Unfortunately, Barf chose to take every opportunity during his appearances before Congress both today and yesterday to prove that he is the Orange Monster’s personal attorney and not the Attorney General representing the people of the United States. Today, in fact, when the AG said, “I think spying on a political campaign is a big deal,” he revealed all of his most nasty and poisonous spots as a toad for the president.
Indeed, by using the term “spying” to refer to legal and judicially authorized surveillance of the president, toady Barf has supplied enough oxygen to keep the demagogues and the deep state conspiracy theorists on the far right (i.e. at the Fox Noise Channel) running on full tilt for another few months. In this, Bill Barf stepped way over the line. It is now clear that he intends to ride roughshod over a Department of Injustice, and will leave no stone unturned in bringing disgrace upon both himself and the Department he heads.
As we now know, Bill Barf will use the full power of his office as Attorney General to make certain that as little as possible of Mueller’s report on the Russia scandal and the president’s crimes of obstruction of justice ever reaches the public eye.
But one way or another, either through leaks, subpoenas, and/or the testimony of Mueller himself before Congress and under oath, the truth will come out. The Mueller report is too important, too big for a toad like Barf to effectively repress it for too much longer. We will, in time, see the report and Congress will hear all that they need to hear to begin impeachment hearings. And when the truth comes out, once the American people have read what Mueller actually made quite plain in his report, the spots on the AG’s toad skin will be so glaringly obvious that he might need a security service to save him from a mob of angry Americans who refuse to take one second more of his nonsense.
Today, the AG used up what little time he had left by playing games with what little is left of justice or the rule of law. By doing so, he has defiled his oath of office and betrayed his country. In covering up the president’s crimes of obstruction of justice, he may have committed a similar crime himself. His reputation, which was already teetering treacherously on a cliff, now lies in tatters at the bottom, permanent and unredeemable, not matter what he might choose later to undo the damage he was wrought. Past the point of no return, history will be exceedingly unkind to Bill Barf, Toad in Chief of a Criminal President. One day, Bill Barf will take his place in a Hall of Infamy, where he will forever reside, alongside Nixon, Benedict Arnold, the Orange Monster and a few infamous others.
Releasing a highly redacted and color-coded Mueller report to Congress in the next few days that resembles a rainbow, as Mr. Barf has promised to do, is NOT going to cut it. Not any longer. Not now. Not when—despite Bill Barf’s best efforts to protect the president—over 70% of Americans now believe that their president has committed crimes, both before taking office and after.
As I pointed out in my last post, Mueller’s investigators—who never leaked once throughout their 22-month investigation—have begun to leak, letting their dissatisfaction with the Orange Monster’s Attorney General become public. They have leaked little thus far, but their leaks were meant to confront Bill Barf with an implicit threat: “Give the true contents of the Mueller Report to Congress and the American people, or we will do it for you!”
However long it takes—and let’s pray it is soon—the truth in the Mueller report will find its way into the public domain, through subpoenas and witnesses testifying before Congress on national TV, or through leaks. If, for example, a copy of the full Mueller report is dropped off at The Washington Post or The New York Times, the Attorney General will be a toasted toad.
In essence, the AG toasted his own toad skin today. He made his choice—choosing to protect a profane president over adhering to the rule of law and to justice. When the truth comes out, when we read the full Mueller report, Bill Barf will have nothing left to do but take his well-deserved place in the Hall of Infamy forever.
