Democrats Demand Barr’s Resignation, threatens To Defund DOJ Investigations

The recent attacks by Democrats on Attorney General William Barr are actually portrayed as a reaction to the Justice Department’s (DOJ) decision to intervene in the prosecution of Trump associate Roger Stone. That is not the whole story, though. Remarks by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) might have exposed her party’s genuine agenda: to hinder – and also halt – the on-going DOJ investigation into the genesis of the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.

The four attorneys handling the prosecution of Stone signed off on a sentencing memo, which advised the 67-year-old to receive a prison term of between seven and nine years. To put that in perspective, child molesters, rapists, and repeat-offender drunk drivers responsible for dangerous road accidents have served less jail time. Stone, who has absolutely no previous criminal record, has been convicted of lying to Congress, witness tampering, and obstructing the House investigation into the Russian affair.

These are all victimless criminal offenses which, one could argue, shouldn’t be looked at as criminal activity because Stone himself was unwittingly swept up in a fake, politically motivated investigation based almost entirely on uncorroborated claims, media reports, and hearsay.

Media coverage of the DOJ’s intervention within the case has painted the entire affair as far more dramatic than it is. The Department considered the recommendation of seven to nine years to be excessive, and so it stepped in and recommended a lower sentence.

If media reports are to be taken at face value, though, the DOJ only intervened because President Trump tweeted judgments of the proposed sentence for Stone. Additionally, the Justice Department – doing the president’s bidding – has overruled both the prosecutors and the judge dealing with the case. Of course, neither is true.

The Department’s objection to the proposed sentence was filed before the president’s tweet, according to officials. Furthermore, the revised recommendation is just that: It does not command the judge to impose a lighter sentence. As Liberty Nation Legal Affairs Editor Scott D. Cosenza, Esq. explains:

“Stone will be sentenced by Judge Amy Berman Jackson – not by the Justice Department or anyone else. You could be forgiven for thinking somehow that the DOJ was the sentencing body, given how the story has been reported. The DOJ often recommends sentences to judges, but it has no legal basis for doing anything other than recommended. Judges impose sentences.”

Speaking to CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Sen. Warren called for Barr’s resignation and suggested that if he would not step down, House Democrats could impeach him. The senator went a step further, though, by recommending that the House might push to “defund” Department of Justice investigations: “And the United States Congress right now should put a writer on an upcoming bill to say, ‘Hey, no funding of any investigations that Barr meddles into,’” Warren told Cooper.

Strange indeed to claim the United States attorney general is “meddling” by doing the very thing he was appointed to do, but Warren has let the cat out of the bag. Democrats seem very anxious about what John Durham, the federal prosecutor appointed by Barr to investigate the origins of the Russian conspiracy theory, might uncover. Their aim, therefore, may be to discredit the A.G. and, by extension, the Durham investigation. Shutting it down altogether would likely be their ideal scenario.

Furthermore, the president’s political enemies have shown themselves to be determined to pursue multiple investigations into every aspect of his conduct as well as his business transactions prior to taking office. They are attempting to prevent the DOJ from taking any steps to reign in their excesses and taking out Barr, and they seem to sense that it will be essential to that end.

What Warren is suggesting – the defunding of DOJ investigations – would be the clearest example of something the Democrats themselves have been crowing about for quite some time: obstruction of justice. There is no word on how long Durham will take to conclude his investigation. Warren – along with her Democrat colleagues – no doubt desires to prevent its verdict. Should Republicans retake the House in November, they should, possibly, think about doing some impeaching of their own.

  1. It’s sad that the dems are not working to fix the real problems this country is faceing they need to be tested for drugs and mental problems, they have a lot of them, and Trump needs to stop rubbing there noses in it.

    • Why should the President stop rubbing their noses, specially when these Demorats don’t stop lying every second of the day?
      They are trying to distract US from getting to know the TRUE. THESE RATS HAVE BEEN LYING FOR MANY MANY YEARS AND NOW ARE SCARE TO DEAD ABOUT AMERICA KNOWING THE TRUE AND MAYBE FILLING UP THE STATE PRISON.

  2. I am a Conservative and I support President Trump as he is standing up to the left and getting a lot accomplished, despite their constant interference. I just wish he would curb the twitting, or at least some of it, as he creates problems for himself by giving the Dems ammunition constantly as well as perhaps interfering with those fighting the left such as Bill Barr. The left has become very dangerous for this country and its citizens with their totally outlandish behavior. It’s obvious to anyone paying attention what their agenda is. And the double standard they enforce on Republicans is so blatant but they don’t seem to care about that. All they want is total control. The are ruining our beautiful country and betraying American citizens.

  3. How can anyone of sound mind feel that Roger Stone needs 9 yrs for something that even the person involved said didn’t happen,yet Andy McCabe can lie to Congress and get absolutely nothing.
    As far as the President and what he’s doing, it’s what we elected him for to have the integrity to go after these crooked politicians and not back down. Hid tweets seem to be calculated to bring out the panic of the left. To show they are guilty and clutching for any straw to stay out of jail .

  4. We know the real reason the Democrats want the DOJ to drop its investigation into their sinful affairs since they know the results will show more than they want the public to know of their many misdeeds. They have continually used liars and lies against this president since he was sworn in office. And they have done it so he would constantly be on the defensive, unable to spend time attacking them for all the evil they have collectively perpetrated against him. All, while Trump continued to do the job he was elected to perform [which is more than we can say of his many attackers]. Now it’s Trump’s turn! Chuck

  5. It’s nothing new that the Democrats would go after anyone who has in there possession true factual evidence that will incriminate them they will do all they can to stop them. Most of the Democratic Party are a bunch of hypocrites.

  6. It is not the person they are attacking. The democrats cannot handle losing and they get FOC! That’s why I call them Demonbrats. The anger and dis function is crazy!

  7. are they the party that believes in justice for all and no one is above the law to stop funds for investigations because now its democrats who are being investigating never vote democrat again stop the insanity once and for all….

  8. GOOD LUCK👍 BOY’S 👦AND 👧GIRLS OF THE DERANGED AND DEPLORABLE LOWLIFE SOCIALIST/COMMUNIST PARTY U MAY FIND YOURSELF’S OUTSIDE LOOKING IN ! I DON’T HAVE THE SAY SO TO SUSPEND FUNDING TO THE DOJ or the FBI. THAT’S JUST UR DERANGED MINDED.

  9. I want more Trump tweets. It’s the only way he can get out the truth of what the communist fascist dems and main stream media are doing to him, the republicans and conservatives. It’s also how he lays traps for the dems…….and like the morons they are, they always walk right into them. He’s just great at running rings around them!!!
