The Department of No Justice Proves Some People Are Above The Law
Attorney General William Barr says the Department of Justice (DOJ) is investigating "potential crimes" related to the Russia-hoax/Witch Hunt against President Trump. At a press conference today, Barr stated:
"The law enforcement and intelligence apparatus of this country were involved in advancing a false and utterly baseless Russian collusion narrative against the President. ... We saw two different standards of justice emerge: one that applied to President Trump and his associates, and the other that applied to everybody else. We can't allow this ever to happen again."
Barr also said he does not expect a "criminal investigation" into either the former president or former VP and current Democrat presidential front-runner Joe Biden. He added that the DOJ probe is "focused on others" and their "potential criminality."
+ + So, What's the Bad News?
To millions of Americans, it's good news that the DOJ is investigating possible illegal activity by "others" in the Obama administration. The bad news is that Barr's statements today are likely to push Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) back into "hiding."
Last week, when discussing the targeting of Mr. Trump's former national security advisor Gen. Michael Flynn, Graham told FOX News, "I'm not going to do anything to interfere in an ongoing criminal case. ... That'd be unethical. That’d be wrong." So, will the South Carolina Senator use the DOJ investigation as an excuse NOT to involve the Senate Judiciary Committee, yet again?
For 220 years, the United States enjoyed a peaceful transition of presidential power. Americans need to know if that ended in 2016. What role did the members of the Obama administration play in surveilling the incoming president and/or his staff? It's time for the GOP-led Senate to demand ObamaGate answers!
+ + Graham's Hot Air And Empty Threats
Graham, who has subpoena power, has done little to hold anyone from the previous administration accountable for undermining Mr. Trump. While the South Carolina senator has pledged for years to call witnesses to answer for their roles in a possible Obama-Clinton conspiracy, his promises have been nothing but hot air and empty threats. GOP Senators must investigate ObamaGate now and help the President "drain the swamp"!
