Lev Parnas ran to Maddow over fear Justice Department officials would bury Bill Barr allegations: ex-prosecutor

Published

on

Appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” a former prosecutor speculated that indicted Lev Parnas — who has leveled a stunning amount of accusations against President Donald Trump and senior administration officials — likely agreed to speak candidly with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow because he fears for his life and felt Attorney General Bill Barr couldn’t be trusted.

Addressing the interview that drew record viewership for Maddow’s evening show, former prosecutor and current MSNBC legal analyst Glenn Kirschner said Parnas likely had good reason to worry about how his own case is going.

“I’m quite sure SDNY prosecutors have sat down and gotten all this information. some of the information we now know they must have gotten was what Lev Parnas told Rachel,” Kirschner explained. “Bill Barr is in on the dirty Ukranian deal.”

“Now, if they sign him up as a cooperating witness and they use that evidence, who do they end up bringing down? Bill Barr. Who’s overseeing the Lev Parnas prosecution? Bill Barr who oversees everything that goes on in the southern district of New York U.S Attorney’s office and the 93 other U.S Attorney’s in the country,” he continued before suggesting, “Bill Barr needs to have his DOJ hall pass revoked because of this dramatic conflict.

Later in the segment he returned to the Maddow interview.

“Here is the Catch 22 for Parnas,” he elaborated. “If he is actively involved with discussions with the prosecutors in New York to see whether he wants to come on board as a cooperator, those will remain secret so he wouldn’t be able to tell his story publicly.”

“That must be part of the motivation for getting his story out because, think about it, if he had been dealing with the Southern District of New York prosecutors behind closed doors, giving up Bill Barr, Trump and others and all of a sudden something happened to him like happened to [Jeffrey] Epstein, well, all of that information would then be put under wraps by Bill Barr the same way we really haven’t gotten to the bottom of what happened to Epstein,” he suggested. “And so I think this was a smart move and maybe for his own personal safety — this was Lev Parnas’ only play to get the information out to the American people so he doesn’t get Epstein-ed.”

Trump directing his coronavirus task force to launch attacks on Democrats to avoid blame: report

Published

on

According to a report from the Daily Beast, Donald Trump is directing members of his coronavirus task force to make sure they hammer at the Democrats when discussing progress the administration is making to combat the spread on the growing pandemic.

On Friday night, at a rally in South Carolina, Trump set the tone by pointedly blaming the Democrats and telling rallygoers, "The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. They're politicizing it. They don't have any clue," while also tying the growing health crisis to building his wall, by stating, "Border security is also health security.”

Jared Kushner vows there will be ‘no drama’ in Trump’s second term: ‘It’s high-competence’

Published

Jared Kushner vowed on Friday that a second term from his father-in-law, President Donald Trump,  would be both efficient and drama-free.

The senior White House adviser claimed that Trump's re-election campaign was running smoothly, much as the president's second term supposedly would, while speaking with organizer Matt Schlapp at the Conservative Political Actions Conference (CPAC).

"The way that you see the campaign being run, there's no leaks. There's no drama. I would say it's high-competence, low-drama," Kushner said. "Everything is very efficiently run, and I think that's exemplary of how President Trump would run his second term in office."

William Barr promotes Christian tyranny in latest speech

Published

on

I’ve said it before, and if you’re reading this, you’ve very likely heard the same thing darkly muttered among liberals and progressives if you haven’t said it yourself: I never thought anything could possibly make me miss Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III. And yet, with his willingness to throw away our norms, checks, and balances, to politicize the Justice Department, to sacrifice the rule of law itself on the altar of Trump—current Attorney General William Barr has done it. As authoritarian as he was, invoking Romans 13 to defend the Trump administration’s indefensibly inhumane policy of caging children separated from their asylum-seeking parents, Sessions had at least enough genuine concern for the rule of law to recuse himself from the Mueller investigation, against the tweeter-in-chief’s explicit wishes.
