Going into 2020, Democrats are willing to lie about anything to get their way.
As long as they can harm Trump, the truth doesn’t matter in the slightest.
And William Barr just crushed a top Democrat with one fact they never wanted to hear.
At the most recent Democrat debate, the candidates used their time on stage to prove who can be the most extreme.
At one point, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke even went so far as to scream at the audience that he will confiscate firearms if he gets into office.
But even without moments that extreme, Democrats quickly made it clear they aren’t afraid of outright lying.
In her opening statement, Sen. Kamala Harris said she was speaking directly to Trump, where she goes on to paint him as a bigot, and a criminal who only got off because of a corrupt Department of Justice.
“President Trump, you’ve spent the last two and a half years full-time trying to sow hate and division among us,” Harris said. “You have used hate, intimidation, fear, and over 12,000 lies as a way to distract from your failed policies and your broken promises.”
But Harris wasn’t going to stop there, and instead went on to claim that Trump isn’t just a hateful person, but a criminal who should be behind bars.
“The only reason you’ve not been indicted is because there was a memo in the Department of Justice that says a sitting president cannot be charged with a crime,” she added.
Of course, her first claim is opinion.
But the fact that minority unemployment is lower than it ever has been, and historic criminal justice reform, which largely helps those in African American communities, has been passed makes her claim ridiculous.
While the first claim may be opinion, the second claim is outright wrong.
Harris claims that Trump would have been charged with a crime if he was not President.
She bases that idea on an Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) opinion that states that a sitting President cannot be indicted for a criminal offense.
While that opinion is real, it is not set in stone, and not everybody follows it anyway.
And, according to Attorney General William Barr, Robert Mueller himself doesn’t adhere to that opinion.
Barr spoke on the opinion, stating that he specifically asked Mueller about it, only for him to state that he does not share it.
“We specifically asked him about the OLC opinion and whether or not he was taking a position that he would have found a crime but for the existence of the OLC opinion. And he made it very clear several times that was not his position,” Barr said.
With that being the case, it is clear that Mueller had nothing to indict Trump over.
There was nothing holding him back if there was something to charge Trump with.
But Democrats will never admit that and will simply lie to make it seem as though Mueller’s investigation actually uncovered something, when it didn’t.
