Bill Barr Is Actively Conducting Ukraine-Style Shakedown Schemes All Over The Globe


Donald Trump is on the verge of being impeached for shaking down a foreign power for political dirt, but that isnít stopping his attorney general from actively pressuring American allies in similarly disturbing shakedowns.

As former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum pointed out on Tuesday, Barr ďis putting pressure on allied governments Ö to join him in fabricating accounts disparaging their own people, their own diplomats, their own intelligence services, to confect a story whereby Donald Trump is the victim of the investigation into his connections to Russia.Ē

In other words, Barr Ė at the direction of Trump Ė is pressuring foreign powers to throw their own intelligence communities under the bus in order to confirm Trumpís already-debunked conspiracy theories.




Frum said:

Because Trump doesnít care about any of the policy stuff, he cares about the crazy stuff. Probably the most disturbing thing that Barr is up to is this crazy investigation he is doing, which is also in its own way a replay of the Ukraine problem because he is putting pressure on allied governments, not only Italy but also Australia and others, to join him in fabricating accounts disparaging their own people, their own diplomats, their own intelligence services, to confect a story whereby Donald Trump is the victim of the investigation into his connections to Russia rather than, as we all know, the perpetrator.


Barrís own IG report debunks Trumpís conspiracy theories

The globetrotting attorney general is jetting around the globe trying to build a case to back up the presidentís conspiracy theories, but Barrís own inspector general report has concluded that there was, in fact, sufficient evidence to investigate the Trump campaignís ties to Russia during the 2016 campaign.

Of course, that hasnít stopped Barr, who sees himself as Trumpís personal henchman, not as the nationís top law enforcement leader.

Instead of accepting his own Justice Departmentís IG report, Barr is trashing it and continuing his bogus efforts to coax U.S. allies into backing up the presidentís debunked conspiracy theories.


With the nationís attention fixed on the Ukraine scandal, itís easy to forget that Bill Barr Ė as we speak Ė is running similar pressure campaigns all around the globe.
