I wonder if someone finally got around to realizing that Donny might not always be president....

Problem is finding something that Obama did that Trump didn't do worse.

Well first you have to find an actual crime, Bagpipe Boy.
 
2020-05-18 3:27:52 PM  
OH OH, if Barr is an IG, that means Trump is about to fire him.

/no longer have full confidence in IG Barr!
 
2020-05-18 3:29:07 PM  
Barr answered that he wouldn't address Trump's remarks specifically but denounced "increasing attempts to use the criminal justice system as a political weapon."

Amen, it's about time you called out your boss...oh wait, you're talking about Obama? Is it possible for these assholes not to be hypocrites for a single five minute stretch of their lives?

I didn't see anyone questioning giving Dubya supreme power with the PATRIOT act, even though Hillary appeared to have it in the bag.  Anyone willing to follow Trump isn't concerned about consequences.

I hope everyone has earplugs. The whing from the MAGAts is going to be so loud that even they will need them.

... takes a walk on the wild side... yep. They mad. As usual.

The F'ing Democrats won't abide by that BS! If they ever get in power again they'll attack conservatives like a pack of starved wolves!!! Two justice systems explained on national TV!!! BS!!!!

The Durham report is going to be a massive let down for the right. The most he'll find is process violations or mistakes, no actual crimes.

I enjoy using the Trump arguments against MAGAs.

The scream "Biden/Burisma"
I counter with "Do you have tape of Joe Biden saying 'this is a quid pro quo?""  No?  then STFU it's just second hand information from a never Biden.  No collusion.

"Mister Attorney General: What specific federal crime do you believe President Obama and/or Vice President Biden committed?"

Barr: "well, er, um"

You guys are so farking stupid if you believe that.

What he said doesn't matter.  They don't care about internal consistency they care about getting what they want.  If what they say when they want something doesn't make sense with what they said when they wanted the last thing, that doesn't matter.

Making sense isn't important.  Getting what you want is all that's important.

I was out in the back yard playing Frisbee with the kids. Then the wife came outside through the kitchen door. That look on her face....I knew it was bad. I braced myself for the worst, but even then.... It's still hard to talk about it. There would be no Two and a Half Men that night. The channel would remain fixed on the news as the tragedy continued to unfold.

We always remember what we were doing when we first heard about the tan suit.

Always.
 
2020-05-18 4:25:56 PM  
It is all well and good to use this whole "Obamagate" as propaganda, but to actually try to prosecute is not realistic and trying to force a prosecution would be detrimental to them all. See, Barr and Yurtle the Turtle fully understands this, Trump does not

POOP THREAD.

I'm so sorry. I always type in the hope i'm on topic.

Eventually everyone will have had enough of this shiat.


Thank you filter in advance.

"Presidentin' while black, and being an accessory to presidentin' while black."

See, Barr forgot one crucial word:

"When a Republican president does it, that means that it is not illegal."

Don't forget the two counts of conspiracy to commit Presidentin' while Black, one in 2008 and one in 2012.

If Biden is ever President, Barr will not be working for the DOJ, so I don't see how that is a problem.
 
2020-05-18 5:16:24 PM

Sounds to me like even Billy Barr has had enough of Donnie's antics.
 
2020-05-18 5:19:49 PM  
"We are not going to lower the standards just to achieve a result," he said, before adding he did not expect criminal investigations into either Obama or Biden.

Hahahahaha......

flondrix: If Biden is ever President, Barr will not be working for the DOJ, so I don't see how that is a problem.


What are the odds of him working with the DOJ in exchange for a lower sentence?
 
2020-05-18 5:21:31 PM  
Huh. I wonder who Barr's replacement is going to be. Is Big Dick Toilet guy doing anything?

Trump will probably just put Kushner in there lmao.
 
2020-05-18 5:23:26 PM  
Oh, come on.

Hypocrisy is not just a hobby for this guy, it's a lifestyle. There's no difficulty here.

flondrix: If Biden is ever President, Barr will not be working for the DOJ, so I don't see how that is a problem.


I could see Barr "investigating" whatever the fark Obamagate is supposed to be, and making up an excuse to arrest Obama and Biden before November.

Maybe it'll happen, maybe it won't, but there is NOTHING beneath this administration.

Pants full of macaroni!!: See, Barr forgot one crucial word:

I don't think Barr would say that out loud.  Trump might.
 
2020-05-18 7:01:14 PM  
Obama is the most squeaky clean president since Jimmy Carter. There's nothing to prosecute.

Well I believe in God, and the only thing that scares me is Barack Obama.


/And like that, he's gone!
 
2020-05-18 7:58:55 PM  
He says they're not targeting Obama or Biden, just looking into other people.  Much like looking into Russian interference in the 2016 election and finding Trump's people.  If they really are just looking at other people, why would they make a public statement about who they're survelling?  Investigators don't do that.
 
2020-05-18 8:00:31 PM  
So, about 2 weeks before the election, Bill Barr will announce that they're opening an investigation into Hillary or Barack or Biden or whoever.  It worked 4 years ago, so why not go with it again?

What's the latest Vegas odds that Trump pardons everyone in his administration before his last day in office?

Bermuda59: What's the latest Vegas odds that Trump pardons everyone in his administration before his last day in office?


The second week of January Trump will be busy trying to get his fat ass out of the US and plopped down in a country that we can't extradite him from.  Saudi Arabia or Russia is my bet.  SA, probably, because he they'll let him live like a king, not Russia because they may not let him live at all.

My bet, with odds of 1:1, is Abu Dhabi.

Errr, in the UAE.
 
2020-05-18 10:48:06 PM  
A week and a half ago Lindsey Graham was warning Trump against launching Obamagate investigations, and now he hear about him seeking subpoena powers to do just that.

So don't count this as a win.

Do pardons have to specifically list the crimes the person is being pardoned for?  What if they haven't been charged yet, and by the time they are charged, the person who issued the pardon is no longer president?
