When asked about Barr's motivation for some of his BS, he said: "I have no idea."
Barr feels both obligated and entitled to lie.
He is no different than every high level other Justice Dept or intelligence agency employee with a top security clearance.
He has been granted access to the most top secret materials in existence, he has seen all the same reports, been briefed by all the same people.
It's an incredible coincidence when, out of THOUSANDS of top level personnel, this one person not only pretends he has not had access to the materials, but continues to promote the very things which those top secret briefings debunked...thoroughly and indisputably.
Since our fearless leader already unzipped Lavrov's fly in full view of everyone except the US press for the second time, and downloaded the latest set of Putin-approved military intel talking points from Lavrov's Kremlin-approved download appendage, one can only conclude that Barr then parked his oral orifice in close proximity to our fearless leader's download appendage, and received his orders.
Barr is also fully expecting a two-fer because much of this is a derivation from the Iran-Contra playbook.
That can explain the balls and chutzpah of this guy.
I don't think he really cares that everyone knows it's B.S.
Far as he's concerned, you'll take it, swallow it and call it ice cream or forever be a marked man in TrumpCo.
And marked men don't last long in TrumpCo.
Organized crime tactics 100%
The entire "deep state conspiracy theory", the latest in a long string of them, now lies as a ruin, a smoking heap of debris and ash. There is no deep state and there never was. The so called "Deep State" is just career professionals who have been steeped in professional values for ten, twenty and thirty years, and they do not have to pore feverishly over the Constitution or their own job description manuals for obscure minutae that might pave the way for remedial action, because they've been doing their job for so long that it's instinctive for them, they know this stuff at the blood and bone level, and in their hearts.
Almost all good career military, career juris doctors, career law enforcement, career intelligence professionals have now been attacked and slandered by this administration.
And the timing of the attacks, the immediacy, suggests that all of this from Barr is from a canned script, a refined model that has already been tested in other countries with at least some modicum of success.
When you decide to go rogue and commit treason against your own country, best to study the intel models of the country you're doing the Benedict Arnold
for.Yeah, that's right, we're not actually newbies at this, kids.
We have rooted out this sort of thing many times in the past.
The entire impeachment push, portrayed by Barr and TrumpCo as a whole as a tantrum over a lost Hillary coronation, actually hinges around the fact that the high crimes and misdemeanors being committed by Trump and TrumpCo constitute a direct attack on the ability of the American people to even hold a free and fair election at all.
The cornerstone of our representative democracy. If that fails, all of democracy fails, for we do not have an Athenian underpinning, because we're a republic.
We have elections and we have a vote.
Ukraine, Spain, India, Greece, the UK and even France have all reported Russian attempts of this nature,
twenty-seven countries in all, most of them some form of Western style democracy and relatively liberal.
And that is a 2017 report, which means that at that time, Ukraine was just starting to get visits from Putin's "Little Green Men", on top of their intense election sabotage efforts.
I guess close proximity and direct casualties makes it a little tougher to deny.
And Comey's being disingenuous when he says he has no idea.
Maybe none dare speak its name.
