Earlier this week, Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) admitted that he thinks Barr should be impeached.
He would go on to say that it is probably a waste of time, though, so he will try to hurt Barr by withholding budgetary funds from the Department of Justice.
The DOJ was recently asked about the statements about Barr, and spokesperson Kerri Kupec explained it all simply as a “political thing.”
Impeaching William Barr
Democrats have been unsuccessful at removing Trump from office, so they are going to try to do what they deem to be the next best thing.
The word impeachment echoes of horrific wrongdoing, exactly what the Dems want Americans to think this administration is guilty of.
After having failed to impeach Trump, now they are laying down a narrative that Barr must be impeached.
They have no evidence mind you, but that is not going to stop the attacks.
Believe me, after what the Dems did to Trump, if they thought they had a shred of evidence that could lead to the impeachment of Barr, it would already be in the works.
Instead, we get Nadler peacocking on the nightly news.
The Department of Justice is not even flinching, though, calling out Nadler’s attacks against Barr for what they are… grandstanding and politically motivated.
Kupec stated, “If people have a problem with Bill Barr coming back to the Department of Justice to restore one system of justice, not a two-tiered system, I think that says a lot more about the critics than it does about the attorney general.
“Because that is what he has done again and again.
“He approaches all cases with an open mind.
“He judges them according to the facts and the law without regard to political consideration.
“This is what he promised to at his confirmation, this is what he has done throughout his tenure as attorney general, and that is what he will continue to do until his last day as AG.”
Dems are pulling at any hanging thread they can find to make their case, including calling an assistant U.S. attorney (Aaron Zelinsky) to testify even though he had no interaction with Barr and was giving an opinion rather than fact when he was on the stand.
Barr will have his chance to counter Zelinsky’s testimony and address Nadler’s concerns soon enough on his own, as he is scheduled to testify on The Hill on July 28.
