Attorney general misleads Congress and undermines country with handling of Mueller Report
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi remains—to me—on solid ground. “The Donald” should not be impeached.
The same is not the case with his latest loser appointee, William “I’m Your Puppet” Barr. Barr should be impeached for contempt of Congress, obstruction of justice, and more. If Barr isn’t giving aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States (a significant part of the Constitutional definition of treason) by covering up executive branch obstruction of justice, Barr is undermining the Republic and covering for an elected leader whom the Founding Fathers intended to be accountable to Congress, the branch covered in Article One.
When Barr—the Attorney General of the United States of America—said Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary committee that the President is “Constitutionally allowed” to stop an investigation if he determines it is based on false information, the only thing he didn’t tell us was what constitution he was referring to. Perhaps it was the constitution of a so-called “banana republic.”
Various political hacks are clearly in contempt of Congress. The public may not think contempt of Congress rises to the level of “high crimes and misdemeanors,” but I suspect that is due largely to a lack of familiarity with what was/is included in the Constitution.
And, oh, by the way, in my opinion the Senate Judiciary Committee’s interrogatory of Attorney General William Barr makes it clear that Cory Booker is in over his head running for President in 2020, just as “Lyin Ted” Cruz was in over his head when he ran for the Republican nomination in 2016. He does look slick on television—for what that may be worth.
Please indulge one more outrageous viewpoint. South Carolina Senator, Lindsay Graham, is a credit to his intellectual mentor, secessionist Senator John C. Calhoun. Calhoun may have missed Article Six in the United States Constitution. Not only was Lindsay instrumental in getting us into the Iraq War (see his disgracefully misinformed interview with Tim Russert on “Meet the Press”), but he now spends much of his time trying to squelch legislative scrutiny of those arguably committing obstruction of justice and contempt of Congress, even though The Founders clearly intended for Congress to be first among “equals” and play that role.
