Let’s check those canaries . . .

I think it is important to touch upon the Flynn case.  Why, well besides the fact that Barr was corrupt when in the Reagan administration, a fact every senator seemed to forget, he was approved to be the attorney general.  In the Regan admin Barr was the person who told Regan to just pardon Oliver North (for high treason, although he was not convicted of that).  In that affair Regan went around Congress and sold arms to Iran to fund the Contra rebels in Central America.  Congress had disapproved funding, so they sold arms to our enemy to fund their pet project.

So besides all that mess, he applied for the job with an open letter where he touts his beliefs that a President is a King, in fact if not in detail; that a Presidents power is absolute, when that is not how the Constitution is read at all, but rather a philosophy used to interpret that document in favor of that idea. The document explicitly states a President is not a king, after all we had just revolted to escape from the rule of Kings.

Besides all of that, Barr as AG has been a weapon for the POTUS, when he is supposed to be the prosecutor for the nation, the People’s attorney.  In the Flynn case, instead of moving forward with all the things which have been happening in our nation, Barr instead looks back and digs for a document to support the presidents ‘Deep State’ platform.  As I understand it they found mail where two FBI are talking about how to ‘get’ the suspect.  He then uses that as justification to drop the case, to which the suspect had already pled guilty, twice.

The notion seems to me ‘they were out to get him’, as if that is wrong.  All cops and FBI are out to get all suspects, all the time.  They are allowed to lie to suspects, misinform them, emotionally batter them and keep them up for long hours, all to wear a suspect down.  If all this is the norm, how is an email between to investigators from the FBI, talking about ‘how do we get this guy’, anything out of the ordinary at all? 

Even if they are saying ‘If we ask him A, he will either have to lie (your busted for lying to the FBI) or admit to the crime (your busted for the crime), let’s try that.” The answer is it is not abnormal at all, but SOP. Unless you assume a corrupt conspiracy beforehand where said investigators knew of a surety that a suspect was innocent and then proceeded.  That is actually standard operational procedure(SOP), and I think that is why the lead prosecutor resigned on the spot when Barr issued that dictum.  Barr has done so much damage to the courts I fear they will be lucky if people keep heeding them.
