From Wonkette...

Looking at the Barr letter as a legal document is exactly the mistake they want us to make.

The letter is entirely political, as their defense of him has been since the beginning.

Politics is a matter of feelings, not facts. Law is the domain of facts.

The letter carefully skirts objective facts in a very lawyerly way.

So letís look at what Barr wants us not to see, shall we?

Trump remains deeply, even historically unpopular.

He and his children face multiple ongoing investigations in jurisdictions they canít control.

We know heís a cheat and a liar because heís been telling us so his whole life.

Heís cheated on all three wives, bragged during a debate that cheating on his taxes makes him smart, cheated his business partners, cheated his subcontractors.

All that is known, objective fact.

Yet they would have us believe that heíd never cheat on his country.

Thatís the real question here. And theyíre tied to him like Ahab to Moby Dick.

So they won the day. Big deal. They did so at enormous risk to them in 2020 and after.

1. True that...

I don't see this as a win for the Trump Administration...

Mueller punted to Barr, and Barr punted to Congress. Neither one was a profile in courage, obviously.

The only patriots in all this are the Democrats in Congress, and given the insight into how Trump does business, they have plenty to go after.

Bottom line, Trump hired a national security advisor, campaign chair, deputy campaign chair, personal attorney/national party finance co-chair, and a dozen other losers who have consistently proven themselves untrustworthy for the positions they were given - and the GOP as an institution and organization have accepted that bottom line, which indicts them as just as bad.

Comes down to the reality that Trump is surrounded by crooks that he hired... "I'm not a crook" didn't work for Nixon; I don't see that as really a winning slogan for Trump.

Using Nixon as the template, it's worth remembering Nixon won re-election in '72, despite multiple scandals and the debacle in SE Asia; and yet he didn't finish a second term.

Keep the faith.

Be interesting to see if Haley replaces Pence, who couldn't be elected dogcatcher in Indiana at the moment, as I understand it.

I could see her as a Ford type of caretaker.
