If President Donald Trump's tweeting is any sign, Donald Trump is definitely one of the most translucent presidents ever to carry the office. The commander in chief is definitely not scared to publish his opinions, irrespective of who may get hurt – which is pretty much everybody on the left. Now, however, the billionaire businessman-turned-leader is getting a bit of pushback from Attorney General William Barr, who states the President's type-happy hands are making it hard to carry out his job.
This latest onslaught of tweets and Barr's aggravation occurs after a sentence of nine years in prison was advised for Roger Stone for lying under oath, witness tampering, and obstruction of justice. A single session, the President tweeted, “Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress!”
However, it is this tweet that has tweaked the Dems into weeping for one more impeachment case, this time resistant to the attorney general:
“The President has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case.” A.G. Barr. This doesn't mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!”
Barr, who actually is really a staunch supporter of Trump, rejected the left's allegations that the President is affecting the investigations but proposed the President avoid tweeting about the Department of Justice (DOJ) affairs.
“I'm not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it's Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the President. I'm going to do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”
“Do you go forward with what you think is the right decision, or do you pull back because of the tweet? And that just sort of illustrates how disruptive these tweets can be.”
“The President wasn't bothered by the comments at all, and he has the right, just like any American citizen, to publicly offer his opinions,” said White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham. She added that Trump uses social media to fight for the American people and against fake news. “The President has full faith and confidence in Attorney General Barr to do his job and uphold the law,” she said.
The media, however, has gone hog outrageous regarding the tweet that they can genuinely feel the President is still attempting to mistreat his power, just a seven days after getting acquitted on an article of impeachment charging that very thing.
Liberty Nation Legal Affairs Editor Scott D. Cosenza said:
“The media want to wish it into the Saturday Night Massacre. But the wants and wishes of CNN/NYT/MSNBC are not a basis for a new impeachment or proof that the last attempt was warranted. The DOJ is an executive agency, and the President of the United States is ultimately the one in charge.”
Barr, who said he had already spoken with his staff regarding the proposed Stone sentence and its severity before Trump's tweet, is now catching flak from the press and the left who are only too eager to suggest he is just another one of the President's patsies, there to do the commander in chief's bidding. “Once the tweet occurred, I thought ‘now what do I do,'” Barr said. He reiterated that he has not “discussed the Roger Stone case at the White House.” However, he added: “The fact that the tweet's out there and correspond to things that we are doing at the department give grist to the mill.”
Reality, supposition, rumor, conjecture – it matters not because, if it supplies the smallest possibility to injure Trump's bid for reelection, the Dems will certainly go for it like a dog with a bone.
