Dean James at Right Wing Tribune
As you know, Attorney General William Barr testified at the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee to answer questions about the “Russia collusion” investigation recently completed by special counsel Robert Mueller.
Of course the Dems did nothing but bitch and whine because their fantasy about Trump being a Russian agent who colluded with Putin has been proven to be completely false.
During the slugfest Barr pointed out that the Trump presidency has been dominated by this Russian collusion hoax and that Mueller’s report proves it and it’s time to accept it and move on.
“How did we get to the point here where the evidence is now that the president was falsely accused of colluding with the Russians, and accused of being treasonous, and accused of being a Russian agent?” Barr asked, pointing out that “the evidence now is that was without a basis.”
“Two years of his administration have been dominated by the allegations that have now been proven false,” he said.
Barr offered the assessment late into Wednesday’s hearing, which saw the attorney general face down questions from Democrats who accused him of misrepresenting special counsel Robert Mueller’s final Russia report.
Democrats accused Barr of downplaying evidence that Mueller gathered showing Trump attempted to obstruct the Mueller probe. Barr defended his handling of the report. He received the report from Mueller on March 22, and released a four-page letter laying out its main conclusions two days later. He released a partially redacted version of the report just over three weeks later, on April 18.
Barr offered his summary of the origins of the Russia probe after a particularly pointed exchange in which Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono accused him of lying to Congress about his handling of the Mueller report.
Democratic lawmakers and liberal pundits have long accused Trump of being a Russian stooge and of conspiring with the Kremlin to win the 2016 election. One major source for the unfounded allegations was a dossier authored by a former British spy who worked in 2016 for the Clinton campaign and DNC.
Christopher Steele, the dossier author, provided his reports about Trump’s alleged Russian ties to the FBI as well as to the media. The FBI relied heavily on Steele’s work to obtain surveillance warrants against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.
The claims that the campaign colluded or that Trump is a Russian agent were all but debunked by Mueller’s 448-page report.
Barr said, “The job of the Justice Department is now over… the report is now in the hands of the American people. Everyone can decide for themselves. There’s an election in 18 months – that’s a very democratic process. But we’re out of it.”
Now the dems are calling for Barr to resign.
These morons just can’t get over the fact that Hillary lost.
