Democrats have put a target on William Barr’s back.
They thought they were getting close to taking him down.
But Barr just sent the Democrats into a tailspin with one sentence.
Attorney General William Barr is very high on the Democrats’ enemy list.
They’ve had their sights set on him from day one.
Recently, 2,000 former Department of Justice officials signed a petition started by the left-wing activist group Protect Democracy calling for Barr’s resignation.
The petition was used by the Democrat Media Complex to turn the screw on Barr, but it didn’t work despite their best efforts.
The Washington Post wrote that Barr was considering quitting because of Donald Trump’s Twitter feed.
But Barr immediately threw cold water on the speculation.
Barr spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said on Twitter, “Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.”
And just like that, the supposedly damaging petition was rendered moot.
But a closer examination of the petition shows just how irrelevant it was.
The petition was signed by people actively under investigation by Barr and lead investigator John Durham.
The former DOJ officials who signed the petition include disgraced deep state bigwigs John Brennan and James Clapper.
They were both caught lying about illegal surveillance on American citizens and members of the U.S. Senate.
Fittingly, they both worked for the Obama administration, which surveilled members of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.
And the FISA applications used to spy on the campaign were submitted on the basis of the fabricated Steele dossier, which the FBI knew was fraudulent.
These are part of the rogues’ gallery looking to take out Barr.
They’re doing so under the pretense that Barr is a Trump stooge, but they know that isn’t the case.
Barr reiterated that he doesn’t make any decisions based on the President’s Twitter feed.
Barr has a long track record of being a straight shooter.
He was Attorney General under George H.W. Bush, so he didn’t come out of retirement to be a puppet.
Barr was troubled by the Democrats’ shameful assault on rule of law.
As soon as Barr said he was looking into the origins of the Russiagate hoax, Democrats began to panic and train their guns on Barr.
Since they can’t knock out Barr, their next best hope is to discredit his findings, which will likely be incredibly damning for the Obama administration.
DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz only scratched the surface when he determined that the FBI abused the FISA court process in order to maintain surveillance on the Trump campaign.
While the Democrats are up in arms over Barr, they couldn’t care less that John F. Kennedy appointed his brother to Attorney General, or that Obama AG Eric Holder called himself Obama’s “wingman.”
If the Democrats are looking for an attorney general that’s in the bag for the President, they’re looking in the wrong party.
