‘Impeachable offense’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe drops the hammer on Bill Barr’s interference in Roger Stone case

Published

on

Taking up the case of continuing criticism of Attorney General Bill Barr, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough claimed Donald Trump’s handpicked chief law enforcement officer is committing an “impeachable offense” by inserting himself into the sentencing phase of Roger Stone.

Noting that the independent Federal Judges Association will hold an emergency meeting on Tuesday to discuss Barr’s intervention into politically sensitive cases to help President Donald Trump, Scarborough lit into the AG.

“You look at Bill Barr and what he’s done and you look at the fact that he has started a search and destroy mission against all of the president’s perceived political opponents that the president concocted when he talked about Barack Obama tapping the phones at Trump Tower back in March of 2017 and he is chasing down every conspiracy theory that the president is putting forward,” Scarborough explained. “At the same time, and more disturbingly, Bill Barr is providing aid and comfort to the president’s allies.”

“Roger Stone, one of the president’s longest political allies, the two have been politically inseparable through the decades,” he continued. “So for the attorney general to intervene in sentencing when we’re talking about one of the president’s closest political allies, it’s just beyond the pale. It is an impeachable offense, but, of course, lying to Congress is also impeachable offense and Bill Barr did that a very long time ago.”

It's not clear where President Donald Trump's eldest daughter will live, along with her husband and fellow White House adviser Jared Kushner, but their former friends, colleagues and associates believe Ivanka Trump will try to build up her influence in the Republican Party, reported the Washington Post.

“I think she’d want to be the [first] female president,” said Marissa Velez Kraxberger, a film producer who worked for Ivanka for two years at her now-defunct company. “I don’t think she’s actually ever had any interest in fashion but everything was an angle to gain more power in whatever possible way.”

GOP senator knows Trump lost but thinks it would be ‘political suicide’ to admit it: report

Published

on

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is still spouting conspiracy theories about the election being "stolen" from President Donald Trump -- but according to one former Wisconsin Republican official, Johnson understands that Trump lost.

Mark Becker, the former Chairman of the Brown County Republican Party, writes at The Bulwark that he had a conversation with Johnson after the election in which the senator acknowledged Trump's defeat.

However, Johnson said that he was loath to admit it publicly because of the strong support the president had received from Wisconsin GOP voters, despite the fact that the president narrowly lost the state this year.

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough mocked Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for demanding proof of something that doesn't exist.

Attorney General William Barr announced the Department of Justice had found no evidence of voter fraud, as President Donald Trump has claimed, and Johnson called on Barr to "show everybody" the proof that the election had not been stolen.

"The man Guinness Book of World Records has called the dumbest senator to ever be sworn in in this constitutional republic," Scarborough said. "I'm speaking, of course, of Ron Johnson, who said that William Barr must show his evidence that he has no evidence."
