Bill Barr: The “Cover-Up General”
At the center of the criticism is the chief artic­ulator of Bush’s imperial presidency,” we reported in 1992, “the man who wrote the legal rationale for the Gulf War, the Panama invasion, and the officially sanctioned kidnapping of foreign nationals abroad.”

"Attorney General William Barr Is the Best Reason to Vote for Clinton"
October 27, 1992


A federal judge accuses the Justice De­partment of trying to “shape” a case in­volving illegal loans to Iraq.

The House Judiciary Committee blasts federal attor­neys for compromising their reputation for impartiality in the investigation of a com­puter-software theft.
CIA officials charge a deputy attorney general with advocating the suppression of evidence in a sensitive sentencing hearing.


To even the most avid scandalmonger, these may sound like the ravings of a fe­vered Orwellian imagination. But in fact they are all part of a litany of wrongdoing leveled at George Bush’s Justice Depart­ment in the past two months alone.

And at the center of the criticism is the chief artic­ulator of Bush’s imperial presidency, the man who wrote the legal rationale for the Gulf War, the Panama invasion, and the officially sanctioned kidnapping of, foreign nationals abroad — Attorney General Wil­liam P. Barr.

1. 2 quotes that say it all:

@AshaRangappa_
What people don't seem to grasp is that Barr, Mitch, and the rest are playing for keeps. They don't intend for Democrats to control the federal government again - ever, or at least in their lifetime. One-party rule is the goal, not good governance or the common good.

Bill Barr is behaving as if he already knows the outcome of our election and thus not particularly worried that he will be held accountable.

3. Don't forget this. "...having abetted the cover-up of a possible crime ..."

"The Justice Department (Barr) stands accused by the nation’s premier intelligence agency of having abetted the cover-up of a possible crime, even to the point of shaving evidence. "
