Conservatives rip into AG Barr for covering up for Trump’s lies and obstruction

Published

on

Card-carrying conservatives lamented Thursday in the wake of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

“Look, I’m a tea party conservative, but what Bill Barr did today should anger every American, no matter your personal politics,” former GOP congressman Joe Walsh tweeted.

“The top law enforcement officer in America just became a shill for the President,” Walsh added. “That’s just plain wrong. No matter your politics, that’s just wrong.”

The editorial board of the conservative-leaning Washington Examiner noted following the release of the report that in spite of Mueller’s decision not to prosecute Donald Trump for collusion, the president “spent two years acting like a guilty man.”

“The report exposes in him some of the same flaws Hillary Clinton shared, which we feared would compromise her presidency if she were elected: a reflexive aversion to transparency rooted in either guilt or paranoia,” the editors wrote.

Tim Miller, a never-Trump Republican that formerly worked for Jeb Bush’s campaign and now writes for the conservative Bulwark website, mused that “pro-Trumpers are going to go with the ‘he lied, he cheated, he tried to steal but at least he didn’t do what the craziest panelists on MSNBC suggested he did’ defense.”

“4 more years!” he jokingly added.

Trump’s racist attacks on Dem lawmakers are a test run in case he faces Kamala Harris in 2020: MSNBC contributor

Published

Speaking with host Alex Witt on Sunday afternoon, an MSNBC contributor speculated that Donald Trump's racist attack on four female Democrats -- none of whom are white -- was a test run to see how far he can go attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) should she be his opponent in the 2020 general election.

According to Democratic strategist Don Calloway, Trump may not have a grand strategy, but he's in "campaign mode" which brings out his barely concealed inner-racist.

"I'm not one to ascribe a strategy to the president when it's clear he's not a deep thinker, but he is, however, in campaign mode," he explained. "I see this as a good campaign device for him to gin up his base, fueled by the xenophobia and race-based hatred."

Here’s how lawyers enabling Trump’s obstruction can have their livelihoods stripped from them — by anyone

Published

on

In a column for the Daily Beast, a former Democratic member of the U.S. House of Representatives laid out a simple way to force lawyers advising aides to Donald Trump to defy Congressional subpoenas -- or avoiding one themselves -- to stop giving bad advice by moving to have them disbarred.

According to Brad Miller, who represented North Carolina in Congress between 2003 and 2013, the way in which former President Bill Clinton's impeachment was handled -- and the penalty he eventually received -- is a road map for legal retaliation even if Democrats in Congress won't do it.
