President Trump rightly commuted Roger Stone’s politically motivated and decided conviction and sentence. John Durham and Attorney General Barr’s excuse of “pandemic” was stripped away the very first day of leftist mass street protests. If thousands and tens of thousands can march and shout slogans shoulder to shoulder, John Durham can interview every stinking witness and suspect and can present his case to a grand jury which most certainly can “safely” meet.
This is all a leftist and deep state ruse. It is deception by the supposedly straight-arrow Barr. If they will not indict now, if they delay until after the election, then they are enemies of the Constitution. They are, in fact, hoping for Biden to win or at least for a House and Senate in Democrats hands so they can avoid the enormous pain actually challenging the deep state, the uniparty in Washington with the media and economic elite wings of the statist establishment.
Apparently John Huber and Barr are in the middle of calculating which way they think the chips will fall in November.
Conservative legal eagle Undercover Huber reacted to this news on Twitter. “A Biden administration will fire every US attorney on day one, especially John Durham,” he tweeted. “If his investigation doesn’t produce results before the election, it never will.”
Undercover Huber went on to point out that the Mueller probe yielded almost instantaneous results, as opposed to the more sluggish Durham probe.
President Trump, remarking on his commutation of Roger Stone’s sentence puts the spotlight back on Barr’s supposed commitment to “equal” justice.
Roger Stone was treated horribly. Roger Stone was treated very unfairly. Roger Stone was brought into this witch hunt, this whole political witch hunt and the Mueller scam — it’s a scam, because it’s been proven false. And he was treated very unfairly, just like General Flynn was treated unfairly; just like Papadopoulos was treated unfairly. They’ve all been treated unfairly.
And what I did —
Q Will you give them clemency too?
THE PRESIDENT: What I did — I will tell you this: People are extremely happy because, in this country, they want justice. And Roger Stone was not treated properly.
So I’m very happy with what I did. He — I commuted his sentence, and by commuting, he now has the right to go and — hey, look, he had a forewoman —
Q Sir, what about a jury?
THE PRESIDENT: Quiet.
Q A jury decided this, sir.
THE PRESIDENT: Quiet. Quiet.
He had a forewoman — he had a forewoman who was horrendous. She should have never been on the jury. The judge should’ve so ruled. The judge didn’t do that. Take a look at the record. The judge didn’t do that. Take a look at the forewoman. He should’ve had another trial. Roger Stone was treated very badly.
Now, take a look at Comey, take a look at McCabe, take a look at the two lovers, Strzok and Page. Take a look at all these people that are walking around and they lied to Congress, and they leaked and they did everything else — a lot of other things. Take a look at Biden, Sleepy Joe. Take a look at Obama. And they spied on Donald Trump’s campaign. Those are the people — let me just tell you something: Those are the people that should be in trouble.
Attorney General Barr has made a great deal of noise, but has shown not one shred of active concern for “equal” justice. He has not presided over even one early morning heavy FBI team raid, followed by on-camera perp-walk. He had the complete authority to throw as many resources at the supposed investigation as Mueller did. Indeed he had the whole Department of Justice and the FBI at his disposal. It is entirely his fault, and his intent, that the Durham “investigation” has been as slow as it has been. COVID-19 was just another fig leaf, another fan for the fellow’s fan dance.Published in
