Trump (and Trump’s associates) persecutors to continue to harass and charge anyone in his administration in a friendly New York State Court to force the release of his personal taxes, recharge on the emoluments clause etc.

    I hope Dave’s take on this amounts to justice really prevailing, but I’ll optimistically wait to see real results.

      The way that you will know is by watching the behavior of Comey, Brennan, and other likely targets.

      It is quite likely that several key players have been singing like a bird to Durham.

      1. Gregg - April 9, 2020

        Excellent point!

  9. brian - April 9, 2020

    I’d like to believe that there is a plan to prosecute these traitorous players but after nearly TWO years of ‘investigations’…. with the only action is whispers of “just wait its coming.”

    Barr is a carnelian, a slow walk’n deep stater thats not going to upset the apple cart in any measurable way. The President is doing a great job but his picks in the AG dept haven’t been the greatest. Sessions was doing a good job going after pedo’s but the spygate thing… crash’n burned, a magoo. Barr is slick and measured… Its as good a reason to suspect he’s not working FOR the President as he is against. No way of knowing at this point and all people have to go on after nearly two years is… its a travesty…. wut???

  10. D3F1ANT - April 10, 2020

    Lost faith in Barr. He sometimes knows what to say but his favorite activity is not pursuing corruption and his favorite term is “decline to prosecute.” How are the Russiagate indictments coming along, Bill?
