jimc91:  A general statement is easy to toss out there...  What did Barr say that was a lie?  

 

 

Since you asked....................

Now, if a fresh observer to the Russia collusion circus only heard from Democrats, he might not know that the Mueller report had been public for weeks—sifted through and debated extensively. He certainly wouldn’t know that no criminality was uncovered. But most people heard something else. And Barr’s greatest sin had been preempting the collusion spin for the first time.

Go to your local courtroom sometime. When you hear a verdict of "not guilty", that does not mean he is exonerated or even that he is not guilty.

The person on trial (or Trump in this case) is "assumed innocent" since they couldn't find proof of guilt.

 

It's a truly binary thing. After 2+ years of investigating, Mueller found nothing that he could say Trump did wrong with respect to colluding with the Russians or fixing the election.

 

Is there a problem with the left's understanding of this simple concept?


There was no trial. But there was an investigation that provided plenty of evidence for Congress to consider and act upon as they see fit. Barr is acting on behalf of the president to stand in the way, i.e. obstruct, the ability of Congress to do its Constitutional duty.

 

Then he totally lied when he said that he didn't know what Mueller thought about his "summary." He knew exactly what Mueller thought, and had no intention of letting that cat out of the bag. However, the truth always manages to find its way into the light of day.

There was no mention of "guilt" in the 400 page report or Barr's 4 page summary. No mention of guilt means to even the most simplistic mind NOT GUILTY!


What part of "does not exonerate" does the right not understand?

As you know I consider this forum to be a waste of time, so have limited myself lately to Twitter, where I follow hundreds of conservative journalists and former SEALS-turned-bloggers. I gotta tell ya, it's way more fun than reading the same old, same old tired yet blustery 'opinions' of leftists here. Not to mention efficiently informative. 

 

Anyway that's my 192,355th attempt at getting you to see the light. :Smiley Wink

Thanks @Epster  wishing you all good gifts as well!  I have been on Twitter now for a little over 3 years and concur with being able to select who to add to your news feed.  it's a lot of fun and you have a very direct line with other like minded folks.

 

I must admit, I miss your posts here, please don't be a stranger!  Log in and share some of the info from the Seals you follow.  BTW, My Granddaughter just shipped out on a Navy assault ship that has over 1500 Marines aboard headed for an un-named place.

 

Stay well!

It really seem the dimms hate Barr because he is very specific and accurate.


When the author of the report you are summarizing says "This does not exonerate the President of obstruction charges" and Barr says "This exonerates the President of obstruction charges", it pretty much shows Barr is lying. 

 

Don't thank me. I am happy to point out the facts.  Do you think Trump will take Barr with him when he retires to Moscow?
