Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
John Durham’s investigation must be hovering right over the target. – This is turning into the Tet Offensive of all Deep State smears. They’re even bringing federal judges publicly into it.
Yesterday, The Federal Judges Association announced it would be holding an “emergency meeting” today to discuss, among other things, Barr’s decision to reduce the DOJ’s sentencing recommendation in the Roger Stone case. This intervention, which was nothing out of ordinary and well within the rights of any attorney general to execute, has been seized upon by the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of Disinformation as the centerpiece of its effort to take down Barr as investigator John Durham’s investigation of the Deep State proceeds to conclusion.
Remember how transparent this all is: It is so transparent that I told you way back last summer that this is exactly what would be taking place in our country right now. Now, think about this: If I knew it would be taking place, don’t you think AG Barr was aware of it as well?
Understanding that reality means that you immediately understood that last night’s story pushed fby Deep State tool Matt Zapatosky at the Washington Post, that Barr was “considering quitting” his job because mean ol’ President Trump won’t stop tweeting in his general direction, was laughably false. That understanding was confirmed when, about an hour after the story broke, Barr’s spokesperson issued a simple statement that said “Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.”
So, what really happened? The most likely scenario is that Barr had set up a trap to identify a leaker or two on his staff. What better way to catch a leaker than to casually feed that person or persons a juicy tidbit like that and then sit back and see how long it takes either the Post or the New York Times to suddenly have a “scoop”?
Or maybe Barr just decided to have a little fun yesterday. You can almost imagine this happening:
William Barr: Hey, guys, let’s have some fun. Leak out to the Washington Post that I’m quitting because of Trump’s tweets.
Media: Barr’s Quitting! He’s great, standing up to Trump’s mean tweets!
[1 hour later] Barr: I’m not quitting.
Media: Aw, man….
Back to this meeting of the Federal Judges Association: The group’s spokesman issued a ringing endorsement of corrupt judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over the case against Stone, saying that “We are supportive of any federal judge who does what is required.”
Ummmmm…what exactly is “required” of a deep state federal judge? Ms. Jackson presided over a case in which she and everyone else knew the jury foreman was a rabid Trump hater, and who lied on the questionnaire she had to fill out in order to serve on that jury. Despite that reality becoming public in recent days, Judge Jackson yesterday ordered the trial to just move ahead to the sentencing phase as if none of that had happened.
This is also the very same judge who issued a 100% public speaking gag order against Stone, preventing him from making a living of any kind for more than a year as this abusive prosecution has dragged on and on. She is also the very same judge who tossed septuagenarian Paul Manafort into solitary confinement during his trial, a draconian punishment courts do not deploy against rapists and murderers.
Is that doing “what is required?”
The fact that the federal judiciary – most of whose members were appointed by Clinton, Bush and Obama – has now become so utterly politicized that it would publicly stage such a bit of Kabuki theater is one of the most disturbing developments of the last four years. This meeting today is nothing more or less than a rank act of judicial intimidation designed to send a signal to Barr and Durham, warning them not to expect impartial treatment in any cases they bring against the bad actors from the Obama era.
This is real, true banana republic stuff happening right in front of our very eyes. These people are purely transparent once you accept them for what they really are.
None of it would be happening if Barr and Durham weren’t getting really close.
That is all.
