On the horns of a deadly dilemna

AG Barr is between a rock and a very hard place.

REMINDER – United States Attorney General Bill Barr was not around in 2017 or 2018 when the DOJ was faced with the issues resulting from an investigation of intelligence leaks and Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) Security Director James Wolfe.

When the prosecution of SSCI Director James Wolfe was being considered, AG Jeff Sessions was recused; the Robert Mueller probe was ongoing; and as a consequence Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein and U.S. Attorney for DC Jessie Liu were decision-makers.

I’m not going to repeat all the issues, you can re-read them HERE; however, the baseline is that Wolfe could not be prosecuted without running the risk of collapsing key institutions of the U.S. government. The consequences of a Wolfe prosecution were beyond the capacity of Rod Rosenstein, or the DOJ to handle. There would have been massive constitutional crises created and the literal definition of ‘sedition‘ was at the center of it.

When you truly understand this context you also understand why Joseph Pientka III has a blanket protective order over him. The all-encompassing protective order is as much about preserving and protecting the institution of the DOJ as it is protecting the fulcrum of corrupt activity Supervisory Special Agent One, Joseph Pientka III, represents.

The DOJ had to throw a bag over Pientka or eliminate him. Thankfully, and not surprisingly, they chose the former and now he’s under federal protection; so they can continue the cover-up. If it had been an Obama/Clinton AG, they’d have just killed him.

In 2018 DAG Rosenstein could not prosecute James Wolfe without exposing ‘seditious‘ activity within the U.S. government itself. Not pretend sedition or theoretical sedition, but an actual pre-planned subversive operation with forethought and malice.

Likewise AG Bill Barr could not prosecute Andrew McCabe without exposing the same ‘seditious‘ activity; which also encompasses the activity of Rod Rosenstein. Whether Barr wants to protect Rosenstein is moot; if Barr wants to protect the institutions from sunlight on two years of actual seditious activity, he has to protect Rosenstein.

It’s the underlying activity that cannot be allowed to surface; the institutions of government are not strong enough, nor are they set-up to handle, prosecutions that overlap all three branches of government.

However, that said, now AG Bill Barr is facing a downstream and parallel issue within the prosecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. How can Michael Flynn be sentenced for lying to the FBI when the DOJ is necessarily refusing to prosecute Andrew McCabe (at least what has been made public) for the exact same behavior?

Against this dynamic, the DOJ has two options: (Option A) go even harder at General Flynn using additional charges that are not as comparable to McCabe. (Option B) find a way to drop the prosecution.

Take the totality of all these issues together. Think about them for a while…

…Now do we see why AG Bill Barr needed President Trump to shut up?

When Barr said “he’s making it harder for me to do my job”, in essence President Trump was making it harder for Barr to protect his institutions. Trump is too much sunlight.

At the heart of the matter, in the real activity that took place, there was a multi-branch seditious effort to remove President Donald J Trump. From the perspective of those charged with the actual administration of justice – there is no way to put this in front of the American public and have the institutions survive. What we are witnessing is a dance between increasingly narrowing rails and the DOJ, via Bill Barr, trying to find an exit.

Oh, what a tangled web we weave. Personally, I’m surprised they haven’t tried to take Sundance out yet.

  1. And yet again:

    There are no “good employees” in either the FBI or the DoJ.  And there have not been any since AT LEAST Whitey Bulger.  Continue on through Hutaree militia, Ruby Ridge, Waco (I and II), Senator Stevens, Fast and Furious, Bundy Ranch, Malheur, and Garland, Texas.  Execute every one of them for their treason.  Then put their heads on pikes around the Beltway.  Pour encourager les autres!!!

  2. WTF? Why do we have to protect the Institutions if they were and are full of seditious lying creeps?
    This is total BS!

  3. Regarding Sundance, I’ve had the same thoughts.

    Early I had hopes that Barr would go after the criminals. He may yet, and I understand that a crime as deep and wide involving many government officials is the very definition of cross the T’s and dot the i’s, regardless of the time required and how it looks from outside. So I still rate the Barr/Durham approach as hopeful. Which is worth what you pay for it.

    My fear is that, assuming Barr himself is not corrupted, that he may not realize want to believe the assault on Trump is really an assault on the republic. That wrong notion would allow them to protect institutions for the good of the country because they believe an FBI is a necessity, while I believe it is a criminal operation and has been starting with Hoover.

    I’d be happy to dissolve the FBI and most of our “intelligence” community. The states can handle all FBI functions and the military already has intelligence covered.

  4. I’d be happy to dissolve the FBI and most of our “intelligence” community.

    The FBI is part of the intelligence community. They were created as the domestic intelligence agency counterpart to our foreign intelligence services of the time, as the foreign intelligence agencies were (nominally) blocked from domestic spying.

    That’s why the FBI was so heavily involved in domestic counter-intel during WWII and the Cold War against both U.S. German, Japanese, and Russian intelligence ops in the CONUS.

    1. Sure, and I’d get rid of them all. The FBI charter includes collecting intelligence among the investigatory functions. Nothing the states or the military can’t or already do.
