“Don’t be satisfied with the Mueller report. This is bound to happen again because these arrogant, condescending, lying, leaking haters of you and me and the America that doesn’t have power, will do it again unless we stop them. And the only way to stop them is with justice. True justice- behind bars justice,” Decide Jeanine Pirro, Fox Information Channel, Writer of  Radicals, Resistance and Revenge: The Left’s Plot to Remake America.

The new U.S. Attorney General William Barr testified before Congress on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Democratic Senators requested he come back from more grilling, but Barr stated, “No Mas.”

On Wednesday morning, the nation’s lawmakers, information correspondents, political operatives, authorities regulation enforcement and intelligence officers, in addition to interested partisans inside the two main political parties and the smaller organizations — comparable to the Libertarian Social gathering, the Green Celebration, the Structure Get together of America and others — have been practically glued to the flooring of the U.A. Senate. It was an enormous day for the Senate Democrats: They have been going to be briefed by Attorney General Bill Barr on the lately launched Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report that he and his legal group of partisan Democrats admitted contained no felony allegation.

Nevertheless, the Senate listening to relating to the Mueller Report gave Democrats the means to resort to name-calling, conjecture, providing unsubstantiated info and turning the idea of “innocent until proven guilty” on its head. It additionally confirmed how weak-kneed most of the Republicans are since they nonetheless control the Senate and it’s oversight committees and but they’re permitting their opposition in the Democratic Celebration and the leftist information media to smear and sneer [at] the GOP without offering any corroboration.

What the Democratic Get together’s plan to management the media narrative didn’t anticipate was that many People have dropped or restricted their news studying and/or ceased their listening/watching news retailers corresponding to CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, and so on..

The Nellie Ohr Case

One news story that will probably be given the previous “quick shrift” undoubtedly can be the news media coverage of Nellie Ohr’s referral to the Department of Justice for an investigation into her connection between her employer, the well-known personal intelligence agency in Britain often known as Fusion GPS, which just happened to rent Nellie Ohr, who is married to one in every of the prime attorneys at the Justice Division.

According to a variety of news accounts and Beltway scuttlebutt, Nellie Ohr is the spouse of Division of Justice official Bruce Ohr. Ohr reportedly labored on the Hillary Clinton E-mail Case after which he worked on the case of Trump-Russia Collusion.

Mrs. Ohr was employed by Glenn Simpson (Fusion GPS) to conduct opposition research of Donald Trump in late 2015.  Nellie Ohr’s work was then utilized by former MI6  spy, Christopher Steele, in placing together a “Dirty Dossier” which was then shared with out-of-control partisans at the DOJ and FBI to target President Trump.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), member of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, at the moment questioned Attorney General Invoice Barr on the Department of Justice’s report on their investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election throughout a full committee listening to. There, Sen. Cruz highlighted Democrats’ failed attempts to denounce the validity of the Mueller report based mostly off their biased party-line views towards President Trump.

“I think this hearing today has been quite revealing to anyone watching it. Although perhaps not for the reason some of the Democratic Senators intended,” Sen. Cruz stated. “One thing that’s revealing in the discussions and questions that came up, a word that occurred almost none at all, is the word ‘Russia.’ For two and a half years, we heard Democratic senators going on and on and on about Russia collusion. Instead, the principle attack that the Democratic senators have marshalled upon you concerns this March 27th letter from Robert Mueller. And it’s an attack that I want people to understand just how revealing it is. If this is their whole argument, they ain’t got nothing.”

Watch Sen. Cruz’s line of questioning here and/or learn the full transcript is under:

Sen. Cruz: “Let me begin by simply saying thanks. You’ve had a very successful authorized career. You didn’t have to take this job. And you stepped ahead and answered the call, but again, understanding full properly that you would be topic to the sort of slanderous remedy, the Kavanaugh remedy, that we have now seen of senators impugning your integrity. And I, for one, am grateful that you simply answered that decision and are main the Division of Justice both with integrity and constancy to regulation. That’s what the nation rightly expects of our lawyer basic, and I consider you’re performing that very ably.

“I feel this hearing immediately has been quite revealing to anyone watching it. Though perhaps not for the purpose some of the Democratic Senators meant.

“One thing that’s revealing in the discussions and questions that came up, a word that occurred almost none at all, is the word “Russia.” For two and a half years, we heard Democratic senators going on and on and on about Russia collusion. We heard journalists going on and on about Russia collusion. Alleging, among different issues, some utilizing excessive rhetoric, calling the president a traitor. We heard little or no of that in this hearing at this time. As an alternative, the precept attack that the Democratic senators have marshalled upon you considerations this March 27th letter from Robert Mueller. And it’s an attack that I would like individuals to understand simply how revealing it’s. If this is their entire argument, they ain’t obtained nothing.

“So, their argument is as follows–let me see if I understand it appropriately. You initially, if you acquired the Mueller Report, released to Congress and the public a four-page summary of the conclusions. Then on March 27th, Mr. Mueller asked you to launch a further nineteen pages, the introduction and abstract that he had drafted. And certainly, in the letter what he says is, quote, ‘I am requesting that you provide these materials to Congress and authorize their public release at this time.’ And the cause he says, ‘It is to fully capture the context, nature and substance of the office’s work and conclusion.’

“And so, you did not release those 19 pages at that time. Instead, a couple of weeks later you released 448 pages. The entire report which includes those nineteen pages. Do I have that timeline correct?”

John Brennan was arguably the worst and most harmful CIA director in that agency’s history. Hopefully he can be indicted by a grand jury.

Attorney General Barr: “That’s right.”

Sen. Cruz: “So, their entire argument is: General Barr, you suppressed the 19 pages that are entirely public, that we have, that we can read, that they know every word of it, and their complaint is it was delayed a few weeks. That was because of your decision not to release the report piecemeal but rather to release those 19 pages along with the entire 448 pages produced by the Special Counsel?”

Attorney General Barr: “Yes.”

Sen. Cruz: “If that’s their argument, I have to say that’s an exceptionally weak argument. As a result of for those who’re hiding one thing, I’ll inform you right now Attorney General Barr, you’re doing a lousy job of hiding it. Because the thing they suggesting you hid, you released to Congress and the American individuals. So if anybody needs to know what’s in those 19 pages which are being so breathlessly, ‘Oh, Bob Mueller said release the 19 pages.’ You probably did. You did it a couple of weeks later. However, we will learn each phrase of the 19 pages together with the full report.

“In your judgment was the Mueller report thorough?”

Attorney General Barr: “Yes.”

Sen. Cruz: “Did they expend enormous time, energy and resources in investigating and producing that report?”

Attorney General Barr: “Yes.”

Sen. Cruz: “And the Mueller report concluded, flat out, on the question of Russian collusion the evidence did not support criminal charges?”

Attorney General Barr: “That’s right.”

Sen. Cruz: “And indeed the Mueller report, if I have these stats right, was compiled by 19 lawyers who were on the team, approximately forty FBI agents, intelligence analysts, forensic accountants, and professional staff. The Special Counsel issued more than 2,800 subpoenas, nearly 500 search warrants, more than 230 orders for communication records, almost 50 orders authorizing the use of pen registered, 13 requests to foreign government for evidence and interviewed approximately 500 witnesses. Is that correct?”

Attorney General Barr: “That’s right.”

Sen. Cruz: “So, we now have investigated over and again and again. And the substance of the accusations which were leveled at the president for two and a half years have magically disappeared. As an alternative, the grievance is the 19 pages that we will all learn that’s totally public might have been launched a number of weeks earlier. Oh, the calamity.

“Let me shift to a special matter that has already been addressed already quite a bit. I consider the Division of Justice underneath the Obama administration was profoundly politicized. And was weaponized to go after political opponents of the president.

“If that is the case, would you agree that politicizing the Department of Justice and weaponizing it to go after your political opponents is an abuse of power?”

Attorney General Barr: “I think it’s an abuse of power regardless of who does it.”

Sen. Cruz: “Of course.”

Attorney General Barr: “Yeah.”

Sen. Cruz: “To the best of your knowledge, when did surveillance of the Trump campaign begin?”

Attorney General Barr: “The position today appears to be that it began in July. But I do not know the answer to the question.”

Sen. Cruz: “It is an unusual thing, is it not, for the Department of Justice to be investigating a candidate for president, particularly a candidate from the opposing party of the party in power?”

Attorney General Barr: “Yes.”

Sen. Cruz: “Do we know if the Obama administration investigated any other candidates running for president?”

Attorney General Barr: “I don’t know.”

Sen. Cruz: “Do we know if they wiretapped any other–”

Attorney General Barr: “I’m sorry. I guess they were investigating Hillary Clinton for the email, the email thing.”

Sen. Cruz: “Do we know if there were wiretaps?

Attorney General Barr: “I don’t know.”

Sen. Cruz: “Do we know if there were efforts to send investigators in wearing a wire?”

Attorney General Barr: “I don’t know.”

Sen. Cruz: “So, General Barr, I would urge, you have had remarkable transparency. You promised this committee you would with regard to the Mueller report. You promised this committee and the American people you would release the Mueller report publicly. You have released the report. Anyone can read it, it’s right here. I appreciate that transparency. I would ask you to bring the same transparency to this line of questioning about whether and the extent to which the previous administration politicized the Department of Justice, targeted their political rivals, and used law enforcement and intelligence assets to surveil them improperly.”
