‘Hatchet Job on Their Own Intelligence Services”


The Ukrainians weren’t the only ones pressured to help President Trump’s 2020 campaign. Attorney General Bill Barr also put the squeeze the British.

From U.K.’s liberal The Independent

One British official with knowledge of Barr’s wish list presented to London commented that “it is like nothing we have come across before, they are basically asking, in quite robust terms, for help in doing a hatchet job on their own intelligence services”.

  1. I believe I’ve seen plenty enough of this sh*# storm already. Both parties need to be charged with malpractice of the science of politics. DOG give me strength.

    I’m not quite sure why people are still surprised at the way this administration’s appointees, William Barr for instance are conducting themselves given their past histories.

    Assuming anyone is really surprised at this point. It is obvious that the Trump administration is a bust. However we need to remember that the DOJ is deeply embedded in controversy along with NSA, CIA and fifteen other intelligence entities.

    Far too much is escaping close scrutiny and the republicans have engineered things this way as a distraction. DOJ and the security state are loving it, egging them on in fact. The actions are allowing time to distance themselves from a mess they have maybe engineered themselves. Who would know at this point?

    If the democrats had stormed into a closed meeting the republicans would have likely lynched the offenders

    These people and their republican backers seem hell bent to do what ever they please and to hell with the rule of law and the rest of the structure of government provided for by the constitution.

    There is plenty wrong with what is happening currently and the division of congress driven by continuous tumultuous politics of this administration may well kill the democracy if DOJ is not brought to it’s senses.

    Bill Barr needs to be out as A.G. for starters and the courts needs to address the behavior of the republicans in the house. These folks need to be tested for rabies or something for they are clearly a danger to themselves and others.

    The stubborn insistence by republicans and their lawyers that this man, this “Amber Armageddon”, should be left to drill large holes in the hull of the “ship of state” should qualify them for mental fitness evaluations.

    Thanks Jeff, time for rum!
