Democrat leaders are spiking their criticisms at Attorney General William Barr so that it will last until the weekend and the Sunday morning shows.
They want to destroy his reputation so that whatever he finds against them when he learns about the origins of the Mueller investigation and other things Democrats are responsible for, they can lay down the claim of bias and untrustworthy at his feet for their voters.
On Thursday, Democrats and the opposition media went into overdrive accusing the Attorney General of lying to the Wednesday’s Senate panel. Barr chose not to participate in the House Judiciary Committee hearing, and they made fun of him with a Kentucky Fried Chicken prop, and these are supposed to be adults.
One thing missing from all of this mayhem is that Barr has given open access to viewing the unredacted Mueller Report at the Department of Justice. Not one Democrat has gone over to take a look but they are crying out like spoiled children.
Democrats left an empty chair for Barr as they opened a hearing that would go nowhere. Afterward, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) led her press conference by accusing Barr of committing a crime.
“He lied to Congress, and if anybody else did that it would be considered a crime,” she said. “Nobody is above the law; not the president of the United States, and not the attorney general.”
Pelosi did not rule out jail time as a potential punishment if Barr is later found to have broken the law.
“I really lost sleep last night after watching over and over again this testimony of the attorney general of the United States,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi is exaggerating again. Mueller had every opportunity to write his own summary of the investigation but did not. Barr wrote his own which followed the conclusion of Muellers report which is completely factual.
The man willingly volunteered to appear before both committees; notice she gives no examples of what she accuses him of as a “lie.” Note to Nancy: It was Eric Holder who referred to himself as “Obama’s Wing Man.” Another note to Nancy: The entire report is available to you and the other members!
The Democratic Party seems poised to become irrelevant after the 2020 elections. The party has no discernible agenda for America, except promises of free stuff for votes, no record of any legislative accomplishment since taking control of the House, and no candidate for President who can win a national election.
But worst of all, the radicals which not seem to make up a large part of the party have pledged to take full control of the party, pass moderates out, and if elected implement the most socialist agenda the country has ever seen.
The witch hunt is over, Pelosi and the Democrats should be working on legislation that will make our country great, rather than attempting to reverse an election where they rightfully lost.
