William Barr has gotten under the skin of the Democrats.
The Attorney General is leading an investigation that could be incredibly damaging for their party.
Now Democrats afraid of Barr are fighting back with one dirty tactic.
The left-wing activist group Protect Democracy launched a petition that was signed by over 2,000 former Department of Justice employees who believe William Barr should resign from office.
The Democrat Media Complex was enthusiastic about promoting this meaningless petition.
They didn’t bother to ask who signed the petition and why.
For example, some of the people who signed the petition are deep state actors who’ve landed plum jobs at MSNBC.
Another one of the signees, David Laufman, who worked in the counterintelligence department of the DOJ, was named in the FISA abuse report.
Needless to say, the 2,000 people who signed the petition are all partisan politicians who want to see Barr go down.
And the main reason they want Barr out is because he could be dropping the hammer very soon.
Barr and DOJ investigator John Durham have been looking into the origins of the bogus Russian collusion hoax, and it won’t be pretty for Democrats and many deep state actors.
DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released his report that detailed deeply troubling FISA abuse by the FBI.
Lawyers knew the infamous Steele dossier, opposition research bought by Hillary Clinton was bunk, but used it anyway to maintain surveillance on Trump campaign officials.
Horowitz doesn’t have subpoena power and doesn’t speculate on motives or intentions.
But Horowitz’s report could just be the tip of the iceberg.
James Clapper (Director of National Intelligence during the Obama administration), John Brennan (former head of the CIA), and other deep state officials have already lawyered up in response to Durham’s investigation widening in scope.
Clapper lied about the NSA spying on American citizens, and Brennan lied about the CIA spying on members of the U.S. Senate.
These and other deep state hacks are being employed by MSNBC and CNN and given platforms to spew their nonsense about the Trump administration.
These are the people that are fighting so hard to see Barr taken down, because they know what could be coming down the pike.
Even if they’re unsuccessful in taking out Barr, they’re hoping to weaken him in terms of public opinion so his damning report won’t have as much sting.
The Democrat Media Complex can try to write it off as an “illegitimate” attorney general going after Trump’s enemies.
But that strategy isn’t going to work when Barr and Durham have evidence like the bad FISA court applications.
The deep state orchestrated a coup against the President of the United States, and that truth will eventually come out.
Signed petitions by self-interested opponents of Barr aren’t going to move the needle with anyone.
Barr has had a sterling record for decades.
These 11th-hour smears by Democrats aren’t fooling the American people.
