Is Bill Barr working with US Attorney investigating Mueller report to legitimize conspiracy theories?

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham was tasked by Attorney General Bill Barr to “investigate the investigators” involved in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. But Barr flew Durham along with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and right-wing activist Sebastian Gorka to Italy to uncover evidence to justify their theory that multiple countries worked to set up President Donald Trump for collusion with Russia.

As The Washington Post reported, a European professor met with a top Trump advisor during the 2016 campaign and Barr wanted to get to the bottom of the professor’s impact on the Mueller investigation. The investigation into Mueller’s investigation was supposed to be run by independent U.S. Attorney Durham. But it seems Barr has taken hold of the investigation using the resources of the Department of Justice.

“It just seems like they’re doing everything they can to delegitimize the origins of that investigation,” one source involved in Muller’s investigation told The Post. “I just don’t think there’s any real basis to disparage it.”

Barr has been one of Trump’s greatest allies, as he released an inaccurate summary of the Mueller report and lied about the findings. Nevertheless, he managed to change the political narrative to cause public confusion about the truth in Mueller’s findings.

While his supporters say Barr is exploring the conspiracy theories to determine if they are legitimate, the investigation into Muller’s probe is itself an investigation into a conspiracy theory.

“He’s not a conspiracy theorist. He’s a realist,” said Barr friend George Terwilliger. “And I’m confident that if he has a concern that justifies his personal involvement, it’s based on fact, not conjecture.”

House Republicans have 3 key defenses of Trump’s Ukraine extortion campaign — and they’re all terrible

Published

on

To any halfway objective observer, the first day of public hearings in House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, which are ongoing as of this writing, have not gone well for Trump’s defenders.

Bill Taylor, the top US ambassador in Kyiv, and veteran State Department official George Kent came off as principled and non-partisan as they delivered damning testimony about the Trump regime’s multifaceted campaign to coerce the Ukrainian government to announce an investigation into fringe right-wing conspiracy theories designed to deflect blame for interfering in the 2016 election from Russia and onto Ukraine.

Progressives hilariously ridicule Donald Trump Jr.’s new book with their own Trump triggers #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr

Published

on

President Donald Trump's eldest child and namesake has published a book about liberals he says are "triggered" by conservatives. Ironically, it seems Donald Trump Jr. is the one who seems to be triggered by the reception he's getting from some on his book tour.

The hashtag, #TriggerDonaldTrumpJr has nothing to do with Jr's new book, rather it's progressives using his book title to mock the Trump child. Internet users were torn between mocking the young Trump for desperately trying to get his father's attention, scrambling to seem relevant, trying to launch his own political career, trying to make his own money and so much more.

Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, Rep. Devin Nunes of California and other House Republicans were clearly trying to rally the Trumpian base on Wednesday, when the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump offered its first public testimony. Jordan and Nunes aggressively tried to discredit the inquiry and the two witnesses who testified: diplomat William B. Taylor (U.S. ambassador to Ukraine) and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George P. Kent. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Jennifer Rubin, in a Wednesday column, stressed that House Republicans — for all their “antics and conspiracy theories” — failed to show why Trump shouldn’t be impeached, while House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff and other House Democrats showed why he should.
