Attorney General William Barr’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee was a demonstration of what a totalitarian takeover will look like if allowed to continue.
Barr shirked his duty as AG. He outright lied. He stalled, wasting time, on certain questions, pretending not to hear the question or quibbling over simple words. And refused to answer other questions.
He has truly become Trump’s fixer.
The question is:
Is Barr just a pathetic weak man, broken by Trump?
Or, is Barr a dangerous torch-bearer to usher in a tyrant?
Although it is possible that Barr is just a weak broken man who became dazzled by the supposed wealth and power of Trump & Family, we must remember that Barr is not a newbie to the position of Attorney General: he served as AG under President George H. W. Bush.
Barr knows how to be Attorney General, he knows the Law, he knows about serving in Government.
Rather, it’s possible that Barr may see himself as “hero of the Trump tyranny” – twisting our system of law and order to suit his strongman leader.
Right now, we must consider that Barr is dangerous. Barr has pretty much destroyed his previous reputation. Those pundits who assured us that he would uphold the institution of our laws are now disappointed and sorry. These same pundits tell us that Barr will now go down in history as infamous with an asterisk next to his name.
But these pundits may be wrong again if we’re not careful because Trump and his followers are already rewriting history by turning lies into an aberrant truth through social media.
Barr may be looked at as a hero in Trump’s distorted version of history.
It is now time for all members of Congress, both parties, to take this seriously and impeach Barr. We can’t wait for 2020 to play politics and sort this out. Barr is corrupting the very core of our Democratic Republic – our Law. No more time for politeness or playing politics or looking to polls for the next election. Before it’s too late, Congress must begin impeachment, starting with Barr!
