Rudy Vents to Trump That Bill Barr Is Screwing Up His Hunter Play

Source: The Daily Beast

Weeks after Donald Trumpís lawyer Rudy Giuliani first pushed the Hunter Biden files and a collection of sordid dirt to the New York Post in a last-ditch effort to drag his client across the 2020 finish line, both he and the president, as well as several of Trumpís political lieutenants, have grown frustrated at the lack of impact itís had.

But rather than conceding that the broader public might not be interested, Trump and Giuliani have instead put the blame for the failure to break through in part on Attorney General William Barr.

In the aftermath of the New York Post reporting earlier this monthófor which Trump had personally greenlighted Giulianiís decision to act as the paperís sourceóthe former New York City mayor has spoken with President Trump both about the Hunter Biden materials and what could be done about them from a law enforcement perspective, according to a White House official and a source close to Giuliani. Recently, the president and Giuliani discussed their mutual frustrations with the lack of action from Barr and FBI Director Chris Wray saying that the emails and Hunter files have provided legal ammunition to probe the Bidens, the person close to Giuliani said.

The Trump attorney had also advised the president that the events of the past two weeks underscore why Trump should fire Wray, arguing that it shows that the current FBI director is an anti-Trump subversive, according to the White House official. This official was not aware of Giuliani making as harsh a comment about Barr. Reached for comment on Wednesday night, Giuliani told The Daily Beast: ďI donít comment on my conversations with my client.Ē

1. The whole Hunter Biden thing has been an abject failure

That these fools are still trying to gin it up is truly hilarious.

7. Barr knows donnie is going to lose and has decided to cut

his losses rather then risk even more legal jeopardy when the new AG starts pulling back the layers of corruption.

9. I have no doubt that Barr sees Trump losing the election and the

new Biden Admin investigating the Trump Admin's dirty tricks. So, Barr is now tossing sand into Trump's gearbox to prevent the ultimate dirty trick that could touch Barr -- the stealing of the 2020 election. That's right, Donnie. Bill is no longer working for you.

16. Something I've always wondered about Barr...

If Biden wins, will Barr still hang on to the thought that the President should have almost unlimited power? Did he ever believe that such power should be extended to a President who doesn't align with his political views? Serious question here since Barr seemed to make a name for himself by espousing his view in an imperial Presidency.

20. If Barr survives to the inauguration of Biden, I think he will try to pitch his idea of an imperial

presidency to Biden, if even only as a device to reverse the damage done by Trump. Of course, he will offer himself to Biden as the "Minister of the Interior" to implement Biden wishes. He will have to try, and I'm sure Biden will fire him before he gets an audience to present his offer.

22. More of Barr's shenanagans




Elie Honig

Revealing:

In 2016, Erdogan asked Biden to remove @PreetBharara
from the SDNY to derail the Halkbank case. Biden declined.

In 2018, Erdogan asked Trump to dump the case. Barr then leaned on the SDNY to go easy; Berman pushed back, and got fired.

Turkish Bank Case Showed Erdoganís Influence With Trump
