“TURNABOUT IS FAIR PLAY”
by Joseph DeMaio, ©2020
(May 19, 2020) — Wait… did I hear that correctly? Did Attorney General Bill Barr just say with respect to John Durham’s work delving into the origins of the Deep State attempted coup d’état that “[a]s to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement based on the information I have today, I don’t expect Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man. Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.”? Did he just say that?
To the untrained ear, that sounds a lot like Mr. Barr may have decided to take a cue from the James Comey crib sheet of how to identify a series of defalcations and crimes, and then declare that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case?”
Faithful P&E readers, understand that Attorney General Barr is light years ahead of his predecessors – both in the current administration as well as, clearly, the Obama administration – in terms of restoring faith in the rule of law and its equal application to all. But his statement, if accurate, should give one pause to reflect. With each passing day, and sometimes hourly, empirical evidence mounts that, at minimum, Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., was not only aware of the seditious plan to oust President Trump from office by whatever means necessary, he likely orchestrated and presided over critical components of the plan.
This, by the way, is the same “POTUS” who “wants to know everything we’re doing” (Emphasis added) in the now-infamous text messages between FBI co-conspirator/paramours Lisa Page and Peter Strzok.
Barr’s statement apparently included this nugget: “The Durham investigation is trying to get to the bottom of what happened. And it will determine whether there were any federal laws broken and if there were, those who broke the law will be held to account. But this cannot be and it will not be a tit-for-tat exercise. We are not going to lower the standards just to achieve a result. The only way to stop this vicious cycle, the only way to break away from a dual system of justice, is to make sure that we scrupulously apply the single and proper standard of justice for everybody.” (Emphasis added).
Wait… “everybody?” Like in “everybody except Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.?” And… “[t]hose who broke the law will be held to account.” And how about “Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others.” Really?
Surely there must be some misunderstanding here: if Barr’s goal is to ensure that the Department of Justice under his leadership is to “make sure that we scrupulously apply the single and proper standard of justice for everybody….,” how can that goal be met if Obama and Biden are excluded?
Moreover, if that exclusion extends not only to indictments or prosecutions, but in addition creates exclusions for “criminal investigations” as well…, then there is, as candidate Donald Trump used to say on the campaign trail, a “YUUUGE problem.” One is reminded of Napoleon the Pig’s statement from Animal Farm: “All animals are equal; but some animals are more equal than others.” Barr’s statement seems to be saying: “All people involved will be subjected to bigger than zero investigation, but Obama and Biden will be subjected to zero investigation.”
One can only hope that Barr will soon “clarify” his statements. Perhaps the qualifier he used – “based on the information I have today” (Emphasis added) – is the answer. “Today,” he (Barr) may have no information which would lead him to believe that Durham’s work would involve criminal investigations of Obama or Biden. However, that does not mean that tomorrow…, or the next day…, or next week…, or at some future date before the running of a statute of limitations, additional information will be brought to his attention warranting a full-blown criminal investigation of both Obama and Biden.
Or perhaps this is laying the groundwork for lulling Obama and Biden into a false sense of security, while preparing to target some of the other “players” in the conspiracy, indicting and/or plea-bargaining them in exchange for their cooperation in revealing the really bad stuff relating to Obama and Biden. Hey, turnabout is fair play …, right?
Time will tell whether Obama and/or Biden will be indicted. Many believe that not only will no indictments of Obama or Biden be forthcoming, but that no indictments or prosecutions of anyone involved in the “soft coup d’état” which the Deep State and its media enablers attempted will happen. Why? Because the Deep State is far deeper, wider and toxic than we have yet imagined.
Cross your fingers and hope that Mr. Barr “clarifies” his statements soon.
