Barr Forms Team to Review FBI’s Actions in Trump Probe

Attorney General William Barr has assembled a team to review controversial counterintelligence decisions made by Justice Department and FBI officials, including actions taken during the probe of the Trump campaign in the summer of 2016, according to a person familiar with the matter.

This indicates that Barr is looking into allegations that Republican lawmakers have been pursuing for more than a year — that the investigation into President Donald Trump and possible collusion with Russia was tainted at the start by anti-Trump bias in the FBI and Justice Department.

“I am reviewing the conduct of the investigation and trying to get my arms around all the aspects of the counterintelligence investigation that was conducted during the summer of 2016,” Barr told a House panel on Tuesday.

Barr’s inquiry is separate from a long-running investigation by the Justice Department’s inspector general, said the person, who asked not to be identified discussing sensitive matters. The FBI declined to comment. Barr said he expected the inspector general’s work to be completed by May or June.

Asked about the prospect of such an inquiry, Trump told reporters Wednesday that he’s most interested in the attorney general “getting started on going back to the origins” of what the president called “an attempted coup.” He said “what they did was treason.”

I’m really looking forward to two solid years of breathless 24/7/365 reporting of every leak and rumor. Especially the indictment countdown:

“This is Day 243 of the Barr Investigation. When will Obama be indicted?”

Meanwhile, in other news, fuck HBO. I’ll take my chances on the spoilers and wait for the DVD release this Christmas. (Assuming the spoilers don’t reveal that the final season was a flaming pile of SJW crap)

Joe Biden Has Touched A Lot Of Lives

I’m not even back to 75% of klown normal. But I’m working on it. The VA doc said I was dehydrated and depleted of minerals. Drinking water doesn’t replace all the other stuff. I keep drinking lots of fluids and every hour or two I gotta pee bad, and it is yellow pee, not the clear stuff. I feel like I am barely keeping up.

This is an open thread.

Things That Make Sense

Was Obama the ultimate alpha-male?


Former White House advisor Valerie Jarrett complained in her new book that there was a “general macho atmosphere” in the Obama White House.

Jarrett explained that after noticing that the overall dynamic in the West Wing was “causing women to feel uncomfortable,” she took former President Barack Obama aside and confronted him.

“If you notice, in meetings, the women rarely talk,” Jarrett reportedly told the president. “And when you aren’t there to ask their opinion, they are becoming increasingly mute.”

After she said that, Obama invited a number of the senior women to the White House in response and, over dinner, discussed how they could make things better.

It’s not his fault. A guy like Barack just oozes manliness from every pore. Men want to be him, chicks want to be with him.

“I’m LeBron, baby.” – Barack Obama
