Do you trust Barr?

Recommended Posts

No. Specifically because he dodged direct questions in his confirmation hearing.

I don't have enough knowledge of him to form an informed opinion, so I will do some homework before taking a stand.

I doubt Barr can keep it quiet.  And I think Mueller has considered that.

Indictments that drop on say, suspect x, can't be stopped by Barr, right?

So each new indictment will cause questions to be asked, and reveal a little bit more.

 

I somehow think we'll learn a lot next Wed, when Cohen testifies.  I think that will let the cat(s) out of the bag, and

start the ball rolling.

Word among lawyers is he used to be a lawyer’s lawyer when he was in government service, and then he got a corporate job where he started drinking the conservative kool aid ( granted for a shitload of dough- he was working for money!), so views are spread between, on one extreme,

continued kool aid guzzling professing  Trump personal fealty

 to, on the other extreme,

altho J28 seems to believe he’s the best lawyer Trymp can buy, I don’t believe anyone can be comfortable with him, since he has deployed Trump’s rhetorical methods in extremis.

The "I know am I'm happy being that way" defense rarely looks good.  I'm sure mueller has already been called far worse, but he seems to keep his mouth shut and do his job.  I respect that.

Pierre Trudeau once famously said "I've been called worse by better men" after Nixon called him "That asshole".

I suspect Mueller will be in a similar position.

No, for reasons covered elsewhere.

Senator Paul is a "no" on AG nominee William Barr

"I'm a no," Paul told Politico yesterday. "He's been the chief advocate for warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens. I think that the Fourth Amendment should protect your phone calls and your bank information. People shouldn't be allowed to look at it without a warrant."

"I'm a no," Paul told Politico yesterday. "He's been the chief advocate for warrantless surveillance of U.S. citizens. I think that the Fourth Amendment should protect your phone calls and your bank information. People shouldn't be allowed to look at it without a warrant."

It's valid criticism. As the American Civil Liberties Union noted last month, Barr helped oversee a secret phone surveillance program when he led the Justice Department during the George H.W. Bush administration. For years, the feds collected phone records on calls made between people in the U.S. and those in countries connected to alleged drug trafficking activities. (For more on Barr's drug war, read Reason Senior Editor Jacob Sullum's column from December.)

This program would serve as a sort of precursor to the National Security Agency surveillance enabled by the PATRIOT Act following the 9/11 terror attacks. And while Barr was no longer working in the federal government by the time the PATRIOT Act was implemented, he still defended the program, which civil liberties advocates believe violated the Fourth Amendment's protections against warrantless searches. Testifying before the House Intelligence Committee in 2003, Barr even suggested the PATRIOT Act didn't go far enough.

Paul, for his part, has always been uneasy regarding Barr's nomination. "I'm concerned that he's been a big supporter of the PATRIOT Act, which lowered the standard for spying on Americans," the Kentucky Republican told Meet the Press in December. "And he even went so far as to say, you know, the PATRIOT Act was pretty good, but we should go much further."

 

Like those whiners at the ACLU, Paul is still butthurt over the PATRIOT Act.

And maybe one or two other things, it seems.

Quote

“I am unable to support Bill Barr’s nomination to be the next Attorney General. While I support President Trump and have supported most of his nominees, I have too many concerns about the record and views of this nominee. Bill Barr was a leading proponent of warrantless surveillance, and his overall record on the Fourth Amendment is troubling to me. I remain concerned that Bill Barr does not agree with our bipartisan efforts to reform our criminal justice system. Finally, Bill Barr has a troubling record on the Second Amendment. For these reasons, I voted today against his nomination for Attorney General.”

 

So, drug warrior, security state fanatic, and gun grabber. An AG specifically chosen for all the things libertarians dislike, it seems.

A commentator on the TV news (I know, how old fashioned is that) this morning said "Mr Barr is in danger of sliding down a moral slope from being the Attorney General of United States, the top law enforcement officer in the country, to being another one of Trump's lawyers."

Barr should remember that Trump often stiffs his lawyers, and (as far as the public can tell) always lies to them.

Firstly Barr is not holding all the cards, special investigator director Mueller holds those. AG Barr is working directly with Mueller and his team to go through and redact the sensitive material from his (Mueller's) report. If you don't trust Barr then Mueller must be complicit as well. Or you're a fucking troll.

Barr is a lawyer.  Smart lawyers will protect their standing with the ABA and state bar association.  That means doing nothing that can get them disbarred.  

This guy knows the law and he's riding the razor's edge as long as he can.  But the House is filled with lawyers who will eventually push Barr to the point he either has to risk his law license or comply.  That's where the blame game comes in.

When the time comes Barr has to comply with the law or risk being disbarred, he will comply and then blame everything on the Democrats.  It's Chapter 1 in the Republican playbook.  Then the Pubs will all rally behind him blaming the Dems for whatever the fallout is, especially if Trump goes down.  And the Pub loyalists will swallow that bullshit hook, line and sinker and drive that wedge deeper and deeper, weakening our country further.

And history will tell the story of how the Republican Rebels stood strong against the Yankee Imperialists and helped Mother Russia make American Great Again.

Actually the SDNY holds most of the cards now.  Mueller holds very few save his possible  testimony before Congress. Barr holds some to but he’s in the tank for Trump.  That said medium term he won’t be able to stop this thing from unwinding.

I stopped trusting him when he spoke for transparency, but  limited by the rules in play. That bit sounded okay, but I understand that each AG writes those rules.

His 19 page thesis was another tell.  His mention of Uranium One was a third.

It doesn’t matter that Barr worked with Mueller on the redactions any redaction will be considered protecting Trump from the known “fact” that there was collusion  and he did obstruct.

Wow! Am I the last American that doesn't have ties to Russia????

"A few of Barr’s previous employers are connected to key subjects in the probe. And some argue that, even if Barr didn’t break any rules, his financial ties to companies linked to aspects of the Russia investigation raise questions about whether he should—like his predecessor, Jeff Sessions—recuse himself. 

“The legal standard is really clear about these issues. It’s not about actual conflict, it’s about the appearance of a conflict, about the appearance of bias,” Jed Shugerman, a professor at Fordham University’s School of Law and an expert on judicial and government ethics, tells Newsweek . “The problem is that we have so many flagrant conflicts that are so obvious, we get distracted from what the legal standard is.” 

This much is known: On Barr’s public financial disclosure report, he admits to working for a law firm that represented Russia’s Alfa Bank and for a company whose co-founders allegedly have long-standing business ties to Russia. What’s more, he received dividends from Vector Group, a holding company with deep financial ties to Russia. 

These facts didn’t get much attention during Barr’s confirmation hearing, as Congress was hyperfocused on an unsolicited memo Barr wrote prior to his nomination, which criticized the special counsel’s investigation—and whether he would release an unredacted Mueller report to Congress. Much of the information is public, but it has so far been unreported in relation to Barr..."

b)  Meh.

c)  Freakin' brilliant as is!!

And the fun begins -

Judge in FOIA case says he may want to review DOJ redactions of Mueller report after release

Excerpt -

https://www-m.cnn.com/2019/04/16/politics/judge-foia-doj-redactions-mueller-report/

(CNN) — Federal District Judge Reggie Walton expressed uncertainty about the redactions Attorney General William Barr is making to special counsel Robert Mueller's report and suggested he may want to review the Justice Department's redactions for himself once versions of it are made public.
"Obviously there is a real concern as to whether there is full transparency," Walton said at a Tuesday court hearing in Washington about a request from BuzzFeed News to have the Justice Department release the report quickly under the Freedom of Information Act. "The attorney general has created an environment that has caused a significant part of the American public to be concerned" about the redactions.

Perhaps I misunderstood. Thought you were referring to us lefties on this forum. 

Edit - As to Schiff’s comment, I’ll defer to Mueller (assuming Barr didn’t mislead to that extent).

The White House has not seen the Mueller report that completely exonerates the Pride of the GOP, but is preparing a rebuttal to it.

these repubs can turn things around suprisingly fast

 

Barr pretended to do it in two days  - although he had been across the report for weeks so he did nothing over those two days other than to control the timing and put on the car charade

ditto white-house rebuttal of tommorrows effort - ready and loaded because  of course the trump lawyers have seen or been briefed in depth on every word - to think otherwise would be naive to the point of being delusional

the report appearing on the eve of good friday is so bloody cheeky it takes the breath away

I am going to bet that there has been an outragous amount of redacting.

However, just as the enemies of our lord tried to bury him on a Friday only for him to resurrect a couple  of days later then I think that the Mueller report might go through  a similar processand emerge in all its truthgiving glory - shining light all around

If there is a serious amount of misdirection and weird redactions, I wonder if the Dems would go for impeaching Barr?

My prediction is that the report that we see will have the appearance of having been repainted with a paint roller. As I posted earlier, somewhere, if more than 50% of it is altered, it is no longer the work of the Mueller team. 

Someday we will see the real report. I doubt that day will be tomorrow.  I expect to see more distraction, delay, and distortion until the Pride of the GOP is out of office, after which there will be a concerted effort to pretend that he never existed, much like we saw after the term of George the Lesser. The GOP burned up its chance to rebrand itself with the TEA Party after him, so who knows what they will come up with after this train wreck.  Sometime after that, we will see the whole report and attachments.

they can do nothing unless the report is so bad that some repubs lose faith in Mr Trump and are prepared to vote  in favour of truth, honesty and transparency

Well, we know how that's going to fly. Party above country, at all times.
