Barr has been quite a disappointment.

-22 ( +2 / -24 )

Trump own appointed AG and the closest legal person to the president brings to an end Trump's fraud on fraud. it's done and over for Mr Trump.

Let’s have fun paraphrasing Rudy’s Four Seasons masterpiece, with just one word changed:

“Oooohh, Trump said so! Who needs laws and judges and the department of Justice?”

Barr has been one of Trump's top foot soldiers; I almost would have expected more chicanery out of him. But I assume that he is trying to stay in respectable Washington power circles after the Trump administration, and doesn't want to go too far down the conspiracy rabbit hole.

That said, what are the odds that Barr will change his tune regarding his sweeping views of executive powers now that someone with a (D) after their name will be president? I'm thinking it's very, very likely indeed.

ROFL, Barr ditching the trump titanic!!!

I bet he realized the pre-emptive pardons are not worth the paper they will signed on!!

Today’s Trump loyalist “throw out the whole damned election” word of the day: Taqiyya

Trump's toady is slyly edging towards the exit, but running a risk of forfeiting his get-out-of-jail free card from the Pardoner-in-Chief.

So the nation's top lawyer has investigated and says he's seen no evidence of widespread fraud or electronic tampering. The former head of US election security has said the same. Election officials from both sides in the "disputed" states have agreed. All governors from all "disputed" states, both Republican and Democrat, have agreed. Trump has lost more than 40 court cases largely due to a lack of evidence.

It's about time to put this thing to bed.

First the Homeland Security stated it was the safest election in history. Then AG Barr stated no voter frauds.

13 ( +14 / -1 )

Hilarious, absolutely hilarious....

I can't wait to hear what the Trump supporters here will say about this...

"That wasn't him - it was Bill Gates mind control device speaking for him!"

After sullying his once admirable reputation by being Trump's sidekick, Barr has determined its better try to salvage some respect before he leaves...

Barr has gotten off the Trump Crazy Train...

How true. Unitary Executive stalwarts seem surprisingly low key when Dems are in charge. Go figure!

Next the SC will dismiss any cases filed by Trump.

The only fraud is the current amoral and unethical occupant of the White House ... period.

11 ( +13 / -2 )

From clean poll to less voter fraud (Biden Team), now from no proof to no decisive proof, Barr is too good for this AFP reporter.

-3 ( +2 / -5 )

OK, let's tally the score;

The Repub Governors and Repub Sec of States all say no fraud...

Repub Head of Cyber Security said no fraud...

Repub Attorney General Barr says no fraud....

Trump's own Repub lawyers all say in court under oath - "we are not alleging fraud"....

Trump says "massive fraud and send me money to fight it"....

With that, Trump replaces the Prince of Nigeria as the top scam artist of the decade...

Barr has gotten off the Trump Crazy Train.

I think he knows he will be shoved off quite soon for not delivering a Hunter Biden conviction.

6 ( +8 / -2 )

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr said, according to the AP.

That's pretty declarative, isn't it... Or said in other words, President Trump, you're a Loser...

I wonder who the next person of the "best, bigly brilliant, most superb" team will be to turn and immediately become "scum"...

Pence? Pompeo? Both of them want their chance at the Oval Office...

Pretty soon its just going to be Donald and Rudy sitting alone in the bunker, commiserating...

The frauds are the people still supporting Trump's bogus claims when even Republican hand-picked officials are acknowledging,albeit reluctantly that Trump is a one time president and his @ss has got to go.It's been embarrassing and I'm not even American.As flawed as the democratic system is,it's better than what's out there in a lot of other countries,so just stop it.

In realising Trump would have 0% chance of winning, Barr made that decisive statement to let the whole world know that apart from being Trump's puppet, he is still a man of conscience and braveness. Getting sacked for a good cause like this at this time is a real blessing for Barr.

Swing-state counties that used Dominion voting machines mostly voted for Trump

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/12/01/swing-state-counties-that-used-dominion-voting-machines-mostly-voted-trump/

A review of 10 key states (Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin) finds that Dominion systems were used in 351 of 731 counties. Trump won 283 of those counties, 81 percent of the total. He won 79 percent of the counties that didn’t use Dominion systems.

In counties that used Dominion systems, Biden got 888,259 votes to Trump’s 851,069. In counties that didn’t use Dominion systems, Biden got 1.54 million votes to Trump’s 1.52 million. In other words, if you eliminated every county that used Dominion systems, Biden still got more votes.

The Georgia Secretary of State's statement should be enough to move any GOPer with an inch of integrity left in them.

Unfortunately integrity and the GOP don't seem too compatible these days!!!

Free trade is good, they told us. The free flow of international capital benefits everyone, they told us. So, we can only conclude, without doubt, that it is good for the economy to learn that a major investor in Dominion's holding company is the government of a certain sovereign state... Hmmm, can you guess which one?

SEC filings: The parent company of Dominion Voting Systems received $400 million from an Investment Bank in Switzerland that is 75% owned by the Chinese government. UBS Securities is a Swiss investment bank which owns 24.99% of UBS Securities Co LTD, a Chinese Investment Bank. The remaining 75% of UBS Securities CO LTD is owned by the Chinese government,” states the report.

And now we also know why there was so much Chinese interest in Hunter Biden. It may also explain attorney Lin Wood's very unexpected call for martial law this morning.

Our country is headed to civil war. A war created by 3rd party bad actors for their benefit - not for We The People.

Communist China is leading the nefarious efforts to take away our freedom.

@realDonaldTrump should declare martial law.

It's getting increasingly difficult to ignore the serious national security aspects of the post-election situation.

Georgia election officials have received numerous threats including death threats. Georgia's secretary of state has reportedly received death threats along ... the election to the secretary of state's wife via multiple email addresses.

"A Georgia election official urged President Trump Tuesday to condemn threats against election officials doing their jobs.

Gabriel Sterling, voting-system implementation manager at the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office, said a contractor in Gwinnett County, Ga., received death threats after being falsely accused of manipulating election data. Other election officials in Georgia and elsewhere around the country have also said they received threats."

The White House declined to comment.

How many much disappointment Trump can digest at this pace ? Walls are closing in and at some point he will have to face the truth: he is disappointed with himself.

Oh it gets better. Later today it was announced the DoJ is investigating allegations of a bribery scheme involving campaign donations to secure a Presidential pardon. A highly redacted court document released today refers to a "secret lobbying scheme" directed at "senior White House officials" to gain a presidential "pardon or reprieve of sentence" for an unnamed individual. The filing indicates that the lobbyists and lawyers contacted White House officials requesting a presidential pardon or reprieve, citing the "past substantial campaign contributions" and "anticipated future substantial political contributions" from a donor.

A fitting end to this Presidency and possibly Bill Barr's insurance from being fired, as that might look an awful lot like obstruction of justice.

To those who think Barr finally discovered integrity, always remember he was the one behind the tear gassing of peaceful protestors so that trump could waddle across and grope a Bible.

11 ( +12 / -1 )

I'm sure Barr could have probably been held up in some type of seriously messy litigation if he kept playing Trump loyalty card and utterly violate the constitution... I think that is the only reason he had to stop his POTUS ONLY AG and realise that he's going up against the people of the nation's decision and can be held accountable for violating our constitutional rights.

I can see the case now, The people of the US vs. Barr, and The people of the US vs. Trump.

Hahaha!

waiting for it....you can hear the fevered fingers of the Trump(ets) warming up.

’Barr was always a traitor and a despicable person!’

hahaha!

Both sides. It’s bad.

"A Georgia election official urged President Trump Tuesday to condemn threats against election officials doing their jobs.

You are joking right?

The White House declined to comment.

Funny, now liberals demand answers, rich. Can’t stop laughing.

Barr has been quite a disappointment.

Oh, I agree. Up to this decision, for sure.

What a lackey Barr was redacting Mueller's report on Trump's interference, knowing Trump was not exculpable in his dealing with Russia.

But, even Barr found Trump's lies too much to bear when it came to Donald placing his own autocratic delusions and wrong actions over the democracy of the USA.

As becks song went

Oh Donald Time to go you're the loser baby and Biden's the president
