With numerous serious issues facing our country, Democrats threw them aside and called a Congressional hearing where they demanded that Barr hand over the Mueller report. The problem with this, is that the Attorney General was already going to hand over the report; that’s his job.
Then they made it appear that Barr is trying to protect President Trump and is doing something unprecedented by only giving them a redacted report; this is an outright lie. It would be against the law for him to turn over the entire report because of laws protecting innocent peoples’ names that had nothing of substance to give to the investigators and of course to protect CIA sources and methodologies for the acquisition of information. These are national security issues.
The fact is, Barr told Democrats during his confirmation hearing that he would turn over the portions of the Mueller report that he was authorized by law, to do. He hid nothing. What he’s doing didn’t come out of the blue. Democrats knew Barr would turn over the report, there was no reason for them to subpoena the DOJ except for misleading their constituents that something nefarious was going on and they were going to get to the bottom of it. They also know the laws preventing Barr from turning over the entire report.
I’ve known throughout my political lifetime that politicians can’t be completely trusted, and they’ll lie from time to time for political gain, but the frequency of lies and their blatant disregard for truth, has reached astronomical levels. They don’t even try to be sneaky about it, they just walk up to the podium and lie to the press with reckless abandon. They know they don’t need to worry about it because many of their constituents are like sheep. They hear what they want to hear. They don’t conduct due diligence to see if what their representatives are saying makes common sense and that it’s logical. The bottom line is they lie because they can get away with it, as even the mainstream media won’t call them out as they’re just an extension of their political Party.
