Atty. Gen. William Barr has tapped how the Russian investigations all began.
There has been a constant drumbeat from Trump's propaganda network demanding a full investigation on those who investigated the Trump campaign, and the administration as well as the scope of Russia's involvement in trying to undermine the 2016 presidential election.
William Barr is now fulfilling those demands. It is now apparent that William Barr lied to Senator Kamala Harris when she asked him outright about whether he was pressured to open investigations on Trump's behalf.
During Barr’s Senate testimony, Harris directly asked the new Attorney General whether Trump or anyone connected to him had asked him to open up any investigations.
Barr pretended to be shocked by her question and at first feigned ignorance and then confusion.
AG BARR: Um...I wouldn't...
HARRIS: Yes or No?
BARR: Could you repeat that question?
HARRIS: I will repeat it. Has the president or anyone at the white house ever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone? Yes or no, please, sir.
BARR: The president or anybody else?
HARRIS: Seems you would remember something like that and be able to tell us.
BARR: Yeah, but I'm trying to grapple with the word "suggest." I mean, there have been discussions of matters out there that they've not asked me to open an investigation.
HARRIS: Perhaps they've suggested?
BARR: I don't know. I wouldn't say suggested.
BARR: I don't know.
HARRIS: Inferred? You don't know? Okay.
How could he not know?
William Barr has already been caught lying to Congress by making believe Robert Mueller had no issues with his four-page pro-Trump summary of the Special Counsel's report since it was reported Mueller ed him twice over its inadequacies.
Sen. Lindsey Graham has become a staunch ally of Donald Trump so he already has started an investigation of the investigators on behalf of Trump, but that isn't stopping Trump from pushing Barr.
This latest move further erodes William Barr's credibility since there is already an Inspector General investigation led by Michael E. Horowitz that is underway to look at this very same issue, as well as the sham Senate investigation.
Like Republicans did to the tragedy of Benghazi, William Barr and Trump's minions will not stop investigating the investigators until they can manipulate and twist enough information out of all their investigations to fit Trump's maniacal claims that there was a "deep state coup" against him.
Meanwhile, they're doing nothing to secure the elections in 2020.
