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.

DA Says Andrew Brown Shooting was ‘Justified’, ‘Tragic’

New video evidence was released on Tuesday to explain the justification.

Published

Weeks ago, the small town of Elizabeth City, North Carolina was rocked by another police-involved shooting of an unarmed man named Andrew Brown Jr. Police had arrived to execute an arrest warrant on Brown, who had attempted to flee the scene when he was shot by officers.  Lawyers for Brown’s family suggested that the shooting was an “execution”, and demanded that authorities release body cam footage of the killing to the public. Now, the county’s district attorney has stated that, while the incident was certainly “tragic”, the police officers were justified in their use of force. North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble said at a press conference on Tuesday that the deputy-involved shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. “while tragic, was justified” – and no law enforcement officers will be criminally charged in the case. Womble, the elected district attorney for Judicial District 1, which covers seven counties of the northeastern part of the state, said that Brown was shot at by three Pasquotank deputies, whose actions were “justified because Brown’s actions caused deputies to reasonably believe it necessary to use force to protect themselves and others.” Womble began playing four body camera videos during the press conference, which was broadcast by several news outlets. Brown ignored deputies’ commands to stop and began to drive his car directly at one of the officers, Womble said. He said the first shot fired at Brown’s car went through the front windshield, not the back as was previously reported. The newly released portion of video was available online, and is graphic in nature. https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1394751010938183684?s=20 There is no telling if the explanation will satisfy police reform protesters, however, and Elizabeth City could see renewed protests in the coming days.

CDC Mask Guidline Confusion Demonstrated in Latest Polling

Americans just don’t seem to trust the CDC.

Published

Around the nation, businesses are reopening to full capacity, fans are filling the stadium stands, and bands are announcing their touring plans, thanks to the diminishing perception of a threat stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. This has been a long time coming for Americans, and some carry with them a wee bit of trepidation still about the coming recovery. A new poll shows that many Americans are even having a hard time processing the CDC’s latest mask-guideline adjustment. A significant portion of the public still believes in wearing a mask outside regardless of guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a recent survey. The survey indicates that forty-two percent of respondents believe everyone in their area should continue to wear a mask regardless of the CDC guidelines. Of the respondents, 39 percent said everyone should follow the CDC guidelines that state masks are only necessary outdoors when in crowds compared to only 19 percent of respondents who actually believe “everyone should do [what] they want regardless of guidelines.” And, somewhat surprisingly: Of those who believe in continuing to wear masks, broken down by party, the results were almost even; 36 percent of Republicans and 37 percent of Democrats want everyone around them to wear masks. Of course, the distrust that Americans naturally have for their government shouldn’t be overlooked either, as their handling of the coronavirus pandemic has spawned a number of protests and lawsuits around the nation.
