AG Bill Barr Says It’s ‘Infuriating’ That Schiff Keeps Insisting Collusion After ‘Collapse’ Of ‘Russiagate’

Published

Attorney General William Barr is none too happy with Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, as the head cheerleader of the impeachment effort against Trump continues to insist there was some kind of collusion between the president and Russia, despite the whole narrative collapsing on itself.

Barr called the insistence of wrongdoing in this case “infuriating,” which is probably a good choice of words. This whole mess has been going on for years now. There was a two-year investigation which produced nothing in the way of evidence to prove the president colluded with Russia.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Barr, who has served as Trump’s attorney general since early 2019, criticized members of the media for pushing what he views as false claims of Trump-Russia coordination and Democrats for saying one thing behind closed doors and another in front of the cameras.

Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo pressed Barr on Schiff’s repeated declarations of there being “collusion in plain sight” and asked the attorney general about “accountability.”

“Well, as far as public comments like these people have been making in press conferences and on television and so forth, you know, the accountability is really elections for Schiff. That’s why we have elections. If the people of his district want him to continue to behave as he has, then they can send him back to office,” Barr said in a clip of Fox News’s Sunday Morning Futures, which aired Tuesday on Fox News. “It is infuriating — and it’s the same phenomenon I discussed with the media — which is the media misled the American people grossly over a long period of time with exaggerated claims and misinformation and they haven’t been held accountable — and the same for a lot of these talking heads.”

The implosion of Russiagate is mostly due to the efforts of Richard Grenell, who was the acting Director of National Intelligence declassified a lot of documentation that brought to light all of the players involved with trying to concoct this little Russia nonsense, something that really seemed to tick off Schiff.

Some of the transcripts that were released show former President Obama’s spy chief, along with other top national security officials from his administration testifying they did not see any sort of direct evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.

James Clapper, the director of national intelligence for a good chunk of Obama’s time in office spoke to the committee on July of 2017 where he testified that he “never saw any direct empirical evidence” of anyone who was a part of Trump’s presidential campaign “plotting/conspiring” with the Russian government.

So why in the world does Schiff keep pushing this? Probably because it’s what the higher ups in the Democratic Party are telling him to do. The mission for these folks is to continue working to have Trump removed before he can win a second term this November, no matter how impossible the task might be.

Here’s to hoping they continue to come up short.

NC Democrat Who Slammed Coronavirus Program Received Millions From It

Published

on

North Carolina Democratic Senate nominee Cal Cunningham was a rather outspoken hater of the coronavirus stimulus package, but it seems that his criticisms weren’t enough to get him to forego allowing his company to receive $2 million in taxpayer dollars from the Paycheck Protection Program, which he claimed “harms communities.” Funny how many of these individuals on the left will slam a program like this, but secretly put their hands out for it when they think no one is watching. Here’s more on this from The Free Beacon: WasteZero, a Raleigh-based environmentalist trash service, obtained between $1 and $2 million in PPP funding on May 3, data released by the Small Business Administration on Monday show. Cunningham earned about $400,000 in 2019 in his role as the company’s general counsel and vice president. He has repeatedly criticized the federal program, which aims to support small businesses struggling with coronavirus shutdowns. Just two months after Senate Democrats blocked a Republican effort to bankroll the depleting fund in April, Cunningham called the program “unacceptable,” saying it “harms communities.” “For PPP loans to have ‘generally missed the industries and areas most heavily impacted by COVID-19′ is unacceptable,” he said in a tweet. “Leaving behind small businesses—and disproportionately those that are Black- and Latino-owned—harms communities.” The former state legislator “supports [WasteZero’s] outreach to municipal and state leaders,” according to an archive of the company’s website. Cunningham also has stock options and a convertible note of up to $50,000 tied to the company, according to his candidate financial report. Cunningham told reporters that he was still working for the company in February. He has since been removed from WasteZero’s website and the company does not publicly acknowledge any legal representation on its site. Neither Cunningham nor WasteZero responded to requests for comment about PPP or…

White House Now Considering $1 Trillion Pandemic Relief Bill

Published

on

The White House is mulling over a second coronavirus relief package and is estimating that it will cost somewhere in the ballpark of $1 trillion, according to reports from Marc Short, chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence. Yes, you read that correctly. That’s “trillion,” with a “t.” The last major bill that was crafted to help small businesses and individuals directly impacted by the coronavirus shutdown was over $600 billion. Short spoke with the folks on Bloomberg radio saying, “There’s obviously a lot of stimulus put in the system over the last couple of bills, and so the price tag for us would be that.” Folks, this is racking up the national debt in ways that are almost unfathomable to comprehend, which is why this isn’t a very good long term strategy. We cannot keep pumping funny money into the economy and expecting it to make a full recovery. What we need is to get back to producing, full swing, to stop things from getting worse. This requires state governors to open up their economies a bit faster than they already are and to loosen some restrictions on companies that might require such measures. Of course, we still need to be as careful as possible not to cause a second spike of the virus, but without herd immunity, this thing is never, ever going to go away. We have to think of the long term picture and not just the short-term. Leftists want to look at the mortality rate for this thing and want it to be zero, completely eliminated. That, of course, is a wonderful goal and something we should want as well. However, we have to acknowledge that as much as we want that, it’s not going to happen. People are still going to die from…
